A map drawn by Leeta Merle (Hitt) Biehler, age 12 from Collyer, Kansas, showing creeks, schools, ranches and the Saline River in Township 11 South, Range 25 West, Trego County. On a separate sheet, she includes a few sentences about the old Ochre Mines. This is one of several maps drawn by school children for a contest organized by Judge J. C. Ruppenthal of Russell, Kansas. The maps were to meet a "requirement of presenting historical data, together with excellence and accuracy of drawing." With this submission, Merle won the third prize of $1 in the map contest of 1909.
