Special from our wandering corres
pondent. As you requested me to
let 3011 know what kind of a country
thi was over here I will try and tell
you. After you cross the Hepublican
at Orleans and get across the Smoky
you find as good a farming country
as one could wish to see. The coun
try is one level prairie from Ahnena,
Kansas, to Burlington. Colorado. Get
on a wind mill 50 feet high and you
can look over the country for 50
miles or more. Every foot of country
in the north tier of counties in Kan
sas is t:.ken up and nearly all of the
rest. Have not seen but three frame
houses on farms since we left Norton.
All od houses and some of them
built two stories high. Colby is go
ing to be the laigest town in western
Kansas. There are between 40 and
50 new houses going up now. We
load 53 miles Saturday and only had
to cross three draws and did not
necessarily have to cross them. It is
the lcrele.it country I ever saw. It is
a new country and has not farmed
much. Cattle and horses are all look
ing fine and have lived off of buffalo
grass all winter. We will bt- in Col
orado if nothing happens. Every
town of 200 or more iuhabitants ha
got at least one if not two newspaper;
it seems as though ever- town you
come to is having a big boom. Towns
of 150 inhabitants put lots up as high
n from $100 to 500. In Colby lots
range from $30 to $5,000. I saw one
faru: of 320 acres all under cultivation
without a draw in it. You could get
on any corner of it and look all over
it. You may hear from me again
when I get in Colorado. Until theu I
remain yours as evei,
John K. Kesleu.
I ran riehr rn your cattle as cheap as
any n;:;:. on cirlh. See me before j-cu
