Reason is most generally to be found
in their not knowing the Way Out
"Now that the swimming season is fairly under way," said Capt. "Tom"
Riley, the veteran Coney Island life-saver, "it may not be a bad Idea to give
a few pointers to the average bather, that may come in useful to him some
time or other.
"The first piece of advice I would give Is: Don't go far from shore. Swim
ming is one of the hardest exercises in the world, and a man must be well
used to it. No matter whether he is as fit as a fiddle to run a five-mile race
in record time, let him be careful how far he tries to swim.
"Every muscle is used when a man is swimming, many of them that are
never brought Into play in any other way. This is the main reason why so
many fellows get into trouble every year.
"They feel good and strong, and when they get into the water they swim
and swim until they get tired. Then when they try to swim back again
their strength plays out, and if help isn't near by they get rattled. The next
day the newspapers have another account of 'An expert swimmer drowned-'
"Getting rattled is another thing to guard against. Nine times out of ten
this has more to do with people getting into trouble than anything else.
Whatever you do or wherever you are, keep cool keep your nerve. A man
can stay afloat a long time if he won't get rattled, no matter what's the
trouble with him.
"There's a spot just off Norton's Point where you can't make headway
in one direction or the other. If you are caught in there with a boat you
can't pull out, so you can have an idea of what kind of work a swimmer has
cut out of him. There Is only one thing to do, and that is to keep cool and
quiet, and after a while the current will carry you out, but you can't get out
by swimming. That is what we call a 'sea puss.'
"In a race I had once some years ago from the Battery to Coney Island I
got caught in this place. I knew it the minute I reached it, so I didn't try to
swim, but turned over on my back and floated. In the course of a few min
utes I was whirled out, and went on and won my race. Now, an inexpe
rienced swimmer would have got rattled, made big efforts to get out, and
finally have tired himself out and sunk.
"Don't be afraid of cramps is another thing that all swimmers should
remember. There has been so much said and written about cramps that
people arc scared to death when they feel a little cramp coming on in a toe
or hand. Then they lose their nerve altogether and give up, where by being
cool they could have made their way to shore in safety. Lots of the pleas
ure of bathers is taken away by this fear. I won't say that cramps are not
slightly dangerous, but they are never so bad that a swimmer can't take
care of himself. Swimmers with any kind of ability ought to be able to
swim any reasonable distance with any kind of a cramp. The ones who are
not good swimmers should always hug the shore and never take chances.
"Cramps are brought on by swimming. So when you feel one coming
on stop using the leg or arm where it is located. If you turn over on your
back and float a while that will give the cramp a chance to go away, but
even if it doesn't it won't prevent you from swimming slowly and getting
"Most people think a cramp spreads gradually until it goes all over the
body from a little cramp in the toe. This isn't so. It is always confined
to the leg or arm, where it starts. This is proved by the fact that it goes
away when you quit using the leg or arm. I have never yet been in a swim
ming race for a long distance that I haven't had a cramp in a leg or aim. I
got one in my right leg one time so bad that the leg locked at the knee joint
every time that I made a kick. Yet I not only finished the race, but won it.
"Whenever you hear cramp stories some one is sure to mention stomach
cramps. They are supposed to be the most dangerous kind. You hear where
people are doubled up like a jackknife and then sink like a stone. Now, a? a
matter of fact, in all my experience I never had a stomach cramp or saw a
person with one. If they ever happen they have kept out of my sight. And
I don't believe there is such a thing. This is another fairy story that has
been told until everybody believes it. So that when a fellow in swimming
gets a little pain in the stomach he at once imagines he has stomach cramp.,
and that he's a goner, and will at once yell for help or do something foolish.
"Its nearly always the poor swimmer who gets in trouble, for he is the
one to take the greatest chances. Good swimmers always travel in pairs,
so they can aid one another in case of trouble. You often see the head of
one of these poor swimmers bobbing about away off shore, although we try
our best to keep them in, and when one of them gets into trouble he is usu
ally so far out that he is gone before we can get at him." New York Times.

THE PRESIDENT SANGUINE OF HIS ELECTION AND THINKS THAT
IF THE RIGHT MAN IS NAMED FOR GOVERNOR OF NEW YORK
THE ENTIRE REPUBLICAN STATE TICKET WILL BE CARRIED
IN THE COMING ELECTION.
WASHINGTON, D. C, July 20 President Roosevelt is exceedingly san
guine of his election in November, according to friends who have talked with
him in the last few days. The President is confident that the country does
not desire a change in the parties in power at this time, and he sees noth
ing to make him believe that the voters manifest any particular dislike for
him. The President's long experience in New York politics has made him
acquainted with the varying possibilities there, but it is declared that if a
suitable man is nominated by the Republicans for Governor the President
feels that the entire Republican ticket will be carried through In November.
Newspaper stories represent the President as earnestly desiring the nom
ination of ex-Secretary Elihu Root as the Republican candidate for governor,
and some of these stories go so far as to think that the President is look
ing forward to four years from now for Root, believing that if the ex-Sec-vetary
of War is elected governor this year he will be the logical candidate
of the Republicans for President in 1908.
This, however, is probably speculative, as the President would not offend
various Republican leaders who are looking forward to 1904 by apparently
working plans so that Mr. Root would succeed him as President- There arc
many big men among the Republican leaders who arc looking toward
the nomination four years from now, and all of them are personal friends of
the President. Secretary Taft, Senator Knox of Pennsylvania, Speaker
Cannon, Secretary Shaw, who will have the backing of Iowa; Senator Spon
er of Wisconsin, Senator Lodge of Massachusetts and others are In the
ambitious list. Anything that would look like favoritism for Mr. Root
might make some of these men feel unkindly.
The President, realizing the prospects, is most likely to keep his hands off
in the struggle that will precede his retirement from the presidency.
The President's confidence as to his election in November is based upon
information reaching him through the party leaders in all the states. He
has had a number of conferences with most prominent Republicans in the
last few weeks, and all of them think the election Is assured to the Repub
licans without question.
Judge Parker has received a telegram from Muscogee, announcing that
"the Indian Territory Is on fire with nn unconquerable Democratic xeal."
He should promptly tell them not to try to put out the fire, but allow it to
spread to some region that is represented in the electoral college. Vash
