AN INDIAN DETECTIVE.
Spotted a Horse Thief With the Help
of His Sharp Eyes.
\Whie Eagle correspondence Kansas
"This is a Ponca Indian Sherlock
Holmes story." said an oldtimer. puff
ing a freshly rolled cigarette. "I lived
at the Ponca agencies in the eighties
when few persons except government
in-pector. and cowboys ever came.
Occasionally a stranger stopped on
his way through to buy, 'chuck' at
the trader's store. The Poncas wore
blankets in those days. and were
much better Indians than now.
It was high noon one spring day.
and the agency was as quiet as a
graveyard. Four Indian policemen
sat drowsing on a bench. the usual
loafing place. against the agency
btiilding,. Summer was in the air and
the praries and timber in the river
bottom looked fresh and green. In
the agency office hung the six-shoot
ers and ammunition belts of the four
policemen, and nearby was a stock
of rifles, ready for quick use. Desper
adoes were in the country. scouting
between Kansas and Indian Territory,
and the agency employes were always
on the alert. The Ponca pony herds
often were raided. and the policemen
kept close watch for the horse
"The four policemen on the bench
were disturbed by the sound of a
horse's feet. The horse, a fine one.,
was ridden by a stranger who dis
motnted at a trader's store and dis
appeared inside. The first policeman
rubbed his eyes a moment, said 'ugh,'
and the second, third and fourth did
likewise. One after the other they
went quickly into the agency office
and came back with their belts and
-Thev made a dash for the trader's
store, but the stranger saw them com
ing and ran out of the bick door to
ward the timber on Salt Fork. The
four policemen began firing in vol
leys. The stranger shot as he ran,
and escaped into the heavy growth
of trees without a scratch. The four
policemen were in fighting trim. and
kept up the chase.
"The noise of the firing awoke the
sleepy agency like a cannonade. Men
and women ran out doors to learn the
cause of the- uproar. Little clouds of
smoke that hung in the air, and occa
sional shot in the timber showed that
the fight was still on, but no one
could tell why or how it began.
"The stranger ran to the river,
sprang into a skiff and was on his way
down stream when the four police
men drew up opposite and command
ed him to come to shore and surrend
er or be killed. The stranger refused
and bullets begai. striking the water
near the skiff. He changed his mind
quickly and gave up.
"He was marched before the agent,
who asked the four policemen:
" What's the matter: who is this
" Him horse thief.'
"'Do von know him?'
" ,.we never see him.'
vtDoyo know' his horse?'
'N'): never see him horse before.'
"'Well. how~ in thunder do you
know this man is a horse thief?' de
manded the agent. who was growing
angry at the idea that the policemen
had suddenly jumped up. half asleep,
and began shooting to kill at a pos
sible inoffensive stranger.
"The chief of the four policemen
:urv'ed a hand around each eye and
said: 'White man ride with 'blinders'
or bridle.' Andl that was his only ex
plan at ion.
His evidence, however, was strong
nough to convict in that part of the
ountry. The Indian knew that any'
tranger riding on horse back so far
romr civilization would have a regu
ation outnlt for his horse. and that a
tranger with a g' od horse and a
ridle with blinds in all probabil
t was a thief who had stolen bo0th
from sorme mnan's stable.
"The stran.ger was !oeked up in the
gency caillah.r -e and held for in
(niry. The~ pr 1ctimen had miade no
