Some Early History Of Texas
By Colonel A. M. Hobby
From the first settlement of Texas, in 1691 to 1821, Texas and Coahuila constituted a province of Mexico under the domination of Spanish authority. After the achievement of Mexican independence, and by the Constitution of the Mexican United States, adopted in 1824, this territory constituted the State of the combined States decreed its installation, agreeably to the constitutive act of the Mexican Confederation, in 1824, but the State Constitution was not framed and sanctioned until 1827. Public officers were appointed provisionally, and derived their authority from the constituent Congress. This union, alike between the States and the Republic, proved to be au unhappy one. There was little in common between the inhabitants of Coahuila and the intrepid Anglo-American of Texas. So great was the national dissimilarity that even judicious compromises, early and graciously made, nor reciprocal forbearance generously practiced, would long have preserved the hollow truce between these divided States. Out of this tension, arose the Republic and then the great state of Texas - here is the story.

Was Red Man Or White Man To Blame?
By W. C. Holden
The trials, troubles, and tribulations of the frontiersman who grimly faced the wilderness and the "red man" is an old story. The Texas frontier was harassed, pillaged, and plundered for half a century. Indian raids were almost as common as sand-storms. White men, women, and children were butchered and scalped. The primary object of the deprecators, however, was not to extinguish human life, but to steal the horses, mules, and cattle of the settlers. Hundreds of thousands of animals were driven away by the raiders to be sold or bartered to the traders who connived with them. The loss of his work stock and cattle was a serious matter for the isolated settler. His plight was not unlike that of a man adrift in a boat at sea without an oar. There is small wonder that the frontiers man developed an aversion, nay, loathing for the Indian whom he considered as the sole perpetrator of all of his troubles. The Indian, in time, came to bear the blame, often justly, no doubt, of most of the adversities of the frontier. The early settlers came to regard the Indian in the same manner as they did the coyote and other predatory animals. Only recently we have come to wonder if he was always as guilty and depraved as he was given credit for being.
During the fall months of 1927, I had occasion to work through the records in the archives of the Adjutant General's office at Austin. One afternoon I came upon a file of material, marked "unclassified." The assistant in charge told me that the records it contained had been found a short time before in a damp storeroom of the basement of the Capitol where they had lain unmolested since the completion and occupation of the building. When I learned that it was highly probable that these bundles of letters and documents had not been opened since the Civil War, I felt that occasional thrill which sometimes comes to one while engaged in the monotonous routine, digging post holes so to speak, of research work. Before long, I came to a packet of musty letters marked 1859. Among others was a letter addressed to the Governor from the commanding officer at Camp Cooper. The commandant stated that he was enclosing to the Governor a copy of a letter which had been taken from the body of a dead man found recently in the vicinity of Camp Cooper by a scouting party of Federal troops. It is about the revelations contained in this enclosed letter, when considered in connection with the stirring events of that year, that this article is to deal.

A Texas Town That Faded
By J. Marvin Hunter
Account of the little town of Carlsbad, Texas, which was located fifteen miles northwest of San Angelo. Today Carlsbad is a "ghost town" almost, but back in 1908 it gave promise of being one of the "coming" health resort towns of West Texas. In that year the Concho Land Co. of San Angelo acquired the Mason and Hughes ranch property of 60,000 acres along the North Concho river, and cut up this vast body of land into small tracts of from 80 to 320 acres, and placed it on the market. This company, of which T. J. Clegg was the head and E. C. Perry a manager, laid out a town which they called Hughes, on the North Concho river, and every purchaser of a farm tract was given a lot in the new town. Application was made for a post office to be called Hughes, but the post office department rejected the application because there was a Hughes Springs in Texas. Then it was suggested that the place be called Carlsbad. Here is the story.
Further Mentions: The Carlsbad Headlight * The Santa Fe railroad * Sterling City * the palatial home of E. C. Perry * Mr. and Mrs. E. Laubenheim, Mr. and Mrs. S. D. Camp-bell, Dr. and Mrs. DuBose, Mr. and Mrs. L. W. King, Mrs. Pritchett, Mr. and Mrs. E. C. Perry, Mr. and Mrs. Gabe Staggs, Mr. and Mrs. F. W.
