When the men of the service lei
valdez to build the military line
through the interior of Alaska, Lang
field went with them,
He was undeniably plain, under
sized and over-sensitive, and that wai
why he felt certain that Dolly couli
never love him, To be sure, he had nr
intention of loving her, but when si:s
feet two of well developed manhood,
m the person of Tom Derry, came down
from Circle City prospecting, Lang
field found that intentions and love
had very little to do with each other.
Vainly he stood erect, but not ene cu
bit could he add to his stature, and
every morning thc square of looking
glass impressed afresh the redness of
his hair upon him.
Tom and Dolly had known each
other In the Stales, and Langfield
watched with hopeless pain the re
newal of their friendship. She had
grown shy with bim since Perry carce
and lhere could be but one reason, be
argued. He did net blame her; there
was nothing in him to inspire a wom
an's love, and Tom- So he packed his
flute and his knapsack and left willi
scarcely a farewell.
^ The men wera fcot fond of Lang
field. He had a way of shrinking into
himself, that only Shivers, thc camp
mascot, a lank mongrel Siwash willi
Lhc stump of a tail, understood.
Mornings, when the "Top Sergeant"
-ave his first call through the camp,
t was the warm tongue of Shivers that
irought Lanefield into touch with the
lay. and later, when the company lined
ip around thc mess tent for their r?
lons of coffee and beans, thc man
i'ould seek a secluded stump for a ta
le, with the dog huddled by his side.
Langfield seldom joined the camp
res. But when Hie fever broke out,
angficld was the first to offer his i-er
ices. He was not afraid of contagion
e told the sergeant, and anyway,
1?re was no one at home who needed
?m. After that he and Shivers took

tanks to the nursing, was borne up
ie trail and laid away under the snow,
angfield planed a piece of spruce
antling and drove it in by the mound,
it his hand was unsteady, and his
es were heavy and dull.
The "Top Sergeant" on his rounds
e next morning found him sitting |
) in has blankets. His face was swob j
a and discolored, and he was talk- \
S excitedly to Shivers. I

jse to him, "maybe she'll forget- 1

The men were very tender to Lang- 1
?ld after that, and Shivers seldom i
ft his bedside. 1
When, some weeks later, he became .
mvalescent, he seemed smaller and :
ighter than ever, and his hair shone
ore vividly red against the pinched,
hite face. They carried him out into
ic sunshine, but his eyes wandered
,'gretfully up to the snow.
In a month he was at the post
?ain, doing thc work of two men.
ith scarcely thc strength of one.
He came down the mountain one
ight an hour behind time. The trail
as slushy, and the early gray twi
ght lent a soft indistinctness every
rhere. Suddenly he paused and stood
:oking intently at a line of fresh
racks in the path. His first thought
;as of Shivers. He always met him,
int seldom so* far from the camp,
bighting a match, the only one he had,
ie bent closer. The prints were too
lean-cut for a dog; the opposites al
most overlapped each other, and Shiv
irs was broad-chested. Cautionsly the
nan crept on, peering about for an
ther mark he knew. It was there
i slight depression in thc mud, like
:he fringe of a feather. Only the edge
:f a shaggy tall made that. He stood
jp and looked around him. He was
not afraid of death, but he had a de
cided preference regarding its.medium,
and a she-wolf hunting for a family
dinner was hardly to his liking.
The camp was three miles away, and
the underbrush made a cross-cut im
possible; besides, the snow still lay in
the ravines. Tnere was one thing to
be done, and drawing his hat securely
down, he started forward, then paused
again, with his head raised to listen.
From somewhere there came a faint
cry, weak and indistinct, but undenia
Langfield made a trumpet of his
hands. "Hel-lo!" he shouted, and
strained his ears for the reply.
Some 10 feet down the trail a gla
cier stream had gullied out the bank.
Its icy, slate colored waters fell al
most perpendicularly over the rocks.
Creeping to the slippery edge, he
peered over and called again. A faint

scratched and torn by the brambles at
every step. A little farther on a rob
of blankets impeded his way, and h<
knew that somewhere in the ravine bc
.j rf he would find a prospector.
The man proved to be a big fellow
out the light was too dim to see hi:
face. The force of his fall had wedgei
one leg between the crevices of rodi
and it look Langfield's entire .strengt!
to extricate him. He pressed bis can

him vigorously, but it was half a
hour before he could get him up tb

wrought fancy, he heard the cry of th
mother-wolf for food, and once he. wa

hand to thc sheath in his belt, stole a
sideways glance at his companion and
saw that his eyes were closed. He
drew out the knife and held it behind
him. His breath came in short, con
Just then Perry gave a stifled moan.
The cound brought Langfield to his
senses. What was this he had in
tended to do? A fit of trembling
seized him. He rose to his feet, though
he reeled as he uid so. There wa3 a
swift movement of his right arm, and
something glanced in the light and fell
far below them in the brush.
"No one needs me," he thought, "and
"Come," he said aloud, "we must get
you down for-your wife's sake."

he did his voice was a trifle husky.

The use pf steam shovels at some of
the large Iron mines in the Lake Su
perior region-in loading cars at the
mines has long been an important ele
ment in reducing the cost of our iron
ore. The handling of the ore in this
manner years ago reached a degree
of perfection that is almost incredible.
