La Crosse Independent Republican (Newspaper) - November 1, 1854, La Crosse, Wisconsin THE REPUBLICAN follows in in jroods. for Cblppewa Treaty. At tliis treaty mtulo at Lake Stipe nor, at A matter of mnuh interest t ttw people of Minnesota, wo hare en dmvoretl to obtain correct inforniatto la regaril to it, and urc ruucli to Oakes, RusatH und bcun lien, for the following account The lino of ptirclmxe cotnnicnccs n the head waters of Simkc river, run nlng tticnce in' n straight line to the month of the Savnnna rivur where i empties into the St. Louis river, thence the St. Louis to the mouth of the Swan river thence up snicl river to iU head; thence in u straight line to the Macon or Sturgeon Luke thctiuc ia Mmiglit northerly line to the botm darjr line of the British near Kniny Luke. All the land of this line ownvl the Luke Supe- rior and Brisford In'.lians comprising an area of country, in extent tc the state of Ohio, nnd including nl the mineral lands upon our northern frontier, hn.s been ceded liy these In dinn.i to the United States, Tho Mississippi Indians refused to their land, and make the boundary line between them and the Lake Supe- rior Indians', the line of purchase. The- treaty was made by .Ajrcnts Ilcrrimen of Minnesota, and Gilbert of Michigan. The amount paid fur this valuable mineral land is money, whool purposes, for agricultu- ral improvements, -I blacksmiths, equal to each In all to be paid iinnttnlly for twenty years. In addition to this, the half-breeds nre to have in one payment.. Tlieru nre tilip to In; distributed 200 guns, 1 00 rifles, 500 beaver traps, GOO pounds powder and in ready-made clothing. is rcsfi'vcd to-be -ptiiil to tlie order of the chiefs', for the .payment of Iheir debts. Tho treaty gives each head of a family, including half-breeds, eighty acres of fowl, to located in U'iseo.v Michigan, or Minnesota. [Demo- cnit. Those who are anxious to define the western boundary of the lauds treated for, can cyme very near tin: line of tie- mnreatioa, by running a direct line on the map from the head of Snake rivet1. north to the British boundary, and thi.-nco bjr that boundary to. its point of intersection with ImUu Superior. One of the wisest provisions of the1 treaty, not mentioned by tin; Democrat in the article above- rjiiuted, is thai the Lake Chippewis agree1 lo tlaim all right and tillu to lands situated west of this treaty boundary, Atid the Mississippi C'hippewas, iu turn, do tho same in regard to the lamb cccdcd by their Lake brethren, as pro- vided in the Treaty. Tliis sejK-rate-s the- interests of tiie Imkc attd River Indians forever, and leaves the latter free to negotiate for the- sale of their lands as they ploaso and we only re- gret that that event did dot take- place at the same time tho t.ake domain was purchn.-ietl.

It seldom has failed to furnish almost in- stant relief, and a FINAL PERMANENT CURE, by being used according to direct ions to the following diseases: Rheumatism. Uterine pains, Palpitation of the Heart, Paralysis, Period- ical Headache, Painful and Swelled Joints, St. Vitus' Dance, Neuralgia of the Face, General Debililv, Diseases of the Spine, Pains, of the Chest. Deafne.-saad Blindness, Hysterics and Dyspepsia, and ALL DISEASES that are caused by a deficient amount of NERVOUS FLUID, are greatly relieved, if not permanently cured by simply wearing the chains for a lew hours each day. HE IT UNDERSTOOD.' Thai it is not claimed that it cures all dis- eases, but only tiio-e for which it is recom- mended and moreover, we boldly claim ami DEFY that no medical agent" of any kind performed SO MANY CUKES du- ring the last year, of those diseases last named, as UL VXR.VA CIIERS ELECTRKCIIAINS. And to prove this assertion, we- defy any person to produce so many well authentica- ted certificates of Scientific Physicians and intelligent patients as may found in a pamphlet of 'M pages, to be- had (gratis) of tin- agent in this town. The Electric Chains were flrst introduced in trance in 18.50. and after being subject- ed to the most THOROUGH AND RIGID TRIAL, by the first medical men in Paris, thcv were found to possess strange and marvel- ous power in relieving pain, wherever ap- plied, and by their influence were introdu- ced into the hospitals of that city, and also secured by letters, patent from the French Government. They are now introduced into almost ev- ery Ho-pital iu England, Germany, Austria, Belgium, and patented in those countries where they have become the MOST POPULAR CURATIVE AGENT IX THE WORLD t They were first introduced into the Uni- ted States about one year since, and went through the same trial as in Europe-, and were at once introduced into e-verv Hospi- in Xew York-, where thev arc now'in daily use, effecting even MORE WOXDERFUL CURES than hud ever before been awarded them. They nre highly recommended hv Profs. ulentine Molt, Van liitren, Post and oth- ers, who have published Iheir views of their power and value in several of Ihc medical journals in that city, and arc also in the daily practice of recommending their use to patients.
