Man He Afca-sulted, nnd Then Itoth Fall
in a Faint A Thrilling Seene Graphle
Peoria, III., Sept. 6. Two men fighting
n midair. This was the terrible scene en
acted on a massive iron tower being
erected by the water- works compnuy. The
tower wns up ninety feet, lt is built of
steel plates, which nr riveted together.
and two gnnc-i of riveters are at work, one
inside and one outside, the latter on a
scaffold which hardly looks strong enough
to sustain itself. To the beholder who
stands on the solid earth this outside scaf
fold seems to lie as thin, as frnil and as
delicate a n spider's web. There it winds
around the tall, black iron tower, frail lie-
low and dwindling away in the upward
distance into nothingness. Ninety feet
from the ground and on this frail
scaffold the two riveters were working.
A Ieadty liurst of Fury.
The riveters in question came with the
water works company from Syrmuie, X.
Y. One was Mique, the other Dennice.
Each man swung a seven-pound hummer.
Mique made a mistake and struck Den
nice on the band. Maddened by the sud
den pain, Dennice became at once a de
mon and swung his hammer full and fair
at. the head of Mique. Had the iron head
of the hammer crushed in those locks a
mangled and lifeless and half headless
corpse would have toppled down to the
solid earth, ninety fee"telow. Mique,
however, threw up his hammer in a de
fensive way and purried the blow.
The Scall'ol.l Gives Way.
Again the hammer of Deuuice swung,
and agaiu it whs parried, but as its head
carromed on the steel head of Mique's de
fensive hammer lt -shot off on a tangeut,
like a g!anciug arrow, that strikes a tree.
and knocked away one of the supports of
the scaffold. There was a sickening,
cracking sound as the frail upright wa-i
knocked away from the braces, ami down
went the ends of two planks compi-using
one section of Hie sct!T.lil. Mique, who
had been retreating fr.mi liefore the fierce
advances of IViinie.-, was on a tirm foot
n g, but iK'iinii e wns compelled to make
a giant-spring to s.ive himseli.
Amrer (iivra Place t Terror.
In the terror of the moment he leaped
almost to-the very shoulders of the nf-
frighted Miqieaiid knocked him down
hack ward, fulling on top of him. The
force of the concussion was such that lxth
men rolled to the edge of the scaffold, and
Instiuctively and in the desperation of
he moment he caught one heel in the
upright immediately behind him and
brew bis left arm around the neck of
Mique. There he bung on the edge of the
scaffold, suspended by only one heel and
wrist, while below bun nearly 100 feet
below was a row of iron pipes and plates
of steel. To fall was to I dashed to
Struggling f'r Llf
To fall on the pipes was to break arms
and legs and back. To fall on the curved
and upturned edues of the plates was to
le cut into huge and ghastly slices.
The man's hand trembled and bis bam
iner dropiM-d from his nerveless grasp. It
went swifilv downward, hit. a projection
in the scaffold, Isiumh-d off, and. striking
a llfteeu inch pip. broke it in two as
cleverly and as keenly ns if it had been
split with a knife. The hand swung over
and grasped Mique around the loins with
an awful tenacity, and there the men
struggled on the awful verge of the scaf
fold and at that dizzy height.
Saved by a. Miracle.
Dennice had almost managed to swing
bis weight on the scaffold when Mique's
hickory shirt ripped, and - back the man
went into space this lime losing the pur
chase of his heel and swing clear over, no
tbat he held himself only by one arm, and
hung suspended upright in the air. Mique
managed to thrust the toes of his left
foot betw-en the two narrow planks that
constituted the platform and thus ac
quired a leverage. 1 browing overth"
other shoulder, by a strong and almost
miraculous movement, he swung the sus
pended body of Dennice back to the plat
form, and dashed his face against the
Kearllon After the Strife.
There t hey lay, motionless aud still, and
vhen their companion reached them they
found that Isiih had f." in ted dead away.
flic awful duel had lasted less than forty
seconds, but there is mue on record that
can compete with it
Ten minutes later Dennice and Miuue
were hammering away at the rivets as
merrily as of yore.

A great many cases of rhea-
matism coma from Kianey
troubles, for rheumatism it is
now believed, comes from ure
mic acid In the blood caused
by defective 'secretion of the
kidneys. Reid's German Cough
and Kidney Cure will restore
these organs to their normal
condition and thus relieve an
ordinary case of rheumatism in
a week. Its effect is marvelous.
Rheumatism generally comes
with a slight cold and if it is
neglected, it grows worse and
worse. Many people Buffer
from this malady all of their
lives, who might have escaped
and been relieved if they had
only taken Reid's German
Cough aod Kidney Cure at the
outset After the system has
been racked and the joint9
have beguu to swell and deposits
of urate of soda or chalk stones
have set in, then the sufferer
hies to some mineral spring to
have the disease "boiled out of
him," if he be rich, or he hob
bles about on crutches and
bemoans his fate if he be poor.
Any ordinary case can be cured
in the start by a bottle of Reid's
German Cough aud Kidney
Cure if taken according to di
rections. The virtues of this
remedy are that it is a touic as
well as a specific for colds and
that it enables the stomach to
digests and assimilate its food
and this purifies the blood and
allays the irritation in the air
passages. This great remedy
is at once a tonic and a stimulant
without having anything in its
composition that is in the
slighest manner deleterious. It
can be left anywhere about the
house and'if the children get it
and take it, it will not' harm
them in the least.
