bear Sir: The ancient Parthian
claimed that where dwelt their gods
snow could be gathered with one
hand, and at the same time Sowers
with the other. This must have
been the place, for it is truly the
case here. The most beautiful wild
flowers are not unusal at this season
of the year surrounded by snow.
Last night when we retired a dark

croud nung over the mountains
above us, the lower parts draging
among the higher peaks, and this
morning we are having a fine snow
storm who about four inches on the
ground. For the past ten days the
weather has been fine, clear and
sunshioe, yet the streams near by
have gotten higher and higher.
You can plainly bear the round
granite boulders grinding on one
another and the roar of the waters
a mile away as it plunges down the
canyons. Most of these waters
reach the Missouri river and cause
tbe June rise. Our government is
preparing to store this water for use
later in the season, for irrigating.
Engineers are now in the field here
and the practical results are assured.
This country has 1 bright future.
Sheep and cattle interests are the
great industries here and about
equally divided. But one is yery
antagonistic to the other. The
operators of tbe different interests
only agree on one point, and that is
in the destruction of wolves. We
read how centuries ago, Abraham's
and Lot's herders bad strife be
tween them. The same conditions
exist bere to-day and baa continued
to exist from the days of those pa
