374. Play: Ill wife (continued)
After giving her some liquid through a bamboo stem, the medicine man whips out the evil spirits with a bundle of leaves. She screams and is getting notably better. Having succeeded the medicine man leaves.

The next day the father and son go out to work in the forest while the mother is resting. When they come home she is laying dead. The husband is furious. He takes his bow and arrow and goes hunting...for the medicine man.
