An old man, nearly a hundred
years old, by the name of Kotiski,
says that, when a small boy, he
used to listen to the conversation
of two very aged men, who would
sometimes sit up and talk nearly
the whole night ; and among other
things they told were the following:
That there was a God, the father
and the son ; that these alone cre
ated all tilings ; that they were al
ways present, and knew all we said
and did, and that the father sent
the son to attend to and manage
the affairs of the world. Prayers
were to be directed to these two,
and also to Aqua, Abraham, not,
however, as to God, but as to their
great father, who, though a man
like themselves, was greater or
wiser than themselves.
When God created the world, he
made a heaven or firmament about
as high as the tops of the moun
tains, but this was too warm. He
thnn oreated a second, which was
Big Pheasant relates the history
of the creation, received from his
grandmother and handed down
from the old men, before they had
any knowlodgc from the -vhitcs.
Boinrrs from above came down and
created the world, and cvorythmg
connected with it. They then called
a council and created the man, and
gave him life. The man then fell
into a sleep, and the Lord took a
rib from his side and made a wo
man, and gave her to the man.
God instructed them about marri
age, and told them to multiply.
This woman was the mothor of all
living people, i. c., of all nations.
God directed them, also, cot to use
vulgar language nor tell a lie, as
these would be very wicked.

We hear of a few cases of black
leg among calves on the range,
though no one range Tcports more
than half a dozen cases. Without
going Into a scientific discussion of
the 1 ature of the discase.or indulg
ing in any big words, we want to
say to ranchmen that there is very
little trouble in eettinc rid of the
plague. After the disease once
takes hold of animal it is all the
same as a carcass, for it works rap-
fidly. But the moment one of your
calves dies with it, round all of the
balance up and give them a sharp
nra for two or three miles and back,
driving fast enough to get up an
active circulation of the blood.
Keep this up for a week and you
will have no more black leg. No
tosses will occur from the time you
commence ihis process. Should the
disease break out again, weeks
later, repeat, and keep it up until
grass Cflmes. It is sometimes
difficult to get the calves together
but it is the only sure way of sav
ing them that can be well resorted
to on the open range. Xorthu:ct

and in the seventh fixed His abode.
During some of their prayers
they Taiss their hands to the first,
second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth
and seventh heaven, and then ex
press their desires to -God, who
dwells there. But when they sung
that special prayer designed for the
morning of every seventh day,they
commenced with the third heaven,
ascending to the fourth, fifth.sixth,
seventh, and then uttered their
prayer to the father and the son,in
substance as follows: "Oh, God,
thou hast croatcd us, and hast the
hearts of all in thy hands. We
pray for thine aid, and for long life
and health. Aqua (Abraham) our
father taught us to pray ,thus."
They then prayed to Abraham to
take them into his arms. This
prayer was .sung every seventh
morning, seven times, commencing
a little before day, and about day
break they repaired to a stream of
water arid plunged entirely four or
seven times. The water washed
away their heaviness, and God
gave them comfort and joy in their
hearts. They then prayed to Him
to continue this joy in their hearts.
On returning to the house they put
their hands on the white ashes cov
ering the tals, and rubbed their
faces and brcasU.
The old men said that God cre
ated all tilings in six days, and
restod the seventh ; and therefore
all must rest every seventh day,
and meet at the town houses.
The principal men called the peo
ple together at an early hour. No
work was done except by women,
who brought forward the food. The
old men smoked, and the j'oung

Capt. C. H. Stoxe came in

with him regarding cattle, prices,

so far, and a much greater loss be

range in many places war burned
off last fall and the cattle drift

and larger creeks.ate out what grass
there was lelt, and the consequence
is that many cattle are not getting
enough grass in a week's grazing to
last them one da if it was a cold

The victuals were set on the ground i
in dishes, before the several seatc,
aod then the waiting women took
their seats with the other females.
The priest then arose and told the
people that God, the creator, had
given them food, and that, by par
taking of it, they would be re
freshed, and thon told them to cat.
The repast b-:ng ended, the four
toen women took away the dishes.
The leader of the dancers was then
called forward. He arranged the
company in single file ; the leader
followed by his wife, the "next prin
cipal man and his wife, and so on,
a man and his wife ; or, if a man
had no wife, he was followed by a
single female who was a near rela
tive, or of the same clan. This ar-
j rangement might form a number of
circles in the house. Being thus
arranged, while standing, the con
gregation was addressed by four
priests successively. They occu
pied the white middle scat. The
eldest arose and spoke, holding a
white wing of a fowl by the right
side of his face. Together with
various other instructions, he
charged the people to love and be
kind to one another. On conclud
ing, the first took his seat, and
handed the white wing to the one
next him, and so on, till all font
had spoken. The white wing was
then hung in a sacred place over
their heads. The dance then com-menc'-d.
Towards evening, all be
ing again seated, the same women
who had provided breakfast now
brought forward the dinnor (or sup
por) which was served as in the

spent in dancing- Xone must sleep
