Alva Rose Creamery Butter may be found at the following stores: D. M, Wright 4 Son, Smith i Currit, Whitt A Kirk, J. M. Burrow George Finley. writing in western trail cf the great ranch, describes practicaly whole plains country.. He says in part: "The Staked Plains is dotted ev ery few miles with circular depres sions or lake basins, sometimes several mile3 in circumference, which after heavy rainfalls, con tain large quantities of water. "The drainage is toward the east and every five to fifteen miles a grassy ravine or 'draw' traverses this land, sometimes wide and deep, sometimes narrow and shal low. "The large proportion of crisp, bright, bracing, sunshiny days makes it a salubrious and delight ful climate to live in. Outdoor work can be carried on here almost every day in the year, sun-strokes are unknown, the nights are al ways cool, and this section is des tined to become the abiding place of a vigorous, healthy, hardy race of people; and a climate that con duces to that condition in the hu man race will also conduce to a good healthy condition of all the domestic animals. "The wealth of this tract in its natural state lies in the abundant supply of its excellent grasses. Tnere is probacy nowhere else such a fine sward of valuable grass es as is found here. "First of these in importance, quantity and universallity stands the true buffalo grass, unsurpassed ior grazing purposes, which, as a winter forage, is without an equal, and is greatly relished by all graz ing animals. It is a low growth, rarely more than five to six inches high, and it cures during the dry season on its roots into perfect hay, which recent tests at the ex periment station at Manhattan, Kan., show to be considerably su perior to the Kentucky blue grass and very much better than tim othv. "Next probably comes the curly mesquite, which is also very abun dant on these plains, and in the habit of growth closely resembles the true buffalo grass; matures on it roots and affords an excellent pasturage for all kinds of stock in the fall and winter. No grass stands drought better than this; at such times it dries up and appears dead, but in a few hours after a warm rain it becomes green to the end of the smallest branches. "The different varieties of gram ma grass are also very abundant here and make excellent pasturage. The blue and white gramma are unsurpassed for grazing purposes, and no other grass better with stands the tramping of stock, and they also cure in the turf into splendid hay, Other valuable spe cies of grasses abound here, among which may be mentioned the blue stem and bunch and sedge grasses (which are most in evidence where there is a large proportion of sand in the soil) and many others which afford excellent grazing and are more or less with those already mentioned. "It is our firm conviction that no country under the sun is better adapted than this to the stock farmer. This conviction is ground ed on fifteen years' experience in raising cattle on it. The present owners came into possession of it before any wells had been bored or fences built or improvements of any kind made upon it. Now there are over 300 wells, 1500 miles of splendid barbed wire fences, eight division headquarters buildings. and numerous line riders and wind mill greasers' camps upon it, be sides general headquarters, two townsites, several farms and other improvements, and everything nec essary for the proper care of the immense cattle herds now occupy ing it. "The female foundation stock of the present herd were purchased from about central Texas and were of the class common to that coun try at that time; with these females were put fine bulls from the north ern states, and for many years past nothing but pure bred bulls have been purchassd for this pur pose, the old inferior animals being annually weeded out. "The breeds in use are the Aberdeen-Angus. Hereford and Shorthorn, and they all have done well here. Probably a good idea of the improvement wrought in this herd may be derived from the statement of the fact that in 1887 the aged (three and four years old) netted between $16 and $1? in Chicago, and steers two years of age have been netting in recent years $20 on the ranch. It is gen erally conceded that in cattle rais ing in the southwest a larger per centage of calves may be expected than in the northwest, and that on the ranges of the northwest, cattle at maturity have a greater weight than they would further south, but here there is, because of its south erly latitude, the condition favor able to large calf crops, and be cause of its high altitude, the con dition favorable to greater weight, so that both of these favoring con ditions are combinded here in prob ably a greater degree than at any intermediate point. "There have been produced for several years past excellent crops, such as 6orghum, millet, alfalfa, Kaffir corn, milo maize, Jerusalem corn. etc. Kaffir corn may be de pended upon to produce thirty to forty bushels per acre, and some Indian corn has produced from twenty-five to thirty-five bushels per acre.

August 26th, and continuing thereafter on every Monday and Saturday up to and including De cerning 23rd, 1905, we will run regular stock trains for Kansas City, St. Joseph and Chicago markets on the following schedule: lv.

S. Government regu lations. They will lie reloaded in p. m. and reach Kansas City and St. Joseph markets on the following day. These trains are intended to take care of the small shipments which would otherwise have to be handled on way freight trains, but on account of the ne cessity of gathering these shipments all along the line we cannot guarantee the aliove schedule at all times. We will continue to handle trainload shipments, with proper notice, on any day of the week as suits the shipper. Shipiiers will file orders for cars at least three days before date on which they intend to load, and longer notice should be given whenever possible. D. L. MEYERS, Traffic Manager, table land near the headquarters of this ranch at Channing, in Hartley county, produced in 1900, 7,030 pounds to the acre 'as pretty feed as anyone ever saw,' and other crops were about equally as good. All this without irrigation. "!t must be remembered too that nearly all these farming experi ments are conducted on cattle ranches is in a ratherldesultory.sort of way, the farm getting attention, as a general thing, only when the ranch work did not demand it. With a better knowledge of farm ing operations and more familiarly with the most suitable methods and times of plowing, planting, cul tivating, harvesting and care of the crops which time will give, it is reasonable to expect even better results. "Splendid garden truck is raised here. Vegetables, such as cab bage, beets, onions, turnips, pota toes and melons of all kinds grow in great abundance. The melons are quite as good as the Vernon or Rocky Ford melons. ''In view of all these facts we firmly believe that for those par ties who are seeking new and .de sirable locations where they can follow farming and stock raising profitably, no portion of the United States offers greater inducements than this. It is equally well adapt ed to horses, sheep and all other domestic animals as it is to cattle." 1? The Cool Route Electric Fans EAST H03 NORTH C. VV. Strain, G. P. A. Fort Worth.
