M e-An n_deri ng By Ann ounsovolt For the third straight year, the entire history of the Trinity River Jamboree in Trinidad, I rode in the Volunteer Fire Department rescue boat during the 12 mile canoe race. Each year has allowed its own ex- periences i$ the boat. The first year my job, in addition to photographer, was to keep bubble gum stuck in the holes of the boat to stop numerous leaks. The second year we did away with the bub- ble gum and I was handed a can in- stead, for bailing water. This year firemen Jerry Taylor and Dan Phillips had a new boat. It didn't leak, they told me, and it had green carpet over the seats and along the bot- tom. The first year the river was low and calm. Last year there was a log jam mid-way in the course which caused some interesting moments while Scotty Bradley took to the river to push the boat through. This year the river was higher, there were no log jams, the boat didn't leak and it promised to be a leisurely trip down river. We hadn't gone far when the boat motor died. Dan started it again with no problem. A few minutes later it died, and later it oiled again. It didn't take The rescue boat leaned ! long for Dan to figure out that there was to one side. I grabbed for a minute leak in the gasoline line to the News camera only motor causing the motor to die at yelled at me to "grab frequent intervals. Dan eventually those brief moments worked out a system where he kept the boa "the bulb" (whatever that may have three of us, cooler, been) pumped up and the motor kept dies, all afloat in running. Only occasionally after that annual Canoe Race. did it die. "Be sure you keep it running when we talking to someone on the hank and we'll act like you killed it on purpose." An interesting aspect of going down river along-side the canoers is the comments you receive. At the start of the race contestants want to know how many canoes are behind them. About a third of the way along they begin to ask how many boats are behind them. On down the river a bit they start asking how long they've been on the river. Later they weakly ask how much further they have to go. Our interesting experience this year came when the motor on our boat died once. About the time Dan got it started we were on top of a log that was under- water. Joking aside...Trinidad to be commended for during the Jamboree year they were called ladies who started too wound up at assistance, they have who were unable to and even supply loose their supplies in find themselves heat on the trip. It takes a bunch people to make the cessful year after year recognizing the need community. Once again they put tastic program. They mended for their wc for the fine job they did. (Editor's note: While continuing our review of the News from early editions of the Malakoff News we find that not only are the items of news interesting, but also the style of writing. The following article was taken from the Thur- sday. November 9, 1922 edition.) Again we are reminded that man is only a sojourner on this Earth and soon or late the portals open and he must pass through into that life beyond. Friday night about eleven o'clock the portals swung outward for just a moment, and the spirit of Thomas Smith Bartlett leaving its earthly tabernacle passed through and the portals as quickly closed again and "Grandpa" Bartlett had entered into eternal rest. Thos. S. Bartlett was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Bartlett who came West with the Austin Colony about the year 1828, and settled in what is now Williamson county, and was the third of four children, one brother James still lives at Santa Anna. He was born in the Republic of Texas Oct. 1st 1843, and died Nov. 3rd, 1922, being 79 years one month and two days old at the time of his death. He lived under three flags, and niver wandered far from the palce of his birth. The family later moved to Navarro County and in 1870 he was united in marriage to Miss Sallie Ed- mondson of Chatfield, and to this union four children were born, namely J. C. Bartlett of Wichita Falls, J. W. Bartlett of Bardwell, T. A. Bartlett of this city and Mrs. J. E. Drummond of Corsicana all of whom are with him at the time of his departure. In early life he united with the Baptist one of the members who organized the Rice more than half a century ago. In 1895 his wife died. When his son, T. Malakoff in 1903 Grandpa came with him his home for the remainder of life. Funeral services were conducted at the Saturday morning at 10 o'clock, Rev. S. N. Methodist church officiating, after which mortal was taken to Rice where loving him to rest beside the companion of his family circle but the community at large, knew and loved him. His friendly greetings' no more, but he will continue to live in of those who had the pleasure of his friend of man. "Grandpa" had lived his alloted time years and ten, and had almost reached his His life was a long and useful one and will prove an inspiration to those who follow on. Though dead yet he liveth.
