FROM TRUE TALES OF THE
COPTOiailT, 190B.BY WILLIAM P.
HAVE been many times asked If
tnc solitude of the plains was nut
burdensome ami oppressive to, a
man who was traveling alone
ionic of the vast expanses of the west,
where for hundreds of miles there was
no one to sec but himself, his horses,
a boundless level of prairie Brass, the
bluo sky above, with Its sun by day
and Its stars by night. At first the
qurstlun seemed sliauge, but I soon
understood how n man who has lived
all his life In dally touch with Ilroad
way might go melancholy mail In a
single day In n region where bo could
seo and hear absolutely nothing but
the wonderful panorama of nature and
Its voices. Thcro was n multltudo of
things uround him to arouse Interest,
H l.lnl. - .1.- ll ... ...
nun.,, iu mo iunuigiunii meant gaiety
or danger, life or death, but which
nould menu to such a man. Indeed, no
mora 'than so many blades of grass.
This silent excitement of the solitary
ride over the broad prairie, whero tho
city man would sco nothing but dull
monotony, was something moru excit
ingly Derce than anything I had seen
In a town, and I had seen Wall street
cr .zed. I bavo Watched street riots, I
Irivo witnessed royal pageants, and I
li ivc seen men lynched These things
illr the blood, but they all seem palo

Consequently tho scout ou duty was
compelled to Invent ruses of bis own
to assist hlra In emergency. And
when some extremely dangerous mis.
stun had to bo uudcrlat.cn tho scout
often puzzled tho commander by re
fusing aid In the shape of n snuad or
any chosen number of soldiers to ac
company him. Hut actually It was the
part of discretion to do so, ns going
alone or with one or two chosen com
rades whom you knew to be true blue
was n precaution that favored your
own safety, ns every scout naturally
picked the very best mounts and rode
ono mid had what Is called a "lead
horse," well trained, to follow nnd
stand by him In eu-ry emergency. He
had only himself to Iimi!: out for, nnd !
with n good lend horse In a race for j with provisions for tho trip, and start
life had a fresh remount. Therefore I ed out beforo davllcht for tho hunt.
I alvvnjs kept myself well provided
with well trained steeds, who became
wonderfully prntlch-nt In scenting dan
ger mid even game. The fact that
your horses were unshod was another
puzzlo to n trailing Indian, ns a shod
horse print gave him u clew to n wblto
man's presence or the proximity of the
military. One of my ruses wus to
take with me n bugler of thu Fifth
cavalry named Kershaw, who devel
oped n capacity for comradeship In
such adventures. Kershaw, after re
tlrlug from the army, beenmo chief of
police nt Chester, Pa, near Phllndcl'
phla, and died there several years ago.
Generally I preferred, like others, go
(rig nloue, ns then I had only myself
to look out for.
I took Kershaw with me often, ns 1
knew the country was Infested with
The IiuqIc coil threw them tnto confutlon.
"largo bands of Indians, when It was
too dangerous to travel In daytime nnd
your object could bo best accomplished
In the night. Ills value ni "a striker"
can bo best explained by tho following
Incident: On ono occasion wc slept dur
ing the day In n well wooded box can
yon, near n llttlu stream of water, with
plenty of grass for the horses to browse
on, ami at tho samo tlmo wc werp hid
den from view. Toward evening, when
wc thought It convenient to continue
our scout. Just ns wo wcro about to
emerge from our hldlug plnco n' large
band of Indlnns assembled down the
canyon to camp for the night. Mount
ed nH they were, It was useless for us
to attempt flight, so, moving farther
backward In tin- woods, wo remained
concealed until they had settled down.
There was no way to get out except a
dash through the Indian village. Wa
da led tiut stay till daylight, as they
I 4i J

might tlnd our trail, and they would"
havo us corralled, so we quietly walled
unlit thej; had settled down, when wa
mounted and sneaked toward the edge
of tho village, w hero there was an avc
nuo of escape. Their faithful dogs, of
course, alarmed the camp, so tho best
wo could do was to make n dash out,
wheel and lire as quick ns lie could,
and Kershaw with bis faithful bugle
Mow the charge. Hiding quickly
around the village, we made another
little firing at them and sounded the
buglo charge again. A repetition of
this at another point and n bugle
charge -threw them Into confusion.
stampeded their pome, prevented
their quick mounting, and while they
' went In one direction bold Kershaw and
'. ... ... .. ... .
iiijaeu were riuing in anoiuer. xntil
rally, of course, this gave the Indians
something to think of In the night
while wo got to the post nnd Informed
, Colonel Itoyal of the location and. with
Major Urown, Captain Hacho, Xlcutcn
ant Jack Hayes and a detachment of
cavalry, went on the .trail, which was
followed for two days, and the Indians
were severely punished, with but few
casualties on our side.
Getting fresh meat for Tort Sheridan,
. wo were greatly annoyed nt times on
'our buffalo hunt by being-Jumped by
tho Indians, who In those days were
generally out with the Bamo object,
Many n hot skirmish or many a run
for It was necessary. Huffnlo natural
ly were somo distance from tho. fort,
nnd I thought of n trick by which I
could give my red brothers a surprise.
In a run for It a few miles from tho
fort was a hogback that furnished n
good defensive position, and I bad
often noticed that It bad a long, deep,
busby rnvlno. It was In tho nature
almost of a natural fortification;, Si I
thought how I could got them to re
peat their many attacks on mo when I
ran to this particular point, from
which I could signal for help to tho
fort with hasty grass Arcs and "smoke
that talked." lluffalocs were at the
time plentiful, so I secured Kershaw
and about fifteen good marksmen.
Hiding the soldiers In this ravine, we
proceeded on our Journey and had not
tho wagons half flllod boforo my
striker,. XI III White, announced Indians
In tho distance, "and a big band, too,"
said mil. Away wo went for tho hog
back, and It wns llckcty split, with
tho Indians gaining on us every min
ute. Wo reached It, threw our wagons
Into position, packed our buffalo hams
out for breastworks, threw some
straw about and gathered up some
dead grass to uinko a signal. The In
dians, seeing It, know that relief
would come nnd they hadn't a mo
ment to lose If they wanted our scalps.
On they came, dashing nround. My
self nnd t eh insters and flro or six of
us banging awny nt them, they cir
cled around nnd drew off, as they
commonly did, nnd nt a dlstnnce of
about seventy-Arc jnrds from tho am
bush. As usual, they bunched togeth
er, listening to the wranglo of the
chief, linngl Unngl Ilangl And the
old Winchesters began to talk from
tho ravine, while Kershaw with bis
buglo blew the charge, the Indians
tumbling here, thcro nnd everywhere
out of their saddles, the rest scattering
with tho speed of Jack rabbits In nil
directions. Assembling on the dlstnut
hills, tbey realized that the Jig was
up, particularly when they saw the
cavalry coming In the distance. Some
how or other during the remainder of
tho season tbey never seemed to mo
lest the butcher wagon with tho same
appetite. And tbo fort always had
A country of such vast expanse, un
settled snvo for n few forts as places
of refuge and succor so comparatively
few In number ns to be, as It were, like
pebbles on the seashore,1 rendered the
campaign In winter, 'with the blizzard
conditions, not only hazardous nnd
dangerous, but even It successfully
combated attended by excruciating suf
fering. This the old army oRlccni nnd
soldiers of the early campaigns will
never forget, tho physical discomforts
and mental worrying with climatic
conditions far excelling those that do
featcd Napoleon In his winter cam
paign In tho region about Moscow,
I rcjato two or three examples. On
ono occasion I was out with somo of
the Fifth cavalry under the command
of Lieutenant llnchc, a descendant of
Ilenjamln Franklin and a member of a
well known Philadelphia family and,
by the way, n magnificent young olll
cer, who In various campaigns showed
n bravery nnd dash that ono would
not associate with his aristocratic bear
ing and extreme gentility. A blizzard
nrose. Forttinntcly wo wcro near shel
ter In the shapo of some bfuffg nnd
scattered wood. Wheu the blizzard
wns over It was necessary for us to
strike out on the path of duty. Tho
thermometer was away below zero and
the wind cutting and sharp.
On coming back from the lead tn con
sult with Lleiitcnnut Iluche I passed
by him to caution the sergeants to look
out fur their men from the cold nnd
see that they did not hecomo drowsy,
and on my return I found Indications
of immln ess and drowsiness even lu
tho case of the lieutenant. I aroused
him and appealed to him to putt him
self together, but ho wns Just tn the
humor to rescut It. lu consequence 1
had to take the law Into my own
hands nnd shake htm up In lively style,
first taking the precaution of slipping
his revolver nnd placing it out of his
reach. As .lie did not respond to my
efforts on the horse, I simply dismount
ed, pulled him 'from tho horse nnd
ued him lu what one would think n
rather rude nnd rough manner. In fact,
I had to make n punch bag anil foot
ball out of him, much to the astonish
ment of somo of the young troopers,
w ho came up hnd were going to nvengc
my apparent discourtesy to their oil)
cer, though some of the older-men ex
plained Its necessity. Eventually 1 go
the lieutenant on his feet, and while
our horses were being taken care of nn
old sergeant mid myself hustled him
along on n little foot race until no gut
his blood In circulation, nnd so, over
coming the danger, we eventually ar
rived safely at the fort.
On nnother occasion when out with
Genernl Ihigcno A. Cnrr, with whom I
consulted nnd who, by the way, was
ono of tho best posted nnd equipped
Indian fighters nnd frontiersmen on
the roster of the nrmy, wo both con
clndcd that on account of the peculiar
balmy condition of the weather a bliz
zard would be the next thing In order.
So wo resolved to strike enmp early,
as wo were then In n bleak country
III the Minding MU.-(nI.
and over fifty Allies from wood nnd
water. This wood unir-ujitcr were In a
lower country, where thcro wns only
on gap which would furnish descent,
Into tho valley, and that had to be
reached by careful attention to direc
tion. Starting early and getting tho point
of tho wind, no had not gone far bo
foro old Dorcas began bis revels. Geu
eral Carr, of course, gavo orders to
tho commanding officers of companies
In regard to preventing drowsiness of
tho men nud to quirt them In case of
any of them succumbing to the cold.
I shall long remember that trip, for It
wns necessary for mo to go by tho
wnd and not flinch from It, for lu the
blinding blizzard wc would all soon be
lost. Tho direction brought tho wind
against my left ear, and, us tho storm
soon becamo so blinding thnt oven a
black borso could not bo seen ten feet
from the picket ropes, lariat Hues were
scattered along to guldo tho men, who
kept so closo almost as to touch each
homo's tall. Hut I dared not change
my position for fear of losing tho di
rection, ko for eight hours I held my
left check nnd car .against the storm
and, of course, suffered greatly from
frostbite. I dared not dismount, as
did many of tho others, General Carr
himself walking nearly nil tho dis
tance, leading his horse. I bad stuffed
my car with a piece of saddle blanket,
but notwithstanding that tho eardrum
was frozen, and for a tlmo It gavo me
Intenso pain and suffering, nnd up to
the present day It has qulto nffcctrd
my bearing on that side.- Hut by this
pertinacity wo reached tho gap, and
when I had made tho point success
fully nnd tho descent down Into the
can) on becamo assured thcro wcro
never l.&OO men who let out such
yells nnd paeans of Joy,
On nnother occasion I hnd n very try
Ing experience when General Penroso's
command had been sent to rcconnoltcr
tho surrounding country by General
Sheridan nnd were known to have been
Komuwhere In n blizzard. Not hearing
from them for several days, wo knew
they wcro up against It, but as all
trails were covered nnd obliterated by
the drifting snow It wns a serious
problem to find them. General Carr, of
coursr, consulted w 1th mo In the mat.
ter nud ho relates tho Incident In do
tal! lu "Cnrr's Campaigns" of my suc
cess In finding tho men. In this In
stance, knowing In what direction they
hud gone, I had to travel fifteen miles
to find n ridge that they would cross
nud that tho Btorin would blow tbo
snow away from and lenvo bare Fol
lowing this rldgo for flvo miles or
more, I found the trail of their horses
and wagons whero they had crossed
and by tho hoof tracks located tho di
rection In which they had gone. I suc
ceeded In reaching them, snowed In
nnd In n tcrrlblo condition, for every
thing had been eaten up to such nn
extent thnt tho horses and mules had
eaten tho manes and tails off each
other. Returning the next day, relief
was sent, nud the commands became
