As a result of the shooting of the boy
the companies of Minneapolis, or a t least
three of them, are now without a range
for target practice. The range wa s with
in the village of Columbia Heights and
the council a t a recent meeting decided
to enforce the ordinance making it a mis
demeanor punishable by a fine of $5 to
fire a gun or revolver within the village
limits. This ordinance, it seems, is an
old one. Consequently when the boys
visited their range on Saturday they were
informed that they could use it no longer.
The companies have no great complaint
Numbers of small boys visit the range
whenever it is open, and have often been
driven away. They wait until the firing
has ceased and go back of the pit an d
dig for the old lead. Sometimes it is al
most impossible to keep them a w a y from
the pit until th e firing ha s ceased, an d
some, a little more bold than th e rest,
venture very close to the pit. After the
firing is over th e targets are taken down
and the frames cleaned. Th e paper cov
ering is taken off, and strips of heavy pa
per four an d five feet long a t times blow
around th e grounds. It wa s a t one of
these pieces of paper that Mr. Walton
thought he was shooting, he says, when
the boy wa s killed. The boy ha d been
lying in th e grass in the vicinity of th e
pit. The gun was not a Springfield, a s

"Mr. Steele and myself," said Mr.
Brackett, "went from St, P e t e r to F o r t
Ridgley on t h e day t h e wounded were
brought in from Birch 'Coulie, and a day
or tw p after the fort had been relieved.
W were the first me n to go through from
St. P e t e r without a n escort. One of the
first l&en we saw w a s Dave Redfield, one
of t h ^ best known of th e early settlers,
who toad been wounded in t h e ankle a t
Birch Coulie. 'Fo r heaven's sake, George,'
said Dave a s soon a s he saw us, 'have you
got a drink?' Mr. Steele and myself had
brought a bottle of ru m with us, and Mr.
Steele handed it over to Dave, who pulled
and pulled at th e bottle until I had serious
fears about our recovering any 'of th e
liquor. Finally when he banded th e bottle
back I asked Steele 'for th e cork. 'Never
mind th e cork,' said Dave, 'just give m e
back the bottle.'
"The morning after our arrival Gen
eral 'Sibley sent out the women and chil
dren and other refugees who had collect
ed a t Fort Ridgley with a strong guard of
cavalry on t h e way to St. Peter. J u s t be
fore we started some moving objects were
seen off on the prairie, and great com
motion ensued, as it was naturally
feared t h a t the Indians were coming
again.. Soon, however, w e could see a
wagon with a m a n walking beside it. It
turned out to 'be Old iPaul, a Christian In
dian, who ha d stolen a iGerman woman
and he r children from th e hostile band,
and wa s aiding them to escape. You can
see t h a t there really were a few real
Christians among th e Indians even in
"After the cavalry and their convoy
had started, Mr. Steele and myself re -
mained behind'for some time taking mes
sages from General Sibley to carry to St.
Peter. W e had only gone a short distance
from the fort when we saw the cavalcade
coming back a t full speed. They reported
that th e Indians were coming. W e per
suaded t h e m t o stop and reconnoitre a
little, and lMr. Allen, who managed t h e
Merchants hotel in St. Paul for many
years, went to the edge of t h e bluff and
peered over. Then back he came on the
run. 'Bub-buhbetter run, bubboys,'
he cried with ihis well known stutter,
'they're coming.' Mr. Steele and myself
tried t o 'get some of th e cavalry to pusQi
on t o St. Peter, but t h e officer in com
mand said Hhat h e had no orders except
to protect t h e settlers In the party, and
back they went t o the fort.
"Of course it was a very natural and
prudent thing for the cavalcade to go back
to F o r t Ridgley, in view of the presence
of th e women and children in th e party,
but Mr. Steele and I talked it over and de
cided that as we had a good team, we
would push ahead slowly until we really
saw the Indians ourselves. Soon we did
see a spot of red on the plain, and as we
advanced we sa w it move. We pushed
on very cautiously, and presently the ma n
saw that we were whites and stood up.
He told us that his wife and family had
been killed by the Indians, and that he
had escaped and was trying to make his
way to t h e fort. H e said that he had
seen some mounted men advancing,
toward him, but t h a t a s ,soon a s they
caught sight of him 'they r a n like the
" W e were r a t h e r amused a t Allen's
taking alarm so easily, although it was
really the only prudent thing for him and
(Major G a l b r e a t h t o d o t o m a k e sure of the
safety of their convoy. It only illustrates
the error which the word 'Indian' car
ried with it in those days. Mr. Steele and
myself accordingly pushed on reaching St.
Peter that night without seeing a single
Indian. One the way we stopped
where ha d stood th e house of Mrs.
Bush, who kept a half-way station be
tween the fort and St. Peter. He r house
had been burned, but we found a black
chicken, killed and skinned it, and nailed
the skin upon a tree where it would easiy
be seen by anyone passing by. Under
n e a t h we wrote upon a sheet of paper
This is 'Little Crow,' an illusion t o the
famous Indian chief leader of the out
break. W e then described how we had
found Mr. Allen's 'Indians', and not having
been killed by them would go on through
to St. Peter.
"This incident came near causing a ser
ious altercation between Mr. Steele and
Major Galbreath later, when Mr. Steele
twitted the major with the circumstance
in the Merchant's hotel in St. Paul."
Evening entertainments of a high order
have now become a settled feature of the
Minnesota state fairs. Experience run
ning through several seasons ha s demon
strated that the people w a n t some sort of
amusement a t th e fair grounds in the
evening. Many people who have been
shopping in the cities through the day
like to go to the fair grounds r a t h e r
late in the afternoon, spend a short time
in examining the exhibits, take supper
a t the grounds, see a few more exhibits
under electric light, an d spend the 're-
mainder of the evening a t th e grand
stand. Fo r this year's evening enter
