this 'There is a reason.' The war
stripped the cattle country of its young

stock too heavy for the family the
ranchers sold short. They gave to the!

"Oh yes, more cattle will go to mar

the mountain in about three days and
iriieet re-inforcements theiv, so we
took rations for three dnys, but there
were pn road.-, and we therefore made
them, and it took time, so we were out
about ten days before wo met the said
re-inforcements and we foraged on the
mountain country through which we
passed, and when we met them they
were the 10th Cavalry, who are colored
troopr. Well it happened to be on the
fourth of Augu.st, and they were feel
ing fine, and their commander gave us
an order to their Quartermaster who
was with the rest of their company
about half a mile further on to feed
us. Well, we went on and presented
our order, and imagine our surprise
when they sat us down to a supper
of beef steak and onions, with good
light bread, all of .which we had not
had for seven months. Well the first
quest;on we wanted to ast was this,
"Where did the beef come from?" but
we did not 'atk it, for we had proof
that they had it, and' that was enough.
