noonday whistle blew Monday NIcolo
Sarg-ls was working on the twenty
second floor of tin? building bcini,
erected at No. 11 East Twenty-sixth
Street by the Standard Arch Com?
To Nicolo that whistle always meant
but one thini??lunch. The wintry
winds Monday and his labor had Riven
him a very lusty appetite, so he looked
about for the quickest method of de?
scent. That was the hod hoist, which
was slowly passing his floor on Its
way to the basement. Nicolo jumped
"Going down," he shouted, and he
went?like a shot, faster than he had
ever gone before or ever wants to go
Nicolo shut his eyes In terror, or he
would have seen floor after floor flaf-h
by as his elevator shot downward.
His mad ride terminated abruptly
when the hoist struck a sand pile in
the basement with tremendous force,
and Nicolo began an upward Journey
in the air of abont twenty feet.
Then he came down again on the
sand and immediately advertised his
safe arrival by yelling at the top of
his lungs. Other workmen picked him
up and when the ambulance came
from Bellevue it was found that the
ankle on which his weight rested when
the hoist struck was badly fractured.
Nicolo was placed in Ward 3 at the
hospital, where it was said last night
he was resting comfortably.
