. Nob. , August 10. [ Special
to Tin : Bni : . ] The frequent visits of
the Omaha , Otoo and Pawnee Indiana
to Milford with their sick during the
early settlement of that borough and
their encampment in a plcturosquo
bond of the river just opposite the Lith
ium springs gave rise to many in
quiries. By persistent efforts on the
part of the editor of the Blue Valley
Record , the lirst paper of Milford , the
olio wing legend was elicited , and has
never before boon published , owing to
the absence of ono link that lias but re
cently been supplied :
Many years ago the Otoos and Pawnees -
noes wore united under ono or
ganization , and presided over by a wise
chieftain by the name of Quonchaqua.
Under his leadership happiness and
prosperity reigned. The Omalias be
came their strongallics.iuid they waged
successful war on the murderous Sioux
nd Choyonnes when occasion required ,
nnd that was quite frequently , for the
braves of the last named tribe , who oc
cupied vast tracts to the west and north
west , gave chase to the herds of BulTalo ,
us those animals made their regular
visits to the Salt Basin8.
Quench aqua mid a daughter ,
of the pruirlo flowers , wjiich entitled
her to the name of Shogo. The troph
ies of the chase adorned her wigwam.
None were more attentive to her than
the young chieftains , Kolhnmn , of the
Pawnees and Popotno , of the Otocs ,
The rivalry bred discore. Fair Shogo
decided that Popotno was good , but
Kolhamu was far hotter , and in this
comparative jift&Qinont the aged chief
tain coincided , Then a division of ter
ritory became necessary. The Otoos
wore given the territory east of the
river , whobo waters flowed to the north
ward , and the Pawnees a broad expanse
of territory west of the river flowing to
the southward , while tlio prairie between -
twoon remained neutral. A union of
forces became necessary to repel in-
vasiou und BO continued until the death
of Quonolmqua , which must have boon
prior to the time when Coronado wont
in search of the Seven Cities of Glboln.
