Kntltli tl to Pnrplu Fees.
The case of Vernon county ngainst
ex-Kecorder Andrew .1. King, taken on
change of venne to Hates c-.iinty, has
been decided by Judge James II. Lay
In favo.' of the defendant. The suit
was for $l.-i:3 surplus fees, which the .
county claimed should have been paid :
into its treasury for the year 1!!)0. The '
matter was left to Referee Casey, of ,
Henry county, who reported the above '
amount due the county. Mr. King '
took the position that he was entitled j
to the surplus for deputy hire. The t
county, however, claimed that he had i
forfeited the right to deputy hire, as '
he hail neglected to havo the salary of
nn assistant fixed by the county court !
The defendant had paid into tlie county i
treasury S1.200, which represented the
surplus which he had retained during
former years. The county took an ap

made the driver, Sam Allman, takeout
his knife nnd cut tho strap. They se-1
cured two valuable registered pack-1
ages. They then threw the mail and
bags in the coach and told the driver
to move on, and not look back, which j
he did not do until lie reached Pcirce ,

CHILDREN OF NATURE.
Rccol'ectlont rf ttio Wild Life by an Edu
cated Slonx Inil ati.
Our wanderings from place to place
a Horded us many pleasant experiences
as well as many hardships and misfor
tunes. We had several narrow escapes
from death. There were times of
plenty and times of searcit3 There
were seasons of happiness and seasons
of sadness. In savage life tlie early
spring is the most trying time, and
almost ail the famines occurred at this
period of tho year.
The Indians are a patient and clan
nish people; their love for one anothfir
is stronger than that of any civilized
people I know. If this were not so, I
believe there would have been trib -s
of cannibals among them. White people
have been known to kill and eat their
companions in preference to starving,
but Indians never! In times of famine
the adults often denied themselves a
fair meal in order to make the food
last as long as possiblo for the chil
dren, who were notable to bear hunger
us well as tho old. As a people they
can go without food much longer than
any other nation.
I once passed through one of these
hard springs when we had nothing to
eat for several days. I well remember
the six femall birds which constituted
tho breakfast for six families one
morning; and then we had no dinner
or supper to follow it Whatarclii.f
that was to mo although I had only a
small wing of a small bird for my
share! Soon after this we came to a
region where buffaloes wero plenty,
and wo foou forgot all the suffering
we had just gone through.
Such was the Indians' wild life!
When gume was plenty and the sun
shono gracioualy upon them they for
got the bitter experiences of the win
tor before. Little preparation was
made for the future. They are chil
dren ot nature and occasionally she
whips them with the lashes of experi-
I ence; yet they are forgetful and care-
less. Much of thsir suffering- mi?ht
have been prevented by a little calcu
lation. During the summer, when na
ture was at her best and provided
abundantly for tho savage, it seemed
to ine that no life was happier than his!
Food was free lodging free every
thing free! All were alike rich in the
u miner; and, again all were alike poor
iu the winter and early spring. Their
diseases were fewer, and were not so
destructive as now, and the Indians'
health was generally good. St. Nicho-
