RECALLS INDIAN ENCOUNTERS
Charles J. Spruill, resident of the city of Lampases, Texas, is perhaps one of the oldest citizens of that district.

The Chili Queens of San Antonio
By Frank H. Bushick
The fame of the Alamo City chili stands spreads all over the country. In many Northern cities can be found little Mexican restaurants serving nondescript concoctions in imitation of the Mexican dishes which have made the chili stands and Mexican restaurants of San Antonio famous. At the World's Fair in Chicago in 1893 the eve was greeted with a sign in front of a booth on the grounds, "'The San Antonio Chili Stand."
Travelers and tourists who come to San Antonio usually get around to the Mexican restaurants and chili stands before they take the time to visit our world famous patriotic shrine which so many of our visitors insist on calling the "A-lay-mo."
Every class of people in every station of life patronized them in the old days. Some were attracted by the novelty of it, some by the cheapness. A big plate of chili and beans, with a tortilla on the side, cost a dime, ten cents.

Did Sam Bass Kill Grimes?
By Hugh Nugent Fitzgerald
There have been a thousand stories penned concerning the passing of Bass and many of the "eye-witnesses" agreed that Bass killed the constable of the town and then rode away to the thicket where he was found dying the day after the battle of firearms. One eye-witness gave the name of the constable as Moore. Frank Jackson was the companion of Sam Bass in the flight from the town. Bass was fatally wounded and could not continue the flight. Frank Jackson eluded his pursuers and buried himself in the wilds of the then Indian Territory.
Time sped on fleeting wings and Harry N. Graves became the prosecuting attorney of Williamson county. In the musty old archives of the office of prosecuting attorney he unearthed the following unique indictment returned by a grand jury against Frank Jackson, fugitive from justice, for the murder of A. W. Grimes, the constable who was slain by the outlaws. This must be conclusive evidence that Jackson and not Bass killed the peace officer...

The Painted Rocks of the Concho
The painted Rocks of Nest Texas are a mystery unsurpassed by any other similar landmark. On the walls of a High rocky cliff, about a quarter of a mile from the Concho river, overlooking this river and the picturesque little town of Paint Rock, the county seat of Concho county, are the peculiarly crude handwritings.
Legends in regard to these inscriptions are many and conflicting. As to their date or meaning, nothing is known definitely. Cattle herders of earlier days found the writings in existence before the country was settled, and it is the general belief that the picture writings were done by Indians and that they tell of the struggles between the Indians and white men when the white men were crowding the Indians and buffalo off the Texas prairies. One tradition is to the effect that near this mountain-like cliff Indian youths were sent to spend several days of fasting to prove their eligibility for adult tribal membership, and that the writings record the incidents of bravery or suffering that they experienced. This is the story.

Early Coryell County History
By J. H. Crisman
EXCELLENT VERY EARLY CORYELL CO. GENEALOGY AND HISTORY!
The First settlement of Coryell County, Texas, was at Fort Gates, near the Leon River, six miles below the town of Gatesville. In the year 1849 the United States Government established a fort in honor of General Gates, a Federal officer. The garrison consisted of three companies of cavalry, commanded by Lieutenant Horace Haldeman, and these troops were sent there from Austin and in their march to Fort Gates passed through Bell County and laid out what was subsequently known as "old military road," entering the county near Prairie Dell, thence to Salado Springs, thence to Lampasas River, crossing at Bob Childers (now known as Shanklin's Mill), thence to Nolan Springs where Belton is now situated, thence to the Leon near the present bridge and thence to Fort Gates. Afterward another road was opened west of Belton which made a shorter route between Austin and over which military supplies were transported. As soon as this fort was established nearly all the families in the upper country, comprising all the settlements above the three forks of Little River, upon invitation of the military authorities and for protection against the Indians, moved to Fort Gates and were provided with temporary but comfortable homes which were erected by the United States soldiers. Very soon good log barracks were built for the families residing there, and hence Fort Gates was the nucleus of the settlement of Coryell County, and most of the immigration came there for protection, until it grew to be a considerable settlement. This account goes on to describe much rich detail about the earliest days of the county.

Miss Ann Whitney, The Frontier Heroine
Gripping story of Hamilton county, TX frontier schoolteacher, Ann Whitney who was murdered by the Comanche Indians, in giving her life to save the children of the Warlene Valley school.
At 1 p. m. Thursday, July 11, 1867, Ann Whitney rang her bell to call the children from their play into the little log school house on the brink of the Leon river, overlooking the beautiful Warlene valley. An hour later the daughter of Alex Powers, while standing at the door of the schoolroom, saw a number of men whom she took to be Indians, coming down the valley. Miss Whitney insisted that the men must be cowmen from a nearby ranch who were expected by the school that day, and insisted that all children take their seats.
The Powers girl was not satisfied, and between the logs of the school building continued to peep through the cracks until she was quite sure the men were Indians. Then she sprang from her seat, took her little brother by the hand and crawled through the back window to escape. By this time the Indians had reached a tree some 300 yards in front of the school house where Miss Whitney's saddle horse was tied, and had stopped as though they merely wanted to steal the horse.
Miss Whitney closed the door and bade the children escape through the window and into the brush in the river bed below…

Spur Revives Memories of Brushy Creek Battle
By Kate Holland Makemson
Williamson county was the scene of many incidents of historic importance connected with the early days of Texas. An old rust-eaten spur of Spanish design found in a field a few miles south of Taylor has recalled the battle of Brushy creek, which took place at that point in 1839 between a little band of valorous pioneers and a horde of Comanche Indians variously estimated at from 200 to 300, who had previously made an attack on settlers in the Colorado valley, killing men and women and carrying children away into captivity. This is the story of how men, under the leadership of Captain Jacob Burleson, followed the Indians to a point near Brushy creek, south of the present location of Taylor, where an engagement took place.

McCulloch County of Fifty-Two Years Ago
By D. H. Henderson
SELLER’S NOTE – IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR EXCELLENT VERY EARLY MCCULLOCH CO. GENEALOGY AND HISTORY, YOU CAN’T BEAT THIS ARTICLE!
Account of Mr. D. H. Henderson who came to McCulloch county from Louisiana in oxdrawn wagons, in company with his three son-in-laws, T. S. Wood and family, C. C. Turner and family, and G. W. Roberts and family.
We stopped on the San Saba river for a month or so. The river was fall of fish-big cat fish. It was no trouble at all to catch all one could carry in an hour or so-big cat fish, two or three feet long. They were so thick you could see hundreds of them at one sight in small holes. At night the wild turkeys would come in on the river to roost by the hundreds. The trees would be black with them.
I have seen as many as thirty deer in one drove; the whole country was full of wild cattle and wolves; the mesquite grass was solid over the ground half knee-high where it grew; other kinds of grass-lots of it-was as high as a man's head There were lots of antelope; they ranged mostly in the open part of the country; they did not like the brushy parts of the country.
There were only a few settlers here, and no farming- only a few small patches in cultivation, with fences made of brush mostly. The whole country was wide open and free-for-all. Land had no value; there was lots of public land and a man could preempt 160 acres.
The settlers who were here in '74, when we came, were as follows…

An Indian’s Speech
By Justice C. H. Crownhart
Touching speech by the Indian, Red Jacket.
"Brother, listen to what we say. There was a time when our forefathers owned this great island. Their seats extended from the rising sun to the setting sun. The Great Spirit had made it for the use of the Indians.
"But an evil day came upon us. Your forefathers crossed the great-water and landed on this island. Their numbers were small. They found friends and not enemies. They told us they had fled from their own country for fear of wicked men and had come here to enjoy their religion. They asked for a small seat. We took pity on them, granted their request, and they sat down among us. We. gave them corn and meat; they gave us poison in return. They called us brothers. We believed them and gave them a larger seat. At length their number had greatly increased. They wanted more land...
