He recognised his sister floating through tho phantom corps do bauet, and rushed to embrace her. but she vanished like a dream of the night. Tharonbiawagou, however, kindly ftirnihod our adventurer with a mystical rattle of strange muBical power; and when tho sound of the spirit-drum, which marks the time for tbo choral dance of thoso blessed shades, had sum moned them back to their places, and the Indian flute poured tho enchanting notes that lift them along, upon a tide of melody, the magic rattle of Saya dyio, a stronger "Medicine" than either, charmed the soul of the Indian maiden within the reach of her brother.
