----Source: Clark County News: June 1893; Compiled by Dee Zimmerman for her weekly column "The Good Ole Days" published June 11, 2003.

A large encampment of Indians, near Ross Eddy, spent a day, squaws and all, in the water, keeping cool . and adding to the swarthy complexion of the stream. They are more decent than their white friends, as they wear bathing suits. No bathing has been allowed at the Eddy, it being a nuisance of which much complaint has been made.
