PART TWO In the cold gray hours of the early morning a small canoe shot out into the lake. In the canoe sat two people, male and femalo. The eyes of the one were lixed on the course ahead, those of tho other on an intangible some- thing in the bosom of the deep, blue waves. Silent'y and mysteriously, hour after hour, they glided on. Like a hunted fugitive, the man paddled, not even halting for breakfast or dinner. The day waned. Soon darkness fell over tho great silent lanri, and with the darkness they steered for the shore. Half an hour later, the blue smoke of their camp-fire curled heavenward through the dying branches of the trees. That night the tearful eyes of Ilun- ning Deer peered long and hungrily toward the west. For hours; slio search- ed the unfathomable deeps. the moon arose, wan and watery above the mountain peaks. And with a cold, hankering cry she sank, to. th.e cold earth. PART; THREE Spring BroW ekrly'ln the west the fallowing year. signs of reviving life were apparent. The sap began to rise in the trcfes. At their feet the tender, green grass pushed througk the spongy sod, and in the midst' of the 'melting snow little wild flowero bravely issued forth into the new world. Bill Fetnio felt the ozone In the spring air. He began to breath deeper and to take walks up the valleys, pick and shovel in hand. He worked tirelessly. He and his Indian for he had taken her as his wintered-In- a Aagout in the side of Crow's Nest Mountain. The season had been hard. .But Fornie and Run- ning Deer spent the long days quite pleasantly. She quite enjoyed helping the prospector prepare for the spring work. And when the spring did come, she laughed gleefully, for Femie fhad promised her a visit to her OWE peo- ple. Fernie discovered tae mountains of coal Just as Running Deer had describ- ed them, and this discovery, according t.o the legend, a discovery made; through simple Blackfeet Indian girl, later led to the opening up of the coal fields of the Crow's Nest Pass in British Columbia and South- ern Alberta.
