In twenty minutes fruui the time they
halted the meal was ready to eat.
"About forty below." Shorty mumbled
through a mouthful of leans. "Hope
it don't yet colder or warmer neither.
It's just right for trail breakiu'."
Smoke did not answer. His own
mouth full of beans, he had chanced to
fiance at the lead dog lying half a
t'ozen feet away. That gray, frosty
wolf was gazing at bini with the iu
iinite wist fulness and yearning that
glimmer ::n 1 haze so often in the eyes
of m rthland dogs. Smoke knew it
well, but liever got over the unfathom
able wonder of it.

Shorty laughed skeptically. "Oh. if
it's a hunch, go to it. A man's always

"It isn't a hunch. Shorty. Hright just
sort of got on my Imagination for a
couple of twists. He told me more in
one minute with those eyes of his than
I eould read in the books in a thousand
years. His eyes were a-crawl with the
secrets of life. They were just squirm

is I almost got them, and then I didn't.
I'm no wiser than I was before but I
was near them."
"Coiled down into simple American,

"Smoke. I win," Shorty proclaimed.
"A hunch is a hunch, an you can't
beat it. There she comes. Look at
her surgin' up like a lot of corpses."
The mass of Indians at sight of the
two men had raised a weird cry of joy
and accelerated its pace.
"They're sure tolerable woozy," com
mented Shorty. "See 'em fallin" down
in lumps an" bunches."
"Look at the face of that first one,"
Smoke said. "It's starvation that's
what's the matter with them. They've
eaten their dogs."
"What'll we do? Run for it?"
"And leave the sled and dogs?"
Smoke demanded reproachfully.
"They'll sure eat ns if we don't.
They look hungry enough for it. Hello,
old skeeziks: What's wrong with yon?
Ion"t look at that dog that way. No
cookin' pot for him savvy?"
The forerunners were arriving and
crowding about them, moaning and
plaiuting in an unfamiliar Jargon. To
Smoke the picture was grotesque and
horrible. It was famine unmistakable.
Their faces, hollow cheeked and skin
stretched, were so many death's heads.
More and more arrived and crowded
about until Smoke and Shorty were
hemmed in by the wild crew." Their
ragged garment- of skin and fur were
cut and slashed away, and Smoke
knew the-reason for it when he saw a
wizened child on a squaw's back that
sucked and chewed a strip of filthy
"Keep off there keep back!" Shorty
yelled, falling back on English after
futile attempts with the little Indian
he did know.
Ducks and squaws and children tot
tered and swayed on shaking legs and
continued to urge in. their mad eyes
swimming with weakness and burning
with ravenous desire. A woman,
moaning, staggered past Shorty and
fell with spread and grasping arms on
the sled. An old man followed her,
panting and gasping, with trembling
hands striving to cast off the sled lash
ings and ret at the grnb sacks be
neath. A young man with a raked
back by Smoke. The whole mass
pressed in upon them, and the fight
At first Smoke and Shorty shoved
and thrust and threw back. Then they
used the butt of the dog whip and
their fists on the food maVl crowd. And
all this against a background of moan
ing nnd wailing women and children.
"Mo Carluk. Me good Siwash."
Here and there in a dozen places the
sled lashings were cut. Men crawled
in on their bellies, regardless of a rain
of kicks and blows, and tried to drag
out the grub. These had to be picked
up bodily and flung back. And such
was their weakness that they fell con
tinually under the slightest pressures
or shoves. Yet they made uo attempt
to injure the two men wlw defended
It was the utter weakness of the In
dians that saved Smoke and Shorty
from lK?ing overborne. In five minutes

in the snow and cried and sniveled a

oq the gruti that meant life to them

and that brought the slaver to their
lips. And behind it all arose the wail
ing of the women and children.
"This is terrible," Smoke muttered.
' "I'm all net up," Shorty replied.
"I'm real sweaty. An' now what 'r
we goin to do with, this ambulance
Smoke shook his head, and then the
problem was solved for him. An In
dian crawled forward, his one eye fix
ed on Smoke instead of on the sled,
and in it Smoke could see the struggle
of sanity to assert itself. Shorty re
membered having punched the other
eye, which was already swollen shut.
The Indian raised himself on his elbow
"Me Carluk. Me good Siwash. Me

He began fumbling with wasted fin
gers at the drawstring of a pouch he
took from his belt.
"Too much make 'm noise." Shorty
broke in distractedly. "You tell 'm

Carluk turned and addressed the
wailing women. Other bucks, listen
ing, raised their voices authoritatively,
nnd slowly the squaws stilled and still
ed the children near to them. CarJuk
paused from fumbling the drawstrings
and held up his fingers many times.
"Him people make 'in die," he said.
And Smoke, following the count,
knew that seventy-five of the tribe had
starved to death.
"Me buy m grab." Carluk said as
he got the pouch open and drew out a
large chunk of heavy metal. Others
were following his example, and on
every side appeared similar chunks.
"Great jiminy!" he cried. "Copper!
Raw. red cop;er! An they think it's
"And the poor devils banked every
thing on it." Smoke muttered. "Look
at it. The chunk there weighs forty
pounds. They've got hundreds of
pounds of it. and they've carried it
when they didn't have strength enough
to drag themselves. Look here. Shorty.
We've got to feed them."
"Huh! Sounds easy. But how about
statistics? You an' me has a month's
grub, which is six meals times thirty
which is 1S meals. Here's 200 In
dians, with real, full grown appetites.
How can we give 'm cue meal even?
"There's the dog grub." Smoke an
swered. "A couple of hundred pounds

Shorty agreed. "An' we got two nasty

"All right." Shorty acquiesced cheer
fully. "An. I'll stay au" be eaten"
