At aliimt miiuIkwii ono rvcninr, re

inan was i iirrii il u it tlm lulls. Who
In; whs is not known. His ilivss tintl
ai-ipt'iiranm.' iniliiNitcl vi'S unit itl)ility, and
after lio rt into iho nni'nl his self-pos-8ossion
whs extiMoriliiKiry. His boat
was a very good one, decked over tlio
bow. ami 1 slionl l tl; ink would carry
three or four tons. No other than a
person nnaeijuaintod with tlie current
above the rapids would venture so near
(hem. I was on the head of (ionf. Island
when I lirst discovered the boat, then
near half a mile below the foot of Navy
Island, and nearly two miles above the
Falls. There seemed to be two in tlio
boat. It was directed toward the Amer
ican shore the wind was blowing from
the shore, and the sail was still siand
inj. Being well acquainted witii the
river, I regarded tlio position of I ho
boat' as rMraordiimry and hazardous,
and watched it with intense anxiety
Soon 1 discovered the motion of an oar,
and, from tlio changing direction of the
boat, concluded it had but one. While
constantly approaching nearer and near
er the rapids, I could discover it was
gaining tlie American shore, and by the
time that it had got near the first fall
in the rapids, half a mile above (lout
Island, it was direclly above the island.
There it was turned up the river, anil
for some time the wind kept it nearly
stationary. The only hope seemed to
be to come directly to Goat Island, and
whether I should run half a mile to
give the alarm or remain to assist in
case the boat attempted to make the
island, was a question of painful doubt.
But soon the boat was again turned
toward tlio American shore. Then it
was certain that it must go down tho
American rapids. 1 ran for the bridge,
rallied a man at the toll-gate, and we
ran to tho main bridge in time to see
the boat just before it got to tho first
lurgo fall in the rapids. Then I sawono
man he standing at tho stern with his
oar changing tho course of the boat
down the current, and as it plunged
over he sat down. I was astonished to
see tho boat rise, with the mast and sail
standing, and tho mar again erect di
recting the boat toward tho shore. ' As
ho came to the next and to each suc
ceeding fall ho sat down, and thon
would riso and apply his oar in tho
tho intermediate, current. Still there
was hope that ho would como near
enough to tho pier to jump, but in a
moment it was gone. Another, that ho
miglit jumb upon the rock near tho
bridge, but tho current dashed him from
it under tho bridge, breaking tho mast.
Alexin ho rose on the opposite side.
Taking his our, and pointing his boat
toward the main shore, he cried: "Had
I better jump from tho boat?" We
could not answer, for either seemed
certain destruction. Within a few rods
of tho Falls tho bout struck a rock,
turned over and lodged. Ho appeared
to crawl from under it, and swam with
the oar in his hand until ho went over
the precipice. Without the power to
render assistance -for half an hour
watching a strong man struggling with
every nerve for life, yet doomed with
almost tho certainty of destiny to an
immediato ami awful death, still hoping
with every clVort for his deliverance
caused an intensity ofexcitenienl 1 pray
God never again to experience.
Th) Real Worth of the Vacation.
The superior inun is the man who
makes tho best use of bis natural forces;
the inferior perxm is one who u-.es up
bis vitality in the shortest space of time,
This may bo a slow way of approachiii"
a great principle, but it Is perhaus the
inoit sure method of showing tho way
to that conservative ami rational living
which has characterized tlio wises' pe"
plo and those who have used life to the
belt advantage. There is vast power in
keeping an equilibrium of forces. This
is as true of society and persons as it Is
of mechanics and 'natural forces. Tlio
vacation is tho lini'i when nature re
pairs the waste tissues. It kcoius like
Idleness to bo lolling around listlessly
by the Bea shore or at the country farm
or by tlie mountain side, but it is just
that seeming torpor of the faculties, on
tho part of the bruin workers, which
does iuot to recruit wasted energies,
and is tlie best use to which swiftly (loot
ing hour of vacation can bo put. There
is no'.liin like the cMrenio of rest to
balance tin: extremes of strain to which
'bright person nre subjecting them
elves in daily life. It can only be met
In nil of us by such a return to nature
that her thou-aud tiiiniMratioiis to tho
minds and hearts of men may not be
thwarted by our own indiscretion. Tho
ereat thing is to maintain an eouablo
life, to keep the nerves steadv, to bold
ourselves in check, and. if vacation
bo used in such a way that professional
ami business people and Iminv brain
workers can llnd rest for themselves In
July and August, the whole comniuuliv
pains by their renewal of tho chief
forces of life. Thin I what a wisely
used vacation means for thoso who aro
now taking It. It means a mind anil
body in good repair on tho first day of
beptciuber. Doxtvu lkruhl.

A bluff old farmer In Mecklenburg
had a Ron at the university who ran
through more money than his father
liked, whilo at tho same timo neglecting
his studios. Tho latter, on inquiring,
got to hear that his son showod little
aptitude for learning, and docidod to
send him homo. In order to make a far
mer of him. Tho horr student was
highly displeased at this turn of affairs,
ami when his father took him in the
tiold for tho first timo ho gave vent to
his dissatisfaction in a string of Latin
phrases and quotations. After a while
his father said to him: "I say, Augus
tus, here is a pitchfork, and yonder is
tho manure in tho cart what do you
call them in Latiu?" "Forcus, niauuri
bus, oartibus," replied tho son, with
an air of proud satisfaction. "Very
well, then," said the farmer, "if you
don't at onco take tho forcus and un
load tho oartibus of nianuribus, I'll
break every bonibus in your bodybns.

business in tho United States, under
grants from tho Bell Telephone Com
pany, have an aggregate capitalization
of nearly $100,0110,000, which is about
tho aggregate capitalization of tho
Western Union Telegraph Company.
Tho telephone business is growing so
rapidly that it is claimed by those con

the country is fully supplied with in
