The Elwood Emmett family planned an overnight camping trip near the Bucking Mule Creek area Sunday night. A wet Monday made their return trip impossible, so Emmett hiked to the highway and caught a ride to town that evening. Two of the Emmett children, Allen and Alvin, have nearly completed their Eagle Scout requirements, according to relatives who said the boys had built a shelter and used their knowledge to make the family more comfortable.

The Cowley Progress

While at the Midland Empire Fair at Billings this week the Progress bunch was delighted with the magnificent horticultural display in the elegantly arranged and conspicuously placed booth of Big Horn County – not Big Horn County, Montana, but Big Horn County, Wyoming. There displayed in the most elegant array was Big Horn County’s horticultural stock. We were tickled pink to see our county’s display tagged with a first prize tag and blue ribbons on nearly each individual display. It was truly wonderful.
