To ail the readers of the 
Eyanpana. 

I will tell you now the 
Assiniboin tribe are getting 
aiong; it seems as if noboay ever 
mentions us 111 tne Eyanpaha. 
The majority of trie Assimbo.ns 
are baptized, m tne Roman Oa- 
tnolic Cliurcn, but as tiiey don't 
unaerstand tne rules and laws of 
the Cnurcn. Most of tnein don't 
go to ciiurcn on Sunday. Rev. 
P. P. bialm built tne. St. Prancis 
church at Frazer and made me 
bis cateciiist of tne place; and I 
myself do'nt Know mucn about 
tne Cnurcn, but I try my very 
best to instruct and teach the 
people. Most of the educated 
people can't read in Indian and 
those wno can read it don't un- 
derstand the meaning of some 
words, as the Assiniboins have 
different words. 

1 11 try to get some of the school 
boys and girls to subscribe for 
the Eyanpaha, and may be, they 
will learn to read India) 1 well in 
the future, and besides you'll 
have more subscribers. I take 
the paper now two years, and I 
must renew my subscription 
again. Father Sialm wants us to 
start a St. Joseph's society here, 
but as there are few old Indians 
that come to this church I went 
to Oswego and joined there. 

I hope all you St. Joseph's 
will pray to the Lord our God 
for us Assiniboins that all will 
live a good Christian life in the 
near future. 

I am. Yours Truly 

Arthur four-stars.

NEWS PROM CHEYENNE 
RIVER RESERVATION. S. D. 



White Horse. — Last month a 
log building 15 by 30 was started. 
All the logs needed were hauled, 
and nearly all of them were put 
up. Some Chippewas of Turtle 
Mountain helped to built it. 
That house will be used for both 
Mass and meeting. 

Cherry Creek. -Feb. 19, St. 
Joseph's society decided to build 
a new meeting house: it also de- 
cided, that each member should 
donate one log and bring it. 

Fintan Curley had a son born 
to him the 26th of Dec. As that 
day is St. Stephen's he called 
him Stephen. Thus Stephen 
Curley can celebrate his birthday 
and his name's day together; he 
was baptized Feb. 21. 

The same day Charles Medi- 
cine-boy, aged about 35 years, 
stood before the altar and said: 
"The whole teaching of the Ca- 
tholic church is the teaching of 
Christ. I believe that and that 
is why I want to become a Ca- 
tholic." 

Some of those who received 
holy communion Feb. 21. receiv- 
ed it again the next day. 

There are 8 Catholic children 
at this day school. All of thejn 
are full bloods. They have Sun- 
day school every Sunday. John- 
did-not go-home teaches them. 

Cheyenne Agency. — At the 
boarding school there are 61 Ca- 
tholic children. They get in- 
structed twice every Sunday 
when I am home: fornoon in 
church and afternoon at the 
school. On the other Sundays, 
once, forenoon, in church; it is 
about half a mile from the 
school. They have examination 
in average once a month. 

Feb. 28. 
John Vogel. 

Government Boarding School, 

CHEYENNE AGENCY. S. D: 
Feb. 5, 1911. 

To all Catholic school boys of 
the other Reservations of South 
and North Dakota. 
Friends. 

All the boys and girls could 
go home Dec. 21. 1910. That is 
why we had Christmas here at 
this church already Sunday Dec. 
18. 

In church there was a box, 
some straw in it, a wooden figure 
was laying on that straw. 

The priest told us, the box re- 
presented the manger, the Baby 
Jesus was layed in, and the figure 
represented the Baby Jesus. 

The priest also told us, Jesus 



had come down from heaven to 
show us what to do, and so every 
good boy and girl tries to imitate 
Jesus. The priest told us, that 
the angels were singing when 
Jesus was born, now we boys 
and girls could take the places 
of the angels and sing too. 

We did so. We sang for God. 
for Jesus and also for Jesus' 
mother. 

Each boy and each girl got a 
little present. We did not get 
the presents in the name of San- 
ta Claus, but in the name of 
Christ Child. 

Friends, please tell us some 
news. Truly Yours
