The herd took atrain of twentv Stock Review : . A square built well-muscled 'horse will stand more work and more hardships than two lank, loose-jointed ones. and not require as much food as one of them. A half breed Nor man is worth four scrubs in the harness or two in the market. Northwestern Live Stock Jour nal : While prices are not as eng couraging as the' might be, still there has not been such a decline in beef as was anticipated a few weeks ago. And from present appear ances the great decline looked for is not apt to take place at all. Prescott Journal : Fifty and sixty- percent of animal increase from a given number of cows is the rate for the cold northwest range country, while in Arizona, country, with a full complement of bulls seventy-five to ninety per cent in crease is the rate. Salt Lake Tribune : It is expect ed that the Northern Pacific cattle shipments this year will reach 5, 000 car loads. Last year the num ber of car loads was about 4000.

Clark, of Clifton, who bought the cattle from the administrator of the Luther brothers' estate, we learn that it is his intention to re tain the stock on some range on the Frisco, and "take up" a ranch, Upon which he will build a dwelling and make a home for himself and family. Texas Stockman : The wool "growing industry of the United states has been slaughtered, not as -were the Philistines, by the jaw bone of an ass, but by the jaw -bone of a whole lot of asses. Those jaw bones still Avag, but more feebly and with less noise than a year ago. Socorro Bullion : The local and territorial associations are perform ing an important work in S3rstem atizing the cattle business and re- gentleman. Kansas City Stock Record: It was learned that W.

Phoenix Gazette : Fine stock hvpprlino- is hniinrl fr lionmrin nno of the most important industries of the Salt river valley. Experi ments so far made have been quite satisfactory. There are no winters to retard the growth of young ani mals, and horses, particular!, bred and raised in this climate have shown great powers of endurance, Wilnnv Sf.-ipkn-mn ! Thn ftfnnfc- man acknowledges a pleasant call Wednesday from E. O. Shaw, who passed up the valley with 1,600 head of cattle which he is under contract to drive to the Wabash Cattle company's range in Apache county.

Southwestern Stockman : Frank Johnson,colorcd, a herder for Caleb Martin, was killed by lightning on Wednesday of last week, wfiilo rid- in ranee near Fort Grant.

The plans are in the hands of the architects and the work will be in operation at an early da-. Texas Live Stock Journal : Cat- tie have drifted across the plains to the Pecos in large numbers on , - ., I account of the severity of the winter. The "drift" (straying) of cattle has been worse than in any previous winter in the history of Texas. Twenty-thousand head have so far been recovered, and it is held that it will require the com bined efforts of the entire western country to get the cows home to their respective ranges. Exchange : In Colorado recently a cowboy attempted to swim his horse across a swollen stream, but the horse no sooner entered the stream till he sank out of sight and was seen no more. On several horse girthed in this manner can- not swim. Texas Stockman : The men who originated the. quarantine, beat Texas out of three dollars a heac upon every yearling she had for sale, and the proportion runs about the same for all classes o cattle. This means that free grass and its twin fraud, the Bureau of Animal Industry, beat Texas cat- tle owners out of, at the very least a million aUCi a Halt ClOlJarS. AllCl who derives the benefit? The few speculators who got up the scheme the "business scheme" as one of them called it. Prescott Journal: Messrs. P.J McCormick, J. AY Sullivan, Stephen Ross and AVm. Gailand expect to ship this week or next twenty-six car loads of cattle to JJurimgame, Kansas, where they wm G placed on pasture tor month or six weeks preparatory to beinS shipped to the Kansas City marKet- ine distance to ivansas I l i f Ml t i , Tr K is so Sat that considerable sumiKage is sustained in snipping direct.

Kansas City Live Stock Record : What can be done to lessen thc number of dead and dying ani mals sent to market? . There is no more disabled stock comins this year than usual, but there is far too much. Overloading is one of the Prolific c,auses- 11 is sickening to see the large number of crippled and bruised animals that come to market every da'. Many of them are condemned by the authorities, but there must be many of them ;oing into consumption that are wholly unfit for food: There arc all kinds of patent improved stock cars, but most of them are inmrnn- ticable.

Touch a man on his tender spot and 3rou will hear from him. Cattle thieves indicted and convicted create considerable fear and trembling in the rank of the "rustlers." All the cattle and horse thieves of this county have not yet been caught and tried.

A strong sense of security in personal properly run- ninS at larSe as the livc stock of tms lanu muso 10 jreu grass ana water, demands that the line shall bo- very tightly drawn between those in the cattle business who act upon honor under all circum stances, and those in the same line of business, who, if thev consider it safe, and there be no probable show for detection, appropriate to themselves the property of their neighbors. The live stock'interest of our county should be fostered and protected to the full extent of the law, as.it is the main support oi all our ot-ner industries. HOLBROOK, A.T. ID. M SANFORD.

The T-and Grant of this Company, in alternate sections extends entirely across the Territories of New Mexico and Arizona, between the 34m ana ofirh decrees of north latitude. It is 6so miles long and 80 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 oeen grazed, and lare herds have been grazed in the country ever since tne coming 01 uie .utiiwiia.

There is a large coal field west of Fort Wingatc which has been "fully ex plored, and which will afford labor fora large pop ulation, thcre 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 thegrazing areas are supplied wtih good water, and 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 Montana. The Navajo Indians grow corn without irrigation, in the valreys of thePuerco 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 g'rown 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 City Drug Store, OPrOSITE AJiMIJO HOUSE.

In fact, the whole of the , country traversed by the road is very picturcsqucf and beautiful, and many towns are Joeing built along its route. The Valley of the Rio Grande, at Albuquerqe is5,ooo feet above the sea, and the passes of the Sierra Madre and the San Francisco mountainsjit Arizona, have elevations of 7,300, witha depres sion at Winslow, on the Little Colorado, where the altitude is 5,000 feet ; the climate is mild and saiubrous. Cattle and sheep grase throughout the year and do not need to be sheltered or grain fed during the winter. The nights are cool during1 the summer. The Company is now prepared to make! sales of its grazing lands in quantities of 50,000 acres or more, at prices ranging from one dollar (of even less for larger quantities,) to one dpllar and a half an acre, upon payment of Ofie-fourth the purchase value at date of contract of sale, the remainder in payments as may bt agreed upont bearing six per cent interest ; and irrigable agri cultural lands' in tracts of forty acres or more.
