A few there were who re tained some religion, but they were, 1tta way, shunned. Gradually these people moved farther away from Kusalassa and the wild people took poeHusslon of their deserted fields. Then there were Skirmishes between the two parties, and once or twice a man waskllled, 6ut they thought nothing of that. The raiders were called Sabb&s, and at first disliked their app^llationr but afi time wore on (bcy.cMie to rejoice In "It *nd. out of spite, termed their ene mies Kusalassas. Now, the skirmishes became more frequent and bloody, till finally there occurred.* real battle. In which arrow and sword did suclL-good service that one-fourth of the Sabbas and one-third of the Kuaalasuas lost their lives, but the latter, though outnumbered,. won. The smell of attar and savory dl6hcs 'was everywhere to be. noticed. ? Before the Image of Ganesha, the chief deity of these people, stood a red ram awaiting the butcher's knife. The crowd of anxious spectators intently as the priest-butcher ap> proa cued, a silver-handled knife in his hand. Then the incensp arose moire . 3trongly, and there were -cries* to Gumtsha to accept the sacrifice. Suddenly from those about the linage there came two people, a man and a woman.
