YUKON, CANADIAN COUNTY, OKLAHOMA. FRIDAY. FEBRUARY 28. 1SKK
Many of Uncle Sam's Greatest
Generals Have Been
Today Fort Reno practically
ceases to be a fort. At 6 o'clock
this evening a special train will
pull out from Reno for Fort
McKenzie, bearing the soldiers
who have been stationed at the
fort here. Probably 15 soldiers
will be left here to take care of
the government property until
it can be removed. Then the
remnant of the regiment will go,
and Ben Clark, the old time
scout, will be left in charge of
the buildings and reservation.
In a short time about 2,000
horses will be sent to the reser-
vation here and unless the war
department later determines to
change its present plan Fort
Reno will hereafter be used as
a remount station, and horses in-
stead of men, will be there
drilled in the acts of war.
Many old time soldiers, as well
as the citizens of El Reno will
regret the abandonment of Fort
Reno. It has been an army post
for many years and many of the
leading generals of Uncle
Sam's army have been at
different times stationed there.
Among them are Generals Cus-
ter, Crook, Miles, McKenzie, the
two Hatches, Lawton. Baldwin,
Hayes, Mills, Misener, Wade,
Gierson, Potter, Black. McKas-j
key, Bates, Ranch'11, Dodge and
others. From Fort Reno Gen-
er, I Custer follows' the rebel-
lious Cheyennes and Arapahoes
to where the town of Cheyenne
now stands, and there almost
annihilated the band. And for
ye.rs the only safeguard that
travelers and settlers in this
portion of the west hud was the
soldiers stationed at Fori Reno.
Fort Reno was established in
1875, shortly after the Indian
agency at Darlington was cre-
ated. Its record as a health-
ful post is better th?n that of
any other post in the United
States, and, with its splendid
site and advantageous location
considered, no good reason can
be given for its abandonment.
Lived Life of Torture.
That Father Leo Heinricho,
who was murdered by Giuseppe
Alio, an Italian anarchist, while
giving Communion in St. Eliza-
beth's church at Denver last
Sunday morniner, lived a life of
awful torture was brought to
light while preparing his body
That Father Leo lived a life of severe
austerity evidenced by a discovery
made by the coroner when ho prepared
the body for burial. Next to the skin
of Father Leo wrapped about the waist
and upper arms were heavy bands of
linked steel chains and on each link
was attached a hook every one sharp-
ened to a needles point in such a
fashion that each move the priest
made caused the hooks to pierce his
flesh and remisd him of the life and
death of Him in whose steps ho |
struggled to follow. Father Leo
never spoke of his mode of penance, 1
even to his fellow clergy. Father'
Eusebius s ud that no one in the mona-
stery surmised that the priest was
undergoing unusual anil severe pen-
nance. Ilis body and upper arms were 1
calloused entire, showing that when
the pain became deadened because of
the toughtened skin, he had taken the
claws and adjusted them so that the ,
pains might como again with renewed 1
