A wife's illness, the failure of the hunt, or a spoiled crop are all believed to be the work of witches-a witch may not even be conscious of his or her powers, like the woman accused of causing her co-wife sickness merely through unfriendly thoughts. A couple stands accused of adultery; both deny the charge and agree to the chief's suggestion they be tried by Benge, a ritual poison fed to a chicken-whether the chicken lives or dies determines their guilt. When the Benge tri [...]
