Many inquiries h*va bean made about Ghaska, the Indian, and hU bride, Oor» Belle Fellows, the Washington girl who threw h/rself away npon the redtkln. The manager of the Dime Museum says they see back on their farm m Swift Bird's oamp. "We had to buy the farm and then make them a present of it. But they didn't stook it an they Intended wlfch. the salary they got. We paid them £ICQ tk week and expenses, and as they were engaged for ten weeks, they got a tidy little Bum. After the second week she bought herself some diamond earrings and paid £120 for them. This oontented-the bride for a while, bnt m Ohloapo she wanted aomedreaseß, and they werethe beat she oonld bay. My partner, Ed Kohl, told me she bought an outfit, Including a seal' skin eacque, although it was midsummer, that cost her £2^o. Then Mrs Olmka began te nt out Suramy— that 1b what she always called her tall ladla,n husband, She went to a swell tailor and had three suits made for him, one of whioh is a fall dross Then she bought him a gold watoh and chain— the watoh was a horietimer. Even then che was not satisfied, •nd she further adorned her redskin with a huge diamond ring and stud. Then the heart of Oora seemed happy, but her purse waa empty. I don't believe they had 600 bovh when they got baok home. What m the world they will do with all their diamonds and finery on tb« reservation is more than 1 00 n Imaglnt."
