Thirty feet below, under the threaten

out and set adrift, one by one, the tim

time to time the mass creaked, settled,
perhaps even moved a foot or two. but

was offering It the chance.
.Suddenly the six men below the Jain
scattered. Four of them Jumped light
ly from one floating log to another In
the zigzag to shore. The other two ran
the length of their footing and. -overleaping
an open of water, landed heav
ily and firmly on the very ends of two
small Moating logs. In this manner the
force of the jump rushed the little tim
bers end-on through tho woter. The
two men, maintaining inarveloiisly
ithelr balance, were thus ferried to

In the meantime a barely perceptible
motion was communicating Itself from
one particle to another through the cen
ter of the Jam. The men redoubled their
exertions. A sharp crack exploded Im
mediately underneath. There could no
longer exist any doubt ns to the motion,
although It was as yet sluggish, glacial.
Then In silence n log shifted In silence

crew were forced continually to alter
their positions, riding the changing tim

his four galloping horses.
Then all at once down by the face

became alive. It hissed and roared; It
shrieked and grumbled. At first slow

forward and downward until It caught
the tierce rush of the freshet and shot
out from under the Jam. Far up

tons of logs, gi lulling savagely to

When the log. began to cave under

river men found dllllciilty In "staying

of hunting safety.

Then In a manner wonderful to be

ten feet straight downward, to alight
with accuracy on a single log floating
ftee In thu current. And then In the
very glory and chaos of the jam Itself
Uo was swept down stream.
After a moment the constant accel
eration in speed checked, then com
menced perceptibly to slacken. At
once the lest of the crew began to ridu
down stream. Kaeh stiuek the calks
of his river boots strongly Into a log
and on such unstable vehicles floated
miles with the current. From time to
time, as Hryan Moloney Indicated, ono
of them went nshoie. There, usually
at a bend of the stream where tho
likelihood of Jamming was great, they
took their stands. When necessary the.vv
ran out over tho faco of the river to
separate a congestion likely to cntiso
tiouble. The rest of the time they
smoked their pipes.

on the brink of plunge. Then Shearer

For this purpose Wily Canip, the
cook, had loaded his cook stove, a quan
tity of provisions and a supply of bed
ding aboard a scow. At either end were
long sweeps to direct Its course. The
craft was perhaps forty feet long, but
rather narrow, In order that It might
pass easily through the shoot of a dam.
It was called the "wanlgan."
The huge, unwieldy craft from that
moment was to become possessed of
the devil. Down the white water of
rapids It would bump, smashing obsti
nately against bowlders, against the
branches of the stream side It would
fcrape, In the broad reaches It would
lulk. refusing to proceed, and when
expediency demanded Its pause it
would drag Wily Camp and bis entire
crew at the lope's end, while they trleO

uprooted trees nnd stumps. When nt

the night usually a mile or so below
