He invokes the aid of the Medicine Man and wise women, and as a sign of his supernatural power they give him a rope of eagle down and also a box in which to hold her soul. In the ceremony they remind him of the tabu; not to look back, not to fall asleep, and not to touch her soul. Just before dawn on the third day, his vigil is ended as he sees her soul rise from the grave. Despite her entreaties to do otherwise, he follows her westward to the afterworld. Arriving at the edge of the horizon, he is confronted by the guardians who keep watch over the entrance to the spirit land. On the other side, Mon-Ka-Ta sees his wife surrounded by spirits who had gathered for the round dance, and tells the guardian that he wants to be with his wife or take her back home again. His wife comes and they sit and talk. The other spirits resent the presence of a living person and warn her that she cannot stay longer. She returns to the spiri'ts and asks her husband to join their dancing. He, however, is so weary that he falls asleep. The next time the spirit of his wife comes to him, she appears more human and, unable to overcome his longing, MonKa-T a touches her, whereupon she falls in his arms. In his great sorrow at his failure he finds she has become a log. Wednesday, May 27th-Miss Miss Miss Mn. Miss Mary Pape Claire Mugan Elaine Melhuish Wm.
