Thorpe was perfectly comersnnt with

For a week he Journeyed through
magnificent timber, working always
more and more to the north, until final
ly lip vtood on the shores of Superior.
He resolved to follow the shore wost
to the mouth of n fairly large river
called the Ossuwinamukee. It showed
in common with most streams of Its
size, land already taken, but Thorpe
hoped to II nd good timber near the
mouth. After several days' hard walk
ing with this object In view he found
himself directly north of n bend In the
river, so he turned through the woods
due south, with the Intention of strik
ing In on the stream. This he succeed
ed In accomplishing some twenty miles
Inland, where also he discovered a well
denned nnd recently nscd trail leading
up the river. Thorpe candied one night
at the bond nnd then set out to follow
It led him for upward of ten miles
nearly due south, sometimes approach
ing, sometimes leaving, the river, but
keeping always In Its direction. The
country In general was rolling. Low
parallel ridges of gentle declivity glid
ed constantly across his way, their
valleys sloping to the river. Thorpe
hud never seen a grander forest of
pine than that which clothed them.
At the ten mllo point he came upon
a dam. It was a crude dam, built of
logs, whoso face consisted of strong
buttresses slanted up stream and whose
sheer was made of unbarked timbers
laid smoothly side by side at the re
quired angle. At present Its gate was
The purpose "of the dam In this new
country did not puzzle him In tho
least, but Its presence bewildered him.
Such constructions are often thrown
across logging streams at proper In
tervals in order that the operator may
be Independent of the spring freshets.
The devlco Is common enough, but It
Is expensive. Teoplc do not build

years of logging, und quite extensive

to be nnvlguble the promoter must first
get an lmpiovcment charter from a
board of control appointed by the
state. So Thorpe- knew that ho had
to deal not with a hand to mouth lum

He continued his Journey. At noon
he came to another and similar struc
ture. Hero he left his pack and pushed
ahead In light marching order. About
eight miles above the first dum nnd
eighteen from the bend of the river
he ran Into a "slashing" of the year
before. The decapitated stumps were
already beginning to turn brown with
weather; tho tangle of tops ami limbs
wos partlully concealed by poplar
growths and wild raspberry vines.
To Thorpo this particular clearing be
came at once of the gientest Interest.
Ho scrambled over and through the
ugly debris which for a year or two
after logging operations cumbers the
ground. Hy a rather prolonged search
b found what he sought tho "section
corners" of the tract, on which the gov
ernment surveyor had long ago marked
the "descriptions." A glance at the
map confirmed his suspicions. The
slushing lay some-two miles north of
the sections designated lis belonging to j
prlvute parties. It was government

Ho had that very morning passed

Why had these men deliberately ascend
ed the stream? Why had they stolen
timber eighteen miles from tho bend
when they could equally well have stol
en Just us good fourteen miles nearer
the terminus of their drive?
Thorpe suddouly remembered the
two dams und his Idea that the men in
rluirge of tho river must be wealthy
and must Intend operating on a large
scale. He thought he glimpsed It Aft
er another pipe he felt sure.

nil they could ot n Hiilllclent distance

bo much less to purchase later on.
Thorpe knew that men oceiipleii In
to precarious n business would be keen
ly on the watch, At the llrst hint of
rivalry they would buy In the timber
they hud selected. Hut the sltuutlou
had set his lighting blood to racing.
They undoubtedly wanted tho truct
down river. Well, so did he!
He purposed to look It over carefully,
to ascertain its exact boundaries nnd
what sections It would be necessary to
buy In order to Include It, and perhaps
vveu to estimate It In u rough way. In
the accomplishment of this he would
have to spend the summer and perhaps
pint of tho full In that district. He
could hardly expect to escape notice.
Hy the Indications on the river he
Judged that a crew of men hud shortly
before taken out n drive of logs. After
the timber had been rafted und towed
to Marquette they would return. He
might be able to hide In the forest, but
sooner or later, he was sure, one of the
company's land lookers or huuters
would stumble ou'hls camp. Then his
very concealment would tell them
what he was after. The risk was too
great, for, above all things, Thorpe
needed time. He had. as has been said,
to ascertain what he could offer. Then
ne had to offer It. He would be forced
to Interest capital, nnd that Is a matter
of persuasion and leisure.
Finally his shrewd, Intuitive good
sense flashed the solution on him. He
returned rapidly to his pack, assumed
the btrups and arrived at the llrst dam
about dark of the long summer day.
There he looked carefully about him.
Some fifty feet from tho water's edge
a birch knoll supported, besides the
birches, a single big hemlock. With
his belt nx Thorpo cleared away the
little white trees. He stuck the sharp
ened end of one of them In the bark of
the shaggy hemlock, fnstoued-thc other
end In n crotch eight or ten feet dis
tant, slanted the rest of the saplings
along one side of this ridgepole nnd
turned In, after a hasty supper, leaving
the completion of his permanent camp
to the morrow.

look over tho pine, nor did he Intend
to begin until he could be sure of doing
so In safety. His object now was to

Toward the end of the week he re
ceived his first visit. Evening was

Suddenly he became aware of a pres

"How do?" greeted tho newcomer
The mail was an Indian, silent, sol

"How do?" icpllcd Thorpe.
The fmtlan without further cere
mony threw his pack to the ground,
and. squatting on his heels, watched
the white man's preparations. When
the meal was cooked he coolly pro
duced a knife, selected a clean bit of
hemlock bark and helped himself.
Then he lit a pipe and gazed keenly

long silence, punctuated by the puffs

Oll-llurnlug Steamers Profitable.
In our last issue we published a
short account of the voyage of the
steamer Nebraskan from San Diego,
Cal. to New York, a distance of
about 13,000 miles. When the
steamer arrived at her dock neither
the officers of the ship nor the com
pany by which it is owned would
make any statement as to the
economy of oil fuel compared with
coal until an accurate report could
be figured out. This has now been
done, and the results are most
gratifying to the owners.
When the Nebraskan first went
into commission two years ago,
coal was used as a fuel, and in
making the voyage from New York
to San Diego, that same year 2,267
tens were burned, costing $10,039.
During the voyage just finished
oetween tne same pons, tins same
vessel burned S,826 barrels of oil,
costing $5,427, and weighing 1,260
tons. A saving of $4,612 was
therefore made. When burning
coal the Nebrawkan required 57
days, 5 hours and 43 minutes be
teen New York and San Diego, the
actual steaming time being 53,
days, 20 hours and 20 minutes, two
stops for coal being necessary. Re
turning from San Diego to New
York, the trip required 52 days, 5
hours and 3 minutes, the actual
steaming time being 51 days, 7
hours and 26 minutes, which shows'
j a saving of 5 days and 40 minutes
Another saving made by the use
of oil wns in the cargo space gained
which amounted to 457 tons. Cal
culating the space as worlh $10 a
ton the gain is $4,570. It is esti
mated by the owners that the sav
ing during the voyage on the ash
ejector and the ash cans was about
Altogether the difference in cost
of operation between oil fuel and
coal is calculated at $20,000, which
means more than $10,000 a month

These figures demonstrate the use
fulness of oil as a fuel at the price
paid or even at a much higher
price, as of the $20,000 saved ou
the Hip around Cape Horn only
$4,612 was the direct difference in
the cost of fuel.
