Not the least interesting of these
tales pertains to the finding of sev
eral perfectly petrified bodies, and the
uncanny feeling which one has when
he listens to the account is intensified
at the end where it is related that one
of the petrified aborigines was used
as a hitching post, while another
served as a cigar sign.
Eight men worked with Joe digging
for the bodies of the dead Indians.
Joe receives $14.50 per corpse from
the government therefore he is ex
ceedingly industrious. The moon
beams. filtering through the branches
of the pines, shone down on Joe one
night as he labored with pick and
spade. About him the razed fence
that had been built about the final
resting place of a tribal leader, formed
a decorative festoon. Dig, dig, dig,
stopping only to wipe the perspira
tion from his brow. Joe labored on.
He heard not the croaking of the frogs
in the pond nearby, nor paid he any
attention to the echoing calls of the
animals that roamed abroad in their
nocturnal search for food.
Encountering what appeared to be a
stone, Joe laid aside his shovel,
mopped his sweaty face, and then set
to work with a pick. Joe is a callous
man. used to looking composedly on
jgrinning skulls and heaps of bones,
but when he saw there, in the uncer
tain light, the grim countenance of a
real red man, sticking tjp in the hole
he had made, he fled for his assist
ants, aroused them from their sleep
and enlisted their services in calming
his perturbed mind and in completing
the removal of the body.
Finally the report reached the Chip
pewa village and then there was more
trouble for De Champ who had«vari
ous heart-to-heart talks with inquiring
red people.
The upstart of it all was that the
cigar sign and the hitching post have
been decently buried if indeed, the
bodies were ewer used for that pur
It was alnfort perfectly' jpij&^rved
and was removed from its shallow
grave with difficulty. 'Nearby an
other body was encountered in the
same condition and the two wefe laid
aside while the work of removing the
other mortal remains progressed.
It so happens that f)e Charrtp is
great joker and when the story of the
petrified cigar Indian and the aborig
inal Hitching post got around, bis
friends began to ask about his resur
rection operations with mock serious

eastern type. Most of the younger men
who are taking the leading places in

Walter Baker's
Dakota Farmer: A matt came tofc th
writer not long ago to. get his advice a
to [how he could "punish" a child tha
was nearly man grown and away a'
school. "If Be vas small, 1 could vii
him veil he came home," said the par
ent earnestly. The Jjoywas, how.evei.
admittedly not only too far away bu
too large .for .safe whipping. Still i
some way, he muSt'be "punished."'' I
vain we tried to show the father tha^
while the boy had evidently done
wrong to his father and because he di-i
not like him, that merely hurting hini.
physically or otherwise, would, coulti.
only increase the child's dislike a!
most hatred—of its parent. But whe i
a child does wrong, it must be pun
ished, was the one idea this poor man
had on governing children. Thi
purely brute way he had been taugh
from childhood and to tell him that
only brought out and magnified th
brute and bad in any child, .was 01
no avail. In these civilized times,
will surprise many of our readers
know that 'in many so-called home:
and barns, whips are still in stable
behind the poor dumb animals, anl
convenient to the little ones in the
house, so that whenever the parent or
owner is angry enough, they can vent
their rage on defenseless beings be
fore they "cool down." To be sure,
now and then, there is a well meaning
but sadly .misguided person who
knows no other way, but ninety-nine
times in a hundred, inflicting physical
hurt upon child or animal, is done-in
anger and while it cowers thie poor
animal,'it forever brutalizes the poor
child. Barbarous nations everywhere
allow whipping of both wife and chil
dren by the monster who is strongest
in the family. As they become more
civilized, the wife is usually exempted
and still higher civilization will not
permit either child, wife or animal
to be pounded. One or two proud,
foreign nations today still permit wife
beating, but draw the line 011 more
than two beatings a week and usually
prescribe that bones must not be
broken or scars made on the face.
This may still seem very hard to civ
ilized Americans, but it is really en
couraging when we recall the fact that
in some parts of Europe, a strong
whip is handed the husband by the
bride as a part of the wedding cere
mony. Some time ago, The Home
stead gave a large part of a special
number to this question and from it
we take the following which we wish
could be hung up in large letters in
every home in the Dakotas:
i "There are many good reasons why
tike rod should not play a prominent
part in the control of Children. To
enumerate a few of them: First, many
pnrents inflict corporal punishment at
a time when they are least fitted to do
so, and do it in a manner that will
always be harmful. When parents
permit their temper to run away with
theru^ $nd anger to
rpsori,'" and thfen 'in itfis fit beat their
cMld for »,.«oqpe .^pisdjemca^or* ..£ be
comes, Usually, an act of cruelty,* and
seeing such 1 have felt compelled to
interfere ill behalf of the children a
number of times, though a stranger.
Filling a child with such physical fear,
anger and hatred, cannot elevate the
cjiaractcr. While it may modify out
Ward acts it will not produce that in
ternal change of character, or, if it
produces M. -»Ms for the worsen We
liKvfe seen how extreme physical fear
makes men brutal. We could point
to many facts to prove this.. Ln the
recent Chicago fire men are said to
have knocked down women and
trampled under *foot little girls in their
mad fear. Now the object of home
training has in view the elimination
of some of those things we have in
common with the brutes, and to incul
cate the principles of civilization, with
all it implies,and this cannot be reached
by the route of the rod. It is a wel
known fact that under a cruel and
tyrannical teacher the pupils soon b»
come vicious and untrustworthy. It
is generally acknowledged that a child
should not be whipped until he sees the
justice of the punishment, but who
would want to beat a child that is sorry
and expresses regret and promises not
to do so again? And unless this is the
case, whipping must and will produce
a feeling of resentment or revenge, as
he thinks he has been punished un
justly, or because those inflicting it
were physically his superiors. Then,
in the next place, the disciple of the
rod will sometimes beat an innocent
child. I knew of one, who is now old
and gray, whose parents administered
a most unmerciful whipping on him on
suspicion,and, as it turned out later,
innocently, when he was only 8 years
of age that seems almost beyond his
power to forgive, though the parents
have long ago passed away. I would
rather see a hundred go free that were
guilty of various misdeeds than to pun
ish* one that was innocent. How cor
poral punishment, and the fear of
whipping will paralyze the sense of hon
or and every noble sentiment of the
soul how it will repress alt that is
God-like and arouse all that is demon
iac could, be shown by numerous facts
in almost every community."
