and saw fOur young women standing j
upon - the- furniture, saying "O-o-o-o-
oouch! It's coming! Look out!" and
■retching a large, tame ferret on the j
'floor, frightened out of its wits. The
lieutenant took the poor creature in I

Local Press Club Takes Formal Ac
tion in He; in em bra nee of a
Veteran Member,
Carl Neuhausen. for thirteen years a
journalist in St. Paul, died yesterday
afternoon at his home, 301 Sherman
street, after a painful Illness of two
months. It was about that, time that
there appeared in Mr. Neuhausen's
throat a malignant tumor, which de
veloped rapidly. Four local surgeons,
headed by Dr. Arnold Schwyzer, did
everything known to modern medical
science to allay and delay the ravages
of the malady,' even to the injection of
new virus, cultivated recently In . the
European universities and brought to
this country especially. About three
weeks ago the malady assumed such
seriousness that Mr. Neuhausen was
unable either to lie down or to eat solid
■ food. Yesterday afternoon, after
drinking a cup of chocolate, he sat
down to read a" newspaper, when his
head suddenly fell forward and death
was Instant. « *-:-, ... -
The relatives of the deceased deter
mined to hold the funeral Tuesday
afternoon from the residence. The pall
bearers will be newspaper men, their
selection being left to president Dodds,
of the Press club, of which organiza
tion the deceased was an active and
honored member. The club was in ses-
I sion yesterday when the news of Mr.
Neuhausen's death was . conveyed to
his old associates, and Mr. Dodds, after
making the announcement, appointed
H. P. Hall, A. G. Braver, E. H. Dearth,
and John E. King a committee to at
tend the funeral of Mr. Neuhausen, to
arrange for the presentation of a floral
tribute, and to prepare a memorial ex
pressive of the club's loss.
This was before the arrangements to
have newspaper associates for pall
| bearers was made made known, and
: the names will probably be given out
j today. ' . "•' '- "" -' ' ■' '■
Carl Neuhausen was fifty-six years of

i town of Neuhausen, near the falls of
I the Rhine, In Switzerland. He served
| as an officer in the Prussian army, In
j the war of 18G6, and afterwards resided
! in Paris. His Democratic tendencies
' led him to come to America in 1867,
and he began a long and active jour
i nalistic life in Wheeling, W. Va. The
! scene of his energies was afterward
! transferred to Pittsburg, from which
city he came to St. Paul, where he has
been connected with the staff of ."Die

Pros* Club Memorial to It* Deceased
A regular monthly meeting of the St.
Paul Press club took place yesterday
afternoon. President G. W. Dodds, of
the Dispatch, occupied the chair, while
S. Conday assumed the duties of sec
retary in the absence of J. J. Ryder.
The report of the benefit committee
provoked extended-discussion. It was
agreed that a performance for the ben
efit of the club be given at a local the
ater on Friday, May 1. Features of
the performance will probably be sup
; plied by artists from the following the
' atrical companies: The Frederick
' Warde company and Hill's Vaudevilles,
which will be playing then in Minne
; apolis; the John Stapleton company
j and John H. Burkes "The Doctor"
company, which will be at St. Paul.
j In addition to these features, many
\ strangely startling and stupendous nov
elties are promised to augment the my
riad joys of the occasion.
J. M. Hawks, of the Dispatch; George
F. Gifford, of the Globe, and W. C.
Handy, of the Pioneer Press, the com
mittee previously appointed to prepare
a memorial on the death of Cornelius
H. Murphy, presented the following,
which was unanimously adopted:
Cornelius 11. Murphy, a member of the St.
Paul Press club, who died on Feb. 22. at Lake
Charles. - La., had been for years con
j nected with the business offices of the St.
] Paul Daily Globe and the St. Paul Dis
: patch, and as superintendent of advertising
: for many years of the Glob c, and for a
. shorter period of the Dispatch, had become
. widely and familiarly known to the business
, men of St. Paul, and the best and truest
{ eulogy that can follow him to the grave is
„ that every one of them was his friend. In
1 losing him, his fellows of this club, and of the
, newspaper calling, miss something of cheer
j fulness, of unfailing kindness, of willingness
, and devotion to duty.
An able man. Air. Murphy was still an
, apostle and messenger of cheerfulness, kind
j ness and courtesy.
Whether he spoke few words or many, or
j seen only for a moment, there was that in his
eye. in his face, that left an impression of
! sincere friendliness, and one parted from him
as from an old and dear friend. He was, for
| the amiability and Quick courtesy that were
Instantly expressed in his face and bearing,
'• always a welcome visitor, whether on busi
ness or as the social guest of a leisure hour.
All through the lingering sickness, which
at last ended in his premature death, he was
patient to an exemplary degree, courageous
; arid hopeful, and to the limit of his waning
; strength persisted in the active work of his
I ad' crtising business.
| Ac an advertising man, filling the most ex
acting position that a newspaper, affords, and
requiring a high grade of ability, he baa had
tew equals in St. Paul.
During all absence from the city In his
search lor health," the many earnest Inquiries
tor his welfare evidenced the esteem in which
he was held in this city, and when the news
of his death came from distant Louisiana
there were expressions of sorrow and regret
on all sides.
Without exaggerating his virtues, without
forgetting the lessons of his cheerful and
brave arid manly life, we, the members of the
St. Paul Preaa club, commend his soul to his
Maker, and promise, each to the other, to
cherish his memory.
—J. M. Hawks.

The secretary was instructed to send
to Mrs. Murphy an engrossed copy of
the memorial.
These new members were elected: W.

A deed of assignment of the personal
property of Patrick H. Kelly, founder
and principal partner in the P. H. Kel

The action is not precipitate, nor is
it a surprise to those who have been
familiar with the poor health of Mr.
Kelly for a year past, and the burden
of his affairs upon him in such a phys
ical condition. Mr. Kelly is now a
very sick man. Indeed, he himself has
been impressed latterly with the belief
that his recovery is not to be expected,
and that his death is to be a matter of
a short time, at best. In view of this
feeling, and considering the immense
area embraced in his business affairs,
and the fact that they are considera
bly involved, he decided to put his mat
ters in the way to an immediate set
tlement through an assignee, rather .
than to leave them for the probate
court. Mr. Kelly's interest in the P. H.
Kelly Mercantile company is so largo
and his personal interests are so close
ly associated with those of the firm
that it is understood that an adjust
ment of the company's affairs will soon
follow. It can be stated, however, on
the authority of one who is thoroughly
familiar with the affairs of the com
pany, that it will pay every obligation
dollar for dollar, and have remaining a
handsome cash surplus.
Chicago Expert Discusses the Re
cent Minneapolis Fire.
W. C. Robinson, sprinkler inspector
for the Chicago Underwriters' associa
tion, was sent by its manager, H. H.
Glidden, to Minneapolis to view the
ruins of the recent elevator fire and
report. He addressed Mr. Glidden thus:
"In compliance with your instruc
tions I visited Minneapolis March 5,
and made a careful investigation of
the fire which destroyed the Minneapo
lis Terminal elevator, 'A 2,' paying par
ticular attention to the part played by
the Grinnell sprinkler equipment, with
which this elevator was equipped.
"The elevator was 170 feet high, 39
feet wide, and 240 feet long, with de
tached boiler and engine house, and
was equipped in 1893 with about 1,450
Grinnell sprinklers, two dry pipe sys
tems. The primary source of water
supply was from two pressure tanks,
each having a water capacity of 3,000
gallons, one tank being located ln a
companion elevator, 'Al,' about 160 feet
distant. The secondary source was
from a Knowles underwriters* fire
pump, having a capacity of 1,000 gal
lons per minute, and taking its suction
from a cistern of about 50,000 gallons
capacity. The cistern was filled through
a four-Inch city connection. The equip
ment also received an additional source
of water supply through a six-inch
city connection from a sixteen-inch
street main, furnishing about 80 pounds
pressure at grade. '•'
"The failure of the sprinklers in this
fire may. be attributed to the following
conditions: '
"First The rapid spread of the fire, due to
the open stair shaft, the draught, and the
highly inflammable condition of the dusty
"Second— The slowness with which a dry
pipe system of this size, with an air pressure
of forty pounds or over, must necessary act.
"Third inability of sprinklers to prop
erly spray all sides of the shaft with a suffi
cient volume of water to extinguish a fire
having any great headway. Tills is due to the
fact that the sprinklers were placed about
seven feet from one wall and under the stair
landings, which are on one side of the shaft,
thus allowing a fire In the open space occu
pied by the main belt to burn up by the
"It is also probable that the action of the
sprinklers was retarded somewhat by the fall
ing of the remaining system at the same time,
or shortly after, the action of the system pro
tecting the stair shaft. The cause of the fire
is not known, although the most probable
cause seems to be from the steam pipes for
protecting the water connections, or the spon
taneous combustion of waste or dirt on these
pipes. The machinery had not been operated
for forty-two hours previous to the fire. This
fire again calls attention to the necessity of
providing several substantial cut-offs or hatch
es In all open stairways, belt, shafts, or open
communications between the first and bin
floors of a grain elevator. In a sprinkled
elevator this- is absolutely essential, as the
open communications between floors, large
areas, and draughts all tend to place the
sprinklers at a disadvantage. The dry pipe
system in elevator equipments are often very
much larger and the air pressure maintained
In the piping very much higher than neces
sary, which materially affects the promptness
with which the system will act in case of fire.
The equipment should also be divided across
the elevator instead of lengthwise, as was the
case in the Minneapolis elevator, as the
chances for the operating of two systems at
one time are materially lessened under the
former arrangement.
"While the conditions in the sprinkled ele
vators ln Chicago are not as serious as ex
isted in 'AS.' still the placing of proper cut-'
offs in the open stairways and the installing
of additional sprinklers under all such cut
offs is a precaution which should be taken as
soon as it is possible to do so. Improve
ments of this character have already been
commenced in several of the Minneapolis ele
E. Burton Holmes* Lectures Not

s ....
E. Burton Holmes.' the talented young
lecturer, will close his course of lec
tures at the People's church Tuesday,
March 17, and Thursday, March 19. The
genuine merit of these lectures was
discussed in the Globe of yesterday,
and the fact that there are still two
more to be. delivered, instead of the
course ' having already terminated,
should be taken advantage of by those
who have not heretofore heard Mr.
Holmes.. The subjects being "Through
the Real Japan" and "The 1 Cities of
Japan." Unlike most-Japanese travel
ers, Mr. Holmes did not confine him
self to the beaten path, . but toward
the interior of the, country, securing
views entirely unfamiliar to the aver
age traveler. He will give the expe
rience of a tramp of over 300 miles
through the interior provinces, these

magnificently colored stereopticon
views, the production of Mr. Holmes'
own camera. Tea houses and flower
gardens are shown, and cherry blos
soms of a pink- hue make one think he
had been transported to fairyland. The
beauty and variety of the scenes which
pass in review upon the canvas beg
gars description. Lofty mountains out
line against the asure sky, heights
draped with autumnal foliage, lakes by
moonlight, sunset scenes, rich valleys,
grand cascades, whirling rapids, fair
ly enrapture the beholder. Those who
fail to attend these lectures will surely
miss a rare treat.

Rut William Drew Forced Himself
Into That Commit re of 100,
It Is. .Whispered.
Gen. Moses E. Clapp still heslttates
about declaring himself a candidate for
governor. It is said that he is waiting
to come to some understanding with
A. R. McGill as to whether or not the !
latter is after the nomination. If the j
ex-governor wants it bad enough to
make a fight for it, Gen. Clapp will
not enter the field, unless it be to help
out MOGUL If, on the other hand, Mc-
Gill doesn't want the nomination, or
is doubtful of succeeding, then Gen.
Clapp wants to try his strength.
"Gen. Clapp can | secure a solid dele
gation from Ramsey county," said a
local politicial worker yesterday. "That
is, of course, if McGill doesn't want to
run. McGill can have the delegation
if he says so, otherwise Clapp can get
it. With Ramsey back of him and
some strength from his home district,
Clapp can make a fair showing before
the convention.
"But as a matter of fact, while I
would like to see Clough beaten, I am
convinced that it is not going to be
possible to do it. If he does not go Into
the convention with enough votes to
nominate him he will in all probability
get them after a few ballots. You see,
each man will feel that this will give
him a chance to try again in two years.
On the other hand, if any one of the
aspirants, finding that he could not be
nominated himself, threw his strength
to one of the other men, it would mean,
in all probability, that whoever he is
he would be given a second term,
which would make it four years to look
forward to. For that reason, if for
no other, I do not believe that a com
bine can be made against Clough that
will stick or defeat him.
"Berg, In view off the census work
and other breaks he has made," . said
the same gentleman,, "could doubtless
be easily defeated for a renomination;
but, for that very reason, the man
who might beat him would feel that
he is establishing a precedent for a
single term, which no one would care
to do. Hence I think Berg will be
given another term."

A curious story is related as to how
the list of that committee of 100 which
was chosen, by Itself, to take care of
the simon-pure Republicanism of Min
neapolis, happened to bear the name of
William D. Washburn. It has been
supposed generally that William was
one of the instigators of the movement,
even if he was not the chief dispenser
of pens and ink for it. The latest
story Is to the effect, however, that. not
only was .William Drew not a leader
in the movement, but his presence was
a source of annoyance to the real lead-'
ers. Their scheme was to get up .the
list without the name of the ex-sen
ator, but one of the young men, to
whom was entrusted the circulation of
the petition, chanced to solicit the sig
nature of a prominent Republican
while the ex-surveyor general was seat
ed in the office. When the signature
of the man in the office was solicited,
Gen. (?) Washburn pricked up his ears
like a superannuated fire horse startled
by a street car gong, and was anxious
to get back in the game from which he
had been ousted. The die was cast.
The young man either had to submit to
the signature or burn the petition, and
they do say that some of them wished
since that he had touched the match.

A happy augury of the vigorous
Democracy to be expected of the Sixth
ward was seen in the attendance, en
thusiasm and harfnoiiy exhibited at the
first regular meeting of the Sixth Ward
American Hebrew Democratic club at
249 East Fairfield' avenue last night.
President A. MaTgulas and Secretary.
Max Cohen performed their respective
duties. It was' announced that the
club already numbered 137 members.
Joseph Smith advised the club to sup
port the regular ' nominees. He also
announced that he was a candidate for
re-election as justice of the peace, and
he was unanimotislyyindorsed. Will
iam Hanley urgent tiie laboring man to
port the party, which befriended
them, and enlarged on the necessity for
a rigid inspection of candidates. He
invited those present to attend the
meetings of a neighboring. club organ
ized in furtherance of these purposes,
and eulogized the" principles of the
Democratic party. • Vice President J.
A. Goldman hoped that the Sixth ward
would acknowledge the wisdom of the
convention and zealously support its
nominees. Abraham Tolstenog, speak
ing first in English 'and then in He
brew, gave convincing proofs of the
past recognition accorded his race by
the present city government, and em
phasized the necessity for aiding the
party that accorded such recognition.
H.W. McDonald, treasurer of the Young
Men's Democratic club, invited all to
attend the banquet to be given by his
club Saturday. It was resolved that
members of the Sixth ward club be for
bidden to join any other political club
during the campaign. Thanks were
extended to Judge Smith for the loan of
furniture used in the club room, and an
adjournment taken until next Sunday
evening. - •

Elder Phelps Finds Some Traits In
the Devil.
"Is There a Devil? Who or What
Made Him Such? Why Was He Not
Destroyed at the Beginning of His Ca
reer?" This was the theme of discus
sion by Elder W. .F. Phelps, at the
Wacouta street chapel last evening.
The speaker contended that there was
just such a being as the Scriptures rep
resented, called the devil, and Satan;
not such a being as superstition has
represented him to be; an evil genius
provided with horns and hoofs, and a
tail. , „
"There have been instances in the
history of this world," said Mr. r>helps,
"when men who gained a living by
plunder, outlaws, who, in order to
throw the public oft! guard, secured
the publication of their own death. It
would seem that in this they only pat
terned after the master they were serv
ing, for the devil has so successfully
worked upon this plan, that at this day
the masses of the people do not believe
that there is a devil. All to the greater
success of his plans in the ruin of souls.
"Why was he not destroyed as soon
as he entered upon this course of re
bellion? The answer is evident. If
Abraham Lincoln had freed the slaves
at the beginning of the rebellion of
the. Southern states, he would have
gone down to posterity as a tyrant.
That Satan had charged God as being
a tyrant, and His laws as being arbi
trary, is evident from the fact that he
aspired to be like God. It was equal to
saying: 'Give me the position of the
Most High, and I will give you a bet
ter government. I will give you bet
ter laws, laws of justice.
"Now all the universe of God is in
terested in the final result of this con
test. And, as' in the rebellion in this
country, time was needed to develop its
inmost spirit, so of that great rebellion.
Time is needed that it may be evident
to all intelligences that God is just,
and that obedience to his requirements
is the only course that can possibly
lead to everlasting life and happiness."
First Dap! Ist Church Revival a
Glorious Success.
The special revival services which
have been in progress for the past two
weeks at the First Baptist church have
proved so successful that they will be
continued, during this week. Meetings
will be held each evening except Sat
urday. Rev. J. W. Conley, the pastor,
will preach, and will be assisted in
the work by Rev. C. C. Markham, who
will conduct a prayer meeting for half
an hour before the evening service,
to which new converts and workers are
especially invited. C. D. Northrup will
continue in charge of the music, which
has proven one of the helpful features
of these meetings. As. a result of the
services already had five were baptized
last evening. This brings the member
ship of the church, for the first time
in its history, above the 500. mark.
It Is Discussed nt Plymouth Church
. '..-.- Mass Sleeting-.
An interested congregation assembled
at Plymouth church yesterday after
noon to participate in a platform meet
ing held in the interest of the Associ
! ated Charities of St. Paul. The object
of the special services, as stated by
Rev. Watson B. Millard, in introducing
the speakers, J. F. Jackson and Mrs.
C. G. Higbee, was to enable the people
of the city to become more familiar
with the active workings of one of the
most worthy philanthropic organiza
tions. The association of charities was
not a new idea, said Rev. Millard, but
one which had occupied the attention
of the public from earliest times. The
system of dispensing charity had, how
ever, been so well regulated, and the
field for charity had so widened that
it had been deemed wise to shed some
enlightenment upon this great sociolo
gical problem. Dr. Millard then in
troduced J. F. Jackson, secretary of the
Associated Charities, who said:
The Associated Charities Is a mutual asso
ciation of forty-five local charities. It In
vestigates applications for relief, registers all
persons receiving relief, furnishes Informa
tion concerning applicants for relief, conducts
educational work along philanthropic lines by
means of its public meetings. Its parlor con
fernces, Its literature and its reference 11
--i brary.
The success of the Associated Charities has
! been gratifying to the friends of humanity
I here and elsewhere. When Kansas City was
i to organize its charities a business man
I wrote to Secretary Hart for full details of
i our organization a*Kl methods of work, say
ing that he had been Informed that St. Paul
had one of the most perfect and effective or
ganizations in- the United States. Similar
compliments have recently been paid by Wil
mington, N. C, and Brooklyn parties.
Whether Jew of Christian, St. Paul sees a
duty to humanity— to reduce Its suffering
and to try to restore the unfortunate to nor
mal conditions. It recognizes the fact that to
be effective Its efforts must be concentrated.
This Is especially true as the city grows in
years and in size.
The Associated Charities is economical of
administration; because, by conference and
contact, the various societies tend to special
ization in their work; because combined
strength can provide trained Investigations
much cheaper than each societly could pro
vide for itself; because it determines if there
really Is need; if so. Just what Is needed. We
often find there is no need; or, less articles are
needed than were asked for; or that the need
is not such as to be best aided by the society
requesting investigation. It is economical
because when it becomes understood that an
application means an investigation, unworthy
applications decrease, and Instead the appli
cants make better provision for themselves.
Under the separate system in some cities
there are sometimes two, three and even four
Investigations of a case by separate societies
before It reaches the right one. The effect
upon the applicant of repeated inquiries is
Following Secretary Jackson, Mrs.
Higbee, who has long been engaged In
the work of "friendly visiting," spoke
upon that phase of the question, as
applied in this city. Mrs. Higbee said:
"Friendly visiting is the most natural,
unofficial and effective method of help
ing the less fortunate of mankind. It
is the work of the individual for the
individual, and Is divorced, so far as
possible, from those material things
which make up the outward circum
stance of life. It is taking thought
for others. It is help-giving, not alms
giving. It deals with character. . It
centers in the individual with the view
of so educating and Invigorating that
he shall, after a while, have power to
change his own environment. The
friendly visitor must have patience, for
character is not made In a day. She
adopts but one or two families, wins
their affection and confidence and en
deavors by personal influence and
practical suggestions to improve their
condition. She is not a 'friendly vis
itor" because she pays a few friendly
visits, leaving the family much as she
found it. She brings the very best of
herself to the home of the unfortunate.
What she is, rather than what she
does, Influences and promotes the wel
fare of her family, yet she neglects
nothing which will aid In developing
self-respect. She will encourage and
assist every able-bodied member of the
family to get work, and it often hap
pens that those who have rejected
work from many sources take It and
keep it under the watchful eye of the
friendly visitor. She will know how
the youth of the family spend their
days and their evenings, with the hope
of preventing associations such as have
been made known to us recently
through the work of heroic women. She
1 realizes that the home must be im
proved. She carries her convictions
with her and works out, in her own
way, the problem of health, virtue and
happiness in the family she has adopt*,
cd. For convenience, the feminine
pronoun is used, but many wise and
sympathetic men are engaged In this
work. Friendly visitors confer once a
week and get advice and encourage
ment from each other, and often prac
tical aid."
Recently Found In a Field Near
>lin via Luii. .
Jacob Hardacre, of Devil's Lake, told
yesterday at the Clarendon hotel, that
he saw last week, in the hands of a
farmer named Olson.residing near Dev
il's Lake, an old, rusted sheath knife.
Upon its scabbard's brass ferrule were
the words: "Lieut. Freeman, St. Cloud,
1562." The knife was found in a neigh
boring field last fall, having been un
covered by a heavy rain. Some re
cent inquiry on the part of the finder
has led him to believe, as he told Mr.
Hardacre, that the knife is a relic of
Gen. Sibley ; s famous expedition against
the Sioux Indians.
Judge Woods, of this city, was seen
at the Merchants' hotel by. a Globe
reporter later in the day, and asked, as
a survivor of the same expedition. If
he recognized the name on the knife
"Lieut. Freeman? Why, I should say
I did. Any old settler almost will re
member him. The lieutenant's death
was one of the most notable and tragic
incidents of the expedition. You see,
he came from St. Cloud, and was a
lieutenant in the Minnesota Rangers,
as part of our cavalry 'was called. The
expedition moved along somewhat after
this fashion: A line of wagons several
miles In length occupied the center.
There were 400 wagons. Their snake
like path, their number, and the great
clcud of dust hanging constantly above
them are not. easily forgotten. In front,
behind, and on either side, was a regi
ment of infantry. Although we were
passing along a prairie that seemed as
free from' inhabitants as Robinson Cru
soe's island. .Gen., Sibley maintained the
utmost watchfulness, and entrusted the
guard duty to the cavalry, which
stretched along for a considerable dis
tance from the rest of the expedition.
Game was to be seen every few miles,
but not a soul was allowed beyond the
cavalry lines. One day, however, when
we were near Devil's Lake, Lieut.
Freeman and a companion were given
special permission to go hunting. The
companion was ' our beef contractor,
George A. Brackett, now of Minneapo
lis. His position was an important
and remunerative one, considering the
size of our force and the length of its
stay in a hostile country.
"Well, Freeman and Brackett started
out early in the afternoon. About four
miles from the expedition they went
down into a little coolie, or gully, after
some game. At once a dozen Sioux In
■ dians jumped from cover, and deliv
ered a volley at short range. Freeman
was struck just here, in the throat, and
the judge pointed to his Adam's apple.
'I'm shot dead, Brackett! Take the
gun,' said the lieutenant. He- reached
the gun over to Brackett, and slid off
his horse. Brackett hadn't been touched.
He turned ' his *horse, galloped away,
but waited for a shower. of bullets that
didn't come. The Indians wanted
Freeman's horse more than Brackett's
life. They chased the animal down on
foot. Then Brackett, some distance
away, jumped from his horse, and took
to the underbrush at" the edge of a
small lake, which was. near. As he ex
pected, the Indians caught his horse,
and then came back .to catch him. He
had loaded his two guns, and was pre
paring for a right to the death. But the
Indians halted. A smoke they recog
nized was rising from the dust of the
expedition in the distance. The boom
of the batteries followed. Gen. Sibley
had uncovered the enemy in force, and
was shelling them out. Brackett's as
sailants started at once to the help of
the main band. Brackett crept' out of
the brush after a while, and, traveling
by night, reached, in a week, a hospi
tal camp left fifty miles behind. That
evening a party sent out to look for
the hunters found Lieut. Freeman, half
naked, his scalp torn from his bloody
skull, and his head split open from the
forehead to the chin. The next day,
myself, with others, came upon the
body of an Indian torn. to pieces by one
of our shells. He wore leggings rough
ly made from the buckskin trousers
cut from Freeman's legs. Fastened to
his belt ' was Freeman's scalp. The
lieutenant was well known here and ln
St. Cloud, and I've no doubt that the
knife you mention belonged to him."
