After a mite or two. however, tie asked
uie to go ahead and if I met with Mrs
Rone to make her wait his arrival, but
be added in an aside. "Tell her notb
ing about Sylvester "
I reached the village soon after
dawn, but already the people were
gathered at the store, where every
one was discussing the case.
As I heard nothing of Mrs. Kone. I
set out toward her bouse When I
met ber 1 noticed thai Iter seutle face
wore a changed expression I deliv
ered my message
"I'll never apeak to November again
as long as I live!" she said with deep
vlndictiveness. "November's played
double with me. I'll show him!"
I walked beside her in silence. and
just before we came In sight of the
houses we met with Joe alone. He
had evidently left Sylvester iti safe
custody, .loe glanced from Sally to
me. 1 read understand ins in bis eyes
"We've got him trapped safe. Sally
Not a hole for him to slip out by."
Sally's rage broke from her control
"You're just too cute, November .loe."
she blazed, "with your tracking and
finding out things and putting Val in
jail! What do you say to It that I've
been fooling you all the time? I never
lost no pelts! 1 only said it to get tbe
laugh against ye. Ye was beginning
to believe ye could hear the muskrats
"Is that so?" inquired .loe gently.
"Yes. and I'm going into Lavette
this minute to tell them!"
Joe stepped in front of her. "Just
as you like. Sally. But how'll ye ex
plain these?" He flung open the buu
die of skins he carried.
Mrs. Hone turned color. "Where did
ye find them?" she gasped.
"On his back."
She hesitated a moment, then. "1
gave Val that lot." she said carelessly
"That's queer, now." said Joe, "cos
It was on Injia Sylvester I found
Sally stared at Joe. then laughed
suddenly, excitedly. "Oh. Joe. you're
sure the cutest man ever made la this
world!'' And witb that she flung her
arms round his neck and kissed him.
"I'd best pass that on to Val Black!'
eaid Joe calmly.
And Sally's blushes were prettiei
than you could believe.
There It no need for me to tell bow
Black was liberated from the band
of the crestfallen Evaus. who was as
nonplussed as I myself had been at

It seemed Indestructible.
I have never looked forward to any
explanation more than that which
November gave to Mrs. Rone, Black
and myself tbe same evening.
"It was the carcass of Rizpah give
me the first start." said Joe. "As soon
as I saw that I knew It weren't Val."
"Why?" asked Sally.
"Tou remember it was hacked opV
Now here was the ease up to that: A
thief had robbed Sally, and all the
sign he left behind was a few threads
of his necker and au English made
cartridge. The thief goes out. and old
Rlzpah attacks him. He shoots her

Why?" We all shook our heads.
"Because he wants lo get his bullet

"By .lore!" ! cried
"From that it all fits in It seems
funny that the thief should drop a
cartridge, funnier still that he should
not notice he'd left a bit of his necker
stuck to the unils on the door. Still.
I'd allow them two things might hap
pen. But when it came to his having
more bits of his necker torn off by
the spruces where Evans found them.
It looked like as if the thief was a
mighty poor woodsman. Which he
wasn't. He hid liis tracks good and
cunning. After that I guessed 1 was
on the right sceut. but I wasn't plumb
sure till I come up to the place where
he killed the partridge. While he was
snaring it he rested his rifle ag'in a
tree. I saw (he mark of the butt on
the ground and the scratch from the
foresight upon the bark. Then I knew
he didn't carry uo English rifle."
"Elow did you know?" usked Sally.
"I could measure its length agin the
tree It was nigh a foot shorter than
an English rifle."
Vol's fist came down ou the table.
"Bully for you. .loel"
"Well. now. there was one more
thing Besides (hat black fox. Sally
here missed other marked pelts. They
wasn't much value. Why did the thief
take them? Agaiu only one reason.
He wanted 'em for making more false
evidence agin Val "
He paused "Go on, .Toe." cried Mrs.
"When Mr. Quaritcb and I came to

without wakln' him."

He meant robbin' Sally, too. and had
his plan laid Ue must 'a' gone to
Val's and stole a cartridge and the bits
of necker before he robbed Sally's
house. Last night he started out to
leave a few cheap pelts at Val's, but
he had the black fox skin separate in
his pack with a bit o' tea and flour
and tobacco, so if we hadn't took him
he'd have lit out into Maine an' sold
the black fox pelt there."
"But why should Sylvester have
such a dowu ou Val'.'"
Joe laughed. "Ask Val!"
"Ten years ago." said Val. "when
we was both rising twenty year, I
gave Sylvester a thrashing he'd likely
remember. He had a dog what weren't
no use, and he decided to shoot it. So
he did. but he didn't kill it. He shot
it far back and left it In the woods,

"The brute!" exclaimed Sally.
"He's a dangerous liijiu," said No
vember. "and he's of a breed that

Joe. "You'll sure be tired of each other
Sally looked at Val, and Joe caught
"Leastways." he added, "you'll pre

We all laughed.
The Case of Miss Virginia Planx.
NOVEMBER JOE and I had been
following a moose since day
break. moving without speech
Suddenly from somewhere
ahead there broke out the sound of
two shots and after a minute of two
"Two shots going ou at steady inter

There they go again We'd best fol
low them up."
We traveled for half an hour, guided
by the sound, and came in sight of a
man standing among the trees. We
saw him raise his rifle aud tire twice
straight upward to the sky
"It's Planx!" said Joe tn surprise.
"What? The millionaire you went

As we approached Joe hailed him
Planx was a thick shouldered, stout
man. his big body set back upon his
hips, his big cliin thrust forward in a
way that accentuated the arrogance of
his bulging lips and eyes.
"Ho! It's you. Joe!" he cried.
"Yes. Mr. Plans."
"Thafis lucky, for 1 need your help.

The words made me gasp, and not
"Miss Virginny!" cried Joe. "You
can't mean that. Nobody would be
brute enough to kill Miss Virginny!"
As we walked Planx gave us the fol
lowing facts: It appeared that he had
been spending the last two weeks in
a log hut which had been lent him by
a friend, Mr .Wtlshere. His household
consisted of one servant—his daugh
ter's nurse, a middle aged woman whom
they had brought with (hem froin New
York—two guides and a man cook. On
the previous day Miss Virginia had
taken her rod after lunch, as she had
often done before, and gone off to the
river to tish
