Their own lung strangling began, and
they rucked snd torn by s dry
cough, aiieamodlc aud uncontrollable
ths Whtslsr Syndloato.
Hmoke noted bis temperature rising iu
a fever, and Labiskwee aulTered simi
larly. Hour after hour the coughing
aiiella Increased In frequency and vio
lence, and not till late afternoon was
the worst reached. After that the
mend came slowly, and between spells
they dozed In exhaustion.
Smoke awoke with Hps touching bis
Hps. Ho lay partly in Lablskwee'a
arms, bis head pillowed on her breast
Her voice was cheerful and usual. Tbe
mil 111 ed sound of It had vanished.
"It Is day," she said, lifting the edge
of tho robes a trifle. "See, oh, my
lover, It Is day! Wo have lived through,
and we no longer cough. Let us look
at thn world, though I could stay here
thus forever and always."
"I do not hear McCnn," Smoke said.
"And what has become of the young
men that they have not found us?"
He threw back tho r olios and saw a
normal and solitary sun in the sky. A
gentle breeze was blowing, crisp with
frost and hinting of warmer days to
come. All the world was natural
again. McCan lay on his back, his un
washed face, swarthy from camp
smoke, frozeu hard as marble. The
Iglit did not affect Luhlskwee.
"Look!" she crlod. "A snowbird! It
Is a good slgu."
There was no evidence of the young
men. Either they had died on tbe oth
er aide of the divide or bad turned
There was ao little food that they
dared not eat a tithe of what they
needed, and lu the days tbat followed,
wandering through the lone mountain
laud, the sharp sting of life grew blunt
ed, and the wandering merged half
Into a dream. Smoke would become
abruptly conscious to And himself star
ing at the never ending hated snow
peaks, bis senseless babble still ringing
In his ears. And the next he would
know, after seeming centuries, was
that again be was roused to the sound
of bis own liiniiuderlngs. Luhlskwee,
too, whs light bended moat of the time.
Cm mo a day when it turned cold and
a thick snow, that was not snow, but
frimt crystals of tho size of grains of
Hiiud, began to fall. Kor three dnys
and nights It continued to fall. It was
Impossible to travel until It crusted un
der the spring sun, so they lay In their
t urs and rested and ate less because
they rested. So small was the ration
they permitted that It gave no nppcaso
meiit to the hunger pang that was
much of the stomach, but more of the
brain. And I.ublskwee, delirious, mad
dened by the taste of ber tiny portion,
sobbing and mumbling, fell upon the
next day's portion and crammed It Into
ber mouth,
Then It was given to Smoke to see a
wonderful thing. The food between
ber teeth roused ber to consciousness.
She spat it out and with a great auger
struck herself with her clinched list ou
the offending mouth.
It was given to Hmoke to see ninny
wonderful things lu the days yet to
Clime. After the long snowfall came
ou a great wind that drove tho dry
and tiny frost particles as sand Is driv
en In a iiantl.stnriii. All through the
night the sand frost drove by, and tn
the full light of a clear and wind
blown day Smoke looked with swim
ming eyes aud reeling brain upon what
ho took to lie the vision of a dream.
All about towered great peaks, and
from tin- tip of every peak, swaying,
undulating. Muring out broadly against
the iiiiio sky, streaiiUHl gigantic snow
banner, miles lu length, milky mid
nebulous, ever waving llr.hts and shad
ows and (lashing silver from the sun.
l.ablkwee sat up among he furs.
"I diva in, I.ablskwee," be said.
"Look. lo you, tot. d i vii m within my
d i earn?"
"It Is no dream," she replied. "This
have the old men told me. And after
this will blow the warm winds, and
we shall live and win west."
Smoke shot a snowbird, nud they
divided It. Once, In a valley where
willows budded standing In the snow,
he shot a Miowshoe nibblt. Another
time, lie gut ii lean while weasel.
"It Is minimer lu the lower valleys,"
said Ijihiskweo. "Soon wilt It Is) sum
uier here."
The days lengthened, and the snow
began to sink. Kach day the crust
thawed, each night It frose again, nud
they were afoot early and late, being
compelled to camp and rest during the
midday In mm ,if uiw when the crust
could not liesr their Weight. When
Sinokw giw snow blind Lublskwee
towed lilm ou a thong tied to ber
waist. And when she was so blinded
she was owts by a thong to bis waist.
And, starving, In a deeper dream, (hey
struggled on through nn awakening
land bare of any lire sure their own.
The time came wlieu the last food
was gone. The high Hak receded,
the divides became lower, and the way
oeuod promisingly to the west. Hut
their nwcrvca of strength were gone,
aud. wit limit food, the time quickly fol
lowed when i hey lay down at night
and In the morning did not arise.
Smoke weakly gain. si his feet, col
lapsed and on bauds and knees crawl
ed about the building of a Ore. But,
try as she would, Labiskwee sank back
each time In nn extremity of weak
ness. And Smoke sank down beside
ber, a wan sneer on his face for the
automatism tbat bad made him strug
gle for an unneeded tire. There was
nothing to cook, and the day was
Wonder of Woman.
LABISKWEE lay in a stupor, her
breathing so Imperceptible that
J ofteu Smoke thought ber dead.
In tho afternoon tho chatter
ing of a squirrel aroused him. Drag
ging the heavy rifle, he wallowed
through tbe crust that bad become
slush. He crept on bands and knees
or stood upright and fell forward In
the direction of the squirrel that chat
tered Its wrath and fled slowly and
tnntulizlngly before lilm. He had not
tbe strength for u quick shot aud the
squirrel was never still.
So profound was bis weakness that
be lay like dead through the night, nor
did dreams disturb blin.
The sun was In the sky, the same
squirrel chattering through the trees,
when Lablskwee'a baud on Smoke's
cheek awakened blin.
"Put your band on my heart, lover,"
she said, ber voice clear, but faint and
very far away. "My heart is my love,
and you hold It In your hand " A long
time seemed to go by ere she spoke
again. "Itemember nlways there Is no
way south. That Is well known to tbe
caribou people. West that Is the way
aud yon lire almost there and you
will make it."
And Smoke drowsed In tho numbness
that is near to death until once more
she aroused him.
'Tut your lips on mine," she said. "1
will die so."
"We will die together, sweetheart,"
whs bis answer.
"No." A feeble flutter of her hand
checked him, nnd so thin was her voice
that scarcely did he bear It. yet did be
hear nil of It. Her hand fumbled and
groped In tbe hood of ber parka, and
she drew forth u pouch that she placed
In bis bund. "And now your lips, my
lover. Your lips on my lips nud your
bund on my heart"
And In that long kiss darkness came
upon him uguln, and when again he i
was conscious be knew that ho was to
die. He was wearily glud that bo was
to die.
He found his band resting on the
pouch. With uu inward smile at the
Tlire Days, With No Further Food, Ha
Fought West.
curiosity that made him pull the draw
string, he opened It. Out poured a
tiny tlood of food. There was no par
ticle of It that hu did not recognize, all
stolen by Luhlskwee from Labiskwee
bread fragments saved far back; snips
and Btrlngs of caribou meat, partly
gnawed; crumbles of suet; a hind leg
of the siiowshoe rabbit, uutouclied; a
bind leg nud part of a fore leg of the
white weasel; a wing, dented stilt by
her reluctant teeth, and a leg of the
snowbird-pitiful remnants, tragic re
nunciations, crncHlxlons of life, mor
sels stolen from her terrible hunger by
her Incredible love.
With mauliiciil laughter Smoko flung
It nil out ou the hardening snow crust
and went back Into the blackness.
He dreamed. The Yukon ran dry.
In its bed, among muddy pools of wa
ter and Ice scoured rocks, he wandered,
picking up fnt nugget gold. The
weight of It grew to bo a burden to
him till he discovered thut It was good
to eat. And greedily be ate After
all, of what worth was gold that men
should prlie it so, save that It wao
good to eat?
He awoke to another sun. His bralu
was strangely clear. No longer did his
eyesight blur. The familiar pulpits
ttou that hud vexed him through all hi
frame whs gone. The Juices of his
body seemed to sing as If the spring
had entered It HIcKscd well being had
come to Iii in. He turn it I to awaken
I.nhlskwce and saw and ivnionitered
He looked for the food flung out on the
snow. It was gone. And be knew tbat
lu delirium and dream It had Ihvii the
Yukon nugget gold. In delirium aud
dream he hud taken heart of life from
the life aucrlflce of Itblskwev, who
had put her heart In his hand and
opened his aye to woman and wonder.
He was surprKd at the easo of his
movements, astounded that he was
able to drag her Mr wrapped body to
tbe exposed thawed gravel bank, wmcn
he undermined and caved upon ber.
Three days, with no further food, he
fought west In the mid third day ho
fell beneath a lone spruce beside a
wide stream tbat ran open and that
he knew must be tbe Klondike. Ere
blackness conquered blm he uulashed
his pack, said, goodby to tbe bright
world and rolled himself in tbe robes.
Chirping, sleepy noises awoke him.
The loug twilight was on. Above him
among the spruce bows were ptarmi
gan. Hunger bit him Into instant ac
tion, though the action was infinitely
slow. Five minutes passed before he
was able to get bU rifle to his shoul
der, and a second live minutes passed
ere he dared, lying on his back and
aiming straight upward, to pull the
trigger. It was a clean miss. No bird
fell, but no bird flew. Tiey ruffled
and rustled stupidly nnd drowsily, nis
shoulder pained him. A second shot
was spoiled by tbe Involuntary wince
he made as he pulled trigger.
The ptarmigan had not flown. He
doubled and redoubled tbe robe that
had covered him and bumped it In the
hollow between bis right arm nnd his
side. Resting tbe butt of the rifle on
the fur, be tired again, and a bird fell.
Ho clutched it greedily and found that
be had shot most of the meat from tt.
Tbe large caliber bullet bad left little
else than a mess of mangled feathers.
Still the ptarmigan did not fly. and
be decided that It was heads or noth
ing. He fired only at heads. He re
loaded and reloaded the magazine. He
missed; he hit nnd the stupid ptarmi
gan, that were loath to fly, fell upon
him In a rain of food-lives disrupted
that bis life might feed and live.
The first he ate raw. Then he rested
and slept, while his life assimilated the
life of It. In tho darkness he awoke.
hungry, with strength to build a fire.
nd until early dawn he cooked and
ate, crunching the bones to powder be
tween his long Idle teeth. He slept,
awoke In the darkness of another
night and slept again to another sun.
He noted with surprise that the fire
crackled with fresh fuel and that a
blackened coffeepot steamed on the
edge of tbe coals. Beside the fire,
within arm's length, sat Shorty, smok
ing a brown paper cigarette and Intent
ly watching lilm. Smoke's lips moved,
but a throat paralysis seemed to come
upon htm, while bis chest was suf
fused with the menace of tears. He
reached out his baud for the cigarette
and drew tbe smoke deep Into bis
lungs again and again.
"I have not smoked for a long time,"
he said at last In a low, calm voice.
"For a very long time."
"Nor eaten, from your looks," Shorty
added gruffly.
Smoke nodded and waved his hand
at the ptarmigan feathers that lay all
about "Not until recently," be return

"Hut you're feeble as n kid baby.

"Shorty, I am going after tbe biggest

than lakes of goia and tnountulns of

Shorty sut with bulging eyes. "In
the name of the Lord, what Is it?" be
queried huskily. "Or are you Just slm

"No, I'm nil right. Tcrhaps n fellow
has to stop eating lu order to see

Shorty's mouth opened, nnd about
the Hps nnd tn the light of the eyes
was the w hltnslciil .advertisement of
the sneer forthcoming.
"Don't, please," Smoke said gently.
"You don't know, r do."
Shorty gulped and changed his
thought. 'uii! I don't need no
