ico papers plcnso John foregoing advertisement ap peared in the Austin Daily Republican and ran for several issues At the time it was first noticed by the writer he was searching for other information in this old but immediately all elee was forgotten in his desire to find whether or not this heartbreak ing appeal of the distracted parent had brought about the recovery of the lost A close perusal of the pages of the succeeding issues otjhia newspaper gave no additional light on the and for a time all traces were completely Indian Raids conditions on the frontier bringing about the unsettled Indian relations were deplorable The reconstruction period following the Civil War had brought in a condition bordering on The element formerly in control of State affairs was now under the iron rule of the federal military So engross ed were the radicals in attempting to out their program that scarcely any attention was given to the fron This being the Comanche and Kiowa Indians of the Red River eountry were depredating along the border with scarcely any attempts on the part of the State authorities to punish A statement pre pared by the Commander of the Mil itary Division of the Missouri con cerning these forays read in part that the Indians were very active during the raiding season after which they would away their villages in remote living off of the plun der during the winter season and glorying in the scalps taken and in the horrible debasement of the unfortu nate women they held as It is exceedingly difficult for one living in this peaceful age to realize the disastrous extent to these hostile forays were carried out during this Even the central portion of our state was not immune to these The editor of the San An tonio Daily Express in one of his edi torials of this year complained that the warriors had carried out a raid within fifteen miles of San A visitor from West from about the same claimed that the frontier had been pushed in for a distance of one hun dred and fifty to two hundred and added that the whole State seem ed to be in a fair way of depopula An army officer stationed on the border reported that in twentyfive persons were nine and fourteen children cap tured and carried away as captives in seven were fifty horses and mules stolen and five chil dren captured in three houses were attacked and burned in one man was killed and three chil belonging to a were carried away captives and in four persons were killed on the Clear Pork of the After de tailing depredations thus tlie writer then generalized by saying that since eight hundred people had been killed along the Southwest ern frontier by these APractical Business To the casual reader the accounts eoncerning the capture of so many women and children by the hostile Indians might appear yet when one studies the detailed acr counts of these affairs the answer seems quite The savages were not only giving vent to their anti pathy for the whites in this manner but to carry out such forays success fully was a practical business venture to White traders and thieves living in the Red River country were quite willing to trade them am and needful supplies for stolen animals and and us ually the distracted parents and kinsfolk were anxious to pay them well for the return of their loved The manifestation of this as we find mentioned in the advertise ment to the Austin Daily Republican prefacing this undoubted ly stimulated the savages to take away as captives as many women and children from their homes as they could handily get away In many they brutal ly murdered them rather than be over taken by a punitive expedition sent out by the It was during the troublous times of this period that a marauding band of Comanches raided a settlement in Llano On February a Comanchc led his warriors into Legion Valley and raid ed the farm of John As a result of the the little Lee Temple Friend and his were an older sister of and her child were together with two female As the mother of Lee Temple was making her way toward the house she was struck by an arrow which transfixed both her arms and When she fell one of the sav ages partially scalped her and carried a Way his bloody The Indians thought that she was dead but when her who together with his oldest daughter was away from home at this arrived on the he removed the arrow from her body and hastily in a Under the careful treatment of friends and loved ones the mother soon recovered from her terrible Recovery of Melinda At the time the writer came in con tact with the advertisement previous ly referred Professor
