to the care and &kill with whica it is

all the importance of purr batting the
true and original remedy. As the
genuine Syrup of Figs Is manufactured
by the California Fig Htrup Co.
only, a knowledge of that fact will
isftibt one in avoiding the worthless

This reservation is the home of what
was once known as the Lower Brules,
now called Rosebud Indians. It ex
tends fiom Big White river on the
north, south sixty miles to the state of
Nebraska, and from the Missouri river
wett one hundred and twenty miles
and has an area of 2,500 000 acres of
land. The general lay of the country
is rolling, though there are large
stretches of valley and level praiye
land. Much of it is worthless, being
nothing tut beds and hilU cks of sand
Not twenty per cent, is arable, and
this per cent, is rendered worthless for
fai miner purposes because of the laek
of ram; yet, taken as a whole, it is
fine grazing country that is for a lim
ited number oi cattle
The whole surface of the reservation
is now covered with buffalo, blue, and
a wire grass, and I have never seen it
as beautiful as at tne present. It is
one vast rolling, wiae-sweeping green
meadow field, charming to look at and
encouragirg to those who have
cattle thereon and to those who ex-
neet to make it their future home
and engage in the stock industry
The agency is thirty-five miles north
of Valentine. Nebraska, the nearest
railroad station, and is reached either
bv sts.6re or private eonveyence. It is
located on a small plateaa, skirting
Rosebud creek and takes its name
threfrom. This is the agency of
which I had temporary charge, in the
fall of 18!0. when the Souix war to
called, broke out and some of the
scenes and incidents of that period
have been brought fresh to my mind
hv hninc here at this time. I remem
ber how the very atmosphere seemed
charged with the elements of fear and
apprehension, how a good many spoke
in bated breath, expressing a fear that
the Iudians might come down "like a
wolf on the fold" upon the agency
some night, sealp the force, burn the
buildings and play havoc generally.
I am reminded of a little incident
personal to myself, how in company
with Mr. Caton, the boss farmer, I
started one afternoon for Black Pipe,
where Short Bull and his ghostjdancers
had their camp, and were doing all
sorts of naughty things according to
report, for the purpose of holding
a council with this naughtv
little warrior, and see if I
could not induce him and his
followers to quit and be good. How
when we reached Cut Meat school
house we concluded to stay all night,
and go on next day, and that about
dark, a policeman came riding up in
hot haste and handed me a letter from
the clerk, Mullens, in which he said
"you had better coma back,Short Bull
has called out his men and the soldiers
are coming." How. that Caton, no
sooner t'tan he rea i the lelter.immedi-
ately jumped up and said let us go,
and started for the stable to gear up
the team and hitch them to the buggy,
etc. Now of course 1 was not alarmed
but it did seem to me he never would
get ready to make the start and I
never have been able to account for
thi tardiness onlv on the irrouuds tuat
ho KM ao f rihtenMl aA the Bnipd
ktPt&0ilTfctfcu&min&il this matter
is, that at that time and even the other
day when I saw him this incident
was referred to, he still insited in
public and private that I was so scared
that I did not know whether I was in
the body, or out of it, and was quite
incompetent to tell what his state of
mind was. Such is life, however, and
we are compelled to make the best of
it we can,
I was sent here for the purpose of
making a thorough inspection of the
agency and to do so, was compelled to
travel near four hundred miles over
the reservation.
In visiting the Ponca sab issue sta
tion, which is tho camp of Chief Swift
Bear, a camp a hundred miles from the
aeency, we hid quite an outing. The
agent. Major McChesney, accompanied
me. We had a double seated spring
wagon, in which were the interpreter,
the agent, his son and myself. Then
we had a supply wagon drawn by four
big mules, with Omaha Boy as driver,
and a policeman on horseback. The
second night out we were caught in a
heavy rain storm, accompanied with
fearful lightning and thunder, and in
the morning some were laying in pud
dies of water though not drowned. We
all took the storm as one of the inci
dents of an outing and did not com
plain. Lewey found it difficult to start a
fire in the morring, but by patient
continuance in well doing he at ias
got one under headway, and it was not
long until we sat down, or stood as we
I.ked, and partook heartily of coffee
fried bacon, Boston baked beans acd
hard bread, after which we loaded up
our camping fixtures and started on
our journey. About 3 p. m. we reached
I onca sub-station, the objective point
of our trip, and at 5 sat down to a sup
per prepared by the farmer's wife
that was indeed appetising and
enjoyable. Fonca and the val

taken their aliottments and have pen

the Indians swarmed these hills and
valleys in unindisturbsd freedom and
when the country was filled with
countless numbers of buffalos, elk,
deer and antelope from which they ob
tained their principal food supply.
One cannot but feci a sympathy for
these Indians as he listens to their
picturing in glowing colors the glory,
to them at least, of those bright days.
They recognize, however,, that these
davs are one to return no more and
are endeavoring to adjust themselves
to the new and ehaged conditions
which are trradnallv gathering atont

and resting a day or two, we started

It was a pretty dreary waiting, but
we bore it bravely. The sky
cleared about noon, and after
a cup of coffee and some
hard bread, we were again on the way,
the horses in the start shivering with
cold. It became so chilly in the after
noon that I had to wear my overcoat;
had a horse blanket for a lap-robe and
a woolen blanket wrapped around me,
and this the 1st day of August. In the

New York, N. Y., August 120
Perhaps the most interesting feature
of the general business situation at
present is the air of confidence with
which the mercantile community
awaits the approach of the fall trade
period. While of course based in some
degree on the favorable results already
achieved in many lines, it is unques
tionably true that the flattering erop
outlook at home and the return of
peace, with the expectation of benefits
to our export trade naturally expected
to accrue therefrom, make tor much of
the feeling thus expressed. The reports
as to collections are very encouraging.
From winter wheat sections especially
reports are very good. Some slowness
is noted in payments at the northwest.
