Bypaths of Kansas History

STORY OF A BUFFALO STAMPEDE

From the Washington Weekly Republican, July 18, 1873.

A beautiful little story comes to us from down the Kansas Pacific. Out on
the plains, about two hundred miles from Denver [near the Kansas-Colorado
border], is a vertical bluff seventy-five feet high. A party of hunters recently
stampeded a herd of buffaloes right to the brink of the precipice. The fore-
most brutes, appreciating their critical situation attempted to avert the calamity,
but the frightened hundreds behind crowded forward with characteristic
persistency. The front rank, with legs stretched toward each cardinal point
of the compass, bellowed in concert and descended to their fate. Before the
pressure from behind could be stopped, the next rank followed, imitating the
gestures and the bellowing of the first. For thirty seconds it rained buffaloes
and the white sand at the foot of that bluff was incarnadine with the life-blood
of wild meat, and not until the tails of fifty or seventy-five of the herd had
waved adieu to this wicked world did the movement cease. Denver News-



ANOTHER "GOOD OLD DAYS" ITEM

From the Holton Recorder 6- Express, November 4, 1875.

BREAD AND MILK SOCIAL. The ladies of the M. E. Church will hold their
social Friday evening next, at Walker's Hall. Bread and milk and cake and
coffee will be served for refreshments.



PRESUMABLY SHE GOT HER MAN

From The Commonwealth, Topeka, July 27, 1876.

The Kirwin Chief tells how a couple from Nebraska came to Kirwin to get
married. The preacher told them he could not go ahead without a license
from the Probate Judge who lives at Logan. The bride "lit out" for Logan
Saturday evening and was back by Sunday morning having traveled sixty miles.



IT MAY NOT HAVE BEEN GOOD POOL

From the Greensburg Rustler, April 15, 1886.

There was a little sensation at the billiard hall a few evenings ago. A
husband, who had gone out to meet the boys at the club room, stayed too
long; the wife went out in search of her truant, but could not get admission.
Mild and persuasive language failed to get him out, so the wife had to resort
to the same method the farmer did to get the boy out of the apple tree. A
few stones found their way through the window, causing the "hubby" to
come out and go where all good husbands go to the bosom of his family.
