She is an exuberant product of the Oklahoma prairie who can toss a rope over the horns of a fleeing steer ride the most obstreperous "bucker" or bring down wild beast or bird with the skill and speed of the cow- boy. Miss Miller is western to her finger tips. She is a graduate of an eastern seminary, but returned home with a fine scorn for eastern life and luxuries. Most of Miss Miller's hours were heretofore spent in the saddle gallop- ing over the vast sweeps of fertile acres of the 101 Ranch. She requir- ed no guide, companion or protector in her long, lonely ramblings. She fears nothing except the man with a "biled" shirt, and the prairies knows him not. The cowboys believe that Miss Miller can make her coiffure as carelessly and as expeditiously on the back of a madly galloping horse as in the dainty boudoir of her cottage home. X. When the Miller Brother loaded their horses and buffaloes and long- horn Texas steers on railroad cars and gave the summons for cowboys and co wgirJ.s and Indians to clamber aboard, Miss Miller was not be left behind. She has entered enthus- iastically into the spirit of the tour. She is the merriest figure in the fun and frolic of the arena and the cool- est participant in the serious mom- ents of the varied portrayals of west era. life and history. The morning parades are her glory and delight. There, is no more pleasant memory in all the 101 Ranch Wild West Show than of this fresh and lovely femin- ine figure. articles for mailing to distant friends such as LETHBRIDGE SOUVENIR BOOK- LETS, PHOTO PO'ST CARDS OF LETHBRIDGE AND VICINITY. .TUCK'S FINE ART CALENDARS IVORY AND EMBOSSED CHRIST- MAS CARDS BU-RiNT LEATHER SOUVENIRS.
