THE LIMIT OF FOOLHARDINESS

the answer to such a question probably
would be no. It seems Improbable to think
that a small boat that must depend for
safety upon remaining upright on Its keel
can do what doiens of daredevil swimmers
have failed to do In barrels. Yet that Is
what the power boat enthusiasts of the
country propone to do next September. Not
only is It proued to navigate the fearful
whirlpool and rapldi below the falls, but
u regular motor boat race, with something
ova- twenty-five entries, and with a solid!'' it what constitutes

will start downstream, and with engines
running at full speed will dash down
through the upper rapids, through the
"Giant Wave," and into the fatal Whirl
pool basin and through the gorge, where
so many daring navigators and swimmers
have paid for their daring with their lives.
Such boats as survive the battle with the
whirlpool will go on to the lower rapids,
and those that remain after this will race
It out on the smooth waters below.
The winner will gain gold and fame for
himself and his craft, but the haxards of
the race are to severe that the winner will
"earn all that he gets," while the unlucky
ones well, those who are unlucky, In Ni
agara's whirlpool are most unlucky, Indeed.
In spite of this, however, in spite of the
fact that the deadly reputation of the
whirlpool Is known all over the world,
entries are pouring In for this weird race
from all over the country. As soon as the
subject was broached In motor boat cir
cles, dosens of men rose up and offered
to back with their own lives their belief
that they could go through the rapids in
their particular kind of boat. The fact that
a tew men and women had made the Jour
ney In barrels seemed to encourage them
In the belief that where a barrel could go
their boats could follow aafely. The fact
that dosens have lost their llvts lit the
attempts where only a few were successful
failed to deter them. Their confidence

most powerful and up-to-date boat will
have a chance to go through safely, and
It is probable that these only will ba al

The problem of . whether the Niagara

RESCUE STATIONS FOR MINERS

Pennsylvania produces practically all the
anthracite In the country and nearly half
tho bituminous coal. The next legislature
will have no more Important duty than to
provide for "rescue stations" In the mining
These were first heard of by the Ameri
can public when the federal rescue station
sent a rescue psrty to the terrible acci
dent of November in Illinois. A rescue sta
tion haa oxygen apparatua. oxygen helmets
and trained men who. after an explosion
comes, can descend into a mine for rescue,
where no on else can venture.
The Kngliah royal commission on mines,
appointed In 1 in 1907 made a special
report on this subject and urged a rescue
station at every group of mines, Tbrss
central station have been started and thir
leun are being organized for the hard coal
of South Wales. In addition, each mine is
to have Its trained force.
In Germany, which raises only a third an
much coal a the United States, 690 sets of
life saving apparatus, oxygen helmets, etc.,
were provided by 1908 In the Dortmund dis
trict, and 673 In the Breslau district. Each
German miner who Is killed costs a minu
a certain sum, whatever the cause of death,
as long as It come In the course of work.
The German government now requires two
respiratory apparatuses to be on hand at
every separate mine. France requires these
oxygen helmets for any mine with 100 or 200
men, and an additional helmet for every 2o
more miners. Belgium and Holland have
taken like steps. ,
The United Stales geological survey,
which has taken this up, puts the cost
of apparatus at $2,264, and the building and
fillings at $4,000 more, it la plain that this
state-, which raises nearly as much coal as
all continental Europe, ahould require the
rescue stations, which all European coun
tries now require, at each coal mine. Phlla
