A few of the many advantages of
winter pools in the Territory are
.veil stated by tin- Caldwell IW. in
:he Cbtluwang lwngimg
The greatest-advantage in- licki-
ng cattle on the spuci (Ted range
keeping the-m fronn scattering all
)ver (ho entire Indian Territory
'hereby avoiding tire- Ml in us and
justly lwxury of a g&r.wiU round-up
Wee the round-up of last spring.
Another is the saving of about one-
'lhlftne cost of hands by a redue-
ion frr numbers.. A round-up of a

and all the stock thnt are now urn
niug on that range be eani d
through the winter with but slight-
if any loss if pooled.
It is jt well known hs:t that tw.v
ly mon properly placed? on the out
side of a range will hold 10000
cattle better and more successfully
than thirty-five will when cut up
into ten bunches of 1000 head each.
A fire guard around a range to ac-
commodate 10000 head of cattle
would not cost over $200 while ten
ranges for 1000 head each would
cost not less than $500 and then
not be as safe as the larger range.
There is an abundance of grass and
water and it is naturally a distinct
range and should be worked as
such. There are at present about
10000 head of cattle on this range
divided up into bunches of from
S()() to .1000 and if kept separate
will require about forty mn while
if pooled it will take less than twenty.
Winter pools if successfully man-
aged will be a big item in tliedwap
growing and management of stock
in this part of the country and
should be entered into wherever
the ranges will admit.
INDIANS ON THE BORDER
-) u u
; t - i
We take from the cnlunms of the
Arkansas City Oeinoen.t a paper
which is always replete with Indian
news the following items:
Prof. l H. Hutchison industrial
teacher at the f'heyenne Agency
who has been visiting "pa and nuf
and his lady love in this eity for
several weeks past started on his
return tor the Agency last Sunday
morning. Frank m scavcofy more
than a boy in years but is a full
grown man in his professional work
as is evidenced by hisheing'relflined
in his position another yar.
Last week was unusuaily lively
for the "noble reds." On Thursday
and Friday Sehilfbauer Pros load-
ed about ninety wagons for the
Cheyennes and Araahoes. The
(lovornment'lias just furnished the
above n:ued tribes with a complete
outfit. the wagows being of the
Caldwell' make. The Cheyennes and
A ra pa hoes a few years since were
as wild and hostile as any Indians
on the plains but under the present
management they are rapidly adopt-
ing the customs of civilization.
' Mr. Charles Sehifrbawer returned
last Saturday from Nebraska where
he had been for several days on
business completing the contract
for the (lovermnent building for the
Otoe and Missouri-Iowa Indians.
The above named tribes- have re-
quested the Government to remove
them to the Indian Territory where
they can have a permanent home.
The site selected lor their Agency is
situated on Red Hock river about
oo miiessouin oi tnis place.
Mr. YV". A. Katon of the Cheyenne
TuAXSPiMrrBit is making the ijkst
paper published in the Indian Ter-
ritory. When Mr. Katon went to
Cheyenne Ag-.-ncy a little over two
years ago he wav but a typo had
no capital no support whatever but
he finally secured a circulation
among the eattle nun which of
course would induce tla merchants
of our border trnviw to advertise
their business in the Tuaxspoktkh
hoping: thereby to secure the patron-
age of'them ; and that was encour-
aging to hiin. Now he has a circu-
lation and advertising list equal to
any pajer published m the States.
The Tha.nmvhtkh is a ton-page pa-
per and is brim full of Indian stock
and general news'Vvciy Usiic and
