Many braves set forth in an attempt to kill the creature. But they were not successful and very few returned. No one knew where the Piansso would next appear or who might be the next victim. At last even the Young chieftain tried to kill the animal. For a year the chieftain traveled hack and forth trying to get a chance to destroy the monster but the Piansso could not be killed. At last the young Chief became dis- couraged and returned to his home there he married a beautiful Indian week. He says that he is preparing l to put in about three hundred and ififty acres of spring crop.

Then a did you stop to realize that it is the liquor that makes the old aged de- pendent? It's alright to prate about the good the money will do these people now that they~ are old. Bu~ let's give a little thought to the harm that the liquor will do them . while they are young. Liquor co~ts the young people of today many many times the amount that it gives to them after they are on charity. Stop the sale of liquor and you re- duce the number on charity. Your column is usually fair but you surely turned to the left that time. Do you drink and had you had one?" We do not, and never had one %Sat day or any other day. The item brought many, many replies, some terrible thing happened. One day, as White Bird and his best friend knelt at the spring to drink, ,*he Piansso appeared and seizing White Bird's chum, carried him away. White Bird was horror stricken. Ia that moment he seemed to grow old. er and taller and to withdraw with- in himself. He turned and walked away saying, "I am going to fast and shall not return for a year and a day." For a year White Bird fasted. Again and again he called to t~e Great Spirit for aid but the Great Spirit did not seem to hear him. At the end of the year he was so weak he could not stand and he thought he was dying. Once more he cried on Jesus and fully believed to his soul's salvation.
