Tells Of Early Times In Coleman
Here is some excellent Coleman Co. history
by By Austin Callan
"It seems strange what changes have taken place since that day away back there in 1882 when the first copy of the " Coleman Voice" went out. Coleman was small then; it didn't have a water or a lighting system until years later. It didn't even have telephones. The first telephone there was in the Voice office and the first conversation over a telephone I ever heard was between Rich Coffey and the operator at Baird. Uncle Rich said, "Get that d-d June bug out of the box and talk to me." The line ran to Babb's ranch and on over to Baird.
The night that Cleveland was elected in 1884 they shot anvils in front of the courthouse. There was a big bonfire and a man named Hyde Nails was carrying the powder and it went off in his hands.
They couldn't flash the results of an election on the boards then as they do now. Some local politician would generally get up on a beer keg or goods box in front of a bonfire and tell the latest and then make a Democratic speech. There was a one-legged fellow they called S. Fogle and some of the gang got him up on a box to deliver an oration in praise of Queen Victoria and an Irishman shot the box from under him.
Many if not all of those who used to participate in the election celebrations there on the square forty years ago, are gone. Walter Perry, Tom Dixon, Coon Dunman, Frank Rose, Frank Alexander and other familiar to all who have ever lived in Coleman…"

A True Memorial
By Phebe K. Warner
Account of famous old Rock House of the South Plains of Texas located in Crosby county. This beautiful valley of several hundred acres is artistically framed by the circular cap rock, of Blanco canyon. It was on September 20, 1877, that Hank Smith, then a young man in the prime of life, drove his ox team, hitched to a wagon load of supplies, down through the canyon and brought them to a halt at the front door, of this historic home.
That was a great event. But no one knew it then because no one knew what that event was to mean in the history of the great commonwealth, of Texas. The Old Rock House was new that day - as new as the country it was built in And like the canyon in which it stood, all it possessed was its four walls and a floor. All the rest was an empty space without even a memory in it.
On that eventful day in September, 1877, Hank Smith was alone except for some cowboy companions. He had left Mrs. Smith and the children, George and Lelia, back at Old Fort Griffin in Shackelford county until he could complete their new home and get ready for them.
Characters: Hank Smith, George Smith, Lelia Smith Wheeler, Robert Burns Smith, Mary Smith Kirk,
Locations: Crosby County, Old Rock House Of The South Plains, Blanco Canyon, Old Fort Griffin, Shackelford County, Old Emma, the little cemetery at Old Emma, the first county seat of Crosby county.
THALIS T. COOK, TEXAS RANGER.
Brief account of Thalis T. Cook, a noted Texas Ranger by Joe T. McKinney, of Willcox, Arizona
Heroes of the Frontier
By Eugene Cunningham
Since their inception, the Texas Rangers have kept watch and ward upon the peace of an empire. Originally their chief duty was the education of the Red Man-teaching Comanche, Lipan, Kiowa, Apache et al. that the way of the transgressor was hard, indeed, when his transgressions were committed within the bailiwick of the Texas Ranger.
Forward, ever forward, went the frontier, creeping onward in the shadow of the Rangers. As the Indian menace vanished, as the roaring days of trail, herd and railroad construction camp came on, as white men rode honestly or on devious errands where once the savage had raided, then the Ranger's duties altered. But perhaps they became even more dangerous than before. It is recorded that at one time the Rangers held a list of wanted desperadoes that totaled a thousand and more! This is a story of the historical legacy of the Rangers.

Jim Goff Tells Of Hitson’s Fight With Indians
By Cora Melton Cross
Jim Goff tells in this account, "My mother, Nellie Knight, was born in Cherokee County, Georgia, and father, J. M. Goff, in Payette County, Georgia. Shortly after they were married, along in the late 1850s, they pioneered to Texas in an ox wagon. Old Babe Honey, a longtime family servant, gee'd and haw'd those oxen and when they were particularly unmanageable he spent his time repeating, "I sho' don' know what us'll do, efen Injins come while dese here oxen is so pow'ful contrary." He never found out what turn they would have taken under such circumstances, for the trip, long and tiresome from the red hills of Georgia to the green prairies of Texas, was made without Indian interference.
"Father's aim in coming West was to raise cattle. The stop was made on Rock Creek, ten miles west of Fort Worth. There was no town to speak of where the skyscrapers now stand, but the garrison of soldiers made it safe to live close by. When war between 'the States was declared, father volunteered, and was from the beginning to the end of it in Hood's Brigade. Those were trying times at home, as well as on the battlefields, for the live stock had to be taken care of, grain raised for bread, and nobody but mother, the children and old Babe Honey to do it.
"Ten years' after establishing the Rock Creek ranch, father took a notion to move farther west, and his next location was made on Tecumseh Creek in Throckmorton County…

Rustling The Rustlers In The Eighties
By John H. Brandt
Account of the role that the Army of the late 1880's played in clearing the Oklahoma Territory and the Indian Territory of squatters and other undesirables just before the great homestead run which occurred on April 22, 1899. The entire section was overrun with squatters, men who had, without any authority, moved in with their families, cleared farms, and generally established themselves. In addition there were horse thieves, fugitive from justice, as well as cattle rustlers, moonshiners, and a general collection of outlaws. When Congress decided to open the Oklahoma Territory to homestead settlers, it became necessary to free the country of the element which held the land unlawfully. The Army was called upon to do this work. This is the story.

Locations: Red River, Wingfield, Chickasha River,
The Red Murder Yearling Of West Texas
By Mrs. O. L. Shipman
This is the story of a calf and a killing at a roundup that led to many other killings. This calf, the cause of the killing of H. H. Poe once well known pioneer cattleman about Alpine, was branded "Murder" by cowboys at the roundup and released. Many are the stories told of this outlaw yearling in later days. Judge H. H. Van Sickle, for many years prosecuting attorney at Alpine, asserts that he roped the calf a number of years later, but released it.
Some say it was last heard of on the plains in the vicinity of Odessa, but there are others who aver that the calf returned to Alpine on occasions and bellows through a window of a former saloon where the last of the string of killings in connection with the original affair, took place. This is the story.

The Language Of The Cowhand
Describes the frontier Texas phenomenon known in this article as, "Cowboyese", the dialect of the ranges that is intricate and changes almost daily. Some of the terms used in pioneer days have come down, unchanged through the years, but other influences-mainly that of the cavalry in which most of the cowhands fought are apparent in the dialect.
"The top screw mounted his cutting horse, and followed by a group of chuck eaters, started to train a bunch of cattle. The corral rope was on his saddle, next to the sougan, and as he placed a brain tablet in his mouth, the mount began to swallow his head and soon turned the pack."A "top screw" is a ranch hand who has been on the ranch for years and knows the business of that particular ranch from top to bottom. A "Waddle" is another name for the same individual.
A "cutting horse" is the highest type of cow pony used for separating one lot of animals from a large group.
"Chuck eater" is the name applied to the young man from the east who comes out to learn the game.
"Trailing a bunch of cattle" means taking them on an extended trip from one place to another.
The "corral rope" was used to make an enclosure for the horses at night, being spread about the bushes.
The "sougan" is the blanket or comforter used by the puncher. He usually carries three of them and a cotton pillow. It is also called a "velvet couch" or a "hot roll."
A "brain tablet" is a cigarette, etc, etc
