Old Chief Rpd Cloml Gives
Name and Ble s > ing.
Last summer when young Will Jorj
don , son of Colonel Charles P. Jordon
of Rosebud Agency , S. D. , returned to
the reservation after spending six
months in Omaha attending a busi
ness colkge , he was welcomed in his
South Dnkota home as the son of the
white man who probably has more
influence over the Sioux Indians
than any other person.
But at the beginning of 1903 , when'
the same young man returned to-
Omaha .to finish his schooling , he left
the reservation not as Will Jordan
but as ' 'Red Cloud" being the lirst
person whom the old chief , Red < 'loud , ' '
permitted to be named alter himself
Readers of the World-Henild will j
probably remember the story which ( *
appeared in this paper some months j 2
ago of the romantic marriage of Colc '
onel Jordan and Wee Was Te , the ,
Sioux princess , and the interesting
family they have reared on the South
Dakota Indian agency , Young Red
Cloud is tne second son of this marS
riage , and according to the Indian j
custom , when IS years of age , was
given the Indian name by which he
will be known among the Sioux the
balance of his life.
It is customary among the Indians
to give the child a temporary name ;
the permanent name being given
them when 18 years old. But when c
the second name ia given , it must be 1
with the consent qf the warrior for
whom the young man is named.
Although , as the head of the Sioux
tribe , Red Cloud has of ten been asked
to permit a young warrior to use his
illustrious name , the old chief always
refused , insisting that in hia own c
time , and when he found one worthy
to bear the name of Red Cloud , he
That time came last summer when
the infirm old chief paid his last visit
to Colonel Jordan , of whom he is very
At that time he made known hia in
tention of bestowing his name upon
the colouel's son , Will.
The ceremonies attached to the
transfer of names were performed on
July 4 , in the presence of thousands
of Sioux Indians and ended by the I
man , who had just received his ' 'war- j I
rior" name , persenting some cherish0
efl article of value to a friend. Younu ' -
Red Cloud gave away a apleneid pony
of. which he was very proud and fond ,
to a friend , and the cermoniea were
The accompanying photograph of
young Red Cloud was made while he
wore the "scalp coat" of the famous
Endian chief , Spotted Tail , a kinsman
of Wee Was-Te , Mra Jordan. There )
are no acalps of white persona used on
the coat , all of them being taken from f
Crow Indians during the many years
of war between that tribe and the
Sioux. Old Spotted Tail waa very .
proud of this evidence of hia bravery .
and prowess. ( Spotted Tail was kill
ed many years ago by Crow Dog ,
in a flt of jealousy. Crow Dog remains
on the reservation and is alive today. )
Juat how many "scalps were uaed in
malting the fringe , wWpb
down the sides and along the arms ,
cannot be * told , but undoubtedly *
great number of Crows went to death
before Spotted Tail finished the coat.
The young man will finish his busi
ness education in Omaha ( his regular
schooling was at the hands of a pri-
yate tutor whom Colonel Jordan has
kept in his family for years ) and then
return to the reservation to assist his
father in his store , the largest and
most interesting of the kind in South
Dakota or the west.

The Greatest ol its Kind.
The excellent record of the"Mer-
jantile"is attracting1 much attent-
on. It now has in Nebraska over
seven thousand policy holders and
ver six million dollars of insur
ance in force. It has annually for
iiveyears on an average declared
o its policy holders a div-
.dend of 15 to 20 per cent ; that is ,
.t has saved in cost to its policy
liolders that much. There is no

business that would yield him 20
per cent profit. The Mutual In-

the state can be proud of the fact
that Nebraska has within its board

unquestioned. Among the number
none are better than the Farmers

these companies together with the
German Mutual of Omaha he has
written thousands of dollars of in
surance for people in Valentine ,
Crookston , Cody , Merriman ,
Gordon , Wboklake and through
out Cherry Co. There has never
been a question as to the reliability
of these mutual companies and
those holding policies in them can
testify to the saving in cost of in
surance. There should be no dis
crimination against them because
they have saved thousands of dol
lars to policy holders , and insur
ance rates have been lowered 25
per cent by virtue of the existence
of these companies , in which even
those opposed to mutual insurance
have profited. They insure city

Tlie Kid Gambler.
One evening in September
I alighted from a train ,
That town I will remember
The slush , the jrloom ; the rain.
While huntingfor a lodging
In a pool hall I did step ,
And the sight that met my vision
1 never will forget.
Around a gambling table
Were men of everv degree ,
While from their midst a handsome
Came stepping up to me ,
Saving I see you are a stranger
Won't vou come and have a game ?
[ am proprietor of this house
Jolly Kid Gambler by name.
Declining the youth's offer ,
I said I'd vatch a while ;
And then among those ruHians
He went bacic with a smile ;
Deal after deal the cards went round
Silver and gold he won.
Some exchanged dark glances
Others played silently on.
I'll open this jack for fifty
One of the ruffians spoke.
When the boy cried out I'll double
the bet. And win it or go broke ,
I say Kid you are cheating
Spnke up a sullen tough ,
I.'U tell vou now this kind of thing
las gone quite far enough. '
The vouth then in bis anger
Said he would rout the band ,
Jndertook to take the money
But a bullet staved his hand
A blinding flash of fire ,
A groan of deadly pain ,
And the jolly youthful gambler ,
Was numbered with the slain.
They took up their money , and rushed
out in the night ,
Left me alone with the dving boyj
And oh God what a sight.
He staggered to bis feet but once
Back on the table fell ,
Saving come quick lower stranger
My story to you I'll tell.
Somewhere I have a mother ,
O , find her if vou can
Twas for the sake of finding her ,
i stole the winning hand.
Tell her had she loved her child , '
As other mothers's do ,
[ never would have been here ,
* } tk yqy ,
To talk so of my mother
I know it is not right.
But stranger she deserted me
Ten years ago tonight.
With her I went out walking" ,
i This ni ht ten years ago
1 Ah then I was a little child ,
m And wrong t did not know.
She left me at a corner
Ah str.inger cant you see ?
Why I'm dying here alone
She never came back to me ,
They to-jk me to the poor house
But long I did not stay ,
They treated me so badly there
That soon I ran away.
Tell her I first tried honest-woik
But they said I was too small , and
then I learned to gamble ,
And opened up this hall.
But lately luck's been against me
And I wanted to find her so
That I stole the winning hand to
And stranger the rest you know.
I only stole the joker ,
And had they but let me play
I would have quit this reckless life ,
And lived the honest way.
His vcice grew faint and fainter
He tried ro raise his head ,
One long , long sigh escaped him
The gambling boy was dead.

Congressman Holliday of Indiana
tells the Sentiriel's Washington corrc *
spo'.ident that he "takes-no stock in llm
talk that the tariff is the mother of
trusts. " On the contrary , he asserts
that "we would have had the same
trusts under a free trade policy. " .
Conceding for thd" sake of the argii-
nient that Mr. Holliday actually be
lieves what he says as to the existence
of trusts , he certainly cannot deny that
the tariff gives the trusts the oppor
tunity to extort higher prices from the
American consumer. This may be il
lustrated by the price of-borax. There
is a borax trust In this country and
likewise one in Great Britain. In Eng
land borax is selling at 2 % cents a
pound , with a profit to the trust. In
this country it is selling at 7 % cents a
pound. " The American tariff on boras
Is 5 cents a pound. 'There can bo no
possible explanation of the difference
except that the tariff wall enables the
American trust to exact this additional
5 cents from the consumer.
Nobody denies that most trust made
products are sold cheaper abroad than
at home. It was freely conceded be
fore the Industrial commission. John
W. Gates of the steel and wire trust
testified in November , 1S90 , that steel
and wire goods were sold cheaper to
foreigners than to American consum
ers. Charles M. Schwab , president of
the steel trust , testified in May , 1001 ,
that all kinds of manufactured goods
were sold cheaper for export than for
the home market. A. B. Farquhar ,
the agricultural implement man , said ,
"Certainly our manufactures are sold
much lower abroad. "
Why ? There can be but one answer ,
and that is that by excluding foreign
competition from our markets we have
enabled the trusts to monopolize them
and to put prices far above the point
'of reasonable profitsr Indianapolis
Nothing can be , truly great which Is
