INDIAN SAVES LIFE OF A SMALL
GIRL HE FOUND IN A CANAL
YUMA. Oct. 3. An Indian, by the
merest accident, yesterday morning
saved the ife of the small girl of
i.Mr. and Mrs. Raj Priest, near the
I r'dge that closes at erclani.'iiioi
'headquarters the Indian saw the lit
tle form going up and down in the
current, and succeeded in drawing
-the child out. Mrs. Priest had missed
the little one and was searching for
her at the time. The child was all
but drowned, but soon was reviled, i
'Mr. and Mrs. Priest were so staggered
t the narrow escape that for some
time they w ere nearly beside them-'
'selves. Then the Joy which came be-1
cause of the rescue made their hearts
0 out toward the Indian In a manner
that was truly appreciative. Little
21iss Priest Is one of the prettiest and
most loved little girls in town. She
evidently got too close to the water
while playing and fell In.
