resented the accusation. Ho had heei
riding , and when his father accusei
him of the theft , dismounted , entered
the house nnd knocked the elder man
down. He then began to kick him ot
the head , literally beating hla brains
out with his foot.

tar family have long resided on the
reservation and have been conslderci
