Live Stock Record: It is concédai on all sides that this wonderful plant is fast superseding all other farm crops in Colorado. Never was there a plant that sprang into popularity so rapidly as has alfalfa. If all the seal that came Into the state, and all that was raisal here, was planted—and we have reason to know it was—then there were 15,000 acres seedal. I 11 looking up the figures we find that 300,000 pounds of seal was put into the earth in 1884, and have reason to believe that more than that much will l>e planted in this 1885. The opinion of seed dealers whom we have conversai with, is that the price will be alxiut 15 cents per pound in the coming spring. The 15,000 acres that were plantai last year should produce from two and a half to five tons to the acre this year. It will not be out of reason to expect that the value of the crop this year will exceed that of wheat by four fold. It will furnish^the pivot of Colorado's future prosperity.

These lightships are also to be connected to gether and to the shore at both ends, by an electric cable, and will thus be able to send messages to any part of the world. The British government has contracted for the building of a military railway, from Suakim on the Red Sea to Berber on the Nile in the Soudan. The distance is about 130 miles.
