All the blacks and silvers caught and

"r.ee:iue I couldn't have been de

man nor deer," said Joe.
There was a silence; then I said: .
"What would you give the man that
discovered w ho it was rubbed you';"
"If he didn't get me back my pelts
1 could give him nothing. If he dkl

"Lea ruin" to be." said Joe.
Thus it was agreed that we should
go across to Fel island at dawn to let
November have a look round. We
went ashore, and Joe at once took a
cast, looking for tracks, though he
knew he was little likely to Cud any,
for the ground was as hard as irou
and had been impervious for days.
We next climbed to Stafford's cabin.
"Come right in." said lie.
"Wait:" said Joe. "You told us the
robber lived In here while he was on
the island. If things is the way he
left them I'd like to look round."
"Have your way," said Stafford. "1
haven't disturbed them. 1 put off di
tectly I saw your smoke, and I hadn't
been long ashore."
Joe went iu and examined every
thing with his usual swift care. He
lit match after match and peered
about the stove, for the interior of the
cabin was pretty dark even in the day
time. After this he bent over the table
and, drawing his knife, scratched at a
stain on the near side, and then at a
similar stain upon the other.
"I'm through." he said at length.
Stafford, who had been watching
Joe's proceedings with an air of in
credulity that bordered on derision,
turned sharply to question him:
"Found out anything?''
"Not much." answered Joe.
"We'.l. all I can see is that the vil
lain has eaten a good share of my
"I dare say." said Joe. "There was
two of them, you know."
"Xa I don't! Ami what else can
you telUme almut them?"
"I think they was man and wife.
She's a smallish woman: I'd guess she's
maybe weakly, too. And he's fond
of readinc; anyway, he can read."
Stafford stared at November half sus
piciously. "What?" he shouted. "Are you kid
dinc tuo? Or how did you get all th 't?"
"That's easy." repli.nl November.
"There are two or three traces of a lit
tle tlat foot in front of the stove and
a woman couldn't run this job on her
own. so it's likely there was a man
Stafford grunted. ""ou said she was
"I thought maybe sho was. for if she
hadn't spilt the water cut of the kettle
most times she took it off the stove
there wouldn't 1h any track, and here
is one near on top of the other, so it
happened uiore'n ouce on the same
spot- She found her kettle heavy. Mr.
Stafford," Joe said seriously.
"I'm free to own that seems sense."
acknowledged Stafford. "Hut the read
ing that's different."
"Table's been pulled up alongside
the bunk see that scrape of the leg?
and he's had the lamr close upaUng
side near the edge where the stain is.
There's plenty old oil staius in the mid
dle of the table, but these close to the
edces nin't been long on. You can see
th.it for yourself."
"liy jingo!" said the fox farmer.
"The chap what robbed you was a
trapper all iil:t and had killed a red
fox recent, so recent he carried it
across and skinned it here."
44 liy your stove." Joe bent down and
picked up some short red hairs. "Clum
sy skinning." said he. "Let's go out
and take a laok round the island."
Stafford led the way. At a short dis
tance some of the skinned carcasses
lay. Joe turned them over. Suddenly
he bent down with that quick intei.t
ness that I had learned to connect
with his more important discoveries
From one he passed to another till he
had handled every carcass. Stafford
pointed out another island lying; some
five miles north, where, he told us. he
kept his less valuable stock.
"There's a lot of red and cross foxes
over there on Edith island. It's named
for my eldest gal." he said. "When
ever there happens a black one in the
litters 1 try to catch it and bring it
over liece' to Kcl ' flullo! What's
Stafford stood with his hands shad
ing his e3"es staring at Edith island.
"Look! That's smoke or I'm dream
ing." he cried.
A very faint line of bluish haze rose
from the distant rock.
"Smoke it is." said Joe.
"But the island is uninhabited. Ccme
on. come on!" cried Stafford excitedly,
"it may be those rutiians clearing out
Edith island too. We'll get after them."
"All right. Mr. Stafford." agreed Joe
T.ut I guess it's liable to be your
Aleut Sam marooned over there."
"TUat3 a signal lire. Whoever
made that tire is putting on moss. And
I've noticed things here that make me
think it ain't likely they killed Sam."
The wind served us fairly well, and
as W'e ran under the lee of the land we
were aware of a figure standing on the
beach waiting for us.
'It's Aletit Sain, sure enough." said
The Aleut proved to be a squat fel
low of a most Mongolian cast of coun
tenance. 1Ye rowed ashore in the can
vas boat, and on the beach Stafford
held a rapid conversation with his
man in Indian- Neither Joe nor 1
could follow what was said, but iires
eutly Stafford enlightened us.
"Sam says that one night, four days
aftex I left Eel island, he had just
eaten his supper "when he heard a
knocking on the door. Thinking, it
must be tne who had returned, he
opened It. Seeing no one. he stepped
out Into the dark, w hen a pair of arms
were thrown round him. and a cloth

him po asleep in the hospitnl (Sam's
had most of his toes off on account of
troajfc bitj down toJYaldezj was clajjed
about his head. Ill struggled, but he
says he does not remember any more
until he woke up on the beach here.
It was still dark, and the men and
boat were gone.
"Toward evening he discovered a
barrel of dried fish which had been
tumbled ashore from the boat which
maroened him to keep him from starv
ing, I suppose. lie went up into the
scrub and made a tire. Since then he's
been here and seen no one. That's
"Then he didn't ever really see the
faces of the chaps that kidnaped him?"
Stafford translated the question to
Sam and repeated the answer.
"One had a beard and was a big
man; he wore a peaked cap. Anything
else to ask him?"
"Yes. How long has he been here on
"What's he been doinc all the time?"
"Just wandering around."
"Where has lie been camped?"
Stafford raised his thumb over his
shoulder. "In the scrub above here."
Joe nodded. "Well, let's co to his
camping place and boil the kettle. He'll
cure have a bit of tire there."
Joe stirred the smouldering Iocs into
fife, but in doinc so was so uufortuuate
us to overturn the kettle.
"That's bad." said he. "P.est tell your
man to get some more water."
Stafford sent off Sam on his errand:
but no sooner had the Aleut disappear
ed than November was on his knees
examining the charred embers and
delving among the ashes.
"(let rid of your hired man for a
while longer, only so he don't suspect
anything." he said. "1 hear him com
ing." "You mean he's in the robbery?"
"He sure is. And. what's more, it
looks to me like he's your only chance
of getting your foxes back. Here he
A ni'.Muent later Sam appeared in
sicht walking up the narrow track be
tween the rocks, kettle in hand. Staf
ford spoke to him in Aleut. Sa:n
grunted iu acquiescence, and went off
up the hill that formed the center of
"1 told h::n to go gather some more
wood while the kettle's boiling. Now
you can talk and tell me who you think
has the pelts of my foxes."
"Your foxes ain't dead."
"Arn't dead? You've forgot their
"I allow we saw some rinned car
casses, but they was the carcasses c'
red foxes worth no more than S10
ai 'tice instead of a thousand. I ex
amined those carcasses mighty carefui.
Their eyes wasn't the right color for
black foxes. That's one thing. For
another, I found some red hairs. It
ain't in nature you can take a pelt off
and not a hair stick on the body un
der." Stafford digested this iu silence.
"Hut why in creation should the
chaps have taken the trouble to bring
over red fox carcasses?" he inquired
"That's easy answered. They was
after your best stock. It's profty like
ly they didn't take them far, and they
wouldn't want you nosing about for
your bve foxes."
"Is that it?"
"Another thing. The robbers jns

they could catch and kill a!! your fox
es in two. I'.ut to catch tJie'.u so they
wouldn't be hurt would take time.
No, your foxes ain't dead yet. and they
ain't far off neither, and your Aleut
knows who's got them. He told you
ho'd been eight days on this island,
Stafford nodded. "Eight days, that's
what he said."
"He lied. I knewit ihc moment I
set eyes on his lire. Not enough ash
to this fire to make heat to keep a
man without a blanket comfortable for
eight days this weather. And look!
The loughs he's broke off for his bed.
They're too fresh. Ag'in. he ain't got
no ax here, yet the charred ends of
the thicker bits on the fire has been
cut with an ax. It's clear as light.
The robbers ferried Sam across here
about two days back, cut some wood
for him so he shouldn't be. tot. cold,
gave him grub to last till 'bout the
time you'd likely be home and left
"I guess you're right. I see it now.
I'm grateful to you."
Stafford reached for his title, but Joe
"Stay you still, and I'll shov you the
way we do iu the lumber camps."
Sam's strong, squat figure advanced
toward us. As he stooped to throw the
wood he had brought on the ground
Joe caught his shoulder with one hand
and siiatch.-d the knife from his belt
with the other. And then there Hash
ed across the features of the Aleut an
expression like a mad dog's, lie Hung
himself, gnashing and snarling, on No
vember. I'.ut he was in the grip of a man too
strong for bim, and. though he return
ed again and again to the attack, the
huge young woodsman twisted him to
earth, where Stafford and I tiid his
This done we rolled him over.
"Now," said Stafford, "w ho it has
got my foxes?"
The Aleut sh'iuk his head.
Stafford pulled out his revolver, open
ed tiie breech, made sure it was load
ed and cocked it. Next he held his
watch in front of Sam's face and point
ed out the fact that it wanted h'Jt live
minutes to the hour.
"I'm telling him if he don't confess."
he said. "I'll shoot him when the hand
reaches the hoar." He turned to us.
"You'd best ;:o."
"Good heavens! You don't really
mean" 1 cried.
Stafford winked. Je and I went
down to the beach below.
A quarter of au hour passed before
Stafford joined its'.
"What's happened?" 1 asked.
"He's confessed, all right." Then
Stafford looked at Joe. "It all went
through just the way you said. It

it. Landed on Eel island with his
wife the night I left, they were there
until two days ago; took them all their
line and Sam's to get my foxes. Then
they brought him over here."
Ami now I will leave out any ac
count of the events of the next six
teen hours which we spout in the
skiff :iid pick up the thread of this
history again with Stafford knocking
at the door of the Jurgensens' cabin
on T'psala island. We had landed
there after dark.
Joe and 1 sood back while Stafford
faced the door. It v. as thrown open,
and a big gingerbread Swede demand

"I've just called around to take back
my foxes," said Stafford.
"The blacks and silvers you stole."
"You are mailt!"
"Shut it!" cried Stafford. "Ten days
ago you and your wife; having decoy
ed me away to Yaldez. went ft Eel is

"Z ; Yot then?" jeered Jurgensen.
"Then you rowed over to Edith island
and marooned my man Aleut Sam. who
was in the rohlery with you."
The big Swede snatched up a rifle by
the door and stepped out.

"Who are you?" bellowed Jurgensen.
"He's the man that told me your
wife was weakly and spilled the water
from the kettle when she lifted it. for
he found her tracks at my place by the
stove. He's the man that discovered

"Me also," said Jurgensen venomous
ly as he bowed his head. "Yot you
