THE STEEPLE JACK.
He Must Conquer Many Diffiouities In
His Dangerous Work.
The successful steeple jack must
possess determination, perseverance
and tueenuty. He must solve many
a praent problem in hoisting great
bodies aloft. lie must know bow to
fasten a hook over the summit of a
skyscraping chimney. Ie must have
the nerve to paint a steeple that sways

gild, paint, place electric wires and do
many another task that would be
idicult enough on the solid earth.
There are many ways of getting up
on a steeple. and when all others fail
the man will tie . 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 has probably been round
It fully 300 times.
But i steeple is not the most dial
cult beIght 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 300 feet high. 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 the
ground is approached there Is a ten
dency to swing.,and the wind gives
The steeple jack's safety depends
upon the hook, and until he has raised
himself almost to the top it is impos
sible for him to see whether or not the
hook has been properly adjusted
More than once a steeple climber has
seen when within ten feet of the top
that corrosion of the Iron and the col
lection of soot have so thickened the
wall that the book Is merely balancing
on 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 book Is likely to
tear them away.
One of the natural 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.

inches. Painting It means reaching

a dive for it on the left, to see it sway

A Story of the Great Roman and a
Band of Pirates.
Caesar traveled with the retinue of a
man of rank. and on his way to
Rhodes he fel In with an adventure
which may be something more than
legend. When he was crossing the
Aegean. his vessel Is said to have been
taken by pirates. They carried him
to Pharma cusa, an Island off the Ca
ria costwhich was then in their
posesson, and there he was detained
for air weeks with three of his attend
ants, while the rest of his servants
were sent to the nearest Roman sta
tion to raise his ransom
The pirates treated him with polite
ness. H~e joined In their sports, played
games with them, looked into their
habits and amused himself with them
as well as he could, frankly telling
them at the same time that they would
The ransom, a very large one. about
10000, was brought and paid, Caesar
was set upon the mainland, near MIi
letus. where, without a moment's
delay, he collected some armed vessels,
returned to the island, seized the
whole crew while they were dividing
theIr plunder and took them away to
Pergamus, the seat of government in
the Asiatic province, where they were
convicted and crucified. Clemency was
not a Roman characteristic. It was
therefore noted with some surprise
that Caesar interceded to mitigate the
severity of the pnishmet The poor
wretches were strangled before they
were stretched on the crosses and
were spared the prolongation of their
torture.-James Anthony Freude

Marrying For Votes.
Marrying for votes was a device of
old time British election agents. As

election times widows were conse

a formal marriage with a voteless

Acres and Bible Letters.

there are more acrp-s In Yorkshire than~

The French Horn.
The French horn, or cor de chasse, is
regarded by some musicians as the
sweetest and mellowest or all the wind
instruments. In Beethoven's time It
was little else than the old hunting
horn, which for the convenience of the
mounted hunter was arranged In spiral
convolutions to be slipped over the!
head and carried resting on one shool
der and under the opposite arm. The
Germans still call It the weldhorn
that Is. "forest horn."
