Your letter of January 12th and
I fathor'u of January iHt and 8th , ro
ocived lanl evening ; wan real glad
to got them. I a'm glad all in well
at home. Don't worry about Wil-

don't look for muoli more tioublo
about hero , but in oitmi anything
might happen , just remember Homo

killed. Thi'Hu nativoH are jiiHt the

they onn't shoot a straight. They
don't value their liven at anything ,
and think more of a gun thaii half
a dozen men. Evt ry thing in ( juiut
just now ; wo don't look for uuuih
until the seven rogimontq of rogu-
lara got hero , then wo will go after
them hard. Poor ignorant devils ;
Uioy don't know anything but tight ,
and don't know that very woll.

They wore very nice.
Your Hon. CI.AIUB.
Editor KICPUUUOA.N : We are
having oold dayn for the laot of
Maroh , as my oxporionoo tells. I
lull Broken Bow on the 28th of
March to visit ( Join ratio U. I ? . Morrow -
row , who was unughl in our last
heavy snow storm on his way home
from the Bow. HIH great coat bo
oamo wet with soft snow , and then
it turned oold and froze HO that his
wagon wheels would not turn , and
ho had to drag his wagon for the
last throe miles as a Hied. lliu
ovorooat would aland alone , and ho
had to take hot water to thaw the
ioe 'from ' his harness , so that ho
could got them unbuckled. Friend
Morrow became HO chilled that ho
was confined to his bed for ton days
or two weeks. Ilo IIVOH near what
is called the old Black Kaneh , and
I was politely invited by Master
Roy Montgomery to visit and note
what improvements they have boon
putting on the ranch. What took
my attention most was the largo
gasoline engine used to pump wat
er , out food and griud g.aui. Ev
erything is handled by the wagon
load and from dumps. No shoveling -
ing is required , only to till feed
troughs in food yards. Everything
ia nicely painted and in ship shape ,
except the cattle , which 8"om to
l have the scab or Texas ttoh , which
they are trying hard to eradicate ,
> , - '
lmt a herd oi 300 head is quite a
number to take care of ; don't think
cattle of all agen do well to run together -
gothor , but Mr Montgomery will
spare no pains to have his oattlc in
good nhapo for spring. The road 4
ami fioldb are so sott or rough that
he has to put four horses or mules
to a. wagon to moye hay , grain ,
lumber or what is necessary to
keep buHincas in shape. To fully
comprehend the vast outlay of
money expended , Mr. editor , you
would have to visit the ranch and
note the workings of the same for a
wcok or moro. Wo think it would
pay Home of thn croakers of No-
brafikn to call and BOO what work
can bo done in a day , when things
are in shape for business. 1 did
not inquire how many hogs and
pigs they had , but thorn wore lots
of them , and they seemed to bo
doing woll. I am going to visit
the ranch again when 1 oan have
the privilege. YOUTH , C. P. 11.
