of Dyersburg, Tenn., named C. S Ferguson
arrived in Cairo from Evansville and took a
state room on tho steamer Henry A. Tyier
to go home. Being tired he retired to
sleep early, and about ten o'clock was
awakened by some uoise, and looking
around missed bis new overcoat, and fur ber
search revealed the fitct that with the coat
hd also disappeared a roll of bills amount
ing to two hundred dollars. He placed
the matter in the hands of Constable Sh.ee
han, but up the present writing no clue has
beeu discovery. The theory is that some
ono had followed him Fr m Evansville,
where he had sold a car load of sorghum,
expecting to get some eight hundred dol
lars, but fortunately most of it had Ik en
sent borne by mail. Mr. Ferguson is anx
ious to make thj acquaintance of the gen
tleman who so kindly relieved him of the
care of bis property, and to that end will
cheerfully and promptly pay fifty dollars
reward for the return of his coat with the
thief. He would like bb much of the two
hundred dollars as could be found, but the
reward is offered especially for the light
fingered gentleman who is now probably
wearing bis new overcoat.
Special Correspondence to The Bulletin:
Four Fred Steele, Wyo. Terr., October
25th, 1883. -Leaving Greeley, Col, on
time, we were flying along thtough the
agricultural region north of the town. Im
mense fields of pain in stack, corn and
potatoes, greeted the eyo on every eide.
H-in. B. Eaton being on tho train and b-ing
an old-time friend and neighbor of ours,
wo were soon in pleasant converse with this
large land owner and one of Colorado's
most honored citizens. Ho invited us to
Ihe platform of the coach from which we
had n grand view of his 5,000-acre farm.
Many farm houses were to be seen around;
said be, "dll those houses are mine except
ono. I put up seventeen brick farm houses
fr my tenants this summer." The larae
elevator, store house and school house at
Eaton station, belong to him. He will have
about 30,000 bushe'a of wheat as the crop
of 1893. There were raised the present
season, near Elton, almost 100,000 bushels
of potatoes, a large proportion of them on
his model farm.
Alter crof sing the big cm -il that carries
water to this fine section, we pnssed through
an uninteresting region of rolling, almost
btrren plains to Cheyenne, the capital of
Wyoming. After a delay of two hours, wo
set out, westward bound, passing over the
back bone of the American continent at
Sherman, the highest point of theU. P. R.
R. in crossing the Ricky mountnin range.
A large monument to the memory of O ikes
Ames, the projector of the U. P. R. R.
stands just to the left of Sherman. It is
built of immense blocks of granite laid in
subbtantial masonry. To the right oi Sher
man and further west, the spurs of the
Black Hills aro passed through before
entering upon the grand Larimie plains
where thousands of cattle, horses and sheep
range at will, feeding upon the luxuriant
grasses. At Limine City intelligence was
received that a Berious collision had occur
red near Rock creek, between a freight
and passenger train. We had to liy there
nearly all night awaiting the clehriug of
the track. We passed the wreck soon after
laylight. The freight train wa8 a total
wreck, most of the cars wero burned. We
arrived at Fort Fred Steele about 11a. m.,
nine hours behind time. This fort is on
the South Pla'to river, 178 miles west of
Cheyenne. Undo Sam has a goodly num
ber of boys in blue stationed here. Soldiers
everywhere around and martial array is the
pastime hero. It having bnon arranged for
a atop off hero and a journey by private
conveyance, of almost 40 miles up the Plnt-
te river, friends were in waiting and at 1
p. m. wa set out for a drive over tho sago
covered, wild and desolate plains. Eight
miles distance brought us to tho first signs
of habitation, a stockman's ranch on a
small stream of water. We wore told that
the next houBe was sixteen miles off. It
was an unpleasant drive as the weather wns
cold and blustery; however at almost nine
o'clock at night wo pulled up in front of a
stock ranch where we had fair accomraoda
