After the noon meal ho lay 011 Ida
blanket under the hemlock shelter,
smoking and lazily watching Injun
Charley busy over the making of a
blreh bark canoe.
So Idly Intent wns Thorpo on this
piece of construction that he did not
notice the approach of two men from
the down stream side. They were
short, alert men, plodding along with
the knee-bent persistency of the wood
walker, dressed In broad hats, llauuel
shirts, coarse trousers tucked In high
laced cruisers" and carrying each a
bulging meal sack looped by a cord
across the shoulders and chest.' Moth
were armed wljh long slender scalers
rules. The llrst Intimation Thorpe re
ceived of tho presence of these two men
was the sound of their voices.
"Hello, Charley!" said one of them.
"What you doing here? Ain't seen you
since the Sturgeon district."
".Mak 'inn canoe," replied Charley
"So I see. Hut what do you expect to
get In this tiod forsaken country?"
"Heaver, muskrat, mink, otter."
"Trapping, eh?" tho man gazed keen
ly at Thorpe's recumbent llgure. "Who's
tho other fellow?"
Thorpe held his breath, then exhaled
It In a long sigh of relief.
"Illm white man," Injun Charley
was replying. "III111 hunt too. lie

The land looker ar5se lazily nnd
sauntered toward the group.
"IlowdyV" ho drawled. "Got any
"How aro you?" replied one of the
scale! s, eying him sharply and tender
ing, his Ipouch. Thorpe tilled his pipe
deliberately and returned It with n
heaVy lidded glance of thanks. To all
appearances he was one of the lazy,
shiftless hunters of the backwoods.
Seized with an Inspiration, he said:
"What sort of chances Is1 they at your
camp for n little Hour? Me and Char
ley's about out. I'll bring you meat, or
I'll make 3-011 boys moccasins. I got
some good buckskin."
It was the usual proposition.
"Pretty good, I guess Come up and
see," advised tho scaler. "The crew's
right behind us."
"I'll send Charley," drawled Thorpe.
"I'm busy now makln' traps." Ho
waved his pipe, calling attention to the
pine and rawhide deadfalls.
They chatted a few moments. Then
two wagons creaked lurching by, fol
lowed by Uftecn or twenty men. The
last of these, evidently tho forcmnn.
was Joined by the two scalers.
Injun Charley was setting nbout the

ever, to avoid the necessity. Ho set
about 11 rough estimate of tho tlmbes.
One evening Just at sunset Thorpe
was helping the Indian shape his craft.
The two men bent there at their task,
the dull glow of evening falling upon '
them. Behind them the knoll stood J
out In picturesque relief against the 1
darker pines. The river rushed by ,
with a never ending roar and turmoil.

In a few moments he was whipping

first the Indian's stolid countenance
seemed a trille doubtful. After n time

In the course of tho evening the boy
approached the older men's camp and.
with charming dlllidonce, asked per

"I Just do love this!" he cried again

so fervently that the other men present

suddenly, "and I guess I'll slay tho rest
