"Thero'B no danger, is there?" asked
tho gill, her fnco slightly paling as she
tpoko. "Father bus always been afraid
of it, you know."
"No; 1 do not tkiuk thoro is. However,
I guess it'll conio out all right, Miss

Tho villago was built in a long, strag
gling line down tho narrow valley be
tween tho hills. Hero and thoro on tho
hillsides were tho mills in which tho oro
was worked, and winding like a' groat
yellow snako tho stage road ran back
and forward until it ended at "Carter's,"
tho universal fctorc, saloon and hotel,
which might have been called tho center
of tho placo. At tho head of tho valley
was tho dnru built by the mining com
panies in paitnership, which stored up
tho water itbed in the niills and which
tho shrewdest of tho engineers about
Cartel svillc did not belies o particularly
safe. Tho houso occupied by Mr. Davis
was in tho lower part of the village, built
of wood like tho rest, and was a pretty
place to look at iu summer, with tho
flowers in front, which Miss Chloo had
raised with to much euro.
For ten days past the rains had boon
heavier than any man remembered to
havo seen, and tho gullies, which wero
diy during tho summer months, were"
now miniature torrents. Tho dam was
full, and tho wasteway at ono side was
open wide, while down between its rocky
walls tho water rushed night and day.
And during all that week it lained,
rained, rained, until people becamo seri
ously ulanned over the possible outcome.
Iu tho mean time Will Fosdick saw
Chloo Davis three times. Ho would
havo seen her moro had it been possible,
for certainly there was no lack of desiro
on his part. Each time ho resolved to
put his fata to tho question, but each
timo ho catno away without having done
so, and then spent an hour reviling his
own timidity, which seemed to tio his
tonguo just when ho wanted to speak.
And Mis Chloo! Miss Chloo's pretty
eyes sparkled as she laughed in bur mu
sical fashion over her own thoughts.
Miss Chloj was not afraid, for she know.
Now Year's day came on Wednesday
in 1800, and in tho afternoon about 3
o'clock Will Fosdick carao out of tho
laboratory of tho Star of tho West and
looked, as usual, down tho valloy to
wheio tho Davis houso stood, no could
seo tho figure of ft girl standing in front,
and ho wondered wholher ho would have
a chance that evening, and if ho had it
whether ho would havo baud enough to
take advantage of it. And- as ho stood
he heard in the clear, pure air a peculiar
noise, and turning ho eaw about half a
milo away a foaiful sight.
Tho gteat dam was covered with a
wavo of brown water pouring over tho
top. As ho looked this scorned to sink
down for a second, then riso again, ami a
rolling mass of water swept down tho
narrow valley. Tho hotisos in its path
went down liko grabs beforo a galo amid
tho pluleks and cries of tho people.
Fosdick himself was at a height which
made hun safe, and he stood for a min
ute or two like one in a dronui, pinching
ru Kor.r fsro tjij; wjiTPn.

down into the surging flood, carrying
with it two men and a woman with a
child in hor arms, who had climbed out
on tho roof. Onco a man's body was
shot up by tho wator until it stood waist
high, and the man struggled, waving
his arms and trying to escape. Then he
was dragged down by tho legs by tho in
carnato cruelty which had thus given
him a glitnpso of life, only to' snatch it
fi om him f orover.
Will Fosdick started as though Rtrnck
by a bullet. In watching the frightful
tragedy before him ho had forgotten
Chloo. Was sho safe? no turned and
looked eagerly down tho valley. For a
moment a mist teomed to blur his ores,
and then ho saw clearly tho houso was
not there. By a determined effort ho
turned and walked Blowly back and for
waidftfow times, for ho realized that
before nil things it was necessary for
him to bo cool and to show a lovel head.
Then ho looked out beforo him.
Tho flood of water was nearly a quar
ter of a milo wide It had evidently
destroyed tho greater part of the village,
and although there wa3 no longer a tor
rent, yet tho current was very swift. To
reach tho placo where tho Davis houso
stood Will Fosdick would lwvo had to
cross the water, and this, as there was
not a boat in tho village was impossi
ble. There wai a chanco, porhaps,-to
cross about five mile3 down, where tho
valley narrowed to tho Needles, two
great spires of rock which had had a
biidgo thrown across between them for
the uso of two mines, ono on either side,
and Will Fosdick started as rapidly as
ho could walk. It was a dreary trip,
with evidences on every Hide of tho
awful desU action which had been
wrought by tho wator. IIo carao acioss
the body of a man, tho ekull smashed in,
which had been loft on tho ground by
tho first great wave, and with a shudder
recognized it i.s t1, it of Mr. Brooks, tho
mparinteiidunt of tho Star of tho West.
lie paiiEud bug enough to rover it with
stents eo tho coyotes could not get at it.
About a milo from tho Needles, aa
Will Fowlifk wuh picking his s ay among
the utonos which covered tho ground, ho
liuaid a MUiud as though fcomo ono wero
nobbing. Ho lu.lUd and ll.Hoiiod. There
could bu no doubt thut it won u woman

1 hold of him with tho giip of u Hrong
limn and dragged hitu down until bin
feet touched tho ground. With a tre
hiouilous effort ho vprmig up, und reach
ing tho top Btruel: out, lighting his way
Inch by inch out towaul tho rocks. A
heavy board charged down at htm, and
ho ducked just in timo to save his head;
ho mot a radio of wreckage and was
forced to cn.wl over it, cutting his leg
cai a than) nail. Llit by bit ho worked
rihcnd, but all tho whilo ho was being
Bwept down the stream, and ho knew
tho current through tho Needles inubtbo
death. Neating tho lowor rock ho inado
a determined dash for it, only to bu
driven off by a timber and carried down.
For a moment ho thought his life had
been risked in vain, when tho current
slackened and ho found himself floating
to tho rock in an eddy. Reaching it and
crawling up ho lay for a momont to
gather breath and a littlo strength be
fore attempting tho rescue of tho wom
an ho camo to save. Then climbing
over tho top hu lowered himself down.
As ho saw tho brown hair n quick throb
(startled him, and in tho whisper of ex
citement ho called. Tho woman raised
hor head and his look mot Chloo's eyes!
It did not tako Will Fosdick two sec
onds to leap down and seize tho girl, to
lift her up into his arm and to carry her
up on tho lock. It ,7as as though hu
had tho strength of teamen! Then hold
lug her'tight ho kissed her passionately.
There wos im moro shyness, no more
hesitation; ho had rescued his lovo from
death, and ho had her safe. And Chloo
put hor head down on his shoulder and
Bobbed, clinging to him closely and now
and then trembling violently. Death
had been ery near to her that day I
"How on earth did yon get here, inv
darling?" ho asked when tho gill became
a littlo quieter.
"I don't know, Will. I was standing
in frout of the houso when suddenly the
water swept mo oft my feet. It rolled
mo over and over; it seemed to predi mo
to death. I felt something and caught
hold of it, aud then I fainted. How long
it was beforo 1 camo to myself I do not
know, but when I woke, up I was lying
on some boards which wero floating on
tho water. I pulled myclf upon them
and waited. I was huio I woidd die, and
I thought about you"
"My own love!
"I thought you must be dead, and 1
did not care much whether I was baved.
Then I cried, thinking I would never seo
"That was what I heard, my darling!"
"Did you know itwas meV"
"No. 1 was hurrying down to cioss
at tho Needles and I heard tho cry."
"And you were going to Bavo me, but
stopped for another girl'r'' said Chloe,
with tomething of her own tone. "Oh,
"Well, dearest, 1 could not leave a
woman to die," began "Will.
"Well, dear," said tho girl very Foftly
and earnestly, "don't you know how
proud I aui of you for doing it? Don't 1
know how you wanted to go on and look
for mo? And then if you had not 1
should havo died. But how did you get
"I swam out."
"What! Across that awful place?"
asked tho girl with a hhudder, clinging
closer to him.
"Yes. It wasn't so bad. I'd swim
twenty of them to hold you in my arms,
Chloo, and know you lovo mo. You do
lovo mo, don t you?
"Yes," sho whispered. "
"You never let mo know it."
"You never asked mo," she answered
with ,i laugh. "Dut, Will, how can we
get ashore? I want to know how mother
is and if eho'u tafe."
"We can't got ashore till the water
goes down, lou couiu never uvo to
cross that current. But, Chloo, look
thoro! That's your house there, stranded
jubt this bido of that point"
"So it is, aud there's mother looking
out ot the window. Is it 6afotherc?''
"Perfectly; tho water ia going down.
Ts your faer at home?"
"No; lie went across tho mountains
this morning. But what an awful tiling
And so, talking over tho horror of tho
flood, and at times talking about their
love, tho two staid on tho rock all that
night. Will contrived to mako u iiro at
which they dried their clothes, and by
early moruing tho water had gone down
enougli to let him carry her ashore.
They made their way to tho houte,
where Mrs. Davis kissed nnd hugged her
daughter as ono raised from tho dead,
Mr. Davis camo homo about noon to
find all welt and bafe. IIo und Will
Fosdick joined tho men who wero bring
ing thoso who had escaped together, and
the Davis lioubo was made into bomu
thing liko a hospital beforo night. Heip
camo from tho surrounding towns, and
gradually things began to look well
again. It was nearly tho end of March
before Will Foddlck and Chloo Dais
wero married, but as lie was then tho
huperintendent of tho Btar of tho Wwat
they had tt good stai t. Dut neither of
them will over forget tho flood, nor tho
hwiiii which 'Will took in tho twirling
biown wator to reach tho rock whom ho
could rwouo tho "other girl," and where
hu found bin lovo und hid wife.
