The tir^t Indlan to be hllled t.v Quiel; waa named Mu.k

"Tom" and told him with prent glee that he waa of
the party that Mlled Quick'a father. He au? he had
acalpod the old, man with hls own hand. He desrribed
laughlngly the dying asonl.-- of Qulck's fjither, and
mimlcked hia cries and groans. -Tom' was im
medlately worked up to the convalsive fury of aa
enraged panthor. He .*.natjrhed an old musket from tlia
wall and polntlng lt at Mu-hwink's hroa.-t, drove him
out of the hoose In advance of hlm-elf. After proceed
ing with hlf prlsoner aboal 1 mile from the tavern, he
ahot him ln tbe back, dmggcd the body Into the bushea

At anothe* time ? T m" and two oih.-i wUta men

Another waa shot tlirouph the lic.id and thraagfc the

On one occa-ion Quuk and 1 niiniher nf other
