lead off. They were followed by
the family wagon drawn by 3 yoke
of oxen. The cattle were put in
the rear of the wagons, and the
horsemen follow them. 1 am on a
horae. The wagon9 went on to
Capt. Marlin’s and waited for us to
come up, which we did about
10:30. 1 am very familiar with this
place as it is where the battle was
fought in the spring of '59 between
Baylor’s men and the reserve In-

dians. I recognized every point on
the way •• tho it bed been but »
few day* since. , 1 hope I may
never again be engaged in so use-
less an expedition. We moved on
about I I a. m. and went into the
valley below, where we stopped
and grazed the cattle and horses
until the wagons came up. Here
we took the right hand road and
crossed the river near the Tonka-
way village. After crossing the
river we stopped for dinner and
rested our animals about an hour.
Here 2 of the friends who started
with us this morning turned back—
Williams and Nance. We traveled
on down the river to the crossing
near the old Indian village of Ana-
darco. Here one of our teams
stalled in the river and delayed us
for several hours, but we finally got
out and went on until we came to
the old Caddo Indian villege, where
we are camped for the night. We
have our cattle in a pen. our oxen
in a field, and our horses tied up
about the camp and a guard station-
ed. We are in the yard of the
house where Mrs. Cornett was
taken by the Indians last spring.
The deed was a shocking one, and
she has not been heard from since
she with an infant in arms was
taken from their home. The lands
we passed over this afternoon are
well watered and well timbered
and will make desirable settle-
ments. The day has been cloudy
and a little cold. 1 have not suffer-
ed from cold today, end after a
hearty supper and resting a while
I am feeling quite well.

Grand Jury Report
To the Hon. Sam M. Russell,
Judge of the 29th Judicial District
We. the Gtandjjury of Palo Pinto
County for the October term, 1937,
have been in session'Jeight days,
have examined 122 witne6ses.and
have returned 37 felony indict-
ments. In addition we have in-
veatigated various misdemeanors
and have referred same to the
County Attorney and lower Courts.
In the matter of violations of the
liquor laws, we have investigated
same and have found that the
peace officers of this county are
diligently enforcing same, but at
the same time we find that local
officers are greatly handicapped by
press reports and correspondence
from the State Liquor Control Board.
We have inspected the county
jail, court house, and jury dormi-
tories and find same in excellent
We are glad to find the criminal
court dockets in good shape in all
courts in the county. We wish to
congratulate the District and County
Attorneys upon their excellent
records and their efficient team-
work. We especially thank them
for their faithful and efficient help
in working with the Grand Jury.
We thank the various bailiffs of
the Grand Jury for their services,
and appreciate the cooperation of
the Sheriff's department, the sever-
al constables throughout the coun
ty, the Mineral Wells police de-
partment, and other local peace
officers whose efforts have con-
tributed to the success of this Grand
Jury. On the whole we find the
criminal conditions have improved
and that there are few unsolved
felony cases being left over for
Earl T. Noland, foreman,
Geo. L. Welch, secy.
