A PERILOUS ADVENTURE. The Newark Advertiser tells this start ling story of an adventure in that place: “St. Patrick's Cathedral has a steeple surmounted by a hall, on which is a cross. The top of the cross is two hundred and fifteen tectabove the surface ofthe gronnd, the height being but five feet short of that of Bunker Hill Monument. The ste.eple is ot wood, square at the base and taper ing to At point. Along each angle, from the base to the point, are nailed, at the distance of four feet apart, ornamental knobs of wood. “All ibis wood work, being weather beaten, in the course of time lots ; especi ally the nobs and the cross, which present many small angles; so that it becomes necessary to attend now and then to the repairing of these parts. To erect a stag ing for the purpose when a man of suf ficient daring and coolness might climb and do the work, would not be the most economical method. Such men are rare, but they are to he found. The price charg ’d for each ascent is usually about twenty live dollars. The risk does not consist merely in the danger of becoming giddy and demoralized while clinging in mid-air to the outside of a steeple, and while the neighbors and the passers-by are collect ing in grou ps below and gating upwards, w ith baled breath and trembling knees, at 1 he climber, lie must go up by clinging foot and hand to what he finds: and what lie must cling to am these very knobs, rotting and weakening in the weather, and finally to the cross, already decayed and almost ready to drop. The man who docs this sort of work iu Newark is Mr. Frank Jacobus. One day last month he was engaged to make an ascent of the cathedral steeple for the purpose of removing the old cross and replacing it wfrh a new one. Going up inside the steeple to the highest admis ~ i 111 * * point lie reached out from the nar row window and lelt one ot tlie knons to i lest its strength. Judging it to be strong I enough he swung himself out by it, and . scrambling up caught hold of the next I higher knob and re-tcd llis feet upon the : lower one. So far all right. He glanced around him am! then looked tip along the line ot knobs that reached far up to tlio , ball and the cross, making his hazardous way. It was something ot an experiment. Were the other knobs, too, strong enough? ( arelull v and quickly he scrambled up and tell of the knob next higher, it seemed to have siiilicient strength. He pulled up on it. It bore his weight, and up lie went. Gathering confidence, he made his tests and drew his conclusions rapidly. He went up more and more quickly, at last scarcely caring to try the strength of the knobs bclore trusting his weight to them. Already two-thirds of the steeple were climbed. A few more efforts and his hand would be clinging to the cross. ‘•lie reached forth to raise hitnself. A 'light scraping sound reaching his keen car. even in the breeze blowing strongly | about hi- ears. The knob had moved un | tier his pull—was giving way. A mist spread before bis eyes He felt himself tailing backward. With a convulsive effort 'that lamed bis back, he clutched at some | thing and brought himself forward again, and down lie slid, llis presence of utiud | had not on e left him. lie even tested the : knobs as he slid over them, to see where he might trust to stop himself with the mo mentum of his falling. Gradually lie even lessened the momentum. Then he fasu-u I ed lii> grip upon a knob. It held him, and | be was safe. The sigh that went up from | the observers in tlie street below almost reached his quickened ears, and it grew into a shout. He was not demoralized.— He might have come down and given up '[the job. Xot so. llis purpose to go up to the cross was not changed, llut he could : no longer trust himself to the knobs on I that angle of the steeple, lie must get across to the next augle. lie tried to reach, Imt the knob was just beyond his utmost stretch of foot or hand. ••Tlio observers below were looking on j in breathless suspense. They saw him go up higher, almost to the very spot whence lie had fallen, and then at last reach out I and swing himself across, lie was now 011 another anglci clinging to an untried i place and looking up the long line of us tested knobs. He went tip more carefully, 1 c — - rapivlv than before, trying every knob wt ll before trusting his weight to it. Soon he was at the ball. Grasping that, he slid himself up over it and sat himself | down on it, with his feet on either side of i i he cross. There lie waited awhile, though j he seemed still to be busy. Then raising ; himself to his feet, he stood beside the cross. With llis hand lie broke it piece meal, and threw the pieces down, aud they fell into fragments as they touched the stone walk. Then he descended, and in a lew minutes was on the ground again, to be surrounded by some oi the observers. House For Sale.
