Paint Sheep Black On the many sheep ranches one man and his shepherd dog has a band of 2500 sheep. Enough black sheep are born in the herd to make a ratio of about 1 to 100. If there are not enough nautral black sheep some of the white sheep are painted black. These black sheep are tne leaders and markers, that the herder counts every day. If one black sheep has strayed away, It Is a very close estimate that 150 white sheep strayed with him. The shepherd leads a solitary life, wlTh only his dog as his companion, and shorts visits with the ranch owner when the rations are brought to him. The sheptierds have a week to ton days off a year, during which time they i go to a nearby town, drink, get j drunk, and stay drunk during the entire time.

Another daughter, Mrs. Al Wagntr and husband and sun, Dwight, are occupying the Felt residence during their absence. Historic Fort The country is very mountain-like, and is covered with thin grass, sage brush and cactus. It takes from 30 to 60 acres of land to graz? one cow. However, the grass is harder and the food value more concentrated. Every year state agricultural students visit each ranch in the summer and plant grass to test the soil and find how much grass-grows in a square yard. It takes from ten to fifteen minutes to count the grass blades in these squares. A report is made to the government and the government in turn reports back to the ranch owner telling .him how many acres it will take to graze each animal. Wyoming has many artesian wells which throw water the size of a three inch pipe. Closer to the mountains there is snow and spring water. The federal government Is helping the grazers to preserve their water supply according to the size of the ranch, allowing a certain am ount to build large basin dams in river and creek water runs. The dams cost from $1200 to $1800. The dams hold a great volume of water for summer use for catfle and sheep. The artesian wells furnish the ranch houses with hot and cold running water the year around. Don't Woffy AWfot Moth Proofing is FREE.

Swea City Herald: Next year Iowa Is celebrating its centenary. Harvey Ingham's suggestion that tne sit« of Fort Schyler be marked as one of the undertakings of the centenary year U highly appropriate. There are uo markings in the neighborhood of the old fort, the aite of which is on the Howell /arm down the lake shore southwest from the Iowa lake store and garage. Some years ago we recall of correspondence with the Estherville and Fairmont chapters of the Daughters of the American Revolution concerning the old fort. At that time the D. A. R. women were engaged in marking the historic sites of this region, but nothing ever was done about Fort Scnuyler. Mr. Ingham in his small book entitled "Northern Border Brigade", which he wrote and had printed for private circulation, has constructed a written record of the fort, and the part it occupied in the activities of the Northern Iowa brigade organized to quiet the settlers who feared the Indians. Tom Sherman of Algona is also familiar with the story, and Clark Orton of Algona is another student of the Indian lore of this region. Altogether it should be easy not only to mark the site, but to retell the story of the old fortification as a part of next year's centenary activities. Binoculars Used In War Are Handy Tom Sherman has a letter which he prizes highly. It was written to him by President Roosevelt when the latter waa assistant secretary of the navy during the war. It waa sent to Mr. Sherman to thank him for the loan of some binocular* which were used in tne navy and later returned to him. The binoculars have been loaned to Dud Mc- Donaid to s*» tb» NoU« Dame- Minnesota football game Saturday and w* trust they will com* through tne gam* as safely as they did tit* war. ' • • ' - ..
