VIGILANTES SHOULD HANDLE BOAT ROCKER As to the paralytic cramps which sometimes seise those la the water, this is a mishap which cannot, of course be foreseen. Every swimmer, however, should take the poeelbillty of euch a disaster Into consideration before he makes a venturesome effort. The Individual who cannot swim should never wade In wster that Is above the waist line without wearing a Ufa preserver. Better still, be should never go out over knee-deep until he learna to awinl. As to the fool that rocks the boat, what more caa be added to the columns ef literature that have already been publlahed for his discouragement T Apparently he cannot be weeded out: It Is Impossible to eliminate him aa the evil genlue of the fee-tlvitlee of many and many a summer outing. It Would not. perhaps, be a bad Idea to organise a vigilance committee for every pleasuring party that goes down to the barslds or to the riverside. Bueh a committee might observe premonitory symptoms of the boet-rocklng erase and deal with the boat rocker In time to prevent tragic consequences. Baltimore American.

And to this car ahortago I might ear a ward la reply, to the general charge that the railroads arp wholly to blame for the cer shortage- The charge te unjust In many respecte. Numerous causes conspire to bring about a shortage or ormgestlonln cere ef which the people know noth!ngand they are causes for which the railroads are aot respon sible and cannot avoid.' DEPRECATES LOWER RATE. Harrlmaa deprecated the recent tend ency of rate legislatUra. Said be: "In the development and improvement of railroads one factor ef vital consideration Is ths relative coat of material and labor and the scale of rates for traffic. Labor te scarce and much higher paid thaa ever, material la often hard te get and costs mors, yst rates have been reduced aad texee Increased. This Is aot a consideration which holds out either to the people or the railroads the brightest prospect.
