Sitting BuU. Tbe St. Paul Pioneer gives an aooount of a reporter's late interview with tbe old warrior. It is interesting to all wbo are admirers of Indian ebaraoter. Tbe writer says: Tbe face, to any one who has seen a Sionx chief, is strikingly characteristic The high, pointed, narrow forehead and the correspondingly-attenuated chin ; tbe prominent cheek bones and pronounced nose; the intent, wide-open eyes, afad mere than all, the Mephistophelean mouth, with its sardonic, sneering expression.conveying so much of unbelief and distrust, all goto make the tout eruemble of tbe intelligent, wily, soornf ul, suspicions savage whose barbarism has reooived obIj a lacquer of repression through attrition with civilized whites. The old man is poor that can be seen at a glanoe. Upon bis bead are no waving plumes, save tbo indispensable ooup feather which droops ns if iu sympathy with its owner's fallen fortunes. Inatead of the fur-trimmod braids and gaudy bead and headdress of t lie agency Indian is the simple UHDclktrc'ui-.-f safely may it be assumed it is crimed with tilth and age kuutted carelessly behind. The spectacles may strike some observers aa odd, but many Indians wear tbem, as a protection nguiost snow-blindness in winter, and the alkali dust of the plains in summer and Sitting Bull has reached the age when his eyes are "purging thiok amber and plum-tree gum," and need the covering the lenses aQord. As before stated, he is swarthy of oomplexion remarkably dark in faet and "ago has withered him," while lack of food and tbe continual trouble crowded into bis last few years, have given vigor to " decay's effacing lingers. Hitting Bull gave the following ao-count of himself: Interpreter " Where were you boro, and when 1 Sitting Bull" I don't know where I was born, and can not remember. I know that I was born, though, or would not be here. I was born of a woman. I know this is a iact, because I exist.'' SittiDg Bull here held a long conver sation with his uncle, Chief Four Horns, and after pointing at different augers for some time, said: "I was born tear old Fort George, on Willow Greek, below the mouth of tbe Cheyenne Iiiver. I am forty-four years old as near as I can tell. Wo count our years from tbe moons between great events, ine event from wmon l date my birth is the year in which Thunder Hawks was born. I am as old as he. I have always been running around. Indiana that remain on the same hunting grounds all the time can remember years better." Bsporter " How many wives and ohildren have you 1 " Sitting Bull (running over his fingers and then with his thumb and forefinger of one hand pinching and holding together two fingers of bis other hand) "I bave nine children and two living wives, and one wife that has gone to tbe Great Spirit. I have two pairs cf twins." Lieutenant Dowdy" Tell Sitting Bull he is more fortunate than I am. I can't get one wife." At this interruption Sitting Bull langhed. lleporter " Whioh' is your favorite wife?" Bitting Ball " I think as much of one as the other. If I did not I would not keep them. I think if I had a white wife I would think more of her than the other two." Reporter "Whst are the names of your wives?" Sitting Bull (raising the side of the tent and calling a squaw to him evidently he asked her)" Was Seen By The Nation is the name of the old one. The One That Had Four Bobes is the name of the other." Reporter ' Are you a chief by inheritance, and if not, what deeds of bravery gave you the title? " Sitting Bull " My father and two uncles were chiefs. My father's name was The Jumping Bull. My nncle that is in the teepee is called Four Horna, and my other nude was called Honting His Lodge. My father was a very rich man and owned a great many good ponies in four colors. In pouies he took much pride. They were roan, white and grey. He had great numbers, and I never wanted for a horse lo ride. When I was ten years old I was famous as a famous hunter. My specialty was buffalo calves. (Here Bull indicated with his arms how he killed the buffalo.) I gave the calves I killed to tbe poor that bad no horses. I was considered a good man. (Here Bull again counted on his fingers and joints ) My father died twenty-one years ago. ' For four years after I was ten years old I killed buffalo and fed his people, and thus became one of the fathers of the tribe. At tbe age of fourteen I killed an enemy, and began to make myself gnat in battle, and became a chief. Before Ibis, from tea to fourteen, nij people bad named me Tbe Sacred Htaudsboty. After killing an enemy the oallrd me TaTan Ka I You Tan K, or Bitting Ball. Ad Indian may be an inherited chief, but be has to make himself a obief by bis bravery. (Although several efforts were made. sod much tsot used, Sitting Ball wouu not speak of bis life beyond the age of fourtcoD.) Tbe pale faces bad things that we needed in order to bunt. We needed ammunition. Our interests were in place. I never sold that mnob land. (Here Sitting Bull pioked np with bis thumb and forefinger a little cf the pulverized dirt in tbe lent, end holding it np let it fall and blow away.) I never made or sold a treaty with the United States. I came in to claim mr rights and tbe rights of my people. I was driven in foroe from my land and I now come back to claim it for my people. I never made war on tbe United States Oovernment. I never stood in tbe white man's oonntry. I never oommittod any depredations in tbe white man's country. 1 never made tbe white man'a heart bloed. Tbe wbite man came on to my land and followed me. Tbe white man made fight for my bunting grounds. Tbe wbite man made me kill him, or be would kill my friends, my women and my ohildren." Reporter "The white man admires yonr conduct in a battle. Yon showed yourself to be a great chief in the Caster fight." Sitting Bull "There was a Great Spirit who guided and controlled that battle. I could do nothing. I was sustained by the great mysterious One." (Here Sitting Bull pointed qpward with bis forefinger.) Reporter "Yon oonduoted the battle well;- so well that many thought that yon were not an Indian, but that yon were a while man and knew tbe wbite man's ways." Sitting Bull (pointing to his wrist) " I was not a white man, for the Great Spirit did not make me while skin. I did not fight the wbite man's back. I came out and met him on tho grass. When I say limning Antelope is a fool I mean be made treaties and allowed the white man to come in and occupy our land. Ever sinoe that time there has been trouble. I do not want aid or assistance from tbe whites or anyone else. I wunt them to stay from my country, and allow me to hunt in my own laud. I want no blood spilled on my land, exoept the blood of the buffalo. I want to hunt and trade for many moons. You bave asked me to come In. I wanted the white man to provide for me for several years, if I came in. You have never effored me any inducements, to come in. I did not want to come. My friends that came got soap and ax-handles, but not enough to eat. I have come iu, and want the white man to allow me to hunt in my own oonntry. That is the way I live. I want to keep my ponies. I oan't hunt without ponies. The buffalo runs fact. The wbite man wunted me to give up everything." . Reporter" Wbat treatment do you expeot from the Government? If not satisfied, what shall you do ? " Sitting Bull" I expeoted to stay but a few days at Buford. When I came in I did not surrender. I want the Government to let me occupy, the Little Missouri country. There is plenty of game there. I bave damages against the Government for holding my land and game. I want the Great Father to pay me for it." The reporter here asked tbe interpreter to get an idea of what Sitting Bull meant by the Little Missouri country. Sitting Bull " My hunting ground is from tbe bad lauds to the end of the Little Missouri, and I want it extended down here, where eome of my people are, so that I can trade." Reporter " What do Chiefs Gall and Running Autwlope say about their treatment beie?" Sitting Bull "Antelope is a fool. I have seen Gall. He can't tell me any thing. Ha is not a chief of my peo ple." , Reporter " Don't you think the Indians here are treated well Sittiug Bull" I have not had a ohanoe to talk with them. They are waiting for me to speak. They want to give me a fast and bold a council. I am not j-ulous of them. I don't know whether we will bold a council or not." Reporter 'Tell ns all about the Ouster battle. How did it happen? Did you direct the main foroes " Sitting Bull (after a Ion? silence) "I am not afraid to talk ubout that It all happened, it is past arid gone. I do not lie, but do not want to talk about it. Low Dog Buys I can't fight until some one lends me a heart. Gall says my heart is no bigger than that (plao ing one forefinger at the base of the nail of another linger.) We bave all fought bard. We did not know Custer. When we saw him we threw up our hands and I cried, ' Follow me and do as I do.' We whipped each other's horses, and it was all over. Reporter " Custer's men were all killed. There is no one to tell us about the battle but you. We keep a record of our battles and study them. We write histories of brave men. We will never fight tbe Sionx again. Tell ns more about it." Sitting Bill "There was not as many Indians as the white man says. They are all warriors. There was not more than I.vw. Reporter " Cror King says on the second day, when you were fighting lieno smen, that you asked your war riors not to kill any more, that yon had already killed enough." Sitting BuU "Crow King speaks the trutb; ldici not want to kill any more men. I did not like that kind of work. I only defended my camp. When we had killed enough, that was all that was neoessary. The art of not bearing should be taught in every well-regulated family. It is fully as inui ortant to domestio Happiness as a cultivated ear, for which so much money and time are expended. There are so many . things whioh it is painful and minrious to bear very many which, if heard, will disturb the temper, corrupt simplicity and modesty, distract from contentment and happiness that every one ehonld ba educated to take in or shut out sounds, according to their pleasure. It costs more to avenge wrongs than to pear mem. Knocking la Vain. Tbe following sad inoidont told by n eyo-wltnessof tho toone, in Philadelphia will recall to many readers tbe thrilling pioture given in tbe twentieth verse of tbe third chapter of Revelation. Directly opposito tbe narrator's dwelling stood the home of a riob and unprincipled man. By day it was as still as a prison, but at night it was the bannt of loose ooupany and tbe toene of revelries and dissipation. Occasionally, in tbe daytime, the face of a beautiful young woman would appear at one of the windows. The window, in faot, seemed to be her loiter-ing-place, for she spent much of ber idle time tbero, sitting behind tbe partly closed blind. Thoro was no sign that she enjoyed the luxury aronnd her. Her face bad tbe bard, drawn expression suggestive of "painted misery." Her position in Ihe rioh man's bouso was a guilty one, for she bad abandoned a pure borne to live on tbe wagos of disgraoo. Une morning, while she sat in ber nsual plaoe, a carriage stopped at the nonse. a gray-naired man got out of it and knooked at the door. The young woman saw him with a start of surprise but she did not stir from the window. Rigid and pale, she looked down through the blind-lattice, watohing every movement, but making no sign. The old man plied tho knocker long and loudly till the neighbors noticed him and wondered. But be knooked in vain. No servant would open the door without the distress' order. She kept ber conoealment and silently looked on, till the visitor went away. An nour later, tue same carriage stopped again. The same gray-haired man knocked tho scoond time at the door. The same unhappy face looked down npon him through the lattioe but there was no answer to his oall, and in grief he went away. A third time that day the old man renewed his visit. The pale watoher at the window watohed him as before, withont relenting, without responding. He turned slowly away and in tears was heard to exolaim, "U bmily! Emily I My daughter, my poor, dear daughter!' That father had traveled a long journey on his sad snd eager errand. He had traced his erring child to this house, and waiting until her destroyer was away, be had hoped that she would see him. She knew his errand. Her heart had beaten more quickly as she looked down upon his gray hairs. Her pale cheeks and rigid mouth told of a oon-tlict within. Perhaps the old love of her pretty, wayward childhood, that had seemed dead for many a day, oanio to life again, and pleaded for him, and for God, as ho stood there at the door and knocked. Bat enslaved and helplesswith eyes from whose troubled depths looked forth a ruined soul she let him go without a word or sign. Do you pity that old man going an ay to his childless home, heart-broken and alone? Yes; bntmore to be pitied is she iu whoto soul tho horrors of a life of shame must find their home, and over whose pathway hangs the gloom of an outcast's death. Youth's Companion. Mr. Bradlaugh makes a Sensation. Tbe honor of dividing the interest of English political circles with Mr. Parnell belong:, at present to Mr. Brad- laugh. It will be remembered that more than a Tear ago Mr. Bradlaugh declined lo take the oath prescribed by statute for members of the House of Commons, and posed for a time as the martyr-champion of liberty of eon-science. He was afterwards admitted on his aCirmation and took his seat, but the" Courts decided that his admission was illegal. This decision entailed oh him a heavy fine for every time he had voted while illegally ocoapyiuK his seat, amounting in the aggregate to several thousand pounds. Mr. ISrad-laugh appealed to his constituents for re-election, and was again returne I to the House. Ho then offored to take the oath as a matter of form, but as be had previously deolured that he dil not consider au oath more binding than a mere pledge, objection was made. For several months his case has stood thus. He is a regularly and legally choeen member of the House, ready to take the oath prescribed by statute, but is not allowed by the House to da so, and therefore is not a momber of that body. Mr. Bradlaugh has entered the House several times, and "has been removed by order of the Speaker. List week he attempted to make a forcible entry, and had to be foroibly thrust out of the lobby into the street by several stalwart policemen. New York Chroniole. The shameful delays in the punishment of criminals were never better illustrated than in the case of Nathan Orlando Greenfield, who was aooused of murdering his wifo, at Orwell, Oswego Co., Got. 21, 1875. He was tried, and tbe jury disagreed. A second trial resulted in a verdict of guilty. Then began the writs of error, appeals, and all that sort of thing, until tbe Court of Appeals ordered a uew trial on the soore of a technical error. A new trial was had. with a change of venue to Syracuse, and a verdict of guilty was rendered again. Then came another legal battle, and in all there were five stays of proceedings and reprieves. Lwt Friday tbe man was hung, five years and nine months after the com' mission of the orime. That such a case should be permitted to drag along in this way is a disgrace to our laws, and deserves the death-penalty of nearly all its force as deterrent from orime. It is said that under the new Code Buch delays will not be possible, and every good citizen will hope that this will prove to be the fact. A law tbe execution of whioh can be avoided for eu long a time, is only half a law. New York Examiner. Raspbebby Jam. Take equal weight of red currants and raspberries, or come take one-third currants and two-thirds raspberries and of sugar, three- quarters of a pound of best loaf, to eaoh pound of fruit. Cover the fruit with tbe sugar over night, and tbe next day boil all together slowly for an hour, skimming if necessary. Put it iu small jars, and fasten down when hot, with egg, on brandy paper. It will keep well and makes a delioious sweetmeat. Or use only raspberries, and some boil the fruit fifteen or twenty minutes, then add sugar and boil thirty or forty minutes, stirring almost constantly, Summer Hotels. It is significant faot that each succeeding season shows that tbe large summer hotels that soore brilliant or even mediocre tuocess ere growing smaller end more widely scattered. A mere superficial analysis wiil indioato at once to tbe mind trained to business principles that tbe disease is fatal one, and we can only hope that tbe time may be extended beyond onr present anticipation when it will become nee ess ary for ns to obroniole tbe faot that well meant efforts at centralization bave culminated in bnge monuments to folly in tbe shape of large summer hotels withont guests. It is folly born of tbe grossest misconception of tbe ebaraoter and habits of tbe American people to assume that the majority of tbe summer travel is to be deflected to spots where health, recuperation, quiet, rest and enjoyment are misnomers and where in reality fashion's foibles and excesses are the rnling attraction. Tbe faot is, that the American people at olaas are possessed of sound sense. Imbued with business principles and not inolined to pay from $3 to 5 day for any great length of time for snob questionable enjoyment. The result is -that the guest at a large fashionable -summer hotel is only a transient, remaining soaroely a week, morefequent-ly but a day. The paying season for . these houses is thus rednoed to a minimum of from four to six weeks at the height of the season, tbe profits of which are likely to be offset by the losses of the commencement and end of tbe season, for the expense is abont the same whether the house be orowded to overflowing or but one-balf or one-fourth full. We are sorry for the owners and lessees of these white elephants bnt proud ef the fact that Amerioans realize and distinguish between the true health-giving rest and quiet found at tbe modest hotel of twenty-five -rooms surrounded by all that is beauti ful in nature and the continuous exoitement and strain of a fashionable I, summer resort hotel.
