The Cattleman's Pages of History
We are now in the 105th year of publication of The Cattleman magazine. Each month, we take a few minutes to look back in history to find the interests of cattle raisers at the time. We have reprinted the text of these items as it appeared in the issue.
‘Oh yes,’ replied the drummer, ‘You’ll find him dead when you return home; I was over there yesterday. And, by the way, how much will you take for the hide, I would like to have it to send back home?’ ‘Well, I guess it ought to be worth about $10.00,’ said the Judge. The drummer paid the $10.00 and they walked over to the telegraph station where the Judge wired his son to skin the bear and ship the hide on the first train.
“Judge Bean did not learn that the bear was not dead when he sold the hide until he returned home. The drummer thought it was a fine joke, but he never stopped off to talk it over with the Judge after that.”
