"Who can it be!"
"Some ono from town

comnlished skater in tho same snot whero ' sudden crash. Ho felt tho ice beneath
he had just beheld it tbo inBtant before.
, I reckon. At all
events, I'll run down and havo a nearer
look at him."
And, suitjng tlio action to tho word, ho
struck out Icieurly down tho river.
A fow yards below tho point at which
the form seen by Jack.was gliding nboift,
the liver took a bend, and narrowed sud
denly, running for more than three miles
between lofty, overhanging banks, from
which the trees, chiefly hemlock and pine
projected themselves towards cacti other
from cither shore, throwing the stream in
to deep fhadow, with hero and thero a
baud of light, where a few trees had been
cut down, or hud fallen away from the
bank with the gradual wash of the soil
from their gnarled roots.
To Jack's astonishment, no sooner was
ho fairly untlor weight for tho mysterious
skater than the latter, apparently seeing
and divining Irs intontion,suddcnly ceased
his gyrations, and after an instant's pause'
swiftly hot down tho river, keeping close
in shore, and .evidently with tho design ol
eyatling Jack's pursuit.

Fortunately,, tho river was not very
deep at tbii pcint, nor was tho current at
all rapid,and in another moment Jack was
struggling manfully among tho broken ioo
to reach tho firm edge of the airholo.
But, encumbered as ho was by his hoavy
clothing, aptl-iioarly paralyzed by the
intense cold of tho wator, it is more than
doubtful whether ho would havo succeed
ed in rescuing himself from a horrible
death ! Help, however, was at hand I
The phantom had hoard tho shriek and
seen Jack dltsappct'r, and, swift as a swal
low's flight, it sped to tho rescue. Ou the
very c,dgo of tbo air-holo it halted, and,
rapidly tearing off a longpashmero soarf,
with which its throat and shoulders .wore
protected, planted its tkatCB firmly ath
wartwiso on the i co, and flung the end of
the ecarf,with skilful aim,right into Jack's
face, crying at the same time, in a clear,
"Hold hard, Jack, and never foar!
Now for it !"
That voico gavo Jack new life. ABud
den glow seemed to gather round his
heart, and to start the warm blood afresh
through all his sliffering frame. He
caught tho .scarf in his teeth, and then,
gmpiug it with his left hand, was .ena-

along with no load but bis spoar or war

ing under tho weight of their' goods and
chattels, which eho is compelled lo oarry
from camp to c'smp. Courtship, as the
precursor to marriago, is unknown among
them. When a young warrior is desirous
of procuring a wife, ho generally obtains
0110 by giving in exchange for her a sistcx-
or somo other femalo Telative of his own;
but if there should happen to be no eligi
ble damsel difcngagcd in tho tribe to
which he belongs, then ho hovers round
the encampment of tonic other black until
ho gets an opportunity of seizing 0110 of
their leubras, whom porhaps ho has seen
and admired in attending one of the grand
corroborries. Ilia modo of paying his
addresses is simple and efficacious. With
a blow of his nulla nulla (war club,) ho
stuns tho object ol his "affections," and
drags her insensible body away to somo
retired spot, when as soon as she recovers
her senses, he brings hei home to his own

then for several days they watch tho move

utmost in concealing their presence.

they require, they wait for a dark, windy
night; then quite naked, and carrying
