Dodcce City Journal : Colorado complains that Texas cattle come to their state billed New Mexico etdck. Globe Stock Journal : The Mon t.nnn. live stock men meet at Hel ena, August 17th; It is too cold up there to get around during the winter, so they meet in the sum mer. Globe Live Stock Journal : The Pueblo count', Colorado, stockmen say that no more Texas cattle will be shipped to and unloaded at Pueblo for the purpose of" driving north. Just how they are going to i prevent it, is not stated. Albuquerque Democrat : The Billings Laild and Cattle company have just receive 1500 head of nice conditioned Texas cattle. The company have been successful in striking water with driver! wells at the depth of 22 feet. Globe Live Stock Journal: 'A flock of three hundred and fifty head of sheep were driven through "Wichita last week by two young ladies, who told our reporter they were going to drive them to Meade county. Texas Stockman: During the past year the Wyoming Live Stock Association has expended upwards cf $53,000 for work against the criminal classes while the eight associations ot Texas have expend ed for the same purpose but $20,000. Dodge City Cowboy : The total number of sales of horses during the week is 732, which is the largest weekly, sale of the season.. No more arrivals reported and none on the trail. The number of horses now on the market is 3,884. Winnemucca (New) Silver State : Three car-loads of graded Durham bulls and one car-load of brood mares and stallions arrived here last night from California for W. B. Todhunter. One of the horses, Prince of Norfolk, was bought at auction for $3,700. Vernon (Texas) Guard : About 20,000 head of stock cattle passed through town yesterday. They had been shipped up from the southern range and unloaded at Harrold. They were put on the trail at this place, and will be driven up to the northwesternrange country. . Dodge City (Kan.) Stock Jour nal : Twenty families it is said were made very sick at Rock Island, Til 4-1 f"vvk- r o 4 , 11 nr I l rnn on1 : - j 3 O l)eef. A butcher that will sell other than that he knows to be perfectly good wholesome beef, is a fit sub ject for a life in state's prison. New Mexico Stock Grower : Ac cording to the returns made to the statistical department of the agri cultural bureau, the precentage of increase in cattle the last year was greater in New Mexico, and the .losses the smallest in Arizona and New Mexico, each territory" show ing the same percentage. Exchange: The Illinois Legis lature passed an act to take effect January 1st, to suppress contagious diseases among cattle, and provides for the slaughter of all cattle known J to be infected, and for the payment I of the owner thereof, at a fair mar ket nrice out of the funds of the State Treasury: Dodge City Stock Journal : The cowmen neat the Navajo reserva tion in New Mexico, sa)r they won't stand the raiding of those reds on their herds any longer and intend to do some shooting. The cowmen out there want to remember that they will be attacking big game if they jump on the Navajosj as they number over twenty thousand, and can throw five thousand warriors in the field finely armed and mounted, in three days time. Bet ter commence on small tribes and work up to the Navajos by degrees. Socorro Bullion: Uowbov3 are paid ah average of. $30 per month, including grub, throughout Central New Mexico ; foreman $60 to $75. One ranch manager, or foreman, with two cowboys, will handle two to three thousand cattle on the range, unless the country should be very mountanioiiSj when an addi tional man would be required. Texas Stockman : The srndicattes that oppose the passage of Texas cattle through the Neutral strip have had representatives in South ern Texas this season trying to buy yearlings at seven dollars, to be driven to this same territory where they are so terribly afraid of Texas fever. Our opinion of the Texas fever scare, as expressed at the out set, continues to be vindicated. Toyah (Texas) Mirror: The Champion Cattle company, of Col orado City, is moving its cattle from its old ranch, on Champion creek, Mitchell county, to its new ranch near Lordsburg, New Mexico. Five thousand head of cattle be longing to this company, eng route west, were fed and reshipped at this place the early part of the week. About 10,000 head are yet to follow. Albuquerque Democrat : Jeff. Leforce, who is one of the trusted j men of the Aztec Cattle Company is here. He and eleven other boys have just arrived at Isleta- with 1800 head of Texas cattle. Thev have been on the road 60; days. The cattle will be shipped from Isleta in a day or so, or as soon as they are rested. This bunch will swell the number of cattle on the ranch to 8000 head. The company will put 30,000 head on the range. ' Tucson Tailings : The cattlemen of southern Arizona are beginning to be very anxious in regard to the summer rains, which usually com mence a week or ten days earlier than this. Feed is getting very scarce, and in some places the cat tle are forced to live on brush. Those who have lived here for a long time say that the July rains have been much lighter during the past seven years, than they were previously. The Tombstone: The regular quarterly meeting of the Cochise County Stock Growers' association was held Saturday afternoon at the rooms of the Board of Supervisors and a goodly number of the mem bers were present There were two or three initiations and the Secre tary was informed that there would be several more at the next regular meeting The association is in good condition but lacks vim. Each member should put his shoulder to the wheel and see that every cattleman in the count' joins, rne association lias accom plished a great deal of good since its organization. Socorro Bullion : The territorial meeting of the cattlemen at Santa Fe, on the 11th inst., which was called for the purpose of discussing measures relating to quarantine inspection, etc., was attended by about twenty stock owners. The nib of "the resolutions adopted by this "Congress of Cattlemen3' was that the stockmen should in the future make the T-rail instead of the trail as a means of transporting live stock. It was also resolved that range owners ought to protect themselves from the incursion of barbarian cattle especially Texas herds. A bit of woolly sympathy was extended to the sheepmen, and a humble acknowledgment was made to the Governor that "Allah is great. Long live Allah !" Allah on his part assured the representa tives of "the greatest industry on earth" that he would be pleased to confer with the pastoral .lords at all times in matters appertaining to their business, and would act his own pleasure in all that he did: Southwestern Stockman : A number of the cattlemen of south eastern Arizona have determined upon making a trial of the Kansas Market and some days ago sent a consignment of several carloads of beef cattle to "White & Holmes of that city. The consignors were George Hill, of Bowie Station, 2 cars : Lane Fisher, of Duncan, 4 cars : P. F. Buck, of Duncan, 2 cars ; and Hart Bros, of Lords burg, N. M., 6 cars. "We have not learned the prices obtained, but if satisfactory, these shipments will 'be succeeded br numerous others as there are many beef cattle in the county. Beef and JBullion : It doesn't take neonle Ions to find out that running a newspaper in Arizona is a rapid road to wealth. Two more naters will be started within the next two weeks, one at Casa Grande, bv -Mr. Elliott, and Hoof and Horn, a stock paper at Pres cott. The latter should be a suc cess, as there are at present only three daily papers at Prescott and the town contains nearly half as many inhabitants as Tucson. Kansas Cow Boy: Some of our ranchmen are embarking in the business of raising buffaloes. There are about fifty head on the range of the Francklyn Land and Cattle Company, and there" are some buffaloes on the Goodnight range. C. P. Jones, of Garden City has also some. The Franklyn com pany are paying fifty dollars a head for buffalo calves. There is a herd of 4000 buffaloes on the Neutral Strip. When buffalo robes are worth from $15 to $20 a piece, and buffalo steak 12 cents a pound in the Dodge City market, it would seem as if there was money in buffalo raising. A dozen years ago millions.-.of.buffaloes roamed at 1 will over the plains, and the7 were slaughtered for fun and their robes. It would not be surprising if they would yet be more valuable than beef cattle. Beef and Bullion : Mr. Achen bach, manager of the Arizona Live Stock and Improvement Co., is in town from the company's ranch, 15 miles east of Mesaville, in Pinal count'. The company is an Iowa organization, with $50, 000 cash capital paid up at par, with interest at 8 per cent added, from date of organization. No Stock jobbing foolishness about that. The capital will soon be in creased. On the ranch are several silver mines," belonging to an affiliated concern (The Ida Gold and Silver Mining Company), on which considerable work has been done. Its from the shafts of these mines that the company gets its water supply, which is hoisted by pumps. The pumps and corral have just been completed. Tucson Star : The initial day's drive from this point northward of a bunch of 1,500 head of cattle was begun yesterday by Eugene Shaw and L. A, Smith The cattle are mostly yearlings and two-year-olds, and were purchased by the "Wabash Cattle company from Messrs. Juan Elias and Sabino Otero. The cat tle will be driven to the Navajo Springs ranch, in Apache county; near the line of the Atlantic and Pacific railroad, distance from this place about 350 miles. The route taken will be by Steel's ranch near Willcoxj Eureka Springs, Hooker's ranch, Fort Thomasj crossing the Gila river a short distance above the sub:agency, and . proceeding thence to Fort Apache. The outfit consists of seventeen vaquerosj each with three mounts and two wagons loaded with supplies.- It is expected the cattle will arrive at their desti nation in about forty days.- Mess. Shaw and Smith receive $l.o0 per head for the delivery of the cattle at Navajo Springs, they paying all expenses of the drive' and making good whatever losses,- if an, that occur.- m PROFESSIONAL CARDS.

It js 650 miles Ion? and Soifales wide and includes some of the best grazin glands 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 funning water, the San Jose, rises near the summi;of the Sierre Madre, and runs 75 miles eastward to'the Kio if ucrcoj and the compa ny's road follows the whole length of its valley. There are numerous fine valleys opening into the vnllev of the San Tosc. flanked by grassy arid woo ded hills, upon which there is ah open growth of of good pine timber on the mountains, near the railroad, and good springs are found on both slopes of the Sierre Madre. There is a large coal field west of Fort Wingate which has been fully ex plored, and which will afford labqffora.torge pop ulation, there arc 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 thS country, say they are asgood, 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, parity, and garden vegetables are grown by irrigation, the finest of potatoes, oats, wheat, barley and gar den vegetables of large size and fine cjuality have been successfully grown without irrigation on small ccaar anu ymu.i. iiicicnacii:u3ivi.ui.it WATCHES AT GREATLY REDUCED PRICES.
