TWENTY-TWO HOURS IN WATER

B TOMMY CLARK.
Altar aMaps of thirty -six years, la
which Bumberless attempt bar been
mad. Captain Matthew Webb's feat of
swimming the English channel haa
been duplicated by William Bargee, a
Torkabiremaa by birth and a black-
i n KiDoaAmrab Dcarso cam of
Smith In Paris. It waa Barges' etx
teenth attempt, be having flnt essayed
the task la 1901,
Bnrgeaa started from 8outb Fore
nan. Dorer. flfteeo mlnatea paat 11
o'clock the morning of Sept. 5. He
landed at La Cbatele. a Uttle village
two miles east of Cape Grla Kes, at
ten mlnatea before 10 o'clock tbe
morning of the 6th, accomplishing the
passage la 22 hours 33 minutes. A mo
tor boat accompanied the swimmer,
owing to tbe algsag coarse be was
compelled to take because1 of baffling
tides, covered sixty miles.
Throughout the trip Bnrgeaa waa fa
vored by a calm sea, but a strong tide
waa running, and a severe strain waa
put on the swimmer to get paat tbe
' Goodwin sands. Twice' be waa attack
ed by lllnesa and several times waa
held to hla task only by tbe strongest
will power and tbe encouraging words
of the men In the boat.,
- For the trip across tbe channel Bur
gee waa well greased. -He wore a
pair of goggles and a robber bathing
; cap. A party of eleven accompanied
him la the motorboat
8wlmmlng tbe English channel la
not like taking a dip In tbe surf at
. eosae aea side resort, a dash through, a
nice calm lake -or a swim from one
aide of the river to tbe other. Nats
Hon on a 'rough day In tbe tempestu
ous Atlantic ocean gives an Idea of
the European feat, but still It lacks
some of tbe essential features that
- have made tbe aquatic Marathon uo
swum by so many.
, Tbe English channel is probably the
. best body of water known to tborougb
- ly try tbe capabilities of a swimmer.
. First there Is necessary the ability to
swim. and swim well. Then comes
endurance, a potential factor, as tbe
sailors the world over know tbe chan
nel as one of the stormiest bits of wa
ter to be encountered. The historic
bay of Biscay la often peaceful, the
English channel seldom so. ' r, -
It Is the strong and varying current
la the English channel that renders
the crossing so difficult, even, in fact,
for vessels. While tbe distance from
v ci iv awSBassvaaa am van aa . aaa. uvu V "n
twenty miles, tbe tide snd current
sweep tbe swimmers back and forth,
op and down the course, almost at
will at time. Captain Webb la estJ
' mated to have covered almost forty
miles when be swam tbe channel.
Of course no story Is complete with
out mention of Captain Paul Boyton.
The latter was tbe flint man to croes
the channel, but he did it In his fa
mous rubber air Inflated suit.
Statistics give a faint Idea to the no
initiated of the hardships involved. Be
low are a few of tbe requisites:
Food. Swimmers must be able) to
take food la the water without tbe
admixture of salt water. In which case
seasickness usually results.
Eyes. The eyes most be accustomed
to aalt water, and In addition a can
vas helmet with glass eyes la gener
ally need, protecting tbe ears as well.
Head and Brain. A thin rubber
Skullcap Is generally used to keep the
bead and brain warm and prevent
nand and .Peet Because of the
suffering from cold tbe hands and
feet, together with the stomach, neck,
back of, the bead and outsldes of tbe
ears, are usually anointed with tar,
. the inside of tbe sera being plugged
. with soft waa, held In by wadding.
- Body. The body Is smeared with
Cassia n tallow In order to retain the
natural beat as long as poadhle, tnd
lard Is used as a second dressing.
Tsll of the Ptarmigan,
One of the most entertaining of chap-
tors In natural history is that, which
relates to 4 the many curious 1 meana
that birds and other-animals possess
of deceiving tbe eyas of their enemies.
Attention may bo called to the fol
lowing retoarkable instance: .
When the ptarmigan puts on its win
ter dress it has a black tall. , , Qne
might suppose, that this would aUract
attention to the bird crouching on the
snow, but to fact It serves Tot Con

A aooaewtfe has this to say about

Clarke Takes Many Chance.
Fred Clarke Is one of tbe few out
fielders who once In awhile dare shoot
the ball In to second base when

ways making tbe conventional return

ception and some boldness and is a
departure from conservatism which
most outfielders haven't tbe rapid Judg
