BIOGRAPHY: Baker County Sketch Book, 1920, Yarns at the Alexanders, A girl who was teaching at McEwen came home to Auburn for the weekend and returned by stage. One of the boys wrote a letter to Charles Duckworth asking him to come after her and drive her home. This letter was supposed to come from the young woman. Duckworth lived just out of McEwen. Receiving the letter he hastened to borrow his brother's horse and rode to Auburn. The girl had gone back by stage. The local girls didn't like Charles Duckworth, and the trick would be enjoyed by many of them. One night there was a dance at Auburn. Charles Duckworth rode about three miles for his girl. His brothers, John and Jim and John Parkinson borrowed Dave Littlefield's wagon and tried to get to the girl before Charles could. But they all rode back in the wagon without the girl. A miner wanted to marry Jim Sykes daughter. "No, Siree!" Not unless the boys buy a keg of whiskey. They scurried up a silk dress for the girl. Someone yelled, "Sykes is coming." The fellows grabbed up the girl in her finery and made a dash through the brush to get her to the minister's house before being caught by her father. In the mad haste the bride's dress was torn from her body--almost. It was all useless. Sykes was not coming at all. Just a false alarm. A dinner dance was given. They wanted oyster soup served. Where could they get milk? Men scurried around in the darkness to find milk? No luck. It was kept in a cave. They used water instead. Some women had gone to the dance and left two old bachelors to care for their babies until their return. The bachelors tore up shirts to make sugar teats to keep the babies from crying.
