A. dncludine M eiu ou..-r- x - postaje) ow Payable Invariably in Advance THRILLING ELEVATOR STORIES. Some Adventures During the Building of the Washington Monument Washington Star. The elevator man of the "Washington monument recently told the following stories: "One day when I was coming down an empty barrelfell from the top landing. I heard the cry from above, and knew that something was coming. I directed my passengers to crowd into the middle, where the elevator was most protected from above, and when the barrel struck the top nobody said a word. There were several ladiea aboard, but they didn't seem a bit frightened. At another time, when the elevator was at the top and the men were unloading a stone, a crowbar was twisted from the hands of the man who was using it and dropped down the well. We gave the signal and when the bar reached bottom there was nobody there to catch it. It went down like a shot, and a plummet could not have swung straighter. It went clear through the platform at the base and made a hole about six inches deep in the asphalt at the foundation. "Once an iron sleeve weighing seventy or eighty pounds fell while the ele ator was at the top. The cry of warning cleared out those at the bottom of the wll. find it strnnk on a hn:tttl linnn which some passengers had len stand- : l t . , v..r.-,v i i mg umy a, lew ujuiuciils Lroiuitj. vmj two men were hurt during the entire time that the monument was being built. j In zoinsr down a sten-lad.ier in the dark I at the landing, near the top, one of the workmen missed nis lootinsr and iell tc the landins' onlv a few feet, breakine his arm. It was a curious accident, foi the man was perfectly familiar with all the surroundings. At another timo the hand-railing at one of the landings gave aw.iv with a man who was standins upon it fixing the electric lights. Fortu- nateiy ne ieu ine ngnt way, ana lanaed on the platform, the result being only a sprain. Had he gone down the well death would have been certain, for ht was at a height of 200 feet. I don't believe theTe was ever a structure built calling for such danger ous work with such an uninteresting chapter of accidents. Everybody con nected with the work knew just how things were being done and what care was being taken by those in charge, and that if orders were obeyed every thing would be all right. I have run the elevator when the key stone was suspended directly over me. Had il fallen it would have been the end ol me and the monument, too. I had no fear, however, for I knew it couldn't tall; there were too many safeguards, and the men were too careful." A Califoru a Grain Kano u ( hcyg Journa:.J A grain ranch in California was visited by a correspondent, and de scribed as a sample of the farms of the region. The house, standing undei Vroad nut trees, was plain, partly ol logs boarded over, but roomy and com fortable in that climate, though it would he thought rough and ricicetty for a ew Lngland farmer. ' The parlor has a brussels carpet, piano, haircloth miuHure ana pictures; tne ramiiy room and guest chamber have heavy, good arpets and old-fashioned mahogany, dating years ahead of any 'art period. The family live well, taking three news papers and a magazine for the children. a he wife has her silk gowns and gold watch, her gilt china and solid silver ware; but the ranch is seven miles from any village, and she has not been o3 the place for five years or had a visitoi m that time."
