sequence that he assisted in remov
ing the car from the creek and at

In some way the car turned com
pletely around and was headed back
toward the bridge from whence it
leaped. Some said the car turned
over twice and a half while others
said twice. The driver thought it
turned three times during the de
scent. At any rate it was a miracle
that the boy escaped serious injury
As to what threw the car through

Tells of Conditions in Northwest

From Thursday's Daily.
A very interesting letter on con

Mrs. J. A. Wilson from her son, II.

past been located in that state:

some catttle? I've got eight high
grade Guernsey cows and a pure bred
bull. Will try the dairy business
for a while. Iiutter fat 'is 73 cents
per pound, so expect a neat income
We've had a long winter, but are
ready for farming now and I never
saw the soil in better condition.
We've had about 3G inches of snow
and its all gone into the ground.
You know just what that means for
Have just finished the house and
will put down a silo this summer.
But I think the land is well worth
I can't keep from thinking of the
change in the country since I came
here. It was October, 1916. The
population of Moffat, Colorado, at
that time was 2.S00. Now it's 9.000.
We had two neighbors, one C miles,
the other 12 miles. Think of us
now with three neighbors in less
than U mile, (and one of them is
a first class doctor and surgeon).
Land is raising in price too.
Three years ago $S or $10 per acre
was considered a good price. A
place not far from here sold last
week for $11,000, and another for
$7,000, and this land will producp
just as much" wheat, oats, or any
pmall grain, as th3 higher priced
northern land will.
But a few places were filed on for
speculation. These can be had rea
sonable or cheap. Do you know of
anyone interested in this country?
If so, give them my name and ad
dress and I will be glad to answer
any questions, concerning the land,
Uncle Sam surely picked an ideal
home making country when he threw
northwestern Colorado open for
homesteaders. And his land is get

so I will quit for this time. Write
me when you can. I'm expecting
to see you and the boys out her this
