the ax was shockingly dull. So, motioning
the owner to turn the grindstone,
he expended a half hour's time
in sharpening the blade. When the
rehabilitated ax was given to the Indian
he was childishly gleeful, but
still lingered about, indicating by his
actions that some feature of the
transaction had nof been adjusted.
