The camp was ashore in a dense copse of poplar and willow. A fresh"fall snow showed no tracks between barges and shore. So far, so good. Scouting the camp, we discoved it consisted of about 15 whit* men pkw an old Pawnee camp cook and two Arikaree. apparently either meat-hunters for the camp or guide* for th« coming trading season. 1 saw nothing of Slate- meyer but discounted the fact.

The barges were crammed with squat, nine-gallon kegs, certainly well over 100 of them to the barge each painstakingly stenciled with the innocuous legend. "Caution Kerosene: Keep Away From Fires." From stem to stern and beam to oeara the three barges reeked o alcohol. I had caught my trien< Slatemeyer with nearly 3000 gal .ons of trade whiskey.

Thus, a few moments later, when ny fur-clad crew cniue slithering p through the snowfall then be- inning, 1 gave them their orders romptly. My cohorts went about the bus- ness of smashing the big oil bar- els and dousing kerosene all over ic barge holds, "each grinning as iappily as any schoolboy pulling rings off s horsefly. In minutes the night air was re- lolent with coal-oil fumes and Yellow Bird, my lieutenant, irought me the smoldering buckskin bag of live coals lovingly prepared ashore in a smokeless, hardwood fire no bigger than a man's wo hands, "Oo now and wait where the rail leads from the camp." 1 tok lim. accepting the fire, "When you see the fire burst forth, all sha 'ollow as we have planned it Am I understood ?" He nodded assent, a sibilan chorus of gninls from the other* backing him up. tfE moment there were 10 Sioux within five feet of me. the next nothing but invisible yarde swirling snow Swiftly I dumped Ihe living coal among the pile of oil-soaked shav ings we had prepared. I had scarcely hit the woode shore before the barges went u with a boom .that lit the .snow smothered night for hundreds o feet. As anticipated, Slatemeyer's me came bucketing out of their bu and ofT down the trail to the burn ing barges. Yellow Bird played them per fectly. letting the first pack go b falling on ihe smaller followin group with the customary enthu si a sin of his kind when the pros pect is fab: for a wedding of Siou steel and Caucasian cranium. Half an hour later when we ndezvoused he brought with him ght Sioux, the required "live" hiie man. five warm scalps, and n innocent-look ing burden care- ssly tied in a hunting shirt. "Good.

"But our time was short nd we wanted Cetan Man* to now the true count. Ordinarily." ie added, humbly. ie l would not ake a scalp in such poor condi- ion." • • * T HAD forgotten the prisoner! AN this time the poor brute had not said a word, standing gray-sick with terror. I thought ii queer ie had made no plea to me, his fel- ow white man. I asked him bluntly, using English for the first time, "Why laven't you spoken to me? Whi don't you ask for mercy? Aren' fou Interested in breathing?"
