Just guess Here s got to be some reforming in is House this Amos came it the hate shortly after so Lydia was waiting for him at " e front door he looked suddenly Hubby and old to Lydia and she a mused him very tenderly. It required die supper hour and ail the remainder of the evening to Tell the Story of the Camp and to answer Liz and Amos questions. There a were several episodes Lyden did not describe that of the half Reed Council in the Wood for example. Lyden was sitting on the front b Eris the nest afternoon with a Book a her Lap and Adam it her feet when 1jhly Norton called. He stopped for a Chut in the Garden with her father wore coming up to Greet Lyden.

Now i m growing up he seems to be getting sensitive about my earn Long he s right too snid Billy with a note in his voice thut irritated Lyden. Much you know about it you just try to make your clothes and buy your school books on nothing. Dad s just afraid people la know How Little lie earns that s All. Men Are selfish astonished by this outburst Billy turned round to look up at Lyden. She was wearing her sunday dress of the year before cheap Cotton that she Imd outgrown. The Young Man at her feet did not see tills. All he observed were the Dusty Gold of her curly head the Clear Blue of her eyes and the line set of her head on her thin Little shoulders. You always look just right to me Lyd lie said. Listen Lyd. I m not going to be a Farmer i a not be a Fanner cried Lydia. After nil you be snid about it no i m going in for two years Law then i m going into politics. I Tell you Lyden what this country needs today More than anything is Young clean you menu you re going to do like or. Levine god forbid exclaimed the Young Man. I m going to Light men like Levine. And by Heck he paused and looked it Lyden dreamily ill be governor and maybe More but what s changed you persisted Lydia. The fight about the reservation mostly. There s something wrong you know in n system of government that allows conditions like that. It s against american Lydia was impressed. She forgot that Billy smelled of the barnyard. Well she said we d All be proud of you if you were president i can Tell would you be Billy s voice was pleased. Then Lydia will you wait for me wait for you yes till i make a name to bring to Lydia flushed angrily. Look Here Billy Norton you Don t have to be silly after All Tho years we be known each other. I m Only fifteen just remember that and i Don t propose to wait for any Man. I d As soon think of waiting for for Adam As for you Billy Rose with dignity and without a word strode Down the path to the Gate and thence up the Road. Lydia stared after film indignantly. That old Farmer she said to Adam who wriggled and clobbered sympathetically she was still indignant when Tolu Levine arrived and found her toasting herself and the waffles for supper indiscriminately. Perhaps it was this sense of indignation that made her less patient than usual with what she was growing to consider the foibles of Riant replied Crosby. Lydia of the male sex. At any rate a he precipitated her carefully planned conversation with Levine when the Lour of them were seated on the Back Steps after supper. The others were. Account of Lier investigating tour with Charlie. I should t say it Wos the Best idea in tiie world for you to be wandering through the Woods a Lii that Young Indian was Lovine s comment when Lydia had finished. I Don t see How you can speak so cried Lydia passionately when this minute you re taking his Pine Lydia i suld Amos sharply. Let her alone Amos Levine spoke quietly. What Are you talking about Lyden the indians Are people just like us she cried and you re treating them As if they were beasts. You re robbing them and letting them starve 1 listening to Lydia s making Money out of hem maybe the very Money you paid our note with was made out of u starved Squaw. Of i Enn t stand it to think it of Yon Lydia paused with a half sob and for a moment Only the gentle Ripple of. The Waves on the Shore and the crickets were to lie heard. Levine Elbow on knee Chin on hand looked through the dusk at the shadowy sweetness of Lyden s face his own face Calm and thoughtful. You re so Good and kind to me Lydia began again How can you be so hard on the indians Are you stealing Charlie s logs Are you or Levine i bought his Pine replied Levine quietly. He does t believe it. He thinks you re stealing. And lie s so afraid of you. Why does lie feel that Way or. Levine Lydia Khafre you saying exclaimed Amos. Keep out Amos said Levine. We be got to Clear tills up. I be been expecting it for some time. Lydia years ago before the government began to support the indians they were a Fine upstanding race. The Whites could have Learned a lot from them. They were Brave and honorable and moral and in a primitive Way Thrifty. Well then the sentimentalist among Trio Whites devised the reservation system and the allowance system. And tiie indians have gone to the Devil just As Wiltes would under like circumstances. Any human being has to earn what he eats or he degenerates. The Only Way to save those indians up there is to kick them out. The Strong ones will live and be assimilated into our civilization. The weak ones will die just like weak Whites but How about Charlie s Pines insisted Lyden. What makes him think you re stealing them and be says that when the Pines go the tribe will i paid for the Pine insisted Levine. An Indian has no idea of buying and Selling. It s a cruel incident this breaking up of the reservation but it s like cutting off a leg to save the patient s life. Sentiment is Lyden was turning Over in her mind Tho scene in the Woods Between John and the half Breeds. That then was a part of the process of removing the patient s leg the end justified the Mentis. She heaved n great sigh of Relief. Well then i Don t have to worry about that any More she said. Only i Don t Dure to think about those starving old squaws or the buoy that froze to that s right agreed Levine comfortably. Don t think about if the. E was still n doubt in the Buck of Lyden s mind regarding the reservation for a time it least she succeeded in quieting it. One of the not unimportant results of the camping trip was that Lydia rediscovered the Pine by the Gate. It was tiie same Pine against which she had beaten her Little fists the night of patience s death. She liked to sit on the Steps and stare it it dreaming and wondering. For tiie indians and the Pines were now unalterably associated in Lydia s mind. The life of one depended on that of the other. Strange thoughts and perhaps not altogether cheerful mid wholesome thoughts for a girl of Lydia s age. So it was probably Well that Margery about this time began to show Lyden a certain Type of attention. In Lier heart in spite of her Mother s teachings Margery had always shared her father s admiration for Lydia. In her childhood it had been a grudging jealous admiration that seemed like actual dislike. But As Margery developed As a social favorite and Lydia remained about the same quiet Little Dowd the jealousy of the banker s daughter gave Way to liking. Therefore several times a week Margery appeared on her bicycle her embroidery bag dangling from the handle bars. Tiie two girls would then establish themselves on cushions by the water and sew and chatter. One Day Lydia snid i wish we had Birdwood floors like what kind Are yours inquired Margery. Just Pine and kind of mean splinter Pine too. Upstairs at Olga s All the floors were that Way suld Margery and they had a Man come and sandpaper pm and put kind of Putty stuff in the cracks mid Oil nud Wax pm and they look gee said Lydin thoughtfully. Ill do it and i la Cut our old living room carpet up into two or three rugs. Mlkle a have to squeeze enough out of the grocery Money for fringe. I d rather have fringe than a fall Amos coming Home a night or so inter found the living room floor Bare and Lyden hard it work with a bit of Glass and sandpaper scraping at the slivers.

It took Lydia several Days to Complete her task. When it was done the cracks were still prominent and the oily finish was spotted. But in Lydia s eyes it was a work of Art and Bhe Cut the old carpet into three parts with enthusiasm. She sewed the fringe on the rugs on the front porch. Sitting so she could see Margery when she appeared far Down the Road. On the afternoon on which she finished the last of the rugs Charlie Jackson and not Margery appeared. He admired the rugs and the gleam of the shining floor through the door Way. Then without preamble he asked did you talk to Levine Lydia yes she said.
