THE STEEPLE JACK.
He Must Conquer Many Difficulties In
His Dangerous York.
The successful steeple jack must
possess detrtaIn:itIon, perseverance
and ingenuity. lie must solve many
a practical problem ' In hoisting great
bodies aloft. He must know how to
fasten a hook over the summit of a
skyscraping chimney. He must have
the nerve to iaiot a steeple that sways
like a pendulum at the slender tcp. He
must be abie to tear down, build up,
gild, paint, place electric wires and do
many another task that would be
difficult enough on the solid earth.
There are many ways of getting tip
on a 6teeple, and when ail others fall
the man will tie a rope around it and
then, with a coil on his back, walk
round and round it until the entire
steeple is covered with rope, and in
such case he lins probably been round
It fully 300 times.
But a steeple is not the most diffi
cult height to climb. Straight, tall
chimneys are the hardest of alL There
a man has to work with might and
main to lift himself inch by inch from
the ground to the top. Sometimes the
top is .TOO fect hish. When it is reach
ed a hook Is placed over the edge, a
pulley is made fast, the swinging chair
is hauled up and work begins.
When the chair Is near the top it is
easier to work, because the ropes are
short, but when they lengthen as Tje
ground is approached there is a ten
dency to swin, and the wind gives
The steeple jack's safety depends
upon the hook, and until he has raised
himself almost to tht top it is impos
sible for him ii? sec wbethT or not the
hook has be-on properly adjusted.
More than once a steefie climber has
seen when within teu feet of the top
that corrosion of the Iron and the col
lection rf soot have so thickened the
wall that the hook is merely balancing
ou the top, so that the slightest pull
in the wrong direction would drag it
off. Again, the bricks are often loose
at the top, and the hook is likely to
tear them away.'
One of the nntcral difficulties to con
quer is the swaying of all high stee
ples and chimneys. In a gale a steeple
point will sway a foot and a half.
Usually it sways from seven to nine
inches. Fainting it means reaching
for a spot on the right side, and find
ing it on the left. and. when making
a dire for tt on the left, to see It sway
back to the right. Yet in spite of the
constant danger a born steeple jack ex
ults in his work and is at home, like
the Ironworker on the skyscraper, only
when high above the world. lie can
stand triumphantly at any height, if
he can have two and one-half square
inches to bear his weight. Harper's
