and fixed the Sid of February for

towards him, and watched him so at
lentively that In a few minutes he
made out a word that sounded like
Porpoise. Stooping over him he asked:
"Is It the Porpoise?"
Altamont made a sign In the affirm

queries, now that he had found a clew.
"In these seas T"
The affirmative gesture was repeated.
"Is she in the north?"
Do you know her position?"
For a minute or so nothing more was

By further patient Questioning after
a rest, tb doctor soon ascertained that
tbs Porpoise was s three-mast Amert
saa ship, from Kr York, wracked sa
the tee. with provisions and combustl
cles In abundance on board.
Altamont and his crew had left her
two months previously, taking the long
boat with them on a slcdse. They In
tended to get to Smith s sound and
reach some whaler that would take
them back to America; but one after
another succumbed to fatijrue and ill
ness, till only Altamont remained alive.
-Why had the Porpoise come so far
north?" Hatteras asked.
"She was Irresistibly driven there by
the Ice." Altamont replied, feebly.
Hatteras looked grim but said noth
"Well." said the doctor, "It strikes
me that Instead of trying to ret to
Baffins bay. our best plan would be to
go In search of the Porpoise It's a
third nearer, and stocked with every
thing necessary for winter quarters."
1 see no other course open to us."
"If we start to-morrow." said the
doctor, "we must reach the Porpoise by
the 15th of March, unless we mean to
die of starvation.
No time was lost in retting ready to
start. A couch was laid on the sledge
for the American. The provisions did
not add much weight, and the wood
was plied up on top.
The doctor calculated with three
quarter rations to each man and full
rations to the dogs, they might hold
out for three weeks.
By S In the afternoon everything was
ready for the start.
It was almost dark, for, though the
sun had reappeared above the horizon
since the Slst of January. Its light was
feeble and of short duration. The
moon would rise about half-post 8.
The days wore on. Progress was
slow. Blinding snow storms held them
back. Moreover, the men. In spite of
their Iron will began to show signs
of fatigue. Halts became more fre
quent and yet every hour was pre
cious, for the provisions were rapidly
coming to an end.
On the 14th of March, after sixteen
days' march, the little party found
themselves only yet In the eighty-second
latitude. Their strength was ex
hausted, and they had a hundred miles
more to go. Puitions had to be stIU
further reduced. Each man must be
content with a fourth part to illow
the dogs their full quantity.
Hil-IEiUS F1BXD A.ND THE BLAB ROLLED

Worst of all there were only seven
charges of powder left and six balls.
A little game was shot but quickly
devoured. The weary men could hard
ly drag themselves along by now. The
dogs had began to gnaw their traces.
Their last meal, on the Sunday even
ing, was a very sad one-unless help
came, their doom was sealed.
