(Continued From Page 4.) They made regular trips to the main land for game, and extended the raids as far south as the Milwaukee—or as it was then known, the Maniwacky river. They had temporary villages near the outlets of all the principal rivers. One summer, about the year 1700 they found that a large body of Chippewas had in vaded their hunting grounds, of which they were very jealous. War was at once proclaimed. The Braves assembled on Washington Island, and in pa'nt and feathers, with quivers bristling with arrows, with tomahawk and scalping knife they set out in a large flotilla of canoes, a miniature “Invincible Armada’’ for the battle ground. But when they reached the middle of the channel a furious squall came up, which scattered and capfized the frail canoes, and hun dreds of the savages were drowned. For many days their bodies were washed on the shores of Detroit island, jus south of Washington. The Indians buried their dead, and overcome with superstition and dread, for had not the Great Spirit favored the Chippewas? They deserted these islands forever, many of them moving to Southern Michigan. Some years later, so writes S. (J. Stumhaugh an Indian agent, a largo number of Indians were lost near the rock known as Table lioch, the northern most point of the main land. “'There was and is still a table in the lake al most immediately under the blult, pre senting a face of solid rock perhaps thirty feet square. A hand of Indians in canoes on their way to some of the Fre; ch trading posts halted at this place for the purpose of resting and taking some refreshments; and while seated on this stone table which then projected about three feet above the surface of the water, a storm arose, sud denly, which swept over the rock il tremendous sea, and dashed their canoes to pieces. The bluff of rocks was too steep to scale, and the poor creatures having no other means of escape, but trusting to the waves to drive them ashore at some distance from the fatal spot nearly all perished. In memory of this fatal day. on the face of the rocks fifteen or twenty feet above the surface of the water there are figures of Indians and canoes painted Indian fashion, which must have been done with much difficulty, and by the help of scaling ladders during a dead calm on the lake. " Since these calamaties this channel has been called I‘url (h* .1 fnrhs, or death's door. And to this day it deserves the name. <hi either end of Pilot Island, 1 one of the smallest of the group. lies a large griin wreck.

They came originally from the St. Lawrence river country, but they were a wailike and uncompanionable race, at outs with every other tribe. ; Gradually they were driven west to j Lake Huron. Lake Superior and at length to the Fox river of Wisconsin, where they were ever at war w ith all other tribes, with the French, and at last with the English and the Ameri j cans. Their last war w r as under the ! great chief Black Hawk. At thai time they dwelt in Southwestern Wisconsin. I Saginaw and Ozaukee derive their names from these tribes. The latter be ing the Indian name f r Sacs. The 1 Foxes called themselves Out agamies. The French called them Les Raynards. In 17tlo the .Menomonies took a leading part in the celebrated battle at Butte de Morts. tin hill of tin ilt ad. a lew miles west of Oshkosh. In 1754 the son of the tirst white settler in Wisconsin Charles de Langlade, who had married an Otta wa maiden, and had great influence with the Indians, invited the warriors of all tlie tribes within many days trav el from Green Bay, to repair to that point for a talk. Every village was rep resented, Wimiehagos, Pottowatomies, Menomonies, ( hippeways, Ottawas and other tribes responded to the i all. Un der the leadership of de Langlade these Indians repaired to Fort <lu Quesue and took part in the sanguinary defeat of Braddock. The English were at dinner and de Langlade urged the French cap tain, Beaujen, to attack, which the tim id though supercillious officer refused to do. But when de Langlade threaten ed to withdraw with his Indians if the battle was not began nt onee. t lie command was given, Beaujen was kill til. Braddock mortally wounded, and Washington conducted the retreat and ' established his reputation as a soldier. The slaughter of the British was fright ; fill. Eight hundred Englishmen lost | their lives. < >ui of eighty oliie*-rs sixty I three were killed. Their hand- me uni forms and helmets served to adorn the savage foes, and many a trophy of inis battle subsequent!} decorated Indian lodges in Manitowoc county, side by side with the bloody proofs of the Indians' prowess, were the scalps of Braddnek's men. In 17‘>8 these Indians took part in the successful defense of Ticonderoga a .rainst Abercrombie. In 17 o'.) their greed was responsible for the bloody vnussaive at Fort William Hcary. In 17d:i they fought the English in the Pontiac war. Two years later de Langlade again gath ered his Indians and proceeded in canoes toQuebeck. and on thel’lains of Abraham where both Wolfe and Montcalm lost their lives, they bought for the French cause. When (jueheck surrendered and the English occupied the French outposts, the Indians and the French bushranger* entered the employ of then- new rulers to serve again t the Americans or lomj kulfts during the Revolutionary war. They were offered a bonn ty for every American >calp by (ica. Hamilton who was hetiod'orth known bv the name, ••the hair buyer. An Eng lish gunboat was sent to cruise along the west shore of Lake Michigan for the purpose of inciting the Indians against the Americans. In 17s:> some of these lame Indians were sent to attack the Spanish settlements on the west side of the-Mississippi, hut nothing was accom plished. In INI I the Fottawatamies fought under Tecumseh at Tippecanoe. iNpithe Indians assembled at Green Bay to again join the English. The French traders generally held commis sions in the English army. In 1882 during the Black Hawk war j the Winnebago Indians were the alley* iof the whites against the Sacs and Fox es. After this date the Indians of this county were generally peaceful and ex changed their venison, peltries or ber ries with those who first put up their rude shanties for settlement. In 1532 there were many Indians at the site of the Manitowoc, and the Twin rivers, but in 1835 very few were seen by the first settlers of this county. But the country lying along the lake shore north of Two Rivers was ever a favored resort as is proven by the innumerable relics that are found in the sand along five or six miles of file lake shore. Here, where the waves sang perpetually was the burying ground of many a tribe. Here were heard the lamentations of the squaws, and the weird chants of the warrior. And til,’ melancholy flr trees Waved their dark green fans, above him Waved their purple eanes above him. Mingling witn his lamentations. Their complaining, their lamenting. And here the hist bands of Menomon ies lingered until late in the sixties, no longer the proud and noble savage, of old, but sorry vagabonds, ragged and debased, who were rendered happy when they were permitted to gather np the leavings of the whites at the new settle menfs, of whom they adopted new vices and contracted new diseases. They hung around the fish shanties where they gathered np the off-fall which they carried to their kettles on the lakeshore to extract the oil. This they exchanged for vile fire water at the settlement. <)n their return a grand feast was held on the remnants of fish off-fall in the ket tles and the whiskey. One of a num ber of Indians who visited Two Rivers frequently was known as Indian Mary. She had a lighter complexion than her companions, was rather good looking and was probably the descendant of some white roun in dn liofa; but she was a vixen when drunk or aroused. ( )ne day while in her unsteady canoe in the river she rose to her feet for some pur pose, when a young while man, to frighten her called out "Look out Mary.'’ She turned suddenly, her canoe capsized and she wa spilled into t he water, much to the amusement to those on shoe. With a cry of rage she struck out ft -r the shore. The young man took to his heels, but Mary was tleet-footed, and soon overtaking him, she drew her knife and plunged it into his hack. lie was laid np for many a day. but finally re covered. (>n another occasion during one of those lake shore feasts Mary had 1 1, altercation with the chief of the band, and. with her ever ready knife she sur prised the old gentleman by gouging out one of ins eyes. In consternation all the Indians at oncedeparted for the woods. Tsoy returned after many weeks, and not only was the chief po- . us one eye. but V-ir - 'a o die also , been remit ed sightless. Thus was the Indian’s idea of justice like the ancient law of Moses, “An eye for an eye." Between I*3o and |M5u the I’ottawa lomics. Wimiehagos, Oliippewas and Menomonies, all of whom claimed tin country of which Manitowoc county is a part eeeded their rights to the govern meiit. and in the course of a tew years retired to the reservations assigned to them. The Menomouie is the only tribe that has retained in part at least its ancestral home Shawano reserva tion. In ISiiT ('hippewas had a village at Cato Falls, whose Chief, Misehe cot or “Mexico as the whitit s called him, was 1 ’ir the good friend of the new settlers. He died in IM'-i and was buiied in Town of Rapids. In Isis a haml of 50(1 Menomouie warriors with their women and children had then l winter ( imps mi the Manitowoc river, where the depot of the city of Chilton now stands, under a chief known as Littleway. In is.v.l Menomouie Indians had planting grounds in the town of Schleswig, and as late as IWJ Indians sojourned near Two Rivers. Many ot the buck, efte.i came to the villages, with their horse-s. dogs, squaws and |a 1 -es. to trade >r beg or to show their duskv babies for lie- con sideration tuti penny or two. or to (lis pin' tin ir skid with the bow and arrow. 'I he hol es were generally gaudily arrayed with sleighbells and baughs, and the Indians delighted to ride them at a full gallop, whooping and yelling the w hile in I heir wild joy and pride In |s.‘>o a party of Menomonies who had been indulging in their enst unary feast of ti*h ulf fal, iiinl whisky at Two Fivers were taken wick with small] ox. Twelve of them died, and were hnru-d in the sand of the lake shore. The con tagion spread. < >ut of three hundred white people in the vi.iage fifty died. The remains ot many of these red men who succumbed to this frightful disease may now he viewed as prize bones in many a relic hunter's Indian cabinet. Though the Indians in this county seldom molested a white, when nearly all of them had departed for their assigned reservations, or had ascended to the perpetual home of the Brave, they were the cause of the worst fright that our citiz-us ever ex|erienced.
