Captain Adna R. Chaffee In Texas (on cover)
By Colonel M. L. Crimmins. This story of a great soldier, recounts the time Chaffee served in Texas on the frontier, near the northern line of Shackelford county, three hundred and five miles north of San Antonio and about fifty miles north of Abilene. This post was soon to become the biggest buffalo trading station in the country, and in one year received as many as two hundred thousand buffalo hides; consequently, it was a place where there was a big exchange of money and where money was spent freely, with the result it brought out-laws, desperadoes, gamblers, bad liquor, and worse women to that place. Organized bands under a man named Lee matched the Indians in their atrocities. Captain Chaffee also saw service in the field in pursuit of the Quahada Comanches, who were raiding his territory. The Comanches had been ordered to Fort Sill Indian Territory, but this band under Quahada refused to go. They were joined by some mulattoes and Mexicans, and they lived on such game as they could kill and by stealing from the settlement. They selected a dry section for their camp, that would keep off all troops not accustomed to a campaign in an arid country.
Further Mentions: General Chaffee made an amazing record in the Civil War, the Cuban campaign, the Boxer War in China and elsewhere. * the steamship "Herman Livingston" * Captain William Price Saunders * troops F, I, and K of the Sixth Cavalry * George Saunders, the president of the Old Trail Drivers' Association, * Leo Getters' Ranch * Dead Man's Creek * the Clear Fork of the Brazos * Fort Phantom Hill * Privates John F.

Some Incidents In The Life Of Captain Nelson Merrill
By Mrs. Starkey Duncan.
Captain Nelson Merrill, made history in Williamson county and in Travis there can be no doubt, but he left no written record of his adventures, nor his accomplishments in the agriculture and the commerce of the day. The pen may be mightier than the sword, but the gun and the plow, the axe and the whip saw, were Captain Merrill's tools with which he made the opening wedge into civilization. Captain Merrill made his home on Chandler Branch in what is now Palm Valley, two miles east of Round Rock. Kenney's Fort was only a mile away on Brushy Creek, and a few neighbors to the eastward were near enough to prevent complete isolation. For several years, however, it is said, that there was not a house between the Merrill's and the Rocky Mountains. Certainly, the Indians held undisputed sway to the west. Captain Merrill's activities were not confined to farming. He was a great hunter. He hunted Indians, he hunted bear, buffalo and deer, but especially was the chasing of mustangs, (wild horses) his soul's delight. He contrived to make the business profitable, as well as pleasant, for in one chase, with a little assistance, he captured twenty-five mustang colts, which he drove to the Colorado settlement and exchanged for cattle.
Further Mentions: An amazing two-mile long mustang catch pen three miles above where Georgetown is now on the old Bagdad road, which is Leander today* Captain Merrill came to be known as "Old Brushy," * A spring decided the location of a commodious log cabin, which he built; and to this day the community is known as Merrilltown, for its founder and first citizen. * at a settlement several miles away toward Hornsby's * Frank Brown * Merrill and Ziller." * Michael Ziller * Smithwick * Little River * the fine old Masonic school in old Round Rock * Round Rock * Mrs. J.

Heinrich Klaerner, A Minute Man
By Esther Mueller, Fredericksburg, Texas.
Account of Mr. Heinrich Klaerner, born at Live Oak, TX on July 27, 1855, He grew up in that community, where he and his brothers, as children, often found prowling Indians slipping between the trunks of pecan and oak trees. In 1873 he became a member of Captain Lacey's Company F. Minute Rangers, whose headquarters were at Spring Creek, Gillespie county. The life of the Ranger was not an easy one. He must be ready on a minute's notice to be gone for days carrying only his gun, his blanket and a few biscuits. There was always meat enough, wild turkey, deer and antelope, but this fare grew tiresome. He slept on his blanket on the ground. Mr. Klaerner recalled that often he picked grass to make a softer bed. In winter he awoke sometimes to find his blanket frozen stiff, so that he could set it up like a tent. Such was the common experience of this great pioneer and Hill country Indian fighter.

EARLY UTOPIAN COLONY ON LLANO FAILS
This communal effort was on the Llano River, between Mason and Llano, which in 1850 had only 32 residents. German students from the University of Heidelberg and from the University of Keisson, 40 of them, led by Gustav Schleicher, from whom Schleicher county was named, agreed to land 200 families in the Llano country for $12,000. This is the story.
Further Mentions: The students formed a communal colony, one mile below the town of Castell where Elm creek flows into the Llano. * the group had moved to farms around New Braunfels * The great period of German occupation of this section began in 1831 and ended in 1861 * "Society for the Protection of German Immigrants." * In 1847 there was another Communistic group of communities established on the Llano. The communities, which disappeared, were Leiningren, Schoenburg and Betina. * the Rev. P. V. Zizelmaa *
SHOOTING IRONS AT A WEDDING
San Saba, February 28.-On the 24th instant quite a novel wedding occurred on our street. Mr. Wallace Willing and Miss May Baker were married sitting in a buggy, the bride groom armed with a winchester and the bride with a sixshooter and the official officers and Justice Thomas were surrounded with a large crowd looking like a funeral procession. Opposition on the part of the bride's father and relatives was the cause of the strange proceeding, but the loving couple were made happy...
Old Days In The Old Army
Lydia Spencer Lane (Continued from Last Month). Mrs. Lane faithfully followed her husband through the most desolate and dangerous regions of the Texas frontier, and kept a journal through the whole time. This is fascinating reading and includes details of the army movements, as well as the terrors, the terrain, and the depravations endured by those who served the cause of peace and freedom in Western Texas. You will rarely find reading that includes so much minute detail of pioneer and soldier life than in this excellent account. Mrs. Lane was a fine communicator.

Texas' First Garden Club
By Marjorie Rogers, Marlin, Texas. The first Garden Club was organized, in Philadelphia in 1904. Garden clubs were organized all over the United States with the idea of studying the principals of landscape designing and the proper planting and cultivation of plants and trees. Bulletins and letters were exchanged among various clubs over the country. Ideas were exchanged. The work spread so rapidly that the National Garden Association was founded in 1923 with a slogan of "a garden club in every town, a federation of clubs in every state", a National Federation of Garden Clubs, and the promotion of National Observance of Garden Week.
The Texas State Federation of Garden Clubs was organized by Mrs. Gross R. Scruggs, Dallas, Honorary Life President of Texas Federation, in November, 1928. Seven or eight clubs met in Dallas to form the first federation of the kind in the Southwest, Texas being the sixteenth state to federate its Garden Clubs. The aim of the federation is to do co-operative work and make a mighty plea for the preservation of Texas native flowers and shrubs. The Texas Federation has a membership of over 1600 women who have as their slogan, "All Texas Highways Beautified by Centennial time, 1933."

THE FIRST RECORD of the interest of the civilized world in this particular place dates back to the year 1715, at which time the old San Bruno Mission was founded by Catholic missionaries at the present site of Montell on the west bank of the Nueces river. This the oldest building in West Texas, was one of the chain of missions built from San Antonio to California, and, like all old missions, was built for the two-fold purpose of Christianizing the Indians and mining gold. In 1832 all the Franciscan monks were killed by the Indians. Since then the building has not been used, but at the present time, one of the old brick walls is visible west of the Montell post office and very near the highway.

A Texas Circus History Incident
COL. C. G. STURTEVANT, of Dallas, writes another interesting Texas circus history incident, (see August issue. If you are interested in very early circus history, these two articles are exceptional and contain material hard to find anywhere else) which happened at Boston, Bowie county, Texas, and resulted in the cleaning out of a dangerous outlaw gang in the middle of a performance – 11 were left dead. That is the subject of this account.

Behind The Scenes Of The Old West
R. E. Fletcher.
No man of sense should object to citizens carrying side arms, for the lawless element will carry them, and in the days this article is written about the same conditions were in force, weapons were a necessity. As the cowman told the engineering easterner. "I may carry my gun a long time and not need it ; but when I do need it, I need it bad."
It can be said truthfully that few men were troubled by conscience when they made a "killing," and many preened their feathers over the incident, carrying a chip on the shoulder until they met a "quicker man." Those were the days when schoolboys drew knives on their teachers and often their parents abetted them.
If a smoke was seen on the edge of the timber, it paid to approach it carefully, the man on the quedado who had committed a cold-blooded killing was as touchy as a viper or rattlesnake; he did not enjoy close companionship, very often he possessed a disposition or complex that caused him to think the 'rest of mankind wert, "slighting" him. The cold,. hard eye of some of these fellows was often hiding the thought, "Must I kill this interloper?"
The following are some incidents that occurred in eastern and northern Texas among a people who respected the culture and learning of old Virginia and Kentucky, who read the "Courier-Journal" and believed Henry Watterson was infallible, yet they had the wild Texas spirit and furnished the men for the Snively expedition in 1843, and many of them were with Scott in Mexico. One old chap of Irish, birth related to the writer his experiences on the Snively raid and in Mexico. He wished another war would start so he "could steal some more of the little silver Jesus's out of Mexican cathedrals." He took a homestead of 160 acres in Grayson county, but got disgusted with the quiet life and traded it for a pony and some chewing tobacco years ago. I presume it was worth $100 per acre.
