As & county .t 1 went up into the very heail of ihe. cattle country up thicujfh Mt Thr .mm, Hooker end Cheiry and talked with men from Grnnt end Thonsis cour.ties. They all told the same, tale this whole region is short o' c!ittlr and w'll be shorter at the er.d of the season. "To meet oMipat'ons fotno ranchers me. : rllii.c down to the last hoof. They, I ke a lot of other folks, are hoping hrt they cm My bruk later. Where sre they to ro? If the ranchers are Fellinir short row and the fr.rmers have nly haif enouph who will supply the breeding stock to cac up the surplus feed. "In the farming counties com, oats roufch feed and pdsture are abundant, heap, and without a market. In the cattle country hay was kept over from last year and this year's crop has no demand. Pasture grass stands un touched upon a thousand hill. For all this 'There is a reason.' The war stripped the cattle country of its young men and young men are needed to Tai.se cattle. Finding the care of the stock too heavy for the family the ranchers sold short. They gave to the! Red Cross and other war calls 'until it hurt.-1 "Then came the call to rake more food. With a supreme effort more cattle, were bought at a high price. -on short notes of a year or less. , .Men, women and children worked and toiled t 'carry on.' "Then "came the' close lown. Liquidation was demanded. One rancher with a certain number of cat tle bought as many more on time. Now he is shipping all every hoof to take up his notes on the half he bought. Draining the Dregs. "Oh yes, more cattle will go to mar ket this fall, but it will drain the cup to the dregs. Who will restock the cattle country. The ranchers that hold out will prosper, but the country as a whole will be the loser. The small stockman, the man with small means and a family will go unless some finan cial plan can be worked out to give him a chance. "A few short months ago these peo ple offered their youth and their all on tbealtar of their country; today they are closed out Their home stands desolate. Coyotes prowl where happy children played . Wild fowl multiply where domestic poultry flourished. "From boxcar roofs hundreds of men eome hungry, me hunting, for work, look on the scenes I have described, as ihey pass through on the westbound Burlington freight. "Establish a better system for financing these men on the small as wtll as large ranches. Let the farm ers in the g rain counties also be financed so that they- will not be compelled to sell their breeding stock. Yoo cannot look back to the cattle eountry for your breeding and feeding rattle, after this fall and for borne time to come. To keep your cows and heifers and raise your own cattle seems the only thing to do."
