Texas Live Stock Journal : Cat-
tie have drifted across the plains

, - ., 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.

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

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

Animal Industry, beat Texas cat-
tle owners out of, at the very least

THE ATLANTIC AND PACIFIC RAILROAD COMPANY, .
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.
Wells have been sunk and good water has been
obtained.
A stream of iunning water, the San Jose, rises
near the summit of the Sicrre Madre, and runs 75
miles eastward to the Rio Pucrco, and the compa-
s road follows the whole length of its valley
here are numerous fine valleys opening into the
vallev of the San Jose, flanked bv grassy and woo-
ded Kills, upon which there is an open growth of
small ccaar ana pinon. 1 nerc is anctunsivc dcii
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 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

the slopes of the San Francisco mountains.-
On these mountains there is an extensive trmbe'r
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 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.
The belt of the Atlantic & Pacific Railroad
Land Gntnt includes the only af ailablc grazing
land in the country south of the Missouri River
that can be purchased in large areas ; and the
section of country through which Aisroad passes
will become the best beef producing region of
the United States.
Mans of the Land Grant will be forwarded on
application and properly acredited persons desire
inc to inspect grazing lands, with d. view to pur
chase and extablish stock faricheSj will be gviert
facilities for that purpose.
