Editor Chikptain: The recent snows have been a great help to cattle and sheep, they being able to stay in the high hills now where they have water and grass together. It seems that II. T. Maybcry of Patterson and II. C. Medley of Magdalena arc distinguishing themselves as destroyers of the lobo wolf. Mr. Maybcry is using a pair of tamed wolves in his ad ventures, while Mr. Medley is using steel traps. They have killed twelve of the beasts, nine of these being snared by May bcry. There is ouite a bit of interest being taken among cowmen re garding the action of Juan Gar cia and Jesus Landovazo's sheep herds. They have moved their sheep in on the range of our neighbors Williams and Gatlin and have stated that they intend staying there as long as snow lasts. This is a bad thing on Williams and Gatlin as they have quite a herd of cattL and not very much grass. This is an outrage. The cattlemen must get together and try to do some thing, by compromise if possible. L,ONK UACHELOK. Base Hall Apraln. The ball game Sunday was witnessed by an unusually large crowd.
