A noose is ninde at end of a long, stont cord .nnd over the mouth of the hole. The is*then passed through a j)n!lev or Chilton has the distinction of harw boring within its braits the oldest resident of Calumet county and a direct descendant of Kingj Philip, of colonial fame. The psrson who lays claims to this royal ^prerogative is Mrs. Catherine .Stanton, a fall-blooded Nyantic Indian woman, jsays the •Vfilwaukee Evening Wisconslp. She is of very great age, j )robably about 90 years, although some declare that she has passed the century mark. She is certainly what she claims, a descendant of the great Indian sachem, and a genealogy of her family from the time of Ninegret, the chief of the Nyantics, and son-in-law of Philip, corroborates her assejrtion. In her own words it is thus: "Ninegret had, among other children, a son named Charles Augustus, who in turn had a son styled by his people as Great Harry. Great Harry had a son named Christopher, who was the father of A second Christopher and a daughter named Catherine, who was my grandmotner. Catherine was my fatlier's mother, and her brother Christopher liiul two children, Augu.stus aiul Mary, the latter being my mother. .So i am a descendant of Ninegret."the son-in-law of I'hili)). on boili niy I'at Iter's and iny tiiotJier's side, aiul c !;;isi (jnently 1 claim an undoiibti-d rclat ioTiship to Xiiicirrct." It v,i!l (jb-cpved that she is descended not froiii a son of Philif). but from il;nij;Iiter. As the descexidtint of Ninegret. she is one of the few chiiniants to a larsre tract of liind reserved by him about the time of Kitig l'hili])'s war. One portion of this reservation was thirty miles of water frontage, ten rods above high-water mark. There his people might fish undistrubed. and that Ninegret exercised wi.sdom and foresight in the selection of his reservation is apparent from the fact that the site is now oecu|)ied by one of the largest and most fashionable summer resorts in the Kast. King Philip 's war. so destructive to the Narrangansetts. left the remaining few of the tribe homeless and destitute, and Ninegret, seeing the distress of his kiiisnuMi. allowed them to settle upon his land. Here undisturbed, the remnant of Philip 's i people increa.sed to such an extent sc. .Ninegret was forced to invoke the aid of the state in removing them. Soon, however, Ninegret died, and his followers left the reservation. Thus the Narragansetts, returning, took complete possession, and eventually sold the land. Still, the descendant of Ninegret were the real claimants, and • Mrs. Stanton, believing herself to be • the sole heir, communicated with the Khode Island authorities, with the result that she wtis offered the .sum of .$100,000,000 on condition that she relinquish all claims to tne land. As it chanced, however, other and nearer heirs sprang up, and they, objecting to such a disposition of the property, appealed to the national government. If their claim is allowed, as in all jirobability it will be, the old lady will come into possession of a fortune befitting lier ro\-al lip.gage. 'From infancv to the'age of 32 years J. H.

The day of the wild, utterly untaught savage had passed, and, although many of the customs were still extant, the native languagre and dre«s had practically disappeared. .\f'ter leaving school, Mrs. Stan'ton, or Catherine Ross, as. her name then was, entered the service of a daughter of SenatorDick.son as housekeeper, in which capacity she remained until her employer left for V^urope. Returning to her home among the Indians, she married Cato Stanton in 1*44, immigrating the following 3-ear to what is now the city of Canton, in Wisconsin. It was in .January, 1843, that they arrived at their new home and erected a rude dwelling of logs 3lose to the north bank of the Manitowoc river. There, alone in the barren, desolate waste of forest, miles awaj' from any settlement, and not even the pudiment -s of a path to guide them, they lived through that first winter.
