CoL Nathan Boone, a son of Daniel
Boone, also Iired there, his cabin having
.stood in the bottoms about a mile from
Mineola on the west side of the creek.
It is not far from the former site pf
this cabin that the. old mounds rise
ajove the surrounding landscape, monu
ments to a prehistoric race, that used to
live in the hills near Mineola. There
are four of the moands. The largest one
covers about a quarter of an acre and
stands about fifteen feet above the level
of the surrounding ground. It has been
disputed whether they are the work of
Indians or of the .Mound Builders, but
the latter explanation seems to be the

ine springs are located on a
creek which empties Into tnTLontre at
Mineola. Back of the springs is the
pot where Harris Massey, one of the
iirst settlers -in Mineola, was killed by
Indians in the days when Mineola was
one of the frontier towns of the West.
Massey was working in a field and, be
coming tired of carrying his rifle with
him, hei set it against a tree and went
on with his work. Meanwhile, a band
of warriors had crept down the creek
and cnt him off from his rifle. They
fired upon him and killed him and then
rushed up and scalped him. His family
witnessed the deed from the door of the
cabin hut were powerless to help him.
The Indians retreated without molesting
any other members of the family.
It was also during this period that the
Prairie Fork fight with the Indians took
place and resulted in the death of CapL
James Callaway. About four miles south
of Mineola is a solitary grave, which
keeps a lone vigil on the top of the bluff
overlooking the Lotnre. Below in the
bottoms is another grave marked only by1
a pile of stone, which used to be a wall,
and a clump of trees. The valley is rich

a telegram toAsquith offering the serv

major. "This offer was refused. I then
spoke to the men of my command' and
they agreed that they would enlist in a
body in the regular British army, if al

down. I then went to John Redmond
and told him frankly that unless the vol

An AJ-SIaci Club has been organized
anting the persons employed in the
registrar's office of the University. A
list of disapproved slang was made out,
including the special weaknesses of each
of the members. It includes "Yeah,"
"Gosh," "Good Night;", "For the love
o' Pete," etc For each offense the per
son committing it is assessed a penny.
When enough fines have accumulated the
money will be used for a treat for the
club. The amount taken in the first day
was 10 cents.
