STORY OF SIXTY
Conrad Schlater Tells of Ills Trip
Across the Water.
The following clipped from the
Louisville Courier will be interesting
reading for those acquainted with
After a seven weeks' hard trip across
the Atlantic Ocean, we landed at the
nouth of the Mississippi in the latter
part of April, 184!). Here wc were
ordered to throw our sleeping mat
tresses overboard, thus causing the
death of thousands of bed bugs and
other vermin. Wc here met a tow
boat and several sailing velscls ready
to enter the Mississippi river. Wc
could plainly distinguish the differ
ence between the waters of the
Mississippi and the Atlantic Ocean
The ocean water was a clear blue
color, while the river was of a yellow
mud color. It seemed that the ocean
water rebelled against mixing with
the yellow water of the river by driv
ing the same back. One ship was
placed on one side of the tug boat
and the other vessel on the other side
and with three more behind we
steamed up the Mississippi river
toward New Orleans.
Everything from now on was new
to us. When We left Germany in
March it was winter weather. Now
it was delightful spring and everything
was green, and such monster trees
with long moss hanging from them
front top to bottom. The land seemed
j JU be level on each side of the river
rr rtnd we could see cotton fields and
again the negro slaves, men and wo
men, with an overseer with a whip in
hand and on horseback watching the
elaves as they worked in the cotton
A big shipment of Dutchess
trousers came to us by, mistake.
Rather than ship Jthem back at
this late date they preferred we
sell them out at a discount. So
here's your chance to buy bran
fields. We saw many such planta
tions, the houses of the masters sur
rounded by villages of log huts for
the slaves, each of which was surround
ed by a garden filled with cabbages, to
matoes, potatoes and all kinds of
vegetables, orange and lemon trees
full of fruit. The sight was beauti'ul
to us. We also cbjoyed the singing
and dancing of the negroes on the tug
After a two days' passage up the
Mississippi river we landed at New
Orleans on the first day of May and
stepped on American soil, full of joy
and with the -best oV health and de
termined to become good citizens of
this glorious country.
Next come a miserable rattletrap
of a steamboat, no doubt hired by
some scoundrel nt good pay, to take
us on board. Again the plank was
hoisted to our ship to take trunks and
baggage on board to be deposited
in the lower hold. I did not like this
and my brother and myself watched
for our trunk and when it came wc
grabbed it and took charge of same.
This left us free to look for a better
boat, which wc did. We left on the
steamer Lafayette for Louisville, Ky.,
and had a confortable boat, plenty
of room to walk about the deck and
good bunks to sleep on. As for eating
we tipped the colored cook and had
the very best to eat on the trip. We
arrived at Louisville all (). K., and
changed boats for Cincinnati, the
mecca of the Germans and a fine city,
but owing to the cholera raging there
it was hard to find employment, so
I volunteered to assist in nursing the
I have written this and other arti
cles for the Courier to show the hard
ships our old pioneers had to undergo
from the day we left the old Fatherland
until we arrived in Nebraska.
An article in the Journal stated tha
I owned several pieces of property
and that the trouble of my husband
did not affect me in the least, which is
not true. It also stated that Mr.
Baker married me for the life insur
ance money that I had received from
a policy carried by my first husband,
which is equally untrue, as that money
was all gone before our marriage. I
do not own any property except a lot
in Oak Hill cemetery, where my first
husband is buried. I have been under
the care of a physician since last
August and my home is quarantined
now and was when my husband was
taken away to stand trial. The county
has been kindly assisting me, but if
Mr. Friedrieh desired he could turn
me and my children, whom I am not
able to work and support out into
the streets at any time.

Branson gave another look in the
direction of the young woman in
"Perhaps you were in too much of
a hurry," he said, reflectively.
"If you think," said Quibh, with
a satirical grin, "that you can give
us any points on that proposition,
you are laboring under a totally un
justifiable delusion. I haven't been
