Storyline

The presence of some Canadian soldiers on United States soil at a recent Niagara celebration, is one of the many features, shown in the film, that preceded the descent of the Falls in a barrel by the intrepid Leach. We see Leach preparing to enter the barrel. Then we trace the progress of the tiny vessel through the rapids and whirlpool. Finally he is seen coming out of the barrel. Incidentally an airship joins in the celebration and at the conclusion of Leach's feat a flock of carrier pigeons is let loose. There are views of the "Maid of the Mist" under the Falls, and of the bridge with a train at rest upon it, above the Falls. The picture gives some vivid representations of the tumultuous waters, and Leach's progress is clearly traced through them. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
