I would like tell the readers of your
valuable paper of the very pleasant
visit I made at the home and ranch of
Mrs. Hood and daughter, Miss Addie,
twelve miles north of us, last Sunday,
returning Monday afternoon. Mrs.
Hood and daughters arc ladies of tine
intelligence, culture and refinement
whom It Is an honor to call friends.
Miss Addie is an expert pianist and has
u first-class instrument and gave us
fcome very fine Instrumental music.
They took me Monday in their fine
equipage over their extensive ranch,
well stocked with thoroughbred cattle,
and I was pleased to note tho excellent
condition their stock is in in spite of
the hard winter through which they
have recently passed. Mrs. Hood told
me they had not lost a head, which is
remarkable when nearly every rancher
has lost stock, some quite heavily. Hut
the rigorous hardships of caring for
stock through such cold, stormy
weather as we have had so much of
during the past winter, has sickened
them of stock raising on so large a
scale nnd they have concluded to dis
pose of the most of their cuttle and
then sell their hay instead of feed
ing it, for although their ranch is all
table laud with ravines, it produces
large quantities of grass suitable to
to make hay of, mostly wheatgrass.
In conclusion I will say I had one of
the most enjoyable of visits. Congenial
friends! How much their companion
ship is to be enjoyed and desired.

Crowded over from lust week.
Miss Ethel Covult will soon close her
school in the Elsass district and return
to her home near Clcman.
Rev. Noyce spoke to the audience
assembled at the Clemau school house
Friday evening concerning u circulat
ing library and an organization for its
support. A meeting was culled for
Tuesday evening, March 24, to discuss
tho possibilities of organization.
The Cleman school clo-ed Friday,
March 20. A program was rendered in
the evening, consisting of a vocal solo,
duet, trio and choruses by the pupils
and orchestral music by the Messrs.
Cox-alt and recitations, essays, drills
and tableux by the pupils. Hev. Noyce
addressed the audience a few minutes
before the close, briefly setting forth
some of the work of the school and in
addition presented the subject of con
centration of thought. The program
was presented to a goodly number of
friends and patrons of the school who
expressed themselves well pleased with
its rendering and the progress of the
pupils during this term of school.
Some pupils were absent on account of
the cold weather and sickness. These
were Lottie Owen, Stella 1'etty, Don
ald (Jraham and Madge Graham. Mary
Covnlt and Willie Uraham made good
grades in their final examinations.
Their papers were graded by the
teacher and approved by Hev. Noyce
und are now forwarded to the county
superintendent of Cheyenne county.
The pupils wrote on the following sub
jects: Mary Covalt, "The (treat West;"
Willie Graham, "1'raKe a Fine Hay at
Night." The shortness of time did not
permit of their committing to memory
their productions, so they were deliv
ered as essays. A very unique number
on the program was a wand drill in
Greek costumes of white with tho addi
tion of pretty colored sashes, blending
harmoniously with thtf colored lights
in the tableau at tho closo. It was
given by five misses from twelve to
fourteen years of ago.
