for reasons ub ious to all, not to hold a fair

the chances of a failure, a postponement was

For the past two weeks wc bae been mak
ing dilligcnt Inqury as to the condition of the
corn crop in Sedgwick and adjoining counties.
From letters, exchanges and talks with men
Irom various sections wc have come to the
conclusion tliat the counties of Sedgwick.
Sumner, Butler, Cowley, Howard and Harvey
will all have considerable corn, enough for the
horses and hog, and enough for corn meal
and seed. We figure it that about one-half ol
tha fields are a total failure, anothcr'lourth
will tuni oft a quarter ol a crop, while one
cropincery four will yield from a half to
throe-fourths ol a crop, making an average of
Irom a fotinli to a third ol a crop. Much fod
der has been saved, a larger amount than
many arc an arc of, while there has never
been such quantities ot liar put up any sea
son before. There are townships in this
county that will have over one thousand tons
each of good merchantable hay. From our
mill men and others who have been over the
ground we arc satisfied that the counties
above named will have something over two
hundred thousand bushels of wheat for sale,
a large proportion of which will Cud Its way
to this market. As the cloud that was can
over us by the grasshoppers begins to lift
there is a great deal if cheering light break
ing through. True, there arc those, and their
numbers are not inconsiderable, that will
need aid. but tl.cy are people who have been
in the county only a short time and who
brought nothing with them. To these a help
ing hand must be extended. Not only a
helping hand, but cheering or smpathclio
words as the case uuy be. The legislature in
appropriating relief w ill go as far as in their
widom in urgent necessity will warrant.
Hut it seems to us that the best and most
practical relief is that that comes from gener
ous hearts and neighborly hands. If there is
as much food and grain in the country as we
estimate above, no family should sutler, no
little ones cry for bread. 'Ihcy must cot.
Wither the man or woman and blasted be all
their crops lor years to come who would re
fuse to divide with hungry children. As to
clothing, we expect and know that the legis
lature and county commissioners can relieve
all wants in that direction.
Kiiitoh Eagi.k : Hy jour permission I will
furnish you a statement of our stock trado
here up to dale. We hac shipped 1,012 cars;
number r head, 20,240. Same time last year
we shipped CIO cars; total number of cattle.
12,NW; showing an increase or 472 cars and
an increase of number of cattle shipped to
date of 7.440. And wc had located on our
grazing grounds hei e last year, September 1st,
about '.13.000 against about 4'O00 this car,
showing a falling off ol ."1,000 here, while at
Kllsworth last year they had about 80.000
against J,000 this year, showing a falling off
in number of cattle on hand at this date in
thsse two markets of one hundred and twenty-six
thousand which the above figures will
show and I jet fall to see why wc won't have
a fair market here notwithstanding the scare
of the drouth and the grasshoppers.
Your.s, John Clink.
Wichita, September 1st, 1871.
The cheering news comes to us from every
portion of the valley that farmers arc indus
triously sowing their fall wheat. In our own
county a large acreage lias already been sown
and before anotl-er week hundreds or aires
more will have been seeded down. That's
right. Sow your wheat and that immediately,
cvcnil you sow it in dust. It will then be
ready lor the first rain that does come. All
experience In this state proves that the latter
part of August or the first week or two in
September, at the latest, is the time to sow-
wheat. Drill it in well and deep or cover
with a plow II possible, but at any rate put it
in immediately.

Whiteomb took his departure ou Wednesday
last for Wicliita. Kansas, where he has located
permanently, and proposes opening an ab

achieved a fine reputation as an expert and
thorough workman in Ids line of business
Wc bespeak for him a prosperous life in his

Mr. Whiteomb has taken up his residence

Col.. MtmitocK : I present vott with a spec
imen of George Dadi'sman's corn. He has
fifty-live acres which will go thirty bushels to
the acre. He has also twenty-live hogs which
he is fattening and thirty tons of hay to sell.
lie came to edgniek county two years ago
ami located five miles north ol here in the
vallej-. He says he made $"00 clear farming
last jear. Mr. Dadisman was from one of the
finest sections of Illinois, but thinks it's noth

Milburn Alexander, while out hunting one
day week before Iat, lost his bird dog, said
dog was a speckled dog, about one year old;
when last seen was about seven miles north
east ot this place. Milburn wants his dog
very much and will give a liberal reward to
anyone that will return him to the count
clerk's office. The purp his u collar 011 an-l
attached to said collar is a lag with the letters
'T. P." stamped thereon.
Mxty-five cars more cattle shipped in Au
gust than in the c rrespotiding month for 1S73,
so we learn from the agent's report. A large
number estimated at forty thousand head re
miin on the range yet, many of which arc
still in first hand. The market is very flat
owing to the failure of crops and grass in the
states east of us. Nothing but fat beeves are
in demand aud the city markets arc overrun
witli these.
The young men's bible class ol tho Picsby

next Sabbath afternoon at half past 2 o'cloik,

invitation is extended to all young men not
otherwise engaged to meet at Kaglo Hall at
the above mentioned hour.

L'MTOIt Kaci.g: Permit me to say through
the columns ot the LaOI.e that I do not de
sire to be a candidate for any political posi
tion. I prefer supportingmy friends to being
a candidate myself. I believe it wrong, how
ever, to seek or decline any honorable post
tion when tendered by our fellow citizens.
Your obedient servant,

A small colored boy about seven or eight
years old by the name of Koblnson, living in
the north side of town, on Friday lat while
carelessly handling a revolver, shot himself in
one of his eyes the ball coming out at the tem

dren. The prcccci'inss of the conventions, politi
cal and educational matters, have taken up
almost our entire space this w eek. Icav ing but

Judging that the fanner would prove more
interesting than the latter, we governed our
selves accordingly.

Go East By way of St. Louis. In these
days of competition the wise traveler selects
his route before leaving borne. Iu almost ev

complishment of that purpose the Missouri
Pacific through line from the west to the east,
via Kansas City and St. Louis, offers induce
ments unsurpassed by any other line in the
country. Everything connected with the Mis
souri Pacific railroad is first class, and the
adoption of the Miller platform and Westing-
hou-e air brake, together with its Pullman
sleepers, and reclining chair coaches, render a
trip over the line perfectly safe and pleasant.
