'die old Iiuliiiti town ot Pasca pii'ila teems with historic ami leg endary lore, hut ' there is one par ticular spot which possesses a pe culiar clinrni forilio tourist mul rouinncer. Ju-tnt the jiinclirni of the I'rtscHpou la river mul the buy, in n wild, piciuresqtie spot, a mys terious melody tlonis above the wa ters. Sometime, when thealnios pliere is pnriicnlarly calm und srnively a breeze rnfllos the sur face ol' ihn lake beyond, the xounJs ivsembln Hie exquisite blending of hundreds of vlilian harps in con cert ; afrniii, when (lie waves rise hijih and llie nlorm is hlirond, the notes resemble 'he confu'ed ninr iiiiirof intiiiy voices, hollow 'and uuiteral us ihe diFcordanl echo of an Indian w;lf diilfce. For agres past ttii' jdienomenon has ntinicUd Iho Hltenlioii ol si'icnlific invest malors, and in the early lii-tory of Ihe country dele- lalions ! experts were ireuuenl ly sent, out to discover its possible causes. In tho entiv part of our own century, within tho memory of an old ladv who-e home has stood for neailv eiiihiv vears near this identical spot, a company of Kentlemen from New Orleans came and encamped lor many weeks in its vicinitj. They brought with them experienced divers and all Ihe implements necessary for a thorough scientific investigation. Tliev studied the probable eftec is ot the tides, the motion of the wind and wave1, atmospheric pressure, eic. ; t lie divers went down into Ihe bed ot (he river, where Ihe sounds were loudest and wildest: bill like preceilin?; expe ditions no satisfactory conclusion could be arrived at, and the sub ject was finally dismissed as one ot I hose curious natural phenome na which must ever baffle the ad vance of science. Many have ilmught that the mu sic i'-sues from cavernous grottoes in the bed of the river; sometimes it ascends from Ihe water nnder the very keel of the boat which contains the inquisitive traveler; sometimes it seems lo float like the echo of fairy shells upon the surface of the water iiselt: again it seems lo be in Ihe sir above and around; and olien when its nnles are loudest aud most confused it seems lo proceed from the direc tion of Snake bayou, a sluggish stream that empties into rasciigou la river near the mouth. Many quaint and mvsterious leg ends are, oi course, connected with nielodv so unnatural, but per haps one of the most romantic is that of the Indian maiden, Ora- maika, and her lover. Oramaika wa. the beautilul dark-eyed daughter of lite chief of the Pascagoula nation. She had long worshiped in secret fjiilla wah, the prido of Ihe Mobelian braves. Iiis prowess, his daring, the number ol scalp which hung at Iiis bell, all proclaimed him a warrior of the gundest type, "d liN manly graces anil beauty made his name synonomotn far and near with all that was pleasing and grateful l'j the (Jreat Spirit. ; Odea had h. stopped at the rVearmul.i seiiJement lo smoke the calumet of peace in friendly alliance wilhthst tribe, or to pre pare lo lead their warriors on lo victory nguiusL a common foe. Often had Uraniaik seen him Ihus at the war. council of her Iribc, fling: his tomahawk into the air and h ap lo hi feet as it struck si ra i s tit into the warrior poi-l eree'ed in the center of the group, and with burning eloquence re count his exploits, while tho old men applauded and the young ones cried out: 'Might y is. fSulta wah 1 Great and slroni' in battle is the young brave of the Mobili ans 1 The old warriors shall praise him and the young mMi shall do him homage, and Ihe dark eyes of ihe Indian maiden slmll shine like slurs at his approach !" liul here Sullawah wnulJ spring to his feel ami say: "Sweet is Ihe praise of Ihe warrior! arr.iws and lealhers shall be a crown for his head! but Sullawah lovr?s not the letters with which.. women bind their warrior's brow! What. are I hey to the yniinyc Mobilian brave? What are a woman's smiles to the proud chieftain's heart?. Like Ihe dead leaves of the loresl when au tumn is past, like the gleam of the trackless swamp they waken no pleasure in his soul. Sullawah haih his victories like II: o stars in the heavens; his tomahawk is the surest and swillest, Jn the tribe, He can tread like a serpent to sur prise the enemy sleeping by Ihe camp lire, suiiawnii loves ine warpath and tlie chase and the smell of blood in ihe track ol Ih hunter. He hath an eye like hawk, and an arrow with wings like tlie eagle ; and he hath a fool like the panther stealing stealthily among Ihe bushes. His glory is (he war whoop and the scalpm knife! his bride is Ihe song of vie tory! but Sultawah sloops not to court the smile of woman !" Oramaika, looking upon him thus, so brave, so free, so daunt less, Ihe pride and glory of both tribes, despite his cruel words lelt her heart go forth to him wilhau homage as pure and grateful as that which the wild flowers of her native forests yielded to the low ering trees whose gloiy overahad owed them, tful it was 111 vain that she sent him the fruit and In dian corn Irom her own wigwam In vain she herself, the proud princess ot the 1 ascngoulas, pre pared his couch and meals with her own hands, and adorned his tent with skins and trophies of yio: tory. bnltawah smiled not, nor heeded Lev presence, and sad mid disheartened Eho would leave he voting companions a.ud wander for hours on the river bank, Ihmking of him and dreaming the dream that are so sweet to youthful hope and innocence. Upon those banks all tho truth the poelrv, the ardor of her pas sion seemed ennobled ami purified ov association with nil that was holv and sympathetic) in nature and the winds, and the trees, and the birds, Ihe flowers became her confidantes and shared the secret of her love for the Mobilian chief tain. Her lancy at once assisted in exaggerating his graces, aud she oflen became startled in the midst of her reverie by finding her lips echoing a song as sweet as (hat which lingered in her heart. "Thou dost love Ihe brave Sul lawah f" Oramaika started , she thought no one kne of her famili ir hauul, and, suprised and vexed, she saw lollowing close upon her looMeps legithka, ihe venerable soot.isay- er of the I'ascagoulans. Tegithka boasteJ of a miraculous birth, hav ing had neii her father nor mother, but. being a direct emanation from a cloud of mingled darkness and light, during a terrible famine which prevailed among tho I'ascs- goulans. She had brought with her bread, direct from the Great Spirit, sufficient to maintain the tribe till the next harvest, whence the origin of Ihe name 1'ascagou- lans, or ''bread eaters." Tegithka knew all the secrets of the past, present and future, and was held in great veneration by Ihe tribe. When she now addressed Ora maika. though the girl resented the intrusion, she dared not incur the displeasure of the old crone. "Thou dost love the brave Sul lawah I l'r three ni"ons thou hast eaten nothing, neither hail thou smiled, nd Ihe young warriors of thy tribe are sad because Oramai ka's brow is dark. .'Th luree neons since Ihe youn? Mobilian has returned to his nation, and each night I lion dost enms to the spot where his canoe did cut Ihe water lo fit and dream of thy love. Bui h-3 conies not lo tee thee, for never yet hss Sulfawali looked with love into ihe eye ol woman! and shall Oramaika, lor whose atrtile hulf the Pascagoula braves would hlw 1 iheir life's t iood shall Oramaika droop and lade be cause Sulta wall loves her i.ot ?" Tho maiden hung her head ; a tear trembled upon her dark litshe. wlla !' sid the old woman, peer ing into her faoe, -thou art like all Ihy sex ; lhnu wilt luro from those who love thee to place ihy heart where it finds n haven. But thou doM loye Sultawah! Ihy quiver ing lif und Irembling form pek but loo well. Have. then, thy wish. Thou shall win his lov and for brief season th'nl wilt think I hat the happy hunting prrnndi, hich death rive lo the brave warrior and his faithful mak, have 1 come iven in this life, Sultawah, now so cold and proud, shall bow before thee;, he shall plead for thy kisses like a child asking for bread, but it shall be only lor a season. Like the swift passage of a bird through the air shall be Ihe hour') in which ho shall love thee ; like the p issing breath of a flower shall be the kisses from his lips. Otalka shall conic Otalka, Ihe hope of thine own tribe, who has loyed thee long and well, lie shall slay the brave Sultawah, because unasked he won (he love thou didst refuse Otalka.' He shall slay him when the moon is bright ami thou fancv thv love secure. And thou " "Oh I Tegithka," cried Oramai ka, "the Indian maiden will die with her lover; ihe samo arrow that pierces his heart will cleave her own!" "Have, then, thy wish," said Tegilhka, "Hie thee to yonder bank and bring me those quiver ing reeds ami grasses ; with them I shall bind thee nu instrument of wondrous shape and melody lo wake Sullawah's love, for he was a child of tho sea aud nature should enchain Us own." She took Ihe reeds and grasses which Oramaika brought and wove them intoa peculiarly shaped in strument, and giving it to the girl said : "For three moons thou shalt meet me here, and 1 will teach thee strains that will touch Sulla wah's heart; and on the night of the fourth moon, the adored of Ihy heart shall come to ply his canoe in these waters : thou shall sing thy song, Sullawah shall hearken and yield himself a captive at thy feet." . ' It was Iho- night of the 'fourth moon. Oramaika, arrayed in the pieturesque garb ot an Indian princess sought Ihe river bank Beneath Iho overhanging shadow of a grove of oaks she rested and breathlessly awaited Ihe coming ol the canon. Not onoe lid slia doubt, lor Tegithka. had foretold his coming, and llie old crone nev er prophesied in vain. Suddenly I lie steady stroke ot an oar broke upon Ihe soilness, and ,;ly ihe pale light of the moon Oramaika dis cerned the outline of Sullawah's canoe boldly skimming the waves. Her heart almost ceases to beat and tremblingly she strikes her instrument, and he hears an echo that is neither the brueza' whisper ing among Ihe trees nor Ihe birds telling Iheir good night to Ihe stars. Sweeter and more alluring seem the strains, softer and more pleading sounds the singer's voice ; something he has never experi enced . before seems suddenly awakened iu Sultawah's heart and filling it with btrauge and conflict ing emotions. Ihe voice seems like the echo of a far oil' dream be once experienced after a glorious victory upon these 6ame waters, a vague, phantom haunting memory he could never understand. Cu riously he steered his canoe to the bank, und there, with her glorious eyes raised ajoir, ami me moon beams glinting like silvery ripples, among Iho meshes of her dark hair, was Oramaika. Site seethed unconscions of his approach,-and aang and played as niougn ner theme wern loo pure and lofty for earth. Sultawah, looking upon her Ihus, thought lie had never be held anything so beautilul or so fascinating Could this be Orama ika, the Indian maiden whom he had so lately spurned, and where had she learned the . witchery of such melody f Be stood rivited to Ihe spot, a strange, new feeling thrilled him Ihrough-dare he speak to her now, when she seemed so far ( above all he bad ever thought or dreamed of I But, hush! He hears his name. Can it be thai she is recounting his deeds of valor, his tritimps yet lo bef Aud, sweetest ot all, the sings ol love, out not tne love known to mortal. 11 it a divine, ideal flame that consumes her na ture, a heavenly spark that she would communicate to his, and she throws into her song nil earneil- ness of purity anil I ruth, winch can alope win Sullawah's heart. The oars drop from his hand, he springs ashore ne, . me inignty warrior, wlio has never yielded to Ihe witchery ot woman's charms ami irt another instant he was kneeling at her leel and mnrmur irp "Ha is hero, thy lover, thy warrior; lie kneels willing cap live at thy feet! He asks no lifMin gave lo bok once intt OraniaikVs eyes and drink but once the love that trembles opna her lips ! Aud then, oh, mot glorious of thy race, the proud Mobilian bra ve- iM be cou tent lo die if only Orartiitika's arm shall enfold htm and tbe Ira prance of her breath will warm his in I bat last , moment 1 But the maiden snwered : "Nay, rather let Ormmk be Sul la wh ffare. Sh i!l bind her warrior browwiiH lftun wl as roes: she will bring him hi tomahawk auJ Ids arrows, and her heart will be sad because her lord is not near ; and when he returns she will run (o meet him, like a faithful slave, and prepare his couch lhat he may slumber. The smoking venison and Ihe sweetest corn, and w.itur clear as crystal shell refresh him when he awakes: and then Oramaika shall sit at her warrior's feel, and sing to him and drive the shadows from his brow! See, Oramaika kneels to her lord!" and ere he could prevent she was bathing bis feet vrilh her tears and wiping them with her long, raven hair. He raised her gently and look her hand, and then oh! the stars smiled down and Iho moon beams quivered about lieiii, and the river murmured musically on, and s'.ill Sultawah 'lingered at Ora maika's side, siill she listened to Iiis vows of love, while ever and anon she touched her instrument, and Ihe two voices told Ihe listen ing heavens the hopes that thrill ed within them. When they part ed it was with the promise to meet again. And so each night when (he moon rose the Indian maiden went lo meet her lover and hear the story that had grown so sweet lo both, and each night the dark and jealous eyeofOlalka was upon them. lie had m irked the ab sence of Oramaika from the settle ment and followed her to her tryst ing place with her lover, and like an angry serpent darling venom ous rage from both eyes, he watch ed I he in through the shadow of the forest. lie knew now why Ora maika had rejpeted his suit and he secretly planned revenge. On the night of Ihe fourth moon he shadowed Uramaika's loot steps. He saw her greel her lover and Ins heart burned Willi tne flame of jealousy 'and vengeance, lie noted Suttawah'a. caresses and tho light of love that shone in the girl's eyes. His hand was ready to speed an arrow when he saw her cling lo her lover at parting, and noted that she wamnly sooth ed by the promise, Unit but one moon should elapse and then the Mobilian brave -would come to claim his bride. lie heard Sulta wah chide her gently for liar tears, and bade her1 strike her instru ment answer his. love message from over the waters till Ihe canoe could be seen no more, and only the beating of their hearts keep up the melody. And then Sullawah pressed her fo his bosom, sprang into his boai, and dipped Ins oars in the waters, while uramaiKa slood upon the shore in the moon- light playing upon hor wierd in strument and chanting : "The heart of tho Indian maiden knows no joy ; the days will be sad, the tiighis will be drear, and though the stars shine, she will see them not, for Ihe star of her soul is not near!' And Sultawah answered from over Ihe waters, "Let Ihe heart of Oramaika rejoice, let her dance with her maidens, let her prepare Ihe bridal feast, for in one moon Sullawah shall return and shall claim Iiis dark-eyed bride." And then the oars fell from his hands ; an arrow sped bv an un erring hand had taken effect; the bright blood gushed lroin his bos om aud dved the stream crimson; heslrugjled lo swim, but another arrow ; swift and sure, pierced his heart. A wild cry burst from Ihe shore. ''Sultawah I Sultawah ! Oramaika shall die with thee!" and in another instant Ihe girl was battli-tig with (he waves. Her out stretched arnn were about lo clasp the sinking body of her lover, when the dark figure of Otalka, swimming with powerful strokes toward her, caught her in his em brace and held her fast. I'liou shalt not dio . with the lr..:lor, Sultawah! thou shall die iu Otalka's arms; and though thou lovesl him not, thou shall be his bride, even I hough il be in death 1" and (lie dark waves closed over them, and Ihey sank to rise no more. The Mobilians sent. to enauire what had kept Sultawah so long from the chase and ihe warpath, aud simultaneously from Ihe Pas- cucoula settlement rose the cry : "Where were Otalka and Oramai ka P And only old J'egitnka, as she sat hy the flickering camp light, tol I ih9 story 'of their love aud their deaths, in- (he wierd, wild chant ol her nation.
