falls in the spring and summer. The
summers are not disagreeably warm,
as there is always a cool breeze espec

first began to settle in 1870. In 1871
the county was organized withapopu

creasing. There are at prevent 38 or

There is yet a considerable amount of,
government lands for homesteads and
pre-emptions. As a stock raising
country It is hard to excel. Cattle do
well, and for sheep it cannot be beat
en. It is just suited to that. For
tunes can be easily made by raising
sheep as the expense of feeding is very
small. That corn, oats, barley, pota
toes, buck wheat,- and all kinds of
roots and vegetables, are grown here
with little labor. 35 bushels of sod
corn to the acre is nothing new. Wheat
averages about 23 bushels to the acre.
Fruit does extremely well. Every!

boxelder, whitewobd, soft maple, and
many other kinds of trees grow into
timber large enough for fuel in about

nicely, and in a few years your live
fences can be made. Moohanics find
employment and fair wages. Tho very
best and purest water is obtained bv
going from 5 to 100 feet. The cost is
very small when tho well , is bored.

of this county are the Republican and

Cattle still do well since this is one ot
tho greatest feeding couuties in the
state. The llurcau of labor on crop
statistics shows that tho average yield
per acre of corn is now 31.5, wheat 28.1,
oats 40,4, rye 22, alfalfa 3 tons, potatoes
50. Alfalfa has taken the place of
timothy and clover.
It has been, proven that every kind

apples, cherries and apricots are plen

they never gb dry. The soil is still as

Hats Off To The Hens
Tho Chief has been t some pains to
ascertain the amount of the butter,
egg and poultry trade of the city
during the year ending with May 1st,
Tho total values brought to the city
are as follows: Eggs, 120,058.49; but
ter, 113,070,48; poultry, 914,480.77.
Of these amounts about one third
was resold by the merchants for home
consumption, and the remaining two
thirds was shipped to other points.
The butter brought to the city re
presents about one third ot the market
ed dairy product, the remaining two
thirds having; been sold in the form of
The, total poultry and dairy product
handled in the city during tho year
amounts in round nwmbers to the
value f 175,000.

of the alfalfa pasturage.
No portion of the state is so well
adapted to the cultivation of alfalfa as

At these prices, every farmer, by a
little attention to the barn yard can
make .the cow and hen easily supply
the-needsof the family in groceries
and dry goods and provide pocket
money tor the wife and children.
