CENSUS ENUMERATORS. The enumerators for taking the United States census in ForJ county have been ap pointed. D. M. Frost, W. C Shinn ami J, II. Dewees for the western districts, and O. W. Potter and II. I. Myton for the eas:ern districts of the county. Excepting the ap pointment of Col. Dewees, the appointments were made upon the recommendation of Lloyd Shinn, who had this authority dele gated to him through the request of Senator Plumb to Superintendent Evans. The office of census enumerator is an im portant one, though in Ford county the emoluments will be small. There was no scramble for the appointments when it was understood the pseudo-statesman of the Globe had the direction ol them. lie ap pears lo hare sacrificed his political friends far his relations his partners, his brothers and his cousins. This is eminently right; but it is not patriotic No wise statesman would hare committed such an egregrious blunder. The sagacious political, official manipulator would have distributed these official crumbs where they would do the most good. In every township could be found a number of men abundantly quali fied for the office of census taker. The ap pointments should hare been conferred upon men who are struggling under the severe difficulties of making homes under ad Terse circumstances. Ye have nothing personally to say against the appointments; we befieTe the appointees are well qualified for the tasks; but the appointments are in exceed ingly bad taste. Frost is under indictment for felony; and wise judgment would hate dictated another appointment. Myton is not a resident of the township to which he is assigned. He says he did not seek the ap pointment; but it is nevertheless an ungrate ful slam upon the resident, of Wheatland township who were applicants for the posi tion. The wise statesman could have avert ed this political calamity; and thus avoided placing our friend Myton in an awkward po sition, as be has quite enough to do to attend to his other official positions. In respect to the appointments of Shinn and Potter, they are well enough, except that Mr. Potter ho'ds the office of County Clerk, and Mr. Shinn is Lloyd Shinn' brother. Of course this does not disqualify these gentlemen, but it shows within what narrow bounds a little political influence can be subserved. Plumb is looking ahead for his re-election as United States Senator. He will want the vote of Ford county. Tie is in a fair way of getting it, by making a political henchman of the profound statesman of the Globe. Census Supervisor Evans wants the office of State Superintendent of Public Instruction. He is using this census patronage to the ac complishment of that purpose. He expects the Ford county delegates to the State Con vention to vote for him. If he has in any way endangered his prospects in this county he can attribute this lack of support to the unwise direction of Plumb's young man. Probably all this may be fitting. It is well to make the best of it with the outgoing Administration. There has been a good deal of political imbecility in Hayes' policy; and to extend this infirmity to the frontier is in keeping with the line of that policy. There is some apology in the instance of our young neighbor of the Globe. Political indiscre tions can be wiped out with age and expe rience. We hare been through the ordeal of political mistakes, and can heartily sympa thize with the young man who is better fit ted for a sorghum-grower than dispenser of political crumbs and the role of a statesman. Tildes is ahead on the Democratic side at a candidate for the Presidency. The barrel is getting in Its work in good order, and Tllden stock is looming op to a decided advantage. Tildtn hat captured Missouri. Toe Rocky Ford people now have the largest irrigating ditch in the county, and it is propose!, we understand, to extend it two miles this season. A considerable area of small grain has already been put in there. A. Russell has planted 00 acres oats; G. W. Swink, 20 acres watermelons; A. Nichols, SO acres barley, wheat and oats; Gauger Brothers, CO acres oats and barley; Jas. Snowdeo, 40 acres; A. Enyart, 33 acres; Downen & Bro., 60 acres small grain. Some attention is being directed to fruit culture and tree planting. All have a few catalpa tree'. Wm. Mathews his 230 Concord grapes and 400 plant trees. J. II. Swift has 250 grapes, including seventeen Varieties from California, and is confident of their success. Be had also gooseberries, rasp berries and strawberries. UAnimat Leader. The New York Herald, which is a polit ical weather-cock turnini lo the winnicc side in a political contest, now favors the nomination of Gen. Grant for the Presidency. The Herald always gets on the winning side when the proper time comes. It sajs Gen Grant will be nominated, not only on the first ballot, but nominated with such a dis play of eflusion and outpouring enthusiasm ss will make his rivals forget that they had ever been arrayed aeainst him as oonasinir candidates. It declares that Gen. Grant is the only fit candidate for the Presidency for the reason that those, who are best qualified refuse to run against him, declaring their opinion of his superior fitness. The Colordo Farmer 'for the thousandth time1 pronounces it a disgrace to lha farmers of this state that beef should be sent us from the east. The same theory would make it a disgrace to our miners that eastern moner is brought to Colorado. The fact is, both larmers and mioers are doing their level best, but the astonishing development ol the country outruns ootn calculation and capa bility. W ho would have thought a year ago that beef must be provided for 250.000 extra people this year? But the farmer must calculate at least three years ahead to meet iuc uciuauu ur oeei. There was some wind Sunday and Mon day. Bat It Mowed up the rain. Pawsee county claims th blue ribbon over the whole State for heavy fleeces. Colorado has instructed for Gen. Grant. The hero has a large majority of the dele gates. Conobesi acted wisely for once in appro priating $20,000 for artesian wells in the Rocky Mountain states. Tub Signet learns that Fred Smith with 2400 head of sheep, and two other parties, one with 6000 and the other with 3000 head are on the road, all cxpectirg to stop at Cimarron to do their shearing. Mr. Smith sold his flock. The mow in Ibe mountains is melting rapidly, and has more than half disippeared. What of the theory that our rain comes from the West and from the snows of the Rockies? All boshl Lsrned Chroaoscope. Nix! All rain. LUNG and liver comolainla are rert.inlr Denentted, often cured, by a free consump tion of onions, either cooked or raw. CnMa yield to them like magic If this esculent oe tacen at night an oner.se will be wanting by morning, and the good effects will amply compensate tor the trifling annoyance. Taken regularly, they greatly promote the health of the lungs and digestive organs. An extract made br boilinr down the aim of onions to a syrup, and taken at a medicine answers the purpose very well, but fried, roasted or boiled onions are better. Numberless herds of wild horses range the prairies ol Western Kansas in all their native freedom. They usually go in herds of from two to twenty-five. Each herd has its leader who watches and protects his herd with great self abnegation and intelligence. At this time of the year they fall in easy prey to the experienced hunter, and are being caught in great numbers. m In the pastoral regions of Texas one thousand head of stock cattle, at usually found on ranches, will double their number within three years. This allows for losses of age, disease and accident. The net in crease is at the rate of thirty-three and one- third per cent, per annum. This accounts, in part, for the fortunes araimnltted ia a few years by cattle raisers. Dx. Bandell, ef Louis-rills, is authority for the statement that a mole, now in the Jsrdin d'Acclimatation, in Paris, has brought no fewer than six foals some by sebrse. tome by an ass and some by a stallion. This fertility in a hybrid is remarkable. A member of papers of this Congressional district are urging the uselessness of holding a party convention. It is conceded en all sides that Hon. Thos. Ryan will have no opposition, and it is urged that a nominating convention is a piece of foolishness. Coun cil Grove Republican. It ought to be more generally known that wheat flour ia probably the best possible article to throw over a fire caused by the spilling and igniting of kerosine. It ought to be known, because flour is always within convenient reach. We hope everybody will prepare for the census taker, and be ready to give all the information. It is important that every man, woman and child be counted, and this can be done mnch more satisfactorily if every bead of a family is prepared before hand and willing to give information. The contract for the western extension of the 8t. L. A Sao Francisco road, we are in formed, has been let to Mr. Jno. McCarthy, one of the matt reliable, honorable and effi cient railroad builders in the United States, and so regarded in higher railroad circles. Wichita Beacon. The man has not lived in vain who plants a good tree in lha right place; and the senti ment which prompted the tree-planting or ganizations st the West snd caused a day to be set spart for a united, voluntary public effort in this behalf, is akin to that which set on foot our charitable and missionary societies. AjfOXO the amendments to the agricul tural appropriation bill adopted by the House, was the following: Appropriating $20,000 for sinking two artesian wells on the plains esst of the Rocky Mountains; appropriating $50,000 to enable the Commis sioners of Agriculture to continue investi gation upon the subject of forestry. The Champion's Washington correspond ent says the bill to create the new "northern" land district hat pasted the Senate, and only awaits the President's signature to be come a law. The bill for the new South western district patted the House some time since and awaits the action of the Senate. It will probably become a law at the present Annexe from Los Luaos state that four more ranchmen hare beta killed near Tolerost by Indians, and estiastrs that in Sarocco county and Mogullsa Mountains some fifty Mexican herders and five Americans, inrlnding two women, here been mastsertd. The number killed tinea the first of the moajth is said to be 79. Several setllsmsani will no doubt have to be abas, doaei.
