Death of Mrs. Frank
Brunette.
On Sunday morning the people
of this village were shocked to
learn that Mrs. Frank Brunette
had suddenly died. Mrs. Brunette,
before her marriage to Mr. Frank
Brunette, was Miss Pbilomena
Giard. It has been learned that
Mrs. Brunette had been in poor
health for over a year and, just
previous to her death, was arrang
ing her affairs preparatory to go
ing to the Fosston hospital for
treatment.
Mrs. Brunette was a person of
exceptional womanly qualities, in
dustrious and a model housekeeper,
a constant and charitable neighbor
and a devoted and affectionate
wife.
Besides her husband she leaves
an aged mother and several sisters
and brothers to mourn her early
demise. She was a devoted mem
ber of the Catholic church, from
which place the funeral was held
on Tuesday morning.
HE TOMAHAWK joins with her
many friends in extending sym
pathy and condolence to the bethe
reaved husband and family.

Indians Invented Cam
ouflage.
"Camouflage is as old as the
storm god of Indian folk lore,"
said Chief Strongheart, who re
cently returned from France where
he is credited with having done
more for the fighting traditions of
his race than any other American
Indian.
"The Indians were the true in
ventors of camouflage," said the
chief, who will go to his Yakima
reservation in Washington state
after a brief Eastern visit. "They
discovered its advantages in their
earliest conflicts. When a battle
was to take place in a forest in the
summer months, the warriors
would paint their bodies green,
with a dash of other colors to
produce the exact blend with sur
roundings. They even sketched
birds and sraail animals ou their
bodies to make the effect'more
realistic. If the battle was to take
place when autumn had withered
the leaves and touched them into
gold, splashes of brown and yel
low made the warriors blend with
setting.
"The trick, wherT artfully
turned, resulted in great victories.
Many early bettlers were taken
into captivity by u&e of camou
flage.
"The Fnnch were quick to
visualize its enormous advantages
in the war just closed and prompt
ly carried the art to its peake."
Chief Strongheart was rejected
by the army because, as a leader
of Indian scouts in the service of
the United States in Mexico in
1910, he received a shot in the leg
in a skirmish with Mexicans. Be
fore being wounded he killed two
Mexicans and took seven prison
ers.
Realizing his un6tness for mili
tary service, the chief toured
America for army recruits. After
an address in front of the Newgrapher
York public library one day 233of
men enlisted. Two hundred more
volunteered in New Jersey and
Massachuetts. Heading west from
New York, he spoke in large cities
for the Liberty Loan and War
Thrift Stamp drives. During his
campaign he wore his native dress,
including the head feathers.
Chief Strongheart says that over
18,000 American Indians went to
France with the Americau Expe
ditionary force, most of them serv
ing as scout. He cited an incident
where five Indians enabled the
Americans to capture 13,000
prisoners.Ex.

"I can't live properly on $75 a week,"
complained the young man. "Yes, you
can," said his guardian. "The real
trouble is you want to live improp-
erly."
Favors Absolute Abstention.
A recent report of British experts
favors absolute abstention from
strong drink, but supports the use of
light wines and liquors.

Encouraging Fact.
I
I know of no more encouraging fact
than the unquestionable ability of man
to elevate his life by a conscious en
deavor. It is something to be able to
p:iint a particular picture or to carve
a statue, and so to make a few objects
boar.tiful, but it is far more glorious
to carve and paint the very atmos
phere and medium through which we
look, which morally we can
