THE ATLANTIC AND PACIFIC RAILROAD COMPANY.
The Land Grant of this Company, jn alternate
sections extends entirely across the Territories of
New Mexico and Arizona, between the 34th and
36th degrees of north latitude. It is 650 miles long
and So miles wide and includes some of the best
grazing lands of both Territories. In the valleys
are many desirable tracts of agricultural land, sus
ceptible of irrigation. A sufficiency of water has
been found wherever cattle and sheep have been
grazed, and large herds have been grazed in the
country ever since the coming of the Mexicans.
Wells have been sunk and good water has been
obtained,
A stream of tunning water, the San Jose, rises
near the summitof the Sierrc Madre, and runs 75
milts eastward to the Rio Puerco, and the compa
ny's road follows the whole length of its valley.
There are numerous fine valleys opening into the
valley of the San Jose, flanked by grassy and woo
ded hills, upon which there is an open growth of
small ceuar ana pinon. 1 nerc is anevi nsieueit
of good pine timber on the mountains, near the
railroad, and good springs are found on both slopes
oftheSierre Madre. There is a large coal field
west of Fort Wingate which has been fully ex
plored, and which will afford labor for a large pop
ulation, there are also coal deposits on the eastern
slope of the Sierra Madre. Many varieties of buil
ding stone are found in great abundance along the
line of the road.
In Arizona the grazing areas are supplied wtih
good water, and the United States Surveyors, who
made the official surveys of the country, say they
arc as good, if not better, than those of Wyoming
and Montana. The Navajo Indians grow corn
without irrigation, in the valreys of the Puerco of
the West, on the Company's lands, and in the val
ley of the Little-Colorado, also on the line of the
road, good crops of corn, sorghum, oats, barley,
and garden vegetables are grown by irrigation,
the finest of potatoes, oats, wheat, barley and gar
den vegetables of large size and fine quality have
been successfully grown without irrigation on

the slopes of the San Francisco mountains.
On these mountains there is an extensive timber
belt, diversified by beautiful valleys and parks,
with good water and wonderful canons throuhg
which the road passes. In fact, the whole-of the
country traversed by the road is very picturesque
and beautiful, and many towns are jbeing built
along its route.
The Valley of the Rio Grande, at Albuquerqe
is 5,000 feet above the sea, and the passes of the
Sierra Madre and the San Francisco mountains, in
Arizona, have elevations of 7,300, witha depres
sion at AVinslow, on the Little Colorado, where
the altitude is 5.000 feet ; the climate is mild and
saiubrous. Cattle and sheep graze throughout
the year and do not need to be sheltered or grain
fed during the winter. The nights arc cool during
the summer.
The Company is now prepared to make sales
of its grazing lands in quantities of 50,000 acres
or mo,re, at prices ranging from one dollar (or
even less for larger quantities,) to one dollar and
a half an acre, upon payment of one-fourth the
purchase value at .date of contract of sale, the
remainder in payments as may be agreed upon,
bearing six per cent interest ; and irrigable agri
cultural lands in tracts of forty acres or more.
The belt of the Atlantic & Pacific Railroad
Land Grant includes the only available grazing
land in the country south of the Missouri River
that can be purchased in large areas; and the
section of country through which this road passes
will become the best beef producing region of
the United States.
Maps of the Land Grant will be forwarded on
application and properly acreditcd persons desire
ing to inspect grazing lands, with a view to pur
chase and extablish stock ranches, will be gvien
facilities for thatpurpose.

FLAGSTAFF LETTER.
Flagstaff, Ariz.
April 19, 1SS5
Editor Herald :
A number of eastern gentlemen
arrived last evenins and are visit
ing the cliff dwellings to-day, un
der guidance of Major Miner.
Your correspondent learns from
an authentic source that a promi
nent gentlemen of Chicago has se
cured a house and made every ar
rangement for spending a portion
of the summer here. He will be
accompanied by a number of
friends, and a grand excursion will
be made, during the month of May
to the Grand Canon of the Colora
do, by the entire party.
D. M. Riordon, superintendent
of the Ayer Mill and Lumber Com
pany, has just returned from an ex
tended trip through California, on
business for his firm. The compa
ny recently sold one million feet of
lumber in one lot, and it is proba
ble the mill at this place will be
crowded to its utmost capacity dur
ing the present season.
The business house of De Witt
Newell has been seized by San
Francisco creditors and in view of
the number of writs of attachments
that adorn the front it is probable
that somebody will be loser. It
is said that the suits are brought at
the instance of the San Francisco"
Board of Trade. Mr. Newell in the
meantime has transferred his stock
of merchandise to his father to
whom he claimed to be indebted.
and it is expected that the San
Francisco parties will try to break
this sale. The attachments were
issued in the justice court at this
place, but Mr. Newell's attorney
has brought suit to recover proper
ty in the district court. T. G. Nor-
ris is attorney for plaintiffs, and
awyer Mi Her for defendant. Much

as an honest, energetic and benev

The town, at the present time, is
filled with strangers, some of them
capitalists looking for invest
ments, some tourists travelling for
pleasure ; but the majority of them
are hardy and honest sons of toil,
looking for employment and earn
estly wishing the Ayer Mill and
the Mineral Belt railroad would
start operations.
J. R. Kilpatrick, one of our lead
ing merchants, has gone east, and
will visit New Orleans and the
World's Fair before he returns. In
his absence the establishment will
be conducted by (Jbl. Buck Thom
as and Ralph Cameron.
Sam S. King, cashier and book
keeper for P. J. Brannen & Co., is
soon to start a branch house in
which however, he has admitted a
partner, who will conduct its af
fairs for the present. It is expect
ed other members will be admitted
into the new establishment, as bus
iness increases, and it is to be hop
ed that the house of King & King,
and subsequent additions, will pros
per. T. G. Nora's, attorney-at-law, has
just returned from a legal trip to
Ash Fork. Mr. Norris is building
up a good reputation in our cit7
and is kept quite busy in the prac
tice of law.
Henry J. Miller has a number' of
suits pending in the district court,
which he. has been employed to
conduct, and shares the legal busi
ness of his home town with Mr.
Norris. Hal.

STOCK KOTES
Cincinnati is puttin
for the Texas cattle trade-.
not?
Of the ten thousand cattle that
Messrs. Delano & Dwyer of Colfax,
county New Mexico, drove up fromjr
Texas last year, not more than one
half per cent have died;
A- stockman says if you will dig
a trench and fill it with water,
strongly impregnated with carbolic
acid, with grease on top and will
drive your cattle through it, they
will not be troubled by heel flies.
Under the Colorado quarantine
proclamation cattle will be permit
ted to pass through that state on
railroads by feeding in a yard spec-'
ially set apart for through cattle.
One of the best things in tho'
world to give a horse after he has
been driven hard is a quart of oat
meal stirred in a quart of water.
It refreshes and strengthens him,
relieves his immediate thirst, and
prepares his stomach for more sol
id food.
A cure for lice on stock is said to
bo. the water in which potatoes have
been boiled. This should be rub
bed on the animal in copious quan-'
tities. Another cure highly recom
mended is to take dry sulphur and
rub it well about the mouth and
eyes and along the backbone of tho
animal. One application is suffi-.
cient. A mixture of scotch snuff
andhosr's lard is also recommended.
The Dakota legislature has re
pealed the herd law which has been
in existence for some year3, and
has established a fence law. Tim
new law will be of great benefit to
the stockmen.
"Well, times have changed," rc-
marked a cowboy to us a few daysr
ago, "won't allow us to play cards-"

convention will give orders for fam

going to Texas or Missouri."
Live Stock Transportation.
Age of Stcel.J
The trouble in shipping cattle at
the present day is not because suit
able cars cannot be built, or that
cattle cannot be fed, watered and
rested while on their journey ; but
it residts from the necessity of
cheapening the cost of transporta
tion by carrying as many cattle as
possible in a car, and by continu
ous running so as to make the trip,
in the quickest possible time. This,
will do very well for short distanc
es that can be made in from 12 to
18 hours, but where cattle are driv
eng long distances.to place of ship
ment, and are then packed into
cars to remain from 50 to 100 hours,
with imperfect feeding and an out
side rest the case is very s different..
If cars could be made so as to give
the animals plenty of room to ' lie
down and at the same time be. fur
nished with feed and water, with
out increasing the cost of carring-
them, it would have been done long-
ago. "Palace" cattle cars were in
vented and patented a dozen years
ago, with ample provisions of ma
king the cattle comfortable and
saving them from protracted mis-.
cry which they now have to indure..
One of these cars is 36 feet long-
and 9 half feet wide, which is 10
feet longer and one foot wider than
stock cars usually are. It would
carry 16 cattle of ordinary size and
give them plenty of room, but no.
such cars are running on any- of
the roads now, because the compel
tition will not admit of it. No road;
is going to carry cattle in palace'
cars, packed in as loosly as- hyenas
and tigers in a traveling menagerie'
while a rival road, by prodding and
tail-twisting, carries twice as many
in the same number of pars of the .
common kind. The best car from
to the square foot without killing;- ,-
the steers before-reaching their de2
tination.
