li ir I 4 THE DODGE CITY TIMES. BODGB CITY. SATURDAY. APBIL 3. LARNED. Prom the CbroooMope. A young lady of I bin tillage aays that it it not wicked to aew ou Sunday if you don't use a thimble. Mr. B. F. Etuis has tone east to examine the machinery ef different sugar mills in the interest of the Sugar Company. T. G. Payne hu purchased yoke ot train ed buSilo bull. We also notice that the hon orable gentleman is wearing a plug hat. Mr. Wadsworth, the "bigest" sheep man in the State, shipped into Lamed last week 1 IIW head, mostly uotswoid e, Irom .Missouri Mr. Wharton shot an immense bird of I swan or goose rariety last Tuesday morning, in the bottoms below town. It weighed nine teen pounds and measured seven feet irom tip to tip. Mr. Rider tells us that his sheep never were in such good condition as now, that they are fat and would make nice mutton. lie has only fed a peck of corn per day, since Janu ary last, to each one hundred head. He has 1700 in his liitle flock, and has lost only throe head this winter. KINSLEY. From the Leader. Sow wheat and raise sheep if you desire to become rich prosperous and happy. Mr. I. V. Lewis has sold his flock of sheep, realizing over a thousand dollars above what they cost and expenses. Fires are becoming quite common, hence several insurance companies have withdrawn Irom business in this part ot the country. Business is looking up and we hope io a few weeks that the grand boom that is aweep ing over the eastern cities and towns will striko Kinsley and send lis along on the road to prosperity. A man living in Ilodgeman county rrceiv ed notice of his divorce by the mail Monday, and went up to the county seat and got his license ana cime dick and was married, all me same day. Col. Sellers is superintendent of Dr. Gil man's large irrigation farm on the south side. To say that the farm wi II blossom like the rose under the mansgement of the Colonel is expressing it in mild terms. Our farmers should not be discouraged over the prospects of over production of wheat, but should put in all the spring wheat possible Even spring wheat is a mtsch more profitable and easier produced crop than corn. During the past two weeks we have ! amincd a large number of wheat fields, and while the wheat does not look very promis ing, it is in good growing condition, and wiih sufficient rain in April we will have a good wneat narvet. Quite a number of our citizens are leaving. some going larther west while other are re turning to their former places of abode The places made vacant will soon be filled with new comers, and parties with capital and pluck. It requires a little pluck as well ss considerable money to build up aov nw country, and this country is no exception to the general rule; but we feel safe in saying mat tney mat slay tnrougb tnis season will resp a golden reward. WICHITA. From the Eagle. A stiff east wind set in Tuesday ; the clouds 'lied up at sundown ; tne thunders rolled and ighlning played at night, and this (Wednes day) morning the April shower began to descend. We wish, we could tale every farm er in Ice county by the hand and say "bully. Oar readers will remember several men tions and something of a description in this paper of a channel-boat invented by our fel low townsman A. J. Cook, and of the fact ihtt it had been forwarded to the patent of fice at Washington. Mr. Cook designed the coat lor clearing tne channels ot sandy beded streams like the great Arkansas, He receiv ed word last week that the patent office had determined that the machine would do the work for which it is designed and an order for a patent was therefore issued. For the most part our people have been taking kindly to the tree ordinance and showing the r appreciation of it witdom by cot only obeying its letter, but it spirit at well. Although Wichita has for two years, in the matter of ahade tree, been more amply supplied than any city in the State, yet many hundreds of select tree have been set out this spring. The wonderful growth of trees in this valley is too well understood to require any mention. One thing that hu greatly favored our success in this city hat been the absrnce of stock running at large. A Siiexp Corporatioh. We hav been made acquainted with a new enterprise late ly inaugurated in this city by a stock com- pany which ha been duly incorporated, whote operations will no doubt interest many farmers of the county. It is a company for the purchase of sheep, to be let out on shares. It will be remembered that the Messrs. Hays Bros, two year since brought into this valley a flock of fine wool thoroughbred sheep, which were taken on shares by Mr. I. Fouls, who upon two or three occasions gave his ex perience in handling them through these col umns, the venture proved so prchtanleto both the owners and sharer that it is now proposed to go into the businesl on a large scale. Mr. Hays claims, and for that mitttr satisfactorily shows the immense profits ac cruing iromsQca an invefimeoi. roil oiooas are found to be entirely free from all disease in this valley, and their increase in numbers and yield of wool is simply wonderful. He of the southwest, and all agree as to the profitableness of such a handling. The shares of the joint stock company will be placed at one hundred dollars each, and Mr. Hays says for a series of five years lorty per centum per annum is a low figure for the profits. No taker will be allowed more than a few hun dred dollars worth, for which he must give good security for the keeping and care, for which he is to have half the increase and half the yield. There is a great excitement at present in Lincoln county. New Mexico, over the re cent discovery of very rich mines of what is Known as wire gold, and miners are pouring in from every direction. The ore is very rich, samples Irom the White Oak mine-t as saying as high as $20,000 per ton. These mines are situated about twenty-five miles northwest of Fort Stanton, about seventy five miles west of the Rio Pecos on the big divide between the Bio Pecos and Rio Grande. One shaft has been tunk to a depth of 200 leet, yet tne ore tacen out is as r.ch at the bottom as any found. Placer mining is good, though only a few Mexicans are working at it and with the crudest kind of implements, they are making from three to fire dollars per day. There is an abundance of water and timber and parties with capital could reap a rich harvest either in washing or crushing. It is now conjectured by astronomers thst the comets are a kind of celestial tramps who wander through space at their own sweet will, calling with more or less regularity while on their rounds to see the son and hu attendant planetary system. One of these cosmical vagrants is expected to call on us this year io a perfect blaze of glory. In 1106 it rivalled the sun in brightness, and it ap pears at every successive visit with added brilliancy. In 1843 the Millerites made sure that this comet was the appointed agent that was to bring about the final conflagation of the world. POST OFFICE HCDBII: From 7 a. M. to 0. r. M.
