A i might have saved him a he murmured Brokenly a if i had not Hung aloft there too Long just out of curiosity if they had been men to me instead of puppets. But when i guessed what their intent was guessed that it was something sinister it was done before i could interfere. I saw him going backwards Over the Brink of a fissure in the ice tugging at a Dart that was in his Throat and when they had gone his murder i a they a she cried. A was there More than one Quot a yes a he said a there was a party. There must have been ten or twelve at least. When they had gone i flew Down and picked up that stick which erne of them had dropped and to think i might have saved him a her hand still rested on his Arm. To glad you told me a she said. She Felt the Arm stiffen suddenly at the found of Tom Fanshawe voice. A Jeanne take your hand away can you touch a Man like that can you believe the lies Quot but there with a peremptory gesture his father silenced him. But even he exclaimed at the girls next action for she stooped picked up the blood stained Dart which Lay at Philip Cayley s feet and handed it to him. A throw it away please a she said a overboard and As far As you even before the other men cried out St his doing the thing she had asked him to he hesitated and looked at hey in some Surprise. A de it please a she commanded a i ask ii Tom Fanshaw started out of his chair then As an intolerable twinge from bus ankle stopped him he dropped Back again. His father moved quickly Forward too but checked himself the Surprise in his face giving Way to curiosity. At a general thing Jeanne Fielding knew what she was about. Philip Cayley took the Dart and threw it fur out into the water. There was one More Surprise in store for the two fan Haws. When Cayley without a glance toward either of them walked out on the upper Landing of to amp a accommodation ladder the girl accompanied him and Side by Side with him descended the Little stairway at whose foot the Dinghy waited. A you Are still determined on that Resolution of yours Are you to aban Aon us All for the second time All Frame Hind i mean this later accusation against you was so easily a disproved a he questioned. A that Beautiful Faith of yours can to be called a i meant just what i said disproved. They shall admit it when i go Back on deck. Wont you wont you give us a Chance to disbelieve the old Story too a a i can never explain that now a he said a can never Lay that phantom never in the a i am sorry Quot she said holding out her hand to him. A i wish you a give us a Chance. this time he took the hand bowed Over it and pressed it lightly to his ups. Then without any other Farewell than that he dropped Down into Dinghy and was rowed Back to the Floe Back to his wings. When she returned to the deck she found that or. Fanshaw had gone around to the other Side of it to see the sky Man take to the air. But Tom sat rigid where he was. For the first time that she could remember he was regarding her with open anger. A i knew a a he said a that you never liked Hunter though i never could see Why you should dislike him and it did no to take two minutes to see that this Man Cayley with his wings and his Romance had fascinated you. Birt in spite of that i thought you had a better sense of Justice than you showed just she flushed a Little. A my sense of Justice seems to be better than yours this morning Tom a she answered quietly. Then she Unsung her binoculars again and turning her Back upon him gazed out shoreward. A i am getting worried about our Shore party a she remarked As if by Way of discontinuing the quarrel. A if there Are ten or twelve men living there in hiding from us willing to do unprovoked murder when they can with impunity a so you believed that part of the Story too did you a Tom interrupted. She did not answer his question at All but turned her attention shoreward again. A moment later she closed her binoculars with a snap and walked around to the other Side of the deck where or. Fanshaw leaning his elbows on the rail was looking out across the ice Floe. A Well a he asked briskly As she came up and Laid an affectionate Arm across his shoulder a i suppose you be i been telling Tom Why you did it Why a you made Cayley throw that Dart away i mean but you u have to Tell me too. I can to figure it out you had something in mind. In a a i Haven to been telling Tom a she said. A the does no to seem in a very reasonable mood this morning. But i did have something in Bifid. I was proving that or. Cayley could t possibly be the Man who had committed the a i suspected it was that a he said. A a it a the stick that proves it really a she said. A you remember How puzzled you were because the end of it which you held it by fit your hand i discovered Why that was when you sent me in to get it a Short while ago. Its a left handed stick. It fits the Palm of your left hand perfectly. You la find that that is so when you try it and or. Cayley i i he old Man nodded rather dubiously. A Cayley May be ambidextrous for anything you know a he objected. She had her rejoinder ready a but this stick. Uncle Jerry dear was made for a Man who throw with his right hand and or. Cayley can. He did it perfectly easily and without a us dec Tina Ai All Why i want Chafter it. Toms confession. At intervals during the Day those enigmatic Al Worda of or. Fanshawe recurred to the girl with the reflection that they wanted serious thinking Over at the first convenient Opportunity. But the Day wore away and the Opportunity did not appear. The Captain of the yacht his name was Warner was on Shore in command of the searching party but the first officer. Or. Scales remained on Board. He was in Possession of All the data though they had not told him the Story of Philip Cayley s old relation with the murdered Man. A it stands to reason a he said a that the Only party of White men that could be Here would be the survivors of the Fielding expedition. We know from the new that stung or. Fanshaw brought aboard that there is one such survivor Here. If there were any considerable number of them left Able bodied enough to walk across the Glacier we could be sure they a be Here on the Shore waiting for us. We could be certain they would have made some attempt to signal us As soon As they sighted us. A if they weren t White men but indians Chuck test they a have been quite As glad As White men to get a Chance to go Back with us As far As St Michaels. A i in the third place if they were not Chu cotes but some strange unknown murderous band of aborigines there have been even one survivor of the Fielding expedition. A of course that a net an absolute water tight line of reasoning but it 3eems to me there is a tremendous probability that its right and that this flying Man has lost his by four o clock they had decided that whether or not the Skyman s Story might be True it was High time to Send a Relief party ashore to find the lost ones. At five of clock accordingly the Relief expedition went ashore and Tom Fanshaw and the girl were left alone on the yacht. Two hours later perhaps after they had eaten the supper or Hin Jeanne had concocted in the Galley they sat Side by Side in their comfortable deck chairs gazing out across the ice Floe. The evening was unusually mild the thermometer showing Only a degree or two below freezing and Here in the Lee of the dec House they hardly needed their furs. They had sat there in silence a Long while. Toms Promise that they would keep a brisk Lookout against a possible attack on the yacht had passed utterly from both their minds. It was so still so dead still the world about them was so utterly empty As to make Kny thought of such an attack seem preposterous. Finally the girl seemed to Rouse herself from the train of thought that had preoccupied her mind straightened up a Little and turned for a look into her companions face. But thi9 Little movement of her body failed to Rouse him. His eyes did not turn to meet hers but remained fixed on the far horizon. I a moment later she stretched out a hand and explored for his beneath the great White hear skin that covered him found it and interlocked her fingers with his. At that he pulled himself up with a Start and abruptly withdrew his own from the Contact she coloured a Little and her brow knitted in perplexity. A what an old Bear you Are Tom a she said. A what s the Catter today it a not a bit like you to sulk just a a cause we disagree about something be disagree All the time but you be never been like this to me a i always told you i was a sullen brute when things went wrong with me although you never would believe it a he said. A a in a a i done to want you to be sorry a she told him a i just want you to be a few shades More he seemed not to be Able to give her what she wished however for he lapsed again into his Moody abstraction. But after a few minutes More of silence he turned upon her with a question that astonished her. A what did you do that for just now a at first she was in doubt As to what act of hers he referred to. A do you mean my hand a she asked after looking at him in puzzled curiosity for a moment he nodded. A cwt Hyp because i was feeling a Little la thorns. I suppose and sort of tender hearted and wed been about half quarrelling ail Day and i did no to it quarrelsome any More and i thought my big brother a hand would feel Well grate us and comforting you she was curious As to Why he wanted the explanation but she give it to him without the faintest touch of coquetry or embarrassment. A i can to remember Back to the time a she continued a when i did no to do things like that to you just As you did to me and neither of us Ever wanted an explanation before. Are you trying to make up your mind to disown me or something Quot he leaned Back moodily into his chair without answering her. After a Little perplexed silence she spoke again. Quot i did no to know things were going wrong with you. I did no to even suspect it until this morning when Uncle Jerry said a a what a Tom interrupted. A what does the governor know about it what did he say a a Why nothing but that you were playing in rather hard Luck he thought and that i was to be Nice to Yoh. Is the world Goi g badly really badly really badly a that Curt monosyllables was evidently All the answer he meant to make. At that she gave up All attempt to console him dropped Back i a her chair and cuddled a Little deeper Down under her Bear skin her face three quarters away from him turned toward that part of the sky that was already becoming glorious with the tints of Sunset. A a you be never had any doubt at All have you that i really deserved the Job of being your big brother that i was that quite As genuinely a of i had been born that Way a a no a she said a of course not Tom dear. What put such an idea into your head a he paled a Little and it was a minute or two before he could command the words he wanted to his lips. A because of my Hopes i suppose a he said unsteadily a because i had hoped absurdly enough for the other answer. You asked As a joke a while Back of i meant to disown you. Well i do from that relationship because in a not fit for the Job because be cause the come to love you in the other she looked at him in perfectly Blank astonishment he would not meet her eyes hts own their pupils almost parallel gazed out unseeing beyond her. Slowly her color mounted until she Felt her whole face burning. A i did no to know a she said. A you have let me go on thinking a a i did no to know myself until today a he interrupted her Stormly a i did no to know i knew that is. But when i saw you put your hands on that villain j Cayley i wanted to kill him and in that Sam Flash i knew Why i wanted turning suddenly to look at her he 1 saw that she had buried her face in i her hands and a crying forlornly. A ooh i am a brute a he concluded a to have told you about it in this a what does the Way matter that a not what makes it hard. It s Loving i you so much the Way i do and having to Hurt you. Ifs having to lose my j brother the Only brother i Ever there was a Long miserable silence after that. Finally he said a Jeanne j if you do love me As much As that the Way you do not the Way i love you but love me any Way could you a could you marry me just the same id never have any thought in the world but of making you Happy. And i d always be there you could count on me you a a done to she interrupted Curtly. A a done to talk like that she shivered and Drew away from him with a Little movement somewhere a near Akin to disgust he winced at it and reddened. Then in a voice that sounded curiously thick to her curiously unlike his i own he asked a question a if i had i told you All this a month ago told you How i Felt toward you and asked you Loving me the Way you do to marry me just the same would you a of i suppose you would have refused. But would you have shuddered and shrunk away from me like that a a did i shudder and shrink away a she asked. A i did no to know it i Wasny to angry i m not now. But but that was a terrible thing you asked of a would it have struck you As horrible a he persisted a if i had asked it a month ago a a perhaps not she answered thoughtfully. A a in be changed a Good Deal in the last month since we sailed away from san Francisco and left the world behind us our world a and came out into tills great White empty one. I done to know Why that a i he was speaking with a sort of brutal intensity that startled her. A i know. Ifs not in the last month you be changed ifs within the last 24 hours ifs since you saw and fell in love with that murderous lying brute of a a i Don t know a she said very quietly. A whether you re trying to kill the his eyes did not turn to hers but remained fixed. Love i have for you Tjie old love or not Tom but unless you re very careful you la succeed in doing it i done to think i want to talk to you any More now not even sit Here beside you. In a going to take a Little he held himself rigidly until till she had disappeared round the end of the dec House. Then he Bent Over and buried his face in his hands what the thing was that roused him to his present surroundings he never i knew. He was conscious of no sound but suddenly he sat erect and stared about him in amazement. It had grown quite dark. It must be two or three hours since Jamie had left the chair beside him and announced that Aho was going to take a Little walk. He spoke her name not loudly at first for he thought she must be close by. But the infinite silent spaces seemed to absorb the sound of his voice. There was no sign that any sentient thing except Bis very self had heard the words he uttered. Then he called louder. The Steps were rather difficult to negotiate but by using both hands to supplement his one Good foot he succeeded in creeping Down them and then in making his Way along the corridor to the girls door. He knocked faintly at first then louder and finally cried out her name again this time in genuine alarm. Fie tried the door found that it was not locked and opening it and switching on a Light perceived that the stateroom was empty. He heard footsteps crossing the deck overhead. No that could not be Jeanne it was a heavy tread a curious. Shuffling tread. He closed the door behind him. Then he limped slowly Down the corridor toward the foot of the companionway. The heavy tread wag already descending the stairs. He turned the Corner stopped Short and gasped. And that was All. There was no time even for a cry. He had caught one glimpse of a monstrous figure Clad in skins huge in bulk hairy faced like a Gorilla. And then the Man or beast had with beast like quickness lifted his Arm and struck. And Tom Fanshaw dropped Down at his feet senseless. Chapter Vii. The Rosewood Box. On the girl. Tom Fanshawe a passionate Stormy avowal had the effect of a sort of moral earthquake. It left the ground beneath her feet suddenly unstable and treacherous it threatened to bring Down about her ears the whole Structure of her life. The very thing she had relied upon for shelter and Security against outside troubles and dangers was on the instant fraught with a greater danger than any of them. Foj the first few moments after his avowal she had Felt no emotion other than that of astonishment and incredulity. Even when he asked her if she could not marry him anyway though the question revolted her she told the truth in saying that she was not angry. The anger came later but it burned into a Dame that was All the hotter for its tardiness in kindling. It must have an outlet somewhere and As such the promenade up and Down the other Side of the deck was altogether insufficient. The sight of a Small boat at the foot of the accommodation ladder seemed to offer something better. So pulling on a pair of fur gauntlets she dropped into it cast off the Painter shipped the pair of Light oars it contained and rowed away without any thought of her destination of any destination whatever without even a very Clear idea of what she wan doing. She must do something that was All she knew certainly she pulled away from the yachts Side with re idea that she was running into an possible danger. It was half a mile perhaps from Tae yacht to the particular bit of shelving Beach toward which she unconsciously propelled the boat. She rowed steadily without so much a a gainer Over her shoulder until she Felt the grate of the Shingle beneath the Bow. She became aware not Only that she had unconsciously come ashore but also that the yacht Wras nowhere to be seen. A Bank of fog had come rolling in from the eastward so heavy As to Render Sui object too paces away totally invisible. The clump of empty buildings Bere on the Beach could hardly be half that distance As she remembered yet looking round from her seat in the Row boat she could make out no More than their blurred masses against the White ice and Sand which surrounded them. She scrambled out of the boat and pulled it High up on the Beach. The fog made the air seem cold though for the Arctic it was a mild night. Two of the abandoned buildings on the Beach behind her were Mere Sheds windowless absolutely Bare never having served evidently any other purpose than that of storage. But the third and largest As she remembered it offered a shelter to at j was becoming attractive. There were some rude bunks in it where she could rest comfortably enough and unless she was mistaken. Scales had left in the hut a half burned Candle which they had used in exploring its dark Interior. She had a Box of Wax Vestas in her pocket. She could go in there and make herself at Home and at the same time keep an Alert ear for a Hail from the yacht. She found the Candle in the place where she remembered Scales had Laid it Down struck a Light and dredged the Candle into a knot Hole she turned toward one of the bunks with the idea of stretching out there and by relaxing her Muscles persuade perhaps her Over Strung nerves to relax too. She had taken a step toward it indeed before she saw through the Murk and Candle smoke the thing that Lay right before her eyes a rather Large brass bound Rosewood Box or Chest. It had not been Here in the afternoon when they had entered the j place for they had searched its Hare Interior thoroughly in the Hope that there alight be something which Previ Ous investigators had overlooked. This Box six inches High and a foot Long i or More could not have been he then. It was standing now in the most conspicuous place in the room in the very Middle of the bunk. To be continued need for two collars. Having bought a dog that he admired a Washington Heights Man undertook to buy a dog Collar. The clog had a neck nearly As big As his head and the dealer advised the Man to buy two collars. A what for Quot said the Man. A the s got Only one neck so i guess he can get along with Only one Collar can the a a maybe so a said the dealer so the Man went away leading the dog by his new Collar and Chain. In less than a week he brought the dog Back. A a in a afraid i can to keep a said. A the is too obstreperous. I Eanet keep him tied up. His neck is rile Bliest part of Bim and be is As Strong As an of. Therefore it is a Sinch for him to slip his Collar a that is Why i wanted you to take two collars a said the dealer. A put both on and fasten the Chain to the Back Collar and he can tug away All night without getting Loose. He May commit suicide but be wont get Loose
