AGENTSFOR Goldin Grain Belt and Hamm's Preferred Stock Mail orders given prompt and Careful Attention TECUMSEH. The braves of the Creek Nation— 6.000 Indians In all—sat In solemn council. They were lined up on the sides of a huge square. Colonel Haw kins, the Indian commissioner, wai about to harangue them. As Hawkins rose to speak, he halted, dumfounded at a strange sight. Into the hollow square stalked a tall Indian. His face was painted jet black, streaked with queer daubs of white. His half-naked body was as black and hideous as his face. Upon' his head waved a forest of eagle plumes. Behind his back dangled the tall of a newly-slain buffalo. Like some nightmare ghost the weirdly, arrayed Indian strode Into the square. At his heels were thirty other sav ages in like disguise. Around the' open square they marched in utter' silence, their leader halting now and1 then to exchange mystic "peace signs" with the more prominent of! Hie Creek chiefs. Then the odd procession vanished. No word had been spoken. Tet the Creeks, who had come to the confer-: ence prepared to join forces with thei United States, suddenly changed thelri minds. Hawkins' most eloquent pleas fell upon deaf ears. Nor could the! commissioner understand what hadi befallen. He asked the name of the! black-painted leader who had thus boldly broken in upon a solemn coun-' ell. The half-awed reply of the Creeks! was: 1 "Tecumseh!" Man Who Hated Progress. Tecumseh was bravest and wisest! of the Shawnee chiefs. He was born near Springfield, O., in 1768. When he was a young man he won fame in the campaign against General Wayne's Yankee troops. Prom boy hood he hated the United States, Nor could Gen. W. H. Harrison, the| local Indian agent, soften his hatred. He repudiated all land treaties made with the whites, and in 1808 hit upon a scheme which threatened to cheok westward progress. He planned to oombine all the warring western tribes and to form them into a mighty federation whose object was to destroy the white men. Tecumseh I was helped by his brother, "the Prophet," who accomplished a series, of neat, hand-made miracles that! made a tremendous Impression on the I natives. The great plan failed, through the| loss of the battle of Tippecanoe (at I which Tecumseh was not present),: and the baffled leader shifted to the! Far south. There he sought to stir up the tribes against the government' and to make them allies of the Brit-! Ish. For the War of 1812 was at hand.! Like a firebrand, he swept through the south. Almost everywhere hlsi Beroe eloquence drew the Indians to' his standard. In alarm, the govern-! ment tried to check this uprising. Hawkins was sent to urge the Creeks to stand firm in their allegiance to Uncle Sam. But Tecumseh was too tslever for him. By marching into the oouncil square and by the use of cei\ tain sacred Indian rites he quite! (polled the effect of Hawkins' speech.! Then Tecumseh made a fervent ap-i peal to the Creeks to cast off the' white men, to give up farming and to) turn back to their old wild life ofj hunting and fighting. He said he bore that message from the Great! Spirit, who also ordered them to side! with the British. One Creek chief, 1 "Big Warrior" by name, doubted this' and demanded proof. "I will give you proof I" shouted Te4 cumseh. "When the hour for the up4 rising comes you shall fee my ami stretched like pale fire across the' heavens. I go now to Detroit. Wheaj arrive there I shall stamp my foot* tad every house In your village Call to the ground." This was In thej autumn of 1811. In December of that! year a comet stretched across the1 skies, and an earthquake overturned! the Creek village. This was proof enough for the Creeks that Tecumseh was Inspired. A Mysterious Disappearance. Meantime Tecumseh took the fleldl with the British in the War of 1811.J He was made a brigadier-general, and at the head of thousands of native! warriors along the Canadian border) did mighty deeds against the United! States. Says one British historian: "But for the red men led by the brave Tecumseh It is probable we should not now have Canada." At the siege of Fort Meigs Tecum seh was foremost In the attack. He saved all the Amerloan prisoners! there from torture. For, although he! hated every white man, he would! never permit a captive to be torturedi or burned. Just before the famousi battle of the Thames Tecumseh laid! aside his gorgeous uniform and swordj and donned his simple hunting dress.. When he was asked why he did this! he answered simply and- fearlessly: "This day I shall die." Nor after the battle could any trace! of htm be found. It was claimed—' but not proven—that Col. Richard. Johnson killed him. But his body was aot discovered on the field. Supersti tious natives believed he was miracu lously spirited away to the happy hunting grounds. His exact fate is still a mystery. General Harrison wrote praising Tecumseh's genius for war aad statecraft, and added that but for the westward march of the white men he might have beea "found er oC aa empire that would have ri valled la glory those of Mexico aad PsnL"
