The lollowing letter in anawer to ILquirien concerning ebeep mi; be of interest to oar readera. The writer i the well known beep man of Inic citj: Dudce Citt. Kas., Julj 19-b, 1S82. M. II. Ijvikostom, Esq, Kaiwaa City. Dtilt&B: Your faeor ISth intt, came (3 hand and content carefull; noted, and in rejil wijl r that I hare bad a few year experience in tbeabeep buBinei iireeuing, chipping and handling wool. I consider the Merino grades beat adapt ed for wool and handling in the wect. Though thej do not male n large aheep, they are mcxt profitable coneldering wool and mutton. There in in thia market for aale reveral lots of fire to Keren ar.d ahearen, that can be bought from $2.60 to $3.60 per head, (high grade Merino ewca.) Taking everything, in connection with the butinexn, into consideration, I am t iffied that Kamaa ia aa good a elate at there it in the Union, for the above buiineai. Sheep do well on the natural graae, but caa be rained more profitably from this point Eaet, from the following facts: Land is reafonabljr cheap and one can raise eugar cane, which proJoces eight to twelve tons to the acre, which can't be beat en for leed; in addition to that there ia a yield of from fifteen to thirty buahela of aeed to Jbc acre, which anylize equal to corn for fattecing. Millet aim can be raised with out fail, and frd to a profit. After harvest the stubble and volunteer growth can be had cheap, from neighbors, and after corn is gathered the stalk fields can be bought for ten cents per acre, and thosgh carefully gathered, the fields will contain at least one bnihel to the acre. Lambs taken from the ewes in Auguat, about (he latter part, and put on green feed will continue to crow right along. And with all the advantage of leed will make, at maturity, a carcass one fourth to a third larger than can povibly be attained on the range, in addition to weight, they will produce two pounds of wool more. Hay can be put up for $1.50 per ton during the summer, when shtep men are generally at leiaure. The feed and care of 1,000 sheep djring the year need not cot over 50 cents ir head after the first year, that being the most erpensive time on account of bnildicg cor rals and sheddin;. The cot of 1.000 ewes cire Ac., would be about as follows: LMi ewri at t)J.0 per head $J,r0 curattiat)) " w leeit, ear, tllppics Ac., CO cenu trtica4.. coo .ouil sent rorral A ahriMtns....... 300 bbeartEg ami lanintc: lis Tvtal l,35 coNTxaar.

I venture to Bay that J of the railroad lands are vacant. In reference to diseases of sheep, we have none in the west, excepting ecab, and at the present time, with the knowledge that we have of thia disease, there is absolutely no excuse for losing wool or sheep, from the disease, if it is taken in time. Wbn shrep commence to scratch and the weather i favorable they should be dipped at or.ee, and if they can't be dipped, they should be watched carefully in the morning and those that scratch should be takes from the Sock, and band drewed, by pouring liquid tobacco over thn and keeping them in a warm place until they dry.

I had been sick and miserable so long, and had caused my husband so much trouble and expense, no one teemed to know what ailed me. that I was completely dishearted and discouraged. In this frame of mind I got a bottle of Hop Hitters and need them unknown to my family. I soon began to improve and gaineif so fast that my husband and family thought it strange and unnatural, but when I told them what had helped me, they said.
