Jack, hjppy i:» the light-heartedncsH
of bo. liood, thought il no hardship.
Winter wa~- approaching, however,
with its heavy rains and chilly nights.
■ ft was a bad job," said Martin one
day, gazing -it the slight foundation
of hi'" house. "I liadt't-ought fo built
so near the canyon. But jjie land was
so good f thought I'd save all I could
of it for the fiult trees. Tlikt cornea
of beiri' too savin'."
"Sever rain.j," his wife, "we're
j,oin to build better next spring."
"Ves. Tt.'s beer, n good year, and I'm
no end thankful for It. But [ must
ea .' I wish we'd got through the rains
aii t.afi I guess me an' Jacl.'ll bank
up a good bit this week."
The first rain bad come—not a very
long or eohl one, as would be the case
in the winter. .Tack still ijlcpt, in a
shed and Mrs. Martin iyas troubled
about it, but the tiny house seemed
to afford no corner jipt already filled.

emment works going on some miles
distant above Mm—a reservoir being
built to hold thb overflow of water
with a view to storing it for irrigation
qf tho lowftr lying laiida. In addition
to the promise o* security to his house,
it gave opportunity for getting work,
of *v!iii'h many of the poorer ranchers
were to avail.
"I'd rather like you to st#y about
v hile I'm goue, Jack," be said, and ihe
hoy's heart swelled with pride as he
added; "I want you to look after
things I'm snre you'll do It good and
Another long rain set In. Every day
•lack banked up bis "good and faith
ful" bust, but. the canyon slowly
filb-d after the ftng summer drought,
was each mornlrg dismayed at the
inroads made by the water.
"Jack." said Mrs. Murtln one morn
ing, "I'm get tin' a little uneasy at the
way things looks."
"I'm feelin' that way myself," agreed
Jock, who had just rome In with dis
may In his heart from a look at things
"I've a great mind to go over to
Neighbor Davidson's to ask if they
won't let us with 'cm for n feTr
dayp, till the next time Martin comes
home. I has- to stay without him."
"Couldn't I go?" asked Jack
"Well, I'd rather ask It myself. Hut
T don't ipritc know what to do about
Kitty. It's too far to carry her —even.
If you went to help mo."
"Leave Kitty with me. ."he'll stay
all rlfht —won't you, Kitty?"
Kitty replied with a crow and a
spring Into his outstretched arms.
Thus encouraged, Mrs. Murtln soon
after brPakfa-st took her departure,
saying in anxious tones: "Watch
them banks well. Jack. And I know
you'll be real good and careful with
Kitty. I'll be back early this even
An hour lat?r Jack wished with all
hts heart that Kitty was with her
tt other, as he went out to resume the
constant work of "banking up." At
or.ee he saw that a ne\ f condition of
things had set In. The house near the
canyon stood on a kind of knoll, the
ground on the land side of it sinking
slightly. The water in the stream was
higher that; he had before 'een it, and
h- now noted with alarm that af a
short distance nbovc the house gome
of it had left the main channel, and,
turning into the low, shifting sand».
h.;d . lit between the house r.nd the
bred, leaving 11 on an Island.
Toward the close of the day lie saw
that the flood hud spread on both :-;fdes
<>f the canyon so as to entirely cover
the roads which followed the stream.
Kitty's mother would have to take a
roifndabout toad through the eorrntrv
oud could not possibly r'-uch home
t'.iut uight Later he saw a furmer
passing on the other side of the new
channel. The man caught sight ot
-k iiid hail d him:
"You'd better get out of that."
"Why?" shouted Jack.
"Works above giving way. Been
weakening for the lust 21 hours and
lett'ng out the water. When they go
the. 11 tarry everything before 'cm"
What sl.ould he do? How could he
best care for Kitty?
"IT get the barn door arul float her
over. The water ain't runnin' swift —
yet. Then 111 carry her wherever her
mother is. I can do It, if I stop to rest
by the way.
Jack worked as he had never worked
before. The barn was a rude struc
ture, but it required uiore than the
strength of u boy easily to get the
door of the hinges. He tugged and
hammered until quite out of breath,
but at length had the pleasure of see
ing his frail bark moored as close to
the door of the house as he could get it.
"I'll move her out onto the porch
while 1 fix things," h« decided. "Then,
if thiutrs should go sudden, I could
grab her."

"Five and a half," I replied, thinking
of the glove.

knew before marriage, says a writer in
the June Ladies' Horns Journal. One
of them was the wife of a cleric in the
treasury department, who lived in one
of the most modest little homes in
Washington's most unfashionable dis
trict. This made no difference to Mrs. *
Cleveland. Often the white bouse car
riage colled to "pick up" the friend for
a d rive. Another of her intimate friends
in Washington was a young woman who
taught music to support herself. Mrs.
Cleveland obtained many pupils for
her. Another was the wife of a strug
gling lawyer, and eaah week a bouquet
of white house flower» came to cheer
the home of the friend of schoolgirl
days. A fourth was the teacher of S
small kindergarten, who, when the
