Crooks probably has more personal items than the other ranch hands for a number of reasons. First, he doesn't share space. He gets a room to himself because the other workers don't want to bunk with a black man. There's also a good chance he puts away more of his money enabling to buy things..... he doesn't join the man in bars or at the whorehouses, thus, he is able to save more. Crooks has also had the same job for a number of years.
