NAVAJO BILL'S ntCCEPTIONf.
Grnna Ball and Supper at the Hog-back---a
Swell Affair.
The departure of Navajo Bill for the
Hogback, where he joins Hank Hull
in the trading store there was duly
chronicled in our last issio. It was
put on record as a severely felt loss to
u; hut we now refer to it as a decide 1
gain to the Hogback section, a fact the
people of that favored district have
readily acknowledged. Our special
reporter has forwarded us this com
plete description of the most recherche
social event that has graced, so far,
the distingue circle of the Hogback
purlieus.
The arrival of our famous friend at
his uew horfl waa, last Monday, made
the occasion of a brilliant hall given
under the auspice? of the '-399" of the
reservation. This chic affair of the
season was held in a specially erected
hogan at the back of the store.
The guests were ushered in on their
arrival by Wallite and softly propelled
from the rear toward an antique Eliza
bethian dais of carefully secleoted
cow skin, with a uisrupted brand, on
which waR placed tho guest of the
evening, Navajo Bill. Alter the us
ual courreous patting of Bill's dia-
phr.im, the ladies were shown to their
seats. Among the first to grace the
occasion was Mrs. Aleala, looking
charming in an elegant costume of
Raptiste rawhide, trimmed with lace
a la skunk, adorned with bee weed
blossom. A pair of pale tambour
stitched socks of remarkable an iquil.y
the gift of Nitsa Bega completed this
delicate costume. An artistic bodice
of peached faced gunny sack, taste
fully finged with gopher fur, and
bound round her ample waist with
softly woven rope, set ofi to advant
age the Juno pr6portions of Mrs.
Good Eye. Round her fair limbs were
carefully wrapped about 15 yards of
apana, while the sachet she swung
from her hand was tilled with the
oriental perfume of leepee sweepings,
which she gracefully placed under the
Roman nose of Bill, who fell back in a
swoon of delight.
The belle of the ball appeared (to
our reporter's exoited eye) in the per
son of Miss Caha, the latest fashion
of the lowest cut drees wss here ex
emplified, and a general polite yell of
delight greeted her appearance The
brilliant strips of lrer utilitarian top
girment, where it hung together,
fluttered in the Hogback zephyr that
swept through the tent. The whole
was covered with an applique of yel
low goat tail, studded with beads, the
decolletage of the entireity being per
fect. The moment arrived, the gentlemen
whose superfluous garments the heat
ed hand of the summer night had re
moved, chose their partners, the or
chestral tomtom sounded and in an
instant the soft and voluptuous meas
ure of the corn dance was weaving its
gyrations round. The dance was per
feet. Only one accident marred its
rythmic symmetry; that was, the un
fortunate fall, while attempting the
pas de seUl, of the gay grass widow,
Mrs. Nesca ha, whose exquisite lemon
colored skirt of accordian pleated na
gata was torn completely off 'by Topa
'beza (otherwise known as Mutton
head) who strove to raise her by the
bustle end Of the dress. Navajo Bill
gracefully escork-d the blushing mat
ron to the back of the store and rein
stated the torn garment.
Dance succeeded dance the min
uet de negiza, the numescito whilst
the glare of foo greasewood fire lit up
the glancing oyes of tho ladies. The
scene was enchanting. The air was
filled with the exquisite odor of "Ango
ra" and other efforts of the perfumers'
art. The patent pongee evening dress
strings of the bucks were degage
through the unwonted exercise.
The announcement of supper was
received with snorts of well bred de
light, and the repast, spread on the
floor on sheep skins, well repaid the
encomiums passed upon it. It was in
deed the perfection of culinary skill.
A dish of '-canis vulgaris," ho called
in their language, with trimmings of
"riageza" and chischin snuce. wa
placed first before the guest of the
evening, lhe dish was new to Bill
who set to work with all the force of a
sturdy appetite. The guests watched
his efforts with surprise At last old
Bejosha nudged him and Informed
him in a triumphant whisper that it
was his best pup. Bill lost his appet
ite. The banquet was done justice to
by all, and the remains were trans
ferred lo their haversacks.
And so parsed the night, where the
beauty and chiyalry of the Hogback
disported themselves to the harmon
ious strivings of the band. At an early
hour the tired guests were expelled
from the scene by lhe extensively
raised boot of Hank, who carefully
carried Bill, Buffering from the sopor
ific effect of the odorous dissipation, to
his repose on his luxurious couch un
der the store counter.
