Oglala Sionx Indian Couple Weds at
Chadron, Neb., Dec. 11.—(Special.)
—Two full-blood Oglala Sioux In
dians from Allen, S. D., were mar
ried by County Judge Ernest M. Slat
tery in his office Saturday afternoon,
in the prsence of many interested wit
nesses. They were Joe Whirlwind
Horse and Bertha Bissonette. Ap
parently they appreciated the solemn
ity of the occasion and behaved with
a decorum that might well be emu
lated by their white neighbors. This
was particularly noticeable in their
responses to congratulations*—Oma
ha Bee.

VBalt Utaton
If you're complaining of your task and sighing
as you labor, I greatly fear you'll never bask in
easy street, my neigbor. The world is seeking
willing hands to keep its pulleys turning it will
pass up the gent who stands, for soft employ
ment yearning. The man who drops away be
hind, who cannot make the riffle, keeps talking
of the dreary grind, and all that sort of piffle.
The man who gayly does his work, pretend
ing to enjoy it, who, be his tool a spade or dirt,
will cheerfully employ it, who, though he may
be feeling dead, will never make confession, is
he who marches at the head of industry's pro
cession. The man who grunts whene'er he
swings his fountain pen or hammer, who never
smiles and never sings, or make a cheerful clam
or, who never will consent to hump until he sees
his wages, will land some morning at the dump,
and there'll he stay for ages.
Baring the fact that the bride is a
quarter blood and a native of Pine
Ridge instead of Allen, the above
notice is correct. Both have been
students of this school and later, em
ployees here, and the best wishes of
the school is extended to them.
Appropriation Bill
The first of the annual supply bills
to complete the first lap of its jour
ney was the Indian appropiation bill
carrying approximately $9,000,000
which recently passed the House of
Representatives by a viva voice vote.
This bill has now gone to the Senate
lor action
