CI. C. Goln. a ranchman from Olllctte.
Wyo,, now In Omaha, says: "It Is not

that makes them so destructive, but we
have to reckon also tho thousands of head
of horses and cattle that are bitten and
then escape. When a gray wolf bites a
horBo or a steer In the hip, or anywhere
else for that .matter, a Breat swelling
takes place and the flesh rots for a large
distance around tho wound.

animals often get away from the wolves

at such a steer In the herd you would not
tldnk this old scar would make much
difference, but It means dollars and cents
to the rancher. When that steer ge's on
the market you have to throw off a few
cents a pound on account of the crippled
hip or flank, and maybe you even have to
sell him subject to government Inspec
tion, when there Is a possibility of the
meat being condemned, and you will oe

"Woll, we have a bounty of TJS per head

they live In the mountains and foothills,
and come down on the prairies at night to
do their work."
