THE SEDALIA WEEKLY BAZOO, DECEMBER 26, 1893.
GIFT TO DRURY.
Liberal Donation by Judge
Melvin L. Gray, Who En
dows a Chair.
During the last few days it became
generally known that a Sl Louis ren
ileman had made a donation of $25,
H)0 to endow a chair at Drury college,
Springfield, Mo. The exact circum
stances and conditions of the gift have
not, however, been divulged until
now. The donor is Judge Melvin L.
Gray, who is at present in California
for the benefit of his health.
Some time last year Dr. D. K.
Pearson, M. D., of Chicago, offered
Drury college, through its trustees,
the stun of 8o0,000, provided the
friends of the college could add to it
S 150,000. When the financial string
ency came over the country Dr. l'car-
M)n consented to modify Ins oner uy
giving 25,000 as soon as the college
had raised S 5,000, provided tins was
done by January 1 1804. The col
lege trustees, of whom IJev. J. II.
(Joorge of the First Congregational
church, Delmar avenue, St. Louis, is
chairman, at once set to work to
secure the requisite sum. The S75,
000 was divided.the following amounts
being adjudged for the several sec
tions of the t:ite to raise :
Springfield, Mo., 825,1100; South
west Missouri, S5 ,000 ; Kansas City,
Mo., 10,000; St. Louis and East
According to the latest reports
Springfield has-pluckily succeeded in
raising its quota. Kansas City and
Southwest Missouri also send favor
able reports, while St Louis and East
Missouri have reached 328,000, leav
ing only 87,000 needed to insure the
first 825,000 from Dr. Pearson, which
will compleie the first 8100,000.
Judge Melvin L. Gray now offers
to give 825,000 to endow the chair of
geology at the college in memory of
his late wife who died last July.
Judge J ray asks that his 825,000 be
not used until the first 875.000, as
proposed by Dr. Pearson, shall have
been raised. Af there is no doubt
whatever that the necessary 87,000
will be forthcoming lefre January 1,
Judge Gray's generous offer will then
become available as the first install
ment of the second 875,000 needed to
insure for the college the second do
nation of 825,000 from Dr. Pearson.

SITTING BULL'S DEATH.
The Old Indian Full of Cunning
Up to the Time of His
Dr. Ii. V. Shufeldt, U. S. A., in
the Great Divide.
Omitting the peculiar train of cir
cumstances which led up to the ne
cessity of making a prisoner of Sitting
Bull, the incidents which surround
the history of his tragic death can be
briefly retold here. He had two log
cabins at Grand Kivcr, a large and a
small one oae upon cither side of a
wagon road that passed between them.
Ere the sun had risen on the day
which was to be the last in the career
of this remarkable Iudian, lie was
asleep in the larger of the two, when
there boldly appeared between them,
well mounted and armed, forty-three
determined men. Thev were mem
bers, for the most part, of the special
Sioux Indian police force from the
acencv, acting under orders of the
aireut. to make the arrest. One of
them, "Bullhead was a first lieuten
ant; three others, "bhavehead,
"Red Tomahawk" and "Little Eagle1
were first, second and fourth sergeants.
One hundred and fifty warriors and
women, more or less crazed with the
"ghost dance" idea made up at the
time the sleeping campofSittingBull
Ten eager men entered one cabin
and eight the other : impatiently the
remainder held the horses in the road
way. He was found and disarmed by
the party in the larger house. He
paid, "All right ; I will go with you ;
i will put on my clotnes, ana was
permitted to dispatch his wife across
the way to fetch those he desired to
wear. He was also allowed to direct
one of the police to repair to his corral
and bring him his favorite pony sad
dled, upon which he wished to accom
pany his captors to the agency. By
all these preliminaries the wily old In
dian meant only to gain time, and he
succeeded in his object. Before he
had completed dressing himself he
commenced soundly abusing the police
for disturbing him, and this he contin
ued as they took him without the cabin.
Finding there that his fcllowers
were congregated in numbers, he be
came still more excited. Coward that
he wa, this gave him courag' and
believing the tables to be completely
turned, he first refused to go and then
called upon his warriors to rescue
him. These latter the brave police
kept pressing back as well as they
could and endeavored by reasoning
with them to lie allowed to take away
their prisoner without molestation.
As the excitement came to its highest
pitch, Lieutenant Bullhead and Ser
gei) t Shavehead stood one upon either
side of Silting Bull, with Red Toma
hawk in his immediate rear to prevent
his escape in that direction. Mean
while, Crowfoot, Sitting Bull's son,
kept taunting his father
for allowing himself to lie
taken by a handful of men
in the midst of his own camp and out
numbering the enemy three to one.
This was more than Strike-tlie-Kettle
and Cateh-lhe-Bcar. two of the old
duel's most ardent adherents, could
withstand without striking a blow to
free him. They forced their way
through the excited crowd, and Catch
thc-Bcar fired aud shot Lieutenant
Bullhead in the right side, but before
'the latter fell to the ground he too
fired aud shot Sitting Bull in the left
side, and the latter, in falling, re
ceived a second shot in the right cheek.
Sergeant Shavehead was shot and mor
tally wounded byStrike-the-Kcttle. A
private of the police, "Alone Man,"
theu shot and killed Catch-the-Bear,
whereujion the fight became general
hand to hand at close quarters.
But by a display of indomitable
courage and superiority of discipline,
the police soon prevailed, and charged
their 150 savage antagonists into a
piece of woods near at hand. Return
ing, they gathered the dead and
wounded into one of Sitting Bull's
cabins, which they held until a body
of troops arrived from Fort Yates,
where the agency was a few hours
