Chicago Commercial Advertiser (Newspaper) - May 16, 1878, Chicago, Illinois The commercial advertiser. The Western Empire. What our Western editor has to say of Northwestern Kansas. Kotos of a weak in Tho upper Solo. Mon Valley heavy Aldo of immigration remarkable a notarial county. Iii Paras and Farmers water Stone and Timber Supply climate Topography soil and grasses rare inducements to settlement a Day a Phillipsburg. With the representative men of the town and county town and county prospects. Kansas la in its glory. The tide of Prosperity flows in upon the land with steady increasing volume. For three successive years the crops have been enormous. Ceres has presided Over Bountiful Grain held Pomona has held Benignant reign Over Orchard and Garden pales has led the herds and flocks to abundant increase. While the Kansas people have been growing opulent by the development of native resource a steady and increasing Stream of wealth has poured in from without. One Hundred thousand immigrants made new Homes in the state last year and this year the number will be doubled. They Are not Idle visionary wanderers who have drifted tills Way with the Gene ral Westward movement they have come hither under no sudden impulse hut Are Strong practical working men who bring not Only their wealth of muscle and brain but for the most part a fair Stock of worldly goods. They come from All lands and Are the sort of people to found an Empire. What a vast augmentation of mental moral and material wealth comes of this mighty immigration. In numbers Aud character the inflowing population of 1878, would Start a Noble new state of itself. Added to the 700,000 people already Here it will give to Kansas close to a million souls by the Glrst of january 1879 and make her the ranking new state in wealth and population. The readers of the commercial advertiser Are not strangers to the resources of this splendid Young Commonwealth. Its native and artificial resources have been often and thoroughly discussed in these columns for the last two years. A full half million copies of these Kansas letters have been sent by Kansas people Over the English Reading world in a Little More than a Twelvemonth. Evidences of the Strong impulse they have Given to immigration Are multiplying upon every hand. Our readers will remember with some interest the general letter i gave last fall upon the Solomon Valley. Supplementary to that i give herewith a Brief sketch of Phillips county which is drained by the a North Fork Quot of the Solomon and is one of the richest and most attractive portions of the stale. It is great in territory having an area of 900 Square Miles or 576,000 acres. Its admirable location la one of the chief attractions of the county. It is in the North tier of coun ties bordering on Nebraska and 240 Miles West of the Missouri River. It is clearly within the great agricultural Belt and yet so close upon the vast Western cattle Range that every possible advantage of mixed husbandry is offered. A mean Altitude of 2,800 feet gives a pure and stimulating atmosphere with the Best resources of husbandry. The country that can raise prime wheat Corn Oats Barley Rye Aud the whole list of vegetables known to Tho temperate latitudes in addition to sheep and cattle and has a climate As fresh Aud healthful As the Heights of the sierras is a Royal land for the Homes of men. Here 2,500 to 3,000 feet above the sea is no atmospheric humidity no malarial influence not a Pond or Pool of stagnant water nor Long seasons of rain or Snow but one of the Mildest Healthiest and loveliest climates upon the Green Earth. They have rainfall and so too some Snow fall but the storms Are nearly All electrical of Short duration and always followed by Bright fair weather. Know rarely lies Over a week Aud the heaviest rain storm will not interfere with held work for More than Twenty four hours. What glorious Summers and fair Winters they have in this upper Solomon country a humid sultry summer night or three successive Duck Winter Days were never known on the upper Solomon or Republican Rivers. The climate comes very near to perfection. Sick people and grave Yards Are about a was scarce As hens this whole Region is the finest Refuge for consumptive asthmatics and dyspeptic. To come Here with any of these ailments is to be cured if the patient be not far gone la decline. Phillips county is full of material resource. Every Section in the county is provided with splendid deposits of magnesia Limestone of the finest Quality easily quarried soft enough to yield to the saw or chisel and when exposed to the Light and air hardening to perpetual endurance. This elegant material is going into every form of building and is a Fortune to the county. The Waters Are pure As the Pearly streams and Springs of the mountains. They come from hidden Rocky resources in Clear fountains and flow from the great a Divide Quot northward to the Republican and southward to the Solomon by forty permanent running streams. I was never More surprised than in the character and number of the water courses of this county. The Solomon is in the South the Prairie dog Fork of the Republican in the North both with their dozen tributaries and in the Centre Are the Clear rapid Waters of Deer Crook and its score of Spring Brook branches. Wells Are easily made near streams at 12 to 25 feet and on the divides at 40 to 90 feet ready for use at 28 to 40 cents per foot. Water Power is abundant on the Solomon River Prairie dog and Deer creeks. Timber is found in moderate Quantity on All the running streams and will furnish All the fuel needed by the settlers till the hundreds of artificial Groves Are Large enough to Supply the permanent wants of the county. The Ruffalo Grasser Are Universal. They Are probably the most nutritious and valuable grazing grasses in Tho world. On these native pastures grazing is perpetual. The Winter is no obstruction to cattle Ani sheep raising for both herds and flocks subsist and even fatten upon the Winter ranges. The Short grass dries up before the september showers and october frosts and retains its virtue through All the Winter. The North and rougher half of Phillips county is a very Paradise for shepherds the Hills and tables giving splendid Range for summer and the ravines canons and valleys affording equally Good Range and shelter in Winter. Cattle will make 40 per cent to the breeder and Grazer and sheep 35 per cent anywhere in the county. The North half of the county should Graze 25.000 sheep and the county at Large 25,-000 cattle. These added to Hrair growing would make Phillips county a land of opulent Farmers. Only 30,000 acres or one eighteenth of the land in the county was in cultivation last year. About 100.000 bushels of Spring wheat and 50, too bushels of Winter wheat were grown last year. This year at least 50,000 acres Are in cultivation and the wheat crop will be doubled. Nearly 400,000 bushels of Corn were grown last year and this year the crop promises to run up to 600,-000 bushels. They used to think this country was too near the Clouds to grow Cern but there were scores of men who grew 50 bushels of Corn per acre on the Uplands last year in this county. A crop review will give some idea of Grain growing out Here under the drawbacks of very superficial culture. G. W. Young the county treasurer raised 600 bushels of Corn from to acres in the Prairie dog Bottoms. Hon. John Rissell raised 237 j bushels of a red May Quot wheat last year on ills Upland farm near Phillipsburg from eight bushels of seed. He grew 600 bushels of Spring wheat which gave an average of 19 bushels per acre and his Winter wheat gave a yield of 37 j bushels per acres. Charles Finch raised to bushels of Oats per acre on his table lands Aud Samuel Plottier also near Phillipsburg produced 400 bushels of wheat from twelve acres of second Bottoms. We. Mall vane harvested 21 bushels of Spring wheat per acre and w. F. Woodward 21 bushels of Spring wheat from High lands near Phillipsburg last year. Or. J. M. Gun grew 50 bushels of Rye per acre and Many others report 30 to 55 bushels of Barley per acre. Farming is made easy in this country by favouring seasons. It is not a hard task for one Man and a single team to cultivate 120 acres of wheat Corn and other grains Aud produce therefrom 2,000 to 3,000 bushels of Grain. Fall and Spring wheat do equally Well Aud seeding May be begun la september and carried on with Only two months intermission till the 20th of april. Blowing often continues through All the Winter months. The soil is dry deep and porous Lively and easily handled dark and Rich As a muck bed and produced wonderfully. The children of the men who cultivate these lauds today will not live Long enough to see them exhausted by constant cultivation. On the surface is the dark vegetable Mould 15 to 30 inches deep below is a Clay Loam full of sediment of Lime and underlying All the magnesia Limestone. Every wheat grower knows that such a soil leads the world in the growth of his favorite Grain. Four Hundred thousand acres of this Beautiful county Are adapted to the plow and will be turned to cultivated Fields within a decade. Immigration is enormous. To the 5,000 people who Are in the county to Day at least 3,000 More will be added in a Twelvemonth. They have a fashion for blowing out Here in Western Kansas and the new settlers will keep on turning Over the native Sod till not half enough is left for the sheep and cattle. The Grain held is a Good thing for the new settler who has very Little Means but by and by when he is Abler he will find that his wheat Fields have lost him the native grasses the grandest resource of his Kansas estate. Phillips county has the same general topographical features As most of Northwestern Kansas. Fifteen per cent of the whole county is Bottoms 50 per cent rolling Prairie 29 per cent table land and 15 per cent broken Buffy country just suited to grazing. The valleys Are unexcelled for native charms and for the depth and wealth of the soil. The tables command extended and inspiring views of the lower country and Are among the most valuable farming lands in Kansas. The rolling Prairies Are also Superior farming land. Indeed there is not in acre of inferior soil in the county. The rough est lauds away toward the Republican River would make pet mum farms Down in new England or Pennsylvania. Here the valleys Are first sought and settled by the Pioneer on account of Wood and fanning water. Next the neighbouring rolling Prairies then the elevated Plains or Mesa s where the soil is deep and Rich and the depth of the Wells is the Only drawback. But when it is remembered that an 80 or too foot Well May be completed at a Cost of $30 or $40 and the Supply of purest water is inexhaustible and these Plains Are every Whit As smooth fair and Rich As the a grand Prairie Quot of Central Illinois and that the finest wheat farms one or ten Miles in extent May be opened Here wheat held rivalling those of the red River of the North it is easy to see How readily these great plateaus Are absorbed by the new Comers. What a grand inviting country is this where Graceful winding River and Valley and Woodland Are charmingly set off against the grand Bluff ranges the limitless waving Prairie swells and the grand Plains or plateaus i came up the Beautiful Solomon in the glorious dreamy Days of last september when Phillips county was enveloped in the soft Blue Haze of the Indian summer and the Mucka Riss was singing his Sweet song in the great Cornfields. I Saki to myself a what a charming life these pioneers must Lead up Here where the Sun shines 350 Days of the Radiant year and the ratified air gives a sense of exploration to every form of now in these Lovely May Days when the wheat is breast High and the grass is waving in the West winds like the Waves of the sea and Tho grangers Are already cultivating their Corn this whole upper Solo on country looks As fair and inviting As the fabled Eden. I do nol wonder that the hundreds of new Comers who Are Drifting up Here with every new Moon Are charmed with the Prospect. This is a land to be proud of and the Man is fortunate indeed who makes a life Home and plants a roof tree under these Bright skies. The lands Are cheap enough for anybody. If the Reader should a hurry up he May still find homesteads of value within the county. If he Walt till july or August he will probably be compelled to go to Norton or Decatur counties. They Settle a whole township up in a month now. It seems As of the whole Eastern country were pouring out its surplus population into the trans Missouri country. Besides the government lands there Are hundreds of Homestead and Preemption claims of Igo acres in the Market at $250 to $500. These claims Are generally considerably improved Ami offer capital Opportunity to men of Small Means to go at once into Active and self sustaining farming. Better improved deeded lands Are Worth $5 to $12 per acre. There is no end of profitable investment in wild lands farms and a claims Quot for a full foul Iii of the Pioneer Farmers Are ready to sell and go further West. The social conditions Are for the most part a compliment to the country and would be to any country. Of the 5,500 people now Here 2,500 Are from Iowa Illinois Wisconsin Ohio Indiana and Michigan the Eastern states Are Well represented Aud there is a sprinkling from every where. Here As everywhere in the trans Missouri country the people Are intelligent enterprising and progressive. They have 51 Public schools in the county have All the churches Well organized the streams Well bridged and have a Hearty rational social life that is altogether enjoyable. A contented and hopeful spirit pervades the Community. No country is More prosperous. The crops Promise enormous returns to farm labor. Wheat and Rye Are very heavy and the Harvest will be gathered in june. Oats Barley Corn Broom Corn Aud All the vegetables Promise an abundant yield. Fruits Are in their infancy yet but peaches grapes and fruits of the Garden will be abundant with All the careful fruit growers. Railroad prospects Are Good. The Central Branch of the Union Pacific will be running ears into Cawker City by the first of August. A year later the same Road will be Landing passengers and freight along the North Fork of the Solomon in Phillips county. Other lines Are projected from the South and within two years a railway will be running up the Republican Valley hard by the North line of the county. Phillipsburg the county seat is a fair representative of the social commercial Aud material status of a county nearly As Large As Rhode Island and with agricultural possibilities three times As great. The town stands upon a commanding table with Deer Creek and Valley upon the South Aud Plottier Creek upon the West. It was located Here As the county seat in 1872 with the organization of the county has a population of 250 Aud is growing with the develop Emont of the surrounding country. Two newspapers a Fine hotel a half dozen stores As Many shops a saw and touring Mill a Fine school and a Well sustained literary society Are among the things of to Day. Three months hence the town will have a Public Hall built by the associated Enterprise of its Public spirited citizens and devoted to literary dramatic educational and other Public uses. The social life is eminently hospitable and there is an unusual degree of personal and Public Enterprise to characterize a Community whose pioneers were disputing the ground with buffaloes and Savages Only half a dozen years ago.

The newspaper men nourish Here As everywhere in Western Kansas.
