It is doubtful whether the fault of which she is charged in the complaint ever became apparent to any of her Washington guests or came to the knowledge of her friends there. Indeed, It was so much ot a secret that no one iu Stillwater, except, pos sibly, very intimate friends, were awura of it, though she has lived there many years, Mr. and Mrs. Babin have no children of their own, but they have adopted three.

We can likewise learn of the amazing selfishness of man. God was not respon slble for the destruction of those lives.

What friendship? They child from the father. or That disaster is T^e Hand nf God. Rev. D. T. Phillips, pastor of the Sec ond Baptist Church of Baltimore said: ■'What untold disasters lie latent in be nignant Nature! Another lesson is the criminal oversight on the part of human authorities, and It cannot be e.xsused. We recognize the hand of God in this terrible dispensation, yet we protest against the authorities who are directly responsible for this sad calamity. It has been repeatedly stated that this huge reservoir was originally Intended for the amusement and sport of rich worldlings, habitual Sabbath breakers and gay and giddy pleasure seekers." Th« World Not Worn®. Rev. Royal H. Pullman, pastor of the Uni versahst Church of Baltimore said: "This magnificent response of the people to the cry of suffering shows that Chris tianlty is greater than any church; greater than all the churches, however divine they are. Who shall say now the world is growing worse?" Trost« and Syndicate«. Rev, E. O. Eldrldge, pastor of Exeter Street Methodist Episcopal Church of Baltimore, said: "It is a fair sample of the selfish, pleasure seeking spirit that is abroad to day. Numerous trusts and syndicates, like huge dams, are concen trating millions of money for the enrich ment and pleasure of the few at the expense of the many. It lays its' covet ous hand upon all the smaller firms, com pels them to enter or forcibly destroys, and when it has the commodity under its control infiirts upon a helpless commun ity the anomaly of want and often star vation iu the midst of plenty."

Davidson, pastor of Grace Buptiat Church of Baltimore said: "Storms and floods are remarkably im partial. Water will drown the mission ary as well as t he thief. The Christian's life is not a qnlet voyage. Often it is a fierce struggle with a storm, and we con JeCture as to why tills is so.

SITTING BULL'S DOWNFALL. The Position He Once Orcupied Now Held hy Chief Galt. The New York Herald says: A few weeks ago sensational stories were printed throughout the country to the effect that Sitting Bull was about to go on the war path again. Now as he is dying every body knows the stories to be false. At the very time they were being told by his enemies the once mighty Hunkpapa was sitting iu his little "shack" on the shore of the Grand River by the corpse of ids eldest daughter, while the other members of his family were stricken with measles. The old man is indeed ending his days amid sorrow, disappointment and fail ure. Once recognized as the greatest man in the Sioux nation, be is now deposed and treated with open contempt by tlie powerful chiefs who were then bis fol lowers and comrades. ' The bitter opposition of Gall and the growing distrust among the young In dians for "Medicine men generally lifive done much to wreck his fortunes and humble his pride, from Sitting Bull ceived with derision by Ihe Ugalallas. Outside of those gathered at the Standing Rock Agency his infiueuce with the Sioux is practically nothing. White Ghost and Drifting Goose, the principal chiefs at the Crow Creek Agency, last year openly snubbed l hoir former leader. Nearly ail of the* fight ing men among the Sioux have withdraWn their support from him. Even iu his own tribe—tho Uunkpapas—more than half its numbers are followers of Sitting Bull's rivals— Gall, Two Bears, Big Head and the other members of the Sioux cabal that governs the tribe at Stauding Rock. Ouce the leader of the great host that poure.' between tne buttes at the Little Big Horn and annihilated Custer and ids command, Sitting Bull s followers have dwindled down to a petty band of kins men and clansmen, who meet in secret and call themselves the "Secret Eaters." Just what these words mean seems to know. They hold meetings, os tensibly to discuss matters that affect the welfare from which they rigidly exclude all per sons not affiliated with them. It Is a species of Indian Cl&n-na-Qael. Many Indians laugh at it, but Sitting Bull takes a very solemn view of it. It is about all that ia left to remind him of his former greatness, for by its members Sitting Bull is still regarded as the leader of the Sious—the king of the prairies. « Sitting Bull gave up ^iis paint ahi! Ii5« blanket a Jong time ago. He found that portions of the Indian costume were not adapted to the work of a farmer, but he still retains his moccasins and some other little trappings that no true Indian ever relinquishes. He has been making a pretty honest effort to be a farmer, but he has not made much money at it. He has raised some wheat and some oats, and he has a few head of cattle and a team of horses. The old man has led a secluded life of late. He has not cared to visit the agency, because there he was sure to he 1 treated witn acorn and contempt by his ' rivais who are therein the ascendancy, To day a 'message would be re no one of the Sioux nation, but »lid thus be painfully reminded of bow completely the sceptre of power baa passed away from him. When Sitting Bull dies Gall will be the unchallenged and unchallengable chief tain of the Sioux Nation, a soldier has never been surpassed by any Indian in North America, glory attaches to the victory over Custer belongs to him, for he led the Indians in that tight. His fame as Whatever His personal prowess and bravery have keen shown on many fields, as his numerous scars attest. But he is more than a fighter ; he is a general. His ability to handle effectively a large force of ludians in the fields has been acknowledged by competent military authorities. C f all the Indian chiefs Gall is about the only one remaining whose dignity has survived contact with civilization. He has never made a surrender of it At the present time his interviews with In dian agents, army officers or casual visi tors to the fort are conducted without any abatement of that formality and decorum that marked his earlier days. Sitting Bull, on the other hand, has often sacrificed his dignity. What ho could not acquire as a diplomat he has tried to gain as a mendicant. When the Dawes Commission visited Standing Rock Sitting Bull was rather in favor of signing the treaty on the ground that it contained the best terms that could bo had. But Gall was unalter ably opposed to It. Not only did he sue cessfuily confront Sitting Bril in the Indian councils and break the force of his appeals, but he afterward put some pretty sharp questions, to Major Dawes and the other Congressmen, and practi cally convicted them of falsehood to their faces. It was through Gall's opposi tion that the Dawes' Commission failed to obtain the signature pf three fourths of the male adult Sioux to the proposed treaty, which was necessary to secure its acceptance. J "Gall Is a man of unquestioned honesty. His love for his people Sitting Bull, he has never masqueraded as a patriot to gain his own ends. He is sincere in desiring that future genera tions of the Sioux Indians should be placed in a position were they can com pete on equal terms with the whites in the peaceful struggle for the_ cout rqi[ of the territory they occupy. One of his stanchest friends is John Grass, the judge of the petty Indian court that holds its sessions for the trial of small offences, and whose decrees are submitted to the vote of the Indian Natiou for re jectlon or approval. is sincere.
