A Buffalo Bill Indian Dead.

Man-Afraid-of-Hawk, aged twenty-one, a full-blooded Sioux Indian connected with the Buffalo Bill Wild West Show, died at the Danbury Hospital to-night after a brief illness from inflammation of the stomach. Eagle Bear, another member of the show, is also in a critical condition. A number of other attaches were ill upon their arrival here this morning, but with the exception of the two Indians none of the cases is of a serious nature. It is believed the men were made sick through eating canned corn.
