Excerpt

had again cut down the distance. Then it dawned upon me that they were following something in the river. I watched the bend, the buzzards ever circling nearer, their numbers continually being augmented by fresh arrivals. At last it came in sight--a canoe containing one man.

But why should the turkey-buzzards follow him?

That the Indian made no move to escape was inexplicable unless the first shot had killed him out
