ONE MAN KILLED AND PLANT IS
HE Santa Fc Trail Was
the maker of men as
well an tbe maker at
Btaiea. Only real men
survived the dangers
and hardships of tbe
trail, but real men
grew In strength and
stature because of
hardships and the dan-
gers. The sham per-
ished In the desert,
but the genuine march-
ed the trail unhurt. The story of the
trail Is.the story of great frontiers-
men. There were giants In those
days. Strong men and weaklings were
attracted by the pot of gold which
the rainbow stories of the trail lo-
cated In Santa Fe, the end of the trail,
iwhere the rainbow touched the ground.
iThe weaklings fell by the weary way-
(lde or lied back to tbe silken com-
forts of civilization. The strong Btay-
«d. Courage was a characteristic.
iFear was foreign to the frontiersmen.
They knew how to fight, to Qght at
close range, and to fight hard. They
'did not know much about books, but
they knew of men and the open sky
and the trail. They lived out of
doors. Thoy were honest. "Hide my
gold!" said one old-llmer talking over
his yesterdays, "I never hid my gold.
No thieves traveled In the caravans."
They were hospitable. They would
■hare the last pipeful of tobacco. Dan-
gerous as was the life tbe early trav-
elers upo nthe trail necesarlly led,
they found fascination In the very dan-
ger. "I would like to go again," said
Judge John D. Turley, one of the In-
dian fighters of yesterday, rising from
his chair and tapping with his cano
the elm under which we had been
Mated. He seemed 30 years young in-
stead of 86 years old. "I certainly
would go again If the railroad had
not taken away the danger and Bpolled
The most conspicuous figure among
the frontiersmen on the trail was Kit
Canon—"Gen. Carson," as he is spok-
en of, almost with reverence, by
Daniel It Taylor, bIx times mayor
of Trinidad, Colo., who has given
$5,000 to erect a statue to Carson In
that bustling border town. Kit Car-
son lived and died upon the trail and
was there burled. The automobile
travelers, following the old trail, found
reminders of this foremost frontiers-
man from Franklin, Mo., to Taos, N.
M. Ready and willing to talk of Kit
Carson were the old-timers who had
known him. "Of all the great men on
the trail," said Mayor Taylor, who
knew him intimately for years, "Gen.
Carson was the chief." Not all the
old-timers agred with Mayor Taylor.
"Kit Carson was not an extraordinary
man," said CapL Smith H. Simpson of
Taos. "There were many others who
wore better and older Indian fighters.
It was Gen. John C. Fremont's re-
ports that made Kit Carsun'B reputa-
It Is not strange that the trail
abounds with stories of Kit Carson
and his adventures. In Howard coun-
ty, Missouri, where the trail really be-
gan, he lived as a lad. At Pawnee
Rock he had his first fight with the
Indians. At various posts on the trail
he was stationed as Indian agent. He
married on the trail. His body, burled
Lyon on the trail. His body, burled
first at Las Animas, on the trail, was
and In a cemetery In this quaint Span-
ish town In the mountains now rests.
Kit Carson was part and parcel of the
old trail and much of the romance of
the trail Is Interwoven with his name.
He was only 17 years old when he
left his father's home In Howard coun-
ty, Mlsbourl, to Join a Santa Fe Cara-
van. From that time until his death
on the Arkansas river In 1868 the San-
ta Fe trail waB his home. Many stor-
ies are told of Carson, some of which
are doubtless apocryphal, but all il-
lustrate the character, ii Great liend,
on the Arkdr.eas river, he amputated
• man's arm to save his life, using as
Instruments all that were available, a
mor, a saw and the king bolt of a
wagon. At Bent's Fort he was the
chief hunter for eight years, provid-
ing game for food for th? 40 men In
the fort. He was on intimate terms
with the Indians, who admired, re-
spected and feared him. He could
make peace as well as war. "The
Sioux, one of the most numerous and
warlike tribes," relates Mayor Tay-
lor, "had encroached upon the hunt-
ing grounds of the southern Indians,
and the latter had many a skirmish
with them on the banks of the A>-kan-
eaa river along the trail. Carson, who
was in the upper valley of the river,
was sent for to come down to help
them drive the obnoxious Sioux back
to their own stamping ground. He
left Fort Bend and went with the
party of Comanche messengers to the
main camp of that tribe and the
-Arapahoes, with whom they had

that the Sioux had 1,000 warriors and
many rifles, and the Comanches and
Arapahoes were afraid of them on ac-
count of their great disparity of num-
bers, but that If he would go with
them on the warpath they felt as-
sured thoy could overcome their ene-
mies. Carson, however, instead of en-
couraging the Comanches and Arapa-
hoes to fight, Induced them to nego-
tiate with the Sioux. He waB sent

In the adobe dwelling house at Old
Fort Lyon, where Kit Carson died—
now part of the United Slates N'aval
hospital near Las Animas—Luke Ca-
hlll, the only person now living who
saw the great frontiersman die, told
the story of his death. "It was on
May 22, 18G8," said Cahlll, "that Gen.
Carson died here. His head rested
near this window and he had been
looking out through the window at the
world outside. He seined to want
to get out of doors. He had been 111
across the Arkansas river, where he
had been-living for a time. As he grew
steadily worse the fort physician, Dr.
Tilton, and others of his friends had
persuaded him to permit himself to
be brought to the fort for medical
treatment and hospital attendance. He
had come very reluctantly. All was
done for him that could be done, but
It was no use. He grew steadily worse.
1 here was a smile on his face as, with
his hand In my hand, he looked out
of the window at the glowing sunshine
and died. When he died the last
pnge of the last chapter of the heroic
days of the Old Trail was finished.
He was the great man of the trail."
The most memorable military expe-
dition up the Old Trail—Indeed, the
most marvelous military expedition In
the memory of the United States—was
that led by Col. Alexander W. Doni-
phan, In 1846. The thousand Mfa-
sourians, under Col. Doniphan's com-
mand. formed part of the Army of the
West, under Gen. Stephen W. Kear-
ney, which left Fort Leavenworth
June 26, 1846, over the Old Trail for
Santa Fe. "This body of men," wrote
William Cullen Bryant, "conquered the
states of New Mexico and Chihuahua
and traversed Durango and New Leon.
On this march they traveled more
than 6,000 miles, consuming 12
months. During all this time not one
word of information reached them
from the government, nor any order
whatsoever; they neither received
any supplies of any kind nor one cent
of pay. They lived exclusively on
the country through which they pass-
ed and supplied themselves with pow-
der and ball by capturing them from
the enemy. From Chihuahua to Mata-
moras, a distance of 900 miles, they
marched In 45 days, bringing with
them 17 pieces of heavy artillery as
trophies." It was this expedition,
which decided that New Mexico and
Arizona should become states of the

Wootton, as all trail travelers knew
him, deserves high place in any ac-
count of the historic personages of
the trail. Col. Richard Owenby has

having built a road over Raton moun-

The Trail attracted the young man.
Kit Carson went west upon the Trail
at the age of 17 years; Doniphan and
his soldiers wer mere youths, Wootton
was but 18 years of age when he "hit
the Trail," and James Brldger, the
foremost mountaineer, was only 16
years old when, under the leadership
of William H. Ashley, the fur mer-
chant, he went out on the Trail. The

Tulsa, Okla.—Death of John Klep-
per, obliteration of the plant of the
Central Torpedo company, a panic In
Tulsa, and general damage to busi
ness buildings resulted from the
greatest nitroglycerine explosion in
the history of the Mid-Continent Oil
field here Saturday. Only fragments
of Klapper'B body and of the team
he drove to the plant, three miles
south of the cityi were found. No
explanation of the explosion Is given.
The Central company had contract-
ed to deliver Saturday its first load
of material to blow a well. Klepper,
the oITlest driver in the field, went
after th# explosives. The magazine,
containing 800 quarts of glycerine,
and the factory nearby, were demol-
ished at a loss of about $4,000. In
the city the damage to business and
school buildings was probably $2,000.
Eleven plates of glasa at the new
Hotel Tulsa were destroyed at a loss
of $700. The Bank of Commerce and
a dozen other buildings sustained
damage to one or more big windows
and many small ones. Glassware and
(rockery were broken all over the

belief of a derailment. Oil markets
all over the country were affected,

Intimately associated with the ro-
mance and history of the Santa Fe
Trail. Near Arrow Rock, Saline
county, Missouri, yet resides John D.
Turley, 85 years old, who was a fa-
mous trader on the Trail, as was his
father before him. The lifetime of
father and son covers the entire pe-
riod of the Old Trail. Judge Turley's
last trip was in 1851, when the Trail
was yet In large use.
"We fought Indians across the en-
tire continent and carried on a most
profitable trade In merchandise with
the Mexicans," said Judge Turley.
"We bought whisky from the distil-
leries In Missouri at 16 to 40 cents a
gallon, and sold it in Taos at $3 a
gallon. It was terrible stufT, too. We
diluted It with water, making two gal-
lons out of every gallon, but even then
It was terrible. The ox teams had
six yoke of oxen and the ordinary
load for a wagon was 7,200 rounds. A
load of 3,000 pounds Is a good wagon
load now. We took our merchandise
to Taos or Santa Fe, opened a regu-
lar store, and would sell aut our en-
tire stock in two or three months. The
remnants of our last stock my father
traded for Mexican sheep at $1 a
head, took the sheep to California, and
sold them at $10 a head. I sold sas-
safras root at $4.50 a pound In Taos.
We traveled about 25 miles a day.
Tho last trip took 49 days. We met
on that trip Rose, said to be the hand-
somest Indian woman In the west.
My father made his first trip In 1825,
and the Turleys stayed on the Trail
until nearly the opening of the Civil Sheriff Mitchell has a posse in pur-
war. Various tricks were played on suit of the fugitives and it is believed
the Mexicans. There was a tariff
on every load of goods brought into
Mexican territory. The tariff was I Clothier Makes Bond

W. C. Brann, former editor of the
Iconoclast at Waco, Texas.
Because of his acceptance, last year,
as a minister of the El Reno Presby-

ity among his classmates, he was unan-
mously selected to deliver the bacca-
laureate sermon for his own class.
