One of Wyoming’s most romantic gold stories was that brought back by two trappers from the Big Horn Mountains. These men had been prospecting with a party of five when they came across ground bearing a layer of gold only 5 feet down. They started digging it up at once and had built a cabin and mined several thousand dollars worth when the Indians attacked. Only two men wandered out alive and with the gold, and theey were in such a hurry to escape the Indian that they lost their way. They reached Fort Laramie alive and with there gold to prove the truth of their find, but were unable to find their way back to the cabin the following spring. Shortly after they, and what little they new of the site of the Lost Cabin gold placers, died at the hand of the Indians. Several expeditions have attempted to find the gold field, but all have failed.

Save energy; save money. Homemakers can help ease the energy crises by saving some electricity at the kitchen range, and at the same time reduce their own utility bills. Boiling on a low setting generally will take only about a fourth as much electricity as boiling on high. What you do manually by turning down the heat to low after the desired temperature is reached will happen automatically on those ranges equipped with a thermostatically controlled surface unit. Using less water for cooking vegetables, along with simple practice of turning down the heat of the unit, can result in a substantial energy savings. For example, cooking potatoes or some other vegetable in three cups of water on high heat setting for the whole period will take three times as much energy as using only one cup of water and turning the heat lower, once boiling is reached.
