On the occasion of Mrs. Converse's pres
entation to this Six Nation council It had
met to prepare a remoiist ranee against the
Nuw York assembly bill No. 511, which
had for its object thu abrogation of thu
treaties existing between tli Inillatis anil
thu United States. At these, governmental
councils -tho highest courts of the Indians

also thu "lire keeper" of the Oiinuilagas,
presides. At this special meeting the O11
omlngus, Keticeas, Tunearorns, St. Regis,
Oueldns anil Tolinwaudii Seneeas went
lepre.seuted by their head chiefs and sn
cliems. On thu morning this council was called
a runner or delegate was eommlssioiieil to
notify .Mrs. Converse that shu was Invited
to thu council. Accepting this unusual
honor, shu was conducted by thu runner, u
Suneeii chief, to thu council room, and was
received by President Sachem Daniel L11

motirdy grnutcd n voice in the council and
a seat was assigned her at thu "east door,"
with thu Seneca delegation. This distinc
tion was tendered to Mrs. Converse in rec
ognition of her iiulefatlgablu zeal In oppos
ing thu hill No. 511, which as a consequence
was adversely reported or "killed" by thu
assembly committee, on Indian nlTnirx.
In a stirring address .Mrs. Convene ro
cited to the council thu rights and wrongs
of their people for thu p'ist UK) years, ap
pealing to thu Indians to stand fast to
gether and endeavor for n whllu longer to
remain thu possessors of thu lauds of their
fathers. Thu adoption of Mrs. Converse,
into thu Iroquois nation is considered by
thu Indians a bond as sacred and legal as
It thu tlu was one of birth and blood.
Mrs. Converse, by adoption a great-granddaughter
of Red Jacket, claims an inherit
ed right to thu honor. Thu naming and
adoption by the Seneca Indians of her
grandfather took plaeu in 17W, and of her
father in 1M)I.
Tho Altitun of Hypnotism.
In view of thu reckless practice of hyp
notism by soma "professors" of thu acquire
ment, a movement lias been set afoot In
England and America to secure appropri
ate restrictive legislation on thu usu of this
modern "black art." Tlio British Medical
Journal says "that reliable information is
at hand that several physicians of stand
ing aru traveling in England under as
sumed names and practicing hypnotism
upon all applicants, regardless of risk to
health and life." Issue must bu taken as
to tho "standing" of theso fellows. They
belong In thu list of assassins, not in that

In the interior basins of tho Rocky
mountains, and especially in the Yellow
stone region, the wear of waters In the
ages long past, and of wind ami driving
sand since thu waters subsided, has carved
the isolated rocks into shapes that seem
like nature's burlesques of living creat

given thu uamu of "hnodoos," and after

We wure waiting at HinNilalo Junction,
which Is in Missouri, and is at tho crossing
9f three ill He rent railroads. I was sitting
an n dry goods box on tlw platform along
with a man whom 1 took to he a drummer
when a third man came up and borrowed
a light for his cigar ai.'d sat down. Aftur
some general talk he said:
"Confound this delay! I am mighty anx
ious to get down to Ripley."
"Marriage?" (purled thu man bcihlo me
"No. They had a big robbery theru last
night, and want mu to eatcli tlio thief. I
sin the slierlir of this county."
"Do tell!" exclaimed my friend. "I
thought as much when I lirst looked at
"Why should you?"
"Well, you've got thu eyu of a hawk and
th ojuraguof n tiger, or I'm no judge of
human nature. You'd lie about tho hut
man l'tl care to play roots on."
"Havu a cigar?" asked tlio niieriH as lia
extended a couple, and it was easy to seo
that ho was tickled all over.
Wu talked for an hour or so, and then
his train tamo along and he boarded it for
Ripley. He was no sooner out of sight
than my friend sal tlowti and laughed
until black in the face. Of ourso I in
luireil thu cause of his hilarity, and he
finally .siils'i-ed up and replied:
"Won't you giviilt away?"
"Hope to tlio If you do?"
"Well, I'm the robber and the identical

And liu went o(T Into another lit which
listed two or three minutes, and which ho
recovered from to say:
"Got all the mviii in that sacliul ami can
