Captain Webb's Fatal Attempt.
Frederick Kyle, Capt. Matthew Webb's manager for three years past, has made a statement respecting Webb's recent at tempt to swim the Whirlpool Rapids. "I do not know," he said, "of anything that has been so grossly misrepresented as this affair of Capt. Webb's. The captain wa$ not foolhardy or rash, as many suppose. All his wonderful exploits were the result of careful study. When he made up his mind to swim the English Channel, be fore attempting the feat he went and lived with the Laplander's nearly a year to study their habits for enduring excessive cold and for hardening the body. All his dives were studiously planned before hand, and he calculated to a degree at what angle he would strike the water. Not one of his many feats, to my knowl edge, were attempted without previous plantinig as to how he was coming out. He has told me that when making his high dives he was thinking all the time he was going down. IIe told me last year that he was going to do something big this year, and subsequently informed me that it was to swim the Niagara. lis object in doing this was simply as an advertise ment to bring his name more prominently before the public, and, as lie thought, help him to earn a larger aalary. We spent a number of days in examining the Niagara River, and the captain went so far as to make a chart of the course that he intend ed to follow. I placed the utmost confi dence in him, and had not the slightest doubt but that he would accomplish the feat. When I parted with him he was confident and cheerful, and he said that he would wait till after it was all over be fore he dived. The last seen of him was while swimming or rather paddling like a dog on the outer edge of the whirlpool; he rose, shook his head, and made one of his peculiar side dives head foremost. I claim that he did accomplish his proposed feat, and if he had not struck against a rock or some hard substance which stunned him he would have come out all right."-E.r n1.mmnd cnunge. His Old Student. A Washington evening paper says: The President related at dinner at the White HIIouse, on Saturday night, an in teresting little episode of his one day's stay at Cape May, He received publicly all who came to pay respects, and, after the public reception was over, was sur prised to have a card presented to him with a message that the sender was very anx ious to see him. He concluded to admit him, and when the door was opened saw a weather-beaten, middle-aged " man, whc grasped him cordially by the hand and in formed him that he "knowed" him aI soon as he "set eyes on him." He then repeated his name to the President, and inquired if he remembered that his visitor bad gone to school to him. The Presidenl then recalled that, during one of his va cations, he had, for the purpose of raising much-needed funds, taken several young fellows of about his own age to impart some "college learning" to, and the man before him was one of them. The former scholar combines the occupation of fisher man and restaurant keeper, and informed the President that he was doing very well, The President expressed his pleasure al the meeting, and the two parted with mu tual expressions of good will and hopes o1 future happiness. The President said he got a grip of the hand which he would not forget for some time to come. A Veteran Soldier. Mr. G. F. Bowles, of No. 24 Common Street, Lynn, Mass., says: "While in the army, at the battle of Spottsylvania, I fell while getting over a rail-fence and was badly injured and left for dead, but aftei a time I was picked up by comrades; and upon examination it was found that my back was badly hurt and my kidneys seri ously injured, and I have suffered the wgost excruciating pain since, and could obtain no relief although treated by sev eral physicians, and I had given up all hope of getting help when I was recom mended to use Hunt's Remedy. I pur chased several bottles at one of our drug stores in Lynn, and began to use it as di rected, and can now attend to business and am free from the pains I formerly had and 1 wish to say to my friends and com rades that Hunt's Remedy will do all thal is claimed for it, and worthy of all praise. You can use my testimony when you have occasion to, as I most heartily recommend it to all that have kidney or liver troubles.' April 26, 1883. aul2-1w LIST OP LETTERS.

NEW YORK, 1883. More people have read The aun during the yea just now passing than ever before since it was firs printed. No other newspaper published on thi side of the earth has been bought and Iread in an: year by so many men and women. We are credibly informed that people buy, read and like The Sun for the following reasons, amonj others: Because its new columns present in attractiv form and with the greatest possible accurac whatever has interest for humankind; the events the deeds and misdeeds, the wisdom, the philoso phy, the notable folly, the solid sense, the improv ing nonsense-all the news of the busiest world a present revolving in space. Because people have learned that in its remark concerning perso, s and affairs The Sun makes practice of telling them the exact truth to the bes of its ability three hundred and sixty-five days i the year,before election as well as after, abouhth whales as well as about tho small fish, in the fac of dissent asplainl) and fearlessly as wnen sup ported by general approval The Sun has abea lutely no purposes o serve, save the Information of its readers and the furtherance of the commoe good. Because in politics it has fought for a dozae years, without intermission and sometimes almos alone among newspapers. the. fight that has re suited in the recent overwhelming popular vex diet against Robesonism and for honest govern t ent. No matter what party is in power, TA Bun standand will continue to stand like a ros for the interests of the people against the ambitlo of bosses, the enroachments of monopolists, and th dishonest schemes of public robbers. All this is whal we are told almost daily by on friends. One man holds that The Sun is the bei religious newspaper ever published, because ii Christianity is undiluted with cant. Anothe holds that it isthe best Republican newspape printed, because it has already whipped half of th rascals out of that party, and is proceeding agaiu. the other half with undiminished vigor. A thir believes it to be the best magazine of general litex ature in existence,because its readers miss nott ng worthy of notice that is current in the world ( hought. So every friend of The Bun discover one ofitsmanysides that appeals with particuae force to his individual liking.* If yoau already know The BSus, youwll obsera that In 1888 it is a little better than ever befoare. you do not already know The Ssn, you will find 1 to be a mirrorof ll human activity, a storehous of the choicest products ofeommonsesse and ihs aginatioe, a matnstay for the ca.se ofhonest go. ernment, a se*ntina for genuine JeeallanDeZ).ay cracy, a scourge for wickedness of every speele and an unenommonly good investmentfor the eome ingyear.
