FOUGHT TWO WARS AT ONCE
Organization Dates Back to Time
When the Lone Star State Was a
Separate Republic Self-Reliant,
Resourceful and Brave.
Dallas. Texas is the only state
which has the distinction, not to say
privilege, of working out its own in
stitutions before becoming a member
of the Union, writes W. P. Urbb of
the history department of the Univer
sity of Texas In the Dallas News.
This fact has given Texans a singular
feeling of Independence and has en
shrined the state's institutions with
a peculiar interest for those within
and many without her borders. Her
flag, her presidents, her foreign am
bassadors, her army and navy, all have
come In for a share of the song and
story, the history and tradition of
the Lone Star republic.
Of all her institutions, however,
Texas has none which has attracted
more attention at home and abroad
than that organization of fighting
men known as Texas Rangers.
Just what is the Texas Ranger?
The question can be answered best
by finding out what he has been, dis
covering his origin, tracing his devel
opment and examining his duties. The
exact date of the origin of the Rangers
Is lost in the obscurity of early Texas
history. Stephen F. Austin mentioned
them in his letters of 1823, nearly a
century ago; Bancroft ascribed their
beginning to 1838, but in this he was
clearly wrong, for the Rangers had
not only come into existence but had
acquired a legal status before that
time.
Rangers Date Back to 1835.
When Texas revolted. In 1833, a
general council met, and, as a part of
its work, authorized the first Ranger
force. This organization was to con
sist of three companies of 25 men
each, one to range east of the Trinity,
one between the Trinity and Brazos
and the third between the Brazos and
the Colorado. The men were to serve
solely as protection against the In
dians, the remuneration being $1.25 a
day. -"ñf,
Thus was the Texas Ranger force
created in the midst of revolution, and
from that day to this it has existed
almost constantly in some form,
though under varying titles.
The first sjttlers from the United
States were Introduced into Texas by
Stephen F. Austin during the latter
part of 1821, now Just one century
ago. Why did the Mexican govern
ment permit an alien race to come in?
There are several reasons well known
to the historian, and it is said that
one of them was the desire to place
some strong arm between the timorous
Mexicans, like those of San Antonio,
and the wild Indians. The Comanche'
horse might become too hard to hold.
Quien sabe? However this may be,
an examination of the land grants
made to Americans will show that
their holdings tend to form a tier ly
ing roughly between the timber belt
and the prairie region. In short, the
Americans from the United States
were to serve as a buffer between the
wild tribes and the interior settle
ments, and on them was to devolve
the task of conquest at which both
Spain and Mexico had failed.
Mexico Unable to Close the Door.
Once the door of Texas was open
the Americans pushed in with that
mighty surge which carried the Anglo
American civilization from the Atlan
tic to the Pacific during the first half
of the last century. Mexico, becom
ing alarmed, undertook to close the
door, but it was too late. The Tex
ans for such the immigrants had be
come not only stood off the Indians,
but turned on the Mexicans and wrest
ed from them Texan independence in
1836, Just 15 years after they had en
tered the state.
This done, however, they found
themselves in a most precarious sit
uation. They were caught, as it were,
between the jaws of a great vise.

One frontier the Indian extended
along the edge of the great prairie
from the Rio Grande to the Red river,
a distance of 500 miles; the other
the Mexican stretched from some
point on the Rio Grande to the mouth
of that stream, an approximate dis
tance of 300 miles. The actual south
ern boundary of the settlements at
the time of the republic really corre
sponded with the Nueces.
It should also be observed that for
every mile that the Indian frontier
was pushed back, the Mexican line
was lengthened by just so much until
the two attained a combined length
of more than 1,000 miles! Surely no
state was ever more desperately situ
ated than the young republic. Some
times she was at peace with one en
emy and sometimes with the other;
but again she fought them both. War
was the rule, the commonplace of
daily life, and death was the price
of defeat, for the enemies of Texas
knew no mercy.
Devising a Fighting Force.
What sort of fighting force would ,
Texas devise to meet this unhappy
situation? Had the state been popu
lous and wealthy, as she Is today, the
answer would have been simple. " In
those days hep-population was less than
that of Dallas, and her promise to pay
was worth about 16 cents on the dollar.
Hard money was a negligible quan
tity. These things made a standing
army impossible. Whatever fighting
force was provided must be small and
Inexpensive in order to be maintained
at all. It must rise in time of need
and disperse when the danger had
passed. Such are the circumstances
of our early history out of which
evolved this peculiar fighting force.
These early Rangers were semi-
military in character, varied in forma
tion and organization, ununiformed
tnd undrilled, and Irregular In opera
tions. They were, in a sense, indig
enous to Texas, having sprung from
the soil made fertile by the blood of
their kinsmen, and they soon became
the frontier fighting force par excel
lence of the ' world. They . were the
forerunners of such organizations as
the Northwest Mounted Pólice of Can
ada, the Cape of South Africa and
the Pennsylvania State, though unlike
any of them. They were the Anglo
American solution of the problem of
the frontier. The true character of
the Rangers becomes clear only In the
light of that knowledge which comes
from an acquaintanceship with the
nature and disposition of their foes,
the Mexicans on the one hand and the
Indians on. the other.
From long experience with the Mex
icans the Texans had come to distrust
every word and deed of the race.
They doubted their honor, feared their
mercy and despised their valor les
sons dearly learned at the Alamo,
Goliad and San Jacinto. From the In
dians, whose position on the West
has already been indicated, they also
took hard lessons. The Comanche
warrior was a terrible foe, courageous,
cunning and cruel, an adept In all the
practices and subterfuges of partisan
warfare, and In order to meet him the
Ranger had to adopt his tactics. For
example, the Comanches always came
suddenly, mounted on the fleet prairie
mustangs, which they managed with
consummate skill, and which bore
them away with the speed of the wind.
Faced Torture and Death.
Again, the Comanches never per
mitted themselves to be made captive
and to become their prisoner meant
torture and death. Here were the
ready-made rules by which the
Rangers had to fight. They were of
necessity superb horsemen, using their
legs mostly for mounting and sticking
on. They were sure marksmen, show
ing great preference for the revolving
six-shooter. They were versed In wood
craft and possessed an uncanny sense
of direction, and they knew the lore
of the forest as well as that of the
plain. Col. John S. Ford, himself a
Ranger, soldier anil newspaper man,
summed up their qualities in these
words :
"The Texas Ranger can ride like a
Mexican, trail like an Indian, shoot
like a Tennesseean and fight like a
very devil." Above all, these frontiers
men were the embodiment of Individ
ualism. It was their outstanding trait,
their chief characteristic. They -vere

Bird Row Over Odd Egg
Fascinates Man for Days
New York. An elderly man
in tattered cnj and suit, sat mo
tionless under a tree at One
Hundred and Fifty-seventh and
Broadway, when a mounted pa
trolman, informed that a queer
stranger had been sleeping there
three days, approached.
"I'm interested in birds," the
old man said. "ParticularJy In
the domestic affairs of the pair
of robins above us. I have en
joyed their acquaintance three
seasons."
He then launched into the
story of a row that was being
waged in the nest,, the result,
he said, of the laying there of
a cuckoo's egg. "The male "jlrd
wanted to throw it out, but the
female chirped no,' and has
hatched It. I am waiting to see
what will happen next.' Queer
things, birds?"
"Yes," said the patrolman,
"CDÜ the folk here about think
you're somewhat of a queer
bird, too."
"How very extraordinary," re
plied he of the tattered cloth
ing. "Here's my card."
The patrolman read : "Prof.

nithological society" and rode
on.
self-reliant and resourceful, frequentlj
extricating themselves from difficul
ties, not by fighting but by quid
thinking. Only one thing in warfart
they had forgotten in their long strug
gle with a dual foe, and that was ti
surrender. They gave quarter some
times but never asked and never ex
pected It.
Their leaders were natural leaders
men who possessed in a high degret
the qualities they r Jmlred in others
and found essential to themselves. A
few of these men were John C. Hays,
Ben McCulloch, John S. Ford and the
two Rosses. The ranks were filled
with those courageous ones who loved
action and adventure better than ease
and gain.
Did Valiant Service.
In 1845 Texas joined the Union. The
Mexican war followed Immediately,
during which the Rangers performed
such valiant service as scouts and
guerilla fighters with the armies of
Taylor and Scott that they were her
alded as heroes throughout the nation.
In 1874 the Rangers were reorgan
ized, six companies of 75 men each.
But an important change was made in
their status and duties. They were to
protect the frontier and fight Indians
as before, but, in addition, they were
given the power of peace officers. On
the northern border they fought Lone
Wolfe, Little Bull and other Comanche
warriors; on the southwest they
guarded the Texas side of the Rio
Grande against Cortina and his band
of cattle thieves; In the Interior they
pursued and killed Sam Bass, broke
up the Sutton-Taylor feud and drove
the road agents under cover.
When not more actively engaged,
they guarded prisoners, protected
courts and dispersed lynching parties.
The Rangers were busy men In those
days ! In their double capacity of sol
diers and peace officers they presented
a novel experiment in government, and
one which did not escape criticism.
In fact, all the criticism that has evei
been brought against the Texas
Rangers has been brought again
them in their capacity as peace offi
cers. Be that as it may, during the
ten years following this reorganiza
tion the Rangers pushed the Indians
to the very limits of Texas, and
at the same tinie rendered the Interioi
a safe and decent place to live in.
The success of their work was due
largely to the high personal courage
and indomitable spirit of the officers
and men.
With the passing of the Indian raids,
the Rangers were relieved of furthei
purely military responsibility, and
from 18S5 to the present they have
devoted themselves largely to the
maintenance of law and order within
the state.
