How a Government Scout Was Saved From
the Hands of the Enemy.
At 4 o'clock in the afternoon the Pawnee
scouts, who were riding half a mile ahead
of the column, gave che signal to halt, and
pretty soon word carne back that they had
struck the fresh trail of a war party. Two
or three of them disappeared among the
foothills and were absent for an hour.
When they returned, it was to report that
the war party had gone into camp four
miles away and that the Indians had a
white man with them as captive. From
his dress they believed him to be a govern
ment scout, and from certain preparations
being made they felt certain he was going
to le put to the torture.
There were a hundred troopers of us,
while the Indians numbered only 40, but
they had gone into camp at the base of a
mountain spur from which they could note
the approach of anyone coming within a
mile, except it be to the rear. If we moved
as a body, they would mount and away lie
fore we were within rifle shot. It was final
ly decided that one of the Pawnees should
conduct Id dismounted troopers over the
mountain to approach thecamp in the rear,
while the main cnniinnnd was to move up
as near as possible without discovery and
be ready to dash at the camp when the sig
nal was given. It was (' o'clock before we
reached the crest of the mountain. It was
7 before we found the ravine which the
scout said would lead us right into the In
dian camp. While we had only alxmt a
mile to go, it had to be traveled in darkness
over a route which would have been ieril
ous by daylight, ami it was close upon 9
o'clock when we finally reached the fringe
of bushes growing at the mouth of the ra
vine. Kight before us and not 100 feet away
was the Indian camp. There were three
small tires burning, with a smell of roast
ing meat in th.e air, and from the move
ments of the redskins we concluded they
had just finished their supx-r, late as was
the hour. It whs some little time lefire
we made out the hite man, as he was
bound hand and foot and lying at full
length on the ground. Fresh fuel was
thrown on the fires, and ns the camp was
lighted up an Indian came forward to the
bushes and hacked down a sapling with
his tomahawk. While he cut and trimmed
he was within 2." feet of ns. Had we not
crept back when we saw him approaching
he would have run right over the line. The
stake was sharpened and driven into the
earth ut about the center of the camp, and
while two or three Indians were engaged
at that, four or five were collecting fuel.
Fortunately for us they gathered it toour
left, where a big tree had tv:i uprooted by
the wind. A cart load of dry limbs was
conveyed to the stake and piled up, and
then the feet of the captive were loosened,
and two Indians pulled him up. lie was
bareheaded, and the instant the flames
showed us his face we recognized him as
Charley Keats, the government scout at
tached to Fort Wallace. He had been cap
tured at daylight that morning about 30
"White man cold going to huild fire for
him make him warm!" said the chief of
the band as he pointed to the stake.
"Wauiih! You are a pack of skulking
cowards!" answered the scout as he drew
himself up. "Burn and le hanged! I've
got the scalplocks of six of your best men,
and you won't be very much ahead of
A dozen warriors ran in upon him with
raised tomahawks, but the chief shouted
for them to hold m and ordered the pris
oner led to the stake. A rawhide lariat,
which had len soaking in the spring, was
then brought along, and after the scout had
been striped of his clothing he was made
fast to the stake by the lariat being passed
around his waist, lie thus had the freedom
of his arms and legs, and the fuel was so
arranged that it did not come within three
feet of the stake. While they were thus
preparing him for torture we saw him
glance about as if he might have a faint
hope of rescue, but presently despair came
to his heart, and he turned to the chief and
"You are a squaw, and these people
around you are children whom I could
drive with a stick! There isn't a real war
rior in your tribe. I have made t he whole
cans of vou run like rabbits!"
There was a rush for him a-ain, but the !
chief drove the warriors hack, and stand
ing with folded arms before the scout he
"We know you. You are a brave man.
You speak truly when you say you have
the scalps of some of our warriors. But
we shall see how it will be with you when
we prick you with knives when we shoot
powder into your flesh when we thrust
in these splinters and light them when
we cut off ears and nose and tongue! After
that we will light the tire and sit down
and listen to your cries!"
"If you hear one yell from me, you may
tell every white man in this country that I
was a baby!"' shouted the scout. "Go ahead
with your picnic! A feller can't die but
once, and I've been prepared for this sort of
death for the last five years!"
There was a yell from every Indian as he
ceased speaking, but the crowd parted
right and left, and the chief drew his knife
and stood surveying the captive. We gtt
the word at this moment to open fire, and
our 10 carbines and the scout's rifle rang
out as one. We rose up with a cheer and
fired again and again, but after the third
volley there was no longer anything iu
sight to fire at. The Indian ponies, grazing
a little distance 'away, dashed olT in a
drove, and even- warrior who could move
dashed at the side of the mountain and dis
appeared among the rocks and thickets.
The command came galloping up, but
there was no work for it. On the ground
lay seven dead and two wounded Indians,
with 10 or 12 rifles and all their blankets
scattered alxmt. Seven of the 11 men had
aimed at the chief iu the first fire, and seven
bullets had struck him. We tu rued to the
6Cout as the fight was over, and he Id out
his hand and said:
"Howdy, boys! Some of you cut this
thing and let me get a drink of water at
the spring! Sort of a close shave, and it
has made me rather thirsty!''
Dangerous Colors Used by the Koinaus.
One of the most famous preparations
among the ancient Romans for the com
plexion was that of poppiea, made of rye
or barley Hour mixed with oil, which was
washed off with milk. It should be re
marked here that this preparation was
rather for the preservation and restoration
of the skin, seriously affected by the colors
of various kinds applied when the Koman
ladies were iu society. The white lead used
to deaden the complexion when it was too
fresh was always dangerous, and minium,
or red lead, equally so. Antimony was in
common use. To give freshness of color
various substances were employed, among
the rest a dye prepared from seaweed. Ia
addition to the red and white applied to
the face, to imitate what was supposed to
be the natural hues of the complexion, a
certain bine was added to show the delicate
tracery of the veins. San Francisco Chronicle.
