ON THE VERGE OF DEATLn
A GYMNAST'S ADVENTURN.
I had among my fellow students
a special renown for my skill in every
kind of g luastics. Atletic exer
cise, in t2 1e wildest sense of the
term, was to me a pleasure to which
I had surrendered myself, body and
soul, and inl consequence of which I
possessed, although not tall and
strong, some muscle and a high de
gree of confidence, while I had ac
quired, in perilous situations, pres
ence of mind-all of which qualitics
form even now a considerable por
tion of my charaoter. When at lsnit
liy studies were ended, and I had
obtained a situation as pastor in
western Germany, I did not give up
my old inclination for gymnastics,
and there was considerable talk on&
liao d-ty over the cireanistanco that
the young clergyman of the church
of St. Blasius had been seen hanging
in his legs, and in this headlong
position caressing his little son, who
was crawling under him on the
ground. 1 possessed such an article
of humanity, since on my accession
to the pntorate, I had steered into
the harbor of matrimony.
But my favorite diversion, when
I had a few leisure hours, and the
un was not too scorching, consist
ed in climbirIg to a narrow projee
tion on the lofty church roof, and
walking about there while I smoked
my cigar.
What a magnificon t place this old
church roof was ! Quite another
world than that which lay far below
mo-a region of rock and stone,
without vegetation or water, except
when it rained, and the gutters were
filled, in which case this special
realm presented little attraction. It
was a world where I had often in
dulged in star-gazing. I regarded
this airy region as my special pro
vince, yhere I reigned in solitary
majesty over my subjects, consisting
o fdaws and swallows-often a very
noisy and intolerable one. It excit,
ed in me a merry, perihaps soniewaat
boyish feeling, as 1 thought what a
look my superintendeut would put
on me when he heard of my ex-ur
sions in the narrow, gloomy towers,
between great grminmig stone heads,
fat cherubs, scaly dragons and gul
ters of zine, or on the pinnacles of
the towers, from which was present
ed a wide prospect over a pictur
esque landscipe.
Sometimes J. cliibed down in the
broad gutter in the middle of the
roof, fiom which nothing was to bo
seen above but the blue heavens and
the swarming ewallows, and below,
the broad paved church square, on
which, a hundred in twenty feet
beneath, the-people crept about like
ants.
It was during one of these excur
aions that the event occurred which
I will relate, and which thoroughly
cured me for several months of
ny desire for roof-linbing.
I must first inform you that,
around the outside of the cathedral,
just whore the roof termninated, ran
a smooth projecting edge, about a
foot wide. Under this, considerab'y
lower, just above the great eutrance
gate, was a huge stone projection,
which formerly supported a colossal
figure of St. Peter, holding a great
-iron lantern. Thie satLue had lang
ago disappeared, and half of the lPn
tern was broken off, so that what
was left had the appearance of an
arm chair without legs.
Standing on the stone eaves one
day, above this rolio of past centu
ries, the thought suddenly seized
me that it would be an amnuseiment
of a new and original kind to swing
myself down andi enfjo~y miy cigar in
thbis fantastic arm chiur.
Without hesitating a moment, I
turned around, kneeled down, seized
the eaves with convulsive grasp, and
'ma next instant was dangling ini
zmd-air over the abyss, more than
a hundred feet from the earth.
As I looked, in this uitiuation,
under me at the defective lantern,
I found that I was not directly over
it-indeed, it was too foet further
from the wall than I had thought.
This circumstance, however caused
me little anxiety. Giving myself a4
swing, by which I easily prese'ed one
foot against the building, I sprung
safely into muy resting place in the
broken lantern.
Here I sat a long time, smoking
my cigar, drumming with my
heels on the wall, and complacently
enjoying the cool of the evening and
the magnificent prospect.
The sun was setting before I
thought of undertaklng my return,
which I was especially induced to do
by the sight of one or two persons,
who were standing below and gazing
pat me.
It was not three minutes before
quite a crowd of people1 had gther
ed about them to enjoy the spectacle
of a man sitting in St. Peter's lan
tern.
"Hallo 1" thought I, "It is now
time to return!i Some one will find
out who I am, and then there will
be a prett gossip in the piace." But
I suddenly became aware that return
was not so easy.
My seat was so constructed that I
could'naot rise in my usual way.
The sides, of the lanterz were of
smooth iron -an s> ,hIgh. that I
ing loft me but to press my hands
upon the seat behind me, raise mv
self so, and draw miy legs after n"'C
until they could rest between my
hands and the lantern. Then I
could rise to miy full height, and
turn around on my own axis.
This way of raising yourself every
gymnuast knows and practices, but
every one knows, too, what an ex
ertion of muscular strength in
hands and arms is necessary in this
proceeduro, and that any mistake
would occasioni a failire-porhap ,
too, a fall below.
Now, there is a vast difference be
tweet) a bar erected on level ground,
and an iron lantern on the wall of a
church a hundred feet high, from
which a fall upon the reugh pave.
ment 1must have all abHluitCly fatal
effeet.
The more I considered my situa
tion the less it piened me, and
there I sat. and smiled feebly at the
ultitude below, dwhich increased
every moment, ashamed to cry for
help, or make known my fear.
"Well," said I to myielf, "if I sit
here any longer I shall lose every'
favorable chance to escape. It is
ludieroue to become bewildered, like
a child that h-s gone astray in climb
ing, quite aside fron the astonish
ment that the story must cause, if it
comeis to the o0rs of my p tvishioner-s
apnd supporters. Up, then! I will
close my eyes and act as if I were
peiforming on the soft turf of my
garden.'
In the space of a minute I stood
on my legs in the lantern, and won
dered at my foolish weakness, when
I observed, to my terror, that I still
had the most difficult part of my
undortacing to perft-rmu. Raising
my hands above my head to seize
the 'amooth stone eaves, I became
aware that they were at least a foot
and a half beyoud my reach. In
vain did I rise on my tiptoes and
stretch out my arms convulsively ;
it seemed highly probabie that I
should have to spend the night in
this situation.
This was truly no agreeable con
sideration ; for the seat was only
just large enough for me to sit up
right in it, and if I fell asleep, which
was possible, I should he precipitat
ed headlong upon the pavement.
Then they could collect my bones,
the next morning.
At this clitieal moment I was
rejoiced by the appearance of the
sexton on the caves. le had
missed me, and had come to seek
M0.
"Silbernin-an," I cried, interru pt.
ing his exclamnationa of astonish
nent, "I am, as you see, in a peculiar
dileimma, since I cannot reach the
eaves. You must help me. It is no
use to bring a rope, since you would
not have room to braco yourself. If
you bend down, however, and reach
tac your hand, you can exert your
entire strength, and raise me. You
are a power faul mn, and I am not
particularly heavy."
"Oh, sir, I am sure that I cannot
lift you ! he replied.
"My good man, you must !" I
a fssertd. "I cannot indeed pass the
whole night in this situ- tion, and,
moreo~ver, I might pack up my
bundle to-morrow immediately,
when this stupid story becamoe
known. Do not be foolish, there
fore, and give me your hand."
In reply the sexton crouched
down unwillingly, and stretched out
his hand, which I firmly seized with
both mine by the wrint, while I
awung mfyself out into midair. I feti
one or two convulsive jerks, and was
drawn up about half a foot, but
then at one let down again lie
couldI not raise mec.
I looked up. Such a visage as
met my gaze, may I never in my
lhfe see again ! It was pale as death;
the protruding eyes stared wvith tihe
expression of measureless terror into
the abyss beneath us, and a cold
sweat stood up)on his forehead.
"Lot go !" he cried. "Curses upon
you, let go I You will b-eak my
arm ! I can hold on no longe:, and
shall be dashed in rieces 1"
He wailed like a child, at this
moanmt of extreme p~eril. My hair
rose-my brain reeled. I expoetoei
myself every instant to plunge be
low. Mly desperation gave me cool
ness, and I was surprised at the
clearness and consistency with
which I spoke.
"Silbermnann " I said, "listen to
me, and cease, this unreasonable
clamor. I can feel that you are
gaining the counterpoise more and
more every successive second. If I
let go of you I shall perish ; if not,
we both will, and I assure you that
I shall not let go, as long as I can
hold on. You had better, there
fore, draw me up at once."
I saw that ho set his teeth togeth
or, and closed his eyes. Then fol
lowed a terrible exertion of strength
and I wus kneeling upon the eaves.
The sexton lay beside me im a deep
swoon. I now bore him carefully
through the trapdoor to the vestry,
and gave him watter, so that -he soon
recovered consciousness; but neith
er of us has over forgotten that
perilous adventure upon thme eaves of
the church roof.
As for myself, three months pass
ed by before I again trod . thi
almost fatal place, and you can easily
imagine that I avoided -St. Peter's
lalitern like Are.
The sexton kept the secret, assur
ing. Inquisitive questioers .that -an
eetbi E libse, jwuggli
throu.ghi the country, had taken his
meat inl tio hlnt.ern, an(d this version
of the story was currently believed.
Although the gymnastic manita
was not entirely frightened out of
me by this adveituire, it only re
inineld in a modified form, and I
h:.ve since confined iry athletic ex
ploits to places less perilous than
'the scene of those moments of ter
ror.
The Modo of D)eciarng the Vote for
Prosldent.
The counhy h rs long ago ceasedi
to feel astonishment it anything said
or done by President Grant. It is
prepared any morning to read in the
j.nrnals that he has reversod the
policy or recanted the professions
of the daty before. He is so used to
sc'oldingi and so much in the habit
of playing the. partisan, that his
violent tirade deliveredl to an agent:
of the Associatod Press a few days
since was looked upon as a matter
tf course. When lie admitted that
he viewed public events purely in a
party light and sought to shape I
them to sibservo party ends, every
body w1.s ready to acknowledge the
truth of the admission. Since the
Presideat discovered that lie was
not the choice of the people for a
third term, lie has aelod as if lie was
taking his revenge on them. He
has undertaken to regulato the in
ternal affairs of several Southern
States, soeking by the aid -if alien
satraps and troops and bayonets
and returning boards to guide their
popilar vote in the way it should
go. Only yesterday he came to the
front with some astouniding dechra
tions. Those hint pretty strongly
at the probability of civil war, but
likewise convey the assurance that
fte is vigilant ; that he has the power,
and will not besitato to use it if any
oceasion arise, to call out the militia
to supplement the regular army.
He refers to a precedent for the us3
of the national guard on an occasion
of civil dist:irbance.
What President Grant is driving
at is not easy to see. His position
andl his talk are equally ambiguous.
He says that he will pursue a cer
tin course in regard to the count I
of the electoral vote for President
That is plain enough. He will re
cognize, he says, and will cee placed
m possession of the government the
person who ;hall be declared by the
President of the Senate to have been
elected. He denies that he is the
judge of the election, but be will by
force of arms sustain the decision of
ono whom he makes the judge of it.
He thus jUlges the whole matter
which he denies that lie has any in
tention to judge, a1nd places the ulti
mate decision securely in the breast
of :an individual.
. Better than these threats
was t. :Cv acftion of the HIouse of Rop
reCnIatives, s(ole days ago, inl
adopting a resohition which provides
for t)e appointment of a committLe
to act with a commit-tee of the
SeuatC to devise romo method of
counting the electoral vote. It was
mzet in the Senate by a motion of
Mlr. Edamunds to refer it to a select
committee of seven Monators, with
p~ower to prepare aind report such a
mueasure as will secure a lawful
count of the electorsd vote and the
best disposition of all gnestions con
nected therewith, with po wer to con
(er with the [louse couanit.tee. On
MondIay this resolution was takeni up
and agreed to by a unalnimious vote
without discussion.
TrhisR is a plain indication that
both the tinate and Hlouse of Rlop
resenatatives approach thetsettlemnent
of this grave nmntter in a higher
spirit than the President dloes. It
is tantaunt to staying that has
modle of doing it will not be their.
modec. The coun try has had too
much of returning b~oards to now
put up with a return ig President
of the Senate, although ho may sur
rounded by the bayonets and be
acting under the orders of the Presi
dent of the Uuited States.-Colum..
