FIGHT OF FIFTY YEARS AGO
Dr Frederick Renner Recalls Battle
STATE WAS IF A TURMOIL
' Had Ralhleaalr Mardere
Settler and Freighters All
A lea the Nebraska
Kurope'a war la bring;rg back fight
recollections to Umahana who have been
In conflicts, and among thoae In this lo
cality who have been reminiscing Is Dr.
Frederick Renner, who on August 10, 1SR4,
captained a handful of early settlers In a
successful csmpstgn agalnat Indian at
tacks about twenty miles southwest of
Alexandria. In Thayer county.
Dr. Renner waa officially tilled captain
of Company A, Irst regiment, Second
brigade of the Nebraska volunteers, but
as he looks back at It now. military
formalities were thlnga In dlatiae and It
waa a caae of every man getting busy
and sending Indiana to their happy hunt
ing ground. In thoae deya the redaklna
were not as apt with firearms aa they
later were, and the whites had an edge
on them In the matter of marksmanship.
It waa on August 7 that Captain Renner
and hla band started to meet the on
slaught of the concentrated tribes of In
diana againat helpless white aettlers and
scattered freighters. The whole western
country was then In an uprising agalnat
the redaklna, for they had been extremely
cruel in their treatment of whites, es
pecially the captive women and children.
It was on the third dsy out that the
frontiersmen end Indians met. It was a
running fight and one In which the rain
of bullets ass thick snd continuous.
One after another the redskins dropped
and after many of their number had been
scattered along In a bloody train and re
duced, the rest started on the run for
safety. Tired out by the hard campaign,
tha frontiersmen retired, cotslent with the
work they hsd accomplished in subduing
tha savages. In the particular locality
where the battle occurred there were no
future Indian troublea, and to Dr. Renner
and his steadfast helpers has the credit
of the change been placed.

An innocent-looking sign on the aide

from the city, according to the decipher

inhabitants, so many armed men, ao many
cattle which may be aelxed. ao many

To a casual observer the algn would
mean nothing but a suggestion to buy and
use 'The Bouillon Kub," but to a
