HER BRAVE TO WED
Plenty HawK Was Once Suitor
of Chicago Girl.
Miss Madeline Sullivan Hears the
News From Wyoming With Much
Indifference Love for Red
Man Is Dead.
Chicago. Talking to a reporter re
cently in tho reception room of her
mother'B apartments at 820 Crescent
place, Miss Madeline Sullivan poured
tea and recalled tho days when In
sheepskin chaps and sombrero she las
soed statuary in her mother's home
nnd sank steel spurs in the mahogany
Tho occasion was the announcement
by wiro from Sheridan, Wyo., that
Plenty Hawk, richest of all tho Crow
Indians, had taken out a license to
Miss Madeline Sullivan,
marry a former squaw of Medicine
Hat. Not two years ago It took tho
combined efforts of Miss Sullivan's
mother and tho federal authorities to
prevent the young girl from marrying
tho Indian. Following her wild prank
she roped papier macho steers and
perforated glass balls with a seven
shooter on tho vaudeville stgo for
tho edification of thoso that respond
ed to the wild west posters on tho
"I have Just returned from Palm
Beach," said Miss Sullivan, wearily.
"Really, I had forgotten all about that
childish escapade. So Plenty Hawk
Is to bo married. I am glad to hear
It. He was a good Indian, but, really,
I can't believe that ho is to bo mar
ried because I know that ho has ono
legal wife now. You see, it would bo i
nuio imposblble. I am sorry if It
prtvonts him from marrying some one
of h!s choice No, I never heard of
thi" Medicine Hat woman I don't
know whether sho Is a white woman
or nn Indian.
Miss Sullivan read with renewed in
terest the dUpatch from Sheridan,
which carried the information that
Plenty Hawk had taken out a licenso
to marry Mrs. Medicine Top, but that
one Catholic priest had refused to
marry the couple becauao they lacked
permission from tho priest on the reB
orvatlon Plenty Hawk's brido to bo
was decked out in a costume
valued at $5,500, which was said to
contain several thousand elk teeth
.woven In cloth.
"It was all a grand prank," she said.

Poor old Plenty Hawk! I thought his
hills and forests, his horse sand blan
kets, were all there was in tho world
onco. I liked to sit a horse and gallop
away make tho dust fly and shoot
in the air. Of course, I know bettor
now. No, I won't comparo tho con

of a squaw's tepee. That isn't neces

to marry If ho can. Ho was quaint.
I wish him worlds of happiness, back
