This man of Syra cuse falls from tho uppermost peaks of skyscrapers; not with any malice aforethought, not with any craving for fame or the world's npplauso, but Just because ho has formed the habit and can't break himself. Ills name Is John .tefl Inn Tin lm. gan his enrcor as a human parachute In a modest, unassuming sort of way In noohostor. Ho fell from a scaffold, bung from tho third story of tho Wild er building. He was out of a Job nt tho time, and contrary to ordors, sonlcd tho walls, and was hobnobbing on tho narrow ledgo with a palutor whon ho tubbed his toe .over n pall of whlto lead and dopartod the scaffold with no word of farowell. Thero was a large, gonorotis-bosomed sand pile waiting to receive him. Ho landod In tlio midst of It, and picked himself out an blithely as If ho had Just shot the chutes for tho first time. That was tho first demonstration Hint there was somo special providence watching over McGinn nnd his stutter ing foot. Ho rotlred for a time after that, and did not appear as a budding tank-drama tragedian until noarly n year lator. Then ho foil from an oil dorrlok down In the Urndford fields. That was tho only tlmo when his poor, mlsmatod foot could not legitimately receive all the credit for the flight of sixty feet. They picked him up for deud. nnd carried him to the pump station. In Just half an hour ho begged for, nnoth or try nt tho laddor. and was hurt whon they told him to go home and call It a day. Tho next morning he climbed thov ladder.' McOlnn's next aerial dlvo was In Buffalo, where ho had wandered from tho oil Holds nnd found work on ono of tho now office buildings going up thoro. His ponder ous feet refused to track whllo their owner wns crossing a plank laid over an nlrshuft. Tho plonk heaved and MoOInn dlsnppeurcd. His flight bognn at tho eighth story and continued to tho fourth, where the speed of his fall wns broken by two planks strotched across the shaft In n inn tin or similar to the one ho had left. Tho collision swerved him from his aoiirse. and he struck tho next landing on his feet and rested. When thoy reached him ono nnklo was sprained severaly, his hand was bruised where he had fallon on It, and Ills face was scratched; but those wero the only evidences of his lllght. and he reoovored In tlmo for nu other Involuntary but brllllunt exhi bition In Syracuse.

For eight stories he kept It up, bounding from one steol rk to an other llko a huge squash ball. Ha had mlRMcd his footing and gono down feet first. The fifty or moro workmen on tho building saw him going, nnd all hold up their hands In horror no he shot past. His body, buffeted from ouo beam to another, still kept perpendicu lar, nnd was swinging llko a pendulum whon he shot past tho last pillar down Into the open space which divided tho basement from the first floor. Tho last HB IS USUD TO THIS, jump threw him Into a horizontal po iltlon. nnd he lunded squarely on his aok on a big heap of rubbish. No one s-ho saw him fall doubted for an tn itant but that he had been killed long lefore he landed.

He entered tho' building, and by keeping close to tho floor ho found the lever of the condenser and shut off the pressure W lie n he reached the man he found him lying on his back, his head and all the upper part of his body so badly frozen that It soemed to have been burned.
