vaguely hinting that if they were not
the most angelic children that could be
desired, the afore-mentioned vehicle1
would suddenly make its appeHiance
and tiansferthcin to regions where such
things are frightfully common.
This unique sled, although rude in its
mechanism, possessed the virtue of be
ing strong, light, and easy of draught.
It was driven to the door. Carrie and
Julian warmly wrapped in heavy shawl
and thick overcoat, steppi d in. and with
sundry admonitions from Mr. and Mrs.
La V.igne together with a word of
warning from Pat in regard to the
wolves whose bowlings had made the
nights hideous for some time past, and
to leturu if pos, ible before dark. Julian
gathered up the reins, the strong bay
horse which was dignified with the
patrician' name of ('asar. threw up his
head with a cheerful snort, and darting
away at a rapid trot, was soon lost to
view from the house, among the heavy
growth of trees that lined the roadway.

bt ftu e they rained n position opposite
him. This sifrht reminded them of the
admonition of their parents to return
before dark if possible, as night is the
time when these voracious animals usu
ally make their attacks.
Although Julian had his rille and a
good supply of ammunition with him.
he did not use them upon the game they
saw, and nothing of moment occurred
to mar the pleasure of this ride. It was
the first sleigh ride for the season fm
Carrie, and she enjoyed it with a relish
such as only those of her bounding
health and vivacious spirits can feel.
In due time they arrived at the vil
lage and proceeded to purchase tht
articles they were commissioned to pro
cure. The purchases made, their din
ners eaten, their horse fed with a good
mess of corn, for in that country, corr
largely supplies the place of oats a5
food for horses, they had only to call at
the post office for their mail, and would
then be ready to start on their returr
trip for home.
J5y this time it was about two o'clock;
and upon calling at the post office they
were informed that for some unknown
cause the mail carrier had been delayed,
and had not yet arrived, although the
post master was expecting him every
This was the mail which would bring
the city newspapers from the east, and
both Julian and Carrie were anxious to
obtain those papers, as news was an ex
ceedingly scarce article there in the
woods, and every paper received, v as
read and reread by each member of the
La Vergne family, until its contents
were nearly or quite committed to mem
ory. ilence they decided to wait a few
minutes, in the hope that that useful
servant of Uncle Sam's government, the
mail carrier, might arrive in the mean
time; but the few minutes lengthened
into nearly two hours before that im
portant official put in an appearance and
explained the cause of his delay by
stating that some portion of his sleigh
had been broken on the route, which
necessitated considerable delay, as it
had to be repaired before he could pro
ceed. IJy the time the mail was changed
ami our young friends were ready to tie
part, the sun was getting low in the
west, and the short "Winter day was
drawing to a close.
They knew it would be dark long be
fore they could reach home, and they
knew there might be danger in the
woods, but both w ere stout-hearted and
determined to brave it, knowing that
their parents would experience the most
extreme solicitude on their account
should they not return that night.
Stowing themselves in the sled, and
wrapping the thick buffalo robe about
them to protect them from the cold,
Julian picked up the reins and bay
Ca-sar tossed his head and sprang away
upon a sharp gallop along the glisten
ing road toward his home.
Julian pulled him down to a trot. and
the iry beast drew them swiftly over
the snow until Ove or six miles had been
passed over, and then it began to grow
dark. Still the powerful horse abated
iii 'thing of his speed, but in fact seemed
to enjoy the rapid traveling.
So far. but few words had been sjioken
bv either of them, fur both seemed in
tent only on one thing, and thai was to
reach home safelv and as soon as possi
ble. Another half hour, and they passed
the last house they would see before
reaching their home; and vet there was
a long stretch of more than eleven miles
of lonely forest they would be obliged
to traverse first.
Lights were shining from tho win
dows of this last house, denoting that
the family were gathered within and in
safety, and our friends all the more
heartily wished themselves in a hl:e

the horse darted forward upon a faster
trot than before, as if he scented dan

that," added he as they sped on with

blood-curdling howl, sounding a little
nearer than the previous one. and im
mediately it was answered by a like
sound proceeding from about the same
distance upon the opposite side of the
"I believe they have scented us,"
spoke Julian in a low voice, and gazing
as well as he could in the darkness into
the face of his sister, to see if she felt
any of the dread that was oppressing
Hut the brave girl, although hi r face
paled with anxiety, answered:
"We must make a race for it. and (hid
grant that we may be the winners."
"Amen to that, Carrie," ejaculated
the boy fervently, while both silently
vislied they had turned about when
they fust heard tho wolf; for then thev
might have reached the shelter of the
friendly lunise; but it was too late to do
so now, nml all depended upon the speed
and endurance of their horse and the
help of Providence,
They w ere both firm believers in the
power of Providence, but they believed
that that same Providence helps only
Ihose who make efforts in their own be
half, ami they determined to do what
Iheyciiuld to escape the fearful fate
that menaced them.
When bay Ca-sar heard the nearer
howl of the wolf and the answering
yells of his comrades, he quivered for
an instant in fear, then throwing back
his ears until they almost lay upon his
ii' ck. w ith a snort of defiance, he sprang
ahead upon a swift gallop.
Julian did not try to restrain him this
time, hut held his reins taut that the
noble beast might be less likely tostum
ble. and let him proceed at this rapid
gait, encouraging him with "Steady,
Ca-sar! Courage. Ca-sar! We'll distance
them yet. Ca sar!"
For the next two or three miles, noth
ing further was heard from the wolves,
and they began to hope that they had
indeed succeeded in leaving them be
hind, w hen alt at once a fierce, howling
yell followed by more than a score of
yelps ami howls sounded so near that
Carrie involuntarily gave utterance to
a scream of terror, and both quickly
turned their heads in the direction
whence the sounds proceeded, and
there, not more than ten rods in .their
rear, w ith foaming jaw s and gTeat white
teeth that gleamed m the bright moon
light, came about a score of wolves,
rag r for the tempting feast that was
trying to escape them.
The hay horse sprang forward with
act -elt-rat ;-d speed that seemed to equal
the rapidity of a locomotive with a full
head of steam, and wide-open throttle,
arid for the next few minutes, the
wolves fell several rods behind, and our
friends began to breathe easier as they
hoped to be able to outrun the brutes;
but this hope was of brief duration.
S .on the wolves began to gain upon

a large gray fellow, was within fifty

to the gun another charge of powder
and to ram the bullet upon it.
She had barely placed the can upon
the nipple of the gun before the wolves
had approached d ing'-rously near and
sh" could see their bloody tongues loll
ing out of their mouths and hear their
heavy breathing above the sound of the
h"i se's steps. One of them was within
a leap of the sleigh, and his bloodshot
eyes seemed to gleam with horrid satis

within reach of his gleaming teeth.
Another crack from the trusty rifle,
and he lay dead in the midst of the
snarling, howling pack, a few of whom

while the remainder, unchecked. hurried

agonies of death.

"Courage. Julian! We are unharmed

Hut it began to seem that even (iod
had deserted them. Some of the fore
most wolv es were snapping at the buf
falo lobe as it streamed out behind
them, and one wolf had already suc

its fore paws upon the rear of the sled.
Another moment and his fangs would
be fastened in Carrie's back.
Just then Julian aroused himself. He
sprang upon his feet, and swinging his
gun backward upon the head of the
wolf with such force that it broke the
stock in twain, caused the wolf to loosen
