A RACE FOR
FROM TRUE TAIL'S OF THE PLAINS"
eoPYntoHT.ioa by riLUAnr oody
IN the fall of 18G3 General Sherman
and the Indian commissioners
who were to malA n treaty with
tho Arnpahoes ami Comanchcs In
lobtkwrstcro Kansas tamo to Fort
Za'rrah, on the Arkansas river. From
there they were to go to what was
known ns Council Spriugs. n distance
of slity-flvc- miles from Znrrah. Be
tween Zarrnh nnd the Springs Is n tint,
level wujitrj. but no jvntcr Is to be
had. nm.equontly there was no water
carried snvu Vor drinking purposes,
which was cnrrled In canteens In tho
ambulances, for the general' orders
were that bo would leave Fort Zarrnh
at 2 a. in. so as to get a good start
over this dry country.
Our chief of scouts nnd gutdo at that
time wns Dick Curtis. Tho outfit was
composed of three ambulances, with
saddle horses for the general and In
dian commissioners, nnd when the gen
eral nnd commissioners were riding In
the ambulances their saddle hoiscs
were led by orderlies. The general
hnd three or four staff officers, n com
pany of cavalry ns an escort nnd about
thirty scouts and messengers well
mounted. These scouts' nnd messen
gers' duty wis that w henevcr the gen
eral 'wished to send any quick dis
patches back to Fort Riley, at that
time tho nearest telegraph point, these
men were to carry them. I was nt the
time a young scout employed for this,
It was about 2 o'clock In the after
noon, after leaving the fort, that n
young officer, one of the general's aids,
was riding nlong talking to tnc and
asking mo nbout when I thought wc
were going to itct to Council Springs,
wlrere tho Indians were. I told hlin
that If wc kept on In tho direction wo
were going we would never get there.
Ho nsked, "Why notr I replied that
wo were not going In the direction of
tho Springs: that wfc wcro bearing loo
far to the west-
Ho said: "Why don't jou tell the
general this? He ts np there In tho
ntnbulance." I told him (the officer)
tlrit I was not priding General Sher
man; that Mr Curtis win the guide ,
and that I hrd no right to Interfere
with him whatever, nor did I Intend I
tovdo so. This jnung officer (I have
forgotten nis nime) tumbled to the
sltuatlou, and, galloping abcid, he rodo
alongside the nmbulancc and told tho
general what I bjid said and explained
to him my reasons for not mentioning
tho situation. Tho general appreciated
It at once niid called a hnlt. climbed
out of tho ambulance, sent for Mr.
Curtis to Cotnu back to htm. nnd also
for the scouts to come up. of whom I
was one. He laid out n large map on
the ground, nnd when wo nil got near
him he snld to Mr. Curtis:
"I wish you would show me ou this
map Just where wo nro."
Mr. Curtis told him. which was per
fectly true, that tho maps were all so
Incorrect that It was Impossible to go
The general romnrKed: "Weil, then,
Mr. Curtis, how far nro wc from tho
Springs? From the distance wc havo
trnclcd since leaIng Zarrnh nt 2
o'clock this m6mlng wo should bo
vci-y near thorn."
Mr. Curtis replied: "General, this Is
a very level country, ns jou can see.
Tbcro are no landmarks, and there nro
so many thousands of buffaloes all
over the prairie that It Is pretty bard
to tell Just whero wo are ami bow far
wo aro from tho Springs. Further
more, I have not been over to the
Springs for several jrcars, nnd when
I fast went tbcro I v. as not acting ns
guide. Consequently I feci that I nm
rather lost myself.'
Tho geucrnl. looking nt the other
scouts, snld. "Do any of you know
where the Springs aro?" Tho young
officer had pointed me out to tho gen
eral, and bo was looking straight at
me when bo nsked the question.
I said, "Vcs, gcucml: 1 know where
the Springs nre."
"How far are wo from them?" asked
the general. I told him about eight
een miles. ,
He asked In what direction, and I
answered, saying they were duo south
from us now nnd wo wcro headed
deml west. Dick Curtis spoko up nnd
said, "Hilly, when were jou over out
to tho Sprints?"
I told him I hnd been there on two
or three different occasions with Cbnr
lie Until, the Indian trader, nnd hnd
killed mauy buffaloes nil oier this conn-
try. The general called for his horso,
mounted It and said: "Young man, you
come and show mo the Springs. 1 will
ride with you. Mr. Curtis, come along.
No disrespect to you, sir. 1 appre
ciate bow hard It Is for one to llnd his
way In n country where tbcro ore no
landmarks, leel as the sea nnd cov
ered with buffaloes."
I headed due south, tho general rid
ing by my side, and during this; ride
Iho general nsked me many questions
how I came to know this country so
well, etc. I told him that my father
had been killed In the border ruffian
war of bleeding Kansas and that slnco
bis death I had grdwn up on tho plains
with the freighters, trappers, buffalo
hunters, Indian traders and others
and I was quite familiar with nit the
country lying between the Missouri
river nnd tho Itocky mountains. We

rodo on In this way until, npproichlng
a little rise In the prnlrtc, 1 said, "Gen
eral, when Jou get to that small ridge
Up there you will look down Into a
low depression of tho prairie nbd see
Council Springs aud the ludlaus." The
Springs rlso In this vast plain, nnd
they run for only about four or five
miles, wheu It becomes a smill
stream of water sinking Into tho sand
When wo gained this ridge, there bo
foro tho general's cjes were hundreds
and hundreds of horses nnd n largo

I said: "There you are. general.

The general and the pcaco commis
sioners counseled, hero for thrco days,
and In tho ctgnlng of tho third day nn
orderly en mo to luc and told tsc tho
general wished mo to report to him at
bis tent Tho general kindly Invited
me In nnd said: "Hilly, I want to go
from bore now to Fort Kearny, on the
Platte river, In Nebraska, How far Is
It?" I told him the wny that ho would
havo to go to bn e good camping places
and that it would be about 300 miles.
Ho asked. "Can you guldo mo there?"
1 told him I could, nnd ho said: "All
right We will start tomorrow for
Fort Zarrnh nnd from tbcro to Fort
Itlley, and from Fort Illley I want you
to gutdo roe to Fort Kearny." Which I
did, and on arriving nt Fort Kearny
the general complimented mo nnd said:
"From bore I am going to Fort Lenv-
enwortb. I wish you to, guldo me
there." I told blm thnt would be easy,
for tbcro was a big wagon road from
Kearny to Fort Lcaicnnorth. Ho said
"That is all right It will mako It
enslcr for jou. You havo guided mc
safely for over 300 miles where thero
wcro no wagon roads, and I am not
afraid fb trust mybclf with you on a
big wagon road." On nrrlvlng nt Leav
enworth I parted with the general,
nnd be enld Geucrnl Bhcrldah was com
ing out to tako command In a short
time nnd thnt he wontd tell him of me.
This wns tho last time I saw the dear
old general for several years, no wns
ono of the loveliest men I have ever
bad tho pleasure of know Ing.
Ono day In tho spring of 1S0S I
mounted Brlgham nnd started for
Smoky Hill rher. After galloping
about twenty miles I reached the top
of n small hill overlooking tho valley
Of that beautiful stream. As I was
gazing down on tho landscapo I sud
denly saw a band of about thirty In
dians nearly half a mile distant I
knew by tho wny they Jumped on tholr
horses that they hnd seen mo as soon
as I camo In sight
Tho only chance I Ind for my Hfo
was to make n run for It and 1 Imme
diately wheeled nnd started back to
ward tho railroad. Ilrlgham stcmed
to understand what was up, and ho
struck out ns If h6 comprehended that
It was to bo n run for life. He crossed
a rmlno'ln a few- Jumps, and on
reaching a bridge beyond I drew rein,
looked back nnd rniw the Indians com
ing for mo at full spcnl and evidently
well mounted. I would hare bad little
or no fenr of being overtaken If Brig
ham bad been fresh. Hut as ho was
not I felt unccrtnln ns to bow bo
would stand n long chnso.
My pursuers seemed to be gaining
on mo n little, and I let Ilrlglmm
shoot ahead again. When wo had run
about three miles farther somo eight
or nlno of the Indians were not over
200 yards behind, and (ho or six of
these seemed to be Hhortcnlng tho gnp
nt ovcry Jump, nrlghnm now exerted
hlms'olf more than over, and for the
next threo or four miles h6 got right
down to business nml did somo of tho
,,rcttte8t running 1 ever saw. But tho
Inillnzis wero about as well mounted
v y Z-s3--J
as I was, and ono of their horses In
pnrtlculur, a spotted animal, was
raining on me nil the llmc Nearly
rll Iho other horcs wcro strung out
behind for n dlstnnco of two miles,
but still dinning nftcr me.
Tho Indian who wasldlng the spot
ted horse was armed with n rtlle and
would iMcnsloimlly vend a bullet whis
tling nlong. sometimes striking the
ground nlieiid of me. 1 snw thnt this
follow must be checked or a stray bul
let from his gun might hit tnc or my
horc, so. suddenly mopping IJrlglnm
nml quickly wheeling hliii nrouml, I
raised old "I.ucn-tli" to my shoulder,
took deliberate nlm nt the Indian nnd
his horse, hoping to hit ono or tho
other, nnd fired. He was not over
eighty jnrds from mc nt this time,
and nt tho crack of my rlilc dowu
went his horso. Not waiting to seo
If he rcCovirfd. I turned ltrlgham.
nnd In n moment we were ngnlu fair
Ij fijltig toward our destination. We
hnd urgent business about that tlma
nnd were In n hurry to get there.
The other Indians Ind gnlned on us
while I wns engnged In shooting nt
tlulr lender, nnd they sent several
shots whlzrlng past me, but fortunate
ly none of them hit tho Intended mnrk.
To return their compliment I occasion
ally wheeled myself In the saddle nnd
fired back nt them, nnd ono of my
shots broke the le of one of their
horses, which left Its rider hors(e) do
comb it. ns the French would sny.
Only seven or eight Indians now re
mained In dingcrous proximity to me,
nnd ns their horses were beginning to
Ing somewhat I checked my faithful
old steed a little to allow blm an op
portunity to draw nn extra breath ur
two. I bad determined, If It should
come to the worst, to drop Into n but
fnlo wallow, wbcro I could stand tho
Indlnns off for nwhlle, but I wns not
compelled to do this, as llrlghnm car
ried me through most nobly.
The chase wns kept up until we
came within three miles of the end
of tho railroad track, wbcro two com
panies of soldiers wore stationed for
tho purpose of protecting tho work
men from tho Indians. One of tho
outposts saw the Indians chasing me
across the prairie nnd gave tbe alarm.
In a few minutes I saw, greatly to my
delight, men coming on foot, and cav
nlrjmen, too, galloping to our rescue
as soon ns they could mount their
horses. When tbo Indians saw this
they turned nnd ran In tiro direction
from w htch they had come, Iuriv cry
few minutes I was met by somo of
tiro lnfnntrjmcn nnd trackmen, and,
Jumping to the ground nnd pulling tho
blanket nnd saddle off llrlghnm, I told
them what ho bad dono for mc. They
at once took htm In charge, led him
around and rubbed him down so vigor
ously that I thought they would rub
blm to death.
Captain Nolan of the Tenth cavalry
now camo up with forty of his men,
nnd upon learning what had happened
ho determined to pursuo tho Indians.
He kindly offered mo ono of his cnv
airy horses, and after putting my own
saddle and bridle on the animal we
started out after tbo flying Indians,
who only a few minutes before bad
been making it so uncomfortably live
ly for me. Our horses were nil fresh
and of excellent stock, nnd we soon
began shortening tho dlstnnco between
ourselves and tho redskins. Before
they bad gone flvo miles we overtook
and killed eight of their number. Tbo
'Vie the crack of my rifle doiin went hit
others succeeded in making their es
cape. On coming up to tho place
where I had killed tho tlrat.horso the
spotted one on my "home run" I
fuund that my bullet had struck him
lu the forehead and killed blm lustant
ly. Ho was a nohlo nnlmul and ought
to have been engaged In better busi
ness. When wo got back to camp I found
old llrlghnm grazing quietly and con
tentedly on tho grain. Ho looked up
at mc ns If to ask it we hnd got nwny
with any of those fellows who hnd
chased us. I believe he road tbo an
