yesterday from Tabor , la. , where she has
She went to the house where her ex-
husband has been staying , on Tenth near
the Northwestern round house , to meet
Harris and when she got there she says she
found Harris In a very compromising posi
tion with a girl named Hogan , who lives In
I3oonc. A row Immediately ensued , and In
the course of * It Miss Hogan claims Mrs.
Harris knocked her down and threatened to
shoot her ,
Harris swore out an Information charging
her with assault and battery nnd she was
taken to the city Jail. She claimed , however -
over , that" the proceeding was all a matter
of splto work and was released by order of
Judge McGco on her own recognizance. As
BOOH as ho heard of it Harris went before
Jtiitlco Vlen nnd swore out another com
plaint asking that she bo put under bonds
to keep tlio peace , on the ground of her
having made threats to kill. Mrs. Harris'
bond was fixed at $300 and on her failure to
put up the required amount she was taken
to the county jail. The case will probably
bo aired In court today.

Tlic Dec's telegraphic dispatches yester
day contulncd an account of the appointment
of Hon. It. 10. Dccmcr of Red Oak to a posi
tion on the Btntc supreme benoli. The
news caused much rejoicing among the
friends of Judge JJeomcr , who utimticr legion
In Council Bluffs. Kor the past five years
he has occupied a position on the district
bench of this district.
When he was elected he was but 23 years
old , and the youngest man on the bench.
It was expected at the time that he would
have a good deal of trouble In holding down
sonic of the old lawyers , who might not
relish practicing before n man so many
years their Junior. Hut If tiny attorneys
tried to play fast and loose with him they
were satisfied with one experience , for Judge
Dccmcr , throughout his term and a half of
onicc , has been equal to all demands made
upon him. Ho Is possessed of a fine legal
Intuition anil a disposition to work , and
these two characteristics have combined to
make him one of the most successful
Judges on the district bench. There Is
lltllo doubt but he will make an equally
good record as a Judge of the supreme court.
It Is Interesting to recall the fact that at
the time of his election Judge Uecnicr was
catcher for the base ball club of Hod Oak ,
his home town. And they say he was as
good a catcher as he was n lawyer. They
also say that even now ho can get out wltii
the boys and catch a game that surprises

Old Settler ItccouiitH the riciisur M of Trav
Kelly's slide on foot has set some of the
old settlers to brushing cobwebs off their
memories. One of the old settlers of Iowa ,
who has been there himself , thus recounted
his experiences to a newspaper man :
"I walked from Des Molnes to Council
Bluffs and back In 1853 , and I can do It
again If It should be necessary. The spring
of 1S53 was a wet one. The roads were fear
fully muddy. The only public means of con
veyance was the stage coach. I called at
the stage office on Third street , near where
Harbach's manufactory now stands , and
asked their agent , Mr. Sears , what the
faro was to Council Bluffs. He said $15. I
abked when the stage would reach there ,
and ho said ho did not know. I asked A. T.
Johnson , the secretary , and Colonel Hooker ,
the ninnagrr , of the Great Western Stage
line. I received the same Indifferent answer
from all of them. People now think that
railroad conductors and their ticket
agents are Independent and Indllferent some
times , but the Independence of the old and
early stage coach lines caps thorn all. Being
well dcilled In walker's line of travel and
being what was called In those days a
good stepper , I took my grip sack and
started for the Bluffs on foot. I took n late
dinner at Adel and stayed over night at
Irlshtown , near Redlleld. The second day
at noon I took dinner at 'Squire Morrison's
stage station. An Incident occurred there
that will bear relating. I met the stage
coach coining -east from Council Bluffs at
that point. We all took dinner together
and when I asked 'Squire Morrison what my
bill was ho Inquired whether I was a stage
passenger or a foot passenger. I replied
that I was n foot passenger , and he charged
mo 23 cents. 'Great Heavens,1 said a
gentleman , standing near by , 'you charged
mo CO cents for my dinner and this man
ate three times as much as I did , ' to which
the squire replied , 'Can't help that , sir ;
can't help It. My rule Is 50 cents for stage
passengers and 25 cents for foot passengers. '
"Tho second night I stayed at Lewis , then
the county seat of Cass county. The third
day I took dinner nt Big Grove station In
the western part of Pottawattamlo county.
It rained very hard that afternoon and I
stayed all night. The next morning I ate a
hearty breakfast , took a lunch with mo for
dinner , which I devoured as I trudged along
about midday. 1 arrived at the old Pacific
house at 0:30 : p. in. the fourth day In good
shape , and the stage coach that left Des
Molnes the same day arrived some time dur
ing the night. I returned on walkers' line
the same as I went , safe and sound. I came
back In five' days. Many places the bridges
wort > gone and I had to walk a long distance
cross over small streams. At Panther creek
I found the bridge gone completely , not even
the strlngcis being left for a foot path.
On the opposite Bldo was another foot pas
senger wishing to cross. We tramped down
the stream some distance In hope of finding
a log to cross on. Uoth Hides of tha creek
had good sized trees and at last we found
two trees leaning toward each other across
the stream. We each borrowed an ax of the
nearest neighbor on each s'de ' , felled the
trees toward each other , and formed a pass.
Wo crossed over , ho took my ax homo and
I took his. On the evening of the fifth day
after dark I reached Seott'a Ridge , across the
Des MolneH river. On the east side It was
one large body of water from the bridge to
the first bench of high land where the Miller
hotel now stands. I could hear the paddling
of canoes and skiffs In the distance , but to
reach them I had to wade out In the water
knee deep. Klkanu Fltzwater rowed mo

It Is learned from M. W. Potter
of Red Lodge that work on the Clark's
Ford placers has been going on sev
eral weeks. These gold fields , which wcro
discovered last full nil along the bars of
Clark's Fork of 'the Yellowstone , about
twenty-live miles southeast of Red Lodge ,
says the Anaconda Standard , and In some
cases extend up the streams Into the llank'ng
mountains. About sixty men are at work
and the reports received trom the mines are
very Haltering. Very little snow falls In the
region of these placers and a very long sea
son for work can bo had. A large number
of those operating the mines are from the
vicinity of Butte. Sluice boxes are used in
the old way. There Is an ample supply of
water at nil scatons and ditches can be car
ried to long distances.
Mr. Potter believes that the mines are
good , but says that much more will be known
as soon ns spring fairly opens and thorough
prospecting can bs done. An extensive stam
pede is looked for with the opening of spring.

Little has been heard lately of the opera
tions of the Gould Co. , says 'the Cripple
Creek Crusher. They have , however , been
working steadily and to such good purpose
that they have a surprise in store for their
friends and the mining world generally.
They have not made a 1,000-ounce strike or
opened n second Independence , but on the
Nil Dcsperandum , In the bottom of a10 -
foot shaft , they have opened a vein the full
width of the shaft in size , nine-tenths of
which Is na fine looking quartz as can bo
seen in 100 miles travel. Near the sur
face this quartz only assayed about $8 per
ton , but It has steadily Increased In value
until now the management asserts that it
will pny for milling. Near the surface
great masses of Iron pyrites were encoun
tered , none of which contained values of any
moment. As depth Is gained this Iron is
fast giving place to crystallzed quartz and
It Is nat Improbable that this vein , owing
to Its size , will soon become a famous pro
Ciromnl Ilii | * Cold.
In the Ground Hog gold mine , which Is
by far the largest operated quartzlte property
on Battle mountain , Red Cliff , bg ! bodies of
talc , sulphide and oxidized Iron are being
disclosed. Some of the ore Is so valuable the
gold Is quoted as per cent instead of ounces.
Two of the lessees will ship , but the In
clement weather has thrown the others back
on account of being unable to dry their ore ,
and they will not ship until June , when a
shipment will be made from the whole mine ,
which the Eagle County Times says will
throw nil former yields In the shade.
The Indications of a strike are very flatterIng -
Ing In the Little Chris , also owned by this
company , but In the lime contact. A flow
of water was encountered during the week
and the rock Is becoming mineralized.
A rich find was made on Wolf creek by
Rice & Co. , the ore being free milling and
running twenty ounces In gold to the ton.
The camp Is wild with excitement , says the
Denver News. In the Iron Cap lode was
found nuggets of gold as large as pin heads
and lots of them. This claim has nearly
a car of ore on the dump ready for ship
ment. There Is great need of a good stamp
mill In Dubols , and If one was kept In opera
tion It would bo kept busy , as there Is a
great amount of ore on the dump that will
hardly pay to ship and pay smelting charges ,
but would give good returns frtin a stamp

The Indians composing the Sioux nation
arc this spring the happiest ami most con
tented mortals In the cdnntry. This statp of
affairs was brought about by the distribution
nmong them of tens of thousands of dollars
In cash by the government. This money was
the first regular payment made these Indians
for ceding to the government 11,000.000 acres
of land n few years ago. As n further pay
ment for the land ceded , the Sioux will also
receive during the next few months largo
quantitcs of agricultural Implements nnd
thousands of heads of horses , cattle , oxen ,
etc. , for which contracts wcro awarded at
Chicago by Indian Commissioner Browning.
As a result of the recent distribution of
cash , writes n correspondent of the Chicago
Tribune , the towns ncnrcst the Dakota
agencies have been filled of late with In
dians of all ages nnd conditions who lost no
time In exchanging their money for nrtlclcs
of various kinds , which , In their opinion ,
arc nioro valuable to them than money.
Although the government furnishes the
Indians with practically all the necessaries
of life , the red man and his family can find
many ways of squandering their wealth.
One of the first places visited when they
nro looking for Investments Is n clothing
store , nnd after this come boot nnd shoo
and dry goods "stores. In these places they
can find many articles that attract their
admiration. Among the articles which
they most highly esteem are ginghams ,
calicoes of bright colors and flowered de
signs , muslin , bright colored shawls , trunks ,
valises , hats , children's shoes , overshoes ,
bead ? , and occasionally silks and velvets
are purchased for dresses for the squaws.
Millinery stores are also extensively pat
ronized by the feminine portion of the Sioux
After n visit to town by Indians who
have money to spend It Is only n short time
until dealers arc out of cigarettes , young
Indians of less than 10 years of age being as
eager to smoke them as their ciders.
Scores of the Sioux are annually becoming
more aristocratic , and In order to maintain
the proper dignity Invest their surplus
wealth In buggies and double-seated car
riages , the harness for the horses being the
best In the market , the Indian preferring
those with bruss trimmings. A pllgrlmngc
of the Sioux to town discloses many such
turnouts , the Indian and his usually largo
family occupying the seats In white man
fashion and casting looks of contempt upon
their less fortunate and poorer brethren ,
who must be content to travel on footer
or on their shaggy nnd diminutive ponies.
Now that most of the Sioux have become
accustomed to live in comfortable log or
frame buildings , especially In winter time ,
when the nlry tepee is hardly sulllclent to
protect them against the rigors of the
northwestern winters , . H Is natural that
they should wish to make the Interior of
their dwellings as comfortable and homelike
as possible , and for tMs reason. In order
that they may have1 thfnga like their whlto
neighbors , they nro when "flush" good
patrons of furniture ! stores. Here they pur
chase cupboards , bedsteads , choirs , occasion
ally a baby carriage , etc. Much of their
money Is also expended for toy express
wagons , which are given to their children.
Ono Sioux warrior , .whose countenance be
trayed anything but Intelligence , was Im
pressed while In a store1 by the convenience
of a large and expensive desk which occupied
the business office of the place. Having a
fair Idea of what a desk would cost , and
possessing the necessary cash , he went tea
a furniture store , land , ! looking over the
various desks on exhibition , selected and
paid for ono which suited his
aristocratic taste. Ho next pur
chased pens , paper and Ink , and loading the
desk In his wagon , started triumphantly on
his return to the reservation. It seems that
ho had learned to write n little , nnd , being
ambitious , desired to have things In shape so
that he could 'practice during leisure
moments In his own home , and thus Improve
his penmanship. Some day he may blossom
out as a professor of penmanship , and or
ganize a class among his brethren. There
are many excellent penmen among the Sioux.
Indians who have Just become the proud
owners of baby carriages present an InterestIng -
Ing sight. One was seen coming from a fur
niture store where himself and wife had Just
selected and purchased a handsome little car
riage. After leaving the store the warrior
took the lead , wheeling the empty carriage ,
while his wife followed , bearing on her back
a large-sized pappoosc. It did not seem to
enter their minds at the time that It would
bo the proper thing to place the baby In the
carriage and thus make use of that
vehicle and save the squaw unnecessary
The government furnishes the Indians with
meats of nearly nil kinds , but nevertheless
the red people expend large sums for meat
while In the border towns. During the
recent pilgrimage one Indian visited n local
meat market nnd purchased pork to the
amount of $13.50. This he took to his tepee ,
Invited In his friends , nnd together they had
n "henp big" feast. Stinginess Is not n trait
of the Indians nnd they are always very
liberal as long as their money last1 ! .
After several days of trading and sightsee
ing , the Indians return quietly to their reser
vations , empty In pocket , but rich in this
world's goods. Their money Is nil gone , but
they know that their open-handed Great
Father will give them , more In the future.
While In town they conduct themselves In a
manner that Is beyond criticism. They dress
neatly and warmly , many of the warriors
wearing the finest of overcoats. In 1803 the
steamer War Eagle , a boat famous In Mis
souri river history , dlQcharged a cargo of
annuity goods nt the Lower Brulo agency.
Among the goods were a number of men's
hats. Nowadays the Indians expend consider
able money in the towns for hats , but In
those days hats were a curiosity to them.
They had never before seen anything of the
kind except us worn by the whites about the
agency. After the departure of the steamer
the hats and other annuity goods wcro dis
tributed among the Indians. The red
men had great sport with the hats , the
first ever given them by the govern
ment. Some of the Sioux promptly
fastened the hats to the trees and shot ar-
rowa at them. This soon developed Into a
form of gambling. The Indian who , out of
ten shots , could put the most arrows through
the hat was entitle to.It , as well ns to the
arrows which his companions had shot at
It In nn endeavor tovp | the prize. Arrows
were valued at 10 cents'cach. Good marks
men would frequently win several hats and
whole nrmfuls of arrows. The fact that
the hats wcro liberally punctured with ar
row hoies made no 'dlfforunco In their value
to the Indians.
The proficiency of the Sioux Indians with
the bow and arrow was really wonderful.
To test the nerves ipf ( the whlto employes
about the agency they would resort to all
torts of schemes. Ono day an employe
was engaged nbout jsorqo work In a wagon.
Near by was n Sioux foaling with n bow nnd
arrow. The whltd man grew a trlllo
nervous over the ovIUe'nt carelessness of the
Indian , nnd cautioned lilm to bo more care
ful. The Indian , 1)1 ) reply , asked how near
the whlto man thought ho cculd come to
him by shooting an arrow straight up In the
air. Believing that ( ho Sioux was simply
boasting , the employe gave him permls-
sloii to try his skill In the manner
Indicated. In nn Instant the arrow was
soaring swiftly Into the air. Without delay
the employe scrambled out of the wagon ,
nnd Just In time. The arrow a few seconds
ends later descended , and Us steal point
went completely through the bed of the
wagon exactly at the spot where the whlto
man had been standing n moment before.
The employe was nettled by the Inchk-nt. but
the Indian , laughing at his agility In getting
out of the wagon before the arrow struck ,
walked unconcernedly away. The dexterity
of the Sioux In tin- pant with the bow nnd
arrow rendered that weapon ns dangerous as
the Winchester rifle In use nmong them nt
the present day. In the past nil game was
killed with arrows , nnd the larder of the In
dian was kept well replenished by this
means ! .
Now that ( he government furnishes them
with everything that they need the red man
Is no longer compelled to depend upon his
bow and arrow to keep the wolf from his
tepee. Accordingly It Is doubtful If there Is
a solitary Indian on the entire Sioux reserva
tion who Is still nn expert with the primi
tive , but effective , weapon of bygone years.
"SlmM I liter lie Strong A
Many persons suffering from chronic
lack of vigor ask themselves this question
In vain. They have neglected the one sure
means of conferring what they lack nnd
long for. In a very brief time , If they
would but use Hosteller's Stomach Bitters ,
they would find their nppctlto nnd sleep
renewed nnd strength revived. The Bitters
will nlso surely remedy dyspepsia , malaria
and liver complaint.

Great excitement exists In the township of
Sacred Heart on account of the discovery of
an Immense paint mine on the farm of Mr.
Helgcson , not far from Rcnvlllc , Minn. , says
the Sioux Falls Argus-Leader. Some prospectors
poctors worn looking for asbestos when they
ran onto Indications of paint , nnd , upon going
down three feet , were very much surprised
nnd delighted to Hnd their expectations real
ized by uncovering n ppk-ndld deposit of red
ochre. The bed appears to be Inexhaustible ,
and In some purls Is from three to fourteen
feet deep. Mr. Helgcson Is not n very
wealthy man , nnd Is now nearly crazy over
the find , ns he considers that it will make
n rich man of him.
The craze has spread to his neighbors , who
arc neglecting the requirements of the farm
to prospect what they heretofore considered
worthless land Every piece of ml.-a that the
uninitiated fanner runs onto he thinks is a
chunk of gold , and nt once posts off to the
nearest "expert , " only to have' his bright
dream of golden wealth xhattcred by a laugh
and the Information that ho has n good
specimen of pyrlto or mica , ns the case may
be. The Impression prevails , however , that
the valley of the Minnesota lias considerable
