then. The work was the sort usually
Intrusted to a grown man, nnd It
meant not only perpetual hustling, but
n lot of danger ns well, for the plains
In those days were anything but free
from Indians. This latter thought
frightened even my brae mother.
Itoyllke, I wa.s delighted nt the Idea.
Mr. Majors Mild be would take ino

solved to do miracles ns an extra.
The "train" was inado up of twenty
five loaded wagons, each carrying
7,000 pounds, each drawn by six yoko
of oxen nnd guided by u "bullwbuck

whip. Then thero was n bunch of

wagons, nnd we were driving n largo
herd of beef cattle to Tort Kearny for
the use of Colonel Albert Sydney John
ston mid his command, who were nn
their way to Bait 1-nko to fight thu
Mormons. I was only one of scleral
extras. Though we always set guard,
no Indians bad appeared.

for dinner nnd were loafing about on

Two bands of Indians wero gallop

and ran off our rattle, while the other
"rushed" us. Our men gavo them n

The "braves" only cnutercd out of

was no time for rest or complaining.
Just the snmc, by nightfall my short
