Fred and Polly
drew up their chairs , and Grandmother
Melton brought a steaming bowl of
mush from the stove and dished it into
two smaller bowls.
• Tin hungry as a bear , " observed
Fred , between mouthfuls. "I think
it's a shame we have to go so far to
school. There isn't a single boy or
girl In Springville that has to go half
so far as we do. "
"I don't see why father doesn't move
down there , " complained Polly , pour
ing more of the rich yellow milk over
her mush ; "he could get to his work
just as well , and it would be ever so
much pleasanter than this lonesome
place. "
"You must remember that your
father isn't a rich man , " answered
Grandmother Melton , gently. "He
owns this cottage , and if he moved he
would have to rent another home , and
perhaps he couldn't sell this one. "
The Meltons had only been in their
new home since the summer before. '
Both Fred and Polly had enjoyed it
very much indeed during the pleasant
warm weather of August and Septem
ber. Then the wide , swift Mississippi
had gleamed through the willows and
there had been unlimited boating and
swimming and fishing. But with the
coming of winter the roads choked
full of snow and ice , and the winds
swept up the river sharp and cold , and
it was a dreary , lonesome walk of four
miles to school at Springville. As the
winter progressed they had complained
more and more , and now for a week ,
owing to the spring freshets , P.olly had
been unable to go at all , and Fred was
compelled to make a long detour over
the bluffs to avoid the lagoons in the
river bottoms.
"They'll all get ahead of me , " Polly
nad sobbed ; "and I can't pass my ex
aminations. "
That morning Father Melton had
< gone up the river to help watch the
levees. Reports had been coming from
St Paul , St. Louis , Cairo and other
points farther up the great river that
the wa ter was rising rapidly. The
levees must be watched night and day
to prevent breaks. On leaving his
home that morning Mr. Melton had
told Fred that he would be back be
fore , dark , and that there was no dan
ger to fear from the water. All his
neighbors had told him that his cottage -
tage was high enough to be safe , even
in the greatest floods.
"It's after 9 o'clock now , " said Polly ,
as she arose from the table ; "I wonder
where father is. "
"I'd go out and watch for him if it
wasn't raining so hard , " said Fred ,
- and then he looked around toward the
doorway , anxiously.
He caught his breath suddenly. Then
he half rose from the table and pointed
at the floor. Grandmother Melton
dropped her fork noisily on her plate
and her eyes followed the direction in
dicated by Fred's finger. Polly sat still
and gazed at the other two , wonder
ing what it all meant.
There on the floor , crawling from
the crack under the door , was a dark
wriggling object. . At first Fred had
taken it to be one of the swamp rattlers
so common to the Mississippi bottoms ,
and his first impulse was to spring for
his father's rifle which stood in the
• Its the flood , " said Grandmother
Melton when she could get her wreath.
By this time the black ribbon of
water was spreading , slipping-into the
cracks and creeping out over the floor
toward the table. Polly broke into a
cry of terror. Even Grandmother Mel
ton seemed uncertain what to do.
Fred suddenly roused himself. He
remembered that he was the man of the
house , and that he must watch over
and protect it in his father's absence.
So he sprung from his seat and threw
open the door , not without a throb of
fear. It was dark outside , and the rain
came down in torrents. Curling up
over the step they could see the muddy
water , and they could hear the sound
of it slapping against the house. It
stretched away into the darkness in all
directions as far as Fred coulu bee. He
knew that it already must be a root or
more high around the house.
"The levee's broken , " said Polly , in
a scared awed voice. "Do you think
we'll be washed away ? "
At that moment something bumped
the side of the
against house with so
much force that the dishes rattled.
Kred ran to the side window , peered
out , and found that a big log had
.vashed down against the building.
• Grandmother Melton , who was usual
ly cool and brave under the most try-
Jug circumstances , was wringing her
'hands in terror.
"Hun upstairs , " shouted Fred , "and
Polly and I'll bring all the stuff we can
with us. "
Grandmother Melton waited no long
er. She crept up the narrow stairway
to the little attic. Fred ran to the cup
board and began filling his arms with •
( lishes of food , while Polly in her ex
citement seized the first thing that
came to hand grandmother's rocking-
chair and struggled up the stairs
with it
"We'll need clothing more'n anything
else , " called Grandmother Melton.
Fred ran back. "The floor-of the cot
tage was now entirely covered with
water. He splashed through it and
seized all the clothing , coats and jack
ets he could carry. Polly bravely
wiped away her tears , and when Fred
brought the loads to the stairway she
aMPgsrtayf i Wl'tfy i * T < aw ifitinrwawMiiw iiiiiwiwiwiw ii i
ran with them to the bedroom where
Grandmother Melton was sitting.
By this time 'the 'Tmllditfg had'begtn
to shake and quiver as the water beat
against it
"She's going soon , " shouted Fred.
"I'm afraid the water will' reach us
up here , " suggested Grandmother Mel
ton.Fred looked up. The celling was low ,
and just above him there had been an
old trap-door , now nailed up. In
stantly Fred seized the ax and burst
it open. Above they could see the dark
sky and the rain coming down in steady
torrents. Fred piled a trunk on top of
the table and climbed out on the roof.
He couldn't see far , but he could
hear the roaring of the water from
every direction. His heart sunk ; he felt
sure that they all would be drowaed.
Suddenly something thumped heavily
against the side of the building , and
the next instant the front end of the
room went up and grandmother and
Polly slipped down toward the rear
end. Fred narrowly escaped being
hurled off the roof.
"We're going ! We're going ! "
screamed Polly.
"We're just off the foundation , "
answered Fred , as bravely as he could.
Then he swung back down into the
bedroom and. helped Grandmother
Melton and Polly up through the trap
door to the roof. He covered them up
as well as he could and told them to
cling to the ridgepole whatever might
happen. Then he ran down for a coil
of clothesline. This he tied firmly to
the window at one end of the bedroom ,
carried the other end up through the
trap-door , along the roof and dropped
it over the eaves. Down he went
again and fastened it to the other win
dow frame. It would do to hold to.
Hardly had he finished his work when
the building gave another great lurch.
"Hold on , " shouted Fred.
The words were hardly out of his
mouth when he found himself thrown
violently from his feet He caught a
glimpse of the water pouring up the
stairway and then the lamp was cap
sized and went out. Next he found
himself pounding about in the water.
"Fred ! Fred ! " came the agonized
voice of Polly.
"Here I am , " spluttered Fred. In
falling he had caught the edge of the
trap-door and Polly helped him to the
"We had all we could do to hold on , "
gasped Grandmother Melton.
"We're moving , " shouted Polly.
They rocked and scraped and bump
ed along , with the water swirling and
crashing around them.
"It's our first voyage , ' said Fred , with
an effort to laugh ; "p'raps we'll wind
up in the Gulf of Mexico. "
But Polly didn't laugh ; neither did
Grandmother Melton.
A few minutes later they heard some
one shouting far out on the stream nd
they saw the glimmer of a lantern.
They shouted in return , but there was
no answer , and presently the lantern
was swallowed up in the darkness and
the three castaways were even more
lonesome and terrified than before.
They were compelled to cling firmly
to the rope and the ridgepole all the
time , for the house was continually
bumping against obstructions in the
stream and careening and jolting like
a boat in a rough sea. Besides this ,
they were wet to the skin and shiver
ing with cold and fright. Occasionally
huge forms would loom up near them ,
and they would see the outline of trees
or buildings floating down the river.
They were momentarily afraid lest
their boat should bump into something
and be broken up. If this happened
they Knew they would have small hope
of escape.
Quite suddenly they felt the building
grind on something , and then , with a
jolt , it came to a standstill. Thjy
could hear the timbers strain and creak
and the current of the stream splashing
about it , but it did not move.
"Well , we're anchored. " said Fred.
"I suppose we're out somewhere on a
sandbar in the Mississippi. "
"Do you think we have reached
Memphis ? " asked Polly , anxiously.
To Polly it seemed as if they had
been drifting for hours.
For a long time they remained al
most still. Occasionally they joined
their voices in a great shout , but there
was no answer. Fred said the water
reared so loud that no one could hear
It , anyway , but it eased their spirits
to be doing something.
At last they started again , with a
jerk and a shiver , as if some oi the
timbers of the building had given away.
They bumped on for. what seemed an
cndleas time , and then , after scraping
alon ? for some minutes , they again
stopped. By this time the rain hai {
ceased and the moon shone out faint- .
through the clouds.
"There's lights , " cried Polly , joyfully.
Sure enough , on the hill , not such a •
great distance away , they could see i
many lights gleaming out over the 1
water. Nearer , there were other lights i
moving about , as if in boats. 1
"It's Memphis , " said Polly , and then 1
they all shouted at the top of their :
" i * lNi l lMlt > Ul riWI > M > lll M WWWllW WWa gaMBiWilff > lll UWUMIli
But no one heard them. The water
roared too loudly. So they sat for
hours and hours It seemed to tneni
until the gray light of morning began
to break In the east They strained
their eyes as it grew brighter and look
ed off across the gray flood of water
with Its scattering heaps of wreckage
to the town on the hill.
"I thought. Memphis was a bigger
city than that , " said Polly.
"It Isn't Memphis , " said Fred , with
a little joyful ring in his voice that
made Polly and her grandmother look
around quickly ; "it's Springville. "
"Springville ! "
And Springville lt was. They could
see the little weatherbeaten church on
the hill , and the red-brick schoolhouse ,
and Judge Carson's home , and a great
many other familiar places , although
some of the buildings that had stood
near the river had disappeared.
' 'But haven't we come only four
miles ? " said Grandmother Melton ,
looking greatly surprised.
Half an hour later two boats came
alongside and the castaways were car
ried ashore. On the bank Polly found
herself in the arms of her father , crying -
ing and laughing all at once. Father
Melton looked old and worn and wor
ried. He had given up his family for
lost , and he was bravely helping the
other people in the work of rescue.
After the flood was subsided the
Meltons went down to look over their
home. Father Melton hardly knew ,
what to do , but Polly spoke up quite
"I tell you , father , let's leave it right
here and live in it ; Fred and I won't
have so far to go to school. "
And what do you think ? That is just
what Father Melton did. He straight
ened the house around , built a new
foundation under it , and the Meltons
are living there today , quite happy and
contented. So you see the flood helped
two persons at least Polly and Fred-

Varying Power of X-Rays.
At a recent meeting of the Royal so
ciety in London a description was
given of the change that occurs in the
penetrative power of the X-rays in
proportion as the air is more and more
completely exhausted from the vacuum
tube in which the rays are produced.
At a certain degree of exhaustion the
rays penetrate the flesh and show the
bones of a human hand in shadow.
With a greater exhaustion of air the
• flesh becomes almost perfectly trans
parent , while the bones remain opaque.
With a still higher degree of exhaus
tion the rays begin to penetrate the
bones ; and with the highest vacuum
through which the electric discharge
will- pass , the bones themselves be
come almost as transparent as the
flesh. Similar variations in penetrat
ive power can be produced by increas
ing o - decreasing the power of the
current , or by varying the electrical
resistance of the tube.

fact that the Bermuda Islands have

the Bermuda Islands as a convenient
winter resort , thus imitating some of
their human compatriots. Even some
