The Honor (Continued.) "Jan Tuoieuu." whispered Jean soft ly, "hare you forgotten that it was 1 -who killed the missioner for yon, and that through all of these years Jean de Gravois has never questioned you about thefiht on t the. rnountain top.? In therein Ythlnjr .leaj vde Gravois can do?" .r .. He sat down opposite Jan. his thin, eager face propped in his hands, and' watched silently until the other lifted his head. Their eyes met, steady, un flinching, and in that look there were the oath and the seal of all that the honor of the big snows held for those two, '. ' Still without words Jan reached with in his breast and drew forth the little foil which be had taken from his vio lin. One by one he handed the pages orer to Jean de Gravoie. ' "My God!" said Jean, when he had finished reading. He spoke no other words. "White fsced.- the two men stared, Jan's throat twitching, Gravois' brown fingers crushing, the rolls he held " ' '' "That was why I tried to kill the missioner." said Jnn at last. "And that thafc4s why it could not signify that Melisse has done up her hair." He gathered up the papers so that they shot back into the little cylinder shaped roll again. '."I understand.'' replied" jean in a low voice. "I understand and I praise the blessed. Virgin that -it- was' Jean de Grarois .wbo killed the missioner out upon the ice of Lac Bain!" "But the other.'VperiHst&iJan. "the other, which says that ; "Stop cried -Jean sharply. He came around "the. table arid rszeS Jan's hands in , the iron, grjp of his lithe, brown fingers. -'That is something for you to forget. It means nothings noth ing at aB. Jan Thorean!. Does any one know but you and me?" - "No one. . I intended that some day .Melisse and her father, should know, but I waited too long.

I made myself for get, burying It deeper eachyear; until today on: the mountain"-- ' " "And today-'ln Xthjs ca Wn ' you will forget again, .and you will bury1 it so deep that It will, never come back. I am proud of yon," Jan Thorean..:;, I love you, and It is the first. time that Jean de Gravois has . ever .said this to a man.' Alt', I hear them coming!" . With an absurd bow1 in the direction of the laughing voices which they now heard, the melodramatic little French man pulled Jan to the door. Halfway, across the open were - Melisse and Iowaka carrying a large Indian - bas ket between, them and ..making rherry over the-'taflk. "- WJienTthgy "saw Gra vois and Jan they set down their bur den and waved an invitation' for the two men to come to their assistance. - "You should be the second happiest man in the' world, Jan Thorean," ex claimed Jean. 'The first. is Jean de Gravois!,", . ' .-. . He setoffHke aboirfrom a spring gun in the ..direction of .The two who were waiting for them. He had hoi st- ed the basket upon his shoulder by 'the time Jan arrived., .; .. v "Are you growing old, too, Jan 7" bantered Melisse as she dropped a few steps behind Jean and his wife. "You .come so slowly!" ,"I think I'm twenty-nine." : He looked at her steadily, the grief which he "was fighting to keep back tightening the muscles ' about his mouth. . . v Like the quick passing- of sunshine the fun swept from her face,' leaving her blue eyes staring up at him. filled with a pain .which be had never seen In them before, in a moment he knew f that she had understood him, and he could have cut out his tongue Her hand reached his arm, and she stopped him, her face lifted pleadingly, the tears slowly gathering. in her eyes. "Forgive me!" she whispered, her voice breaking into a sob. "Dear, dear .Tan forgive me!" Today Is your birthday. Jan yours ahd mine, mine and yours and we will always have it that way. always, won't we. Jan?" Jan was glad ;when the evening came and was gone. "Not until Jean and Iowaka had said good night with Croiset and his-wife .and. both Cum mins and Melisse had gone to their rooms did he find himself relieved of the tension under which he had strug gled during' all of his playing and that night's merrymaking in the cabin. From the first he .knew that his nerves were ' strung by some strange and indefinable sensation that was growing within him something which he could hardly have explained at first, but which swiftly" took form and mean ing and Oppressed ' him more as the hours flew by. .: After the others had gone Cummins sat up to smoke a pipe. When he had finished he.;went"Jto.' his .room. Jan was now i steeping in' a; room at the company's store and after a time he rose silently to take down his cap and coat. He opened, the outer door, quiet ly so as not to arouse Melisse. who had gone to bed half an hour befor. ' As he was about to ..go out there came a sound, a low, gentle, whisper ed word: "Jan!" . ' . , He turned. Melisse stood in her door. She had not undressed, and her hair was still done up in its soft coils, with the crirhsori bakneesh shining In it. She came to him hesitatingly un til she stood with her two hands upon his arm. gazing ; Into his tense face with that "same question in her eyes. "Jan, you were not. pleased, with me tonight," " she whispered. "Tell me "I wes pleased with, you.-!Meisse," he replied." He took one .of her. hands , that was clinging to his arm . and . turned his face to the open night. Countless stars gleamed in the sky. as they bad shone another" night fifteen j-ears ago. "of" the jCopuright, 1911, bu the Bobbs V Merrill Co. Suddenly there leaped up Trom jan Thoreau's breast a breath that burst from his lips in a low cry: "Melisse! Melisse! It was just fif teen years ago that I came in through, that forest out there, starved and dy ing. ; and plajred my violin when your .mother died. You were a little baby then, and since that night you have never pleased me more than now!" - He dropped her hand and turned squarely to the door to hide what he knew had come into his f ace He heard a soft, heartbroken little sob be hind Mm. " v "Jan, dear Jan!" : 'She laughed, happy and trembling; her lips, held up to him. ' , "I didn't please you today"," she whte- pered. "I will never do up my hair again!"' . - - He kissed her, and his arms dropped; from her shoulders. "Never, never again until you have forgotten to love me," she repeated. "Goodnight, Brother Jan!" Across' the open,' through the thinned edge of the black spruce, deeper and deeper into the cold, unqutvering.;lifei tessness of the forest,' Jan went from the door that closed between him and Melisse, her last words still whisper' uag. in hl ears, the warm touch of her hair on' his cheeks, and the knowledge 9f what this day , had meant for him . iwlftly surging, jipon ..him, bringing with it a torment which racked him to ' the "soul, rj v-.? - -j. I, -v-v " He went on until he came to where the '. beaten trail swept up and' away from a swamp. He plunged into it, picking his tangled way until he stood upon a giant ridge, from which . he looked out through the white night into the limitless barrens to the north. ; She was no longer the little Melisse, his sister, he thought. And yet ' He was almost saying her last words aloud: "Good night, Brother Jan!" She had come to him that day to let him kiss her as she had come to him a thousand times before, but he had not kissed her iu the old way. It was a 'different love that his lips had given, and even now the hot blood surged again into his face as he thought of what he had done;. : In that which had stirred, his blood? thrilling him with itrange Joy as he held her in his arms, he saw more than the shadow of sin sacrilege against a thing which was more precious to him than life. ; . CHAPTER IX. The New Agent and Hie Sari. J AN thrust a hand inside his coat . and.clutched at the papers that Jean de Gravois had read. Then he drew them forth slowly and held them crumpled in his fingers, while for many minutes he stared straight out into the gray gloom of the treeless plain. His eyes shifted. They went from rock to rock-and from tree to tree un til at last they rested upon ; a giant 6pruce which hung out over the pre cipitous wall of the ridge, its thicktop beckoning and sighing to the black rocks that shot up out of the snow 500 feetv below. Mukee had told Jan its story. In the first autumn of the wo- H Thrust In the - Papers, - Crowded Them Down and Filled the Hole With Chunks of Bark. THE Big Snows i man's life at Lac Bain he and Per-ee had climbed the old spruce, lopping off Its branches until only the black cap remained, and after that it was known far and wide as the "lobstick" of Cum mins' wife. It was a voiceless ceno taph which signified that all the honor and love known to the wilderness peo ple had been given to her. ' ,.. To, it went Jan, the papers still held In his hand. ""He had seen a pair "of whisky jacks storing food in the butt of the tree two or three summers be fore, and now his fingers groped for the hole. When he found It he thrust in the papers, crowded them down and filled the hole with chunks of bark. "Always my sister, and never any thing more to Jan Thoreau," he said gently In French as if he were speak ing to a spirit in the old tree. "That is the honor of these snows; it Is what the great God means us to be. I swear that Jan Thoreau will never do wrong to the little Melisse!" With a face white and set in its determination he turned slowly away from the tree. When he came into the cabin for breakfast next morning Jan's face showed signs of the struggle through which he had gone.- Cummins had al ready finished, and he found Melisse alone. Her hair; was brushed back in its old, smooth way, and when ' she heard him she flung her long braid over her shoulder, so that 'it fell down la front of her. He saw thevmove ment, and smiled his thanks without speaking. ' " '''' "You don't look well, Jan," she said anxiously. "You are pale,' aud your eyes are bloodshot." "I am not feeling right," he admit ted, trying to appear cheerful, "hut this coffee will, .make a new,, man ,of , jne. You make the best coffee in the world, Melisse' "What are you going to do today, Brother Jan?" she asked. . "Drive, out on the Churchill traiL Ledoq wants supplies, ; and he's too tmsy with his trap lines. to come in." 'fWill you take me?" ' 'I'm ..' afraid . not, Melisee. It's a " twelve mile run and a heavy load." "Very! well. I'll get ready imme diately." - - ; . She jumped up from the table, dart ing fun at him with her. eyes, and ran to her room. "It's too far, Melisse," he called aft er her. , "It's too far, and I've a heavy load" ' ' "Didn't I take that twenty mile run with you over to Oh, dear! Jan, have you seen my new lynx skin cap?" ' "It's out here, : tanging -on-tKe wall," replied Jan,, falling into her humor de spite himself. "BiitX say, MeUsse" - fAre the dogs ready?"- she called. "If they're not I'll - be dressed before you can harness them. Jan." , t "They'll be here' within fifteen . min ntes," he replied, surrendering to her. Her merry face, laughing triumph at him through the partly open door, de stroyed .the last vestige of. his opposi tion, and he left her with something of his old cheeriness of manner, whis tling a gay forest tune as he hurried toward the store. When he returned with the teanyMe lisse was waiting for him, a gray 'thing of silvery lynx fur, with her cheeks, lips and eyes aglow, her trim little feet clad in soft caribou boots that came to her knes, and with a bunch. of the brilliant bakneesh fastened jauntily in hercap. .....'..' . ; "I've made room-for you," he said in greeting, pointing to the sledge. "Which I'm not going to fill for five miles at least,"- declared Melisse. "Isn't it a glorious morning, Jan? I feel as if I can run from .here to Ledoq's!" ' With a crack of his whip and. a shout, Jan swung the dogs across the open, with Melisse running lightly at his side. From their cabin Jean and Iowaka called out shrill adieus: j "The day is not far off when they two will be as you' and I, my Iowaka," said Jean in his poetic Cree. "I wager you that 4t , will be before her next birthday!" And Melisse was saying: "I wonder if there are many people as happy as Jean and Iowaka!" . She caught her breath, and Jan crack ed on the dogs in a. spurt, that left her pantlnga full dozen rods behind him. With a wild halloo he stopped the team and waited. "That's unfair, Janl . You'll have to put me on the sledge." He tucked her in among the furs, and the dogs strained at. their traces, 'with Jan's whip curling and snapping over their backs, until they were leap ing swiftly and with unbroken' rhythm of "motion over the smooth trail. Then Jan gathered in his whip and ran close to the leader,, his moccasined feet tak ing the short, quick, light steps of the trainee forest runner, his chest thrown a little out, his eyes upon the twist ing trail ahead. -. ; ' ? : Mile after mile slipped behind, and not until they reached the mountain on which he. had fought the mission ary did Jan bring his dogs to a walkl Melisse jumped from the sledge and ran quickly to his side.. ... "I can beat you to the top now!" she cried. "If you catch me" There was the old witching challenge in her eyes. ' She sped up the side of the ridge. Panting and breathless. Jan pursued with the dogs. Her advantage was too great for him to overcome this time, and she stood laughing down at him when he came to the top of the ridge. . "You're -as '-pretty as a. fnjry. Me Hsse!" he exrlfiimed. .his oyes'shinut with admira!on. "Prettier than the fairy in the book!" "Thank you. brother mine! -1 be lieve you do still love me a little." "More than ever in my life,' replied Jan quickly, though he tried to hold his tongue. . (To Be Continued-.) ' ' WtojllSj Cent a Word.'
