The Mille Lacs Indians were paid their annuities some five weeks ago, and ever since that time, about half of what Indians there are in the vicin* ity of the lake, manage to keep glori ously drunk. One day last week, •while three or four of the braves were on a drunken spree, they attempted to murder a white man who was camped on the south shore of the lake, looking after hay, We do not mean to insin uate that Roy and Sylvester furnish the Indians with whiskey) but we are reliably informed that parties from Rich Prairie and that vicinity, make it a business to supply the red skins with fire-water. At any rate our in formant alleges that all the drunken Indians come from the direction of Rich Prairie, and it is the general un derstanding among the lumbermen that Rich Prairie and Little Falls, are the places where the whiskey comes from.
