"Well, It s ycr own " the Singlet sprang abruptly forward. "Iiown, Tip,1 I down!" he snarled nt the "bull," and 1 cursed as It proved too late. As he 'spoke, the little stranger, frightened at the menacing nosing of the unimiil, ; had thrust out her little foot to drivo ; him off. There wus n rush of tha ugly brute, a Hock of children Hod screaming away, and the little girl was down, one ankle Inclosed in the jaws of the beast, the teeth pressing through the shoe Into the tender flesh. Tho Mop reached her side in a mo ment and slipped his hand under tier head, and the little girl, too terrified to cry out, looked appeallugly into his face. lie swallowed hard anil Blip pressed an oath, "t'hoke de mutt off, somebody!" ho demanded of the crowd which hail quickly collected. "Th' h-I you will!" snapped tho Slugger. "He lights tor night, and ho don't get choked till then. Ml dope him off. Chase up to Mick's saloon, Sammy," he directed, "inf he'll give e d" stuif." As Sammy cpn.l away, he tattiel apologetically to the crowd. "He'll be only a l..w minutes," ho i.'tow.ed. The little girl moaned, and the Mop, w hit" face, 1, turned to the quivering l'up by his side. "Nip him, boy," no said, curtly, and with a ytlp of pleas ure the spotted dog sp aug in ami gripped the throat of tho while cur, effectively stopping his wind. In a moment the girl was free. Then the Mop sprang off and away - ho had hoard a warning cry but it was too late. In the oxeiU'iiieiit, no one had noticed the police, (summoned and directed by the children who had Med at the bulldog's attack, until they were upon them. Into the crowd they charged, plying their heavy sticks with indiscriminate energy when they ! di.-covered that the injured little girl I was the one they had been ordered to ' find by n distracted, irate sergeant. One of them quickly carried hi r nvay, ; almost on a run, while another seize 1 I the Sli:gg( r, who was getting to his feet and looking vengefuliy at the Mop. "There's your man," and ho pointed out the latter, "lie's wanted ! anyhow, and do dog's his," he lied I with a vindictive sneer. The Mop, ' with a call to his dog, sprang for the j edge of the pier, hut a police stick 'ixportly thrown between his legs I tripped him heavily. In a moment he ! was fettered at the wrist ami being 'dragged along. lie didu t try to ex , plain. "Vouse has pot tue wrong," he asserted: "ask do girl." Duo of his captors laughed harsh ly. "She'll be right there to tell us don't wurry," he answered; "you'll wish idle wasn't." As they led him through tho door of tlio station, the Mop thought of tho l'up ut his heels. They would im pound tile little aniuinl and kill him. There was but one thing to do. He suddenly turned on him and witli a swing of his leg kicked him through the open doorway into the street, "(lit," ho snapped, as he did so. Then they would have handled him roughly, but for the presence of the little girl who, her Injured foot skillfully ban daged by the attending surgeon, was volubly explaining to a mystified uncle a childish impression of dogs and fights, and men who used bad words, lie lit lirst comprehendeit little except that she spoke kindly of the man be fore him. Finally his puzzled expres sion tailed as tho truth of her story, and the part the fugitive had playeis, became clear. "(iivo us th' story," he demanded of the Mop, and the latter, in tho ex pressive words of iiteu who tell the truth, gave It. When he had ceased, the sergeant looked quietly about him. The crowd that had followed tliu prisoner as he was led along the street had not ven tured into the station, and tho little room contained only his men, men whom ho could trust. Ho knew that th" prim r was u fugitive, a crim inal, a man the city "wanted." Ilia hand tested lightly on tho golden curls of tiie child on his lap. He raspiiigly cleared his throat, and spoke to his nu n. "Forget it, boys," he said. Then he turned to tho Mop, and nodded toward tho door. "Von travel," he ordered; "wo want ye, but ir wo get ye, we'll get yo right." That night, under Hock i;, u happy man softly whistled u cheerful iiuio us he tenderly rubbed tho bruised side of tb l'up. "Pretty r.ard kick, tli, boy," no murmured, but the dog affoctiobLel licked hU hand. Inland Sea Spreading Upon Colorado Desert if) Shea The Saltan Basin Flooded By Boat Over a Large Part of the Colorado Desert Barriers Building. The great Colorado desert of southern California, the scientists tell us, Is "a more pronounced desert than those parts of Sahara whore reg ular tnetororologleal observations are made." Hut today one may go by boat over the lorge part of this "pro nounced desert," It Is with the Inun dation of the Salton basin of Colorado river this article Is to treat. First let us consider the course taken by the Colorado river and the certain features of tho desert region. The grout river rises In tho south western part of I'toh and flows through tho southwestern pluteau. After the river emerges from the flrnnd canyon It turns abruptly south nnd, forming tho western boundary of Arizona, flows through a low desert region, emptying into the (iulf of California u little distance below the United States boundary line. The Colorado desert extends from tho Colorado river westwurd to tho bases of the coast range of San Diego county. A considerable por tion is below sea level, was once a portion of an of can bod. as shown hy tho remains of sea nnlmaU and the Immense deposits of salt the salt Industry Is a very Important industry In southern California. Also at one CANAL IN Xllfc. rime a portion of the desert was tho basin of a fresh water lake. In recent times floodlngs from tho Colorado river have produced a temporary shallow lake known a3 the Salton sea. The part of tho desert that Is be low sea level is called the Salton sink. In tho past six months a great change has taken place here, the water turning from channels long fol lowed which load into tho Gulf of California and following a new course leading to the Salton sea, Inundating the Salton basin. A correspondent ot the New York Herald, writing from Yuma, Arizona, tells of a most ex citing trip recently taken by boat over a largo part of tho Colorado desert a strange voyage indeed! The writer speaks of the interest tho desert region has long hud for him and adds: Most interesting of all at the present moment was the Salton sea. Its rapid rise; its flooding of tho main line of tho Southern Pacific rail way, necessitating tho building of some 40 miles or so of new track upon higher ground; the fears expressed by some of tho settlers near Mecca and In the Imperial valley that ere long they would be swamped out of existence; tho wild and fantastic the ories propounded by tlio thoughtless and sensational to account for tho existence of tlio sea, ns for instance It was caused by a subterranean in flow from the Fuclfic ocean; the lact that tho whole Colorado river was pouring Into it and that desperate efforts had been made and still were being made to check the mad flow; the) equally interesting fact that, many years ago, Dr. J. P. Widney, who af terward became tho president of the University of southern California, strongly advocated tho national gov ernment's doing what Is now being so strangely accomplished; the fears expressed that the growth of tho sea would change for tho worse the cli mate of the Salton basin these and many oJier considerations determined mo to go and lollow tho hitherto un fit. lowed course the ovorllowed Colo i ado directly into the Salton seo. it U with regret we turn from fol lowing tho adventures of the party of whites and Indians on their way through tho "dcilish" mosquito, over rapids, escaping underneath banks, until at last they are again in the main current ot the channel. Hut we mast concern ourselves wi.h what is meant by the inundation of tlio desert lands, who aie ulTected there by, the causes, etc., clc. Kach year, in the latter part of May and throughout Juno nnd July, over flows have not been uncommon on tho ; level plains ot tlio Colorado, The ( Welting nuows from the far away fa 1 mountains send raging torrentt through the canyons, and In some places nn annual overflow Is always looked for. There nro three channels of dis tribution for the floods; some of the overflow enters the bed of an ancient river, called by the Mexicans the Ala mo, and (lows westward 40 or f0 miles, then turns to the north and af ter another 50 miles empties Into the Salton sea. Another portion Is car ried Into Volcano lake, and here a strange separation takes place; part (it tho water flowing down to tho gulf, others northward to Salton. Uut the desert atmosphere was wont to evap orate tho water so rapidly that speed- j ily after on nfterflow the bnsln would j be found practically dry. An unfore seen result of some recent irrigation project Uus lately filled the unusually dry bed of tho Alamo, the water working Its way by this passage through to the Salton sink. Fears ore entertained that the entire valley between tho San Jacinto and San Hernardino mountains, will he flood ed. These mountains enclose the sink on three sides, on the fourth sed imentary deposits aro piled up many feet above sea level. It was In 1901 operations were bs gun for an irrigation system that L.KdiiHT REGION. should reclaim the Colorado desert, work started on the Imperial canal system. About ten miles of tho chan nel of tho Alamo river were dredged and connection made with a series of waterways extending over an urea embracing lno.Oiii) acres; a portion of the irrigated territory in Mexico, the remainder in southern California. Tho Southern Pacific railroad con structed a blanch road into tho irri gated territory, and numbers of peo ple, tempted by the variety and extent of the crops, made settlement 'acre. About 12.000 persons now dwell In the villages nnd on tho irrigated farms. An article in tho Scientific Ameri can gives the cause of the apparent ly mysterious diverting of the Colo rado Into tho Salton sink. The Irri gation company found a most difficult problem in tho way of successful carrying out of their work, water be ing checked at tho head of the canal on account of accumulation of detri tus; und decided to secure another supply rather than he put to the enor mous expense of dredging the canal. A few miles below the head of the Alamo channel they excavated a channel and connected It with the Colorado river. This work was com pleted In November, 1904, the ditch excavated was less than a mile la length and about 50 feet wide. But a flood occurred a few weeks after It was completed, worked its way along tho lower channel of the Alamo to tho Salton sink, Into which It is still flowing. What was hut a mere ditch has become greatly enlarged, we find nearly all the water of the- Colorado being diverted from the Gulf of Mexi co, the river bed to the gulf prao tically dry save at flood time, and the great volume of water following a northwesterly course to the Salton sink. As yet the Southern Pacific is the worst sufferer from the inunda tion, has been compelled to change tho location of Its roadbed, rebuild over 40 miles of track. Two Ineffectual plans have been tried for turning the water from it present course, there uro now in progress of construction two massive barriers which it Is expected will, with tho flood aiding in removing the deposits that have piled up In tho for mer riverbed, permanently keep the Colorado to its original course CIlUISTOPllliK WlIbSTEr..

Table and house decorations Just now are very much In the minds of the many prospective brides who will have home weddings and receptions within' the next few months. Each young woman considers this the great est event or her life, and she Is anx ious to have every detail of the func tion beautiful and effectively carried out. A pretty arrangement and adorn ment of the tables have everything to do with the room's good appearance. Small ones, set out In horseshoe shape, make an outline that some brides favor for the good omen of the arrangement. Some one with poetic understanding of the truth that the wife Is the warmth and light of a household, as well as Its center, simply grouped the tables about the hearth, the bride's being nearest to It. PIncIng the ta bles on a circle, with the bride's In the center, looks well, especlolly when hers is directly under the chandelier and garlands radiate from the latter to each of the other tables. This decoration can be used, however, only when there are not too many points of attachment In the circle and when the garlands are fastened to the highest part of the chandelier. If there are too many strands, or they are put too low down, they will surely interfere with the bridal party. A glass vase completely wound with white satin ribbon and filled with white sweet peas, giant white sweet nlyssum and maidenhair ferns makes a lovely and unusual centerpiece for the table given up to the wedding party. Unless the cloth is of lace the vase should be set on a lace doily and a bit of the fern laid about Its base to distinguish it more clearly from the dolly. The vase, slender and absolutely smooth of surface, and nt least tin Inchei high, should be close ly wound with two-inch ribbon and If fancied a bow may be tied low down on the stem. A little fitting nnd a few stitches nre needed to cover the base and the lip of the vase. A little while satin slipper overflow ing with blossoms and resting on a bod of them is a dainty tler-oratlon for nil the tables at a wedding feast If one cares to buy so many slippers. Again, for the bride a triple array of flower baskets is charming, and tle same decorative' scheme can be car ried out In single baskets on the other tables. When this Is used the middle one of the group of three needs a rather high, slender handle. To this ribbon is tied in a bow, and the ends nre brought down to smaller low-handled baskets close by on each side and again tied In a bow on these. The two end baskets should face the mid dle one at right angles. HOW TO WEAR THE HAIR. Velvet Ribbons and Ornaments of Va rious Kinds Are Again the Fash ion for My Lady's Tresses. Something In the hair Is again one of the must haves. For day wear the black velvet ribbon is beginning t j rival the elaborate set of combs. It is pat on two ways, ether ai a s .to 1 hidden at the sides of t lie low role I i hair, or It Is tle.l around the high knot wl'h a bow in front. A bunch of lltt'e curls intervlyel with u pun or two Is tho lashionabl knot, und It Is done at un rxagjerattd . height and in tho evening Is tied ! around with n io!ored velvet ribbon to match the gown. Th sigh o' th s hainlr;'ssing is a wclio r.e relief from tho low dressing witu the rolled pompadour nnd line of combs. Another arrangement of curls show? them at the back of the head I nder MODISH L'OIKFfHK. the hat. It Is a fact that many wotnpu i dress their hair solely with a view to meeting the exigencies of their huts. , With the expert milliner the hat Is tried with reference to the profile, and next in order the back Is scrutinized, while the front Is passed over with a brief glance. Apart from the hat the coiffure Is often impossible. The wrea'h Is still worn for the the ater. Vi.lvet bows mixed wl h a circle of roses or leaves with. natural cherries or n circlet of miniature holly leaves and red berriei has a bla-.'k sequlned bow for the front. Ixiosely made ro settes of soft satin are popular and are put on with one pinned In front toward the right, nnd the other nt the naps of the neck, but on the hair. Th s Is .a style particularly affected .by young I girls, with whom the lnrg bow of j black or white satin or taffeta contln I uos to be worn. For any gown on the j empire order the osprey Is worn, and 'one of the most becoming angles, par ticularly with this style of dress, is to set It horizontally. O ni.o rlbbona tied in n twist and flnl-diel with uu stiindlng bow.-, the q'illl tird in wl'h ribbon loops, are among the pretty things seen In the shops and are nisi furnished by the bpst costumer-i to go In wltn everl.ig gowns. For the put ting in of airgiettes there li a row ornament, it conies 1 1 n little jeweled crowu or half moon comb. We Know It. Your troubles are not Interesting un less you are rich. A NICE LITTLE FROCK. Jffade of Nnvy Bit S:rgc Ttth Blouse of White Cashmere Adorned with Blue Dots. The tklrt and bretelles of this dress are of navy-blue serge, nnd will be found very useful for wearing with different colored blouses. Our model Is of white cashmere spotted In pale blue; It is quite plain, simple shape, a little full at the neck la front, and FOR GIRL FIIO.M FIVE TO SEVEN. Is finished with a small turn-down col lar ornamented with a bow In front. The waist has elastic threaded In th hem to fit the child's waist. The skirt Is arranged in deep plaits stitched down for about six Inches. The waist band, to which the bretelles are fixed, is pointed in the center of front and back; It should be made up over mus lin and lined with silk or sateen. CURLING FEATHERS. The Work Is Done by Hand How Some Are Built Up About Farming. Curling 1-. always done by hand. Tak ing a sm.ill steel Instrument lik a blunt knife, the operator carefully takes each frond of the feather nnd skilfully presses It with a finger and thumb against the instrument until the rib curls out In a graceful bow. Patience and care make, or otherwise mar, the ostrich feather at this stage of Its existence. Another branch of the business Is the "manufacture" of ostrich feathers. The best bits of the smaller varieties are takeu in hand by skilled female operators, who cut and trim them up carefully, nnd then fix the bits to gether upon a stock with needle nnd thread until a perfect looking feather Is made. Ostrich feather boas are made on this principle from the finest small feathers. In the early days of ostrich farming great fortunes were made. Feathers were then worth 100 per pound, the plumes of n single bird often realizing 20 to 30. For a good pair of breed ing birds it was no uncommon thing to pay as much ns 500. But none of these prices could be got now. From seven to eight guineas a pound is the usual price nt the present time for fine ostrich feathers. The mourning plumes used by undertakers are of the largest variety, and sometimes cost as much us o00 a set. VOILE IN HIGHEST FAVOR. This Sheer Material Has Come Back Into Style Some Good Ways of Trimming. Voile is to be again used for stree. and house gowns, nnd it will be muiie into blouse und coat suits for children. Braiding is a safe and fashionable trimming and will be used In the shades of the material. Don't get the stiff wenves that used to do duty, but weaves that lend quite a festival uir to the soft wlde-meshed kind that is much prettier. Coronation braid Is a very attractive addition to a simple frock and can be easily done at home. One has a design stamped on the fab ric or if there is a member of the family clever with a piece of chalk. a scroll or star design can be drawn in pink or white which will easily rub off. The braid Is overcast along these lines. On cashmere and voile this is a simple way to get a smart effect. Hedebo Embroidery. I fear it would not be practicable to put In the pattern as you suggest. Hedebo embroidery has a close but tonhole stitch worked around the large figures which nre to be cut out, the bnttonholo edge always being worked toward the center of the figure. The linen Is cut away and fancy lace stitches are introduced. Among those most used are the Maltese cross nnd the spider stitch. Mercerized cotton from 23 to 30 is used for the work, ac cording to the weight of the material you are embroidering uion. If you will get a sheet of red impression paper, lay your pattern upon it and the black pongee underneath it you can take off the design by drawing over each line with a hard, sharp pencil. O'.ove Etiquette. A lady doe3 not remove her glove to shako hands, and It Is not necessary that she should remove them at all, unless she is spending the day. For a large dinner, where the lo,ng gloves are worn, covering the arm, a lady takes off only the hand of tho glovi and slips' it into the wrist. A lad Is never well dressed for the stree;, for receptions, for any evening enttr talnment, without gloves. For Chapped Hand3, Glycerine, two ounces; egg albun.ei.. to ounces; oil of roses, two drop. Rub the mixture luto the skia suverui times a day.
