That is Powder River. The Dry
Fork and the most cussed portion
of a stream which has as great a
profane fame over the face of the
earth as the Mississippi.
In the year 1900, which may be a
year or two hither or thither, a rob
ber chieftan arose in the Red Warll
country north of Natrona county,
and his name was Kid Curry.
The main branch of Powder River
is the principal stream in this sec-1
tlon of the west It has many branch
es. Some do not show on the topo
graphical maps of the state. Any
old sheep-herder however, with years
of service in the Big Horns can telli
you about Powder River.
At any rate, there is Little Powder
River noted as the location of thei
Ballard and Fish dipping pens, the
South Fork, the Middle Fork, the
North Fork, the Dry Fork an l the
Red Fork. All these eventually cul
minate in Main Powder River.
But discreetly fnd silently flowing

But getting back to the main story,
Kid Curry came out of the north

breaks of Little Big Hom in Montana.

was a strong man and he gathered a
about him. Their principal prey,
was the fast mail on the Union Pa-|
cific railroad. They wasted no time
on cattle rustling, horse stealing or
petty holdups.
They had their headquarters at'
the Hole in the Wall Ranch, eighty
' miles northwest of Casper, an im-
I pregnable camp surrounded by
frowning red rim-rocks. Here it was,
said in the old days,a good marks-,
man with a Winchester saddle gun
or “30-30“ could hold the place
against an army as there was onlyl
one narrow entrance.
The "riole in the gang rode
two hundred and fifty xniles over
land to hold up trains and they did
the ride on horse-back. All were ex
pert riders. When steeds became
fatigued, they oorraled herds of
I range horses, roped fresh mouifts,
' and cdhtfnned on their way.
They came out of the Big Hom
i mountains along the top of the main
range over the Bad water and Bear
Creek divides, down Dry Powder
River to Poison Creek and over the
Rawlins trail to the Union Pacific.
Kid Curry and his brothers were
the gang leaders. It is a peculiar!
fact that as famous as the “Hole in
the Wall gang*' became, the only
names known today are the cogno
men* of the Curry brothers who am
believed to have died 1n South
America.

Scott Hazen, was elected sheriff of
Hot Springs county.
In 1900.. United States cavalry
toop up the trail of the “Hole in the
Wall’ gang and searched every hay
stack in the Big Hora Basin from
Bonanza to Stove creek. But they
did not find the quarry.
Joe La. Fora, special agent of the
, Union who could follow
saddle horse trail at a hand gallop
and who ran down and captured the
well-known Tom Hora was the sworn
I enemy of the “Hole in the Wall”
gang. With his operatives, he suc
seeded in stopping their depredations
but he never captured a bona fide
follower of the Curry brothers
| After one Union Pacific robbery,
slashed registered mail bags were
found in a quaking aspen grove at tbe
head of Bear Creek in the Big
Horas—thirty-six hours after the
| robbery. Bear creek a tributary of
the No Wood is at least 250 miles
from the nearest point on the Union
Pacific arid there were no autos in
those days.
I Joe La Fors maintained a stable
of specially trained saddle horses. In
j the yards at Cheyenne, a train with
steam up was always waiting to take
a posse to the port of call. But they
did not catch “Hole in the Wall”
gang”.
With their defiant yell of “Powder
I River—Hole in the Wall” the gang
vanished into the badlands night and
by dawn, they were 150 miles north
and still traveling.
Gradually, cowpunchers and sheep
herders coming into Casper to cele
brate took up the warwhoop. As
the little ball spun in the roulette
circle and the red liquor flowed over
the bar of the Grand Central, the
Wyoming and Long Jack’s, the range
men bellowed “Powder River—Hole
in the Wall.”
The old West passed or became
embarrassed in the presence of oil
riches. The eastern rangers chirp
ed, “Powder River—Let ‘er buck,”
forgetting that a mare is seldom seen
in a bucking exhibition. And the
I name of the ‘Hole in the Wall” sunk
into oblivion. There were none to re
member that the title carried with
>. it barking six-shooters, western
blood, bitter tears and sudden death.
After a period of inocuous desue
' tude, a certain gang of ribald young
men known as the Wild West of 91st
Division of the United States Army
went to France in the World War.
They had been trained at Camp Lewi*
These limber jointed lads were sent
into battle one rainy day in France
, before they hardly knew squads east
from squads west. Before the sun
sank, they climbed over the top chant
ing “Powder River, a mile wide and
an inch deep, the largest river in the
world and Gawd knows how long”
and chased five times their weight
in German wildcats clear back to the
Rhine. Incidentally, they captured
more machine guns that day than the
vaunted Rainbow division had during
its entire service n France. So they
I moved the ‘“Powder River” outfit to
Belgium where the strife was bitter
and bloody.
,| ""Hut the A. E. F. recognized In the
, yell, the appeal of warrior* and nervy
■ men. The old echo of the “Hole in
. the Wall gang” was there. The A.
i E. F. took it up and today it is one
• of the famous slogan* of America.
I It is really a thing of hysterical
,| delight today, to hear a fatted calf
? who came within about three thous
J and miles of he French front, but
managed to scrape together several
, fat war contracts, life hi* treble ten
ar In the battle cry “Powder River.”
1 It Is Inspiring to one who has heard
, the old cry come out of dirty little
[ western saloons after five thousand
beef steer* had been loaded or fifteen
thousand Heinies had bean whipped.
1 “There will come a time of reckoning
‘ when the west wind whimpers sore”.
When the trails have hid their
traces and the riders ride no more.”
