Tbe next mornln? Cummins stood
to tbe door and said:
i "How warm tne sun rsi ius u
and Ice are going. Jan. It's spring.
Well house tbe sledges today and i
begin feeding tbe dogs on fish."
Each daT thereafter the sun rose
I earlier, tbe day was longer and the air
I was warmer, and wltb tbe warmth
i there now came the aweet scents of
the buddine earth and the myriad
sounds of tbe deep, unseen life of the
forest awakening from Its long slum
ber In its bed of snow.
Tbe post fell hack Into Its old ways
Now and then a Tlsltor came In from
ont of the forest, but be remained for
only a day or two. taking back Into
tbe solitude wltb blm a few of tbe
oecessaries of life. Williams was busy
preparing his books for the coming of
the company's chief aeent from Lon

the factor, had a good deal of extra
time on bis bands.

there settled a deep grief. The
changes of spring and summer, bring
ing with them all that this desolate
world held of warmth and beauty, till
ed him with tbe excruciating pain of
his great grief, as if the woman had
died but yesterday.
At last, his gaunt frame thinned by
sleepless nights and days of mental
torture, he said that the company's
t,siness was cal'inz him to Churchill

hay. He left Melisse ln care of Jan.
!in(j tlp cjiid set rued to recognize tue
wiu u Cummins came back from
Fort Chn.-ehill ln the autumn he
brought with him a pack full ot things
for Melisse. including new books and
papers, for which he had spent a share
of his season's earnings. As he was
j froeing these treasures from
j wrapping of soft caribou skin,
j ,an .lnj Melisse both looking on. he
stopped suddenly and glanced from his
: knees up at the boy.
1 "They're wonderinc over at Church-
j m what became of the missionary who
left with the mail. Jan. They say he
w::s last seen at the Ktawney."
"And not here?" replied Jan quickly.
"Not that they know of." said Cum
mins, still keeping his eyes on the
hoy. "The man who drove him never
cor back to Churchill. They're won
dering where the driver went too. A
company officer has gone

possible he may
rome over to Lac Bain. I don't believe
i he'll find the missionary."
i "Neither do I," said Jan quite coolly.
"He is probably dead, and the wolves
; and foxes have eaten him before this

i Cummins resumed his task of ott-
' packing, and among the books which
' he brought forth tbere were two which
