THE TRAPPER'S PERIL.
A LEGEND OF LAKE SUPERIOR.
HY WU. H. BUSHNELL.
It ras noon in the camping.ground of
the Ojibways, and a silence like death
reir.ttj there . All work was suspend
ed. Paddles, panoes baskets, all reniain
d unfi:iished. The erer noisjr children
had suddenly disappeared from sig-ht al
together or were cautiously peering out
from behind the covering of the wig
warns. Even the snarling, thieving, half
starved dog3 were silent. ' But one hu
man figure was visible, and that wa3
the captive Le Sueur, who, fettered to a
post in the centre of the group of lodges,
stood awaiting his doom.. Yet in te
largest wigwam in the encompment the ar
biters of fate had assembled, and were in
earnest debate as to what manner of
death he should die, for that he fhould
perUhhad long been settled in the minds
of ali. With the gaudily-painted and
hieroglyphical-marlced curtains closely
drawn, the elders and the braves of the
tribe sat f-rpoking as calmly as'if engaged
in a pleasurable pastime. - The pipe
passed slowly around the circle the
fragrant smoke of the dried willow was
puflVd in wreaths irom the wide-spread
nostrils the sacred fire of the Medicine
was kindled in the center, and the great
chief a nd.fa thereof Fire-Fly arose.
"The pale face," began Leaping
Thunder, "has stolen like a serpent into
the hunting-grounds of the Ojibways. -He
has fished in the streams, shot in
the forests and taken the beaver and otter
in his iron traps. My brothers know the
laws cf the tribe let them say what
shall be his doom.
"Death!' responded all, while the cir
cling calumet ceased to be handed about,
nnd the fire within it was allowed to go
out an emblem, perchance, of what
should be ; for was not the mystic flame
of life to be quenched, and naught but
the cold, inanimate ashes remain?
"It is well!" hoarsely breathed the
Medicine, in a croaking voice, while the
carrion crow that sat upon hi? shoulder an
swered with a loud "caw," and the fang
less serpent in his hand reared its
crest and hissed startlingly.
"isuch are the laws of the Ojibways,
given to them by the mighty Meda of
the Manitou, long before the paddle of
the pale-face ever broke their dark wa-
"Hugh.hagh V again answered all.
"Let my brothers think of his fate.
Not the death of a brave taken in battle

his end be." . '

the tap of the hunter, he meets not the
fate of the great bear that battles with
his enemies to the last,'1 interrupted
the. Medicine, shaking belh and wierd
emblems of power and dancing grotesque
"The MedicineV words are- straight
as the trail of truth." continued Leaping

stars, whispered by the winds, breathed
In perfutno by the flowers and raurmured

"All, save that reserved by the laws of
the Ojibwaysfor pne of their own braves
who proves falsa to his honor, his vows
when Jie first entered the council lodge,
learned its mysteries and became a
warrior, or dres to, raise his hand in
anger against one cf the tribe."
vThe Medicine speaks well. His

"It is well sj let it be," shouted the
Medicine, in exultation, shaking his rat
tles, and . waving' the writhing, hissing
snake around his head; while his ill
omened crow croaked cooly as if breathing
a satisfying amen to the verdict. m
'And now the fierce conclave was bro
ken up; the warriors stepped outside of.
the sacred council lodge ; two old and re
pulsive squaws brought rude drums and
beat a monotonous tune, and the dance
of death was begun begun even under
the very eye of their prisoner, who t ut
too well knew its meaning. Like fiend3
escaped from their penal; element, and
revelling in a short-lived holiday, they
circled, . twisted and leaped in uncouth
changes, with horrid grimaces and fear
ful fchouts, while the aged squaws beat
the drums and eang in strains, almost
All this Le Sueur saw, and knew that
it was but preliminary to his being the vic
tim of the most sever torture that their ssv
age brains could invent and their savage
hands execute. One thought given to the
home of his childhood ; oie prayer for
the aged mother, who would watch for
his coming; one half -formed anathema
against those who had lured him from 4
civilization, inculcated false precebts of
independence in his mind and trained him
to the wild and ever dangerous life of a
trapper, and then he nerved himself to
die a death qf uncomplaining and of defi
anca. The warriors tired with their frantic
exertions, and the man of mummery fa
tigued with his genuflections and contor
tions, sank upon the ground as the squaws
geather up their instrumets of deat,h and
disappeared. The signal was given and
the youths of the tribe gathered around
with their blunt-heanded arrows and dul
led knives. First, however, the squaws
completed the torture of hunger and
thirst, for not a morsel of food or drink
had passed the lips of Le Sueur since
the hour of his capture, as the Ojibways
believed in their savage superstition, that
a fasting sacrifice was the more accepta
ble to the Great Spirit. With dainty
food steaming- from the fire, and redolent
with savory juices and odors, and with
birchen cups filled with cool, clear water,
and dripping with freshness, they ap
proached him. One after the other was
neld to his lips, tempting to the utmost
he ravenous wolves of hunger and thirst
that were gnawing at bis very heart
strings but he smiled in disdain. A deli
cate morsel was placed between his
parched lips, with the rich juices gushing
out at the slightest pressure, and he spat
it in apparent anger to the ground. Too
well had he nerved himself to exhibit
pleasure that would only prolong his ag
on, and tend to render his torture more
And now that he had shown himself
brave, and not to be influenced by minor
matters minor, at least, in the eyes of
the red man the squaws ceased them ef
forts, and the ysuths formed a circle a
rouad 'With rapidity of lightning shost

and now and then one. bitttog him but
without severe injury. Firm as the

Le Sueur stood. Not a nerve quivered

To him who knew the customs of the
Indians in all their minutias this was but
pastime, and he laughingly and taunting

It mought do for old women and young
gah, but er old hunter laughs et yer for

A growl of anger burst from the lips
of the warriors, and the places of the
boys were instantly filled by them armed
with keen-edged knives and glittering
tomahawks. Still the prisoner felt that
he was safe, except from some cnlucky
blow some misdirected weapon; for it
was the pride of all to throw as near las
possible to the victim without injuring"
him, and he "who drew blocd or inflicted a
wound was scouted at and even rebuked.
But the play was becoming earnest. The
slender knives flashed through the sun
light, and struck quivering in the post,
and the tomahawks burried themselves
deeply in the wood, or tore ofF huge
splinters. Still Le Sueur stood firm,
knowing that it wa3 his enly chance for
safety, though it required a wonderful
command of nerve to do so. Many min
utes had he remained thus, when a knife
less dexterously thrown than the others,
cut the thongs that bound his hands.
The blood flowed in "a stream from one
of bis arms that had been wounded, and
the knife stuck deep and quivering in the
flesh : but stifling the heart-pang it created
the dauntless trapper folded his arms
without removing the weapon, and smiled
giimly around, while a mocking laugh
burst from his lips.
"Hi-yi-yi! Hi-yi-yi ! exclaimed the In
dians, completely thrown cfF their guard
and surprised from their usual stoical de
meanor by this unexpected. exhibition of
"Shdof awaj, yer neatnensf frio
yer never see er mm erfore, ye imps of
Satan?"- howled back the trapper; but
the swift-flying weapons cut1 his speach
short, and it required all his command to
A chosen few of the most skillfal nifni
ters had taken the places of the others,
and the keen-cuttiog and death-dealing
weapons were stuck into the post thick
as porcupine quills. So eager were they
to outdo each other, that more than one
had pierced the. skin, ginning legs. arms
and even head firmly, as if nailed there,
inflicting exquisite pain without in the
least endangering life. Intently was
his every motion watched to discover
signs of fear or pain ; but the weather
bronzed features of Le Sueur gave no to
ken. Baffled in this, they tired of their
inhuman sport and fell back in sullen an
ger. This moment of comparative' freedom
was not lost by the captive. Death he
knew would be the end, but should it
come to him unresisting ? Should he die
without a struggle, calm and unrevenged
-rdie as a lamb in a slaughter-pen?
Made of sterner stuff, and taught to look
upon an Indian as but one remove from
a beast, retaliation was as natural as
breath to him, and -'blood for blood" was
an immutable law. Seeing his torturers
thus idle and cast down, he suddenly
drew the knife from his arm, cut the
thongs from his feet, and stepped boldly
towards the astonished warriors.
"Now, ye blood-thirsty devils," he ex
claimed, waving the knife in hjsbleeding
arm, "jest send yer bravest along, and
I'll soon show him how a white man can
A hundred arrows were fitted to the
string, the bows strained to the utmost in
an instant, and his taunt would scon have
made him a target, had not the great
chief, Leaping Thunder, interfered.
"No warrior of the Ojibways crosses
weapons with the pale-face !" fie said.
" Then yer a pack of cowards, that's
all," replied Le Suer, looking cauliously
around him to discover some weak part
in the circle, throngh which he might
force a way with a chanca of success.
No answer was returned; but he
the cordon of dark forms rapidly con
tracting, and felt that he would soon
again be overpowered, and completely at
their mercy. A rapid glancea shout,
loud, ringing and clear as the clang -cf a
sharp-toned bell and he threw himself
upon them, dashed down the nearest,
plunging the knife hilt deep in his broad,
uncovered bosom. The savage fell with
a deep groan, bat his ringers had fasten
ed firmly in the strong buckskin hunting
shirt of the trapper, and he draged him
with him to the ground, Strong as were
his efforts, giant as wa3 th strength hi
put forth to free himself it was all in
vain. He was clutched in the unyielding
grasp of death, and before he could in
ibe least recover himself, was pinioned
in the arms of a dozen brawny savages,
infuriated at the probably fatal wouDd of
one of their number, bound ten times
more strongly, and re-led to the fatal
The I bed of a warrior cf the Ojibways
stains the green grass, and cries aloud
to the Great Manitou ! almost shrieked
the old Medicine, trembling with rage,
while tha crow croaked, and the serpent
hissed a diabolical accompaniment.
"Let the heart be torn from the breast
of the pale-face, and thrown lift-beating
as it is, blood 'throbbing, and ,quiv$??ijg

er of the sorely; wbunded man, dancing
with fiendish gestures around the priso

knotted war club, .
"The dark angel'of 'death shall swoop
open him likethe black buzzard upon the
cowardly hare, and that; quickly 1" said
Leaping Thunder. Let the torture of
the fire begin !'? Let the pale-face sing
his death song, and the spirits that dwell
in the pale man's hell fling open wide its
"It is well," responded the hoarse voice
of the Medicine, while the mystic em
blems of his calling whirled around his
head like the flail of a thresher, and the
satisfied passions of his heart glowed
through his dark eyes
Many willing forms sprang forward
to execute the orders cf the chieftain;
but even as they turned towards the pile
wf readily prepared wood, they started
back as if serpent-stung.
"A .ghcstl ghost 1" burst in terror
from every lip,
Le Sueur turned his eyes towards the
spot, and saw a painted warrior come
staggering along with the uncertain step
of a drunken man. A deep gash was
visible on his shaven head shaven close
ly, with the exception cf the scalp-lock ;
and the blood that had oczed from its
ragged and gaping lips had streamed
crer his face and breast, and had been
allowed to congeal there in great ghastly
drops. As he came nearer, the cry cf
the Indians changed from fear to anger,
They rattled their weapons, and stamped
furiously in the whirlwind of their pas
sion. "The tluiruh no ghost P reiounded
from all parts of the encampment.
It was indeed the fabe-hearted warri
or who had been struck down by the
hand of the trapper -the sworn friend
and compannion of the prisoner. Long
had he lain helpless j but at lerth re
covering, had crawled back to his wig
wam, learned what was going on, and
that5thehdaughter of the chief fiad not re
turned, an! so presented himself wjth a
ready forged tale to account for his injury-He
had been wandering in the forest,
he said, in search of game, when sud
denly he heard the voice of Fire-FJy,
shrieking in terror. In the direction of
the sound he rushed, prepared lo die for
her, when terrible thunder rocked the
earth; the red forked lightning rent the
heavens, and he was struck down insen
sabb. "By all that's wonderful," shouted Le
Sueur, " if lightning ever made such er
hole in er man's head, it must have used
e rifla lock for er bolt."
Swarthy eyes glared upon him at this
speech, and but little attention was paid
to it then, though it wa3 well remember
ed in the hereafter.
The tumult caused by the arrival of
the wounded brave ceased as suddenly as
it had begun, and the fagots were piled
quickly around the condemed man.
Now look your last, brave trapper of
the wilderness, upon the fair earth, the
master-work cf the Master Workman
whose own voice pronounced it "good."
The scathing fire shall sjrro-inl thee
the forked tocgues of the flames lap up
thy blood the yet throbbing heart shall
be torn from thy breast, and cast opo
the glowing coals thy body shall be
consumed, and thy ashes scattered to the
Sternly and sudden came the CCm
mand from the lip of ihe Medicine, but
the hand of the chief stayed its execution.
He had searched in vain for his beautiful
daughter, and with a heart tern between
love for her and revenge upon the pale
face, he knew not how to act.
Fire-Fly! Fire-Fly!" burst in sor
rewful accents from his Jif s.
"Let the pale-face die first, ani then
shall Fire-Fly be found."
"It must be so! Fire!"
But even as the flames were being ap
plied, a runner, faint from fatigue, burst
suddenly from the woods into ths circle,
waving wildly a strip of silvery bark
above bis head. In the hands of Leap
ing Thunder he placed it, and then fell
head long to the ground, with the blocd
gashing from nostrils and math, and
telling more forcibly than rrri3 the
length and speed of hi race. From on
to the other was the.bark scroll passed in
vain. None coulJ derpber it. Then
at the suggestion of one cf the eldcr.t, it
was taken to Le Sueur. With greet dif
