Lifelong Ambition Fulfilled Despite Civilization Advance DALLAS UP)—When Russell Thorp was a kid he wanted to be a stage coach driver like his dad. By the time he grew to young manhood the train had replaced the stage coach and Thorp became a cattleman instead. At 82 he is the oldest member of the American Cattlemen’s Assn. His career parallels a romantic era of cowmen versus homesteader cowman versus sheepman and frontier justice against the rust lers. He made his first roundup when of Misses Cohenaur, Monroe and i he was 15 and for more than 50 years he was a rancher and work ing cowboy. The Texas trail hands he met in his early days, he says, laid the foundation for the cattle busi ness in Wyoming. He believes it so much that he headed a cam paign which resulted in five monu ments being placed along the Tex as Trail as tribute to the Lone Star cowpokes who ran their herds to Wyoming in the 1880’s and 1890’s. But he kept his father’s stage coaches and gave one armored treasure coach to the Smithsonian KGDL KROSSWORD No. 8 THE HUMBLE SERVICE STATIONS & DEALERS IN THIS AREA ARE: L. M. BEAL 408 S.

The early days of the cattle business in Wyoming were filled with cattle rustling and frontier justice. In 1867 in Cheyenne vigil antes hung 8 rustlers, shot 4 try ing to escape and * sent several V others to prison, the leather cow man recalls. But the Wyoming Stock Growers Assn, never condoned such tactics is “dry gulching” suspected evil doers, which was the custom of the time. Thorp ran cattle in the Black Foot Indian Reservation of Mon tana and operated two ranches in Wyoming, one of them the Dam- fino Ranch, with as unusual a name as can be found in Western history. Thorp says he drew out a new brand in the dust one day just after the turn of the century and asked some of his cowboys what to call it. “Damned if I know” was the answer he got from all of them, :-o Damfino was its name. One of the Wyoming rancher’s favorite stories concerns a cow boy going by the name of James Murray in Wyoming in the early days. The cowpoke wrote Thorp, who then was an official of the Wyom ing Stock Growers Assn., and said he wanted to marry a schoolteach er but that he had shot a man in Texas and his real name wasn’t Murray. Would Thorp help him clear his name. Thorp contacted Texas Governor Hogg, who cleared the cowboy of blame so that he could take back his real name and marry his schoolteacher. The man, said Thorp, was James Dahlman, who was later to nom inate William Jennings Bryan for the presidency and who served as mayor of Omaha longer than any other man.
