Many en route to this country nnd many
who do not think of going , have formed an
idea that the land to bo thrown open for set
tlement April 22 is a good share of the whole
Indian territory whereas it is only ono
twenty-fifth part of it. The reader must remember -
member that fully one-half of the Indian
territory is occupied by the live civilized
tribes , viz. : Chorokecs 22,000 , owning 5.000-
000 acres ; Creeks 15.000 , owning 2,215,000
ncres ; Choctaws 18,000 , owning 0,080,000

the Cherokee outlet lauds ( a strip along
Kansas ) 5,000,000 acres , and the following
wild tribes I give their population and
ncreago-Choyonnos and Arapahoes 3,717 ,
owning 1,250,000 acres ; Wichltas 213 , owning
403,000 acres , and the Klowas , Comanchcs

The influx of peopleto this Is certainly
wonderful , und a great boon to the four cato-
wuys to this region viz. . Wichita , Welling
ton , Arkansas City and Winflold , and these
. points are enjoying a irood trade on account
of it. Tlio average home-seeker , however ,
in very manv cases ( nnd I believe fully fifty

"well lot these who want to , go ana contest
and contend for a quarter of that land , as for
my part I will not attempt to secure my

dcncoof THE lJr.p. . | Since the passage by
.ho legislature of the herd law bill thord has
been In Sioux county , to use an expression of
some local notoriety , "ono continual round of
ilcasuro. " A few useless politicians and
'bonier ' runians" only take the matter badly.
N'ono of the cattlemen appear to bo in any
lurry to leave. These who own their lands
arc Arranging to fence pastures nnd others
Will herd their stock. Ono of' the largest
itock owners In the county Is building rlargo
aarn. The | > ooror settlers are Jubilant over
prospect of raising a crop without hav
ing U destroyed by "free range" stock.
There Is a nearly universal feeling thatSIoux
county is on the eve of great prosperity ,
( juito n largo Immigration to our county has
set in curly this spring , and the feeling that
the present season Is to be one of largo de
velopment Is augmented by that fact.
Of the live counties "boyotnl the sand
lillls , " that for the past four years have been
marching on to greatness , Sioux county Is
the farthest west , being the northwest
county of the state , and contains a largo
amount of government land of tine quality.
The country is thirty miles across from cast
to west nnd extends about seventy miles
from north to south.
The surface of Sioux county U properly
termed undulating. In particular places
Lhero are extensive Hat valleys and tublo
lauds , and In others lotty hills , abrupt preci
pices or rocky canons. Yet there is a very
small portion of the country that docs not lie
well for comfortable cultivation. Even the
greatest of the hills generally nrlto by easy
gradations and are susceptible of cultivation
to their very-tops.
The county is drained by a number of flno
streams , the principal ones being the NIo-
braro , or Hunnlng Water river , the White
river and Hot creek. These and their tribu
taries and tributaries of the Cheyenne and
Platte rivers are beautiful streams of
clear , cold , soft water. In the ex
treme northwest portion of the county
Is a small tract probably composed of marl
and there are n lew springs the water from
which Is strongly impregnated with disa
greeable salts. Aside from these nil the
streams in Sioux county contain water excel
lent nnd hcaK-hful for drinking purposes-
springs and streams as naturally nrlso In a
sandstone formation uud llow through a fer-
The soil of Sioux county Is a black sandy
loam. It is alluvial nnd what is teemed the
Loess deposit In sclcntlilo classification. The
sand nnd clay and vegetable mould are not
altogether equally distributed throughout the
entire extent of the county. In the south
ern portion thcro are places where there is
a largo admixture of satds. ) It is
not n barren country , but ono covered
with the llncst and most luxuriant grasses
and having a quick soil , and where it has
been cultivated producing satisfactory re
sults. Again , in tbo northern part of the
county are places whara the soil has seem
ingly too much clay and too little sand nnd is
sunbaked and hard. Generally speaking ,
however , the soil of Sioux county is a blaclc
sandy Just right for the production of or
ganic life. The statement will answer for
the great bulk of all the lands in the county.
The cllmato of Sioux county Is Influenced
L > y various conditions , some of which may
briefly bo named. It is in latitude 42 toIII
north , the same as that of Massachusetts
and southern Oregon. It Is something more
than half way across the continent from caste
: o west. Its altitude is between 3,500 and
5,500 feet above the sea. The
Drevaillng wind is from the southwest.
It is warmer hero than lu the same latitude
"tinner cast , but not so warm us in the same
latitude farther west for all obvious reasons.
Its altitude operates to give it a dry bracing
Umosphero and ulbo permits us to catch a
jreath of the Pacific breezes that fan tlio
other side of the Uockics mingled with out-
own dry , bracing mountain winds. The
rainy months in this section are April , May ,
Juno and July. In the winter season there-
is generally an abundance of snow , which
unounts to the same thhiK as rains. August ,
September , October nnd November bring us
Uut few showers. Tno writer has boon
Familiar with the country since and including
Lho season of 1SS4 , and records his exper
ience. During the early summer months
there has been every season so fur in our
lilstory an abundance of ram needful for the
production of crops suitable to the lutltudo
namely , corn , grain and vegetables. This
has been followed by a dry full lu which to
gather what had been planted and sown and
vlclded its many fold. Ho who puts his
hand to the plow and cultivates the soil of
Sioux county with proper oaro may bo as
reasonably sure of a good harvest as the
farmer in any other favored spot in the
country. Ho may also bo confident of good
weather in which to gather the results of his
toll , and of healthful und generally pleasant
weather all the year.
Experience has demonstrated that the
soil und climate of this section are particu
larly well adapted to the production of spring
wheat. The record in regard to wlioat-
ruising is remarkable both as to the amount
and quality produced. It is expected that
this will bo the great monoy-mukingindustry
of the near future.
Harrison is the only village in Stoux
county , and is finely located on u broad table
land on the Fremont , Elkhorn & Missouri
Vulloy railroad. It la the county scat , and a
handsome ? 10,000 crick court house is in
process of construction and nearly com
pleted. It has a good school house , a $2,000
Methodist Episcopal elm re n building and the
customary business enterprises. Within
twciity-livo to thirty miles of Harrison
risen are thousands of ncres of
excellent government land subject to
entry under the pro-emotion , timber cul
ture and homestead , acts. , The passage of the
law rcsraining slock from running at largo
to destroy the props of the settlers ana the
early arrival of largo numbers of eager
homoscokors , bringing trows of many others
to follow , warrant the assertion that the
present season will bo ono of great develop
ment in Harrison and Sioux county. The
near prospect of seeing these broad and for-
tilu but wild prairies changed into prosper
ous nnd cultivated farms is naturally pleas
urable to all who have a permanent interest
In the country.

The legal title still remains in the United

family of English birth , his brother ,
Edwin Chndwick , being the noted sani
tary philosopher of England. Ho is
sixty-three years of ago , although hia
appearance indicates him to bo less
than fifty. I'orhnps his physique has
boon preserved by his devotion to the
national game , for few of its admirers
are moro assiduous than ho in attend
ance. In his early days Mr. Chadwick
was a player. As early us 1847 , when
the game was in its infancy , he covered
the position of short stop in an amateur
nine in the wilds of Now Jersey now
Since Iho ngo of thirteen Mr.
Chudwick has resided in Brook
lyn .and is an honored mem
ber of the distinguished society of
Old Brooklynitos. In journalism ho
has attained eminent distinction by
thirty-two years of industrious and mer
itorious work on a score of daily , weekly
and monthly publications , and for many
years ho has compiled books of refer
ence and guides for ball players. From
1857 to 18S8 Mr. Chadwick made the
Clipper the base ball authority , and his
work was the loading feature of that
paper. Ho is now ono of the editors of
the Outing Mngazinc.and still furnishes
articles to several leading base ball
Nothing has done moro to advance
the game of base ball in popular favor
thun the fact that it is conducted hon
estly on honest principles. That Mr.
Chtidwickthroughout his long career ,
has over boon n champion of profes
sional probity in every detail of the
game every person will admit who has
rend his writings will admit , and it is
largely duo to to the dignity and forcefulness -
fulness of his pen that the American
public to-Vlay are permitted to enjoy tlio
most healthful of recreations and the
most fascinating of all outdoor sports.
I cheerfully recommend Red Clover
Tonic to these suffering from troubles
of the stomach and liver. I am now on
my second bottle , and it makes mo feel
like a now man. C. M. ConnorNashua ,

The New York city board of education
has decided that no married woman
shall be eligible to election as teacher ,
except by unanimous vote.
Continental swindlers are palmincr off
upon British agriculturists great bar
gains in clover seed that has boon
treated with sulphur fumes to give it a
bright and how look , but that is really
old and worthless.
