The Lawrence Journal says:  “When an animal is killed or hurt by the cars on the Kansas Pacific the section boss fills out a blank form describing the locality of the accident, etc.  One of the questions in the form is: ‘What disposition was made of the animal?’  The answer returned to this query in the case of a Texan steer run over the other day was: ‘Disposition mild and gentle.'” The Atchison Daily Patriot, Atchison, Kansas.  Friday, October 25, 1872.  Page 4.  © Transcribed by Darren McMannis for the Kansas Council of Genealogical Societies, Inc.
