It was very foolish of me to have wagered that I would go over Niagara Falls in a barrel. I can see that now, but at the tlime I was obsessed with my determinatlon to win the wager. I remenhtmber every detail of the start perfectly. The banks were crowded with spectntors. There was an aero bus flying to and fro overhead; and what worried me most was the roar of the water, and my principal's pet sistent Injunctions to "keep still." "Keep still?" I was shivering with fear, and trying to put a bold face on it, but I was crtajlnly still enough as be strapped me into the barrrel to prevent my rolling. Odd how I recall that barrel. It had a seat in it, with a soft plush bot tom, but it was so small that my head was most uncomfortably strained back. My principal had put some sort of gag in my mouth, because he said that there was danger of my biting my tongue. I supposed the truth to be that hbe was nervous. I can't blame him for that. It was the most foolhardy thing that had ever been attempted. The spectators were absolutely silent as I was pitched into the water over the falls. The lid of the barrel had been clamped on, and I was In pitch dark ness. There was a musty smell in my nostrils, and, rather curiously, the sen sation was at first one of exhilaration, as if I were flying rather than coa signing myself to the turbulent, racing waters. "He's off!" I heard those words distinctly, as it every one of the spec tators lining the shores had shouted in unison. I heard their cheers come through my barrel. Then I was borne away upon the rushing river. I confess that then, for the first time, I fully realized the foolhardy nature of the job that I had under taken. It was simply suicide. No man could go over that cataract of boiling water and live. I resigned my self to death. I wanted to die in a less constrained position. That was my principal thought. I tried to free my head, but I had been strapped as tightly as If in a vise. I could only wait. The roaring of the stream grew louder. The waves buffeted me about from one side to the other. And ever the stream grew swifter. Round and round I revolved, dizzy, half-stupefied, and still more rapidly I sped toward the brink. Now I heard the furious thunder of the cataract. I seemed to be poised for an instant upon the edge of it. Then-I was tumbling, tumbling into oblivion. But that terrific fall seemed to last a thousand years. Down I plunged, down, down, toward a bottomless depot that always receded as I ap proached it. The roar of water about me was like thunder. I tried to scream, but my voice was as Inaudible as that of a flittermouse in that shouting of the elements. I reached the bottom. Faintly my swimming senses told me that I had survived the fall-but only to perish in the whirlpool beneath. For now the barrel in which I was confined was spinning round and round with incon ceivable velocity, and I spun with it like a teetotum. My brain seemed about to burst from its containing skull. My eyes were protruding from their sockets. And now again the distant shouts I of the spectators reached my ears aad seemed to blend into a single phrase: "It's all over I" It seemed all over. The top burst from the barrel. Daylight streamed in, smothered by tons of boiling water Sthat filled the barrel in an instant. It sank like stone. I flung out my arma, Sgripping at empty air. I gasped, took in a deep langtful of atir as my had went under. r This was the end. My starlang eye looked up through a million tons of Swater. The pressure was terrific. I was no longer in the barrel, but, Strainling back, struggled in a dimly conscious way to reach the surface. My face struck a biack rock, and It Sseemed that all my teeth were shabt I tered agalinst the jawbone. One last i eort-one hopeless fight for life. I * threw my arms forward with all my strength-and reached the surface. "Onch!" said a voice beside me. I opened my eyes again. The scenem * was now strangely familiar, and yet a utterly different. Slowly the four Swalls of a room disclosed themselves I- to my gaze. 5 "Ouch I" said a voice again.
