      It was a halcyon time for the press. It approved and it disapproved, while the troops went serenely on their way. It gave the government two courses,removal of the Apaches, one and all, to the Indian territory (as feasible as driving the oxen of Geryon), or exterminationthe catchword of the non-combatant.Landor told him to get his cap and come out. He followed the shadows of the trees near the low commissary building, and they stood there, each behind a thick cottonwood trunk. Landor watched the light in Brewster's window.
