JUJU

COUGHS WOODENLY.

Patiently awaiting similar Ilyushin
he states blankly:

'They’ll build it up hopefully:
endlessly he’ll knock it down again!’

Note

The title in two bits suggests a primitive force overwhelmed by a power against which the natives have no defence.

The source of this power Is no doubt a mystery to the creatures it destroys; but the Local deity does as much as he can to help his people, although he knows that whatever they rebuild will undoubtedly be knocked flat again.

['Ilyushin' of course can belong to anybody anywhere.]
