with the parly back to Kuslak. On the
w'iy Hh«i*a'* pleadings to his manhood
to be fair to Elilot prevail and he leads
her to Trclawney's body.
With the fierce willfulness of hi*
temperament he tried to tread under
foot his doubts übout the guilt of Holt
and Elliot. Success had made him
arrogant and he was not a good loser.
He haled the man who had robbed him
of Shebn. hut be could not escape re
specting hlin. Elliot hod foujjlit until
he hnd been hommered down Into un
consciousness ond he had crawled lo
his feet onil stood erect with the smile
of the unconquered on his lips. Was
this the sort of man to murder In cold
blood a kindly old gentleman who had
never harmed hlin?
The only nnswer Macdonald found
was thnt Milton had taken him nnd
Jils partner by surprise. They had
been driven to shoot tho cashier tO
cover up their crime. Perhaps nolt or
another had fired Ihe actual shots, but
Elliot was none the less guilty. The
Ihcart of the_ Scotsman, was bitter
'within him. lie intended to see that
his enemies paid to the last ounce. lie
would Hurry them to the gallows If
money and Influence could do It.
None the less, his doubts persisted.
If they had planned the bank robbery,
why did they wait so long to buy sup
plies for their escape? Why had they
not taken the river Instead of the hill
trail? The story that his enemies told
hung together. It had the ring of
truth. Tho facts supported It.
One piece of evidence in their favor
Macdonald alone knew. It lny burled
In the deep snows of the hills. He
shut his strong teeth In the firm re
solve that It should stay there.
• ••.*•* •
The weather htitl moderated a good
denl, but the trail was a protected
forest one. The two teams now going
down had come up, so thnt fhe path
was packed fairly hard and smooth.
Holt lay propped on his own sled
against the sleeping-bags. Shebn
mußhed behind Gordon. She chatted
With them both, but Ignored entirely
the existence of Macdonald, who fol
j lowed with his prize-winning Siberian
Though she tried not to let her lover
know it, Sheba wns troubled at heart.
Gordon was practically the prisoner of
a man whe hated him bitterly, who be
lieved him guilty of murder, and who
would go through flw to bring punish
ment home to him. She knew the
•power of Macdonald. With the money
back of him, he had for two years
fought against and almost prevailed
over a strong public opinion In the
United States. He was as masterful In
his hatred as In his love. The dominant,
flghMng figure In the Northwest, he
trod his sturdy way through opposition
like a Colossus.
Nor did she any longer liavo any
Illusions about him. He could be both
ruthless and unscrupulous when It
suited his purpose. As the day wore
toward'noon, her spirits drooped. Sho
pas tired physically, and this reacted
upon her courage.'
The warmer weather was spoiling
thif trail. It becamo so soft and mushy
thnt though snowshocs were needed,
tlicy could not be worn on account of
the heavy snow which clung to them
every time a foot wns lifted. They
wore mukltiks, but Shebn was wet to
the knees. The spring had gone from
her step. Her shoulders began to sag.
For some time Gordon's eye had
been seeking a good place for a day
camp. He found It In n Jilt of open
timber above the troll, and without a
word he swung his team from the path.
"Where are you going?" demanded
"Going to rest for an hour," was El
liot's curt answer.
Macdonald's Jaw clamped. He strode
forward through the snow beside the
trail. "We'll see about that."
The younger man faced liiin angrily.
"Can't you see she Is done, man? There
Is not another mile of travel In her un
til she hns rested."
The hard, gray eyes of the Alaskan
took In the slender, weary figure lean
ing ngnlnst the sled. On a soft anil
mushy trail like this, where eve/y
footstep punched a hole In the loose
snow, the dogs could not trnved with
any extra weight. A few miles farther
down they would come lo n main-trav
eled road nnd the going would be bet
ter. But till then she must walk. Mac
donald gnvo way with u gesture of his
hand and turned on his heel.
At the campllre Sheba dried her
mukluks, stockings, caribou mitts and
short skirts. Too tired to eut, she
forced herself to swallow a few bites
anil drank eagerly some tea. Oordon
had brought blankets from the sled
anil be persuaded her to lie down for
a few mlnntes.
"You'll call me soon If I should
sleep," sho said drowsily, and her eyes
were closed almost before the words
were off her lips.
When Macdonald came to order Ihe
start half an hour later, she wns still
asleep. "Give her another thirty min
utes," be said gruflly.
Youth Is resilient. Sheba awoke
rested and ready for work.
While Gordon wns untangling the
dogs she was left alone for u minute
with the mine-owner.
The hungry look In his eyes touched
her. Impulsively she held out her
"You're going to be folr, aren't you,
Mr. Macdonald? Been use you—don't

He looked straight. Into the dnrk.
appealing eyes. "I'm going to lie folr
to Robert Milton," he told her harsh
ly. "I'm going to see his murderer*
hanged If It costs me every dollar I
have In tho world."
"None of us object* to Justice," she
told hlrn proudly. "Gordon has noth
ing to fear If only the truth Is told."
"Then why come to me?" ho de
She hesitated; then with a wlstfal
little smile, spoke what was In her
heart. "I'm afraid you won't do Jus
tice to yourself. You're good—and
brave—and strong. But you're very
willful and set. I dont want to lose
my friend. I want to know that he I*
all I hnve believed him—a great man
who stand* for the thing* that are fine
and clean and Just."
"Then It Is for my snke and not for
his that you want me to drop the ease
against Elilot?" he asked Ironically.
"For yours and for his, too. Yon

hurt from outside —not unless he Is a

"I don't doubt that. He and bis |
friend Holt are great little explainers." |
In spite of his bitterness Sheba felt
n change In him. She seemed to
have a glimpse of his turbid soul en
gaged In battle. He turned away with
out shaking hands, but It struck her
that he was not Implacable.
While they wero at luncheon half a
dozen packmules laden with supplies
for a telephone construction line out
fit had passed. Their small, Hharp-stioil
hoofs had punched sink-holes In tho
trail at every step. Instead of a
smooth bottom the dogs .found a
slushy bog cut to pieces.
At the end of an hour of wallowing
Macdonald colled a halt.
"There Is a cutoff Just below here.
It will save us nenrly two miles, but
we'll have to break trail. Swing to tho
right Just below the big willow," he
told Elliot. "I'll Join you presently
and relieve you on the Job. But first
Miss O'Neill and I arc going for a lit
tle side trip."
All three of them looked at him In
sharp surprise. Gordon opened Ills
UPS to nnswer and closed them again
without speaking. Sheba had flushed
a wurnlng to him. •
"I hope this trip Isn't very far of T
tho trail," she said quietly. "I'm Just
a wee bit tired."
"It's not far," tho mine-owner said
He was busy unpacking his sled.
Presently he found the dog moccasins
