NORTHERN WYOMING HERALD lAFE MG TELLS DLSMNES CM REMS OF Iffl. BY LAFAYETTE YOUNG It is to early for me to express a general opinion of Wyoming, as the people of the state complain that their country has not received suffi cient attention; that they are in the middle west of the west. The people come here from Illinois and lowa, Minnesota and Missouri and they come here from California and Oregon. The far-eastern man if I he comes west at all does not stop at Wyoming. He goes to the coast. Wyoming is about twice the size of the state of lowa, has plenty of range for cattle and sheop; plenty of fish in the mountain streams which I have named in the former letter. BIG GAME COUNTRY The state has mineral wealth in cluding copper, gold, silver, coal and winding up with coal oil. Coal oil is now the third industry in the state. Cattle being first and sheep second. Wyomind is also a big game country. The soil is good enough and will pro duce anything when water is applied. It would be easy to have good roads in Wyoming on account of the na ture of the soil. The absence of rain does not hurt the roads particularly. But it is evident there are heavy rains here at times for the gullies and washouts would indicate that there are very heavy rainfalls. Wyoming will never be an agricultural state in the sense of lowa and Illinois, but it will produce many agricultural pro ducts. Alfalfa is a successful crop in the valleys of the streams. The snow on the mountains will furnish water for many purposes in some parts of Wyoming and the water that comes from the snow is the best ever. NEEDS RAILROADS Wyoming will ultimately be a play ground for the states of the middle west. The big game hunter can reach big game quicker in Wyoming than by going anywhere else. Such a town as Lander, in Wyoming ought sometime to be a big resort. This I have said before. Wyoming must have more miles of railroad in the future. There are too many places where there are no transportation fac ilities. The tourist business of Wyo ming is large and will be larger. The Cody entrance to the Yellow stone park is new. It is at the east ern edge of the park and is reached by the Burlington line. The Burling ton line branches off from the route to Billings, but all the trains run to Cody on the branch and a passenger can take a sleeping berth from Omaha to Cody. When I visited the park thirty years ago there was but one entrance and that was from Garden er on the Northern Pacific. There is also an entrance at the present time on the western line of the park, from PARK OUTFITS FOR SALE COMPLETE PARK and Pack out fits, also some saddle horses.

THINGS TO FORGET. g/*TC*rULtfA»Tldt ' call,, <• ... I— s a station called Yellowstone on the Union Pacific. Thus there are three ways of getting into the park. TO YELLOWSTONE PARK Nearly all the railway lines run ning in and out of Des Moines sell round-trip tickets to the Yellowstone for $41.32. This entitles the passen ger to visit Salt Lake, Denver, Colo rado Springs, Pike’s Peak, without extra charge. The round-trip sleep ing car fare from Des Moines direct to the Yellowstone is $14.00. The tour thru the park in the horse coach es is $50.00. Thus the total sum from Des Moines to Yellowstone and thru the park and back again to Des Moi nes is $105.32. To this sum should be added $60.00 for incidentals. Then you have the entire expense, and I think it is worth the money. A good automobile driver could drive directly from Des Moines to the Yellowstone and thru the park with out paying any railroad fare what ever. It has not been a great many years since automobiles were admit ted to the park and they now operate under the strictest regulations, but au tomobiles cannot carry paying pass engers. The citizens of Cody brought their own automobiles to town and they are now driving thirty or more Wyoming editors thru the park with out expense, but I prefer to go the regulation way and pay the regula tion price. In order to tour the park without doubling any of the route we shall omit going to Mammoth Hot Springs, which is the Gardiner en trance to the park. We shall not miss much and thus shall save our selves traveling over any part of the road twice. Going in from Cody we shall pass thru for a distance of fifty miles some beautiful scenery outside of the park. Our road will be thru a forest reserve held by the Federal government and a game preserve held by the state of Wyoming. Wc shall pass by the Shoshone dam, which backs water for twenty miles and is expected to reclaim 150,000 acres of arid lands. The dam is already built, but for the lack of a tunnel thru the mountain the water does not reach the lands for which it was intended Litigation is holding up the project We shall enter the park at Pahaska which means a big log house or a ser ies of log houses, and two miles be yond this is a military post where wr actually go into the park. Pahaska is one of Buffalo Bill’s summer re sorts up in the mountains and tour ists appreciate it. THE PROUD COWPUNCHER The farm boys of lowa and every other working man could learn ales son from the cowboys of Wyoming The cowboy is proud of his job: proud of his particular manner of dress; glorying in his hat He feels that he is one of natures choicest pro ducts. He rides the range with ener gy and persistency and when he goes to a barn dance on some big ranch he can dance with any lady there. As a rule he is a good dancer and his con duct is gentlemanly. He is cour teous in manner and manifests self confidence. He enjoys life because he respects his employment. Ik* thinks il is an honor to be a cowboy and he would not change places with a town prince. The trouble is with our farms and shops in lowa and oth er purely agricultural states that they do .not glorify and magnify and feel! pride in their occupation. Pride in an occupation brings happiness. When a man feels that he is perform ing a menial part, one that is be neath him, he is a miserable wretch Among the men who do things in Wyoming, no matter what the line is. there are no distinctions. Some months ago, a man from the east being in a Wyoming town , look ed down the main street about 7:00 p. m. and remarked to a lady of hi ; acquaintance that he could not see a woman on the street, adding also that he understood it was dangerous for a woman to be on the streets of a western town at night. The lady be ing a westerner replied that there were no men standing on the street in the western towns leering at the women who passed or making re- PAGE SEVEN BANKER MIES EOIWS WIDOW Groom One of Wyoming’s Besl Road Boosters Tells of Work Done on Highway M. R. Collins, president of the Douglas National bank and Mrs. Anna Potter, owner of the Douglas Enter prise, were married at the home of j the brides parents in Casper last week I and after a tour of Yellowstone park ! spent Monday and Tuesday in Cody. . Mr. Collins is one of the leading men !of Converse county and is commis- I sioner of the Yellowstone highway. He is a good roads booster of the highest type. In speaking of the work done on the Yellowstone highway Mr. Collins said: “When we get a road all the way across Wyoming from Cheyenne to the Yellowstone Park there will be twenty cars to one now. I don't be lieve we appreciate the demand there is for a good road. “Down in our section of the state there has been a great deal of inter est and activity. Converse county (of which Mr. Collins is Yellowstone highway commissioner) has its en tire road crowned and six miles of it is gravel surfaced. We have spent $50,000 on this road in the past two years and we expect to continue our efforts until it is a boulevard asross our county. “Platte county has graded their entire distance and Laramie county is doing fresh work this summer and will be finished to their north line before fall. Natrona county has gone as far as Waltman with a crowned road and will pass Arminta before long. The ground is very dry and hard to move. Consequently prog ress is slow. “Our people are finding that fall work is better than spring for the winter rains and snows settle the new work and with dragging in the spring we have a hard road for all summer. Spring work does not set tle and work up fine and dusty. The wind has a bad effect and makes bad holes in places. “Our people have also found that with the natural materials for road building that drainage is the most important item in road construction. If the road men will see that the wa ter is taken care of so that it does not get under the road they have sol ved a serious problem. “The traffic is just started. Doug las is feeling the increased financial return from the auto tourist travel and our business men are stronger than ever for better roads.” marks concerning them. This is a true statement of life in the western towns. Women are respected and treated with the greatest courtesy. These western plases are freer from gossip than towns farther east of the same size. The lady assured the man from the east that while the women were not on the streets they might be at the picture shows. If you see a man wearing a shirt of a deep red color, with no tie whatjj ever, large metal buttons on tNM shirt, and home made assured he is a “half breed.'’ Si
