TEXANS OF OLD
A Stirring Address By Editor
BATTLES WITH INDIANS
That Alarked the Early History Of
the Great Lone Star State.
Following ia the address by Col. J.
C. "laoooaiotlvfi ") Carr at the April
ineetlnfr of the South and West Texas
Press Association held in Yoakum:
Early in the spring of 1839 when the
trees were covered with green
leaves and the earth with
green grass and many kinds of
sweet enaelling flowers whloh per-
fumed the air and the fore&t echoed
with murlo of the feathered songster
and everything alive uff-med to enjoy
existence a band of 500 Comancnes
attacked the t-eitlementa near Austin
jur-t located in the hunting ground of
They first attacked about 10 o'clock
in the mornine the houseof the widow
Coleman near the Colorado river
ixb eu miles b-ilow Austin. She was
in the garden at the time with her
little son Thomas about seven years of
age and on the approach of the In-
dians culled him and ran to the bouse.
At the door she turned to look furl
little Tr.omae and as she did so an In
dian fchot an arrow into her neck
Altering the bouse now Mrs Coleman
assisted by another son thirteen ytars
eld. barred the door and then taklDg
down a rifle with the instinot paternal
of tryioz to defend her family sat
down with the gun across her lap.
The deadly arrow however had done
Its work aod she soon fell frcm the
chair and expired after withdrawing
the arrow. The son now took posset
eion of the srua and a the Indians
approached the door fired through it
and killed their chief who fell aeaa
on the door sto. Twice more the
gallant boy loaded and fired the rifle
and killed one more Indian ana
wounded the third. An Iodian
now however thrust a lance through
a orack in the house and ran the brave
boy through the body. He fell near the
bed where bis sisters ana oroiner were
concealed and the eldest girl took bis
head in her lap. While bleeding to
death he told the poor little ones that
he would not groan to let them know
that he was wounded "f ather is dead
mother !s dead" eaid be "and I am
dving but something tells me that
wud will protect you." The Indians
not knowing the situation and fearing
thedeadly rifla balls failed to enter the
bouse and the balance of the children
wero saved on account of the heroism
of the pa'lant frontier boy who sup
pressed his dying groans so that the
Indians would not know that they had
disaoieJ aim. LiikttS 1 nomas was
oarriei off- aad Texas history tells us
of the defeat of the Indians and his
rescue by the gallant Ed Burleson and
hie no less gallant men. A brother
however of General Burleson was
killed and three others among whom
wns Ed B'akelv whose mother was a
widow. On arriving at Port Willbarg-
er where tne families were forted up
the dsad bodies were deposltedin a
room to themselves amid the
frantio shrieks of mothers and wives.
Mrs. Blakely started into the 'room to
take a last look at her son but was
stopped and told not to go in as Edward
was shot in the face and horribly dis-
figured and that the sight would be
too painful for her. She claimed and
demanded the right as a mother to
take a last look at ber son; it was
granted and going into the room-
kneeled by his body wiped the
blood and brains oozing from
his forehead kissed him and for a
moment rested her head upon his
Manly breast; and then rising pale
and calm exclaimed in a loud
clear voice: "His father and brother
died in defense of their country and
now he is dead my only living pro-
tector. But if I bad a thousand eons
and my country needed tbem I would
give them up." Her husband was
killed at the battle of San Jacinto
and ber other son was killed in a
battle with the Indians.
A similar incident is recorded during

She builds all
her hopes upon
and around those
which she cher-
ishes toward the
ones who are
dear to her and
which she looks
to receive from them in return.
This is woman's nature; it is the God-
given instinct that makes her a fond
and tender sweetheart ; a comforting
helpful wife ; an ever-loving solicitous
MTien a woman feels that the responsi-
bilities and duties of wifehood and moth-
erhood have become irksome to her a
burden and trouble rather than a source
of-uplifting and inspiration it shows that
there is some deficiency in her physical
i.-ke-np; some abnormal and unhealthy
condition of the delicate and important
special structure of womanhood.

stay for weeks.
"I tried different doctors but with little bene-

trial. I began to take 'Favorite Prescription'
in November and I had a nice little baby girl in

Wall uiesseneera were sent east on
swifs horses t notify the people and
collett voluof ers to fijht them. One
o' tr.e-e sc utts was General Henry
E McCullocb at that time a lieuten-
ant in the ranging company of Capt-
ain Jack Bays. Among the noble
pioneer wbmen of ttat t.me who lived
ia Gonzales county and who had lost a
son in the lmo was Mrs. Mildred
P. King. Wh-n Mcculloch arrived
at the house of Mr. King he entered
and toid his business. "I know you
ara too old logo" he said to Mr. King
''but is there not some one on your
place that can go?'' The old man

gling between his feelings a a parent
aad love of bis country. The only
son he hd old enough to bear arm
'and take the li-ld ia defence of bis
country wre standing impatient for
the answer. Mrs. King then rpoke up
and eaid: "John might be spared from
home a few days very well." '"But"
said the old roan as bis eyes filled
witb teare -'we lost William at the
Alano can wo see John go too?" The
rnotbi'" looked hlrn full in the face aod
in a firm m Id voice eaid 'Tis true
William die.l at the Alamo aad e
have no son to spare but we - had
bettar lose th-m all than our country."
Ha went and like 1 true son of a norle
moiher who ha1 cfTered him If need

stood amid ttie clafh of arms and din
of battle sde by side with the decend-
ants of the heroes of the Alamo and
other citizens of the country till
victory perched upon our baoner and
the "Lone Star" waved In triumph
ovsr the bloody field of Slado.
