Pash-she-pah-how--or the stabber, first chief of the Sauks. His name tells his character. He is revengeful. The dark locks that hang on either side of his neck, indicate that his vengeance is not appeased. He once made a trip of several hundred miles to kill the United States agent at Prairie du Chein--but was interfered with, and baulked in his purpose, by Tai-mah, or the bear whose screams make the rocks tremble% His revenge was not satisfied when he was at Washington, in 1824, as his looks indicated. There is in him a physical peculiarity, which it will not do to explain here. He is a strong powerful man, and unusually fat for an Indian. [P. 9.]
Catalogue of One Hundred and Fifteen Indian Portraits, representing eighteen different tribes, accompanied by a few brief remarks on the character, &c. of most of them. Price 12 1/2 cents.
