DARLINGTON, I. T., FEB. 10, 1882.
There is nothing so guy,
As when during Mny
The stockmen arc having thcte "round-up.
No longer in camp,
And in mud houses damp,
Tho jolly cow boys arc bound up.
The Mexican pony
Ho looks proud and tony,
And seems to feel winter is over;
Cures ad., for his master,
And runs all tho faster,
Ho is smelling the grass and the clover.
And many a beast
Is later shipped East
Wliilo westward goes many a dollar;
So stockmen come all
And dress up in tho fall,
Keal nobby from the feet to the collar.
A3 thoclothingmon's "Boss"
Is well known Kahn fc Sehlot-s.
Where the stockmen all moot and are trading
So you'll purchase 1 guess,
At the firm "K. & P."
Whose goods wear forever without fading.

Entered into rest at Darlington,
January 25, 1882, James Bears
Heart, aged 35.
James Bears Heart was .one of the
Cheyenne captives taken to St. Au
gustine seven years ago. After their
release by the Government, .James
was for a time- at the Hampton, Va.
school, and nflerward at Carlisle,
Pen ii. Me returned to his people
in the spring of 1881.
"While at the East, he became a
member of the Church, and from
that time to his death, lived a singu
larly pure and gentle life. My first
acquaintance with him began in
June 1881. When we came to the
Territory, he met us at Caldwell and
brought us down to the Agency. I
was much pleased with his quiet
gentle ways, and particularly with
his reverent demeanor at our morn
ing and evening devotions. lie was
always present at the services of the
Church until he became too feeble
After my return from the Lower
Agency, J .administered the com
munion to him in his tent, his
friends sitting by and looking won
deringly on. His disease was the
dreaded lung trouble of thorace,aud
at times he .suffered severely. He
talked with me freely about his ap
proaching death, expressing his firm
trust in his crucified Redeemer. He
told me that he wanted I should
take charge of his burial and of all
his things. His friends yielded to
his wishes, and did precisely as I
directed them in all the details of
the funeral, so that it was through
out a Christian service. The Agent
and his family were present, evincing
a warm-hearted Chilian sympathy

Looking on the map of "New Mex

you will see the country of the Zu

other people, have light, flaxen hair,
and the Indian ladies might even be
considered blonde beauties. Some of
them have red eyes albinos. The
women have regular, pretty feature? ;

iWoVtftfter the Navajos, their ir.orc
warlike neighbors, conquered them,
or perhaps bcfoiie, they built their
village or town in the form of a
hollow square, as a quasi fortress.
Into this hollow square they lead
their flocks and herds at night, shut
the gate, climb up by ladders to the
roof of their adobe houses, haul up
the ladders and go to sleep in confi
dent security. The entrance to their
dwellings is only by the roof like
the Indians of Taos and other places
in .ew Mexico as a means of salo
ty. Their worship is a mixture of
idolatry and Catholicism, so far- as
could be ascertained. They worship
a very ancient figure of the Trans
figuration the origin of which they
know not and have no tradition.
Unlike the Navajos or Nabajoes
their neighbors they are a peaceful,
simple race, but are-dwindling t'way
and soon will become extinct, espe
cially a,a they intermarry other
marriages being strictly prohibited.

John Slidell, United States senator
