An Indian Legend in Marble.
Sculptor Riordan, of Deadwood,
has completed the Sioux Indian
maiden statue upon which he. has
b?en working for some time. The
statue will be a part of the wo
man's exhibit bf this State at the
World's Fair. Mr. Riordan took
for his subject a Sioux maiden
named Minnehaha, in connection
with whose life and death there
is a romantic legend. Minnehaha
was the daughter of. Sitting Bear,
and her birthplace is credited to
the Black Hills, but the family
moved to a r?servation in the east
ern part of. the Territory (this
occurred in about 1870) near an
agency where United States troops
were, stationed. Minnehaha fell
desperately in love with Lieuten
ant Dupont, a tall,, noble, stately
looking fellow, and was unhappy
when out of his sight. Dupont
- was married and did not recipro
cate the love, and endeavored to
induce her to go away, but she
would not. She could not compre
hend the matrimonial laws of the
pale-faces. She requested to be
made his servant, that she could
always be near him to wait upon
him and to shield him from the
treachery of the Indians. Dupont
could not bear to see her sorrow
ful face, and thought if he wa3
out of the way she would soon for
get him and would dispel her
mad passion; so he applied to
be moved to Fort Laramie, Wy.,
and the request was granted. He
then quiety moved to his new
station. He had been there over
a year, and had entirely forgotten
Minnehaha, when one night he
was called to his office to see a
, Upon entering, he saw a female
standing beside the fire-place, her
head bowed, and upon her face was
an expression of great sorrow. He
stared in wonder at her for a mo
ment, when Minnehaha (for it was
she) said: "0 Dan, don't you re
member me any more? I walked
all the way from Dakota to die in
your presence. 0 Dan, don't drive
mo away. I've only got a few days
more to live. My heart broke when
you left me. Circumstances com
pelled me to live with my people,
but we had nothing in common ;
their way was not mine, and now
that I am dying I want to be buried
among the pale-faces, and I will
die happy to think that you will
some times come to my grave and
pity poor Minnehaha." Eleven
days later the soldier tenderly
laid-poor, broken-hearted Minne
haha under the sod on a hill-side
near the fort,- and a pine-tree was
planted at the head of the grave.
The tree still marks her resting
A Mother's Heart.
Once a youth loved a maiden.
She was as beautiful as a summer
day, but vain and cruel and heart
less. She fancied that she would
remain forever young and beauti
ful, if she could only obtain the
heart of the woman who, of all
others in the world loved her lover
best. And when one day the youth
told the maid of his 'passion, and
begged for her affection in return,
she answered, "I will love thee if
thou wilt fetch me the heart of
the woman who loves thee best in
the whole world." And the youth
fled from her in horror-for that
woman was his mother. But he
could not remain away from his
beloved, and so he returned in a
few days. Never had she seemed
so fair in his eyes. Ho fell on his
knees before her, and implored her
to have pity on him. And she
smiled, and leaning over on him.
And twined her white fingers in
his hair, whispering. "Fetch me
the heart of the woman who loves
thee best in* the world, and I am
thine." But he sprang to his feet,
and fled from the sight of her.
Yet he could have no peace with
out her. The thought of her beauty
haunted him day and night. When
he came again she twined her
white arms around him, and
looking up into his face, she mur
mured, "Hast thou brought me
the heart that will keep me always
young and beautiful, and make me
wholly thine?" But he untwined
the clinging arms, and rushed
from her presence. Yet he came
again, and grovelled before her
entreating her to have mercy upon
him. But she scorned him, and
said : "I do not believe in thee or
thy love. For why delayest thou
to bring me the gift I have begged
of thee? Depart from me I Though
thou mayest refuse to grant me
that which I desire, another will
do my will." Then the youth left
her and wandered about all dajt
Andwith the night, madness seized
upon him. He went to his mother's
house," and killed her .with one
blow, and tore the heart from out
her body. Then he sped with it
io the abode of his beloved. But
when he roached the door he stum
bled and fell. And as he arose1',
groaning with pain, tho heart in
his hand, the bleeding mother's
heart, queried anxiousy, "Hast
thou hurt thyself, my dear child?
