After a little while they arrived by
way of a hill, over which they pTuaged
into the middle of the cajnp. Thorpe
eaw three large buildings, backed ead
to end, and two smaller ones, all built
of henvy lo;,', roofed with plunk and
lighted sparsely through ono or two
Windows apiece. Tho driver pulled up
opposite the space between two larger
buildings and began to unload his pro
visions. Thorpe set alwnt aiding him
and so found himself for tin; first time
in a "cook camp."
It was a comiuodknis building. One
end furnished space for two cooking
ranges and two bunks placed .one over j
the other. Along one side ran a broad j
table shelf, with other shelves over it
and numerous barrels underneath, all
fdlcd with cans, loaves of bread, cook-
ies and pies. Tho center was occupied (
by four long bench flanked tables, down
wlioso middle straggled uteneHa 'con
taining 6ugar, apple butter eoradimenta
and sauces and whofo cdgs were set
vith tin dishes for about forty men.
The cook, a rather thin: faced man
with a mustache, directed where the
provisions were to be stowed, entl tho
"cookee," a hulking y.outb, assisted
Thorpe and the driver to carry them In.
In a few moments the task waa fin
ished, with the exception 'of 'a half do
cn other cases, which th driver desig
nated as for the "van." The horses
were unhitched and stabled In the
third of the big log buildings. The
driver indicated the second.
"Better go Into the meh'g.earap and
sit down till th boss gets In," be ad
vised. Thorpe entered a dim, overheated
structure lined on two sldea by a dou
l5e tier ft Hr'c bunks' partitioned
from"cn mother liko cabins of a boat
and centered by a huge stow over
which hung slender poles.' 'Tb latter
were to dry clothes on. Just outside
the bunks ran a straight, hard bench.
Thorpe stood at the cnirance trying to

bad when he gets full of red llkker;
and Norton, he's bad when ho gets
mad like, and will use axes."
Thorpe did not know he was getting
valuable points on tho camp bullies.
At dark the old man lit two lamps,
which served dimly to gloze the shad
ows, and thrust logs of wood Into the
cast Iron stove. Soon after, the men
came in. They were a queer, mixed
lot. There were active, clear built,
precise Frenchmen, with small hands
and feet and a peculiarly trim way of
wearing their rough garments; typical
native horn American lumber Jacks,
powerful in frame, rakish in air, reck
Uwti In manner; big Hond Scandina
vians and Swedes, strong men at the
sawing; an Indian or so, strangely in
conlrast to the rest, and a variety of
Irishmen. Englishmen and Canadian.-!.
These men tramped In wjthout a word
and net bu!!y to work at varauis tasks.
Some sat on the "deacon seat" and be
gan to take off their socks and rub
bers. Stni others selected and lit lan
terns from a pendant row near the
window and followed old Jackson out
of doors. They were the teamsters.
"You'll find the old man in the ollice."
Thorpe made his way across to the
fmall log cabin indicated us the office,
and pushed open tho door.
A man sat at a desk placing figure
on a sheet of paper. He obtained tho
figures from statistics penciled on three
thin leaves of beechwood riveted to
gether. In a clialr by the stove lounged
a bulkier figure, which Thorpe con
cluded to be that of the "old man."
"I was sent here by Shearer," said
ThoriK? directly. "He said you might
give me some work."
So long a silence fell that the appli
cant legan to wonder if his question
had been heard.
I might," replied the man dryly at
"Well, will you?" Thorpe inquired,
the humor of the situation overcoming
"Have you ever worked in thewoods?"
The man smoked silently.
"I'll put you on the road in the morn-
i ing," he concluded, as though this were
the deciding qualification.
i One of the men entered, abruptly and
! approached the counter. The writer at
. the dotsk laid aside his tablets.
j "What is It, Albert?" lie asked.
I "Jot of chcwinY' was the reply.
I The scaler took from the shelf a long

man who does not expect that his re
quest will be granted.
Besides the beans were Tried salt
pork, boiled potatoes, canned corn,
mince pie, a variety of cookies and
doughnuts, and strong green tea.
Thorpe found himself eating ravenous
ly of the crude fare.
That evening he underwent a cate
chism, a few practical Jokes, which he
took good naturedly, and a vast deal
of chaffing. At 0 o'clock the lights
were all out. By daylight- he and a
dozen other men were at work hewing
a road that had to b as smooth and
