the youth who stood before him, ac
cused, had won his warrior's feathers
in the same medicine-dance ceremony
which had acclaimed himself, Achoo
sha, chief of all the lodges of the tribe.
Too, the youth Nepahwis and he had
played together, hunted together as
boys in the woodlands along the creek
bottoms of this vast game-plenty land.
There had been a little love affair
then, between Nepahwis and Weenoona.
A trivial little affair, pure and chaste.
Now—he must be stern. The traditions,
the laws of the people rested upon
him. This youth had committed a seri
Achoosha, thoughtful a moment, said
bitterly to Nepahwis: "You may keep
your bow, your quiver full of arrows,
your hunting-knife — but — you cannot
keep the warrior's feathers in your
hair. They must be thrown to the

that. His fine muscles tensed! His
eyes blazed defiance at those in the
circle. He trembled—
THEN HE FELT thé maiden's soft
hand upon his arm—. Yes, she would
stand with him, die with him if they
must, yet she restrained him. What
had she seen when looking into the
eyes of the chief? Did the eyes be
seech? Implore? Instantly, again, they
were unsympathetic, pitiless.
The three feathers motioned idly back
and forth in the breeze where they
were fastened with tiny sinew thongs
to his shiny, rich, black hair—which
hung in two large braids over his
shoulders, down to his waist-line. She
too, had beautiful hair—not so black
and glossy—just as rich; longer, light
er in color, almost a gentle brown.
Suddenly she reached, jerked his
feathers loose, let them flutter down.
One fell lightly «across her dainty
moccasined foot. There would be no
use to resist or flee, she wisely rea

them, slay them, like uncanny spirits.
Meeshawask pointed, shouted, part
ly rose from where he sat. He felt a
fury that he dared not heap upon the
two. An astonished gasp came from
many of the others.
RECKLESSLY, SHE HAD sealed her
own fate along with his. The act said
plainly; shamelessly, she was ready to
share the penalty—even death. Hope
faded for Meeshawask.
Those gathered around outside the
council circle thought more humiliation
would come now—perhaps concerning
his bow and arrows. They knew any
decision of the chief, whatever it was,
would be absolute. Many sympathized
with the youth and maiden—but justice
must be done.
"You," Achoosha turned again to the
girl, "will take your deer-skin robes.
They will shelter you over this one
night. In the morning, at sun-rise, I
will come to the hill-top over the dry
valley and with my uplifted hand will
come your sentence . . . Go."
The eyes of the youth blazed again.
He knew, with a motion he could bring
his bow to position, arrows to his hand;
better, death, than to submit to such
humiliation ... He breathed sharply:
