The late Steve Brodie acquired fame as a bridge jumper, and long ran a Bowery saloon on the strength of it, but -many say it was never prov- ed that Steve really jumped. Sev- eral would-be suicides have been tak- en out of the river unhurt after jump- ing 'but Otto Eppers is the first to jump -with unquestioned -witnesses.

He weighs about 110 fronds, and has been unofficial swimming champion of the East riv- er since he into the ibig fcovs' class. Recently he heard a Brooklyn merchant was willing to pay out of his advertising appropria- tion to the first man who -would jump from any one of the bridges over the East river. Eppers -had jumped from a bridge before, and the addition of a I few more feet never caused him so much as a thought 1 "Sure, m do he said, and he j did. __ i He meant to from the new -Manhattan bridge, because he thought it was higher. The height is in real- ity the same for all the East river bridges, but the police were too -watch ful. He meant to shed his coat and trousers, but he didn't have time. He meant to take off his heavy boots, but the river did that for him. Resembles Pin Wheel in Fall. He meant to dive in one. long sweeping arc, "but he told, afterwards, "I started to twist and I couldn't stop." Passengers on the ferryboats wiio saw him said he turned like a pin wheel. "I wasn't scared a bit until I jump- id." he continued, "but -I don't re- member anything auer'r hit until I came up again."

Paris, July James Bertillon e well known chief of the finger- print department of the French police las.published, an article on the flues- Ion. of the connection between alco- hol and .tuberculosis. Dr. Bertillon 'says that of the causes which in, France favor the develop- ment of tuberculosis the most import- ant is the alcohol in beer and spirits. declares, however, that the best enemy of tuberculosis is wine. In the twenty-eight Departments which form the northern part of France, where cider, beer, spirits-espocially much drunk, the deaths caused by consumption were 230 per while the proportion was 140 per 100.000 in the other Departments of France where wine_ is the favorite drink. After the age of 30, con- sumption is twice or three -times j more frequent amongst men than j women, undoubtedly because the j drinking of alcohol is more common j with the former than with the lat- i ter. To combat consumption, Dr. Ber- tillon says "v.Te must combat alcohol- ism.'-" and the surest method of do- ing this is to encourage the drink- i ing of wine, and discourage the drink- ing of cider, beer, brandy, and other spirits.
