Yes. Faithis a goodly anchor;
AVhcn skies are sweet as a psalm.
At the bnws it tolls so stalwart
In bluff broad-shouldered calm.
And when, over breakers te loewani
Tho tattered surges are hurled.
It may koep onr head to the tempest.
With its crip oirtho base of the world.
But, after the ibipwrcck. tell me
What help in its iron thews.
Still true to the broken hawser.
Deep down among sea-weed and oozo?
In the breakine rulfs of forrow.
When the helpless feet stretch out.
And find in tho deeps of darkness
No footing so solid as doubt.
Then better one spar of memory.
One broken plank of the past,
Thtt our human heart may enne to.
Though hopelesi of rhoro at last !
To the spirit Us splendid conjectures,
To tho flesh its sweet despair.
Its tears o'er the thin-worn locket
With its beauty of deathless hair !
Immortal 1 I foal it and know it;
Wh doubts it of such as she ?
But that is the pane's very secret
Immortal away from me!
Thore is a narrow ridse in tho graveyard
Would scarco stay a child in his race ;
Hut to me and my thought it is wider
Than the star-sown vague of space.
Your lecie. my friend, is perfect.
Your morula most Hrpftrilv true.
But the earth that stops my darling's ears
winces mine insensatetoo.

THE MOXARCHS OF

limn tu itin Kimsns l'nclllc Itnil-
At one o'clock the (rain wa3 in motion,
a'ni, rapiiilv moving westward, soon leu
Fort Hav, far behind. Every one was
n the lookout for the first oign9 of
thsbulfilo. whoe appearance was anxious
ly awaited. Wbrn about thirty miles west
ot Hays, the cry litillaloes, bulialoesr
was heard, and amid a general ruh for
platform and window, and the exclama-
lions that aroe from every side, great num
Imrs of b'igc, hairy monsters were seen gal
loping .villi unwieblv movement from the
iine of the track on either xide. As the
trAin rolled by they strung out here and
there, many of them within fifty yards'
dtxtance. Ureat was the excitement on
the train. Madly impatient, yelli-g and
shouting, the men rmhed for the platform
and bagge car. got in one another's way,
discharged their weipons here and there at
random. Not a fe narrowly escaped
being victims to imprudent and headlong
carelea-.nes. The side entrances to the
baggage cir were blocked up, nnd within
thus- unable to obtain a shot were franti
cally stamping and tugging at thoe in front
of them Men who had never bsfore held
a rills in their band-t discharged their
arm-, not thiuking of taking aim. Some
who lisd forgotten tlis instructions about
loading were ridiculou objec's of despair,
as tliey r.tooil, bewildered, after having
vainly tried to thrust in their cartridges at
the muzzle. Lslan-J, with uomiial alacri
ty, clamb-red to the r. -if .f one of the cart
and thence blaz.d liirmJe'sly awav with a
pock revolver at il" fleeing iitrd. Seve
tal crowded forward ii.to the Under and
from thence kept up a steady fire. Moran
was &ca wrangling about the possession of
a buililo who, unharmed, was making
good timt over tliu plain, with His Honor,
Judge Ssrcenev, and offering to bet fonr
dollars and a Ji.ilf that it was his bullet,
not that ot the Judge, which had brought
down the gati;i-.
Meantime, many a gigantic monster was
ten to falter, while those ytt untouched
galloped rapidly aay. The rattling of
(Millets was heard liom window and plat
form, and the screams of the ladies were
drownrd in the yelling and shooting of the
men. The train was soon slacked up and
many, not waiting for it to stop, leaped out
.i.id give rhao So deceptive wa3 the dis
tance that the pursued did not peem to
gaio, and it was t.ot until many an one had
given out from sheer exhaustion that it was
seen to attempt to overtake was fruitless.
Siill the firing vent on, and bullets flew in
every direction. Some few took eiTeet ; the
most failed. The party were soon Bcstierea
over the plain, heedless of the admonition
they had received to beware of Indians,
and intent only upon the priori. It was
llidicrcus to witness the excitement, and
yet the beholder and hunter shared alike
the common feeling. The burly figures of
Atmore and Day were beheld running
nimbly for a while after the fugitive ani
mato, and Ihen gradually faltering, until,
after having vainly chased for a mile or
more, yielding to fatigue and excess of
avoirdupois, and sinking, utterly fagged,
upon the carpet-like plain, gazing mourn
fully upon the rapidly disappearing herd.
Lighter weights kept up a longer chase,
and only ccaedjur3uit when out of sight
in deprsio.H of the seemingly level
To the Utiihward wa3 seen a vast collec
tion of animal., covering several miles of
ground, feeding peacefully, heedless of the
tiling whose sound did not reach them.
'iWard thi herd several of the wounded
animals mad-- their way. They were pur
HUttl by others of the party, and one of
tbem ftll aboat a mile from the train, hav
ing received a well sent ball. Within a
lew momenta the body was surroundoi by
a score of excited men, who with axe and
Unite soon bad the pjarters, tongue, pkin,
tail and horns separated. With the they
returned, and then set out for fresh victor
ies. Tho train meanwhile moved oil' with
a lwrtion ol" the partv in search of fresh
hesdi further on. From (the summit of
oae of the embankments thrown up by the
ido of the tra k the sight was a grand one.
So clear was the atmosphere, and so de
ceptive the prospect from the abiecce of
tree or lireaK in llic sunace wun wmcn 10
measure the distance, that the iramenc
herd fcediug to the noilhward on the slopes
of the bltifl' seemed scarcely a mile off,
tbuugh four times that distance away.
bevcr 1 uf the party were anxious to get a
shot al tbia drove, but. beuiz unable to
n.ruuade those who had already had
Ti.onch t f cbaiinc buffaloes on foil to ac

when dryly told by Curry that if they

Curious Intllnn Ceremonials A Bril
liant Display or Ughls How tho
Squnns Trcrc Dressed The Jin-tic
mill tho Dances.
A correspondent of tho Milwaukee
Wisconsin furnishes tho following de.
Scription of the Indian ceremony of mak
ing a "Medicine Man."
Somo three hundred Winncb.iMeg had
a great medicine dance a day or tiro sinco
near Tunnel City. It was the largest
gathering they have had for years. Tho
danco commenced at sundown on Mon
day evening, and lasted until the evening
following. Desiring to bo "in" at this
most wonderful and mysterious Indian
gathering, I reached the Tunnel about
ten o clock. Y ith tho Iriondly aid ol a
lantern and a hand-car, somo boys of ns
took the back track for a mile west We
then struck the Indian trail a mile orj-so
through tho woods to the north, where
we found tho grand encampment. Tho
I night, was dark, but tho camp-fires of
sixty wigwams lit up the forest far and
I wide. JNcarthe center ol the encamp
ment was the great medicine wigwam.
It was brilliantly illminated, and tho
orgies were in full blast As I ap
proached tho wigwam tho sentinel met
me at the closed entrance. "Inkah-do-quatch-a,"
said he: "no go in." This was
a stumperand disappointment; but I was
prepared for emergencies. I recognised
tho sentinel in his blue military coat It
was Nau-he.gah, one of tho six Winne
bago braves who were in Sherman's
great march. I had a small flask and a
few stamps in my pocket In a briefspacc
1 was snugly cornered inside. The nicdi
cino danco among the Indians is purely
religious in its origin. None but those
who have been initiated are allowed to
join it lo bo a medicine-man or meuis
cmo-woman is tho great thing among tho
Wmnebagoes. Gnly the better class can
afford it It costs from $5 to $20 to ba
initiated, that is to make the presents and
provide for the dinner and feast All the
Indians last during the day preceding.
ihc great wigwam is open only to modi-cine-men
and women. Sentinels are
posted outside. At dark the light are
struck inside and the unearthly pow-wow
of rattlc3, drums, chants and creeches
commences. From tho corner by tho
tho doorway could bo seen the whole
, , ... . mi
iptenaor 01 mo great wigwam, ine
structure was over a hundrtd feet long
The ground had been shaved clear of
grass and was smooth as a floor. The
bides were thickly bedded with fresh fern
leaves. A bright row of lights sot on
poles gleamed down tho center, whilo n
blazing wood lire shono up irom tho
father end. The Indians, about half and
haifas to sexes, were closely squatted
along tho whole length on cither side.
Haifa dozen wens beating drums, shaking
rattles and singing in low gutturals
around tho wood lire. Tho dress of the
medicine squaws would put Mada-M D'
morest to shame. Many were rig : ut
like princesses. No two were a'ike.
Ev.-rv one had on a new calico skirt;
petticoat, fancy blanket, sash, leggin3 and
mocassins, sot off with every possible
trick offiaery and ribbons. Beads, rings,
trinkets, wristlets, bracelets and earbolts
glistened in profusion. Little bells jingled
Irom their Jegcms. Jlonths had been
spent in trimming off their petticoats with
bitsjof silkand bead-work. Every cheek
was painted with the brightest vcrmillion
and yollow, and crossed or circled with a
line of blue.
The men were less ''got up." Many
had showy head-gear, and some had club"
orate breceh-clouts stitched with beads.
A dozen or moro had borrowed coats
from white folks for the occasion. Old i
"Four Deers," from Portage, who got up
the dance, had on a yellow scan and a
thick black silk shirt His bead was
girdled with long, red deer's hair, hung
with ribbons, leathers, caglo quills and
snake rattles. Little Fish had the lower
half of his face painted blue. Nearly nil
had stripes of .red across their face, dot
ted with yellow and blue. All the young
bucks were lavish with paint and feathers,
while the two old chiefs, "Dandy" and
"Carimoone, preserved thef every day
plainness. Hut the most noticeablo fca
turc of all was their marvelous medicine
bags. These were genorally of otter
skins, made up whole. Mo3t of them
were large and of the finest fur, lined
with Bilk and bead-work The mouths of
each skin were hung with scarlet feathers.
They were carried in front like muffs,
with tho tails reaching to tho ground.
No profane hands are allowed to touch
them. They contain the wonderful mod-,
icine, and are held and guarded as sacred.
Tho ceremonies during the night were as
solemn as a Quaker prayer meeting.
Speeches, marches, songs and all kinds
of mystical and musical dingdongs were
kept up until sunrise. The different
songs had different ceremonies attending.
Indians, bv onos and by twos, filed up
and down the long lines, swinging their
bauds to each Indian as they passed.
A low grunt was beard with each motion
of the band. Presently tho old medicine
man arose, and for ten minutes followed
a rapid, jerking "talk" with the Great
pint I could gather only the unit ol
their talk. They msntion the names of
Indians who have died since their last
medicino danco, they reconnt the every
day events of their life, which can never
happen to them again on earth, they
then picture their occupations in the
snirit Land, killing their foe or chasing
the game over tho happy hunting grounds.
Thcso ghostly recitals arc listened to with
tho stillness ol death, r allowing their
table" conies a chant or song, attended
bv rattle or drum. The old men lead off
for a strain or two, when the squaws join
in tho refrain. No words can describe
these wild harmonies of tho "forest maid
ens." Thoy seem to havo learned their
music from tho muskrats in their cabins
and the blackbirds in their fields. The
tobacco song is one of the most impres
sive. As mo teautng meuicino man
walks around tho wood fire, dropping
handfuls of tobacco into the name?, the
whole camp join the chorus
run-ne-nah-ho ! Tan-no-nah-ho !
fan-ne-nah hahl Tan-no-nah-hah
Meanwhile drums and rattles keep up a
din loud cnouch to frighten the Orcnt
Spirit out of his wits. The whiskey, or
Padganehati song tatccs mo morc pouuc'
tivc turn, and a sip from tho passing bot
tie makes a'l right with thospirits al o.'o
nnd below. Alter tho tobaeco song ;s
finished (ho nonce I'irto is lighted and
nasses the roun;ls. each one taking a whiff
or two. and giving a grunt of satisfaction
in return The dancing proper set in
about daylight, and was alternated wun
chants, speeches and marches as belore
When the dancing commenced the sides
of the creat wigwams wero thrown out
wards, thus affording open views to all.
Sometimes fifty, sometimes a hundred
ioincd in the dance up and down the
wiewnm The sitnaws havo a sort
sidelong hop motion, with both feet to
getner , whilo the men jerk up one leg at
a time, reminding one ot the turkey in the
picture dancing on hot ashes. Tho raot
exciting ceremony commenced about
noon and lasted an hour. I shall not a'
tempt to describe it. Suffieo it to say tho
"victim" of the occasion was the son cf
old "Four Deers," a tall, long-haired,
dull-eyed gawky of twenty summers.
Old "Four Deers" had brought in pre
gents of blanket?, calico, nr.d petticoat
cloth, worth over a hundred and twenty
dollars Alter a uoai tu uiuumi-i
n,iinr man was seated on a pilo of blan
kets at tho open end of the wigwam. Tho
great mcdictno clitcl men came ieuriiii
down like a mad buffalo from the oppo

and carried out. In a great many cases a sin

whole families havo been cured by single bot

the disease has been checked, more epecially
In difficult and long standing cates. Usually,
