Of acci( etits at KiaKm some very
strange 01 es are recorded. One lady
stoopetl for a cup of water, lost her bal

falls almost before her amazed hnsband
knew what happened.
Another ady stooped to pick a flower on
the brink f the Table Hock. She was
taken up dd from the rocks below.
Perhaps t he most dramatic accident was
the follow ng: A playful young man
camght up a charming child who was
watching ihe tumbling waves. "Now,
IJzzie, I an going to throw you into the
water," he iid, and swung her back and
She sere; tned, struggled and slipped

He was ol I and weak, ami while his posi

(ruble appeared with a wil of rape, One
end he left in trusty hands, and with the
other he pin lgi-d into the lioiiiiic title.
When he reached the poor painter Hie

knife with .vhieh he was working. He
shifted the knife to his pocket, tied the
painter to ti e rope, and they reached the
In another case a boatman was crossing
the river abive the falls, when a fog sud
denly came n. He lost his Ix-arings, and
knew he was drifting te death.
His cries nlarmed the village, and bells
were rung 1 r him to run loward them.
Then an oar broke. His only hope then
lay in a paltty little anchor and a common

heart beat each time it failed to catch a
grip. At last it caught and brought the
boat up standing, while the tense string
throbbed like the ban gut of a harp as the
water rushed by it.
For the rroment it held. How soon
would it par ? He shrank from feeling
along the sttands. He was more afraid
not to. lest m should read his fate in the

said, without a heart like lead and hands

In unnthcrtasc the danger to life, though
considerable, was not imminent. A tug

it was sought to make way up stream.

a time it seem -d as if he would not let go

in a few seconds another, and then the tug

An escape o! another sort was that of a

His hands juickly blistered, and then
