Revenge Of A Man
(By Earl Baker. Who Deserve* Honorable NoMo*
In the Story oniest ot the Aropoho# High sn oo*
Moving along the old Snma
Fe trail »■»•> nnei stward bound nnyna
train drawn by six yoko of oxen and
as It wan nearing dusk the riders and
guards were coming In closer to thf
wagons, a man mounted on a large
horse rode to tl e front of the trald
and gave the order to make camp, let
less than an liners time the camp was
made and fires built when an excited
guard came in exclaiming “Indian*
they are earned just over the ridge***
Other guards weie sent out, who cam*
back to report that a very largo part?
of Arapahoe Indians were encamped
about six miles distant in a ravine nib
the Smoky river. They were dancing
a war dance, b asting and painting
aud this, Bill Horne, tbo boss, knew
meant death to all the party unless
they succeeded in securing help.
Quietly he gave the order to brealt
camp and with all possible haste they
pushed on down the river towards tha
trading post culled “Denver”. Baft
the Indians w« re soon to discover
this move of their enemy and in tlis
grey of the **uny morning they too
took their few he.ongings and followed
the waiton train, for the chief of ths
Arapahoe’s was bound to see th*.
scalp of Bill Horne swinging from
his belt and just as determined was
Horne to keep it safe. The slow oxda
hod little show with tho fleet footed
Indian ponies and the next afternoon
the guards came in to report tha*
moving objects could ho seen on *
ridge some ten miles back and tbn
belief soon grew that these objects
were Indians.
The wagons were formed into fc.
square so to foi m a little shelter and
the ponies were brought inside of this.
The leader went into tho wagon and
soon returned dressed as a woman*
Indians came und the fight lasted for
a very short period until the littlS
band of people were surrounded and
taken. Little did tho great Chidt
know as he and his men set flro to ths
wagons that Horne for whom he had
long sought for the killing of his
father lay among the bodies dressed
In women's outfit, bis heart faintly
After taking the scalps of tho men*
the Indians rode back to their oamfi
where the squuws received them. In
the camp that eight a great dance wan
held and the Indians were happy.
Out on the prairie a man opened hia
eyes, closed them again, & short tim*
more he opened them ugain and sat
up; he was weak, he tried to stand but
was too weak so ou his bauds and
knees he crawled over the heaps ot
ashes uud slowly down the trail.
Ten years elapsed, once more over
this same trail, only in a coach pulled
by a steam engine down the shining
track came a man and on his hip 1m
wore a large forty-five caliber revolver
It was the young Iloruo of long ago*
he wes older now but Ills steel graj
eyes still hod the spark of fire as ira
neared the station of Arapahoe. A*
the train stopped he got off, went to
the nearest co**rall and hired an outfit
which consisted of a horse and food
for a long journey for it was he who
had sworn so long ago, when lying
bleeding on the ground watching swig
horse and bis young savages mar
sac re his comrades. JSarly the nfet
morning this man was seen riding
over the hills to the westward. Bfc
rode right and it did not take long Wr
him to cover many miles and soon Jfr
the distance he could see the smoke oi
the camp fires. It was dusk and h*
made camp. The next morning fife
rode tow ards the camp as Bb
neared it he saw a lone man, an Indlafei
coming throngh the woods t ward ijjSg
as ho saw hits, the Indian stopped
short and raised his bow and arrotr
to shoot, for he recognbted him. The
Indian never forgets. Hut the tnaa
was too quick for the Indian and he
shut from the hip and the red man fell
A month later the news hod rcocliedl
all the settlements and a large band:
of riders led by Horne chased the last
of the Arapahocs into Wyoming hlllb
where they would never return. Horcua
had his revenge.
The County High School Committee
will meet in special Session at my
office next Friday, February 17th, 4b
ten o'clock.
