ROSTER OF NIAGARA LUNATICS

Haplda for Notoriety
Hrrken.
The rapids below Niagara Falls, where
the whole enormous river rushes at ap
palling speed through a steep, narrow,
cliff-bound gorge, seem to possess an ex
traordinary fascination for a certain class
of fools.
The latest Niagara lunatlo Is a person
who has rone through the raulds In a

vhlle on the fourth. In the dlreotlon of his
arty, was half a mile of broken ground
.ut up by deep, narrow ravines. It took
ut a moment to decide his line of action.
uttlng spurs to his horse he turned to
he only loophole of escape, and; to the
urprlss of the Indians, want leaping over
he ravines, one aflor the other, at the
Isk of his life, but with tho assurance that
hey could not follow him, as none of their
onles were equal to the work. And to
.eep up the pursuit they were obliged to
nake a long detour.
Front and ftvar Attack.
Having once got clear of the broken
-round, Hchuyler, looking back, found
.lmself well ahead, and was congratulating;
lmself on so easy an esoape, when he
aw directly before him, springing out of
he grass, a formidable array of Indians
ntarceptlng his flight. Those pursuing in
:he rear closed up and almost before he
ould realise the situation, he found him
lelf again entrapped, this time by a line
jf Indians that entirely encircled hint,
lumbering about 100 as nearly as he could
udge. They rapidly narrowed the limits
f the circle and began taunting him with
ill manner of Insults and telling him of the
orturea that awaited him, and of the
low roasting that they proposed to give
ilm. For several minutes he sat on his
torse trying to reconcile himself to the
certainty that death was before him, but
.vhen the first struggle was over all
irembllng oeased. and with as true aim as
v'ver huntsman leveled at a reindeer, he
threw up his rifle and fired at the nearest
nan, killing him instantly. Earlier In the
lght he had realised that he was more
Ightly armed than usual, having that
moratntf left his belt with ay brace of pin
ole and a box of cartridges In oamp to
oleaned, taking his Winchester carbine,
arrylng only twelve shots. He now de
termined to sell his life as dearly as pos
sible, and counting every shot, to be sure
.hat he saved one for himself as a dernier
.esort In case of capture, since death by
ills own hands was preferable to slow tor
lure. Twice more he shot In quick suo
esslon, without fatal effect, when he sud
denly put spurs to his horse and dashed
through their lines.
In Close Qiartsri,
At this moment there was a general
tcramblo and rush for htm, some trying
.or him with their spears, others soiling
ils legs and trying to unhorse him. He
siiooeeded In the twinkling of an eye In
throwing them off, and even killed a sec
nd man riding at his side putting his arm
against his (the Indian's) body and biasing
am ay. The blood sported over Howard's
!uckskln laggings, saddle and horse. The
.nstant he freed himself from them and
;ot clear alone, on open ground ahead of
them, where they were not In danger of
UlUIng eaoh other In shooting at him they
'lred a volley of bullets and arrows at him.
Nina of them hit him and up to this mo
ment he was entirely unharmed. Had his
harue been equally fortunate this would
have ended the fight, as the horse was a
fine high-spirited Animal, superior to any
of the Indian ponies. But the first shot
teoelved at the beginning of the hostilities
had cut a small arlery, and from this the
blood was pumping out a steady stream,
that, together wtih his violent exertions,
' was fast supping his strength. The Indians,
wing this, were encouraged to continue
' the pursuit, and their leader, mounted on
in American stage horse (stolen the day
before at a stage station a few miles back,
which they had burned, murdering all the
inmates), succeeded so well tn keeping pace
with him that he could almost feel the
breath from the nostrils of his pursuer's
horse.
Brave Rat Foolish Bark.
Thus they rode, nose to tall, for a mile
or two, the Indian occupying the time In
' shooting. Three pistols, six-shooters, he
emptied, and bullets flew all around Schuy-
. ler on every side. Four more entered the
poor horse, already so badly wounaea;
battered boat and Its badly injured occu
pant Into a calm pool, from whlon It was
possible to rescue him.
For the last forty years we have had
a succession of similarly foolhardy fiats,
only one of which had the slightest Justi
fication. About the year ltW a small
steamboat was launched on the compar
atively quiet pool at the foot of the falls
to take visitors out to see the falls from
below.
The business did not pay, and, in 1861,
the owner of the Maid of the Mist as
it was . called, decided to sell It. He
had an offer from a man down the river
at Lewlston, but, in order to deliver It
he had to take it down through the
whirlpool rapids.
A huge crowd gathored to watch the
trip. The little vessel flashed Into the
whirlpool, and was absolutely lost to view
anna the huge waves. Krveryone thought
that It was gone. But It emerged again
shooting out so that half Its keel was
exposed to view, and fled down the tor
rent at incredible speed.
To make a long Journey short, it did get
through, battered but sound. Joel Rob
inson, who commanded It, never recov
ered from his awful experlenoe. Within
a few weeks his hair went white, and
ho died about three years later.
wxteen years later In ls77 a man
named Charles Percy went throusi the
rapids in a specially-constructed lifeboat.
The boat was solidly decked. a"d below
were two air chambers. In one of which,
carefully padded, Percy lay.
He accomplished the trip aafslv, and
aoon afterwards made a wager with an-
iuuu inieg r laca lor a race
through the whirlpool rapids, the stakes
to be loot) a side.
Flack apparently was a bigger fool than
Percy, for he braved the terrors of the
passage In a boat partly built of cork, but
with no pads or air-chambers. In this he
set out for a trial trip on July 4, 1878.
Before he even reached the famous whirl
pool a wave upuet hla boat, and It went
Into the caldron bottom up. An hour later
it was picked up some miles below, and
Flack's body was found still strapped to

This put an end to the boat craze, but

KANSAS CITY. Nov. 19 Charles Nnael,
secretary of commerce and labor, wss the
j principal speaker at the sixteenth annual
John Jay dinner given by the Commercial
club here last night. "Fore jm Commerce"
wns hli subject. About 70 gruests were
present.
Other speakers were John M. Moss of
Milwaukee, who spoke on "Business
Kthlcs," and Governor John F. Shafroth
of Colorado whose suhjeet was "The West."
Governor J. Y. Sanger of Louisiana, sent
his regrets.
Active and rational co-nneratlon between
the national and state authorities Is abso
lutely essential to a successful solution of
the common problems with which they
both are confronted. This was the opinion
expressed tonight by Charles Nagel. secre
tary of commerce and labor. In an address
delivered at the sixteenth annual banquet
of the Kansas City Commercial olub.
He declared himself a believer In both
state and national authority, saying that
he "read the constitution to mean that the
Integrity of both was guaranteed."
In the practical affairs of life, however,
be asserted "substantially no one adheres
to the old doctrine" of restricted power of
the national government.
Old Restrictions Swept Away.
"The old restrictions upon federal author
ity and federal appropriations have been
swept away," he snld. "Generally In all
directions the old barrier has been broken
down and it is admitted in practice, If not
In platform, that national authority Is abso
lutely essential to meet national problems
as they now present themselves. If this
Is true at home, with respect to domestlo
affairs, it is infinitely more true with re
spect to foreign affairs."
Mr. Nagel dealt In his speech with the
question of relation between national and
state, authority, particularly as It pertained
to commerce. As to foreign commerce he
declared that It was "absolutely safe to
say that only one authority can be con
sulted and that Is the national power."
As to domestic commerce he said:
"So far we have practically no commer
cial corporations that base their authority
upon anything but state authority. The In
convenience of that system, even In our
Interstate commerce, has been sufficiently
demonstrated. 1 am persuaded, for one,
that the conflicts, the Inconsistencies and
the embarrassments with respect to Inter
state commerce alone are enough to call
for the organization of corporations under
federal charters.
"I am not oblivious to the fact," he added,
that If the national government does au
thorize the organization of commercial'1
companies to be employed In foreign busi
ness, these same organizations may, and
perhaps must by degrees, engage In domes
tic commerce as well. On the contrary, 1
believe this to be an Inevitable result of
the first step. But there la no cause for
alarm."
He said It would only be a repetition of ,
the story of the national bank, "heralded
at one time a the enemy of the state,"
but which has become a "business men's
bank, enjoying the confidence of every
village and town," although tn theory the
fiscal agent of the national government.
Commerce Too Bis for States.
"Commerce In the United States," he
said, "Is not measured by state boundaries
and cannot be successfully controlled by
state authority. Interstate commerce and
trafflu have outgrown the state In every
respect, and the ills from which we have
suffered In the past, insofar as they have
been met, were relieved by the Interposi
tion of national authority."
The secretary declared there is pressing
necessity for the development of foreign
commerce and that "we are proceeding, as
It were, oblivious to it
"We speak of the tariff," he continued,
"as though It concerned only the cost to
the consumer at home; and yet we have
entered the International arena; we hase
entered It politically and we must main
tain It commercially. Notwithstanding all
the campaign controversy the free list has
now been Increased. If that be the policy,
we must of necessity make corresponding
Inroads Into foreign territory with our
product."
This country, he said, was not putting
forth anywhere near the energy being ex
pended by foreign countries In their ef
forts to gain foreign trade. The one
bureau In this country's government,
which Is charged with the promotion of
domestic and foreign commerce, he added
"employs a foreign country In one state
of the United States."
There also is need, he said, for the
United States to have Its own merchant
marine. Furthermore, this "should be
amenable to the same authority which Is
engaged In the promotion of the general
system."
Moss Makes Address.
"The day Is not far distant when In
dustrialism will dedicate not only Its money,
Us buslneus genius to society; when It will
have its honor roll of men who will gladly
concentrate their business talent to the
promotion of ethical Ideals, and who, in
the hour of moral stress and confusion will
utter the Illuminating word and organize
ethical endeavor within the very grime and
sweat of business Itself."
This was the declaration of John 11.
Moss, former president of the Merchants
and Manufacturers' association of Mil
waukee in responding to the toast "Busi
ness Ethics."
Social and moral Impulses of men are
being felt more In the business life of
today than ever before In the history of
American business Ufa, he asserted.
Fairness In commercial life, honesty in
dealing with the customer and a con-
kUtent attempt toward the elevation of
business morals, are being manifested by
the organization of commercial clubs and
similar organizations not only throughout
this country, but throughout the entire
world, he said.
The average merchant he explained is
honest, as is demonstrated by the credit
buslnefes of the day.

George von L,. Meyer, the secretary of the

ended, "was persuaded one day In Phila

WASHINGTON, Nov. 19-Henry M.

who has been seriously 111 for several days,
showed no Improvement today. It was
said there had been no dlmlnutatlnn In
the gravity of the case In the last twenty
four hours.
Of the discovery of drugs and narcotics,
their use and misuse, and of the constant
tendency of the medical profession to dis
card them when posslhle. lr. Woods
Hutchinson writes In the November num
ber of Hampton's Magazine. Under the
title of "The Parsing of nils and Pow
ders," the doctor describes the, gradual
awakening of the physicians to the fact
that drugs and potions were not Indis
pensable to recovery that fevers ran a
fairly definite course and stopped of thrlr
own accord that the majority of diseases
tended toward ultimate recovery. Loss
and less violent methods of treatment
were adopted, vomitings and purging and
bleedings became less universal, and the
habit grew up of depending more upon
diet, bathing and rest, putting the patients
to bed and using drugs simply to keep
them comfortable and assist the bodv in
Its fight.
"Finally." says rr. Hutchinson, "and it
seems incredible that it was only about
sixty years as-o, we reached the point where
we dared to let a few moderate cases of
typhoid fever or pneumonia or rheumatism
run their own course to see Just what Na
ture would do. Interfering only in emer
gencies, or In esse of serious danger.
"Results followed which are well under
wav to revolutionise the pmctlce of medi
cine First, the discovery that the healthy
human organism possessed Inherent pow-
ers of defense acalust disease and that j
many of what we put ditwn a symptom I
of disease and even a parts of the disease
process, auch as fever, pain, vomiting,
diarrhoea, sjilvering fits and some forms
of convulsions, are parts of Nature's ef
fort to get rid of the poison. Our proper
function Is to intelligently assist Natuie
In her efforts. Instiad of thwarting her at
every turn and suppressing every symptom
as quickly as we can find a drug club to
beat it down with. We now co-operate
with Nature in disease, as In health, and
check her only when she seems to have
j become panic-stricken and is going to dan
i gerous extremes. Just when to help and
I w hen to binder, and how to help without
doint; harm these are the problems that
call for brains In a doctor.
"The old, blind. Implicit confidence In
drugs Is gone, the naive belief that If we
could only find and give the one right rem.
edy It would 'do the rest,' like some
maidc button when pressed.
"In Its place is a wholesome searching
skepticism which demands proof. tests
rigidly, rejects mercilessly. Scores of hoary
old humbugs have already shrivelled In Its
white light. As our modern physlclnn
philosopher Osier phrases it: 'He Is the
best doctor who knows the worthlessness
of most drugs.' "

iianville Fruit Coi
Exhibit Wins
Silver Sweepstake's Trophy
at
Council Bluffs Horticultural Show
The Manvllle Fruit Co.'a exhibit la attracting the most attention of any exhibit
at the Horticultural Congress.
It la considered the most artistic display In the building;, containing; as It does,
the rreatest number of varieties of apples grown by any one lndlvdual.
The pack Is considered to be the most perfect exhibit
The orchard In which this fruit was grown Is considered all over the Northwest
aa being the mftt perfectly cared for orchard In Boise Valley.
Last year this same orchard furnished the apples at the Counotl Bluffs show,
with which the Bain Commercial Club won the "Brother Jonathan Trophy" for the
best three boxes of Jonathans grown In any state, aa well as the sweepstakes oup for
best twenty-five boxejs grown In any state.
It also won a larpe cup for the best commercial pack of apples, and another cup
for the best county exhibit.
The winning of the sweepstakes prize this year waa considerable In the nsture of
a surprise, since the exhibition of this car of apples waa not contemplated until of
this year's crop had been shipped.
This orchard has never entered for sweepatakes on fruit at the Intermountaln
State Fair of Idaho without winning- first premiums.
There were forty carloads of apples packed and shipped this fall from this or
chard of fifty-eight acres. There wan less than 6 per cent of culls and these were
made Into older. This orchard la 16 years old and an apple tree 30 years old in the
Boise Valley is aa productive as a tree In Its prime In this country.
