Tlu men grumbled. Due or two were
Inclined to be openly rebellious.

until they muttered nnd then went on:

So Dyer nnd his men picked them
selves out of the trouble ttullcnly and
departed. The ex-sealer had nothing
to say as long as be wan within reueb,
but when be had gained the shore he

With thirty' men at the Job it does

the Pole Star was ready to continue
her Journey. Thorpe climbed nboaril,
leaving Shearer in charge.
"Keep the men nt it. Tim," snlit he.
'Put up the walls of the warehouse
good and strong and move the stuff In.
If yon uet through before I return you
might take a scout up the river nnd fix 1
on a camp site. I'll bring back the
lumber for roofs, floors and trimmings
with mi and will try to pick up a few
axnien for swamping. Those fellows ,
won't bother us any more for tho pres
ent. I think. Hut It pays to bo on deck. '
When Thorpe returned to tho bay be
found the warehouse complete. Shearer
and Andrews, the surveyor, were
scouting up the river.
"Nir trouble from nbove, boys?" ask-1
"Nary trouble," they replied.
The warebouso was secured by part-1
locks, the wagon loaded with the tent
and the necessaries of life and work.
Katiy In the morning the procession
laughing, Joking, skylarklng-took Its
way up the river trail. Lato that even
ing, tired, but still Inclined to nils
rhlef. they came to tho first ibim,
where Shearer and Andrews met thrin.
"How do you like It, Tim?" asked
Thorpe that evening.
"She's all right." replied tho river
man. with emphasis, which for 1ilm
was putting It strong.
At noon the following day the parly
arrived at the second dam. Hero
Shearer bad decided to build the per
manent camp. Injun Charley was con
structing one of his endless series of
birch bark canoes. Later ho would
paddle the whole string to Marquette,
where be would sell them to a harrt
ware dealer for ?2.50 apiece.
Injun Charley looked up ami grunted
as Thorpe approached.
"How are you, Charles?" greeted
'you gettuni plno? Good!" replied
Charley In the same tone.

Thorpe was approached by the walking

did not pretend any hypocritical friend- i

that it would not do to be too ambitious
