Thej represent the frontier to be especially adapted to stock raising. This is the tectible Tiew of the situation. The purpose of the company is lo settle stock raiders on their lands in the western part of the State and with that ob ject the Company U encouragirg English stock raisers to emigrate to this country. The compact settlement of the country, east of this point, will in time be of better ad vantage to this section. We most admit that the i dated settlements hate not tended to produce the prospective climatic changes. At much as we desire the settlement of the country, we do not wish to encourage people to come and starve to death. With a few head of cows and poultry, the settler can see his way clear. The great trouble has been, poor settlers depended too much on the soil. Of course, they were notable to wait, their dependence being upon immediate results; but the correct turn is being taken those who are able, are buying cows. A large number of settlers are determined to stay they hare faith in the future of the country. In the meantime we cu auord to wait, abiding the course of events. Gabdex City has an irrigating ditch iour miles long. This taps the river at an islet and brings an abundant supply of water within reach of 6,000 to 10,000 acres of fine land. The farmers are obtaining water from this ditch which assures their crops of which they are lo pay one-tenth for water rent Landis 4 Hollicger have in fcur acres of onions and four acres of potatoes. The Sterling Gatitte siys: this firm is al ways pioneering in some good thing, and we doubt not this new venture will prove both profitable to them and to the settlers. Gar den City farmers being the nut in Kansas to avail tbemslves of the advaatsges of irri gation, will be the first to realize a sure prosperity. Psof. Loomis, of Yale College, at the meeting last week of the National Academy of Scienee at Washington introduced paper in which he accounted for dry atmos phere near the Rocky Mountains. The westerly winds from the Pacific Ocean have their moisture mostly condensed ia passing over the Sierra Nevada, so that between those mountains and the Rocky Mountains the air is generally extremely dry. By passing oTer the Rocky Mountains there is a further condensation of vapor, so that when the air descends on the eastern side of these mountains it is almost destitute ol moisture. Horse thieves are causing considerable trouble on the range. A week ago Tuesday lait a cattle man, by the name of Douglas, bad ten horses stolen, a neighbor the same time had nine head stolen. The thieves, numbering fifteen men, wen overtaken with thirty bead of horses, all sopposed to have been stolen. This being the season of the general round-up, the cattle men were away from their ranches, and a suffeient number could not be gotten together to attack the thieves. We team, however, that pan o, the horses were recovered. KinsleyGrsphie. KANSAS AND ST. LOUIS TRADE. The Globe-Democrat cays: the trade of more Kansas territory is mads directly tri batarr to St Louis by the St Louis and San Francisco Road, which opened its Kan- sea division as far an Augusta on Sunday last. Augusta is eituated forty - fire miles west of Severy, to which point the road has run for several months past. This will bring the road to within n disrsnre of twenty- two miles of Wichita, which is the objective point of the road. Surveys, however, are being made beyond Wichita, and, no doubt, in the near future the road will be extended turner than that point FORT DODGE ITEMS.
