THE MANIAC'S CHILD. A. TALE OP LOVE, K,o*T_l_^2SrO_ll AND TI?,AC2-__i*D**sr BY W. KEXIVETII COCIIKA****. Founded on Fact Furnished by the Courtesy of J. Fletcher Williams, of the State Historical Society. CHAPTER I. "Does the white man see the slender line of pale blue smoke that curls laz ily O'er yonder clump of trees?" and stretching forth her pretty hand the Indian maiden pointed westward Jo a spot some little distance from the open ing in which she stood. She was slender, graceful and fair to the eyes of the stranger who stood before her. He, a stalwart, bronzed and handsome youth, looked in the direction indicated and nodded af firmatively, though his eyes instantly returned to the girl. He had appeared but a moment before and accidentally met her face to face. Somewhat con fused, he had asked for the place, to which he wished to go, though he knew it perfectly well. "May 1 ask if you are a resident of yonder lodge you seem so familiar with?" he inquired rather cautiously, with an admiring glance, whilst in wardly lie wondered at the whiteness of her skin and the fluency with which she spoke the English langu-fle, a fact that was somewhat unusual with a maiden of the dark-hued Chippewa tribe. VWhv do you ask?" she quickly re plied, with a slight touch of dignity, and, turning her piercing eyes upon him with, as it seemed to him, an air of suspicion. "For no especial reason. I only won dered— mean I thought it rather queer —or rather 1 didn't expect to see so fair a woman in the midst of such deso late, surroundings," he confusedly re sponded. A flush mounted her forehead and she frowned slightly, yet seemed pleased. "Do you think me pretty?" she frankly asked. "Aye, that I do, more than pretty," said the honest stranger boldly, but with respect. "1 am glad," she replied, and, with smiling face, pointed once more to the distant clump of trees and turned to go. Removing his hat, the stranger thanked her, then also turned to go his way. "Strange," he muttered as he picked his way through the labyrinth of vines and brush, "strange that I have never seen her here before. How beautiful she was. And her skin, so white. 'Twas surely not that of an Indian girl. Perhaps she was stolen from the whites when a child, and the sun's rays tinted that skin such a dainty brown," then he turned once again to gaze after her retreating form. A sud den turn in the path would hide her from view, aud as she reached it she turned her head, kissed her hand to him. and was gone. A thrill shot through him, for he had suddenly taken a deep interest in this child of the forest, and started to follow her. He stopped as quickly, calling to mind something mysterious in her manner, shook his head, then once again turned his face towards his destination. For half a mile he slowly wandered on, then" suddenly emerged into an Indian camp ere he was aware of it, for his thoughts were centered on the strange meeting of a few minutes before. Fourteen birch bark tepees composed the camp. Located in a picturesque spot on the shore of Lake Superior it seemed a veritable fairy resort. A few young lads were sporting near the water with a dozen howling Indian dogs, but the moment the white man appeared sports were forgotten and he was surrounded by yelping curs and greasy boys. A chunk of wood deftly thrown in* their midst scattered boys and dogs alike, and the stranger ap proached the half-dozen old men grouped about the fire that burned before the largest tepee. That he had been there before was evident trom the actions of the old men. Each one greeted him with a short nod and a grunt, and the one nearest him scraped away a few chunks of wood, which the stranger un derstood as an invitation to sit down. He took the. hint. They smoked away in silence some time, and the stranger was discreet enough not to be the first one to speak. Filially, one of the circle, evidently the chief, removed his pipe from his mouth and said bluntly: "White man have heap luck!" "No, chief," the stranger replied, traps yielded me nothing to-day." A grunt was the only comment. "White man bad trapper," said the chief. "I'm afraid you're right about that, old man." "Best go back to his lodge in the South." "1 had about decided to do that, but I have chanced my mind." . "Why has white man changed his mind?" said the Indian, looking up quickly. ."Merely because I would be as poor as when 1 left. I must stay until 1 have something to show for my work." A grunt from all rather startled the stranger and he closely scanned each face, but saw nothing but vacant looks. He knew not whether the grunt meant disapproval or something else, and felt somewhat troubled. Again his. thoughts flew back to the early afternoon and a fair face and willowy form appeared within his mind. A sudden thought struck him and abruptly he said: "By the way, chief, while on my way to the camp this afternoon I met a maid of wondrous beauty. Her skin — and he stopped. Did he observe the Indian start as though struck, or was it only fancy? He satisfied himself that it was merely imagination and continued: "Her skin was fairer than that of the Chippewa people and 1 fancied that, perhaps, she was a white. Can you tell me anything about her?" Deep silence. The old chief finally broke the silence and the stranger in stantly detected a change in his tone. It seemed more stern and a close inspec tion revealed the fact that a change had come over every one there. "Did white man converse with the girl?" asked the chief. "Well, no, or yes, I mean. I asked her if, or I meant to say, I asked her where the lodge was?" said the stranger, and realized at once that he had spoken indiscreetly. "Did not white man know where the lodge was?" sternly asked the chief. "To he sure 1 did, but I only wanted a chance to talk to her. 1 rather admired her. you see, and was " "We bid white brother good night," interrupted the Indian. The six reds arose and moved to their tepees. The stranger was alone. CHAPTER 11. Early in the spring of "02 three young Unmarried citizens of Goodhue county, Minnesota, named John Martin, Cyrus Spink and Elihu Stafford bade farewell to their homes "and struck out for the shores of Lake Superior in the interests of hunting and trapping.; Their idea was to . establish a trad ing post and barter with, the In dians for -furs, etc., giving them in return groceries and tobacco. Pre vious to this they had laid aside all the money they could get together and in vested it all in the articles they knew the red man most desired. Two large, covered wagons contained all their stock, and they left with light hearts, fully expecting to return in a few years wealthy men. They traveled slowly and managed ' to pick up ii few valuable furs on their way. Letters home by runners reported progress until they readied the Sioux falls, the spot where Sault Ste. Marie now stands. Here they en camped for several -lays and laid in a small stock of furs from the Chippiwas, whose lodges lined both sides of the stream. Several letters were written from here, and the following is an ex tract from one : . - .»**-#* c riave secured an Indian guide, a Chippewa, who, it is claimed, knows the land for hundreds of miles along the shore of the lake. He says he can take us to a remarkably fine trapping ground and we have made him one of the party. We anticipate splendid results, S3 hope with us. and do not worry if you do not hear from us often, lt will be difficult to send you word after leaving here, but until you do hear, keep up your courage and be lieve me. Your most devoted son and brother, Cyrus." This was the last word ever received from the three members of the ill-fated party. Months flew by and lengthened into years, and the folks back in Good hue county gave up the boys for dead. Numerous trappers were interrogated, but had never heard of the three boys. With the prayers of the families fol lowing him, Jacob Spink, an elder brother of the lost Cyrus, started in search of the three boys. He arrived at the falls and started with another guide to follow the beach, said to have been the course mapped out and followed by the three prospectors. A month soon passed. No word. An other month was added and still another, but nothing from Jacob relieved those anxious hearts at home. He, too, was given up for lost and the relatives and friends communicated the facts of the case to an Eastern detective agency, offering liberal pay to the one who would solve the mystery. Robert Eastman.' a strong, determined youth, volunteered to take the case and he it is who is found conversing with the Indian girl at the opening of this story. He had appeared at the Indian camp some weeks before and gained the friendship of the ■ old chief and his followers, at least so it seemed. He frankly told them that he was poor and had come there to trap and make money. A tepee had been set apart for his exclusive use, and to this he silently wended his way when left alone so abruptly by the six old men. ! j Throwing himself upon the grass, he gave way to meditation. "Thus far I have not the slightest cue," he soliloquized, "nut I am willing to swear that the old chief could tell me something about it. Why did he eye me so sharply when I asked about the girl, and who and what is she? Truly, she is a beautiful girl, but there is an expression about her eyes that 1 do not like. The chief is plainly angry at me, though why I do not know. Why should a simple ques tion about a girl of the camp arouse him so? Perhaps he's jealous of her. Humph! Well he may be, for I have fallen a decided victim to that fair creature myself." A slight step startled him. A touch on the arm, and the object of his thoughts stood before him. Again he experienced that strange thrill of de light, and arose. He was about to speak, but she .put her finger on her lips to warn him to silence. "Does white brother wish to go with me? Speak low," she whispered. "Where?" he asked in the same cau tious tones. "Never mind, will he come?" "Lead on," said the detective. She turned and rapidly led the way several hundred yards distant to where a canoe lay on the beach. By its side lay the paddles and a number of queer looking bundles about three feet long and half a foot thick. The eirl reached beneath some willows and drew forth a large pole, the end of which was three- ' pronged like Neptune's fork. He saw at a glance that the bundles were of birch bark and knew she meant to go spear fishing. Though much surprised and intensely curious he bided his time. The canoe' was launched, the bundles placed in it and the two paddled swiftly along within a hundred yards of the shore. A pole was extended over the bow and a bundle of bark fastened to the end. CHAPTER 111. The night was a perfect one for such sport. Not the faintest breath of wind disturbed the surface of the water, and only a few twinkling stars were seen over head. .... — .-: "You must paddle," said the girl turning to Robert, "but don't make any noise. Don't shake the canoe or make any movement, for the slightest sound can be heard under water." The detective started. The tones were of the purest English. She had dropped the romantic Indian talk. .He watched her closely. Quickly and noiselessly she ignited the bark. It burned brilliantly without the slight est sound. Looking into the water he could see every object on the bottom distinctly, though he and his fair com panion were completely shaded by the reflector behind the burning bark. The scene was wild, weird, pictur esque. Beyond the line of the light was naught but inky darkness. The trees on the shore, but faintly revealed; stood, out like ghastly specters, and the mass of brush and willow seemed like some delicate lace or drapery. No hand, however marvelous in skill, could paint that scene as it appeared to Hubert then. To him, however, it seemed not half so lovely as the form of the girl standing upright in the boat, her right arm holding the spear aloft, ready to send it on its mission when the proper time should come. His eyes forgot the charms of nature and become riveted upon the finely poised figure of the girl, and 'twas plain her charms had surely won his heart. A flash of her eyes, and sudden incli nation of her head, caused him to return to earth and attend to the management of the boat. -A" lone, dark, motionless object was seen on the sand beneath. The girl straightened up, and the spear swiftly descended. The next instant it was raised, a flash of brilliant scales, and a large handsome, struggling pike was landed in the boat, while she turned to him a glance of triumph and he smiled back his approbation. There must have been something more than a simple look, for she blushed deeply, then turned her bead away. Thus the sport continued for some time, and she finally gave way to fa tigue. Placing a fresh bundle of bark at the head, she ignited it, then sat down facing her companion. Both faces are plainly revealed. He awaited for her to speak and neither tried to propel the boat. "Do you know why I brought you here?" site abruptly asked. "1 must confess my ignorance," here plied. "1 have been wondering why ever since we started." "Well, it was because I wished to talk to you." . "-„'', "I am astonished beyond measure," he answered, drily. "No sarcasm, please, it is not polite. Besides, that answer savors somewhat of conceit." "1 beg your pardon then," said the detective with an amused laugh. "But why did you not talk to me on shore?" "Stupid! Can't you see there is :no danger of being overheard out here?" "But why this secrecy?" . "Simply this. If we are seen in con versation, 1 will lie removed where you cannot find me. Now, when I return, I have an excellent boat load of fish. If my absence is detected, the fish will ex plain it. I often come out here at night." ''Well, what did you wish to talk to me about?" asked Robert. ' "- "I want to know why you came to this wild place?" "To hunt ami trap." "You are telling me a lie," she said, calmly but decidedly, while be stared at her in blank surprise and allowed his paddle to slip unnoticed into the water. "How do you know?" "For the reason that 1 have followed '■ THE SAINT FAUL DAILY GLOBE FEIDAY MORNING JUNE 8, 1888.— TEK PAGES. you for over two weeks. During that time your traps have not been attended to. I took several;. fine animals .from them myself. and buried them in a re tired spot, so that if any one should visit them, it would not betray you. Does this look like the ambition of a trapper? Does he fail to oait his traps for . two whole weeks?" ■•.-.. Robert merely stared at her. She had told the truth. He had neglected these precautions and supposed that now the game was up. "What did you mean by saying you had no cue? What—. . Yes, 1 overheard it. You should not breath your thoughts aloud," in answer to his inquiring look. He had nothing to say. •'."-.-. ■• . "Will you answer my question as to why you came here?" she said finally, after he had recovered his ' composure. "If you first answer one I shall put to you?" :. •; "It is my privilege to be answered first," with dignity, "and not gentle manly of you to otherwise insist." •" " 'People in glass houses should not,' you know.

He watched her narrowly, but could detect nothing. He finally broke the spell. "You are not an Indian girl," lie said, abruptly. "Why, how wonderfully discerning you are," she replied, with an amused laugh. It exasperated him. '.%"- • .-. --"It strikes me you use unmistakably good English," was his hot retort. "Oh, yes," she said, idly dipping her fingers in the water; "it is probably due to the whites that " She stopped suddenly and turned pale. "What whites?" he incautiously asked, bending suddenly forward. The swift action capsized the canoe, and the next instant the two were struggling in the water.

This medicine is peculiarly designed to act upon the blood, and through that upon all the organs and tissues of the body. It has a specific action, also, upon the secretions and excretions, and assists nature to expel from the system all humors, impure particles and effete matter, through : the lungs, liver, bowels, kidneys, and skin. , It effectually aids weak, impaired, and de- , bilitated organs, invigorates the nervous : system, tones the digestive organs, and im parts new life and energy to all the func tions of the body.

A house that habitu ally tells its customers all about its goods; la beling every lot with a true description of its quality; calling wool "wool" and cotton "cot ton" every time, explain ing whether colors are apt to fade instead of warranting every color "fast;" legally agreeing to take back whatever is returned uninjured and to make restitution for its mistakes whenever discovered; we say such a house need never fear hysterical advertise ments from competing stores that are run on the "get all you can" prin ciple. Supposing they do say that "they have marked their clothing down one third,or one-half , or three quarters and that they must have money," either this is true or it is not. If it is true then their goods must have been marked to sell at most outrageous profits or else their credit and financial condition was so, poor that they paid some middleman too much in the first place. You never heard of first quality sugar, or flour, or wheat being sold at a great discount from market values. And good, reliable Spring and Sum mer Clothing of this season's style, is worth to-day all it actually cost the or iginal manufacturer to produce, which is about 40 per cent under the.usual re- , tail prices. ->r.
