"I will do so."

Do-ne-ho-ga-weh swept bit arm

"Everywhere you see ashet and de

Murray heard tiiy report In silence,
and out his eye over the surrounding
scene before replying.
"It shall be done," he said at Inst.
"Was ever a man so sorely tried by

"So be It I will give orders to have

The battered remnants of our war
party appeared with Ta-wan-ne-ars
walking in the lead, his face once
more a study In Impassive rtgor.
"Murray says we are free, brother,"
he said, stepping to my side.
"It Is true."
The sadness shone momentarily in
"I have had a bad dream, brother,"
he went on. "My Lost Soul Is re

"Every minute that bath passed
since I stepped Into the main cabin
of the New Venture to see the face of

The warriors of the Long House
came pouting through the gates of
the stockade, and their war-whoops
echoed over the forest as they com
menced the work of looting Murray's
establishment and securing tbelr pris
oners. As Marjory and I passed out
of that sinister enclosure, which had
seen so much of wickedness and human
suffering, we had our last Joint
glimpse of Andrew Murray.
"Farewell, my children," he called.
"Bear In mind 'twas Andrew Murray
brought you together. So good coinelli

Wouldn't Be Bluffed
During the early part of the World
war there was considerable hard feel
ing between tome of the regular nary
men at the submarine base and those
of the naval reserves at Ran Pedro.
Many of the salty recruits of the regu
lars bad and showed a feeling of su
periority over the reserves, whose
camp adjoined the base.
One morning a salty recruit who
had about two weeks' service In the
regular navy was doing sentry duty
at the submarine base gale when the
commanding officer of the reserve
camp passed by. The sentry fulled to
salute him.' The commander was a
retired regular navy officer and a
stickler for naval etiquette.
"Why did you not salute mef asked

triumphal procession which traversed
the Long House from the Upper Mo

Thunder Waters as un lllustratlou of
the wrath of the Grnt League.
And I was not sorry that I did so,
for It enabled me to sit beside Do-ne-hogu-wch
and his brother chiefs In
the half-finished stone fort at Jngnra
and hear him lay down the luw of the
Long House to Jouculre, as representa

"Qua, 0 Joucalre, mouthpiece of
Onoutlo who rules at Quebec," he said.
"We people of the Long House come
to you tu peace. And we give into

promised that they should come here,
and we have fullllled our promise.
But we have set a bar across the

ask him to assist us In wiping out this

"I have heard your message, O roy-an-ehs

replied Joucalre. "I will repeat It to
Onoutlo, but I do not think It will be
welcome lu his ears."
From Pearl Street to Hudson's
The sun bathed the dust of Pearl
street wherever It could steal between
the layers of the thick-leafed boughs
overhead. I lounged on the doorstep
of our cozy, red-brick house by the
corner of Uurden street and reread
the letter from Master Juggins which
the suercargo of the Bristol packet
had delivered a balf-bour earlier.

Color, Expert Thinkt
A freer use of color In modern build
ings Is advocated by the clinlrmnu of
Architectural and Allied Arts exposi
tion. He hopes to see American cities
take on color to such an extent that It
will make life more Interesting and
more cheerful. He suggests that the
shnde used lu a building should suit
the needs and general atmosphere of
Its locality, mentioning green as
soothing antidote for the high tension
of the Wull street neighborhood. Con
versely, suburban regions of peace
aud qulut might run to guy reds, yel
low and orange to counteract a too
constant calm. Broadway and the the
atrlcul district cull for rose color, or
perhaps primrose. The vicinity of the
Tombs suggests purple for tlnj proper
motif. Tropical cities have long used
brilliant pinks and blues lu their make
up. Even southern California boasts
of brightly colored buildings which
would seem startling If set down In
the gray aud tun and buff of Northern
ind Eastern cities. Anglo Siuons are
thy of color, and If American men are
anything like as self-conscious about
