adventures In that pur atilt which may prove Interesting to read They were certainly Inter esting enough to me at the time The Job was worth 125 a month and meant ceaseless danger The Importance of the pony express has to a certain extent been lost sight of but It might bo well to Impress on the reader the fact of Its value nt that time In connection with the great trou ble occurring shortly after Its Incep tion between the sections of our coun try tho civil war of 1SG1 The dllll cutties of communicating with the newly ncqurcd empire on the Paclllc through the route via Panama or the passage around Cape Horn would have left effective luformatlon stale flat land unprofitable on account of the time and the fact that the southwest section wits not open for communication to the Union authorities at WashI- ngton emphasized Its necessity The potty express by giving the gov em anent facilities for quick communi cationquick for those dayswas en abled to keep In touch with every movement and counteracted In an effective manner what might have resulted In a separation from us of our grand Pacific possessions- Its service had been repeatedly sug r gested to congress but after several rears of agitation It failed of govern ment assistance through the then dis united alms of many congressional leaders and eventually It was under taken by Messrs Ilusscll Majors Wad- dell Co nt their own risk and re sponsibility a public spirited pntrl otic action for which they never re ceived proper financial recognition This was the great govcrnmentI freighting firm under served as courier between Its over land wagon trains Its object was to cover the vast telegraphic gap be tween New York and San Francisco which began nt St Joe Mo and ended at Sacramento Cal with greater speed a distance of more than 2000 miles through a country totally unln habited bar savage Indians At that time It took months for congressmen and government officials to reach the Golden Gate or to arrive at Washing ton and It took from twentytwo to twentyfive days to send a message from New York to San Francisco across the continent It had taken stagecoaches three weeks or more to go from the Missouri river to Sacramento By means of relay stations 200 In number employing GOO hardy po flies and from eighty to a hundred expert riders my employers made It pos The horses plunge 1knocked tIll man off Ills feet Mble for dispatches and messages writ ten on tissue paper so as to avoid all unnecessary weight to be carried that distance on the backs of swift ponies In from eight to ten days The route thoscu Is now traversed by the Union Pacific railroad In those days an almost trackless wilderness swarming with Indians and highwaymen- On the 3d of April 1859 two riders started one from St Joe Mo and one from Sacramento Cal At the start the dispatch bags would be thrown over a ponys saddle The rider would mount and ride at top speed to the first relay station There a fresh pony would bo waiting on whose back the dispatch bags would be hastily thrown then off again and so on till the re lief rider would snatch the bags and dash off with them for the next lap of the long race The relays averaged fifteen miles apart Fortyfive to 105 miles somlweekly each way at full speed over rough country was a riders fOrtyjbo i J d I hardened took ttho longer trips which naturally brought them larger pity This was not an easy Job for a four teenyearold boy Hut I stuck to It In spite of idling bones nail a tired head For the first three months I had no mishaps I began to think the talk of danger was nil bosh Then as I Will galloping around a curve on n hillside trail one day I rode hush up to all eled pistol The man behind It told me to throw up gay hands I obeyed There Is no use arguing with a loaded pistol Frontiersmen In those days shot to kill The road agent dismount ed and walked up to me to take my saddlebags I tried to look scared I I and harmless lie lowered his re I voter ns he reached for the bas Just then I whirled my pony around The little horses plunge knocked the man off his feet and a stray kick from one of the Iron shod hoofu grazed the fellows head knocking him senseless Having no further Interest lu him I was glad enough to nuke my escape Here Is a further adventure of Im portOne day I galloped up to a relay station and found no relief pout waiting for me Not a soul was in sight But I heard mon yelling and shooting down by the corral back of the station I Jumped off rifle In one hand and my twenty pound pouches In the other nnd made for the trees that hid the corral from the trail I thought from the noise that there must be an Indian raid there at least- I reached the little clearing above the corral In time to see a gigantic buffalo bull charge through a bunch of cattle and rush on toward the door yard of tho station Four or five men were yelling nt the top of their lungs and blazing away at him with guns and revolvers But If any of the shots reached the brute they only served to madden him all the more It was no business of mine so I stood there laughing at their excitement But all at once I stopped laughing and turned sick nt what I saw There near the door of the cabin playing with a big wooden doll sat a little girl perhaps three years old She wore a llttlo red cloak and the bright bit of color had caught the mad buf falos attention Down at the uncon scious playing baby charged the great furious brute The men saw her peril Just when 1 did and they fired wildly and came forward at n dead run But they were too far away A woman ran screaming cut of the house and rushed toward the child She had no weapon of any kind and probably couldnt have used one If she had had But 1 suppose mother love made her forget the horrible peril nnd she wanted to die with her little girl Women are sometimes braver I think than men especially where their chill dren are concerned The buffalo was not fifteen yards away from the child when I brought my rifle Instinctively to my shoulder I wouldnt glee myself time to think what must happen If I should miss It was one of those times when a man must not fall In his film Just then the baby looked up and saw the murderous brute She clapped both hands and gave a squeal of de light She probably thought tho beast was some new sort of playmate- As sho called out I fired Tho buf- falos legs seemed to tuck themselves up under him The Impctuu of butt rush carried him nlong the ground full ten feet aid he came to a stop with his head not six Inches from the little girls knee stone dead Then after the men had pounded me on the back till I was sore the childs mother Insisted on kissing me How a healthy fourteenyearold boy does loathe to be kissed Although among the youngest of the couriers I seemed to have filled the bill and was promoted as was Johnny Fry to 150 per month but to a more dangerous route My age at the time of riding the pony express will naturally create at tention nnd possibly surprise front the readers of the present day as the youth at that age In the west from fourteen to sixteen was In nanny re spects a man from tho time he could shoulder a rifle or fire n pistol with all a mans responsibility bar voting Of course I suppose In the centers of manufacture Indoor work or In mines It Is necessary to protect children un der the child labor law But the con ditions were such on the frontier that the boy acquired an early experience and both the Indian boys and the white boys at the age of fourteen or fifteen were ranked In every way ns factors to be accounted for on any oc caslons that arose demanding energy stamina and pluck Hundreds of other boys at that time were In the same class as myself ready willing and able to do and dare little men The Importance to the white man of quick communication soon dawned on the Indians and aroused them to spe cial endeavors to harass Intercept anti kill off the messengers In charge of this work Consequently after the first few weeks pony express riding became probably one of the most dangerous occupations known In the worlds his tory and not new routo was the limit t rio lNIo tJtiii The reader can Imagine that It wns lonely It demanded endurance above tho ordinary to defy tho summers heat and winters snowstorms and blizzards skill In crossing temporary bridges and dangerous streams with shifting fords and treacherous quick sands which had to be often got over at night sometimes swollen torrents and horses nnd riders had to swim momentarily liable to ambush by the ever alert savages then the monarchs of the prairies The reader will under stand that the Indian was master of all the country outside the rifle rang of n station or fort This gave to till very atmosphere n sense of continual peril making possible a death so horrible that Its possibility was as trying to the Imagination ns capture monde Its decree a certainty with all tho horrors of torture That many riders met this fateful end Is history while other escapes were simply miraculous Those Wilt came out alive on the arrival nt n sta tlon often found that one of the riders had fallen n victim to the savage foe and had to take up his burden and In such cases he hind to pound the saddle over the stiff country for another hundred I miles The fart that tho dead I body was often sons whcre along the trail of course did not odd thoughts to the Journey = 1IIInsaltI I quick perception and rapidity Tlic buffalo gas almost upon tic child when I fired and seemingly intuitive knowledge when danger threatened and the angel of good luck assisted me to escape many a close call Several times I had bullets through my buckskins twice through my saddle and on one occasion my sturdy mount received a bad flesh wound On two occasions my good marksmanship saved mu at the expense of the roster of the Slur braves by sending two at different times to their happy hunting grounds On several occasions I had to resume the route of slaughtered couriers nota bly on one occasion which stands as possibly a record in the story of this dangerous duty While riding between the Red Buttes of the Platte and the Three Crossings of the Sweetwater I had what was considered a most difficult and lonely route On reaching Three Crossings I found the rider of the next division had been killed the night before which necessitated my cover ing his route and on arrival there tho rider who should have been on hand bad not turned up having been killed as was afterward ascertained so I was compelled to ride tho two routes without stop except for meals and change of horses successfully making the Journey or round trip without sleep only stopping to change horses and snatch a hasty meal This ride created a sensation so I will quote from an authority best able to place It on record as a historical factname ly Alexander Majors himself In his book of Seventy Years on the Iron tierAmong the most noted and daring riders of the pony express was lIonI William F Cody better known as Buffalo Bill whose reputation is now established the world over While en gaged in the express service his route lay between lied Buttes and Three Crossings It was a most dangerous long and lonely trail Including peril ous crossings of swollen and turbulent streams An average of fifteen miles an hour had to be made including change of horses detours for safety and time for meals Once upon reach ing Three Crossings he found that the rider on the next division hud been killed during the night before and bo was called on to make the extra trip until another rider could bo procured This was a request the compliance with which would involve the most taxing labors and an endurance few persons are capable of Nevertheless young Cody was promptly on hand for the additional Journey and reached Rocky Ridge the limit of tho second route on tIne This round trip of 321 miles was made without a stop oxcept for meals and to change horses and every station on the routo was entered on time This is one of tho longest and best ridden pony express journeys over made the entire dis tance 321 miles being covered In
