DIED FOR COUNTRY
Dakota Indian Prince Killed in Battle
on Lorraine Front.
Bismarck, N. D. When Albert
Grass (Two Bears) fell on tihe Lor­
raine front, there perished the last of
a long line of distinguished American
princes. Albert Grass was a grand
nephew and adopted grandson of John
Grass, Charing Bear, or "Mato-Watak
Pe", for almost fifty years chief jus­
tice of the Teton Dakoitahs on Stand­
ing Rock.
Feeble, more than ninety years old,
but with the fire and oourage of hia
race in his heart, John Grass, only a
little more than a year ago, made at
his home south of Fort Yates,
a
memorable address in dedicating to
the service of his country his foster
son, Captain A. B. WelcJh (Charging
Bear, the Soldier), captain of I com­
pany, the Bismarck unit in the Sec­
ond North Dakota, and his grandson,
Albert Grass, or Two Bears, an enlist­
ed member of that company.
The hand of death then was on the
venerable chief justice, but he spoke
the words which fired many a brave
Teton Dakotah heart and which have
been largely instrumental in the vol­
untary enlistment of more than 200
young warriors from .Standing Rock
who have followed in the footsteps of
their brother, Two Bears.
Grave of Once Noted Chief Unvisited
by His Tribesmen.
Fort Yates, N. D.—In all North
Dakota there is nothing quite so lone­
ly and so deserted and so altogether
pathetic as the unkempt grave of Sit­
ting Bull, chief of the Sioux, which
stands alone and almost forgotten in
the midst of a great field adjoining
the Indian agency buildings here.
During the recent Indian fair, there
gathered here 3,500 Teton Dakotans,
many of whom had followed Sitting
Bull into battle. But of all the hun­
dreds encamped on the Sioux county
fair grounds, within a stone's throw
of the grave of Sitting Bull, few
seemed sufficiently interested to make
their way through the waist-high
weeds to the little rusty iron enclos­
ure.
At the head of Sitting Bull's grave
are piled in pyramid form several
large boulders. At its foot is a sim­
ple marble stone which bears this in­
scription
At least a half-dozen lives were lost
in this episode.
That more lives were not sacrificed
was due to the foresight of Major
Fetfhet in shelling the brush which
surrounded Sitting Bull's cabin. And
the young shave-tail lieutenant in
charge of the battery whose shells
sent hostile Sioux scurrying like rab­
bits from the bush, was Enoch II.
Crowder, now provost marshal gener­
al of the United States.

SIOUX INDIANS IN MOVIKS
North Dakota Ranchman Secures
Films of Sioux Tribal Life and
Customs
Bismarck, N. D. The "Y-O"
larch, one of the Missouri valley's
greatest show places, may become as
famous in tihe moving picture world
as is the Oilier Brothers' "101" ranch
in the Panhandle district.
C. P. Burnsted, owner of the "Y-O''
which comprises some 40,000 acres of
fine grazing and alfalfa lands on both
sides of the Missouri, including eight
sets of ranch buildings, Will complete
at the Standing Rock Indian fair at
Fort Yates a 5,000 foot picture which
is believed to he the most elaborate
piece of pictorial publicity which the
Northwest has ever been given. For
this picture Mr. Burnstad has utilized
the services of his own outfit of rough
riders, and he has 'succeeded for the
first time in seceuring the consent of
full-blooded Sioux Indians to perpetu­
ate on the lilm their tribal dances
and domestic, political and military
life.
At Fort Yates, by special arrange­
ment with Superintendent Kitch, noted
chieftains of the Teton Dakotah na­
tion posed before the moving picture
camera for "close-ups", and the braves
.wOio may have followed Sitting Bull
on the ill-fated campaign which cul­
minated in the massacre of Custer
and his men, staged their war dances,
ghost dances and other tribal cere­
monials. There will be more foot­
age, too, of prominent Indian writers
whose names are known in every
round-up center in the Northwest, and
with the several reels of pictures
which Burnstad hi ready has had made,
he believes he will have a most com­
plete and a decidedly interesting sym­
posium of twentieth century life on
the last frontier.
Aside from Percherons and Here
fords, Burnstad has but one hobby—
the motion picture. He has paid for
hundreds of feet of film which has
been sent East and "exhibited free of
charge through educational, agencies.
Recently, as a token of tiheir es­
teem, the Sioux of Standing Rock
reservation, formally adopted the
"Y-O" ranch king, conferring upon
him the name of their gretest chief­
tain, Gall. In celebration of this
event Burnstad hopes to make the
film which he is now completing the
greatest of all Indian pictures.

SITTING BULL
Chief of the Unkpapa Sioux
DIED DECEMBER 20, 1890
All around and about stretches a
dreary waste of dusty, brown prairie,
There are no other graves.
The man who killed Sitting Bull,
Red Tomahawk, did not attend the
Standing Rock fair this year.
Tomahawk was a member of the
Indian police despatched to Sitting
Bull's home to arrest him during the
Messiah craze in 1890. Sitting Bull
grew angry. Some say that he drew
a gun, or that he signaled to his re­
tainers to fire. Red Tomahawk took
no chances but drew his revolver and
fired.
