A THRILLING FIRE STORY. D
ale of the Daring Rel'lcue ' of a Wound"
ed Fireman by a Brave
Comrade
Pearson's Magazine recentld
had a thrilling fire story , by Mr.
John Austin Sdlett ' . drumatie
rescue is described as follows :
(1'1hcro : was It sudden tear und
crack ! 'il1inmH , looking ttp , saw
thht the heavy elevator tackle
had burned from its fastenings ,
and was coming down with all thc
impetus of its 15 stories' drop !
Penficld , unheeding , choked with
anger , leaned out farthcr.
"Look out , man ! ' cried \Villiams. ,
The men with one impulse drew
buck as the thing came down like
a whirlwind and fell , a tangled
mass of cable and chain , fur below.
Penlleld had disappeared ! For a
i fecol1d ) every ; otie gazed at the
window in dismuJ'
"Did it take him down with it ? "
asked Hickey , voicing the fears of
the rest.
'
, "No ! " cried \Yilliams , in sudden
comprehension } , "but it's knocked
him on the head into kingdom
come Hc's lying in that room , I'll
bet ! And that fire will bc at him .
in a minute ! " The others stood
appalled. There was no vay to I' '
get across that yawning ; space. To
seek a way through the rooms !
would take too much time
"Kecp Jour stream under that
window , " commanded the captain ,
suddenly "Here , give me one ot
those ladders ! " Then they fathomed -
oIlled his purpose as he sought to
lay it from window to window. It
was to short ! "The other , quick ! "
be cI'ied. It just measured the dis-
tance. Another moment and he
was on it , crawling on hands and
knees ' to the rescue of the : man ,
w'Iio had reviled him but a fe v
moments before. He got to the
window and speed inside Ris
foot touched something soft. It
was Penficld ! The floor was hot
beneath him. -
"Here , Penfield , are you hurt ? "
he asked , lifting the prone figure
to It half-sitting position. For ! answer .
SWN' the othel"s head rolled list.
l.esslJ' , while his smashed helmet
fell to the 11001' Time mUll was in
sensible , with a vicious cut above
his eye from which the blood
flowed. But for the helmet be
would have had a broken skull !
\Vi1liams saw that lie would have
to carry him , and promptly set
about it. By herculean effort , of
which he was little conscious in
the excitement of the moment , he
got the wounded man on his back
with his arms about his , neck.
Then hc slowly clambered on to
thc ladder When the others saw
the two , they gasped. Williams
had to be very l'arcfullest his bUl"
den , swinging to one side , would
precipitate them both ten stories
below It was only u space of ten
feet , but it seemed un infinite time
before it was nearly covered. The
rungs of the ladder cut into the
rescucr's knees as he slowly
worked his way over , but hc held
on liKe grim death ultil-he thers
reaching him , drew Pcnfield in to
saf ty. "
