On tho north side of this reservation U another known as the Wichita reservation, wliicli may bo Included at the bho time, but Ibis is not yet known. The law otrciiiii',' tho reservation, provides Hint the allotments shall bo made in from three to six month, and makes It jhe duty of the I'rcsideut to issue s proclamation opening the country within six months after the al lotments are made. It ii not likely that live resident will take the six month, nivJ and h may issue his proclamation immedi ctoly after the allotments are made. Thus it may bo sem tlie lands may be open at any time from the early lpn!5 to slimmer of ivext year. j'HomcnvENEss. There need be no doubt of the product ivenesof tlieae lands. They have been tried in every ipiarier with a result that lias produced 20 to HO bushels ot wheat, and 40 to 50 bushels of corn )cr acre. These cropa have been raised by farmers living en In dian lauds. The valleys of the washiti, of Cache ereek, Heaver and other stream! are more or less cultivated every year, and nl ways give good returns. Tee uplands are productive of all cereals, ancljafford the fin est grazing in the world.
