L![AIH III RIVER Bpangler, HulatMmp and Halbeck Have Thrilling Experience When Boat Drifts Near Spillway. TWO WEAR LIFE BELTS Bpangler, Who Can't 8w»m, Lost His, ..... But la Washed up on a Big Rook- 1 Ira B. Spangler, Charles A. lbeck and J. Will Hulskamp had a miracu lous escape from death yesterday when Huiskamp's boat drifted with a dead engine Into the water flowing over the spillway in the cross wall wetween the lock and power house. The boat was below the wall and was carried Into the water rushing over the thirty foot spillway. Huls kamp and Halbeck both wore life pre servers, and swam out near the lock, but Spangler, who cannot swim a stroke, lost his life preserver but was miraculously carried onto a rock which kept his head out of water un til he was rescued. The accident yesterday 'occurred at the same spot where the Chandler brothers lost their lives last spring. A queer thing happened to C. A. Halbeck, who was in the stern of the boat and evidently was whisked along the bottom of the river as the force of the fall smashed the boat un der the water.

The force with which an object is shot along the floor of the river after it has been struck by the waterfall from the spillway is thought to- be the reason for this stripping of his pockets. According to the story told by Mr. Halbeck, the boat was anchored below Ihe cross wall which Joins the lock and power house. The engine was dead, and an anchor was put out. A little later the anchor was pulled up and Mr. Halbeck said that he noticed the boat drifting, and that it Was drifting toward the'wall.

Coffee contains caffeine, a subtle, poisonous drug, and its use as a daily routine beverage causes more or less disturbance of nerves, heart, stomach, liver or some other organ.

Try this easy test—quit coffee 10 days and try POSTUM.

He was carried down In the water to where the excavations have been made, and the current threw him on to a big rock on which he was able to stick and keep his head out of water until rescued by Messrs.

He said Spangler was busy at his en gine, trying to start It J.&-X* Nothing to Anchor to. The spot at which the Hulskamp boat was laying Is one where the bed of the river was well smoothed off, and there is hardly any spot for an anchor to catch. It is said that unless there should be a stray "nigger head" rock for it to catch on to, there would be nothing to hold an anchor. This and the proximity of the dangerous waterfall coming over a spill-way as high as the dam, makes the particular spot a very dangerous one for a boat which Is dead. With engines running or with a pair of oars a boat can easily be kept away from the spillway water, but dead boats can do nothing but drift with the current. The water which comes over the spillway comes down with a terrific force. The spillway was built to let the drift out of the forebay, and the height is almost as much as that of the dam. The water comes down over the spillway and shoots along the bot tom of the river, where it is smooth for considerable distance, and then the current to complete the cycle, sends the water back toward the spillway again, Borne on Upper Current. This upper current was the one into which the boat drifted, and was borne Into the teeth of the waterfall over the spillway. It evidently drift ed stern first, and the waterfall struck the craft and pounded It into the for a time, but the,coffee drug, caffeine (about pains of any kind in Postum.

Halbeck being in the stern of the craft when It struck the water fall, probably was shot along the bed of the river like a skyrocket and then came up as soon as smooth water was reached.

It was not damaged to any great'extent. 1 HAVE RETURNED FROM FAR EAST Four Battleships Reach United States After Cruise of the Med Iterranean Sea. (.United IPfess Leased Wire Service.] NEW YORK, Dec.
