Traverse ties Sioux Monument.
An attempt will be made by the
des Sioux monument com
mission to secure from the next legis
lature an appropriation wherewith to
erect a marble shaft to mark the spot
whereon the famous treaty was signed
in July 1851.
Tradition says the council between
the Indians and Governor Alexander
Ramsey was held on the Traverse
farm of La Croix, near a huge boulder
on which the gold and trinkets were
heaped at the time of the signing, and
it is here that the commission will
recommend the erection of a monu
ment to mark the place where the
Sioux deeded away one of the rich
est areas in the world.
The treaty of Traverse des Sioux
was unquestionably one of the most
important events in the early history
of Minnesota. Late in June, 1851,
Governor Ramsey and Luke Lea,
commissmioner of Indian affairs,
traveled to Traverse des Sioux, then
the largest trading post in the north
west, to meet the leading chiefs of the
Sisseton, Wahpeton and Dacotah
tribes. A delay followed and it was
not until July 18 that all of the lead
ers expected had arrived. On that
date the United States commissioners
opened the grand council and on July
24 the treaty was completed and
The signing was very ceremonious.
After the customary pipe had been
passed from Ramsey and Lea around
the circle of powerful chiefs, the docu
ment was read in English and then
translated into the Dacotah tongue by
Rev. S. R. Riggs. Throughout the
proceedings the Indians were most at
tentive, and at the end each chief sig
nified his acquiescence by advancing
to the table of the secretacry and
touching his pen.
According to the terms of the treaty,
the Indians were to receive $250,000
in annual payments for the vast re
gion, which included all of the land
north of the Minnesota river and con
tained approximately 30,000,000 acres.
They retained a reservation, ten miles
in width, extending along the river
from a point a few miles above New
Ulm to the headwaters, and the fail
ure of the government representatives
to make the payments properly has
always been regarded as one of the
primary causes for the bloody out
The present monument commission
been given an appropriation of
$300. This will probably be sufficient
to buy several acres of land and a
driveway to the treaty spot, but a
larger appropriation will be needed
for the erection of the monument.

Ant as a Medicine
Having thoroughly exploited the
curative powers of the bee. writers
have now apparently turned to the
ant. The latter like the former, owes
its medical virtues to the formic acid
that it contains. But while the living
bee is able to administer a hypoder
mic injection of the drug, the ant must
be killed in order to get it. If we are
to judge from some recent French in
vestigations formic acid is likely to
prove valuable as a stimulant and
tonic, but nothing equals golden grain
belt beer as a refreshing and toning
drink. Order of your nearest dealer
