Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 036
Description biggest Indian war we ever had in the territory, broke out. Some of our dearest friends were its earliest victims." I had heard in Salt Lake City of the power of Baptiste's "med- icine," and observing the interest my questions evinced in the subject, the Steerforths brought round to me a neighbor, who had been an eye-witness of one of his performances. I think I have from him a reliable circumstantial account of the transac- tion of a Ute pow-wow cure. According to this citizen's relation, he chanced to be in Wah- ker's camp when a noted Indian-I think he said Arrahpene- was taken alarmingly ill. Wah-ker despatched a man and boy to bring Baptiste. They took two ponies with them, and left the camp at three in the morning for Baptiste's lodge, fifty miles off. Half way there the man halted with one of the ponies, sending the boy on with the other. Baptiste and his squaw, carrying a "bag of needments," made such good speed with the aid of the pony relays that they reached Wah-ker's camp before sunset. Baptiste entered the sick man's lodge alone; but several per- sons, and among them my informant, peeped in through the opening between the skins; and, after Baptiste's attention was absorbed in his patient, they stole inside the lodge. Arrahpene lay on the ground in a stupor, seeming to take no notice of the conjuror. Baptiste now took from his bag sundry nondescript articles, which he hung solemnly upon a pole, and kindled a fire of sticks in the centre of the lodge, on which, from time to time, he threw a powder from his pouch, which made a noisome smell. He then began walking round and round his patient, as the mesmerists are said to do, always keeping his old witch's face toward him. 36
