McEwak, Tesx., April 12.
The spring is very late for this part
of the country. Some have their corn
ground ready, but very few have plant
ed yet. The prospect for fruit is very
flattering: peaches and plums are in
bloom. McEwanwas located during
the war, and at present is a brisk little
town of about 350 inhabitants. It sup
ports a steam grist mill, stave factory
and planing mill, 12 dry goods and
grocery stores, 2 blacksmith shops,
post 'office, and two doctors. The
churches are Methodist, Campbcllite,
Catholic and Negro. There are very
good schools here, which are in session
ten months in the year. They are
carried on on the plan of seminaries.
There are echolars from all parts of the
country who pay their tuition accord
fag to the nusaber of studies. The
teacher! name ia Samuel Simpson.

Stratton, Neb., April JO, 1885.
En. Chief; As you get letters from
other places I thought you would like
to hear from here. The soil is a black
loam, no sand. The lauds on the
creeks are called gulches and canyons.
In the canyons is where they mow the
hay.'. The creeks have lots of nice
timber on them. The lands oil the
creeks are called table lands, because
it is so level '1 he land mostly si Jpes
to the south. There is some mighty
fine land here. On the table lands
they have to go pretty deep for water,
hut" when they do they get good water.
The grazing here is buffalo grass on the
table land, and on the creek and river
bottoms is hluo grass. Homesteaders
are as thick as bees here, and they are
all at work. Some building, some are
braking, and some are digging wells
Work is plenty and wages" high,
