The first one...Indian Messiah and the Cat (1890)

Two articles of note in this scan from the Bridgeport Morning News of 1890.

 One is about a woman going out to try to talk the Sioux Indians from believing a Messiah was coming who would "destroy all the whites, bring the dead back to life, and make the Indians once more powerful and rulers of the land."

She was on the way to the famous Sitting Bull's camp...

The other involves a cat who gave everyone diptheria. Enjoy.
