Some six or seven years ago Mr. Frank Gushing,of the Smithsonian Institution, as- tpnished the world by his account of tho pemi-oivili/.ed Zuni Indians, who, until his visit to them, had successfully maintained their exchisiveneBs. Ho only succeeded iu se- ourinff an entry into one of their villages through ' tho kindheartedness of the Zunis. 'When he was cornmiBfliogod to investigate the character and'habits of these superior people ho was a very flick man, was being treated, iu fact, for consumption. Tho mission was civcu him in tho iiope that residence in the warm South would restore him to strength and preserve a valuable officer to tho Government. During his journey his illness crow neon him, and when ho reached a Zuni village he was stretched in exhaustion upon a litter which was carried by hia friends. .They repre Bontod to the Zunis thatacreat American chief had come to them imploring to be cured. Ou this the Indians received him, nursed him. assiduously and finally made a well man of him. Eventually he' was received into tho tribe, learned their language, religion and ueienco of medicine. , One curious thine he discovered was that the principal cause of his cure waR a liquor whose composition is unknown to the Zuuis. Thoy hold it in great esteem and twice every year they nend an embasiy to the Kickapoo Indians, who manufacture it, and purchase a supply of it. Several times the Zuuis attempted to purchase tho secret of its composition, but always without success, Onco they attempted to force the coveted knowledge from tho Kickapoos and made war upon them for that purpose, but were roimlsed. Fortunately a white man was more successful With the Kickapoon. This tribe originally dwelt in Illinois. Thence the Government moved them to Kansas and later on to the Indian Territory, where they inhabit the old Sacs DTOAffEMtt. u.u «««. cough is soon followed by a profuse watery es pectoration and the sneezing by a profuse watery discharge from the nose.
