The crowd stared at one another with awed eyes. Nobody could think of anything to do. Then all of a sudden, boys, an idea occurred to me. “Fetch me a rope!” I yelled. Somebody fetched a rope, and with great presence of mind I flung the end of it up to the old man. “Tie her round your waist!” I yelled. Old man Hankinson did so and I pulled him down.’”
