Tie barrvl in which Mrs. Taylor ac ct'inplished tie feut was alKiut six feet long. AttacLed to the bottom were ieavy weight to hold it upright. With it tie barrel were straps, attached to tie bottom, wiiuh were placed over tie woniat's shoulders to prevent her i-ad from bumpiric against tie top. Over her bead, during the trip, was a pillow for farther protection. Cm tie memorable dcy Mrs. Taylor and her barrel were rowed into the np jt rtver and set adrift in a current that rapidly bore her toward the rap ids.

A little to the Cana dian side of the center of the falls the barrel took its plunge and dropped, clouded In mist, to the lower river, a distance of 15S feet. Whiie the desperate plunge was being taken thousands of spectators held their breath in anxiety and suspense, everyone believing that the fall would be fatal and that another would be added to the long list of the victims of Niagara. Two minutes after the plung ing barrel had been lost in the mist of the tremendous cataract it appeared In the seething white water below the falls. It gradually was carried bv the current to the Canadian side and was hauled ashore. The top was hastilv sawed off and Mrs. Taylor was taken out. She had suffered a contusion on the right side of the bead and had re ceived numerous bruises on the body Her nervous system had suffered a sei vere shock and since then she has been afflicted with severe headaches. Ex actly fifty minutes had elapsed from the time she was sent adrift until she was released from the barrel. When she reached ber hotel she broke down and wept. When she was rescued the barrel was one-third filled with water.

REVOLVER WOUNDS More Iiacetroot, for Variosm Keaes than Tbose of the It.fl. Wounds in civil life d.ffer from these in military life in tbe greater after danger of septic involvment. Revolver cartridges are more liable than ire rifle cartridges to have been handled frequently, to have been carried In dir ty pockets aud to have come In contact with various forms of infectious mate rials tiat may prove of serious conse quence when buried In the tisanes. Moreover, revolver cartridges are cov ered with a coating of grease, and this encourages an accumulation of mani fold microbie material, some of which may prove to be of a virulently infec tious nature. Rifle bullets are practically always sterilized by the intense heat develop ed by the powder at tbe moment o( their discharge. Their rapid progress through tie air while in a heated con dition still further serves to cleanse them of any extraneous material that may chance to have accumulated od their surfaces. This cleansing process is very effectually liegun by the rifling, uf the rifle barrel through which th-f bullet forces its wav. ( All of these favorable factors txef f 1 lacking In the case of the revolver bnl let, and so it is possible that in anj? given ease such a bullet may carry ln fectious material with It Into tbe tW' sus.

On th other hand, such infectious materu? might lie seemingly dormant for dajsi but really slowly gathering strength b multiplication, and when Its toxics. were elaborated In sufficient anionic audi they might paralyze protective chemq taxis and produce a septic condition.-! rme New York Medical News.
