A Quarter of a mile away Gray Wolf
had caught the dreaded scent of man
In the wind, and was giving voice to
her warning. It was a long walling
howl, and not until its last echoes had
died away did Sandy McTrlgger move.
Then he returned to the canoe, tools
out his old gun, put a fresh cap on the
nipple and disappeared quickly over;
the edge of the bank.
For a week Kazan and Gray Wolf
had been wandering about the headwa
ters of the McFarlane and this was the
first time since the preceding wlnter|
that Gray Wolf had caught the scent of
man In the air. When the wind brought
the danger-signal to her she was alone.
Two or hree minutes before the scent
came to her Kazan bad left her side in
swift pursuit of a snow-shoe rabbit,
and she lay flat on her belly under a
bush, waiting for him. In these mo
tnents when she wag alone Gray Wolf
was constantly sniffing the air. Blind
ness bad developed her scent and
hearing until they were next to In
fallible. First she had heard the rattle
of Sandy McTrigger's paddle against
the side of his canoe a quarter of a
mile away. Scent had followed swift
ly. Five minutes after her warning
howl Kazan stood at her side, his head
flung up, his Jaws open and panting.
Sandy had hunted Arctic foxes, and he
was using the Eskimo tactics now,
swinging in a half-circle until he should
come up In the face of the wind. Ka
zan caoght a single whiff of the man
tainted air and his spine grew stiff.
But blind Gray Wolf was keener than
the little red-eyed fox of the north. Her
pointed nose slowly followed Sandy's
progress. She heard a dry stick crack
under his feet three hundred yards
away. £-tie caught the metallic click of
his gun-barrel as It struck a birch sap
ling. The moment she lost Sandy In
the wind she whined and rubbed her
self against Kazan and trotted a few
steps to the southwest.
At times such as this Kazan seldom
refused to take guidance from her.
They trotted away side by side and by
the time Sundy was creeping up snake
like with the wind In his face, Kazan
was peering from the fringe of river
brush down upon the canoe on the
white strip of Band. When Sandy re
turned, after an hour of futile stalking,
two fresh tracks led straight down to
the canoe. He looked at them In amaze
ment and then a sinister grin wrinkled
his ugly face. He chuckled as he went
to his kit and dug out a small rubber
bag. From this he drew a tightly
corked bottle, filled with gelatin cap
sules. In each little capsule were Ave
grains of strychnine. There were dark
hints that once upon a time Sandy Mc-
Trlgger had tried one of these capsules
by dropping it in a cup of coffee and
giving it to a man, but the police bad
never proved It. He was expert In the
use of poison. Probably he had killed
a thousand foxes In his time, and he
chuckled again as he counted out a
dozen of the capsules and thought how
easy It would be to get this Inquisitive
pair of wolves. Two or three days be
fore he had killed a caribou, and each
of the capsules be now rolled up In a
little ball of deer fat, doing the work
with short sticks In place of his An
gers, so that there would be no man
smell clinging to the death-baits. Be
fore sundown Sandy set out at right
angles over the plain, planting the
baits. Most of them he hung to low
bushes. Others he dropped In worn
rabbit and caribou trails. Then be re
turned to the creek and cooked his sup
The next morning be was op early,
and off to the poison baits. The first
bolt was nntouched. Tbe second was
as be had planted It Tbe third waa
gone. A thrill shot through Sandy as
be looked about him. Somewhere with
in a radios of two or three hundred
I yards he would find his game. Then
i his glance fell to the ground under
I the bush where he bad hung the poison
capsule and an oath broke from bla

11 portion of It was the little white cnp
sule —unbroken. It was Sandy's Unit
experience with a wild creature whose
Instincts were sharpened by blindness,
and he was puzsled. He had never
' known this to happen before. If a fox
or a wolf could be lured to the point of
touching a bait. It followed that the
| bait was eaten. Sandy went on to the
fourth and the fifth baits. They were
untouched. The sixth wns torn to
pieces, like the third. In this Instance
the capsule was broken and the white
powder scattered. Two more poison
baits Sandy found polled down In this
manner. He knew that Kazun and Gray
Wolf had done the work, for he found
the marks of their feet in a dozen dif
ferent places. Tli* accumulated bad
humor of weeks of futile labor found
vent In his disappointment and anger.
At last he had found something tangible
to curse. The failure of hla poison
baits he accepted as a sort of cHmax
to his general bad luck. Everything
was against him, be believed, and he
made up his mind to return to Red
Gold City. Early In the afternoon he
launched his canoe and drifted down
stream with the current. He was Von
tent to let the current do all of tha
work today, and he used Ills paddle
just enough to keep his slender craft
head on. He leaned back comfortably
and smoked his pipe, with the old rifle
between his knees. The wind was In
his face and he kept a sharp watch for
It was late In the afternoon when
Kazan and Gray Wolf came out on a
sand bar live or six miles down-stream.
Kazan was lapping up the cool water
when Sandy drifted quietly around a
bend a hundred yards above them. If
the wind had been right, or If Hand;
had been using his paddle, Oray Wolf
would have detected danger. It wan
the metallic click-click of the old-fash
ioned lock of Sandy's rifle that awak
ened her to a sense of peril. Instantly
she was thrilled by the nearness of It.
Kazan heard the sound and stopped
drinking to face it In that moment
Sandy pressed the trigger. A belch of
smoke, a roar of gunpowder, and Ka
zan felt a red-hot stream of fire pass
with the swiftness of a lightning-flush
through his brain. He stumbled back,
his legs gave way under him, and he
crumpled down in a limp heup. Gray
Wolf darted like a streak off into the
bush. Blind, she had not seen Kazan
wilt down upon the white sand. Not
until she was a quarter of a mile away
from the terrifying thunder of the
white man's rifle did she stop and wait
Sandy McTrigger grounded his cnnoe
on the sand bar with an exultant yell.

He turned Kazan's head over with
the butt of his gun, and the leer of sat
isfaction in his face gave place to a
sudden look of amazement. For the
first time he saw the collur about Ka

gasped.. "It's a dog. Sandy McTrigger

. Sandy's Method.
McTrigger dropped on his knees In
the sand. The look of exultation WHS
gone from bis face. He twisted the
collar about the dog's limp neck until
he came to the worn plate, on which he
could make out the faintly engraved
letters K-a-z-a-n. He spelled the let
ters out one by one, and the look In his
face was of one who still disbelieved
what he had seen and heard.
"A dog I" he exclaimed again. "A

He rose to his feet and looked down
on his victim. A pool of blood lay In
the white ssnd at the end of Kazan's
nose. After a moment Sandy bent over
to see where bis bullet had struck. His
Inspection filled blm with a new and
greater interest. The heavy ball from
the muzzle-loader had struck Kazan
fairly on top of the head. It was a
glancing blow that bad not even broken
the skull, and like a flush Sandy un
derstood the quivering and twitching
of Kazan's shoulders and legs. He
had thought that they were the last
muscular throes of death. But Kazan
was not dying. He was only stunned,

InsQnct was"to rise fo' his "feet. Three
times he felt back before be could
stand up. Sandy was squatted six feet
from blm, holding the end of the ba
blche, and grinning, Kazan's fangs I
gleamed back. He growled, and the , I
crest along his spine rose menacingly. | -
Sandy jumped to his feet. .1
"Guess I know what you're flggerlng [
on," he said. "I've had your kind be
fore. The d— wolves have turned j 1
you bad, an' youll need a whole lot ol , 1
club before you're right again. Now, 1
Sandy had taken the precaution of
bringing a thick club along with the
bablche. He picked It up from where
he had dropped It In the sand. Kazan's
strength had fairly returned to him
now. He was no longer dizzy. The
mist had cleared away from his eyes.
Before him he saw once more his old
enemy, man—man and the club. All of
the wild ferocity of his nature wns
roused In an Instant. Without reason
ing he knew that Gray Wolf was gone,
and that this man was accountable for
her going. He knew that this man
had also brought him his own hurt, and
what he ascribed to the man he also
attributed to the club. In his newer
undertaking of things, born of freedom
and Gray Wolf, man and club were one
and Inseparable. With a snarl he
leaped at Sundy. The man was not ex
pecting a direct assault, and before he
could raise his club or spring aside
Kazan had landed full on his chest.
The muzzle about Kazan's Jaws saved
him. Fangs that would huve torn his
throat open snapped harmlessly. Un
der the weight of the dog's body ho
fell back, us If struck down by a
As quick as a cat he was on his feet
again, with the end of the bablche
twisted several times about his hand.
Kazan leaped again, and tkls time he
was met by a furious swing of the club.
It smashed against his shoulder, and
sent him down In the sand. Before he
could recover Sandy was upon him,
with all the fury of a man gone mad.
He shortened the bablche by twisting It
again and again about his hand, and
the club rose and fell with the skill and
strength of one long accustomed to Its
use. Tfie first blows served only to
add to Kazan's hutred of man, and the
ferocity and fearlessness of his attacks.
Again and again he leaped In, and each
time the club fell upon him with a
force that threatened to break his
bones. There was a tense hard look
about Sandy's cruel mouth. He had
never known a dog like this before, and
he wns a bit nervous, even with Kazan
muzzled. Three times Kazan's fangs
would have sunk deep In his flesh had
it not been for the bablche. And If the
thongs about his jaws should slip, or
Sandy followed up the thought with
a .smashing blow that landed on Ka
xau's head, and once more the old bat
tler fell limp upon the sand. McTrtt
ger's breath was coming In quick gnsps.
He was almost winded. Not until the
club slipped from his hand did he
realize how desperate the fight had
been. Before Kazan recovered from
the blow that had stunned him'Sundy
examined the muzzle and strengthened
It by adding another bablche thong.
Then he dragged Kazan to a log that
high water had thrown up on the
shore a few yards away and made the
end of the bnblche rope fast to a dead
snag. After that he pulled his canoe
higher up on the sand, and began to
prepare camp for the night.
For Some minutes after Kazan's
stanned senses liad become normal he
lay motionless, watching h'undy Me-
Strengthened It by Adding Another
Trigger. Every bone In hi* body gave
him pain. Ilia Jawa were *ore and
bleeding. Hla upper Up wa* *ma*hed
where the club had fallen. One eye
wa* almost clo*ed. Several tlmee
Sandy came near, much plea*ed at
what he regarded a* the gin id result*
of tbe beating. Each time he brought
the club. The third time he prodded
Kazan with It, and the dog anarled and
annpped aavagely at the end of It.
That waa what Sandy wanted—lt wa*
an old trick of tlie dog-*laver. Instant
ly he wa* u*lng the club again, until
with a whining cry Kazan *lunk under
the protection of the *nag to which ho
wa* fastened. He could scarcely drag
himself. Hl* right forepnw wa*
smashed, lil* hind-quarter* sank un
der blm. For a time after thla second
beating be could not have escaped had
he been free.
Sandy waa In unusually good humor.
"I'll take the devil out of you all
right," be told Kazan for the twentieth
time. "There'* nothln' like beatln'a to
make dogs an' wlmmln live up to the
mark. A month from now you'll be
worth two hundred dollar* or I'll *kln
you alive I"
Three or four time* before dusk
Sandy worked to rouse Kazan's ani
mosity. Hut there was no longer any
de*!re left In Kazan to light. Hl* two
terrific beating*, and the crushing blow
of tbe ballet against his skull, had
made him alck. He lay with hi* head
between hi* forepaw*, hi* eye* cloned,
and did not aee McTrlgger. He paid
no attention to tbe meat that wa*
thrown under hia nose. He did not
know when tbe last of the *uu sank
behind the western" forests, or when
the darkness came. But at last some
thing roused him from his stupor. To
his dazed and sickened brain it came
like a call from out of the far past, and
he raised his bend and listened. Out
on the sand McTrlgger had built a Orel
.and the man stood in the red glow of
It now, facing the dark shadows be
yond the shoreline. He, too, was lis
tening. What had roused Kazan came
again now—the lost mourning cry of
Gray Wolf far out on the plain.
With a whine Kazan was on his feet,
tugging at the bablche. Sandy snatched
up hla club, and leaped toward him.
"Down, you brute!" he commanded.
In the firelight the club rose and fell
with ferocious quickness. When Mc-
Trlgger returned to the flro he was
breathing hard again. He tossed his
club beside the blankets he had spread
out for a bed. It waa a dtfferent look
ing club now. It was covered with
blood and hair.
"Guess that'll take the spirit out of
him," he chuckled. "It'll do that—or
kill 'lm 1"
Several times that night Kazan heard
Gray Wolfs call. He whined aoftly in
response, fearing the club. He watched
the fire until the last embers of it died
out, and then cautiously dragged'him
self from under the snag. Two or
three times he tried to stand on his
feet, but fell back each time. His legs
were not broken, but the pain of stand
ing on them wns excruciating. He was
hot and feverish. All that night he had
craved a drink of water. When Snndy
crawled out from between his blankets
In the enrly down he gave htm both
meat itnd water. Kazan drank the wa
ter, but would not touch the meat.
Sundy regarded the change In him with
satisfaction. By the time the sun was
up he had finished his breakfast and
was ready to leave. lie approached
"Kazan fearlessly!now, without the club.
Untying the bablche he dragged the
dog to the canoe. Kazun slunk In the
sand while Ills enptor fastened the end
of the hide rope to the stern of the
canoe. Sandy grinned. What wns
about to haiipen would be fun for him.
In the Yukon he had lenrned how to
take the spirit out of dogs.
He pushed oft, bow foremost. Brac
ing himself with his paddle he then be
gan to pull Kazan toward the water. In
• few momenta Kazan stood with hi*
forefeet planted In the damp sand at
the edge of the stream. For a brief In
terval Sandy allowed the bablche *o
fall slack. Then with a sudden power
ful pull he Jerked Kazan out Into the
water. Instantly ho sent the canoe Into
midstream, swung tt quickly down with
the current, and began to paddle
enough to keep the bablche taut about
his victim's neck. In spite of his sick
ness and Injuries Kazan was now com
pelled to swlfoiyto keep his hood above
water. In the wash of the cunoe, and
with Sandy's strokes growing steadily
stronger, his position became each mo
ment one of Increasing torture. At
times bis shaggy head was pulled com
pletely iftider wuter. At others Hundy
would wait until ho had drifted along
side, and then thrust him under with
the end of his paddle. He grew weaker.
At the end of a half mile he was
drowning. Not until then did Sandy
pull him alongside and drug hlm into
the canoe. The dog fell limp and gasp
ing In the bottom. Itrutal though
Sandy's methods had been, they had
worked his purpose. In Kazan there
was no longer a desire to light. He no
longer struggled for freedom. He knew
that this man was his master, and for
the time his spirit was gone. All he
desired now was to be allowed to lie In
the bottom of the canoe, out of reach
of the club, and safe from tho water.
Tho club lay between him and the
man. Tho end of It wus within a foot
or two of hts nose, and what he
smelled wus his own blood.
For Ave days and Ave nights the
Journey down-stream continued, and
McTrlgger's process of civilizing Kazan
was continued In three moro boatings
with tho club, and another resort to the
water torture. On the morning of the
sixth day they reached Red Gold City,
and McTrlgger put up his tent close to
tho river. Botnewhere he obtained a
chain for Kazan, and after fastening
tho dog securely back of the tent he
cut off the blbache muzzle.
"Yon can't put no meat In a muzzle,"
he told his prisoner. "An' I want you
to git strong—an' fierce as hell. I've
got un Idee. It's an Idee you can lick
your weight In wildcats. We'll pull off
a stunt pretty soon that'll fill our
pockets with dust. I've done It afore,

"11l make you a bet of twenty-flve

"Another week," he aald. "He won't

"Next Tuesday night," he agreed.
Theft he added, "IH make It a half of

Sandy took a long look at Kazan.
"I'll Just take you on that," he said.
Then, as he shook Harker's hand, "I
don't believe there'a a dog between
here and the Yukon that can kill the

Red Gold City waa ripe for a night
of relaxation. There had been some
gambling, a few tights and enough
liquor to create excitement now and
then, hut the presence of the mounted
police had served to keep things un
usuully-.tume compared with events a
few hundred miles fnrther north, In the
Dawson country. The entertulnment
proposed by Handy McTrlgger and Jun
Murker met with excited favor. The
news spread for twenty miles about
Ited Gold City and there bud never
been greater excitement in the town
than on the afternoon and night of the
big fight. This was largely because
Kazun and the huge Dano had been
placed on exhibition, each dog In a
specially made cage of his own, and a
fever of hettlug began. Three hundred
men, each of whom wus paying five
dollars to see the battle, viewed the
gladiators through the bars of their
cages. Hnrker's dog wus a combina
tion of Great Dane and mastiff, born In
the north, and bred to the traces, net
ting favored him by the odds of two to
one. Occuslonully It ran three to one.
At. these odds there wns plenty of Ka
zan money. Those who were risking
their money on him were the older
wilderness men—men who had spent
their lives among dogs, und who knew
what the red light In Kazan's eyes
meant. An old Kootenuy miner s|>oke
low In another's ear:
"I'd bet on 'ltn even. I'd give odds
if I hud to. He'll fight all around the

Others thrust themselves between
them. At flrst Kazan hud snarled at
•11 these faces nhout hliii. liut now
he lny buck against tho boarded side
of the cngo and eyed them sullenly
from between his forepaws.
The fight was to be pulled off In ITar
ker'n place, a combination of saloon
and cafe. The benches and tables had
been cleared out and In the center of
the one big room a cage ten feet square
rested on o platform three and a half
feet from the floor. Seats for the three
hundred spectators were drawn closely
around this. Suspended Just above the
open top of the cage were two big oil
lariiHH with glass reflectors.
It was eight o'clock when Harker,
McTrlgger and two other men bore Ka
zan to the arena by moans of the wood
en bars that projected from the bottom
of his cage. The big Dane was already
In the lighting cage. He stood blinking
hla eyes In the brilliant light of the
reflecting lumps. Me pricked up his
ears when he saw Kazan. Kazan did
not show his fangs. Neither revealed
the expected animosity. It wus the first

Then his shoulders dropped, and he,
too, coolly fuesd the crowd that had ex
pected a light to the death, A laugh of
derision swept through tho closely seat
ed rows. Catcalls, Jeering, taunts flung
ut McTrlgger and Darker, and angry
voices demanding their money back
mingled with a tumult of growing dis
content. Kandy's fuce wus red with
mortification mid rage. The lilue veins
In Marker's forehead had swollen twice
their norfiinl size. He shook his fist In
the face of the crowd, and shouted:

Kazan had turned. lie was facing tho
Dane. The Dane had turned his eye*
to Kazan. Cautiously, prepare*) for a
Inline or a sidestep, Kazan advanced
a little. Tho I>aiio's shoulders bristled.
He, too, advanced upon Kazan. Four
feet apart they stood rigid. One could
have heard a whisper In the room now.

the cage, scarcely breathed. Splendid
In every limit and muscle, warriors of
u hundred fights, and fearless to tho
polut of death, the two half-wolf vic
tims of man stood facing each other.
None could see the questioning look In
their brute eyes. None knew that In
this thrilling moment the uuseen hand
of the wonderful Spirit Ood of the wil
derness hovered between them, and
that one of Its miracles was descending
upon them. It was understanding.
Meeting In the open—rivals In the
trace*—they would have been rolling
In the throes of terrific battle. Hut here
came that mute appeal of brotherhood.
In the final moment, when only a step
separated them, and when men ex
pected to s«-e tho first mad lunge, the
splendid lame slowly raised Iris head
and looked over Kazan's hack through
tho glare of tlio lights. Harker trem
bled, and under his hreath he cursed.
Tho Dane's throat was open to Kazan.
Itut between the beiiMs had passed the
voiceless pledge of peace. Kazan did
not leap, lie turned. And shoulder to

man—they atood and looked through
the bars of their prison Into the one of

of anger, of demand, of threat. In hlx
