BIS THOUGHTS OFTEN
(Continued From Page 1.)
business prosperous as all of the
money.is spent here at home.
Mr. brother-in-law, D. B. Williams,
formerly of N'ewberry, conducts a
large mercantile business.
As a result of the mining business
here, Caddo is situated between the
Red and Blue Rivers, where wild
game of every description abounds.
Sometime when I am out shooting
deer and antelope, I think of the boys
back at my old home chasing a poor
little cotton tail rabit for dear life
through briar patches, and if they bag
two or three, they think they have had
a sucesessful day's outing. The Jack
Rabbit is, or would be, quite a eur
iosity with the boys of Newberry.
They are about. three times the size
of the cotton tail, with cars about
eight inches long and can run as swift
as the red fox in your home country.
Speaking of the fox recalls pleasant
memories of the chase I used to take
after them back there with Burt Neel,
a son of Mr. Tom Neel, whom you all
know well. Now, I wish you could pay
your Unele Douglass and myself a
Now, as my first residence in this
country was just. neross Red river in
Texas, I will give a brief description
of that Lone Star state. It is a star,
and I trust that it will continue to
shine, as it has, forever. The east
ern part of it is a pine timbered coun
try and thickly settled, and at that,
mostly by cattle men or ranchmen as
they are called. There is where we
find the real cow boy. Two or three
of them out on a range miles away
from any human being, herding thou
sands of eattle day and night, with no
company except two or three noble
shepherd dogs, and a faithful pony.
They have a. caml) or cook wagon,
which they take to town when they
need them, returning probably not to
see town or any human being for sev
eral months iutil their supplies are
exhausted. Such is the lonely life of
the Texas cow hoy. But there is a
noble IearIt that beats belneath his
m11anl1y hosomi. Their chief sport used
to be clasing ati lariting" the wild
huitalo. WIlenl tlle huf''alo would he

Last year-.I made a tour through COl
Canada. - That country, or at least nel
the western part, is certainly coming pr
to the front. Southwest Canada is thi
now quite a grain country. They are otl
using a great deal of our machinery ica
n. the farms over there. The small ne
stock farmer is crowding the cattle w<
nan out there, the same as here now. fol
The large cattle man's time is limited w<
ww everywhere, but the country will th
not be any the worse off for it, for So
what cattle are raised then, will be tal
better than now, and every farmer th(
will then raise a few steers for mark- ha
et where they cannot compete with the tic
nan that has the large range now. all
From Canada I came back down in Onl
M(itaimia and onl into Washington. ke
I have not very much to say for Mon- 110
tannia, only that .1 thought from the Pe
weather I uist. have been very near 4no
the North Pole. Thtere is some beau- Pc
(iful scenery along the line of the
ireat Northern Railway through the M
Rocky Mountains in Montanna. On Au
the plains of that state I traveled for is
[. distance of one hundred and fifty th
miles without seeing one soul except so
some half civilized Indians. That was wl
nlong the head of the Missouri River. of
The -next places of interest to me PC
was the Cascade Tunnel through the th4
Cascade mountains in Washington, I
and that beautiful stream, the Co- Sc
lumbia river, where the greater por
tion of our canned salmon are caught. amr
I visited the salmon fisheries and bu
paeking plants, where I learned a anm
,reat deal. Next of interest was the fie
Zreat forests of that state Oregon and at
California. I visited several of the ae
;aw mill districts and logging camps. so
I could write a whole volume on it, be
but will not attempt it now. Next, I -wl
lended back across the great desert su
>f Utah, and on the Great Salt Lake rig
anA Salt Lake City, where I spent .e
Ceveral days with the Mormons, saw til
lie great Temple and Tabennacle. I ag
round there a proseprous and social liv
ct of people. They iave a beautiful we
ind wealthy city there. Next I came ti
m into Colorado, where I visited some a
f thlie famous 1esots. Among them im
was Pike's Peak, the Orand Canyon, hi's
1d he Royal Glor-e and tile Garden j f
>f the Cods. 11 seems, as if the seen- rje
.ry at those places is almost too hil
rand to he reah. After this, T visit- ,
