moving them to his Arizona range.
Southwestern Stockman: The

hew Governor do not seem to be
in perfect accord, and the executive
committee of the territorial asso
ciation has been called to meet and
confer with him on the 11th inst.
New Mexico Exchange : Another
-peculiar cow case comes up in
Grant county. Israel King has
commenced a suit against a Mr.
Kale for $15,000 alleged damage
done him by the driving of an in
fected herd of cattle across his
range. The case will be watched
with interest by all stockmen.
Colorado Farmer : Notwithstand
ing the fact that we have hundreds
of thousands of acres of range in
Colorado, our territory is already
beginning to be too small. Our
herds will have to be reduced in
size, otherwise" there is danger
, ahead. ,
Denver (Colo.) Live Stock Rec

over upon the- 'Sundown slope will
iiave SOjOOO beeves to dispose-of

market-'this -way.
Exchange : A square-built, well
muscled horse will stand more
work add more hardship than two
lank, loose-jointed ones,, and not
require as much food as any one
. of them. " A half-breed Norman is
worth four scrubs in the harness,
or two in the market.
Southwestern Stockman : In
spector Frisk examined and ad
mitted 1,200 head more of stock
cattle this week for Snyder & Casey.
These gentlemen intend bringing
in 9000 in all, this season, which
they will place upon their range
on "the upper Gila.
Northwestern Live Stock Jour
nal: On Tuesday evening last,
the "Warren Live Stock Co. shipped
a car load ot young mules to Kan
sas. This is perhaps the first Wy
oming-raised mules ever shipped
from the territory, and is the in
auijerution of a new feature in our
stock business.
Northwestern Live Stock Jour
nal: The horses of the United
States are worth?1 according to the
report of the Department of Agri
culture, $852,282,000, and the
mules are worth $162,494,000
There was less shrinkage in values
in horses during the past year than
in any other class of live stock.
Colorado Live Stock Journal :
Since the disappearance of the
great herds of buffaloes, the
myriads of little birds which used
to go with the herds and protect
the -animals from nies and gnats
have turned their attention to per
forming the same good service for
domestic animals.
Medora (Dakota) Cowboy : The
Bad Lands Cattle Co. are greatly
pleased over their abundant calf
crop. It will run about seventy-
five per cent, and is the largest in
crease on the river. JNext year.
: however, we look for this ner cent
to be the average increase on the
whole river.
Kansas Farmer : From various
parts of the state, nearly 3000
cases of 'glanders among horses
have been reported to the State
Veterinarian, Dr. A. A, Holcombe.
"The Clark county (Ky.) Demo
crat reports a steer eighteen feet
long from the root of his tail to the
top of his head, six feet four inches
tall, eleven feet four inches around
the girth, three feet four inches "be
tween the tip of the hips and weigh
ing 4,250 pounds. This animal is
by long odds the largest steer in
the world.
Socorro Bullion : Considerable
discussion is now going on in the
live-stock journals, relating to the
dehorning of cattle. It is claimed
that the operation can be easily
performed, and without special
suffering to the animal. In car
shipments of cattle we can see
where the utility of the above
method would be very apparent.
Globe Live Stock Journal : The
agent of the Cheyenne Indians
says the present trouble is in no
way caused by the lease of their
lands to cattle men as some have
been pleased to state. The In
dians are now and always have
been perfectly satisfied with their
contracts with the cattlemen who
occupy their land as ranges.
Kansas City Live Stock Indi
cator: J. M. Frost, ot Houston,
Texas, is reported to have received
direct from India a Brahmin Bull

and volunteers the information that
the -Brahmin ''does better, prob
ably, in Southern Texas, than any
native animal, and the cross on

through Arizona grass cattle, con
sisting of 821 head of steers, aver
aging 961 pounds, for $3.27i per
hundred. They were shipped by
J. G. Campbell, direct from Ash
Fork, Arizona.
Rio Grande Republican : A di
vision is about to be made of the
Palo Blanco cattle ranch. Of the
60,000 head of cattle, Dorsey gets
eight, to Alley's, Nelson's and In-
gersoll's eleven. Dorsey also gets
one-half of the patented land'
which amounts to 50,000 acres.
His interest will then be worth
close on to $1,000,000. He has
taken his family to the ranch and
will reside there permanently.
Tucson Tailings : Sabino Otero
of this county, last week closed
the sale of 1600 cattle, to M. H.
Wells, of Navajo Springs, Apache
county. The price paid is under
stood to be $11 for one year olds,
$16 for twos and $24 for cows

Live Stock Circular : The prep
arations f or the next national con
vention of cattlemen in St. Louis
are proceeding in a quiet and ef
fective manner. Secretary At

ers' Association, has secured the
appointment of executive com
mittes in thirty states, and these
will act in concert with the local
associations, many of which have
appointed delegates. The member
ship of the association is growing
rapidly, and will add at least 500
attendants to the convention in ad
dition to the regularly appoint
ed, delegates.-
White Suipher Springs (Mont)
Husbandman: It is only a, ques
tion of a very short time when
Montana ranges will be overrun
with stock.
New Mexico Stock .Grower:
Thoroughbred cattle are in de
mand in New Mexico. The scrub
is on his last legs. Another season
will knock him out.
The Tombstone : A few years
ago it was the fashion to say that
Texas was designed especially for
cattle grazing. That verdict is be
ing rapidly reversed, and the lone
star state is coming out strong in
agriculture and running behind in
cattle grazing. .
Colorado (Texas) Clipper: Cat
tle shipments for the month of
June from the Colorado stock pens
foot up 13,651 head against" 2,500
forthe same month last year. It is
expected that from thirty to forty
thousand head will be shipped in
July, this month.
Glendive (Montana) Independ
ent: Vice-President Oakes says
that the cattle shipments over the
Northern Pacific railroad will in
crease from 4000 car-loads last
year to 5000 this year; and that
the Northern Pacific Refrigerator
company will ship one -train of
slaughtered beef per day during the
summer and fall.
Prescott Journal : The A. & -P.
railroad, company during the past
week, has sold to the Arizona cat
tle company 120,000 acres of land.
This extensive tract is located on
the north side of the road between
Flagstaff and Belmont. The price
realized by the railroad company is
one dollar per acre. John W.
Young is one of the principal pur
chasers. New Mexico Stock Grower : The
"war" which some of our sensation
al contemporaries a short time ago
predicted would soon be declared
between sheep and cattlemen in
this territory, appears to have end
ed before it was begun, at this sea
son of such a remarkably successful
year as the present has been to cat
tlemen of New Mexico, they are
too busy to bother with the affairs
of the sheep men.
Chenenne Transporter : The loco
weed is causing more trouble this
year in sections where prevalent
than ever before. An assessor of
taxes in the Panhandle of Texas
reports that in some places in the
edge of "no man's land" he recent
ly saw a number of dead steers
and many others crazy from the
effect of eating loco. The Indian
theory is that this weed increases
in quantity for a series of years
and then gradually dies out again.
It is hoped that this is correct, and
that there may henceforth
be a di munition of th bane
ful weed on the ranges.
Salt Lake Tribune : New "Mex
ico supplies the Chicago market
with large numbers of cattle every
year, and the herds are steadily
increasing. New Mexico has seven
large Associations, the largest of
which is the Northern New Mexico
Stock Growers' Association, whose
ranges practically cover Colfax,
Mora and San Miguel counties and
embrace 15,000,000 acres of land
on which 800,000 cattle graze, be
sides a large number of horses.
The other associations of New
Mexico are the Agua Caliente,
with 240,000 cattle, and a capital
of $2,500,000: the Wagon Mound
Association, with 170,000 cattle
and a capital of $S,000,000; the
Central New Mexico Stock Asso
ciation, with 500,000 cattle, and a
capital of $6,000,000; the Dona
Ana Association with 85,000 cattle
and a capital of $1,000,000, and
the Southwestern Association with
90,000 cattle, and a capital of $2,
000,000.

20,000,000 ACRES OF LAND FOR
Sale in New Mexico and Arizona.
THE ATLANTIC AND PACIFIC RAILROAD COMPANY.-
The Land Grant of this Company, in alternate
sections extends entirely across the i erntories of
New Mexico and Arizona, between the 34th and
26th decrees of north latitude. It is 650 miles long
-and 80 miles wide and includes some of the best
grazing lands of both Territories, in trie vaueya
arc 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 running water, the San Josej rises
near the summit of the Sier're Madrej and runs 75
miles eastward to the Rio Puerco and the compa
ny's road follows the whole length of its vdlley.
There are numerous fine valleys opening into the
valley of the San Jose, flanked bv grassy and woo
ded hills, upon which there is an open growth of
small cedar and pinon. There is an extensive belt
of good pine timber on the mountains, near the
railroad, and good springs are found on both slopes
oftheSierfe Madre. There is a large coal field
west of Fort Wingate which has been fully ex
plored, and which will afford labor fora 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, anil the United States Surveyors, who
made the official surveys of the country, say they
are as good, if not better, than those of Wyoming
and Idontana. The Navajo Indians grow corn
without irrigation, in the valreys of the Puerco of
the Westj 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 grwn by irrigation,'
the finest of potatoes, oats, -wheat, barley . arid gar
den vegetables of large size and fine cjuality have
been successfully grown without irrigation on
