FELL INTO A WELL.
Young Lady in Pickens County Had
A Miraculous Escape From
Miss Mattie Chapman, daughter of
a well known citizen of Piekens
countj, fell into a well of forty flie
feet deep with five feet of water in
it last Sunday. By a miracle the
young lady escaped serious injury.
The following from the PickeI
Sentinel Journal tells of the narrow
escape of Miss Chapman:
"Mr. Chapman tells that the day
before his daughter Miss Mattie, aged
about 19, went to the well to draw a
bucket of water. There was a sliding
,door to the top, and the box was bad
ly rotted. .As Miss Mattie was reach
ing to seize the bucket the entire top
of the well gave away, and fell in. car
rying the young lady with it. The
well was forty-five feet in depth, with
five feet of water. At the time of the
-acident Mr. Chapman was sitting out
,on his piazza reading. He saw his
daughter start to the well with a
bucket, and when he heard the noise
caused by the giving away of the well
house knew that Eometlhing had hap
"One can imagine the father's
feelings when he reached the scene of
the accident and glancing down into
the depths saw his daughter's peril
ous position. At first he did not
know whether she was killed or not
by the fall. He asked her if she was
3*uch hurt. The answer came back
that she did not think she was harm
ed much. The rope windlas and buck
et were left intact, and Me. Chap
man next inquired if she felt able to
be drawn up, or must some one go
down for her. The brave young
lady told her father to hurry up and
carefully lower the rope and bucket
and she could ascend unaided. This
was done, and planting her feet in the
bucket and holding on to the rope
Miss Mattie was safely landed on
terra firma. She was shivering with
cold, having been completely immers
ed in the icy water, but with this ex
ception not the slightest harmed-the
water having broken the force of the
box on which she was carried down.
'Had the well been - dry, she
would have been seriously injured if
not killed. After changing her
clothes and lying down a short time
)Iiss Mattie resumed her domestic
duties, as if she had not so recently
ta'ken the frightful paraehute leap
into the well and an immersion in
!that chilling water.''
