Joseph M. Ducrow. who ia appear- ing at the Lyceum this week in a monologue stunt, "relates some oi his stirring experiences of bridge jump- ing. Two years ago last May, while, at the Belmorit race track, "ia com- pany with a- band of bookmakers, a subject was brought up to' who would be. the first man to jump, from the new Blackwell's Island bridge, now the highest bridge in the United States, Ducrow said to "I" will bet I will jump from the bridge." No sooner had the words'- left his mouth than the bet was taken. A party of eight left the track at 2.25 and drove to the bridge in cabs- Du- crow went to the Greenpoint Long Island Sporting Club and donned a suit of. tights, suitable for the jump, then rode directly to the bridge" in a cab." At. 4.30 he went on the highest span of the bridge and jumped, a dis- tance of 428 feet. Boats were in wait- j ing, arid, he was taken to shore not i much the worse for his plunge. He' was taken into custody by the police j with -the charge of intending suicide, i After serving 10 days "he was ac- quitted. On another occasion, while: travelling with Forepaugh's circus, j touring York State, in the sea- son of 1903, he jumped from the Poughkeepsie, jST.Y., bridge, a dis- tance of 392 feet. After he was taken from the water it was found that one rib was broken, which laid hirfr up in the hospital. He also paid a; court fine of While touring one through Nova Scotia he jump- ed from the old Dominion bridge, a i short distance fjjom Halifax, a dis-1 tance of 312" feet, and came out of the water without a mark. Mr. Ducrow remarked that he would, jump from the at the smelter if there was money-enough in sight, and if was a net set in a proper way for the leap.

Harry Fleetwood is still forgotten and I suppose as long as Dave King bears that "little two-by four grudge against Mm salary will not be lifted up to the place it should be. Fleetwood worked hard for the city for years before some "of the present officials were ever heard of and yet last year's council was so ungrateful as not to give him even the slightest advance. Prob- ably if he got nasty and ran behind the door and wept or threatened'to tiirow up the job without any notice the Council might have got down its knees and begged him to cc_ back and name his own salary.
