After nearly twenty-two years Con
Bheehan, a ranchman on the Sweetwater,
has received 129.8s In payment for a
steer which waa marketed at Chicago
The money was transmitted by the
Wyoming Stock Growers' association,
which haa been holding It since Septem
ber. 1K4. when Its Inspector at Chicago
discovered a steer branded with a cross
curb C m a shipment made by J. M.
Carey A Bro. from Casper. Not until re-
Icently waa it established that the cross
curb C cattlo were owned by Sheehan
Broa., a firm of which oCn Sheehan Is
the surviving member.
Th delivery of the money recalls that
twenty-two years ago Wyoming beef waa
bringing only J cents on th Chicago
market, which ws the beat market to
which Wyoming stockmen could ship at
that time. The Sheehan ateer weighed
t.lM pounds and brought SlS.SS. The dif
ference betwen th selling nrlc and th
price which Sheehan haa received after
twenty-two years was deducted for ex
