Most of us are familiar with the tales of derring-do of our forefathers who came forth from the interior of our nation and emigrated to the west coast. We’ve heard of the hardships they endured and how some of them overcame them and were successful in arriving in California, Oregon, Washington . . . all the fun places on the western seaboard. And we learned of those that didn’t make it as well. But we haven’t heard a whole lot about the women folk who traveled with their men, with their families. They, too, had to endure a great deal.
What follows are excerpts from Across the Plains in '1864 by Prairie Schooner to Oregon, by Anna Dell Clinkinbeard, the great-great granddaughter of John Kelly Vandenburgh, a successful farmer near Dubuque, Iowa, who resolved to emigrate to Oregon. We think this gives you a fascinating glimpse into what it was like . . .back in the day: Father and Mother sat on the seat of one wagon, that first morning, Father driving the fine team of dappled grays, Derby and Prince, a team that soon became our pride and joy; they were so friendly and so true. At first Carrie and I and the three little boys had seats on the boxes and bedding under the cover. Carrie soon grew tired of her place there, however. Most of the journey she rode on the seat of one of the other wagons. It was always fun for us, though, to curl up on the bedding, looking out from beneath the cover flaps. Always there was something new to be seen, and I'm sure Father grew tired of questions. Two brothers, Tom and Chris Halligan, sons of a neighboring farmer we had always known, had been hired to drive the other wagons and help with the work of the travel. Major trotted happily beside the horses when we did not have him in the wagon with us.
Our wagons were well, but not heavily, loaded. Uncle Isaac The Paper - 760.747.7119
and his brother Joe, who had decided to emigrate too, knew from experience that it was better to take an extra wagon than to have to travel slowly. One could always sell an extra outfit in the West if it was not needed, they said. They had helped Father make a list of necessary articles, and had advised as to the packing. It
was well for us that they were experienced, too, as we were saved many a hardship suffered by those who took with them unneeded things and discarded articles of great value on the plains. That list was so long that when I read it I wondered if there would be any room in the wagons for us.

Here we were, however, all comfortably seated and ready for the long journey, ready except for some stores that Father planned to buy at Council Bluffs (Iowa). All our clothing, bedding, cooking utensils, and the food to be used first were in the wagon with us. One wagon carried little but horse feed to last until

the horses grew accustomed to eating the prairie grass. The other was loaded with stores of various kinds, food, the tent, the camp stove, a canvas sling behind in which to put scraps of wood for our fires, and extra ammunition, for though the Indians had not been troublesome for a long time, there was always uncertainty concerning them. We soon joined Uncle Isaac and Aunt Caroline Acker with their family and their three wagons and Uncle Joe and Aunt Emmy Acker with their wagons. I was glad, for Florence climbed in with us. She was two years younger than I, but somewhat larger. As I was leaving every other playmate behind, I was surely glad of her company. "Mother says I may ride with you today," she announced. "Isn't it fun?"
Surely it was. We pulled the bedding around until we had a comfortable nest and curled up happily as we rumbled on. The flaps were down that morning and we couldn't see much excepting straight ahead, so we were glad after a while when Father stopped a moment to rest his horses. We

TIPS FROM THE REDNECK BOOK OF MANNERS
1. Never take a beer to a job interview. 2. Always identify people in your yard before shooting at them. 3. It's considered poor taste to take a cooler to church. 4. If you have to vacuum the bed, it is time to change the sheets. 5. Even if you're certain that you are included in the will, it is still considered tacky to drive a U-Haul to the funeral home. DINING OUT 1. If drinking directly from the bottle, always hold it with your fingers covering the label. 2. Avoid throwing bones and food scraps on the floor as the
scrambled out, Winfield and Henry Acker who was a year younger than he, and Florence and I. We ran on ahead of the wagons, glad of the freedom. Indeed we were to learn that frequent turns at walking were delightful, and many a mile of that long trip did we travel afoot.
Those first nights before we reached Council Bluffs we spent at farmhouses, generally at the houses of friends where we paid last visits. We bought milk and fruit and vegetables along the way so as not to deplete our stores. It was all so new to us, those first days on the road, and so interesting. To our parents, when they looked at their six children and what were now their worldly possessions, in those three wagons, and thought of the slow months of travel ahead, it must have seemed a tremendous undertaking. To us it was a lark.
restaurant may not have dogs. ENTERTAINING IN YOUR HOME 1. A centerpiece for the table should never be anything prepared by a taxidermist. 2. Do not allow the dog to eat at the table no matter how good his manners are. PERSONAL HYGIENE 1. While ears need to be cleaned regularly, this is a job that should be done in private using one's OWN truck keys. 2. Proper use of toiletries can forestall bathing for several days. However, if you live alone, deodorant is a waste of good money. 3. Dirt and grease under the fingernails is a social no-no, as they tend to detract from a woman's jewelry and alter the taste of finger foods. DATING (OUTSIDE THE FAMILY) 1. Always offer to bait your date's hook, especially on the first date. 2. Be aggressive. Let her know you're interested: 'I've been wanting to go out with you since I read that stuff on the restroom wall two years ago.' 3. Establish with her parents what time she is expected back. Some will say 10:00 PM; others might say 'Monday.' If the latter is the answer, it is the man's responsibility to get her to school on time. 4. Always have a positive comment about your date's appearance, such as, 'Ya'll sure don't
Early one evening we drove into Council Bluffs, then a village of a few hundred inhabitants, swarming with emigrants, humming with talk of the plains. Father
Uncle Isaac planned to finish provisioning there, the last chance to buy supplies for many hundreds of miles. If possible, too, they wanted to join a horse train with which to travel. Cattle and horses, it had been found, did not work together successfully. The slowness of the cattle fretted and irritated the horses. The cattle, too, spoiled the pasture. It was very important that our teams should find grass to their liking. We camped on the low ground, down the river from the town, among a small village of emigrant wagons and tents. Everyone seemed in high spirits. Here and there a banjo was thrumming or a group singing. After supper that night as Florence and I were in the tent helping Mother make our beds, we heard laughing and shoutsweat much for a fat gal.' WEDDINGS 1. Livestock, usually, is a poor choice for a wedding gift. 2. Kissing the bride for more than 5 seconds may get you shot. 3. For the groom, at least, rent a tux. A leisure suit with a cummerbund and a clean bowling shirt can create too sporty an appearance. 4. Though uncomfortable, say 'yes' to socks and shoes for this special occasion. 5. It is not appropriate to tell the groom how good his wife is in the sack. DRIVING ETIQUETTE 1. Dim your headlights for approaching vehicles, even if the gun is loaded, and the deer is in sight. 2. When approaching a fourway stop, the vehicle with the largest tires always has the right of way. 3. Never tow another car using panty hose and duct tape. 4. When sending your wife/girlfriend down the road with a gas can, it is impolite to ask her to bring back beer. 5. Never relieve yourself from a moving vehicle, especially when driving. 6. Do not lay rubber while traveling in a funeral procession. TWO REASONS WHY IT IS HARD TO SOLVE A REDNECK MURDER: 1. All the DNA is the same. 2. There are no dental records.
ing outside. We ran out. At a camp near ours a rowdy group were guying a man who seemed almost insane. He was chasing the others with a stick and vowing he would "clean out the crowd." We edged close to get better view. One of the men would sing: “Look out, boys, why don't you be quick? Here's a wild Irishman with a big stick.”
The man would start toward him brandishing his club, but another would take up the song and he would forget the first and start for the second. It was all very funny, but Uncle Isaac saw us there and called us away, so we didn't see how the matter ended. We heard the song many a time, however, for Robert and Darius never forgot a rhyme. The next morning, while Father was in the town with one of the wagons and Mother was washing the dishes, using a wagon tongue for a table, a horse broke loose from some men who were trying to harness him and charged wildly through the camp, rushing past groups of people who scattered in all directions. It was coming straight toward our tent. Baby Charles was lying on the ground, directly in its

HOW TO START A FIGHT
One year, I decided to buy my mother-in-law a cemetery plot as a Christmas gift... The next year, I didn't buy her a gift. When she asked me why, I replied,
"Well, you still haven't used the gift I bought you last year!"
And that's how the fight started..... ••••• My wife and I were watching Who Wants To Be A Millionaire while we were in bed. I turned to her and said, 'Do you want to have Sex?'
'No,' she answered. I then said, 'Is that your final answer?'
She didn't even look at me this time, simply saying, 'Yes..' So I said, "Then I'd like to phone a friend."
And that's when the fight started... ••••• I took my wife to a restaurant.

path. Horrified, we started toward him but the horse was nearer than we. Just as it seemed his great feet would crush the little fellow, he stopped, stepped carefully and slowly over the baby, then ran madly charging away. It was a terrible fright for us all, but as Florence said, "That horse wasn't so bad after all."
The next day, as well prepared for the plains as Father and Uncle Isaac knew how to prepare, we crossed the Missouri River to Omaha. That ferry trip was my first boat ride. We walked across the gangplank to the upper deck of the big boat - Mother, Aunt Caroline, and all of us children. The men drove the wagons onto the lower deck and unhitched the horses, to stand at their heads all the way across the river.
Who’s Afraid of Obamacare?
Lots of ordinary people are scared to death of the Affordable Care Act, more commonly called “Obamacare.” Near panic has set in with some insured, worried about losing their existing coverage, or only able to buy expensive health insurance policies to replace their present coverage.
Only the first row of teams remained hitched to the wagons, so that they could be driven off quickly at the Omaha landing. The tongues of the other wagons were slipped each under the rear of the wagon ahead so as to take up as little space as possible. It was a big boat, that ferry; three hundred wagons and hundreds of loose cattle were in that one load.
As the big steam flatboat edged slowly across the broad river toward the farther side, we watched the nearing bank with interest, glad to be on the
Enter Dan Anaya.
Dan is a cool, calm practitioner of that art of handling insurance policies; examining them, studying them, understanding the rules and regulations that govern them . . . and then applying that knowledge and expertise to guide his clients into affordable health care coverage. In the case of affordable care coverage, as offered by the Covered California package - relax. Dan has you covered.
It turns out Covered California offers premium assistance to eligible insureds. You might choose to call this premium assistance a subsidey. No matter. Same thing. Point is, if you are eligible, Covered California offers assistance on your insurance premiums. Would you believe $91 per month, your cost? $11? $7? How about $3? Yes, these figures represent your monthly cost for health insurance, if you qualify.
upper deck where we could see all about us. When at last the shore was reached and the ferry slips in place, it took a long time to unload, though each man hitched up and drove off as quickly as possible in the order in which he had driven onto the boat. We waited on the bank, watching the passing teams until our own appeared. As we started on, Father said, "There was a mule train on that ferry that I think it would be well for us to travel with. Mules and horses travel at about the same rate of speed and get on well together." "Would we want to travel with a mule train?" I asked. "Horses are so much nicer."
Father laughed. "We want to travel with any train that does not use cattle," he said, "And the bigger the train we can join, the better."
We were soon out of the little town, driving over low, swampy ground. Looking back from the seat where I had climbed, as Mother and Carrie and the baby were in the other wagons, I could see some of the mule teams following behind. Those mules became a familiar sight to us

Dan Anaya’s job is to go over your data, determine the number of persons living in your household, what the Modified Adjusted Gross Income is, and then determine what, if any, financial assistance is available to you.
Dan Anaya - The Insurance Answer Man
Just one of many examples of what Dan has done for his clients (and this is a composite study that could represent a number of people and circumstances):
A client had a total gross income of $160,000. By examining the client’s data, it was determined the Modiefied Adjusted Gross Income was $33,000 per year. This resulted in an insurnace premium cost to the client of only $91 a month. Total premium was $838, less the client’s payment of $91, left a net balance covered by

By going over your records, Dan may well be able to find enough legitimate deductions to lower your MAGI (Modified Adjusted Gross Income) to the point where you, too, can enjoy this tremendous assistance. In some cases he can even design a submission that would be completely covered by Medicaid. Naturally, each individual’s situation will be different and must be carefully analyzed by Dan in order to come up with the best possible answer for you.
What’s even better is that Dan is paid his commission by the insurance companies, not by you. He is fully certified, they know he knows what he is doing, they trust him to reprersent you professionally and to submit the correct information for all parties.
Yes, you can go to healthcare.gov, the federal website for the Affordable Care Act, and, in time, you may be able to figure out a plan and insurance premium. But do you want to wander through that maze and figure things out for yourself? Or would

Decided that wasn't such a good investment of my time. 'Course the situation wasn't helped much by the fact I had somehow lost my left ear's hearing aid. Been cleaning my desk daily in the hopes it would show up. Finally, after about two months of looking, I went back to the VA and ordered a new hearing aid.

Beautiful, well maintained, plenty of room. In the back yard, of all things, is a yurt! Built of top quality heavy beams, the covering is canvas (a yurt is kind of like an Asian tee-pee). Wooden floors, plenty of light through a skylight. Kim, Marty's girl friend, will likely use it for yoga, meditation, and such. It also has a futon type bed so is handy as an additional guest room, one that kids or adults would both enjoy.
Really happy for Marty. He's never owned a home of his own and he's one of those guys that is always fixing things up and making them better. He'll be in his own element here. Not as close to the beach as his present rental is but he'll make do.

Elsewhere in this week’s edition of The Paper you’ll find a story about Dan Anaya, whom I referenced in last week’s column about insurance and how to deal with “Obamacare,” otherwise known as the Affordable Healthcare Act.
Unlike others, who bitch and moan about Obamacare, Dan has gotten certified to administer the plan, has studied it in depth, and has come up with creative solutions to use the ACA (Affordable Care Act) for the benefit of his clients. He has one client, for example, with a total household income of around $160,000. By following the guidelines to the letter, using allowable deductions, Dan managed to structure that client’s plan so that his client’s monthly health insurance premium was only $91! You can read the details on page 3.
I'm having members of my family go to Dan. He should be able to qualify each of them for premiums as low as $7 to $11 per month! If you’re interested, give Dan a jingle at 760.744-3600 ••••• Congratulations to those rascals at Showcase Moulding in

Council it appears that there is unanimous support for the proposed changes based on the council review of earlier submissions, which were very similar to the final product.
If the City Council approves the panel’s plan, Escondido will switch to district elections as part of the settlement agreement in a 2011 voting rights lawsuit claiming at-large elections have harmed Latinos. The settlement requires the city to have a majority-Latino district and the commission’s recommended boundaries meet that goal. The city’s urban core, under the proposed map, is bordered primarily by Escondido Creek, El Norte Parkway, Centre City Parkway and Citrus Avenue. This has a heavy Latino population. A second district would include the southern portion of the city’s urban core, the Old Escondido Historic District and the city’s southeastern neighborhoods.
Evelyn and I both wish you and yours a very enjoyable Thanksgiving. Bon apetit!
A third district would include the city’s northeastern and northwestern neighborhoods. And fourth and final district would include the southwestern portion of the city.

December 4th is the next time the proposed map will be reviewed, this time by the City Council. Under the consent decree, once the boundaries are established, Escondido must start using the new districts in the November 2014 election.

The Last House
All that day we had not seen the sun, and as evening came on, the clouds grew heavier. A drizzle began which soon changed to a downpour. We had our first experience of a prairie schooner in the rain. I climbed back with Robert and Darius and, curled on the rolls of bedding, listened to the patter. "Don't touch the wagon top," Father said' "The canvas will leak if you do, wherever you touch it." Of course I tried the experiment and filled my sleeve with water. I didn't try it a second time.
Splashing along over the swampy ground listening to the beat of the rain was fun, but I wondered what kind of camp we could make that night.
Suddenly our wagon stopped. I sprang up to discover the reason. Father jumped down over the wheel and went to a house by the roadside, one of the very few houses we saw after leaving Omaha. Presently he came back and announced that we were to stay at the house that night.

Bonsall Woman’s Club to Hold Annual Christmas Tea
The Bonsall Woman’s Club invites one and all to its 21st
We drove into a big barn and from there ran to the house, thankful for the warm fire that greeted us and the good roof, the last one we were to have over our heads for over four long months.
The next day dawned bright and clear. After a good breakfast, we started on, glad of the sunshine. As we left the Missouri River the ground became less swampy. It lay about us, a vast flat grassy plain. Father and Uncle Isaac, anxious to find the grass unspoiled for the horses, wanted to travel rapidly at first to leave the cattle trains behind.
After lunch that day Florence and I ran on ahead of the wagons. The road lay before us, a single straight track through thick, high grass. Something moving caught my eye. "Look!" I gasped, pointing in horror to the road ahead. Snakes were no novelty to me, but such a snake! Its head was in the grass on one side of the road and its tail in the grass on the other. All Florence saw was a quivering in the grass; she had not looked quickly enough. I caught her hand and we raced back to the wagons. "What's the trouble?" Uncle Isaac called as we ran to him.
"I saw a snake," I told him. "It was longer than the road is

He laughed and pulled us up over the wheel. "Seeing things a bit, I fancy," he said. "We'll get used to these little creatures before we reach Oregon." "It wasn't little," I said indignantly. "Wait till you see its track." When we reached the spot, he climbed out and looked at the track a moment, whistled softly and said: "I'll give it up. I think I'd have run myself." It was a day or two before I really enjoyed walking again. The Daily Train
Keeping ahead of the mule train, we traveled on for two or three days, Father often asking the horsemen who were coming and going between Omaha and the (to us unknown) West, for news of a horse train that we might join. He heard several times of the Daily Train that had crossed the Missouri a day ahead of us. At last one evening after traveling fast all day, we saw their camp ahead. For some reason, a fortunate circumstance for us, they had been delayed. We drove up and Father and uncle Isaac went into their camp to talk with their captain. While Tom and Chris were pitching our tent, the mule train arrived and stopped near us. I

saw some men leave the wagons and go over to the group where Father was talking.
It was such fun those days to get our tent pitched and our stove set up and our beds made that I soon forgot the consultation going on, in trying to help Mother. I had never worked very much at home, and now people seemed to find my help a bit doubtful. Three years before, I had been very ill, so ill, in fact, that though I had become strong again, I had not since grown at all, excepting, Carrie said, my eyes and yellow hair, which only frequent bobbing would keep in check. Always I had been sent out to play, as Father thought fresh air the best medicine for me. I had found the plan a very satisfactory one but now, as everything had to be done outdoors everything seemed like play.
Chris lifted our food box down from the front of the wagon, and Carrie built a fire in the Russian iron camp stove while Mother was peeling potatoes and parsnips. Soon they were steaming in iron pots on the stove, and some of our wild crab apples were simmering in the brass kettle. Then Mother made biscuits which baked

"Nah, she can order for herself." And that's when the fight started..... ••••• My wife and I were sitting at a table at her high school reunion, and she kept staring at a drunken man swigging his drink as he sat alone at a nearby table. I asked her, "Do you know him?" "Yes," she sighed,

When I arrived home one day, I found her seated in the tall grass, busily snipping away with a tiny pair of sewing scissors. I watched silently for a short time and then went into the house. I was gone only a minute, and when I came out again I handed her a toothbrush. I said, "When you finish cutting the grass, you might as well sweep the driveway."

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
The Birth of Israel One Version, Anyway
Ask five Jews and five Arabs how the birth of modern-day Israel unfolded and you’ll probably get 10 different versions. Here’s one that, hopefully, comes close to the mark.
Israel, as we know it today, was formed on May 14, 1948, by United Nations resolution. Long-time leader David BenGurion announced that “by virtue of the national and historic right of the Jewish people and the UN resolution, (We) hereby proclaim the establishment of the Jewish State in Palestine – to be called Israel.” The leaders of five Arab nations, Jordan, Lebanon,

Syria, Iraq, and of course Palestine, bitterly disagreed with the UN decree and the fighting began.
The build-up to the fierce conflict, which continues today, all began in the early 20th century. After World War I, Great Britain was given control of Palestine as a mandate from the League of Nations (the forerunner of present-day United Nations). Jews living in Palestine had been struggling for their own Jewish state to be situated within Palestine as early as the late 19th century. The Arabs, long settled in Palestine opposed such a state, and the British were unable to negotiate a settlement agreeable to both the Jews and the Arabs. So, after World War II, the British gave up and turned their mandate back to the newly-formed United Nations. Because of the brutality and the near extermination of the European Jewish people during World War II, demands for an independent nation increased dramatically throughout the world. Millions of dollars for support, primarily from Jews living in the United States, were sent to Israel for armament, supplies, equipment and other necessities for their survival.

beautifully in the oven of our wonderful new stove, and fried bacon and prepared gravy. How good it all smelled.
Carrie got out the dishes, a thick china plate and cup for each of us, and a knife and fork and spoon. How glad we were before the journey's end for those china dishes and for the stove. The tin dishes used by many were very hard to keep right. With the stove Mother could stand up to cook instead of having to bend over a campfire with her face in the smoke. When I watched some of the other women, choking in the fumes of the fires, their backs bent until they must have felt ready to break, I often thought, "I'm glad my mother doesn't have to cook that way." Our stove, too, burned very little wood, and on the treeless prairies, that was a great advantage.
When Father returned, everything was ready for our plates to be filled. We sat on the ground to eat. Father seemed much pleased. "It is all settled," he said. "We have joined this train. Mr. Daily, the captain, said they are glad to have us. They want all the men they can get. The mule train will travel with us, too, so we are with a very big train now and the big trains are the safe ones."
While we were eating we heard a disturbance in the direction of the road and saw another group of wagons arriving. Later in the evening when Father let me go with him through the big camp, I heard some men talking of the new party. "they are a mighty fine crowd to have with us," a man was saying. "Twenty extra men, if the Indians are troublesome, will be good to have around." "Where are they going?" another asked.
"To the mines near Boise. Most of them have been soldiers in the Union Army. Lucky they happened along. We have so many women and children with us." I quite agreed with the man. Soldiers would be good to have with us if the Indians were bad.
When we walked past their wagons I noticed that they had no tents. One man was playing jig tunes on a fiddle and another was telling a story that I very much wanted to hear. They seemed a happy party. During the whole trip that group of young men with their songs and stories and fiddles was an extremely popular section of the train. Many a difficulty they turned into a mere laughing matter.
When we returned to the tent, Florence and her mother and little two-year-old sister, Eoline, were sitting on the ground talking to Mother.
"We saw something," she said. "We saw an Indian. He didn't look very clean and he didn't wear many clothes. He just stood around and stared at Major. He didn't know what to think of his funny nose. Major didn't like him either. I wish he'd bite him. I don't like Indians."
"Major won't give them much of a chance to disturb our things if they want to," Father said. Major seemed to know what was being said and laid his flat nose on Father's knee to have his ears pinched. We were used to seeing people stare at him; a double-nosed pointer was not a common dog. He was a delightful playmate and we were proud of him. Father said he was a wonderful hunter as well as a good watchdog. The next morning as we were climbing into the wagons, Florence said, "Look, there is that Indian again. Look at Major." The dog was standing at the horses' heads, growling deep in his throat. He looked so vicious that we all laughed. The Indian was clad only in a breechclout, and carried a bow and arrows. He was the first one I saw on the plains. He stood looking wonderingly at Major's queer nose. When Father started the horses, the dog smoothed his hair and trotted away ahead of the wagon. The Indian
Not until we were lined out along the road did I realize the size of our train. Three hundred white-topped wagons stretched far out across the prairie. Very pretty they looked in the sunshine following the thread of road through the green grass. Riding back along the length of the train was a dark-faced, trim-looking man on a beautiful bay horse. He was looking closely at the wagons. As he passed he lifted his hat and very pleasantly said, "Good Morning." Father answered him, then said to us, "That is Mr. George, the scout for the daily train." "What does he do?" I asked.
"Oh, he will choose our camp grounds and find water, and decide what roads to follow. He is our guide and plainsman. We are like a little army and he and Captain Daily are our officers. A fine sort they seem, too."
"If we are an army, some of us won't be very good soldiers, I'm afraid," Florence said. "Charlie here couldn't do much with a gun." We all laughed at the idea of a baby fighting Indians.
"We don't need to fear Indians from present indications," Father said. "it has been a long time since they were troublesome. These fellows wandering around might steal something, but we don't need to fear them."
While we were eating our lunch that day, the Indian we had seen watching Major rode into camp again and sat on his pony looking at the dog. When Father had finished eating, he dismounted, came up to him and asked, "His nose hurt? Knife? Cut?" He pointed to Major's nose and to his own. Father laughed. "Oh, no," he said. "He's a double-nosed pointer. His nose isn't split. Their noses are always like that." “What he good for?"
"He's a good watchdog. Can't you see that you'd better keep away from him?" Major bristled and growled every time the Indian moved toward him. "You sell him? Give pony." He pointed to his horse. "No," Father said, "he's too valuable to eat."
"No eat!" exclaimed the Indian. "No eat! No-o-o! No-o-o-o! Keep dog. No eat him. Keep him. You sell him? Give pony." "No," Father said, "I don't need a pony and I do need the dog." "He hunt?" asked the Indian.
"Yes, he's a good bird dog, but I won't sell him." "Give two ponies."
"No, no I need the dog and I don't need the ponies. He doesn't like you, anyway." Father turned away and called Derby and Prince. They left the grass they were cropping and came to be hitched to the wagon. The Indian stood about for a moment longer, then sprang onto his pony and rode away.
"Major wouldn't be of much use to him," Winfield said as he put away the lunch box. "He'd like to bite him." "I wish he would bite him. I'm afraid he will steal him." Robert gave him some scraps from the lunch and really seemed afraid we would lose him. "You don't need to worry. No one would want him long with the disposition he shows when he does not like people." "Yes," Robert argued, "but they do steal, and they might get him."
"Major can take care of himself. We always have him with us anyway." The wagons were ready, so we started on. The

next day at noon the Indian was back, this time with two ponies to trade for the dog. When Father refused, he rode off looking very solemn. Robert was more anxious than ever, though Father assured him that Major was safe. That night he was at our camp with four ponies, little, rangy, spotted beasts that we could have no use for. Again, Father refused and the Pawnee rode off shaking his head. As he disappeared among the wagons I heard shouts of "Whoa! Whoa! Whoa, there!" accompanied by the sounds of a fighting horse. Chris Halligan, braced backward, his feet dragging stiffly on the ground in front, was trying desperately to hold a big stallion, one of Father's horses which had charged the Indian. The widespread mouth and big wicked teeth were within a foot of the Indian's head as the horse tried viciously to reach him. In spite of Chris's efforts, it looked as if another Indian would be scalped. Someone sprang to help hold the horse, and how that Indian ran!
When the laughter had subsided, Father said, "That ought to keep him away. He doesn't seem popular with our animals. I don't see what he wants of the dog anyway. Major certainly doesn't like him any better than the horse does. Whenever an Indian comes around, boys," he continued, "Warn him about that horse. He makes too much trouble." And so they men did. Whenever a red man appeared, he was told to look out for the horse, a very necessary warning for both the Indian and for us. The very smell of an Indian drove the horse frantic.
The next day, however, the Pawnee was back, though this time he kept a wary eye out for trouble. He offered five horses, then six, seven, ten. Finally Father said, "No, it doesn't matter how many horses you offer, or what you offer. I won't sell the dog. You havent' anything I need and I do need the dog. I won't sell him at all." The Indian left then, his face very sullen. Robert watched him anxiously. "I hope he will stay away, now," he said. "I don't like his hanging around." We never saw him again. A few mornings later, however, when Robert called Major, he did not come. We called and whistled in vain and looked for him for days. Many tears were shed for our pet, tears not only for our loss, but for Major's troubles also. He hated Indians so thoroughly that some very unfair advantage must have been taken of him, otherwise he could not have been stolen.

Our loss was not soon forgotten, though the strangeness of our surroundings kept us busy with unexpected experiences. Three Springs
One day we saw a strange cavalcade moving across the prairie. While they were still too far away for us children to see the nature of the train, we were watching it excitedly. As they drew nearer we saw a long line of Indian ponies, little wiry half-wild beasts loaded with, well, what not?
"Moving day for sure," Father said." "Where are they going? Why are they moving?" I asked.
"They are going to meet the buffalo herds as they come from the south," he explained, "And to follow them as they go north. They do that every year. They will follow them until they have meat to last most of the summer. In the fall they will meet them again and follow them toward the south."
We were watching a band of Pawnees moving, and a funny moving day it was. The long line of ponies, so long that we could never see them all at once, trailed over the plain. Bareback riders, their dirty blankets flapping, were herding the laden horses. Indian carry-alls, two long poles fastened one on either side of a pony, the long ends dragging on the ground behind, were loaded with valuables. Skins, tepees, lodge-poles, baskets and bundles of all descriptions, babies in their queer cradles, sick people in their beds, any too old or too young or too weak to sit on a horse, were loaded onto these queer vehicles, fastened in some way and dragged clattering and bouncing over the ground. Hanging in baskets slung on either side of a pony to balance were many children. Very funny they looked, too, peeping over the basket rims at us, but I sup-
pose that we looked just as strange to them. We watched them delightedly as they trailed past, I was glad, however, that I was not a sick Indian.
After we reached the sand hills that bordered the Platte River, we camped one night at a place that the scout said was called Three Springs. Within one hundred yards of each other were three big pools of delicious water. It was a beautiful camping spot. The sandhills about the green valley floor were covered with what looked like flaming red and yellow flowers. As soon as the wagons stopped, we children, Robert, Florence and I, ran across the grassy meadow-like bottom to gather the flowers. When we reached them we found that they were not flowers but the thick, fleshy leaves of a plant that grew about a foot in height. The waxy leaves were beautiful from a distance, but not pretty to pick.
Disappointed about our flowers, we ran on over the hills. The place was so lovely and the evening so pleasant that we wandered far. Though dusk was beginning to gather and coyotes were howling here and there, we played on. Knowing the coyote well, we had no thought of fear. Suddenly, however, another sound startled us. The long mournful howl of a big gray wolf wailed across the prairies. With one accord, play forgotten, we started for camp. We had wandered farther than we had thought. It seemed we ran for miles before we reached the wagons and felt safe once more. We had often been told not to go far away; such advice was not needed again for many a day.
At Three Springs was the first sutler's camp that we saw on the road. A brown circular tent housed a tiny store where provisions, medicines and liquors could be bought. The man had stopped following the army in the Civil War campaigns and with his little tent and wagon now catered to the emigrant trains. In his stock Father said
he saw quantities of beads and other trinkets for trade with the Indians. We grew accustomed to seeing these little stores, but I don't think we ever had to buy anything from them.
Occasionally as we traveled we would overtake another train and travel with them for a day or two; then, as our train was a fast one, we would leave them behind. Again we would rest the horses for a day and do washing or other work we could not do well while traveling. At such times a train might overtake us. Gradually, however, we drew away from the other trains. We had started early in April that we might find the grass fresh for our
horses, and the men were anxious to keep that advantage all the way to Oregon. Of course,
numbers of trains were ahead of ours, but we always found good pasture. A pleasant thing about being early, too, was the absence of dust. We were free from the clouds that surrounded later trains and made breathing hard and camping unpleasant. Quicksand
As the waters of the Platte River were high at that season of the year, fording was not safe and we stayed on the north bank. Later in the season emigrants saved many miles of travel by fording and re-fording the river. One evening after our camp had been made we saw the

The New Computer
Homer and his wife Mandy homestead in Montezuma Valley near Ranchita. Homer scratches out a living working as a ranch hand and doing odd jobs. Mandy runs their small chicken ranch and supplements income by making apple dolls and other crafts for the tourist traps in Julian. It’s a hard life and they both show it. Homer is wiry, rawboned and tough as leather. Mandy’s thin face has the drawn, careworn look of someone who is accustomed to scrimping and doing without. She almost never smiles and usually follows quietly behind her “I’ll do all the talkin” husband.
Thankful for 2013, Setting Goals for 2014
On Thanksgiving, we gather with family and friends to share a meal and reflect on the year. As Californians we have many things to be thankful for. We are fortunate to live in a state that can claim cultural, academic, geographic, economic, agricultural, and entrepreneurial diversity. This composition is what makes California unique.
To better represent our unique state, the legislature should work to remove barriers to prosperity and allow diversity in California to flourish. Too often new laws add regulations that prevent growth and eliminate opportunities for success. Instead of overregulation, the legislature should show its
Homer opened the door and walked in. Mandy was a couple of steps behind him lugging their old desktop PC. “Well I reckon its time to upgrade Ole Bessie,” he said cheerfully, “It works just fine fer me but Mandy says she needs Windows 7 fer her new quiltin program. I reckon we can use Mandy’s saved up egg money to upgrade Ole Bessie to Windows 7.”
We booted up “Bessie,” a PC we’d built for them in 2006. To upgrade to Win 7 would require changing out most of the components. I explained to Homer that an upgrade would cost nearly as much as a new one. I told him that they’d be better off taking a hundred dollar trade in on it and getting a new one.
“Well,” said Homer, “I guess computers is about the same as women. You’re money ahead gitten a new one rather than to tryin to keep the old one up. It’s a shame they don’t give ya no trade in on em,” Homer chuckled. I glanced over at Mandy. Her tired face showed no reaction.
to get a notebook this time so I can use it anywhere in the house.” Homer looked surprised at first and then he turned to me and said, “Mandy’s right, if we git a laptop I can carry it around in my pick-up and use it everywhere” We showed them several PCs and they picked out a fifteeninch ruby-red ACER notebook with carry bag and mouse for $595.
“With the trade on Ole Bessy that’ll come to $495 plus tax, right?” said Homer. I nodded. Homer grinned an rubbed his hands together, “Alright Mandy, pay the man and lets git this puppy home so I can see how it works.”
Mandy stepped up to the
counter and pulled a wad of money from her apron pocket. She silently counted the crumpled bills carefully smoothing each one. I looked over at Homer “Would you like to have your files copied over from Ole Bessy to your new computer?” I asked. Homer started to nod his head but Mandy raised her hand in front of him. “That won’t be necessary. I’ll pay full price because we’re not trading in Homer’s computer. Like he said, Bessy works just fine for him so I won’t be needing Homers old files in my new computer” Mandy pushed the stack of bills across the counter. Her pale blue eyes sparkled and her sweet smile lit up the room.
Mandy spoke quietly. “I’d like

San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond Keep the Green in the Holiday Season
There are several things you can do this holiday season to keep the green in San Marcos --- and I’m not just talking about shopping local, although that is important. Every time you make a purchase in San Marcos, a portion of the sales tax stays here for important services like fire protection, law enforcement and community programs.
But this week, I’m talking about sustainability. For instance, try to minimize waste when buying gifts by bringing your own reusable
shopping bag for purchases. Better yet, give environmentally friendly gifts that do not need wrapping like tickets to movies, concerts, gift certificates, houseplants or other things that do not come in packages.
You can reduce your electricity use by using LED lights, which use 90 percent less energy than traditional decorative lights. And consider using reusable cups, plates and silverware at your holiday parties instead of disposable ones to cut down on trash production. For more ways to keep the green in the holiday season, visit www.earth911.com

ceeded to back out into a torrential downpour. The wind was blowing 50mph, so I pulled back into the garage, turned on the radio, and discovered that the weather would be bad all day.
I went back into the house, quietly undressed, and slipped back into bed. I cuddled up to my wife's back; now with a different anticipation, and whispered, "The weather out there is terrible." My loving wife of 5 years replied, "And, can you believe my stupid husband is out fishing in that?" And that's how the fight started... ••••• My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary. She said, "I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 150 in about 3 seconds."
I bought her a bathroom scale. And then the fight started...... ••••• After retiring, I went to the Social Security office to apply for Social Security.
The woman behind the counter asked me for my driver's license to verify my age. I looked in my pockets and realized I had left my wallet at home. I told the woman that I was very sorry, but I would have to go home and come back later. The woman said, 'Unbutton your shirt'. So I opened my shirt revealing my curly silver hair.
She said, 'That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for me' and she processed my Social Security application.
When I got home, I excitedly told my wife about my experience at the Social Security office. She said, 'You should have dropped your pants. You might have gotten disability too.' And then the fight started... ••••• My wife was standing nude, looking in the bedroom mirror.
She was not happy with what she saw and said to me,
"I feel horrible; I look old, fat and ugly. I really need you to pay me a compliment.' I replied, "Your eyesight's damn near perfect."
And then the fight started........ ••••• I rear-ended a car this morning...the start of a REALLY bad day! The driver got out of the other car, and he was a DWARF!!
He looked up at me and said 'I am NOT Happy!'
So I said, 'Well, which one ARE you then?' That's how the fight started. ••••• The Ocean - as Perceived by Kids
1) - This is a picture of an octopus. It has eight testicles. (Kelly, age 6) 2) - Oysters' balls are called pearls. (Jerry, age 6)
3) - If you are surrounded by ocean, you are an island. If you don't have ocean all round you, you are incontinent. (Mike, age 7) 4) - Sharks are ugly and mean, and have big teeth, just like Emily Richardson. She's not my friend any more. (Kylie, age 6)
5) - My uncle goes out in his boat with 2 other men and a woman and pots and comes back with crabs. (Millie, age 6)
6) - When ships had sails, they used to use the trade winds to cross the ocean. Sometimes when the wind didn't blow the sailors would whistle to make the wind come. My brother said they would have been better off eating beans. (William, age 7) 7) - Mermaids live in the ocean. I like mermaids. They are beautiful and I like their shiny tails, but how on earth do mermaids get pregnant? Like, really? (Helen, age 6) 8) - I'm not going to write about the ocean. My baby brother is always crying, my Dad keeps yelling at my Mom, and my big sister has just got pregnant, so I can't think what to write. (Amy, age 6)
9) - Some fish are dangerous. Jellyfish can sting. Electric eels can give you a shock. They have to live in caves under the sea where I think they have to plug themselves in to chargers. (Christopher, age 7)
10) - When you go swimming in the ocean, it is very cold, and it makes my willy small. (Kevin, age 6) 11) - The ocean is made up of water and fish. Why the fish don't drown I don't know. (Bobby, age 6)
Lady is the Pet of the Week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society in Encinitas. She’s a 5 year old, 19 pound, Spayed, Female, Cocker Spaniel.
After taking Lady home for a “sleepover” an RCHS care provider said, “Lady came inside and politely touched noses with my cat. She plopped down on the dog bed and quietly watched me make dinner. Slept mostly through the night and occasionally snores lightly. I love this dog!” The $145 adoption fee for Lady includes up to date vaccines, veterinary exam, spay, and microchip. If you can't adopt right now, consider sponsoring a pet until it’s adopted. Meet your new cat, dog, or rabbit at Rancho Coastal Humane Society, 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas. Adoption hours are 11 to 5 Wednesday through Monday. For more information call 760753-6413.

The UN partitioned Palestine in 1948, forming a specific territory for the Jewish people. With that action, war ensued, with Israeli freedom fighters capturing land beyond their UN partitioned territory, thus increasing Israel’s holdings. Some 600,000 Palestinian Arabs were left homeless and forced into refugee camps situated in Lebanon, Gaza, Jordan, and Syria.
While Palestinian Jews and Arabs had lived peaceably side-by-side for many years, the UN decree set one against the other and the turmoil has continued since 1948.
Ironically, it is the Palestinians now who are demanding their own state, which is not unlike the struggle the Jews had endured for their own state prior to 1948. The two peoples have been fighting each other since the UN decree with no peaceable or workable agreement in sight. Most of the middle-eastern nations, except Egypt, have refused to recognize Israel and their right to exist. In 1978, Israel signed a peace agreement with Egypt, which has lasted to the present day.

‘Wagon Train’ Cont. from Page 10
scout riding out into the river to see if a crossing could safely be made. Florence and I, with many others, watched him as the beautiful bay waded deeper and deeper into the water. Suddenly the horse began to flounder. Instantly Mr. George turned him and he quickly regained his footing and waded to the bank. "We won't try it," the scout said. "Better to travel a few days longer than to take the risk. There's quicksand there." Later in the evening a small train that had been traveling with us for a day or two drove past us and headed toward the river. Mr. Daily and Mr. George hurried to them. "Are you thinking of trying it?" Mr. Daily asked. "Yes, we'll camp on the other side and save that big bend tomorrow. This is a good ford."
"I just tried it and found quicksand," Mr. George said. "It is very unsafe. I don't like to see you take such a chance." "Where did you go in?" asked one of the men.
"Out there, following that sand bar," Mr. George pointed. "The quicksand is very bad, you'd have a poor chance of getting across. " "We'll go upstream a bit," the man said, and followed by the other wagons, eight or ten of them, he drove into the water.
The river there, swollen by melted snows, was perhaps three hundred yards wide. Near the middle stood a small island. We watched them anxiously as they tried to follow the upper edge of the sand bar and pass above the island. They got on well, though the water was deep for fording, until they were nearly across.
Suddenly the leading team went down. We couldn't see them very well from the distance, but presently a man was on the bank. Somehow he got his horses out. By that time the other teams were floundering. Powerless to help, we watched them. One team, cut loose from the wagon, swam ashore, and a man swam out and fastened a rope to the end of the wagon tongue. Then with his horses he drew the floating wagon to the land. By this time most of the teams were swimming or struggling in the quicksand. Ropes were carried from the bank by swimming men, tied to the struggling teams, and with help from the men and horses on shore, they were finally all rescued. As the last wagon was drawn up the bank, a cheer rang across the water. We waved our congratulations. A
tragedy had been narrowly averted.
I heard Mr. George say as he left the bank, "We'll keep to the north side. That sort of thing won't do." One morning as we were hurrying to break camp and get started, I ran into the tent to roll up our bedding. We girls slept in a little room curtained off from the main part of the tent. As I shook the blankets apart and began folding them, getting them ready to roll, something dropped from the one I was holding - a slim reddish-brown creature about three inches long, with many, many legs. It darted wildly about and crawled under a blanket. I screamed for Father. He came running, carrying the hatchet with which he happened to have been working. Uncle Isaac and the others followed him. Father pulled back the blanket, and when he saw the thing, he chopped it in two with the hatchet. I screamed anew, for the ends ran, one each way, trying, I thought, to find each other and join together again. Father mashed them into bits too small to wiggle and told us it was a centipede and it might have stung us badly. Though I knew it was probably the only one I should see, it was hard to go to bed for a long time. A centipede is a poor bedfellow and I always fancied one was crawling in to keep me company. A few days later Florence awoke one morning and complained that her jaws were sore. Father looked at her when she came to breakfast and said, "So! You are taking your turn, are you?"
"I don't know what you mean," Florence answered.
"You will have to be my girl for sure for a while. If you haven't a nice case of mumps, I never saw one." Father went over and talked a moment with Uncle Isaac and Aunt Caroline. They all came back together and, after looking at Florence's jaws, decided it would be best for her to stay with us entirely until she was well. Little Eoline was the only one of us all who had not had the mumps and it was not necessary to expose her.
Florence slept with me at night and rode in our wagon, holding her poor sore jaws with her hands and trying hard not to feel the jar of the wagon. It was a poor time to choose for that ailment, and though we made her as comfortable as possible, she had some unhappy days. An Indian’s Breakfast
At night now, when we camped, we always corralled the wagons. They were arranged in a big circle, the
tongue of each wagon run under the rear of the wagon ahead to form a stockade. The tents were set up inside the circle, and after the horses had grazed as long as possible, they were tied to the wagon wheels, outside usually; but if there seemed any danger, inside of the corral. With guards set outside, we felt safe. After we had finished breakfast one morning, Mother was packing our lunch while Tom and Chris rolled up the tent. She had baked a big pan of biscuits which were to be the major portion of our noon meal that day. I was supposed to be putting away the dishes but was too busy watching a big Indian to work very fast.
He was going from tent to tent saying something to each group. Wherever he went he was received with a shake of the head and an evident refusal of some request. His face was growing more and more sullen. We had camped that night a little apart from the rest of the wagons and our party was the last to be approached. He had been refused by every other family, all of whom had been too busy to give him time or attention. As he came to us he pointed to Mother's biscuits and said, "How! Indian hungry."
"Give him his breakfast, Emily," Father said, and Mother filled a tin plate with the biscuits and set a plate of leftover hotcakes and a can of sorghum molasses on the oilcloth that was still spread on the ground for a tablecloth.
After pouring molasses over the biscuits, he squatted on the ground with the plate in his hand and began to eat, while we children stood around and watched him. Though he ate with his fingers, we were surprised to see how nicely he did it. He wasn't mussy, but such an amount as he ate! We watched him with wonder. He finished the biscuits and the pile of hot cakes, then pointed to the pan of bread, which Mother, thinking he might want more, had not put away. She set the pan before him and he ate and ate until all the bread for lunch, a lunch for ten people, too, was gone except two biscuits. Then he looked at Mother and pointed at the biscuits. "Papoose hungry," he said. "Take to papoose?" Mother said, "Yes, take it if you want to."
He broke open a biscuit, poured molasses over it, opened the front of his dirty buckskin shirt and thrust it inside.
Then he pointed to the other
November 28, 2013 - Page 15
biscuit and said, "Squaw hungry."
"Yes," Mother nodded. "Take it too." A second molasses-covered biscuit went inside his shirt against his brown body. Then he rose, gave a pull at his buckskin trousers and said, "Thank you. Good."
He looked around for Father, who was now waiting for him to go so we could follow the train, which was beginning to move away. He shook Father's hand and Mother's, then looked around at us children. "Your papooses?" he asked. "Indian see all?"
Father said, "Yes, they are all mine," and pointed us out to him, including Florence as his little girl. He shook us all by the hands, even little Charlie. He looked at us all sharply again as if he meant to remember us. Once more he said, "Thank you. Good," and went to where a pony was grazing. We had to build a fire at noon that day and we laughed a good deal about our short rations and the delicious lunch the squaw and papoose were to have. We didn't envy them those biscuits. Little did we dream, however, of the importance to us of having gained the favor of that dirty Sioux warrior. It was not the last time we were to see him. The Scare
The road wound along the Platte, generally within sight of the river, though occasionally the stream was hidden by sand hills. One day in those rolling hills occurred an incident which was to me, perhaps to us all, the most alarming event of our long journey. Father's team chanced to be leading the train. About noon we drove into a valley perhaps a half mile in width and two miles in length. The valley bottom was grassy and we found a good pool of water. Father stopped and turned his horses loose to graze. The other drivers did likewise, but instead of driving up and joining the head wagons as they usually did, for some reason that day they stopped with the train stretched out along the road for a mile or more.
The grazing horses moved quietly past us out into the valley. Derby and Prince were farthest away, but followed closely by our other horses and the rest of the teams. It was a quiet, beautiful little valley

Tom Fry, Retired Pastor from Church of the Nazarene Thanksgiving Day isn’t Thursday
Have you ever had to postpone a celebration? Birthdays are probably the most common. A midweek birthday is often celebrated on the following weekend. What about a major holiday celebration? Like Thanksgiving. Have you ever had to celebrate Thanksgiving on Friday?
When I was a kid my mother was a nurse and my aunt and grandparents were in the motel business, both 24/7 kinds of jobs. One year when work schedules collid-
Late is a different thing. It happened in our family when my in laws waited too long to make travel plans, and couldn’t get a flight until Friday. Our Friday Thanksgiving was just like Thursday, except the grocery stores were open if you forgot something. If we had hid the newspapers and calendars, no one would have known. Thursday, I’ll admit, was a little strange. We got up to watch the Macy’s Parade, but instead of being busy with a big dinner, we ate cereal for breakfast and soup for lunch. Friends called and told us about their big dinners. We could hardly tell them we’d had mac and cheese for dinner.
The lesson we learned is that Thanksgiving isn’t Thursday. It’s not Friday either. It’s an attitude of the heart that causes us to pause in the midst of our labors and remember that God has blessed us with all that we need. It’s an everyday kind of thing. Happy Thanksgiving.

‘Wagon Train’ Cont. from Page 15
surrounded by sand hills on which was a sparse growth of sage bushes and other low shrubbery.
While we were eating our lunch Win said, "I wonder what those Indians are doing out there."
We looked and Father went for his glass. We often saw Indians riding around us as we traveled, but the actions of these were unusual. Three Indians were riding furiously back and forth, perhaps a half mile away, first riding one way, wheeling sharply and riding back as hard as possible, only to turn and repeat the performance. Presently two more rode down the hillside and all five continued the strange actions. Father looked at them carefully. "They seem to be just riding," he said, but he was plainly puzzled. "There's not enough of them to bother about," he decided and we went on with our lunch, though still watching the red men wonderingly. At last one of the Indians left the group and came toward our camp. As he rode up, Father asked, "What are you doing out there?"
"Catch dog," he said and rode past us along the line of wagons. Father looked again with his glass. "There's no dog there." He turned to the group nearest us. "I don't like the way those Indians are acting," he said. "That rascal lied to me just now, too."
"We'd better tell the folks to look out," a man said and someone sprang onto a horse and rode back with a warning. Some of the wagons had not yet come through the hills into the valley.
The Indian who had been riding past the emigrants as they were quietly eating their noonday meal turned at last and rode swiftly back toward the others who had stopped and were apparently waiting for him.
As he reached them one of the Indians waved his arm. Instantly such a commotion as broke out on that hillside I cannot describe. From the brow of the hill rushed an Indian pony with two long poles tied to his collar and dragging on the ground behind. He was loaded from his ears to the ends of the poles with dried dearskins, tin cans, pans, - everything an Indian could find or devise to rattle or clang. Behind the pony, beating him to make him run and yelling at the tops of their lungs, came a band of
Indians. Instantly the whole hillside seemed alive with Indians. They seemed to spring from behind every bush and rock, and shrieking and howling they raced toward us. Our hearts stood still. If our horses stampeded, we were done.
As I said before, our English hunters were nearer the Indians than the other teams. Father seized his gun and started quietly among the horses, which were fast becoming excited, calling as usual, "Come, Derby come Prince, we want you. Come on Derby, come." The two horses were looking with quiet interest toward the Indians, but when they heard Father's voice, they turned as usual and whinnying and answer, trotted obediently to him. Our other teams followed them closely through the hundreds of horses that were fast becoming frantic. Instead of stampeding, however, when our horses trotted so quietly to Father, the whole band turned and moved back to the wagons. They were quickly caught, every horse and mule, quieted and fastened. The coolness of one team had saved them all.
The Indians, hundreds, thousands it seemed to me, their faces wildly painted, each feather headdress erect, rode furiously toward us, yelling madly.
As they neared us I heard Uncle Isaac's voice shout to Father, "John, you get that chief!" Farther off, another voice commanded, "Get your guns! Every man pick your Indian. Don't waste a shot!" When they came within gunshot the Indians faced a line ready and waiting. Every man and boy in the train stood with a gun in his hands.
The yelling ceased. The chief, suddenly smiling, rode forward saying, "How! How! Friends, no shoot! How." The others followed now, all smiling and offering their hands to be shaken.
Father and Uncle Isaac shook the big chief's hand when he held it out saying, "Friend, no shoot!" "We couldn't tell that from your actions," Uncle Isaac said. "Why are you doing this way?"
The Indians gave no satisfactory answer, but rode about, smiling at us all. Finally they wheeled their horses and raced back to the hills. It was a lucky day for us when Father bought Derby and Prince.
fEditor’s Note: And so we leave Miss Anna Dell Clinkinbeard, somewhere in the plains, probably in what is now Colorado. Anna lived until 1977 when she died in
Oregon at the age of 92.
