PERILS OF DIVERS.
How a Tacoma Diver Met an Untimely
Further details of the death of Diver
William Baldwin, in his attempt to
make a second visit to the cofiinship
Andelana, under 190 feet of water in
Tacoma harbor, state that " his last
words to the members of the wrecking
company when he put on his helmet
at 11:39 a. m., on Thursday, were:
"I'll either take a ride across the river
Styx with old Charon as pilot, or this
line will be passed through the main
hatch of the Andelana today." Eleven
minutes afterwards he was on his jour
ney across the Styx.
Baldwin wore but the light armor,
with which he worked on the Umatil
la wreck at Victoria, and in search for
the Northern Pacific safe and the bod
ies of those left in the landslide of sev
eral years ago.
As the glass face-plate was being
brought to be screwed on the face, he
made some remarks about the air, and
also gave instructions regarding the
third cylinder in the air pump. In the
prior descent this cylinder had caused
much trouble. Baldwin undertook to
remedy the defect, and secured an old,
worn gasket which he placed on the
Baldwin had descended about 150
feet when suddenly there came a hiss
of escaping air from the pump. As fast
as man's arms and muscles could haul
on that life line, the diver was brought
to the top, and the bolts which fasten
the helmet to the diving-suit loosened.
Had but a minute more of time elapsed
the surgeons . would have been forced
to have cut away the flesh from about
the throat and jaws that the skull
might be released from the helmet.
His body and limbs, from the feet to
where the neck joins the trunk, were
normal, but his head was swollen to
three times its size, and was as black
as ink. Victoria Colonist.

BICYCLES VS. CARS.
Don't pay 10-cent car fares; it is
much cheaper to ride a Sterling Bi
cycle. The average person rides four
times daily; at 10 cents a ride this
amounts in a week to $2.40, or $12 per
month. The Pacific Cycle & Mfg. Co.,
on Fort street, will sell you the highest-grade
Sterling Bicycle ever manu
factured for $60, on small weekly or
After you have once experienced the
pleasure and advantages of cycling,
you will not want to ride on tramcars
at even 2-cent fare.
The rocky road to Dublin, or any
other place will not annoy you when
you are equipped with a built-like-a-watch
Sterling Bicycle. They will
stand more rough usage, while looking
graceful and riding easy, of any wheel
made. Their construction is perfect,
and they are light, strong and speedy
and built like a watch.
Down under the highly polished
enamel and glittering nickel is the
real bicycle; the thing you're paying
your good money for, and on the
strength of which may depend your
life. Are you going to buy a bicycle of
known reputation of a kind that has
never been known to "fall down" un
der any ordinary accident or will you
take your life in youir hands and ride
recklessly to no one knows what, on a
wheel that is without a reputation, just
because its first cost is n few dollars
