maniac was about to float down th river
in a rowboat to the edge of the fall, ex

death. A multitude of people gathered
upon Goat Island and along the Canadian
shore, and presently they were i horror-
stricken to see a boat drifting down with
the strong current directly in the middle
of the river. In it was the fig ire of a
man. .He sat placid and motionless,

hurried to the foot of the falls, ad finally
