Osage Babies at $20,000.
The Osage Indians are tliorichos,t
people in the -world rihfough'tlie grace
of the. biS white father in Washington
and his aoviseors. There aro not very
many of them, probably not more than
2.200, counting full bloods and half
breeds, yet their per capita wealth,
counting babies, squaws nnd grown
men, is stimated to be ?-'0 000, from
which each one draws an annual income
of $5000, without, doing a lick of work.
They own prosperous wijeat farms, luc
rative oil wells, finely yeilding gold
mines. They rent out their holdings
to white men. and sit back and reap
the increment. They are in some ways
the most-to-be-enviee people on earth.
When thoj had Iheis reservation in
Kansas the land became so valucable
for wlieat and general agriculture that
the goverm'iit thought it was a shame
for the Indian to enjoy it. So thej
were bundled off and hoisted over to
Oklahoma. Their Kansas was paid for
at the rate of $1 2.5 an acre, and the
Oklahoma land was purchased for them
at 70 cents an acre, thus giving 'them a
good start in life. There was now some
thing like $9,000,000 to the combineU
account of the Osage nation, and the
ijoverjnent gaurenteed them 5 per cent
a year on it.
There ip something romatlo about it,
if we leave the sordid element out, in
the ca&e of the young white man who
goes into the Indian nation, finds his
occupation there and takes from it his,
wiie He is liwarlhly looked up to ade
respected 1 e s not called a "equaw
man tnere, aim as a ruie tunes up nis
wife's little property, uses her returns
from ihe community funds and those
of his children for increasing and de
veloping the farm land?, and succeds
on his own merit3. Sometimes, how
ever, the case is reversed and the white
wife takes up her abode with an Indian
husband and with papose on her back
may at any time be seen sleeping in
her lazy contentment, or strolling idly
about the streets. Yet this stricture
is by no means univereial foJ there are
instancesNvhere exactly the reverse is
true and Indian families are being
raised by white mothers that would do.
