the more they became sheltered.
Undents ultornntely paced up and
down and stood motionless, evidently
shrinking from any approach to the

In about an hour the doctor return

Amnrlcoti, on the stodge, wrapped up
In 'lie folds of the tent. The doKS were
so eslinusled from starvation that they
could scarcely draw It alonir, and they
had begun lo uriitw their harness.
While tho hut was being dug out

had tho Kood fortune to find a little

The American was broueht In and
laid on blankets, and the four English
men seated themselves around the fire
lo enjoy their scanty meal of biscuit
and hot tea, the last remains of the
provisions on the sledge. Not a word
was spoken by Ilatteras, and the oili
er respected his silence.
When the meal was over, the doctor
rose and went out, making a lgn to
Johnson to follow,
"Come, Johnson," he said, "our goods
or scnttered In all directions. We had
better pick them up as fast a possi
ble, for tho snow may fall at any mo
ment, ana Uisn It would be qulto use
less to look for anything."
"Don't 1st us lose a minute, then,"
replied Johneon. "Fire and wood
Uieee are our chief wants."
"Very well, you search on side and
Til take the other, and we'll take from
the center to the circumference."
This task occupied two hour, and
all they discovered was a little alt
meat, about fifty pounds of pemmlcan,
throe sacks of biscuits, a small stock
of chocolate, five or six pints of brandy,
and about two pounds of coffee, picked
up been by bean off the ten.
Neither blankets, nor hammocks, nor
clothing, were found all had been con
sumed In the devouring flame.
This slender store of provisions
would hardly last three weeks, and
they had wood enough to supply the
stove for about the same time.
CepL J lot tents, with Ilell and tho
doctor, had been away on an exploring
expedition when the mutiny occurred.

him. Bhandon mads no attempt at dis

their privations and tolls were at an
end. Heonomy was entirely disregard

stove, nnd the men were allowed to eat
and drink all them wanted. Not only
was tea and coffee at their disposal,
but all the liquor. On men who had
been so long deprived of strong drink,
