Big Celebration At Denison In 1874
By W. W. Hornbeck, Mountain Home, Texas.
Account describes the events associated with the arrival of two railroads which were competing against each other for the establishment of commerce in the town of Denison, TX in March, 1872.
"The new town had been widely advertised as "the Gateway to Texas" and hundreds of citizens from other states were gathering there. We found the town in an uproar, with crowds of excited people milling about like wild cattle on a stampede. It was late in the afternoon when we arrived and without waiting for explanation of this unusual commotion we found our way to a secluded spot in the timber, where we made camp and prepared for a night's rest. But the prolonged racket and continual stir of nearby campers made restful sleep impossible. About 4:30 A. M. our fitful slumbers were shattered by the rumble of an incoming train and a piercing shriek from the engine whistle. That settled it; sleep was out of the question, and after an early breakfast we mingled with the crowd to learn the cause of all this "hullabaloo." Here is the explanation : The townsite company had offered free right-of way through the town, grounds for commercial trackage, machine shops, switch yards, etc., to the company first bringing into Denison a train over its tracks. This enticing bid met with quick response. Two roads entered the race-the Houston & Texas Central, building north from Houston, Texas, and the M. K. & T. (Katy) line, coming south from Sedalia, Missouri. Each of the contending parties put on a road-building force of one thousand to twelve hundred men, and the race was on good and strong…"
History Of The Rio Grande Railroad
By Anna Cora Petz
THE Rio Grande Railroad which runs from Brownsville on the Rio Grande to Point Isabel on the Laguna Madre, has the double distinction of being the shortest railroad in the United States and the only one which up to November, 1924, had the old French or one-meter gauge.
There are many prominent men connected with its history. Such names as Richard King; his partner Mifflin Kenedy; Simon Celaya; E. J. Davis, one of the early Governors of Texas; James B.

Judge D. R. Wingate, Pioneer Lumberman
By Jounie Wingate Bassett. HERE IS EXCELLENT GENEALOGY AND HISTORY OF WINGATE FAMILY AND OF NEWTON, TX.
JUDGE D. R. WINGATE was a pioneer lumberman and perhaps the most prominent among the old guard of Orange, Texas. He settled in Texas in April, 1852, locating near Belgrade in Newton county, where he remained until 1858, and then moved to Sabine Pass, where he engaged in the milling business. He owned and operated the largest and best equipped saw mill at that time in the south, owning his own vessels and carrying on a lumber trade in Havana. Judge Wingate remained at Sabine Pass until during the war between the states, then returned to his farm in Newton county, where he remained until 1874, then came to Orange, and again engaged in the lumber business, building the first improved saw mill erected in the state.
His success in life is to be attributed to energy, strict integrity, his capacity to plan and execute, and untiring attention to business. Starting from the lowest rung, when mills were only supplied with the, old whip saw, he steadily made his way upward until he reached the top and became a leading authority on all matters pertaining to saw mills, having been engaged in the business the greater part of fifty years. Here is his story. Contains excellent old photos of Mr Wingate and also of his wife.

An Incident In Early Texas Ranger Life
A. J. Sowell
Account details a bloody confrontation that occurred in August, 1844, in Nueces Canyon, when four men of Capt. Jack Hays' company of rangers were scouting for Indians. The party was brutally ambushed and the tale recounts the sad failure of two one-time brave Rangers to assist their fellow rangers at an awful hour.
"As the evening wore on Perry suffered much from his wounds and thirst. He could hear the river running near by, and was almost tempted to risk the Indians seeing him and try to get to it,, but yet he waited and listened. He could tell by the birds singing that night was not yet approaching. After what seemed almost an age to him everything became still. He could no longer hear the birds and all animal life seemed hushed except the hoot of an owl or the scream of a panther or wildcat. He now determined to leave his hiding place and make an effort to crawl to the river. Slowly and in darkness he came forth, feeling his way and guided in the right direction after he got clear of the drift by the sound of running water. Many obstacles were encountered-logs, tree tops, and large rocks-so much that many detours had to be made around them. Finally, however, he arrived at the edge of the water, and no one who has not experienced the same sensation can realize his suffering or his pleasure while drinking the cold water, after dragging himself over rough stones and logs, guided by the rippling water to its brink. He now bathed his head and washed the clotted blood from his eyes so that he could open them and once more take a survey of the situation. It was indeed night. The dark mountains loomed up on both sides of the canyon, and the stars shone bright overhead and cast their reflection in the clear water at his feet…"
