Written For the Old Settlers' Picnic
In company with Jacob Kltidbchor, I
loft Fort Madison, Iowa in Juno 1870,
traveling through Kansas In a ooverod
wagon. Wo arrived at tho presont sito ' M
of what is now Guide Rook, about tin eo
weeks later July 17. Our chief dilll
culty encountered on the way was the
horses giving out on account of want
of food for even grass was scarce. John
Rudolf Kroy, Sam Uiger, and 1 think
Sam Somerhalder had already taken
their homcsteiids ou Willow Creek, but
had built no homes. They had gone
bade to Pawnee county.
Immediately on our an lviil, wo be
guu a log cabin on what was then the
Joe (Jarlier place across tho creek from
the old stockade In what Is now Hast
Guide Hoc I;. Wo also assisted in build
ing Joe Unrbct's log house, tho ilrst
house built in Webster county
In tho meantime, we took up home
bteads on Heaver Creek and the log
house which we built on my houie&teiul
long remained a landmark for tho early
settlers of Nuckolls and Webster coun
ty, being seen for a groat distance.
The log house, however, Was never
completed, because of the difllculty in
raising the logs. A dugout was more
easily constructed and proved to bo
very comfortable. By this time, wint
er had come, aud we spent our fall and
winter choppiug wood, and hunting
buffalo, elk, and antelope for food, but
One incldont I recall in particular is
seeing au elk on the old Sucss home
stead, whoreupon I ran to call Mr.
Kindscher to bring his guu, as my own
was an old one, which had been used
In the revolution, and was given me
by tho government.
Ucavors, too were very numerous ns
were also prairie chlckoua, wild ducks,
rabbits, aud other wild game. Indians
were not uucommon, visiting us fre
huentlv in hones of getting food. If
successful they were not slow In tell
ing other members of their tribe. They
were especially desirous of getting
corn or to know of animals, dying of
starvation. At one time, after my wife
had given them gingerbread, I was ex
tended an Invitation to visit them and
sat In their clrclo taking my turn at
their Deace nine. Rattlesnakes were
troublesome and proved to bo rather
dangerous as was proved by tho death
of a little girl among the settlers, one
of the first victims.
Early In the spring of 1873, Jacob
Monla and Jacob, .John, Rudolf and
Beu Porteuler came from Nebraska
City, also In covered wagons aud took
homesteads adjoining mine ou Boaver
Creok. Shortly after their arrival oc
curred tho terrible Easter storm.
Although tho btorm boguu raging
early Saturday evening, I set out from
Guide Rock to spond tho evening at
John Portcnier's, hoping to seo his
sister Rosa Portenier, who later be-
came my wlfo; but after struggling!
fer Rcvcral hours through tho blinding
storm and doop drifts, I arrived to bo
disappointed in not finding hor there.
Tho next morning wo were surprised
to And our door completely covered '
with snow but managed to got out of
tha dugout by a window.
Wheat was our first crop grown here,
later corn becamo moro important.
Tho corn was taken to Hebron, Boat
rice and Sprinch Ranch, wbcro It was
ground into flour. Our food conslstod
chiefly of corn bread, corn mush and
any wild game that presented Itself.
Wild grapes, plums and gooseberries
During this time a great many peo
ple hud conie and moio were coming
every day, many no doubt, who nro
still living hero, but whoso names I do
not rocall. Jacob Kindscher lived on
his homestead until about 1004 when
he moved to California.
My wife and I are still living on our
homestead on Beaver Greek.
Do Yon Realize?
That the only protection you have against the greedy,
avaricious trusts and big monopolies of this country, which
feed on the efforts of the producer, is by standing firmly
together in self defense.
The big corporations all co-operate in price
manipulation, securing your produce for just
as little money as possible, and charging you
the maximum for goods you arc required to
The Farmers Union is the Remedy
And there is nothing quite so obnoxious in the eyes of
the monopoly as a body of FARMERS FIRMLY CO
OPERATING in the interest of LEGITIMATE PRICES.
AH Sorts Of Unscrupulous Tactics Are Resorted To
in order to discourage such organizations. They will pay
big prices for one kind of produce for a short time, in
order to "freeze out" their competitors in certain local
itiesand to evade laws which have been enacted to
protect you from such methods THEY HAVE MEN BUY
FOR THEM who term tHemselves "Independent
Stand By Your Union
Where you know ygu arc working for your own interests
and not feeding up the trust so it can take hold on you in
a new place.
