It Was a Contest for a Ilrlilo, and tli Scene of the Incident Is Tmkl in Uootie County. C. L. Lucas of Boonu is writing Horn sketches of early days for tho Doino crat. He lei IB nn Indian Htory in th last issue, that is Interesting merely ti a story. Tho pioneer in Boono county was a trapper named I3nrton. In tin spring of 1844 he returned to Fort Do Moines to take a job as goverrimen teamster. On the way down ho cainput near a village of MuHqunkio and I'otta wattamie Indians. There Hcornor] lo ho great excitement in tho village, the nature of which was explained to therr by an interpreter. From this it ap peared that a young warrior of the fitu and Pox Indians named Quick Horsi had been in tho habit of visiting thnsf tribes at their village on tho " ncutra ground." which watt no uncommon thing among the neighboring tribes During these visits Quick Morse /el desperately in love with adusky maiden of tho Pottawattnmie tribe namec Singing Bird. This maiden had suitor in her own tribe named Fighting Bear, who waa equally smitten with hoi charms. She bestowed her affections upon him when Quick Horsa was absent, but when he was present Fighting Bear had to take a back seat. This so grievously offended him that a great commotion was the result. The father of the maiden was up- pealed lo and he called the wise men of the tribe together and a council waa held to decide what should be done. After three hours' deliberation this solemn and dignified council decided that the two young rivals shot/Id go out on \ two days' hunt, and whichever Drought in the mo«t game at the end of that time ahould be entitled to the hand of the duaky maiden. To this conclusion of tho wiae men the Sac and Fox warrior entered a solemn protest, FT a- said the task they had assigned him was one he could not do without violat- ,ng a treaty his tribe had pledged .hemselvea to obey. In a treaty wf tb the United States the Sac and Fox In- Jiana had bound them selves never to mnt on the "neutral ground," He begged the wise men to reconsider their decision and assign him aorne- ,hing elae to do that he might honorably engage in, and at the same time called their attention to the fact that their decision aeerned to have been with the intention of getting hirn- nto trouble with the great father at Washington, Thi* they gravely denied,, called him: a wise man and a a tar,eamai», and assured him- that they would devise aome other plan to decide he matter, and so' retired: to their wigwam council chamber for that purpose, Mr, Bartora and: his companion had' >y this time become so 1 much interested n this novel' proceeding, that they decided; to remain in camp until the next lay and see what the outcome of this momentous affair would be. The wise men were in council until tnidniig-ht fee- ore they reached a cond'uaion.
