There are several cxc2llent reasons
why the world is interested in Elaine
Gocdale, once the child poetess of the
Berkshire Hills, now the wife of a
typical Indian of the Sioux race. The
red n.fn has been her ouly lover, and
she followeil the promptings of her
heart, defied conventional usage and
overcame by earnest pleadings and ;ir
gunents the objections that at first
nr.turally arose among the members
f her own family to such a union.

pas not. ja new one to Elaine. Her
sympathies with the Indian rae,
wliich had been developed by the
teaching-of some Indian pupils at Gar
lisle and; Hampton institutes in the
East, had induced her in lioo to ac
company Senator Dawes on a trii
through the Indian reservation. She
had been particularly interested in her
observations at Pino Bulge Ageucy.
s nd it was there that she determined
to devote her life to the .mprovenuut
of the Indians of the West. She soon
after became a government tea-jher in
Dakota, and in li$K) she was appointed
superintendent of all the Indian
schools in South Dakota, being sta

that she first met her future husband.
He had only a short time before been

Thus as a former resident of Pine
Ridge, the young wife found herself
surrounded by familiar objects and by
the friendly faces of the people of her
adoption. Her interest in the welfare
of the Indians, always keen, was now
intensified, and she labored earnestly
in their behalf. Dr. Eastman's duties
frequently compelled him to be absent
from home for several weeks at a time.
On many of these journeys his wife
was his companion, and, although
.these journeys were marked by priva
tions, hardships and fatigue, she never
uttered a word of complaint. Her en
thusiasm in the cause she had espoused
overshadowed every obstacle, and she
labored unremittingly in the cause in
which she had enlisted. Her womanly
traits were developed during these try-
I ing ordeals, her courage arose to every
, emergency, and the approval of her

enough for any social sacrifices she
may have endured.

meeting, held in Philadelphia, adopted
a resolution condemning- the "docking"

the fact that nature surely intended
the tail as the animal's defense against

tail is a useful appendage, bu; those

cruelty to animals will be delighted to
have the duly recorded support of such
an authority as the Veterinar3 associa
