Cole Younger, now 17 and A man grown, hesitated between his loyal desire to join up and his bburiden duty to stay at home and work the land, in the end he listen ed to his mother, staying on at the family farm near Harrisonville' in Case County. Up at Cehlerville in Clay Couh ty, Dingus, now rising 14, underwent the same struggle but with less cause. The situation had hot yet deteriorated to he point of enlisting little better than 13-year- olds. He, like Cole, stayed on the * e. Moore Bros. RED HOT WEDNESDAY SPECIALS *t ^ Country SJ EGGS 3 dozen Dry Salt Meat Pork Neck Bones J/2 Gallon Ice Cream land, that land being the Center ville farm of his new stepfather, Dr. Reuben Samuel. Dr. Samuel was a quiet, well- Educated medical doctor to whom Dingus looked with great respect. He was, in fact, the first real father the boy had knovvn his na ural parent and his mother's first husband, the Rev. Robert James, an ordained minister had abandoned his family to disappear in the California gold rush of '49. Three weeks after the Soulh's first smashing victory at Bull Run, Sterling Price and his Missouri Guard clashed at Wilson Creek with the first regular Union troops to penetrate the area. Frank, a boot corporal in Price's irregular cavalry, : distinguished himself in the victorious action and was granted a 30-day furlough. On his return from Wilson reek, Frank became the idol of his clansmen in general and of young Dingus in particular. Shorty, reports of the latter's boast- :ul accounts of Frank's rebel ex ploits arrived in the Union town of Liberty. As promptly, the commander of the Union state mili- Ja garrison saw his duty. Within he hour his men were riding. Before daylight of Aug. 15, Frank was considering' the freedoms of Confederate speech from within ;he limestone walls of Liberty's Union lockup. Shortly before noon the garrison commander received telegraphed nstruclions from his area corps commander to the following un- lappy effect: State Sen. Erasmus R. Cole, firstly a loyal blood-cousin of Jesse's mother and only secondly a lip-service Union man, had made official protest to the arrest. The Senator personally guaranteed the future loyalty of i'oung James, and demanded his mmediale release on parole. Frank went free before the day was up. Some lime during the week of Aug. 20, 1861, Frank slipped his Union parole to vanish into the nameless ranks of Charley Quan;rills Confederate guerrillas. It became -at once inevitable that ;he 14-year-old Jesse would at,empt to follow him. The favorite tale is that of the serious - minded, Bible - quoting Frank, prevailing upon his young' er brother to return to the Sam uel farm and "stay by his faith- ful mother's side.' The simple fact is that Quantrill himself laughed the baby - faced candidate out of the bandit camp hastening his exit with a well-placed caval- fore dusk. Angered at failing to find the wanted man in hiding there, they seized Dr. Samuel with the announced intention of jailing him as a Southern sympathizer. ry boot.
