Sheridan. Wy., July . Here, near the
spot where Custer fell, twenty-six years
after the heroic Seventh Cavalry was by a
ferocious and bverpowerlng force of yelling
Indians annihilated, was enacted a mlmlo
but lifelike Imitation of that massacre. To
day 1.E09 Crows and Cheyennes. hideous and
menacing in their war paint, swooped down
upon and surrounded 260 men from Fort Mc
Kenzie in the presence of thousands of
spectators, who thus saw the flrn genuine
reproduction of the slaughter of Custer and
Tho light of twenty-six years ago was
without witnesses and after the Ian yell
was heard and the last scalp had been
lifted there was no one of that gallant bind
of trooocrs left to tell the talc. The scene
of carnage has been described only In the
unwilling speech of the Indian oonquorar.

serving roses for a rose jar and pillow. Tho
roses are put in a covered Jar and left un
til they arc dried thoroughly. Some per
sons then sprinkle them with a few drops
of strong perfume, but tho faint perfume

In a great saving of labor, but also a sav

the books and money to and from the vault
Involved nearly an hour's work of at least
a dozen men. The elevator makes It possi

a few minutes. A truck is used to carry

day of rehearsal each Indian was searched.
This was the demand of the soldiers. They

John Philip Sonsa Introduces
"Blaze Away' a Patriotic Com

WRITTEN FOR THE SL'NDAT REPUBLIC.
John Philip Soua. the bandmaster, ever
alert to the whims and caprices of the
American publir. emphasizes his patriot
ism on the glorious Fourth at Atlantic City,
X. J., by the Introduction of a unique mu
sical number, entitled. "Ulaze Away." The
composition is a commingling of catchy
melodic movements portraying tho inci
dents of the battle of Manila Bay.
The "Rlaz Away" composition was in
spired by an American composer. Abo
Ilolzmann by name, who utilized the inci
dent of Dewey's triumph upon the battle
ship Olympla when the brava Captain Grid

"Well. boys. let's blaze away!" cams tha
quick rejoinder, and the guns poured their
deadly contents Into the enemy.
In the spirit of tha letter. Composer Holx
mann incorporated Into his musical com
position the deep meaning of these words.
The grumbling of the guns as they poured
shot and shell into the vitals of the Spanish
fleet, the cry of the sinking foe. the burst
ing of the shells, the wild wall of anguish
and despair from the writhing survivors,
commingled with the death-dealing projec
tiles as 'hey flew inta the holds and upon
the decks of the dismantled battleships, are
one and all graphically repeated in melodic
structure in "Blaze Away."
