In a Far Country ssexK-xaaasissx.*.^^ The Gold Seeivers Who Journeyed Into the Silence and Peace of th.e Arctic and Who Never .Came Bach.

The Frenchman in Baptiste shrugged his shoulders, bat tbe Indian in him was silent. NOTGI thele^s it was an eloquent shrug, prrgnant with prophecy. * * * * * * * Things prospered In the little cabin first The rough badinage of tboir Xext their muscles and joints began to swell, the flesh turning black, while their months, gums and lips took on the color of rich cream. Instead of being drawn together by their misery, each gloated over the other's symptoms as the scurry took its course. They lost all regard for personal appearance and. for that matter, common decency. The cabin became a pigpen, and never once were the beds made or fresh pine boughs laid underneath. Yet they could not keep to their blankets, as they would hare wished, for the frost was Inexorable, and the flre box consumed much fuel. The hair of their heads aud faces grew long,and shaggy, while their garments would comrades had made Weatherbee and ! ( h a T e disicustcd a ra ppi cke r. But they dlfi not'care. They were sick, and there was no one to see. Besides, It was very painful to move about To all this was added a new trouble --the fear of tbe north. This fear was the joint child of the great cold and the great silence and was born in the si»nsibillty which had devolved upon them. Besides, theie was not so much Tvork, after all, for two healthy men. And the removal of the cruel whip hand. or. in other words, the bulldozing half breed, had brought with it a Joyous reaction. At first each strove to outdo the other, and they performed petty tasks with an unction which would have opened the eyes of their comrades who were now wearing out bodies and souls on the long trail. All care wts banished. The forest, which shouldered in upon them from three sides, was an inexhaustible wood yard. A few yards from their door slept the porcupine, and a bole through itii winter robe formed a bubbling darkness of December, when the sun dipped below the southern horizon for good. It affected them according to their natures. "VTeatlierbee fell prey to the grosser superstitions and (lid his best to resurrect the spirits which slept ia the -forgotten graves, it was d. fascinating thing, and in his dreams they came to him from oat of the cold tuid snuggled into hia blankets and told Mm of their toils and troubles ere spring of water, crystal clear and pain-, the - T died - Hc shraol f avf "? £rom the fully cold, But the? soon grew to find fault with even that. The hole would persist in freezing up anO thus gave them many a miserable hour of ice chopping. The unknown builders of the cabin had extended the side logs so as to support a cache at the rear. In this WES stored the bulk of the party's provisions. Food there was, without stint, for three times the men who were fated to live upon it. But the most of It was of tho kind which built clammy contact as they drew closer nnd twined their frozen limbs about him, nnd when they whispered in his oar of thiuga to come the cabin rang with his frightened shrieks. Cuthfen did not understand, for they no longer spoke, and when thus awakened he invariably grabbed for his revolver. Then he wonld sit up in bed, shivering nervously, with the weapon trained on the unconscious dreamer. Cuthfert deemed the man going mad and so came to fear for his life. Vfhat with the fear of the north, the mental strain and the ravages of the up brain and sinew, but did not tickle the palate.

Their checks and noses, as an after- xnath of the freezing-, had tamed black. Their frozen toes had bejrun to drop hot "water judiciously saturated with sugar, and they prodigally swam their flapjacks and soaked their crusts ia the rich, white sirup. Then coffee and tea. and especially the dried fm5ts, made disastrous inroads upon it The first words they haJ were over the sngar question. And it Is a really serious thing when two men wholly de- away at the first and second joints. Every movement brought pain, but the flre box was insatiable, wringing a ransom of torture from their miserable bodies. Day in, day out, it demanded its food, a veritable pound of iiesh. anjl they dragged themselves into the forest: to chop wood on their knees.

As the sugar pile urn! other little lux- cries dwindled they began to be afraid they were not getting their proper shares, antl in order that they might not be robbed they fell to gorging themselves. The luxuries suffered in noontime drew near and tbe day dragged himself outside to feast on. the evanescent glow, which was to him an earnest of tbe sun's future intentions. "Weatherbee woe also feeling somowhat better and crawled out beside him. They propped themselves in the snow beneath the move- less wind vane and waited. Tbe stillness of death was about In other climes when nature sub- this gluttouons contest, cs did also the men. In the absence of fresh vegeta-, thcm - I bles and escrcise their blood became, fal!s Iat JmpoTerished, and a loathsome, pur- duecl ftir ' expectancy, a waiting for plish rash ci-ppt over their bodies.

They could remember no song of the pnst; they could conjuro no Bong of the future. This unearthly calm bad always been---the tranquil! silence of eternity. Their eyes were fixed xipon the j north. Unseen, behind their backs, behind the towering rnoun Labis to tho south, tbe sun swept toward the zenith of another sky tlmn theirs. Sole spectators of tbo mighty canvas, they watched the false dawn slowly grow. A faint fianie began to glow and smoulder. It fleepeised In intensity, ringing tbe cbaugcs of reddish yellow, purple and saffron. So bright did it become that Cutnfert thought the" snn must surely be behrad it--a miracle, the sun rising in thc north I Suddenly, without warning and without fading, the canvas was swept clean. Tbere was no color In tbe sky- The light i htuj gone out of tbe day. They caught \ their breaths in half sobs. But, lo, | the air was a-elint with particles o f . scbitillatlnE: frost, and there, to tUe north, tbe wind vane lay la vaguo outline on the suow! A shadow! A shadow! It was exactly midday. They Jerked their beads hurriedly to the sonth. A golden rim peeped over the mountain's suowy shoulder, smiled upon tbem an instant, theo dipped from sJght again. There were tears In their eyes ay they sought each other, A strange softening came over tbem. They felt irresistibly drawn toward each other. The sun was coming bacfc again. It wouJd be witb them tomorrow and tho next day and tbe next. And It would s stay longer every visit, and a time j would corcc when it would ride their i beuven day and night, never once dropping below the sky line. There would be no rJ#ht The fee locked winter woold be broken; the winds would blow and the forests answer; the land would bathe in tho blessed sunshine and life rtuww. fiantl in hand they would quit this horrid dream and jonr- ney back to tbe eoiittilnnd.

Tile nnrthlaud is tbe northliLnd, nnd mfji work out their sonls by strange ni'.ea, which otl)cr men who have not j mnicyed into far countries cannot come to understand. * * * * * « * [ An hour later CniUfert put n pan of bread Into the oven and f^l! to speculating on what the surgeons could do with big feet when ho got buck.

They led him quite gently from tbe cache, which be forgot to clo-^e. That rotLsummatiou was readied; thacsomothfnc: they bad whispered to him in Ills dreams was about to happen. They ' guided him gently, very gently, to the . wo?»dpHc, where they put the a^. in Jils hands. Then thoy helped him ghoi e open tbe cabin door, and ho felt sure they shut it after h i m -- a t least ' ho heard It slain and tho latch fall sharply into place.

There was neither pity nor passion in his ' fare, but rather thc patient, srolirl look i of otic who lias certain 'work to Uo and . goes about It methodically. "I say, what's the matter?" The clerk dodged back, rut tins off Ills retreat to the door, Itut never open! ing his month. "I sny, Cnrter, I say, let's talk.

The tiz bit dee\- iy at the ba.SL- of the spine, nnd Percy, C'-nhfert Tell all mnsciousnebS of his lower limbs leave him. Then Lhe clerk fell heavily upuii him, clutching him by the throat with feeble fingers. The sharp bite of the ax had cuusod Cuth- fert to drop the pistol, und as hia lungs panted for release he fumbled aimlessly for it among the blankpts. Then he remembered. He slid u hand up thc clerk's belt to the sheath knife, and they drew very close to eacU other in that last clinch. Percy Cnthfcrt felt his strength leave j Mm. The lower portion of his body I was useless. The inert weight of ' "\Vcatherbe_e crushed him--crushed him i The little German compartment train--taking him at flying speed into the heart of the German prison camp. Next to him sat a German guard with gun loaded, ready to shoot. The compartment was so small--the train going so fast--the whole thing seemed so impossible. Yet to this daring young American nothing seemed impossible--and as the train Sew, he swung himself up, and--before anybody knew what was going to happen--out of the win- jlow! , I He was terriblyi wounded---he had to cover his wounds with his coat so that his blood would not lead the enemy on his trail. And that was just the beginning of 72 days of fearful adventure--of hiding by day and slipping by night--· of boldly walking past sentries--of starvation--of swimming of rivers--of terror and despair--and of iron nerve. Read this true story--such a story as has never before come out of the war--the story of Lieutenant Pat O'Brien--that daring, dark and agile Irish-American who flew in the Royal Flying Corps, in this paper. What would have been death to any other man was to him a great and glorious adventure. Pie was born in Chicago--he joined the Royal Flying Corps--he was a prisoner of the Germans--but they couldn't hold him. Today his story is listened to breathlessly all over the United States. The Dutch gave him an ovation--the English went wild over him. The King of England received him with joy. And now you can have the whole story by reading A glorious tale of 72 days' escaping from Germany.
