Omschrijving

Rolling R ranch lies down near the border of Mexico-near as distances are counted in Arizona.Possibly a hawk could make it in one flight straight across that jagged, sandy, spiney waste of scenerywhich the chance traveler visions the moment you mention southern Arizona, but if you wanted toride to the Border from the Rolling R corrals, you would find the trip a half-day proposition. As tothe exact location, never mind about that.The Selmer Stock Company had other ranches where they raised other animals, but the Rolling Rraised horses almost exclusively, the few hundred head of cattle not being counted as a real ranchindustry, but rather an incidental by-product. Rolling R Ranch was the place Sudden Selmer calledhome, although there was a bungalow out in the Wilshire District in Los Angeles about whichSudden would grumble when the tax notice came in his mail. There was a big touring car in thegarage on the back of the lot, and there was a colored couple who lived in two rooms of thebungalow for sake of the fire insurance and as a precaution against thieves, and to keep the lawnwatered and clipped and the dust off the furniture. They admitted that they had a snap, for theywere seldom disturbed in their leisurely caretaking routine save in the winter. Even Mary V alwaystired of the place after a month or two in it, and would pack her trunk and "hit the trail" for theRolling R.Speaking of Mary V, you would know that a girl with modern upbringing lived a good deal at theranch. You could tell by the low, green bungalow with wide, screened porches and light cream trim, that was almost an exact reproduction of the bungalow in Los Angeles. A man and woman whohave lived long together on a ranch like the Rolling R would have gone on living contentedly in theadobe house which was now abandoned to the sole occupancy of the boys. It is the young lady ofthe family who demands up-to-date housing.
