SAVING A HERD
BY BUFFALO BILL
FltOM TF.UU TALES OF THE
cx3PYitiaKT.t9oa.sr William r ooDr
UNE 18, 18CO, under General Eu
geno A. Cnrr, saw us hunting fur
n band of Indian "dog soldiers"
who were, like the Irishman's
Ilea, here, there niul nt times every-
Nebraska, Colorado and Kansas were
nil excited oter the depredation of
these renegades. They had murdered
rlKlit nnd left, hnd eaptnred several
hundred mute and horse nnd destroy
ed wagon tralnx, an we eotild tell by
the trail of Rome shod nnlmnl. What
Intensllled our desire to punish or cap
ture them was the fact that they had
tome while captives Mr. Alderdlce,
whoso husband nnd thlldreii they had
killed, nnd Mr. WcIrcI, whose hus
band and family had also beeu mas
sacred, and these two women were
known to be still nllte nnd with them.
At last we got ou their trail nnd had '
almost dally skirmishes, nnd (leneral i
Carr decided to use some stratagem
to see If we could not get them In a
tight place. He consulted with me,
and after a day of continual skirmish
ing and a night attack he ordered a
retrograde movement, which created
a good deal of discussion lietwceti the
ofiiccrs and men ut the time. Appar
ently abandoning tho pursuit, ho re
tired as If going back to the fort, nnd
In two or three day, n he surmtscd,
the Indiana were nowhere to be seen,
having come to the conclusion that
wo were disheartened and that they
could with Impunity take a little re
pose themselves. This was exactly
what our wily commander desired, as.
he Intended to retrace hi stciw and
catch them sleeping. So, being sure
that there were no Indiana In sight,
he packed nil the grub possible ou the
mules, burned the wagon and Im
pedimenta and Immediately started to
mnko forced marches In their direc
tion. As I had surmised, they were head
ing for Summit Springs, n few miles
south of the I'latte river nnd among
the sand hills, which formed n beau
tiful little oasis, us It were, for a
camp ground. Striding their trail by
Judging from th.ir dally catnpflres, wo
made In one day the came dUtaucc
that they made In three, but when
near the Springs, as wo caw the trail
getting fresher, we covered four of
their day's Journeying, with nil their
Impedimenta nnd village out lit, In one
day nnd lauded nt the opportune mo
ment ready for business, while the ene
my had been thrown nlf their guard
and gave ua uu opening that resulted
bo gloriously that this battle U recog
nized ns having been one of the most
effect I vo In the early breaking of the
power of the red man ou the plains.
Iu "Cnrr'a Cnmpulgiis" Gcucrnl Carr
"On Suuday. July 11, 18(10, 1 was
thinking of going to the river to water
my horses when 'llufTalo Hill' came
"f tliut him off M home nnd got tht
buck nnd said: 'I have seen tho village.
It I over n ridge, uway from tho river
valley.' We hud not seen tho trull for
fcouio time. They hud fullowcd an old
custom of trailing along tho ridge
where wo hud dismounted to croba It
ami going over tho high gtouud, so
thaLuiiy one following them would bo
visible from camp. Cody'n Idea wa
to get around, beyond and between
them nnd tho rltcr. Ho changed
horses ijulckly nnd went on, nnd I took
to the gallop for (several miles through
thu deep sand nnd got to the top of a
sand bill or mound. Home Pawnee
uway off to tho left on tho bluff beck
oucd mo, and t went. Tho Pawnees
pointed over tho rldgo and said. 'Hoss.
ihoas,' I saw what looked, Itko a band
of iionlos, but suld, 'No, buffalo.' Tiioy
said, 'No, no; bos, boss.' They took my
glasses nud looked nnd wild, 'Yos, boss.'
I looked, nnd, sure enough, thoy wero
ponlti grazing, and tho cawp no doubt
was below. I permitted tho Pawnees, as

wag Their custom, "to strip" niid take oh
their saddle nnd nil their uniforms,
but to keep on their drawer, so ns to
be recognized as friendly. I had sent
word to Colonel Ito.vnl, und he sent up
Major Walker' company und came ou
with the rest. I placed the l'awnec
on tho left and two compniiles of the
Fifth cavalry In the center nnd one of
Captain Trice's on the right I told
Major Eugcno Crittenden to take com
mand of the center nud I would take
the reserve and send up ro enforce
ments as required.
"When wo nil got started I told the
bugler behind me to sound 'the charge,'
nnd wo were nmong the enemy before
'. they had any Idea that we were with
in n thousand miles. Then I heard the
rattling of rllle on the right and left,
plainly distinguishing the basso sound
of 'Buffalo Illll'g' trusty rltle, old 'Ml
1 cretla Ilorgla.'
j " 'llufTalo mil' got pretty well around
,the village when he went In on Cap
tain Price' right. A he udvuixcd he
saw n chief on n horse charging about
nnd haranguing hi men. He nnd hi
party laid for hi in, and n he came
nearer 'llufTalo 1)111' shot him off his
horse nnd got tho nnliual. This was
the celebrated race horso Tall Hull,
which he (Cody) rode for a long time
nnd with It won ninny exciting races.
When he came Into eiimp Mrs. Tall
Hull said that It was her husband'
horse, leaving no doubt about the fact
that 'Buffalo mil hnd killed the chief.
"On this occasion the Indians had
two white captives Mrs. Alderdlcc of
Missouri, whom they killed during the
light, nnd Mrs. Wclgcl of Kansas, who
had been shot In tho back with a pis
tol bullet, which broke n rib, but was
deflected and passed nround nud lodg
ed below her left breast. Fifteen hun
dred dollars In gold, sliver nnd green
backs, which was gathered In the
camps, was given her, nnd alio went
back, remarried nnd 'provtsi up' ner
claim. Next morning wo dug a grave
on a hill above tho village nnd burled
Mrs. Alderdlcc, the surgeon reading
"I detailed n board of officers to
count the dead Indians, nnd notwith
standing that It Is their custom to car
ry away the wounded and to hide or
bury tho dead wo found ulity-elght
dead bodies on the Held."
As chief of scouts under General
Phil Sheridan. I and the men were rest
Ing nt Tort Mcl'herson after n haz-!
ardous expedition nnd n long and sue
ccssful chase. It was a quiet Juno ;
evening, nnd wo were enjoying refresh
ing breezes. A. detail had left the fort
to water tho government herd of
horses nnd mules In the nearby riatto
river when shots wero beard. Every
one was on hi feet In n moment, for
It was learned that n party of Sioux
Indians had dashed from tho cotton
wood trees, ahootlng. shouting and
waving blankets, nnd had stampeded
a herd of about 400 animal. Tho In
dians had killed two of tho herders nnd
wounded another. Some of tbe herd
ran for tho corral, where they were
accustomed to go for tho night, but the
Indians got away with about 200 and
started for the bluff south of tho fort.
All was excitement, but, as was my
custom, I bad my war horse. "Old
Buckskin Joe," near at hand nnd was
mounted In tlmo to make n recon
nolssanco nnd note tho direction lu
which the Indians had disappeared
with the government stock.
General William 11. Emory had his
bugler .sound tho "lioot nnd saddles."
nud by tho time I returned for In
struction flvo troop of cavalry were
busy saddling up, getting their arms,
ammunition and some supplies. One
company I, Fifth United Stntes cav
alrywere tho flrst troops saddled and
ready for the chase. Their officer, u
young lieutenant by tho name of Earl
I). Thomas, now Brigadier General
Thomas nnd In command of the de
partment of Colorado, was Just out
from West Point, full of ambition nnd
delighted to bo In command In the ab
sence of bis superior. General Em
ory nnd myself agreed on tho necessity
of quick action, und, to tho delight of
young Thomns, ho was ordered with
bis troop to follow me, w Idle tho other
troops ns soon ns ready would follow.
"Fours right! Trot! Gallop!" And
wo dashed off. We followed at n gal
lop until dark, but did not get a sight
of the Indians, nnd the trucks showed
that thoy wero whooping It up on the
run. A halt wns culled to give the
puffing horses n rest, and Thomas con
sulted me. Ills orders were to follow
and recapture tho animals. I told
Thomas I could follow Iho trail at.
night If necessary und nwaitcd his an
swer. "I will follow jou, Mr. Cody, ns
I was told to do so, and I will go wher
ever you propose." After n short rest.
"Mount and forward!" h.ih the order,
and the chase was continued. During
tho night the Indians repeatedly dou
bled on their trail. Wo did not reach
Medicine creek, where wo got water
for men and horses, until 11 o'clock tho
Tho trail showed that tho Indian
wero headed southwest, In tho direc
tion of Bed Willow Spring. Knowing
that thero wa no water between Sled
l:lno treok al the Bed Willow, I was
euro that the Indians would make a
Hop Iheie, ns ll wiih many miles from
there to the next water. We decided
it wa beat to Keep continuously on the
Job and a thu Indians must make
some atop to rest and eat wo could
"Verlap them. When the horses were I
rested, and ns we hnd nothing on hand I
to ent to delay u nud had had nnth-
Ing since dinner the day before, our j
best K)sslhlllly for a meal was to over ,
lake (he Indians, surprloo them, whip I
t In-tti nnd capture what dried meat
After leaving tho creek the Indians
began their old trhka In trjltig to hide
their trail by detlees well known to
me, but I paid no attention to this,
knowing what must be their next slop
ping plme, nnd 1 wns ns familiar with
that part of the country as they were.
Stinight ou we kept to the Springs, ex
cept that eteaslonnlly we went out of
tho direct line to keep In low places
between the wind hill mi n not to be
seen At II o'clock that night we halt
ed four miles from the Springs. Ad
vising Thomas to allow the men to un
snddlo and unbridle, letting each ee
oud man hold two horse by their hal
ters, nud so let them feed on the grass,
changing the men otory two hours so
they could get some sleep, I disguised
myself a mi Indian nnd started off to
locate tho hostlles and ha back In tlmo

to be silent until my return. Bcforo I
left, half of the tired men of tho little
band wero slumbering. One hour later
I bad seen the camp. Just ns I expected,
Iu fancied security, believing that we
could not bo within n day' march of
f'rnullni? Ii.lck till I could hoof It Oil
tll0 rlWi i founj ttio boys ua I bad left
them. Quietly they wero called to sad
dlo up. Instruction wero given, men
were detailed to pay particular atten
tion to recapturing and rounding up
tho herd, and other were Instructed ns
to tho attack on the camp. I estimat
ed tho Indians to number about thirty,
aud there were forty-two of us. Ten
wero to creep up to the bleeping In
dians on foot and bo ready to work In
oiMMi order. Twenty, liesldes the lieu
tenant nud myself, wero to charge ou
horseback. The rest wero to bring up
the remaining horses, attack tho herd
er and round up tho entire herd. Wo
nttneked at break of day, and tho
w holo schemo worked well. The tired
lot wero surprised when awakened to
meet their foes. Nine of them wero
sent to sleep forever. Many had kept
their war horses near them, nnd,
hastily mounting, they escnped with
povcrnl picked horses from our bamb.
Among them wns one of my fnvorltc
war horses. Powder Face, which one
of them who probably knew him had
appropriated for his own use.
A soon a the tight was over and I
saw that we had captured soma of
their herd a well a our own I saw
that Powder Face was not with them,
but I recognized him half a mlio nway,
hi rider heading for tho hills. This
made me lint, nnd, knowing that the
Indian would think others were fol
lowing me, I dashed after them. Old
Duckskln joe soon began to gain, and
I got near enough for a shot. My first
shot Lilted the horso that an Indian
was riding alongside of Powder Face,
aud his rider was soon up bchtnd In
the usual manner they try to savo n
wnrrlor, riding backward, shooting at
mo with his revolver. Powder Face
was ns swift a Joe. Being In tho
rough sand hills and having a doublo
.weight to carry, Joe In u fow minute
got me near enough for a good shot.
I' kept closing ou tuciu, as I did not
wnnt to hit my old friend I'owdcr
Tucc. When I thought It sure as they
were riding up over n mound I fired.
Thu Indians fell, the one bullet going
through both, and when Powder Fnco
heard my voice be ran toward me
w blunting, nnd, with two of tho boys
who had been ordered to follow dose
behind mo by the lieutenant, we' re
turned to the camp In high glee. Tbey
found a lot of dried buffalo and deer
uieat nnd some fresh antelope nnd deer,
with ncconipnnjlng pepper nnd salt
nud copious drafts of spring wntcr, so
n fuw minutes' rejoicing wns had. A
detail wa quickly made up to bury
tho dead, nud as wu had but three,
slightly wounded nnd Ave horses
Knocked out tho enthusiasm can hard
ly bo described.
