Till LOST MAIL BAGS
It win evt'iiing In Vladivostok. Out
on the linrlior the dark waters of the w
nf Japnn rrlli'dcil the twinkling liulits
from hnlf n dozen vphwIm lying snngly
nt anchor, nnd westward Ir-IiIihI the
town the moon shone dimly on the
stiowclad plains and rugged slopes of
tho Sikota mountains, livyonil wliii.li,
across the froten waters of tho Amur,
stretched for thousands of leagues tlio
great Siberian desert. Vladivostok
might almost bo called the "jumping
off place" of tho world, lying as it does
on the very eastern extremity of the
great Russian empire.
A few years ngo it was a barren spit
of land, nninhabited and forlorn. Now
the Russian drum bents nt sunrise, and
ships of nil nations lloat their flags in
the harbor.
On this particular evening, while In
the nnrrow struct of tho town all was
silent savo for the occasional trend of n
Russinn sentry, sounds of mirth and
laughter floated from the brilliantly
lighted windows of the long, low garri
son house, for the commandant of the
station was giving a dinner.
It was quite a cosmopolitan gathering
that filled tlio long table, for among the
guests were Russian, French and l'.ng
lisli naval officers, n;nl two or three
Anglo-Indians who had come up from
Shanghai on the mail steamer.
Tho last conrso had been removed, and
tho quickened conversation that comen
with the cigars had just Romtnenced,
when tlio commandant was summoned
outsido, and, when lio returned a huh
ment or two later, tho most observant of
tho guests detected a faint shadow in
his face.
Tho assemblage broke up nt a late
hour, and as the guests passed out on
the way to their vessels a young French
officer cried out to the commandant:
"What is the matter, limn capitaiuel
You look sad und depressed."
Captain bhauoff laughed.
"It is nothing, Lieutenant Oarceau,"
he replied "nothing but the onerous
burden of official duties. However, if
you have on board your vessel n man
with iron nerves and tho bravery of an
African lion you can send him to me."
The Frenchman, taking this in jest,
laughed and passed on with a cheery
"an rovoir."
One young man, who bad overheard
Ihis brief conversation, purposely lin
gered till the last, and as the command
ant held out his hand to bid him goo 1
night be said:
"Captain Shani'll, pardon my intru
Mim. 1 heard jour conversation witli
tho Frenchman. I stw, though ho did
not, that you were in earnest, and now
1 oiler yon my service."
The captain looked t him in surprise.
"Yon jiro one of the passengers by tin;
mail steamer from Shanghai':" he said.
"You are correct," said the man. "My
inline in Luke MowJiray, of the Indian
civil service."
"And what is ymir object 111 making
this proposition?" uskod tho captain.
"I tun fond of adventure uud sport,'1
replied Mowbray. ".Since leaving India
1 have had a dull time of it, and my
chance for excitement and change will
be doubly welcome.'"
The Russian captain stood in hesita
tion for a moment, and then loading tho
way silently to nil apartment beyond the
dining hall he motioned Mowbray to a
seat and sat down facing him.
"Now," said Captain Shanoff, "I will
explain my conversation with th
Frenchman as briefly as possible.
Thirty miles frota hero, amuug the
Sikota mountains, J hero is a small de
tachment of Russians engaged in mining
operations. Mail hags are coui-oyed to
them twice a week by a native, who
makes the return journey in two days.
A month ago the carrier left Vladivo
stok for tho encampment. He has not
been heard of sinco. Two weeks ago a
secoiu? crrier started, and he, too, has
coir p'.dtely disappeared. For more than
a aiupth we have heard nothing of our
companions. It is a profound mystery.
Tonight I learn that uo one can be found
who will undertake to carry the snail
bag. The natives here are cowards,
and what few men I have, while they
are good soldiers, are not the men to un
ravel a mystery."
"What is your theory?" asked Mow
bray, "Bobbers? Wild beasts? Or
could they have lost their way?"
."Wild animals are scarce," said the
captain. "There are uo robbers in this
part of Russia, and the path, while
difficult, is plain,"
"When should the mail bag go?" went
on Mowbray.
"It came by today's steamer, and
should leave early in the morning,"
replied Shanoff.
"Well," said Mowbray, "the ad
venture promises welL I will undertake
to reach the encampment with the mail
bag."
Captain Shanoff at first refused to
listen to his proposition; but Mowbray
insisted to firmly that he at last gave a
reluctant consent.
Although he hesitated to incur the re
sponsibility that would assuredly fall on
his shoulders in case anything should
befall the brave young fellow, he was
secretly overjoyed at his good fortune,
for the Strang disappearanco of the two
nativss had produced such an effct
upon both natives and soldiers that no
one could be found in Vladivostok who
would undertake the journey.
' Moreover, the captain had a grave sus
picion that the native carriers might
Lavs fled intothe interior with the mail
bag, tor strangely enoiigli tho missing!
men were hrothers.
This suspicion, however, win of tint
Vaguest, for what possible moiive could
two ignorant natives have for s'.o liing a
lot of worthless letters and Hi eing into
an almost nninhabited desert':
Before day broke on the following
morning Luke Mowbray slipped secretly
and noiselessly out of Vladivostok, and
turned Westward toward the pinv
crowned ridges of tho Sikota range.
He rodo the commandant's horse and
wore n lingo pair of bonis tho Russian
had lent him. Before him on the saddle
rested tho mail bag, and in bis right
hand he carried a loaded revolver,
ready for instant use.
It was broad daylight when he crossed
the plain and rodo into the mountains.
He had little fear of losing his way, foi
Captain Shanoff had impressed the road
carefully upon his mind, and to fiirthct
aid bim the trees were marked with an
ax at short intervals.
Luke was troubled with no misgiv
ings ns his horse slowly picked his way
over tho frozen ground. Ho was one of
those adventurous fellows who roamthf
world over seeking out strange placid
and untrodden paths, and ho was keenlj
enjoying this little Siberian excursion.
Captain ShanofT had truly declared
tho road to bo bad. For ten miles it 1 'd
np and down hill, over stones and fallen
trees, mid more than mice Luke h id t'
dismoi'i't evd lead tho horse over sunn
unusually bad spot.
About noon ho reached tho fop of tilt
highest ridge and made a brief halt fm
lunch. Tho valley below bim waj
thickly wooded and was deep and nar
row. Tho road l"d through it fur seven
or eight miles, and then, the captain had
said, it crossed a gap in tho mountain
nt a point only three miles distant from
the mining camp.
It bad suddenly grown colder, mid thf
air was keen nnd.biting as Luke rode
slowly down the mountain side. Thf
valley was wild and desolate, and Lukr
had to admit to himself as ho spurred on
his horse that it was a very uncomfortii
bio bit of country.
For the first time in his recollection a
strango feeling of uneasiness crept grad
ually over him, and ho tried in vain tu
shake off its influence. To make mat
ters worse, a lino snow began to conn;
down and the sky grew dark and gloomy.
Luko was by no means nuper.nitious.
but tho idea now took firm possession of
him that sumo great peril was approach
ing, and for a moment ho wished that
ho had not volunteered for such 1111 un
certain piece of business. Then ho grow
angry with himself.
"What i;nseuse!"ho cried half iiloml.
Aild whipping up his horse ho gal
loped at u swifter paco up tho valley,
skimming over tho crusted snow, and
leaping ver rocks and bushes until the
forest dwindled to tho edge of a clear
ing, a long, low bit of ground, 1111 ta
inted wiih hillocks of drifted snow.
On the very edge his horse stopped mid
sniffed dm air unetusily. Then be la.hrO
forward with a start, almost uaseatiu
his rider.
On the frozen ground was svino dark
object, and as Luko with liilicully
pulled his horse up short ho hiiiv, with u
thrill of horror, that it was a mail bag
similar to tho one ho carried.
It was lying half under thonow, and
as he dismounted mid tried to pull it
loose he discovered dark re4 stains 011
the frozen crest. Horror stricken, he
stood still in amazement, forgetting to
pull tho bag loose, when suddenly tint
horse pricked up his ears and liegaii to
tremble violently.
With u sudden impulse Luko threw
himself back into the saddle on tho in
stant, for far in the rear came a long,
Uiournl'ul howl Unit trciublnd and died
away.
Tli'i mystery was solved.
Liko a Hush Lnko realized the fate of
the rwo mail carriers a fate that might
ere long be meted out to him, for the
howl Im heard was the cry of hungry
wolves. Again and again it rose on the
wintry air, louder and more savage. Al
ready they scented their prey.
Driving the spurs deep Luke flashed
np the valley at a blind atid furious
pace.
lie knew too wtll the nature of his
foes. The commandant had assured
him that no wild animals frequented
that part of the country. Bo much the
worse. The hungry brutes had been
driven by starvation toward the coast,
and hariug no donut devoured the two
natives they had taken np thair habita
tion in the valley.
Soon the howl was repeated said taken
up on each side uatil the forest rang
with their doleful sounds.
' They gradually came closer, though
the brave horse was thundering onward
with all bis strength. A little while
longer and he might be saved, for al
ready dimly through the trees Luke
could see the break in the mountains.
The forest became more open, and
once, turning half around in the saddle,
he saw the dusky forms leaping through
the bushes. A terrific howl told only
too plainly that they had sighted their
prey. There was tho "pip before liim
now, with the path winding over its
rugged slope. The brave horse dashed
up at full speed, and in an instant he
had gained the summit.
But the maddened brutes were almost
at his heels, and turning sharply aronnd
Luke fired at the foremost, a groat,
gaunt animal, with foaming jaws and
bloodshot eyes. It was a good shot, for
the beast tumbled over in the snow,
and the rest of the pack fumed on tho
wounded comrade and tore him to pieces.
Luke was able to gain some yards.
J9 a moment they were after bin
again, full cry, ns no dashed down tiia
opposite slope, and twice turning round
ho fired into tlio midst of the pack.
Then was a furious snarl and a bow
of pain, but they came on uncheckefl.
His situation was now growing des
perate, for the horse's speed was failing,
Hint his strides growing feebler and
feebler.
The wolves were a dozen yards be
hind and gaining fast.
Luke turned ngaiii and fired, and as
he aimed to give them a second shot a
dire accideut befell him. The barrel of
the revolver caught in tho fur trim
mings of his coat and dropped to tho
ground, leaving him absolutely rt tho
niercy of his savage foes.
Sick with despair bo made 01111 last
effort to escape, leaning forward on the
horse's neck and urging the brave ani
mal to greater speed. In a moment
moro horse nnd rider would have been
overtaken and dragged to the ground,
when suddenly the sound of running
water reached Luke's ears, mid some
distance before him down the slope of
tho hill ho saw a low, deep ravine cross
ing the path.
A little closer and be saw distinctly
what was before him. A mountain
stream, in ordinary times a mere brawl
ing brook, but now swollen by rain to 11
rushing torrent, swept between twi:
sleep banks. Here was a chance for
safety. If ho could only leap the gulf
his ravenous pursuers mi;;ht he left be
hind. Leaning forward on his horse's neck
he urged him on with one last, despair
ing effort.
Tho brave animal thundered down tht;
hill, still ahead of the howling pack,
reached tho brink of tho gorge, rosf
without hesitation into the air mid enmr
down safely oil the other side.
Tho wolves, rushing blindly on,
plunged over the edge of tho precipice,
and though some of them perished on
the sharp rocks', the remainder, strug
gling down into a deep pool some yards
below, swum through the icy waters tc
the bank, and struggling to the top took
np the chaso again as though nothing
had happened.
Luko, fifty yards in front by this time,
looked back just as the topmost wolf
came in sight over the bank, followed
by half a dozen more in quick sncccs
sion.
His heart sank within him, and for a
moment he was tempted to givo up tin
struggle.
As tho horse, startled by the renewed
bowling of the pursuing pack, dashed
off again, trembling nnd perspiring.
Luke's cyo caught tho sight of 11 dark
object lying on tho snow ahead of him.
It was a rillo, the lost property 110 don lit
of oncif tho unlive mail carriers.
Guiding tlio horse directly toward it
ho leaned down suddenly from tlio sad
dluand as bo l imbed past made a quick
snalcli at it.
Tho horsu swerving at this critical
moment be missed his aim, and foolishly
nuking a recond attempt overbalanced
himself, ami with a cry of lienor shot
hcjuli'orcuiost into tho snow, while bis
riderless horse thundered on his course.
For a second Luko lay sUiuned and
dizzy, tho howling of the wolves ring
ing faintly in his ears. Thou, pulling
himself upright, ho lookwl eagerly
Around mm.
Horror upuiii horrors! The foremost
wolf, a great, gaunt creature, with blood
red jaws, was nearly ii)H)ii him. Now,
seeing his prey so still, lufeuseless
within his grasp at last tho brulo carni
stealthily forward, with sneaking tread.
Luke shouted at him, but tho wolf
only growliJ. Picking np the rifle, he
-snapped it in vain, and then, seizing it
by tlni barrel, he swung it around ii ins
body.
With a Curious spring tlio wolf was
upon him. He dimly saw the clarin
eyes close tw his own, felt the hot broalli
on his neck, and then heard a blinding,
deafening reMrt ringing close to his
ears, after which ho knew no more.
Strange faces were bonding over hint
when lie regained coiLw iousness. Hi
rescuers wore the Russians from the
ruining camp, who had hastened to hi'
aid when the first bullets were fired. A
fortunate shot had killed Luke's assail
ant in the uick of time, and the remain-
der of the pack, cheated of their human
jirey, had gone on in pursuit of the horse.
Luke was carried to the -camp it was
only two miles away and by the fol
lowing day be was feelingbimself again.
The mysty was cleared up at last.
The fate of the two natives was only too
iear, aim in addition one of the Rus
sinus from the camp had doubtless met
tie same death, for he had made an at
tempt to reach Vladivostok a week be
fore and bad aot been heard from since.
Half a dozea of them ventured out
fully armed, and found all the mail bags
and the bones of Luke's poor horse. No
trace of the two luckless natives was
discovered, and nothing was seen of the
wolres either. Probably the remnant
of the pack had been frighteued out of
the neighborhood.
Two days later, Luke was escorted
back to Vladivostok, and was eagerly
welcomed by Captain Bhauoff, who was
overjoyed to see him safe and sound.
The commandant wished the brave
young fellow to spend some time with
him, but Luke declined. He had seen
quite enough of Siberia, and the next
steamer took bim buck to Shanghai, for
be was more than satisfied with his ex
perience with Russian wolves. New

of a walking stick with ebomzed handle,
in which the camera is surrounded by a
wide silver band and accompanied by
all the necessary apparatus for making
photographs, llie handle is htted in'

which connects with a spring and pin
underneath, and is operated noiselessly

containing silver, postage stamps an
cards. New York Telegram.
