steam lannrtry at Twentythirdstreet anil First avenue met with a remarkable accident yesterday She superintends the laundry and when she reached the pluce yesterday she noticed tbat a window was down from thetdp and she got up to close it The driving shaft of the laundry runs across the room near tlie center and one of the wheels that turn with it is close by the window A screw projecting a little binds the wheel to the shaft Mrs Wilck sprang lightly on the window sill which was only two feet from the floor and closed the window Sculped in a Instant In stepping down she threw her head back slightly and her hair touched the projecting head of the screw One turn and the screw had a firm hold and ID another moment the woman was standing on the floor scalped Her soft thick black hair which she wore in a great coil hail been torn off entire with the skia and left ear She did not falut antf after the drat Kerentn she did not utter a sound She hardly felt any pain The shock was loo great She simply stood dazed while a little stream blood trickled down her face A Cliance for a Cure One of the women had stopped the ma chinery immediately and had taken down the scalp This was wrapped in a piece of paper and was taken to he hospital whither the poor woman had been tukiso There was just a chance the physicians in charge thought of saving the bair by grafting the scalp on again so after wash ing it in a warm solution he sewed it In place The woman will in all probabil ity recover he said but I am afraid the scalp will not grow on It was half an hour old when I got it and there was just enough chance to make it worth tryiiag The chances are that it will grow arouixl the line of suture and make the wound smaller but I fear that the greater part will die Slciti Grafting Perhaps Necessary In that case itwill form A line and drop ofT nnd we shall have to taku a piece of skin from another part of the body and graft it there That ciui easily be done If the sculp should grow on the hair will continue to grow but if we liave to graft skin there the woman will lose her hair At any rate the scalp make a good dressing for the wound SIXTEEN MULES CREMATED A COH Jit Fire Thiil

The fire was caused by Stableman John Skrogs Innip setting fire to a barrel of oil which exploded The hurtling oil scattered all nbout the underground stable Skrogs battled with the names but without
