Charles G. Stephens of :Brlstol, Eng

over the 'llorseshoe falls in a barrel.
The cask in which he made the tri)

staves and bound with steel hoops

Bobby teacl, who went over tihe
llorseshoe falls in 1911. told Stephens
before he started that his trip woup,
he a failure. Leachii predicted that the
harrel would not withstand the dro:'
of I.1 feet, but Stephen refused to
be dissuaded from i the venture.
Few knew t hat Stephens was to
make the trip today and when the
barrel iwas towed out into the river
on the Canadian side two miles above
tile falls there were only a dozeni on
hand to watch. It was 8: 10i a. m.
w hen 'tephens was east adrift. Early
sightseers on G1oat Island saw the
barrel bobbing il) and down In the
tumbligil reaches of the uipper rapids,
but none knew that it carried a man
about to defy tile cataracf.
Melebers of Stephens' party fol
lowed the (nsk down stream in ai
tomobiles. In one of lhe.cars a mov
Ing picture operator filmed the pro
gress of the biarrel. As the barrel
drew near the brin1i of the falls, It
seemed to stand on end, hesilate a
sceond or tTo and then slided grace
fully over the 'slopi', head foremost
aid at a sligth angle. Its gleaming
black and white stripes could be seen
until it had fallen about half way
down the face of the cataract then it
wast lost to view in the misty spray.
-A quarter of an hour passed, then
a half hour and an hour. Field glass
es trained on the boiling waters at the
base of the cataract revealed no sign
of the cask. When the hour had
passed. the old river men In the lit

their heads Ip*lblously.
