As the horses of the easterners puffed and panted their way toward the plain they came to a drinking pool and there they overtook a westerner escorting a dudine patron. The west erner was Pap Snyder. Pap explained that he was looking for strayed cattle and soon after the combined party reached the plateau Snyder, in pursuance of his mission, disappeared in the woods and was J left behind by the pleasure-seeking riders, who trotted on. An hour or more had passed and the three easterners, having riden as far as they desired, had descended to the main valley level and were riding home when they met Pap Snyder and his companion still apparently riding for cattle and wholly unsuccessful in •earch. The resident dude shouted to Mr. Snyder that there were small bunches of cattle in each of the two water hole grazing plots a bit farther down the range. Mr. Snyder answered that he had already spied the cattle thru a glass from a high point some dis tance back. A moment or two later the eastern er heard his name ailed and, looking back, saw Pap Snyder riding towards him. When the sturdy old ranchman came within hearing distance he halt ed and extended his arm in graceful salutation, after the manner of free men of ancient Roman days. Then he raised his voice: “I want you to know, Colonel Little, that I’m just as much obliged to you for telling me agout the cattle, just as much obliged as if I hadn’t already discovered them.” And, with a charming smile, the beat beloved character of the South Fork waved his good-day—which la mentably turned out to be his good bye.

The lesson of Pap Snyder’s life of the gentleness of real strength should serve a purpose of usefulness to the young men of the day who make a study of adopted, coarseness and rude manners in a mistaken belief that, by such means, they do honor to them* selves and to the spirit of the West. “If you would be remembered, write your name in the hearts of men, rath er than upon tablets of marble.” 'board names ' STOC£JUDGES Officials of Livestock Di vision At Fair An nounced E.
