FREAKS Of TIDES
AND LIFE IN
A letter received from J. D. Jef
ferson on a recent boat gives some
interesting facts about the recent high
tide which struck Prince William
Sound. Mr. Jefferson, who was fprm
erly engaged in running a fox ranch at
Bald Head Chris island, and has pro
mised our readers some interesting ar
ticles on fox farming in the near fu
ture. Following is the letter printed
in the Valdez Prospector.
"I never realized until the other day
when the tide was so high what the
term 'drifting with the tide’ really
meant, and it was some tide, 22 feet 3
inches from extreme high tide to ex
treme low, washed three of the lower
front steps out leading up to the house
from the water's edge (left five, but
will have to take them down to make
a good job of it), it came with such
a rush and roar that the island was
singing incessantly, and the drift that
came in did some of the most uncanny
things. For instance, about a month
ago I cut a log in two on the easterly
side of the island. It was too heavy
to handle as one log, and started to
tow the two in, one roped behind the
other.. In coming around the point I
met a choppy sea and the line between
the logs parted. I came on in with
the one log, going back for the other
in about half an hour. I could not
find it, although I rowed clear around
the island, and since that time I have
kept looking for that log, not for the
great value, but I felt peeved that I
should lose it in the way that I did.
Well, at the high tide here came that
log drifting in, and from the wrong
way, or opposite direction from where
I left it. Another log that I had thought
of bringing in when I got to it, came
drifting in. Just then I was too busy
to tie it up, thinking, well it is safe
and I'll get it later on. It didn't «top,
but just made a tour of the lagoon,
then went out a is now within 20 '
feet of where i* /as before It started
on its journey, Tt is so high up now
that it will be a long time before an
other tide is high enough to float it.
I have four little friends that are
pretty regular to their meals, two jay.
birds and two magpies. How they
talk and scold if there is any delay.
The magpies are getting a little fresn
though, for they want to come in and I
help get the dinner, and I never did
like to be watched when I was trying
to cook”

NEW YORK, Nov. 2. — Returning

Richard Harding Davis and the dan
cer. It is to make life smooth for
Hope that Bessie McCoy, the Yama
Yama Girl is returning to Broadway.
“Bessie McCoy is not going back on
the stage,” said Mrs. Davis. “It Is
Bessie McCoy Davis — a totally dif
ferent person, who will appear under
her own name, Bessie McCoy Davis.
No one could be with Richard Harding
Davis five minutes without becoming
a better human being, and I had the
luck to have him for five years. I
know people who will see me dance
will say, ‘I wonder where she has kept
poor little Hope.' So I want to say
I to them now, little Hope will be safe
| ly tucked away in her bed. She will
have a bath given to her by her own .
mother and will have eaten a supper I
which her (twn mother cooked.
"Mr. Davis used to say to me, "I
lon't see why Hope has a nurse. Bes
sie, you do everythin* for her your
self.” And so I do. And I shall keep
sn giving her her bath every night and j
morning and mashing up her vege- j
tables and straining them and fixing
her beef juice — oh. I shnu't neglect
the greatest business in the world
lust because I am going back on the
stage.
“I am really going to be' two per
sons — a sort of Jekyll-Hyde of the
theatre. I’ll put all the fire and move
ment that are In me Into my dances
and then I'll hack to the apartment
on Riverside Drive and One Hundred
and Ninth street end HI turn the key
and be just a liresome little mother
who has gfttten back to the center of
her life—Hope Harding Davis.
