AGRICULTURAL
MEETING OP THE STATE AGRI
CULTURAL SOCIETY.
FARMER'S CLUB.
We take the following from the pro
ceedings of the last meeting of the
Farmer's Club of the State Agricutural
Society :
The meeting was culled to order by
Hon. L. D. Bailey, President, and F.
G. Adams acted as Secretary.
The President briefly reviewed the
proceedings of the meetings that had
been held during the winter, and con
gratulated the Society upon the sub
stantial and gratifying results achieved.
At the commencement of the meetings
the Society had but a single Life Mcm
per. Now it numbers upon its roll
upwards of one hundred life members,
embracing a large share of the intelli
gent, enterprising and public-spirited
men of the State. It has received an
appropriation of 1,000 from the State
Treasury in furtherance of its objects,
and had elicited facts which he deemed
of the greatest importance in developing
the resources and promoting the pros
perity of the State. They have shown
conclusively in his judgment that Kansas
to-day presents greater attractions to
men of small means but willing hands,
who are seeking for homes in the Far
West, where they can rear and educate
their children to a life of honest indus
try and independence, than any other
State in the Union. It had been shown
that the soil and climate of Kansas was
admirably adapted to the growth of the
great staples, hemp, tobacco, flax and
wine, while cotton, if not permanently
profitable, can be raised with immense
profit so long as the present high price
shall continue, lie thought that here,
where millions of acres of land were for
sale, at from one to three dollars per
acre, much of it more or less improved,
when it is shown that one farmer ( Mr.
Pewett, of Anderson county) has actu
ally raised $400 woith of tobacco on
one acre of such land, without manure
of any kind, during the past year.
While another (Mr. Lattin, of Leaven
worth )had, on less than an acre, raised
$400 worth of grapes. And still an
other, (Mr. Farnsworth, of Topeka)
has realized a net profit of 33 per acre
upon twenty acres of hemp. They had
good reasons to be satisfied with the
results, and trusted he might be privi
liged to attend another series of meet
ings next winter, with results equally
satisfactory. But there was one branch
of the farmer's business more important
than all else at the present time, and
that was stock raising in its various
branches, and if the attention bestowed
upon other topics should tend in any
considerable degree to withdraw the at
tention of farmers from the paramount
importance of their flocks and herds, he
feared they would not have done the
State much service. He proposed,
therefore, that the evening be devoted
chiefly to the consideration of stock
husbandry, regretting that Gen. Colla
morc, who had been invited by a vote of
the Society to address them on the sub
ject of wool growing, had been unable
by reason of sickness in his family to be
present. By way of opening the dis
cussion, the President stated that he had
had a conversation with lion. W. Spriggs
State Treasurer, who was largely en
gaged in farming in Anderson Co., and
Mr. Spriggs had furnished an estimate
of the profit from raising 100 steer
calves, till they were fat for market, as
follows ; viz :
100 steer calves, bought in the fall
before feeding time, at 3
per head, $300.00
Cost of keeping 1st vear,
$2 per head, $200.00
Cost of keeping 2nd vear,
2.50 per head, 250.00
Cost of keeping 3d year.
2.50 per head, ' 250.00
Whole cost in fall, after 3
years old, ' 1000.00
Worth 25 per head 2,500.00
Profits, 1.500.00
The President said he presented the
estimate for discussion and criticism, at
the hands of the practical farmers pres
ent. The President then presented an esti -mate
on what the progeny of one cow
would amount to in ten years, supposing
her to have a heifer calf each year, and
that each heifer would commence bear
ing at two years of age. The number
amounted to 144 at the end of 10 years
and at the end of twenty years to 20,
736 twenty thousand seven hun
dred and thirty-six). He thought
no person need hesitate about going
into the stock business for want of cap
ital. Start with one cow, and get more
as fast as possible. He stated on the
authority of Treasurer Sprigg, that Mr.
John Joucher, of Mt. Gilead, Ander
son county, came into Kansas in the
spring of 1857, and brought one cow,
and had last fall on his farm thirty-six
head of cattle from that one cow.

WESTERN KANSAS
Volume II.
The success which has attended us daring
the past year, a? shown by our increased cir
culation, in our securing so extensive an adver
tising patronage, anil by the high enccraiutai
which haT teen received from tho press and
people of the State for our bold and indepen
dent course, ia defence of the Right, have
satisfied the Publishers that the Umojc is a
fixed and permanent institution of Western
Kansas.
While thaukiug our many patrons for the
bountiful support which they have giren U9j c
and for the encouragement received bv the
many cotiiplimests bestowed, we would ask a
continuance of their help in making the Umos
a reflex of the prosperity and advancement
which is sure to attend the course of Western
Kansas.
Strictly identified with the interests of
Western Knnsas, and well knowing its vast
resource?, which are only awaiting the magic
hand of the capitalist and laborer to he fully
developed, and added to the growing wealth
of the country, we shall spare no pains or
energy to bring before the masses of the East
the great advantage of our country as a place
of settlement for the home-seeking immigrant
Everything tending to induce capital to flow
hitherward for tho development of our exten
sive Coal Fields and rich Salt Springs will
receive that particular attention which it
deserves.
In politics, wc shall pursue that course
which we believe justified by principles of
Right and Justice, and which tends to Human
Progress, Universal Liberty, and the free
pursuit of Happiness by all mankind.
The importance of having a full and com
plete local department we would not under
estimnte, and we are again impelled to ask our
friends to aid us in this matter give us
information of any thing transpiring in your
neighborhood. We desire the Umos to be a
perfect history of this locality.
As we are unable to reduce tho price of our
piper, and live by it, at the same time making
it a useful institution, we have concluded, in
view of the mighty interests involved in tho
present struggle, to so arrange our terms a? to
.jive our friends an opportunity of extending
ur circulation in their localities:
One year 52 numbers -"Six
months 2C numbers -Ten
copies, one y.ar, -

Ve would appexl to our friends to aid m in
putting the Umos in the bauds of every mn
