Anderson and Ward on the 9th and 10th of November at Kan sas City. m2M An exchange says there is disposition on the put of many breeders ahd stock-growers to confun the two terms, "grade" and "cress." These two, however, should by no means be indiscriminately adapted in many various classes of cattle. If under stood properly a "crass" is indeed in one sense a thoroughbred, for sire and dam in this case are both thoroughbreds. For in stance, the calf of a thoroughbred Shorthorn by a thoroughbred Hereford, is a. "crossbred' animal, while the calf of a native cow with a taceccghbred sire, is strictly a grade ap proaching according to the number of cross umL it taking: three to make a thoroughbred entitled to be registered in the herd-book. Bat yet a calf by thoroughbred sire with a native cowcould be called crow between a thoroughbred and a native. THE WEATHER IS SEP1 EMBER. John Huettenmueller, in charge ol the Dodge City Signs! Station, has furnished us with a meteorological summary for the month of September. The report shows larger amount of rainfall during any month of September since the station wse establish ed. The rainfall was 3.13 inches, mostly in the first week of the month, distributed as follows: 6th, 2 24 inches; 7th, 0.61 inches ; lOtb, .05 inches; 29th, 0.23 inches, making a total of 3.13 inches, and compared with the September rainfall of previous years as fol lows: 18751.32 inches; 18762.13 inch es; 18770.50 inches; 1878-0.76 inches; 1879-0.80 inches; 18800.32 inches. The middle and latter part of tbe month was un usually windy. The total movement of the wind was 10,137 miles; prevailing direction south, and the highest Telocity on the 10th, from the north, reaching 50 miles an hour. The highest temperature was 99.3 oa the 3d; lowest temperature 38.9 on tbe 16th. Compared with previous years the average temperature was medium. The mean ha midity wis 56 9. The greatest daily range of temperature wis 45.0 on 17th. A thun der storm is reported on the 6th. A light frost on the 16th. Number of days on which rsin fell, 6; rain on two days too small to measure. Number of clear days 18, number of fair days 8. September 26h, 1881, was observed a dsy of fasting by the loyal people of tbe country. It was the first year of wsr, and the military misfortune which began with Big Bethel and were followed by Bull Bun and other defeats, had done much toward depressing the spirits to tbe people. Accordingly Lin coln made Sept. 26:h, 1861,. a day of na tional humiliation, fsstening, and prayer, and it was so observed in all parts of the country which had been kept out of con trol of the rebels. Sept. 26th, 1881, was the day of President Garfield's funeral. Hon. Enoch R. Madge, leading commis sion merchant in cotton and woolen goods, head of the firm of E. R. Madge, Sawyer A Co, ol Bolton. New York and Philadelphia, died of apoplexy at his summer residence at Swampscott, Oct. 1st. From 1835 to 1839 be was manager of the Astor Hoose, New York, and in 1840 opened the St. Charles Hotel at New Orleans, amassing a fortune in the latter city. Henry S. Madge, a son of tbe deceased merchant, residis in Hodgeman county, Kas. CspC Brady, and Lieut. Nichols, of the 23d infantry, are at Ft. Leavenworth. Tbe officers take part in tbe shooting tourna ment on the 4th but, CoL Brady is known to be a fine shot, and under hie directions the contestants will be closely judged. Lieut. Will. Nichols is one of the clostest shots in the service. A Times reporter has seen him hit a bull's eye, making a score that no one suspected, and when the wind was blow a gale, on the old target-ground. Leaven worth Times. ' Dodge City begins to boom more than srer. Tbe great stock interests surrounding ber very naturally keep things lively, but the new impetus b caused by the fact that the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe road will make a number of improvements there very soon, which has had the effects advanc ing real estate rapidly and also in increasing the number of projected buildings. Lear. Times. Apprehensions are felt by stockmen in Kansas sad the TarritorT of main firsa. Some are at work plowing fire-guards and otherwise enieaTorag to protect their ranges Toe growth of Yemtation is rank and s spark would destroy thousands ol acres of mater range, and do an Incalculable amount cf damage. Heavy enow storms hare occurred in the Rock mounty range west of Denver. The general condition of trade throughout tbe country is excellent. A heavy fell and winter business is anticipated. Winter-wheat that has been sown through out the state is coming np, and the general report is to the effect that it is doing well. Tbe potato crop of Iowa is almost a total failure, and there it likely to be a famine so far as that important vegetable Is concerned. About 25 per cent of the horses in 8t Louis are affected with a disease something like pneumonia. Hales are np to this time ex empt. The flunkeys who are always hinging on to the cost tails of men who are in power, are eery numerous around President Arthur just now. The whiskey and tobacco dealers of Cin cinnati paid $12,000,000 to the internal rev enue department last year, and the brewers of Milwaukee paid $700,000. A Kansas crank is now calling loudly for enactment of a state law to prohibt the ess of tobacco in this commonwealth. Why not include chewing gum, sauerkraut and sorghum molssses? A maty old bachelor in Great Bend not liking the way bis landlady's daughter bad of using his hair oil, filled the bottle with liquid glue the day before the ball to which the girl was invited. She stayed at home. How cruel. "There is my hand," exclaimed a Lined lover in a moment of courage and candor, "and my heart is in it." She lanced st the empty palm extended toward her, sad wickedly replied, "Just a I supposed you hare no heart." It is asserted a a fact that tbe com crop of fort j and sixty scree on hundreds of farms in Kansas and Nebraska will sell far more this year than the market price of the entire 160 acre homssteed. Under this condition ol affairs the farmers of those states ought to be able to worry through until next mer. The Fort Worth Live Stock Journal, branch office at San Antonio, says: Every thing indicates higher prices for the spring delivery. Holders and breeders are deter' mined to keep their new stock, unless thcr on get better prices. Several parties who hare heretofore famished a large number of cattle for tbe drive will bold their young cattle for the growth or the beef market. Messrs. Bright and son, of tha Saline Tal ler, think cattle should not be allowed to eat second growth of sorghum, after a frost, as it is generally fetal, being nearly aa quick sestrychniae. Last Sunday, by accident, a lot of cattle got on to the Messrs. Brighfs sorghum about fifteen minutes. Four were immediately taken sick, and one, a valuable animal, died in less tbaa thirty sniaotee. Tha others were sarsd by a drenching com posed of one pint of salt in a quart of water, with half the does repeat in fifteen minutes Wa-Keeny World. A sensation was created in Washington when a Mr. Bayley, employed la the army medical museum, reported to the police that Tuesday night he had overheard a coaiatsa tka by two asea, who stood oa the sidewalk ia front of hie room, to tbe eaeet that a plot had bee arranged to atassinata Ti sanilmil Arthur within a month.
