THE KENTUCKY KERNEL KIT CARSON TELLS OF WYOMING EXPERIENCES sider. It Is a beautiful country In the summer lime; woods full of game from elk to skunks and the lakes nnd with fish. Hay crocks abounding grows wild and tho whole Forest Reserve Is nvnllablo for range. Every-boyowns a car nnd tho "Shimmy" has been bnrrcd. So much for tho nssets. I'm not in the real cstnto business this week, .so I will try to state tho drawbneks with equal frankness. To begin with, summer doesn't constitute much over n third of the year and they tell mo that In tho winter a Polnr bear needs snow shoos nnd car muffs. That means seven jnonths feeding. Again, tho nearest railroad is about 110 miles, so you see that It would bo almost impossible to get work on the "Section" through the dull season at home. All good land along tho railroad Is about gone. Now, of course, there's plenty open land closer in and at a lower elevation, but it is limited pretty well to sheep herding now and until some one finds a market for dry land and Prairie Dog pelts, It's liable to remain so. It's a long time before June and in that time I plan to locate and then will be able to give you some more definite dope. This country is undeveloped to a great extent and there is plenty going on. Outside of oil and cattle the most money would be in the restaurant business if all the Chinks would die. At present I'm able to keep a meal ticket on my person by working for the highway department here, that is, I'm waiting for the snow to get off of my ranch. d Letter of Interest To Those Wanting Land Grants Give my regards to friends and acquaintances and tell any of tho boys whose addresses I took and promised to write to not condemn me too hastily. Don't attend too many classes, they might got on your mind, you know. Write nnd also cncloso the bnscball schedule, Wildcats nnd Polecats, too. Sincerely, Daniel C.
