Narrow Escape. Tho Franklin fifposi
tory says, Capt. Calvin Gilbert, of this place
mad'o a miraculous escape on Saturday
afternoon last. While engaged in adjusting
a belt in his machine shop, on West Mar
ket street, his left foot was caught in tho
belting and drawn to tho ceiling, bis body
hanging down, the belting binding his leg
tight to tho shafting. In this position he
was whirled around some dozen times, but
had presence of mind enough, as he "swung
around the circle," to throw his head and
body out to prevent thein from coming in
contact with the joists above and somo ad
jacent pulleys on tho shafting, and thus
saved his life. As soon as bis critical situ

that his leg was very much bruised but no
bones broken, lie is now doing well and
will bo about again in a few days.
