The delivery and marketing of this product in the fall and winter to the railroad, naturally creates a period of activity in business of all kinds. is the stockman's para- dise. The specially nutritious grasses and the mild, open ters permit 'easy and inexpensive cattle and horse raising, so that the annual output of stock is a great factor in the prosperity of the country. In natural resources the dis- trict is particularly fortunate. Innumerable coal mines are in operation, and mostly on a small but large companies are enlisting capital to operate on an extensive scale as the product is equal to any of the bituminous coal on the market, and the prospect for the unlimited dispos- al of the output is the best since the construction of the large transcontinental roads. The sup- i ply has been pronounced by ex- 1 perts to be practically boundless. Ontcroppings of .coal can be i seen; along the banks of almost i. any of the streams back in the j A great deal of development! work has been done near by Pe- 1 troleum experts and finan- cial .men are always enthusiastic about results, as signs and indi- cations and seepages have been most favorable.

It is, however, the inten- are backed up with such resourc- tion'of the parties interested in such an area, A conserya- j tive and well advised estimate of the amount of shipping from this point is about five or she hundred cars annually. The pressing need of this dis- trict and town is better railway facilities. If the town and dis-1 trict has developed into a pro- gressive and prosperous com- munity in the absence of proper .railway accommodation it only requires a second thought to pic- ture a very growing and thriv- ing locality, when close railway fjonnection is gireiu Any one tak- ing up this work actively would find a good proposition before him.
