A Terrible Experience.
The [toman Catholic Church of (he
Holy lunocents is in Thirty-seventh
street, j ust west of Broadway, New
York. It is on the south side of the
street and is separated by a narrow al?
ley from the rear of the Hotel Marlbo
rougli. The roof slants from the cen?
tral nave at a sharp angle to the alley,
which is below the .-street level and at
least CO feet beneath the roof's gutter.
A wing of the hotel shoots hack at right
angles to the church in the rear, aud,
fortunately, as it turned out. a hotel
window opens directly upon the roui.
Repairs are required upon this slate
covered roof, aud Michael FUzsiinmons,
the contractor, sent Charles Kline to do
the work. John Page, who has been
hi years in Fitzsimmons' employ, was j
assigned to help him.
The men ran n ladder from the alley
up to the roof Tuesday morning, ami
ascended it. Kline went up Qrst, and
was soon busily engaged in mending
the roof, Page went up later, tnkiug
materials with him. The two worked
steadily for a while without speaking.
Then Page began to act peculiarly as
though he wen- i!!, but as he disclaimed
any ailment Kline paid hint uo atten?
tion.
It was about the middle of the morn?
ing when Kline, hearing a peculiar
sliding noise, turned and saw his fellow
workman lying flat on the slanting
roof slowly slipping toward the edge.
He was working bis whole body con?
vulsively, and clutching at the slates,
but. of course, unable to grasp them.
Kline shouted to him; but be did not
answer. He only slipped further to?
ward the edge. It took only a moment
for Kline to realize that his assistant
was in a tit and would plunge ever the
roof's edge to certain death in a few
seconds unless rescued.
Kline did not paus; to consider the
risk, but clambered over the slanting
root with that surety of hold which
only a long practised roofer can com?
mand. He threw his left arm around
bis comrade, clutching the slates with
iiis right hand and both feet.
He might have held him there, but
Page, who was clearly in a fit, strug?
gled violently. Despite Kline's every
effort the two began to slip downward.
Kline shouted with all the strength of
his hing-, but there was no one to hear.
Ho yelled to Page to keep quiet, but
the stricken man only Struggled the
harder.
Down the slope the pair moved to?
ward that edge. Kline spat upon hi
hand and pressed the slates, but he
could not stay that leisurely but steady
descent. He moved bis feet about
frantically for some excrescence in the
smoothness of the slates, but he found
none. If Page would only stop strug?
gling he might hold still, but the mad
m in, gurgling and spitting, was in con?
stant motion.
Oh, for some help ! Tint what help
could there be in that place? Still
Kline did hot cease to cry out. He
knew that if he let j;o his comrade he
might save himself, but lie would not
let him go.
And so they slipped down, slowly
but surely, until the slates ceased and
one of Kline's feet overhung tho sixty
foot abyss.
It was his last chance. He thrust his
left toe sharply downward, and it
caught the gutter. With an effort he
iucreased his footbold*upon this slender
support. His right lieg was bent up un?
der him, his right arm sprawling up?
ward grasping the slates: his left arm
clasped his struggling comrade.
There the pair halted. The single
foothold in the muter sufficed to hold
them steady. For more than hail" an
hour, according to Kline's reckoning,
they remained there, Kline shouting
for help. Page struggling like a mad?
man. Kline began to grow faint with
the struggle, when help came.
The roof window in the Marl borough
Hotel was sc.ucely six feet away from
tho two men all this time, [nit sud?
denly appeared a chambermaid, who,
in seeing them, screamed, and ran
away. This gave Kline renewed heart.
The maid's screams attracted the house?
keeper who calli d Theodore I.enercatlx a col?
ored hall boy. who happened to be on the
lloor. Lenereaux ran to the window, climbed
partly out on the church roof, and, held by
those within, succeeded in grasping Page's
hind. He pulled him gently toward him,
Kline pushing from the other side. In this
way the two roofers were brought close under
the hotel window.
Right here Page redouble! his struggles.
Kime got both feet on the narrow tin gutter
and gave all his strength to holding the man
i i check aud Lenereaux meantime held him
nrmly by the collar. Rut more help was
needed before a rescue could be made, for
the window was three feet above tiie roof.
At this junction George Covell, another col?
ored boll boy. appeared,and he and Lenereaux
succeeded in hauling Page in at the w indow.
Kline, relieved of his charge;quickly climbed
in alter and neatly fainted when he realized
tl a; the awful strain was over.
Page rapidly recovered when he was once
in tiie room, and was soon able to go down
sta r-. He then went to bis employer's office,
accompauiod by Kline. He had never had a
i:t before :n all his sixteen years' experience
as roofer.
He did not g.> back to work again, but
Khnc did, notwithstanding his awful experi?
ence o: the morning.
