BI9BEE DAILY REVIEW SUNDAY MORNING, MAY 17, 1903. PAGE 11 It lU & 1 4 If? A BEAUTIFUL LITTLE LEGEND. INDIAN 2 5 That there was to to a story told was evident, by one oJ the youns In dians bringing a small armful ol sticks and building a Are near the south edge ot the mesa. Sq.uaU.oi around this fire was the story teller, an old Indian, Frank, the interpreter, and myself. The fire was just big enough to illum inate our three faces, while squatted in the semi-darkness, in a circle around us, were son-o forty or fifty other Indians. From time to time the old Indian would either put an other stick on the flre, or push one in that was further burned. At times in telling the story he would hiss out his words, and his eyes would blaze when he recited about the wrongs done to his people, and at other times his voice would be low and soft. One could almost hew a tear In it. I almost knew the story before It was repeated to me, and how tho old man would watch Frank while he was repeating it, although ho un derstood never a word. "A long time ago our people occu pied all of this country south of here. Their villages were everywhere; they were good people;they were happy; they increased In numbers; they were not warriors, neither were they hunt ers, , but they planted the corn and melon, and the Great Spirit was good to them. Their crops were abundant, and they hungered not. Dut after a time they were greatly troubled by bad Indians who came from the south and made war on them, destroying their villages and their crops, and killing our people. Our people were good popple, not warrior. Their bows and arrows were made but to hunt the rabbit and the bird. They were mere children's playthings com pared with those or tne Daa inuians. Little by little they were driven far ther north, abandoning their fields and villages. Their wives and children cried for food, but there was none. They hungered much. At last they came to a high range of mountains. These they crossed, but the bad In dians did not follow them over the mountains, and again they raised crops, and were happy, and they hun gered not. At this time they were ruled by a chief, a good man, wise in counsel. He had a good heart, and was loved by all of his people. This good chief was the father of a son and seven daughters. When the youngest daughter grew to womanhood, she was the most beautiful woman that ever lived. Her hair was black as the crow's wing, eyes like the stars, teeth whiter than our whitest corn, a walk like an antelope. She was wor shiped and loved by all of our people, and the nride of her father, but a great sorrow came upon them. The brother wanted his young sister1 for a wife. He would not listen to the counsel of his father and the wise men, who told him that should he take his sister for a wife, the Great Spirit would be an gry, their crops would fail, and sick ness would fall among them. Twice did the son try to steal his sister and take her to the camp of the bad In dians. So his father banished him from among our people. The son went over the high mountains and Joined the bad Indians, who were camped on the other side. "Before this the good chief had se ninA ttio Kprvicea of Tump Totan (Stone Jacket), with his antelope with all eyes, who would tell him when the bad Indians were coming, to guard the trail on top of the mountains. "When the son would try to cross, with the bad Indians, to get his sister. Tump Totan would beat them back, killing many of them. But the son with his bad Indians never quit trying to cross the mountains, and the antelope, from always watching, became exhausted his bad Indians, came up and killed Tump Totan and his antelope. They then came down the mountain, killed a number of our people and carried off the seven sisters. Again our peo ple were compelled to flee farther tmrfh. The brother took his beautiful sister Into the camp of the bad In dians, and made her his wife, and our people mourned much, and the good chief, her father's, heart was . sore. The beautiful sister bore children from her brother, but she would not suckle them nor take care of them, but laid them out in the brush and rocks, and they became coyotes. There were no coyotes before. Since then there have been coyots, and the good chief grieved much. His heart was sore, and the Great Spirit saw it, and told him to grieve no more, "for I shall soon take all ot your daughters up to heaven, where I am, and give them a place In heaven, where all coming generations will see them and worship them And the Great Spirit let sickness fall among the bad In dians and tho seven sisters died, and the Great Spirit took them up to .i tho old man hung his head for a few moments, as if in silent prayer, then raised It slowly and looking up he pointed to the seven stars, saying: "There they are; the brightest one is the beautiful sister."
