, As the legend goes, a young Indian
loved the daughter of his chief, whose
tribe was powerful, and whose p owess
wan the one great theme of aboriginal
sang ana siory. xue young xuuiu
wasvone of the , bravest of gall braves
and theBero of many battles. He was
beloved beyond the chief ot the tribe,
and his popularify had aroused "a feel-
ingiof bitter enmity toward him in the
breast of the Indian ruler. But the
dau;hltr 1oved the young warrior, and
so deeply were the affections of the
people fixed upou their idol that th
chief dared not do that which he fain
would have done orderHhe remoyal
or his daughter's 'lover, and his riyal
in the affections of the tribe, by the
tomahawk. The young Indian had
sued fur the chief's sanction of his
unioa wrtii the princess, again and

again, Dui iu tain, jpui.nis popuianiy
grew greater i.i
added sooie deed of courage to ther
coxd of his achievements, until the
caief's hatred ot him was merged into
alarm; for he feared the day was rapid-
lv tiuroachibc ' when his own great
naam would be held as naught, as com-
with that or the youth. That
ed the chief saw plainly, and; one day
the crafty ruler bethought him of a
plan whereby that end might not only
pe secured"; but the destruction of his
rival be encumpASHed as well. tHe sent
for the youug warrior, and caused, the
loyer's heart to leap with joy by telling
him that paternal prido had relented,
and that the great chief would consent
to the union of his daughter to his hum
ble subject. But he iustantly added the
condition tbat tho union could not be
consummated until the lover should lay
at the door of his 'chief's wigwam the
body of a white deer. Until this was
done, the subject of the marriage must
never again be mentioned, under pain
of death, or banishment. In this con
dition tfie Indian lover read his doom,
for, said he, was it not easier to pierce
the huuter's moon with an arrow than
to bury a fatal shaft in the sacred white
dter's heart? And so he hovered no

Yet his mortal heart had gone forth to
the daughter of. his chief, who the
young brave loved. She had repulsed
his suit, and her father had rebuked the
Socerer for his presumption. And the
magician had swnru revenge.
At the second conference tne cniei
repeated the condition upon which he
would give hia daughter to the young
and beckoned the sorcerer to
his side. The socerer placed in the lov
er's hand an arrow, made from the long,
straight stock of the swamp flag, and
tipped with a barb or silver ! his, he
said,- speeding from the bow of one
courageous to single out a white deer lor
his aim,' would prevail Against the
charm that made all other shafts fall
harmless, and find the sacred hart as
vulnerable as any in the herd. ; The
lover placed the arrow in hs quiver. If
it were greater than the charm that
guarded the life of the white deer, he
said, he would lay the prize at the feet
ot his chief and claim his royal bride.
High on the hills overlooking the
valley of the Lara waxen is a lake as
clear as crystal. In the Indian days,
as now, it was a favorite resort for deer.
The Indian lover launched his birch
canoe on the lake, and anxiously await-
ed the coming of the deer at nightfall,
noping that among inem migut oe one

from the warrior's bow. It gleamed
for an instant in the air, and then sank
into the white deer's heart. With a
err' that resounded far among the hills
the white deer fell dead, and its com
panions fled in terror to the woods.
While the death cry was still echoing
about the lake, the young brave's arms
fell powerless by hi side. His tongue
refused to give voice to the cry that
came to nia lips, ivery memoer was
powerless. He could not move a mus
