TALES ., O F T H E Editha CHIEFS L L Watson POCAHONTAS__AND MILLY IIer real name was Mataoka, and she was the daughter of Wahunsona- cock, chief of the l'owhatan confeder- acy. She was a frol- icsome child, and her playfulness earned her a nickname from the father: Pokahan- tea (she is playful). The adventures of Capt. John Smith-- his perils among the hostile Indians, his capture, the sentence Pocahontaa to death, and his res- cue by the maiden. scarcely In her teens, are told in song and story. :But that is only the be- ghming of the narrative of Pocahon- tas. John Smith returned to Englaml In 1609. The promises of the English wcre not fulfilled, and the Indian: were kept unhappily busy by the exac- tions of the white people. There was intrigue among the In- dians also. Lured by the false stories of a treacherous chief, Pocahontas went aboard the shlp of Captain Ar- gall, In the Potomac river. She was held on hoard while the boat sailed away frmn land, and for some time sl|e was kept a prisoner and ransom was asked for her. "l'owhatan," as her father was known, had become openly hostile when his favorite daughter was thus kidmtped. He agreed to a kind of peace, however, to effect her return, but was ready for trouble--a dangerous neighbor for the whltes. But Pocahontas had not spent all her thne In English hands bewailing her fate. One of the Engllsl||nen had found favor in her eyes, and she saw tbat her affection was returned. She qccepted Chrlstlanlty, partly, perhaps, Iecause of this personable gentleman, and was baptized as the "Lady Rebec- ca." IIer savagery thus transmuted, John Rolfe no longer delayed, and in April, 1613, the two were married. Thts alliance pleased Powhatan. The old chief (he was sixty when he first met the white men) had great ambi- tions for his beloved daughter. Tbree years after the wedding, the Rolfes and several of the Powlmtan Indians set sail for England. Poca- hontas' story had preceded her, and since her father was a powerful ruler, the daughter was everywhere ac- clahned as a princess. Her visit was a trlumph; her portrait was painted; people crowded around her in admlra- tlon, and her romantic story was on every tongue. Happy over her reception, yet eager to return to her own people, Poealon- ins prepared for the trip back to America. She was aboard the ship, lying at Gravesend, when m unfor- seen calamity occurred. Snmllpox, an enemy which rarely spared Indian vic- thns, attacked her. Everything pos- sible was done In the hope of savlng the young "lwlncess," but nothing availed. She was only twenty-two when she succumbed to the scourge, leaving her husband and their son to mourn her. , , * * a , s While Pocahontas Is perhaps the most ronmntlcally famous Indlun girl in history, there have been other res- ('nes hy other Indian maidens. Thai of McKrimmon by the Seminole Milly is also well-known, and has a hapi)Ier ending. In December of 1817, McKrimmon, an American, was captured by the In- dians and taken to Mikasukl, I:Bllis Hadjo's town. Tiffs famous chief had been on the British side in the War of 181.2, and was still a foe to the Americans. He ordained that the cap- tive be burned to death like any other enemy. The American, his head shaved, was hound to a stake, and wood was plied around hhn, ready for the "burnt-offer- ing." Then began a hideous dance. The Semlnoles circled round and round their captive, uttering cries of con. tempt, and of Joy at his capture. We are not told how the American stood' the ordeal. However, our na- tional pride In our countrymen, as well as Mllly's Intercession, speak well for him, for If lie had begged for mercy. no doubt the Seminole maiden would have steeled her heart against him. Just as the fatal spark approached the wood, the young and lovely daugh. ter of Hlllls HadJo rushed to her fa- ther. At his fee;, she begged for the llfe of the captive, but the chief was stern and denied her request. Fhmlly she treatened to die with him unless lie were liberated. Not until he was convinced that his daughter meant what she said, did the chief order the eaptlve unbound. Although McKrim- men's life was safe, he was not free, however. The Seminoles held him as a prisoner until he was bougbt by some Spaniards for seven and a half gallons of ruin, and these *'owners" released hhn. Shortly after these event., the ehlef was (:aptured by Americans anti banged. HIS wife and daughters, among whom was Mllly, surren- dered. The Americans paid marked attention to the brave and beautiful young Indian girl, and McKrimmon of- fered to marry her. After a long ,.nurtshlp, In which MeKrhnmon finally ?e|'snaded her thai he had not made the offer from gratitude, but from !.ve, the. were ntarrled, and so, as the fairy-tales say, they lived bal)pily ever after.
