   The Indian Chiefs.

  The chiefs from the Cheyenne and Arapahoe Agency, presented a fine appearance as they sat upon the rostrum last Wednesday evening.  They listened with interest to the band and choir and to Mr. Standing's address of welcome.  When Major Pratt spoke of their presence with us and his pleasure at having them here, he said they were men he knew 31 years ago at a time when some of the tribes were not friendly, and it was interesting if not dangerous to be among them.  Mr. Standing referred to his pioneer life down in the section of the country from whence they had come.  He said he knew Left Hand the best.  Robert Burns, interpreted for the Cheyennes and Cleaver Warden for the Arapahoes.  Both were early pupils of Carlisle.  When it came time for the chiefs to speak, Major introduced Left Hand first.  He said he was one of the men he had met on the Washita 31 years ago.  The Major had met Mr. Standing down in that country also, and it was through his work of preparation that we got 56 of the children of the two tribes that these chiefs represented, to enter Carlisle.  Left Hand sent three of his own boys.
  Left Hand, Arapahoe, said in part, Cleaver Warden, interpreter:
  My friends, I am glad to see you all gathered in this room.  I consider myself as deaf and dumb, but there is a light before me and all the Indians in the United States.  Since I came here and saw you I have been encouraged, and I want to impress upon you that you are to carry heavy responsibilities in the future.  I shall have  a great deal to tell my people when I go home.
  Wolfe Robe, Cheyenne, Robert Burns, interpreter, said: "I am glad to see you all and I am very glad to see that you are learning something.  Improve your time while you are here, so you will be able to manage affairs when you go out from this school.  I have been here before and I am glad to be here now."  Wolfe Robe spoke eloquently in his own language, which sounded very strange to the ears of most of his audience.
  The Major in introducing Buffalo Meat, Cheyenne, said that he had had the unpleasant duty, years ago as an officer of the army, to put chains upon this man, before taking him to Florida as a prisoner of war.  The taking of 74 of the warriors of the southwestern plains in 1875, to Florida proved to be the greatest moving cause toward the establishing of Carlisle.  Although the Major was obliged to treat Buffalo Meat so harshly they had always been friends, and when the time came to send children to Carlisle, Buffalo Meat was ready.
  Buffalo Meat said in part:
  "These are the representative men of my tribe.  The only advice I have to give to the pupils before me is to improve.  We are blind and cannot hear from ourselves.  I am a member of the church, and I pray for the students of the Carlisle school.  I have seen other schools, and I picked out this, for I think this is the best."  Then Buffalo Meat bowed his head in prayer, and in his own language which was not interpreted, sent up a petition that was impressive and powerful.  Although we could not understand a word he uttered the power of the Spirit was manifest and the very breath of his audience could be heard in the stillness of the moment.  Buffalo Meat is the first Christian Chief, uneducated, who ever prayed orally before the Carlisle school.
  Then Robert Burns, Jesse Bent and Cleaver Warden, ex-students who were the interpreters for the visitors, spoke earnestly showing that they too, considered it a privilege to say a few words to the school.  At the close, the audience sang America, and the students marched out as the band played.
