Horses Iicst—Narrow Escape of
•This morning about fiva o'clock the
outgoing Black Hills Stage met with a
disastrous accident on the river. Last
evening a team broke through and was
rescued. The driver was aware of the
hole left and aimed to drive slear of it,
but missed his mark. The horses
plunged through the thin ice made
during the night and the driver tum
bled forward in their midst. It was a
death struggle with him, but he was
equal to the emergency and escaped.
Three of the horses were drowned, aad
the fourth one died after he was fished
out on the ice. There was not suffi
cient belp around or they woald all
have been saved. The passengers were
footing it across the ice and were not
in the "break." The hind wheels did
net go in the river. The mails and
baggage were saved, and the stage as
wall. Another stage was fitted out and
after the passeegers took Jbreakfast at
the Sheridan they were started on
their wav to the Hills rejoicing. The
luss was fully $6«0, as the '/orses were
as g»od as there are on the line.

The five companies of this regiment

At the reception that was given Joseph

impressible and loving heart, overflowing
with all the romantic notions that cluster
around the untutored savage, walked up
to Joseph and kissed the celebrated war
rior square on his painted lips, and then
presented him withher weddingring. The
Indian general smacked his lips with
satisfaction, and unlike his namesake of
old, stood his ground, showing that he
was no more afraid of the charge of a
pretty woman than of the soldier on the
field of battle, and that he could receive
that of the former as gracefully as he
could the onslaught of the latter.
