A." herd until It has become known as the best In Texas. At all big stock shows her cattle have won first prizes. Mrs. Adair was a native of New York, the daughter of MnJ. Gen. James S. Wadworth of Geneseo. She married John Adair, an Irishman. In the early "70 ami went with him to Colorado. Mrs. Adair, her husband. Mrs. Mary Goodnight, wife of her husband's partner, and a score of cowboys made the journey from Pueblo. Colo., to the Texas ranch overland, driving a herd of cattle through a country menaced both by Tndlans and wild nnlmnls and where water holes were few. When within a short dis-tnnee of their destination It was a gamble whether the entire party and an'mals would die from thirst. The horses the men and women rode shambled along exhausted and the cattle were dropping out almost every minute. A small stream was found tn the nick of time, members of the party reaching It one by one and almost pone. They reached the site of the "J. A." ranch next day. then a barren trnct of land. Two shanties were built In which Mrs. Adair and Mrs. Goodnight lived for several years.
