WYOMING. UNIQUE AGRICUI1TURAI 1 CHAP ACTER OP THE STATE. aorta *r* fntA, bat Miocew with the mast goon le«d to the introduction finer snimals. IMaefc o f Its Arable Areas Way Up l n th e Air—Irrigation Necessar y to ' the Successful Growt h of Crops. ~C \T \ffTTOMING though one of \ /\ / th e Bocky Mountain V Y States, is much less rug­ ged than its neighbors, Colorado and Montana. Its mountain ranges are lew, broken down at many points, and widely separated, -with < broad park-like plains ftnd valleys be­ tween them. About twenty years ago these valleys with their abundant wild grasses and many sparkling streams first attracted tho stockmen, and they are to-day just commencing to attract tho farmer. As an agricultural State, says the New York Sun, Wyoming is unique in tho Union. Its arable areas have an average altitudo greator than that of any of our other States.' Thus in Southern \Wyoming a large part of tho best lands lie at an elevation varying between 6000 and 8000 feet, whilo the lowest portions, whioh are in the north, betweon tho Platte Eiver and the northern boundary, tho Big Horn Mountains and tho Blaok Hills, aro between 3000 nnd 5500 feet high. These lower lands produce well all the «emi-hardy vegetables and fruits, but, 4is the altitudo increasos, the varieties of possible products grow less, till, at an elevation of 7500 or 8000 feet, hay only does well. The soil, generally, is a sandy loam, enriched in the valleys by vegetable decomposition, and on tho uplands mixed with gravel and a large propor­ tion of clay. In somo districts it is a heavy clay loam, approaching what is commonly called \gumbo.\ In others, as along tho base of the Black Hills, on cither side of tho Big Horn Moun­ tains, and in a few other sections, there is a decided gypsum soil, red or gray, according to tho proportion of irou it contains. Xo analysis of these soils has yet been made, hut by com­ paring them with similar soils from Colorado they aro found to bo excel­ lent, and capable with moisture of bearing very good crops. Over the anil do areas the ra'nfnll averages twelve inches, ft is heawest in spring nud hummer, though a month has never been known t<> without any precipitations whate\or On account of extremely dry iur and n lnig-' percentage of clour days, mois­ ture is evaporated almost as hoon as it falls. Thus nothing can bo success­ fully grown without irrigation, except in u few favored places, where the proximity of high mountains causes unusual condensation, orinsomo of tho lower northeastern valleys, whoso climates resemlilo that of Nobraska. Among the mountains tho rainfall is often as great as thirty inches annually, and is very evonly distributed throughout the year. Hence the •mouctain rivers never run dry, and .can be depended upon for a Bteady water supply. Of a total area for tho State of o2,448,000 acres, about 10,000,000 acres are callable .of irrigation. This tract, greater than the combined areas of Delaware, New Jersey and Con­ necticut, is divided naturally into four nearly equal divisions, watered by the four largest rivers of tho State, the North Platte, the Powder, tho Big Horn and the Green. The southwestern or Platte division lias so high an elevation that almost no agriculture has yet been attempted thore. Tho Powder or northern di­ vision, varying between 3500 and 5500 feet in height, and watered by streams ilowiug from the snows of tho Big Horn Mountains, is tho section where farming hus made most progress.. Hero tho climate is much milder •Corn and most of the crops grown in Nobraska do well. This is the only part of Wyoming whoro pig raising has gained n foothold. The Big Horn and Green River vulleys aro comparatively undeveloped, though several long ditches have been storted and many more planned. Hay is a chief crop in Wyoming. Wheat and other cereals aro very im­ portant , of those more are raised every year, m somo instances they , have made extraordinary yields. Po­ tatoes aro of a very good quality, and a promising industry is that of raising augur beets. Tho chmato and soil are very favorable to their growth, and thoy produeo an unusual percentage of starch and sugar. It is, however, truo that AVyoniing's agricultural pro- gross has been slow. There has hitherto been invested 810,000,000 in irrigat­ ing ditches, with a length of about 3000 miles, and commanding 2,000,000 acres of the best lands in the - State. Theso ditches wero most of them planned and started whilo tho cattle business was at its height. When it •collapsed, in 1885, a largo proportion had to bo abandoned from want of cap­ ital. Again, many miles of ditching were built by stockmon, not for irriga­ tion, but to get titles to pasturo lands. Others were built to get control of water rights, and with no intention of immediate use. Thus of all the land under ditches at the present time, only about ten per cent, can be irrigated, and only one per cent, is actively cul­ tivated By far the greater part of Wyoming is upland that can never bo reached by irrigation, and must always remain a pastoral and stock-raising country. There are nearly 40,000,000 acres of such lands in tho State. These, with grassy forest areas of 15,000,000 acres, aro supplied plentifully with water for stock. Of the 100 or more native grasses, th6 most valuable aro timothy, bine stem and bent grass. These grow on tho borders of streams and in damp mountain valleys. The best upland kinds ore the \buffalo \red bent,''' \Juno\ and \bunch.\ All of them euro naturally as they stond, nnd fur­ nish good winter foddor, Shoop raising is now ono of tho most profitable businesses. It was intro- dncod at about tho timo of the decline in the cattle business. It is said that in many instances' as much as 100 por cent, has been cleared on capital thus invested. Horse breeding, too, prom­ ises much in tho future. Wyoming horses are remarkable for their great lung development and capacity for en­ durance. A s yet only the commoner ol Facto Aboit Castor OH. The' lovers of castor oil—snd coarse they are numerous—will, per haps, be interested in a lengthy and able communication to the State De partment from United States Consul Merrill, of Calcutta, about the outiva- tion and production of that palatable article of diet in India. Whoever sup­ poses that that heftt\hen country, India, does not contribute to the happiness of mankind is not awaro o( the fact that she produces and dis­ tributes over the world moro than 3,000,000 gallons of castor oil por annum. According to Consul-General Merrill the exportation of castor oil, from India last year wero 3,273,980 gallons, and in tho preceding year 3,000,000 gallons. Thousands of people aro employed in this delightful and health producing enterprise, and thousands of acres of land are annually planted and tilled in cultivation of the castor bean from which tho oil is produced. Thero are two forms of the plant from which the castor bean is procured, says Consul Merrill. One of these is a perennial growth in tho form of a tall bush, or almost tree, which is grown us a hedge plant to afford' shade around fields in which more delicate crops are hoing culti­ vated. This yields a larger seed and an abundance of inferior oil. The best oil is mado from an annual plant which produces small seed which is planted in rows, somothing as corn is planted in this country. In the fourth or fifth month after the Bowing the flowering occurs, and in tho sixth month the capsules are formed and tho pick, which begins in the soventh month, terminates with tho ninth, when tho cattle eat off what leaves re­ main, and the stems are cut for fuel. The BCed spots are gathered by hand, and after being dried the beans aro beaten out with a wooden mallet. The beans aro roasted or boiled, and after being dried are pounded in a mortar, soaked in water and ground into meal, after which the oil is extracted by pressure combiued with heat. Tho portion of tho bean remaining after all the oil that can be extracted by pressure has been removed is utilized in tho manufacture of gas, and in other cases is mi<ced with bone meal and used as a fertilizer Consul Mer­ rill closes his interesting statement ou castor ml by remarking that it is fre­ quently used for dressing tanned hides and skins, as it repels rats and other vermin.—St. Louis Star-Sayings. • UL-, Cruel Sport in Chile. Tho National pastime of Chilois tho \barro which is played by the huas- ous, or Chilean horsemen, who aro splendid riders. At every wayside drinking shop there is a range of posts supporting a long rail, to which tho horses aro tethered. Whenever u few huascos meet a wager for drinks is sure to bo put up. Then sides are chosen, and the leaders first take their places on horseback side by side, each with his horse's chest closo up to tho bar. The others mount and range themselves on each side in the sauio position. Then the gamo bogiua.

That God does lead His peoplo is a truth which is abundantly established by the Bible and oanarmod by the experience of thousands of Ood's psopla in all ages o t tho world. But then ar« myMertoe oonneoted with God'i loadings ot His people, in many instance*, which are too profound for thom to unravol, and especially so during tho time that thej an being led. Sometimes the mystery hoi reference to tho path In, whioh tho bellovorii led. Tho paths aro so dlfforoot from whtv ono would naturally choose. Thoy are dlreot ly oontrary to what human sagacity and pru donee would oleot to walk in. They appear U bo bosot with difficulties that aro entire!) nsedles3 to encounter.

Wi uttorly fail to soo. at tho tlma, any good roa sou why wo should bo led along such strange uninviting unpromising and apparently do struotivo ways. Thoy aro so radically at va rianoo with our conceptions of right, ot roa son, of prudenco, of satoty, of poraonal gooi and even of duty, that wo are strongly tomptoi at times to robol against procoodiug. W o an tomptod to question whothor wo aro boin) truly lod of God in suoh way! Wo havo found no dlflloulty in acoapl lng tho abstract truth that Goi does leud His pooplo.

An yet, oftor passing through tho most disagree eblo parts of the way and coming out into th light again, wo And that God did indeed loa us. With all of our short-slghtednoss wo oa see that the path ln whioh wo were led wa tho best for us. Our experiences thorol wero worth more to us and to others throug us than treasures of gold.

SUNDAY SCHOOL HBSONIOB SUNDAY , JULY 23. •Paul at Corinth,\ Acts Qolden lext : ICor. Commentary. .xviii., 1., 13 . 1-11. 1. \After those things Paul departed from atbons and camo to Corinth. His testi­ mony was not in vain at Athens, for Bomo olnve unto him and believed. See prerlous verse. Ho did not expect that all the seed would fall on good soil; neither aro wo so taught. But ho did know that God's word would accomplish His pleasure sad not re­ turn void, and that his labor was not in vata In tho Lord (Isn. lv., 11 ; I Cor. xv., 68). His aim was \b y all means to save soma\ ( I Cor. Ix., 22) , nnd this ho accomplished. Tho churoh of Christ Is made up of an oloct num­ ber out of all nations, given unto Him out of this world (Bov. v , 9 s Eph. i., I; Johnxvli., 6), nnd t o this end wo, llko Paul, should seek to get tho gospel everywhere. 2. \An d found a oertain Jew named Aqulla, bora in Pontus, lately como from Italy with his wife Prtactlla (becauso that Claudius had oommandod all Jews to do- part from Borne), and came unto thom.\ Wo cannot help remarking that after 1800 yours tho Jews nrostttl commanded to do- part from cities and oountrlos on tho face ol the onrth. It is the same sad old story as ln the days of Paul. It Is tho fulflllmont ol words spoken through Moses over SOOOyoars ago. See Dout. xxviil., G3-C8. But if the curso has como so literally nnd so fully the blessing shall also come, and ' 'the days ol tholr mourning shall bo ended,\ \for He that scattered Israel will gather him,\ and tho time it even now at hand (Isa. be , 20,21, Jor. xxxi., 10 ; Ezek. xxxvil., 21, 22). 3. \An d because ho was of the samo craft he abodo with thom and wrought, for by tholr occupation thoy were tentmakors. Whilo Paul belloved and taught that they who preach tho Gospol should live of tho Gospel ( I Cor ix., 14), ho also took ploaaure In working at his trndo thnt he might min- Istor to his own necessities and glvo tho Gospol freoly (Acts xx., 34 ; I Cor. iv., 11,12; I Thess. li., 0; I I Thess. ill., 8) . It is a great advantage under somo circumstances to bo ablo to do this now and thus stop the mouths of those who say of tho proaohor, \It is his business ; ho makes a good thing of It\ I am glad that I had throe yoars' ex­ perience of mlnlstorlng to my necessities by working soven hours a day, that I might trooly glvo all tho rest of my timo to dis­ tinctively rollglous work. 4. \And ho reasoned in tho synagogue overy Sabbath and porsuadod tho Jews and the Grooks.\ He doubtless did as at Thossal- onicn and roasonod out of tho Scriptures, opening nnd nlloging thnt Christ must needs have sufforod and risen again from tho doad, and thatthls Jesus is tho Christ (chapter xvll., 2, 3) . From his conversion his ono story was thnt Josus Is tho Christ, tho Son of God (ohnp- tor ix., 20-22) . 5. \And when Silos nnd Tlmothous woro como from Macedonia, Paul was prossod hi the spirit and testified to tho Jews thnt Jcsu3 Is tho Christ.\ Tho R.

An extraordinary accident is re­ ported from Hyderabad, India. The Nizam's spocinl train, when going at a considerable speed, ran into a troop of his Highness's elephants, which ap- poar to havo been walking along the lino. There were about ten elephants in all, proceeding to Manukota. How many of these wero actually on tho lino at tho time of tho accident is not known. Tho special ran into the herd between Kasatnudrnm and Manukota stations. Ono of the finest animals was knocked over, pushed in front of tho engino for a distance of fifty to ono hundred yards and killed. Another fine olophant was injured, and had a tusk broken. Tho mahout of the ani­ mal was killed, and ono or two other , persons seriously injured. Most fortu­ nately tho train was being drawn by an unusually heavy engine, one of a typo recontly put on tho lino. The scene of the accident is about 120 miles from Hyderabad, on the lino to Bezwada. —Now Tork Post. \Go jo messengers of God ; Like the beams of morning lly ; Take tho wondor worltlng rod: Wuvo tho banner cross on high.\ —N E.

TUE VERDICT OF SCIENCE. Alcohol is an artificial product obtained by formeutntion, nnd is never found in a simple state, It is a poison in both its nature nnd its offocls, ft is prououncod such b y tho highest authorities, and proved to bo such by tho test of chomlstry us well ns physiol­ ogy. Alcohol unndultoratod i3 a pure poison, and though takon into the system Inadiluted state, without nt first apparently any injuri­ ous effects, it is still a poison, and does tho work of n poisonous agent. The first nnrcotlc symptom produced on the system by alcohol is that of incipiont paralysis. Tho tlush which may bo obsorvod on the faco is caused by tho paralysis of tho delioatoly constructed sympathetic nerves. In courso o f timo thoy become thoroughly and oomplctoly paralyzed, and then tho bloom on tho oheek dovolops into tho inovitnblo blotoh on tho nose. When alcohol Is token into tho systom, tho pulse throbs quicker for n timo, the oyo spnrklc3 with flame, and for a short timo more than usual activity is manlfost, after whioh succeed collapse und prostration. It is thus that ail poisons act , and the vory symptoms that men oonsidor a test of tho good thoy derive from alcohol aro in reality tho undoubtod harblngera ot gravo and Im­ minent dangor. But of all tho ovil oftoots of this deadly poison, thero Is ono far more romnrkablo and doplorablo than all the rest, and that is tho direct assault alcohol nmkos on the brain and mental faculties. Tho moment it is taken into the systom, it makes immediately for tho blood, and hurries oft at once to tho brain. Here it attnoks, first of all, tho high­ est functions, for tho higher tho function the moro delicnto and susceptible is tho brain matter involved, and tho more sensitive to injury. Hence, tho moral and spiritual functions, Buch as roveronoo for God, aspira­ tion, self-denial, purity and pationoo, becomo tho first victims of this insidious foo ; while the coarser and more animal functions, hav­ ing thus for n time gained control of tho victim, loave him, as he but too often proves himself to be, a brute and no man. It Is no wonder, therefore, that w o have exhibltod t o us, from time to time, suoh convincing ex ­ amples of this truth, and that we soo mon, who, in sobriety, aro kind and affeotionato, guilty, undor the influence of drink, o f orimos tho most brutal, appalling and cold­ blooded, which it Is within the ingenuity of man to dovise.—Dr. E.

WANTED LIVE AGENTS 1 HART'S IMPROVED Hair Crimper and Waver. T HR only crimper in the market which crimps and waves the hair, and is controlled by our company. The fashion of crimping the hair is all the rage, and becoming more popular every day. For the past six months our com­ pany have manufactured over 500,000 of these crimpers, and not over one-third of the towns have been reached, as they have been bandied by the largest hard­ ware trade only. Now we are putting them in the hands of agents only who are making large profits from the sale of the goods, we prefer ladies to handle the agency for the goods, as they can show them up to much better advantage. The crimpers are nickel plated, and put up in boxes li dor. in a box. Samples will be sent on receipt of 35 cents to pay the postage and first cost of the crimper* when we will forward the prices and dis­ count to agents, towns, county or state given to parties who will guarantee to take a certain number of crimpers to start on. . .
