Almont, Colo., July 22, 19U3.
Dear Friends of Sioux County:
My last was ihaiied at Baily's, the
pla'ie wliere we struck the north fork of
the South I'lutte which we followed for
ubout 1H miles. This is the much adver
tised Fla'.le canon und is lined with
hotels, summer cottages, tents, and am
bitious lisheruieu. We drove out a
I UprReasj
short distance I rum Bailey "s vnd made water and lake a snap of the camp and
our camp in a pretty, shaded, lovely sK)l j t he lull near, it was so pretty there under
beside a mountain brook, whose waters j the trees We blarted to follow Chalk
were cold all day long. We hung on ! creek up to St. Elmo with some ruis
haniiuocks and made ourselves very givuins us lo the road, but it was not
comfortable to stopover Sabbath. T.vo j had, up all Ihe way and somewhat stony
squirrels, shared our camp with us and ; Uut no frightful places v i all. We went
made themselves very much at home ; slow ly and found many beautiful iots
eating up the crumbs almost as soon as along the way, e.-picialiv a lascaile
they dropped. Mondaj morning we still I where the watc-r took a long tumble
lingered iu mis lovely sKt. Mr. Rice J ovtr the rocks. We had rain the liist
and Roy went llshing ai d I washed a day out Iroui Denver but no more for a
little and baked out meal cookies. Wei week until v eUiiLsday und Thursday
did not have llsh for dinner, but ufierj Uighls who we h-ul brisk showers alter
dinner jiacked tip and went on our way, we were settled lor the night, bo they
past mole hotels and pleasure seekers
as we we'll lo Webster, We have heard
much of the Kenosha hill which we were
to climb to take us into South Park and
supposed we should need at least a dav
for ll, but v:hen we reached Webster and
found it was only i miles to the top we
went on and made our camp aliout hull
way up about 10. M feet high. After
supper the horses were no where to he
seen. Mr. Rice and Roy hunted them
until dark uud Bertha and Roy took a
trip back to Webster by moonlight, hut
we had to go to Ud without litem, hav-
ilig however Ihe cheerful assurance of
the man at Webster, that all tourists
lost their horses lip there and they were
probablv in some of the canons. If we
didn't Und them in the morning he would
help us. We did ((nil lliein however, as
he prophesied and were traveling again
hy nine o'clock. Hunting horses at 10X1
feel above sea level niusl begood lor Mr.
Rice lor he has not hud a tired spell since.
Crossing into South Park we hud a com -
piiratively level road for a couple of days
along the west side of the Park. On our
right the Park Range had peaks 12 and
13 thousand feet high and occasional
glimpses of higher ones Ivyond. some of
lliein with patches ol snow on them. On
our left a comparatively level country
with mountains in the distun.e, irrigated
meudows wherever the creeks gave the
necessary water. Otherwise ihe country
wus pretty bare of feed. It is said to fie
unusually dry Ibis year as there was less
snow than usual in the mountains last
winter and the cattle looked pretty poor.
We passed through Jefferson, Coins, and
Fairplay then a day's drive with no town
of any size. We passed the salt works
ttnl allowed time to see what was there,
J im found that thev bad not been operat
ed for thirty years. They were only
nrolltable when there was no rail-road
and salt could lie sold for 25 cts. per Di.
We had to drive farther than we had
meant to in order to find any feed at all.
Most of the country was absolutely bare
of anything but stones. Finally we
camped near a spring where there was
a little grass although it had been eaten
almost into the ground. Two rail-rouds
crossed the hill at this point; it was the
divide between South Park and the Ar
kansas valley, Il required three engines
and a vast amount of pulling to get a
short train up the hill at a very slow
rute. Thursday's drive was short in the
number of miles covered, but long in its
windings. We followed a little stream
and the narrow guage rail-road through
the hills into Uuena Vista, crossing them
both numberless times and marveling
that there was room for us all in the nar
row winding gorge. Just before reach
ing the town we came out into the
broader Arkansas valley and just at the
foot of the Colligiete Range Hawurd,
Yale. Princeton, all over 14000 feet high.
We learned moie about the road and
bought some supplies including a couple
of bales of hay and drove out to the fort
of Ml. Princeton, about S miles, here we
found a piece of road that made us
tremble for the future, Needlessly how
ever, for we have not bud so uncomfort
able a place since. It wound down the
sandy side ol a canon, the road Issing
made in 'he side, barely wide enough for

No ag ;nU. Prepared and sold only by
the track, and looKiug as il a lew mciies
out ol the road would send us to the
bottom of tile canon, lar loo many feet
Iwlow to look down on comfortably. It
was traveled a good deal and I suppose
was sale, but we all breathed easier
when we had reached Chalk creek at the
bottom. Here was a rail-road station
and hotel and a line new seuatorium not
yet occupied. We pitched our tent
under some Uaulil'ul cotton-woods near
the stream and also ne'tr some hot springs.
We wanted next morning to wash some
handkerchiefs and tuwls in the warm
did not ti'oulie us particularly. Friday
however we hud about live separate
showers with suiisli.ue between, and the
last one was a hard one uud we had lo
camp while it was going on, close by
St. Eoho. Some sleet lei I an when Ihe
sun came out a lew minutes at selling
the mout.luiiis all around were covered
with snow. The nexi morning Ihe tent
und Ihe wagon sheet were irozen solid
and we began to lealiz; that we were up
in the cold. The sun came up wurui
however and thawed us out before we
started on. At Bueiia V'isui we fell it)
with a party of three gentlemen uud
arranged to cross the pass togellwr. so
this morning we set out for the final
climb seven miles to the top and seven
miles to Tin v up a mining town on the
j other side. There were no lad places
! only some pretty sleep pulls. The oilier
! people had a load and we doubled up and
I helped over Ihe two worst lulls but we
did not need any help ourselves; Ned.
1 Suncho, and Bess made it without any
I difficulty. These lasl few miles there
I was more vegetation than farther down,
to my surprise, and there was no defined
timber hue tlio' we went 12!J00 It. Inrh.
Berlha, Roy, and I walked up the sl'.eper
pitches and could not see that it was
harder than at home. The seven miles
down Was pretty sleep and stony, alid we
were lad to rest over Sunday. Again
we had trees and a brook lo make our
camp pleasant, and when the sun shone
it was lovely, but Saturday night there
was ice half un inch thick over the water
in the tent, and all ihe extras did not
quite keep uh all warm; thanks to the
lurcoat and the hot water bug, we in the
wagon kept warm, Monday we drove
down over some of the rockiest road we
had ever seen for 25 miles or more. The
descent on this side is steeper and the
roads stonier than on the other. Having
found a patch of good grass, "the only
feed in all the country", said the man
who directed us to It. we were glnd to
rest and write letters while Roy improv
ed the opportunity to go fishing. We
hope to make Gunnison this afternoon
and then have about 00 miles to our
journey's end,

Speciiil market letter from Hyh & BU
Grass cattle comprise the big bulk of
the receipts, very few cornfeds nrriving.
Market has advanced lor the week owing
largely to the fact that lietter fatted
cattle ate arriving. We quote best corn

pooily and below Is-st grass heel ; choice
fat hayfedn 5.75 to 0.15; rungs beef 4 75
to 5.40; common to fair grades going lo
both killers and feeders at 4.00 to 4.00;
choice, fat. dry rows 4 00 to 4 35; butcher
stuff a. 00 to 8.50; dinners 1.75 to 2 50
Hogs have recovered some of the de
lire, owing to light, receipts, but fair t
large receipts would bring heavy decline.
Range of prices 7. 115 to 7.70.
Moderate receipts of sheep brought ll
steady advance of 22 to 80 cts. last week.
This week starts with a weaker lone, and
heavy receipts would no doubt brin a
sharp decline. We quote grnss sheep
