Yes, he could justify the act on the highest of all grounds—the safety and happiness of The Tribe. By the one sharp act, evil and ugly though seemed, he and the others had prevented — so at least they would hope — all that chain ot ugliness and evil which ran on, once started, through the years. had prevention. "We are close to panic!" thought Ish, and then the next morning le himself awoke — depressed, fe- /~\NE day— more than a week had ^ passed, and the memory of Charlie and the oak tree had faded somewhat — Ish and Joey came home to find Em waiting for them, and Ish knew immediately that something had happened. "What's the matter?" he asked quickly. In the afternoon, leaning over Joey's bed, Ish felt himself col- apsing. With his last effort he managed to get to his own bed, and fall upon it. Hours later, it seemed, he came to himself. Em was looking down at him. She had managed to undress him and get him into bed. The dark, wide-set eyes looked calmly at him. Oh, Mother of Na- XXX HEY shoveled the dirt back into the grave beneath the oak tree. They dragged branches and carried heavy stones to cover it, so that what lay beneath would bi snfc from burrowing coyotes. After that, they all walked back, the long mile. They kept close together, as .needing one another's support. Ish walked among them, swinging his ' hammer in his »'ight hand. He hac had no use for the hammer, bul still he had taken it along. Now . the downward pull of its weight seemed to keep him firmly on the ground. He had held it in his hand, like a barlge of office, when they had gone to find Charlie and, flanked by the hoys' leveled rifles, Ish had said the words and heard Charlie begin to curse obscenely. Ish did not like to think of what had happened, and when he did think of it, he felt a little sick, physically. Perhaps, if it had not been for George's solidity, they could never have gone through with it. George, with his practical skill, had knotted the rope and set up the ladder. No, he would never like to think of it in the future, either. He was sure of that also. This was an end, and this was also a beginning. It was the end of those 21 years when they had lived, now he thought, in a kind of idyllic slate, ns it might have been in J ; some old Garden of Eden. They had known their troubles; they had even known death. But it liad been simple, as he looked back toward it. This was an end; yet, it was also a beginning, and a long road lay ahead. In the past, there had been only a little group of people, scarcely more than an overgrown family. In the future, there would be the'State. The State—il should bo o kind _ _ , .
