The Ark of Safety. Used by rustlers against cattlemen in the invasion of 1892.' Back label: 'Wyoming--Johnson County Cattle War' 'The Ark of Safety or a 'Go-Devil' Built of two thicknesses of 8-inch logs fastened together by wire and mounted on wagon wheels to a height of six feet. Could be moved by five men with difficulty and by fifteen easily. It would protect forty men. The idea was to push this contraption close enough to the TA fortifications so that dynamite bombs could be hurled into the fort. During the day it was inched over bumpy ground toward the fort or redoubt to protect the west side of the ranch house.'
