GREAT PRESENCE OF MIND.
A Terrible Catastrophe Averted By a Pub
lic Speaker's Self-Control. . ' .
One of the "sights'' of Philadelphia,
fifty years ago, was a magnificent
Chinese museum, whose, treasures, col
lected by Mr- Dunn, a munificent mer
chant, were displayed in a building
erected on the site on which now stand
the Continental hotel. Over the mu
seum was a 'long, narrow upper room,
about thirty-five feet high. It. was a
public hall, used for lectures and con
certs, and with it was associated a most
remarkable " instance of presence of
mind. A correspondent of the London
Spectator "tells the thrilling story.
. In the central part of this immense
auditorium were collected one evening
about three thousand persons, - At
about nine o'clock, the manager 'of the
building' came to -the leader of the
meeting, white with affright, and told
him that the floor had sunk nearly a
foot, and that in a few minutes more
the tenons of the joists might be out of
their sockets. .
The floor would then fall through
onto ; the Chinese museum, ,and the
walls,' sixty feet in . height, would col
lapse and be precipitated, with the
roof, upon the assembly.' .
The leader explained to the. person
whom the - audience expected next to
hear, that by addressing ithe assembly
from the end, of the halL he 'could with
draw the company from the sunken
part of the floor to that where the
front walls strengthened' the joists to
bear the weight of the people.
. The reply to this was that his own
.family was in the audience,, and that
he must get them out first. . "You shall
not!" said the leader; "a hint of dang-er,
a rush, and we shall all be under the
fallen walls and roof. . Five minutes'
delay' may kill us altogether."
As a boy in the audience I well re
member . my surprise at seeing the
leader suddenly appear at the far front
of the room, and tell the ; people that
they . would next be addressed from
where he, stood the organ-loft. As
the audience turned and moved to the
front, the flooring rose six inches.'
The people" were entertained partly
Dy an impromptu sentimental song in
' a voice without a ' Juaver, . in the very
face of death, and as soon as practica
ble they were fluietly dismissed. -
Not a single individual in that great
assembly was aware that,- by the pres
ence of mind of one man, an awful ca
tastrophe. had.v been . averted. ' The
imagination sickens at the thought of
what would have1" been the consequence
of a panic and sudden alarm by the
failure of the courage of this man.
I am 'confident that, excepting the
speaker referred to and the manager of
the building,, no one outside the imme
diate family of the man whose courage
prevented this catastrophe has known
tne whole story till now.-
The terror of those minutes before
the crowd was moved and the floor
rose toward its level, was such, that he
never, even in 'his own family, alluded
to the scene, "though he lived for forty
years afterward. . .-
