Kiii); Hill Notes.
King Hill, NVb., Feb. 25. 1909.
A recent find brings up a little his
tory that I think will be interesting.
Years ago B. S. Ramsey's famous
Indian chief called his warriors to
gether on King Hill and gave them a
great talk and said In part:
'The white man has driven us
away from the land that was ours,
they say that they bought it from
our fathers for a few dollars. How
could our fathers sell what the Great
Spirit put here for us to live on.
The white man came, a timid sup
pliant, and asked to lie down on the
red man's bear skin, and warm him
self at the red man's fire, and have
a little piece of land to raise corn
for his women and children. And
now he is become strong, and mighty.
and bold, and spreads out his parch
ment over all, and says, "It Is mine."
There Is not room for us both. The
Great Spirit has not made us to live
together. There is poison in the
white man's cup; the white mnn's
dog barks at the red man's heels.
"We have, left the land that was
ours, we have followed the setting
sun, we have crossed the rushing
waters of the great Muddy, we are
free. The white man will not come
here. They are afraid of these black
Warriors, look at the buffalo, the
deer, and the antilope, look at the
wild turkey at our feet. The
squirrels are in the trees above our
heads. All these the Great Spirit
has put here for the red man."
When the chief had said these
things his warriors became uneasy.
They were looking down the river
where a little cloud of smoke could
be steen. The chief looked In the
same direction and became uneasy
The cloud of smoke came nearer and
nearer, until It could be seen that It
was something on the water coming
The chief turned to his warriors
and said: "The red man's canoe
could not come up like that. It is
the white man come to drive us
still further back. I will not go and
leave all these things for the pale
face. I will stay here."
He became very angry and rising
up in his pride he gave one tremend
ous kick at civilization and his foot
separated from his ankle and went
flying over the tops of the trees and
was lost from view. He sent his peo
ple on the hunt for the missing foot
but they could not find It. He re
fused to be moved and they built a
tepee over him. He refused to eat
or drink, and his spirit soon went to
the happy hunting ground.
They burled the chief on King Hill
In the summer of 1855 Thomas
Patterson moved to Nebraska cross
Ing the Missouri river at Kenosha
and located above King Hill. A few
years after a man that was boarding
with Patterson opened the grave and
took out the skull and it was left at
his house for a number of years, then
At the beginning of the eighties
Mrs. Thomas Patterson and daugh
ter Mary were living in Peru, Neb.
and a man gave a lecture at the Btate
normal school (I did not learn his
name). He used the chief's skull
in his lecture and claimed that it
was given to him by Thomas Patter
son of Rock Bluffs, Neb.
I was walking around King Hill
a short time before the holidays this
winter while the water was very low
and close to the edge of the water I
saw a peculiar shaped stone, dif
ferent In color from any that was
near It. I dug It loose from the
sand and rocks and found to my
surprise that it resembled the shape
of a foot. It does not show the
toes, it looks more like it had been
petrified with the moccasin on. The
stone or petrified foot will be left at
the Journal office for a short time.

Cut Off by Snow.
St. Francis, Kansas was one of
the stations on the Burlington road
yesterday cut off from the world by
now. It was said the drifts filled
the cuts for twenty-five miles east
of St. Francis, and that a snow plow
was stuck near Wheeler on that
branch. St. Francis has had no
mall, express or passenger trains in
or out since Monday, and the pros
pects that trains would get through
today cheered the Inhabitants. The
snow there was said to be the heav
iest In many years.
Passengers on tho Burlington
train stuck in the drifts near Page.
Neb., were taken back to O'Neill
yesterday at noon after spending tho
long night in the cars. They had
been well cared for and were taken
out as soon as It was possible to trav
el overland. The rotary snow plow
began drilling another path through
drifts on the O'Neill line yesterday
afternoon. The Burwell line was
reopened yesterday. State Journal.
H. W. Sheridan of Burlington Is
Veteran officers and employes of
the Burlington and older citizens of
Lincoln will be interested to learn
of the promotion of H. W. Sheridan,
a former local railroad man, to the
responsible position of superinten
dent of the Sacramento division of
the Southern Pacific.
Mr. Sheridan now is at the head of
the most important 'division of the
Southern Pacific system, and he
draws a salary of $500 a month. He
Is about 50 years of age. Mr. Sheri
dan during his more than thirty
years of railroading has served in
both the transportation and office de
partments besides being once a sec
He was born and reared on a farm
near La Crosse, Wis., and at the ten
der age of 13 years he was thrown
on his own resources and at 15 he
was teaching school. He entered the
railroad service when he was 18
years of age, becoming a freight
clerk for the Northwestern at Cash
ton, Wis. Here he learned teleg
raphy. Sheridan first struck Lincoln as a
switchman and secured a job with
the Burlington.- His ability quickly
brought promotion, and In less than
a year he was made night yard mas
ter. He was a giant In physique and
had more than ordinary ability as a
boxer. During the troublous times of
the great strike of the engineers and
firemen of the road, Sheridan was
called on to show qualities bordering
on the heroic, and his ability to de
fend himself with his fists caused him
to be known as the "fighting yard
master." Many a striker was polished off by
Sheridan, who would not fight unless
he was compelled to. A militant
body of switchmen at the time that
Sheridan was boss of the night yard
brought his fistic prowess into good
play. Many a belllgerant follower of
a switch engine was tamed by his six
footer, boss and made to be amiable
and tractable In the future. While
Sheridan was a strict disciplinarian,
he was one of the kindest and most
approachable fellows in the service.
He was always willing to help anyone
In trouble, and no employe of his
ever came to him for a legitimate
favor who did not get it. Lincoln
