The janitor of the building was
notified, and he found Frank Bra-

asleep on the ledge. , He promptly
dragged him from his perilous poei

to sleep in a similar place on the
20th floor of the Flatiron building.
. In explanation he says that great

but sleepy. He says be knows no

on many occasions be has taken a
nap, when he felt like, it, without
incident or accident.
When dragged ioto the room,
where he awakened to find himself
surrounded by a room and hallway

Bradenburg sleepily rubbed his ejes
