O-bawb-ika lake is called Ma’nitu Pi’pa’gi, “Spirit Echo”. On the eastern shore of this lake is a great rock where a Manitu is believed to live. Whenever anyone makes a noise in the vicinity, the Manitu becomes angry and growls. His plaints, people believe, can be clearly heard when he is offended. they never go near there when they can avoid it; and they seldom throw a stone in the lake, splash their paddles, or shoot their guns near its shores.
