Indians. The last one of these gath
d's erings among the Sioux on the Rose- B
bud reservation, called by them the I
Sseason of sports, was notable for a t
e?" number of interesting features.
-he The season of sports lasted three t'
the days. The morning of the first day '
opened in the usual way by a grand P
c charge of Sioux at daybreak. This 01
tters was participated in by about 200 di
fied Sioux warriors. All were on horse
mail back and dressed strictly in war cos
tume, consisting of a breech-clout, the
Ina usual bonnet made of eagle features, s
o a with a double row of feathers ex
" tending down 'the back to below the
waist, while the horses had feathers to
in their tails and foretops and were te
painted in different colors. The war- in
riors were also painted in all the col
Son ors of the rainbow. es
The Indians who participated in the la
ces charge cougregated about half a mile sic
rth from camp in the deep ravine through are
r, which flows Ponca Creek, and were fir
ay, concealed from tha view of the war- of
pa- riors left in camp. The latter were
ry- supposed to represent Pawnee In- le]
dea dians-the oldtime enemies of the b01
of Sioux. The camp consisted of 13 els
d lodges, which were built in a ring tur
f shape, so as to encircle about 800 acres tat
Sof ground on the big plateau. In the
l centre of the circle of tepees was a pre

Warriors, those too feeble to partici- e
es pate actively in the sports, spent most sea
of their time at the refreshment lodge, mo
eating and relating experiences of the ni
past, when they were on the warpath shit
against the whites or other Indian I
tribes. Just as the day dawned on ests
i the eastern horizon the 200 warriors, chat
edwith bood-curdling warwhoops and Te
horses at full speed, rode into camp land
and for fifteen minutes made pande- aris
monium. The firing of guns and the
constant war cry of the excited war- pate
riors mingling with the wailing of the cane
Swomen was sufficient to chill the blood fore
Sof any one not accustomed to such sT
scenes. After about fifteen minutes c
of fierce mock fighting, in which five cont
of the Pawnees were supposed to be spac
