Centennial Post. GOOD BEEF FROM NORTH PARK. _ Among the oldlime cottlemen here yesterday was Andrew Norell of Walden Colorado, who marketed a string of hay fed western steers at $5.80, with cows at SI.OO. Mr. Norell wont into the North Park country 25 or 30 years ago and has been raising high grade cattle there ever since, lie not only breeds the best but feeds enough hay every winter to get his stuff in good sha|>e for the early spring markets. That tiiis veteran of the range believes in raising the best cattle possible is evi dent from character of the sires he puts on the range. Yesterday ho purchased from the Woods Investment company, here at the yards, two carloads of choice registered Hereford bulls. These hulls were sired by such noted animals as Beau Brummel, Beau Donald, and St. Elmo of Shadeland. and their effect on the cattle of North Park cannot but be highly beneficial.
