IN CITY AND COALFIELD
Was in Train Wreck
Miss Elizabeth Gwinn has returned to the city from a visit to friends in the middle west. While away Miss Gwinn experienced the sensation of being in a railroad wreck and finding herself in the centre of a Pullman car floor, with the broken headlight of an engine protruding through the end of the car. Fortunately the young lady was not seriously injured and as a result was willing to sign a quit claim presented to her by a claim agent, and was given a nice sum of money which helped her to enjoy her vacation, and which she never thought of receiving, especially while on her vacation.
[What a way to start a vacation!]
