A Rcmiuisence or White Pigeon.
BT DtXIIKRT S. 1VINS.
On a conspicuous mound in the south
east corner of a prairio field, near the
public road that leads from "Indiana
Prairie" to Constantine, and about one
mile west of the picturesque village of
White Pigeon, iu Southern Michigan,
stands a beautiful Balm of Gilead tree,
which marks the last resting-place of
one of the noblest and greatest of In
dians, White Pigeon, Chief of the
Miaiua tribe of Indians.
Early border-writers make frequent
mention of this most remarkable man.
He was born in Ohio about the year
1775, and died in Michigan 1812. In
the management of the aflairs of his
tribe he was judicious and painstaking,
adjusting all matters of business apper
taining to them with the most ex act dis
ciimination. His intellect was of a
high order; he reached his conclusions
only after deliberate consideration, and
these conclusions he could not be pre
vailed upon to change. He was held
in the highest esteem throughout the
Northwest. By the Miama Nation he
was honored anil trusted as their law
giver with the utmost confidence and
most explicit obedience. He was averse
to bloodshed, and was the strong and con
testant friend of jeace and good will to
all men. Tho story of the ascendency l
of bite Pigeon to the Chieftainship of
his tribe was told to old Dr. Elliott, an
early pioneer settler of Southern Michi
gan, by tho Chief himself, aud is as
The occasion was not only thrilling
and heroic, but on the part of the
young warrior's mother and himself
will ever stand in history as one of the
noblest and most humane acts known
to any people, and would serve as a
theme both grand and eloquent for the
poet or dramatist.
It was about ninety 3ears ago, and
the Indian tribes which were located
about the head waters of St. Joseph
river had not theu begun to feel the
civilizing influence of the earlier pio
neer settlers. The savage customs pre
vailed in all their terrible force. The
Indian brave was occupied with
thoughts of war, cruelty and revenge,
The createst barbaritv was practiced
toward captives, who were burned at
the stake, dragged to death at the tail
of wild horses, or otherwise made the I
victims of tho most inhuman torture
the ingenuity of the red savages could
A white man had been captured and
was brought into the Miami village. At
sight of the helpless prisoner the great
est excitement prevailed, aud through
out the camp the Indian men, women
and children began to whet their
appetites for the horrid feast of his
A council of tho warriors was called
to determine the wretched man's fate.
Tho decision was a foregone conclusion.
It was decided to burn him at the
Preparations were immediately begun
and the camp resounded with loud
shouts of pleasure aud gratification.
Another hour of fiendish delight wa3
promised. Another human sacrifice
was to be enjoyed. The inexorable
mandate of the council had gone forth.
In all tho village there were but three
persons besides the trembliug captive
whose faces did not exhibit glad ex
pectancy. These three were young
White Pigeon, his mother and sister.
They had been quiet but earnest
spectators oi tne arrangements in pro-
gress for thejdreadful orgies. White
Pigeon's mother was the Chieftess or
(Jueen of the tribe. She was called
White Dove, and her daughter was
called Bed Bud, while her only sou was
called Wild Ct or White Pigeon, and
the names of the mother an I son m are
found appended to many important
treaties. The mother was tilling out a
kind of regency, which had continued
now for about twenty years, and, ac
cording to the tradition, she ruled the
tribe with a sway, power and success as
no woman had ever tilled before.
She was of the royal blood of the
Miamis. Her young son had been
singled out as her successor, but before
he could attain the great distinction of
leadership and command the obedience
of his rivals for the high place, he
must distinguish himself by some deed
of prowess; must show that he was
brave and resolute, as well as wise and
The captive was now bound to the
stake, and as the fiendish executioners
leaped high about him, piling up the
faggots, White Dove sat in the outer
ring of spectators trying to form a plan
for the advancement of her son en
deavoring to take advantage of the cir
cumstances of the sacrifice to call the
favorable notice of the assembled war
riors to her son for the honors of Chief.
Her scheme was soon perfected and im
parted to -White Pigeon, who carried it
oat with a spirit woithy of the son of sq
noble a woman.
The plan was to save, the victim from
horrible death to snatch from the
pyre the hapless victim to cheat the
warriors and the wemen of the pleasure
of the sacrifice.
The soene had now become one of
animation. The whole camp had gath
ered.. On- the outer limits of the i-hrong
stood the gloating women, holding up
their babes to gladden their eyes with
the sight of .the immolation. The inner
circles were composed of painted war
riors, -who filled - the air with their
vociferations and coarse jests. All
eyes were fixed.upon the pale victim as, J
With bands and feet lashed to the stake;
be faced his tormentors.
The leading executioner sprang into
the ring, and, waving aloft a lighted
torch, with many fantastic motions of
his body, he- approached the captive.
In a moment more tho fire would be
ignited and the hellish feast would be
on. Now was tho supreme moment for
tho aged Chieftess. She slipped a
knife into the hands of her son, bade
him to leap to the captive's rescue, loose
with the sharp blade the helpless vic
tim, proclaim aloud his chieftainship,
and leave the rest to her sagacity.
Fired by the inspiration of his am
bitious mother, the young warrior elec
trified tho crowd by springing into
their midst. He dashed the torch-
bearer aside, waved his gleaming knife,
proclaimed that he was the Chief chosen
by the Great Spirit, and after a few
slashes of his knife bade the prisoner
go free. Astonishment and surprise
filled the minds of the Indians. Al
though cheated of their prize, they
were so carried away with the heroism
of the young brave that they regarded
him with feelings of admiration, rather
thau displeasure, and were very gener
ally satisfied at the strangeness of the
denouement and bold rescue.
White Pigeon was thereafter a fa
vorite, esteemed by ail tho tribe as a
god, and he became a Chief of the first

Many years afterwards, as Chief
White Pigeon was on his way to Wash

Indiana. A stranger approached and
carefully scrutinized him. Suddenly
he threw his arms around the Chiefs
neck. It was the rescued prisoner who,

was one of mingled pleasure aud bur
prise to both.

uen Susan Bcntley married Hugh
Lynn, aud returned with him io his
home in the South, bhe knew nothing
of his family. She found them to be
clever, gay, warm-hearted people, who
welcomed her cordially, and took her
at once to their hearts.
P. their homes, however, she learned
before many days had passed borne
facts that startled her. Several of her
husband's uncles and cousins men of
high social position, drank io excess.
Susan thought and prayed over these
terrible significant facts alone. Then,
hiding all her miscrv- and terror, she
went to her husband with a cheerful
"Hugh," she said, "your family have
atendency to the disease of drunkenness

Young Lynn was a man of wit and

Her plan was a simple one. Stimu

The neighborhood wondered, for tho
community was one where "good liv
ing'' held high place in the estimate of
life's good things. Susan herself was al
ways cooking savory little dishes for
her husband, that he might not find
his meals insipid,
"Other people," she said gaily, "may
perhaps take wine or take cold with
impunity; but we Lynns can do
Her one object for years was io keep
her husband interested and eager in his
business and amusement. "A hapnv.

The result of this experiment, which
occupied and filled the greater part of
I her life, was that Hugh Lynn is still

reporter. "I'm glad of it, and Joe
ought to give me half of it, for if it
hadn't been for me he would never have
"How's that, Jim," asked a bystander;
"were you an important witness?"
"Xo," replied Jim. "You see it was
this way. Joe and I both lived in tho
same Oxford countv town when the war
broke out, and later on we were lioth
drafted. I was working in the woods at
the time for the Sandersons, up on the
Magalloway Kiver. It was getting
along in March when I received notice
of it, and it was all hurry and drive
about the camp, for we knew that sled
ding would not last much longer, and of
course every one was anxious to see the
contract closed up as soon as possible.
"When I told the boss that I had
been drafted he told me to stick to my
job till it was completed and he would
see that I didn't sutler by it. Well, our
job was finally finished, and I got home
one night after dark. Before morning
there was a rap at the door, and iu a
few minutes I was under arrest and on
my way to Auburn. While riding down
there 1 told iuy storj- to the officer who
had me iu charge, and asked if it was a
dead sure thing that I must go to the
front. He told me that it looked very
much as if I should.
"Se'eral of my townsman had skipped
soon after being drafted, Joe among the
rest, and uutil I appeared the town had
lacked one of filling its quota; but he
added: "I would rather see some of
these fellows who have tried to run
away go into tho sen-ice than you, and
if we can find ai of them within a week
you may get off."
"I was put in Auburn jail, and a
letter from home, a day or two later,
told me that Joe's wife had let on that
he was secreted in an old logging camp.
I held my tongue until the iast day of
the week was uncomfortably near and
then I blowed on Joe. The next day he
took my place, for the Sanderson's had
been doing what they could for me, and
I got off with a week in Auburn jail.

She Could Not Eat.
An interesting surgical operation has
been performed in Buffalo. It has
saved a yountr woman's life, and has
also made her a great curiosity, The
patient is under twenty years old, and
for some time had gradually been losing
power to swallow her food. Finally,
she could not oven swallow her saliva
It was seen that something must be
done, or she would die of starvation.
A hole was cut into her stomach and a
tube was inserted. For months this
was the only means by which nourish
ment could be given to her. Food
would be chopped up and placed in the
tube and then washed down with water.
In the meantime another operation was
performed, which reopened the natural
passage from the mouth to the stomach.
This passage, through some strange
freak of nature, had grown together.
Careful nursing has since made it pos
sible for the patient to take food
through her mouth once more. TljfjJ
tube in her stomach still remains, anal
it is understood that some museum
manager has been trying to secure the
woman, to place her on exhibition.

MARSHAL UPMAIIOS'S STORY.
It Ih About the Late Kmpcror Frederick
unit Ih furious.
Tiomo time ago Col. titoft'el, an authority
in the military affairs of France and Ger
many, published in Paris a pamphlet con
cerning tho possibility and feasibility of a
Franco-Gtriuan alliance against Russian
pan-slavism, and Kussiuu barbarism gen
erally. Tho sino qua non of such au alli
ance, Col. Stoffel said, was that Germany
6uould return to Trance her lost provinces.
The general discussion of Col. Stoffcl's
novel ideas was interrupted by events of
greater importance nt Berlin and Paris,
but, according to the New 'ork .S'n,it has
been revived by some rather sensational
comments on it by the venerable Marshal
Mai.-Mab.on. Siuco the accession of tho
prcseut German emperor to the throne.
Marshal MacMahon thinks, thero is no
hope that France may get back her prov
inces peacoably in tho near future. Had
young William's father, however, lived to
execute the foreign policy he had in his
mind, France would have recovered Al
sace and Lorraine without the tiring of a
shot or the spilling of a drop of blood.
"On the day after the batttle of Sedan,
says the marshal, iu explanation of his
unique opinions, "tho Crown Prince Fred
erick called on me. I could not receive
him on account of my wounds, but D'Ab
zac. my adjutant, saw him and talked with
him, and on tho following day related the
conversation to mo. The Prussian Gen
eral staff expected the war to end very
soon, and had no idea that Paris could
offer much resistance. '1 he Crown Priuce
Frederick said: Heir vou Moltke is, in
my opinion, about to make a p.rave mis
take. He wishes to compel you to cede to
us part of your territorj-.' I gave my
views on the matter, and declared I hold
snch a pionosal to bo a had error. I think
I know the French, and that they could
forgive every thine except ju-t such a crip
pliug of their country. As soon as they
regained their strength after thus loiug
their territory they would try to get back
all they had lost. They would, therefore,
always le threatening tho peace aud
safety of Prussia.' Th'so words t,t
tho crown priuce, reported to
mo by D'Abzac, impressed me deeply. I
have never forgotteu them. I am sure that
Frederick, as emperor, would not have al
tered his views, but would hae been true
to his former conviction that the annexa
tion of Alsace aud Lorraine was a perma
nent obstacle to any reconciliation of
France and Germany. Fnder him Staffers
proposal for a Franco-German nlli.ir.ee
could have been considered seriously. Now
it is out of the question."
All of the German dailies, which are not
entirely occupied with tho recent dove'op

A Curiosity to Tenilei-feet.
There is a mine jtM above Howardsville,
Col., that is a curiosity to tiio tenderfiet

tho Xeigol s, who, iu the earlv days, ran

Hows out of the tunnel it freezes, and tbc

Close by, in the stillness of the night, could
scarcely startle the Ordinary individual more
than do trifling noises tho nervous invalid. But
once the nerves aro braced and the system invig
orated with Hostctter's Stomach Bitters, this
abnormal sensitiveness is succeeded by a tran
quillity not to be distuibed by trivial causes.
Impaired digestion is a fertile cause of nerve
weakness and unnatural mental gloom, and a
vigorous lenewal of the action of tho stomach is
one of the surest means ot invigorating anil
quieting tbonorvrs. Insomnia, or ttleeplessness,
a form ot nerous ultoise, is unquestionably
benefited by sedatives, whon It is prolonged, or

statements about Russia which nowreacb
England from Austria are to bo received
with great caution. As to the reported in

this lespect of former years. Tho most
widely cirrnlated secret manuscript (for it
is not allowed to be printed) is Count Tol
