Carson, Kit
General Kit Carson - Colorado Chieftain Weekly – June 1, 1868 – Death of Kit Carson - The melancholy intelligence reaches us that Gen. Kit Carson is no more.  He died at his residence on the Las Animas, on the 24th inst., of disease of the heart.  General Carson was a Kentuckian by birth, removed early in life to the State of Missouri, and while yet a mere boy became a wanderer on the vast plains of the then unknown regions of the West.  From about the age of seventeen years until fifty, he lived the life of a hunter, trader and trapper.  He early explored and became familiar with the mountains and plains from the Missouri to the Pacific ocean.  During all those years of his wild life, he was constantly exposed to every hardship and danger.  Sometimes making his home with some tribe of the Indians and assisting them in their wars against other tribes.  Sometimes employed as a trapper by some mountain trader - sometimes trading on his own account between New Mexico and California.  His home was always the wilderness, and danger was his constant companion.  Unaided by the advantages of education or patronage, by the force of indomitable energy and will, by chivalrous courage, by tireless labor and self-denial he rose step by step until his name had become as familiar to the American people as a household word.  He stood pre-eminent among the path-finders and founders of empire in the Great West, and his long career, ennobled by hardship and danger, is unsullied by the record of a littleness or meanness.  He was nature's model of a gentleman.  Kindly of heart, tolerant to all men, good in virtues of disposition rather than great in qualities of mind, he has passed away - dying as through his life-long he had lived - in peace and charity with all men, and leaving behind him a name and memory to be cherished by his countrymen so long as modesty, valor, unobtrusive worth, charity and true chivalry survive among men.  Of his precise age we are not advised, but judge he was very near sixty years of age.  He leaves children of a tender age to mourn his loss. Golden Colorado Transcript – June 3, 1868 – Death of Kit Carson. – “Kit Carson,” of our boyhood days, General Carson of our later years, was truly a representative man. In our childhood we were charmed with the tales of his romantic career, and in our mature years we have looked upon him as one of the links “which bound us to the days when the great West was an unknown wild.” A correspondent of the News thus announces his death: Fort Lyon, C. T., May 23, 1868. Eds. News: - General Kit Carson died at this post between the hours of four and five o'clock, afternoon, this day, from disease of the heart, under which he has been laboring since his return from the East. He had been removed to the post some ten days since, so that Dr. Tilton, the post surgeon, could give him better attention than if he remained at his brother-in-law's, Mr. Boggs', some five miles distant. Thus is announced the departure of an American citizen of pre-eminent worth and usefulness. His age, sixty-five years. The retrospect of his native life embraces the origin and growth of a scheme of empire, novel to human history. The individuality of the pioneer is in him especially embodied and illustrated. His childhood was passed in Booslick, Missouri. He was reared in the small family group which surrounded the death-bed of Daniel Boone. Departing from these associations at the delicate age of seventeen, he plunged into the immense wilderness of continent and ocean, then extending in unruffled silence from the Mississippi river to the China shore. With books and their contents he was little or not at all acquainted. In the fresh teachings of nature and her inspiring instincts he was profoundly instructed. Action, stirring, uninterrupted, and telling in prodigious results, has absorbed his well spent life. What stupendous metamorphic changes have passed under his eye, succeeding one another in the solitudes. Successively have appeared the hunters, the bee hunters, the trappers for beavers and furs. The earliest pioneers of progress adventuring out into the wilderness, were absorbed by curiosity and enthusiasm, and blinded to all other impulses, as one who should recklessly embark to cross the ocean in a frail canoe. Their successors have been the redoubtable masters of the rifle with a walnut, stock, exquisitely refined in accuracy of eye, nerve, miraculous fortitude, and indomitable endurance. Successively have come the Indian traders, the agriculturalists, the guerilla settlers, the miners, the explorers, and the founders and architects of society. Of all this scenic panorama of events, Carson has been the animating and oracular chief in the field. The immense area of the continent is spotted over with the scenes of desperate conflicts, of which he has been the heroic and successful leader. Over what an immense expense of plains, of snow clad sierras, of rivers, of lakes, and seas, has he cut out the first paths, into which now the locomotives, the steamships, the organized two halves of human society, are massing the activity, the power, the condensed energy of ancient and of modern times? To his companions Carson has always been known as the most genial and excellent of men – of sleepless activity wherever a charitable act has been within his reach. Daring, devoted, and sincere, his fidelity has been unblemished in every hour of his life, and in every relation. Citizen, soldier, husband, father, neighbor – in all these relations his guiding instinct has been an innate chivalry, fro the practice of which nothing has ever deflected him. He had in him a personal courage which came forth when wanted, like lightning from a cloud – at other times unobtrusive and unnoticed. He has always been identified with Colorado, and has resided and died among us. The best of husbands and fathers, his family was a shining example of domestic love and happiness. His children, four sons and a daughter, all under fifteen years of age, are orphans worthy of their parents, and wards of the American people.

Caruth, Mr.
Mr. Caruth – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – November 18, 1875 – The Landis-Caruth affair at Vineland, has been brought into fresh prominence by the death of Caruth. Landis is again in jail, and a trial will result, one of the most interesting in criminal history. The question to be determined is whether the shooting caused his death, and if so, whether so rapidly as to establish a high grade of crime against Landis. The physician who made the post mortem examination does not state his opinion as to whether the shooting was the real, or even remote cause of Caruth's death. The coroner's jury declares that the shooting did cause his death, and on this verdict Landis will be arraigned for taking the man's life. It will afford an excellent opportunity for able lawyers to make reputation – this trial of Landis.
