"Whoa" I said to the little buck-
skin hoss I wuz rldln' "Whoa Snake"
I said again as I pulled up on the
cowhide reins. I had jlst topped the
summit of the last hill between the
town in which I lived and the little
cowtown of Ranger New Mexico.
"Well Snake this is about the end
of our trail I reckons 'hause It ain't
mot'n anuther mile on to town and I
guess we has come about thirty-five
miles today already."
It wuz about one o'clock In the af-
ternoon when I pulled up on that
there little hill to let Snake my sad-
dle hoss and Nig my pack hoss rest
for a spell. I guess they wuz tired
too 'cause we had come about thirty-
live miles that day.
We reached town about two o'clock
In the evenln' after we had took a
long test on the hill. I say "we"

you do as the things that anyone could or should do. Do you
live in the way that you would want someone else to live: Some
small child is saying to his parents that he should be allowed to
do some certain thing because he has seen you do this. Are you
aware of this fact: Some one is watching you and it may deter-
mine his life. It will be remembered that not long ago an article
was run in which the writer said that he came to Daniel Baker
because "I have watched the students of Daniel Baker. They
seem friendlier and more of my ideals than the students of any
other college that I have been around." Maybe someone is also
watching you to determine whether or not they should come to
Daniel Baker. Tor the foregoing reasons everyone should think
before he acts. Before you do
anything remember that some
one else may be watching you
to decide whether or not he
should do that. Would you like
for others to follow in your

We entered town from the west and

Is now traveled continuously by cais
but In them days there wuz no slch
a thing as a automobile. At the wa-
gon yard I got all the information 1
needed as to the location of an ole
house which thc reader will notice
later in the story wuz a ole abandon
shack that wuz supposed to be haunt-
ed by mysterious beings whether
they wuz ghosts or monsters It wuz
When I announced that I wuz go-
ing to visit that there place and ex-
plore it the statement wuz met with
a big laugh from all the men who
wuz a loafin around the wagon yard
oftlce. Some of them warned me not
to go there; others said I wouldn't
after I had heard the real facts about
that theie place. And right there is
where they proceedes to give me the
correct history of the place. I learnt
some new things about the place out-
side of the ones that I already know-
ed but the maintsts thing wuz this;
one man who seemed to know most
about the haunted shack said that a
door .ind walks in '.My Gawd!' I yell
el 'what has happened to you Mr.
Dickenson?' "Ooooh!' ho groans.
'Last night' he said 'I wus glttlng
i ead to go to bed when a feller bust-
ed in the door and tells me give him
me money or he would kill me. Well
I'd rulhui die than to let him steel
me money; so I tiled to get his gun
away fiom him and he shot me three
times Oooli!' He groans agin. 'Will
you go git the doctor fer me?' 'Shore
I will' I says; and I lit out fer town
Ji.st as fast as me hoss could run.
"Well when me and the doctor got
out theie we could not fin' the ole
feller nowheie. We look all over the
plate fci him but we Jlst couldn't fin'
him oi any .signs that he had left
'cause his .saddle wuz still In the
.'hack and there wuzn't any tracks
leaving the shack except mine. He
had ji.st mysteiiously disappeared and
has never been heard of since. So
that's how we found out that the
.'hark wuz haunted and of course the
toller who went out there about a
yeai ago and disappeared jlst made
us moie spooky about thc place and
af fer me I wouldn't go out to that
theie ole place fer a hundert bucks."
