'Cappa," I  says to myscH, 'It's up to you to  jump or the Commercial Club will  have to got n new chef,' So I  jumped."'  Thus spoke D. L. Cappa, chef of  the Commercial Club in ,Portland,  who, during the lire of Friday afternoon, inwite the longest leap ou. record'to a lifeuet. Capfa holds the  world's record lor a leap into a life,  net. He jumped seven" stories from  ������������������a rear window of the Commercial  Club upon a hfenet which was stretched on Uic roof, of the one-story  building occupied by the Union Printing Company. The Commercial CUvb  was in the eighth floor of the Cham*  ber of-. Commerce building.' Until the  leap of Cappa the record. {or long  jumps into lifenets was. held by the  quests who ' jumped from Uie Hotel  Windsor, in New York when it was  on fire. Some of tho guests jumped  six stories in safety.  For a main who, had* such a marvelous escape %Cn,ppa is progressing  very favorably, and it is hoped that'  he will be able to be out within a  few days. Two of his ribs were bio  ken, but outside of a Weic sh&king-  up'he is not otherwise injured.* He  is under treatment, at tlie Good Samaritan .hospital where he, was interviewed yesterday  afternoon.  When asked to tell of his terrible  experience ,hc at first laughed, but  when he had entered into an account  of 'his remarkable eseai^e, his face became iiharll and serious. Several times  during his na> ration he* shuddeioil,  and his features contracted as if he  were in pain.  "I tell yon I didn't jump until I  thought ii was absolutely necessary  because it looked to be at least a  mile to the roof of that building,"  he" said.. ^".I try riot to think of  that jump���������well, every time I think  of my escape I lhe the whole thing  o\er. That is why I -try to be  cheerful to drive the horrible pic-  tuie from my  mind.  "I was in the kitchen making out  the menu for the annual hawjiet���������>hy  the wav wc had planned to make  that a swell affair���������when in rushed  one of the wa tcrs, who told me  tin t the parlors were on fire. . He  yrabbed one of the chemical fire ex-  liiigiiishers and wfjit old-  "1 pushed iifler him, end one look  at tlic I'amcs was enough 1o con-  \ inee me that wc had no time to  lose in getting out. The others in  the kitchen had not heard th? waiter tell nve of the fine, so I returned to warn thorn. Then we all  started to go through the bridge  across the court to the' windows  looking over the Sherlock building.  But the smoke and "tlie flames drove  u������ back. By that time the south  end of the dining-room w������s a sheet  of flames which wore eating their  way'towards us.  "Wc rain to thc northwest corner  of thc building, where the firemen  saw us and started to send up a  ladder. I got dizzy, and when 1  looked" abain-I saw that the ladder  reached only to about the seventh  floor. I forgot about the smaller  ladders that -they have. Anyway, 1  could never have got down that ladder, as I should have fallen ^ sure,  and there was no lifenet on rin������ sidewalk below, a couldn't have followed the others down those sha1"y ladders;   I am  tdo nervous.     -  "1 ran and opened one of the rear  windows-to obtain some fresh air.  The people on the streets and on the  roofs of the adjoining buildings saw  mc, and I thought the firemen would  send a ladder up to the window  The flames kept getting nearer and  nearer, and the smoke made me keep  my head out o f the window. 1  thought there was no hope, and was  ahout ready to give up. Pretty soon  they got the lifenet ready, but I hesitated long before I decided to make  the leap.    , ��������� .  "The heat was what drove me to  it. It was very intense, and - the  smoke was almost suffocating. When  I glanced back over my shoulder, ]  could see the flames darting here and  there, and  every time I  looked  they  SEEKS HIS  BRIDE  PENiTENT&RY  LADYSMITH FAMILY FROM 'FMSCO  MONEY IS  NOT NEEDED  Kansas City, April 2."��������� ���������'We were  swoethearts when we were children.

ALL C UB  WILL BiNOUtl  DfLEGAiES UWMi  It was arranged at the football  meeting last evening in the Howei/  to provide a little .spread for thai.,  teption of the delegates to tlic annual eoiit'dition of the B.C.A.F. League, which will be held here on Sai-  uiday evening next.  Other matters of interest to t|Jt)  Intermediates were talked over, Mr.  J. Stevens being elected tG tlie chair.  Mr. J. Adam, the senior delegate  to the League convention, was pn i-  ent, Hijd road a communication dc.,l- ���������  ing with the proposed amen. 1 men's  to the constitution which will he  discussed on S. turday. The amen 1-  mciits sugecsted seemed to appiol  favorably to the meeting last, evening, and will receive the supportj ol  the local delegates.   ,  Another    matter      v.'hkh    will    le  bi ought  up  is.the  piopo&ol,  amen-l-  ment of the1 rule governing the    a e .  limit    of intermediate playeis.      ..' t  present   the ,constitution   reads    th.it  all    players    over   21 ycais of     a e  slull be barred from an Intermedia'e ,'  team.     This appealed to the nice!in*  as  being-an  unfair  pioposilion,    ai l  in, many    cases  it  is    impossible tor  get    a  full    team   of young  playeis  away   from   'home.     Then   again,   >\ .   ���������  player al o e tlie age limit may    ' ���������������������������;      '  a good   intermediate player, but n>. t  quite good enough    to catch a phu-.j  with the swiiors.     In such case he r-i '  shut  o;iit  from  cither  team,  and     io  was thof-'ght that many  good playeis ' -' '  would   ]je lost  for  the game.     The     ~  rule legaidiiig  the  number  of   times  an      intermediate    can    play    senior  games   an'l  still  remain  an   iniernn ���������  diate    was,  in   the  mind of the nice1 -  ing   sufficient   check' to the habit   cf  playing    seniors   on an intcrmcAvifclJ-J-s,  team.

A motion was pas -cd to the ef'r< fc  that the club puichase gc-al nets ar. I  half a dozen footballs with a vru-  ticin of  the funds on hand.  The nets will lie purchased fiom  the Garrison team ;f they can I u  procured at a reasonable price. i  The s< ibject of keeping up thc dues  from members of the 'team, came u-i  lor discussion. ��������� It wasjinally dcci -  ed that a financial secretary le a -  pointed to collect 25 cents each  month., during- the. closal seascn bo -i  each mem ber.

THE  GREAT  SEA  WAVE.  Mr. William E. Bruce told a grar  phic story of the sea wave that  Cains ashore in January last on the  Pacific (.'oast of Colombia. Several  hundred persons in the little town  01 Tunmco were drowned in the over  whelming Hood, aiul the horror of  the eartltcjfua' e that had just destroyed many homes was thus intensified. ���������     ,  Thc story of such waves following  an eiarthVjuake is old, and So is the  mistake that many writers perpetrate by describing them as tidal  \va\cs. Tidal influences luvc nothing to do with their formation.  They are caused by the earth^iaU's  themselves, and are the natural result of earthquake shocks originating  under certain conditions.  This earlhiq'uale originated under  the ocean instead of beneath the  land surface. Its epiccntrum (or, in  other words, the place beneath  which the subterranean ' disturbance  that caused the earthquake was situated) lay on tiie sea floor. The  earth waves set in motion by the  su.l>tenrai������3an shook spread alonfe the  sea bottom till tliey reach the shore  and overthrew or shattered buildings'  far along the coast of Colombia;  and thc two waves were caused . by  the distu 1 banco, of thc sea floor in  lhe epiccntrum fact.'  It is likely that a vessel passing  over the opicentrum would scarcely  ha\e noticed the disturbance,, but'the  whole mass of...superincumbent water', was lifted into a mound and  the water then fell as far. below its~  natural level _ as it had been raised  aho.'e it. The sea wave thus formed, according to Mr. Bruce's description, pliod up to a height of about  Unity feet as it reached the shallow water oil shore, and fell upon  the low lying land, its onrush and  prodigious weight crushing or overturning everything in its path  fe  Fcr The  B AL L*  '���������o-~  White   Kid   Gloves��������� |  White and Cream Silk i  Gloves  Fancy While Vests  White lawn Bows  <  ������������aW-M������cM-ML������MMnc������ ���������r������������������j urn ���������**���������! ���������'������������������������m^i  Ladies  Fancy Ties=-  Cvery Description  1  Patent Leather Pomps  1  Dancing Slippors  Fancy Hosier)  EVERTHING  You   May   Require  Walter* &  AkeDhead  Wong O.
