The Cryptogram: A Story of Northwest Canada

release date: Sep 28, 2020
The Cryptogram: A Story of Northwest Canada
I have long had in mind to set down the story of my early life, and now, as I draw pen and paper to me for the commencement of the task, I feel the inspiration of those who wrote straight from the heart. It is unlikely that this narrative will ever appear in print, but if it does the reader may rely on its truthfulness and accuracy from beginning to end, strange and incredulous though parts of it may seem. Thirty years ago! It is a long time, but the magic power of memory laughs at wider gulfs. Every incident comes back to me with the vividness and clearness of yesterday. I hear the echo of voices that have been silent these many years. Dead faces, some smiling and some looking fierce-haired, take dim shape in the corners of the room. Beyond the open window, where birds are twittering in the overhanging ivy, an English landscape of meadow and woodland, hills and hamlets, rolls far in the sunshine of a June morning. It is the year 1846, in the reign of her gracious majesty, Queen Victoria. I close my eyes, and I am back in another world. I see the Great Lone Land—its rivers and lakes, its plains and peaks, its boundless leagues of wilderness stretching from sea to sea. I sniff the fragrant odors of snow-clad birch and pine, of marsh pools glimmering in the dying glow of a summer sun. I hear the splash of paddles and the glide of sledge-runners, the patter of flying moose and deer, and the scream of the hungry panther. I feel the weird, fascinating spell of the solitude and silence. The Great Lone Land! Truly, to those who have known it, a name to conjure with! As it was then so it remains to-day, that vast, mysterious, romantic realm of the Canadas. The territory of the Hudson Bay Company, chartered remotely and by royal warrant when Charles II was king; the home of the Red Indian and the voyageur, the half-breed trapper and hunter, the gentlemen adventurers of England, Scotland and France; a land of death by Indian treachery and grizzlies, starvation and freezing, snowslides and rapids; a mighty wilderness, with canoes and sledges for the vehicles of travel and commerce, and forest trails joining the scattered trading posts. There I, Denzil Carew, was born. There was my home from the cradle to manhood, and there my story lies. In that wild country I was nurtured and bred, schooled in the lore of the woods, taught to shoot and swim, to bear fatigue and to navigate dangerous waters. Nor did I grow up in ignorance of finer arts, for my father, Bertrand Carew, was an Englishman and a gentleman, and he took pains to give me the benefit of his own education and culture. Who his people were, or what had brought him out to the Canadas, were things he never told me. My mother was the daughter of a company factor in charge of Fort Beaver. I do not remember her, for she died when I was a year old. At the factor’s death my father succeeded to the post, and ten years later he was killed by a treacherous Indian. Fort Beaver was then abandoned, a new post having been recently built, seventy miles farther north. This was Fort Royal, on the Churchill River, one hundred miles south of Hudson’s Bay, and I went there as assistant factor—I had already worn the company’s uniform for three years.

In Friendship's Guise
Book Excerpt: ...n easel. He turned up the lamp, opened the envelope, and read the contents: "Dear Jack: --"Good-by forever. You will never see me again. Forgive me and try to forget. It is better that we should part, as I could not endure a life of poverty. I love you no longer, and I am sure that you have tired of me. I am going with one who has taken your place in my heart--one who can gratify my every wish. It will be useless to seek for me. Again, farewell. DIANE."The letter fell from Jack's hand, and he trampled it under foot. He reeled into the dainty bedroom, and his burning eyes noted the signs of confusion and flight--the open and empty drawers, the despoiled dressing table, the discarded clothing strewn on the floor."Gone!" he cried hoarsely. "Gone at the bidding of some scoundrel--perhaps a trusted friend and comrade! God help my betrayer when the day of reckoning comes! But I am well rid of her. She was heartless and mercenary. She never could have loved me--she has left me because she knew that my

Book Excerpt: to think of it."There was a slight interval of silence."It's only a matter of time, then," replied Swart, "and you'll have that in plenty. It was lucky you picked up that paper while we were waiting in the store. I wondered what was wrong when I saw you give a start.""Lucky! It was more than lucky," rejoined the other. "It means freedom and safety. It means that these bloodhounds of the law are off my track; that I can sleep at night without dreaming of a checked suit and a ball and chain. The world believes I am in my grave; you and one other know the truth. And, by- the-way, Swart, you must stop calling me Gabe--even when we are alone. It won't do.""All right; I'll try to remember," muttered his companion. "But let's start, we have a long paddle ahead of us."Overhead, on the narrow bridge, Val was breathing in short, quick gasps."Oh", for one more look at their faces!" he whispered, inwardly. "But the voice is his--I am sure of it. Thank Providence for bringinRead More

Guy in the Jungle, a Boy's Adventure in the Wilds of Africa
"It was November in London. The great city was buried under a dank, yellow fog. Traffic was temporarily checked; foot passengers groped their way by the light of the street lamps, and the hoarse shouts of the link boys running before cabs and carriages with blazing torches rang at intervals above the muffled rumble of countless wheels. "In the coffee-room of a quiet hotel on the Strand a young man stands by the window, looking pensively out on the misty street. He is quite young, with light hair that falls half over his forehead, and a drooping, golden mustache, and in rather startling contrast to these a deep-bronzed complexion that tells of foreign lands and tropical suns." In Guy in the Jungle Sexton Blake tracks down a missing British heir in India only to find a wild boy raised in the wild by panthers! William Murray Graydon was an American-born writer of adventure and detective fiction. He wrote more than 100 Sexton Blake Stories. Pseudonyms include Alfred Armitage, William Murray Gordon, William Murray, and Tom Olliver.

Among the Pathans Illustrated
When Jack Chetwynd dropped into the Bundar Cafe at Delhi one scorching afternoon in September of last year and informed me that we were ordered off to the Punjaub, I could have shouted for joy. I did not do it, though, for I well knew how scornfully Jack would regard any such demonstration. I merely nodded my head, lazily, and went on reading the Post with as much calmness as if such news was a mere every day affair.
