Dog check, The children adorn themselves with every variety of jewelry that can be obtained, and frequently make their own earrings, bracelets, and breastplates, On one we could not help noticing were large key checks, as we at first thought, but examination proved it to be some city, as the inscription read “No. 74, Dog Tax Paid,” Taking a thorough look at the owner of the metal, we concluded she was properly labeled, 403

Dog, He owns a full bloodhound, which we endeavored to get for the Bolton S. P. U., but the, could not be bought, 415

Dog-eaters, The Kaws are rather a fine looking set of Indians, The full bloods wear their blankets and scalp lock, and do much painting, They wear huge bunches of rings in their ears and pride themselves in gaudy feathers, while the squaws like bright colors, They are called, by the Osages, just because they have an appetite for dog meat, either rare or well done, 118

Dog instinct prevailed, Spotted Horse was a Pawnee Indian, whose custom it was to make periodical visits to Caldwell with one or more of his squaws, bartering their persons to the lusts of two-legged white animals in whom the, prevailed, 221

Dogs, At night we all took in the Winnebago dance, The Osages just recently bought it of the Winnebago’s; they gave them nine ponies for it, yet to save my life I can’t tell any difference unless at the Winnebago dance the, barked a little louder, 120

Dogs, Horses and, were all the meat we had, 266

Dogs, Indian, and wolves do not fight, but play together on the plains, 102

Dogs, I tell you, gentlemen, you can hear the wolves now if you listen, but you are used to it and don’t mind them, nor did I until that time; but when my fire was gone, they’d get around that dug-out at nights, and howl like, over their dead master, It wasn’t cheerful at the start and didn’t grow more comfortable as the days turned into weeks, 378

Dogs, John Stink was always getting drunk, One time they thought he was dead, At that time when they buried someone, they would sit that person up, stack rocks around him (or her) until the body was covered; and then place a flag on a pole stick in the pile of rocks, This procedure was carried out with John Stink, Luckily for John Stink, he always had a pack of, After he sobered up on this occasion, one of the dogs dug him out, He wanted nothing to do with people after that! 421

Dogs, Shortly the drum began to beat just a little, then some old brave gave a whoop, then hit the drum, then another whoop, and then the old drum had to take it, Then the choir would go after a lingo as “Hi-ko, hi-ko,” The noise began to stir up the, and all the dogs in the band were brought in to bark for the dance, Up would jump some young brave and hop to the center, stoop over them backwards, then he would give one of those terrible whoops and say “hi-ko” and then the whole gang would begin to come in, and then such motions and whoops until about 30 braves were dancing and not less than 150 dogs barking, On went the drum, on sang that choir, on went the dance, and on went the whoop, and on barked the dogs, and away out over the prairie went the echo, 119-120

Dog’s tail, Our only regret is that they do not make the mistake the Dutchman did when he cut off the, and cut their fool heads off, 161

Dogs, The Chetopa Herald says the agent of the Ponca Indians, now located near Baxter Springs, has decided to remove them to a part of the Arapaho and Cheyenne reservation, south of Arkansas City, This will cause a still greater demand for dead, 145

Dogs, Then was enacted a scene such as, perhaps, was never before witnessed, nor has it since, in all probability; all the, in the command—and there was every breed and size, for the average United States soldier loves a dog—joined in the pandemonium that followed the chase for the bewildered birds, 420

Dogs, this will cause a still greater demand for dead, 145

Dogs, two or three, would be carrying their dinner from the other end, 119

Dogs, Why, Mr. Editor, those who came in here yesterday to beg to be received were a lot of poor, half-starved creatures, their ponies were also starving, for the reason that since Gen. Custer took the field they have not had time to graze their ponies nor to kill meat for themselves, Their ponies are dying by the hundreds, and they are living on their, They have been able to make but few robes; consequently, they are poorly clad, They have learned that the way of the transgressor is hard, 247

Dog, To read of the old time Indian, is exciting, but here you come in direct contact with them, and too direct, if you are not careful, They are a vicious looking lot of canine specie, I think the tribe owns about 600, We visited their camps, while they were cooking and drying their meat, Perhaps while a squaw was working at one end of a piece of meat, two or three dogs would be carrying their dinner from the other end, 119

Dogwoods, We then started west, ran through a mile of timber with a dense undergrowth of, grapevines, and mosquitos, and came within a few feet of a line mound, 16

Dolls, Henry, and brother, While there we visited the school under charge of, and were astonished at the rapid progress made among the Indian children, They repeated the multiplication table from two times one are two, to twelve times twelve are 144, with rapidity, and read, spelled, and sang readily, 403

Dolls, Mr., is an Englishman by birth and has the reputation of being one of the best Indian educators in the Territory, In his school thirteen different tribes are represented, as follows: Wichita, Caddos, Utes, Comanches, Creeks, Kechis, To-wak-o-nies, Delawares, Wacos, Cherokees, Seminoles, Shawnees, and Chickasaws, All learn fast, considering their circumstances and prejudices, As we entered the school, the teacher was endeavoring to convince the younger ones that the earth was round, which seemed to be received as a preposterous idea, when they could look out the window and see it was flat, There were eighty-three pupils in the room, and the roll showed a list of more than one hundred, but as they are permitted to go to their camps on Sunday, many had not yet come in, 403

Donaldson, Gen. Custer’s final official report to Gen. Terry recapitulates his former statements, and takes strong ground in favor of the immediate opening of the Black Hills for military reasons, endorses the part of gold discoveries, and suggests further operations next season, Nevertheless, professors Winchell and, asserted that Custer does not know of his own knowledge that any color of gold was found in the Black Hills, 342-343

Doolittle, The following is the letter received from Hunt and, 226

Dorn, A. J., Fr. Schoenmakers’ statement in a letter August 28, 1856, to, Indian Agent, was more than a little prophetic, “Our Osages are well aware that their former mode of living is fast closing upon them, Ten years ago they numbered 5,000 souls; at present they hardly exceed 3,500,” 52

Dorn, Andrew J., With the approach of the Civil War, the Indian Agent, sympathized and sided with the south, Without waiting for the appointment of his successor in office, he began to persuade his Osage Indian wards, whom he had treated fairly, to take up the southern cause, A loyal supporter of the North, Fr. Schoenmakers did, by his influence, succeed in keeping most of his Osage students in allegiance to the Union, Dorn spent most of his time with the Indian bands on the Verdigris, Chief Black Dog and Second Chief, Wa-po-pek-eh, were most susceptible to his influence and soon joined in spreading his propaganda, Dorn later became a Quartermaster at Bonham, Texas, in the rebel service, 53

Dougan, Doc., A gentleman writing from Salt Lake, asks the editor of the Indian Herald, published at Osage Agency, whether the paper is edited by half- or full-blood Indians, That’s tough on, 98

Dougan & Co., W. McKay, I wish to ask a few questions to be answered in the Herald, 98

Dougan, Dr., Col. Hiatt and, of Osage Agency, have just returned from the plains, where they have been looking after the Osages, 80

Dougan, Dr., the Agency physician, was summoned, and found an oblique fracture of the shaft of the femur bones of the right thigh, and a compound fracture of the upper third of the humerus bone of the left arm, In the absence of other physicians or surgeons, the doctor called in N. P. Delarue and R. W. Hopkins as assistants, and dressed the wounds, and at this writing the boy is doing well, though his physician thinks the bone of the arm was so badly crushed, and so near the neck, that it cannot be kept straight, The Government has no hospital accommodations at this place, consequently, the practice of medicine and surgery, in many instances, must be attended with more or less dissatisfaction both to patient and practitioner, 94

Dougan, Dr., well known by our citizens as the former physician for the Osages and later for the Pawnees, 112

Dougan, Dr. W. McKay, I found so much work awaiting me here, that it has been impossible to fulfill my promise sooner, 109

Dougan, Dr. W. McKay, We had a pleasant call this morning from, For eight years he has had charge of the medical department at Osage and Pawnee Indian Agencies, Indian Territory, during which time he founded the Indian Herald, This was the first newspaper ever published among the Osages, and the largest paper ever published in the Indian Territory, He now visits Salt Lake as a correspondent for the Kansas City, Mo., Times, and was yesterday shown through the Temple Block by Bishop Kelser and others, and we hope to see in the Times what we expect of few Gentile papers—the truth about “Mormonism,” The above is clipped from the Deseret News, the Mormon church organ at Salt Lake, A letter from Dr. Dougan will be found in the Times this morning, We have no doubt of his truthfulness in writing about Mormonism, while associating with the saints in Zion, and we also think he will quit the New Jerusalem without tasting the sweets of polygamy, The whole heart of one true woman is enough for Dr. Dougan, K. C. Times, Wonder if the Times knows what it is talking about? We are rather afraid the Doctor’s bump of amativeness would prove too much for him in a case of emergency, you see Osage and Pawnee agencies are not so far removed from Arkansas City as from Kansas City or Salt Lake City, It is barely possible for some people to crave two or three hearts of true women, 112-113

Douglass, About the same time one Quimby, a leading merchant in, Mike Dray, his partner, Dr. Morris and his Son, were arrested, tried, and held to bail for stealing horses, While being guarded that they might procure the bail, Quimby and his wife made strong threats of raising their clan and taking vengeance upon the citizens, who were staking their all on “cleaning out” the thieves, On Thursday night, 2nd inst., some seventy men came to relieve the guard, and end the practices of these wretched men, They were hung a mile and a half south of Douglass, This makes eight of the band that have been put out of the way lately, and I am assured by the best of citizens, that the battle being joined, never will they hold up, nor cry enough till it is decided whether thieves or honest men are to rule the valley, and upon this frontier, 62

Douglass, Butler County is larger than the State of Rhode Island: too large for convenience or comfort, There is much talk about carving a new county out of it and Cowley; in which case, either, or Augusta would probably be the county seat, 22
