to take our outfit—you did something like that before, if you'll remember."
"Will you let me up?"
"We will if you'll promise not to run away," answered Carl.
"That's the talk—let us make a prisoner of him!" cried Ike Akley.
"You have no right to touch me," said Shep. "You did very wrong to steal our things, and to try to burn down our cabin."
"We—er—we didn't steal any things—we just ran off with them," said Ham Spink.
"It amounts to the same thing."
"Then your crowd just stole our boat and our canoe," put in Carl Dudder.
"Is your boat gone?" asked Shep, for this was the first he knew of it.
"You know well enough it is."
"Where is our boat and our outfit?"
"Didn't you just take that too?" asked Jack Voss.
"Oh, then Snap—" began the doctor's son, and broke off short.
"Was that Snap Dodge in the boat?" demanded Ham.
