Minnesota Trail Blazers. (Concluded from Ist page ) ed them and wafnecT them not to trespass upon this, “their greatest medicine (mystery) olace, where it seems, tho had often resolved no white man should ever be allowed to go.” Nevertheless, the white travel ers pressed on until they reached a “perpendicular wall of close grained compact quartz, of twenty five and thirty feet in elevation, running nearly North and South will) its face to the West, exhibit ing a front of nearly two miles in length” beautifully colored in rose and gray and “highly polished or glazed.” Below was a level prairie “in any or all parts of which, the Indians procure the red stone for their pipes by digging through the soil and several slaty layers of the red stone, to a depth of four or five feet.” For some unknown reason Cat lin and his companion were allow ed to return to Fort Snelling un molested by the Indjans. A piece of the red stone was sent by the artist to a Boston chemist, who declared it to be a new mineral compound and gave it the name, “catlinite.” Impressions of the quarry and an account of his wanderings in what is now Minne sota were included by Catlin in a profusely illustrated work which he published in 1841. Pawnee Indians Were Whirlwinds in Battle. The Pawnees were never disci plined in a military sense. On one occasion when they were to start on a scout early in the morning, three days’ rations had been issued to them." They ate every ounce that night and had nothing to eat until the afternoon of the second day, when they shot a few ante lope. They obeyed orders and sugges tions preliminary to a combat, but in a charge or sudden attack they reverted to their own methods and were whirlwinds in a fight. Major North has stated that in an engagement near Wood River, Neb., where the Sioux were com pletely surprised, the scoutes charged, firing their repeating carbines, flung them aside when enipty, used revolvers in the same manner and wound up the light with bows and arrows. They had to go over the field afterwards to recover discarded weapons. I saw the command as they passed through Julesburg, writes E. T. Scoville in Adventure Magazine, they had eight scalps decorated and stretched on hoops. The next night I witnessed their scalp dance It was the most thrilling savage rile I have ever seen.
