CHAPTER 117 ' V
Near where "the pwift'-rollinr' Karr!n
isiique cmpues itself into the
so many mouths that the stranger s ofien
lost in their winding, and speks in iraiu
for the main stream, was the heme camp
infT-ground of the ..Ojibways. Upon ihe
very spot where; their wigwams "were
.built, standing, jin picturesque confusion
about, is now Fori" William, one of the
frontier trading posts of that grasping:
monopoly, the Hudson , Eay Company.
From the labors and. excitement of the
hunt, or the more dangerous path of war,
thither the chiefs returned to rest, feast
and; ofTer sacrifices V Jo 'the Manitou
waited upon by their wives and daughter?,
who were veryKlave8 to, their lords and
parents hewers of wood and drawers of

if not greater devotion to one ihui gifted
than' their morp'ciiltivated bri'Iirs was

brothers bad pissed from earth to the
shadowy land of. spirits, on the 'bloody
path of : battle, when the fire-weapons of
the white man thinned theirranks, and
fireshadjwcd the fate that should follow
th?m to'.al destruction. Far and wide
i'The Great Monitou guards his red
children as well in the forest as in the
wigwams cf the Ojibways."
vThe wigwam of Fire-Fly is lonely."
"A-puk-wa has never entered there,
lie knows not."

Aware, that it was simply, useless to
bandy words with the girl, whom he had
long and urgently sought to fill his wijy

lightly turn away all his advances, to the
subject that was nearest and dearest to
hi? heart, the swarthy brow nf the Indi

Wiil Fire-Fly lock within her heart

asked, undecided how to act, for his cun

time to cool, and sober reason was busy

man, she had been strikingly impressed
with the difTerent treatment of her sex.
and so resolved never to own one of her
tribe as master. No. offerings ihat had
ever been laid at the door of her wigwam
had ever been taken in, and no Irav
ever received a smile of encouragement
When the bright, sun of morning fun;

Fiy issued frorii the screening rurttios of
her l.-dge. Her tall, slander fijure was
clad in the .most snow ily-dressed dee
skins, quill and wampum-worked and
bad frinored. Among the midnijhl bra d
of her hair a single feather, torn from
the great war-easle, was twined, and
drooped daintily over her shoulder a
token of her rank.
:'Wi'h a light rapid step she threaded
br way through the encampment, and
d apparrd in the thickets that formed
a dark back ground to the scene. Secure
from prying eyes, after having wandered
far, sh seated herself upon a fallen tree,
and began weaving a basket of green
twigs and blood-hued flowers of th
moisture-loving larch. Communing with
hawk.-' If she would, she could not be
dtaf to its sound."
' "The wigwam of A-puk-wa is fiTe
with the meat and hung arourd with the
scalps -of his enemips; but there is no
squaw thre li cook to grind the maiz,
mend his moccasins, or welcome hjm
when he returns faint and hungry."
"There are many maidens in th l-vges
of the Ojibwavs that would glad-n the
warrior's he irt."

"The maidens of the forst will not be

him spak th"y will answer."
"And Fire-Fly ?" .
"Her Jinh' must still remain to gladden
the looge of hr father."
"Fie will tell yon," she continued, un
midful of his word; "he who has learned
from the spirits of the air, that one from
wjiose lips a promise is forced is freed
therefrom by th laws of the Ojibways,
and the mandates of the Great Manitou.
A-puk-wa knows this."
"Your promise or dpa'h!' thundered
the brnwny wafiror, knowing that" his
fae hung between the two that in th
coTd grave she would perforce b silent,
