due wc.-l between the : Isiv of the for
est, i'ro-i midday on throuirb the
whole of the afu moon we traeled ua
til Joe found the deserted camp.
The very Mr-t th.in my eye lit upon
eritisod I!'V to (.TV i ;.: ill t e;t lilel.t.
for side l y side were tv.o l. :i of bal
sam branches that had evide:,t!y been
i'la-ed under the shelter tf tLv same
tout cover. Noveivber, th-ui. was ripl.t,
Lyon had camped v. ith st.io cue on
the iii-rht before le- d.ed.
I ca'l- d out to him. TV." quiet pn-tieic-e
and an attitud" as if rather de
tached from events fell away from him
like a cloak, and with almost uncanny
swiftness he was makinp hi examina
tion of the crimp. Hut I was destined
to disappointment, for, as fur rs 1
could see. Joe discovered neither clew
nor anything nr. usual.
To becrin with, he took up and sifted
throucli the layers cf balsam boutrbs
which bad composed the beds, but ap
parently made no find. From tm ho
turned quick! v to kneel down by thr
rshy remains ef the fire nr.d to ex
amine the charred b'tr-s one by one.
After that he followed a well marked
trrdl that led away from the lake to a
small ninrsh in the farther part of
which masts of dead timber were
standing in preat profusion. Nearer t
hand a number of stumps showed
where the campers had chopped the
wood for their lire.
After looking closely at these stumps
November went swiftly back to tho
camp and spent the next ten minutes
in following the tracks which led in
all directions. Then once more he
came back to the fire and methodically
hftld off one charred stick after an
other. At the time I could not imagine
why be did this, but when I under
stood it the reason was tdmplc and ob
vious as was that of Lis every action
when once it was explained.

nearly every bit of wood before I
heard him u:?er a smothered exclama
tion a- he h.-ld up a piece of stick.
I took it into my own bands and
l ol.e! it over. It was charred, but I
srw that on" end had been split and
the other end sharpened.
"What in the world i it'" I asked.
Novom'ier smiled. ".Tiis-t evidence,"
I was glad ho had at last found
si acthintr to go upot;. fo-, so far. the
eau-.p had appt a rod t produce parsi

of a burning ember to his pipe, "has

II put the question quite seriously.

v. aid ir.u.y.
"I can so., tha tv men slept tinker

and that they were here for a day.

orhor o;:e night." corrected November.
"II .w can you tell that':"
November p. .?:! to the ground at
the far si le of tho tire.
"To bet; in with. N. j Jiad Ms camp
pit led ov.-r there." said he: then, see
ing my look of perplexity, he added
pityingly : "H'.'ve a westerly wind
these hist two days, but before that the
wind was east, and he camped the first
night with his back to it. And in the
now camp one bod o" boughs is fresher
than tho other."
The thing pconied so absurdly ob
vious that 1 was io tiled.
"I suppose there are other indications
1 Lav. -n't noticed." 1 said.
"There might be some you haven't
mentioned." lie answered, warily.
"YVnat are they?"

that ho kiiied a i::' -': last week; that
he cm read: that he spent the night
before the murder in gteat trouble of
mind and that, likely Le was a religious
kind v" chap."
As November reeled off these detsil3
in Lis quiet, low keyed voice I stared at
Lim in amazement.
"T.ut Low can )ou have, found out all
that?" I said at hist. "If it's correct
it's wonderful I"
I "II toll you. if you want to bear,
when I've got my mau if I ever do
get him. One thing nio'e is sure, be is
a chap w ho knew Lyou well Tk rest
tf the job lies in tho settlement of St.
Ainii'!. where Lyon lived."
W'c walked back to lbg Tree portage
and from there ran down in the canoe
to St. Amiel. arriving the following
evening. About half a mile short of
tin settlement Novenuor landed and
set up our camp. Afterward we went
on. I had never before visited the
place, and I found it t le a little col
ony of scattered Louses straggling be
side the river. It possessed two stores
and one of ihe smallest churches I
Lave ever seen.
"Hu can help me Lore if you will,"
said November s, we paused before
the larger of the stores.
"Of course I will. How?"
"Uy letting 'cm think you've engaged
nie as your guide, and we've come in
to St. Amiel to Miy some grub and
gear we've rim short of."
"All right." And -with this arrange
nier.t we entered the More.
I will not make any attempt to de
scribe by what roundabout courses of
talk November learned all the news
of desolate little St. Amiel and of the
surrounding countryside. The provin
cial police had evidently found means
to close Uie mouth of the lumberjack

men Lad all been away three weeks or
more, and all had started in canoes,
except Lyou. who. having sold his.
went on foot.
Next, by imperceptible degrees, the
talk slid round to the subject of Lyon's
wife. They had been married four
years and had no child. She had been
the belle of St. Auiiel. and there had
been no small competition for her
hand. Of the absent men both Miller
and Fitz Curd had been her suitors,
and the former and Lyon had never
been on Rood terms since the marriage
