Rags of all sort are trimmed with
black jet and umbrella handles are

In the vicinity of Devil's Hollow,
several miles east of Quapaw, Okla.,
there Is a wigwam-shaped church
building located miles from any white
1ma's habitation, and a long distance
from the nearest Indian domicile,
where the Quapaw full-blooded Indians
congregate regularly to worship the
Great Spirit in silence. They sit about
a tiny Jire that has been built on a
stone base in the middle of the dirt
floor, from Saturday night at sundown
till Sunday noon, fasting and praying,
but never speaking a word.
A feature of their church meetings
is the feast that follows the fast and
religious rites. The meal Is served
in a little mess house nearby, and
when the services are over the squaws,
who have slipp'ed out a few hours be
fore the time to close, are ready with
the dinner and all sit down to partake
