to ro with General Custer nnd that bo
wanted me to hnve the best mount
there was nt the Mwt. At Hint time
the horses nt the fort were pretty well
run down from many ihnvc.s after In
dians, but I was riding nnd had nt
tho time as goul a lung distance horse
ns 1 luno eer known, and lie was n
mule. The general himself was riding
a Kentucky thoroughbred.
At daylight 1 rode up to tho com
manding olllcer's quarters, nnd Cap
tain Ovcnshlnc Introduced mo for tho
first time to (leneral Custer. The gen
eral, seeing that I was mounted on n
mule, said to Ciiptnln Ovcnshlnc:
"Cnptnln. I bneu't got time to dllly
dally along the road with a mule. I
see that my guide here Is mounted ou
a mule. 1 wnut blm to have a horse,
nnd n good one."
1 snld, "General, this Is tho best
horso nt tho fort, nnd I nssuro you
that ho won't bo much behind you
when ypn reach Fort Ijirued." "
The captain explained to the general
tint tho horses were In pretty bad
condltl" nt the fort nnd that bo had
heard me brag so much nbout that
mule that he felt qulto.suro that tho
beast was all right.
The general seemed n little displeas
ed and said. "Well. If that Is the best
you havo I will have to put up with
Wo mounted nnd started out on tho
road. For the first fifteen miles to
Smoky Hll river there was a good
wagon road, nnd as we rode along the
Rcneral asked pie numrrous questions
In recti rd to tho rnimtrr nml tlin In.
fdlans, and thus we talked along mile
after mile. Hut the general was -going
nt n pretty rapid gait, nnd my mule
was not very sjiecdy on the start, but
I knew bo would finish nil right So
when tho gcnernl was not looking I
would put the spurs to the mulo n lit
tlo to wake blm up. However, I kept
alongside of the general until I got to
Smoky Hill river. 1 noticed that tho
old mule was not panting much, hut
the horses were.
I told the general (hat this would be
the last water for forty-tlvo miles un
til we Rot near Lamed: that It would
be best to water tho horses there, nnd
If the men required nny water they
had better (III up their canteens, which
From this point we struck Into the
i-and hills, leaving all rends. It was
pretty sandy nml pretty heavy travel
ing for horse or mule, but I made up
my mind that I would show the gen
eral from therq on that I lind spoken
the truth about tho mule. So when the
general was not looking nt me I would
put tho spurs to him, nnd as ho would
lungo ahead I would Bay:
"Whoa, there! Talo It easy, old fel
low. Don't get to frcltln'."
We went on like that for n mllo or
so. Tho mulo would get ahead pt tho
horses, and whenever tho general
wasn't looking I would spur him, nml
as the mule would forgo nhend I
would pat blm to culm htm down.
Finally the general remarked, "That
HA)'- 'vta"- V V'
I told him that that was the Pawnee
Pork creek tn.d that nil we bad to do
, was to follow the creek down and" we
would como to the fort.
"Now, Reneral." I said, "If you have
any nrpent dispatches that you wnnt
itakcn to your cotnmnndlnR ofllccr, If
'you will slvo them to mo I will tako
them on nnd liavo them delivered to
him. lou cannot help but find your

nbout what I said In regard to that
mule. Well," turning to ono of tho
officers, "you brlnR the escort In. Fol
low tho direction wo aro RoInR, and I
will ro on with Cody."
And wo started. I RlvlnR him as live
ly a rldo as his horso could stand until
wo reached the fort That nlRbt tho
Rcneral's horso died. Tho next morn
ing at guard mount I rodo up to the
headquarters of Fort Lnrned, which
was commanded by Captain Dalngcr
field Parker, with whom tho Rcncral
was stopping, and reported to him. I
said that It ho had no further uso for
me I would return to my own fort nnd
that If be had any dispatches ho wnntcd
taken back to Port Havs I would tako
Ithem, ns I expected to pet thcro lu
eigne nours on mo same mine.
He laughed nnd said, "Well, I will

Among tho many nrmy officers under
whom I have terwd one of my earliest
experiences was with Major General
Pugeno A. Cnrr, retired. General Cnrr
was n graduate, of West Point when !
cabins were more plentiful than frame
houses In upper New York state,
whence he came. Crnduntlng In ISoO.
ho went to tbo frontier and graduated
lu that old school that made him ono
of tho best of Indian fighters.
In 1603 I first met blm when 1 wns
a scout for Colonel Royal's command,
whom be succeeded. It has been tbo
prldo ot my career that, bo being nn
ofllccr of .such wido experience nnd
nullity, I' secured bis esteem nnd
friendship, nnd In his writings be has
been very generous In alluding to my
services. I bad the honor of serving
with blm In ninny trying campaigns,
notably In Hint which culminated In
bis success over Tall Hull, who had
long been the terror ot the plains with
what Is known ns tho "dog soldiers,1
who wcro renegades recruited from a
dozen disappointed tribes and were
composed of tbo most IcIous, fanatical
Indians who wcro opposed to the
white man's Intrusion lu tbo west The
depredations wcro of n terrifying na
ture, nnd Carr wns delegated to pun
ish them at nil hazards. Their contin
uous pursuit for many mouths was n
very trying ono, as they employed tho
Indians' methods of nnnoynnco In at
tack by safejy scattering when hard
pressed. Knowing that only strategic
cunning could eventually effect sub
tugatlon or dispersal, General Carr
proved by Lis persistent energy nnd
strategy that ho was equal to the sit
uation. It wns during the continuous
pursuit of these warriors that I met
one of my closest calls In an Incidental
tight which occurred at n point called
Elephant rock. It wns In tbo spring
of 1SC3 that we reached Elephnut
rockv which Is n point oh n rock on
the south side of Ilenvcr vnllcy, where
I found nu Indian trail going down
tbo Heaver, nnd, following tt, the com
innuil went luto camp. Tbo general or
dered I.lcuruniif Ward to follow It I
being already on jhe scene. I was
keeping the Indians In Bight while cov
ering my presence from them, when
somewhat to the left, almost parallel
with them, I beard firing, nnd I after
ward uscortantcd that Lieutenant
Ward was lu n'sMrralSb bo premature
that nt ono tlmo it threatened to cut
General Cnrr left tbo command un
der Mnjor nrown to follow with tho
wagons, nml tbo Indians, skirmishing
with great daring, put up n game fight.
General Curr followed thorn until
nearly dark and returned to meet nml
protect tho wagons. Forming his men
In n hollow square, bo mnda nn orderly
retreat, tho Iudlaus showing great per
tinacity lu their skirmish tactics, so
much so that tho general got n bullet
through tho scabbard of his saber.
Meeting tbo wagons and getting Into n
good position, ho went Into camp, but
tho Indluus stuyed around all nigh',
emitting the rrh-s of owls and coyote;
s usual. Next day the Indians were
followed, nnd skirmishing wns kept up
Incessantly. Lieutenant Hchcnnfsky on
that occasion enmo near being ntn
bushed nnd bad n few men killed.
This contlniiotiM skirmishing wns kept
up for three, days, with myself almost
continuously In the saddle, nnd while
we wero In front the Rcnernl Bounded
tho officers' call for consultation. I
will permit General Carr to tell the
slorj of nn nffalr In which be punished
the itidlans revcrcly, while' the story
relates also to my connection with the
"I bad heard some firing In front,
where tho ndvnnco Riinrd had gone out
o'f sight My orders wero for the ad
vance guard to regulate on the mail'
column nnd nlwnys keep In sight of It.
but ns Major Ilibcock nnd Llctitcnnnl
W. P. Hall, now General Hall, were bo
ambitious and nnxlnus for t fight I
thought I would give them n chance,
and so I let them nlone. After hasty
consultation regarding lack of supplier
I rent n bugler o recall the ndvnncc
guard. He came back saying In could
not reach them, ns thev were Bur
rounded by Indians. The Indians had
got, Into four ravines -which headed
nur the trail, two on each side. The
hbalf doren bad 'led tho advance nn
with Insulting gestures nnd defiant
words (some could spenk nnd Bwear In
English), nnd when they enme between
the ravines the whole poured out
around them. Hancock dismounted lili
men nnd formed them lu a circle nnd
stood the Indians off. I sent Lieuten
ant Hrady with tbo next company to
open communications, and the Indians,
supposing th whole command was
coming, went ou ns before.
"Itcachlng the scene, we could see
the Indians scattering in retreat A
Qruto with apparently n red cap rose
slowly on the hill. For nn Instant It
puzzled me. ns It woro n buckskin and
had long hair. Hut on seeing the
horse I recognized that It was Cody's
Powder Pace nnd saw that It was
'Buffalo UIIP without Ids bro:-d brim
med sombrero. On closer Inspection
I saw that his head was swathed' In n
bloody handkerchief, which served not
only ns n temporary bandngc, but ns n
chapeau, bis hat having been shot off.
tho bullet plowing his scalp badly for
about five Inches, It bad ridged nlong
the bono nnd wns bleeding profusely,
n very closo call, but n lucky escape.
However, It would not do to turn back
Immediately after such impudence, so
I took to tho gallop and ran them for
twelve miles to nnd across the Repub
lican nnd up tbo bluffs on the south
side, where they nctcd In their usual
aggravating stylo by scattering In
every direction nfter dropping n good
deal of plunder. We could see them
nn tho distant bill, but could not catch
(hem under tho circumstances or with
out means of sonic counter strategic
cunning, so wo went hack and camp
ed north of the Itepubllcin. The ml-
nnco guard bnd been relieved nnd
the Indians severely punished, with n
loss on our Hide of but four or fire
killed nnd n few wounded, this with
Hancock's horse wounded and Cody's
narrow cscnpo ns tho resulting, casual
ties. Tho object of tho campaign wns
nearly accomplished, but our greatest
need wns supplies, which tbo hot trail
had sidetracked In the excitement of
tho necessary pursuit of tho defiant
foo. As tho country was Infcstct with
Indians nnd it wns fifty miles to the
nearest Bupply point, Fort Kearny, on
consultation with Cody ho decided that
It would bo best to iindrrtnko tho Job
blmsclf, n polqt characteristic ot blm,
as he never shirked duty or faltered
In emergencies. I gave him tho best
lilt head u-oi iwathcd In a bloody hcind
hcrchltf. horso In tho outfit, nnd when twilight
arrived bo decided, utter patching up
his bead n little, to bring relief nnd
moot us at n point 'northwest ou the
Pintle river, nbout a day-'s march on
ward.' Thoso wcro nbout tho most
definite directions nny scout got In tho
trackless w-nstcs ot thoso days, nnd It
(showed tbo peculiar sixth senso or
acumen possessed by experienced offi
cers and why practical scouts, llko
Cody, In the wido terrestrial seas of
tho great plains rarely over missed
connections. Cody therefore renched
us safely, making n successful rldo of
fifty miles during tho night and ar
riving nt Port Kearny at daylight."
