The boys of the city are taking to the water In large numbers. Every afternoon for the past week or longer the lumbA" wharves have been filled with youngsters enjoying the cool waters of the harbor, ! and on the Eastern branch numbers are also going swimming daily. Washington has some fine swimmers and divers. It is nothing for a bunch of boys to start from the 10th street wharf, swim across the harbor and back without stopping, and a dive of fifteen or twenty feet into the water is not looked upon as any particular feat of daring. "Follow your leader" is the game the boys seem to enjoy most, and woe betide the boy who falls to follow the leader in all his dives and distance swims. He is unmercifully ducked while in the water and guyed when ashore until he redeems himself by performing the feat on which he balked.
