Excerpts from the book "Early History of Klickitat County" copyright Jim Attwell 1977 "Chapter Three -- Second Attack: Soon afterward my father got a job splitting rails for A, H. Curtis. We lived in a canyon. We had some cows and they were in the corral being milked one night when a band of 50 and 60 Indians zig-zagged down the trail to the canyon. They were all painted up, war-whooping and firing off guns."

"Father and mother turned the calves in with the cows, tied up the dog so he couldn't follow us. They grabbed up us children and took for the woods. By then mother had had another baby, so there were three of us little ones. When it got too dark to see to run anymore we all crawled down in a hole under the roots of a big tree the wind had blown over. We spent the night there."

"Meanwhile the Indians found the dog in the cabin they let him loose and tried to follow him to us. Once they got within 75 or 100 feet of where we were hiding. I tell you that is something to make your heart beat by a trip-hammer."

A bicycle can't stand alone it is two tired.
