A Minneapolis /rthunc reporter en
countered Oliver Dalrvinple, owner
and manager of the famous farm,
regard to wheat raising this year.
Dairy tuple said: "I put in 30,000 ;
of wheat this year. Tim
never more advantageous, nor the
ground in botter condition for seeding
than it was this spring. There was no
snow on the prairie to speak of. and,
consequently, no water to retard the
progress of the farmers in their sprint
work. The wheat 1 put in this year is
known as the Scotch fife variety; I con
sider it the best yielding seed that 1
eau get. I anticipate that the acreage
of Miuuesota and Dakota this year will
be about as largo as it was last. The
taruicrs seem to bo in good condition
and good spirits, and with a bright
outlook for a good crop they will seed
all the land they can. I am countin< r
on an average yield next fall of eigiit

the tenth crop I have raised in Dakota,
and I have averaged 90 cents a bushel
for my wheat Of course sonic has
been more and some less, but I think I
can safely put the average at 90 cents.
I don t think it will be necessary for
me to increase niv number of machines
this year; what I have are in good con
dition. Next full I shall run 200 har
vesters and twine-binders and thirty
steam threshers, if the crop turns out
as I expeet it will, and this will neces
sitate the employment of 800 horses
and 1,000 men. Advances were made
to me some time ago by the Canadian
Pacific railroad company to open tip
large farm in the Sashatchewau valley,
for the purpose of demonstrating the
advantages of that country as a wheat
raising region, biit I concluded that
Dakota was good enough for me and
propose to stay by her. She has un
doubtedly the richest soil to be found
in any part of the United States.
Western Missouri and southwestern
Nebraska come next Wo have had a
tine winter in the territories. Stock
has wintered splendidly. The farmery
have been comfortable, and everybody
seems to be satisfied."
Prisoners at Massowah.
I have just come to Massowah from
Siiakim, where five miles from that
city I visited the recent battle-ground.
I came from Suakiiu to Massowah in
the Egyptian ship Melulla, in company
with many rebels, prisoners taken in
the late battles. Loaded with irons,
but not subdued, they were proud to
have fought in the holy
of them in their fury, and unable to do
anything else, bit the railing of the
deck; others spit on their chains. At
their bead was an old sheik, whose
heard contrasted strangely with his
dark face. During the day he stared
gloomily at the sea, and in the even
ing, when the sun set, he called all his
follow-prisoners to prayer,
tremely surprised when an Arab offi
cial, one Ibraim Kffendi Lufti, who
was on board, told me that all these
prisoners were destined for Massowah
and the neighborhood, and not only
they, but live huudred others, who
would be forwarded iu a few days. All
were to be confided to the custody of
the Italian soldiers. The Egyptian of
ficer seemed himself surprised at this.
Why send to Massowah—where at any
time the few soldiers might lie wanted
to suppress an insurrectionary move
ment <*f the untiles? Why send there
such a large »um »er of fanatical pris
oners already used to war? It is a
bad sign that when there prisoners
pass through the streets of Massowah
they are surrounded by a number of
natives, who press their hands and ex
press signs and words which to me
seem very suspicious .—Massowah Cor.

Connecticut'*) Kicking Hornes.
lu a big stable iu Voluutown, in
which are thirty horses, is the most fa
mous kicking horse in the Slate. She
is not, writes a Norwich, Conn., cor
respondent to the New York (■ un, like
ordinary horses that kick, but she lias
a talent for unique ami tinished kick
ing. Her owner keeps her beeati e she
is an equine curiosity. She kicks con
tinually, and when there is no live
thing to kick at, the neighbors say, she
stays up nights paring oil' the top of
the stall with her heels. One evening
a few days ago. a Norwich-troiit hunt
er, in prowling about the stable, un
consciously sauntered up toward the
kicker to get a nearer view of a glass
frame, over the stall, in which was a
brown-paper placard, bearing the sin
gle word, in black ink, • Dangerous."
lie had just mastered the word when
there was a couple of sharp reports,
and a small splinter from the top board
of the stall fell at his feet.
"Hi. there!'' yelled a hostler, who
was rubbiug down a pair of team hors
es, "if you don't want to be kicked out
of the town you'd bettor come away
from that stall. That's the kicking
horse.
"What! does she kick?" innocently
inquired the visitor, as another explo
sion followed, which lowered the stall
another sixteenth of an inch.
"Kick! waal—ruthcr! She kicks
everything and everybody, and all the
the time.
"Hut how do you take care of her,
then? Does she kick you?"
"Waal, not so much. She don't
kick me oftener than four or live times
a week; but she can spot a stranger
every time. She's a sly one, though.
Just look at lier now!"
The mare had turned her arched
neck, and her full, liquid eye, which
shone a red violet in the glare of the
stable lantern, beamed with benevo
lence, and a coaxing invitation to come
up nearer.
"You orter seen her kick a feller
from the village that conic in here
drunk the other night," remarked the
hostler. "I told him to keep away,
but he 'lowed he waru't afraid o' no
kickin' horse, and he walked up to the
stall and said, 'Soli! Sal! what's eatin'
on ye?' Just then she fetched him
one. She kicked him clean across the
Hour, eighteen foot, without touching
ground, and landed him on the back of
a cow in the opposite stall; and then
the cow kicked iiim half way back.
You see the cow wain't nigh so good a
kicker as the mare. Waal, that feller
was plumb-full when the horse lifted
him, but when he got hack from the
cow he was the soberest man you ever
see. He didu't say a word, but slid
out of the stable quiet and went home.
Next night lie was in here again,
came in kind o' softly, and sneaked
up where 1 was lixin' up the beddin'
for a stall, and said in a whisper: 'Is
that ar' spile-driver in here to-night?'
'If you mean that ar' kickin' boss,'
says 1, 'you kin jest bet she is.' 'lloss,'
says he; that ain't no boss—that's a
mule,' them things in the army,' says
he. 'It war jest afore a battle, and she
kicked me so fur to the rear that it
took me two days to walk back. They
war goin' to court-martial me; but the
same mule got loose the night afore
the trial was to come oil', and kicked
down the guard tent, and spiked two
cannon with lier heels. After that
they believed my story.' "
The Norwich man slept in a neigh
boring hotel that night, and whenever
he awoke, the distant subterranean
thuds thatjgjvere borne through the
tuoohIi»ht to his ear gave token that
the kicking horse was keeping herself
in practice.
