Admiring the hounds, he Introduces himself, and learns her name Is Clinton. With western hospitality she Invites him to the ranch to meet her father. At the Clinton home Warner learns his new friend's name Is Betty. He Is welcomed by her father. Southern Civil war veteran and owner of HertT)anos valley. He tells them something of his ambitions and his feeling that he Is destined to be a "Water-BearerIn the town of 3oldn Warner shares an apartment with his old 8TNOPSIS. Her-min- oi ." Columbia college chum, Ted Baxter, carefree and somewhat dissipated youth, only child of his widowed mother, who controls the family fortune. At a club luncheon Baxter Introduces Caleb to Wilbur Cox, leading- business man and president of the water which company supplies the needs of Golden. He gives Cox an Inkling of his ambitions, and Cox, Impressed, invites him to - dinner that night. During dinner Cox asks Caleb to call at his offioe next day. He does so and Cox arranges a meeting between Caleb and Hinckley, the water company's chief engineer. Baxter tells Caleb he Is In difficulties with a girl, Mary Morgan, Cox's stenographer, who Insists he must marry her. With Hinckley, Caleb looks over the water company's source of supply, the Crystal springs, tn Hermanns valley. Prospecting In Hermanos valley, Caleb meets a man, Evans, who boasts of his ability, through "divining rodB," to locate water without boring. Caleb comes upon a picnic party, the festivities being In honor of Betty Clinton's birthday, and Is welcomed. CHAPTER VI Continued 9 f "I don't know," he answered. "I have been given a chance to go up to Beaver lake on a new project, but I do not have to accept Just yet. Meantime I am looking around. I went over the Crystal Springs property yesterday." "Did you?" broke In the other girl. "I've been there.' Isn't It an Ideal fJrtct for a picnic or a honeymoon?'' ' Caleb laughed. "I am afraid I was more practical Jn my Imagination," he said. "I suppose, being from New England, I can't help that I was chiefly Interested In the water supply. But It was beautiful." He gave them a little description of the trip and of how the dams had And he withstood the earthquake. added what Hinckley bad told him of Crystal Springs valley before It hnd been turned into a great artificial lake. "I can't help feeling aorry for the farms that had to be abandoned." said Betty Clinton. It seems a shame when you think of the fertile fields being turned to silt, the schoolhouse and the little church that had stood o long being torn down." "Think of what the reservoir meant to Golden I It made a city possible," returned Caleb. "There Is sentiment fin both sides of the matter. Where a dozen families were displaced the water gave opportunity to thousands. Public utility must be the first consideration." "I suppose so. Just the same. If I had owned a farm there. I would not have sold." "if the rest were willing they might have compelled you to." "You mean by condemnation proceedings? Well, they'll never do anything tike Unit to llcrmunos valley, for we own the whole of It." "Not even for the good of the many? If It was necessary?' asked Caleb. Carmen looked at him curiously, struck by a sudden change In his voice. He took things concerning his profession very seriously, did this young engineer, she decided. Betty Clinton shook her head determinedly In answer to Caleb's query. "Not while my father lives. Nor while I do. We might sell a part of the valley. We have talked of doing so. We "do not ose much of It. And the land has advanced In value. But imtiilng must touch Kl Nldo. You did not see the little cemetery In the cedar grove. There are three generations of Clintons burled there. My mother's grave among them. They must never be disturbed." Carmen saw the muscles bunch in Caleb's jaws and wnndcre-.lFur a moment he whs silent. For a pHrt of bis vision had seen llermniios valley restored to lake, dammed and holding storm HMters. Hetty Clinton sat quietly and Caleb gazed a' nothing throng!) half closed eyes. Carmen regarded them with a pout. "Vou're a cheerful couple for a birthday picnic," she observed. "As for Thurston, be tnust bo making that camera, or gone to town for film." She got up and stretched llthely. Then she screnmed suddenly nnd shrilly turning to cling to Betty Clin face. Be stood down-winfrom the group and It was plain that he resented their presence. Tbs great head was rained and lowered uncertainly, the wide carving horns tossed menacingly. There was no shelter If the bull meant mischief. To run was to court disaster. Carmen clung to her friend trembling, her eyes big with fear. Betty Clinton was pale but she faced the bull and not a muscle had quivered. "I don't know Just what we had better do," she said quietly to Caleb. "He's working himself up Into a rage. If we could make I'adilla hear and understand." Caleb resented this a little. He did not realize that the girl was thinking of Pudllla mounted, acting as vaquero. Perhaps the resentment quickened his wits to action. Carmen screamed again Just as the bull lowered his head and charged straight for them. Caleb snatched at Carmen's hair and grabbed the scarlet beret. "It's your hat that bothers him," he cried. "I'll handle him. Bun both of you. I'll hold him. Run!" He waved them off with a shout as the bull came on. He saw Carmen, her black hair streaming from his careless tug for the hat, snatch at Betty's hand and start to run swiftly toward the wall. He saw, for a Thurston's startled face appearing over the stones as he ascended, heard the girls cry out and Thurston shout. He faced the bull, the flaming beret In his hand, prepared' to play toreador, unarmed. The bull roared as his glaring eyes caught the flare of the scarlet taunt waved by the man. Blind to everything else, centered In the desire to glut his rage on the offending color, he raced over the turf, leaving a little cloud-trai- l of dust, shaking the ground with his weight as he pounded It with his hoofs. Caleb waited, not quite as coolly as he had wished, warily Judging distance. As the shnrp horns swept up, scooping for the cloth he held out at arm's length, Caleb sprang to one side and ran forward as the bullied brute, snorting and maddened, plowed past him, front legs stiffened In the attempt to stop and wheel, the great head clumsily turned toward the red beret and Caleb, who halted twenty yards away and provoklngly displayed the halt. The girls had got safely beyond the wall. In a second or so they would be out of sight. He had now only himself to look out for. The hull turned and came racing back. Caleb knew that he could not dodge forever. He could distinguish Betty's clear, high voice calling for Padllla. The words were In Spanish. He recognized a few of them. "Toro! RIata ! Cnvalho!" Then the bull took up all his attention. It came on with Incredible speed, the lumbering gait As Caleb seemed freed by rage. leaped aside the brute swerved so swiftly that a horn grazed Caleb's arm. ripping cloth. This time he had to turn and run down hill, away from the trees. iHIs foot caught In the hole of a ground squirrel and his ankle was wrenched as he stumbled and Jerked It clear. It was not a bad sprain but It handicapped him and would not get better with exertion. The bull had halted more easily going up hill. It was chasing htm before be had got well He had to sprint to Into his stride. And this get the chance to dodt;e. time he ran for all he was worth. He had almost won the trees when the bull caught up the distance between them. Caleb glanced over his shoulder.

It is definitely established that the Kumninchin branch, having fought through the province of Shensi, driving back General Liu Chen Hun, entered Horun at Tunkwan and are advancing toward Che nchov.', the terminus of the Lunghai railway. Leaving his remaining forces at Chenchow, General Liu visited in turn Chengchow and Taiyuanfu, appealand General ing to Marshal Pel-FYtnhsishan for aid. Thus far his appeals have been fruitless and General Lui is now appealing to Marshal is helpWu Pei-FChang Tso-Llless owing to insubrolin:tion among his ranks and Yenlisishan is apparently unwilling to do more than defend his own province of Shansi against the invaders. get CHAPTER VII The Water Mine They were all In the patio, talking In the dusk. The conversation had become general. Caleb was a listener. He had found, to his relief, that, after the earnestly expressed thanks of Clinton, of his daughter and of Carmen, he was not regarded In the light of a hero. . It seemed to he generally granted that any of them would have done or tried to do exactly as he had done and he was grateful for the way they took It. Carmen managed to Infuse something personal Into her thanks, a warmth that hinted, that the exploit had been all for her sake, wltJIi Betty a more or less Incidental accessory. Caleb was a listener - from preference. He wanted to analyze, if he could, something of the stirrings of these Westerners. The talk was mainly of Brompton'a historic series of panels, the subject Introduced by Betty Clinton, with the Idea, Caleb thought, of covering him from Carmen's sallies. It was very plain that the artist was head over heels In love with the vivacious brunette, who kept him dangling. Caleb, smoking, pondered over Betty ClinDid she Intend to ton's attitude. marry Thurston? he wondered. The rancher was on eminently Intimate terms with the family. She called him by his first name, Wendell. He went early the next morning, returning to Golden. There he packed a grip with clothing and some of his Instruments, and left a note for Baxter, saying that he would be away for several days. He took up his quarters at a country hotel near' the sta tion in Coyote canyon and hired a rig. determined to make a thorough Investigation of Callente plain. With his pocket instrument be managed to get, unnoticed, tolerable surveys of elevations and distances.

Farm Relief Bill Offered to House Washington A new firm relief bill tn last year's gown altered to fit this season's demands appeared in the senate, but a controversy over whoso name should grace it- prevented its introduction in the house. The measure, embodying the essential features, cf the McNary-IIaugebill, but shorn of most of its objectionable provisions,, was offered by Senator McNary, Republican, Oregon, father of the bill, which has weathered two years of stormy wrangling, and the new chairman of the senate agricultural committee.
