INDIANS AT SCHOOL
THE NURSERY OF ABORIGINAL SLIPS
AT LAWRENCE, KAN.
How the Young Indians took, tire, Study
and Work Tliclr Peculiarities and
1'rogrcss Breaking Down Tribal Clan
nisliness A aiarkcd Difference.
The Haskell institute cares for nearly 400
pupils, about one-third of whom are girls.
There is a very considerable group of build
ings forming the institute, which consists of
large and capacious structures for tho school
rooms, dormitories and living purposes of tho
pupils, and additional buildings v. Inch are
used for iJiops, storehouses of various lcinds,
and which constitute a littlo K-ttlcmcnt.
There is also a largo fai m attached, on which
tho boys aro taught fanning, gardening and
the like, and which is considered not the least
valuable of the instructive agencies to which
they arc subjected.
The institution is under tho management of
a supciintcndcnt and n largo staff of teachers
and tissibtantii of various lduds. Tho number
of tribes represented in the school is nearly
or quite thirty, and includes the names of
many of the most famous fighting bodies, as
well as of others not so well known in history.
'Do you havo any difficulty arising from
the tribal distinctions?" was nhcil of tho
'There has been a good deal, as I undcr
tlanJ, under prior managements, but I havo
substantially obliterated it under tho system
which I have adopted. There is an intenss
clannishness among tho boys on their arrival,
and in fact their tribal affections aro never
obliterated; and yet it is at least kept well
in tho background during their stay in tho
BREAKING DOWN CLAr.TUSHNESS.
"flow do you bring this about:"'
"I arrange them into companies, selecting
them with reference to size, putting tho tall
est boys on tho right, winch, of cotuvi, pie
vents anything like tribal .s.shocialion. They
are al-o mixed at tho tables, and the com
panies are roomed together in tho various
dormitories-, and thus, by these and other
means, the tribal relations aro weakened by
disuse, if not wholly obliterated."'
'Do you find an intellectual difference in
tho varioii tribes that is, aro some of tho
children of certain tribes brighter, quicker
to learn, more or lcs docile than olheio?"'
-There L not much difference in ihat direc
tion; tho c hildrcn of one clan are about the
saino in i .lellectual qualities as tho re
mainder. I do find an inequality i:. ono re
spect, and that is that I think I find more
traclabi'ity and ambition among thoso pos
sessed of wr.mor blood. Iliad much rather
teach the children of blanket Indians than
those of the more civilized. As to tho chil
dren here, while thoro are twonty-nino tribes
in all reprcs?nled, theroaio more Chcycnnes
and Arapahscs than nil others combined. "'
In referenco to tho control of the boys, tho
manager said that ho has great success in ap
pealing to their manly sentiments. It is
enough to 3ay to ancrringboy: "A bravo man
would not do that! Tho son of a warrior
would n.ot do this:-' "When one of them gives
Ills word on anything or shakes hands on it,
ho regaids his plcdgo as inviolable, and never
"goes bad' on it," in lho words of tho .super
intendent. A trip through the shops reveals the boys
engaged in various occupations. In the rooms
dovoted to ihoemakuig, thcro were four or
five young men of from IS to 20 years of ago
tngaged in r. pairing foot furniture. Soma
t-pecimens of their work were shown, and
while they w ei c not jut what would bo pro
duced l3' a cosmopolitan artist, they weio at
least creditable to the locality and tho oper
ators. They handed out their work for in-sne-tion,
and seemed sheepishly pleased at
tlie c'lnnnoudation which their labors
There were several young fellows at woik
in the carpenter shop who shoved tho piano
and handled tho mallet andchl-el with as
much earnestness as if they wero white men.
The exhibit in tho blacksmith shop was as
creditable as that of the other work places;
nnd, in short, in all tho mechanical depart
ments tho boj-s teemed as much at home as if
they wero inured to the business by genera
tions of training.
A POINT 01' DIFFKItENCE.
Theio was however, a point of difference
bctweon thesj young men nnd tho sam3 num
ber of w hite boys. There is in the face of tho
thoroughbred mechanic an expression which
i-cems to be in entire harmony with his occu
pation. There was a lack of this in tho faces
of the young Indians. They wero at tho
bench aiid forje, and yot from their counte
nances they vcenied to be far away. They
worked, as it were, mechanically, perfunc
torily. The", socmed ono thing, and their
surroundings something else. They were like
nn inharmonious element in the sciu: as if
tvo quhV unlike things had been thrown to
gether. Their expression was bolmn, .stern
andunjidding. During tho entire isit of
inspection thero was scarcely such a thing as
a smile- to b jou on tho faces of tho boy or
gill. Thii not owing to anything like un
happiuess over their situation, but rather lo
tho pcculiai it us of their race.
"Dioh ye img Indian who was at work .sug
gested somo -Viltl animal tamed MillL-iently to
porfoimilamcsMc service; something liko a
wolf broken to h-rness, doing tho woik well,
but yt vory much out of place with bit,
traces nnd cellar.

it in thuir fonthi-ss for military trapping- and

ing to narration.-of heroic deeds. "Talk tc
u "' thev will often s.v to tho superintendent,
'of thcwan-:rcof Europj!"' They listen to
battle accounts and incut- nts in the lives of
great soldiers with an intercut intone beyond
description. With such N?ntimcnts iwrvad
ing their nature-, it is not likely that they
will niftke fii-btrclass. plodding mechanics.
They mav not kn-r why they do not lov
the occupations to which civilization has as
signed them; in fact, they may fancy that
they do like thair civilized trades, but beyond
question there is somothing in these hibort
that is at war with thoir instincts. A genera
tion or two later may afford a difference, and
they mav tako kindly then to what they now
