The old grand-daddy used to tell their children and grandchildren their ps and downs in early life, more than the grandfathers of this day do. I us ed to sit and listen to the aged people talk until my hair would almost push my hat off. My wife's mother, when a young girl. Jived in the Creek Na tion near Wetumpka, Ala. The In dians werevery numerous in that sec tion at that time. Granddaddy used to hire the Indians to chop cotton for him and j ist as many Indians would come to work as be gave them ears of corn. . If he gave a dogen ears a dozen Indians woald come. She said that at dinner granddaddy would allowance the Indians in their meals, for, she said, ty give an Indian all he would eflt not another lick of work would he do; but go off and lie down in the shade. She said when an Indian came to .their house he wouldn't come in like white folks or holler but would slip up and peep in and keep doing that way until he saw them and then he would come She said one day they were eat- ing dinner and a young Indian squaw came and. began to peep in as they us ually did,; and the dog being loose dis covered her and inade a rush at her. The Squaw jumped into the house and said, "Ephaw Ge bucha daw," mean ing the dog would bite her. One day another came and Aunt Adeline was then the aby. This Indian woman brought her papoose along. She seem ed very fond of Aunt Adeline and wanted to ktow her name. They told her "Adaline." Then they asked the name of her baby and she said, "A-d-l-i-n-e,"too. After Aunt Adaline grew up to be almost a young woman they would tease her about her Indian namesake. My wife's mother said the Indians would go every Saturday over to We tumpka, and all would get drunk ex cept two, both men and women, and then they would fight and scratch near ly half the night. She saw them when the soldiers came to take tnem west and told tas how the soldiers managed to collect them together. She said the soldiers would go around and play their mnsi and the Indians would hear ifcM'f .run into camp. - She. said that just before the Indians left there was a lot of mad Indians and they would pass their house painted in their war paint and march in single file, one behind the other, and wouldn't look at you. She said they would eat any thing and that she had seen them come by their house toting old dead cows with the maggots dropping out of the carcass. She would talk for hours about the Indians and how they would do. Now, I will close this narrative and the next time I will tell you about Grandfather Smith's tussles with In dians around Beech Grove, Tenn. My great-grandfather Smith was a hunter and also an Indian fighter. I can't re member him but I can remember my great-grandmother Smith, for she liv ed until after our civil war. So from her lips and the lips of my grandmoth er and my father, I have a clear in sight into what took place in the knobs of Beech Grove, when the whole coun try was eoyered in cane. The recol lections of the -past and the reminis- sences of the same is rich food for Yonng America. They have but lit tie idea of the heroes and heroines who came here and made their homes in and among blood-thirsty savages. - UNCLE GID. Dunlap, New Town. Special to the News.
