KEROINE OF THE ROAD
THRILLING race vith death
THAT RIVALS FICTION.
Ftfteen-Year-Old Qlrl Makes Daring
and Successful Ride In Effort to
Save Life of Injured
From the "front" of the now Grand
Trunk Pacific railway comes a talo of
a tunning raco
with death that
rivals the fiction
tion. Llttlo Mary
Fowler, aged fif
teen, tho daugh
ter of a camp
cook, a few nights
ago mado one of
the most daring
and t successful
in an effort to
save the life of
an injured labor
er, and in her
througn mo uarK-
ess of tho night over a wild and
.wountainously rough road the man
owes his life.
Ono of tho laborers working upon
tho grado had been Injured Blightly in
the arm by a flying piece of wood.
Carelessness In the handling of this
evidently trivial wound caused blood
poisoning, and before It was realized,
the man was almost at death's d5or,
and only tho quick attendance of a
doctor could save him.
Tho only animal in tho whole camp
that was in any way serviceable was
a medium weight horse used for
hauling tho dump cart on tho rock cut.
There was no saddle and the only
person in camp that was of suffi
cient light weight to be carried by
tho animal for any distance to make
any speed was fifteen-year-old Mary
Tho nearest doctor was at tho main
camp, 22 miles down tho line, and
tho country between was of the,
wildest nature, only a thin, half blazed
, trail winding In and out and a swollen
running mountain stream also In tho
pathway between the two camps.
But little Mary was game, and
astride the clumsy workhorse, with
only a tightly strapped on blanket for
a saddle, the girl started out over the
loumain irau on a z-inuu uasu wiui
Darkness falls quickly these early
winter days, and though she started
at four In the afternoon it was almost
black dark before she had covered
quarter the distance. The horse, too,
tired with the day's work on tho
grade, was slow and unsure of foot,
nd made but poor time in s.pite of
o frantic urging of Its .rider.
A llttlo over ten miles from the
camp, where the injured man lay dy
ing a swollen mountain stream cross
es tho trail, and though tho stream at
this point Is not more than 5,0 feet
across, It Is deep enough to force an
animal to swim. A, rough bridge had
been built for the crossing of foot pas
sengers, but no accommodation had
been made for animals. And the
horso absolutely balked at going into
the water. Crying and frantic, the girl
beat the animal and at last Induced it
to take to the water. The flr3t few
feet from the shore the water Is fair
ly shallow, but when the old dump
horse felt the water creeping up
around Its belly, It wheeled sharply
around and plunged back to the
Not vanquished, the girl leaped from
the animal's back and leaving it be
