HEROIC
RESCUE AT
NIAGARA
Niagara Falls, N.Y., July 22— Truman Chapman, 22 years old, of Hniiiil
ton. Ont., was rescued from the Very
; brink oi the American fulls last night
by four men, une of whom took desperate i hanres to reach him. Cbiip-
man was sitting on tlie railing just
above Prospect poini, about 0 o'eloek
when th.; loiterers in libe pink were
horrified to see him suddenly topple
backwards ami tall 'into the stream.
At the point the current i.s swiit nnd
the pull toward the brink of the falls
almost irresistible. After striking the
water Chapman's l o ly lodged against
two small projections of rock and this
undoubtedly saved him fio.n ulmost
instant  death.
When the cry went up that a man
was lyinj; in the water Join Hughes
and Th mias S. Winders of Niagara
Falls, Thomas U. Thomas 0f Toronto
and a feiiinh man who did not t iv*'- bis
name to the polico, leaped over the
railing.
The unidentified man waded out wv-
eral feet from the shore-, but could aol
reach far enough out io get a secure
hold of Chapman, wh'i seemed to be
unconscious' or unable o help himself
Hugh is Winders and Thomas formed
in a chain from the imn fence and
clinging io the- unknown man's hand
enabled him to get a few Inohes nearer Chapman. Wheu tho unconscious
man was pulled away from lhe supporting hold of the rocks there was au
other moment of intense suspense for
the rescuers. Hie body was a dead
Weight and the null ut the current toward the brin*. of ihe falls less than
fifteen feet away was tremendous. A
break iu the chain meant not only the
loss of Chapman's lie, but also the
life of the unknown man who was then
too far uut to get back to the rAiore uu
aided.
Twice the man a1 bhe end of the
chain was sept from his feet, but ho
elung desperately to the helpless burden a iv.l the united efforts of the throe
men nearest who had a better footing,
finally swung the two of them out of
thc grasp of the culrent.
Chapman was unconscious for over
an hour after being taken ashore.
Relatives said he was subject to fits
and undoubtedly was stricken while
Bitting on  th-' rail.

Summerland, B.C., July 22-Tho unique -pe-e-ta Ic <ei a water spout ex -
tending from the BUrface oi ths lake
t.e the low-hung cloud-, was the Might
which the pn-.-engers on Sunday evening's boat were privileged to itee. The
"spout" occurred just following a
heavy whii ling gust of wind, which
swung the Incoming steamer completely about in its . ourse. The whirling
hurricane creating a vacuum, the water wa- ii. ked into it and carried cork
screw-like upward. The phenomenon
lasto i tot* -o;ne minutes in thc vicinity of Summerland paint, finally dis-
appearing when the wind subsided.
Aa far as e;,n be ascertained the wa-
t.i-pi'iit i- the liisi peen here tor some
years, and the occurrence follows upon a succession of peculiarly abnormal weather and atniospheiie- conditions
which have been prevalent during the
entire Bea-on. Heavy rainB fiviuent -
ly follow "spouts" as the molsturo
i.iK- n up in this manner is subject to
very moid change from its vaporous
State de'se-ending frequently in a deluge.
