"Did you know Cherry before you
came to KalTik?" Boyd asked, search
ing hfs companion's nice with a look
the man could not evade.
"Nome the year of the big rush."
"During the mining troubles, eh?"
"What was she doing?"
"Minding her business. She's good at
that." Fraser's eyes had become green
and flshy, as usual.
"What do you know about her?"
"Well. I know that a lot of fellows
would 'go through' for her at the drop
of a hat. She could have most any
thing they've got. I guess. Most any
of them miners at Nome would give
his right eye or his only child, or any
little thing like that, If she asked It."
"Well; she was always considered a
right good looking party"
"Yes. yes; of course. But what do
you know about the girl herself? Who
is she? What is her history?"
"Now, sir, I'm an awful poor detec
tive," confessed "Fingerless" Fraser.
"I've often noticed that about myself.
If I was the kind that goes snooping
around into other people's business,
listening to all the gossip I'm told, I'd
make a good witness. But I ain't. No,
sir! I'm a rotten witness."
Despite this indirect rebuke, Boyd
might have continued his questioning
had not George Bait's heavy step
sounded outside. A moment later the
big fellow entered.
"What did you find at the traps?"
asked Emerson eagerly.
"Nothing." George spoke shortly.
"The flsh struck In this morning, but
our trap Is corked." He wrenched off
his rubber boots and flung them sav
agely under a bench.
"What hick with the boats?"
"Not much. Marsh's men are trying
to surround our gill netters, and we
ain't got enough boats to protect our
selves." He looked up meaningly from
under his heavy brows and inquired,
"How much longer are we going to
stand for this?"
"What do you mean? I've got men
out hunting for new hands."
"You know what I mean." the giant
rumbled, his red eyes flumins. "You
and I can get Willis Marsh."

Intently. Out upon the placid waters,
abreast of the plant, the launch in

with men. Not only were they crowd

"Cherry has got a crew!" His voice
broke, and he bolted toward the door
as Big George leaped to the window.
"Injuns!" wildly shouted tlje giant,
and without stopping to stamp his feet
Into his boots he rushed out barefoot
after Boyd and Fraser. . Together the
three men reached the dock in time to
help Cherry up the ladder.
"What does this mean?" Boyd asked
her breathlessly. "Will these fellows
"That's what they're here for," said
the girl. After her swarmed a crowd
of slant eyed, copper hued Aleuts.
Those in the kyaks astern cast off and
paddled toward the beach.
"'I've got fifty men, the best on the
river. I tried to get more, but there
aren't any more."
"Fingerless" Fraser slapped himself
resoundingly upon the thigh and ex
ploded profanely. Boyd seized the
girl's hands in his and wrung them.
"Cherry, you're a treasure! The
memory of his desperate resolution of
a moment before swept over him sud
denly and his voice trembled with a

claimed. "It was more Constantine's

when they were hungry last winter,
and I prevailed upon tbem to come.
They aren't very good fishermen.
They're awful lazy ar.d they won't
work half as hard as white men, but
It's the best I could do." She laughed
gladly, more than repaid by the look in
her companion's fa-e. "Now get me
some lunch. I'm fairly starved."
Big George, when he had fully
grasped the situation, became the boss
fisherman on the instant. Before the
others had reached the cookhouse he
was busied in laying out his crews and
distributing his gear. The impossible
had happened; victory was in sight;
the fish were running, lie cared to
know no more.
That night the floors of the flsh dock
groaned beneath a weight of silver
Bided salmon piled waist high to a tall
man. All through the cool, dim lit
hours the ranks of 'hinese butchers
hacked and slit and slashed with swift,
sure, tireless strokes, while the great
building echoed hollowly to the clank
of machines ar.d the hissing sighs of
the soldering furnaces,,
It seemed to Boyd that be had never
felt such elation as during the days
that followed. He trod upon air; his
head was in the clouds. He Joked with
his men. Inspiring them with his own
good humor and untiring energy. He
was never idle save during the odd
hours that he snatched for sleep.
While the daily output was disap

from the prospect that his pack would

Marsh was in a fiuo fury. As far as
possible his subordinates avoided him.
On the third day after Boyd's deliv
erance Constantino sought him out in
company with several of the native
fishermen, translating their demand to
be paid for the fih they had caught.
"Can't they wait until the end of the
week?" Emerson inquired. ,
"No! They got no money they got
no grub. They say little baby is hon

Boyd tore a leaf from his notebook
and wrote a few, words on it. telling
the men to present it at the office. As
Constantlne was about to leave he
called to him:
"Wait! I want to talk with you."
The breed halted.
"How long have you known Mr.

"Do you like him?"

"Nothing. Only if you ever have
any trouble with Mr. Marsh I may be
able to help you. I like you, and I
don't like him."
The breed grunted unintelligibly and
was about to leave when Boyd reached
forth suddenly and plucked the fel
low's sheath knife from its scabbard.
With a startled cry, Constantine whirl
ed, his face convulsed, his nostrils
dilated like those of a frightened
But Emerson merely fingered the In
dian's weapon carelessly, remarking:
"That is a curious knife you have.
I have noticed it several times."
He eyed him shrewdly for a moment,
then handed the blade back with a
smile. Constantlne slipped it into its
place and strode away without a word.
It was considerably later in the day
when Boyd discovered the Indians to
whom he had given the note talking
excitedly on the dock. Seeing Constan

a silver dollar in his palm with the

It was evident that even Constan
tine was vaguely distrustful.
Another native extended a coin, say
ing: "We want money like this."
Boyd took the piece and examined it,
whereupon a light broke upon him.
The coin was stamped with the initials
of one of the old fishing companies,
and he instantly recognized a ruse
practiced in the north during the days
of the first trading concerns. It had
leen the custom of these companies to
pay their Indians in coins bearing
their own impress and to refuse all
other specie at their posts, thus com
pelling the natives to trade at com
pany stores. SeeTpg that his words
carried no conviction, Emerson gave
up at last, saying:
"If the company store won't take the
money I'll sell you whatever you need
from the commissary. We are not go
ing to have any trouble over a little
thing like this."
He marched the natives in a body to

Furrounded during the night, nets had

his men. The giant, iu no amiable
mood, had returned for re-enforcements,
stating that the situation was becom

of the desertion of the natives, he
burst into profanity, then armed him

Boyd, now thoroughly alarmed, took a
launu and sped up the river to Cher
ry house in the hope that she could
prevail upon her own recruits to re
turn. He found the girl ready to accom

bark when Chakawana came running
from the house as if in sudden fright.
"Where you go:" she asked ber mis.
"I am poinsr to the Indian village.

"No, no! I no stop here alone. I go

"But, Chakawana. what is the mat

"Yes." Chakawana nedded her pret

"The yacht! What yacht?"
"Mr. Wayland's yacht. He is mak

Cherry in a strained voice.
"Why didn't you tell me?"
"I don't know; I didn't think you
would be interested."
"So she can't wait? She Is so eager

6he gave him no time for speech.
"It seems that you wanted to pose as
a hero before her and employed us to
build up your triumph. Well, I am
glad we failed; I'm glad Willis Marsh
showed you how very helpless you are.
Let her come to your rescue now. I'm

Emerson gazed at her in astonish
ment, the outburst had been so unex
pected, but he realized that he owed
her too much to take offense.
"Miss Wayland will take no band In
my affairs. I doubt if she will even
realize what this trouble is all about,"
he said, a trifle stiffly. "I suppose I
did want to play the hero, and I dare
say I did use yen and the others, but
you knew that all the time."
"Why won't she help you?" queried
Cherry. "Doesn't she care enough
about you? Doesn't she know enough
to understand your plight?"
"Yes, but this is my fight, and I've
got to make good without her assist
ance. She isn't the sort to marry a
failure, and she has left me to make
my own way. Besides, she would not
dare go contrary to her father's wishes
even if she desired. That is part of her
education. Oh, Wayne Wayland's op
position Isn't all I have had to over
come. I have had to show his daugh

she h:rtes weakness."
"And you thiDk that woman loves

She doesn't know what love means.
When a woman loves, do you Imagine
she cares for money or fame or suc

think I'd stop to ask my father if I
might marry him or wait for my lover
to prove himself worthy of me? Do

I'd become what he was, and I'd fight

A SPECIFIC BLOOD IMPURITY
Catarrh is a deep-seated blood dis
ease, one which no amount of local
treatment will ever permanently cure.
The beneficial effects of washes,
sprays, inhalations, etc., are only
temporary, and when left off the old
condition returns, because the Llocx'
is infected with catarrhal matter and
impurities. This impure condition
of the circulation irritates and in
flames the delicate mucous mem
branes and tissues and produces the
well known symptoms of ringin;
noises in the head and cars, mucus in
the throat, headaches, watery eyes,
partial deafness, sore throat, general
impairment of health, etc. This con
dition will remain, growing worse as
long as the catarrhal matter is al
lowed to remain in the blood. Being
a specific blood impurity, there is only
one way to cure Catarrh, and that is
to purify the blood. Nothing equals
S. S. S. for this purpose. It attacks
the disease at its head in the circu
lationand by thoroughly renovating
the blood and
cleansing it of all
makes n perma
nent and lasting
cure of the dis
ease. For forty
3-ears S. S. S. has
as the best blood
purifier, and the thousands of cases of
Catarrh it has cured is proof that it is
the very medicine needed by those
who suffer with this trouble. Rook on
