WHITE & MARTIN
Herrill, who is lately from
Benton county and in the employ of James
Miller, had a deathly terror for Indians, and
his fellow workmen, while camped at Cold
Springs, concluded to play a practical joke
on him. At an appointed time one of them
hit a pan a tremendous blow, when a hue
and cry was raised that the Indians were
after them and a general rush was made
from the eamp. One man acted as though
he was pulling an arrow trom another, who
was crying “I’m shot! I'm shot!” and sun-
dry maneuvers wero indulged in, which
doubtless left no doubt in the mind of Her
rill that they were in reality pursued by
Indians, and he ran with all might and
main from the scene. The others shortly
returned to camp, but Herrill did not make
his appearance. A search was instituted,
but all efforts were in vain. Upto the pres
