Steele returned the letter to St.
Onge with the comment. “Monsieur,
y-u were a soldier of France. To a
letter like this there Is but «me reply—
for a soldier." There was a gllttrr In
the eyes of the American as they met

you won't see the Ice leave the Wall­

leave, I’ll come back on the snow, and
well watch the Ice go out together!”
The hands of the two men met as
they silently pledged each other. Then
Steele's face solw-re-l as hla mind
turned to the greater prublem that
confrr-nted him.
“Hut Lascelles how doea latflamme
know eo much about him?"
“Laflamme was at Fort Albany, four

with latM-ellea. He was suspected of

Steele, “And the letter she sent to
l.ascellea—-when did It go downriver?“
“With the search party from Albany.

much an two weeks"
"And thia letter evidently accounts
for her depression— her sadness."
"Yea Thia matter—and her fear of
Laflamme. She believes that he will
keep his word—try to use force. As
for the letter, sh» refuses to tell me
what she wrote, but I can güeña”
"And of course Las-'elli'« will show

“That 1a what I fear—"
"Hut what d» you Intend to do. mon­

Impatiently demanded Steel»
"What cun I do? I've told her that
I shall never consent to it• that I
would kill her and myself flrat."
There was no solution of this prob­
lem In the mind of the American. It
waa a situation which seemed hopeless
Indeed. If she refused to listen to her

brook Interference from a stranger.
She had burned her bridges, yet some­
