Ira Burnett, a large cattle owner near here, has returned from a trip over ais range aud reports that no cattle Save been killed by fire or the boomers. Ele estimates the number of acres Surnod over to be at least but ;hmk9 that enough grass remains to Feed the cattle until grass sprouts. Burnett reports that the colonists are on their way out of the strip in great numbers and expresses the opinion that jut few would be left for the military displace. Lieutenant Dodge, of General Mer- ritt's Staff, who has arrived here, says tie thinks most of the boomers now lo- ated upon the strip will vacate volun- tarily when they learn the condition of affairs.
