A GALLANT DEED. HEROISM OF A PENARTH GENTLE- MAN. A correspondent writing under date Singapore November 21th, --ays:- While the S3. Terra, which leaded at CardiJ was discharging at Singapore, a seamen namdd Lester, while enmbing up a stage rope, slipped, struck the stage, and fell helpless in the wat jr. Mr John Freeman, of St. Ives, who has lived in Penarth for some time, the chief officer of the ship was on the quay and saw the occurrence, and at once sprang in to Lester's assistance. The noise of the winches prevented his cries for help being heard on board for some time and he re- ceived no help from tne many Chinese specta- tors. Owing to the extremely heavy current Mr. Freeman was unable to reacu the quay, and only with diliiculty he heidon to nis unconscious man. Finally, he reched tne anchor, which, fortunately was lowered to the water, and there tlil help arrived, and Lester was hoisted aboard. Mr. Freeman then, with difficult}, reched the quay, and although quite worn out tne Chinese gave him no help to get up. Captam Patteron and his crew at once used the usual restomtlves to the unconscious seaman, fillallywith success. Medical assistance was summoned, and a doctor was soon on th9 spot, and said all had been done tnat was possible, and that Lester only needed time for com- plete recovery. After three days rest he returned to work. Air. Freeman was completely worn out at the time, but soon regained his usual health. Singapore is noted for the strong current at the wharis. and for the number of sharks attracted there by the food thrown from the ships. Mr. Freeman was aware of both, but showed no hesitation in going to the rescue. This is surely a case to be brougnt before the Humane Society.
