The 8eeret of the Color la One of Turner. Picture. The late Mr. Horsley, It. A., has recorded recorded that at one time he studied almost almost dally one of Turner's finest water colors, cr.lied "The Snowdon Range," admiring especially the tender warmth of the light clouds encircling the moon. He tried all sorts of glasses to see if he could discover how the pnrticular glow was gained, but without success. Chance .revealed the secret. The picture picture began to buckle from its mount and its owner, Sir Seymour Haden, put it into the hands of a noted expert to be remounted. When he had successfully successfully removed it from its old mount the expert sent for the owner to show him what he had discovered. ' A circle of orange vermilion had been plastered on the back with an ivory palette knife where the artist wanted tbe effect and then worked off sufficiently far through the pores of the previously wetted paper paper to give the show of color, while retaining retaining the smooth surface, without a trace of workmanship on the - right side. - . . ' This may have led Mr. Horsley himself himself to use, as he did, brilliant orange as the foundation for a white muslin dress.

It has always struck me a curious tbat, though Englishmen are so fond ef all athletic pons, though yachting, yachting, boating and fishing take so prominent prominent a place among onr sportb and amusements, we are such very bad swimmers. - When at Cambridge 1 co::ld never And any one who would swim tbe half mile with me, and I doubt If there were twenty men at the' university who could have swum hair a mile. - fRather not, I get so pumped;" was tbe answer always made to my invitation. Yet there Is no exercise which, when properly learned, "pumps - '' one less or tires one less. After a Ore 'mile race one's heart is not beating any faster than at the start, nor is one half so exhausted as after riding a bicycle - np a steep bill. 7 I often talked with Captain Webb about his channel swim, and be told me that even after swimming for twenty - two hours his - muscles were not very tired and that it was weariness weariness he felt more than exhaustion. We used to swim for two hours together twice a week when ' we were both training for some race. He was a slow swimmer, but swam in excellent style,' which means he wasted none of his strength, and when I knew him he ever swam anything but the breast stroke. If I remember rightly, he never was any good at any of the side, strokes, and he certainly swam the channel on bis breast Tbe channel may be crossed again, but it is not very likely, as several good swimmers bae tried and been beaten. Except for the pleasure of having to look out tbe Hellespont In the map, Byron's swhn (which is, I suppose, more or less! a historical event, as it is alluded to by every distributer of swimming priies who wishes to show his learning) should be forgotten and never alluded to as a feat at all when compared With .Webb's. . ; 1 Men nre "pumped" because so' few care to learn to swim properly andi are content to flounder and splutter about, thinking apparently that the faster they move their arms and legs, never, mind in what direction, the more magnificent magnificent their swimming, f . r Swimming is a question of balance, and that is why when once learned it Is never forgotten. The mistake in learning is that to avoid breathing in "water boys put their heads too far back and so keep their mouths too far above the surface. Nobody will ever swim well or with ease till he has learned that it is not necessary to carry bis neck like a strangled giraffe. This, strained attitude upsets the balance. You will see every good swimmer in the world swimming with his mouth under water till tbe arms separate. His body will thus be straight, very, bigh in the water, and be will be balanced balanced properly., ,..'.' ;; i ' To learn' to breathe properly means to learn to swim quickly and well. It Is very simple. . All that the tyro need remember is to breathe outward as his bands go forward and to breathe inward inward directly his hands separate, which Is the moment when his bead is highest. highest. I have found it useful when teaching to tell boys to "blow their hands from them" as a sort of memorial memorial technica of the moment to breathe outward. I am sorry for lads whom I see. learning to swim when they become become apparently much distressed about the proper movement of their legs and arms and much more sorely distressed really by the amount of bath water they are swallowing, of which the instructor instructor takes no note, though the pupil pupil does. One word more about learning. It is important very that the hands in breast stroke swimming should work in the same horizontal plane as the body and not downward. Working them downward is a waste of strength. They are then only lifting the body out of instead of propelling it through, the water. It is important that boys should be taught the breast stroke properly. AH boys think they can swim quicker on their sides because when on their sides they see the water pass by their faces and fancy they are going as fast as a torpedo catcher. But it is a mistake. mistake. The proper stroke now adopted by all amateurs and professionals for racing is very different from what boys call "side stroke" and ought to be carefully carefully learned after a good breast stroke has been mastered.

Meantime read the eondtions carefully on the ninth page of .to - day's Truth. - breast stroke can save yon In trouble, qor can you save a drowning man by any fancy .swimming. .Now, for the second part of my text Can there be a more hideous danger tttan that of swimming up to rescue a diiownlng and struggling man who, fiflhting for bis life and In the agony of sutffocatlon, will seize you and clutch yau and take you with him to tbe bottom? bottom? Drowning men are said to clutch ad a straw, but for choice they prefer something more substantial. Summer after summer we read the same old story of the rescuer being clutched and drowned and two lives lost, one of them certainly being that of a brave man. Yet it is a mere question of three or four hours' teaching and practice practice to enable any one to rescue a drowning man with but very little danger danger to the rescuer. It bas been my painful duty to award tbe medals at the so called life saving competitions now taking place every summer at our public schools. Miserable Miserable and gloomy farces tbey are! A stuffed booby is pushed out about twenty yards into the water, and the boys Jump In, one after another, and pull it to shore. The booby Is then sunk, and the boys have to dive and bring it up, no directions being given how properly to do so. Anything more unlike what one bas to do when confronted confronted with the danger of rescuing a struggling man it is impossible to conceive, conceive, and I hope the day is not far distant when public schoolboys will be ashamed to accept a medal for such a silly competition. . When you swim up to a drowning man he will probably seize you by the wrists. If you turn your wrists round against bis thumbs he cannot bold you for a second, and the fact of bis losing his hold on you will probably swing him round, so that you can then catch hold of him properly 'and bring him to shore, swimming on your back. . My readers should be a little careful how they practice this, because if they; try to hold on when the wrists are turned against their thumbs tbe result may probably be dislocation. It is not safe, however, to assume that the rescued man will remain quiet, nor will he if any water spasbes on bis face, so the best way to hold him is to - place your arms under his and your bands ,on his chest ' He cannot then turn round on you and bis head is higher out of' the water than when simply held by the head. If he seizes you ' by the head, which Is tbe next most likely part,, to be grasped, you must put one arm behind bis back and one band under his chin. The arm behind behind piull8 him - toward - you; the hand under (the chin pushes his head backward backward find under water. He will let go of necessity. If he seizes you lower down you must put your knee up as high as it will go, and you can easily free yjaurself. AH this is far easier to do ithan it is to describe, if only men will, take tbe little trouble to learn. If tbe drowning man has sunk you will generally see by the bubbles in Still water whereabouts he is. Dive down, i and be it noted that the common common idea that you cannot open your eyes under water, but must go down with them open, is utter nonsense. Get the booy across one knee, and a kick from tbe other leg will bring you and him to' the surface. A man will not clutch or struggle if he has once sunk, but there is no reason for letting him sink. A man who has sunk is very nearly dead. Be It noted also that it is utter nonsense . to say tbat a man "rises three times," and it is difficult to know! how such a very common belief belief can be so widespread. If you determine determine Ito wait till your sunken man rises again you will have to wait till the resurrection day. So faril have referred only to rescuing rescuing a struggling man fighting for his life andl lost to all sense but his own danger, chut it may happen to many of us to bd swimming with a friend who gets cramp or to soldiers to have to get a wounded comrade across a river. The ordinary mortal would try to swim with the injured man on his back aad . would assuredly fail. : But nothingtcan possibly be easier than to help another man who will keep quiet and has (his wits about him.
