During her 20 years of range riding and cattlo shipping-, Mrs. Nat Collins was known throughout Montana as orTo of the best cattle women in the west and her judgment was often deemed hetter than that of promin- ent stockmen.

Mrs. Collins was virtually reared ou the plains, coming west with her par- ents in 1S59. In 1S62, when about 15 or 10, with her parents, drove to Mon- tana with a train of mules. Many hardships were suffered'by the train and among them was a fight with a herd of buffalo. They had been gone about five days from Denver and were pulling cainp when they a herd of buffalo stampeding toward them. As the herd passed they discovered it was driven hy Indian hunters. The latter spied the train and came to the camp. Indian Squaws Eat First The emigrants, wishing to he -.as hospitable and friendly as possible, gave them food and drink, cooking the bacon over the fire. Although the, In- dians plainly showed .they were not inclined- to lie friendly they accepted tho food. Sirs. stated that berc she saw the Indians do something lhat she has never seen since hnd that was they seated their smiaws around the fire and gave them fooil first. Then the men seated -about the fire and the squaws waited upon them.. Nest morning the train hroke camp nntl ,resumed its journey. The In- dians, stiH suspicious oE followed them for three days hut finally at a splitting of the trails left them. Mrs. Collins because -of her riding ability and good hearing was ap- pointed scout and rode abead of the train looking for.Indians. A few days later It camped near tho Big Horn river, having been warned of Indians camped near there- The wagons were drawn up in a "half-moon" anil all Cic slock put in- side the semi-circlo. Scouts wero sent to investigate. Collins was one df the scouts. There wore ab'out Indians cnmped at Fort Smith, an old trading- post, who were preparing to cross the Big Horn river. Papooses, tents were thrown into haffalo rohes in which were holes for breathing had been ci'it and the robes wero then drawn taunt with huckskin thongs. Sev.ero.1 of the men mounted their horses, took the ends of the strings in their mouths and thus fordoil the river. Indian squaws and larger chil- dren clung to the sides of the robe canoes and were drawn across the stream. Bear Gets Her Heat One day Mrs. Collins was cutting steak from tho buffalo wbcn she heard a crash in the bushes and looked up to ecu a grizzly heat coming toward her. She Jumped into the wagon and tho hear took the meat in his month and proceerlcd down the river.
