FIGHTS WITH INDIANS. Early in 1877 a pnrty of seven men left Yankton for tlia Black hills, having In charge a complotete sawmill outfit. Tha mill belonged to Capt. Jack Branch, and his party was composed of Col. John Lawrence, Bud Taylor, Mayor Evans, Nat Pnsho, H. C. Ash nnd Al "Wood. The party crossed the Missouri river at Yank- i ton and took a northTrest route through Cedar and Knox counties. Neb., Intending to cross the Niobrara river a little southeast of the hilla. It, was well known that the Indians were ngly and determined to keep the white man out of their favorite hunting frroundg. Capt. Branch's party was well armed, and had made all necessary preparations to flght their way through all opposition. No Indians wera HCt-n \ihtil the Niobrara river was reached. Taylor and Wood wera ordered to go up the river and hunt for a crossing and return In time for an early dinner. Col. Lawrence, an old Indian fighter, cautioned the boys about Indian trickery and ambuBh. Half a mile up the river on the opposite side was observed a bunch of willows big enough to conceal several Indians and their horses. Taylor and wood watched the willows cautiously as they advanced. When nearly opposite the willow patch they both dropped to the ground, as the unpleasant "zip" ofbulleta told that there was trouble ahead. Lying flat on the -ground, they were fairly protected, and soon saw the smoke of the guns curling out of the willows. They opened a rapid Ore and plumped the bullets Into the brush In a manner altogether too hot for tho redskins. In the course of half aa hour two mounted Indians and one oil foot were discovered making good time over a hill beyond the willows, which hud concealed their escape till they were out of range. A ford was found near by and the boys returned to camp to report. Tlielr comrades were nil ready to move, having heard their guns. Dinner over and the oxen were soon moving for the ford. The passage over the river was made in f a M tr ;. n r A n t l r crossin S. Col. Lawrence said: "Well, boys, we're In for It now Let every mnn keep his eyes wide open. By making good time we can camp on some of the numerous branches of the south fork of the Cheyenne river." Taylor and Wood made a visit to the willow patch. They found one dead horse and evidence that one of the Indians hud been wounded. The oxen were moved as rapidly as possible, and by sundown a good camp was found, as expected. -No signs .of Indians, but CoL Lawrence-was satis- fled that their every move was being watched. This gallant little pnrty was not dlstnrhfeil during the night, except by the howling of wolves and coyotes. No trouble was looked for until they got Into the bad lands, somc,ten mllea iihead It was necessary to make a long march to get through the bad lands before- night again set in. An early start was made and everybody was fully alive to the situation. The bad lands were reached before noon. "What a sight It was! The entire country had been burned up at some remote period, leaving hero and there vast piles or shale and burned clay resembling everything within the range of imagination, from the ruins of ancient castles to the majestic pillars and domes of the Turkish capital. Desolation iu Its moat forbidding aspect surrounded the modern Implement of clviliza* tion and Its escort as they hurried through this hell of undent times. Gen. Sully the part of t!>r> wh!t."q AM.-.I;-:.,,1;i(.l , continued all day. TrnnMo was piprvtod rlnrinc; the night, and it. rarno. The night was very daric nnd fnvornhle for both p.-irtici to coiiornl their movements. Tho ox»n were hitched to the wrurons nnd hnulpd bnrk on the trail some forty roils, so that the Indians coul j not locate the cnmp before morning. Lawrence, Ash and Presho went bnck to the first location to keep guard. No Indians were seen during the night, but a very suspicious clump of brush hmj grOTvn up during the night not far from the party ID Oharge of tho mill. Two Indians had cut a quantity of brush and crawled up close to Jbo trail so as to get in tho rear of the mill camp as first located. The brush looked natural enough stuck In the ground, but the practiced eye of Lawrence detected the fraud, ami he opened fire at once to warn the camp nnd expose the Indiana, who had no cimuco to run and were twtwe«n two flres. It took but a few minutes to settle their hash. Lawrenco fell back to cnmp and prepared for a hard flght, which was bitter on. both sides. !< am The In ™ te were fighting aa men will flght to save their lives. There was no coter on the left of the trail by which the Indians could approach within range, which alone saved the determined little party from being wiped out. The Indians had evidently been re-enforced. For nearly two hours they kept up a steady flre from all points within rantfs on the right of the trail The boiler proved to be the_salvation of Capt. Branch and his men. The wagon* were riddled. Evans, Ash and Taylor received slight flesh wounds, not severe enough to render them unfit for duty Three Indians were hit, bnt whether fatally or not It was Impossible to find out. After supper a council of war was held. It was possible to hold out tvrenty- four hours longer, but their condition or means of defense would not be Improved; hence it waa decided to abandon tho mill and oxen, and push through the gap before daylight and procure re-enforcements at Ouster City and return for tho mill This programme was carried ont, and successfully. The next afternoon Capt. Branch ard his party arrived at Ouster, where th-y received a hearty welcome. Volunteers were plenty and willing. Thirty-seven determined men, with horses to haul the mill, returned to the scene of the flght Instead of going to the mill direct they flanked the position held by the Indians during tho flght, and, to their satisfaction, discovered about fifteen Indians on watch for those who might return to the mill.- Six of these redskins were killed at the first flre and the others were wounded but they managed to' reach their ponies and make good their escape. The mill was hauled into the mining camp, where it did good service In furnishing the miners with lumber. The oxen had been driven, off, and were never recovered Ash,-Evans and Taylor soon recovered from their wounds. Three of the orlgl- party are still In the Hills.

He called it "hell with the flres out." This description Is complete. At noon a halt was made to feed the stock and rest. A good watch was kept, ,_ but no Indians seen. This troubled Col. Lawrence, as it indicated serious trouble when it did come. Tho march was resumed and the bad lands left and hour behind at sundown. Camp was formed at the foot of tho hills of the range that leads .through Buffalo gap, the point by which the party hoped to get in to the hills. The party went into camp as usual, but after darkness had settled on the camp the entire party moved back some sixty rods The precaution was timely. Lawrence, Ash and Presho returned to their first camp ground and took post for the night. Rolled up in their blankets they laid down on the ground to awuit events, nor did they hnvo long to wait, for the practiced eye of Lawrence detected numerous objects crawling' toward their location. These objects proved to«be hostile Sioux hunting for the camp as first located. The Indians got on their feet, nnd seemed puzzled by the way they acted.- They could not account for the removal of the camp. Col. Lawrence decided to surprise them still more. He told Ash and Presho to select two of the most prominent marks to the left, while he would look after the right The forms or figures of the Indians were not very distinct, still ho risked little in the attempt, as the redskins conjd not return tho flre. Lawrence and his companions flred at the signal. Two unearthly yells followed, and all was still again, hut the Indians had vanished In the darkness. Lawrence and his -comrades held their positions until daylight, when they discovered two dead Indians, as they supposed, but a closer Inspection found one alive. CoL Lawrence, who Is masWrof the Sioux language, asked the then nearly dead Indian who they were Ho was barely able to state that he was Yellow Hair, of Two Kettle band, and the dead savage was Jumping Thunder. of the Corn Planting band, Spotted Tail's agency. Capt. Branch and party joined the Lawrence party justs as the Indian finished. Jumping Thunder was shot through the left breast and Yellow Htir * through the stomach. Ash scalped tbe dead Indian and the other one was left to his fate. It was determined to pet through Buffalo gap before sundown. Capt. Branch and his men knew that there was work ahead and realized their danger. Toward the middle of the afternoon a large number of. Indiana were discovered on the bluff near which the trail passed., Fortunately for the mlllmen there was timber on only one side of the trail where Indians could conceal themselves. The boiler of the irilll would ruruiHh aaiple protection on cine side at least. It was determined to posh on and test the temper of the redskinsTlf It was flght, why let It come, as come I It must sooner or later. An advance waa ordered, the men keeping the boiler between them and the timbered bluffs. When within long range of the bluff, where the Indians had been setn, It wju determined to holt aad await the attack. The oxen were driven down a ravine pn the left out of rifle range on the right The Indiana observed the cliallpnge aid •ce«{>te.:l. A duel at long range continued until dark. Capt Branch and his men determined to pass the point where the Indians Ua<i teen Bean during the nlglit and make Buffalo gap before tnorniua.

The ItHlJana bad not •addtwtod thin mo*« »sxi w«j» *e«u hot oa tha tr»U b/»imrt»a, The Gift of Healing. Tho gift of healing scrofula and similar diseases, claimed for centuries by our kings, lasted, as we know, to the nge of Queen Anno, and the service used on tbe occasion can bo read in the Common Prayer Book printed in her reign. That very sacred king, Charles II—if we may believe an eye witness, one of his own surgeons—performed many hundreds of cures, and is said to have touched In twenty-one years upward of 93,000 sufferers. "God give you better health and more sense," was the benediction of Willlam III over the only person ho could be, persuaded to touch. The writer observes that though the belief In the virtue of the royal touch was a silly superstition, It waa not, as Macanlay terms it, au Imposture, since patients were often cured by the impression produced on the nervous system, the excitement caused by the royal touch in cases of scrofula causing a freer flow of blood to the part affected. The remedies given by a physician in former days appeared to be often founded on conjecture, and were sometimes worse than the disease. Cardan, a man of great genius, and ps much renowned for mathematics as for medical skill, wrote a prescription composed of pearls, gems and the bone of a unicorn, and when troubled with sleeplessness ho relates that he applied bear's grease to seventeen places on" the body. Cardan, who, by tho way was summoned in the last illness of Kdward VI, was very superstitious. His son had been executed for poisoning his wife, and tbe father, in a dream, heard a voice telling him to put into his mouth the emerald he wore round his neck, and that would enable him to. forgot hia son. He did so he gays, with such good' results that he was always oppressed when he could not have the stone between his lips —The Spectator. , .

An eye witness says, the occupants were it mau and two boys, the man being so drunk as to have no control of the team, hence the runaway.
