Then graq^ing my heart and nervee for an instant, I gathered myself, and turned backward thraogh the opening.

I went there to trade, and, hsving got angry at tha trdttnsat, tUuugh I wdl knew that I ought to le an the valley at onoe, I, like afool, resolved .to oross the stream and b ra n the duger. So I folded and rode into the oimp. Jspctke to no one; no one spoke to me. Tlie sullen bravee turned their baeks oh me ss I rode up the etreet. The young girls looked euriously at ms.

Before me stood a great tent made of buffalo akinSi I t was the largaa 11 had seen. I hdted, dismounted, and stood silently at my horse’s head.
