Aged Indian, Friend Of
The White Man,
Aberdeen, S. D,An important
page in the history of the North
west pioneer days was turned re
cently when Job Nmayppte, an
Indian chief and government
scout, always a friend of the white
man, died at Big Coulee, South of
Peever, S. D., of old age.
Born at Mendota, how long ago
he never would tell. Job's life
story was that of the Sioux Indian,
pushed back from post to post un
til finally corraled on the reserva
tion under government agents.
His quaint personal reminiscen
ces, which he never tired of tell
ing, would have furnished valu
able acquisitions to the history
annals of Minnesota and the Da
At the beginning of the out
break of 1862, Job was out on the
war-path against the Chippewas
Upon reaching the village which
marks the present location of Big
Stone, S. D., he heard of the up
rising and hurried to the Yellow
Medicine agency in Minnesota,
where he found the Indians in
their war paint about to massacre
the whites and mixed-bloods be
cause they would not assist in the
war. Quietly, by night, Job
smuggled these whites and breeds
from the cabin in which they
were held prisoners, and hurried
them down the river in the boards
he had collected.
A few days later Little Crow
and his band of Sioux reached the
agency and went into a council of
war over the fate of other mixed
bloods who had come into the
camp, but who refused to partici
pate in the uprising. Hearing that
the wily chief and his friends were
planning to massacre these breeds,
Job put his gun under his blanket
and stalked to the council meeting.
Entering Little Crow's tepee,
Job demanded if it was true that
he proposed killing the mixed
bloods. Little Crow denied that
this was his intention. However,
Job went back to his tepee, threw
up breastworks that night, gather
ed the breeds behind them, and
stood guard himself all night.
The next morning Little Crow
and his bund left, and a couple of
days later the entire band surrend
ered to General Sibley.
It is generally known that 38
Indians were tried and hung for
participation in the uprising, but
few people know that over 400
warriors were imprisoned at Man
kato, Minn., for four years.
Among these were Job and his
band.Ex. Today's Indian

lieving, as I do, that when he

modern world his achievements
will enrich and brighten the civili
zation of his native land."
During the last few years a
rapid change has taken place in
the factors which make up the In
dian problem of the United States
Indian government. There are no
longer any war-path Indians, and
for the main part the elders of the
red race have forsaken the old
ways and are attempting to follow
the paths of the whites. It is hard
for the old men and the old women
to give over the habits of a life
time and to rid themselves of in
herited tendencies. The older In
dians, however, are dying, as all
people must die, and the problem,
therefore, concerns itself largely
today with the young.
The effort of the bureau of Iu
dian affairs is to provide for the
proper education of the children
and the grandchildren of warriors
and hunters who only a few years
ago were free to roam the woods,
the prairies and the mountains,
and to whom restraint was un
known. The Indian problem will
solve itself as the elders pass away
provided the United States gov
ernment does its full duty by the
children of the people whose land
it usurped and whose right gener
ally trampled into the ground.

Deafness Cannot Be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot reach
the diseased portion of the ear There is
only one way to cure deafness, and that is
by constitutional remedies Deafness is
caused by an inflamed condition of the mu
cous lining of the Eustachian Tube When
this tube is inflamed you have a rumbling
sound or Imperfect hearing, and when it is
entirely closed. Deafness Is the result, and
unless the Inflammation can be taken out
and this tube restored to Its normal condi
tion, hearing will be destroyed forever nine
cases out of ten are caused by Catarrh,
