2. HUTCHINSON DATLY NEWS, MONDAY, APR1I, 18, 1895J. m SANTA FE TRAIL By MRS, J. & HUDSON. tOWyTlght, 1MB, by American Presa Association.] u.J «s*>: ______ "Who know$ it wasn't that womant" Spread out the map ngnin, Put your finger down nt the town of Groat Bend. In southern Kansas, on the Arkansas river. Annihilate hy a backward stop of forty years all signs of the white man's prescnuo that now lie oo thick throughout tho length and breadth of this fertile) valley of the "Nile of Kansas'* —tho mysterious stream whoso moun tain fed waters are said to flow more below ground than above. Picture a vast rolling prairio covered with all the shades of grass that over grew. Fresh and spring green in the sloughs, lush and long and Juno greon on the river margins, burned brown on. the southern slopes and misty and gray on tho uplands where tho buffulo grass spreads. Tho river is hidden by it, Higher than a man's head the runk grass waves in every passing breezo or stands motionless iu the August sun. To the water's very edge the traveler must go to look upon its slow sliding flood. Pown from tho higher lands, north ana souin, come narrow pamswonToy the feet of tho mighty buffalo as ho journeys with tho Bcasons and halts and stamps at tho river brink while ho slakes his thirst. His "wallows" dot tho uplands hero and there—bare, round patches ten or twelve feet across, whero his lordship has rolled and turned on overy journey till the tough sod is worn through and not a spear of grass sprouts. At right angles to these deep, slim paths run tho Santa Fe Trull; at times near the brink of tho rivor, again cutting across a loop from bend to bend, and them climbing to, the highlands to avoid a marsh or deep ravine. Along its track is strung a long cavalcade, tho returning Santa Fe train for the summer of eighteen hundred and fifty-one. Rows of immense covered wagons, four abreast, and drawn by many yoke of oxen, weary plodders with heads downbeat and heavy yokes rubbing their galled necks. Pack mules with their tight padded panniers strapped on their sides and their hugo oars dap­ ping in time with their trim feet. Bronchos with gay, careless riders, and with none, nipping the tondcrest tufts of gross and weed tops that?aro to their liking. Frontiersmen with furtive eye and over ready rille, chid in buckskin and cottouado of indescribable cut United States infantry in decidedly undress uniform, weary of the march and ' thirsty for war—Indians, Spaniards, ambush, anything, they said, to break tho monotony of sun and boat, the climbing of one "rise" to see another beyond, and tho never ending sea of grass. Stragglers from nobody lftnew whence, going nobody knew where. The nameless hangers on, outcasts and speculators in whatever was easily carried and could be dishonestly won. Of little children thoro are none, thank heaven; though two young women livo in oue of the middle brains—safer there, the captain thinks. The wagon in which they ride is garlanded with flowers. The year is nearing its autumn, and tho season of yollows und purples has como. Goldenrod feathers the ground over acres und acres, and stands in solid rows of crinkled gold along tho broken lines of tho trail. Tall, purplish flower spikes bend stiffly bofore the Bouth wind, liko bayonets in araiorcd hands, and shako a spicy perfume from the sensitive plaut at their feet. Here and thoro a clump of fringed gentian hides behind a screen of compass weed; and the modest cyclamen, the violet of autumn, turnsits sweet white face down toward its own heart leaves, blushes a tender pink, fades, twists its stalk into a spiral and bends to earth to deposit its ripened Beeds, whero they may be cherished by its own sub-1 Btance. All these blossoms and many more, twined with tho black and reddish ' water grasses, hang from tho dusty wagon bows. But now tuft flower beds are almost past, buffalo gross stretches for many miles ahoad, and then the desert sand, alkali dust and cactus. The wagDn master's wife told her companion what was before them and hade her cherish her flowers well. She did for their own mikes. But in tho folds of hor only other gown, between the leaves of a prayer book that bad seen better days, wero the blossoms she pluckod along the "King 'B highway" ori the Missouri hills, and none of those latter ones wero ever put with them. The trains had been out now many days. More than a hundred miles back, at Council Grovo, on tho Neosho river, they had hulted for organization. That . point was tho final rendezvous for west bound trnins. There they oloctod a commander for tho expedition and beyond that point tho wagons nover fell out. of their regular ordor in the lino of march. . Four long, toiling teams moved constantly forward side by sido. Thonfour more cume on abreust, und so to tho end. This arrangement was for tho purpose of bettor protection against hostile Indians, for whom a cousttuit look' out waskept, anil with whom encouuters were not unknown by the traders, though treaties had beon made by tho government with every tribe through whose territory the Santa Fe Trail ran, by tho terms of which all trains were to pasB along its track unmolested. That tho governnent ontertained a doubt of tho Indians holding to this compact was evidenced by tho fact that tho great road, 800 miles long, was made 200 feet wide, so that tho caravans might'be kept compact and defensible. Tho delay at Council Grove had boon longer than usual, owing to the difficulty of agreeing upon a captain. It developed that there hnd been a tacit understanding to elect Wagon Master King to that responsible position, and his sudden and comploto disappearance left the company at n loss for a competent head, or at least for ono in whom they all had con fidenco. Tho place obviously 'required a man of nerve and quick decision, but above nil ho must bo possessed .of well known fighting qualities. King had c reputation as an Indian fighter, and ul though ho was not a favorito personally, it was conceded that he could bo trusted and that he would be brave in tho face of danger. What do you suppose ever took King off, anyhow?" said ono of tho mon, after they had canvassed tho subject repeated ly and yet had not agreed upon a cop- tain. His question seemed to be addressed to the camp in geuoral, and after moment's silence and the usual puzzling of brows whenever the lost wngon master's name was mentioned, a soldier who was lying on tho grass raised upon his elbow and said: "I don't know as you have asked mo, but I believe this man yon are talking about went away because ho saw somebody aboard the Polar Star that he didn't want to meet. Who knows it wasn't that woman?" The men looked at tho speaker in blorik astonishment, but no ono contradicted him. It was tho first probublo solution that had been offered, and naturally it was not long in finding lodgment in every man's mind. Then one added: "He wus afeard, and watched, hey? Likely enough!" And another said: "Smart fellow; but he's no coward." The repacking done, after the jolting shnt them out, but his glance always camo back satisflod. I calkilatc you kin turn in and sleep tonight, toys," said ono of tho American wagon masters, "from tho way the old captain looks. Nary a red devil in sight, nor a sign of one." Yes," said unother, "hit looks like fair sailin, but I reckon we'll all sleep hotter if wo hev a good strong picket line out. These byor is mighty dangerous parts, pardner. I 've seed tho time when I thought nothin couldn't tempt me back hyer agin." Well, don't tell us about It tonight," said a third, "we've got soldiors with us and we've hod a long pull today; let's havo a good night of it and take that yarn another time—it might give us bad dreamB, you know, old chap," Those who had never heard the story of the plainsman 's adventure at Pawnee rock were disappointed to have it shut off in this summary manner by one who had listened to it on numerous previous trips, but all were weary from the day's march, and when the pickets were Btationed for the first watch every man lay down with a restful sense of security. Nothing but the stars lighted the great plains and tho little group of tired sleepers in tho corral. The fires had been put ont or covered up before dark, and there was scarcely a sound oven to betray the preaenoe of the coiup. Occasionally an ox moved a clumsy foot, or a driver in his heavy sleep called out u lusty "Wo haw, Buck," but tho sentinels heard little, save the scampering of tho night animals in tho grass and now and then the far off bark of a coyote. It must have been two hours after midnight. The "watch" had given place to the "relief" and all was still again. Suddenly ono of tho ponies whinnied, loud and clear, and two or three of his mates sniffed sharply and roso upon their feet. Tho noiso did not waken many of tho sleepers, but Captain Jose was up in an instant and making the rounds of the pickets. They had heard nothing—seen nothing. Tho little half tamed broncho had startled them with a sudden sniff of tho air Thcro is tho answering signal; yonder to tho south," cried some one on tho lookout. Yes, there it was, a faint, unsteady pennon of blue smoko wavering in tho wind. Tho Indians saw it, but made no sign—they knew it would come. The stolid meal went on, the wary oyeskeep- ing watch only on the corral BO that no white man might creep to the river or the springs for woter. Jose Valdez wore an anxious look. He had said that it would take the Indians at least four hours to come to tho aid of fho attacking band. Till thin," added the Irishman, "ye can slape or ate or make your wills, b'ys, as yo like. Pat Duffy will olano his gun and bo ready fer the divils, bad cess to thim." MoBt of the command followed Pat's examplo and cleaned their rifles, but they could not joke nor mako light of their predicament, it was' too serious; that was plainly indicated by the facos of Captain Jose and the other old plainsmen.

NEWS CO., Hutchinson, Kan and settling ot the rreigut between Westport and Council Grove, and tho cattle winded and refreshed, it became necessary to decide upon u captain aud go on. An old Mexican plainsman was chosen—a man who had mudo many overlaud journeys, had seeu much hazardous service and could speak broken English and a number of Indian languages, besides Spanish. But he hud never before commanded an expedition across the plains. Just why, nobody seemed to know, or to bo willing to Bay. Perhaps because of an undefined fear that in a pinch he would "flunk." It Boemcd to bo his duo that ho should onco havo tho honor of commanding a train, and though these overland mariners wero not men to take great risks for honor's sake, they ventured a little this, time and elected old Jose Valdcz to the captaincy. With a great show of loyalty the crown of authority was put upon his brow, and many of his followers protested that they hud long wished to see tho thing done. Happy old Josel lib started the expedition with a flourish. His glittering black eyes danced, for they had not yet lost their luster, and they could see a moving object on the plains farther away than many that wore a score of years younger. "His pride "would make him do his best," they eaid; "everything would bo safe." And his pride did spur the old captain constantly. It aroused liis ambition to mako tho quickest trip that had beon known for years, to have the most comfortable camping grounds, and tho best time generally. Occasionally he would bring his mind back to duty with a start because be had discovered himself in Santa Fe, recounting tho auccesB of the expedition under his leadership to his stay-at-home comrades, into whose ears ho had hoped for ten years to be ablo to pour this proud tale. From Council Grove to the great bend of the Arkunsas every thing had moved along just to his liking. It was at this point that the trail struck tho river whoso course thoy would follow for a hundred and fifty miles. They had rounded tho point and were bearing more toward the south. Pawnee rock would be tho noxt camping place. This rock is ono of nature's ramparts. A rugged, isolated pile of brown sandstone cropping out of tho prairie many miles from tho foothills of the Rocky mountains, it is the first startling guideboard to tho groat range. For many years—at least half a century— it was known as ono of tho most dangerous points on the plains. Almost within its shadow the Santa Fe Trail crosses the routo of the Indion tribes that traveled both north and south after buffalo, Probably for hundreds of years before tho Santa Fe Trail was used hy white traders and trappers this great north and Bouth trail was followed by tho huutors of tho prai­ rio tribes. But a fow miles away from the rock tho Pawnoe river empties into the Arkansas, and the banks of both streams afforded fine camping grounds. Tho grazing was good in tho valleys and tho rock ulforded protection from foes and shelter from wind and fire. Whoever first gained its summit was almost im pregnably fortified aguinBt enemies BO long as supplies of food and water and arrows or ammunition lasted. Many mon whose names are now conspicuous in tho history of this country havo Bpont anxioua dayB ond nights on Pawnoe rock, and but a fow years ago many nainos oould be read upon its Bciurod face. In eighteen hundred and fiity-ou hundreds of them, cut in the soft stone by handB that showed all degrees of civilization and seinibarbarity, were graven in the base of this old landmark The camp site was selected just beyond riiio Bhot from the rock. The wugons woro formed into a corral, and after the cattlo had been watered at tho rivor and horded on tho banks in tho grass during tho long twilighty they wore driven into tho inelosuro, for the night Captain Jose cast his searching O,VOH over tho plains many times bofore night at lust and then the piercing call, as if to some of his kind beyond the reach of human seuses, but within tho knowledge of his acute by heredity aud a life that ranged over long distances undulled by confine ment and disuse. . Tho entire camp was aroused. Silently and with the utmost caution thoy wore told to prepare for defense. With the first ray of light Captain Joso said they might expect an attack from the Indian —either the Pawnees or Cheyonnes. All the experienced plainsmen in tho command agreed with him. It was not tin; first time they had been warned of the approach of the enemy by a Mexican pony. To be ready to repulse a swift and deadly onslaught from tho stealthy dogs must be their tactics now, they said, and every man was posted rifle in hand and many rounds of ammunition in MB belt. These precautious seemed overdone to the men who were making their first trip across tho plains and to some of the raw recruits nmong tho sol diors, but a short experience with- the frontiersmen hnd already taught ttiein that words are cheap coin in the estimation of that roving and hardy community and they wisely held their peace. "Hist! hist!" from Captain Jose, who natuially foil into tho dialect of Hie Mexican under excitement. All eyes wero bent into the grass as they had boon directed an hour before. The gray light was sifting into tho air but thinly as yet, aud strain their vision as they might (hey could see but a few feet away. Still, as they looked it grow lighter and lighter, and the gross rustled, with a passing breeze, perhaps; or, wus it a crouching form creeping on nearer and nearer—a dozen! a score! hundreds! On every sido the grass was alive with Indians, aud simultaneously with Captain Jose's command to "fire!" they sprung forward yelling like demons and falling over one another in a frenzy of surprise and rage. • The reception was too much for tliem; thoy foil bock, leaving many dead and wounded within a few feet of tho corral, a ghastly and writhing cordon ubout the barricade. The Indians hud planned a surprise for the camp. They thought to steal up to the corral and charge upon it so suddenly in tho uncertain light that thoy could kill many of tho freighters while . ot upon the ground asleep. The old Mexican had outwitted them. Tho green mon under his command set up a shout of victory, but it was J quickly checked. Savo your breath," said a veteran of the trail, "the enemy is repulsed, bnt not vanquished, begorrat We may be here for days yit, and we may niver git on agin; the saints preserve us!" Repulsed, but not vanquished; that was the situation comprehended instantly by every man familiar with Indian warfare. Up through the now fast coming light shot a beacon of fire from the highest point of tho great rock, the Indians' telegraph for ages, lighted on that sum point" for tho summoning of friendly tribes before the white man over crossed the .Mississippi from tho east or Coronado traversed the plains from tho west. Higher and higher it blazed as tho suv- agOB piled dried grass and brush on its bed. Long tongues of flame leaped up into the air, clouds of smoke rolled away over the prairie, and then it all died out as suddenly as it was kindled. The ashes of the light stuff blew away on the next wind that touched the top of the old rock, and before the rolling ball of smoko had melted into the nearest white floating cloud the beacon fire was out. But it had done its swift errand well. The Indians down by tho 'river and those on the rock, all now plainly visible from the corral, went oalnily about the preparations for the morning meal. There wero no squaws with the band and no lodgo poles woro carriod; it was evidently a war party. Breakfast was made ready in the corral too. There was no hunger wherewith to season the food, but overy man know tjiat he must oat to fortify himself for battle—porhupa that ho might be able to summon courage .to moot death bravely.
