The following morning Brock and
Flash started for the eud of Brock's
trap lines. On bis last- trip be had
made s discovery, from s barren hill
beyond the lust of his Usher snd mar
tea cuba ne traps, which ran along a
timbered ridge. Brock bad studied the
country to the southwest through the
small field-glasses loaned him by bla
father. For miles, the whlta barren
was dotted wltb blue-gray shapes of
feeding caribou. Evidently a winter
migration, of which be had often
heard, was on lie would bring Gas
pard and the team, and they would
store a supply ol frozen meat against
the lean days of the spring when their
supplies would run low.
But Gaspard's traps needed atten

snd bunt alone for two days, then go
hack to bis partner.
It had not snowed for a week, and
over the trail, packed bard by much
use. In 'ha Umber, wlndbiushed and

At the dusk lifted and the white floor
of the barren was vaguely revealed to

'Scattered the deer to the four winds.
Well, I'm going to gel flash, and see

Ituturulng to his camp, Brock hitched
flash to the sled, on which be loaded
his blankets, a shed tent and what

Throughout the morning, although

the west, bis glasses picked out groups

Turning bark Into the timber, Brock
found a sheltered stand of spruce tin
der a ridge, and rutting firewood, start
ed his kettle, dug a sleep hole, lined It
with brush, aud across om end an
chored the canvas with brush.
With flash between his knees, he
waited for the pull to boll.
"You know, old socks," Brock said
to the dog whose narrow, oblique eyes
looked with worship Into the wind

days' travel from home, at d If we
don't get a shot at the deer early
tomorrow, flash has got to eat fish."
At midnight, when the boy turned
out of his robes to freshen the fire,
the stars had been wiped from the sky
as a sHnge wipes clean a slate.
"Snow!" he muttered.
Later when he waked In styglnn
darkness to consult his watch, he
found that It was six o'clock. As
his breakfast kettle heated, the snow
begun to fill, and the wind rose.
"No 'tun! today, flash; home for
