requires tho city suporintondont to
mako a monthly roport to tho board

In tho interest of tho Salem schools,

Members of tho Early Settlors' asso
ciation of Missouri, who, with n party
of city officials from Kansas City, havo
rocontly boon attempting to Iocnto tho
original routo of tho Santa Fo trail,
which is to bo marked, soom to havo
sottled tho location of tho road as far
ns tho old Harris- houso at Wcstport,
Among tho older mon of tho party on
tho trail tho other day an odd bit of
history enmo out, says tho Kansan City
Star. When Wcstport becamo a flour
ishing town it felt tho need of a moro
convenient routo to tho river landing,
so a rock road" was built roachlng as
far into Kansas City as Twelfth street.
In thoso days Kanmis City had about
tho samo rolatlon to Wcstport thnt In
dopendonco now holds to Kansas City,
oxcept that tho Wootport merchants
had to como to Kansas City to get
tholr frolghf. So tho big town built
tho road, a sort of toll rood, running
mostly on tho west side of tho old San
ta Fo troll.
Tho trail 'was not at all cosy for
spoody traveling, but S. 0. Ragan took
a swift trip ovsr it onco. llo was driv
ing threo yoko of oxon down tho hill
north from Twonty-olghth street when
lightning struck a troo just behind tho
wagon. Tho oxen ran all tho way to
Konsns City as fast as bIx frlghtonod
cattlo could run.
J. S. Chick told of a llttlo fast riding
ho did in his timo on tho trail boyond
Westport. Ho foil in with four Moxi
enna who had mules to soil, or said thoy
hod. "They woro drinking somo of
tholr Moxlcan drinks," ho said, "and
wnntcrt mo to drink with them. I ob-l
"Not to a llttlo whisky?" W. It.
Bernard suggested.
''I did not say I objectod to n llttlo
wmsky. i ma object to tnking tholr
Moxlenn drink with them whon I was
already sunrHoious of them.
"Tho mules woro supposed to bo out
on tho trail n fow miles In Knnsa.
Wo sot out to And thorn. Thoy woro
not wltero tho Mexicans first said thoy
woro, but thoy said wo would And
thorn n fow miles farther away. Then
thoy rodo two in front of mo nnd two
bohind. It wns nn uncomfortablo
placo for mo. Thoy know I had monoy
to buy mulos with. I thought I know
thoy woro thieves and cut throats, nnd
I soon lost interest in tholr mulo story
flouring on how to lonvo thorn bohind.
I finally got a ohunco nnd started my
horse on a run to a Gottlomont near. I
soon dlstnucod the Mexicans, nnd I
nevor saw tho mules, I don't know of
nuy ono olso that over did."
It is n curious fact that war has boon
n factor in tho making of Kansas City.
It was tho wnr botwoon Toxns and
Moxico thnt mado tho Santa Fo trail.
Commerce with Moxico was carried on
by shlpti across tho gulf of Moxico un
til that war. Then Texas put Out some
privateers that mado tho trudo danger
ous, and it was started ovorland by ox
teams. Goods woro sent by way of
Kansas City and Santa Fo Into contral
Moxico, kcoplng too far west and north
for tho Toxans to do any damage. Af
terward when tho United States took
up tho war tho trddo contlnuod to go
overland, and to this day goods nro
shipped to Moxico through Kansas
Every ono knows that tho civil war
and tho troubles that followed sent tho
Toxns cattlo trado into Kansas City
territory instead of east by water or
across Louisiana, nnd every foreign
war strengthens tho Kansas City mulo
market as well ns tho flour and moat
trade. J. S. Chiok saidhat it was tho
war botwoen Texas nnd Mexico that
mado the Santa Fo trail nnd laid tho
foundation for tho city that has helped
to outfit or provision every wnr that
has boon fought slnco in oWry part of
tho globe.
"Tho party of city officials and
members of tho Early Settlers associ
ation who attempted to locate tho old
Santa Fo trull tho other day came
pretty near tho original routo, as I ro
momber it," said James Huutor, Mr.
Hunter is a notary in Wcstport, whore
ho has lived continuously for many
"I camo to what is uow ostport
with my father in 1834," said Mr.
Hunt or. "I was then eight years old,
and wo bad rcmovod from a farm noar
Independence, whoro wo settled whon
wo camo from Kontusky. I grow up
and wont to school in tho first log
sohool houso near a, spring about a
quarter of a mllo from what Is now
tho Wormall road. When J. 0.
McCoy laid outthe town of Westport
ho told my father ho would glvo him a
lot at what is now tho southwest corner
of Shnwnco strcot and Wcstport avenuo
if ho would start a storo there. My
father built tho storo on tho ground,
and wo ran it togother until 1850.
"From 1850 until tho timo of tho
wnr 500 wngons a day went ovor this
trail from May until Juno. Going out
of Wcstport tho ilrst camp on tho trail
was just beyond tho old Wornoll home
stead, noar Indian crcok. Tho oxact
routo of tho trail may bo a matter for
porsonol rocollcctlon, but wo can never
differ as to tho location of tho watering
places on tho trail. I can namo today
all tho watorlng places botwoen horo
Kansas City nnd Council Bluffs. This
was tho last settlement- in tho days of
tho wagon trains until Fort Union was
