Erskine turned: "Do you know Kahtoo?" "He is in' that village." Erskine hesitated: "And the white woman-Gray Dove?" "She, too, is there." "And Early Morn?" "Yes," grunted the savage. "What does he say?" asked Clark. "There is a white woman and her daughter in a village, there," said Erskine, pointing in the direction of the smool. Clark's voice was announcing the fact to his men. Hastily he selected twenty. "See that no harm comes to thea." he cried, and dashed forward. Erskine in advance saw Black Wolf and a few bucks covering the retreat of sonie fleeing women. They made a feeble resistance of a volley and they too turned to flee. A white woman emerged fromh a tent and vith great dignity stood, peering with (11111 eyes. To Clark's amiazement lErskine rushed forward and took her in his arms. A nomIent later Erskine rled: "My sister, where is she?" The white woman's trembling lips opened, but before she coul( answer, it harsh, amgry voice broke in haught ily, and IErskine turned to see Black Wolf stalking in, a prisoner between two' stalwart woodsmen. . "Early , Morn is Black Wolf's snuaw. She is gone-" lie waved one hand foward the forest. The iisoleince of the savage angered Clark, and not understanding what he 5111(1, he asked angrily: "Who is'this fellow?" "lie is the husband of my half-sis ter," answevred Erskine gravely. C'lark looked dazed and uncompre hending: "And that woman?" "My mother," said Erskine gently. "Good God!" breathed Clark. He turned luickly and waved the open mout held woo(dsmiien away, and IErskine and his mother were left alone. A feeble voice called from a tent near by. "Old Kahtoo !" said Erskine's moth e'. '"He is dying and he talks of nothing but you-go to himt !" And Erskine went. The old inan lay tremubing with palsy on a buffalo robe, but: til incredible spirit in his wasted body was still burning in his q ves. "My son," said he, "I knew youtr voice.
