Visitors to the exposition last year who spent any time at the Indian department will entertain pleasant recollections of John Hollow Horn Bear. John is a stalwart Indian who has succumbed in a measure to the enervating influences of civilization.

John Hollow Horn Bear is very anxious to make another visit to Omaha and pose before admiring crowds. He is much interested in the Greater America exposition and has written to W. H. Liddlard — "Rattlesnake Peat" — in reference thereto John writes.
