HOLD LAST SUN DANCE
IARCH OF CIVILIZATION PUSHING
OLD CeREMONIES ASIDE.
Indians to Give Up the Rlte-t Was One
of the Most Importat and Interesting
Events in Their Hiltory-Description
of the Barbaric Ceremonies.
The last sun dance that will ever be
held in the Indian country south of
Wichita, Kan., took place recently and
tWas attended by thousands of Indians.
It was one of the most important and
interesting events of Indian history
that has occurred in a great many
years. Following closely, as it does,
the ancient custom of initiating an In
ilan chief of the Sac and Foxes, it re
minds the students of Indian lore that
the day of the redskin is passing away.
The sun dance is one of much cere
mony and around which clusters much
of the ancient religion of the redskins.
It was held this time on the banks of
Beaver creek, in the Osage nation, and
the Osages were the ones who took
charge of the dance. It commenleed
early one morning and lasted just d
week. During that time the dancers
took no food except some of the sacred
herbs and decoctions fixed up by the
The sun dance is one of the few* im
portant Indian dances i'here the
squaws are allowed to take'part, but
in this dance they played a leading
Rainwater, a big Osage- medicine
man, acted as master of ceremonies.
He was assisted by Pull Many Horses,
a Ponca brave, who had passed
through many wars and was covered
with scars. The Indians who came
brought their tents with them and
stretched them in a circle around the
lancing grounds and left an open space
about one mile square in the center.
The ground was worn off smooth and
the grass-that is what little was left
was. turned brown from being
wallowed upon by the visitors. All of
the Indians who came seemed to have
made preparations to stay a long while,
having brought most of their clothes
with them. They did not wear any of
It except a breechcloth and the squaws
wore blankets. It was learned later
that they were going to sacrifice this
clothing to the Great Spirit as a last
offering for peace.
The first night in camp the Indians
,id nothing but ride around and sing
war, love and religious songs. The
young men were out making love to
the dusky squaws, while the old folks
were within their tepee making loud
prayers for the repose of their soul in
the great chasm where the Indian soul
is supposed to roam after death. From
the tepees came the sounds of doleful
praying and shouts of revelry. The In
dian camp was awake most of the
night despite the fact that on the mor
row they were to commence a great
ceremony, which must be done right or
not at all.
The Indians arose early and hun
dreds of them took plunges in the
stream which ran placidly at the foot
of the camp. Men and women went
swimming together and the medicine
men stood on the banks of the stream
and sold thle sacred soap for any price
they could get. Nothwithstanding the
fact that they were assembled to par
ticipate in a great religious ceremony,
the Indian's idea of making money,
which is very queer, hit upon this
scheme of enrichment. As the doctors
had ordered all of the dancers to make
themselves pure the sale was naturally
great. About noon, the master of cere
monies, mounted upon a plunging mus
tang. rode over the camp and an
nounced that the dance was soon to
commence. The young men arose and
hustled off to their tepees, appearing in
half an hour clad in gay colors, with
many jingling bells upon. their ankles
and beads around their necks. Their
heads were all decorated with red
feathers and their faces painted in
white, blue and green.
The paint was put on in round spots
and they wore a sheet tied around the
waist. The upper part of the body was
bare and it was also painted in many
colors. Each one of the medicine chiefs
held a small whistle and the young
warriors carried tomahawks. They
were all singing some weird war song
They all assembled in a bunch in the
center of the dancing grounds, ,where
Rainwater del;vered an address of wel
come and told them of the sacredness
of the sun dance. He impressed on the
young men that this was to be the last
sun dance they would ever witness and
that they must take close heed ofevery
thing so they would dance It when
they went into the other world. Some
of the old men who had taken part it
the dance many times were so excited
over the address that they commenced
to make signs to the sun, tWen in the
center of the sky, and started their
weird motions without waiting for the
speaker to finish.
The movements of thedance areabout
the same as those in any other Indian
dance-the dancers jumping straight
up and down and moving around in a
circle. Sometimes they would catch
hold of hands, but in the excitement
every Indian went for himself, some
times leaping as high as four or five
feet in the air. The song was a verse
especially composed for the occasion
and it appealed to the Great Spirit that
the Indians should be made never to
forget the antics of this dance even if
they were never allowed to take part
In it again. The dance was kept up
this way until dark and every mem
ber of the two or three tribes present
took a whirl in the dizzy and dusty
circle. Toward night it looked as
though it would rain, so the medicine
men were called upon to stop it. Two
or three of them went into a sweat
lodge and were supposed to be praying.
When they came out each one held a
white bag of something in his hands
which they threw at the sun. The
clouds at once disappeared and no ral
fell. This was considered as a good
sign--that the Great Spirit was flth
them in the meeting, so they concluded
to dance all night without stopping.
This they did and about daylight so
many were worn out that they dropped
exhausted in the ring. The dance was
resumed and kept up as long at one
time as they could stand unt4 Satur
During the afternoon many of the
dancers brought offerings to the sun
and piled in a heap on the river bank.
These offerings consisted of old clothes
and Jewelry. Some were devoted
enough to sacrifice their fattest dogs
which they brought--dead, of course. At
night after a long speech by many of
the prominent Indians a, big bonfire
was built of these offerings, and amid
the wild yells of the redskins their sun
dance was concluded. There are many
secret things to the dance which are
iot performed in the open, and every
peainted redskin has some sacred place
lI the circle, but the real inwardsem
of the occasion cannot be made plain
to the white visitor. However, as the
Indians present said, the onward
march of civilization has crowded out
another of their old customs, and this
is the last sun dance that will ever
be held in Oklahoma Or indian Terri

Physically, he is poorly developed,

Centuries of oppression have stamped

vigor, however, is unimpaired and
probably on the whole is superior to
his neighbor's. He is a city dweller
and betrays an inherent dislike for

is physical make-up is what one

to longevity, the Jew is probably the
longest lived of any race of people now
In existence. His tenacity of life is
remarkable. In spite of the social con
ditions which surround the mass of
the Hebrew population the world over
and especially in the large cities of
America, where they form a large per
centage of the population, the death
rate among the Jewish inhabitants is
but little over half of that of the aver
age American population. Prof. Wil
liam Ripley, in his papers on the ra
cial geography of Europe in the Popu
lar Science Monthly, discusses this
question very ably and very fully. He
states that itf two groups of 100 infants
each, one Jewish, and one of average
American parentage, be born upon the
same day, one-half the Americans will
die within forty-seven years, while the
first half of the Jews will not succumb
to disease before the expiration of
seventy-one years. According to Lom-n

This is not wholly true, however. They
show an abnormally small proportion
of deaths from consumption and pneu

largest proportion of deaths among
the American population. Prof. Rip
ley ascribes their immunity for this,
as well as from some other diseases,
to the excellent system of meat in

Hoffman says that in London as much
as one-third the meats offered for sale

NEWSPAPERS IN RUSSIA,
Journals Are Permitted to Print Only
News Authorized by the Censor
The Russian government has gone
into the business of publishing news
itself, has established a regular press
bureau for the circulation of news and
supplies all home newspapers now
ita foreign news. State Councilor
Naratoff is the editor-in-chief of
news on questions of current politics.
Should a Russian newspaper dare
to "handle" news in a manner
different from that in which it is
furnished the censor takes hold
at once. And it Is a pretty hard
case for which the censor can
not find a handle, as was shown by
Count Uvaroff when he found an ex
cuse for warning an editor enemy by
citing his eulogy of Pushkin. The edi
tor had said nothing against the gov
ernment implying disrespect or criti
cism of the government in his article,
but Uvaroff found that Pushkin "had
no position in the government service,
was neither a captain nor a head of
department and was only a verse
-riter." So the editor was "warned,"
and a warning is a serious thing, for
it means that the next offense may be
punished summarily by the suppres
sion of the paper. Thus one paper, the
Gazeta Gatzuka, was warned once and
then supressed for "want of respect
for the nobility." The motive of a
minister's refusal to authorize a new
publication are sometimes curious
enough. For instance, not more than
three years ago the permission to pub
lish a private newspaper In Tamboy
was refused on the ground that the
necessity for such a publication there
"has not ripened yet," and that "the
local official paper is quite efficient for
the place." Sometimes a refusal is
based on the fact that the local censor,
having various other official duties has
work enough without a new paper.-

The ordinary every-da life of most of our women is a
ceaseless treadmill of work.
How much harder the daily tasks become when some
derangement of the female organs makes every movement
painful and keeps the nervous system all unstrung I
One day she is wretched and utterly miserable ; in a day
or two she is better and laughs at her fears, thinking there
is nothing much the matter after all; but before night the
deadly backache reappears the limbs tremble, the lips twitch
-it seems as though all the imps of Satan were clutching
her vitals; she goes to pieces and is flat on her back.
No woman ought to arrive at this terrible state of
misery, because these symptoms are a sure forerunner of
womb troubles. She must remember that Lydia E. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound is almost an infallible cure
for all female ills, such as irregularity of periods, which cause
weak stomach, sick headache, etc., displacements and in
flammation of the womb, or any of the multitudes of ill
nesses which beset the female organism.

was compelled to give up and go to bed. On break

and medicines alone and try your remedies. Before
the first bottle was gone I felt the effects of it.
Three bottles of Lydia E. PinkhaI 's Vegetable

me more good than all the doctors' treatments and
