HAS RELIC OF SITTING BULL
south Dakota Stata Historical Soeioty
ProaontoS With Famous Chief,
tam’o Pipe of Poaco.
The famous old pipe of peace of
the Indian chief, Sitting Bull, has
been presented to the South Dakota
State Historical society by H. C.
Pryor of the Aberdeen Normal
On the »tern of the relic, burned
or inked into the wood, is the auto
graph of the warrior. The bowl of
the pipe is of pink sandstone from
the quarries at Pipestone, Minn.
The stem is about twenty inches
long, and is of ash wood. The pipe,
was traded to Mr. Pryor’s father, I.
D. Pryor, now a resident of Los An
geles, by Sitting Bull, at Camp
Crook in 1887, for a blanket.
The story goes that Sitting Bull
had just been released from prison
at Fort Handall, and was making
his way northward to the reserva
tion. Always ready to pick up a
few dollars, he stopped off at Pierre.
S. D., and started a flourishing
business selling his autographed
cards at $1 each. It seems that his
name was about the only thing Sit
ting Bull could write in English,
and he was very proud of it. Some
one induced him to step into the
telegraph office there and write hia
name on a number of harmless look
ing message blanks. The Indian’a
anger rose to white heat when he
discovered that carbon had been in
serted between several sheets under
the one on which he wrote.
Big Alligator Negro«* Prlaa.
Two negroes were attacked by a
huge alligator In West Caney swamps,
near Orange, Texas. The big saurian,
which measured ten feet, chased one
of the negroes up a tree. The other
negro in the meantime placed eight
bullets in the center of its head. The
negroes, who had encountered the alli
gator while tishlng, returned to the
spot where the battle occurred next
morning, and found It dead. They
towed It through the marshes to the
northern limits of the city.
