How Bucks Mild Squaws Enjoy Life at Un
cle Saui's Expense.
For some months a lot of women
and children, captured by Captains
Crawford and Davis, have partaken of
the hospitality of a log cabin adjoining
the guard-house, diluted with sufficient
freedom. The youngsters romped out
side at will and the squaws adorned
the porch of the guard-house daily.
They were a rather industrious set and
turned many a proper peso by weaving
handsome baskets of bear-grass in the
Moqui style, making moccasins for the
soldiers and constructing toy models of
their unique cradles. They were also
given some light v.-ork to do around
the post, which helped to keep them
healthy and happy. Among these cap
tives were several children of Natchez,
two of Geronimo’s wives and a son
and daughter of the same redoubtable
renegade. When Lieutenant Faison
arrived with his fifty-eight prisoners
from the Sonora surrender the guard
house captives were led out to join
them. It was a happy reunion.
Chief Chihuahua was especially de
lighted to meet again his wife and
three children. The whole band went
down to a little dry arroyo, three-
fourths of a mile from the post, and
camped amid the sand and rocks.
Fire-wood and rations were hauled out
to them and they quickly made them
selves comfortable. For the first day
the improvements comprised only a
grubbing of cacti and the building of
semi-circular wind-breaks with bushes,
etc. But soon the patient squaws had
achieved a village. The tall stalks
of the century plant were peaked over
the spaces inclosed by wind-breaks,
and around these rude tent-poles were
stretched blankets or numerous rods of
unbleached muslin. These roofs were,
on an average, about three and one-
half feet from the ground. The gen
eral effect of each tent reminded one
of such an umbrella as our friend lends
us on a rainy day. They were effective,
however, in keeping off the wind and
sun—which is where they overmatched
While the squaws trudged about in
these domestic pursuits, the bucks were
equally industrious—in gambling. They
squatted around blankets spread in the
sand, and deftly dealt poonkan (.he
Mexican monte), slapping down their
plavs with the pecnliar vehemence
which you may see as well in a saloon
as in an Apache camp. They gambled
for money, for cartridges, for blankets
and for ponies. Their chips were
sometimes coffee beans, sometimes
cartridges, and often neat slivers of
bear grass, cleverly bundled. A fair
share of the day, however, they rested
from gambling to personal adornment.

you would stumble upon an athletic
warrior, carefully painting his face in
crimson rings and stripes, or, mayhap,
mollifying his great crop of hair with
a fist-size chunk of mutton tallow—base

delicacy of civilized refinement in
rouge and perfumed lard!
The Chiricahuas are a straight, ath
