isrbiAtu r5MOKW ,¡OW:¡UI. the Indian of North America had a way of sea .» 181 up the smeke in rings cr puffs, knowing that luGh a smoke column would at once be noticed an4 understood as a signal, and not taken for the smokl of some camp fire. He n~"?e the rings by covering the littie fire with his blanket for a. moment AIM) allowing the smoke to ascend, when he instantly covered the fire again. The coluun of ascending smoke rings "hid to every Indian within thirty miles, "Lock out! There is an enemy near!" Three smokes built close together meant danger. One smoke merely meant attention. Two smoked meant, "Camp at this place." Travel the plains, and the usefulness of this long-distance telephone Will at once become apparent. Sometimes at night the settler or the traveller saw lery lines crossing the sky, shooting up and railing* perhaps taking a direction diagonal to the lines of vision. He might guess that these were the signal* of the Indians, but unless he were an old-timer he Might not be able to interpret the signals. The old- timer and the squaw-man knew that one fire-arrow, an arrow prepared by treating the head of the shaft with gunpowder and fine bark, meant the same a* the columns of smoke puffs—"An enemy is near." Two arrows, meant danger. Three arrows said linperatively, "This danger is gre'tt." Several Ikltows said, "The enemy are too many for us.* Thus the untutored ravage could telephone fairly WBH at night as well at Vt. the daytime. ■■-—fo> —. ■-
