"Wrnmlnf baa lalit hee foundation
stones and la Just beginning to build.'
declares a Boston Transcript writer who
has completed a three weeks tour of
the stabs. Unlike most visiting corre
spondents, who limit their observations to
a car window, the Boslonlan went far
Into the Interior and "left hardly a nook
unlnsDected." The result la a critical
study of present conditions, tha changes
wrought In a few years and ths Indicated
prospects. Ths writer says. In part:
Wyoming today Is not ths Wyoming of
Owen Wlater's "Virginian." Indeed, the
Wyoming of that book had already
passed In 1902, when ths volume was
written. Ths great fres ranges had
gons; ths day of ths small farmer and
tha Irrigation ditch had begun. This
meant much. Ths economic structure of
life changed with this change. Tha beef
raiser who pastured his stock over a
quarter of ths stats passed away, and
With him Went the cowboy aa literature
knows him tha hard-working, hard-liv
ing, picturesque cowboy riding recklessly
In ths roundups and tramDlns-. 1 n chanrMia
and spurs, Into tho hospitable and fre
quent saloon. Frontier day, a show held
annually at Cheyenne, Is about the only
tUns and placs whers you see cowboys
and cowpunchlng as they used to be.
Proud of ths past which mads the stats
what It Is, Wyoming yearly commemo
rates It by this new historical pageant.
It la only ths extremely eastern and ir
responsible tenderfoot who comes away
from that stirring exhibition with tho
iaea tnat what he has witnessed Is a
representation of Wyoming's regular life.
Grab Gasns Cheeked.
With this development of Wyoming
away from ths old ransa life, the Knn-
velt-Plnchot conservation policy has had
mucn to do. Before that policy could be
put into operation and later, for a whu
after It had become a settled fact for
corporate Interest to grapple with as
best they might, certain aggregations of
capital got away with many rich depos
its of coal, fields of oil and other valu
able minerals, and today hold and ex
ploit thess natural resources wholly to
their own advantags; ths state has se
cured to Itself no royalties whatever.
Thess companies own town sites, run the
stores and deliver ths votes to ths satis
factory candidate. It Is tho story of
Pennsylvania Steel and Coal a.11 over
again. But aslds from thess exceptions,
Wyoming Is being developed In ths main
rightly and progressively. I refer partic
ularly to ths disposition of agricultural
lands to ths small landholder tha kind
of Immigrant for which Wyoming Is to
Irrigated land of the richest kind with
abundant water supply at from $26 to
1100 an acre Is perhaps Wyomln's best
offer to tho farmer. Such land can be
bought on easy .terms and from respon
sible parties either from ths stats It
self, from tha national government, or
from private Irrigation cornoratlona un

kind of proposition, "should talcs care

A great deal of buncombe ts talked and
believed about ths wonderful possibilities
or farming In new states like Wyoming.
The richness of the soil, ths contrast of
ths fertility with ths barrenness of the
desert, tha exhilaration of ths climate,
ths up-and-coming air of tho country, all
thess contrlbuts to the feeling that alfalfa
is only another nama for vegetable gold,
and that farming In the west Is a para
phrase for striking It fat and rich. Very
often. Indeed, Incited by ths glitter of
a railroad prospectus, settlers move as
some have moved Into Wyoming and
Idaho only to find Irrigation projects
half completed and Irrigation farming an
art which It takes at least a year to
learn. Then there Is ths chancs of your
land bleaching out temporarily Into
alkali, or the possibility of seepage
swamping your fields. There ars tho
Isolation and the enormous distances
ever with you. These ars some of the
difficulties which ths eager immigrant
either overlooks or else minimises. These,
coupled with Inexperience and little or
no money, turn back ths Incoming tide
now and again.
But for the man who knows ths differ
encs between a alio and a sickle and who
has, plus talents, $1,500 or $2,000 and a
year's worth of patience, an Irrigated
farm In Wyoming, as elsewhere, spells
Independence and a comfortable liveli
hood. To ths government project at
Powell, for example, settlers are coming
In slow, steady numbers. When ths
Shoshone tunnels ars driven the rush
will begin In that region In earnest.
"Ths first year," said one of thess
locators to tha writer, "is hard plugging.
Tou have to clear your ground, build
your bouse, barn and fences, buy your
livestock and machinery, and watch the
sun shine. But nobody ever goes back
east after he has stayed out his year."
Retreat of the Woolles.
As the farmers come In, Wyoming ths
wild and wooly, retreats to the moun
tains. This is literally true, particularly
with respect to ths woolles, for they,
together with the cattle, are driven in
summer up among the foothills to find
their range. In the mountains, too, ths
pals antelope" of Wlater's Virginian
lurk In vanishing numbers; there and In
Yellowstone park, which Is a game pre
serve feeder of wild game to the sur
rounding country, live the elk, bear, deer.
occasional wolves, mountain sheep and
Hon, and the smaller fry. Recently a
Connecticut Yankee wrote to the Immi
gration commission of Wyoming to find
out about ths trapping Industry, aa he
called It, He wanted to buy land where
ths coyotes were plenty wild or unim
proved tracts preferred. Incidentally,
he would like to shoot bear, cougar, wild
cats, lynx, moose and other animals
when they attacked his farm house. This
man's mental picture of Wyoming waa
that of T-year-old .boy with an air
gun and a refreshed Imagination. There
Is still much gams In Wyoming, but the
gams Is like all real game afraid and
timorous of men. This writer has ob
served the coyote and the terrible prairie
dog turn and ran to their respective com
fortable covers when confronted with
gentlemen of the press traveling through
ths sage brush, and he has whispered
boo to a black bear who cams to watch
the operation of a dressing. The bear
did not even last his tall. About the
farms the only nuisance Is the prairie
dogs, who undermine rabbit-like in in
solent fashion. But a certain brand of
poisoned stuff settles their hash quite
abruptly, and their dust fertilises the
dust of ths greening desert.
Amid these dangers the Wyoming
farmer struggles along. He raises three
or four crops of alfalfa a year, some
oats, wheat, apples, pears, berries, mel
ons, more alfalfa, and stock of various
kinds. Sheep and Schedule K are at his
back door, perpetually bleating. How
long its distress will last he Is not sure.
As things are now tha farmer raises
ths alfalfa to feed ths stock with, and
when the stock are grown he ships them
to the killing market via IoWa and
Illinois to be corn fattened. But just
as the ranges have given away to the
smaller farms and ranches so Is this de
tail about to be changed. The mutation
was wrought by ons man In a laboratory
with a greenhouse attachment. That man
is Professor H. C. Buffman, the Luther
B urban k of Wyoming. The story that
Is told to the agricultural tenderfoot Is
that hs has cross-bred the prairie dog
with alfalfa and got an edible muskrat.
That might bs so, but it Isn't. Hers
are the facts:
Buffum Is not In Who's Who. He Is a
plant breeder of considerable distinction,
formerly a stats official, but now engaged
In plant and seed breeding. In the course
of his experiments Buffum got bold of
winter smmer, a grain often wrongly
called spelt, which had recently been
Introduced Into the United States by the
United States Agricultural department.
It seemed a good grain to try out In
Wyoming, since as a rule winter grains
gtvs larger yields than those planted in
the spring and they can be more cheaply
produced and succeed better with less
moisture. By throwing tho winter emmer
Under unusual conditions of soil and
treatment. Its appearance, habit and con
stitution were so disturbed that several
mutations or "sports" were secured, and
these ars so far beyond the original that
one would hardly recognise the new
product. The new grain partakes of ths
nature of alfalfa and emmer. Some
single heads havs been grown which
weigh half an ounce. So prollflo la the
grain that in three seasons Buffum suc
ceeded in Increasing It from tha first
sporting plants to mors than 710 bushels,
threshing machine measure. It appears
to thrive on cold snd dryness. Its food
value and hers Is the revolutionary
aspect of tha esse Is that of corn. Of It
Buffum himself said: "It promises to
be ths most valuable feed grain ths
farmer or stockman can raise, sees
It should take the place of corn for
stock feeding in the western country,
where the cool nights or ths short sea
sons interfere with obtaining largs yields
of corn. It produces well where the
summers are so hot that ths weather
Interferes with ths growth of spring
grains. It Is good for cattle,
horses, sheep or swine."
Buffum Is a scientist and as a rule hs
does not go outside of his vocation. But
If you can get him In a corner as this
writer had ths chancs to do hs will
depart for a moment Into ths field of
economics and tell you what emmer will
do for the high lands of ths west llks
Wyoming. It emmer succeeds It will
mean that ths Intsnnounteln stock-raising
states will be dole to fstten their
own animals. Hitherto ths middle west,
the corn-raising states, have bad that
business. Within a few years this will
not be so. Emmer, growing on other
wise Idle land In ths cold months of ths
year, will be transferred by a simple
chewing process Into ltvs mtat. snd ths
mournful "beefs" hereafter will go direct
to ths slaughter house, not stopping off
for their usual Iowa respite. I told this.
