A por tion of his bead was severed and fell to the ground floor. A sister of the unfor tunate young man, who was attracted to the elevator shaft by her brother's agonizing cries, got there just in time to see the top of the skull drop. Without knowing that the mass of flesh and hair was that of her brother, the young wo man swooned. A father and another sister were also employed in the mill. The boy's body was jammed so tightly between the third floor and the elevator that it was necessary to pry it out with a crowbar and a sledge hammer. Four hundred females are employed in the mill and the shocking accident had such | an effect on them that they had to be 1 dismissed for the day.
