THE LEGEND OF THE SUN
AND THE RAIN
"TVTANY, many years ago so mnny
'" years that no man Is able to count
them t lie god of the sun nnd tho god
of tho rain had n quarrel. Each In
sisted that the other was lazy and
did no work, and each was Jealous of
the other and declared that his own
Importance was great.
So they quarreled and quarreled
these two gods until finally their
argument reached the ears of Maul
ton himself, who called them unto
him. When the Manltou heard the
cause of their argument he was
angered, nnd ho decided that an ex
ample should bo made of the two
gods, In order that they should know
their true worth to the world nnd to
the people who dwelt there.
So ho caused n test to be made and
he called the two gods to him. First
lie turned to the god of rain uYid to
him he said:
"you have said that your Impor
tance Is overwhelming, nnd that you
are greater and more powerful than
the sun and so this test will bo made.
And for six months I will set aside
n certain section of land nnd thcro
you will dwell nnd do all In your
power to make the grass green and
the crops grow. The sun shall not
come near you, or disturb you, until
the six months lire up, and ut tho end
of that time the sun god shall huro
his turn, and when the test Is com
pleted then shall we determine which
Is the greater and which Is tho most
So the Manltou designated n cer
tain bit of land and there the rain
god went to dwell, and each day ho
brought gentle showers to nourish tho
earth and the (lowers and the trees
and the grass.
But finally tho water rose and cov
ered the ground nnd there was no sun
nnd no warmth to dry up tho earth,
and the flowers began to wither and
the trees to die. And the tribes who
dwelt In the land were unable to live
there and they had to move to other
parts and the entire land became an
The rain god, seeing the desolation,
became sad and repentant and went
to the Manltou and asked that tho
sun be permitted to come In. But tho
Manltou declared that tho test was
not yet through and so he sent tho
sun to the spot uud ordered the rain
god away while the sun made tho
With tho coming of tho sunshine the
water disappeared, and once more tho
trees nnd the grass imd the flowers
flourished and tho trinesiuen emtio
back again to their homes and every
one was happy.
But as the days went on nnd there
was no rain the trees and the grass
turned brown and died; the flowers
disappeared and even the beasts and
the birds were unable to live and
died of thirst. And the lnnd beenmo
n desert nnd the tribesmen onco more
were forced to leave nnd seek other
spots whre there was still food and
When the desert hart been formed
nnd tho flowers nnd the trees Iind dis
appeared, then tho Mnnitou called tho
two gods before him and to them ho
"O gods of rain nnd nun, tho test
has been made, and now you know
the strength which Is yours. You who
nro gods are only servants of the
world and together you bring happi
ness and content and prosperity. But
alone you are as nothing, for In this
world each must do his part to aid
tins other and there Is none who Is
greater and none who Is lesser than
In order thnt you may remember
this lesson I shall leave the desert
as It Is, barren and dosolati. a warn
ing to all of you. And when next you
feel that you are all-Important, or
that your work Is bettor or greater
than that of your brother gods, look
you to thu desert In all Its desolute
nois and remember that only by work
ing together can we bring happiness
and prosperity to our red children
who seek our protection."
The two gods, repentant, went their
way and worked together, the ono
bringing tho warmth and beauty of
the sunshine; the other the gentle
coolness and refreshment of the rnln.
From thnt day to this have they
vi?ked together but tho desert Is
itlll there as a rebuke from the Manl
tou to his lesser children and If you
doubt this story go forth into tho
southlands and see for yourself.
Note. This beautiful llttlo legend
Is hnnded down by the Coinnnchcs, and
gives their version of tho creation of
tho desert. It exists lu a slightly dif
ferent version, with tho Utes and
other related tribes.
