Pine Cheek, W. T., June 21, 1877.
THE INDIAN WAR.
There has been great excitement about
the Indians in tlie last lew days up here,
but T believe it is all over now. People
were panic stricken and all rushed to Col
fax for protection, when there was no real
danger , Old Thunder, Chief of the Palou.-e,
told tue, the first I knew of if.
The trouble Is with Joseph's baud, in the
Wallo'va valley, some hundred or two
tntles from here. Sunday night, the 17th,
' tlM report came in after night that the In
dians were upon us, and we all rushed for
O. W. McQueen's place. The next morn
ing the peopIe"bc'gan to start lor Colfax,
and a good many went on to Walla Walla.
The fewof us that remained started a run
ner to Couer d'Alene, seven miles northeast
of us; then we sent another to Palouse
Oityv fifteen miles south. The runners
came back and reported all quiet. The
Chief of the Couer d'Alenes sent a messen
ger over to us, and-told us if there was any
danger t he would let- us know, and come
over and help us. This was on tlie 18th of
. the month. On the same, evening there
came two Spokane Indians to us, who re
ported that the hostile Indians were within
twenty-five miles of us and coming straight
for Pine ereck. Thus warned, the balance
f the' settlement, to-wit : eleven women,
twenty or twenty-five men besides the chil
dren, started for Colfax at sundown. We
had only ten guns and a limited amount of
amcnotiHion. Some ot us thought it was
all gammon, and didn't want to go, but
did go with the rest. I, with a few others,
wanted to go to Hangman's creek, where
the Couer d'Alenes were, and stay with
them.' Besides the Couer d'Alenes, there
are the Palouse from the mouth of Palouse
creek, a large number of Xez Perces and
Spokaaa, a number of Yakiinas and mem
bers ot other tribes, aW gathered there to
dig camaa and run horse races the annual
custon for years. And at tlie present time,
while I am writing this, they are gathered
there' in large numbers, and ail are friendly.
I have talked to some of them they pass
fey . my'-'bkrae every A&y, and a good many
stop While wo were absent at Colfax,
t&e Chief sect sone t bis men over to
watch oar crops, awl to keep- any ill dis
posed' persons from plundering our houses
and-driv'm off our stock.. There were a
few things taken out of our house by some
ene. There are always few in every In
dian tribe that will steal anything and cv-
vrything they can get their hands on.
After we had all left, the Couer d'Alencs
sent us word to come back, and if we were
afraid, to come over and camp with them,
and they would look after our crojs, or, if
this didn't suit, we could stay at home and
they would come over and camp 'with us.
The most of us are at home at work just
as though nothing had happened. People
who are talking of. coming to this country,
need not be deterred from coming, for there
is no danger. If we that are here are not
afraid to stay, they certainly can come and
stay with us.
Look fine here. We have grain heading
out. We expect to get from forty to fifty
bushels ot wheat per acre. The only pest
we have is the squirrels, and we are killing
them off by the thousands. We confident
ly expect to ;et a good price for our grain.
We anticipate having a good time on the
FOL'KTII OF JULY.
Wc will have a bis dinner and invite the
Indians over to help us eat it.
From the report south of Lcwiston some
forty or fifty miles, they have had some
trouble with the redskins, and have hud a
fight or two. but to what extent I do not
know. If there is any more news I will
report in duo time. J. M. Pi:orsr.
Heroism or Moiileneirrlu Women.
Montenegrin women have the same
passionate attachment with the men to
family and country, and display much
of the came valor. CJoptchevitch sup
plies two most remarkab'c examples.
I A fistcraiKlivMH"t)rothers. the four of
cour e wen arnica, are making a pil
grimage or excursion to a church. The
state o'f war with the Turk being norm
al, we need not wonder when we learn
that they arc attacked unawares on
their way, in a pass where they prrceed
in sing'e tile, by seven armed Turku,
who announce themselves by shooting
dend the first of tlie brotheis and danr
gerously wounding the second. The
odds are fearful, but the tight proceeds.
The wounded man leans against the
rock, and though he receives another
and fatal ' shot, kills two of the Turks
betore he dies. The sister presses for
ward and grasps his riHe and his dag
ger. At last all are killed or both
sides excepting herself and a single Turk.
She asks fur mercy, and he promises it,
but names her maidenly honor as the
price. Indignant, and perceiving that
now he is oft" Lis guard, t-he ttahs him
with the dagger. He tears it from her
hand, they close, and she dashes the
wretch over the precipice into the yawn
ing depth below.
The second anecdote is i ot less singu
lar. Tidings reach a Montenegrin wife
that her husband hasjuet been slain by
a party under the command of a certain
Aga. Knowing the road by which
they are traveling, she seizes a rifle,
chooses her position and 6hoots the Aga
dead. The rest of the jtarty take to
flight. The wife of the dead Aga sends
her an epistle. "Thou hast robbed me
of both my eyes. Thou art a genuine
daughter of Tscrnagora. Come to-morrow
alone to the border line, and we
will prove by trial which of us was the
better wife." The Tseruagorine ap
peared ecpi!ped with the arms tf the
dead Aga, and alone, as she was invited.
But the Turkish woman had thought
prudence the belter part of valor and
brought an armed champion with her,
who charged her on horseback. She
shot him dead as he advanced, and
seizins her faithless antagonist, bound
her and took her home, kept her as a
nurse maid for fourteen years, and theu
let her go bnck to liar place and people.

Nevcr try to rob anyone of his good
opinion ot himself. It is the most cruel
thing you can do. Moreover it is by no
means doing as yon would be done by.
Crush a woman's self-esteem, and you
make her cross-grained and snappish.
Do the same with a man, and you can
only make him morose. You may mean
to create a sweet, humble creature, but
you'll never do it. The people who
think best of themselves are apt to be
the best. Women grow pretty in believ

Loxg. The Rev. J. T. Gracey in a
letter irom Liberia, Africa, tot lie Chris
tian. Advocate, says:
. There is a .-roarl road ("path") from
Cape Mount back through tlie country
of tlie Uocziee, said to be wide enough
for even vehicles to travel over, and
through this region horses thrive, being
in abundance as one recedes from the
coast. Here, then, is already one bioad
highway after the fashion ot the country,
back from this high and comparatively
healthy starting point at Cape Mount.
"This is tl-,e road to Egypt," said the

of Churchill county, to- open the regular
term ot the court in that county. The
following are the ceremonies incident to
a terra of cou't in Churchill county :
The Judge arrives at the county seat,
puts up his team, and sends an Indian
runner in search of the Sheriff and
County Clerk. The Sheriff and Clerk
arrive, and the Sherift standing up in
his stirrups, proclaims: "Hear ye, hear
ye, hear ye, the District Court of the
Fifth Judicial District in and for
Churchill county is now open." Then
the Judge hitches up his team, gets
into his buggy, and says: "Mr. Clerk,
this Court stands adjourned for the
term." Then the Sherift and Clerk and
Indian sit down in the sagebrush and
play Indian poker, and the Judge bids
them a pleasant good-bye and drives
on. Austin, Rectilk.
Everlasting Fence Posts. A cor
respondent of the TVestcrn Rural says :
I discovered many years ago that wood
could be made to last longer than iron
in the ground, but thought the process
so simple and inexpensive that it was
not worth while making any stir about
it. I would as soon have poplar, bass
wood or quaking ash as any other kind
of timber, for fence posts. I have tak
en out basswood posts after having been
set seven years, that were aw sound when
taken up as when they were first put in
the ground. Time and weather seems
to have no effect on them. The posts
can le prepared ,for less than two cents
a piece. Foi the benefit ot others ' I
will give you the receipt : Take boiled
linseed oil and stir in it pulverized char
coal to the consistency ot paint. Put a
coat of this over the timber, and there
is no man that will live to sec it rotten.

Saturday a prominence in these apt
terms . A Saturday can never pass, un
less we bestow upon it a mark of recog

the "doxologer" of the week. Our
country friends come in town, rain or
shine and all is buzz and bustle even if
there isn't a cent 6cnt. With most of
them, their credit is good which is equal
to cash, only not quite so handy. Last
Saturday was a big, large fine day.
Our farmers looked jubilant and who
can b'ame tbem ? A bounteous harvest
blooms befora every door, the price ot
wheat is way up and they feel ditto.
Let them keep that "feel" and make
hay while the sun shines.
The quantity of food from a well-fed
