! remember "Wuppcr-Jnw John," tttti
grny-hulrod Winnebago, who, wlton I
was a boy, used occasionally to visit the
tiolghtorhood In which I lived, Despite
hln strikingly (.Informed nnd ugly face,
people who know him seemed always to
In) kindly disposed toward him. They
tought his curiously-wrought willow

food and a night's lodging.
Hla face wos angulur und deeply
wrinkled; tho under Jaw wns not with n
curious twist on ono Ride, nnd It t witched
and grimaced, grotesquely whnn ho

Ho was a harmless old follow, with u
good deal of shrewd sense . Ho wn tin

worthless, begging vagabonds, who, to

Inffj and was never known to 1hjx, ul
though, llko other wandering Indians,
ho carried hU "pnpers,' a lot of written
toMtiniontnla certifying him to Ihi "a

Atthladato lean not, of rotirno, nn

John'a narrator had told of hU hravo
and humane exploit, hut tho iuoldontH

It wuh in Juno, 1tCM, HOeral weekn
after tho outbreak of tho Saca nnd
Foxos, rotuoinlHind as tho lllack Hawk
war, that Waiior-Jaw John rendered
heroic Horvk'o to a venturous llttlo fam
ily of sot Hern In ono of the narrow val
leyn among tho lduffs opjoslto Sauk
1'ralrle. At this time, according to
Smith's "HUtory of WUeonMn," tho
Hacs and Foxes "had scattered their
Watrartlc8 all over tho North, from
Chicago to Galena, and from tho Il
linois river into tho Territory of Wis
vonaln. They occupied oery grove,
waylaid every road, hung around evury
settlement and attackod every party of
white men that attempted to penetrate
This condition of affair lasted nearly
A month, compelling, aettlera on all
hands to gather inWaelvca and their
effects at fortified points and into
hastily-constructed block-houses. Yet
In this perilous time one family, u
young mau mid hln wife and cilld,w hose
home was upon the eitrvmc northern
frontier, wen living in complete Ig
noranco that there was any Indian out
break. Karly in tho previous April James
Vtrootor had moved up from Northern
Illinois with his small family, nnd had
aeiiicu upon a squatter oiaitu in a pocHoi
' ft the lllack Earth valley. Ho had tht
,., property usually possessed by tho
tfaoyer" upon the fro&Ucas in those
Hy. H consisting of f yokti ut oxen and
fc j gvpgim, cow or two, uomo chickens and.
l few alaiplo household utetiHlU.
After their arrival upon the claim the
youif MtUer and his wife were kept so
VUy Jl bul41ng a small cabin asA la
clearing, breaking up and planting a
small patch of ground that thoy found no
tlmo to cultivate acquaintances in a re
glon whern their nearest neigh bors were
nearly twenty mllos distant.
As the coming of this family into tho
region was unknown to thn other set
tlers, its members failed to receive
warning from thn couriers who spread
tho news of lllack Hawk's uprlHthg
among (hn bills south of thn Wisconsin
river. Fortunately for thn Hlrenter
family, Its whereabouts was also un
.known to tho hostile Indians, tho rnbln
being it lltlln Niyond their usual rattgo
Tho lnnband and wlfn worked on un
disturbed until n cabin had been built,
and three acres of ground thoroughly
broken up and planted to corn, potatoes
ami garden seeds. Thn plants bud
como up, and had been hoed once, when
thn couple found that their small stock
or provisions was neatly exhausted.
Thn tioarost market for thn Ntrentertt
was Oodgovllln, morn than twenty miles
dlstuut from their claim. It was ueoet
snry that ono of thn couple hIiouM ntny
at homo to watch tho cows and thn
growing crops, und Mr. Ktreeter sot out
alone for Oodgovllln, with oxen nnd
wagon, to get Hour nnd other needed
Hn started on his jouruoy just after
sunrlso one morning, Ills wlfn finished
her morning's work about tho cabin, and
went out with a hoo to work In tlw Held,
taking with her tho chlhl, a llttlo girl
four yours of ago. '
Though living miles from any neigh
bors, tho hardy women 'of those duyu
often stayed alono while their husbands
worn gonn for days, and sometimes for
weeks, upon hunting or trapping excur
sions, or to distant hiurkotln,t; points.
Mrs. Streutor worked for Home hours

Although nho was not afraid of
Indians, sho was annoyed that ono of
them should como while her husband
was nwuy She knew Hint often they
worn lawless nnd thieving when they
discovered women alono.
An thn Indian came toward her his
face mowed and grinned so curiously
that she felt nn Impulse U laugh until
she huw that Its expression camo from it
"IfoonlfiMiihr bo grunted, ns hn came
up. "You go. you suuw, puck n ofia

Tho woman was frightened ut his

that hn tried to laugh and look nit pleas-
nat as his tiecr features would .permit,
and though ho had no weapons In sight.
"Men kill heap! Mo no hurt. You
go. We heap jitiek i flirt" und ho reached
down to pick up tho child.
Tim llttlo girl screnmed with torror,
nnd Mrs. Streeter caught her up nnd
"No, I will not go with you'sald she.
"You'rt u bud Injun, nnd you're lying

John -tried to explain to her that ho
meant to I si friendly und to aid her to
escape front duiifur.
"Heap (httupuHic!" (Fox Indians) said
he. "Men come, shoot, kill. Kill
p.iMMse, kill white siiiaw. Siptaw go
tut1, so," and ag.tlu ho motioned to
w.trd tho river, nid, by Imlt.ttlng tho
not of puddling und by sweeping his
hand forward, signified thut ho would
tuko her across It In his canoe.
"No, you go and !no me!' said the
woman, sternly. "I won't go with .you.
tlo!" sho repeated, (minting toward the
woods, mid then sho turned with the lit
tle girt In her arms und Marled toward
tho cabin. t
Instantly the Indian sprang forward,
then snatched the child from her, and,
catching her by the shoulders, forced
her down to tho ground tisin her face,
and ulcbty tied her arms. Hn had
evidently cenno prepared to carry out his
plan by force If necessary, and the poor
woman felt that her I tut 1 not hud been
true. Not daring to struggle, sho sub
mitted to 1st bound u captive.
Klsle, tho llttlo girl, had started to
run Into tho woods, hut John caught her
and took her, screaming, Into his arms.
He walked quickly hack with her to
Mrs. Streeter, who had risen, after a
struggle, to her foot.
"Come!" said he. "You go longa mo
now, heap kllckl Mo lake papoose. We
jiutk n rhf," and he started toward the
river, Isvkonlng her to follow. He had
F.lsle In his urms, and there was nothing
for the now thoroughly-frightened and
trembling woman to do but to go with
It was seer.l miles to the river. The
Winnebago hurrlvd forward ut u half
trot, the child crying plteously at uvcry
step, while the distressed mother, nearly
out of breath, kept close at his hcele,
trying to cheer her llttlo girl with words
of affection. John was probably too
toltd to care greatly for the papooew'a
walling or for lta mother's distress of
mind, but ho was intent upon doing
them a friendly service, and no doubt
was carrying It out with as much kind
ness as he was capable of exorcising.
At a little after noonday thoy came to
the river at the mouth of a crew, and
hero John put down the child, which he
had carried sail led alternately, an
going into tho edge of a willow thicket
upon the bank, dragged out a log canoe,
which contained u gun and some
blanket. The canon he slid down Into
the witier, und ordered Mrs. Strtieew to
get down the bank and step into it.
With her hands bound as thoy were
she found It dljrtlcult to get Into and alt
di)wnln,thn "llttlhh." narrow trough,.
nut ne nnaiiy managed, withlmt tipping
It uxor, to takohur plaooln te hgw of
the alight cratt.
Tho Indian thnuvtully phoodKiaU
upon her knoes In thn center of the
canon. "No touch ma," ho commanded,
tapping thn sides of tho canon, "Keep
a heap still." Thn llttlo girl, tired and
subdued, dared not so much as stir.
Then John picked up a paddle which he
had laid iion tho bank, got carefully
into inn canon at, inn stern, suovca out
into the river, und paddled tho frail
craft swiftly down thn stream.
The anguish of the poor womnn was
keen as she thought of tho husband who
had so recently been with her, nnd of
tho tinrcrtnln fate of her llttlo child and
herself. Hho could not believe tho In
dian's story that hn was rescuing them
from danger. Ills violence and his rapid
retreat, and this Journey upon tho river,
leading to tho west and away from the
white settlement, could to hor mind
mean only that bo was carrying them
nway Into that wretched captivity which
shn knew that morn than onn woman
and child had suffered at tho hands of
liravo woman though sho was, shn
gave herself up to despair.
All that day the canon sped rapidly
down stream, keeping as close under tho
bank as possible, und It was not until
after sundown that John landed and got
bis captives out upon thn bank where
they could rest their cramped limbs.
Hn then undid n roll of blankets und got
out some dried meat, which hn olTered
to Mrs. Streeter, motioning that thn
papooso could feed hor. Tho woman
could not eat, but by coaxing Induced
thn tired and hungry little girl to swal
low n fow scraps of tho raw, tasteless
After a time thn Indian untied Mrs.
Strnnter's hands, being careful to keep
between her and his gun. Then ho mo
tioned to the blankets.
"Siiuuw make um bod," said ho, "heap
(Had of so much freedom and u chance
to rest and to comfort hor child, Mrs.
Streeter made a rough couch, took Klslo
In her arms, und lay down upon It. Tho
llttlo girl was soon asleep, but thn
mother lay narrowly watching tho In
dian, waiting for a chance to escape If
no miould drop asleep or relax his guard
In any way.
Shu got no opportunity, however;
John sat near nt hand, leaning against
u trno, stiff und upright, with his gun
across his legs. Aftor about two hours
of rest ho ordered her to got up again
and get Into the boat, telling her to
She can led the sleeping child down
the bank, and while tho Indian steadied
thn canoe at thn stern, got in at thn how.
John throw In tho blankets, got In, put
bis gun between his knees, and took up
thn paddles. All night they floated
swiftly down thn river, thn long, steady
sweep of tho Indian's puddle doubling
tho rate at which thn canoo was borne
by the rapid current
Mrs. -Streeter endured her anxiety and
fatigue as bravely as sho could, not dur
ing, on Account of her child, to make
any demonstrations; but sho was all tho
tlino on thn watch for a chance to escape
from her captor.
At a little aftor sunrise tho Wlnne
bngo landed upon a bar at thn north
hank, and ordered her to get out of tho
canoe. Alter carrying Klslo iwlcop in
her arms all night sho found her own
limbs tcho so cramped and stiff that at
llrst It was Impossible to use them.
Seeing her condition the Indian swung
thn stern round, dragged tho canoo out
upon the bar, nnd helped her out.
Ho now for tho llrst time aroused in
her a llttlo hope by saying: "Heap
whlto mans, heap soje," pointing to thn
northwest., '"WnTk, huh so," showing
her where thn sun would I mi when their
Journey should end. Ho again offered
his captives thn dried meat, nnd the
pangs of hunger compelled both woman
und chlhl to muko a hearty meal.
Aftnr thoy hud rested nwhlln und got
the cramp out of their legs und arms,
the Indian pointed out tho direction lit
which thoy were to go, and ordered Mrs.
Streeter to walk ahead and lead tho
llttlo girl. Ho let them walk slowly,
keeping a rod or two behind them with
his gun and blankets. After throe
hours of tramping they eamn out of thn
woods upon n hill overlooking a broad
valley tlie Mississippi valley and
then thn Indian enmn eagerly forward.
"See,'1 ho said, his face- grinning und
working with evident pleasure us ho
pointed to a distant cluster of buildings
upon tho bank of u wide river which lay
In front of them. "Seo, ViiiirMAanf."'
It was tho frontier fort and trading
post of I'rnlriedu CHileu. Mrs, Streeter
had hoard of this place, hut hud known
only vaguely whom It was situated.
Shn now perceived that her captor hatt
Intended nil his acts In frtendllnesa. An
hour later sho and her child went safety
housed at the fort, und her delight and
thankfulness at the outcome to her ad
venture may bo Imagined.
Mrs. Streetcr's alarm for hor hus
band's safety was great until John,
whose services wcro'agatn aecurcd, made
a trip to Hodgovllln and brought him
across tho country to h"r. Mr. Streeter
had discovered their danger, front moot
ing a lsdy of soldier on the second
morning after his departure from homo.
They had accompanied him hastily hack
to his cabin, only to Und it burned down

The MnrferaUljr rial Nhlrt Nmbss to Have
Succeeded the All flat.
Tho rivalry between all flat and mod
erately flat skirts still continues, with
no present signs of triumph for tho par
ty of flat skirts. Two or three short j
steels nrn put In thn foundation skirts of
nil dresses, and In addition a small
cushion to define the waist. This ensh-
ion is very small indeed, hut is consid
ered Indispensable with most dresses.
Tho grand dross-makers aro putting a
steel Into the lower edgo of the skirts
across thn bark only to give tho bell
shaped elfcct which Is characteristic of
Valols stylos. This is tho exception as
yet, but, tojudgc by present indications,
is likely to become more general.
Wrappings aro classified according to
thn time of day at which they are Worn,
Jackets, capes and long cloaks of tartan
plaid with capos being reserved for
morning walks nnd errands, while for
aftoriiooncalls short mantelets of various
forms aro worn. These elalsirate small
wraps aro never of plain woolen 'or silk)
nlwoys of figured material, except In thn
case of vehet, plain velvet being used
for all kinds of wraps. If a long wrap
Is preferred for tho afternoon It Is a
tlgbt-llttlng rcdlngote, or a Russian
cloak of plain velvet, or plush, or of
matolasse silk. A beautiful long cloak
Is of Isjack velvet with rich block luce.
Within the velvet fronts nrn fronts of
plaited luce somewhat longer, nnd a
cape of plaited Incu covers the velvet
fronts to thn oIImiw. Another velvet
cloak bus a short, tight-fitting back und
medium long fronts, with fronts of
plaited lnco extending below. Deep
plaited luce borders tho entire lower
edge, and thn wide long sleeves aro of
plaited luce. The extravaguntly long
hanging sleeves which were Introduced
lust year aro still made to some extent,
but have been vulgarlcd by over-use.
On cloth cloaks they aro heavy nnd un
graceful. Military jackets still enjoy
a largo measure of popular favor, and

soldier blue with frogs and bruldlnir In
black. Carriage cloaks may be of light
color, and enriched ns plentifully os ono
plousns with gold braiding und embroid
ery, bends ami other etfeutlvo ornaments.
Theater wraps are almost all of light
colois, and most elaborately benutttled
with embroideries und galloons.
Fur and feathers are both abundantly
used for trimming wraps und costumes,
und with excellent reason, for no more
becoming frame to the face can bo Im
agined. That this and not Its warmth
Is the main reason of Its popularity Is
evidenced by the fact that not only out
door garments but dinner and bull
dresses as well urn trimmed with fur.
Only thn choicest furs sable, blue fox
(which Is really frown), and added to
those chinchilla are used on evening
drosses, edging the top of a decollete
Itodleo, or bordering tho foot of a light
satin skirt. Handsome cloth costumes
are trlmmud with Canada snblff, natural
hcuvnr, with black Kamschatka otter or
the brown Canada otter, with silver-fox,
and with chinchilla, which last is partic
ularly charmlngon dark velvet. Furriers
have gone a step be vend straight bands,
and are mnkiug adjustable trimmings of
various shapes, which can bo worn on nil
wraps, whether of wool, silk or velvet.
A shawl collar Is thus made, crossing at
the wnlst, with cuffs to match, or u
pointed collar and rovers with cuffs. A
plastron or vest of handsome fur is worn

Sometimes, too, the vest Is of thn cloak

some unpretending fur, for warmth

A very handsome tidy can 1st made as
follows: tlot t ?4 yards of two-Inch wide
ruby-colored sateen ribbon und 'J' yard)
of olive-green or any pretty contrasting
color: old-gold aud blue, or orange nnd
peacock blue, would 1st good for con
trasts. Cut tho ribbon Into twelve-Inch
lengths. There will bo live of the ono
shade und four of the other. Sow each
pleeo together to form n circle; turn In
quarter of an Inch and gather twice,
drawing the center almost together, not
leaving an opening larger than an
ordinary pencil. Sew a pretty silk cord
over theso two gatherings. Join tho
rosettes on the hack, alternating the
colors, and to All tho spaces between
them weave thu cord from tho opposite
jstlnts and fasten the threads in tho
middle. Quito wide oriental lace Is
slightly frilled on the edge ami set well

ahowy, und requires but little time to
put fho whole together.

Inches. This la curved on the ends and
