Young cattle ell at few dollars Um ltn beef cattle. The abundance of monej reeling investment is the jirime raii'e c Jrgh prices; but unlet lef cattle advance wilbia (be nut year or two, lho inxiple wbo invested this year will find their prcfi's tinall. On this ques tion of iifgh prlcw tl.e Kansas City Com mercial Indicttor sajs: Tbe statements Kivcn in the Indicator from time to time, Of (he hili prices vtbicli are being paid for cattle upon the ranges of tbe Kent, bare cauVed considerable comment, and the ques tion ia frequently a'ltd, hj euch tbould be the ca'e? It is an etlallulied fitt that large amounts of monej bate hi hi made within ths lint eight years by owners of Urge ranches in the New West, and that the profit have been large lias caii'ed the in vestment of vast eutaa of raonrr, not onlv from the eastern portion of tbe United States but alo from Europe. The demand for ram;i' cattle ba, within the pait year, ei ceedeil the supply, and this has been one cause of tbe advance in prices I!ut whtn we come to consider the imme diate ciue of the advanced juices of cittle on the ranges of the New Weft, it is found that tbe last winter wis tbe severe?! known for years, and if ever the losses of cattle, unprotected and allowed to shift for them eolves, were to lie large then should the lure have been heavy during the winter of 1SS0.S1. But such hat cot been the caso. The losses iiave been small,and this inform ation has been conveyed to the capitalists ol ihcKast by owners of railroads, whose rail roads traverse the cattle growing regions of the Weft, and this has stimulatfd a demand from that quarter. Ilanchmcn fetl more en couraged this year than evir before, and tbcf have good reason to feel so. .1 SEW MEXICO SHEEP J!ASC1I. Some idea of tbe extent of eheep raising in New Mexico may be inferred by the fol lowing from the Ked Itiver Chronicle: G. W. Stoneroad, of Cabra Springs, baa tbe largest and Left herd of fine Merino theep in New Mexico. The iloct, including rams and "ethers, runs up to 21,000. This year's Iambi will increase tbe herd by 0,500. Tbe spring dtp of wool aggregates teirly 120, 000 pounds, or n fraction over five pounds per bead. This, at tbe present low price of wool evm, will fetch not less than 20,000; about a dollar tier bead. We will not miss tbe mark very far by asserting that this may be considered the income of the ranch for this retr, a tbe sale of fice rams and mut ton sheep Hill realize enough to defray the year's expenses of the estate. The Cabra Springs ranch is the model sheep farm of New Mexico. Everything is carried on sys tematically, and gives satisfactory proof that theory and practice go hand in band. Mr. toneioid is an old hand in the sheep hui- ne's, having been engaged formerly iu stock raiing in California. A new scores of water tupply in the vast decrt mountain ranges of California and Arizona is worthy of note. No rain falls over a wide area. It is covered with cactus plants of every variety, and they are juicy. Millions of land tortoises feed on thee plants, and the Indians make soup of them. Inside of each is an anatomical tank that holds about a pint of ater. Many are cut open to get at tbis tank. The water is palat able. Thus meat and drink are supplied, and the dry cactus mjke excellent fuel. The liw rf compensation is here forcibly illuitrated. Second Avenue, between Fringer's Drag Storo and Globo office.
