FOURTEEN YEABS AGO.
H. W. Jones, in the Las Animas Leader, gives eotae interesting reminiscence of the border, Jborteta yean ago, from which we quote: The lit of Mar, 1865, had come, and af ter a rroggle lor life for the fire yean ot the cruel conflict that was now ended, the writer of this, with hia wife and family o little children, took np thtir march aeroaa the deaert toward the setting eon. In 1885 the Indiana from Council drove to the foot of the mountain, lo use a familiar exprea. eion, were btd. They attacked ever train, I believe, that croawd the pUina that year, or annoyed it in tome way. At FawneoRock they charged na several times bat were re pulsed. The train cona'a.ed of fire handled wagons, and (raveled doubled op or in two column, tide by aide, for several houia of that day. The government traina and pri Tate tram were obliged to (rare! together and in great numbera for protection. Wten we got to Lamed on the Pawnee Fork, we were halted teTeral days, daring which tioM a tbouaand wagoca congregated at that point. When the military concluded to ltt ua fe on towarda oar deatinaiion, we were pat un der n escort of one company of infantry. There were now two traina of fire hundred wagons each. One column went by the rirer route, we came by what waa called the dry route acroM the plain. icstrad of following the mer to Dodge. Ihia dry route waa fifty miles acrota to the Arkanses,and where the road struck the rirer they had jilt com menced builolng Fort Dodge, and the only water waa at Coon creek, awe fifteen or twenty milea from Larned. We camped about two o'clock ia the afternoon of the firrt day at Coon crre, and had juat got comfortably to work preparing our food, when thirty Iadiins dabbed ortr the hill opoa aome Mexican herders, killing two and scslpiog one. The one they ecalped af terwards recorered. In the hurry of eealping the Mexican, one of the Indiane,haying dia- moanted, luat hia hone, which ran direct y into the camp. He waa a aplendid animal, bedecked with paint and hia forelock and tail ornamented with feathers. At Dodge we had to lie again for num ber of daya, and when we got permnwun to start, were put under the escort of Captain Thayer, with one company of the California Column. lie need great prrciuiion, march ed part of hi command along the river.pert on the MuBh, aome in our front and rasas in the rear. We battened alowly, and on the let of August arrived at Bent's old fort. We were weary and worn: our conatant .inxiety, and being obliged to keep constant, ly within the column, alowly following the ox tram, tod not daring to go one hundred yards from the train or camp, had played ua out completely. At Col. Boone's old pl.ca, fifteen milea this aide of Pueblo, there waa an encamp ment called Camp Fillmore, where one com pany of cavalry was stationed. Pueblo waa a meagre and stinted Tillage; the whole country waa at a stand atiil; the war was over; the goTcrnment had ceased to pay out with lavish band any more greenbacks in this region. In the fall of 1865 corn was worth 10c per pound; wheat 10c to 15c per pound; floor $20 to $30 a sack; lard 40c per pound ;cfiee $1; bacon 50c; ham 75c; and ererything else in proportion. Mining had scarcely com menced. A person coming from the "elates" as it was then termed, soon found that he moat "scratch gravel," and that pretty lire 'y. or go back orer the same weary way ha had jast traveled. We concluded to ttey, and the Bret thine we did was to buy a scythe and try to make bay whilit the aun continu ed to ahine brightly through the months of August and September. The weather waa de lightful and invigorating; the motwuica were in view like a east panorama; and we eoon came to lore country on account of the climate, albeit it looked like a deaert then, and atill has the same appearance. Indeed, it not only looked like a deaert, but looked as if people would not hare long to wait to tarre to death. In the winter of '63 and '66 e bid great eport killing antelope, the en- f tire country was alive with them In every direction north of the Arkansas river; often thousand could be seen ia one band. Ia the spring of '66 we put in grain on the shares, sad moved lo Cocharaa. Thia waa ths first time we handled the plow. We had to pay 10 cents a pound for wheal, fur niah our own plows worth $60 apiece, our teams also; and after paying all expenses of lie crop, give one-third of what we might prodoee to oar landlords. It was God-s nd to ua; they provided ua with everything and then trusted us for it, Mr. Jones' career aioee that time has been a euccessfol one.
