An Indian Dude.
(After quoting various testimonies Mr.
‘Donaldson makes the following summa-
ry: “The real reservation Indian is filthy
{in person and habits. He eats uncooked
| food and vermin, changes. his clothes
when they dro, off from decay, is of-
| fensive in odor and thriftless in all things.
! He is the constant and agrecable ¢om-
panion of every kind of vermin. On the
bank of a river stood an Indian in the
land of the Piutes, some years ago, in
ed in an abandoned society coat, but-
toned backward, a pair of eyeglasses
and a high white hat with a crape band.
He was an Indian dude, the euvy of his
‘tribe. That might he was murdered by
a fellow Indian and thrown into the
river, and the next day his Fmarderet ap-
peared in the dress suit.”
