the effects of the exposure resulting
from her singular experience on Dry

"in the dark," afterward finding her
self in flood water. She left Seattle

raging headache. The train was
crowded, and she was unable to get
a berth. She sat up in the chair ear,

hazy recollection of alighting at the
station in Walla Walla, but subse
quent events, until she encountered
the cold waters of Dry creek, are al
most a complete blank to her.
