east where a few wisps of smoke were
rising. Erskine turned: "Do you

"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

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

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

Erskine went. The old inan lay
tremubing with palsy on a buffalo

wasted body was still burning in his
