Reinforcements Called In. When it was established definitely through the scouts that it really waa the Snake himself In the belesgured company, couriers were aent at breakneck speed to Camp Hickory with the news to the militia commander. From that moment the night became one of concentrated activity. Fighters, under both civilian and military rule, were rushed to the scene, mounted and afoot. . Ammunition and aupply wagons, already loaded for emergencies, soon were rumbling on their wsy to the front. Various posses out rounding up bad In dians were reached as far as possible and ordered to a position in the line around the chief and his aides. Qun fighters from the ranches took their places in the circle. Farmers, in order that the protection of their homes might be made doubly sure came armed with runs of various patterns and made the line stronger by their pres ence. It was an uprising of the whites against the reds and lawless blacks. This motley but grim and efficient body pre sented a determined front and insisted on having a finality of the thing then and there. Craiy Snake waa cornered at last.

Their apprehension was not without cause, for to the south and east of Pierce scattered 8nake bands were hid den tn the hills, while still others had gone to the northeast retreats, making Pierce the center of the district buffeted by the uprising. With these desperate ones near, and with the attention of the authorities very, naturally diverted for the moment to Crazy Snake and the chances for his cap ture, the farms would have been an easy prey for sliders.
