V know of no firm in tho west that

of 6S0 steer. On Saturday following tho
! convention Jas. Feagins, the junior mem
ber ot the turn, went to Denver to get
1,000 more steers which had been pre
viously sold to 0. P. Meeks of Upton, Wyo.,

the Colorado capital with F. F. Peterson

to keep track of their cattle sales, hot these
are mentioned as a sample of what they
are doing in the live stock business.
