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 waters. 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 up stream. 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 it disappeared. 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. Fred Patterson. For Sale. A number of fine White Plymouth Rock roosters at 75c each.

This firm slaughters most of their own meat and their steadily growing bust ness has forced them to carry larger stocks of meats on hand. They found their old wagon and equipment en tlrely too small to handle the stuff economically and with the end In view of handling the business In a more systematic manner they have Increased their facilities.

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 Promoted 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 tion hand. 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 News. For that Terrible Itching.
