10 THE OlttAHA DAILY BEE : SATURDAY , JtftftjS 12 , STORY OF TREMBLING HAND , i. General Brisbin Tells ft Wild Weird Tale of the Border. A BEAUTIFUL WYOMING LEGEND , Which , IT Not True , Out-lit to bo True on Account of the Kino Moral It Contains. Crazy Woman's l , Nob. , June 10 , 1880. [ Correspondence of the HKR. ] When wo JnU parted \\llh the reader wo were oamped on the Hig Beard river , or Craay Woman's fork of 1'owdor river , and pro mised we would relate the legend of how the valley ami stream received their Btrangc nntno. It was n bo.-tuUful stream , broad , rollIng - Ing and shaded by cottonwood trees. On the bank In a clump of those , completely shutting out the hot rays of the sun , stood our camp. The valley along the river win wide and fertile and flocks at prairie liens nnd ducks rose from the long grass nnd flow nwny In all directions. Dedr , nntclopo nnd elk bounded over the hills , nnd far in the distance could bo seen n drove of what we took to bo wild horses , I ooitld not help wondbi ing how soon this wild scene would bo changed , and the smoke of the white ( nan's cabin ascend nil along the rich valley. Alrcidy I saw , in imagination , grain growl .ig on the elopes , farm houses nestling among the trees , n vilhigu in the great bend of the great stream , and I thought I could hear the tinkling of cow-bulls , the laugh of lit tle children at pliy and the solemn toll ing of church-bolls. La Frombo had told Bcldon the legend of the Crazy Woman and Uuldon told it to mo. I shall relate it just as I hoard it , neither vouching for its truth nor deny ing its probability. The alory is quite probable and not more strange than many other legends told of the mess. Tin : J.EGINI : > OF CKAKY WOMAN. "Many yours ago. " said La Krombo to IJoldi'ii , "I visited this snot with a band of Crows , and one evening a venerable Indian told us this legend of Crazy Woman. Terrs ago , " ho said , 'when my father was n little boy. there came among us n man who was half whlto. He said ho wished to trade with our people for bufl'ulo robes , beaver , elk nnd door skins , and that he would iTivo us much paint , nnd many blankets nnd pieces of cloth in exchange for furs. Wo liked him and be lieved him very good , for ho was rich. having many thousands of beads and hundreds of yards of ribbons. Our vil lage was then built on the river , about twenty miles above where wq are now. nnd game was plentiful. This river did not nt that time have the name of Crazy Woman , but was called Big Heard , be cause n curious grass grows along its banks that has a big board. What 1 am about to relate caused the name of the river to bo changed. "Tho trader built a lodge of wood nnd stones , nHd near it a great , stivrng house , in which ho kept nil his immense ! wealth. It was not long until ho had bought all the robes and furs for sale in the village , mid then ho packed them on ponies and , bidding us good-bye , said ho was going far to the cast , where the paleface lives , but that ho would soon como back , bring us man } ' presents , andplentyof blankets , beads and ribbons , which ho would ex change as before for robua and furs. Wo were sorry to see him go , but , as ho prom ised to return in n few moons , wo % vero much consoled. It was not long until .our spies reported something they could not understand coming into our country , and the whole village was in a great state of alarm. Some of the boldest ventured out and re turned with the joyful intelligence that the strange objects our young men had scon wore the trader and his people. All the village ran to meet him , nnd the sight was strange enough , indeed. The Crows in these days had never soon a wagon horse or ox , nnd the trader had brought nil. these things. The wagons they called teepees on rollers ; the horses were giants beside the little ponies , and the oxen all believed were tame DuU'alo. There also was a squaw , who was per fectly whlto. and who could not under- fltnnil anything that was said to hor. She wore dresses down to her feet , of which she seemed to be ashamed , and ' our women said she tied cords tightly about her waist , so as to make it small. She had very longhair , and did notnlait , but rolled it , and , instead of letting it hang dovfn , wrapped It tightly about nor head. "It was not long until the trader had nil his wagons unloaded , and his store open. Ho had brought all the women beads anil ribbons , nnd the men brass rings. Hosidesvhut he. sold , lionuulu mniiy presents ; so everybody loved him , for no ono had over before scon so rich and generous a man. "Ono day , ho told the big chief to como Into the back part of the store and ho would show him something wonderful. The chief wont , wondering what it could bo , and when they were alone , the trader drew out a very Ifttlo barrel , and taking n , wooden cup , poured out some black- looking water , which ho told the chief to drink. The chief did as desired , and im mediately felt so jelly ho asked for more. The trader promised , if ho would never' toll any ono whore ho got the black , water , ho would give him all he wanted. The chief promised , nnd the trader gave him another cupful. Now the chief danced and sang , nnd went to his lodgo. where ho foil down in a deep sleep , and no ono could wake him , Ho slept so long , the warriors gathered about the ledge wondering whatooutd ail him , nnd they were about to go to the trader and demand to know what kind of medicine ho had given the chief to make him behave - have bu > strangely , when the chief woke up and ordered them nil to their lodges , nnd to ask no questions , "Next day the chief wont to the trader , nnd said ho had had great dreams ; that * ho thought ho had slain many ot his enemies , and that the black medicine must IH very good to make him have such pleasant visions , Ho begged the trader to give him some more , and ho did .so. Thus the chief did everyday , and all the village wondered , for they believed the trader had bewitched him. In former times the chief had been n qulot and very digniliod man , but now ho sang , danced in the street , and pub licly hugged the women , so every ono thought him crazy. The Crows disliked the conduct of the chief very much , and began to grumble ngainst the trailer , for they thought he was to blame for the great change that had como over their chief. Some said ho was bewitched , others that the trader had an evil spirit in one of his boxes , and thus they talked , some boliovinir ono thing nnd some another , but all blaming him. One of the young warriors called a secret coun cil , and the matter was discussed , and it was finally decided that the trader must Jcavo or they would put him to death. A warrior , who wns a great friend of the trader , was scut to toll him of the de cision of the council , and when ho did so thn trader lauijlied , and said if ho would como into the back of the store , and never toll anybody , ho would show him what ailed the chiof. The warrior went , and the trader gave him a ladle full of the black water. Presently lie be gun to sing and dance about , nnd then t < n went tAit into the street and sang , which greatly surprised every ono , for ho'had never done so boforo. The young men . gathered about him , and aakou him what ftiled him , but ho only fluid , 'Oh , go to the trader nnd get some of the black water ! ' So they went to the tnxdor and Inquired what kind of black water ho had that nfloctcd people so strangely ; nnd the trader told them ho had only the same kind of water they drank , and brought out his pnil that nil might drink. Kach wntiior took up the ladle and drank the same , nnd mndo Iho trader drink the same , and then they snt down to wail and see If it would nfl'ect them like the chief and their brother warrior ; but it did not and they rose un and said , The trader or our brother lies , and wo will sec who la Iho liar.1 They went to the warrior's ledge and found him. sound niluop , nor could they wako him , and the others went to their teepees. When the sun was up the warrior rose , and. seeing the others sitting in his tent , said , 'Why nro you here , my broth ers ? ' And Iho oldest , of the two warriors replied , Toil have Hod to us , for the trader hns no bladk water.1 The warrior recollecting hi * promise hot to tell , said ! 'It Irt true that the trader has no black water , nnd who said ho had1 They explained to him his con- duet of the day before , nt which he was greatly astonished , and ho declared if such was the case he must have been very sick in his luiad nnd not known what ho had said. Thereupon the warriors with drew nnd reported all to their brethren. The warriors were gronlly perplexed , and know not what to do or think , but decided to wnlt nnd see. "The chief nnd warrior were now drunk every day , nnd the young chief called another council , It was long nnd stormy in its debate , nil the Wise men speaking , but no oilo giving such counsel as the others wotllu nccopt. At last a young warrior rose and said that ho had watched and that it was true the trader had a black .water which ho gave the chief nnd tno warrior to drink , for he had made n hole in the wall of the trader's store , and through it saw them drinking the black water. Hoadvijcd them to bring the trader and warrior together before them , and ho would ac cuse them to their face of what ho had scon , nnd if they denied the truth , ho would fight them. "This speech was received with great .satisfaction , and the young chief at once sent some warriors to fetoh the trader and their brother. "When they were como into the council and seated , the young warrior repeated all ho had said , and asked if it were not true that they would light him. The warrior who wns ( Irst asked rose up and said the young warrior lied , and that ho was ready to light him ; but when the trader was told to stand up anil answer , ho , seeing there was no use in denying the mnttor , confessed nil. "Ho said the black water was given him by the white people , a great many of whom drank it , ami It made them behave as they had scon the chief and warrior do. Ho also told them that after n man drank of it ho felt happy , laughed and sang , nnd when ho laid down ho dreamed pleasant dreams and slow his enemies. "Tho curiosity of the warriors was greatly excited , nnd the young chief bade the trader go and bring some of the black water , that they might taste it. Ho was about to depart , when the young war rior , who had before spoken , rose and .desired . him to be seated , when ho said : " 'The warriors hoard my speech and it was good. The brother however , when I asked him if ho would tell the council the truth , said I lied , and ho would fight mo. Let us now go out of the village and fight. ' 'Tho'young chief asked the drunkard if ho had.anythimr to say , when ho arose and addressed the council as follows : " 'Ohmy brethren.it is true that I have drank of the black water , and that I have lied. When the trader first gave it to mete to drink , ho made mo promise I would never tell what it was or where I got it , and ho has many times since said if I told any ono ho would never give mo any more to drink. Oh , my brethren , the black water is moat wonderful , and I have come to love it better than my lifo or the truth. The fear of never having any more of it to drink made mo lie , and 1 have nothing moro to say but that I am ready to light. ' TUB I'IGIIT OF THE TWO WARRIORS. "Then the council adjournedand everyone ono went out to see the warriors fight. They were both men of great skill and bravery , nnd the whole village came to see the battle. He who had drnnk the black water was the best spcarsrnnn iu the tribe , and qvcry ono expected to see the other warrior killed. "Tho spoara were brought nud after they were given to the combatants it was beou that the hand of him who had lied shook so ho could hardly hold his spear. At this his friends rallied him nnd asked him if ho was afraid. Ho replied that his hotu't was bravo , but that hU hand trem bled , though not with fear , for it had shook for many davs. "Thon the battle began , nnd at the second end throw of the spears , ho with the trembling hand was clove through the heait , and killed instantly , while the other warrior did not oven receive a wound. 'After the fight was over , the warriors nil wont to the trader's ledge , and ho brought out in a pail moro than a quart of black water , which ho gave in .small quantities to each warrior. When they had swallowed it they began to dance and hiug , and many Jay down on the ground and slept ns though they were dead. "Noxt day they came again nud asked for moro black water , and so they came each day , dancing and singing , for moro than a week. "Ono morning the trader said ho would give them no more black water unless they paid him for it , and this they did. The pricn was at first ono robe for each sup sufliciunt to make thorn sloop , but as the black water became scarce. two robes , nud finnlly three were paid for n sloop. Then the trader said ho had no more except a little for himself , nud this ho would not soil ; but the warriors bogged .so hard for some ho gave them a sleep for many robes. Even the body robes were soon in the haudsjof the trader nnd the warriors were very poor , but still they begged for moro blnetc water , giving a pony i" exchange for each sleep. The trader took all thu ponies , nnd then the warriors allured their squaws , but there was no moro black water , and the trader said ho would go and fotcli somo. "Ho packed all the robes on the ponies , and was about to set out when a warrior made n speech , saying that now that lie had all their robes and ponies , nnd they were very poor , the trader was going away and would never return , for they had nothing moro to give him , So the warriors said lie should not depart , and ordered him to unpack the pomes. The trader told them ho would soon return with plenty of black watbr , and give it to thorn as ho did nt first. Many of the warriors were willing ho should depart , but others said no. I'.ml ono declared that he had plenty of black Water still loft , and wan going oil' to trade with their enemies , the Sioux , This created OUUA.T bXCITEMKNT , nnd the trader's store and all his paoKs were searched , but no black water wns found. Still the warrior assorted ho had it , and that It was hidden away. The wariiors declared that they would kill him unless ho inetantly told them \yhoro lie hud hid it , and upon his not being nblo to do so , they rushed into his ledge nud MURDEUUD HUt before the eyes of his squaw , tearing off his scalp and stamping upon his body , This so alarmed thu white > quaw thatsho attempted to rffu out of the lodge , and , ns she carao to the door , a warrior struck her on the head with his tomahawk , and she fell down ns though slio were dead. "Tho chief made a great speech , saying that now , as the trader was dead , they would burn his lodge and take back all .their robes and ponlos. So THE : LODOB WAS FUtED , niiJ as It.burned a Crow squaw saw by its light Iho white squaw lying before the door , nud that she was not dead , and she took nor to theloilgo.sewed up her wounds nnd gave her something tp eat. The squaw lived and got well , but she was cra/y and couldnotbcarthosighlof a war rior , believing orcry ono who came near her was going to kill her. "One day the white squaw wns missing , nnd the village turned out to look for her. They followed her track far down the river , but could not find her. Some women out gathering berries n few days nftcrwards , said the white squaw came to them and n kcd for food , showing them , nt the same time , where she was hiding in the bluffs near by. She bogged them not to toll the warriors whore she was , or tlioy would come nnd kill hor. Thd squnws tried to dlssltndo her from a notion so foolish , but they could not get her ( o relurn to the vlllngo. "Every day the squnwR went and took her fi edt and" she lived for Inany months , lib one knowing where she wns but the wdhleiii When tiio warriors came nboiit Bho hid n\vny nud v\ould \ not stir until they worn gono.

She wns never seen ngalu , nnd what became of her is not known , although It is likely she died of hunger , or that the wild beasts destroyed hor. " "Ever afterwards when the Indians came here to camp , they told the story of the yra/.y woman , nud the place became Known as "tho place of the crazy woman , " nnd the mime of "Uig Beard" was almost forgotten , oven among the Indians , while the white people called the stream entirely by the name of "Cr y Woman's Fork , " and the valley - ii'rjrazy Woman's Valley " n JAMI.S S.

The Extraordinary Cnrecrofft Young Ulrl In Imily Blcsslngton's Salon. Forty years ago , in 1840 , at the ultra relined - lined receptions of Lady Blessiugton , says the London correspondent of the Now York Sun , a young French girl , in troduced by n friend of the hostess , laid the foundation of her future reputation in fortune tolling. It was Mllo. Lo Nor- mand , the modern pythoness. Lady Bless- ington , who bad boon informed by her Parisi.xn correspondent of the miracu lous gifts of her protege , determined to try her before she could have become - como acquainted with any of the persons prcbont , or even assortaincd their names. Three men were successively brought to her. To the first , after examining his hand , she said : 'Tour life will be a happy and successful ono ; you will die old without pain ; but on one occasion you and ono of your children will mi- racuously escape destruction. " To the second : "It seems almost incredible , but I would say to you in the words of Shakcspoaro. 'Thou will bo king bore- after. ' Yes , sir , you will reign. ' " After gazing into the palm of the third the young girl shivered , grow palo , and dropped his hand. Quickly rallying , she informing him thatsho had seen nothing worth repealing , and loft his side. But the sumo nitrlit. before leaving , she im plored Lady Blesslngton to distrust her guest , saying , "He wul commit murder nnd bo sentenced to death. " These tnree men were Charles Dickens , who , in 1804 , returning from abroad , was in the horrible rail way accident of Staple- hurst , and escaped unhurt ; the MS. of "Our Mutual Lriend , " his oft'apriug , en closed in a small hand-bag , was found upon the track amid the debris and re turned to the author. The second man was Prince Louis Napoleon. No com mentary is noodad. The third was Charles Wainwright , then a most promising paint - t > r , who afterward murdered his wife with the most revolting cruelty. Ho was condemned to death , but the queen com muted his seutenco to transportation for lifo. lifo.Dosbarolles Dosbarolles , the great French wizard , has chosen this opportune moment to leave the world ; sooner ho might have passed awav without even the slightest notice. Ho was not rich , having lost nil his fortune in the failure of a bank , and because , as ho said , "he had not dared to ask permission to examine the hand of the manager. " Ho used to receive his cljonts in n room of daz/.ling brightness , with curtninlc s windows , the light com ing in full from the sky , the gnulons nnd above the roofs. Uesbnrolles laughingly explained : "My attic is the ante-room of the constellations. " In 1805 a very young Creole , Mllo. Autard do Bragard , came to consult him. "Whom shall 1 marry ? " "A man whoso position will bo universally envied. " "A millionaire ? n pnnoo ? " "Bettor still. " Four years later the young girl became Mine Ferdinand do Lossopa.

His career of seventy .years was remarkable for It3 many sac rifices and the noble work ho did. At the ago of twenty , while yet a student , ho met Garibaldi , and the acquaintance ripened into a friendship that ondcd only with the death of the hero. Dr. Prnn- dina early acquired great fame as a physician nnd surgeon , and when in 1857 the cholera struck Milan ho could bo seen day and night going in and out of the most wretched houses of town , ranking the poor his especial care as ho did until lie died. So it is llttto wonder that they idolized him and ho was known far and near as "tho poor man's friend. " After 1800 ho never left Garibaldi , going through every campaign and battle at his side and caring for his every want. 'Ihen after the death of thegencral , it was Dr. Prnndina who , when the body was cre mated , gathered the ashes of his mtioh- Iqvcd friend and cared for them. Then his work for the poor recommenced , and no man in northern Italy could claim friends than this " ' more "nature's noble- nian. " The body .of , the deceased was interred at Mionn , , near Lecco , and the car that carried it from Milan was liter ally covered , nt oa6h station , with flowers aim crowns of ftmmSrtolIes , thrown by the crowds of weeping people gathered to pay a last tribute to the man they loved THE SrlNO RACES took place MondHy afternoon and the sight around the tnick was a very beau- titul and animated one. 'Die wealth and fashion of Milan fcerti well represented by the occupnuts'tif lite handsome equip ages , and the beiiuty'of the women was remarkable. Instead of having jockies , as wo do in America , the gentlemen rode their own horses , wearing the colors presented them _ _ by .some dark-eyed stgnonna. The 1'jtces amounted to noth ing , for the horsesthbugli many of them were very handsome , wore evidently hot meant for the track , ana the men rode abominably. DRESS. Many of the prevailing fashions in dress seems very odd to us. Bronze tics or low shoes are very popular for street wear nnd the old-fashioned , broad- brimmed Leghorn straw hats , loaded with plumes , are much worn by ladies of fashion. Red is conspicuous by its absence , and a Milanese lady just re turned from Paris created n great sensa tion the other day by appearing on the Corso in her carnage in an entire suit of cardinal cashmere. It is so warm already that ginghjuns , satins , and silks are in general use. THE IUOUt.AH : OPERA SEASON attho La Scala has just ended , but four more orchestral concerts are to bo given , nnd the other opera houses and theatres do not close until some time next month. Last night wo hoard "Trovntoro" given nt the Dal Vermo. Wo were hardly seated when our attention was drawn to the peculiarity of the immense cur tain over the footlights. It waa a mass of advertisement shoots , of about the same irregularity of shape and variety of color that one notices in the patches of the average crazy quilt. It was rather disconcerting , while sitting in anticipa tion of a purely artistic treat , to bo ob liged to note that "Luigi Don Giovanni Gabbia put up the bc.it sausngo in all Italy , " and that "Singer's Bowing ma chine oil" and "the best cholera preven tive" were to bo found side by side on the Piazza del Duonio. The performance on the whole wna good , and , though the artists were strangers to Milan tnontro- goers , the applause throughout was vehe ment nnd lengthy. Thorn arc only two tiers of boxes in the Dal Vorme , ami between the acts wo could sqo in tiio gallery - lory above us an odd bit of side play. A man wandering ui > and down the aisles with a basdot h'lled with bottles of mineral water , would bo relieved of ono by the father of a family. The bottle would bo immediately passed to the small "hoir apparent , " who , after having tiuped and Hipped ( with the utmost dis regard of all conventionality ) from the neck of the bottle , would pass it to his mother , who repeated the performance with gusto , and in duo time wo were re lieved to sea the long suffering article reach the father , who good , naturcdly drained the drugs , and g.ivo a copper piece , equivalent to two American cunts , to the imtiont attendant.
