Chon-man-i-coss--An Otta; Half-Chief and husband of Eagle of Delight. This was a lively, animated fellow, his wife was young and handsome, and attracted the attention of the citizens of Washington, who made her many presents, in jewellery and other things, until her husband considered her rich enough to make a prize of, and very deliberately began the work of appropriating a large portion of her beads and trinkets to himself. It is said that on arriving at, or near St. Louis, his brother and himself fell out, whereupon his brother bit off his nose, which being a somewhat irritating operation, he levelled his rifle and revenged the insult, by killing his brother. He was very proud of his head-dress, horns and all. [P. 8.]
