A few years ago this was the home or
the cow-boy but the sturdy farmers
have dilven blm farther west and now
beautiful farms are to be seea In all di-
rections. The country Is rapidly set-
tling up with good Industrious citizens
from other leaa-favored sections and the
way the people are enlarging their
farms and building new bonses are sure
Indications of general prosperity.
Crops are splendid; the cold spell did
no material Injury to vegetation ; and In
a few days we expect to enjoy all the
luxuries or the garden. Cora Is plowed
tbe first time and Is growing nicely; In
faot the prospeot for a good crop Is all
that oould be desired by the meat exact-
ing. Grass Is good and all kinds of
stock passed through the past winter la
good condition. Owners or cattle are
oldlng one and two year olds at $0 and

Investment as there are only two gins
