Keogh's Warhorse the Sole Sur vivor of the Terrible Custer Massacre. The Equine Hero of Many Bloody Fights With Hostile Red skins. els Baptism of Blood in 1868--Faling Bapidly at tie Ripe Old Age of Tweaty-Elght. Comanche, the celebrated old warhorse of the Seventh United States cavalry, still lives at a ripe old age. He is stationed at Fort Riley, Kan., with Troop I, to which he has been attached since his advent into the service. The Seventh was the lamented Gen. Cnster's regiment, which possesses a most enviable record. The history of Com anche is a remarkable one, worthy a place beside the renowned animals recorded in the world's chronicles of notable ware. Comanche is one of the original mounts of the Seventh cavalry when the regiment was organized in 1866 at Fort Riley under the act of congress authorizing an increase in that arm of the service. Upon the disposi tion of the several troops composing the regiment to the various military posts in the then district of Upper Kansas by Gen. Alfred Sully, its commander, Troop I, whose captain was the gallant Col. Keogh, was assigned to Fort Wallace, in remote west ern Kansas. on the great central plains. Comanche joined the troop in the fall of 1866, and has been in nearly every battle and skirmish since that time in which the regiment has participated, says a Topeka, Kan., oorrespondednt of the Rocky Moun tain News. His fearless owner, Colonel Keogh, rodehim into that awful Sght of the "Little Big Horn," where Custer and his brave followers went down to death in their last charge, with colors flying and trumpeters sounding the "forward." That was the only time the intrepid regiment drooped its guidons, and where, with flash ing sabres, overwhelmed by brute force, it rushed on to annihilation. Comanche has been wounded many times. In the ter ribly unequal battle of the "Little Big Hern," or "Rosebud," as it is generally called, he was the only animal to escape the awful fate which befell all else animate on our side in the hopeless struggle with death. His first serious enoounter with the savages of the intraeontinent region was in the autumn of 1868. It was immediately preceding the organization of the cele brated "winter campaign" against the allied tribes of the whole central plains, in which General Sheridan commanded in person. His lieutenants were all famous Indien fighters-General Sully, the hero of the Sioux war in 1864, General Custer, General Carr of the Fifth cavalry, and many others of less rank, but of equal rep utation. General Sully. who was second to General Sheridan, commansded the dis trict of the Upper Arkansas. with head quarters at Fort Hiarker (now the town of Kanopolis), on the Smoky Hill. 'The Ind ians had been making frequent raids aloug the Kansas and Nebraska border during the summer, murdering the settlers and committing the most outrageous and name less depredations, so General Sully deter mined upon a hurried expedition against them. Accordingly, with eight companies of the Seventh cavalry and five companies of infantry ho concentrated his force at Fort Dodge, on the Arkansas, intending to punish the Kiowas, Arapahoes and Chey Men's heavy fleece lined under. wear, natural gray, worth $a,oo, this week $i.25.

Early in September, 1968, he left Fort Dodge with his command, and, after cross ing the river twelve miles below the fort, marched in a general southeasterly direc tion toward the Canadian. On the evening of the fifth day he arrived at the "sand hills" of the Beaver and Wolf rivers, where, the following morning, while the command was marching through that relatively barren region, he was attacked by about 800 of the allied savages under the leader ship of the dreaded "Sa-tan-ta," the notori one war chief of the Kiowas. A running fight was kept up with the determined warriors during the entire day, in which two of the troopers were killed and one wounded. The Indians, meanwhile, through the media of their "runners" (mes sengers), communicated with their camps and gradually augmented their number, new accessions constantly arriving from every direction, until they soon mustered over 2,000 well armed, fearless warriors. This outmarshalled by superior numbers, the general was compelled to retreat toward the Arkansas. The march was of necessity slow. For four days and nights the Indians hovered around the flanks of the column, annoying the troops in a terrible manner. They were pestiferous to such a degree that the command could act only on the defensive, and by the time it arrived at the crossing of the north fork of the Canadian there were not 1.000 rounds of ammunition left. At this point a stand was made. The incessant charges of the now infuriated savages rendered it necessary to employ the small amount of ammunition held in reserve, and then the troops shortly found themselves almost at the mercy of their bold enemies. In this ex citing encounter the savages would im pudently ride up to within a few yards of the squadrons of troopers, discharge the bullets from their revolvers and then in their rage throw the empty weapons at the skirmishers or at the flankers of the sup ply train. The latter, nearly all of whom were absolutely out of ammunition, having exhausted it in actual self-defense, were passive spectators of the extraordinary scene. Manv of the Indians were killed on their ponies, however, by those soldiers who were fortunate enough to have had a few cartriges left. None of the bodies of the savages were captured, as they had taken the usual precaution to tie them selves to their animals, and, as soon as dead. were dragged by their faithful beasts into their own lines. In this engagement Comanche received his initial wound. Gen. Sully had sent Col. Keogh, who was acting as his aide that day, down to the skirmish line to stop what he considered as reckless firing riand a simple waste of ammunition,for he believed the Indians were not inflicting any serious damage, or were, in fact, not firing at all. The moment the gallant colonel arrived on the ground, however, he discovered that the savages were keeping up a vigorous fusilade. The first intimation he had of this was when Comanche received a ball from a rifle in the hands of an Indian who had the temerity to charge upon him pretty closely, discharge his piece and ride furi onsly back again. Comanche behaved admirably; he was but four years old then and soon recovered from the effects of his wound. Ten years afterward, to pass over many insignificant skirmishes in which he was present not worthy the name of battle, in the memorable month of June. 170, Colo nel Keogh rode him into tile valley of the Rosebud. After that phveically beautiful little rift in the mountains was hushed in death, and General Terry's column came to the relief of those of the regiment who were not in the fight, but who were loft idly rest ing on their arms reiles distant from the scene of slaughter, because "someone had blundered," Comlncho was discovered wandering aimlessly around the abandoned Indian camp, saddelless, riderless, wounded and lame. tHe was bleeding from seven severe Lullet holes, either of which would have killed an ordinary horse. The noble animal was immediately recognized by Capt. Henry J. Nowlan, who at the time was arting quartermaster of Gen. Terry's com and. He a it once sent Comanche to ]ort Abraham Lincoln on the upper Mis souri, with orders to specially care for him, Capt. Nowlan, a grand old gentleman, is now commander of Troop I, Col.

Comanche is a "claybank" in color; in all possibility has a strain of Spanish blood in his veins, which accounts for his won derful endurance and persistency. Froum the members of the troop to which he has never been attached he is the recipient of marked attention; has all that he can pos sibly eat of the most carefully selected rations, and when he dies will no doubt be buried with military honors appropriate to his distinguished career in a long and checkered life. Fourteen years have passed since Co manche has been subjected to the burden even of a saddle. Previous to 1877, the daughter of the colonel of the regiment was in the habit, every pleasant afternoon, of sending her compliments to Captain Now lan, requesting the use of Comanche to take a lope on the beautiful prairies sur rounding the fort. One day the daughter of the major of the regiment, sent her com pliments asking for the veteran horse, to which the accomplished and polite captain readily assented. Shortly afterward, how ever, and when the favorite animal had been sent by a groom to the quarters of the major's daughter, the colonel's daughter made her customary demand for her pet Comanche. When she learned that he had already been ordered for the use of another lady of the garrison her disappointment was apparent to every one. To this was added extreme bitterness, as in a few mo ments the rivals for the honor of riding Comanche met on the parade ground to join the same "outing party." That was the last time Comanche ever appeared with a saddle on. The next day the colonel of the regiment issued a "general order." in which he recited the horse's long service, his wounds and age, closing with a provi ion forbidding any one from ever mount ing him again. Comanche is now 28 vears old, is fail ing rapidly and will not last much longer. atemareo miaamOers.
