So the captains went with Umalopo
g*aa and O&l&Ei and came to the spot
where the girl had been laid, and by hei
the man of the People of the Ax.
"All is as the Wolf, my brother, hat
told," said Umslopogaas, wuving tht
torch in his hand over the twain whe
lay dead. "Here without a doubt lief
she who was named the Lily, whom wf
came to win, and by her that fool whi
slew her, slain himself by the blow of
the Watcher. An ill sight to aee and an
ill tale for me to tell at the place Gj
Dingaan. Still, what is, is, and caanot
be altered, and this maid, who wag tht
faireet of the fair, is now none too love
ly to look on. Let as away," and ht
turned swiftly, then spoke again, saying.
"Bind up this girl in ox hides, cover
her with salt and let her be brought
with us." And they did so.
Then the captains said, "Surely it it
8o, my father; now it cannot be altered,
and Dingaan must miss his bride." Sc
said they all except that man who had
been captain of the guard when Umslop-
ogaa* and Gahui and another passed
through the archway. This man, ip
.gaid nothing, yet he was ryt wih-
out his thougriW
that he had seen three pass through ahe
archway, and not two./ It seemed to
him, moreover, that thfe kaross which
the third wore had slipped aside as she
pressed past him and that beneath it ht
had soen the shape of a woman, won
drous fair, and above it he had caughl
the glint of a woman's eye—an eye fuli
and dark, like a buck's. Moreover, this
captain noted that Bulalio called none
of the captains to swear to the body ol
the Lily maid and that he shook th«
torch to and fro as he held it over her—
he whose hand was of the steadiest. AL
of this he kept in his mind, forgetting
Now it chanced afterward on th<
homeward march, my father, that Um
slopogaas had cause to speak sharply tt
this man because he strove to rob anothei
of his share of the spoil of the Halakazi
Ue spoke sharply to him, degrading hire
from his rank and setting another ovei
him. Also ho took cattle from the mac
and gave them to him whom he would
And thereafter, though he was justly
served, the man thought inure and mort
of the third, who had passed through th(
arch of the cave and had not returned
and who seemed to him to have a fail
woman's shape, above which gleamed
the eye of a woman.
On that day, then, Umslopogaas began
his march to the kraal Umgugundhlovu,
where Dingaan sat. But before ho set
his face homeward in the presence of
tho soldiers ho asked Galazi the Wolf if
he would come back with him or if he
would gtay to bo chief of the Halakazi,
as he was by right of birth and war.
Then the Wolf laughed and answered
that he had come out to seek for venge-
ance, and not for the place of a chief;
also that there were few of the Halakazi
people left over whom he might rule -il
he would. Moreover, he added this, thaf
like twin trees they two, blood brethren,
had grown up side by side till their roots
were matted together, and that were one
of them dug up to bo planted in Swa»
soil he feared that both should wither,
or at least that he should wither who
loved but one man and certain wolves.
So Umslopogaas said no more of the
chieftainship, but began his journey.
With him he brought a great number of
cattlo to be a gift to Dingaan and a mul
titude of captives, young women and
children, for he would appease the heart
of Dingaan because he brought not hei
whom he sought—the Lily—flower of
flowers. Yet because he was cautious
and put little faith in the kindness oi
kings Umslopogaas, so soon as he reached
the borders of Zululand he sent the best
of the cattle and the fairest of the maids
and children on to the kraal of the Peo-
ple of the Ax, by Ghost mountain. And
this he who had been captain of the
guard, but now was a common soldier,
Now it chanced that on a certain
morning I, Umbova, sat in the kraal
Umgugundhlovu in attendance on Din-
gaan. when messengers came saying
that Bulalio, chief of the People of the
Ax, a 1 his impi were without, having
returned with much spoil from the slay-
ing of the Halakazi in Swi
when I heard this my hi
joy within mo, for I had

"Now at last we havs good tidings,"
he said, at once forgetting the stamping
of the fire, "and now shall my eyes be-
behold thai Lily whom my hand hae
longed pluck. Let Bulalio and hie
people eater rwiftly."
Now tor awhile there was silence;
than from far away without the high
tax* of the great place there came a

"Yes, O king, I sent a message, but

senger, gave more than the message, foi
he stabbed the Black One. Masilo had
