nnd thu knowledge he needed, but that
was about nil. Ilia wages were $25 n
month, which his van bill would rv
duct to tho double englc. At the end
of the winter he would have but n lit
tle over $100 to show for his season's
work, nnd this could mean nt most on
ly $50 for Helen. Hut tho future was
his. Ho saw now more plainly what
he hnd dimly perceived before, thnt
for the man who buys timber, nnd lugs
It well, n suro future Is wnltlng. And
In this en nip be was beginning to team
from failure tho conditions of success.
PqiIFA' finished cutting on section I
II , .?? i,,or,'ls """J" '
I 1 I ,wcc,k- " became necessary to ,
L J begin on section 14. which lay
two mtles to the cast. In that direction
the character of the country changed
The pine there grew thick on Isolated j
"Islands" of not more than an ncro or
so In extent-little knolls rising from ,
the level of a marsh. In ordinary con-
dltlons nothing would have been easier ,
man 10 nuve ijiuweu runutn across me
frozen surface of this marsh. The pe
culiar state of the weather interposed
The early pnrt of autumn had been
characterized by a heavy snowfall Im
mediately after n scries of mild days.
A warm blanket of some thlcknesi
thus overlaid the eith, effectually pre
venting the freezing which subsequent
cold weather would have en used. All
the season Itadway had contended with
this condition. Even In the woods,
muddy swamp find spring holes ennsed
endless difficulty and necessitated a
great deal of "corduroying." or the lay
ing of poles side by side to form nn
artificial bottom. Here In tho open
some six Inches of water nnd unlimit
ed mud awaited the first horse that
should break through 'the layer of snnvf
nnd thin Ice. Between each pair of Is
lands n road had to be "tramped."
Thorpo nnd the rest were put nt this
dlsngreeable Job. All day long they
hud to walk mechanically buck mid
forth on diagonals between the murits
set by Itadway with his snowshocs.
Early In tho morning their feet were
wet by ley water, for even the light
.weight or" n man sometimes broke the
frozen skin of tho marsh. By night
u road of trampled snow of greater or
less strength was marked out across
tho expanse. Thus the blanket was
thrown back from tho warm earth,
s,ud thus thc.cold was given a clia-ncc
at the water beneath. In a day or so
the road would bear a horse. A bridge
of Ice had been artificially constructed,
on either side of which lay unsounded
depths. This road wns Indicated by
a row' of II rs stuck in tho snow on
It was very cold. All day long the
restless wind swept ncross the shiver
ing surfaco of the plains and tore
ureiind the corners of the Islands. The
big woods are as good ns an overcoat
The overcoat had been taken away.
When tho lunch sleigh arrived the
men huddled shivering ln the lee of
one of the knolls and tried to eat with
beuumhed fingers beforo n fire that
was but a mockery. Often It was near
ly dark beforo their work warmed
them again. All of the skldways had
to be placed on the edges of the Is
lands themselves, nnd the logs hud to
bo travoyed over tho steep little knolls.
A single misstep out on to the plain
mennt a mired horse. Three times
heavy snows obliterated tho ronds, so
that they had to bo plowed out before
the men could go to work again. It
was u struggle.
Undwuy was evidently worried. lie
often paused beforo a gang to Inquire
how they wcru "malting it." He seem
ed afraid they might wish to quit,
which was Indeed the ense, but he
should never have tuken beforo them
any attitude but Uiat of absolute con
fidence in their Intentions. His anx
iety was natural; however. Ho re
alized the absolute necessity of skid
ding nnd hauling this Job before tho
heavy choking snows of the latter part
of January should inako It Impossible
to keep the ronds open. So Insistent
was this necessity that ho had seized
the first respite In the phenomenal
snowfall of thu early autumn to begin
work. Tho cutting In the woods could
Left to themselves, probably the men
would never have dreamed of objecting
to whatever privations the tiiHk car
ried with it. Railway's anxiety for
their comfort, however, caused them
finally to Imagine that perhaps they
might have some Just grounds for com
plaint nfter nil. That Is a great trait
of tho lumber Jack.
But Dyer, tho scaler, finally caused
the outbreak. Dyer was an efficient
enough man In his way, but ho loved
his own ease. Ills hublt was to stay In
his bunk of mornings until well after
daylight. To this there could bo no
objection except on tho part of the
cook, who wiiB supposed to attend to i
his business himself, for tho scaler was
active In his work when once ho begnu
it and could keep up with the skidding. I
But now he displayed n strong antlpa-
thy to tho north wind on the plains.
"I don't pose for no tough son of u I
gun!" said he to Itadway. "And I've
got some respect for my, ears and feet.
Klii.'ll warm mi u little bv tomorrow.
and eerhuus tho wlud '11 dlo. I can
eaten up to you fellows ny nuijtiing n
little, so I guess I'll stay In and work
on the books today."
"All right," Itudwny assented, n lit
This happened perhaps two days out
of the week. Finally Dyer hung out a
thermometer, which he used to consult.
The men saw It nnd consulted It too.
At once they felt much colder.
"She wns stan 10 below," sputtered
Bnptlsto Telller, the Frenchman who
played the fiddle. "He freeze t'rou to
bees eenside. Dnt is too cole for mat
in' de work." 4

"That's right," agreed Bob Stratton.
"They's the west half of 'eight ain't
been cut yet"
So they sent a delegation to Itadway.
Big Nolan wos the spokesman.
"Boss," said he bluntly, "she's too
cold to work on them plains todny.
She's the coldest day we had."
Railway was too old a hand nt the
business to make any promises on the
"I'll sec, boys," said he-.
When the breakfast was over the
crew were sent to making skldwnys
nnd travoylng roads on "eight." This
wns a precedent. In thno the work on
the plains wns grumbllngly done Ifi any
wcnther. However, as to this Rndwoy

lie would have to work diligently nnd
itendlly during tho rest of the winter.
Having thus a definite task to ac
lompllsh In a definite number of days.
Rndway grew to be more of a task
.nastor. Thus ho regained to n sruat
degree the respect of his men. Then ho
lost it again.
One morning he came In from n talk
with the supply teamster nnd woke
Dyer, who was not up yet.
"I'm going down home for two or
threo weeks," he announced to Dyer.
"You know my nddrcs. You'll have to
take charge, and I guess you'd bettor
let the scaling go. Wo can get the tally
at the banking grounds when we begin
to haul. Now, wo nln't got nil the time
there Is, so you want to keep tho boys
nt it pretty well."
Dyer twisted tho little points of his
mustache. "All right, sir," said ho,
with his smile so lnscrutnbly Insolent
thnt Radwny never saw tho Insolence
nt all. He thought this u poor year for
n man In Uadwny's position to spend
Christmas with his family, but It wns
none of his business,
"Do ns much us you can In the marsh,
Dyer," went on tho jobber. "I don't
believe It's renlly necessary to lay oft
any more (here on account of the
"All right," repented Dyer.
The sealer did what he considered
his duty. All day long he tramped
hnck and forth from one gang of men
to tho other, keeping n sharp eye on
tho details of the work. Ills practical
experience was sutUcieut to solve readi
ly such problems as broken tackle, ex
tra expedients or facility which tho
days brought forth. The fact that In
111 tn wns vested tho power to discharge
kept the men nt work.
Dyer was In tho habit of starting for
the mnrsh an hour or so nfter sunrise.
I The crew, of course, were at work by
daylight. Dyer heard them often
through his doze, Just ns he heard tho
chore boy como in to build the lire and
till tho water pall afresh. After a
time tho lire, built of kerosene nnd
pitchy hjnek pine, would got so hot
that In 'ftlf defense he would arise and
dress. Then ho would breakfast lei
surely. Thus ho Incurred tho enmity of the
cook and cookee. Those Individuals

for half a hundred enters, besides
which on sleigh haul they aro sup
posed to servo breakfast at II o'clock
for tho loaders and n variety of lunches
up to midnight for thu sprinkler men
As a consequence they resent infrac
