PREPARING FOR THE GRAND POW-WOW.
While the imperial party were at
dinner pieparations were being made
lor the great Indian war-uatce,
which is introduced to illustrate one
of the curious customs of tbe red
men. The Indians have a great var
iety ci dences, each dance having its
distinct significance. The one cho-
sen for this occasion wa the war-
dance. D 'consists chiefly in each
warrior ar sing an l recounting the his
torv f t his exploit, at tbe same time
dancipg in the circle formed by his
bearers, and keeping time to monot-
onous musican", who beat awry on a
kind of a drum, whiie he extols him-
self in bis native language. An im-
mense log fire was built between the
row of tents and the flag-pole in front
Meanwhile all the young
were busy in llieir lodge
pai iticg their faces afresh and decK
leg themselves with ornaments.
The several bands of Sioux which
Spotted Tail had collected were camp
ed near at band, on the other side of
Red Willow Creek, and the most
successful of the warriors and sever
al of the eqnaws came across to par
ticipate in and witness tbe Indian

THE IMPERIAL PARTY AND SHERIDAN
The Grand Duke and suite, wilh
General Sheridan and stair,
and all the other tfiicers in camp,
were present and noted and commen
ted on tbe incidents which attracted
their attenlion as the braves describ
ed the wondeiful deeds thry had per
formed when on tbe war path. At
the conclusion nf each recitation tbe
squaws signineii their approval,
wUub was doro in a elm l tone of
voice. One cf the interpreters sjood
near the Grand Duke and explaiaed
to him t'ie salient points ii each red
man's speech, and also answered all
the questions which Alexis asked.
His Imperial Ilighncrs was deeply
interested in what transpired.
THE LOVELY MISS SPOTTED TAIL.
One of the incidents of the even
ing was tha'i in which the daughter
of Spotted Tail took a silent but
prominent part. She is a modest
insiden of tome sixteen summers, and
that she Is comely is clear from the
lact that some of the members of cur
party were evidently more interest
ed in her than iu the sic quinary
stories cf the warriors who were
shouting and stamping in the cir

she ngariled tl.tm with ecnceial
favor. At first che seemed to show
the coyEcss characteristic of her sex,
and if the tosr tints that bloomed
so brightly on her cheeks were not
natural, there are nisny maidens and
married women and men among the
pale faces,' as the Indians call our
people ladies who adorn the high
est circle of civilized life who will
appreciate Miss Spotted Tail's pro
cess for improving her coeepifxion.
COMPARISONS ARE ODIOUS.
Either they strive to civilize a
savage custom, or she has attained
proficiency in one of the fine arts of
Christian civilization. LaKe some
of her civilized sex she was not
averse to admiration. Presents from
her admirers soon began to flow in
upon her. Some presented confec
tionery and fruits, and others such
trinkets as they could procure at short
