Cready tries to murder Thorpe and at
tacks Isobel. Kazan kills him and then,
fearing the club In punishment, runs away
Into the forest.
Fres From Bonds.
There was a low moaning of the
wind In the spruce tops as Kazan slunk
off Into the blackness and mystery of
the forest. For hours he lay near the
camp, his red and blistered eyes gaz
ing steadily at the tent wherein the ter
rible thing had happened a little while
He knew now what death was. He
could tell it farther than man. He
could smell it In the air. And he knew
that there was death all about him,
and that he was the cause of it. He
lay on his belly in the deep snow and
shivered, and the three-quarters of him
that was dog whined In a grief-stricken
way, while the quarter that was wolf
still revealed itself-menacingly In his
fangs, and in the vengeful glare of %ls
Three times the man—his master —
came out of the tent, and shouted loud
Three times the woman came with
htm. In the firelight Kazan could see
her shining hair streaming about her,
as he had seen It in the tent, when he
had leaped up and killed the other
man. In her blue eyes there was the
same wild terror, and her face was
white as the snow. "Kazan—Kazan—
Kazan!"—and all that part of him that
was dog, and not wolf, trembled Joy
ously at the sound of her voice, and he
almost crept In to take his beating. But
fear of the club was the greater, and
he held back, hour after hour, until
now It was silent again in the tent,
and he could no longer see their shad
ows, and the fire was dying down.
Cautiously he crept out from the
thick gloom, working his way on his
belly toward the packed sledge, and
what remained of the burned logs. Be
yond that slpdge, hidden In the dark
ness of the trees, was the body of the
man he had killed, covered with a
blanket. Thorpe, his master, had
dragged It there.
He lay down, with his nose to the
warm coals and his eyes leveled be
tween his forepaws, straight at the
closed tent-flap. He meant to keep
awake, to watch, to be ready to slink
off into the forest at the first move
ment there. But a warmth was rising
from out of the gray ash of the lire
bed, and his eyes closed. Twice—three
times —he fought himself back into
watchfulness; but the last time his
eyes came only half open, and closed
In his sleep he was leaping again at
the end of his chain. His Jaws snapped
like castanets of steel—and the sound
awakened him, and he sprang to his
feet, his spine as stiff as a brush, and
his snarling fangs bared like Ivory
knives. He had awakened Just In time.
There was movement In the tent His
master was awake, and If be did not
He sped swiftly into the thlok spruce,
and paused, flat and hidden, with only
his head showing from behind a tree.
He knew that his master would not
spare him. Three times Thorpe had
beaten him for snapping at MeCready.
The last time he would have shot him
if the girl had not saved him. And
now he had torn McCready's throat
He had taken the life from him, and
his master would not spare him. Even
the woman could not save him.
Kazan was sorry that his master had
returned, dazed and bleeding, after he
had torn McCready's Jugular. Then be
would have had her always. She would
have loved him. She did love him. And
he would have followed her, and fought
for her always, and died for her wires
the time came. But Thorpe bad com*
in from the forest again, and Kazan
had slunk away quickly—for Thorps
meant to him what all men meant to
him now: the club, the whip and the
strange things that spat fire and death.
Thorpe had come out from the tent
It was approaching dawn, and In his
hand he held a rifle. A moment later
the girl came out and her hand caught
the man's arm. They looked toward
the thing covered by the blanket Then
she spoke to Thorpe and he suddenly
straightened and threw back bis head.
"H-o-o-o-o Kazan Kazan Ka
zan 1" he called.
A shiver ran through Kazan. The
man was trying to Inveigle blm beck.
He had In bis band the thing that
"Kazan—Kazan —Ka-a-a-a-zan !" be
Kazan sneaked cautiously back
from the tree. He knew that distance
meant nothing to the cold thing of
death that Thorpe held In his hand. He
turned his head once, and whined soft
ly, and for an Instant a great longlog
filled his reddened eyes as he saw the
last of the girl.
He knew, now, that be was leavlag
her forever, and there was an ache In
his heart that had never been there be
fore, a pain that was not of the club or
Whip, of cold or hunger, but which was
greater than them all, and which filled
him with a desire to throw back hla
head snd cry out bis loneliness to the
FMZ enigtlnsss. of_the sjcy.
" BacS Itf TEe camp fKe girl's voice
"He Is gone."
The man's strong voice choked a lit
"Yes, he is gone. He knew—find I
didn't. I'd give—a year of iny life—lf I
hadn't whipped him yesterday and last
night. He won't come back."
Isobel Thorpe's hand tightened on
"He Willi" she cried. "He won't
leave me. He loved me. If he was sav
age and terrible. And he knows that I
love him. He'll come back —"
From deep In the forest there came
a long walling howl, filled with a plain
tive sadness. It was Kazan's farewell
to the woman.
After that cry Kazan sat for a long
time en his haunches, snlfllng the new
freedem of the air, and watching the
deep black pits In the forest about him,
as they faded away before dawn. Now
It Was Kazan's Farewell to ths
and then, since the day the traders had
first bought him and put him Into
sledge-traces away over on the Macken
zie, he had often thought of his free
dom longingly, the wolf blood In htm
urging him to take It. But he had
never quite dared. It thrilled him now.
There were no clubs here, no whips,
none of the man-beasts whom he had
first learned to distrust, and then to
hate. It was his misfortune—that
quarter-strain of wolf; and the clubs.
Instead of subduing him, had added to
the savagery that wus born in him.
Men had been his worst enemies. They
had beaten him time and again until he
was almost dead. They called blm
"bad," and stepped wide of him, and
never missed the chance to snap a
whip over Ma 1 back. His body was cov
ered with scars they bad given blm.
He had never felt kindness, or love,
until the first night the woman had put
her warm little hand on his head, and
had snuggled her face close down to
his, while Thorpe—her husband—had
cried out In horror. He had almost
burled his fangs in ber white flesh, but
In an instant ber gentle touch, and her
sweet voice, had sent through him that
wonderful thrill that was his first
knowledge of love. And now It was a
man who was driving him from her,
away from the hand that had never
held a club or s whip, and he growled
as he trotted deeper Into the forest
He came to the edge of a swamp as
day broke. For a time he hud been
filled with • strange uneasiness, and
light did not quite dispel It At last
he was free of men. He could detect
nothing that reminded him of their
hated presence In the air. But neither
could he smell the presence of other
dogs, of the sledge, the fire, of compan
ionship and food, and so far back as he
could remember they bad alwnys been
a part of bis life.
Here It was very quiet The swamp
•ay In a hollow between two idge
mountains, and the spruce and cedar
grew low and thick—so thick that
there was almost no snow oader them,
and the day wus like twilight. Two
things he began to rolss more than all
others—food arid company. Both the
wolf and the dog tluit was In him de
manded the first, and that part of him
that was dog longed for the latter. To
both desires the wolf blood that was
strong In him rose responslvely. It told
him that somewhere In this silent
world between the two ridges there
was companionship, and that all ho
had to do to find it was to sit back on
hla haunches, and cry out Ids loneli
ness. More than once souiethldg trem

throat, and ended there In a whine. It
was the wolf howl, not yet quite born.

rabbits, and killed two more. L'ntll
now, be bad never known the delight of
pursuing and killing at will, even
though he did not eat all he killed.
But there was no fight In the rab
bits. They died too easily. They were
very sweet and Under to eat, when he
was hungry, but the first thrill of kill

wanted something bigger. He no long

ered with the electric energy of life
and action. He traveled north and
west It was the call of early days—
the days away up on the Mackenzie.
The Mackenzie was a thousand miles
He came upon many trails In the
snow that day, and sniffed the scents
left by the hoofs of moose and caribou,
and the fur-padded feet of a lynx. He
followed a fox, and the trail led him to
a place shut In by tall spruce, where
the snow was beaten down and red
dened with blood. There was an owl's
head, feathers, wings snd entrails lying
here, and he knew that there were
other hunters abroad besides himself.
, Toward evening he enme upon tracks
I In the snow thnt were very much like
his own. They were quite fresh, and
there was a warm scent about them
that made him whine, and filled him
again with that desire to fall back up
on his haunches and send forth the
wolf-cry. This desire grew stronger
In him as the shadows of night deep
ened in the forest. He had traveled
all day, but he was not tired. There
was something about night, now that
there were no men near, that exhilarat
ed him strangely. The wolf blood In
i him ran swifter nnd swifter. Tonight
It was clear. The sky was filled with
stars. The moon rose. *And at Inst
he settled back in the snow nnd turned
his head straight up to the spruce tops,
and the wolf came out of him In a long
mournful cry which quivered through
| the still night for miles.
. For a long time he sat and listened
after that howl. He had found voice—
a voice with a strange now note In It
and It gave him still greater confidence.
He had expected an answer, but none
came. He had traveled In the face of
the wind, and as he howled, a bull
moose crashed through the scrub tim
ber ahead of him, his horns rattling
against the trees like the tattoo of a
clear birch club ns he put distance be
tween himself and that cry.
Twice Kazan howled before he went
on, and he found Joy In the practice of
that new note. He came then to the
foot of a rough ridge, and turned up
out of the swamp to the top of It. The
stars and the moon were nearer to hlin
there, and on the other side of the
ridge he looked down upon a great
sweeping plain, with a frozen lake glls
; tenlng In the moonlight, and a white
! liver leading from It off Into timber
; that was neither so thick nor so black
as that In the swamp.
I And then every muscle In his body
I grew tense, and his blood leaped. From
far off In the plain there came a cry.
i It was his cry—the wolf-cry. His Jaws
snapped. Ills white fangs gleamed,
and he growled deep in his thront. He
wanted to reply, but some strange In
stinct urged him not to. That Instinct
of the wild was already becoming mas
ter of him. In the air, In the whisper
ing of the spruce tops, In the moon nnd
the stars themselves, there breathed
a spirit which told hlm thnt what ho
had heard was the wolf-cry, but that It
Was not the wolf call.
The other came an hour Inter, clear
and distinct, that same walling howl at
the beginning—but ending In a staccato
of quick sharp yelps that stirred his
blood at once Into a fiery excitement
that It had never known before. The
same Instinct told him that this was
the call—the hunt-cry. It urged him to
come quickly. few moments later It
came again, and this time there was a
reply from close down along the foot
of the ridge, and another from so far
away that Kazan could scarcely hear
It The hunt-pack was gathering for
the night chase; but Kazan sat quiet
He was not afraid, but ho was not
ready to go. The ridge seemed to spilt
the world for him. Down there It was
new, and strange, nnd without men.
Prom the other side something seemed
pulling him back, and suddenly be
turned his head and gazed back
through the moonlit space behind hlm,
and whined. It was the dog-whine now.
The woman was bark there. He could
hear her voice. He could feel the
touch of her soft hand. He could sen
the laughter In her face and eyes, the
laughter that bad made him warm and
happy. She was calling to him through
the forests, and he was torn between
desire to answer thnt call, and desire
to go down Into tbe plain. For be

him with clubs, nnd he could hear the
cracking of whips, and feel the sting of

Leader of the Pack.
All that night Kazan kept close to
tbe hunt-pack, but never quite ap
proached It This was fortunate for
blm. He still bore the scent of traces,
and of man. Tbe pack would have torn
blm to pieces. Tbe first Instinct of the
wild Is that of self-preservutlon. It

That night tbe pack killed a cariboo
on the edge of the lake, and feasted
nntli nearly dawn. Kazan hung In the
face of the wind. Tbe smell of blood
and of warm flesh tickled his nostrils,
and his sharp ears could catch the
cracking of bones. But the Instinct
was stronger than the temptation.
Not antll broad day, when the pork
had scattered far and wide over the
plain, did he go boldly to tbe scene of
tbe kill. He found nothing but an area
of blood-reddened snow, covered with
bones, entrslls and torn bits of tough
bide. But it was enough, and be rolled

and announced himself to his new com
rades of the great plain.
The pack hunted again that night, or
else It was a new pack that started
miles to the south, and came up with a
doe caribou to the big frozen lake. The
night was almost as clear as day, nnd
from the edge of tha forest Kazan dm
•aw the caribou ran oat on Hie take a
third of a mile away. The pack was
about a dozen strong, and had already
split Into the fatal boraeahoe forma
tion, the two leaders running almost
abreast of the kill, and slowly closing
With a sharp yelp Kazan darted oat
Into the moonlight. He was directly In
the path of the fleeing doe, and bore
down upon her with lightning speed.
Two hundred yards away the doe saw
him, and swerved to the right and the
leader on that aide met her with open
Jaws. Kasan was In with the second
leader, and leaped at the doe's soft
throat In ji snarling mass the giack
closed In from behind, and the doe
went down, with Kazan half under ber
body, his fangs sunk deep In her Jugu
lar. She lay heavily on him, but he did
not lose his hold. It was bis first big
kill. His blood ran like fire. He
snarled between bis clamped teeth.
Not until the last quiver had left
the body over him did he pull himself
out from under her chest and forelegs.
He had killed a rabbit that day and
was not hungry. So he sat back In the
anew and waited, while the ravenoai
pack tore at the dead doe. After a lit
tle he came nearer, nosed In between
two of them, and was nipped for his In
As Kazan drew back, still hssltatlng
to mix with his wild brothers, a big
gray form leaped out of the pack and
drove straight for his throat. Ho had
Just time to throw his shoulder to the
attack, and for a moment the two
rolled over and over In the snow. They
were np before the excitement of sud
den battle had drawn the pack frem
the feast. Slowly they circled about
each other, their white fangs bare,
their yellowish backs bristling like
brushes. The fatul ring of wolves
drew about the fighters.
It was not new to Kazan. A dozen
times he had sat In rings like this,
waiting for the final moment. More
than once he had fought for his life
within the circle. It was the sledge
dog way of fighting. Unless man Inter
rupted with a club or a whip It always
ended In death. Only one fighter could
come out alive. Sometimes both died.
And there was no man here—only that
fatal cordon of waiting whlte-fanged
demons, ready to leap upon and tear
to pieces the first of the fighters who
was thrown upon his side or Ka
zan was a stranger, but he did not fear
those that hemmed him In. The One
great law of the pack would compel
them to be fulr.
He kept his eyes only on the big gray
leader who had challenged him. Shoul
der to shoulder they continued to
circle. Where a few moments before
there had been the snapping of Jaws
opd the rending of flesh there was now
silence. Soft-footod and soft-throated
mongrel dogs from the south would
have snarled and growled, but Kazpji
and the wolf were still, their ears laid
forward Instead of back, their tails
free and bushy.
Suddenly the wolf struck In with the
swiftness of lightning, and his Jaws
came together with the sharpness of
steel striking steel. They missed by
an Inch. In that same Instant Kazan
darted In to the side, and like knives
his teeth gashed the wolf's flank.
They circled again, their eyes grow
ing redder, their Hps drawn back until
they seemed to hove disappeared. And
then Kazan leaped for that death-grip
at the throat —and missed. It was
only by an Inch again, and the wolf
come back, as he had done, and laid
open Kazan's flank so that the blood
ran down his leg and reddened the
snow. The burn of that flank-wound
told Kazan that his enemy was old In
the game of fighting. He crouched
low, his head straight out and his
throat close to the snow. It was a
trick Kazan had learned In puppyhood
—to shield his thront, and wait.
Twice the wolf circled about him,
and Kazan pivoted slowly, his eyes half
closed. A second time the wolf leaped
and Kazan threw up his terrible Jaws,
sure of that fatal grip Just In front of
the foreleg*. His teeth snapped on
empty air. With the nlmbleness of ■
cat the wolf had (one completely over
The trick had felled, and with •
rumble of the dog-snarl In his throat
Kazan reached the wolf In a single
bound. They met breast to breast
Their fangs clashed and with the whole
weight of his body, Kazan flung him
self against the wolfs shoulders,
clesred his Jaws, and struck again for
the throat hold. It was another miss—
by a hair's breadth—and before he
could recover, the wolfs teeth were
burled In the back of bis neck.
For the first time In his life Kazsn
felt the terror and the pain of the
death-grip, and with a mighty effort be
flung his head • little forward snd
snapped blindly. His powerful Jaws
closed on the wolfs foreleg, close to
the body. There wss a cracking of
bone and a crunching of flesh, and the
circle of waiting wolves grew tense and
alert One or the other of tbe fighters
was sure to go down before the holds
were broken, sod tbey but awaited
that fatal fall as a signal to leap In
to the death.
Only the thlckneaa of hair and hide
on the back of Kazan's neck, and the
toughness of his muscles, saved him
from that terrible fate of the van
quished. The wolfs teeth sank deep,
but not deep enough to reach the vital
spot, and suddenly Kazan put every
ounce of strength In bis limbs to the
effort and flung himself up bodily from
under his sntagonlst. The grip on his
neck relaxed, and with soother rearing
leap be tore blmself free.
As swift as a whlp-lash he whirled
on tbe broken-legged leader of the pack
and wltb the full rnsb and weight of
his shoulders struck blm fslrly In the
side. More deadly than the throat-grip
had Kazan sometimes found the lunge

was deadly now. Tbe big gray wolf

an Instant and tbe pack rushed In,
eager to rend tbe last of life from tbe

She was ynung and strong snd beau

Where the fight had been he was look
ing, at what little remained of the old
lender. The pack had returned to the
feast. He heard again the cracking of
bones and the rending of flesh, and
something told him that thereafter all
the wilderness would hear and recog
nize his voice, and that when he sat
buck on hts haunches and cnlled to the
moon snd the stars, those swift-footed
hunters of the big plain would respond
to It. He circled twice about the cari
bou and the pack, and then trotted off
to the edge of the black spruce forest.
When he reached the shadows he
looked hack. Oray Wolf was following
him. She was only a few yards be
hind. And now she came up to him, a
little timidly, and she, too, looked back
to the dark blotch of life out on the
lake. And as she stood there close be
side him, Kazan sniffed at something
In the air that was not the scent of
blood, nor the perfume of the balsam
and spruce. It was a thing thnt seemed
to come to him from the clear stars,
the cloudless moon, the strange nnd
beautiful quiet of the night Itself. And

was young—so young that she seemed
scarcely to have passed out of puppy
hood. Iler body was strong and slim
and beautifully shaped. In the moon
light the hair under her throat and
nlong her buck shone sleek and soft.
She whined at the red staring light in
Kazan's eyes, and it was not a puppy's
whimper. Kazan moved toward her,
and stood with his head over ber back,
facing the pack. He felt her trembling
against his chest. He looked at the
moon and the stars again, the mystery
of Oray Wolf and of the night throb-
Mag In his blood.
Not much of Ids life had been spent

Kazan felt and heard again that won

the sound of her voice.
He turned, whining, his back bris
