Tb E-wd-teary Chief ot tbt Biota
There was a funeral at the Pin
Ridge Agency a few weekB ago of an
lwliun duel, wno was a mare imnw,
-and as great in diplomacy aa he was.ia
llis name was Young-Man-Afraid-of-IIi8-Uors,
and he was the hereditary
chief of the whole Sioux nation. He
was fifty-eight years of age at the time
of his death, and was a son of the fa
mous old warrior "A-Mon-Afraid-of-Ilis-Horscs,"
who died in 1889 at the
age of ninety-two, and whose life Is
intimately connected with the frontier
history of thiB country since the early
davs of the century.
When an Indian wants to emphasise,
a fact strongly, he says the exact op
posite of what he means, and so the
name of the dead chief is a specimen
of Indian satire.
His father, in his fights with other
Indians, adopted the tactics of the
whites. The usual method of the In
dians is to ride "In circles around the
object of attack, narrowing the diam
eter of the circle as the fight proceeds.
But the father used the regulation
cavalry charge a method of warfare
that at once distinguished him, and he
was given a name which meant "a
man of whose horses the enemy is
afraid." The Sioux satirist thought to
improve on this and condensed it to:
The old man's son, the chief now
dead, continued his father's system of
tactics, Bnd. with the chieftaincy, was
given the title: " Young-Man-Afraid-of-His-Horscs."
He was contemporaneous as a chief
tain of the Sioux with such Indians as
Red Cloud. Sitting Bull; Spotted Tail,
American Horse, Black Bear, Lone
Wolf. Red Leaf and White Thunder,
all of whom were men of undoubted
courage and natural leaders of their
He occupied a peculiar position as
chief. His- Indian subjects believed
that he had great influence with the
whites, and they were constantly as
ing him to have their grievances re-
On the other hand, Gens. Crook and
WlleB recognised that his sway was
less disputed than that of any other
Indian chief, and they used him to ac
complish results which, withont nun,
could only have been secured by
threats and hard fighting.
He recognized the great strength of
the whites, and became a wise meui-
a tor. He was also-possessed of excep
tional ability, and saw that there was
greater honor to himself and benefit to
his neonle bv living in peace, both with
the white and the red" men, than in be
ing in constant conliict with them.
At one time, he had a habit -of going
out on a hunt with a small force, meet-
ii!-r a superior force of Crows or Paw
nees, giving them battle and coming
But about twelve years ago, he and
a band of Sioux went to the Little Mis
souri on a buffalo hunt. Spotted Horse
and Crazy Head, two of the biggest
chiefs of the Crows, were also there
with a party of their people. Young'
Wan-Afraid, instead of fighting his
hereditary enemie3, arranged a peace
treaty, and since that time the two na
tions have been the best ot mends.
tic recognized the fact that with the
disappearance of the buffalo the In
dian of the plains would no longer be
able to resist the advance of civiliza
tion, and, although a great buffalo
hunter, he made a strong effort to pre
serve that animal.
But when its extermination was as
sured, he advocated peace with-Hhe
whites, and was ever trnsndiy witn
them, although sometimes strongly
tempted otherwise. i " 1
In 1890 and 1801, when the Messiah
craze was at its height, and the Sioux
were engaged in ghost dances, the
dead chief did not encourage them, and
could not eee that they would get any
lieuciit iroia their actions, but he held
that noons had a right to interfere
with them unless they committed some

In those townsnips in wmcn tne agri

of this abandonment the report says:
There is a strange fascination in city
life which has always existed and
which leads many who are under its
spell to prefer poverty and privation in
the city to independence and comfort
in the country. This fascination is in
tensified by the undoubted benefits
which the modern olty offers to those
within or near it And yet it must oe
ulmitted that the promise which leads,
tn the abandonment of country life is
frequently unfulfilled. The movement

market in two wavs; it may lead to a
dearth of agricultural labor in'the.de
pleted districts, thus adding, to the
burdens which tn too many oases -uie
farmer already bears, and it may in
tensify the competition to which the
oity laborer is subjected, both as to
employment ana as to wages. nn
competition reacts upon those -who
come to the city for the purpose of im
proving their fortunes, only to find the
onnostunities open to them constantly
growing less. On the other hand, the
life of the farmer, notwithstanding its
burdens, was never so easy in many re
spects as at present The improve

lightened farm labor, while the rail

Gillet, a professional mendieitnt of
raris, has the peculiar merit of being
the organizer of a trick for raising
funds which was unknown and un
dreamed of In the philosophy of the
ablest repre:.ontatives of the old Lour
des Miracles, says a writer in the
London Tnlcgrnph. He pretended to
hang himself from a tree seven times
during the summer, and on each occa
sion he was cut down from his gibbet
by (lood fcumaritans, who invariably
sent round the hat for him on the spot.
In some instances the rescuers may
have been (lillet's confederates, but ac
cording to what can be gathered he
usually preferred to work alone. Hav
ing selected a fine day for his opera
tions, Gillet dressed himself carefully
and went to the woods of Boulogne or
Vincennes, He next made choice of a
tree near where youug children were
playing, and having put a noose round
his neck strung himself up. Then he
crooned and attracted the sMItrren,
who ran in alarm to their mothers or
nurses, until in a moment there was a
crowd around him. Men summoned to
the spot and sometimes the women
who were called, extricated the artful
mendicant from his apparently peril
ous position. He was extended on the
grass, his hands were rubbed, cordials
were pressed to his Hps and smell
ing bottles put under his nose.
When he revived the first question put
to him was naturally: Why did ho
do it? Pointing to a pocket of his coat
he would say: "Here is a letter which
will explain all!" The document be
ing opened contained a communication
to the effect that Gillet wanted to
hang himself of his own free will. HiB
desire to die was caused by destitution,
and he had not eaten for two days. A
collection being made for the Bufferer
he instantly regained the use of his

The sovereign in Europe who stands
most in need of a friend and compan
ion whose fidelity 'and' loyalty are
above all suspicion is the unfortunate
etar, who, like his predecessors on the
throne of Peter the Great, has so often
found himself deceived and betrayed
by just those of his courtiers, his offi
cials and even his relatives upon wnom
he had bestowed the greatest amount
Under these circumstances it is not
astonishing, says the New York Trib
une, that he should place hii principal
reliance on a anperb and h'.i, 'e Danish
dog, with short, mouse-coluved hair
and quite as big as a young aonucy.
The doe. a eift of his father-in-law,
King Christian, of Denmark, is the
successor of a similar hound, which
lost its life in the terrible railroad ac
cident at Borki, when the imperial
train was entirely destroyed, the czar
and czarina escaping all injury save
. the shock to their nerves in the most
miraculous manner. Alexander's pres
ent dog is not only by his side when he
walks out, asleep beside bis beu at
night, bnt is also present when he
grants audiences, sniffing at strangei-!-
in an inquiring and sometimes suipi-
-cious manner, which is not witnout
exercising a certain influence upon the
treatment accorded by the czar to his
Hale aa4 aurte Uraiiu.
A physician who has had much expe
rience of the insane has examined the
brains of one thousand six hundred
subject. He comes to the conclusion
that nature makes palpable difference
between male and female brains.
First, there is a difference in weight,
the male beta heavier, possibly by
one ounce, relative to weight of body?
second, while the frontal lotics arc
equal in the sexes, the parietal are
lanrer in the male and the occipital in
the female, who, consequently, has
rmicker perceptions; thud, tne lemaic
brain is less convoluted in the gray
matter and has less service; fourth, the
blood supply is more copious in the
anterior lobes in the male and the
posterior has a larger supply in the fe
male, and these parts have diScrent
activities. The blood of the feniale is
also poorer in corpuscles, there bcinK
half a million less in a cubic niilli
meter. He fears tbat the tendency of
too much education or intellectual de
velopment in women it to make them
lose beauty. He instances the Zovo
women of India. They ore supreme,
They woo the men, control tho affairs
of the home and nation, transmit prop
erty and leave man nothing to do. The
result is that they are the ugliest
women on earth.
Magistrate (to prisoner) : "You are
found vulltv of meeting the plaintiff in
a lonely street, knocking him down, and
robbing him of everything except a
valuable gold watch which he had with
him. What have you to say?" Pris
oner "Had be a gold watch with him
at the time?" Magistrate:
sympathizers treated them to a brief
autobiographical sketch, which set
forth that he was a respectable young
man from the country who had been
stranded in Paris and could flnd.no
work to do. It is recorded that Gillet
performed this trick with great suc
cess between July and September, not
only in the woods about Paris, but
also in the park at Versailles and in
the forest of Ht Germain, in tne last
mentioned place he had the good for
tune to be cut down just as a generous
Paris banker was passing by, who gave
him a liberal donation. Gillet natur
ally took care to tie his noose in a man
ner calculated to proauce me eiieei
which ho intended without imperiling
his life. In the winter, when the
woods arc comparatively deserted, Gil
let adopted the old trick of pretending
to faint or to novo an epileptic fit at
the comer of the street. His fraud
has at last been detected and charita
ble people have been warned iifraiust
his knavery, which has not only de
ceived ordinary men and women "but
also astute members of the police force.

New Jersey ferry companies, the ele
vated railroads of both New York and
lirooklyn and the various slot-machine
companies are regular customers tor
the exchange of cents for other money
at the sub-treasury. At times they
turn in enormous quantities, the slot
companies alone ranging between one
hundred tnd twenty-five and seven
hundred dollars a day. As might be
expected, all sorts of oddities in
the way of coin come in with the
quantity taken in the machines. In
addition to the counterfeits are scores
of "not one cents" of war times, metal
discs and foreign copper, Austrian
money predominating. As the copper
cent is simply a token, no matter what
its condition is, it is redeemed at par
if it can in any way be identified as
Uuited States money The popularity
of the slot machine a yenr or so
ago brought about a curious condi
tion of affairs in the country. This
was nothing short of a "cent famine."
The headquarters of the company is in
Sew York, and oil agents sent their
cents here for redemption, which
drained the country of its supply and
overstocked the minor coin vaults of
the subtreasury here with cents.
