where arents of the Intereata are ready

Tha one to feel the loss of the little
Ameabury girl moat after she had been
spirited away by the Interests was
Toliimy. In a few days, however, he
: found himself living amid .luxurious sur
' rounding as the adopted son of Mr. Bar
day. Time in its flight brings manhood
to Tommy and great expectations to Bar
clay, who has planned to have Tommy
marry Into wealth. But Tommy's lack
of interest In Barclay's business affairs
changes matters. Barclay meets with
success In breaking up the match he had
really planned. Turned down by tha girl
Tommy goes to the Adirondack's to forget
the affair. While there he meets by acel
i dent Celestia.
"You can't keen on fooling me,'.' he
aid. "Come now, whaVa your real
"Celestia." she said. -
"All right, if you don't want to talLme
jet; It will keep, it's bound to. But tell
, ma then are ' you" he hesitated and
blushed. "I d really like to know. You
see I'm rather craiy about you. You're
not Mrs.. Somebody or other, are you?"
The embarrassed smile frose on his
lips.. lie leaped to his feet ana stood lis
tening. ' Faint and clear, sounding cheer-1
fat rather. than ominous, there rose to
them from the valleys below a baying of
dogs. Tommy -had gone once - with a ;
posse of deputy sheriffs t6 sea how' a'
murderer Js .hunted down wlUt th blood
hounds. " Whole scenes of that pursuit
flashed through hie mind, and he knew
that' tha baying.' which now1 sounded In
his eara, was not that of deerhounds
running out ' of season, but the blood
hounds following a human trad.'
He climbed swiftly to the top of the hub
and stood listening, his field ' glasses
glue: to hie eyes. ......
That there would ever he any difficulty
of evading such a man as Btllltter In the
North woods hnd never occurred to him.
He had pictured Btllllter a man of re
source in a laboratory or in a dissecting
'room with an Insensible guinea pig
jstabed out on the operating table, but
not out of doors. Tha man was fat, un
healthily white and. appallingly near
isighted. That such', a man could be so
I hot. upon their trail had about It a slnls
'ter. quality that brought Tommy's heart
Into his mouth.
A glimpse of two bloodhounds and four
men, one of whom was 8tilllter and an
other a full-blooded ' Indian,' crossing an
'pen space, recently crossed by Celestia
and himself during their unhurried es
cape and In the same direction, brought
Tommy down from the Hub In a great
hurry-. '.
As' for Celestia well, she couldn't be a
movlb actress; no movie actress playing
'truant would be hunted down with blood
hounds and he felt that she must be ac
counted for upon some other hypothesis,
but later when there was mora time. "
Mesnwhlle there was nothing to be
thought of but Instant getting together
i of such things as might prove most use
ful aud flight.
"We've got to beat It. Celestia." he
aid. "I'm sorry, because you are tired,
but that man." then by encircling hia
eyes with his hands ha indicated Prof.
i Sumter's eye glasses "is after us."
She rose obediently to her feet.- "t
don't know why he wants to catch you,"
fcld Tommy, "and either you don't know
or you won't tell'. But you dislike him.
snd you're afraid of him. and that's
A. kettle, frying pan, salt, tea and
matches ' rolled into a blanket and
strapped to his shoulders, .his field
glasses, axe and fishing tackle were about
'all that Tommy could carry and make
speed under. Especially ii he had to help
iCeiestia under difficulties. His rifle he
abandoned. It would be better, he
thought, to be unarmed than to attempt
with a light twenty-two to oppose re
'peallng rifles of a heavy caliber. And
furthermore. Tommy, though prepared
to stand up for CVlestia's right end to
figUt for them, was lot prepared to kill
anybody In an affair which was entirely
a mystery to him.
They were soon under way, following
the higher ground, where the granite
outafoppings neither received any im
press from their feet nor long held tha
cynt of the leather soles. But ths crests
of the ridges wera not all granite, and
Tommy knew very well that In places
tliry were making what woodmen call a
broad trail. A trail of footprints and
bent and broken branches wbich an Indian-
will read as casually as a com
muter reads his newspaper and which,
by bloodhounds, he will follow as
rainhjr as small boys follow a procession
i t rough a city street.
Thst broad reaches of unbroken granite
aouM occasionally baffle their pursuers
sua till that Tommy could hope for. He
ruuaird on thene bafflements for making

I would take her, but cradually his mind
: cleared up on this point and he he
I came occupied with the problem of 'get-
. ting to that place by a route which their
pursuers would find the moat difficulty
possible In following. He had hopes. In
deed, of throwing them completely off
the trail.
. They turned a little more to the west
I ward, and began to descend from the
hlsh ground. The baying of the hound
i at this time , seemed If anything a little
j closer. j
"Where are we going?" she asked sud
denly. '
"We'ro going to hide on a little Island
in a-deep lske, Celestia, Even If they
find out that we are on It they'll have
trouble getting to us. Very few sailorK
and fewrr woodmen know how to swim.
I use, to fish in that lake a tot, and I've
an old dugout hidden on the' shore, an l
there's the remains of a hut on the
Island. And I left an old moth-eaten
bi.ffslo lobe and a blanket there only
last fall. If there's anything left of
them they'll, come In mlghtly handy, 1
can tell you," . ,
They came to a broad, shallow stream
that flowed brightly under an arch of
dark foliage. "Here's where we begin
to make trouble for them." said Tommy.
Holding her elbow with his free hand, to
keep her from stumbling and falling,
Tommy led Celertla to the middle of the
brook, and then they waded down it for
upward of a mile, as if it had been a
winding road, and only left it when the
rocky nature of the country through
which it pussed offered them an oppor
tunity of so doing end leaving a minimum
of trail. ...
All at once Tommy realized that a great
silence had fallen In the forest. And he
knew that at last the bloodhounds were
In difficulties, for they had ceased to bay.
The oftener Tommy helped Celestia
through, over pr under some difficulty
of the wilderness, saved her from being
torn by tha brambles or eneouraged her
with his voice, the more infatuated he
became with her. .
Mary BlacKstone's image could be re
called only by an effort of memory. And
yet It was only a few days since ho had
fancied himself In love with her. He
confessed this to himself more than once,
and could but feel ashamed and sheepish.
How Ion would It be before he fancied
himself in love with Celestia, after how
long- a separation would he discover that
he dM nut love her In the least?. He
had no stability. 'Was he never to. have
a serious purpose in life? love 7 Love?

"Oh!" exclaimed Celestia. . "But this
earth Is beautiful." . -
"Remind you' at" all of heaven?" asked
Tommy, a little mischievously;
Not In the least." said Celestia. and
as If she did not wish to discuss the com
parative beauties of the two places. "Is
that our Island?" she asked
"We'll be hard to find," said Tommy,
"and now the work is almost all over.". .
They descended the narrow strip of
land which divided the lake from the
forest, and here Tommy told Celestia to
sit down and rest while he hunted for tha
dugout and got it Into the water.

Ameriean eagle, etc., although they hare
been deliberately adopted without any
superstitious notions as to their powers,
are, nevertheless, indications of the sur

be classed under the head of totems.
In addition to the rlan totems there

A curious Instance of the survival of
an ancient totem worship Is to be found
In the cllv of Berne, ftwttserland. As all
travelers know. Heme possesses a cele

bears ai-e kept at the public: charge. That

totem of a clan which then Inhabited the
country where Berne now stands.
