The Miraculous Saving of a
Woman's Life After Passing
X WONDHRKUL THANM'OItMATION
(New Yotk World J
This is the story of tbo miraelo of
medical scionco und cnilurunco by
which a yunng woman, who wan, boilod
alivo, who lost both eyes, eyelids, ecalp
and bauds, nod has safforcd more than
tho agonies of death, has boon restored
to comparative! health and good looks.
Tho young woman is Mrs. Qortrndo
lialdwln, of Yonkora. Sho was horribly
injured and mutilated iu tho
railroad collision at IlastiDus,
N. Y on Ohrietmas Evo, 1801. No
human being has over beforo been so
horribly mutilated and lived. Fifty
thousand dollars, tho largest sum over
paid by an American railroad company
for injuries to a siuglo porsou, was paid
to her in settlement for her injuries by
tho Now York Contral Railroad.
At tho time of tho oolllson Mrs.
IJaldwin was SO years old, a gracofal
and lovoly woman, auburn-hatred,
ond the brido of a year. Tho
accident wrought n terriblo transformation.
Hho was crushed by heavy
timbers and tcaldcd by steam from tho
engine. The skin and llesb of tho head
was boiled off; over tho parietal bones
thcro was a placo bbout tho sizo of tho
hand entirely bared to tho white skull,
whero tho young womau had been literally
scalped; tho oyclids were boiled
off, and bo was tho skin of hor faco
down to tho noso; tho cartilaginous
parts of both cars were gone, only
email stums remaining on oithor sido
of her mntilatvd head; the flesh of hor
neok ond loft shoulder blado was boiled
off, and tho left shoulder blado
sho bad fallon at tho timo of
tho collision with her arms over hor
head, and tho arms were boiled ontircly
from the forearms to tbo points of tbo
fingers; it was necessary that both eyes
should bo removed, and that tho left
hand should bo amputated and all but
tho thumb of tho right band.
Yet to-day tbis woman is a
prrton, with vestiges of her former
beauty. Sho lives tho lifo of tho ordinary
woman of wealth; sho attends
social gatherings and receptions, and
entertains in her pretty homo on Highland
avenue. Sho wears diamonds,
and dresses handsomely A curly
brown wig covers tho sculpless head and
tho places where tbo eats wero; bluo
glaiscs hido tbo cavities; cosmetics
mako her faco sigbtly whero the skin
grafts havo grown. Her pretty mouth
and chin nro uninjured. On tho thumb,
which is all that remains of her right
hand, sho wears a fine solitaire ring, and
tbo stump of her left arm is bidden beneath
tbo loco of her slcove. She goes
to church. Sho is seen out driving on
pleasant days. Sho has onoo been to

blunder of a brakeman of tbo Niagara
train who failed to display tbo signal
in tbo roar after tho train stopped,
tho Oinoinnati and St. Loais express
crashed into tho Gibraltar at full speed.
Mr.Baldwlnhad gone into tho smoker
to light a cigar, and was not injured.
Mr. Policy was tho first takon ont; ho

mother was next rescued, but she immediately
died. Miss Baldwin, when

Tho hospital surgeons bolievcd that
death would end her agony during the
night hours. But in tho morning tboy
found bor still alivo,
oouragoous, onduring with a vitality
and spirit that scarcely seomod possible
in so frail a woman.
Thon began tho fight of ecionco for
hor lifo. For days hor lifo hnngby a
feoblo thread. But tho pationoo of
soienco was infinite.
Sho was swathed in tho softest surgical
cotton; sho lay upon bags of ico;
abo was givon hypodormio injootions
constantly to keep up tho aotion of tho
heart and to allay tho intense pain; hor
wounds wore drossod evory low hours
in antiseptic dressing fluid, and sho
was bathed in tho dressiog fluid.
In a few days tho blackened and
swollen skin began to slough off, until
tbo upjMsr layer wan gone, leaving tho
surface raw and blooding; putrefaction,
and so; on January 1, tho operation
was performed without them, Mrs.
Baldwin bearing tbo pain calmly, and
conscious that it was bnt ono of a series
of torturing ordeals which sho would
bo compelled to nndorgo.
Hor left band was amputated just
abovo tho wrist, in tbo hope of saving
as mnch of bor arm as was possible; sho
know that a second amputation would

Tho injuries to her head gave hor
groat agony; the snrgoons feared that
tbo inner plate of tbo skull might have
boon injured, and that the gathering
pus, in that ovont, would causo congestion,
which would have been fatal.
It was found necessary to, amputate
hor left hand wbon all the flesh had
boon sloughed from the fingers, leaving
the bones bt.ro.
Tbo nso of anaesthetics wonld have
been dangerous in her feoblo condition.
Tho skull was white and chalky whoro
exposed. Tho mental shock of tbo
night of horror, combined with her
physical agony, wero finally too much
for hor wondorful nervo, and for a timo
hor brain was seriously affected; sho
had hallucinations, and thcro was a
probability of permanent insanity.
Within 0 few weeks buo had wasted

Bui tbo most terrible ordeal of all
was yot to como. Dr. Sohopon had
told her, threo weeks of tor thoaccidont,
that sho would havo to loso her oyos in
order to savo hor lifo. The oyolids had
beon boiled off, and as there was no
way of supplying nature's protection
and lubrication to the eyeballs, tbo
oyos bad become terribly swollon and
inflamed. Tbo tortures of pain sbo
suffered from thorn sapped her feoblo
strength, and her ohanoo for life was in
having both oyos eat out. Day by day
tho sight faded from them, and finally
she bocamo totally blind. It was impossible
to delay tbo oporotion longer,
for tbore was gravo danger of blood
poisoning or erysipelas, snob was tbo

Dr. Petor Oallan, and Dr. Scbopon
agreed that probablo sho wonld

Day by day sho gained in strength,

an important journalistic change:
"Tho New York Snn weakly edition
suspended publication yesterday. People
had stopped taking it. It is understood
that arrangements have been
completed, whereby the daily edition
will con tinuo to appear,"
The Evening Post has before commented
on the decay and tho gradual

havo tried to postpone tho day of doom
by substituting the and tho
tri-weekly editions for the old

it Is not salvation.
The Weekly San was six or eight
years ago perhaps tho loading Demo
cratic weekly of tho country. Its de-
clinoisduoto two causes; first to its'
chango of position toward tho Democratic
party, bat secondly and chiefly
to tho fact that tho country at largo is
outgrowing the political weekly.

throughout tho West and South, tho
journals called the rural press, have
greatly improved in all rospeots. These
newspapers givo in a condensed form

A Good Background.
One groat differenoe between men of
equal capacity and opportunity is to be
found in tbo background of their lives,
Ono man goes to his work in tho morn-inn;
from a . pleasant home, and from
the delightful- atmosphere of mutual
consideration and lovo. Another's
homo surroundings and family relation
ships are not congenial or inspiring.
Is it surprising that ono man addresses
himself to his tasks with a zest and
nervo that mako work easy, while tbo
othor finds that things drag' on bis
bands, and that ho is soon worn out?
Ono of tho secrets of many a man's success
is tho background of a happy
homo life. And many a good man has
failed; not becauso he lacked in ability
or enorgy, bnt because tboso who stood
in tho most intimate relations to him
wero too stupid or nncongenial to make
his homo lifo winsome Of courso men
have triumphed over tbis obstaclo just
as they havo triumphed over others,
but the forco thoy expended in overcoming
such drawbacks is just so mueb
subtracted from tboir efficiency in the
work of lifo,

What Olevoland did for tho rest of
tho country in 1804, Carlislo has done
for poor old Kentucky in 1805. Ho has
carried ont the mandates of his master
and prevented a silver man from boing

down the pillars of his party ho has destroyed
himself, strong man as ho is,
in tho general wreck. Tho scone has
changed the drama of 'SO. Tbo exit
of Jno. G. Carlislo as a Presidential
quantity marks thoadvont ofWm. O.
Bradloy as a possibility for second

all of tho credit for splitting the Democratic
party.and delivering-its leaders
bound and gagged into tho hands of
tho Philistines. The Courier-Journal,
once the organ of stalwart Demooraoy,
has done a double part in the great
work of wiping out a majority of 40,000

A Narrow Escape.
(San Francisco Post.
"Whilo you're aro talking about nar
row escapes from horrible deaths, just j
let mo toll mino," remarked a well-!
known capitalist. "I had about as
tough an experionco right in this city
as o man over bad, but I got out
all right, and few people over heard
"Ono day I was up on a roof of a
building I own on Pino street, just
looking it over to seo that it was all
right. I climbed up and looked into
one of tho big water tanks in the
building, and seeing a dead sparrow
floating on the surface of tbo water,
bent over to tako it ont. -I lost my
balance and fell in. The water in tbo
tank camo right up to my chin whon
I stood on my feet, and the top of the
tank was throe feot my head.
Tbo water was running all tho timo,
and I could seo that it usually stood
about a foot higher than where it was.
It occurred to me that unless I got out
protty quick, or turned off the water,
I would be drowned.
"I Boon found that getting out with
out help was noxt to impossible, so I
got out my pocket wont to
"Work cutting a hole in tho tank as low
down as I could work and keep my
head above water. Cutting through'
tbrco inches of pine was no easy job. I
Tbo water was slowly rising, and
fore I got a holo through tho sidn of
tbo tank I was standing tip-too with'
just my noso out of the water and ,
every blado broken out of my knife, j
"I mado a holo big enough so that
tho water ran right down to its level. '
And the next thing whs to get out. It
was impossible to climb out without assistance,
and I couldn't cut my way out
with a broken penknife I knew I
must attract somo one's attention. I
pulled off my shirt, toro It into strings,
tied my lead pencil to my knile and
both to tho too of one of my shoes, and
then patting my undorshirt on the
pencil, waved it slowly and laboriously
over tho top of tho tank. I waved for
hours, and still nobody came.
"Thenjt ocourred to me to dlvo
down and stop up the pipo loading
from tho tank to attract attention. It
wasn't half an hour till people came
up to seo why tbo water wonld not
run, and I was helped out after I had
been standing in tho cold water over
Nature's Beverage in Kentucky.
A weary teetotaler riding along a
dusty whito hot turnpike In Kentuoky
came to a farm house with a wellawecp
in the front yard and a man sitting in
tbo shade by the gate. "Good day,"
sainted the traveler; "can I be accommodated
with a drink hero? I am very
thirsty." "Certainly," was the hospitable
response. "What would you like
to -have?" "Nature's beverage, of
course," replied the teetotaler, somewhat
shooked. "All right," said tho
native, taking a bottle of corn juico
from his pocket and handing it over,
"Tb ore's about a pint in tbero and
plentymore in tbo house. Help yourself."
Hore is a problem takon from an exchange
that our mathematical friends
may try to solve: ""Three negroes
stole a sack of apples and hid them in
a barn. After tbey had retired, one of
them concluded he would got up and
tako bis share. He counted tho apples
and found be could divide thorn equally
by throwing ono away, which ho did.
After he had gono anothor wont for the
same purpose. Ho throw ono away and
took one-third of the remainder. Wnen
he was gone the third man came, threw
away one and took one-third of the
When they awoke in the
morning noithor told tbo other what he
had done, but they throw ono away and
divided the remainder equally. How
many apples woro in tho sack at tho beginning?"
