t r*??. . el Skeleton of
the Skyscraper.
"See that big blob of scarlet paint?"
said tho engineer as he pointed to n
girder high up In the skeleton of the
now okyscraper. "That red spot means
that ono of the men working on tho
building was killed by tho girder
sweeping him off tho structure whllo
being put in position."
Tho visitor craned his neck and saw
a rough patch of vermilion paint on
one of tho lloor girders up on tho sixteenth
story. "It must bo a dangerous
life," he said to his engineering frleud.
"Yes. Those men up thero arc working
under tho chance of instant death
at any moment. They'll walk along
the topmost girder, 300 feet above tho
sidewalk?a llttlo path of slippery iron
Ave inches wldo?and will lean outward
against tho wind. You or I
'couldn't do It for a second.
"Now and again there's an accident.
A chap slips. A workor gets hit by a
swinging girder and flung off. Another
man takes an Incautious step and
falfs off into eternity. Tho men working
near by do their best get at him
if ho mauages to grab tire girder lie's
falling from, and thero are some swift
and reckless races with death to get
to their comrndo at any cost In the live
or ten seconds allowed them while
- strong Angers are sliding away from a

happens* and the man falls in Bplto of
their efforts. then they apply the dab
of red paint, and the Ironworkers call
It a day. They don't speak much of
tho mail thnt Is gone, as a rule. lie's
soon forgotten. Tho men consider It
"You'd think, by tho way," went on
the engineer, "thnt the higher up those
men worked the more careful they'd
become. They aren't particularly careful,
but they do guard against the
hypnotism of height. Ouo of the men
working on a high girder gets paralyzed
now and again by a sudden fear
that holds him motionless and still on
his Iron beam.
"The men look out for this sort of
thing, and the remedy Is to distract
his attention by a rough blow on the
