While Mew Meilro was not hit as hard
By the droulb as West Texas conditions
In the neighboring slate are worse than
they have been at any tiiaje since the great
drouth In W0Í-03 said Mr. estro. Cattle
are now In the foothills where I scant
supply of reed Is to bo round but within
a short tunc they will have to abandon
the mountain range ror the flats and cat-
tlemen are dreading to see the lime romc
when snow will rorce their stock rrom
the bills as there is no reed ror them on
"There have been no deaths among herds
In New Mexico up to this time" sa'.d Mr.
Jaatro "but we can expect them when
the cold storms or winter swoop down up-
on us. From March on wilt be the worst
period ror cattle rrom turn until It rains
cattlemen who have no money to buy
feed and cannot get credit will be up
galust a tough proposition."
Maay Cattle Cannot Be slaved.
All the cattle that it has been possible
to move from New Mexico ara now on
ranges In other slates where grasa is more
plentiful. The Ulamond-A outfit has been
moving Its New Mexico cattle to California
where the company owns extensive range.
But thousands or head owned by the rom-
liany cannot be moved as range cannot be
round ror tbem. Hundreds or other ranch-
era in Hits section aro facing the same
proposition said Mr. Jastro.
Soapweed as a reed la to be tried out
by the Diamond-A company on Ita ranges
in Uie droulh-strlcken area.
"Soapweed makes a good teed when
nothing else can lie had" said Mr. Jastro.
"I went Into Sulphur Springs valley In
Arizona last year to see It tried out tor
the rirat time. Tbere II was cbopicd down
and rut up by hand but we are building
a cutter on the range at Engle N. .v. near
the Klephant Butte dain.
"While cattle can subsist on soapweed I
Intend to reed a small amount or cake
with It to add nourishment. I am now
placing a good-slxed. order tor cotton seed
reed which Is to be used with aoapweed."

With the romantic open range gone ror-

methods under which Ibe business Is now
being conducted In tbe east. The proph-
ecy was made by Mr. Jaatro artar he tail
