Mr. Wright at first appeared nervous,
and III luck seemed to lie pursuing

In the gathering darkness tbe spec

could no longer be seen at tbe farther

multitude, which had now grown fran

Matches were lighted to keep watch
on the fleeting minutes, and night had
fallen when at tbe end of tbe thirty

and came lightly to tho ground In

With a mad cheer tbe crowd broke
through the lines and rushed forward,
only being prevented from hoisting the

Xovlcea In or On tbe Water.
The season has added heavily to tbe
record of drownings, accidents pecul
iarly tragic and distressing, liecause
they are usually met with In search of
health or pleasure under apparently
safe conditions. The mere thought ot
a bath or a swim or a sail Is so cheer
ing that It seems cruel to poison tho
spirits of the venturers with hints -of
danger. And really where millions
hatho and swim and sail less than doz
ens come to grief. Hut, few as the
drowning accidents are compared with
tbe risks, tbo number should be re
duced If not practically eliminated
from the year's records of mishaps.
It Is the custom of many cvisTts In
and on tho water to say that diownlng
accidents generally result from Inex
cusable Ignorance or lieedli-snicss Of
course no one should venture In or

th majority of drowning accidents,
whether th victims are precipitated
from craft or get In too deep while
bathing, are duo to the Inability to
awtm or, rather, to keep afloat. There
should also lie added among the causes
of drowning failure to keep a level
head. Fright contributes to drowning
Unions heavily weljhted a pc-rsjn 1m

avoid strangling. Only a trifling sup
lort Is needed to prevent a person
from sinking If that support is for tho
head. The uonswlmmer should not
struggle to swim, but rather, keep
quiet and float with or without nlds,
such as a Ijoard, paddle or plecu of
furniture. A corked bottle will sink If
pitched lutes tho water, but will riso
again and stay up. It Is much the
same with a live body, provided tho
mouth Is Uept closed. It would be
well for ewry one liable to risks on
the water to learn Is'tonhand how to
act In emergencies. The matter of
swimming, llonttng, sinking and corn
