CHEYENNE WELLS, CHEYENNE COUNTY, COLORADO, THURSDAY, AUGUST li, 1919
text was, “Though shaltcome to
thy grave in a full age, like as a
shock of corn cometh in his sea
son.” Mr. Henderson had reach
ed the ripe age of upward of
“four score” years.
From there we traveled 21
miles south to Eads. From that
model thoroughfare we could
view most promising crops of
corn, kafir, hersey grass, as well
as fat cattle grazing on limitless
pastures of rich grass. We reach
ed Eads, which is the Capitol of
Kiowa county. This was our
first acquaintance with this fair
city to the south. We observed
this commendable feature in
viewing the town externally t'l i
mo lernly fashi >oed wide streets
After lunching at the Eads Cafe
and and heing refreshed and equ
al to another long rile we rotrir
ed our steps for honie.
We came byway of Kit Carson
and having a minor acc'Ja.nt pjl
led in their for repairs, and while
there we met Mr. James Bunker
father of oar lamented S>:d;er
boy E. W. Bi lker wiuso honor
able name is perpetuated on the
beattiful mono nent in our Court
House yard dedicated to those of
our county boys who lost their
li-ves in the great war for uni
veraial freedom. Mr Bunker in
formed the writer that ids sons
greatgrandfather evened the
land at Bunker Hill at the time
of that memorable devolution
ary battle, whence the name.
I This is a c> i icid ;ic j worth
