two older men went out leaving New
"But I don't quite understand." quer
ied Mr. Stephan Maitland.
He heard a soft step on the stair
in the hall without; the gentle swish
of a dress as somebody descended
from the floor above. A vision ap
peared in the doorway. Without a
movement in opposition, without a
word of remonstrance, without a throb
of hesitation on her part, he took her
in his arms. From the drawing-room
opposite. Mr. Robert Maitland softly
tiptoed across the hall and closed the
library door, neither of the lovers be
ing aware of his action.
Often and often they had longed for
each other on the opposite side of a
door, and now at last the woman was
in the man's arms and no door rose
between them, no barrier kept them
apart any longer. There was no obli
gation of loyalty or honor, real or im
agined, to separate them now. They
ha6 drunk deep of the chalice of cour
age, they had drained the cup to the
very bottom, they had shown each
other that though love was the great- I
est of passions, honor and loyalty were I
the most powerful of forces,. and now
they reaped the reward of their abne
gation and devotion.
At last the woman gave herself up
to him in complete and entire aban
donment without fear and without re
proach; and at last the man took what
was his own without the shadow of
a reservation. She shrank from no
pressure of his arms, she turned her
face away from no touch of his lips.
They two had proved their right to
surrender by their ability to conquer.
Speech was hardly necessary be
tween them, and it was not for a long
time that coherent words came. Little
murmurs of endearment, little pas
sionatJ whispers of a beloved name
these were enough then.
When he could find strength to deny
himself a little and to hold her at

her paler, thinner and more delicate

mountains. She had on some witching

didn't know what it was; be didn't

FIRST SHOTS AT A CARIBOU -
J. T. Studley Fired Seven Times in

What the "buck ague" is like is de
scribed in "The Journal of a Sporting
Nomad." by .I. T. Studley. The au- th.
thor's first attempt against the cart- an
bou resulted in humiliation. He tells Jo
that Johnny, his Indian guide, sudden no
ly dropped like a stone into the wet
grass and muttered "Stab" and there, an
sure enough, strolling along the front, su
was a fine caribou. "I sat down, rest

until he should put in an appearance tri
on my side of the rock. 1 had the rifle lii
to my shoulder and at last the grand sa
beast walked into view. not more bi
than 100 yards away. He stopped.
looking about him, and I drew a bead
on his shoulder. Useless! The rifle In
wabbled all over the place, and for ot
the life of me I could not keep it still,
nor hold my breath. My heart was in m
my mouth and all the time the rifle tr
trembled and shook. The caribou
moved on a few paces and I deter
mined that if I meant to shoot at all
I must obtain better control of my
nerves. I still covered him with the
sights, or thought I was doing so, as
I pulled the trigger on the beast that
was standing broadside on, with his
head turned from me."
"I was using a 500 Winchester Ex
press, and it was the work of an in
stant to pump another cartridge into
the chamber and fire again. Still no
move on the part of my target. He
faced the other way nonchalantly, lis
tening with Interest to the echo of
the rifle in the distant canyons. I was
getting desperate now and could hear
the Mlcmac muttering all sorts of Im
precations behind my back, which
only made things worse. I fired five
more shots at that caribou as he stood
as though carved In wood, persever
ing until he turned off calmly into a
belt of timber.
