these is tho establishment at favorable

Gen. Crook makes the following
report of his last campaign: I
.tnvtod May 1st with ninety-three
Apache scouts and forty-two cav
alrymen, with two month's rations
on mules, and followed the hostiles
to' tho rough Chircahuas country.
A number of mules lost their foot
ing and slipping from the trail fell
down the precipice and were killed.
The stronghold of the Chircahuas
is in the verv heart of the Sierra
Mndras. The position is ijMv
'lllUHA-l LLUlt liVildJ ('1 iHSS,

nau oeen cam pen ior nines ne-a
the head of tho Bavispe, occupying
prominent elevated peaks uilovding
a hue lookout for miles, renderuig
surprise almost impossible and
making retreat secure through
rough adjacent canyons. Captain
Crawford with his Indian scouts
early on the morning of May 15th
surprised the village of Chata,the
chief who, led the recent raid into
Arizona and New Mexico. The
tight lasted all day. The village
was wiped out, but the damage
done cannot be estimated. A jfnin
ber of dead bodies Were found, but
the indescribable roughness of the
country prevented a count being
made. The entire camp, with
stock and everything belonging to
it, was captured. ' On the d7th
they began to surrender. They
said their people were, much fright
ened by our sudden appearance m
their fatnesses, and had scattered
like quail. They asked me to re
main until they" could gather all
their bands together, when they
would go back to the reservation.
By terms of treaty my operations
were limited to the time oi" the
light, I told the Chircahuas to
gather up their women and chil
dren without delay. They an
swered they could not get them to
respond to signals, the fugitives
fearing thev luidit bo set bv'our'
Apace scouts to entrap them. They
told us they had a white boy who;
was in the village jumped by our
scouts. He had run oil with the
squaws who had escaped, andowho
had not yet been heard from. The
terms of tho treaty embarrassed
me greatly, and with rations rap
idly disappearing, there being be
tween 1)00 and 4')0 Chircahuas to
feed, ,1 was compelled to return.
AVith the Chircahuas we found
six Mexican captives- live women
and one child-taken in the Chir
cahuas early iu Ma-. They say
thev were captured near the Mex
ican Central railroad, at a place
called Carmen. They further state
that when the Chircahua: discov
ered that Apache scout s were in the
country they became greatly
alarmed, and abandoned on the
trail the MOO head of cattle they
were driving away from points in
western Chircnhua. These cattle
were afterward picked up and
driven oft by a body of Mexicans.
The Jersey is a thoroughbred, and
possesses as fully as any tho thor
oughbred's capacity to respond to
feed beyond the amount required
for the daily repair of the waste of
the boilv, and will make this extra
return as purely as the Shovthori
will make it in beef or the Ayrshire
They being thoroughbred can be
depended upon to transmit in
breeding, iu most cases, the good
qualities of one parent, and very
often the best qualities of remote
as well its immediate ancestors.
The Jersey makes more butter in
proportion to her size and feed; !
having a small body, she has just
so much less to build up in youth
and to support and repair day by
day. They come in at 20 to 2'J,
months, thus making a saving over
most other breeds of a year of food,
handling and protection.
As a rule they go dry a shorter
period than any other breed, two
months being over the average
period and many produce butter
and calves without dying off'.
The Jersey has shown herself as
well fitted to thrive in all climates
and upon all kinds of food as any
breed and some she surpasses.
Three-quarters of the highest
priced butter used in New l'ork
and New England to-day is made
from Jersey cows; it brings from 40
to 80 cents per pound, and demand
h greater than tho supply.
A LOUISIANA PICTURE.
It is evening, and the landscape
stretches ont before one in virgin
loveliness. Tho sun god, ere he
bid adieu to the ecene, kisses the
sinuous bayous and streaks their
mirrored tops with silver, brightens
up the moss that streams from the
heads and limbs of trees, and
throws one blood red gleam throu gh
vistas of evergreen dying away in
to dreaminess. . Then tfe twilight
comes on, and soon (( pale cjs-
1 I 1.1
irii f .n'
t nor.-,-, .--t'ui iu tmsuiiie iaji-
tastic shapes. Ihey create sugges-.
tions of gibbets and of corpses, of
rotten rigging mid of the tattered
sails of ships drifting to the un
known shore. How Bore could
have painted every form of gsblra'-
cy, every fancy of ghostliness,
every grimness of witchcraft, every
horror of death suggested by them!
A weird spell takes hold of you.
You imagine a deep mourning
drooping over the plains. The
woods and groves, the reeds and
bayous appear to lament some
great bereavement, some terrible
death. It seems as though this
land were vet weemnsr for Pan.
And these, or recollections of the
sylvan gods and nymphs of the an
tique world, crowd thick and fast
upon you; the great dreaminess of
the land mesmerizes vou with un- '
Jlttorable sweetness. . . , .
All told there are about 128.500.-
000 acres of land granted to railway
corporations now and for , several -
years past forfeited, but not re
stored by Act of Congress to the ,
public domain, and therefore vir
tually locked up against all settlers.
Neither the corporations nor. the'
United States can give title to any
cf theco lands'. Nor is; that ' tho
full extent of the mischief done by
Congressional neglect. All the
unsurveyed even-numbered sec
tions within the granted belts ara
also locked up against settlement.
One of the chief objects of these
original grants was to promote
tho settlement of the wilderness,
through which the roads were to
run. But, owing to tho failure of
the corporations to fill their con-,
tracts and to the long refusal of
Congress to restore the fjirfeited
lands to the public domain, the
reverse has resulted. And it is'
now a problem which demands
political solution, whether the peo
ple shall be robbed of 123,000,000
acres of land to build up these '.va
rious monopoly corporations, or
Congress shall deciafo forfeit ur6
and restoration of them to the pub
1 ic domain. As matters now stand,
the lapsed grants are not, safely,
tenantable, for no title can be given .
by any party that is not either sub
ject to an act of forfeiture or an
act of robbery.
Under this law application may
be made for BiO acres of land nat
urally devoid of timber. Only one
claim can be taken on any section.
Fi?bt years, aro required to perfect
t tie, w hich may be done ""without
residence. The first year five acres
must be broken. The second year
t lie claimant must cultivate these
live and break live more. In the
third year the first five acres must
be planted in trees and tho second
five must be cultivated. In the
fourth year tho second live acres
must bo planted, making ten acres
altogether. On the day of final
proof there must be (575 growing-
and thrifty trees on each of the
ton acres. No one can make mom
than one entry. Entry may bo
made without regard to the amount
of land owned by claimant. The
only expenses nro fees find
i commissions, which amount to lS
' on an entry of one quarter-section,
If only eighty acres are entered
the area to be planted is only fivfl
j ,tos. The Cottonwood is consid-'
'( ered a timlx r tree. The work of
j breaking and planting may. bo
done by an tgetit, but the claimant
is held responsible, for tho failures
of his agent or servant. Final
! proof must exhibit the essential
tacts as described above. It can-'
not be made before the expiration
j of the eight years, but may uot ln
' made until five years later, . . . -t
