the town of Canadian is now located. There was no town there at the time, my pal and I hired to this new management at Mobeetie with several other hands. Among them there were two Mexicans. About 10 of us altogether to receive this herd of about 2500 head of cattle and drive them to Dodge City to the market. We received the herd on the north side of the river, and the very first mile there came a big rain storm. The cattle stampeded and ran across the river in to the breaks of the Canadian R. So I and my pal followed them across. The river had rose a little, so on going out of the river on the south side up a steep bank my saddle slipped off the horse with me into the river. Well, it took me a few minutes to get out of the river and my saddle back on my horse, you see, we stake our night horses with the saddle on
