as bom in Delaware county, Indiana, on the 21stday of October, 1847. I enlisted in Co. E., 147th IndianaRegiment, March 5th, 1865. But as that greatest ofmodern wars was near its close, I did not even see the bigend of the last of it. I came to Kansas in 1866, stoppingfor a time in the old Delaware Indian Reserve, southwestof Fort Leavenworth. From among the Delawares Iwent out to northwest Kansas, in 1872, and took up aclaim on the Prairie Dog, in Decatur county. I trapped,and hunted buffalo, until the Indians stole my stock,when I had to quit hunting long enough to get even, anda httle ahead, of the redskins. In summer-time I wouldput in my time improving my homestead; in winter,hunting and trapping. But when Kansas passed herdrastic hunting law, concerning the buffalo-hide hunters,I drifted to the Panhandle of Texas, in 1876 (after takingin the Philadelphia Centennial); for the next three andone-half years you have had a pretty good trail of me.(297) 298 THE BORDER AND THE BUFFALO.

So by freaks which old Dame Fashion hath,Rose would sometimes seem thin as a lath, In some style like the willow; Then again, like a pillow,She would look as she walked down^the path. When it came to the waist-line, ah, me!You could never tell where hers might be; For one day it would soar, And the next it would lower,From perhaps F in alt to low G.

Truffle – Stuffed Banana Cookies
cookbook
Image by yummysmellsca
Adapted from Mad Hungry Cravings by Lucinda Scala Quinn, I stuffed each sweet, fruity cookie (which I added oats to fo texture) with half a dark chocolate truffle instead of adding chocolate chips. The twist was a great unexpected treat for my banana loving dad!

Makes 10 large cookies
2 tbsp ground flaxseed
¼ cup warm water
¼ cup unsalted butter, softened
¼ cup shortening
1 tsp coarse sea salt
¼ cup sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 ripe banana, mashed
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup spelt flour
½ tsp baking soda
¼ tsp nutmeg
5 dark chocolate truffle balls, halved

Whisk together the flaxseed and warm water, let stand 10 minutes.
In a large bowl, cream the butter, shortening, salt and sugars.
Add the flax mixture, banana and vanilla, beating well.
Add the flour, baking soda and nutmeg and mix well.
Cover and chill 1 hour
Preheat the oven to 375F and line two cookie sheets with parchment.
With half the dough, scoop 10 balls onto the cookie sheets.
Lightly press half a truffle into the centre of each cookie.
Top each truffle with remaining dough, spreading to cover the chocolate completely.
Bake 13-14 minutes.
Cool on the sheets at least 15 minutes.
