(Copyright 1M(. bjr Dm Hum* Color Print Co.I fiADERS of the Magazine Section have been entertained the last few months by personal ex- perience stories of William Ashur. a 78-year-old pioneer and former Texas ranger, who now resides at Austin, Texas. Mr. Ashur is of German descent and was among the first German fam- ilies to settle around New Braunfels and Fredericksburg, in the late fifties and early sixties.

In the following story Mr. Ashur tells of an exciting experi- ence he and a companion had while hunting with dogs in the bottoms of the Guadalupe river, near New Braunfels: When I was a big overgrown boy liv- ing in New Braunfels, Texas, we had a neighbor by the name of Shmidt who had rather hunt than eat. Late one af- ternoon he asked me if I wanted to go hunting, t...
