There was a long talk then, but Ish did not pay much attention. H« gathered, in general that thi whole tribe was moving toward • place Where there were name lakes and where the flr« had not rwept. It was good country, according to what the newcomer said. The three young men who had been -with Ish were inclined to argue about this, because they had not been consulted in the decision, But the other explained that the whole question had been up before the assembly of The Tribe, and so decided. The three yielded, granting that what The Tribe had decided was binding upon them also. Though this was doubtless a small incident, Ish found it particularly gratifying. That was something which he had taught them long ago. After^that, Ish was not sure of anything again until at last he realized that he was sitting on something hard and leaning against something hard, and that Jis feet were very cold. Next he knew that somebody was channg I his hands, and then slowly he came into consciousness. He found that he was sitting on the pavement at the edge of the bridge, propped against the rail- The first thing that he really ,^ ' -noticed was his hammer on pavement in front of him, handle pointing stiffly in the air. On each side of him, a young man was chafing one of his hands, as if trying to get some blood back hito them. The other two young me.n were near also, and they all seemed greatly disturbed. * Ish realized that his feet and even his legs were cold, or perhaps they had really lost all feeling in a kind o( cold that might be called denlhly. He knew then, 'his mind again becoming clearer, Uiat he had not been merely passing through one of his lapses of old age but that he must actually have suffered some kind of seizure—a stroke or a heart attack—and that the others were frightened. E saw Jack moving his lips as if he were talking, and yet no noise. A. strange thing to do! Thefcps moved more and more vigorously, as if Jack were shouting. Then Ish realized that he himself was not hearing. This thought did not pain him, but rather pleased him, because he knew that he would now not have the world press in upon him, as it must always upon a man who can hear. •* The others began talking, that is, moving their lips in the same way, and Ish saw that they were trying definitely, even desperately, to tell him romething. He shook his head, puzzled. Then, by thinking hard and by watching their gestures, he thought that they wanted him to indicate one of them to whom the hammer should be given. The hammer had been Ish's own for a long time, and no one had ever suggested that he should give it to anyone else, but he did not care, and besides he wished them to stop pinching him. He could still move his arms, and so with a gesture he indicated that the young man called Jack should have the hammer. Jack picked up the hammer, and stood with it dangling from his right hand. The other three then drew off a little, and Ish felt within himself 1 * strange pang of sorrow for the young man to whom the hammer h»d descended. But ai least they all seemed to 36 relieved, now that th* inheritance ot the hammer was settled, and they did not bother Ish any . looked now at the others, although U»r< waj a little mist be- fore his eyes and he could not see very well. Yet he noticed the two doga lying quietly, and th* four young men—three of them apart from the other one now—who squatted on the bridge in * half circle around him, watching. They were very young in age, at least by comparison with him, and in the cycle off mankind they were many thousands of years younger than he. He was the last of the old; they were the first of the new. But whether the new would follow the course which the old had followed, that he did not know, and now at last he was almost certain that he did not even desire that the cycle should be repeated. He suddenly thought of all that had gone to build civilization —of slavery and conquest and war and oppression. But now he, looked beyond the young men, toward the bridge itself. Yet though the bridge might last still for many years, the rust would eat deeper and deeper. The earthquake would shake the foundations, and then on some stormy day a span would go down. Like the man, so the creation of man would not last forever. • • . • VET as a weary and dying old / man, he needed something toward which he could look and from which he could expect no change. He was cold now around the waist, and his fingers were numb. His sight was fading. He fixed his eyes on the distant hills. He had tried very hard. He had struggled. He had looked to the past and to the future. What did it matter? What had he accomplished? Now certainly it made no difference. He would rest, and he would return to the hills. And they—in comparison at least with the passing of man's generations- remained without changing. Then, though hi* sight was now very dim, he looked again at the young men. "They will commit me to the earth," h« thought. "Yet I also commit them to the earth. There is nothing else by which men live. Men fa and come, but earth abides."
