One of the noted characters of Cincinnati the " Steeple climber died thursday night at Bis Home,-79 Bank Street. His name was Joseph Rodriguez Weston and for nearly thirty years he had been climbing steeples in this City. No Point was too High and Jedi by for him to reach and maintain is steady foothold. Of late years he would undertake Only those difficult feats that appalled others it was Hig pardonable boast that he could go As High or higher than any other Man. There Are Anjany a Lorie of his hazardous exploits in this City. The most notable probably was the draping of the Cathedral spire on the night following archbishop Purcell s death. In the ground below were 3,000 or 4,000 Pepple eagerly watching for a glimpse of the daring Man As the lightning flashes revealed him on the dizzy height. Weston when Only twelve years of age had placed the tip on the same Steeple. Another feat that was greatly talked about at the time was on the night of july 3,1876. Weston climbed the spire of the presbyterian Church on fourth Street the tallest in the City and nailed fast the stars and stripes 285. Feet from the ground it. Was on Thi occasion that by had a narrow escape. Weston had stained from Michie the jeweller Heafy Gold Chain the links of which were All solid. His Chain,.when he was falling held him for a Brief moment during which the climber succeeded in regaining his hold. Another time while Weston was removing the timbers from the Steb Leof St. Xavier which had been Burnt he was struck by a falling Rock on the head and slightly Hurt.
