Stockmen Taking Advantage of the Liberal Provisions of the Reservoir Law. Business at the Local Land Office Largely Augmented by These Filings. THE RESERVOIR LAW. Business at the local land office is lively these days with (lie applications of settlers in the western part of the state for laml tilings under the reser voir law, which went into effect not Ions ago. The law was passed with the idea of encouraging the building of dams and reservoirs for the storage of water in some states, to the im provement. of the general conditions in states where water is' scarce, by storing up the rainfall that wastes away through mountain streams and ravines. Under the provisions of the law anyone can reserve and have the use of l(iO acres of land in one section for ififty years, providing he builds a reservoir, that, will hold and contain 1,500,000 gallons of water, such reser voir must lie on the same section with the laud reserved. The provisions of the law are being extensively taken advantage of by set tlers in the western part of the state, although it is improbable that many reservoirs will be constructed, for the reason that the natural conditions are such that to construct reservoirs in many of the places where land has been filed upon would be impossible. But filing upon the land keeps other settlers off, and stockmen, by the pay ment. of the filing fees, may have the use of the land until the entries are canceled, and in the meantime they secure the use of the land and keep settlers from encroaching upon their ranges by the payment of a tiling fee. Another provision of the law is as follows: "Lands so. reserved shall not be fenced but shall be kept open to the free use of any person desiring to water animals of any kind. If laiuls so. reserved are at any time fenced or otherwise enclosed, or if they arc not kept open to the free use of any person as aforesaid desiring to water animals of any kind, or if the reservoir applicant, attempts to use them for any other purpose, or if the reservation is not obtained for the bona tide and exclusive purpose of con structing and maintaining a reservoir thereon according to law. the declara tory statement, upon any such matter being made duly appear, will be can celled and all rights thereunder be de clared at an end." MORE RESERVOIR PILINGS. (From Tuesday's Daily.) About seven hundred and fifty reser voir filings have been made at the local land office, up to the present time. There is another delegation of settlers in the city today from the west of the river, and all of them are entering 011 land. An additional hundred tilings were docketed at tilie land office this morning and the total number for the day will probably be 125. These fig ures show to some extent the advan tage that is being taken of the reser voir law. The average number of filings made ly individuals is three or four, that is to say. each individual files on an aver age of four quarter sections of laud. One man near Dickinson has filed on sixteen separate quarter sections, and two applicants at the land office yes terday filed on ten quarter sections of land eadh, and then filed on ten more jointly. As the average number of acres taken up by each filing is 100. the extent to which the government domain is being taken up under this law is realized. The law is a good thing for the land office lawyers as they receive fees ranging from .$2 to $4 tor making the papers in each filing. The land'office fees are .$2 in each case. The reservoir law provides for a declaratory statement by the applicant of the land desired to be reserved, the business of the applicant, the location of the reservoir, the proximity of springs and sources of water supply, and the amount of land owned by the applicant in the vicinity of tllie reser voir. The amount of land reserved in any one section depends upon the capacity of the reservoir to be con structed. The officials of the local land office must receive the declaratory state ments as provided by law, but it is also provided that the commissioner of the general land office may reject any ap plication in which he is led to believe that the applicant does not in good faith intend to build reservoirs. The applicant for reservoir sites must complete the reservoir within two years from the time of filing the declaratory statement, and then have the site surveyed and file a plat in the land office, after which the land is re served from sale so long as the reser voir is maintained and water kept therein.

London, Jan. xl.—The East Surrey regiment and the West Yorkshires mistook each other for Boers and fought each other desperately in the dark in a hand to hand conflict marked with terrible slaughter. The Boers then attacked and routed both regi ments. capturing Major Ilobbs ano a number of other prisoners. This news has been withheld for several days by the South African press censor. General Methuen has been recalled by the English government. His mind is said to be unsound as the re sult of the strain he has undergone. General Buller's health is said to le precarious. Senator Allen of Nebraska has intro duced a bill to pension all surviving soldiers of the civil war at $10 a month. While the intentions of the Nebraska senator may be questioned as to the sincerity of his motives toward the old soldiers, who are more deserving of the remembrance of the greatest government on earth than the men who made it possible for the govern ment to survive? Robert Schilling of Milwaukee, the well known pop orator, who was in Bismarck and spoke in the campaign several years ago,, has retired dis gusted from poLitics. He is so com pletely disgusted that he says he will not return to political work until the fools all die off. This means that he will never return for when the fools are all dead he will not be here. ANGORA GOATS. nti Expert Sny* Aliont Their Culture. Ooc of tlio most profitable branches of animal industry ill the l.'nitcd States is the raining of Angora goats, as they are thriving especially on laud which has hitherto been considered as utterly worthless. There are very few states in the Union which have not millions of acres of brushy mountain land ol" next to 110 value located from an altitude of 400 or 500 feet above the sea level to 0,000 or 8,000 feet, depending much upon the latitude of the land, which would offer a perfect paradise to the Angora goat and would if stocked with these ani mals be a source of ever increasing profits to their owners, and the amount of money which would be required would be so low compared to the prof its which could be realized by an intel ligent caretaker that the cost usually should not be in the way of anybody who wishes to engage in the enterprise?. The fanner whose farm partly con sists of scrub mountain land would have the advantage, and to him Angora goats would be entirely supernumera ry, offering the greatest chances for large profits. All he lias to do is to fence a piece of land into two pastures, turn his goats 011 them alternately, sometimes in one. sometimes in the other: drive them out at daybreak and bring tlieni back at sundown. If possi ble. he should connect the pastures with his barn, where he should con struct an open shed or hovel. Any thing that will turn rain would be suf ficient. Upon arrival at their roosting place feed them some little grain, and they soon will not have to be driven in any more, but be there in time for the sweet morsel. The owner of Angora goats should procure at kidding time two or three suckling pups of some strong breed of dog. but if possible with a strain of collie in them, and raise these pups 011 a kidless doe (a common one would be preferable) until they are large enough to follow the goats. Such dogs will become so attached to the breed of their foster mother that they will light for tlieni until death anything in the shape of four or two legged curs that would venture near their charge and be the most reliable of shepherds. Two or "three dogs thus brought up with goats could be trusted with the man agement of a flock of sheep of as much as two or three thousand and with very little extra instruction would herd them as well and with as much sense of duty as any hired shepherd and be by far cheaper. I am often asked questions in regard to the cost of goats and whether cotnmou goats or Angoras would pay best for a start. Common goats are not high in price, but the item of freight is considerable. This cost may be ascertained from the nearest railroad agent. Grade An goras, according to their quality, would cost from $1.50 up to $5 or more. It is only natural that for goats yielding very heavy fleeces very large prices should have to be paid, and of course also to the above prices the freight would have to be added. When asking advice as to the class of goats with which a party new in the business should begin with, much, if not everything, would depend on the following points: First.—How near he is to a local mar ket for the surplus of his goats. Second.—How many acres of land he has at his disposal and how many goats he could keep thereon, varying all the way from five or six acres for each goat up to five or six goats on each acre, and cannot be determined unless by personal inspection. Third.—Whether he has to depend at the very beginning upon a cash in come from them, when the highest grade of goats is doubtless the best, or whether he can wait for a few years before he realizes. The latter of course is in the advantage and if he has plenty of means to start with probably could make the most money by grading up the ordinary common goats or at least the very lowest grade of Angoras, for these latter breed faster, and if he has enough money to put up a canning establishment he could reap large profits from the'en terprise. Still, the lower the grade of the Angoras the lower the quality of their meat and the harder is it to dis pose of it, both at retail and wholesale. Fourth.—How much capital he has to invest and whether such can be in vested, no matter in which state of the Union, or whether he is compelled to do so in an already fixed locality. This is usually a principal and very vital question. If a party has only a few hundred dollars and absolutely de pends upon the goat industry for a living from the very beginning and has no land of his own, I will not say ex eetly that be better stay entirely out of the goat business, but I can promise him pretty tough scratching for the .first two or three years, and he must have a remarkably good constitution and firm energy to stand the racket. Fifth.—Last, but not least, must de pend upon the health, age, character and former habits of the party, for a man who has been living on a salary of say $1,200 to $2,500 a year and per haps has quite a family to support and is himself on the downward grade of life must not expect to be able to live In the same way as before with a capi tal investment of $500 or $1,000 or.even $3,000. for he certainly will not be able to do it. But the Angora goat industry must today be considered a very safe and at tbe same time very profitable invest ment. provided the personality of the new beginner is suited to it and If his means are adequate to his own person al demands of those of bis family. The land is steadily Increasing in value, and his stock Is constantly improving. Thus his income as well as his proper ty will steadily increase. Let us suppose, however, a party has $3,000 and can get a five years' lease on 0,000 acres at 3 cents per acre, with privilege to buy at $1.50, one-third cash, the rest in four or live equal year ly payments. lie would have to buy two good double tents and some house hold furniture at a cost of about $150 three mares, one wagon and- harness, $350 two cows, chickens and pigs, $50 plowshares, etc., $20 rent of laud, flSO provisions. $100 450 goats. $4 each, $1,800 four bucks, $200. There would be left for him still $100 cash on hand for emergency expenses. At the ordinary rate of increase ami allowing 11 fair price for mohair and culling out gradually the worst animals his income would be for the lirst year about $170 after deducting the rent, for the second about $000, for the third $900 after deducting both the rent and about $250 for new bucks. The fourth year would leave about $1,500 after deduct ing rent and .S250 for new bucks the fifth year, $2,800 the sixth year, $4,500. From the seventh year the income would be over $5,000 and gradually in crease up to $(5,000 or $7,000. according to the care given to the management of the goats. Of course the deductions made of the total income include only the rent and the most necessary addi tions to the number of bucks, and what ever a party will have to deduct for renewals, expenses and help he can best judge for himself. Vet lie should after the second year have enough for a comfortable living, and out of the revenue of the fourth year enough should be laid by for the fifth to make a first payment 011 the land without being compelled to be stinted in tlio fifth year's expenses, and from the sixth and seventh year the income should enable the breeder to venture $1,000 or $2,000 each year for the es tablishment of a thoroughbred llock of his own, in which actually the largest profits would be. These figures are rather conservative, yet they show that there is money in Angora goats—plenty of money—if only they are handled in the right way. G. A. IIOEllLE. Ridgewood, N. 3 Stnmliin In Horne*.

In fact. 1 am a non believer iu the greater part of these fashionable broad chested horses, but low, being able to go their 12 miles in one hour and live after it, especially weighing 1,200 to 1,400 pounds sec ond, the horse must have spirit third, he must have lots of ambition fourth, his bones must be smaller, but more solid than a draft horse, so as to give great strength with light weight fifth, he should be inclined to be tall for the weight sixth, lie should be muscled in hard bands and appear knotted when the horse is in motion seventh, the barrel should be round and clean, so as not to show gutty at all, and the two ends of the horse should look a little large and deep for the body eighth, the horse that will have these qualities pre-eminent will always have a high rump, the root of the tail show ing very prominent from the quarter down. Some things I say will be ques tioned, but come along and discuss horse breeding.—Farmers' Tribune. Wrong Kind of Shetland Pony. Here is a portrait of a prize winning Shetland, which, while a very smart pony, is an excellent example of what a Shetland should not be. This pony is a high acting, spirited fellow, with docked tail aud pulled inane, made to resemble a miniature cob, says The National Stockman. It is all right for a man to make his pony into such an animal if he can and wants to, but it is not and should not be classed as a SPIRITED SHETLAND PONY. true type of Shetland pony. The Shet land is bred in this country for the use of children. lie is not bred to act higii or to gallop or to trot at a good rate of speed. He must be gentle, per fectly so, permitting all sorts of liber ties from the youngsters who are to use him. They must have in him a perfectly safe, trusty companion and playmate. We mention this because we have seen these "fancy" ponies win from a lot of shaggy inaned, honest, sober, low gaited fellows who were typical representatives of the breed. Competent judges will consider such things in making the awards. Wintering Stock. The most important point in winter ing farm stock is to see to it that at the beginning the stock is thrifty and not so old that it will be more apt to depreciate than to increase In price by keeping through. Stock young enough not to have made its full growth pays best to keep of all. It l» far better to kill or sell in fall the stock that has passed its best than to try to winter it. If It is kept over, the food it eats will be wasted. If the cost of food fed to stock that gain nothing from it was spent in better feeding of young and thrifty stock, it would make stock keeping in winter always profitable Instead of being, as now, tbe cause of greater loss than gain.—American Cultivator.
