The wind which had hitherto blown Slcak Milf in our faecal gun to waver and to dash the Snow Down upon us in every direction. It was to go on. The last faint lingering Shadow of a Hope passed away and to Felt there was nothing loft but to die.

Tiow we reached the shores none of us Ever knew but at length till battling against the blinding Snow a Snow shoes struck against a tree. Close behind it was Thicket of Dwarf firs and to shrank into its shelter saved for the time. For hours the show continued to fall As a i inexhaustible it length however it Censed and the setting Sun shone out in Tho Western sky red and angrily. The 1 indians said that a other show storm was at hand. So we set about making the Best preparations we could for the night.

Could 1 not w rite my statement and Send it by a Indian express i undoubtedly i could. But when i came to count i found it would not arrive in time unless someone was Ever at band to Burry the Inea Agac to the thu path however was a Indian figure of speech. To were travelling through an untrodden wilderness guided from a tout to Point by some Rock or Bank or quaintly formed tree. But these objects dwell vividly in the indians recollection. They had travelled this Road twice before and whatever in Indian once see remains imprinted in his Mem forever. At she Gashie a announcement i look is Over Tho Lake longing1 a. 1 could not boar to lose an hour fur less n Day und i said that porn am to might got across before the Viola no of Tho Snow storm a inc on. My guide Shook their Heads. However after a time they agreed to make Tho attempt. Eco Klingly off we started across the Lake Tho now fake floating and playing lazily around us and More than once we congratulated ourselves Flint their a Poi Rakiec had not deterred us. But when we halt a got about half was a toss the Snow storm came dashing Down in our face with a fierce gust that almost throw Limo four feet. Staggered and breathless we stopped. Near a the Brothers were i could see no More than the outlines of their dark form through the thick curtain of show which fell Between us while nothing was visible beyond but dazzling Snow flakes trembling whirling and Rushing to overwhelm us. A two must Quot cried she Gashie a keep the wind in our faces or to shall never reach Tho lie at once led Tho Way his brother and i following and with difficulty distinguishing him a he shuffled heavily on before us. Already Tho weight of Snow upon our show shoes impeded us greatly and it increased each moment until to turn in the Spring to Bury him. On the following morning we resumed our journey but it bad now become melancholy pilgrimage. The Day seem cd Long and dreary without the joyous youth whose Lively acts and ringing laughter had echoed Ranoug Tho old Trees. Towards evening for the Flat time in Al our travels we came on the signs of a human being. The Broad Trail of a pair of Snow shoes preceded us along the course to had to follow. My guide judging by the tracks announced the wearer to to an Indian and not one of the White Hunters who Are sometimes to to met in these to was right. The wearer of the gaily trimmed Hunting shirt whom we overtook about two hours after with his dirty Blanket Rifle Tomahawk and knife his Anns covered with bracelets and Bunches of ear ring weighing Down Tho lobes of the can fully attested the accuracy of Sheg Ashick a forc knowledge. Tho indians greeted each other with grave Courtesy and Tho Samo polite reception was extended to me. But in Spito of All their Gravity i fancied i it or Oei Ved a gleam of Joy in the wild eyes of the str Auger. No wonder poor fellow thought. Perhaps he to passed the whole Winter without looking on one human face. He belonged to a party of in lians living far to i to North of Green Shako River and his dialect was a Groat trial to my Indian erudition. As his Puth for the next Day or two Ould be the sane As ours the St Tiger proposed to join us. Though i must contest that Tho sight of his Blanket caked with filth Mude inc feel a repugnance to in company yet i was too prudent to object and afterwards Whin we stopped Tor the night and i found that leaving Tho fro making to she Gashie he was Content to big the about to collect fuel and to assist to in forming our nights shelter 1 Felt More Charity towards him Aud was More resigned to his raising his pile of brunches near my own. As we sat that evening round our Camp fire 1 had a better of it or Unity of observing our new acquaintance. He was a tall finely formed Indian and More muscular than 1 had Ever seen any of his moreover there was an unusual race. Before Long Chi goo s Iblis position of the morning returned and is the Duy wore on lie continued to get worse until by a vetting it was quite evident that of was in Trio first stage of a fever. We dial the Best to could for him by giving him hot Coffeo und such other trifling comforts a our slender Stock afforded. The next morn my broke Bright and Beautiful but it was evident Tomt poor Chingoon. Could not travel that Day. The fever increased and the ague so Shook him Thul it was with to greatest difficulty to could take the Coffeo irom our hands. Tho Suatos Scro still empty tied this Day also was passed without food. On Tho third morning clip goo was still to Etc. No Yutuc had la can snared or shot and hunger pangs were becoming very fierce. To wore so weak that we scarcely creep. About mid Day a Hare Caino leaping by through the show. 1 shot it and we dressed it immediately. To this Day 1 think that that was the sweetest meal 1 Ever tasted. We Renado a part of Tho Hare into soup tar our poor it Atie it but to was unable to take it to our Surprise 1�?Tor it seemed to us delicious beyond expression. From that Day we never wanted food and were Abl a to give All our thoughts and anxieties to , whose last hour was evidently drawing near. He held out his hand to his brother and she Gashie forgetting Tho stoical Demeanour of his race which he had tried hard to maintain burst into tears As he folded it in his Boom. When he released it it fell cold and stiffened upon the Snow. Fierceness in his Demeanour and a strange fire gleamed from his Eye. He took the tobacco we gave him with great pleasure but he was that our firewater was nil expended. However lie did not let Tomt dump his spirits but talked on with More than Indian solubility. She Gashie a Stock of news for we Rich he asked was soon exhausted. Poor fellow he and Little heart to talk of anything except his beloved brother to whose Story the stranger listened with a contracted brow but with few indications of sympathy. In his turn he treated she Gashie to a number of amazing and horrible stories w hich were current in the Woods. 1 lost the Gist of Many of these thro not being Able clearly to comprehend his language. But there Wum one i understood somewhat better than the others it was concerning a very fierce Indian called great re mailed Bear who came from far beyond the great Lake Superior Aud who on Bis return Home from u Hunting expedition had found his Squaw and children the prey of a band of Cannibal indians. Enraged it the sight this hero fell upon them single handed and took the scalps of All except one. That one had fled and Ever since had prowled through Tho Woods gushing his Teeth and seeking him everywhere. The missing Indian had shrouded himself in every sort of disguise a but All to no Pur Hwo a said the stranger savagely a for slays every Indian lie meets so that that villain must fall beneath his Nilu at when i had got Over the Novelty of the stranger s excited manner and Glenin at la Ogle 1 loot Patia Aca mod still bold ing Bis right Arm tightly Down i Loo waned the hand which held my . Bat Quick As thought changed his knife into Hia left band also. Then commenced another rolling and tearing struggle More like that of tigers than of men for my foe assailed me fiercely with Bis Taeb. We stabbed at each other wildly and Many a wound i gave end received. At length the Indian relaxed Bis hold fell Bock Aud i arose victorious. My first thought now after a fervent prayer for my de Liverence was for my poor guide. I found that though desperately wounded and bleeding profusely be was not died i bound up his wounds As i Best to a of a find placed him upon Hia bed. My own wounds though numerous were marvellously slight More cuts than stabs Aud oven those my thick clothing Hud prevented from doing much damage. 1 dressed them and heaping More Wood on the fire Sank Down beside it to watch my poor she Gashie. The next morning she Gashie was so weak from loss of blood that each moment i expected to see him pass away and leave inc alone in the Woods to die in my turn. I now bitterly that 1 had Ever entered on this disastrous Eute Riise. However there i was Aud had nothing for it but to make the Best of it so 1 act to work buried my dead enemy in a Snow Bank collected Wood shot a Imre dressed it and returned to my sad task of watching my wounded guide. At the end of ten Days despite every Adverse circumstance song aspic was a great Deal better yet it was evident to both of us that it would la n Long time before he could travel. The poor fellow earnestly entreated inc not to stay with him but to leave him to i Fute and lie directed the in Tho right Way to pursue Iny journey. I would not have deserted a enemy thus much Les one wit i whom had faced sorrow danger and death. Yet powder and shot were rapidly failing. After much cogitation 1 took All the spare show shoes and by the Aid of a cur skin succeeded in making n Sleigh Cupullo of holding she Gashie very comfortably As Well As All our Rose proudly the next morning mid flaring inv companion in Tho Sleigh recommenced my journey. It was weary work to drag that Clumsy Sleigh the wasted Indian looking out now and then to direct to on our Way. I in often obliged to make Long Detour to avoid thickets and place where the Trees grew too close to admit my Sleigh Between them. When Day was �1� no i had the fuel to collect the fire to make shelter to prepare Siegn slide to move his wounds to Drous and then the game to Cook which i Hail killed during the div. Many a time i thought 1 should be obliged to give up the struggle. When 1 Lay Dow u to rest 1 a sometimes so tired that 1 could not have resisted another had Liu come to cud Tho work the first one Ltd begun and when morning reappeared 1 recommenced my tugging mid dragging with arms so weary Tomt i did not care if another Snow storm came and Scot us to sleep till the great Day of Awakening. Neither Indian nor Snow storm came and i wus compiled to go from Day to Day enacting by turns the parts of horse forager firc Ymker Cook builder Aud nurse. At length 1 became so exhausted Tomt one morning though it was scarcely Enid Day i began to look about inc for a suitable place to encamp for the remainder of the Day hid night tipping after such a rest to Start fresher on the following morning. Suddenly a thin column of smoke ascending from the Trees at a Short distance caught my Eye and turning off from our route i made the Best of my Way toward it. It roae from the hut of a newly arrived settler.
