'2.— Carlisle ). Graham, tho Philadelphia Cooper, shot rer tho brink at the groat Horseshoe falls t 7:10 o'clock yc?torday morning. Ho wns ghtly cased in his barrel-boat, and twenty- ve minutes later "was picked up in BOBS lock eddy, comparatively unharmed. The enturo, never before accomplished, was by not less than fifty spectators. 'ho friends of Graham had become well nigh iscournged by tho frequent and dispiriting allures that hnd marked his early eTorh. A Successful Kxperliuent. The gallant hero of the rapids, by untiring (Torts, collected roonoy nnd at last succeeded in building a small barrel that wont ver tho falls intact This sank at the bat- om, owing to the manhole coming open, but his w^s regarded as a preventable accident, ,nd funds wore quickly turned over to Jraham by secret admirers in Buffalo to ulld him another barrel. Tho craft was oon constructed of Chinoso tulip on lines dontlcal with its predecessor, and on Aug. *5 Graham redo In It through tho whirlpool nd Devil's Rapids down from the foot of he falls tq_tbo villagn of Lowiaton," S diS- unco'of flvo miles through tho ugliest water itienrlb. Drank to l» Perilous Venture. *'•' The barret had hardly been scratched, and he party were BO pleased that then and hero a solemn vow was made to uso it .to go iver the falls in nt the earliest possible date. Standing on the head of tho submerged bur- rol, which shifted about on tho uneasy vutcr, Graham lifted a glass of liquor to his ,i|», and said: "J drink to tho health of .» ;reator venture than this, which, God holj>- ngjiie, slialLbo—accomplished—Uiforo the oaves turn." His companions were nlinost rightened at this solemn vow, which looked to them very like a health drunk to certain leath. . ° Difficulties Overcome. There were difficulties lu tho way however. Tho police officials on both sides of the falls md given it out In dead earnest that tho bastilo would bo the fato"of any man who attempted the apparently suicidal piece of justness, and consequently Graham had to about it vory slyly. He made tho ar rangements, however, and got himself and barrel inside of a hack about 2 a. m. yesterday, and hia friends following, proceeded to a point about three miles above ;he falls and prepared for the trial. A policeman came up to tho carriage in which ;he barrel was ensconced and was told that [t wan going so be sent over tho fulls as an experiment, but assured that Graham was not along. At this time the subjjct of conversation was speeding along behind a board fence leadign toward the hotel doubled up llko a jack} knife in a frantic endeavor to keep out of alght The brief colloquy over, the party went on around tho curve, out of the official's sight and took Graham aboard. He ttntora the llarrol. Arrived at the point of departure Garry K. Staley now appeared in a row boat, in which he had come do,wn from LaSalle, am the men quickly embarked, and taking the barrel in tow, pulleJ out Into the river, perhaps three hundred yards from tlio shore. There the manhole was opened and Graham entered tho barrel. He was dressed in tho tighta in which all of bis famous foata have been performed, in addition to which he wore a heavy outer-shirt—Ho-first placed a coat in the bottom of the barrel on top o two thirty-pound bags of sand. Then ho knelt down, thrusting both logs and arm through a broad belt of webbing stretched across tho barrel." The M anhole Secured. The little craft is to small that even then bin head projected, but he bowed it, and tw< thicknesses of tarpaulin- wero thrown ovei tho manhole, which was'then battened down and fastened by two iron cleato an inch and a half wlda Thene were locked with bra; snap locks. Fifty feet of inch rope was at t ached to the top of the barrel to keep it upright, acting as a drag. To help effect th same purpose 100' pounds of railroad Iron was fastened to the bottom. When all wi secured Horn rapped on, the end of the bar rel and asked: "Are you all right, Gra bam»" "Yes," was the muffled response; "bulge me oft »s quick as pos-slblo,or I shall smother before tho triuii begun." Speeding for the 1'Eunge* He was at ouco started on his downwan journey, and In a moment was whirling toward the lino of foam that marked tb flrst rapids. This was at «:45 o'clock. Th long drag rope retarded the progress of th barrel, and it was fully fifteen minutes be f ore it was hidden from tho view of the am ious watchers in tho little boat. They saw whirl over as it wont down the tall of fil teen feet at tho second rapids, and then right itself as tbo slack of tho rope wti drawn taut This, it subsequently appeared nearly cost Graham his life.

Then it shifted toward tbo Canada shore and at precisely 7:10 o'clock ran up on line of foam on the verge of the center o the Horseshoe, topped gracefully backwarc and disappeared over tho brink. Tho me shouted hoarsely at each other, and tho started at break-neck for the Maid of the iliat landing. Tho newspaper men o Table Rock also saw the plunge, and Hatches in hand waited for Graham to emerge. •'One minute, a minute aud a quarter—* half—he is lost," shouted a woman, who began sobbing.
