Colorltw Uguid in our 'Bravest' Was Rank Given Pawnee Lad BY HAROLD GLUCK pE-TA-LA-SHA-ROO was the * ion of La-te-le-sha, or Old Knife, a Pawnee chief. Pe-ta-la- sha-roo was a brave, that is. one who has greatly distinguished himself in battle, and is next in importance to a chief. At the t»rly age of twenty-one, this young man had, by his heroic deeds, acquired for himself the rank tA "the bravest of the braves." The savage practice of torturing and burning to death their prisoners existed in this tribe. The humane La-te-le-sha had long endeavored to put a stop to their cruel custom, but in vain. In a warlike expedition against the Iteans, a woman was taken prisoner, who, on the return of the victors, was doomed to suffer. The unfortunate victim was bound to the stake. Then a vast crowd assembled on the plains to witness the shocking scene. Pe- ta-la-sha-roo, unobserved, had stationed two fleet horses at a little distance from the spot, and was now seated among the crowd. All were now anxiously awaiting for the commencement of the frightful tragedy. The torch was being carried when suddenly our Indian hero rushed forward. In his hand there was a sharp knife. With this he cut the cord that botind the poor captive. Then he lifted her into his arms and ran to the two horses. He placed her on one horse and mounted the other. Together they made a successful dash for safety. He returned the maiden to her people. When he returned to his village, there was silence. For a great decision had been made— never again to offer human sacrifice. In 1821, this heroic Indian made a trip to Washington on Pe-ta-la-sha-roo performed a heroic deed when he rescued the captive about to b* burned ai stake. official business concerning his people. The story of his brave deed had been told to many while he was there. The young ladies of Miss White's boarding school in that city decided to give him some demonstration of the esteem in which they held him. For to these young girls it certainly was a very brave deed. So they presented him with a silver medal and one of them made the following address: "Brother: Accept this token of our esteem. Always wear it for our sake. And whenever again you have the power to save a poor woman from death or torture, think of us, and fly to her relief and rescue." The Indian's reply was as follows: "Sisters and Friends: This (meaning the medal) will give me more ease than I ever had. And I will listen more than ever I did to white men. My brothers and sisters think that I did it in ignorance. But I now know what I have done. Gifts Galore to Make for Surprise Gift Can Be Made Cheaply BY IRMA HEGEL AND VIOLET M.
