Elevator at Best Building
Alarms the Horse.
Two ladies. Miss Betle Reynolds'. re
biding near Tenth avenue and Fif
teenth street, and .Miss Hattie Hill,
tesidlng at IMS Fifteenth street, were
injured in a runaway accident this
afternoon at 3 o'clock at Seventeenth
street and Second avenue. The ladies
were run down and both sustained
more or" less severe injuries. Miss
Reynolds seems to bo the more seti
ouslv hurt, and it is believed that she
sustained internal injuries.

John McMahon was driving up Six
teenth street, when his horse, a smali
animal owned by John Lo.iney, be
came frightened at the elevator being
used in the construction of the new
Eest block. The horse lurched for
word, and its plunge caused one of
the reins to snap in two. McMabou
was unable to control the animal, and
i,- dashed on across Second avenue.
The two ladies were crossing Seven
teenth street, when the horse struck
Ibem and knocked them to the pave
ment, the rig passing over both.
Arc Kriuovrtl to lloiiiri.
People who saw. the accident hastily
lushed to the two prostrate young
women, and M. H. Sexton and others
carried them to the Bcngston drug
ttore, while physicians were lummoi:
cd. E. E. Reynolds, an uncle of Mis
Reynolds, and Electrician George Hill
of the police department, a brother or
Miss Hill, were soon on the scene,
mid the ladies were quickly removed
to their homes.
The attending physicians were -unable
to state just how seriously the
ladietr are injured, although Miss Hill
is stated to have suffered on!y bruises
and a severe shock. Miss Reynold
is considered to be seriously hurt and
possibly sustained internal injury.
McMahon jumped from the rig and
managed to control the horse with the
single strap that remained, but not be
fore the ladies had been run down.

BON TON Corsets. Elizabeth
A. C. Wirlle said in an address to the
dressmakers of Philadelphia: "'Bring me
any woman, be she fat or thin, talt or short, or
any size in between,, and I will, with a 'Bon
Ton,' a 'Royal Worcester' or an 'Adjusto,' take
out the lumps and the bumps, straighten the
curves, make herjiip-less and shapely. I will
instantaneously reduce the abdomen and hips of
any stout woman." -
After Ihe demonstration the Philadelphia
Record said: "She hardly knew herself when
Miss White got through with her. A click of the
buckles on the 'Adjusto straps and she "was all
in the corset"
The North American said: "She wedged
them into stays that looked like corset "ads" on
the back of a magazine. Miss White performed
miracles transforming fat appearing women into
veritable fashion plates, and then explaining the
secrets of the 'Bon Ton Corset.' "
