SAVED THREE MEN FROM DEATH The rescue of three men whose lives were imperiled In St. Marys cataract was the heroic performance of Antolne "Pete" Bonno, a govern ment watchman nt the locks at the Soo. He risked his own life In the act and coupled with his efforts were those of V. L. Tissera of Ceylon, In dla, a guest at the Park hotel and for whom Bonno wns acting as guide. The three men saved from certain death In the cataract had been fishing from a boat held at anchor by a huge stone let down by a rope on the Can adian side near the International bridge. At 10 a. m. the wind began to rise and the fishermen decided to move. Then they realized that with the rising wind and rapid .current they could not easily lift the heavy weight they had employed as an an chor. Suddenly a gust of wind switched the craft and it draged the anchor straight to the cataract The one pair of oars were worse than feeble to re sist the powerful wtream. The 'boat had now fcegun to -pourd on the choppy lossy crest. Two excited men close lip in the aft weighted the boat ' tilt a flood of water rushed over the gun wale. All three were now excited nnd began to call for help. It was evt dent they were powerless to save themselves. Death In the rapids was surely Impending. A little way off In snfe waters an other fishing party had been watching the maneuvers and dangerous posi tion of the three. The oarsman had hauled In his nnchor nnd wns now swifOy and cautiously approachln the apparently doomed rraft It was "Pete" Bonno. Letting the boat slip liflv wards In the stream to a proper position llonno threw a line to the STIFF COURSE FOR GRADUATE I). S.

So Says Mart Adson Regarding Busi , neaa of South Shore. Mart Adson, general passenger agent of the Duluttw Bouth Shore & Atlan tic railroad, who leaves for Mon treal. Boston and New York tonight on a business trip, said this morning" that business on his road thla j'ear is better now than It was at this time last year, and last year was an exceptionally good one. "We certainly have no reason to find anything but satisfaction In the business situation." said Mr. Adson. ''There are no Indications of any pending change that can be harm ful. The traffic is steady, with here and there an exceptional amount of business, but the volume of It all Is somewhat greater than It was a year ago. . My trip east Is to he made because business engagements require It. . I will be away for a week or ten days." Duluth Herald. . ' J fi' !

"Cut your nn chor line," cried Bonno to the three to be rescued. They seemed at first still' reluctant to let go of that an chor. Then Bonno repeated the order In a manner that left no doubt, as to who was in command. "Now row," he j-elled above the noise of the tor rent. And he himself was at the same time bending all efforts to aid the two "oats. The man with the oars behind obeyed with a willingness and with strength and th struggle between; man nnd raging cstaract was on. With Bonno's giant form and braw ny arms bending to the oars in power ful and steady strokes and the man In the boat hhlnd pulling with all the rtrength he could exert, the two boats held their own, but made no headway. The plunging rapids were having crashing effect on the man braced in the' guide's boat holding the line. For fully ten minutes the struggle was even. From the shore many people watched in breathless fesr, and pow erless themselves to lend aid. The strength of the man In the boat being towed seemed to wane. Bonno seem ed to realize the fact. His own boat was smaller that the other, but he now seemed to double his strength. Like a pleeq of perfect and powerful machinery he slowly but surely pull ed out of the rapids and landed the three men on the Canadian shore In safety. They were grateful, offering "Pete" a purse of money which he modestly declined to accept GOGEBIC RANGE FATALITY Hit by ft chunk of ore, which drop ped upon him, Joseph Augustlnory, an Austrian, waa Instantly killed at the Ironton m"lne at Bessemer.
