Indian Chief 'Two Eagles' was asked by a white government official, 'You have observed the white man for 90 years. You've seen his wars and his technological advances. You've seen his progress, and the damage he's done.' The Chief nodded in agreement. The official continued,Indian Chief Two Eagles 'Considering all these events, in your opinion, where did the white man go wrong?' The Chief stared at the government official for over a minute and then calmly replied. 'When white man find land, Indians running it, no taxes, no debt, plenty buffalo, plenty beaver, clean water. Women did all the work, Medicine man free. Indian man spend all day hunting and fishing; all night having sex.' Then the chief leaned back and smiled. 'Only white man dumb enough to think he could improve system like that.'

Rumor says that I.W. Hodge of Bartlett, will soon move his family back to his old home.

Mrs. Catherine Andrews Hodge, wife of James H. Hodge, was born in Chatham, and died at her home here, the 15th of February.  Mrs. Hodge had a shock two weeks before her death from which she never rallied.  She was a great suffer to the end.  The funeral was held the 17th, Rev. Andrews of Intervale, officiating; also the Intervale Choir was in attendance.  Several beautiful wreaths of flowers were furnished by relatives.  Mrs. Hodge was a very quiet woman, never going around much.  She will be much missed in the neighborhood.  She leaves a husband and two children, Mrs. Fred E. Littlefield of this place, and John W. Hodge of Bartlett.  We extend sympathy to the relatives.
