a long while I suffered with stomach troub!c. I would
have pains and a heavy feeling after my meals, a most
disagreeable taste in my mouth. If I ate anything with
butter, oil or grease, I would spit it up. I beran to have
regular sick headache. I had used pills and tablets, but
after a course of these, I would be constipated. It just
seemed to tear my stomach all up. I found they were

and her whole holy tremled as from
an overiastering physical contact.
This smell was unlike all others; the
inind gave it color and substance. It
crept through the forest like a dark
cloud, an oinnous warning to all fraIl
creatures to get out of the way. She
felt suddenly cold andl(] glanel over
her shoulder with a half-forined notion
ot retreat; then her eyes fell on
M'sungo and she for'got all else in an
absorption that wit above fear.

ignorant of the majesty of the Intes

beasts, snatched a fleeting impressIon

of wind. A great trunk wound and

M'sungo relaxed his grip; Bathtub

sack but bounced up again, all his
emotions except fear once more in full

Andrea laid both hands on M'sungo's
arm. "It wasn't his fault," she gasped.
"I started to do just what you told
me, White Man. You know you saw
me hugging the trbe. But when I heard

She ilropled her head against him
and sobbed. He put his arm around

"Don't. Please don't." Seemingly with

"All right," said Andrea, docilely.
