The Texas Rangers and The San Saba Mob

Submitted by Ross J. Cox, Sr.

After the elections, the Ranger detachment was ordered away to the Mexican border. The Spanish-American War was raging on, and troubles were anticipated. McDonald and the detachment left without Neal and Perry. Neal had married a local girl from San Saba county and decided to settle down. Perry also decided to settle, at least for a while, in San Saba. After all, these men had lived on the land, rode through its splendid valleys, experienced the wide-open spaces and marveled at its beauty. There was a certain charm about the place which even the Mob had no authority to rule over. After working and living in the county so long and meeting so many people, the men were attracted to the place. Their presence was still needed.

Reading Recommendations:

Florence Nightingale, The Making of an Icon, Mark Bostridge -

The common soldier's savior, the standard bearer of modern nursing, a pioneering social reformer: Florence Nightingale belongs to that select band of historical characters who are instantly recognizable. Homeschooled, bound for the life of an educated Victorian lady, Nightingale scandalized her family when she found her calling as a nurse, a thoroughly unsuitable profession for a woman of her class.

The Richland Springs Report

By Sue Ransom

What a great spring break. I know the kids are all groaning because they have to get up tomorrow and go to school. I could be wrong, but I think I hear a few teachers groaning as well. I know I am, but it is because of this silly time saving. I’m back to getting up in the dark and going to school at first light. That just isn’t appealing to me. I am a daylight person. Perhaps if we send thousands of emails to the Texas legislature, they would do away with daylight savings? I suppose when I was younger having more daylight after I returned from work was good. Now that I am ancient; I don’t need extra hours to work. I want to wake up with the sun then go to work. Congratulations by the way, to Flora Appleton and her win at the Houston fair. She’s bringing home a hefty sum for her future college costs.
