    "The Ranch and the Range"

    Clarence Gano returned yesterday from Estado ranch, in Presidio County. It had not rained when he left there, but he was in possession of information to the effect that since his departure heavy and thoroughly soaking rains have fallen. Mr. Gano says that there was great suffering in the valley before the rain, and that many herds were taken to Sonora and Chihuahua and to New Mexico in search of grass and water. Most of the deaths were among free grasss cattle, that is, among cattle on the open range. Those who occupy leased lands selected their pastures with an eye to grass and water, and as a matter of course their cattle stood the drouth better than those that had to rustle. Mr. Gano is buoyant and thinks the business will boom from now on.

    "Herds, Flocks and Droves"

    Clarence Gano has returned from the Indian Territory. He reports that all the cattlemen who took their steers to the nation in the springwith a view of maturing them on the virgin rangesthereof are satisfied with the results, for the steers have fattened beyond all expectation, and they will repeat the operation on even a great scale next year. Mr. Gano has sold his steers. They were in excellent condition, and he received a good figure for them. He is now on the market for all the steers he can get. He will winter them on his Texas ranch and remove them to the nation as soon as the grass starts next year to be matured.
