—e CHAPTER X—Continued O. —IS' — "No! Tie him up and put him in the shack and get our stuff to the canoe I I'll get riff of the girl!" The die was cast. Every minute at the post spelled danger. But Steele now had an excuse tor refusing to take Kose La flamme to the railroad. "You understand, David? Keep your knife out of him. Your turn will «orne on the snow. Now get the canoe!" David carried Laflamme into the •back,' and went for the canoe. Returning to the girt, trembling In the dark, Steele said ; "It was he. David knocked him out, but he's not hurt. Ws mart get away at once." With an Impulsive movement. Rose Laflamme found Steele's neck with tier arms and kissed him wildly. "But," explained the harassed American, "we've got to travel fast; they'll follow os—we can't take you!" "You mean you'll not take me now?" gasped the girl in her despair. "We'll have to run the portages, break our backs to beat the Indians he'll send after us. If you go, they'll get us!" protested Steele. "Take me. take me with you!" she moaned. "Am I not beautiful, beeg American? Don't leave me here!" Then Brent Steele gambled: "What was Pierre doing down river?" "I weel tell you In the canoe." she parried, and he crunched his teeth In bis chagrin. "Wheu we are In the canoe 1 will tell you thlnga—things you nevalre dream of," ahe urged, "I know all." She would exchange her Informa tion at a price—her freedom ; and that price Steele would not pay. But It was necessary to get her back to the bouse. * "All rlgut," he said, "go and get «0 me heavy clothes, and be at the log landing In an hour. Don't make any noise. We don't want them to find Laflamme until morning. Now be careful !" With a low cry, she again circled Steele's neck with her arms, kissed him and disappeared. In an hour he and David would be far down the lake on their way to Neplgoq house. She had Intended making a catspnw of him to escape from Ogoke and Steele wasted no èympathy on her. He wondered whether, on finding herself tricked, she would arouse the post or take to her bed. feigning ignorance of the whole business. And he also wondered whether If Denise St. Onge ever learned of this night's work at Ogoke, she would he llere that every act and word of his had teen In her service. Through the night, the churn-swish, chnrn-swlsh of the paddles of David and Steele ceaselessly marked off the miles, for with the sun might come a head wind, which meant fighting for every foot while their pursuers gained on them with a four or six-man crew. Time and again through the long hours, the keen eyes of David alone bad sensed through the murk in which they traveled, the menace of a rocky point or the threat of bowlders, awash, square In their course. "How far have we come?" asked Steele, laying his paddle on the gun wale to stretch his stiffened arms. "Wal, dees point ees vert far up de lak'. Keen two hour we hit de Inlet." "Good l If that Is so, we're thirty miles ahead of them." • The OJibway shook his head. "We tak' no chance—we travel lak' h— 1 !" On shore the tea-pall was soon bolt ing, while David and Steele over hauled their scant supplies. There were barely beans, bacon and flour to do a week, and Neplgon lake was two weeks' hard travel. It meant shoot ing their way out, unless the fish would bite, for they bad given their net to MicheL . "Let's have a look at the old Mann licher," said Steele as David watched the bacon sputtering In the pan. "We may need her before we get out of this mess. I was a fool to stop there. I might have—" He had thrown the holt-handie up and back, when his face sobered. The startled eyes which met the Inquiring gaze of the man at the fire drew a quick: "W'at you see —ghost?" Making no reply, Steels sprang ts the canoe, tore the lashings from a bag and fumbled with Its contents— «ben emptied the bag on the beach. Taking David's rifle from the canoe, he opened th# breach. "Both guns empty!" he said in dis may. 'They've got our sheila—two boxes in the bag! Not a shot left cleaned ouf Î" The white man looked long Into the Immobile face of the Indian. "If they catch they don't, we can't even shoot our way home. IPs fish—or starve!" The OJibway squatted on hts heels and resumed bis frying. "Wal, boss." he said stoically, "we have beeg feed dla morals'—den paddle lak b— I!" For two hours the canoe was driven as only seas one d men can push maple paddl faced forty miles of th* swift Rouge before they turned off on the portage to the Jackflsh.

By GEORGE MARSH Author of To««. olth.Tr.tr "Th. Whelp« at cfa. Wotf ' (Capyriskt br th« Pana Pnblltolae Cb.) <W. N. U Same) So, wltnout stopping at noon, the flee ing canoe pushed on up the Rouge, and not nntil dusk settled on the val ley. was It turned to the shore. There, unloading the weary crew carried boat and outfit hack Into the "bush" against the possible chance of their camp smoke being seen at day light by those at their heel a Dawn found them at their galley slavery with another back-breaking day to live through before the clear ing of the Jackflsh portage would open up ahead. Unless they were run down shortly, that night the fleeing canoe would ride the Jackflsh. and they had won. They were rounding a bend below a backwater when the man In the bow lifted his hand and pointed. In the shallows, not fifty yards away, stood a yearling moose. "Meat to take us to Neplgon !" groaned Steele. David slapped the water with the flat of his paddle. "Marche, you!" he cried, "or de cutfroat bebln' us weel get yon." "One shell would have got him !" said Steele, ruefully, as the moose slowly turned and disappeared. "Wal, I not wast' de last shot on moose," and the Indian held up a shining cartridge for the inspection of his friend. "Where In the devil did you get that?" cried the a maxed and delighted stern man. * "I fin' eet een de grub bag." "And you never told me! Is that fair, David?" "Wal. eet I tell you, you fire eet at de moose." "Why not? We would have red meat then, to Neplgon." The OJibway shook his head sober ly: "Daveed save eet tor one of La flamme's men." To Steele, who felt now that sun down would find them at the Jackflsh portage; that their-pursuers were far In the rear;,, the words of David sounded unduly ominous. It was pos sible that some of the Indians on their trail could travel the forty miles of broken, bush-grown river shore In a night and a day, but he doubted it. So he laughed loudly at the square back of his friend when, an hour be fore sunset, they landed at Jackflsh portage. "Well, we did It, old boy !" cried Steele, slapping the knotted shoulder of the grinning David. "Now we'll take her all over In one trip or throw this museum stuff away. Can we do It?" David nodded. "De carry to de lak' ees short. I tak' the canoe an' de Injun stuff. You tak' de rest." * "Man alive! It will go four hun dred—with the boat" But David was busy slinging hla tump-llne to the largest of the bags and made no answer.- : —-: So, after further protest, which the Indian brushed aside, Steele packed the three hundred pounds of bags on the OJlbway's wide back, and on top balanced the canoe, and the thick bow legs of the red son of Anak moved steadily up the trail. With the dusk, the canoe was In the Jackflsh and the two men gripped bands In mutual congratulation. They had set Laflamme's gang a pace over a hundred miles of lake and river which they would not soon forget. Dropping downstream they camped In the thick spruce, back from the river, and for the first time in two days, baked cornbread for their beans and bacon, and feasted. Beside a fire which the scrub masked at fifty feet, two men. at ease with the world, pulled on after-supper pipes. With a little luck In the pike lakes of the lower Jackflsh, they could eke ont their scanty food supply; and If. as seemed certain, they had left their pursuers hopelessly behind, the shell In David's rifle might bring them meat. _ _ ___ he toy : 'Wl man Piff od de Pelican dMld now I «* no «a« 3 t0 "Boss," said the OJibway, after a period of silence which was character istic, "I nevalre tell you w'y I bunt dis Laflamme." From a revery In which Denise St Onge again played to him on her Hill of Dreams, far In the north, Steele turned with Interest to the speaker. "No, I should like to hear." "Bet was manee year back—ten. twelve. Dis Laflamme trade wid de 'Jlhway np Lo#' lak* way. My brod der work for heem. He sen' my brod der an' 'nod er man to mak' cache on de Pelican riviere.

Steele smoked In silence, waiting for the mood of his Mead to change, when th* reet would be told. At length.

"Whatr "My brodder crawl to de riviere an* drown heeeel'—before he starve." "David," said the man across the Are, "I want to apologise for keeping you off that snake.

"I had hard fight not to ksel heem— but you're de boss," added the loyal OJibway. "You'll have your opportunity this winter—never fear." "Mebbe; tut dey may watt for us tomorrow at de Frying Pan." "Yon still think that some of them may have been sent overland to cut us off?" The stars still hung above the Jack list), although there was a hint of dawn In the graying east when a canoe slid swiftly through the shad owe on the way to the Frying Fan rapids. Once over the carry around this roaring cauldron of white-water, Into the spray of whose flumes and cross currents no man. rag or whits, had ridden a canoe and come through, and the two friends could snap their fingers at Laflarome's pursuing pack of wolves, for thirty miles of hard running river, from which they would "Wsl," said the cool half-breed, "eet I hunt canoe traveling dla way from Ogoke, dat ees Were I sen' dem." "But they won't have bad time to get there." "Mebee not. Tomorrow we see." And the red stoic rolled himself la his blanket. s s s fore them. As they paddled toward the carry above the thundering Frying Pan, Steele asked* the Indian whose eyes ceaselessly searched the shore below them ; "Have these rapids ever been run?" "No ! Dey are ver' bad een some plsce," muttered David. "Could we run them?" The Indian shook his head. "Then why did you insist on our having onr setting poles handy ?" David did not answer. "You're wasting your Urns watching that portage," laughed Steele. Still the OJibway Ignored the man In the stern. Then the scoffer sud denly wondered why the bowman waa edging the nose of the boat, as they drifted, away from the carry. A thrill shot through him. Had David aeen something suspicious?" The boat was fast approaching easy rifle range. With his paddle buried, the Indian, simulating leisurely ac tlon, and followed by Steele, was rap Idly adding to the distance between the canoe and the shore. But to the straining eyes of the American the scrub told nothing. "What Is It? I can't make anything out." demanded Steele. Back from the tow came: "Keep on paddle; dey are dere!" The worda froze Steele where he kneeled. On drifted the craft ever edging farther and farther from the ambush, Stiff as stone knelt the man In the bow. ontthruat arms rigid, eyes an chored to the beach, wrists alone in motion. Hunched In the stern, fingers fiercely gripping his paddle, Steele, marveling at the OJlbway's nerve, waited for his order. A hundred yards more and the suck of the first chute would draw them Into the Fry ing Pan. The boat was now passing the portage, yet the rifles on the shore were silent Then Steele un deratood. The plan was to drown them. (TO Bn CONTINUED.) Realizing Hi e Profite He walked Into s brokerage office several months ago, deposited flO.OOO snd bought some stocks on the Arm's advice.

BUTLER, Member American Inatltuta of Electri cal Engineer« and Inatltuta of Radio Engineers. Changing conditions make new radio circuits necessary. A few years ago the single circuit and ultra audlon receivers were satisfactory and were capable of bringing In dis tant stations with volume. Today the same sets cannot be used, except In Isolated districts away from broad casting stations, due to their broad tuning qualities. The receiver of the earlier day Is no longer satisfactory for other rea sons, principally on account of Its squealing and radiating qualities and because Its tone quality I» poor and distorted. At the last radio confer ence In Washington It was agreed that In the near future the use of radiating receivers would have to be ended, even If It became necessary to pass a fed eral law to accomplish that result Today, with modern laboratory standard apparatus available, and with sets of better design, the quality attains the standard demanded by lovers of music, The R-4 circuit, as developed for use In a new receiving set, is a good example of present day design. The most popular form of circuit was selected—the five tube tuned radio frequency—and by the use of the lat type of condensers, colla, and transformers, together with Improve menta In the circuit, produced a re cel ver that Is capable of tuning through Interference, bringing In sta tlons from a distance on the loud speaker, and surpassing many re celvers for all around performance and quality of tone, To 8hut ©ut Stray Currants. Noteworthy of the Improvements In t j, e circuit are two by-paas fixed con dengt . rs . between the primary of each n f the first two radio frequency trans former* and the filament. This serve* by-pass and keep stray radio fre qneiicy currents out of the rest of the wiring, and stabilises the circuit A large condenser 1* placed across the "B" battery terminals to reduce noise* and howls due to long leads or low voltage. Refinements In apparatus Include the new square wound toroid coll, wlttt the new straight line frequency condensers which provide shielding of electromagnetic lines of force, as well an keep the Instrument duatproof, a mighty Important detail. The toroidal colls eliminate the spraying effect of magnetic lines of force within the set proper, and re move the principal troghear that radio engineers have been working for years •<>•**• The colls have self-con '«toed fields that make pickup of stray **rr«at Impossible.

The rheostats should each be of six ohms capacity for the use of UV 201-A or C 301-A tubes, and the grid leak R3 should he two megohms. When using the new UX amplifier tubes, break the grid return of the last transformer and Insert "C" battery of voltage recommended by the manu facturer. The first rheostat Is used as a Volume control, to moderate -dgnal strength to the desired extent. For most satisfactory operation, the cor sect setting of this control may be determined by trial, and then allowed to remain without further adjust nient complete th# set The terminal* of the radio fre Tn addition to The apparatus named shove, you wilt need five socket*, a 7 by 24-lncb panel, baseboard or sub panel, wire, screws, solder, etc., to quency transformers are unmarked In the diagram. The first coll Is a coupler, with two taps taken off for long and short aerials. Both taps are marked "A" and each should be tried and the aerial connected to the one that gives the beat résulta.

The tuner for this set Is made from any good three-circuit tuner about 4 Inches In diameter. The secondary consists of ten turns of No. 12 D.C.O. wire, the primary of four turns of tho same else wire, the two being medium coupled. The tickler has 20 turns of No. 20 D.C.C. wire. The secondary Is tuned with a .0006 mfd. condenser as shown by the V V ? 'p i 9 ^sw 4 i m\ ME VIE ♦ • • • JL Diagram Showing Circuit of the Short Wave Set • sketch. Another Important point to note Is In winding the tickler. To oh tain the best results care should he taken to see that all turns are wound In the same direction and an even number of turns on each side of th« shaft. This aet will receive approximately from 2,000 to 10,000 kilocycles, or fron 40 to 190 meters. However, every aet is different and In order to check yom maximum and minimum wave-lengthi you should obtain Information from the standard frequency station as tc when they send test programs, snd with these signals you will be able to tell exactly what wave-length your sei will cover.

Straight Line Tuning Making Bid for Favoi The coming of the straight line fre quency condenser and the later ar rival of the S. L. F. dial converter hat brought the subject of straight line tuning very much to the fore. Tto< choice* between the two Instrument« rests with the radio fan when be de cldes to simplify the toning of bit receiving set. condensei of the concentric plate type will solve the problem of obtaining simpllcltj In tuning by an electrical method and it Is conceded that the best waj of solving an electrical difficulty 1« by an e lectric al cha nge. The 8. L. F dial will afford one dial visibility and greatly simplify ths tuning of short wave stations, and wliereln a change of condensers would entail too much work, may be used. It must be remembered, however, that the 8. L. F. converter di«U la a me chantes! device and therefore will not entirely solve an electrical problem. To Avoid Body Capacity A good general rule where the ob ject is to avoid body capacity la to always make that terminal of the to st rainent to which yonr hand comes the closest when toning, at or near ground potential. As most circuits are tuned by s variable condenser across a cod, the rotor plates should be the end connected to the filament circuit. The hand, In effect, comes closest to these plates since the rotor plates connect to the shaft and the shaft carries the dial.
