An Empty World.
Mile after mile Kazan went on. For
a time he was oppressed by the shiv
ering note of death that had come to
him In Sandy McTrigger's cry, and
he slipped through the bansklans like
a shadow, his ears flattened, his tall
trailing, his hindquarters betraying
that curious slinking quality of the
wolf and dog stealing away from dan
ger. Then he came out upon a plain,
and the stillness, the billion stars In
the clear vault of the sky, and the
keen air that carried with it a breath
of the Arctic barrens made him alert
and questioning. He faced the direc
tion of the wind. Somewhere off there,
far to the south and west, was Gray
For the first time In many weeks
be 6£t back on his haunches and gave
the deep and vibrant call that echoed
weirdly for miles about him. Back In
the bansklans the big Dane heard it,
and whined. From over the still body
of Sandy McTrlgger the little profes
sor looked up with' a white tense face,
and listened for a second cry. But
Instinct told Kazan that to that first
call there would be no answer, and
now he struck out swiftly, galloping
mile after mile, as a dog follows the
trail of Its master home. He did
not turn back to the lake, nor was bis
direction toward Bed Gold City. As
straight as he might have followed a
road blazed by the hand of man he
cut across the forty miles of plain and
swamp and forest and rocky ridge
that lay between him and the McFar
lane. All that night he did- not call
again for Gray Wolf. With him rea
soning was a process brought about
by habit—by precedent—and as Gray
Wolf had waited for hi in many times
before he knew that she would be
waiting for him now near the sand
By dawn he had reached the river,
within three miles of the sand-bar.
Scarcely was the sun up when be stood
on the white strip of sand where he
and Gray Wolf, bad come down to
drink. Expectantly and confidently he
looked about him for Gray Wolf, whin
ing softly, and wagging his tall. Ha
began to search for her scent, but
rains had washed even her footprints
from the clean sand. All that day he
searched for her along the river and
out on the plain. He went to where
they had killed their last rabbit. He
sniffed at the bushes where the poison
baits had hung. Again and again he
sat back on' his haunches and sent
out his mating cry to her. And slow
ly, as he did these things, nature was
working In him that miracle of the
wild which the Creed have named the
"spirit call." As it had worked in
Gray Wolf, so now It stirred the blood
With the going of the sun, and the
sweeping about him of shadowy night,
he turned more and more to the south
and east. His whole world was made

That world, In his comprehension of
it, ran from the McParlnne In a nar

the plains to the little valley. If Gray

and tirelessly he resumed his quest of

tt the sky again, and gray day was
giving place to night, did exhaustion
and hunger stop him. He killed a rab
bit, and for hours after he had feasted
tie lay close to his kill, and slept,
rhen he went on.
The fourth night he came to the
little valley between the two ridges,
and under the stars, more brilliant
aow In the chill clearness of the early
autumn nights, he followed the creek
down Into their old swamp home. It
was broad day when he reached what
had once been his home and Gray
Wolfs, and for many minutes Kazan

air. Until now his spirit bad remained
unbroken. Footsore, with thinned sides
and gaunt head,' he circled slowly
through the swamp. All that day he
searched. And his crest flat now,
and there was a hunted look In the
droop of his shoulders and In the shift
ing look of his eyes. Gray Wolf was
Slowly nature was Impinging that
fact upon him. She had passed out
of his world and out of his Ufa, and
he was filled with a loneliness and a
grief so great that the forest seemed
strange, and the stillness of the wild
a thing that now oppressed and fright
ened him. Once more the dog In him
was mastering the wolf. With Gray
Wolf he had possessed the world of
freedom. Without:her. that world was
so big and strange and empty that It
appalled him. . J
Late In the afternoon he came upon
a little pile of crushed clam shells on
the shore of the stream. He sniffed
at then*—turned away—went back,
and sniffed again. Rut the scent she
had left behind was not- strong enough
to tell Kazan, and for a second time
he turned away. That night he slunk
under. a log, and cried himself to
sleep. Deep In the night he grieved In
his uneasy slumber, like a child. And
day after day, and night after night,
Kazan remained a stinking creature of
the big swamp, mourning for the one
creature that had brought him out of
ch%os Into light, who had filled his
world for him, and who. In going from
him, had taken from this world even
the things that Gray Wolf had lost In
The Call of Bun Rock.
In the golden glow of the autumn
sun there came up the stream over
looked by the Sun Rock one day a
man, a woman and a child in a canoe.
Civilization had done for lovely Joan
what It had done for many another
wild flower transplanted from the
depths of the wilderness. Her cheeks
were thin. Her blue eyes had lost
their luster. She coughed, and when
she coughed the man looked at her
with love and fear In his eyes. Hut
now, slowly, the man had begun to
see the transformation, and on the day
their canoe pointed up the stream and
Into the wonderful valley that had
been their home before the call of the
distant city came to them, he noted
the flush gathering once more In her
cheeks, the fuller redness of her Hps,
and the gathering glow of happiness
and content In her eyes. He laughed
softly as he saw these things, and he
blessed the forests. In the canoe she
had leaned back, with her head al
most against his shoulder, and he
stopped paddling to draw her to him,
and run his fingers through the soft
golden masses of her hair.
"Yon are happy again, Joan," he
laughed joyously. "The doctors were
right Tou are a part of the forests."
"Yes, I am happy," she whispered,
and suddenly there came a little thrill
Into her voice, and she pointed to •
white finger of sand running out Into
the stream. "Do you remember—years
and years ago, It seem»—that Kazan
left as here? She was on the sand
over there, calling to him. Do yon
remember?" u l>ere waft a. I1U|« trem
ble about her niouth. and she added, "I
wonder —where they—have gone."
The cabin was as they had left It
Only the crimson bakneeah had grown
up about It, and shrubs and tall grass
had sprung up near Its walls. Once
more It took on life, and dny by day
the color came deeper Into Joan's
cheeks, and her voice was filled with
Its old wild sweetness of song. Joan's
husband cleared the trails over his old
trap-lines, and Joan and the little Joan
transformed the cabin Into home. One
night the man returned to the cabin
late, and when he came In there was a
glow of excitement In Joan's blue eyes,
and a tremble In her voice when she
"Did you hear It?" she asked. "Did
you hear—the call?"
lie nodded, stroking her soft hair.
"I was a mile back In the creek
awamp," he said. "I heard It!"
Joan'* hands clutched his arms.
"It wasn't Kazan." sfie said. "I
would recognize his voice. But It
seemed to me It was like the other—
the call that .came that morning from
the sand-bar, bis mate?"
The roan was thinking. Joan's fin
gers tightened. She was breathing a

asked, "Will yon promise me that yon

Tea, I will promise." •
Joan's arms stole up about his neck.
"We loved Kazan," she whispered.
"And yon might'Vtll him—or her."
Suddenly she stopped. Both listened.
The door was a little ajar, and to
them there came again the walling
mate-call of the wolf. Joan ran to the
door. Her husband followed. Togeth
er they stood silent, and with tense
breath Joan pointed over the starlit
"Listen 1 Listen I" she coramsnded.
"Ifa her cry, and It came from th«
Sun Rock 1"
She ran out Into the night, forget
ting that the man was closo behind her
now, forgetting that little Joun was
alone In her bed. And to them, from
miles and miles across the plain, there
came a walling cry In answer—a cry
that seemed a part of the wind, and
that thrilled Joan until her breath
broke In a strange sob.
Farther out on the plain she went
and then stopped, with the golden
glow of the autumn moon and the stars
shimmering In her bolr and eyes. It
was many minutes before the cry came
again, and then It was so near that
Joan put her hands to her modth, and
her cry rang out over the plain as in
the days of old.
"Kazan I Kazan I Kazan I".
At the top of the Sun Rock, Gray
Wolf —gaunt and thinned by starva
tion—heard the woman's cry, and the
call that was In her throat died away
A Strange Fire Ldaped Through Hla
I In a whine. And to the north a swiftly
moving shadow stopped for a moment,
and stood like a thing of rock under
the starlight. It was Kazan. A strange
fire leaped through his bojly. Every
fiber of his brute understanding was
afire with the knowledge that here was
, home. It was here, long ago, that he
I had lived, and loved, (iind fought—and
all at once the dreams that had grown
'faded and Indistinct in his memory
•came back to him as real living things.
For, coming to him faintly over the
1 plain, he heard Joan's voice 1
In the starlight Joan stood, tense
I and white, when from out of the pale
mists of the moon-glow he came to
her, cringing on Ills belly, panting and
wind-run, and with a strange whining
note in his throat. And as Joan went
to him, her arms reaching out, her lips
sobbing his name over and over again,
the man stood and looked down upon
them with the wonder of a new and
I greater understanding in his face. He
I had no fear of the wolf-dog now. And
as Joan's arms hugged Kazan's great
shaggy head up to her he heard the
whining gasping Joy of the beast and
the sobbing whispering ' voice of the
girl, and with tensely gripped hands
he faced the Sun Rock.
! "Good heavensP he breathed "I be
As If in response to the thought in
his mind, there came once more across
the plain Oray Wolfs Mate-seeking
cry of grief and of loneliness. Swiftly
as though struck by a lash Kazun was
on his feet—oblivions of Joan's touch,
of her voice, of the presence of the
man. In another Instant he was gone,
and Joan flung herself against her
J husband's breast, and almost fiercely
took bis face between her two hands,
j "Now do yon bellete?" she cried
pantlngly. "Now do you believe In the
• Ood of my world —the Ood I have lived
with, the Rod that gives souls to the
j wild things, the Ood that—that has

"I believe, my Joan," he wblxpered.
"And you understand —now —what
, It means. Thou shalt not kill 7"
: ' "Except that It brings us life —yes,
I understand." he replied.
Her warm, soft hands stroked his
face. Her blue eyes, filled with the
glory of the stars, looked up Into bis.
"Kazan- and she —yotj and I—and
. the baby I Are you sorry—that we
came back?" she asked.
So close he drew her agninst- his
breast that she did not hear the words
he whispered In the soft warmth of
her hair. " And after that, for many
hours, they sat In the starlight In
front of the cabin door. But they did
not hear again that lonely cry from
the Sun Rock. Joan and her husband
j "Hell visit u* agnln tomorrow," the
map said at last. "Come, Joan, let us
go to bed."
I Together they catered the cabin.

Washington.—Prospect for passage

after the House had rejected lmport
antamendments which promised to da

had tentatively agreed to compromises
designed to greatly expedite consider
Rejection In the House on a point
of order of proposals to Include shoes,
clothing, farm mschlnery and cotton
seed under the regulation food provis
ions cleared the way to passage to such
an extent that a final vote is expecttod
soon. Prohibition proposals and Rep
resentative Lenroot's amendment to
strike out the licensing feature of the
bill constitute the only apparent ob
stacles to a final vote at that time.
To pass the measure with as few addi
tions to the original draft as possible
In order to expedite conference con
sideration Is tbe plan of Representa
tive Lever, in charge of the measure.
He told the House that minor changea
could be made at leisure while It now
Is ot the utmost Importance that the
big control machinery be started.
House republicans are rallying gener
ally to support the bill. One of the
speeches In Its behalf was delivered
by Representative Gillette, ot Massa
chusetts, acting republican leader.
While perfunctory debate was pro
ceeding In the Senate, substantial
progress towards composing differen
ces was made by the leaders at Infor
mal conferences. The changos tenta
