Minneapolis, Jan. 25.—'Reports from
the blizzard sections of the northwest
bring reports «1 deaths from freezing,
the victims being people who were
caught out in the storm or attempted
to travel. In addition to the three
deaths reported from Winnipeg yester
day, word is received from Ellendale,
N. D., that Carl Krause, a young man
who was lost in the big storm of the
19th, was foundJ in a large drift not
more than five feet from the road.
At the coroner's inquest it was
shown conclusively that his death was
not entirely due to the cold, as was at
first supposed but in part to a blow
on the bead, which made him uncon
•or richer, than we were before we paid
/Young Krause started from Ellen
dale for home with a horse and light
sleigh. When within a few miles of
home the sleigh evidently became fast
in a large drift, and having found his
efforts to release it futile, he .unhitched
his horse and attempted to ride its
back the rest of the way. After this
nothing definite can be learned of his
actions, except that be crawled till he
encountered the drift in which he died.
At Walker, Minn., Maggie Smith, an
Indian woman known on the reserva
tion as "Mink ©ye," was found frozen
to death near the old agency, about
three miles from Walker.
At Whitehall, Wis., Mrs. Rose Samp
eon, of Blair, on learning of her father's
eerlous illness, started to walk to his
home to attend him. Her frozen body
was found about a mile from her fath
er's home. Her father died also. The
tunerals of both will be held today.

:Zoo Line Again Tied Up.
Minneapolis, Jan. 25. Surrendering
temporarily to the snow blockade, the
Soo Line has abandoned traffic on its.
main line between Glenwood and
Pasqua, Sask., a distance of r00 miles.
Yesterday, on the advice of General
Superintendent Oeorge R. Huntington,
who is at Enderlin, N. D., where he
is attempting to clear the line, coast
traffic was handled oyer the Winnepeg
branch and the Canadian Pacific. The
main line between Glen wood and
Pasqua is snowbound, having been vis
ited with another -heavy storm Wed
nesday, according to reports received
at the Soo Line offices. It is expected
to resume main line traffic In two or
three days.
The tie-up takes two dally passen
ger trains off and leaves the people
along the line without mail or a chance
to get out. The time by way of Win
nipeg is about the same, and the Soo
Line feels particularly gratified in hav
ing this outlet for its west-bound

his hold on the title at Chicago this
week by defeating Ora Morningstar, of
New York, 500 to 472. Sutton's high

Morningstar kept dangerously close to
the champion thru most of the race,
but his play was more or less erratic
and 'he lacked the brilliancy of the
time-tried veteran.

For a moment none of us dared move,

It was a terrible one. I had a mad Im
pulse to jump, shrieking, for the door,

that quivering silence endured a mo

"Simmonds, give me your lantern,"
said Godfrey, with an admirable calm
ness. "Lester, have your cane ready."
I did not look I was afraid to I had 'over *nd picked up-the necklace,
already seen too much. I was grateful "I was sure we should find It here,"

Were there two snakes, Lester?" "The snake bit him probably," add-1
"No," I answered, as articulately as Godfrey thoughtfully, "as he thrust
I could, "I think not. I never saw but the necklace under the pillow. It was
a fitting punishment."
"It was greater than he deserved," I
protested hoarsely. "He was not tbe
man to meet a death like that"
"A man! He was a vampire!" said
wliat a vengeabcO! Shehadnot laugh
ed and forgotten!
Then in a flash I understood that last
strange scene—the change in Cecily as
she stood watching us from the deck
of the receding boat, the pressing
against the rail, the frantic effort to
shout a message to Tremaine. She
hud relented, she did not wish to kill
him, she loved him yet! But of that
warning he had caught only a single
"Tfye bed!" I cried. "The bed!"
"Right!" agreed Godfrey Incisively,
and walked to the bedroom door. In
an Instant tbe Inner room was ablaze
with light. He armed himself with
one of Tremaine'* canes, and together
we approached the bed.
"Ready, now," be said, and with a
sudden movement stripped back the
covers. But there was nothing under
"The pillow, perhaps," he said, and
turned it over.
There was a quick movement, a soft
hissing, a vicious head raised itself,
two eyes of orange fire glared at'us.
I heard the swish of Godfrey's cane,
and the head felL Fe-Fe would work
no more evil.
And then as I looked more closely at
the coils I perceived something else
there something bright, iridescent,
Godfrey lifted the mangled body with
the end of his cane and threw It into
the middle of tbe bed. Tben be bent
Godfrey sternly. "He lived on tbe
lives of others. Don't let your senti

"(Hi, you didtit know him!" I cried.
A bot resentment of fate was sweep
over me. I tmUmi ttat towa at
the bottom of liny' heart, I liafl ~nevef
really believed in Tremalne's guilt
Even now I hardly believed In It.
Godfrey turned to Simmonds, who
stood contemplating tbe scene with
staring eyes, bis lantern still open In
his hand.
"It's bard luck, Simmonds," be said.
"You're not going to get the glory,
after all. But who could have fore
seen a thing like this?'
Simmonds opened his month and
shut it again without uttering a sound.
"You'd better notify the coroner,"
continued Godfrey, "and, I suppose, to
be strictly regular, I'll have to turn
this necklace over to you for the night.
Guard It well, Simmonds. If worth
a hundred thousand dollars."
"I heard the ttcish of Godfrey's cant.

"Yes, it's the Delroy necklace. You'll

little laugh of anticipatory triumph.
