For several days they had goue

seemed strange, lor the red men
had alw ays before come out tn meet
the white men. They had Invu
very frieudly to the white people.
Hut now not one was to lie seen.
They seemed to have left the coun

liaus watching them from a lull
some distance away. The white
men did not fear them, but they
mid not understand why they
were watched by the Indians. They
did not know that the savages had
.lined a plot to kill all the white
Hople, and were ut this very time
on the warpath.
After linishitig thvirdinner, Law-
sou and his men went farther into
the wihhIs. They wauled to see the
tiiuls-r lands higher up the river.
I or some time they marched on

were follow ing them. Presently it

piite sure that we are going to
have trouble, and if we get out
alive it w ill lie a kindness of rrov
ideiice. I think they intend to at
la't us then prepare to receive
them, said the baron. "I, for one
do not want to lie butchered with
out doing some damage in return."
As it was nearly night, the party
halted and made a lire to warm
their fiKMl, There were only nil or
eight of them, and it seemed nse
less to resist if the redskins should
make an attack. They felt quite
sure that the attack would come,
but they were in doubt a to how
thev should act. liruflenreid said
that he was going to sell his life as
dearly as he could. I-iw sou said
that he was uo fighter, but would
defend himself to the last.
Soon the attack came. About
sixty of the savages rushed ntnin
them with shouts and yells. The
white men fought the liest they
could, but the Indians ran over
them. Is'iit them to the ground, and
Isiuiid their hands and ariua. Then
thev were forced to travel all night
with these Indians to a town some
miles inland, l'lsitsore and weary
they reached the town early next
day, and were delivered to the
chief in charge.
That afternoon a council of all
the chiefs in the tribe wait called to
decide what should bo done with
the prisoners. Lawson, tint (Ten

into the assembly and made to
stand in the center with all (he
chiefs seated around them. Tbe

Lawson told (hem that be mess
nred the land so that be could
draw a map of the country. Then
he showed them one of tbe maps
that he bad drawn. They were
much pleased with tbe map, and
seemed to be satisfied with the ex
planation. Finally they decided
that tbe prisoners should be re
leased and sent home the next day.
Ho Lawson and bis friends slept
soundly that night, for tbey fell
that they wonld be allowed to gn
back home. But a far difletent
fate a aited them.
Oa the aeit day, Instrad of being
had known some time before, and
with whom be bad bad some
trouble. Tbis Indian waa a bitter
eueiny of the white people, and
spoke against turning them loose.
"PaWfaeea bare taken away our
lands," be aaid, "and now tbey are

1 his sieech made a deep Itnpree
siou on the savages. Lawson and
his comnaulous were beaten wita
clulst and condemned to death. 1
The council broke np to carry out
the sentence. They were roughly
dragged to the place of execution.
Would vou put a king to
leath t" asked the baron. "Much
thing is nerer done. It would
grieve the Great Spirit."
"A bo is kingr' questioned, tne
Indians, almost all at once.
I am king of fifteen hundred
palefaces, w bo are now looking for
me," answered the haron. "tbey
would nevr forgive their dark-
skiu brothers if their king were
put to death.
The chiefs talked together Tcry
rapidly aud exritedly. There ap
peared to tie two partiea among
them one tor executiou and tbe
it her for turning the priaouers
loose. Finally a compromise was
greed upon, aud the great chief
came to the wmte men ami saiu
ith much earnestness :
'Talefacea, you are in our hands.
We can do with you what seems
best to us. Nothing can save you
from our power. We shall burn
the paleface who has been selling
our laud, but the king we shall
hold as a prisoner to keep bis peo
ple from making war on us. Now
you have heard our decision."
The baron was led away to anoth
er part of the village, aud Lawson
was stripped of bis clothing. 1 bey
then made hundreds of sharietird
light w ood splinters, keeu at both
ends. Thev stuck these spliuters
into the tlesh of poor Lawson and
danced around him w ith delight.
Theu these human devils Isiund
iwson to a stake. They dauced
the war dauce around him aud
sang their dreadful songs. Present
ly they set tare to the splinters ami
burned him to death.
The barou could hear what was
going ou, anil Knew- una tne In
dians were tormenting their prisoner.
Soon the savages came to him
and told him that they bad killed
laiwson. tiraflcnreid was afraid
thev had come for him to share the
same fate. Hut the chief said that
he would lie held as a prisoner, aud
that his life would lie spared, driif
fetirenl s necro man was Iu the
same room, and the Indians looked
at him as if to say, "It is your turn
"King of the paleface," said
the chief, "you ueed not be afraid,
for we will uot kill you. but in
il in n braves want more song and
more dance tonight. Your black
man must be burned."
This waa dreadful news to the
barou, for he was Very fond of the
faithful negro, who had been with
him so long and bail served him so
well. He tried to change tbe red
skins from their purpose.
"This poor fellow," the baron
said, "has never done any barm to
the Iudlans. He came because 1
did. Mpare him and you shall be
"He give Indians fun," grunted
As uight came on more Indians
came iuto the Tillage. They made
large fires here and there. Home-
times they would yell like madmen,
and the blood of the white man ran
cold aud the poor negro was almost
dead with fear. Finally they came
and seined the negro aud carried
him off. He struggled with bis
enemies, but they dragged Dim
along to the place of execution.
Thf re they bound him to the stake.
Theu they piled up piece of ury
pine wood around bltu and set
them on fire. Then they danced
around the sufferer until death re
lieved him of his agony.
Such things are dreadful to re
late, but tbey happened lone; ago.
before the white people had come
in mirutiera large enough to pre
veut it. It waa against such sav
ages that the settlers bad to con
tend, to make tbis country tbe
home of the white men.
The savages held the baron for s
long time as their prisoner. 1 bey
let him go when be promised tbem
that be wonld not make war upon
them. He kept tbe promise, and
would not join in the war which
the white people made upon the
Indians the next year.
