- Our sheep men who have their sheep located at Kelton and the surrounding country are having a very serious time. Fred Burton writes his sheep are in a sad state. He says they are dying about as fast as they can be counted. James Smith shipped two carloads of his home and says the others will pull through providing there is no more snow. Mr. Larkins, it is alleged, has been fortunate enough to procure hay out there and will feed his. Others who have their sheep on the western range are more fortunate. It is re-ported the sheep out there are doing well.
