To cherish undefiled.

To the glory of the day
Down came the Heavenly Garner
And took our child away.

C. L. Starr,  St. Lawrence, So. Dak.
Washington, March 17 --- Hollow Horn Bear, big chief of the Sioux Indians at Dallas, on the Rosebud, South Dakota reservation, and probably most famous of all Sioux chieftains, died here Saturday of pneumonia.  For 64 years the big chief had defied death on the warpath, the plains, the mountains and the forest, but the inclemency of March weather in Washington, where he came to attend President Wilson's inauguration, was too much for the old warrior.  When he was stricken last Wednesday the young chiefs of his party consented to take him to the pale face medicine men at a hospital, where it was seen there was no hope.
Accepts Christian Faith.
Hollow Horn lingered in a semi- conscious condition until Saturday when, just about the time the beautiful smoke was curling up through the tree tops of his reservation, the Great Spirit called him to the happy hunting grounds.  Born a pagan, Hollow Horn died a devout Christian.

The Rev. William H. Ketchem, director of the bureau of Catholic missions, gave him the last rites.  His body will be laid to rest with those of his ancestors out west.

Rapid City, S.D. March 17. -- Mrs. R. B. Allison, whose family connections are of the best, has been pursuing a system of begging which has netted her about $500 during the last three months.

Her method was to disguise herself as much as possible and then solicit funds for a person reported ill, generally selecting the name of some one mentioned in the newspapers.  She also worked the poor family story on cold days and in warm weather solicited funds for the burial of a fixtiitious baby belonging to an imaginary poor family.  When arrested Mrs. Allison was intoxicated and admitted having obtained the money as charged.  She was bound over to the circuit court.
