The little Indian maid received her

"Laughing ater in the beloved
Longfellow poem. Hiawatha, which Is
annually enacted by Indians of the
Ottawa tribe of Northern Michigan in
the little town of Wa-ya-ga-mug. just
north of Petoskey. Here annually
thousands of people from all over the
T."nited States congregate to witness the
production of the play by which this
tribe of Indians keep alive the tradi
tions sacred to its people.
The spot upon which the play is
produced is dedicated to this ceremony
and has been used for no other pur
pose during the quarter of a century
in which the play has been seen. None
of the vegetation has been touched and
nothing is allowed to interfere with the
primeval surroundings. -Only natural
scenery is used in thep lay which la

music is used as that made by the tra

her own people, almost all of whom
are of noble lineage. Only pure-blooded
Indians are allowed to participate. The

Miss Petoskey is exceptionally well

where she taught after completing her
course. From there she went West
and taught in the Indian reservations.
It was while engaged in this work
that she was recalled to take part In
the play "Hiawatha."

to be requested to take part in this

phirk Hnrt she watched over tnem
wit the greatest care.
Shv would not let them scratch for
worms or eat anything she had not
first inspected, and so Fluff and Peep
were deprived, they thought, of a great
rieni of fun. wiause all the other
chicks in the barnyard scratched for
themselves and ran about without their
"We will never get away from moth
er if we don't run away," said Fluff
ne Ha- "She watcnes us all the
time. Look at Madam Speckled Hen's
chicks: they can get worms all by
hmslvia ami when they want a
drink of watei they go alone to the
tin rfioVi hv the barn door and get it,
but our mother follows us all around
the vard. clucking at us. until every
one rails us Mother's Babies."
"I know It." said Peep; "it Is too
hiH We are. old enough to do some
thing for ourselves.'and I for one think
we will have to take matters into our
own hands and run away from mother,
where ran we eo?" asked Fluff.
- "Oh! we don't need to go far," said
rn "We can wait until we see a
rhmra to slin awav from mother, and
then run around the other side of the
hrn mid scratch for ourselves ana
see if we like it."
Now. Fluff and Peep were really
very small chicks, and while they
might have done more for themselves
in the way of looking for food, they
were still too young to be from under
their mother's watchful eye.
One day, however, when Mrs. White
Hen was running toward the dish of
mush that had just been put down for
the chicks and calling . to Peep ana
Fluff to follow, those little chicks ran
away, and when their mother turned
around they were nowhere to be seen.
"My, what a big place the world
is," said Peep, looking around.
"We are the only ones on this side
of the world," said Fluff, thinking
the world was just the barnyard and
the barn divided it.
"What shall we do?" asked Peep.
"Oh! we will Bcratch for a worm
and when we find one we will take it
to mother, instead of eating it. Just
to show her what we can do all alone."
But Peep and Fluff were too little
to do much .scratching, and after try
ing a while they were so tired they
had to give it up.
Both little chicks sat under a bush
to rest blinking their eyes, which
looked like four little beads, and
breathing very hard.
"I wonder where mother is?" asked
Peep, beginning to wish she would And
them, but Mrs. White Hen was looking
on the other side of the barnyard and
clucking and calling for her babes,
never thinking they had run away.
"Oh, look!" said Fluff, starting up
and running at something on the
"What is It?" asked Peep, running
"I do believe It Is a worm," said
Fluff, picking at something on the
"It is uch a little one." said Peep;
"I never saw one so thin before."
"It will do very well for a begin

to get back to his mother. "We can
take it home just to show we can get
one if we try."
.Fluff .picked it .up. find, then dropped 1
it. "It's awful tough," he said, look
ing at it In rather a disgusted way.
"But we must tako it home to show
mother," said Peep; "and it may be
new kind of worm, too."
So Peep and Fluff picked up their
worm, each taking an end in his bill,
and ran around the other side of the

little Bantam Rooster, and then he ran
for them and grabbbed at the worm.
Peep let go his end, but Fluff clung
to his and when Peep saw that the
bantam was getting the better of the
struggle he grabbbed at the end hi3
brother was holding and pulled with
all his little might .
First the bantam would pull Fluff
and Peep and then the chicks -would
pull the Bantam Rooster, and then

fast as her two legs would carry her
Snap went something and something
hit Peep right on the head, and Ban
tam Rooster felt a sharp slap on his
head, too, and then over went the
chicks on their backs In one direction
and Bantam Rooster went in another
direction and rolled over.
But they all jumped up again quick
er than you can think and stood look
ing at each other. Peep holding some
thing in his bill and Bantam Rooster
holding something in his.
"What is the matter and where have
you two chicks been?" asked Mrs.
"We found a new worm," explained
Fluff, "and Bantam Rooster tried to
take it from us and then he pushed
Mrs. White Hen pecked at the some
thing Peep still held in his mouth.
while Bantam Rooster ran under a
bush with his prize.
"You silly chicks!" said their mother,
"this isn t a worm at all; it is a piece
of elastic! You stay close to me or
you will eat something that will stick
in your throats and that will be the
end of you. You will never grow up
if you are not careful."
Bantam Rooster came out from un
der the bush looking very foolish, but
Peep ran after him.
Bantam Rooster, he called, we
fooled you, didn't we? You thought It
was a worm, but we knew all the time
it was a piece of elastic.
"It would never do for him to think
we didn't know the difference." Peep
told Fluff; "he would tell it all. over
the barnyard and everybody would
make fun of us."
"I think we better stick to mother
a while longer, said Fluff; "but we
will try to learn how to scratch for
worms, so that next time we run away
we can bring back a real one.
