When Ish looked up, he saw a young man standing in {rent of him. The young man wore a neat enough pair of blue jeans with copper rivets shinning brightly, and yet over his shoulders he wore a tawny hide with sharp claws dangling from it. In his hand he held a strong bow, and over his shoulder was a quiver with the feathered ends of arrows sticking from it. Ish blinked, for in his old eyes the sunshine was strong. ' "Who are you?" said Ish. The young man answered respectfully, "I am Jack, Ish, as indeed you yourself well know." The way he said "Ish" did not indicate that he was trying to be unduly familiar with an old man, thus calling him by a nickname, but rather it carried something of great respect and even of awe, and as if "Ish" stood for much more than merely the name of an old man. But Ish himself was confused, and he squinted, peering more carefully, because at short distances he no longer saw clearly. But he was sure that Jack should have dark hair, or perhaps turned somewhat gray by now, and this one who called himself Jack had long wavy yellow hair. "You should not make jokes with an old man," said Ish. "Jack is my oldest son, and I would recognize him. He has dark hair, and he is older than you." ' The young man laughed politely and said, "You, are talking, Ish, of my grandfather, as indeed you yourself well know." Again the 'way in which he said "Ish" had a certain strange sound to it, and now Ish noticed also the strangeness of his other repeated wnrrls, "as Indeed you , yourself well know." • "Art you at the Tint Onei?" Ish asked. "Or of the Others?" "Of the First Ones," he said. nPHEN, as Ish still looked, he was -"- puzzled that the young man, who was certainly not a child, was carrying a bow instead of a rifle. Why do you not have a rifle?" he asked. . Bines are good playthings'." the young man said, and he laughed, a little scornfully perhaps. "You cannot be sure of a rifle, as indeed you yourself, Ish, well know. Sometimes the rifle works, and it makes the big noise, but other times you pull the trigger, .and it only goes 'click'." He snapped his fingers. "So you cannot use the rifles for real hunting, although the older men say that this was not so in the long past years. But now we use the arrow because it is sure, and never refuses to fly and besides," here the young man held himself proudly, "it is a matter of strength and skiL to shoot With the bow—anyone, they say, could shoot with a rifle, as you yourself, Ish, well know." The young- man took an arrow from the quiver. Ish looked at the arrow and felt the weight of it. This was no plaything for a child. The shaft was nearly a yard long, split cleanly from a billet of flawless straight- grained .wood, and then rounded and smoothed. Then he observed the arrowhead, again more by feel than by sight. The arrowhead was sharp both at the point and along the edges It had the bumpy yet slick feel which told him that it was of hammered metal. "What ii that made of?" he "It is from one of the little round things. They have faces on them. The old men have a name for them, but I dp not remcmbei exactly. It it something like 'corns'." The young man paused, as if to b< told th* right word, but when le had no reply, he went on again. "We find these little round hings in the old buildings. Often here are many of them in the joxes and drawers. Sometimes hey are rolled up together in undies like short round sticks, but heavier than sticks. Some are red and some are white, like this one, and there are two kinds of the white. The one kind of white—the one that has the picture of the hump backed bull—we do not use hose because they are harder to pound." Ish thought that he understood. "And this white one here?" he asked. "Was there a relief—a pic- :ure—on this one?" The young man took the arrow from Ish, and looked at it. "They all have pictures," he said. "But iSvas looking to see i I could still make out what picture was on this one. It has not :juite all gone because of the hammering. This was one of the littlest ones, and it had the picture of the woman with the wings 'rowing out of her head. Some of them have pictures of hawks—but not'real hawks." The young man was talking happily. "Others have men; at least, they look like men one with a beard, and one with long hair hanging behind him and another with a strong looking face, without a beard and with short hair, and heavy jawed." "And who do you think were all these men?" HE young man glanced both ways, as if a little nervous. •.'These—yes! These, we think—ai you yourself, Ish, well know— these were the Old Ones that were before our Old Ones!" When Jhere was no thunder from heaven and when the young man could see that Ish was not displeased, he went on: "Perhaps the woman with the wings growing from her head sprang from the marriage of a hawk and a woman. But they do not seem to mind our taking their pictures and hammering them up for arrowheads. Perhaps they are too groat to cart about Ittttt things, or perhaps they did their work a long time ago and have now grown old and weak."
