The San Francisco Small Boy. ^Tri ~a "TiM^y ig ht, ’’pretiy1 children in South San Francj^co— the father of whom is a well-known mechanic of this eity—exists a bright little boy, not yet three years old, whose exploits are somewhat remark ahi e.. ,.^LIis eccentricities, unlike most precocious children’s, do not seem to detract from his other qualities either of head or heart. Not long since, yet before "the little fellow was thirty’months of age, his father had occasion to look after some repairs at the top of a number of Hat-roofed buildings of several stories’ elevation. Tak ing the little one along with him and placing him on his coat at the foot of a ladder fastened perpendic ularly against the back of one of them, he proceeded to the roof to make investigation of the work to be done. This occupied moreTTime than he expected, but was finally completed, and just as he was on the,point of returning, judge of his surprise to see the little one’s head peering above the topmost round of ladder, and on a level with himself. To secure him and descend to the ground required no little command of nerve and exertion of muscle, but it was finally to 'his great joy, accomplished. A week or two after this occurance this little prodi gy of fearlessness was missing from the family circle. A most thorough search, under great pater nal anxiety, for a long time failed to discover his whereabouts. Fin ally, in passing through the street on which the above-mentioned buildings front, the object of so much solicitude was discovered sitting on the edge of a projecting cornice, dangling his feet about in a most unconcerned manner. By By dint of perseverance and tact the little wail was finally brought to terra firma in safety. To reach the perilous position in which he was found he had climbed the lad der on which he had made a pre vious exploit, walked over an eight inch plank in the face of a strong gale of wind to the second building, and either scrambled over or crawled around a high frontage of the cornice.— San Francisco Chron icle.
