Kose the plaintive death chant wall. Tales of a Sioux Chief. ' "I look like I had money nor, and to tell the truth I have. I ain't blow ing about it, and ain'tashamed to admit that for ten years I was worse than lead broke. I didn't have a cent nor a Head on earth. . The years were be wean '85 and '95. I've made my little ile now and I can't count my friends, ve found that to be the way of the orld. 'When I pot desperate I did what ts of otder boys bave done, I enlisted the army, and I served my time, ana re got an honorable discharge, and n proud of it. Bat I hated the 6erv- worse than anything when I found X I bad to go In it or starve. What ' kes me proud of it? Well, I'll tell I was in the 7th cavalry in 1890. . you know now? Well, I'll tell you ae story. 'I was in the battle of Wounded Kuee Creek, in the winter of '90, and ' think that's enough for any man to i proud of . It hasn't bsen a long tile ago now, and people don't know ich about It, but it was one of the rdest battles that was ever fought In y Indian war In this country. It was after the death of Sitting Ball, and the Indians were crazy with fear and almost demoralized. "When Sitting Bull was arrested, and shot when trying to escape, there were a good many redskins on the warpatb, but his death frightened most of them, and there were only about twelve hundred of them who took to the Bad Lands and defied the troops. The rest of them went back to their reservation. The prospect was that there would be another long and bloody war with the Sioux, and the army was considerably worried. "Red Cloud was an old man, and he wanted peace. An officer had been murdered by some Indians of his band, and he was afraid there was going to ba another war. He oame back to the reservation in the dead of winter, when the snow was on the ground, to escape from his own tribe. They were inclin ed to go on the warpath with those of Sitting Bull's warriors who had taken to the Bad Lands when the old chief died. Red Cloud was almost blind, and he had to be led the whole distance by his daughter. "Sitting Bull's braves had started to jola the other Indians on the warpath, but for some reason they came back, and one morning along in the middle of December Little Bat.anlndlan scout, came in with the news that the Sioux band under Big Foot were only eight miles away on Porcupine creek, and that Big Foot wanted to speak with Captain Whiteside, who was in com mand of the Seventh cavalry. If he had gone to the Bad Lands the war would have lasted maybe for years. "We started for Porcupine creek, and the Sioux were drawn up in a line. There were more than a hundred and fif ty, and they were heavily amed. It was on a Sucday morning, I think, and though it had been pretty cold up to t bat time, it was clear and warm. When we got near to the Indians Big Foot came out alone from his side, andCaptain Whiteside went out to meet him. Big Foot offered to surrender. He had gotten tired, he said, of being hunted around, and h.9 couldn't fight with two hundred and fifty equaws and papaoses. "As soon as Big Foot surrendered we cloeed in on the Indians and marched them to our old camping grounds on the Wounded Knee creek. We formed a cordon around them and sent for reinforcements. We could see that the Indians were suspicious and uneasy, but we didn't thick there was going to be any trouble with them, as they were worn out and hungry. They were a pitiable eight. Their blankets were dirty and full of holes, their leggings were worn out, and they had absolutely nothing to eat. I never did understand how they had held out so long as they did. "The next morning Colonel Forsyth came over and took command of the troops. Then the order came to disband Big Foot's warriors. We had a Catling and a Hotchkiss gun mounted to com mand the valley where we were camped, and the boys were dismounted. Big Foot was lying in bis tent. The Indians said he had bad medicine and that he had the whlte.man's disease. I guess he meant consumption, though I kn w it was something the matter with his lungs. "The Indians were told to come out of their tents and we were formed into a hollow square with the Indians in the center. Colonel Forsyth ordered them to go back into their tents and get their guns. Twenty of them start ed, and when they came back there were two guns among them . "Captain Whiteside was a quick and Impetuous man, and be didn't like the way the Indians were doing. He or dered a squad to search the tepees and bring out every weapon, and all the ammunition that was found in them. The rest of the troop closed up closer on the Indians. "The search had hardly begun when the Indians raised their death chant. They all of them took it up and it was the most peculiar sound I had ever heard. It was almost ghastly and sounded uncanny and just like some body was really dead. You could al most draw a picture of it: The Icdians kept this up while tbey squatted on the grass, and then all of a tudden, be fore an j body knew what was happen ing it changed to the war song. "The Indiana were on tbelr feet be fore we knew anything was.wrocg, and the next minute they pulled their guns from under their blankets acd opened fire at close quarters. Those tbst didn't have guns rustud us with scalp ing knives and tomahawks and before we could realize it the fight was on. "It is going to be history some day. A thing like that seems grand and awful to me. I look back on it now and I don't blame the Indians. They thought they were going to be deprived of their arms and then murdered, and white men would have thought the same thing under the same circum stances, and would have tried to sell liveB as dearly as the Indians did. "After the first volley had been fired the troops recovered from their surprise, and after that there was the greatest possible order and discipline We clubbed our guna and fought with six shooters. The Indians were com pletely hemmed In on all sides. It was the bravest thing I ever saw done in my life and It deserves to be remec bered as long as bravery is honored. "The fact that they were Indians doesn't make any difference to me. It was the bravest thing I ever saw done. There wasn't a ohance for the Indians from the start. We had about six hundred men where tbey had only one hundred and fifty, and besides tbey were hindered with their squaws and papooses. They intended to die fight ing rather than be butohered, and any brave people in the same position would have done what they did. We didn't understand each other. Thai's all. "Those Sioux fought like fiends, and that little handful of them almost cut their way through and escaped. Some of them did. "We were in such close quarters that it was a hand to hand fight from the start. Indians and soldiers lay on the ground looked in each other's arms, Indian knife against revolver butt, and that's the way they were found after the fight. "There wasn't any mercy shown on either side. As soon as the Indiana made the first rush tbe troops met It with a cheer, and above the noise of the fight you could hear some cavalry man jelling aa loud as he could: "Remember Custer." It was taken up and we cheered wh'.la we fought. The men lost all control of themselves. I can only speak for myself, but I know that the only thing I wanted was to kill as many redskins as I could. It waa tbe excitement of the battle. "I've beard it said that the cavalry didn't make any distinction between the braves and their equaws. It isn't so. It's a l;e. I doa't believe a single man knowingly shot a woman. There (Continued oa 5th oage.) 4 i OBSERVE THE ILLUMINATED TRI-COLOR SIGN.
