El Paso Herald, 7 May 1903
The typical cowgirl of the west - the personified spirit of the plains - is Miss Lucille Mulhall, the champion roper of the
Oklahoma range. And she is young, not yet out of school, and pretty, with the color of wind and sun-inspired health.
Miss Mulhall has the reputation of being able to ride the wildest bronco of the plains. She has ridden a wild steer - in her short dress days,
it is related, but she don't tell of that now. Her latest bid for fame was the roping of a wild coyote. It was
accomplished from the saddle with the coyote at a dead run. Miss Mulhall is the youngest daughter of Colonel Zack Mulhall, ranchman and
railroad man. She is mascot of the Mulhall cowboy band. She loves the big ranch near this city better than she does the Sacred Heart
convent where she is taught lessons, and far better than she does the city home to which she was taken every winter.
She is the pet of all old plainsmen at cattlemen's conventions, for they see in her the unusual woman - one who can appreciate their
point of view and brings to them more nearly than any young man has done, a renaissance of the days when barbed wire fences were not the
margin of activities in the cow business - Kansas City Journal.
