Ah Jacques, tho trapper, trumped
along the homeward trull hreathlng
the sharp cleun air lie too foil invigorated and leaned on tiio traces of his
well laden toboggan with that enduring patience so characteristic of the
woodsmen of the north..
It was a long tramp rrom the settlement to the snug little cabin nt Willow Creek, but there wore necessities
which the grim nnd mysterious forest
would not yield, Bujeh 'ns woollen
clothing, flour and sugar, nnd this
toad of supplies was to help celebrate
the anniversary of the Christian birthday. The trapper glanced nt the
slowly lowering sun and began to
make calculations on wnat time he
could reach the cabin. He had three
bear sets which he wanted to visit
and taking these In he reckoned he
could reach tho cabin before the late
moon rose.
Accordingly he kept the trail, ent-
Ing up the distance with his long,
rangy stride and placing his big, Indian snowshoes with a skill that
comes only from long experience. Towards sunset as the shadows grew
long* In the silent forest, Jacques came
upon his first set. Leaving his toboggan, he turned Into the thicker
growth at his right and continued a-
long the bank of a small stream for
half a mile. Here he halted, examining the snow wtth scrutinizing eyes.
To his right was a dense windfall and
to his left the river, leaving a comparatively clear margin of a few feet
*tBWH» iln> urttmbank of ttie WStfff*
which past experience told him was n
favorite trail or the larger animals.
Seeing no bear tracks nt the runway, Jacques turned back. He expected the animals would come from
this direction and therefore wanted to
be sure If a bear bad passed recently

Par io tho Tvofltwara, in tho doorway of a little cabin in Willow Crook
a woman's anxious faco wns turned
upward, watching the groat pate ntoon
ns ll rose hi tlie starry heavens, Than
sho wu tolled the trail with wistful,
tear-filled eyes, every now mul again
glancing buck Into lhe room, where u
little hoy of five and a little tow*
haired girl ol four slept soundly tucked iu by ii loving mother';: hand. A-
guln the mother's eyes sought the
trail. She knew thai Jacques v;ns
somewhere in the black'.less of the
grim und myntorotin forest, and she
knew too thut no holier woodsman
ever travelled on it** silent trails, but
deep ln hor woman's heart was a
strange dim warning, an uneasiness
which even hor wilderness-bred courage could not dispel. He had promised to be homo early on this night,
uud she knew thai only au accident
froze on being exposed to tlie zero air.
Why didn't he think?
Again that weird, menacing cry
rose on the stilt night air. This time
It was much nearer, although not noticeably Increased in volume. A sickening feeling crept Into the lone man's
heart; he struggled frantically, then
paused flora s.ieer exhaustion with
only his pallid face showing from the
frozen bearskin. Once again the cry
arose and Jacques knew thut they had
found the trail. Now he realized tlie
awful hopelessness or his condition.
Many hours on Bnowohoea from the
Willow Creek cabin, even if they could
sl'ii'I help, and still farther from lho
Battlement, In a wild und rarely vteit-
od jinrt of tin* Athabasoo WOOdi, mid
denied even tlie chance of a tic lit a-
guinsi  odds,   Jacques  shivered,    his
heart sank nnd he prayed aloud,
This man was no en ward -far from
It. As brave u mnn o« ever .-lugged a
puck in alt the Northland, a land
where men ure bred to meet emergencies ami taught by tlmt rough teacher,
experience, Jacqua would meet anything thnt roamed the woods as long
ns lie was free to fight, but to face n
foe under these conditions was more
tlnin he could bear und keep his mind.
For n moment he was motionless, gazing with wild, glittering eyes into the
surrounding shadows.
The hunt-cry was hoard again and :
nearer, and soon gray shadows moved
among the trees, nnd four flaming
eyes circled about the toboggan with
it's living load, Then a strange pause
ensued Jacques took a deep breath.
There was a sound in the shadows— i
light footfalls, the click of angry jnws,
u tow growl and then u greui dark
form, much larger than tlie other'
two, circled about the toboggan.   A j

The woman turned into the dimly
lighted room. First she looked at
her sleeping children, then tier eyes
wandered to the hearth, wliere she
watched the dancing flumes. Outside
on ttie still night air n long mournful
cry arose, which brought her suddenly
to attention. Before Its lust notes
had died away she hud slipped on u
heavy macklnaw und picking up a pnir
of snowshoes stepped to tne aoor. After securing the snowshoes she headed
straight for the I hick woods at the
rear of the cabin. For some minutes
she tramped in silence, but when a
little distance from the rnbfu she
raised tier fingers to tier mouth nnd
sent a shrill whistle through the forest. Pausing for n moment phe listened and then turning to the east she
went on, whistling again and again as

Deeper in the forest nnd blending
harmoniously with its shadows, loped
a great grey form. Now it paused
beside n Juniper bush, now n long

tense muscles, and Dingo, the trapper's dog hunted with nil the alertness

The next set was about an hour ''a,:nl '""■ mm" >'- ,h:,! r"11, ' l",,ll'i,,,:
down the main trail nnd close beside
it.    Here Jacques r.tapnod about    n
leader, he had just asserted his sup-
rlority, he was tho one who would
lead the fatal rush, whose fangs
would first draw blood on Jacques'
defenceless face. The man's spirit
broke; he tried to faint, hut bis eyes
were riveted on that circling shape,
Tho great lender circled warily,
trying to catch a whiff of the prey
before him. Around, around lie
moved in ever narrowing circles, Jacques watched for what seemed like
hours; lie saw the half opened mouth,
the dripping fangs, so long, so white
nnd cruet, then his sight grew blurred,
he screamed despairingly and his senses slipped away, instantly tlie leader paused, sniffed, then dnrled forward stopped within a font of the
pallid face. It was Dingo, tlie dog
from Willow Creek!
Por a moment, lie snlffei'. Then he
scented his master through the strong
odor of the bearskin. Tie wltined In
joy und licked the fnce before him.
From behind came a rush, und Dingo,
turning, met tlie wolf with n slush of
*is long fangs that opened li.m from
throat to chest. Instantly the other
wolf closed in. but met tlie same punishing jaw of the ginm flog. All
than| three fought alike, the wild, and the

of those awful jaws.    Ttie first  wolf
