In order to illustrate the short story "Post Office at Dry Fork" by Hal G. Evarts in the November 3, 1928 issue of the Saturday Evening Post, Koerner used his studio props to represent the costume of cowboy Bud Crandall. The laconic cowboy with his small herd of cattle followed schoolteacher Miss Abby Howard from Wyoming town to Wyoming town.
