however, that her Miluioii lind a chief

jthoiigh the Indians did not know how
I to swear when the white man crime,
I they soon learned to sw ear, and had
isutlicieut words in their laiiiruago for

use the Indian word O.sh (my Father)
for Creator etc., and the eariy mission
aries, when nddrcsdiig the Indian, used
Gosh (your Father). Tuo Indian soon
saw that that was thu necessary word
for profanity, and adopted iu (Josh i
iu uso lo some extent now, and perhaps
somo pious peoplo who say 'guh' aro
not aware that It is downright swear
ing in tho Indian language.
