Thirty-five miles further, stopping en route to examine the old village of Yatz and the Yalan River, brought us to the extreme northern land of the Queen Charlotte Islands, North Island. Here Capt. Marchand lay with his ships trading with the natives nearly one hundred years ago.

The Hauptman von Brenner," and he smiled, "is teaching the general some American card game, I believe. The whole staff is card-crazy. They have little else to do but play." "And what plans have you already made for Fraulein Ruth?" queried Major Marchand. "While she remains under this roof she will pass as Frau Krause's niece.

No one had heard of that every one had been at home, getting dressed for this festive function, thinking of good suppers and of wedding bells.
