P. L. Krouse Lincoln County, New Mexico

P. L. Krouse, who is engaged in mining at Alto, became a resident of Lincoln County, New Mexico, in 1887. In 1883 he had settled near Seven Rivers, where he took up a ranch and engaged in cattle-raising until 1887, when he came to Lincoln County and secured government contracts for building and repairing. When his work in that" direction was completed he turned his attention to mining interests at Parsons and Eagle Creek, developed the Hopewell mine and other properties, carrying on business for the White Mountain Mining Company. He has now for a number of years been actively associated with the development of the mineral resources of New Mexico and his practice, experience and knowledge well qualify him for this task.

Mr. Krouse made a creditable record as a soldier of the federal army in the Civil war, serving as captain of Company E, Fourth Kentucky Cavalry. He took part in Morgan's raid and in the battles of Fort Donelson, Fort Henry, Pittsburg Landing, Lookout Mountain and other important and sanguinary engagements, and was three times wounded. In matters of citizenship he has ever been loyal and progressive, and in business has displayed keen insight into conditions and a thorough understanding of possibilities that have led him to recognize the advantages that New Mexico affords and to ally his interests with the work of development and upbuilding here.
