THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 7, 1012.
Th Rd Tor.
CUMMIN'S' word of the school
at Churchill had rut a new
and thrilling tboucht Into
Jan'a bead, and always with
that tboosrht be coupd visions of the
grrowln Mellsse. This ywir the nrhool
would bv at Churchill and the next at
York factory, aud aftpr that it mleht
be gone forever, so that when Metisse
prew up there would he none nearer
than what Jao looked upon an tbe oth
er end of the world. Why could not be
fro to school for MelWse and store np
treasures which in time he might turn
over to her?
The scheme was a colotrl one, by all
odd the Urgent that had ever entered
Into his dreams of what life held for
hitn. It was not unfit the first cold
chills of apiiro'icliins winter crept down
from the north and east that he told
Cummins of his intention.
Once his mind was nettled Jan lost
no tlrne in putting his plana into ac
tion. Mukee knew the trail to Church

For a time Cummins made no move i
or sound; then he drew the boy bark '
into the caom, and fr jiu the little ging- '.
haul covered hoi lu the corner he took
a buckskin bug.
"You are going to Churchill for Me
lius and for ber," he nld In a voice
pitched low that it might not awaken I
the baby. "Take this." j
Jau drew a step back. !

His teeth ftleamed In smile, but It !
lasted only for an instant Cummins'
face darkened, and be caught him
firmly, almost roughly, by tbe arm.
"Thea Jan Thoreau will never come
back to Melisse." he exclaimed with
finality. "You are going to Churcblll
to be at school and not to work witb
your band. They are sending you.
Do you unt'.ersund. boy? TbeyT
There was a fierce tremor la bis voice.
"Which will It be? Will you take the
bag; or will you never ajaia come back
to Lac Bainr
Dumbly Jan reached ont and took
tbe buckskin pouch. A dull flush
burned la bis cheeks. Cnmmins look
ed la wonder upon tbe strange look
that cam into bis eyes.
"I pay back this gold to yon and Me
llsse a hundred times:" be cried tense
ly. "I awear lt an' I swear that Jao

Unconsciously, with the buckskin bag

out bis other arm to the violin hang
leg against tbe wall. Cummins turned
to look. When he faced biin again tbe
boy's arm bad fallen to bis ride and
bis cheeks were white. The next day
It was a Ions winter for Cummins
and Mellsse. It was a longer one for
Jan. He bad taken with bim m letter
from the factor at Lac liain to the fac
tor at Churchill, and be found quarters
with the chief clerk's assUtaot at the
post a young, red faced man named
M icDonald, vh bad come over on the

The schwil opened tn November, and
Jan found hlm.self one of twenty or
so gathered there from 4'.'KK square
miles of wilderness. Two white
youths and a half breed had come
from the Ktauney. tbe factor at Nel
Fon House sent ufi his son. and froui
the upper waiers of the Little Church
ill there came three others.
From the tirst Jan's music found
him a premier place in the interest of
the tutor sent over by t lie company,
lie studied by nijlit as well as by
day, and by the end of the second
mouth his only competitor was the
youth from Nelson House. His great-
est source of knowledge was not the 1
teucher. but MacDouald. There was
in him no Inherent desire for the learn
ing of the people to the south: that he
was storing away, like a faithful ma
chine, for the use of Mellsse IP'.t
MuclJonald gave hirn that for whu h
his soul longed a
picture of life as it ,
existed in the wonderful world be

youth was li'led with nn Immense

said. "She must not live forever in a

Tbe post's trap lines bad been sbort-
tirely, and the reat ti-ht beuan. Wil
Hams asseuibled his n.en and told tlietn
bow that same battle bad lieen fought
nearly two decades before. For sixty
miles about the post every rbin aud
wigwam that floated a red tin je must be
visited and burned if the occupants
were dead. In learning whether life
or death existed in these places lay the
peril for those wbo undertook the task.
It was a dangerous mission. It meant
fAcine a death from which those who
listened to the old factor bhrank with
dread, yet wlieo the call catue they re
sponded to a man.
Cummins and Jan ate their last sup
per together, with Melisse sitfius te- j
tween them and wondering at their si- j
lence. When It was over the two went

Showers tonight or Thursday. Not much change in temperature.
Hlodtrati'Iy low pressures prevail
from California and the southern
plateau- states northeastward to the
upper lakes, and scattered showers
and thunderstorms have occurred on
the eastern Rocky mountain slope and
in tho central valleys and the lake re
gion. A further slight rise in tempera
ture is also noted in the upper Missis
sippi valley and the upper lake region.
The pressures are highest, though not
decidedly above the normal, on the
Atlantic slope and in the northern
Rocky mountain sections. Prcause of
the low air pressure immediately to
the westward, showers are indicated
for this vicinity tonight or Thursday.
