Editor’s Note: This is one of a series of journal entries dictated by James P. Beckwourth, an adventurer, explorer, scout, hunter, trapper, pioneer, emigrant and, for a time, Indian Chief of the Crows.
The narrative is almost amusing in that hardy pioneers did not really talk in such elegant terms. Clearly, T. D. Bonner, who writes this biography, has exercised considerable ‘poetic license’ in describing the adventures in such elegant prose. Here, then, more in the continuing saga describing the trek out West by James P. Beckwourth: (When we last left the journal, Mr. Beckwourth had entered an Indian Trading Post. When the agent determined he had been in St. Louis for some time he said, “Then your are not a Crow?” “No, I am not,” said Beckwourth. The story resumes:)
"Then what may be your name?"
"My name in English is James Beckwourth."
"Good heavens! why I have heard your name mentioned a thousand times. You were supposed dead, and were so reported by Captain Sublet." "I am not dead, as you see; I still move and breathe."
"This explains the mystery," he added, turning to the clerk, "of those beaver-skins being marked 'J. B.' Well, well! if you are not a strange mortal!"
All this conversation was unintelligible to my Crow brethren, who were evidently proud to see a Crow talk, so fluently to the white man. "Now," I said, "I have seen you transact your business without interposing with a word. You have cleared two or three thousand per cent of your exchanges. I do not grudge it you. Were I in your place I should do the same. But I want a little more liberal treatment. I have toiled hard for what I have obtained, and I want the worth of my earnings."
I set my own price upon my property, and, to the great astonishment of my Indian brethren, I returned with as large a bale of goods as theirs would all together amount to. But, as I have said, an Indian is in no wise envious, and, instead of considering themselves

unfairly used, they rejoiced at the white man's profusion to me, and supposed the overplus he had given me was an indemnity for the captivity they had held me in.
On our return I made various presents to all my wives, some of whom I did not see for months together, and to many other relatives. I had still a good stock to trade upon, and could exchange with my brethren at any rate I offered. They placed implicit confidence in my integrity, and a beaver-skin exchanged with me for one plug of tobacco contented them better than to have exchanged it for two with the white man. I had the fairest opportunity for the acquisition of an immense fortune that ever was placed in man's way. By saying one word to the tribe I could have kept the white trader forever out of their
territory, and thus have gained the monopoly of the trade of the entire nation for any term of years. That I am not now in possession of a fortune equal to that of an Astor or a Girard is solely the fault of my own indolence, and I do not to this moment see how I came to neglect the golden opportunity.
While returning from the tradingpost, we fell in with a party of about two hundred and fifty Cheyenne warriors, to oppose whom we numbered but two hundred warriors, besides being encumbered with a still greater number of women. As good fortune would have it, they attacked us in the daytime, while we were moving; whereas, had they but waited till we were encamped, and our horses turned out, I do not see how we could have escaped defeat. In traveling, every warrior led his war-horse

by his side, with lance and shield attached to the saddle.
The enemy was first seen by one of our scouts at some little distance from the main body. On seeing they were discovered, they gave chase to him, and continued on until they came upon our whole party. Every man transferred himself to his war-horse, and was instantly ready to receive them. They advanced upon our line, were received without wavering, and finally driven back. It was now our turn to attack. We charged furiously with our whole force, completely sweeping every thing from before us, and killing or disabling at least fifty of the enemy. They rallied and returned, but the reception they met with soon put them to rout, and they fled precipitately into the timber, where we did not care to follow them.

‘The Indian Wars’ Cont. from Page 1 Our loss was severe: nine warriors killed and thirteen wounded, including myself, who had received an arrow in the head — not so serious, however, as to prevent me doing duty. We also lost one pack-horse, laden with goods, but no scalps. We took eleven scalps upon the field, and the Cheyennes afterward confessed to the loss of fifty-six warriors. When we lost a horse in the action, the women would immediately supply its place with a fresh one. We were nearly two hundred miles from home, and we carried our dead all the way thither. On arriving at home, I found my father greatly irritated. He had lost two hundred and fifty head of horses from his own herd, stolen by the Black Feet, who had raised a general contribution from the whole village. His voice was still for war, and he insisted on giving immediate chase. I dissuaded him from his intention, representing to him his advanced years, and promising to go myself and obtain satisfaction for his losses. He reluctantly consented to this arrangement; but, four or five days after my departure on the errand, his medicine became so strong that he started off with a party, taking an opposite direction to the one I had gone on. My party consisted of two hundred and twenty good warriors, and my course lay for the head-waters of the Arkansas, in the Arrap-a-ho country.
We fell in with no enemies on our way until we arrived at a village which contained upward of one hundred lodges. We formed our plans for assaulting the place the next day, when we discovered four white men, whom we surrounded. The poor fellows thought their last day was come, and I was amused to overhear their conversation. "They will surely kill us all," said one. “In what manner will they kill us?" asked another.
"They may burn us," suggested a third.
Then they communed among themselves, little thinking there was one overhearing them who sympathized with every apprehension they expressed.
They summed up their consultation by one saying, "If they attempt to kill us, let us use our knives to the best advantage, and sell our lives as dearly as possible." "Gentlemen," said I, "I will spare you that trouble."
"Great God!" they exclaimed, "Mr. Beckwourth, is that you?"
"Yes," I replied, "that is my name. You are perfectly safe, but you must not leave our camp till tomorrow." "For what reason?" they inquired.
“Because there is a village close by which we mean to assault at day-
break, and we do not wish our design to be known."
"Oh," said they, "we should not communicate your designs, and we did not even know of the village." They then poured out before me a whole sea of misfortunes. They had been trapping — had met with very good success; the Indians had stolen their horses; in attempting to cross the river by means of a badly-constructed raft, the raft had fallen to pieces, and they had lost every thing — peltry, guns, and ammunition. They were now making their way to New Mexico, with nothing to eat and no gun to kill game with. They were among Indians, and were two or three hundred miles from the nearest settlements of New Mexico. I entertained them well while they staid, and, after our assault in the morning, I gave them two guns and twenty rounds of ammunition, and counseled them to take advantage of the surprise of the Indians to make good their escape. One of the four afterward informed me that they reached the settlements in safety, having killed a buffalo and a deer on the way.
We made the assault as appointed. We were mounted on horses we had taken from the village during the night, as Indians go on horse-stealing expeditions on foot. I divided my force into two bodies, giving my principal scout the command of one. I gave orders to run off their horses without risking a battle, if no opposition were offered; but, if they showed fight, to kill whatever came in their way. The Arrap-a-hos are very poor warriors, but on this occasion they defended themselves with commendable zeal and bravery. We were, however, compelled to kill fourteen of them, for our own security, before we could get their horses well started. On our side we had four wounded; and if they had not delayed to scalp the fallen Indians, that might have been avoided. We succeeded in driving away over sixteen hundred horses, all well conditioned, with which we arrived safely at home. My father also returned about the same time with near three thousand head, all superior animals. The Bull's Robe family had certainly done wonders, and we were entertained to the greatest feast I had ever seen. The whole village was illuminated with numerous feux de joie, and such dancing was never known before. I received another addition to my list of titles in commemoration of this event, Is-ko-chu-e-chu-re, the Enemy of Horses.
A feud now broke out, which had been long brewing, between two different parties in our village, one of which worshiped foxes, and the other worshiped dogs. The warriors of the latter party were called Dog Soldiers, of which I was the leader; the other party was led by Red Eyes. The quarrel originated about the prowess of the respective parties, and was fostered by Red Eyes, on the part of the rival company, and by Yellow Belly (in Indian A-re-sheres), a man in my company. This A-re-she-res was as brave an
Indian as ever trod the plain, but he was also a very bad Indian — that is, he was disagreeable in his manners, and very insulting in his conversation.
Red Eyes was equally brave, but of a different disposition. His was a reserved pride; the braggadocio of A-re-she-res offended him. This rivalry developed into an open rupture, and the pipe-men were obliged to interfere to prevent open hostilities. At length it was proposed, in order to cement a final peace between the two warriors, that each should select from his own party a certain number of men, and go and wage common war against some enemy — the question of bravery to be decided by the number of scalps brought in on each side. Red Eyes accordingly chose from his party eighteen of the best men, himself making the nineteenth — men who would suffer death rather than show their backs to the enemy. A-re-she-res, with his accustomed fanfaronade, said, "I can beat that party with less men; I will only take sixteen men, and bring in more scalps than they."
He came to me and said, "Enemy of Horses, I want you to go with me and die with me. It is of no use for you to stay with this people; they are not brave any longer. Come with me, and we will enter the spirit land together, where the inhabitants are all brave. There is better hunting ground in the country of the Great Spirit. Come!" I replied I would rather not go on such an errand. I have women to live for, and defend against the enemies of the Crows; that when I fought I wished to destroy the enemy and preserve my own life. "That," said I, "is bravery and prudence combined."
"Ah!" answered he, "you a leader of the Dog Soldiers, and refuse to go! There are prettier women in the land of the Great Spirit than any of your squaws, and game in much greater abundance. I care nothing about my life: I am ready to go to the land of the Great Spirit. You must go with me; perhaps your medicine will save not only yourself, but all of us. If so, it will be so much the better."
I, not wishing to be thought cowardly, especially by A-re-she-res, at length consented to accompany him, on the condition that he would stifle all harsh feeling against our brethren, and, let our expedition result as it would, accept the decision in good faith, and never refer to the past. "It is well," he said; “let it be as your words speak."
The two parties started on different routes to the Cheyenne country. I regarded it as a foolhardy enterprise, but if it resulted in the establishment of peace, I was contented to take part in it, at whatever personal sacrifice. We used every precaution against a surprise, and A-re-she-res willingly adapted his movements to my counsel; for, though he was as brave as a lion, and fought with the utmost desperation, he was very inconsiderate of consequences, and had no power of calculating present combinations to
come at a desired result.
After traveling about twenty days, we arrived at a considerable elevation, from whence we could see, at some distance on the prairie, about thirty of the enemy engaged in killing buffalo. We could also see their village at a distance of three miles. "There is an opportunity," said Are-she-res; “now let us charge these Indians in the open prairie."
"No, no," I replied; "there are too many of them; the Cheyennes are brave warriors; if you wish to carry home their scalps, we must get into their path and waylay them; by that means we shall kill many of them, and run less risk of our own lives. We shall gain more honor by preserving the lives of our warriors, and taking back the scalps of the enemy, than by sacrificing our lives in a rash and inconsiderate charge." "Your words are true," said he, "and we will do as you say."
"Then," added I, "turn your robes the hair side out, and follow me."
We wound our way down the trail through which they must necessarily pass to reach their village, and kept on until we reached a place where there were three gullies worn by the passage of the water. Through the centre gully the trail passed, thus leaving a formidable position on each side, in which an ambuscade had ample concealment. I divided my party, giving the command of one division to A-re-she-res. We took our stations in the ditches on each side the trail, though not exactly opposite to each other. I directed the opposite party not to fire a gun until they should hear ours, and then each man to take the enemy in the order of precedence. The unsuspecting Cheyennes, as soon as they had finished butchering and dressing the buffalo, began to approach us in parties of from three to eight or ten, their horses loaded with meat, which they were bearing to the village. When there were about a dozen abreast of my party, I made a signal to fire, and nine Cheyennes fell before our balls, and eight before those of A-re-she-res's party. Some few of the enemy who had passed on, hearing the guns; returned to see what the matter was, and three of them became victims to our bullets. We all rushed from our hiding-places then, and some fell to scalping the prostrate foe, and some to cutting the lashings of the meat in order to secure the horses, the remainder keeping the surviving enemy at bay. Having taken twenty scalps, we sprang upon the horses we had freed from their packs, and retreated precipitately, for the enemy was coming in sight in great numbers. We made direct for the timber, and, leaving our horses, took refuge in a rocky place in the mountain, where we considered ourselves protected for a while from their attacks. To storm us in front they had to advance right in the face of our bullets, and to reach us in the rear they had to take a circuitous route of several

miles round the base of the mountain. The enemy evinced the utmost bravery, as they made repeated assaults right up to the fortification that sheltered us. Their bullets showered around us without injury, but we could bring down one man at every discharge. To scalp them, however, was out of the question. During the combat a great Cheyenne brave, named Leg-inthe-water, charged directly into our midst, and aimed a deadly thrust with his lance at one of our braves. The warrior assailed instantly shivered the weapon with his battle-axe, and inflicted a ghastly wound in his assailant's shoulder with a second blow. He managed to escape, leaving his horse dead in our midst.
By this time we were encompassed with the enemy, which induced the belief in our minds that retreat would be the safest course. None of our party was wounded except A-re-she-res, who had his arm broken with a bullet between the shoulder and elbow. He made light of the wound, only regretting that he could no longer discharge his gun; but he wielded his battle-axe with his left hand as well as ever. When night came on we evacuated our fortress, unperceived by our enemies. They, deeming our escape impossible, were quietly resting, intending to assault us with their whole force in the morning, and take our scalps at

A Royal Tale . . .
Once upon a time there was a king who wanted to go fishing.
He called the royal weather forecaster and inquired as to the weather forecast for the next few hours.
The weatherman assured him that there was no chance of rain in the coming days. So the king went fishing with his wife, the queen. On the way he met a farmer on his donkey. Upon seeing the king the farmer said, "Your Majesty, you should return to the palace at once because in just a short time I expect a huge amount of rain to fall in this area."
The king was polite and considerate, he replied: "I hold the
all hazards. Moving with the stealth of a cat, we proceeded along the summit of a rocky cliff until we came to a cleft or ravine, through which we descended from the bluff to the bottom, which was covered with a heavy growth of timber. We then hastened home, arriving there on the twentyeighth day from the time we left. They had given us over for lost; but when they saw us returning with twenty scalps, and only one of our party hurt, their grief gave way to admiration, and we were hailed with shouts of applause.
Our rival party, under Red Eyes, had returned five or six days previously, bringing with them seventeen scalps, obtained at the loss of one man. Our party was declared the victor, since we had taken the greater number of scalps, with the weaker party, and without loss of life, thus excelling our rivals in three several points. Red Eyes cheerfully acknowledged himself beaten, good feeling was restored, and the subject of each other's bravery was never after discussed. We had still another advantage, inasmuch as we could dance, a celebration they were deprived of, as they had lost a warrior; they, however, joined our party, and wanted nothing in heartiness to render our dance sufficiently boisterous to suffice for the purpose of both. All the dancing is performed in the open air, with the solid ground for a floor. It consists of jumping up and down, intermixed

So he continued on his way. However, a short time later a torrential rain fell from the sky. The King and Queen were totally soaked and their entourage chuckled upon seeing them in such a shameful condition. Furious, the king returned to the palace and gave the order to fire the weatherman at once! Then he summoned the farmer and offered him the prestigious and high paying role of royal forecaster. The farmer said, "Your Majesty, I do not know anything about forecasting. I obtain my information from my donkey. If I see my donkey's ears drooping, it means with certainty that it will rain." So the king hired the donkey.
And so began the practice of hiring asses to work in the government and occupy its highand most influential positions. FaceBook Explained

We went along without noteworthy occurrence until the following March, when we moved from the western to the eastern side of what was at that time called Tongue River Mountain, one of the peaks of the Rocky Mountain chain. The buffaloes had receded from the environs of our old camping-ground, and had been attracted to the region whither we removed in consequence of the grass being in a more forward state.
Our community numbered ten thousand souls — men, women, and children — together with an immense number of horses. In crossing the mountain, we found the snow to be of so great depth, being farther increased with a three days' recent storm, that the mountain was impassable. In this severe journey, which occupied three days, we had twelve hundred horses perish in the snow. Previously, the Black Feet had stolen eight hundred head, and we were in no condition to follow them, as we were all engaged in packing up for removal. We reached the prairie, on the eastern side of the mountain, after a

toilsome journey, and found good camping-ground on Box Elder Creek. The morning following our arrival we started on a surround, in parties of fifty and upward, as our whole population was without meat. I rode a pack-horse, and three of my wives were with me, each leading a saddle-horse. I had not proceeded far before I heard a noise that sounded very much like a war-hoop. I stopped my horse to listen. Those near me said it was a signal from one of the parties, who had discovered buffalo, and we proceeded on our journey. Soon, however, I heard the yell again, and I became satisfied there was something more than buffalo astir. I rode to a small eminence close by, and descried a party of our hunters at a distance making signals for others to succor them. I turned back to my wives, and dispatched two of them to the village for my war instruments, and then galloped on to ascertain the cause of the alarm. Not more than fifty of our warriors were then before me.
I then learned that they had before them a party of one hundred and sixty Black Foot warriors, who had thrown themselves into an apparently impregnable fortress. It was a stronghold manifestly thrown up in some of Nature's grand convulsions, it would seem, for the very purpose to which it was now applied. It was a huge mass of granite, forming a natural wall in front of a graduated height, varying from twenty-five feet to six feet, the

lowest part; it was solid, and nearly perpendicular all round.
There was in our camp a young Kentuckian named Robert Mildrum, naturally a brave fellow, though he seldom went out in the war parties; but when the village was assaulted, he always fought like a tiger. He was a good trapper and a skillful blacksmith, and had been out in the employ of the American Fur Company. I met him while we were surveying the enemy's stronghold.
I said to him, "Mildrum, if the adage is true, there is policy in war. These Indians make no question of our bravery; had we not better resign to them the brunt of this encounter, and not expose our lives in a cause that we have no concern in? How do you intend to act?" “As for me," said Mildrum, "I must be in the fray. If we are to see any fun, I want my share of the entertainment." "Well," said I, "I shall endeavor to keep by you."
The Indians had by this time assembled to the number of from five to seven hundred, and were watching the fort indecisively, awaiting instructions from the chief. Many had succeeded in running and sheltering under the wall, while several had been shot in making the attempt. I ran to the wall to reconnoitre it, and soon saw there were two ways in which it could be taken; one was by bombardment, and the other was by storm. Bombardment was out of the question, as our heaviest calibre was a rifle-bore. I waited to see what steps would be taken.
Long Hair, the head chief of the nation, said, "Warriors, listen! Our marrow-bones are broken; the enemy has chosen a strong fort; we can not drive them from it without sacrificing too many men. Warriors, retreat !"
I replied, "No; hold! Warriors, listen ! If these old men can not fight, let them retire with the women and children. We can kill every one of these Black Feet: then let us do it. If we attempt to run from here, we shall be shot in the back, and lose more warriors than to fight and kill them all. If we get killed, our friends who love us here will mourn our loss, while those in the spirit land will sing and rejoice to welcome us there, if we ascend to them dying like braves. The Great Spirit has sent these enemies here for us to slay; if we do not slay them, he will be angry with us, and will never suffer us to conquer our enemies again. He will drive off all our buffaloes, and will wither the grass on the prairies. No, warriors! we will fight as long as one of them survives. Come, follow me, and I will show you how the braves of the great white chief fight their enemies!" "Enemy of Horses," exclaimed hundreds of the brave and impatient warriors who were crowded round me, "lead us, and we will follow you to the spirit land."
Accepting the charge, I stationed a large body of those who were never known to flinch on one side of the position, which I, with my followers, intended to scale. I thus thought to engage the attention of the enemy until we made good our entrance, when I felt no longer doubtful of success. I then told them as I threw up my shield the third time, and shouted "Hoo-kihi," they were to scale the wall as fast as possible, and beat down whatever resistance might be offered them.
I had divested myself of all my weapons except my battle-axe and scalping-knife, the latter being attached to my wrist with a string. I then made the signal, and when I raised the shout "Hooki-hi," the party opposite began to hoist one another up. When I sprang for the summit of the wall, I found that my women were holding my belt; I cut it loose with my knife, and left it in their hands. I was the first on the wall, but was immediately followed by some scores of warriors. The enemy's whole attention, when we entered the arena, was directed to the opposite party, and we had time to cut numbers down before they were aware of our entrance. The carnage for some minutes was fearful, and the Black Feet fought with desperation, knowing their inevitable doom if taken. The clash of battle-axes, and the yells of the opposing combatants were truly appalling. Many leaped the wall only to meet their certain doom below, where hundreds of battle-axes and lances were ready to drink their blood as soon as they touched ground. The interior surface of this huge rock was concave, and the blood all ran to the centre, where it formed a pool, which emitted a sickening smell as the warm vapor ascended to our nostrils. It was also a work of great difficulty to keep one's feet, as the mingled gore and brains were scattered every where round this fatal place. The blood of the Crow and the Black Foot mingled together in this common pool, for many of our warriors fell in this terrible strife.
All was silent within a few minutes after we had gained an entrance. Victims who were making away with their bowels ripped open were instantly felled with the battle-axe and stilled in death. The wounded were cared for by their friends, and the dead removed from sight. Upward of forty Crows were killed, and double the number wounded. There were engaged on the side of the Crows about twenty white men, and only one was wounded, though nearly all scaled the wall with the Indians. Mildrum was seriously injured by leaping from the heights after an Indian, but he soon recovered.
Our spoils were one hundred and sixty scalps, and an immense quantity of guns and ammunition, a large amount of dried meats, with arrows, lances, knives, in great abundance.
Here an incident happened with my little wife and mother worth mentioning. They were seated outside, and under the wall, when Owl Bear, one of the chiefs, happening to pass, asked the girl if she was not the wife of the Enemy
of Horses. She answered that she was.
"I thought so," he said, "because you are such a pretty little squaw; but you have no husband now; he was shot through the head in the fort, and instantly killed; and here you are playing with sticks!"
The poor thing, together with her mother, screamed out at the intelligence, and, seizing a battle-axe, each cut off a finger. The girl then stabbed her forehead with a knife, and was instantly dripping with blood. The chief came laughing to me, and said, "That little wife of yours loves you better than any of your other wives." "How do you know?" I inquired.
"Because I told them all you were dead, and she was the only one that cut off a finger;" and he laughed aloud as he passed on.
Soon, however, she climbed the wall, and forced her way into the fort, and came directly to me. She presented a sickening spectacle, and was covered entirely with blood. Seeing me, she burst into tears, and as soon as she could articulate, said, "Why, you are not dead, after all! Owl Bear told me you were killed, and I came to seek your body." "Who are you mourning for?" I asked; "is your brother or father scalped?"
"No; I mourned because I thought you were killed; Owl Bear told me you were."
"You must not believe all you hear," I said; "some Indians have crooked tongues. But come and spread your robe, and carry this gun and spoils of my first victim to the village, and there wash your face and bind up your finger." She did as I directed her, and departed.
As soon as we had collected all the trophies bequeathed us by our fallen foes, and gathered all our own dead, we moved back to the new camp. On our way, I exerted myself to the utmost to console the afflicted mourners. I told them that their friends were happy in the spirit land, where there were no enemies to fight, where all was everlasting contentment, and where they were happy in endless amusement. I said that in a few days I would avenge the fall of our warriors, and depart for that peaceful land myself.
I could plainly see that this last promise afforded them more satisfaction than all my other consoling remarks; but I disliked to see their horrid fashion of mourning, and my promise of future victory speedily washed their faces of their present grief; for a promise from me was confided in by all the tribe. There was, of course, no dancing, for we had lost too many warriors; but in the evening there was great visiting throughout the village, to talk over the events of the day, and hear the statements of those who had taken part in the battle. Long Hair came to the lodge of my father to congratulate me on my great feat in scaling the wall, and to talk of the victory of his people achieved through my
valor. All who were present related the deeds they had performed. As each narrated his exploits, all listened with profound attention. While this was going on, my little wife, who sat near by, crawled behind me, and, whispering in my ear, inquired if I had obtained any coos (coups). These coos she inquired after are the same as counts in a game of billiards: the death of one warrior counts as one; of two warriors counts as two; every battle-axe or gun taken counts one to the victor's merit. I said I had not, at which she looked aghast. But when the question was put to me by the chief shortly after, I answered "Eleven." On this she administered eleven taps on my back with her finger, and again whispered, "Ah! I thought your tongue was crooked when you told me you had no coos." All the coos are registered in the great medicine lodge in favor of the brave who wins them. I trust that the reader does not suppose that I waded through these scenes of carnage and desolation without some serious reflections on the matter. Disgusted at the repeated acts of cruelty I witnessed, I often resolved to leave these wild children of the forest and return to civilized life; but before I could act upon my decision, another scene of strife would occur, and the Enemy of Horses was always the first sought for by the tribe. I had been uniformly successful so far; and how I had escaped, while scores of warriors had been stricken down at my side, was more than I could understand. I was well aware that many of my friends knew of the life I was leading, and I almost feared to think of the opinions they must form of my character. But, in justification, it may be urged that the Crows had never shed the blood of the white man during my stay in their camp, and I did not intend they ever should, if I could raise a voice to prevent it. They were constantly at war with tribes who coveted the scalps of the white man, but the Crows were uniformly faithful in their obligations to my race, and would rather serve than injure their white brethren without any consideration of profit. In addition to this, Self-interest would whisper her counsel. I knew I could acquire the riches of Crœsus if I could but dispose of the valuable stock of peltry I had the means of accumulating. I required but an object in view to turn the attention of the Indians to the thousands of traps that were laid by to rust. I would occasionally use arguments to turn them from their unprofitable life, and engage them in peaceful industry. But I found the Indian would be Indian still, in spite of my efforts to improve him.
They would answer, "Our enemies steal our horses; we must fight and get them back again, or steal in turn. Without horses we can make no surrounds, nor could we, to protect our lives, fight our foes when they attack our villages." Of course these arguments were unanswerable. So long as they

On Wednesday, Aug. 5th, at 1:45 pm., the City of Carlsbad Police Department responded to a report of reckless driver on Carlsbad Boulevard near the intersection of Poinsettia Lane. Responding officers located the vehicle in the area of Carlsbad Boulevard near the intersection of Pine Avenue. Officers initiated a traffic stop and the vehicle pulled away headed north bound. Officers continued a low speed pursuit into Oceanside.
The vehicle overheated and the driver pulled into a business in the 1500 block of Coast Highway. The driver began acting erratically, reaching around the car and laying down on the seat. After his failure to comply with numerous commands a police K-9 was utilized to take the driver into custody. The driver, identified as 43year-old Chadron Scurry of Oceanside, was transported to Tri-City Hospital for treatment. Scurry will be charged with reckless driving, failure to yield, resisting arrest and assault on a police k-9.
Two San Diego Area Men Killed in Plane Crash Both Had Questionable Backgrounds
Two men found dead in the wreckage of a small plane that crashed in a remote area of Southern California Friday have been identified. Pilot David Martz, 58, and passenger Birger Greg Bacino, 56, both from San Diego, were in a single-engine Cessna 182 heading from Lompoc in Santa Barbara County to McClellanPalomar Airport in San Diego County when it crashed in a remote area of the Los Padres National Forest near the Don Victor Trail.
The plane took off from the San Luis Obispo Airport at approximately 9 p.m. before the pilot apparently made a mayday call, according to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) spokesman Ian Gregor says the pilot reported loss of engine power about 18 miles northeast of Santa Barbara. The plane was spotted early Friday on a mountainside 30 to 40 miles north of Ojai.

Man About Town
The Buzz: A lot of movers and shakers and great minds are coming together to try to figure out what to do about the downtown campus of the soonto-be-old Palomar Hospital.
Former Escondido Mayor Ernie Cowan has been tasked by the Escondido Chamber of Commerce Economic Development Committee to research and report on options. Spoke with Ernie a week ago and he was as excited as I have seen him in some time . . . “just think! We have the potential for having a dynamic downtown center for business activity, mixed use, retail shops, office space, perhaps some medical offices . . . it could be a centerpiece of Escondido.”
Evelyn and I are sick that we can’t make it as we will have boarded a plane for Sacramento at 8am this morning (Thursday). Would love to hear what the great minds and thinkers of our community have to say.
Good pal and former Chair of the then-Palomar Health District, Bruce Krider, weighed in with some other options to examine: “Hi, Let me try to hit the highlights. The non-IT part of the expenses come to about $150 million. Since $10 million was for hospital IT and there is no anticipated future hospital use so it may not be needed at all. Perhaps only some general IT hardware updating.
For the most part, these are primarily infrastructure (roof, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, piping,... basic stuff). The expenses are those booked for the next five years. The chronology of those is something I am not clear of because I am not on the board.
For a change, great news from Sacramento!
Our Assemblywoman, Marie Waldron, is doing a superb job representing the district. One of the ways she is doing this is make outstanding hires. We met last week with her Chief of Staff, Jayme Chick, her Principal Field Representative, Tom Stinson, and Marie “MJ” Joyce, Senior Field Representative.
We are pleased to report that the Democratic Majority is beginning to work with the Republican Minority with a view of “let’s do what is right for the community” rather than hard nosed party politics.
‘Commentary’ Cont. on Page 7
One of the things that has thrown a wrench into the issue of what to do with the old downtown campus was that the possibilities and plans never got re-written because the city was supposed to close down some of the streets around it, expanding the campus size. Palomar waited and waited but the city never did. In fact, the hospital district bought all the surrounding properties to allow it to happen. Still nothing. They were also supposed to accomplish some significant work on Citracado to help traffic issues with the new hospital. Never happened. The district deposited $13 million in an account for its proper portion. The city never allocated the funds. If I recall correctly, the district pulled out its funds because it was clear the city was not going to honor their commitment. So the initial possibilities for the old campus were scrapped. Certain things were not addressed during this last ten years because we didn't know how we were going to configure what existing and new or different services might make sense following the revision of the expanded campus. One of the new purposes was going to be a long term acute care rehabilitation hospital. A number of services including, OB, Oncology, Rehab, Pediatrics, Urgent care were housed for
Letters to the Editor
Petition for Redetermination of Fire Prevention “Fee”
Whether called a “fee” or a “tax,” the Fire Prevention “FEE” is an unmitigated fraud because contrary to its label, not one dime is used to fight or prevent fires. Rather, the asessments are dumped 100% into the General Fund for other unrelated uses. Moreover, the “Fee” is selectively assessed, not on the public at large, but only on those who reside in arbitrarily designated “State Responsibiity Areas” (SRA). This makes as much sense as taxing people named James because they live in Jamestown.

When I left the hospital, the downtown campus was "breaking-even" so we said, let's see how this goes and what else might might develop and see what we need to do with the facility at the time and have things make sense. Apparently that is not the case anymore. Its losing $20 million a year. I think there are lots of reasons which are all contributing to the problem. Among them decreased Children's hospital use, Kaiser Permanente use, etc. The seismic earthquake regulations (2030 deadline) are not really relevant AT THIS point. There are some sizeable areas of the hospital which meet the standards and patient care could be provided. The normal useful life of a hospital is 40-45 years. That facility is there (give or take).
Its true that you can "re-live" facilities to a certain extent but it has to be cost-effective. Its not. You could build a brand new 150 bed hospital for much less than the cost of doing the repairs needed. Its not financially feasible. No one would do it especially when you have a facility like the new one which has plenty of extra space. The

were surrounded with enemies, they must be prepared to defend themselves. The large majority of Indian troubles arise from their unrestrained appropriation of each other's horses. It is their only branch of wealth; like the miser with his gold, their greed for horses can not be satisfied. All their other wants are merely attended to from day to day; their need supplied, they look no farther; but their appetite for horses is insatiable: they are ever demanding more.
Mildrum and myself had a long conversation on the subject while he was smarting with the injury he received in leaping from the fort. He would say, "Beckwourth, I am pretty well used to this Indian life; there is a great deal in it that charms me. But when I think of my old Kentucky home — of father, mother, and other friends whom I tenderly love, and with whom I could be so happy, I wonder at the vagabond spirit that holds me here among these savages, fighting their battles, and risking my life and scalp, which I fairly suppose exceeds in value ten thousand of these bloodthirsty heathen. How, in the name of all that is sacred, can we reconcile ourselves to it? Why don't we leave them?" The medicine men held a council, and resolved to remove the village; the Great Spirit was displeased with the spot, and had therefore suffered all our warriors
to be killed. We accordingly pulled up stakes and moved a short distance farther.
While we were busy moving, my little squaw angered me, and I drove her away. She not daring to disobey me, I saw no more of her until she supposed my anger was appeased. She then came to the lodge while I was conversing with my brothers, and, putting her childish head into the door, said humbly, "I know you are angry with me, but I want you to come and stay at our lodge to-night; we are outside the village, and my father and mother are afraid." "Yes," said my brother, "she has no ears now; she is but a child; she will have ears when she grows older; you had better go and protect the old people."
I told her to run home, and I would soon follow.
I went to the lodge accordingly. In the night I heard the snorting of horses, which were tied near the lodge door. I crept softly out and looked carefully around. I then crawled, without the least noise, out of the lodge, and caught sight of an Indian, who I knew was there for no good purpose. He was using the utmost precaution; he had a sharp-pointed stick, with which he raised the leaves that lay in his way, so that his feet might not crush them, and thus alarm the inmates of the lodge. Every step brought him nearer to the animals, who, with necks

Much of this change is thanks to Marie Waldron’s ability to work with the opposing party. She is finding more and more Democratic Assembly members who are willing to make concessions and work toward a compromise. She researches legislation, does her homework, enters into amiable discussions with her Democratic counterparts. She holds her ground on key elements her party supports but is willing to give concessions in order to get concessions and gain a compromise that will result in bipartisan support. We are impressed with what Marie has acomplished.
Much of what she does is because she has made tremendous hires. Talented people who have years of experience in staff work, who can develop and provide the research and contact information to get her work done.

At the helm is a very talented and fashion model beautiful Chief of Staff from the Sacramento office, Jayme Chick. She’s been in government for years and makes sure Waldron’s office runs smoothly.
While Marie Waldron has not yet caused ALL of the Democratic majority to cooperate, she’s got enough of them moving over to work with her that the Assembly just might get some meaningful legislation done . . . instead of always contending with political roadblocks as has been the case in the past. In the process, Marie has earned a reputation among her fellow legislative colleagues as being a hard worker and a fair person to deal with. We are making progress in Sacramento, thanks in large part to the superb work of Assemblywoman Marie Waldron, a former City Council member from the city of Escondido.
She has made a believer out of this sometimes curmudgeonly old goat of an editor. She’s doing her job.

Fires in Northern California are clear evidence that fire season has arrived and will likely be with us for months to come. Fortunately, most of this region has been spared a major disaster so far, but our luck may not hold. We need to be prepared, to have a plan for fires or any disaster likely to strike our region, including earthquakes. Creating a family disaster plan that includes where to meet, how to keep in touch, what to do with pets and livestock, as well as gathering supplies including food, water and medication, must all be planned in advance.

The Ford Family: An Important Chapter in American History
If ever there was a story deserving of a Hollywood movie, the saga of the Ford family is at the top of that list.
Everyone knows Henry Ford was a pioneer in automobile manufacturing, but while he didn’t invent the automobile, Ford was the first automaker to mass produce vehicles. He created the assembly line, making it possible to roll out dozens of automobiles each day. Nearly everyone in America could afford a Model T. Accordingly, cities, counties, states, and the federal government, had to build

streets and highways for cars, thus connecting the population across America. People who never had been more than 25 miles from home, were free to venture 35 to 40 miles in little more than an hour.
But, as his empire expanded, Henry Ford became a troubled man. He was anti-Semitic and said as much in scathing editorials in his weekly newspaper distributed nationally through his dealerships. Prior to the outbreak of World War II, he was an isolationist, vehemently railing against America getting involved in any war. He made it known his successor would be Edsel, yet, to coin a phrase, never really gave his son “the keys to the car.” Despite Edsel being the president of the company, Henry’s constant criticisms and rejection of ideas helped drive Edsel to an early grave. Examples: Henry steadfastly believed all Americans really needed was the 1915 Model T, one of the company’s biggest alltime sellers. It was Edsel who finally persuaded his father to introduce the 1927 Model A. Then Edsel went to the mat, finally convincing his father the 1932 V-8 engine was the auto power plant of the future. When Edsel wanted to offer multiple colors on auto exteriors like

other companies, Henry flatly rejected the idea declaring, “Buyers can have any color they want as long as it’s black!”
There was a dark side to Henry. He was surrounded by a gang of thugs posing as “security.” The “bodyguards” were led by Harry Bennett, who gained tremendous influence over the old man, coming between father and son. Henry never realized the extent of Bennett’s power. In reality, he had control of the company by intimidating executives and workers and shutting Edsel out.
In 1943, Edsel died of stomach cancer, leaving the old man back in charge, but Bennett continued to control Ford. When the war started, the company was not meeting Washington’s demand for aircraft, tanks, various other vehicles, and armaments. Realizing the problem, the War Department took Lt. Henry Ford II, the grandson, out of the Navy and placed him in charge of the company. One of the first decisions the young executive, (who became known as “Hank the Deuce”) made was fire Bennett and his gang of thugs.
tions that revolutionized the American auto industry, the sweeping accomplishments of Edsel have nearly been lost to history.
Like his father, Edsel was an inventor and transportation visionary. He introduced the Mercury, Lincoln automobiles along with countless innovations. So, the next time you hear that low rumble of a V-8 engine, think of Edsel. Check out my two latest novels at: www.tomorrowsnovels.com

Research shows at least 30% or our population avoids going to the dentist due to fear. Our personal estimate is closer to 50% where anxiety is the culprit for avoiding needed care. With such a large segment of the population needing care but too afraid to seek us out, it is easy to see why a safe, non-judgemental, pain-free experience would be a welcome change for the anxietysticken patient.

made a commitment to learn the advanced technical skills required to practice OCS provide a solution for those needing this service putting them into a state of "twilight sleep" without rendering them actually unconscious. To be totally successful a dentist must learn more than just the technical skills. The certified OCS dentist must understand the emotional state as well. This involves understanding the state of a high-fear patient. This requires the dentist to actively listen to those who have avoided dentistry for years because of intense, realistic, palm-sweating, sick-to-the-stomach, eyepopping, and sleep depriving fear. It is a well-known fact that many people are often afraid to tell anyone about their fear, so they felt isolated. As dentists, we must be their "rock" in these situations and let them know that we understand their fear and that it is okay for them to feel the way they do. Using compassion and our expert-
ise, we are able to take their fear seriously, they are not being silly, and that we care about their emotional needs as well as their dental needs.

curved and ears erect, gave an occasional snort at the approach of the Indian. This would bring him to a halt. Then again he would bring his stick into action, and prepare a place for another step, not mistrusting that he was approaching the threshold of death. The ropes were tied close to the lodge door, and to untie them he must approach within six feet of where I lay on the ground. I let him advance as near as I thought safe, when, with one bound, I grappled him, and gave the war-hoop. He was the hardest to hold that ever I had my arms around, but I had both his arms pinned in my embrace round his lithe and nimble body, and he could not release one so as to draw his knife. Instantly we were surrounded with fifty armed warriors; and when I saw a sufficient breastwork round about, I released my hold and stepped back. He was riddled with bullets in an instant, and fell without a cry. His scalp sufficed to wash off the mourning-paint from every face in the village, and all was turned into mirth, although this general change in feeling did not restore the dismembered fingers or heal their voluntary wounds. Greater than ever was the Enemy of Horses, and I received a still more ennobling appellation, Shas-ka-ohush-a, the Bobtail Horse. The village exhausted itself in showing its admiration of my exploit; and my single scalp was greeted with as much honor as if I had slaughtered a hundred of the enemy. Short Account of Pine Leaf, the Crow Heroine. —Twenty Days' Battle with the Cheyennes. —Return of the Village to the west Side of the Mountains. —Letter from M'Kenzie —Visit to his Trading-post at the Mouth of the Yellow Stone.
In connection with my Indian experience, I conceive it to be my duty to devote a few lines to one of the bravest women that ever lived, namely, Pine Leaf — in Indian, Bar-chee-am-pe. For an Indian, she possessed great intellectual powers. She was endowed with extraordinary muscular strength, with the activity of the cat and the speed of the antelope. Her features were pleasing, and her form symmetrical. She had lost a brother in the attack on our village before mentioned — a great brave, and her twin brother. He was a fine specimen of the race of red men, and bade fair to rise to distinction; but he was struck down in his strength, and Pine Leaf was left to avenge his death. She was at that time twelve years of age, and she solemnly vowed that she would never marry until she had killed a hundred of the enemy with her own hand. Whenever a war-party started, Pine Leaf was the first to volunteer to accompany them. Her presence among them caused much amusement to the old veterans; but if she lacked physical strength, she always rode the fleetest horses, and none of the warriors could outstrip her. All admired her for her ambition, and
as she advanced in years, many of the braves grew anxious for the speedy accomplishment of her vow. She had chosen my party to serve in, and when I engaged in the fiercest struggles, no one was more promptly at my side than file young heroine. She seemed incapable of fear; and when she arrived at womanhood, could fire a gun without flinching, and use the Indian weapons with as great dexterity as the most accomplished warrior. I began to feel more than a common attachment toward her. Her intelligence charmed me, and her modest and becoming demeanor singled her out from her sex. One day, while riding leisurely along, I asked her to marry me provided we both returned safe. She flashed her dark eye upon mine, "You have too many already," she said. "Do you suppose I would break my vow to the Great Spirit? He sees and knows all things; he would be angry with me, and would not suffer me to live to avenge my brother's death." I told her that my medicine said that I must marry her, and then I could never be vanquished or killed in battle. She laughed and said, "Well, I will marry you." "When we return?"
"No; but when the pine-leaves turn yellow." I reflected that it would soon be autumn, and regarded her promise as valid. A few days afterward it occurred to my mind that pineleaves do not turn yellow, and I saw I had been practiced upon.
When I again spoke to her on the subject, I said, "Pine Leaf, you promised to marry me when the pine-leaves should turn yellow: it has occurred to me that they never grow yellow." She returned no answer except a hearty laugh. "Am I to understand that you never intend to marry me?" I inquired. "Yes, I will marry you," she said, with a coquettish smile. "But when?"
"When you shall find a red-headed Indian."
I saw I advanced nothing by importuning her, and I let the matter rest. However, to help her on with her vow, I never killed an Indian if she was by to perform it for me, thinking that when her number were immolated there might be better chance of pressing my suit.
We frequently shifted our camping-ground, in order to keep up with the buffalo and furnish our horses with sufficient grass, for we had such an immense number that the prairie round our lodges in a few days had the appearance of a closely-mown meadow. Finally, we removed to the western side of the mountain again, and encamped on Little Horn River, one of the sources of the

What is most pressing is the fact that keeping those services in this additional facility nets out now annually at a negative $20 million/year. It has nothing to do with depreciation. This is operations.
The next step would be to get from the hospital what they want for it or.... if they would lease it on a triple net lease... The triple net would be pretty cumbersome though so I don't have any great thoughts. I think whatever the solution, it will have to be pretty clever to work. ••••• I'm both pleased and proud to announce that I'm heading for Washington, D.

And they can’t really pass along that cost to the consumer. The business is too competitive. Result? The retaurateur eats the cost increase, which cuts into his or her margin of profit. Now is not a good time to go into the restaurant business. Established restaurants may survive with a smaller profit margin . . . the newer ones are not likely to make it.

Not only is the “Fee” deceptively named, it is duplicitous and wholly unnecessary because its victims have already paid for fire fighting and prevention through their local property taxes. Note the eerie resemblance of being charged not to fight fires with the mob’s extorionate “protection” rackets. It is just this sort of corrupt assessments under the banner of “public interest” that gives State Government (and the Legislature) a bad name. One thing is certain though - whoever concocted this scam made absolutely sure that neither he nor his kin resides in an SRA.
This corrupt fee shoud be cancelled forthwith and its victims reimbursed in full with appropriate apologies. Henry P. Johnson Escondido, CA.

I sat down and Sharpton came up to me, I don't know why, maybe it was because I was the only white person in the Church. He laid his hands on my hand and said: "By the will of Jesus the Lord All Mighty, and the will of God, you will walk today." I told him I was not paralyzed.

Yellow Stone. Shortly after our encampment, we found there was a village of Cheyennes about twelve miles distant, and an incessant warfare was maintained between the two villages for twenty days. Sometimes they would take three or four Crow scalps; in return, our party would retaliate by taking as many of theirs. Thus they went on, with varying fortune, during the whole twenty days.
I had never been engaged in these skirmishes; but one evening, I, with three others, among whom was Yellow Belly, resolved to go on an adventure. Accordingly, we started for the Cheyenne, arriving there the next morning, and unhesitatingly entered their village while the inmates were quietly reposing. After passing through one quarter of their village, we saw an Indian approaching, who, on perceiving us, wheeled his horse to escape. I shot an arrow into his back, but, before he fell, I rode up, cut him down with my battle-axe, and rode on. One of our party, not wishing to lose his scalp, dismounted to take it. In doing so he lost his horse, which followed us, leaving his rider on foot close to the enemy's village, whence the aroused warriors were issuing like hornets. Perceiving his danger, I rode back, and took him up behind me. We had to run for it; but we made good our escape, driving home before us seven horses captured from the enemy. This was considered a great achievement by our Crow brethren, and they again washed their faces. The enemy now charged on our village, killing six Crows, among whom was a brother-in-law of mine. His relatives appealed to me to avenge them. Supposing that the enemy would renew the attack the next day, I selected one hundred and thirty warriors, all well mounted, to waylay them. We posted ourselves midway between the belligerent villages, but the Cheyennes had passed within a few hundred yards before we were in ambush. Being there, the idea occurred to me to await their return. On their repulse from the village we would spring up and cut off their retreat, and, I made no doubt, succeed in killing a great number of their warriors. It fell out as I had expected. The Crows drove them back with a loss to the enemy of four; and when they neared us, their horses were badly jaded, and our friends hotly in pursuit. We sprung up, cutting off their retreat, and they, sorely pressed in their rear, seeing our party in front cutting down right and left, became panic-struck, and fled in all directions. We took sixteen scalps, with the horses and equipments of the fallen warriors, and returned home in triumph. This made twenty scalps taken in one day, which was considered by the Crows a glorious victory, and the scalpdance was performed with unusual vivacity. In this battle the heroine was by my side, and fought with her accustomed audacity. I counted five coos, and she three,
for three enemies killed with her lance. The Cheyennes, disconcerted with their misadventure, moved their village away from the Crow territory.
We also took up our line of march, and moved on to Clarke's Fork, a branch of the Yellow Stone, where we found abundance of buffalo and good grass. While encamped here I received a letter from Mr. M'Kenzie, written at Fort Union, at the mouth of the Yellow Stone, where he desired me to see him. It was delivered to me by Mr. Winters, who, in company with one man, had found his way unharmed. M'Kenzie wished me to see him immediately on business of importance, as he wished, through my influence, to establish a trade with the Crows.
On communicating my intention of performing the journey, all expostulated at my going. I gave them my positive word that I would return in eighteen suns if not killed on the way. It was a long and hazardous journey to undertake, having to traverse a distance of seven hundred and sixty miles, exposed to numerous bands of hostile Indians. I succeeded in reaching the fort in safety, where I found M'Kenzie with a great stock of miscellaneous goods. I arrived late in the afternoon, dispatched my business with him hastily, and started on my return in the morning. I took ten pack-horses laden with goods to trade with the Indians, in addition to which several boats were freighted and sent to me up the Yellow Stone. Two men accompanied me to the Crow country. We had no trouble on our way until we arrived within a few miles of our village (as I supposed it), when, as we were marching on, I remarked something unfamiliar in the appearance of the place. I ordered the two men to turn their animals up a little valley close by, while I took a nearer look at the village. A closer inspection confirmed my mistake; I saw the lodges were painted a different color from our own. I followed the packhorses, and found a trail which led to the Crow village, and concealed from the observation of the village we had approached. Soon after entering the trail, I discovered the fresh tracks of five Indians, going the direction that we were. I halted the pack-horses, and rode on to get a sight of them. At a short distance I perceived the five men, and, unobserved by them, I rode on and entered a low place until I approached within a few rods of them. I took a short survey of them, and concluded that they must be enemies belonging to the village we had just left. They were on foot, and I conceived myself a match for the whole five. I leveled my rifle, and was taking aim, when my horse moved his head and disconcerted any sight. I tried again, with precisely the same result. I then dismounted, and advanced two or three steps nearer my object. As I was about to fire, having the rein on my arm, the horse made another motion, thus spoiling my aim for the third time. At that moment one of them made a yawning expression in the Crow language, and I was so ter-

Paul & Nome Van Middlesworth, The Computer Factory
Please Don’t Install Windows 10 Upgrade.
The PC industry is spending billions to put a positive spin on Win10 (Windows 10) hoping to outshout those who are revealing the dark side of Microsoft’s latest. Acceptance of Win10 is key to Microsoft’s future and critical for the entire computer industry. Win10 hopes to reverse the retail sales slump that started when Microsoft released Windows 8 in August 2012. As we expected, many early adopters of the Win10 (Windows 10) upgrade are running into problems. We received five PCs with Win10 upgrade blow-ups late last week. Not everyone is unhappy with the Win10 upgrade. The PC equivalent of “shade tree mechanics” are having a ball. These folks love solving PC problems. Some folks

rified at his narrow escape that the rifle dropped from my hand. I called to them, telling them the danger they had escaped. "Why," said they, "you would not have attacked five of us?"
"Yes," I said, "and would have killed every one of you, had you been enemies."
They then informed me that they had lost two men that day near the village of the Black Feet, who were now, beyond doubt, dancing over their scalps. I did not wait to hear more, but directed them to return to my horses and assist the men in getting on to the Crow village as soon as possible. I rode forward to make my arrival known.
My return was welcomed with the liveliest demonstrations of joy by the whole tribe. But I delayed no time in ceremonial. I called a council forthwith, and informed them that the Black Feet were encamped ten miles distant, that two of our warriors had that day fallen by their hands, and that we must go and avenge their death. The chief assented; but, as a preliminary, directed me and another to count their lodges that night. I undertook the dangerous task, although extremely fatigued with my long journey. We succeeded in the object of our expedition, and found their lodges outnumbered ours by one. There are, as a general thing, from four to six warriors to a lodge; the Black Foot vil-
In theory the Win10 “upgrade” is designed to be a simple operation that any user can successfully negotiate. In practice it rarely actually works that way. There are “bugs” in the “upgrade” that can cause serious problems for some users. Microsoft will eventually resolve these issues but we can think of no good reason to “upgrade” to Win10 at this time. Wait at least a month or so if you decide to do it at all.
There are two reasons for the existence of Win10. First, Microsoft was forced to create Win10 in order to revive the three year plunge in retail PC sales caused by the unpopularity of Win8. Second and more importantly, because PC sales are no longer growing, Microsoft needs to replace the loss of revenue from the sale of operating systems to manufacturers. Win10 Is designed to replace that lost revenue by selling advertising, applications and services.
ing. The company saves customers’ basic information – name, contact details, passwords, demographic data and credit card specifics, but it also digs a bit deeper. Other information Microsoft saves includes Bing search queries and conversations with the new digital personal assistant Cortana; contents of private communications such as email; websites and apps visited (including features accessed and length of time used); and contents of private folders, furthermore, your typed and handwritten words’ are collected.’” Newsweek.
A default installation of Win10 will quietly track your behavior, keeping tabs on your location history, data from messages, calendars, contacts and more. Microsoft will tell you that this information is used to provide better service to you, but in real-
ity they will use it or sell it in any way they see fit to increase their share of Internet revenue. Win10 is the first Windows OS to give Microsoft complete control of your Internet experience by eliminating your ability to control access to your own PC. Whatever Microsoft wants on your PC will be a mandatory update.
Manufacturers who sell direct to end users like The Computer Factory will continue to sell new desktop and notebooks with Win7. Dell and HP and other major brands will continue to sell Windows 7 PCs to large corporate users. Microsoft will continue their practice of not allowing retailers like Staples, Best Buy, Office Depot, Costco and other “big box” stores to sell PCs with any OS except their latest, in this case Win10. It’s a jungle out there.
Microsoft’s Internet advertising revenue in 2014 was $4 billion, Google’s was $65 billion. In order to get a bigger share of the pie, Microsoft needs to know more about you. Win10 will change all that. “From the moment an account is created, Microsoft begins watch-
lage comprised two hundred and thirty-three lodges; hence we could form a pretty accurate estimate of the number of warriors we had to contend with.
Their village was closely watched by our spies; every movement made by the enemy was promptly reported to our chief. During the night they appeared to sleep soundly, probably fatigued with a late dance. But in the morning they were astir betimes, and having packed up, started forward in our direction, apparently unaware of our presence. On they came — men, women, and children — utterly unconscious of the terrible shock that awaited them. Our warriors were never better prepared for a conflict, and never more certain of victory. We were drawn up on a high table prairie, our whole force concealed from view at no greater distance than half pistol-shot.
Their chief led the van, and with him were several young squaws, who were laughing and dancing around him, evidently to his great amusement. They were near enough to launch the thunders of war upon them, and our chief gave orders to charge. The order was instantly carried into effect. The chief who, a moment before, was so joyous, surrounded by his tawny young squaws, was the first to fall beneath my battle-axe, and his attendants scattered like chaff before the wind. We were upon the warriors so unexpectedly that they had hardly time to

The City of Carlsbad completed a comprehensive report Friday analyzing a proposed citizen-led initiative for a “specific plan” on 203.4 acres of land east of I-5 between the south shore of Agua Hedionda Lagoon and Cannon Road. The Caruso Affiliated’s proposal to build a shopping, entertainment and open-space destination on the southern shore of the Agua Hedionda Lagoon seems to be enhanced by the favorable city report. The report provides the city’s analysis of the initiative’s compliance with the city’s land use policies, including its voterapproved Growth Management Program. The report also evaluates the initiative’s potential economic, fiscal and environmental effects on the city. After analyzing the initiative and related technical studies
and environmental analyses provided by the initiative proponents, a team including city staff and outside experts from a variety of fields found the plan to be largely in compliance with city laws, policies and standards. The report finds that the plan proposed by the initiative substantially meets current city planning standards and policies, including all but one of the city’s strict standards for growth management.
The city’s economic analysis showed the plan proposed by the initiative would provide significant economic benefits, although less than projected by the proponents’ studies. On the environmental front, the city found that the environmental analysis conducted by the initiative proponents is in substantial conformance with normal city policies and practices and those that would be reviewed under the California Environmental Quality Act.
Under the California Elections Code, which spells out the rules for the initiative process, a City Council may request the preparation of a “9212 report” to study a proposed initiative. The City Council requested the report, which is named for the section of the elections code related to citizen-led initiatives, at its May 19 meeting.

A New Church is Coming to Carlsbad
September 13 could be a big day for the village of Carlsbad. New Song Church of Carlsbad will be born in the beautiful little building located at 3780 Pio Pico Drive. Service times will be 9:30 and 11:15 a.m. Sundays.
If you live in or near the Village of Carlsbad, this is your official invitation to join us for the GRAND OPENING. New Song’s building is located between Tamarack and Carlsbad Village Drive on property formerly owned by Pacific Breeze Baptist Church. You can see it’s steeple from the freeway. Pastor Joe Cole will lead this brand new baby church. Joe is a
It’s not often that new churches are born in Carlsbad, so this is an opportunity for residents to get in on the ground floor of what promises to be a thriving, family-oriented, multi-generational church.
I was approached last winter about helping revitalize the Pacific Breeze congregation. Together we agreed that it would be best to have Pacific Breeze dissolve and its members join with a fresh group of New Songers in founding a completely new church. With three locations now in Oceanside and one in Fallbrook, New Song will now be one church in five locations. Each location has a campus pastor who preaches live. (They’re all incredible communicators.) I get the privilege of helping them develop churches that are biblically-accurate, relevant to the culture, friendly, and lots of fun to attend.

Major street maintenance slated for Rancho Santa Fe Road
Motorists traveling in San Marcos this fall will notice crews working along Rancho Santa Fe Road and several other city streets to improve overall pavement condition, ride and safety.
Maintaining streets is one of the City’s highest priorities and we ask for patience from motorists, residents and businesses during this important roadway repair project.
Beginning this fall, Rancho Santa Fe Road from State Route 78 to Lakeridge Drive will undergo a $3 million facelift to restore the roadway. The entire street will be rehabilitated and repaved to extend the overall life of the driving surface to keep motorists and bicyclists moving smoothly. Some portions of the roadway will require pavement removal and replacement, while other segments will need a surface grinding prior to the final rubberized asphalt pavement overlay. Traffic flow is important to our residents and keeping San Marcos roads in good condition maintains overall traffic safety and mobility.

Reflections of an Older Person
As I look around pondering the problems of the world, I realized that at my age I don't care anymore.

A rabbit runs and hops and only lives 15 years, while a tortoise doesn't run and does mostly nothing, yet it lives for 150 years. And they tell us to exercise? I don't think so. Now that I'm older, here's what I've discovered:

City to Save Energy Retrofitting Street Lights
The Public Works Department is currently working on a project that will ultimately convert 2,200 City-maintained residential street lights to highly efficient light-emitting diodes or LEDs, a move that will create significant savings down the road for the City. The switch is a cost effective way to reduce energy consumption and maintenance of city street lighting. LEDs use less energy than traditional bulbs and also last much longer. The program is expected to save the city approximately $97,000 annually once completed. Known for its energy efficiency, an LED light provides high quality lighting
that can last five to 12 times longer than the current pressurized sodium (yellow cast) lamps. The LEDs also emit a clearer white light that enhance visibility at intersections, improving safety for motorists and pedestrians.
In 2009, the City replaced over 900 arterial and traffic signal safety streetlights with LED lamps, with Federal Energy Efficiency Community Block Grant funding. Lighting output was increased, while the City’s energy and maintenance costs were simultaneously reduced. The City is always researching opportunities to conserve energy and will continue to explore other opportunities as they arise.

These days, I spend a lot of time thinking about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, and then wonder what I'm "here after." Funny, I don't remember being absent-minded. It is a lot better to be seen than viewed. What is She Talking About?
I came home from the golf course today. The wife had left a note on the refrigerator: "IT'S NOT WORKING, I can't take it anymore! Gone to stay with my mother."
I opened the fridge, the light came on, and the beer was cold... What the hell is she talking about? Worth a Try!
No one ever wants to be pulled over for speeding. While I try to avoid getting pulled over at all costs, I have to admit that I have received a speeding ticket or two in my day.
And while getting a ticket is never any fun, I try to always maintain a pleasant demeanor and a positive attitude when talking with police officers. After all, maybe today will be my lucky day and I won’t get a ticket.
When I saw this hilarious story of what one woman did when she got pulled over for speeding, I absolutely laughed out loud. I don’t think I would ever say anything like she did, but the surprise ending certainly had me wondering if I should. After pulling her over, the policeman approached the driver’s door. “Is there a problem, officer?”
The policeman said, “Ma’am, you were speeding. Can I see your license, please?” The driver responded, “I’d give it to you, but I don’t have one.” “You don’t have one?”
The woman responded, “I lost it four times for drunk driving.” The policeman was shocked. “I see. Can I see your vehicle registration papers, please?” “I’m sorry, I can’t do that.”
The policeman said, “Why not?” “I stole this car.”
The officer said, “Stole it?”
The woman replied, “Yes, and I killed the owner.” At this point the officer was getting irate. “You what?”
“He’s in the trunk if you want to see.”
The officer looked at the woman and slowly backed away to his car and called for backup.
Within minutes, five police cars showed up, surrounding the car. A senior officer slowly approached the car, clasping his half-drawn gun.
The senior officer said, “Ma’am, could you step out of your vehicle, please!” The woman stepped out of her vehicle. “Is there a problem, sir?” “One of my officers told me that you have stolen this car and murdered the owner.” “Murdered owner?” One Year after Trump is Elected President
The officer responded, “Yes, could you

draw their weapons before they were overthrown and put to flight. They were encumbered with women, children, and baggage. Our attention was directed solely to the men; the women were unharmed, except those who were overturned by our horses.
During the engagement, a powerful Black Foot aimed a blow at me with his battle-axe, which Pine Leaf deprived of its effect by piercing his body through with her lance. In a few moments the fighting was over, and after pursuing the flying enemy through the timber, we returned to collect the spoils of victory. We took one hundred and seventy scalps, over one hundred and fifty women and children, besides abundance of weapons, baggage, and horses. The Crows had twenty-nine wounded. This was a severe blow to the Black Feet; such a slaughter is of rare occurrence in Indian warfare. Notwithstanding this sad defeat, they rallied their broken band, and attacked us again in the afternoon; but it amounted to nothing, and they fled in gloomy confusion beyond the Crow territory.
Pine Leaf never signalized herself more than on this occasion. She counted six coos, having killed four of the enemy with her own hand. She had but few superiors in wielding the battle-axe. My horse was killed by the blow which was aimed at my head by the Indian whom the heroine killed. I wore a superb headdress, ornamented with eagles' feathers and weasels' tails — the labor of many days. Early in the action, three of these tails were severed by a bullet which grazed my head. "These Black Feet shoot close," said the heroine, as she saw the ornaments fall; "but never fear; the Great Spirit will not let them harm us."
I took a very pretty young woman prisoner, but was obliged to give her up to one of the braves, who had my promise before the battle that if I took one I would give her to him, and if he took one he should give her to me. When a warrior (of the Crow tribe) takes a woman prisoner, she is considered his sister, and he can never marry her. If she marries, her husband is brother-in-law to her captor. Our prisoners soon forgot their captivity; they even seemed pleased with the change, for they joined with great alacrity in our scalp-dance over the scalps of their own people. All Indian women are considered by the stronger sex as menials: they are thoroughly reconciled to their degradation, and the superiority of their "lords and masters" is their chiefest subject of boast. They are patient, plodding, and unambitious, although there are instances in savage life of a woman manifesting superior talent, and making her influence felt upon the community. During my visit at Fort Union I engaged to build a fort for M'Kenzie to store his goods in safety at the mouth of the Big
Horn River, one of the branches of the Yellow Stone. Accordingly, I repaired to the place to select a good site and commence operations. On arriving at the spot, I found the boats close by, but as there was no secure quay at the junction of the streams, I selected a site about a mile below. There were fifty men, who had arrived with the boats, hired to assist me in erecting the fort. The stipulated dimensions were one hundred and twenty yards for each front, the building to be a solid square, with a block-house at opposite corners. The fort was erected of hewn logs planted perpendicularly in the ground; the walls were eighteen feet high. As soon as the pickets were up, we built our houses inside, in order to be prepared for the approach of winter. When I had been engaged about six weeks upon its construction, four hundred lodges of Crows moved into our immediate vicinity, thus affording us plenty of company, and a sufficient force to protect us against the attacks of hostile tribes. When we had completed our building we unloaded the boats, and commenced trading with the Indians. During the first year the company was very unsuccessful, sinking over seventeen thousand dollars in the undertaking. This, however, was principally attributable to the outlay upon the fort (the wages of the fifty men engaged in constructing it ran for twelve months), and to the number of presents which it is customary, on such occasions, to distribute among the Indians.
After the Crows had removed to the fort, they were repeatedly annoyed with attacks from different hostile tribes. I was engaged in two small encounters during the winter, in both of which we were completely victorious. The Crows were fully occupied in protecting their own horses, or levying contributions upon their neighbors.
During the winter we accumulated a large amount of peltry, which in the spring I sent down to Fort Union in five Mackinaw boats, built by ourselves for the purpose. I sent a sufficient number of men to take good care of the boats, and to return up stream with a fresh supply of goods. I then left the fort in charge of Winters, leaving him thirty men for a guard. I also had provided an ample stock of dried meat, so that they might avoid the risk of hunting for provisions. Early in May we commenced our march in search of summer quarters. We traveled by easy stages, and on a circuitous route, so that when we finally arrived at Rosebud Creek, a branch of the Yellow Stone, we found ourselves but twenty miles distant from the fort.
After we had remained about a week at our encampment, our village was invested by a large warparty of Black Feet. It happened very fortunately we were building a medicine lodge at the time, and our whole force was at home, which circumstance most probably preserved us from a disastrous defeat. Our enemies num-

‘The Indian Wars’ Cont. from Page 16
bered about four thousand warriors, to oppose whom we had two thousand eight hundred practiced warriors, besides the old men, who always acted as village guards. At daybreak the enemy advanced upon our village with great impetuosity. Our war-horses being tied to our lodge doors, the first alarm found our defenders ready mounted to meet the assailants. We did not allow them to enter the village, but advanced on to the plain to meet them. The contest was severe for several minutes, and the clash of battleaxes and the fierce yells of the opposing forces made the whole prairie tremble. The two parties charged alternately, according to the Indian mode of warfare; but the Crows gained ground at every attack, for they fought with every thing at stake. The fight lasted for several hours. Early in the action we discovered a manœuvre of the enemy which would probably have resulted seriously for us had we not perceived it in time. About half their force was detached to attack us in the rear, and take possession of the village. I formed from fifteen to eighteen hundred warriors into a body, and rode down to meet their detachment as it wound around the foot of a small hill. They were in quick march to gain their position, and approached in seeming security. My warriors being formed upon the brow of a hill under which the enemy was passing, I gave the order for a rush down the hill upon them. The attack was made with such irresistible force that every thing in our way was overthrown, and warriors and horses were knocked into promiscuous piles. We happened to burst upon their centre, thus severing them in two, and the confusion they became involved in was so irremediable that their only hope was to get back to their main body with as little delay as possible.
In the attack, a lance thrown by a Black Foot perforated my leggin, just grazing the calf of my leg, and entered the body of my horse, killing him on the spot. My everpresent friend, Pine Leaf, instantly withdrew it, releasing me from a very precarious situation, as I was pinned close to the horse, and his dying struggles rendered such proximity extremely unsafe. I sprang upon the horse of a young warrior who was wounded, and called to some of our women to convey the wounded man to a place of safety; the heroine then joined me, and we dashed into the conflict. Her horse was immediately after killed, and I discovered her in a hand-to-hand encounter with a dismounted Black Foot, her lance in one hand and her battle-axe in the other. Three or four springs of my steed brought me upon her antagonist, and, striking him with the breast of my horse when at full speed, I knocked him to the earth senseless, and before he could recover, she pinned him to the ground with her lance and scalped him. When I had overturned the warrior, Pine Leaf called to me, "Ride on; I have him safe now."
I rode on accordingly, but she was soon mounted again and at my side. The surviving Black Feet speedily dispersed, and they all
retreated together, leaving the Crows master of the field. They left behind ninety-one killed, besides carrying off many dead with their wounded. We lost thirty-one killed, and a large number wounded. I had five horses killed under me, but received no wound. Our enemies, in their retreat, drove off sixteen hundred horses, among which were eighty of my own, but we had plenty left, and we considered these only lent to them. We had no dance, and the relatives of the slain went through their usual mourning. A few days after this battle a messenger arrived from the fort with a request for me to return as quickly as possible, as the Black Feet were continually harassing the men, and they were in fear of a general attack. Accordingly, I returned in the latter part of June, and found affairs in a very serious condition. The Indians had grown very bold, and it was hazardous to venture outside the fort.
One morning seven men were sent about one mile away to cut house-logs, it being supposed there were no Indians in the vicinity. Some time in the forenoon I heard the report of a rifle close to our gate. I ran out, and just caught sight of the retreating Indians as they entered the bushes. They had shot and scalped one of our men as he was chopping only a few paces from the gate. The danger that the other men might be placed in then occurred to me, and, ordering the men to follow me, I mounted my horse and hastened to their rescue. I was followed by about one half the men, the remainder preferring the protection of the wooden walls. I soon discovered our men; they were surrounded by forty Indians, the chief of whom appeared to be addressing the sun, and was gesticulating with his battle-axe. On his raising his arm, I sent a ball through his body, and then shouted to the men to run to me. They started, but one of them was shot down before they reached me. The survivors were so terrified that they did not dare to stop when they reached me, but continued their course unslackened until they gained the fort. My followers, seeing their alarm, became fugitives in turn, and I was left alone within gunshot of the remaining thirty-nine Indians. Uttering deafening yells, they made a rush for me; my horse became frightened, and I could scarcely mount him. However, by running by his side a few paces, I managed to leap on his back, and retreated at full speed, while their bullets and arrows flew around me like hail. When I approached the fort, a voice near me cried, "Oh, Jim! don't leave me here to be killed."
I wheeled round, and, with my double-barreled gun in my hand, made a charge toward the whole approaching party, who, seeing my resolute bearing, turned and scampered off. I rode up to the person who had called me, and found him an old man, who was unable to run, and had been abandoned by his valorous companions to the mercy of the savages. I assisted him on to my horse, and was about to spring on behind him, when the horse sprang forward, leaving the old man's gun
behind, and carried him safely to the fort. By this time the Indians had returned upon me. I ran wherever a shelter offered itself; and, when closely pressed, would face round and menace them with my guns. Within a few hundred yards of the fort I came to a small covering which had been used as a shelter by the horse-guards, and I sprang into it, with the Indians at my heels. After expending the contents of my guns, I plied them with arrows to their hearts' content, until they gave up the fray and retired. This took place in fair view of the fort, when not one of its doughty inmates dare come to my assistance, and who even refused to resign their fire-arms to the women, who were anxious to come to my rescue.
When at length I succeeded in reaching the fort, I favored the men with my unreserved opinion of them. I had been the means of saving their lives even after the chief of the savages had returned thanks to the sun for their scalps, which he had already deemed secure. I really believe that with Pine Leaf and three other squaws I could have stormed and taken the fort from their possession. These men were not mountaineers; they were nearly all Canadians, and had been hired in the East; they were unused to savage warfare, and only two of them had seen an Indian battle. If they had come out like men, we might have killed one half the Indians, and I should have been spared a great deal of hard feeling. They acknowledged, however, that I had flogged the Indians alone, and that six of them were indebted to me for their lives.
In July, after the arrival of the boats, the Crows again returned to the fort. They came to make purchases with what small means they possessed, as they had disposed of all their peltry on their previous visit. They, however, brought in a great quantity of roots, cherries, berries, etc., which they traded for articles of necessity; they also sold sixty horses, which we sent to M'Kenzie at the lower fort (Clarke).
It greatly charms the Indians to see new goods when they have the means to buy there is no end to their purchases. When the lances, battle-axes, and guns are spread before their eyes, glittering with their burnished steel, notwithstanding they may have a dozen serviceable weapons at home, they must infallibly purchase a new one. If one purchases, all must follow; hence there is no limit to their demand but the very important one imposed by the extent of their exchangeable commodities.
The newly-arrived boats were manned with Canadians, all strangers in the country, nearly all having been imported for boating, as they were willing to submit to the hardships of such a life for a smaller remuneration than men hired in the States. On their arrival, their brethren related a thousand tales about the Indians, and what feats I had performed against them single-handed. They listened to the marvelous tales, and gazed at me in wondering admiration.
When Canadians are fairly broken in, and have become familiar with Indian character, they make the best of Indian fighters, especially when put to it in defense of their own lives. They become superior trappers too, being constituted, like their native ponies, with a capacity to endure the extremest hardships and privations, and to endure starvation for an incredibly long period.

please open the trunk of your car, please?” The woman opened it, revealing nothing but an empty trunk. The officer said, “Is this your car, ma’am?”
The woman replied, “Yes,” and handed over the registration papers.
The officer, understandably, was quite stunned. “One of my officers claims that you do not have a license.”
The woman dug in her purse revealing a license and handed it to the officer. The officer examined it and looked quite puzzled. “Thank you, ma’am. One of my officers told me you didn’t have a licence, stole this car, and murdered the owner.” The woman replied, “I bet you the lying bastard told you I was speeding, too!” Retirement!
Some have asked what I'm going to do in retirement.
Well, I recently applied for a building permit for a new house. It was going to be 100 ft tall and 400 ft wide, with 12 gun turrets at various heights, and windows all over the place and a loud outside entertainment sound system that was going to entertain the whole neighborhood. It would have parking for 200 cars, and I was going to paint it snot green with pink trim.
The City Council told me... "Forget it... IT AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN!" So, I sent in the application again, but this time I called it a 'Mosque.' The ground breaking is next Monday. I love this country. It's the government that scares the crap out of me.

Woman’s Club Dedicates Gazebo at Botanical Gardens
The Woman’s Club of Vista recently dedicated its Alta Vista Botanical Gardens gazebo, with climbing roses, situated on a view-rich promontory, to honor the club’s 99th anniversary. With Club donations over the past five years, the gazebo was finally built in April 2014. Native rock benches were built in November 2014 and the brick floor was added in 2015. The Club’s Centennial Celebration medallion was installed recently. The gazebo is a beautiful symbol of the club’s dedication to the community and a popular gathering spot and photo-op. The club has donated over $17,000 to the Gardens and sponsors free field trips for school children. Members of the Woman’s Club work as volunteers for Earth Day and Fall Fun Festivals and its president, Nancy B. Jones, is known as Farmer Jones who presents the Kids in the Garden class each month. Last year, the Club received a Conservation Award from the General Federation of Women’s Clubs. Also present at the dedication were AVBG Directors Ed Fitzgerald, Naomi and Bill Stein, and Dottie and Art Logan. (Photo Credit: Art zogan).

It took less than two weeks for Ernie Liebman, retired Escondido Fire Marshal, to correctly identify Fred Soleimani as our ‘mystery guy.’ Fred is owner of both Pegah’s Kitchen Restaurants in North County, one in Escondido at 9th & Redwood and one in San Marcos at Mission and Mulberry. He and his wife, Sara, operated successful restaurants in Kansas City, Kansas for 27 years before moving to the San Diego County area. (Pegah’s, incidentally, is named after one of their daughters.) Congrats to Ernie Liebman, a long time friend . . . and good to hear from him as well!
