Wo all suv Chris off. and then the
n on took ii hack into the bunk house,
where they talked ri7'l argued for nn

his uu:i! taciturnity. Cut when at
length he spoke again Iiis words n ioii
like a bomb-hcil.
"Say. boys." h- said, and the ea

"it's about time v.e lt the boss out."
Every Lead b.ked round in his !i

dozen volt's. "Before the police

gentle manner. "Yn'.i set', it wn n't liiiu

"Who was it ile-n:"
November l up.

Finally fi:r of us l..;ml-il the lis
caiioo ar.d set off.
I lost all sor.se of direction in the
darkness until we came out on the
banks of til." brook near Tides, .u
bridge. We crossed, and sill four of us
crouched in the shadow of a big rk
l t twenty yi.rds fr..ni the hut. We
had heen forewarned l.y Nowmber to
keep very quh t at:d to waf-h the hut.
The p.ale- f -relights of dawn v.-ere
already in the air when I felt Novem
ber more slightly, and a moment late:
I heard a siict break, then footfalls on
the bridge. A 1 ui.-li shadow came
eautiou-ly down tie- hank, hesitating
at every ste:. tut always a; -proa, bit.g
the but. until at I.i-t it j'af.-ed within
it. Then n mat-h flared inside. 1
saw it pass the hroken window. Then-
nas a pause. Th" r .'-reakeJ faint

I put out r.'y hands toward Novem

Meantime the figure frm the hut
was moving i:; the path to the road
and a second figure was gaming ou

or:tI:iies as he fo-'oved with arms out
Mietehed. Then the arms fell, and
there was p. . ry. aln-.-t a shriek.
When we ran uy Novemher wn hold

"Search liiiu. hoys." said Novemher.
"lie's p.t tle stuT on him."

A few l.usy hoai' followed, and it

"I tbink nothing yet. And here's the

He turned to tbe door as Yal Clack
came swinging np tbe trail. lie was
of middle height, strongly built, with ,
quick eyes and dark hair which, j
though cropped close, still betrayed its I
tendency to curl, fie greeted Nov em- j
ber warmly. November was, I thought, j
even more slow spoken than usual.
"Yah" he said, after some ta'k.
"hsvc you stiil got tbnt pink necker
Sally knitted for youi"
"Yes. I've cot her."
I! "Iii-ht h

muClcr out of tiis pocket.
Hah!" said .loe.
There was a si'enep. rather a strain
ed silence. tetween the two.
Then November continued. "Where
was you last night?"
Ya! looked narrowly at Joe. Joe re
turned his stare.
"Say, November Joe, are you search
ing for trouble?" asked I'iack In an
ominously quiet voice.
"Seems as if trouble wns searching
for me." replied November.
There was another silence Then
Val Jerked out. "I call your hand."
"I show it." said Joe. "Youre sus
pected of rohbinz Sally's traps this
month back. And you're suspected of
entering Sally's house last evening
and stealing pelts."
With a shout of rage Yal made at
November stood quite still under the
grip of the other's furious hands.
"You act innocent, don't you. you old
coyottel" he grinned ironically. "1
never said I suspected you."
Clack drew off. looking a little fool
ish, but he Cared up again.
"Who i it suspects me?"
"Just Eva is. And he's got good evi
dence. Where was you between 0 and
7 last night?"
"In the woods. I come back and
"Was you alone?"
"Then you can't prove no alibi." Joe
It was at this moment that Evans,
accompanied by two other forest ran

"It won't be for awl.i'e not till they

"Cuoss 1 have the laugh of you, No

"The stolen pelts."

"I'm u warden don't need one."
"You'd not search without It," said
November, movimr in front of the door.

"Huh! Sr.y, Mr. Quaritch. have yon

tilted his rilie, the? strands of the tell

for Mrs. Cone, and the suggested nio

jointed, conclusively it seemed to me.
In one direction. And yet I knew that

question as to where he had been.
"Down to the store at Iivette." he
whispered. "I was talking about that

on the trail below us. A second or two

to the late'i. 1 heard Joe sigh as be
covered the man with his rifle. Then
en-re bis voi'-Li jn p;S q-jjet tones.
"Cues? the game's off. Sylvester
ron't turn! Hands up!"
The lean stood still as we came be
hind L'.li. At a word he faced round.
I saw the high check boi-.es and gloam
ing eyes of an Indian. His savage face
was contracted with animosity.
"Now. Mr. Quaritch," said Novem- !
!or suggestively. j
I tiatter myself I rcada a neat job
of tying up our prisoner. J
"Thank you. What's in that bundle ,
on his buck?"
J opened it. Several skins dropped '
out. Joe examined them. "All got
Sally's mark on." he said. "Say. Mr. :
(Jus ritch. let me Introduce you to a
pretty mean thief."
I noticed that Joe took our prisoner
along it a tood puce toward Lavette.
?rter hTnTTe or two. "however, "he asked
me to go ahead and If 1 met with Mrs.
Cone to make ber wait his arrival, but
he added in an aside. "Tell her noth
ing about Sylvester."
1 reached the village soon after
dawn, but already the people were
gathered at the store, where every
one was discussing the case.
As I heard nothing of Mrs. Rene, I
set out toward her house. When I
met her I noticed that her gentle face
wore a changed expression. I deliv
ered my message.
"I'll never speak to November again
as long as I liveT' she said with deep
vindictiveness. "November's played
double with me. I'll show him!"
1 walked beside her in silence, and
jut before we came In sight of the
houses we met with Joe alone. He
had evidently, left Sylvester in safe
custody. Joe glanced from Sally to
me. I read understanding in his eyes.
We've got him trapped safe. Sally.
Not a hole for him to slip out by."
Sally's rage broke from her eontroL
"You're just too cute. November Joe."
she blazed, "with your tracking and
finding out things and putting Yal in
jail! What do you say to It that I've
been fooling you all the time? I never
lost no pelts! I only said it to get the
h.ugh against ye. Ye was beginning
to believe ye could bear the muskrata
"Is that so?" Inquired Joe gently.
"Yes. and I'm going Into Lavette
this ininute to tell them!"'
Joe stepped in front of her. "Just
as you like. Sally. Cut how'Il ye ex
plain these?" He Cung open the bun
dle of skin he carried.
Mrs. Cone turned color. "Where dlJ
ye tind them?" she gasped-
"On his back."
She hesitated a moment, then. "1
gave Yal that lot." she said carelessly.
"That's queer, now," said Joe. "cos

"Guess the game's off. Don't turn!
suddenly, excitedly. "Ou. Joe. you're
sure tbe cutest man ever made In this
world.'" And with that she flung her
arms round his neck and kissed him.
"I'd best pass that on to Yal Black!"
said Joe calmly.
And Sally's blushes were prettier
than you could believe.
There is no need for me to tell bow
Clack wa.s liberated from the bands
of the crestfallen Evans, who was as
nonplussed as I myself had been at
the breakdown of the case, which up
to the last moment had on the face of
it seemed Indestructible.
I have never looked forward to any
explanation more than that which
November gave to Mrs. Kone, Clack
and myself tbe same evening.
"It was the carcass of Eizpab give
me the first start." said Joe. "As soon
as I saw that I knew it weren't Yal."
"Why?" asked Sally.
"You remember it was hacked np?
Now bore was the case ud to that: A
thief bad robbed Sally, and all tbe
sign he left behind was a few threads
of his necker and an English made
cartridge. Tbe thief goes out. and old
Rir.pah attacks him. lie shoots ber.
Then he cuts her body nigh to pieces.
Why?" YVe all shook our heads.
"Cecause be wants to get his bullet
out of her. And why does he want to
get his bullet? Only one possible rea
son. Cecause it's different to the bul
let ho dropped on purpose in tbe
'I'.v Jove!" I cried.
"From that it all fits in It seems
funny th?;t the thief should drop a
cartridge, funnier still that he should
not notice he'd left a bit of his necker
stuck to the nails on the door. Still.
I'd allow them two things infght hap
pen. Cut when it came to his having
more bits of his necker torn off by
the spruces where Evans found them,
it looked like as if the thief was a
uagmy poor wooasman. nicu ue
wasn't He hid his tracks good anl
cunning. After that I guessed I was
on tbe right scent, but 1 wasn't plumb
sure till I come np to the place where
he killed tbe partridge. While he was
snaring it he rested his rifle ag'iu a
tree. I saw the mark of tbe butt on
the ground nml tbe scratch from tbe
foresight upon the bark. Then 1 knew
he didn't carry nj English riCe."

He meant robbin" Sally, too. and had
his plan Inid. He must V gone to

he had the black fox skin separate in
