TWENTY MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JULY 25 M 1935 TELLS DOMESTIC VIEWS OF CHIEF Sherman Describes Visit to Last Hereditary Head of Sans Arc Band. ALGONA, July 26.--An interesting story of polygamy as it was practiced by Indians of the northwest has been recalled by T. C. Sherman of this city, former right of way agent for the Milwaukee railroad, who in that capacity held many a parley with red skinned owners of the property through which the "iron horse" was destined to poke its nose. "Iron Lightning," sad Mr. Sherman, "was the last hereditary chieftain of the Sans Arc (without the bow) band of the Cheyenne river Sioux, a long haired warrior of the old school. His household consisted of three wives, his being one of the few remaining families of the plural marriage, and to this fact is my story related. Ilza Niemack Engaged as Violin Instructor at Teachers' College CHARLES CITY, July 25 Miss Ilza Niemack, well known concert violinist, has been engaged to teach violin at Iowa State Teachers' college, Cedar Falls. She has been acclaimed on the concert stage in Europe and America. Confused by Information. "The town of Red Elm, on the Faith branch of the C. M. St. P. and P. railway was located on an allotment he had chosen for his minor child, Agnes Iron Lightning. I was told by the agent at Cheyenne agency that she lived with her father on Cherry creek, about 90 miles from the agency in western South Dakota. He also told me of Iron Lightning's domestic arrangements. "I was a bit confused by this information as I at once jumped to the conclusion that children by the first wife wolud be legitimate and those by subsequent wives illegitimate, not knowing that a territorial enactment had declared all children in plural marriages were legitimate. I men Iron Lightning by appointment to purchase the quarter section wanted for station grounds and townsite. An interpreter acted for us. "I asked Iron Lightning which of his wives was the mother of Agnes. He replied, 'My first wife.' So far, so good. Then he added: Had Three Wives. "1 have three wives, White Buffalo, Pretty Elk and Red Crane; they are sisters and I married them all the same day.' Here was a. conundrum! I asked: " 'If you have three wives and married them all the same day, why do you say White Buffalo is your first wife?' "He answered, 'Because I made love to her first.' "Now by all the rules of love and war I thirik this establishes her precedence. I told the interpreter to say to Iron Lightning that I was not asking those questions from idle curiosity or to pry into his family affairs, but to be sure that title to the land I was buying would he good under the white man's law. Iron Lightning with a wave of his | hand said he understood that. Then I asked him how long he had live',! on Cherry creek. He drew himself up proudly and replied: " 'Ever since we fought Custer.'
