A BOY'S BRAVERY. The story of a brave act was related by a lad named George- Collins, fifteen, in his evi- dence in a charge of attempted suicide brought against Frank Short, fifteen, at Old-street, London, on Monday. Collins stated that on Sunday afternoon he Was fishing in the canal, when he saw the prisoner jump deliberately into the water, and struggle towards the middle. Witness saw that the prisoner could not swim, andldivestilig himself of his coat, jumped in and swam to the other boy, who by this time had sunk twice. He seized Short and swam with him towards the bank, but when about half way he was clasped round the neck by his semi-conscious burden, land had to release his hold. Witness again got hold of the boy, and swam a few more strokes, but the struggling lad twisted his legs round those of witness, and he was &gain forced to loose his hold. Finally, how- ever, he managed to get dose to the bank, and someone pulled both lads ashore. The magistrate commended, Collins, awarded him 5s., and said he should report his fyravery to the Royal Humane Society. —; •
