TALES OF TEN TRAVELERS; PROFESSOR DETRIUS MORAINE. T BD4AB U WAIMW. tnrmnt.lil.UB4. All rltata reaerreaj W bad been dUcuwlnf our various xperlencea In mounUlnoua regions, whea w noticed that the fact of on of our number waa wreathed In a re- mlnlacentlal imlle. So familiar had we aii bMomi with each other's moods, that It waa hut a moment before placid wave of alienee stole aoftly In UDon the choppy aurf of dlscunlve chatter; and, settling ourselves com fortaJjr In our various places, we lis tened to the ohronlo traveler's pleasant tale. Mora than a casual stance would have been required to make sure wheth er he was an old young man or i young old man, as be dismounted from hla carriole and entered the common room of the little Inn or station of Or melm, standing lust above the plctur- anua Vacrmofoi waterfall, near the head of the wild and wondrous Roms dal. In Norway. His step was light enough and a cer tain eagerness In his manner suggested youthfulness. On the other band, his shoulders were rounded, hla chin ex tended outward curiously and his hands and face had a marked physical habit of unconscious proximity In moments of abstraction which betokened advanc Ing years. Though his clothing was of fine tex ture. It fitted him illy. His double-vls-ored traveling oap almost touched his nose before and his shoulders behind, which was unusually large and set upr on a slender neck.the grotesque appear ance. In profile, of a huge beak; while the half-obscured glasses upon his nose aided in intensifying the momentary seeming that his bright, deep-set eyes were those of a very cunning bird. Added to these peculiarities was that of a face spare In flesh and strongly molded. It was of a singular grayish tint, and without trace of moustache or beard. Even the scalp in front of and above his large, outstanding ears was bare and gray, and only a few un evenly trimmed strands of hair, of an ochreish-ashen color, floated tremu lously above his wrinkled collar be hind. He went straight to the dagbok, or daybook that curious receptacle at all Norwegian posting stations pf tourists' names, complaints, flippant observa tions ajid occasionally witty sayings- wrote with a ierky movement and.wlth out remark to landlord or serVants, plumped himself Into a chair, crossed one leg upon the other and his two upturned palms, and sat thus for a lit tle time nervously swinging his bony limb, while looking through , the open door out upon the frozen heights of the pathless Mldtfjeld which lies to the east of Ormelm. "Odd character that;" whispered my companion, a genial English literator, whose acquaintance I had made at Molde and with whom, though it was late in the season, I was"lelsurely trav eling through Norway. We had formed a habit of studying passing tourists and endeavoring to place them in the social or professional category before their identity was re vealed. Sometimes we added zest to the idle proceeding by a trifling wager. "What is he?" I returned cautiously; "principal of a female seminary, an old bachelor broken loose from a 'personal ly conducted' party of tourists, or a mis er astonished at finding him giving up a little 01 nis noara In travel?" "Neither. I'll lay you twenty kroner even, he is some scientist wearing him self to skin ana bone over an undemon Btrated theory." "Donej if you'll name either his pro fession or tneory." My friend made excuse to walk round the newcomer as If in the im patient exercise so common in the long waits for ponies and carts at these Norwegian -mountain stations, and af ter regarding him closely returned with the Quiet remark: "Geologist or glacial action crank, sure. Why, if that man could com mand the physical power to do so, he would have every mountain and fjeld In Norway overturned and standing on Its head for inspection before morn ing!" I sauntered to the day book and saw be had written in it simply the words, "Detrius Moraine." "Oh, yes, of course;" Insisted my friend when I had announced this dis covery. 'Professor Detrius Moraine;' and if you had it all, and if you had it all. It would be Professor Detrius Mo raine, F. R. A. S., P. C. S., P. R. Q. S., etc., etc. Indeed you would find him a sort of an all around 'Fellow1 who be longs to every association and society on earth for poking, prodlng and pene trating earth, sea and air for the se crets of the immutable, And especially to wrangle with every other 'Fellow' who has poked, prodded, penetrated and published before him." "All right," I answered oheerlly. "We'll get acquainted with htm and worry him at supper." While I was saying this, the professor squirmed around suddenly in his chair and began speaking fluently in Nor wegian to the stocky and stolid her ' bar gerer or Innkeeper. "How far is it to the top of the Mldt fjeld T" he asked snappishly. ; "Maybe twenty English miles." - "Can I get up there the -first thing in the morning?" . Here the innkeeper blew, off a great whistle of surprise at his impetuous guest's ignorance. : "' , "In three days, If you climb well;" he finally answered, looking suspicious ly at his guest's thin limbs. - "Confound Norway, anyhow!" retort ad the professor, springing to' his feet and walking Impatiently back and forth through the little room. - "Why confound Norway anyhow!" re torted the landlord with: some spirit. "If the fields and mountains were not here, you would not come;" which burst of ponderous logic se please Its author that .Ha triumphantly, resumed whit-' tllng upon some outlandish pine orna- ment for the front or nis roaosiuo inn "Are thore huts, eablns, shelter or nu man beings on the field?" demanded the nrofaasor anxiously. "No. Below them a few miles are the saeters only." "For the Lord's sake whnt are sae ters? I I can't fix the etymology of that word." "Saeters are saeters, In Norway;" was the sententious reply. "Men, women, anybody In them?" "Just the saeter stria" "In heaven's name, what do saeter girls do?" "They go there with the herds, In the summer: care for the milk; make the butter and cheese, and come back to the valleys when the winter sets In. Some have already come down! sir." "No fathers or mothers or brothers with them?" "What for?" renllod the landlord looking up scornfully from his whit tllng. "They are needed to gather the grass snd at the work In the fjeldu at home." "Do you mean to tell me that young women mere girls remain up there In that barren wilderness all summer alone?" "That Is right, sir. They wish to go. Lars' sister, who has been In some for eign country for years, and has become a great scholar, came back here this summer, sir, and Is the furthest saeter on the fjeld, only for love of the old sae ter life." "And who Is Lars, pray?" "The skydsgut (postboy) that brought you, sir." "Why, I must be a week or two on the fields! Where am I to sleep? I can't take your Inn with me!" "On the snow or In the saeter, sir.' "In the saeter!" "Tea; the saeter girl will make a bed for you beside her own." "Beside her own!" "Why not? Is that less comfortable than the Ice or the snow?" Professor Detrius Moraine did not reply, but we saw that he had been shocked. Abstract science usually takes no ac count of the amenities of life; but here was scientist If he was a scientist who actually recoiled from one of the most innocent. customs of the coun try. "I think you would win as to his being an old bachelor," said my friend thoughtfully. "Perhaps I lose as to his vocation. I am rather afraid so, for a genuine hide-bound scientist would sleep without a murmur in a pig-sty in order to elucidate a pet theory." The professor took a turn about the storhaus and stables and finally came back to the Imperturbable landlord. "You can furnish me a guide or a man or two who could build me a tern porary shelter on the fjeld, and cook my food for a few days?" "There are no men at Ormelm." "Can I not even. have a guide?" "Not unless Lars will go." . "And Lars will bring me to. his sis ter and leave me In the saeter, as you call It, alone with her?" "So it will be." "Bah!" he exclaimed, relapsing Into English. "This Is Infamous!" The, Innkeeper could, understand enough from this Inflection and gesture to realize that an objurgation had been uttered, and he resented It in his sullen reply: we cannot cnange our country or our people for every one who passes by. You deserve no guide fpom Ormeim; or, you should be let go to perish in autumn tempests! "Tut, tut! No offense; no offense!1 returned the professor, seeming at last to realize that his cherished project was at the mercy of his own behavior, In a land where flunkyism Is unknown, where little profit is expected; and where all service to strangers is given by favor rather than by command. "The truth Is, landlord," he continued in a conciliatory and almost confiden tial manner, "I am a student of of things. I'd rather meet the devil than a woman, while I am at work. Indeed quite so at any time. Blab, gab, poke, pother, fuss, muss, litter, titter! Why. it drives me mad! The landlord with staring eyes sym pathetically pressed his own head with his hand, and nodded as though he be lieved Mm literally. "I've seen nothing but women, wo men, women in Norway; and its un strung me. It worried me to think of going up there and being shut up with a woman for two weeks!" "It will be under the avalanche If for so long!" Interrupted the landlord. anut up wun a woman for two weeks,"contlnued the professor, scientist-like paying no attention whatever to the simplest and most important facts confronting him, "with her flut ter and putter and her eyeing and prying. Lord! I come all this distance to work out to work out!" "The saeter gljl will hate you just as sufficiently;" broke In the landlord stoutly. This was a ney view of an old theory to Professor Detrius Moraine. He seemed at first to relish it; but it piqued him, too. He removed his glass es, burnished them furiously with his handkerchief, glared at myself and companion who- endeavored tq appear Innocently unconscious of his vexation!). and Anally exclaimed. rather curtly: "umpni Where's Lars? -r At the landlord's sturdy call of "Lars! Lars!" a noisy Shuffling and grunting mingled with cheery cries of "Jesr'kom- merrv;(I am coming!) wefe, heard from the vicinity of the stables;: "and present ly a typical Norwegian skysgut or post boy bounded up the steps and into the Inn. , -.. . , , - He was one the jolllest and" merriest of his class we had seen in all Norway; tow-neaaea, Dig-eyed, open mouthed. and rippling and running over. with a gurgling and boundless good nature.

"Amen!" said the professor solemnly and we liked htm none the less for ths heartiness of hla response. But here our curiosity was both piqued and baffled by the disappear ance of the three, after a whispered consultation between the landlord and the professor, who meantime gave sev eral well-defined head-jerklngs toward us, within a private room. On emerging from this an hour later, the landlord was swelling with Impor tance; the professor wore as contented a face as it seemed possible for Him to wear, and there was a look of eager expectancy In the eyes of young Lars, whom we privately plied with questions without avail. Our last recourse was to draw the professor out at supper. This would be an easy task, we thought, as we' wero alone with him at table. Our wager must be definitely decided; and, besides, we were becoming more deeply Interested in the personality of the supposititious scientist, In young Lars, who had certainly been engaged as his guide, and In this wondrous scholar sister, about whom we built all manner of pretty romances among her olden loved mountain saeter scenes. To every fair Inquiry of the road the professor politely responded. We gave him our names and vocations, which he received with conciliatory "A-a-ahs?" We descanted upon the scenery, the curiosities of the Norwegian travel, the peculiar customs of the country, and even endeavored to awaken responsive confidences through railing at the plen itude or women in Norway. . But the professor with bis "Ahs!' "Exactlys!" "Quite sos!" and the like merely munched his food and blandly permitted us to interest each other as best we might. ; , At last my friend, with a sly "wink set out upon an audacious venture. "My chief disappointment In visiting Norway," he gravely began, "has been In failing to discover multitudinous evidences of glacial strlattons!" - The professor here nearly upset his bowl of groed In his excitement of In dignation. "Bah! Tut, tut! Nonsense! An ab surd statement from an apparently In telligent traveler. Why, they are ev erywhere. Thick as the leaves. Mark every rock at each valley side. You must be dreaming, sir. Bah!" My friend merely opened his eyes as If In polite Inquiry for definite rebuttal of his observation and calmly pro ceeded. "I am also satisfied from most pains taking investigations and this has been a source of perturbed anxiety to me in Norway! that the so-called 'true glacier' is, as a body, quiescent; that it does not Itself move; that only de tached portions of the parent accumula tion" Here Professor Detrius Moraine wrung his lips with his napkin as if In a very agony of impatience, tossed It from him with snapping fingers, and brought his fist down upon the table with so resounding a whack that the dishes danced jigs and galops of the liveliest inscription. "That only detached portions of the parent accumulation " "The detached portion of the parent accumulation represented In any per son who will give utterance to such idiocies, sir, is either a scelestic ruffiaYl or an illimitible ass, sir! There's my card. sir. I shall be here until morn ing, sir. Oh, Lord! what stupefaction of ignorance! Bah!" With this the doughty professor stormed out of the room, slamming the door viciously behind him; and my In genious friend, atter deciphering the card and handing it to me with, "Twen ty kroners, please!" broke Into as hear ty a laughter as ever rang through the droning passages of a stuffy Norwegian Inn, In which I hilariously joined, well repaid In the result of the petty invest ment. We fully resolved to present our humblest apologies in the morning and endeavor to secure the professor s toler ance If not his friendship and esteem; but we were informed by the innkeeper "that the brave knight of science had paced his room until after midnight -"awaiting some message from the two dolts he had met at supper," and, dis appointed In this, had snatched a few hours of rest, and departed long before we had risen to the dreary Mldtfjeld with happy-hearted Lars. In relating this the weather-wise landlord shrugged his shoulders and shook his head forebodingly. Then, glancing at the frozen wastes of the Mldtfjeld, he said gloomily: 'Lars will come beck. His sister, Hansine, will return. All the seater- girls and the herds will descend In good time to the valleys. But the mountain storms are making early; and If we see that forhaerdet (obdu rate) man again, I fear the folk of Romsdal will have to dig him put from under the Mldtjeld snows!" It was this remark which determined our remaining In and aroiind 'Ormelm until we had set eyes on the fair Han sine and could surely know that Pro fessor Detrius Moraine had turned his back upon the dangerous fjelds of Nor- wy: ...

That of Klippe- hul, or Crag-hollow which Lars and the" professor sought, was perhaps no more than twelve miles distant from Romsdal highway, but cert'alnlyASN than twice that distance by the cir cuitous and -tortuous way. The path was plain enough to Lars, as to all those Norwegian Alpine climb ers, and to the wise ponies utilized to carry supplies to the saeters and bring back again their pack-loads of butter and cheese; but -a- stranger to these mighty ravines and crags would have been irretrievably lost after half a day's wandering.- . .. .

As It was, they were obliged to pass a night beside a lonely tarn, shut In by black, forbidding walls, with snow clad peaks for the only outlook beyond. Here Lars' genius for surmounting dllfloultles was aptly Illustrated. Dur ing the last two hours' ascent, Lars had gathered .here and there every dead branch of wood that came In sight, as well as bunches of juniper branches. With his tollknlv or belt knife which every Norwegian peasant carries, and some bits of strong cord possessed by every Norwegian post boy for mending broken harness, he had arranged these In compact bunches, be stowing them on his head, shoulder and body, until he was completely hid den from sight. With the dry wood he built a cheer ful lire. The Juniper branches pro vided their bed, which was laid in a snug angle of a projecting rock. A traveling rug and a stout carriole blanket formed their covering, and there beneath the glittering stars they slept as only tired mountain climbers ma v. The next morning their ascent was resumed through hollows, over ridges where Ice and snow lay concealed be neath thin layers of Mack sediment and slime, around soundless tarns still and dark as the walls enclosing them, past copses of stunted fir, through na ture tunnels as dark as Kbits' depths, until, late In the afternoon they came to the lonely saeter of Klippe-hul, truly a lonely hollow between the crags. From a distance nothing could be distinguished but a low, wide hut at the side of a pockety ravine, through which a narrow torrent poured; the whole shut In from Romsdal way by black and tooth-like crags, and on ttv other, by broken rocks, here and then jplatched by already browning bits o verdure, above which lay the eternal snow upon Its measureless pedestal of glittering Ice. At first no human being was In sight about the saeter; but shortly a flaxen haired maiden of splendid figure stood beside the hut door. Shading her eyes with her round, bare arm, she gaze long and earnestly at the advancing couple. Lars gurgled mlghtly at this, made wonderful gestures and cried oir ecstatically: "Hansine! Hansine!" Suddenly a girl rushed at them 1. a sort of bounding gallop, and. selzlnr the post-boy guide, hugged him wildly, wrestled with him, turned him roum: and about and again hugged him while tears of Joy flowed down her winsome face, poured torrents of en dearing questions and ejaculation; upon him; while the Professor, not without a trace of wonder and admira tion in his keen little eyes, stood Im patiently by. Then came the wonderful hospitality of these mountain eerles. The cows might come or stay in their mountain fastnesses, until the newcomers were given their bowls .o"Q milk and drink and drink again they must; water for washing; some curious old half-wooden shoes to replace their heavy boots; and such an aftenstnad or Bupper as was never before piled before Professor Detrius Moraine: groed or stirabout enough for the saeter's pigs; cream by the quart; butter by the Btone weight; milk by the gallon; coffee and black bread and bacon In alarming measure: while they were ceaselessly plied with Importunate commands to eat and never stop eating, land beset , with A $OjE.ffNIP MHGIC IRON- TON.E For Nerve, Brain and Blood.

But Professor Moraine had not come to the Mldtfjeld for either dalliance or food. The gentle modulation or wel coming tones, the amplitude of hos pitality, even to the tenderness of af fection between Lars and Hansine, could not for a moment hold back hla ImDatient footsteps. ' Out upon the mountain valley he coursed like some happy animal rreea from winter restraint. Here and there he sped form valley side to side, then back up the tortuous stream, thence along the frozen face of the Held, now and then rubbing his hands gleefully or tossing his large head rolllcklngly, until he finally disappeared up the frozen banks Intp the pathless space beyond. The cows had, come, wore milked and were huddling sleepily beneath the huge shed behind the cabin before Lars and Hansine, In their loving con course, had noticed the Professor's ab sence. Then they sped, to the point where they had last seen him bounding over the banks of snow. At last they found him, Just at the edge of what seemed a great Ice wave held back by a few projecting, black and pinnacled rocks. Here he was seen pacing back and forth as If calculating measurements. Soon they saw him hacking the Ice with a piece of Jagged rock. He worked furiously In the long and lingering twilight like some Arctic gnome or forst-sprlte delving for burled treasure, When they came softly to his side he scarcely noticed them. Finally he placed the splintered rock like a rude stone monument above the center of the little orifice he had effected and laughed gleefully. "Ha, ha, ha!" The strangeness of the sight caused Lars and Hansine to respond with, "Ha, ha, ha!" The Professor looked up with a changed countenance and a pitying glance. "Ah, poor Ignorant children!" he sighed commlserotlngly. "You can lever understand the pleasure I expe dience In at last beginning my great experiment to prove to the scientific vorld, beyond cavil, the correctness of my theory of the viscosity of glacier ce!" Lars and Hansine In turn now looked upon Professor Detrius Moraine with pitying commiseration, and gently led him to his couch, with Lars, beside that of beautiful Hansine; just as the sturdy herbergerer of the little Inn at Ormelm said It would surely be. Lars should have set out on his re turn to Ormelm the next morning; but the professor's Impetuous earnestness kept him. Scarcely without their knowing how, certainly without their knowing why, the brother and sister found themselves with their strange companion working valorously upon a tunnel Into the heart of the Ice moun tain. The professor labored heroically with them. In the one day the three had dug a horizontal excavation, something like a miner's diminutive drift, wide and high enough for scant passage and nearly forty feet In length, the entrance to which the professor carefully cov ered with ski ns and blankets. Lars' departure the next morning and Hanslne's frequent references to the near abandonment of the saeter only nerved the professor to greater ex- summer drink.

Her splendid energy, her winsome raoe, her grandly developed figure, her unerring stroke as he swung the stout Ice-as, with numbers of which every saeter Is provide, and her gladsome eagerness In hr blind obedience to the professor's slightest command, must have wrought upon the scientist strangely.
