whlto cutitlvo from Pennsylvania.
Wlien tlio French llrst trnverfied tho

front north to Houth, but tniverpcd by 11
mualler liiovoment from eiwt to west.
Tho first Indians they know in tho
WiiImhIi country wero tho II leoneo, or
Il.Mnl (lneanlng "real men," n nelf lluttor
lug tltloHavngonatloiiH often tuko), which
tho French transformed Into tho inascu
lluo plurnl Illluoln. Down iioii these
cntuo tho Mlatnls from tho far northwest
tradition traces their courso bade to
northern Iowa and soon they dominated
both uldos of tho Wnbnsh, their vnrloua
bands known as Weans, Twlghtcrs,
PInnkeshnns, etc. Among them enmo tho
Pottnwnltomles, ft ferocious nico from tlio
wooded, wilderness north of Lnko Huron;
but leaving only a remnant on tho Wnbasli
thoy tunied to tho west. Meanwhllo
tlio Wmi-pii-mick-co, or Icnnl.Ionni)09,
whom tho first Hettlors lu Penn
Hvlrnulu named "Delawares" becnuso
thoy mot thorn on that stream, wero
Blowly retrwitlng beforo tho over ndvnuo
lug whites, ncross Peunsylvnnln mul Ohio
they fell back till thoy occupied coutral
Indiana, and as lato ns 1810 Anderson
nud KlUbuck, Dehnvnro chiefs, ruled tho
region whero lndlniiapolls now Is. Then
their westward march was resumed
across Illinois nnd across Missouri, thon
thoy halted for n filial homo In tho lovely
Delnwaro reservation In Kansas. In
1855-05 clvIll7Jitlon ugnln crowded on
them nud they abandoned their tribal or
ganization, nud to tho number of 1,500
took "head rights" In and beenmo citizens
of tho Cherokee nation.
Tho KlcJtnpoos halted long and left a
remnant among tho Miamls; tho main
part continued westward, finally dissolved
their organization nnd wore for tho most
?nrt absorbed among tho wild trlbefl of
ho Rocky mountains, Puro blooded
Klelcanoos nro stll) iii?t U Mfxleo, ntlll
Implacably liostllo to whlto Alucrl
cans. Tlio Mlugocs, after their ex
pulsion from West Virginia and
tbo adjacent part of Ohio, drlftod
to northern Indiana. Tho Shou-au-nohs,
or "Exiles," driven from their
original Beat on Lnko Erlo by tho Now
York Indians, wero allowed by th& Mia
mls to pass through tho lnttor'u country
and went to Tennessee; thonco they wero
driven again to Florida, whero tho Bit
wanoo rlvor nttosts their resldcnco and
gradual chango of name. Driven again
by tho encroaching whites, they returned
In throo bauds to tho Ohio and Wabash,
and tho band known as Shawncoa located
along tho Wabash from Shawneo creek to
tho Tlppucauoo and beyond. Tlio Miamls
denied them a real tltlo to tho lands, but
tolerated thorn aasouottors, and this baud
produced tho eclobrated Tecumsch and
Klkswatnna "Tho Prophet." Another
band of Shawuees went to Canada; To
cumseh Incited thorn to fight tho Ameri
cans, and, cheering them on at tho bnttlo
of tho Thames, dlod as becamo a warrior.
Of course all theso trlbos occasionally
captured whites, and when not too old tho
capHvcs generally bocnino thorough In
dians, for tho wild life Is natural to man,
and whllo It take.i twenty years to civilize
an Indian a smart whlto boy can go wild
In six months. So thoro wero a few
Anglo-Indians and many Franco-Indians
In all tho tribes; and tho first settlers re
marked with some, surprise that tho whlto
captives avoided them qulto oa much ns
tho Indians, nnd somo say more. Their
Indian relatives oxplalncd that thoy wero
"afraid of being taken back to tho whites."
In 1838 tho Miamls, having shrunk to a
moro band, located on a reservation In
Miami county, Ind. Col. E. U. Ewlng, a
trador, met an old woman known as She-pu-cn-uah
near Peru, and somo years after
wroto an account for tho Pennsylvania
papers, of which this is an extract:
Thoro la now near this place, among the
Miami tribo of Indians, an aged whlto woroou,
who a few da) s ngo told mo whilst I lodged lu the
camp with herone night that sho was taken away
from her father's homo, on or near tho Susouo-
lianna river, when sho was young, say from 0 to U
years old, she thinks, by the Delaware Indians,
who were then hostile to tho whites. Sho snys
her father h naino was blocum; that ho was n
Quaker, rather unall la statures aud w oro a large,
broad rimmed hat, hod sanilr hair, light com
plexion, nnd was much freckled; that ho lived
about half a mile from a town whero tbcro was a
fort, In a wood house two storied high, and had a
spring near tbo house. 6he say s three Delaware
camo to the houso In the daytime, when all wero
absent but herself and perhaps two other small
chtlJrcu. Her father aud brothers wero looting
hoy, Tho ludlaus carried her off aud sho was
adopted Into a family of Delawares, who raised
her aud treated her as then- own child.
Mr. Isaac J. Slocura, uear Wilkesbarro,
Pa., at onco recognized it nsthocasoof
his aunt, who was stolifu at the ago of 5;
bo her brother Isaac went to Peru and
identified tho captive by a ecar which ho
caused In boyhood by au accidental cut.
Her memory revived In conversation with
him and her Identity was completely estab
lished. Then her remaining brother, Jo
seph, aud her only sister, Mrs, Mary Town,
visited (ho woman in 1837; but sho had
takon tright nt tho gossip among tho In
dians that all captives wero to bo returned,
and peremptorily refused to sco her rela
tives till tho authorities gave her an as
suraucc that eho could remain lu Indiana.
Thoy rcmulncd uomo time nt her homo
near tho mouth of the- Mlssisslnowa, aud
wero much charmed by tho manners and
friendly conduct c-f their relations of tho
half blood, for Francca had fourduughtors
living and Bovcral grandchildren. Sho do
tailed her Ufo (11 'captivity, -Assorting that
ho had always lived lu plenty and linppl
ncsa among tho Indians. Sho was rnp.
turod hi 17i0 near Wilkesbarro, Pa., nud
died In 18-17 nt an advanced ngo.
In 1810 tho Miamls rollniiulshcd tholr
tltlo to tholr remaining lands lu Indiana,
excopt the trncts reserved for such ns
choso to becomo citizens, nud tho organ,

Cincinnati, 0., Oct. CI. In tho western
part of tho glorious state of Indiana, about
twenty-fivo miles north of tho handsomo
city of Tcrro Haute, tho broad nnd fcrtllo
plateau drops rather suddenly to tho level
of tho Wobn-sh, tho descent being somo
two hundred feet In two or threo miles.
Tho natural result 13 that tho afilucnt
streams flow rapidly over rocky and grav

which, lined na they nro by romantic cliffs
nud ovcrhuug by magnificent timber, nro
thodellglit 01 tho natives thereabouts.

Well, ono of theso email streams has In
Its batiks n Btratum of that peculiar limy
clay, of n bluish whlto color, which
housowlvcs lu tho .early duy used for
whitewashing; and when lu 1850 n turn
pike was constructed down this hollow,
masses of this tough clay of nil falzes wero
thrown Into tho ditches by tho roadside
With each rain and local flood they rolled
down stream till they becamo perfect
globes, taking up on their way a coating
of fino whlto sand. Finally tho bed of tho
stream was changed by other Improve
ments, and many of theso globes wero
left high and dry on n sand bar. Tho

When tho war ended Indiana took a

Finally, somo of them were tent to nn

for ho has suited nobody else.
