He made a small boat and put it in the water on the further side, but to no purpose, for the women did not come out.

That way
'islun-te:
birth will be given,"

Then he came up along the Trinity until he came to Sugar Bowl.

From the top of the hill he looked back at the dam he had made.

hayah-mił-'ung'
And
'a:ch'ondehsne'
he thought,

"Recent

He thought it looked so good with the falling water that even a newly made widow would think of many things, if she should see it, and would sing love songs.

hayah-mił

As this would not do he went back and made the ridge which stands in front of it so the water-fall could not be seen.

haya:ł-'ung'
And

Then he made a butte on each side at Djictangading from which he might look.

haya:ł-'ung'
And

And then

And
'a:ch'ondehsne'
he thought,

And then

Failing in this he took away the buttes and went back down the river.
