Roberts what attracted Pioneer families to the Little Backwoods settlement founded at the Mouth of Root River by Captain Guilbert Knapp in 1834? that in a question which should prove interesting now that Racine a passed de Centennial and has a population of 57,000. Captain Knapp undoubtedly spread news of his venture in City planning by word of Mouth thus attracting some Early settlers but others were drawn Here by Chance and coincidence. In the late 70# and in the Ida the fish brother and Mitchell Lewis Wagon companies proved to be the Lodestone and Corea of j Good scandinavian and German i families took Root Here in that decade. But that was after the Knapp Experiment had been established and the Village had taken on the dignity of a City. I undoubtedly Many Good stories could be dug up concerning the establishment of families in Racine. The writer is familiar Only with that of Hie own family. Invoking for countrymen. It was Chance which caused Owen Roberts and his family including my father Robert then a lad of 12, to Settle hers in 1844. They were on their Way via Prairie Schooner from Henderson. Oneida county x. To Wales wig., when they stopped on the Prairie near what in now Mygatt a Corners for their evening meal. Or. Mygatt an Early county Farmer liked to visit Pioneer a they passed through his District he was attracted by the Roberts campfire so he paid them a Friendly Call.

That Why Ore family settled her recall hearing my father Tell of the incident Many times describing the hardships of the journey from the East and the sensation caused by their Fine Span of horse a they passed through the Village of Chicago. Horses were then rare in this Section a majority of the pioneers coming by Host or by of team. He said his father we offered an stir Section of land in Chicago for the team hut continued on his Way As the ground was swampy and unattractive. The tract is now in the heart of the great City and Worth millions. Arriving Here that night my Grandfather found that the Village was a Welsh settlement so he went no farther. He obtained a cont act. Largely because of his team hauling Stone from the Ives Quarry to the new Harbor which then was being constructed. Irater he became the City s first Sexton at the time Mound cemetery a established. Headed for via i. When the Gold strike was made in California in 184?. My father then around 17 years of age. Signed As errand boy with a Syndicate which was forming a Wagon tra it to go to Tho Eldorado. On the night the Wagon train left he proudly sat Titpon the scat of one of the Lead schooners. Just is the train reached the rapid there was til Clatter of a horse being furiously driven up the Road and my Grandfather appeared and ordered the boy Bick Home. Nothing Ever was heard of the Wagon train after it Cross cd a the Mississippi River and it is presumed All members of the party were killed by indians.

Cask a Deer country within 50 Miles of Madison and reserved for Hunting with the Bow and Arrow Only that probably was the most discussed item in the Wisconsin game Law pamphlet for 1934. Quot what s this Bow and Arrow stuff and just where Are Sauk and Columbia counties what just North of Madison along the Wisconsin River never knew there was a Deer much South of Wausau. Well those nuts with their arrows can shoot All tile Deer around Madison for All i care. Me for the North ?� this May be the reaction of most of the surprised gunmen. This South Wisconsin Deer Reserve also was a Surprise to most of the Wisconsin archers. We had petitioned for an Archery Reserve in the fall of 1933. Not knowing of the Sauk and Columbia country we hoped to get a a Border line county one next to the regular open counties and with enough Deer in it to bring Forth complaint from the Farmers whose Fields or orchids they had entered. In such a Semi farming country rifles Are a of out a too dangerous. Shot guns Well a Orebbe a hut not an approved Deer weapon. Well try the Bow decides tile commission. At least ifs Safe to humans cattle and probably Deer too the bowmen will spend some Money in the invaded District which May partly conciliate the Farmers whose land the Deer have despoiled. Results were nil. And that s about How the 193 4 Wisconsin Archery preserve was formed. The results As fir As reducing the Deer Supply in Sauk and Columbia counties were nil. We archers hoped the Farmers liked us. They certainly seemed to like the idea of Hunting with the Bow. The conservation commission i making a careful Check on the Experiment.

See pumping i the operation of drawing the blood to or from the surface of the body by forming a partial vacuum Over a certain spot. Wet cupping was performed by scratching the Kin otherwise the operation was dry cupping. That practice has gone the Way of Many others common in the Way Back when Days and few of the present generation have heard of such an operation. I have seen tile operation pet formed by a doctor of the old school using a Glass cup under which paper was lighted to produce partial vacuum. In going Over the Large number of relic and curios collected by Joseph Tucker 1024 Franklin Street the other Day. J came across a cupping outfit different however from the one i saw used. Many historical relics. I spent two hours looking Over h s Large collection. One of the article in the collection is a wide leather Belt on which was painted in Large letters. A ostar of the ?� it was part of it he regalia worn by members of the Volunteer fire company which manned the pump by that Nam. Another article i a red flannel rape of the kind worn by those fire fighters patterned after a Navy Blouse with a wide Collar on which was worked a Star in White. I was told that when that company arrived on the scene All others gave Way a it was the Banner group. There was a chunk of Mineral asserted to be a mixture of Copper and Gold. It weighs about eight pounds and was dug up in Racine. Ralls of hair. Another curio that attracted my a two balls of hair one of them Cut in two. Or. Tucker explained they were taken from the stomach of cows after Slaughter. Cows lick their sides and the hair adhering to the Tongue ultimately finds its Way to the stomach. The two balls were no less than three inches in diameter. Here is some Hii g of interest to user of in of. I is a a r comb about x Inch Long the lower Lieve tile Farmers whose land was used also Are to be interrogated. But Why All this bother Why is an Archer How do we get that Way having been Quot that wave for about seven years i am going to try to explain. Hunting with the Bow is not new even As a modern sport. The late or. Saxton Pope of san Francisco was the first of our modern archers. He started about 1912 or 1913, and his Book a Hunting with the Bow and Arrow a gained Many converts to the sport. This Book. As Well As his later Book a othe adventurous ?� relating his experiences in Africa Hunting with the Bow ate both in Racine Library. Liked Rifle Hunting. T had hunted Deer with the Rifle and enjoyed it. Or. Popes Book convinced me that the Bow offered still More sport to the tingling jest of North Woods Deer Hunting. But is the Bow an adequate weapon to slay a Deer the uninitiated think of the boyhood toys when Bow and Arrow or mentioned or have visions of bathing beauties gracefully posed with Bow in hand before the camera. Or else an automobile and Archery scene the lady doing the shooting of course. A of kid s or girl s sports to and they want to shoot these things at Deer a our Hunting weapons Are to a compared with the hons and arrows used by the English soldiers in the wars against the French at the Battles of Crecy potters and attn court. Against these the Armor of the French knights was of no Avail. Our weapons Are less cumbersome but fully As efficient. Until on knows that More often than not the Arrow that strikes a Deer goes Clear through the body to imbed itself in the ground beyond does a appreciate the effectiveness of this ancient weapon. The Arrow head i a thin Blad of tempered Spring steel on Inch to la Inch in Width and two to three inches Long. A pull of 50 to 80 pounds is required to draw the Arrow to the head. The maximum Range of a Good Hunting Bow and Arrow is about 250 Yards. The i United states distance record with special tackle is 478 Yards. Every species of animal on this continent in the last few years has been bagged with till Bow and Arrow and usually with a single Arrow. In 1930 t killed my first land so far Only Wisconsin Deer. It Quot a running almost directly away from Rny when t shot. At about of turn to Page 2. Col. 5 Cha Model Home attracts visitors Many tickets sold a House w he re Joseph Tucker. Portion made of Long slender prongs to he imbedded in the hair when the snuffing operation is completed. At the other end Are two Small cups separated so that they fit snugly tinder the nostrils. The cups Are filled with snuff which is drawn up into the nose. Or. Tucker said it came from Zululand South Africa and possibly was used by one of the Belles of the dark continent. Hundreds of other Relie. One could write columns on the collection. It includes curios from every part of the Earth. There Are relics of the world War and other wars in this country and overseas. It is expected the collection some Day will find its Way into tile historical rooms in the courthouse or in the Public Library. There Are books ranging in age from 59 to 400 years shells from battlefields muskets rifles old revolvers and Blunde busses tool and implements us a in cutting wire entanglements towering of or More years old leg clamps to confine prisoners of War and Armor worn by German soldiers in the world War.
