e, and he saw the little birds fl\ing al:)out.It was late in the autumn, and the dead leaxes werelying all over the ground. As the little fellow trottedthrough them, he thought they were singing to him;so he talked to them in his baby language, and theybecame his friends. He went on and on, as lomj as he heard thesonQf of the leaves and the chatterinij of the littlebirds. Often little rabbits jumped across his path ;they were not afraid of such a little fellow and satupon their haunches to see what new kind of animalhe might be. By and by, the birds went to sleep ; the forestbecame dark ; and the little boy could not see. Thenhe thought of his mama and papa and began to cry. When a little child cries because he is hungry,his voice often sounds like that of a baby bear. A big mama bear was just coming through theleaves, and, when she heard the baby crying, shebegan to hunt f)r what she thought was a lost babybear, and at last she found him.

When he was still an infant, Deming’s family moved from his birthplace in Ashland, Ohio, to western Illinois, an area that during those pre-and post-Civil War years retained a frontier character, and where roaming Winnebago Indians were sometimes neighbors. While still in his teens, Deming traveled to Indian territory in Oklahoma and sketched extensively. Determined to become a painter of Indians, he enrolled at the Art Students League, then spent a year at the Académie Julian in Paris (1884−85), studying under Gustave Boulanger and Jules Lefebvre. Back in the United States, he worked the next two years painting cycloramas. In 1887 Deming first visited and painted the Apaches and Pueblos of the Southwest. His active career of painting and illustrating took him repeatedly to the lands of the Blackfoot, Crow, and Sioux, as well as to Arizona and New Mexico. After the turn of the century, Deming devoted more time to sculpture but also began work on a series of romantic murals of Indian life, which were subsequently installed in the American Museum of Natural History and the Museum of the American Indian in New York.
