A PHILOSOPHIC MISSIONARY - DION CHRYSOSTOM

anchoring under the neighbouring headland, with the idea of staying there and working with them. Left to myself and not having any place to take refuge in, I wandered aimlessly by the sea, on the chance of seeing some ship at anchor or sailing near. I had gone some way without seeing a human being, when I came on a deer that had recently fallen from the precipice on to the beach. The waves were breaking on it, but it still breathed. After a little I thought I heard dogs barking on the cliff, but hearing was difficult owing to the noise of the sea. I went on and with great difficulty climbed some high ground, where I saw dogs running to and fro as if they had lost a scent, and I guessed that the deer, pressed by them, had leapt from the cliff. Soon I met a man whom I judged by his look and dress to be a hunter ; his cheeks were bright with health, and a striking wealth of hair fell over his shoulders.

The hunter offers Dion hospitality and on the way to his hut talks about his life.
STRANGER, said he, there are two of us, living together. We married each other's sister and have sons and daughters. We live mainly by hunting, but do a little farming. The farm is not our own, either by inheritance or purchase ; our fathers were free men but as poor as ourselves. They worked, as herds, for wages, tending the beasts of a rich man down in the city, who owned large flocks of horses and cattle, great herds of sheep, many fine farms, a quantity of other property, and all these mountains. He died and his property was confiscated-they say the prince put him to death for his money. They drove off his herd at once to kill, and with it our few poor cattle, and no one paid us for them. In the past we were compelled to stay here, where we happened to be keeping our animals and had built some huts and a small and flimsy courtyard for the calves, against the summer. In the winter we pastured them in the plains, where we found plenty of grass and a big store of forage. But irn summer we drove them
