CONAN DOYLE, Aotlior of "The Return of Sherlock Holmes' COPYRIGHT. 15D3. BY (Continued from Thursday.) jam mere was unotnor wnosu view 01 duty led him from safety Into the face of danger. All night the Franciscan had watched Do Catlnat as a miser ' watches his treasure, filled with tho thought that this heretic was tho one little seed which might spread and spread until Jt chokod tho chosen vine yard of tbo church. He, too, clambered down at the very hoels of hl3 prisoner and rushed into tho stream not ten paocs behind blm. And bo the watchers at tho window saw tho strangest of sights. There In midstream lay the canoe, with Its bur den of darti warriors, and the two wo men crouching In tho midst of them. Swimming madly toward them was Do Catlnat, rising to the shoulders with the strength of every stroke, and be hind him again was the tonsured bead of tho friar, with bis dark capot and long trailing gown floating upon tho surfaco of tho water. But In his zeal ho had thought too little of his own powers. He was a good swimmer, but ho was weighed and hampered by his unwieldy clothes. Slower and slower grew his stroke and lower and lower his head until at last, with a great shriek of "In manus tuas, Domlncl" he throw up his hands and vanished in tho swirl of the river. A minute later tho watchers, hoarse with screaming to him to return, saw Dc Catlnat pulled aboard tho Iroquois canoe, which was Instantly turned and continued Its course up the river. "My God!" cried Amos hoarsely. "They have taken him! He is lost!" "I havo seen some strange things in these forty years, but never tho like of that!" said Du Lhut The seigneur took a little pinch of snuff from his gold box and flicked the wandering grains from his shirt front with his dnlnty lace handker chief. "M. de Catlnat has acted llko a gen tleman of France," said he. Du Lhut glanced round him and shook his head. "We uro only six now," said be. "I fear that they r.ro Tap to some deviltry because they arc so very still." "They are leaving the house"' cried the censltalre, who was pcep!u; through one of tho side windows "What can It moan? Holy Virgin. If It possible that wo arc saved? Sou how thoy throng through tho trees! They are making for the canoe." On tho river tho single Iroquois ca noe, which held tho captives, was speeding south ns swiftly as twenty paddles could drlvo It; but, sava thin ono dark streak upon tho blue stream. not a sign was to bo seen of their en emies. "By my faith, I believe that they havo gone!" cried the seigneur. "Take caro that It Is not a ruse." said Du Lhut. "Why should they fly before six men when thoy have conquered Blxtyr But the censltalre had looked out of tho other window, and in an iustant ho was down upon his knees, with his hands in tho air and his powder black ened faco turned upward pattering out prayers and thanksgivings. Ills five comrades rushed across tho room and burst into a shriek of Joy. The lower reach of the river was covered with n flotilla of canoes, from which tho sun struck quick flashes as it Rhone upon tho musket barrels and trappings of the crows. Already they could see the White coats of the regulars, tho brown tunics of tho courcurs de bois and tho gaudy colors of tho Hurons and Algon qulns. On they swept, dottlug the wholo breadth of tho river and grow ing larger every Instant, whtlo far away on tho southern bend tho Iro quois canoe was a mero moving dot, which had shot away to tho farther sldo and had lost Itself presently under tho shadow of tho treos. Another mln Uto and tho survivors wero out upon tho bank waving their caps In the air, whilo tho prows of tho first of their Wu'lmming madly toward them wot l)e Catlnat. TUB DAILY s HARPER & BROTHERS rescuers were already grating upon tho pebbles. In tho stern of tho very foremost canoe sat a wizened little man with a largo brown wig nnd a gilt headed rapier laid across his knees. Ho sprang out as the keel touched bot tom and, rushing up to tho seigneur, flung himself into his arms. "My dear Charles," he cried, "you have held your house llko a hcrol" "I know ?bat you would not desert a comrado, Chambly. We havo saved the house, but our losses havo been terrible. My son Is dead. My wife Is In that Iroquois canoe." Tho commander of Fort St. Louis pressed his friend's band in silent sym pathy. "Tho others arrived all safe," ho said at last "Only that one was taken on account of tho breaking of a paddle. Three wero drowned nnd two taken. There was a French lady In it, I un derstand, as well as madamo." "Yes, and they havo taken her hus band also." "Ah, poor souls! Well, if you are strong enough to Join us, you and your friends, wo shall follow after them without tho loss of an instant. Ten of my men will remain to guard tho bouso and you can have their canoe," CHAPTER XXV. HE Iroquois had not treated Do Catlnat harshly when they dragged him from the water info then canoe. So incompre hensible was It to them why nny mnn should voluntarily leave n place of safety in order to put himself in their power that they could only set it down to madness, a malady which Inspires awe and respect among tho Indians. Two warriors passed their hands over him to be sure that ho was unarmed, and ho was then thrust down between tho two women, while tho canoe dart ed in toward tho bank to toll the oth ers that tho garrison of Fort St. Louis was coming up tho stream. Adele was deadly pale, and her hand, ns her hus band laid his upon it, was as cold as marble. "My darling," ho whispered, "tell mo that all Is well with you that you nro unhurt!" "Oh, Amory, why did you come? Why did you come, Amory?" "How could I stay behind when I knew that you wore in their hands? We havo gone through so much to gether that wo cannot part now. What Is death, AdalaV Why should we bo afraid of It?" "I am not afraid of it." "And I am not afraid of It. Things will come about as God wills, and what Ho wills must in tho cud bo the best." "Tell mo, monsieur," said Onega, "Is my lord still living?" "Yes, ho i3 nllvo and well." "It is good. Ho 13 a gr?;it chief, nnd I hnvo never been sorry, not oven now. that I havo wedded with one who wan not of my own people. Hut, ah, my son! , Who shall give my son back to me? Ere that sun shines again wo shall all bo dead, and my heart Is glad, for I shall see my boy once more." The Iroquois pnddlers had bent to their work until a good ton milru lay between them nnd Ste. Marie.- Then they ran the canoe Into n llttlo creek upon their own side of tho river and sprang out of her, dragging the prison ers after them. Then, after a short council, they stnrted through tho forest, walking In single fllo, with their threo prisoners In tho middle. There were fifteen warriors In all, eight In front and seven behind, nil anncd with mus kets nud ns swift footed as deer, so that escape was out of tho question. Thoy could but follow on and wait InJ patience for whatever might befall them. All day they pursued their dreary march. Onega had the ridurance of the Indians themselves, but Adelo, In splto of her former Journeys, was foot sore and weary beforo ovenlng. It was ft roller to Do Catlnat, therefore, when the red glow of a great flro bca sud denly through tho tree trunks and thoy canio upon an Indian camp in which was assembled tho greater part of tho war party which had been driven from Ste. Mario. Here, too, wero a number of tho squaws who had como from tho Mohawk nnd Cayuga villages in order to bo nearer to tho warriors. Wigwams had been erected all round In a circle, aud boforo each of them wero tho kot tics, slung upon u tripod of sticks, in which tho erraiug meal was being cooked. In thQ center of all was a very llorco lire, which had been mado of brushwood placed tu a clrclo so as to havo a clear spaco of twelvo feet in tho middle. A polo stood up In tho center of this clearing, nnd something all mot tled with red and black was tied up against It. Do Catlnat stepped swiftly In front of Adelo that sho might not boo the dreadful thing. "They hnvo begun already, then," snld Onega composedly. "Well, It will lo our turn next, and wo shall show them that wo know how to die." "They hnvo not 111 used us yet," said Do Catlnat. "Perhaps they will keep us for ransom or exchange." Tho Indian woman shook her head. "Do not decelvo yourself by nny such hope," said bho. "When thoy nro as geutlo ns they hnvo been with you It Is over a sign that you nro reserved for tho torture. Your wife will bo COOS BAr TIMES, MAltSIZFIELD, OKIWONi FRIDAY, JUNE 21, ilggmKMawwgwartMrwuujuiMMiiiwMiwijipaijijiiwiiiiiBWiwwwiiwiiiiiii ! mi married to ono or tneir cnicrs, Dut you nnd I must die." "Married to an Iroquois!" Those dreadful words shot a pang through both their hearts which no thought of death could havo done. Do Catlnat's head dropped forward upon his chest, and ho staggered and would havo fall en bad Adelo not caught him by tho arm. "Do not fear, dear Amory," slio whis pered. "Other tilings may happen, but not that, for I swear to you that I shall not survive you." As thoy entered tho Iroquois village the squaws nnd warriors had rushed toward them, and they walked through a double lino of hideous faces, which Jcored and gibed and howled at them as they passed. Their escort led them through this rabble and conducted them to a hut which stood apart. An instant later an old war chief, ac companied by two younger braves and by tho bearded half Dutch Iroquois who had led the attack upon tho manor house, strolled over and stood in tho doorway, looking In at the prisoners. Tho Bastard was smoking n stono pipe, nnd yet It was ho who talked the most, arguing apparently with one of tho younger savages, who seemed to como round at last to his opinion. Finally tho old chief said a few short stern words, and tho matter appeared to bo settled. "And you, you beldam," said the Bas tard In French to tho Iroquois woman, "you will have a lesson this night which will teach you to side against your own people!" "You half bred mongrel," replied tho fearless old woman, "you should take that hat from your head when you speak to ono In whoso veins runs "the best blood of tho Onondaga s. You a warrior you who, with n thousand at your back, could not make your way into n little house with a few poor husbandmen within It! It Is no won der that your father's people have cast you out." Tho evil face of tho Bastard grew livid as ho listened to the scornful words which wero hissed at him by tho captive. He strode across to her, and, taking her hand, ho thrust tho fore finger into the burning bowl of his pipe. She made no effort to remove it, but sat with a perfectly set face ror a minute or more, looking out through tho open door at the evening sunlight and tho little groups of chat tering Indians. He watched her keen ly in the hope of hearing a cry or see ing some spasm of agony upon her face, but at last, with a curse, he dashed down her hand and strode from the hut. Sho thrust her charred finger into her bosom and laughed. "He is a good for naught!" sho cried. "Ho does not even know how to tor ture. Now, I could have got a cry out of him. I am sure of it But you, monsieur, you are very white!" "It was the sight of such a hellish deed. Ah, If wo were but set face to face, I with my sword, ho with that weapon ho chose, he should pay for it with I1I3 heart's blood!" Tho Indian woman seemed surprised. "It ia strango to me," sho said, "that you should think of what befalls me when you aro yourself under tho same shadow. But our fato will be as I said. You aro to die at the stake. Sho is to bo given to tho dog who has loft us." "Adole! Adele! What shall I do?" Ho tore his hair in his- helplessness and distraction. "No, no, fear not, Amory, for my heart will not fall me. What is tho pang of death if it binds us together?" "The younger chief pleaded for you, saying that tho Mltcho Manltou had stricken you with madness, as could be seen by your swimming to their canoe, and that a blight would fall upon tho nation If you wero led to tho stake. But the Bastard said that love camo often like madness among tho palefaces and that It was that alono which had driven you. Then It was agreed that you should die and that she should go to his wlgwnm, since ho had k)d the war party. As for, mo, their hearts wore bitter against mo, and I al30 am to dlo by tho plno splin- "Now; at once. They have gono to mnko nil ready. But you have time yet, for I am to go first." "Amory, Amory, could wo not dlo to gether now?" cried Adele, throwing her arms round her husband. f It bo sin, It Is surely a sin which will bo for given us. Let us go, dear. Let us leave these dreadful people nnd this cruel world and turn whero wo shall find peace." Tho Indian woman's eyes flashed with satisfaction. "You havo spoken well, White Lily," said sho. "Why should you wait until It Is their pleas ure to pluck you? See! Already tho glaro of their flro beats upon the treo trunks, and you can hear tho bowlings of thoso who thirst for your blood. You havo said rightly, Whlto Lily. Thero lies tho only path for you." "But how to take it? Onega glanced keenly at tho two warriors who stood as sentinels at tho door of tho but. They had turned away, absorbed in tho horriblo prepa rations which wero going on. Then sho rummnged deeply within tho folds of her looso gown and pulled out a snuill pistol with two brass barrels aud double triggers In tho form of winged dragons. It was only a toy to look at, nil carved and scrolled and graven with tho choicest work of tho Paris gunsmith. For Its beauty tho selgueur had bought It at his last visit to Quebec, and yet It might bo useful, too, and It was loaded in both barrels. "I meant to uso It on myself," said sho as she slipped Iflnto the hnnd of Do Catlnat. "But now I am minded to show them that I can dlo as an Onon daga should dlo and thnt I am worthy to havo tbo blood of their chiefs In my vclus. Tnko it, for I swear that I will not uso It myself uuless it bo to flro both bullets Into that Bastard's heart" (To Bo Conrmnca.y 1001. ml miUHdbi FOR SALE ouschold gpds for sale and h, iso for ront.AAddress Mrs. J.
