CHAPTER V. (Continued.)
As on tho preceding night, each mnn
ook his hour's watch on the uppel
plateau. When It came to Altamont's
turn, and ho had gone out to relievo
Bell, Hatteras called his old compan
ions round him. The doctor left his
desk and Johnson his cooking, and
hastened to their captain's side.
"My friends," ho said, "let us take
advantage of the American's absenco
to talk business. There aro things
which" cannot concern him, and with
which I do not choose him to meddle.'
Johnson and Clawbonny looked at
each other, wondering what the cap
tain was driving at.
"I wish," he continued, "to talk with
you about oUr plans for the future.
"All right; talk away, while wo aro
alone," said the doctor.
"In a month, or six weeks at the out
side, we can leave here. ' Have you
thought of what We had better d" this
"Have you, captain?" asked John
"Have I? Not an hour 'of my life
passes without revolving In my mind
one cherished purpose. I suppose' hot
a man among you Intends to retrace
No one replied, and Hatteras went
on to say:
"For my own part, even If I must
gro alone, I will push on to the north
pole. Never were men so near It be
fore, for we are not more than 360
miles distant at most; and I will not
lose such an opportunity without mak
lng every attempt to reach It. Even
though it be impossible. What are
your views, doctor?"
"Your own, Hatteras."
"And yours, JohnsQn?"
"Like the doctor's."
"And your's, Bell?"
"Captain," replied the carpenter, "it
Is true wo have neither wives nor chil
dren waiting us in England, but, after
all, It is one's country one's native
land! Have you no thoughts of re
"We can return after we have dis
covered tho pole quite as well as be
fore, better even. Our difficulties will
not increase, for as we near the pole
we get away from the point of greatest
cold. We have fuel and provisions
enough. There Is nothing to stop us,
and we should be culpable, in my opin
ion, if we allowed ourselves to aban
don the project."
"Very well, captain; I'll go along
"That's right; I never doubted you,"
aid Hatteras.- "We shall succeed, and
England will have all the glory."
"But there Is. an American among
us!" said Johnson.
Hatteras could not repress an Im
"I kndw it!" he said, sternly.
"We can't leave him behind," added
"No, we can't," repeated Hatteras,
"And he will be sure to go, too."
""He will be sure to go, too; but who
"And if you all obey my orders, will
the Yankee refuse?"
"I shouldn't think so; but Buppose
he should, what then?"
"He and I must fight It out"
The three Englishmen looked at
Hatteras, but said nothing. Then tho
doctor asked how they were to go.
"By the coast, as far as possible,"
H'as the reply.
"ButjWhat if we find open water, as
Is llktfly: enough?"
"Wtfll," we'll, go across 'it'!
"Bu.we have np boatft "
Hatteras lld hot answer, and looked
"Perhaps," suggested Bell, "we might
make 8 ship out of some o'f the planks
of the' Porpoise."
"Neyerl" exclaimed Hatteras, vehe
mently. "Never!" Bald Johnson.
The 'doctor shook his head. He un
derstood the feeling of the captain.
"Never!" reiterated Hatteras. "A
boat made out of an American ship
vould be an American!"
"But, captain " began Johnson.
The, doctor made a sign to the old
boatswain not to press the subject fur
tl.er. This ended the day, and the night
passed without disturbance. Tho bears
had evidently disappeared.
The first business next day was to
arrange' for a hunt It was settled
that Altamont, Bell, and Hatteras
shoula' form the party, Clawbonny
should go and explore as .far. as Isle
Johnsdn, and make some hydrographlc
notes, -.and Johnsbn should remain be
hind to keep house.
At 8 o'clock they started, accompa
nied by' Duke, who frisked and gam
boled .with delight They had been
bone .about an .hour when Johnson
suddenly heard the report of a gun.
"Capital!" he ' 'exclaimed. "They

A second and a third shot followed.
"Bravo!" again exclaimed the boat
swain; "they have fallen In luck's
But'when thred more shots came In
rapid succession, the old man turned
pale, apd a thought crossed his mind
whlchVmade him rush out and climb
liastllat the top of the cone.
Ho shuddered at the sight which met

Hatjexas, who brought up the rear,
could nly manage to keep off his pur
suers 'by flinging down ono article
after another- first his cap, then his
hatchot 'and, finally, his, gun.' Hp knew
that the inauUltlvo bara would 'stoo
and cxamino every object, sniffing nil
round it, 'and this gave him a llttlo
time, otherwiso ho could not have es
caped, for theso animals outstrip tho
fleetest horso, and ono monster was
so near that Hatteras had to brandish
his knife vigorously, to ward off a tro-
mendous blow from his paw.
At last, though panting and out of
breath, tho three mon reached Johnson
safely, and slid down tho rock with
him lnt6 tho snow houso. The bears
stopped short on tho upper plateau,
and Hatteras and his. companions lost
no time In barring and barricading

Hatteras, "we can defend ourselves
better now. It Is fivo against five,"

pointing to the empty sitting room.

in this fashion," said Altamont
"No, lot us be off to him at once,'
Ho opened tho door, but soon shut
It narrowly escaping a bear's hug.
"They are there!" ho exclaimed.
"All?" asked Bell.
"The whole pack."
Altamont rushed to tho windows.
and began to fill up the deep embra
sure with blocks of Ice, which ho broko
off the walls of tho house.
His companions followed his exam
ple silently. Not a sound was heard
but the low, deep growl of Duke.
They were besieged.
All were worried about tho good
"We must get rid of the bears before
he comes," said Hatteras.
"But how?" asked Bell.
It was difficult to reply to this. A
sortie was out of the question. They
could hear the bears prowling about
outside, growling and scraping the
walls with their enormous paws.
However, action must be taken
speedily. Altamont resolved to try a
porthole through which he might fire
on his assailants. He scooped out a
hole In the wall, but his gun was hard
ly pushed through when it was seized
with Irresistible force and wrested
from his grasp before he could even
"Confound It!" ho exclaimed, "we're
no match for them." ' '
He hastened to stop up the breach
as fast as possible.
This state of things had lasted up
wards of an hour, and there seemed
no prospect of a termination.
Tho question of a sortie began now
to be seriously discussed. There was
little chance of success, as the bears
could not be attacked separately, but
Hatteras and his companions had
grown Impatient Also they were
ashamed of being kept in prison by
He took Johnson's furnace poker and
thrust it Into the stove, while he
made an opening In the snow wall, or,
rather, a partial opening, for he left a
thin sheet of ice on the outer side.
As soon as the poker was red hot he
said to his comrades, who stood eager
ly watching him, wondering.
"This red hot bar will keep off the
bears when they try to get hold of It,
and we -shall be able easily to fire
across It without letting them snatch
away our guns."
Hatteras withdrew the poker, and
plunged It In the wall. The melting
snow" made' a loud, hissing noise, and
the two bears ran and made a snatch
at the glowing bar; but they fell back
with a terrible howl, and at the same
moment four shots resounded, one
after -the- other.
"Hit!" exclaimed Altamont
"Hit!" echoed Bell.
"Let us repeat It," said Hatteras,
carefully stopping up the opening-
The poker was again thrust Into the
fire, and in a few minutes was ready
for ' Hatteras to recommence opera
Altamont and Bell reloaded their
guns, and took their places; but this
time the poker would not pass through.
"Confound the beasts!" exclaimed
"What's the matter?" asked Johnson.
"What's the matter? Why, they are
piling up block after block, Intending
to bury us alive!"
"Look for yourself; the poker can't
It was worse than alarming. The
bears meant to stifle their prey. They
were heaping up huge masses, which
would mako escape Impossible.
Two hours passed. Tho air grew
close. Every opening was hermetical
ly sealed. Tho stoves would hardly
draw, and it was evident would soon
go out altogether for want of oxygon.
Hatteras was tho first to see their
frosh danger, and he made no attempt
to hide It from his companions.
"If that Is the case," said Altamont,
'we must get out at all risks."
"Yes," replied Hatteras; "but we
must wait till night. We will make
a hole In the room, and let In some
air, and then ono of us can flro out of
It on tho bears."
"It Is the only thing wo can do, I
Buppose," said Altamont
Night drew on, and the lamp In tho
sitting room began to burn dim for
want of oxygen.
At 8. o'clock the final arrangements
were completed, and all that remained
to do was to make an opening in the

Presently this gavo way with a
loud crack, and a huge dark mass
rolled over Into tho room.
Altamont had already swung his
hatchot-to strike, when ho was arrest

"For heaven's sake, stop!"
"Tho doctor! the doctor!" cried
And tho doctor It actually was who

tongues, and each rushed eagorly for

teras was fairly overcome with omo
tibn, and hugged him like a child.
But how did you know wo had
been attacked by a troop of bears?
asked Altamont, when they got their
breath. 'What we wero most afraid
of was that you would como back,
never dreaming of danger."
"Oh, I saw It all. Your repeated
shots gave me the alarm. When you
commenced firing I was beside the
wreck of the Porpoise, but I climbed
up a hummock, and discovered fivo
bears close on your heels. I crept cau
tlously nearor, sometimes going on
all fours, sometimes slipping between
great blocks of Ice, till I came at
last quite close to our fort, and then
I found the bears working away like

"Assuredly!" was the reply.

"My plan Is quite simple, and part

"What do you mean?"
"You shall see. But I am forgetting
that I brought a companion with me."
"What do you say?" said Johnson.
