"The devil!' grunted Jean.
"Perhsps your jealous, Croisset,"
auggested Howland. "Great Scott,
I hadn't thought of that!"
"I've got one of my own to love,
M'seur; and I wouldn't trade her
lor all else in the world."
"Damned if I can understand
you," swore the engineer. "You
appear to be half human; you say
you're in love, and yet you'd rather
risk your life than help out Me
leese and me. What the deuce
does it mean?"

The dogs swung sharply from tne
trail, hwadlng from their southerly
course into the northwest
"We will save a day by doing
this," explained Croisset at the
other's sharp word of inquiry.
"We will hit the other trail twenty
miles west of here, while by fol

the same point. That one chance

He shrugged his shoulders and
started the dogs into a trot.
"Look here," cried Howland, run
ning beside him. "Who is with
this other sledge?"
"Those who tried to kill you on
the trail and at the coyote, M'seur,"
he answered quickly.
Howland fell half a dozen paces
behind. By the end of the first
hour he was compelled to rest fre
quently by taking to the sledge,
and their progress was much slow
er. Jean no longer made answer
to his occasional questions. Dog
gedly he swung on ahead to the
right and a little behind the team
leader, and Howland could see that
for some reason Croisset was as
anxious as himself to make the
bent time possible. His own impa
tience increased as the morning
lengthened. Jean's assurance that
the mysterious enemies who had
twice attempted his life were only
a short distance behind them, or a
short distance ahead, set a new and
desperate Idea at work in bis
brain. He was confident that these
men from Wekusko were his chief
menace, and that with them once
out of the way, and with the
Frenchman In his power, the fight
which he was carrying into the
enemy's country would be half
won. There would then be no one
to recognise him but Meleese.
His heart leaped with joyous
hope, and he leaned forward onVhe
sledge to examine Croisset's empty
gun. It was an automatic, and
Croisset, glancing back over the
loping backs of the huskies, caught
him smiling. He rau more fre
quently now, and longer distances,
and with the passing of each mile
his determination to strike a de
cisive blow increased. If they
reached the trail of' Meleese and
Jackpine before the crossing of the
second sledge he would lay In wait

cither case he would possess an
With the same calculating atten
tion to detail that he would have
shown in the arrangement of plans
for the building of a tunnel or a
bridge, he drew a mental map of
his scheme and its possibilities.
There would be at least two men
with the sledge, and possibly three.
If they surrendered at the point of
his rifle without a fight he would
compel Jean to tie them up with
dog-traces, while he held them un
der cover. If they made a move to
offer resistance he would shoot.
With the automatic he could kill or
wound the three before they could
reach their rifles, which would un
doubtedly be on the sledge. The
situation had now reached a point
where he no longer took Into con
sideration what these men might
be to Meleese.
As they continued Into the north
west Howland noted that the thick
er forest was gradually clearing
into wide areas ot small banakian
pine, and that the rock ridges and
dense swamps which had impeded
their progress were becoming less
numerous. An hour before noon,
after a tedious climb to the top of
a frozen ridge, Croisset pointed
down into a vast level plain lying
between them and other great
ridges far to the north.
"That is a bit of the Barren
I>ands that cree];f= down between
those mountains off there, M'seur,"
he said. "Do you see that black
forest that looks like a charred log
in the snow to the south and west
of the mountains? That is the
break that leads into the country
of the Athabasca. Somewhere be
tween this point and that we will
strike the trail. Mon Dleu, I had
half expected to see them out there
on the plain."
"Who? Meleese and Jackpine,
"No, the others, M'seur. Shah
we have dinner here?'
"Not until we hit the trail," re
plied Howland. "I'm anxious to
know about that one chance in a
hundred you've given me hope of,
Croisset. If they have passed "

He went to the head of the dogs,
guiding them down the rough side
of the ridge, while Howland stead
led the toboggan from behind. For
three-quarters of an hour they trav
ersed the low bush of the plain in
silence. From every rlsh)g snow
hummock Jean scanned the white
desolution about them, and each
time, as nothing that was human
came within his vision, he turned
toward the engineer with a sinister
shrug of his shoulders. Once three
moving caribou, a mile or more
away brought a quick cry to his
lips adn Howland noticed that a
sudden flush of excitement came
into his face, replaced In the next
Instant by a look of disappoint
ment. After this he maintained a
more careful guard over the
Frenchman. They had covered less
than half of the distance to the
caribou trail when in a small open
space free of bush Croisset's voice
rose sharply and the team stoppted.
