The Scalping Of Matilda Friend
By George Reeves
JUST AFTER THE CLOSE of the Civil War the Counties of Mason and Llano in the State of Texas, were the scenes of some of the most atrocious horrors in the history of the frontier. And the greater part of these horrible tragedies were committed by the marauding Nomads of the plains-the Apaches and their like-spirited neighbors: the Comanche Indians.
In this account, Comanches murder, torture, mutilate, and scalp many pioneers; this is the story of those pioneers and especially of one brave woman.
"…the thought came to her to act as if she were dead. She managed to fall on the bed and as she felt another arrow pierce her arm. Then the savage grabbed his scalping knife and proceeded to scalp her. He skinned her head on each side, but left some hair on the top of her head and at the back. The pain was so excruciating that she lifted her arm three times. Each time the Indian hacked at her arm but hit the side rail of the old wooden bedstead each time. That old bedstead, with the three hacks, is today a valued souvenir in the home of Boy Johnson's family of Sweetwater, Texas.

The Bowie Mine Found Again
By Mrs. Edgar T. Neal
HAS THE "Bowie mine," a silver lode, been rediscovered? A sixth sense tells George I. Watkins of San Saba that it has.
History and legend broadly hint that it was more than a desire for personal profit than conscientious zeal for conversion of the Comanches that induced Don Pedro Romero de Terros to finance an expedition to the San Saba valley about the middle of the eighteenth century.
This expedition resulted in the removal in 1756 of the Spanish missionaries from the San Gabriel to the San Saba valley, near where the town of Menard now is. Father de Terros, a cousin of Don Pedro, was in charge of the mission. It followed that a fort was located on one bank of the San Saba river. In its vicinity, so history and tradition assert, there exist mines rich in silver ore and other precious metals. This is the story.
Characters: George I. Watkins, Don Pedro Romero De Terros, Dr. Ferdinand Roemer.

Early Settlement Of Northeast Texas
The early settlers of this region came very largely from the older Southern states to the east, principally from Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Virginia, and the Carolinas. They were mainly of Scotch, Irish, and English descent, and undoubtedly were very similar in type and character to their ancestors who had crossed the Alleghenies a century before with the hope of bettering their conditions on this side of the barrier.
Judge E. C. Heath, who was born near Rockwall, 1850, and 'being well qualified to speak of the early days in this part of the state, tells of his father's first trip to Texas. "My father, J. O. Heath, came to Texas from Kentucky in 1846," said Judge Heath. "His first stop in the state was for a short time with relatives at Bonham. In search of a location, he journeyed south from Bonham on horseback. He told me that he did not see a single house between Bonhamn and the Trinity River, and the only human being that animated that vast expanse of country was a young bachelor who kept the ferry at Barnes' Bridge over East Fork..."
"...several families settled around him, among the heads of which were Cary Cobb, Isham Chisum, James Keyser, S. R. Barnes, and somewhat later Ephriham Goss and J. L. M. Baker." Numerous incidents of this nature might be related, but these few snapshots are sufficient to indicate the character of the people and the nature of their quest. No less than a brave, self-reliant, energetic, and resourceful people could have met and conquered the hazards and hardships which confronted them on the frontier."

The First Fence Cutting Case at Menard
By John Warren Hunter
The first case of wire-fence cutting that occurred in Menard county resulted in the greatest trial ever known in that section up to that date and at the time, created intense interest and considerable excitement throughout the country. Although fence-cutters had been active in other counties and the local state constabulary had been quite busy in the effort to suppress this species of vandalism, the spirit of outlawry had not reached Menard; the people were law-abiding, they had respect for the property rights of their fellow citizens, and the pasture fences in all that region were regarded as being as safe as the yard fence of the poorest dweller in town. And this case of fence cutting was different from those of other counties...

The Life of Bigfoot Wallace
A Pamphlet Written by A. J. Sowell in 1899, and Its Publication Authorized by William A. A. Wallace, the Noted Frontier Character.
WILLIAM ALEXANDER ANDERSON WALLACE, better known as "Bigfoot," was born in Lexington, Rockbridge County, Virginia, on the 3rd day of April, at 5 o'clock in the morning in the year 1817. He weighed 13 lbs, and his nurse said he could kick harder and yell louder than any youngster she ever saw. Big Foot Wallace is of Celtic origin. His ancestors back to a very remote period living in the Highlands of Scotland and his great-grandfather, Samuel Wallace, died there. They can trace themselves back to a near kinship to the famous Sir William Wallace, regent of Scotland and leader of the Scottish army in the war against King Edward of England. Also to Robert Bruce, through his grand mother Elizabeth Bruce. The Wallaces were all powerful men physically. The subject of this sketch in his prime was six feet two inches in his moccasins and weighed 240 pounds. He has long arms and large hands, and his hair, before it turned grey, was black and very thick and inclined to curl. He had one uncle who was seven feet in height, and one brother who was six feet and five inches. History states that Sir William Wallace was almost a giant in strength and none could stand before him in battle. The sword which he used in the war with Edward is preserved at Edinburg and is a wonder to all that behold it on account of its size. It is also related that on one occasion, as a historian was traveling in the Scottish Highlands gathering data, he learned that a very aged lady lived near by who had seen Sir William Wallace when she was a very small girl, but had a great memory and could tell many interesting incidents connected with the days of Bruce and Wallace.
Such was the heritage of the great Texas frontiersman, soldier, Mier captive and notorious Indian fighter. This is the first part of a very excellent account of a very excellent man indeed.

An Indian Route across the South Plains
Since white men first traveled across the Staked Plains and encountered such great hardship, it has been somewhat of a puzzle as to just how the Plains Indians succeeded in making their homes on this dry rolling plateau, and completing long journeys across it with comparative ease. It was impossible for the savage to carry a large water supply on his hurried trips, yet he was not a victim of the mirages that created false hope in the minds of the thirst stricken white wanderer. This account details the successful trail that enabled travelers to cross the barren plains venturing from waterhole to waterhole.

Captain Charles Schreiner, Pioneer
Captain Charles Schreiner, was one of the outstanding frontier characters of the Southwest, and contributed more than any one man to the development of the region in which he lived for so many years. Captain Schreiner was born in Alsace Lorraine, France, February 22, 1833, and came to the San Antonio region in 1852. At that time San Antonio was little more than a village, and the surrounding country a wilderness. infested with wild beasts and wild men. Captain Schreiner, with keen vision, foresaw wonderful opportunities for the man with grit and determination, and although he was then but a lad in his teens he started out with the determination to carve out a legacy for himself that would place him in the ranks of the prominent financiers and business men of the state. In 1859 he entered the stock business on Turtle Creek, Kerr county, in a small way, gradually building his herds, acquiring land holdings, and thus expanding his interests as the years passed by. Ten years later, in 1869, he engaged in the banking and general mercantile business at Kerrville. This account details the rest of the story of this notable man’s colorful life.
