CHAPTER XI.—Cent:rued.
Yet huge and menacing as he stool,
the figure opposed to him was still
more formidable. Juan the moxo over-
; opped him by nearly half a he3d, and
j vas as broad cr broader in the shoul-
•er. His body, a dull brown in
color, showed smoother than that of
his enemy, the muscles not having
jeen brought out by unremitted exer-
cise. Yet under that bulk of flesh
there lay no man might tell how much
of awful rijor. The loop of the war
club could not slip over his great
.land. He caught it in his fingers and
made the weapon hum about hi3 head,
as some forgotten ancestor of his. tall
>>2 v_; „ or for. tea cave dvre!'.?r, may
nava done before the Spaniard came.
The weapon feemed to him like a toy,
and he cast his eye about for another
more commensurate with his strength,
but, seeing none, fcrgot the wart, and
in the sheer ignorance of fear which
made his bravery, began the fight as
though altogether careUss of its end.
White Caif was before his people,
whose chief he wa.- by reason of his
personal prowess, and with all the
vanity cf his kind he exulted in this
opportunity of displaying his Stress
for hii place. Yet in him natural
bravery bad a qualifying caution,
which was here obviously weil jus-
tified. The Mexican made cirect as-
sault, rushing on with battle axe pois-
?d as though to end it all with one
immediate blow. With guard and
parry he was mere careless than the
wild bull of the Plains, which meets
his foe in direct impetuous assault.
White Calf was not so rash. He step-
ped quickly back from the attack, and
as the mozo plunged forward from tho
Impulse of his unchecked blow, the
Indian swept sternly at him with the
full force of his extended arm. The
caution of the chief and the luck of a
little thing, each in turn prevented the
ending of the combat at its outset.
Half falling onward, the Mexican slip-
ped upon a tuft of the hard gray grass
• Taicel confidence, and edged closer
in. He feinted and sprang from side
to side, but gained little ground. Hi
people saw his purpose, and munaur.-
! cf arrro'c' urged him on. It seemei
that In a moment he must land the
fatal blow upon hi3 apparently half
stupefied oppor at. He sought final!;.
to deliver this blow, but the eJTort wa
near to proTirg his ruin. Just as he
swung forward, the giant, with a sui
Jen contraction of all his vast frame
sprang out and brought down hi3 war
axe in a sheer downward blow a', half
arm's length. White Calf with light
aing sp«. J changcd his own attacl
into defense, sweeping up hi3 weapor
to defend hi3 head. On the Instant hi
am was beaten down. It fell help!?.-
I at his side, tho axe only hanglrg tc
, 'tis hand by mean3 of the loop passe
around tho wrict. A spa?m cf pair
crossed his face at the racking agoaj
in the nerves cf his arm, yet he re
tained energy enough to spring baci
| and still he stood erect. A cry of di?
may burst from the followers of tht
: red champion ar.d a keen yell frorr
the whites, unable to suppress their
, exultation. Yet at the next moment
' the partisans of either had becom
silent; for, though the Indian seeme
disabled, the mczo stood before hirr
i weaponless. The tough, slender rod
which made the handle cf his war axe
had mapped lil.o a l ipestem under the
?orce of his blow, and even the raw-
hide covering was torn loose from th'
head of stone, which lay, with a foot
of the br;.laen hardwood staff still
attached, upon the ground between
the two antagorists.
Juan cast away the bit of rod stiil
in his hand and rushed forward
against his enemy, seeking to throttle
. him with his naked fingers. White
Caif, quicker-witted of the two, slun-:
the thong of his war club free from
his crippled right hand. and. grasping
the weapon in his left, still made play
with It about his head. The giant
none the less rushed in, receiving upon
■{, \V' v
The Figure Opposed to Him Was Still More Formidable.
and went down headlong. A murmur
arose from the Indians, who thought
at first that their leader's blow had
proved tatal. A sharp call from
Curly seemed to bring the Mexican to
his feet at once. The Indian lost the
half moment which was his own.
Again the two engaged, White Calf
now seeking to disconcert the Mexi-
can, whom he discovered to be less
r.gile than himself. Darting in and
out. jumping rapidly from side to side,
and uttering the while the sharp stac-
cato of his war call, he passed about
(he Mexican, half circling and return-
ing, his eye fixed straight upon the
other's, and his war club again and
again hurtling dangerously close to his
opponent's head. One shade more of
courage, one touch more of the daring
necessary to carry him a single foot
closer in, nnd the victory had been
with him, for no human skull could
nave withstood the Impact of a pound
of flint impelled by an arm so power-
Juan the mozo stood almost motion-
less, his own club half raised, the
great muscles of his arm now showing
under the brown skin as he clinched
hard the tiny stem of the weapon. His
readiness for offense was the one de-
fense that he offered. His brute cour-
age had no mental side. The whist-
ling of this threatening weapon was
unheeded, since it did not hurt him.
He glared In fury at the Indian, but
always his arm remained half raised,
his foot but shifted, side stepping and
turning only enough to keep him with
front toward his antagonist. The des-
perate, eager waiting of his attitude
was awful. The whisper of the wines
of death was on the air about this
place. The faces of the white men
witnessing tho spectacle were drawn
and haggard.
White Calf pursued his rapid tactics
for some momerts, and a dozen times
sped a blow which still fell short. He
his shoulder a blow from the left
hand of the Indian which cut the flesh
clean to the collar bone, in a great
bruised wound which was covered at
once with a spurt of blood. The next
instant the two fell together, the In-
dian beneath his mighty foe, and the
two writhing in a horrible embrace.
The hands of the mozo gripped the
Indian's throat, and he uttered a rasp-
'ng. savage roar of triumph, more
beastlike than human, as he settled
nard upon the chest of the enemy
whose life he was choking out. Again
rose the savage cries of the onloekers.
Not even yet had the end come.
There was a heavy struggle, a sharp
cry of pain, and Juan sprang back,
pressing his hand against his side,
where blood came from between his
fingers. The Indian had worked his
left hand to the sheath of his knife,
and stabbed the giant who had so
nearly overcome him. Staggering, the
two again stood erect, and yet again
came the cries from the many red
men ar.d the little band cf whites who
were witnessing this babarous and
brutal struggle. Bows were bending
amorg the blankets, but the four rifle -
now pointed steadily out. One move-
ment would have meant death to many
but that movement was forestalled in
the stiil more rapid happenings of the
unfinished combat. For one-ha'f sec-
ond the two fighting men stood apart,
the one stunned at his unexpected
wound, the other startled that the
wound had not proved fatal. Seeing
his antagonist still on his feet, White
Caif for the first time lost courage.
With the knife still held in his left
hand, he hesitated whether to join
again the encounter, or himself to
guard against the attack of a foe so
proof to irjury. He half turned and
gave back for a pace.
The man pursued by a fee looks
ibout him quickly for that weapon
nearest to his own hand. The dread
if steel drove Juan to bethink hln-
-elf of a weipon. Ho saw It at his
eet, and agni.i he roared like an an:'ry

What the Hrnd Had to Do.
In this wide, re., world of the West
"here were but f \v artificial needs
nd the differentiation of industries
vas alike impossible and urdesired.
Cach man was tls own c^ok, his own
ailer, his own mechanic in the slmr-ie
vays demanded by the surrounding
ibeut him. Each man was as good as
is neightcr. f r his neighbor as well
ts himself perforce practced a half-
lozen crafts and suffered therefrom
neither la his own esteem nor that of
hose about him. The specialists of
-.rade, of artisanship, of art, were not
yet demanded in this environment
.here each man in truth "took care of
hlm'-elf," and had small dependence
ipon others.
Ir. ail the arts of making ore's self
'omfortable in a womanless and hence
i homeless land bcth Franklin and
iattersleigh, experienced campaigners
as they were, found themselves much
lided by the counsel of Curly, the sel-
ellant native of the soil who was
•ranklln's first acquaintance in that
land. It was Curly who helped them
vith their houses and in their house-
old supplies. It was he told them
tow and then cf a new region where
he crop of bones was not yet fully
gathered. It was he who showed them
:ow to care for the little number of
animals wbich they had begun to gath-
t about them; and who in short,
^ave to them full knowledge of tho
best ways of exacting a subsistence
rorm the laid which they had invaded.
One morning Franklin, thinking to
have an additional buffalo robe for the 1
coming winter, and knowing no man-
ner in which he could get the hide
tanned except through his own efforts,'
- et about to do this work for him-
•elf, ignorant of the extent of his
-.ask, nnd relying upon Curly for ad-
vice as to the procedure.
"You might git Juan to tan you nil ;
one or two," said Curly. "He kin tan
z good ez ary Injun ever was."
"But, by the way, Curly," said I
Franklin, "how is Juan thi3 morning? j
>Ve haven't heard from him for a day
or two."
"Oh him?" said Curly. "Why, he's
all right. He's just been layin' 'round ;
a little, like a dog that's been cut up 1
3o:-ie in a wolf fight, but he's all right
-ow. Shoulder's about well, an' fer
the knife-cut, it never did amount to
nothin' much. You can't hurt a
Ireaser much, not noways such a big
one as Juan. But didn't he git action
n that little difficulty o' his'n? You
could a-broke the whole Cheyenne
tribe, if you could a-got a-bettin' with
em before that fight."
"Odds was a hundred to one against
us. shure," said Battersleigh, seating
himself in the doorway of the shack.
"Ye may call the big boy loco, or wliat-
iver ye like, but it's grateful we may
be to him. An' tell me. if ye can, why
didn't the ha.vthins pile in an' polish
us all off, after their chief lost his
"Them Cheyennes was plenty hot at
us fer comin' in on their huntin'
grounds," said Curly, "an' they shore
had it in fer us. I don't think it was
what their chief said to them that
kep' them back from jumpin' us, ater
the fight was over. It's a blame sight
more likely that they got a sort o'
notion in their heads that Juan was
bad medicine. If they get it in their
minds that a man is loco, an' per-
fected by spirits, an' that sort o' thing,
they won't fight him, fer fear o' get-
:in' tho worst of it. That's about why
we got out of there, I reckin."
"I'm sorry for them," said Franklin,
thoughtfully. "Just think, we are tak-
,!ig away from these people everything
in the world they had. They were
:appy as we are—happier, perhaps—
and they had their little ambitions, |
the same as we have ours. We are
lriving them away from their old
country, all over the West, urtil it is
ard to see where they can get a foot-
hold to call their own. We drive them
and fight them and kill them, and
rhen—well, then we forget them."
"You're a funny sort o' feller. Cap "
-aid Curly, "but if you're goin' to tan
that hide you'd better finish peggin' it
out, an' git to work on it."
