BY A SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT. o iD0, Ohio, Sept. 14.-Brand Whit- three chiefs according to their rank; Iron to ti and Whill back Dal' Bret dail, Indi newi anti k. mayor of Toledo, recently laid ile the many cares of a busy city k in Sioux with a band of Indians, <cap reminiscences with Colonel F. Cody, "Buffalo Bill." Mayor k and Buffalo Bill became friends I the misty past somewhere in the iwhen the mayor was plain Whitlock reporting for a Chicago paper, and Colonel Cody was an lighter. This friendship was re- it the Worlds Fair in St. Louis, 'wxe then the two had not met un- Tail, Lone Bear and Red Horse. With acri the accepted the invitation and b.-decked in full regalia of war paint and feathers, took their seats in the mayor's automobile with as much composure as the most experienced motorist. Thus the three great chiefs, arrayed in primitive costume, viewed the city of Toledo, every foot of which is replete with tradition dear to the heart of the red mien. Past the Maumee river, past run1y I storti spots they sped, to ths site of old Fort Industry. Here the Po- tawatomie Chieftain, Iron Tail, looked with an interest betokened by the glit- tiring eye and intense expression, for the '5 44-0 A~ t MAYOEA'x&., x TfOLFPOA s90c'i /,5057hino o 5,- 5 W anr neS P o C/F/PNT -- -- 0 MAYOR BRAND WHITLOCK til a short time ago when Buffalo Bill spread canvas in Toledo with his "Edu- Cational Exhibit." In the Indian village the mayor found Chief Iron Tail, the Potawatomie whose love for General Custer has won him the admiration of all who come in contact xwith the old chieftain, and later his ad- dress on the "Future of the Red Man" has brought him into wide public notice. The two have known each other for many years and Iron Tail was delighted 1olearn that his old friend was "father of th ec ity.''1 It was a great day for the mayor, he Was a young man again; he was in the far west, and around him were the In- dians in all their war paint. Perhaps soon there would be a story to send his paper by Indian or cow-boy many miles across country to the nearest telegraph office. Now it was Brand Whitlock's time to show his hospitality to the red San, for many were the times he had accepted theirs. "To see your city in a choo choo wagon would be most enjoy- able," declared Chief Iron Tail, Took Indians on Auto Trip. A land of Indians might not be con- siderel conventional guests to be re- ceived and entertained at the home of the city's chief executive, but this was What happened. Mayor Whitlock planned a trip to the battle fields, and a general View of the city. The mayor invited AND INDIANS, TOLEDO, 0. people of his tribe were actors prominent i the great drama which ended with the battle of Fallen Timbers, a few miles south of the city. On that spot where lie now gazed was held the great Indian council of war just preceding the battle, the home of his tribe being but twenty- five miles distant on the River Raisin. The attention of the braves was about equally divided between an effort to see the sights and to retain their equilibrium with dignity, which they did with sol- emnity and silence. At their request they wvere taken out to the Pope-Toledo factory to see how the wonderful "devil machines" were made, and their "ughs" expressed their delight and astonishment. Maumee River Their Mecca. Then the auto stopped in front of the mayor's own home, where the chiefs were engaged for some time by the executive in a peace conference, conducted in their own language. There was but one pie- ture true to the traditions of their tribes; the Maumee river alone remained un- changed. Upon their return to the tent- ed city, as if in acknowledgement of the one faithful and unchangeable friend of their forefathers, the entire tribe of red men, women and children dashed down the precipitous bank of the river and greeted in loving embrace the limpid waters, which in turn seemed to caress the bodies of these dark-skinned children reminiscent of a lost country. To the W WORLD Sioux itwas but a tradition; to the Fo- tawatomies it was home. The Indians say they will ever be grateful to Mayor Whitlock for the out- ing given them. This is only one of hun- dreds of testimony to Mayor Whitlock's generosity. To the people of Toledo Brand Whitlock is more than mayor, he is friend, advisor and leader. To him the wants of the people are first. He gets his pleasure in assisting the people to get fair play and lie sees to it, that all, rich and poor, have a square deal. PERSONALITIES BY ARCH1E BELL. Eily Barnato, the young French prima donna, who appeared with the Italian op- era company in New York last season heads the list of names in Joseph F. Shee- han's operatic venture. Mile. Barnato was born in Mexico, but has spent all her life in Paris. While Mile. Eily sings, her mother is engaged in a legal fight to get hold of some of the money left by her nephew, Barney Barnato, the great dia- miond king of London and South Africa. Alan Dale, the caustic critic, said to me iecently: "They call me bold. Bold is a joke. The actoreens who condescend to grant me an interview fail to realize how scared I am of them. Plenty of times I hesitate at their doors, before I can muster up courage to ring the bell and find myself face to face with the celebrated person who lodges within." Clyde Fitch says he could write better plays if it were possible for him to take an hour's dash on a limited train before sitting down to compose. Sailing through space at a lively gait, he says, arouses hils brain to action. For this reason he maks" a wild dash across Europe each summer, stopping in small towns over night aiid writing until the speed desire takes hold of him, whereupon he jumps into his automxo- bile and flies along to the next stepping- place. Olga Nethersole thinks she has discov- ered a cure-all that rivals Christian sci ence. On her recent trip to Vancouver, she vi!sited a Chinese shop, the owner of which assured her that if she would buy two of his jade bracelets and wear them constantly, she would never again be ill. It looked like a good investment. She bought them and the bracelets have not since left her arm. Having enjoyed per- fect health sines, she has now bought two more for t he other arm, hoping to cure Brother Louis' indigestion by absent treat- ment. Gus Thomas, the playwright, was walk- ing down Euclid avenue in Cleveland, fully three miles from town. A friend met him and remarked that it was a pretty hot day for suc h a long stroll. "'x' never forgot- ton the lessons I learned when a newspa- per reporter," replied Thomas. Then, after a hesitation: "I try to keep up just as good circulation in summer as in winter." Richard Mansfield's obituarists have over- looked an event in his life that was always a source of laughter when the actor re- lated it to his friends. His birth was unex- pected, when his mother was visiting in Heligoland, and as no preparations had been made for him, he wvas obliged to spend the first three weeks of his life in an improvised cradle, consisting of a pillow in a bureau-drawer. The Denver is the name selected for the new Sullivan-Considine house at Den- ver, Colo., which will be opened Oct. 15.
