FELL THREE STORIES.
Child of WUHnm Doughorty of Dun
daff Street Tumblea from Window
nnd Fractures Thigh Narrow
Escape from Death.
Tho two-year-old child of Mr. and
Mrs. William Dougherty, ot upper Dun
1I11IY street, tumbled out of a window
In the residence at noon yesterday,
falling to the basement about three
stories below. The little one's thigh
was badly fractured, It's body was
fearfully bruised and It's frail system
was most severely shocked.
Tho child's escape from a 'fracture
of the skull or even instnnt death Is
not shoit of marvelous. The explana
tion for the absence of futul lniurles
Is Unit the child In falling made one or
more revolutions during the descent.
The little one fell forward and should
have landed on Its head If It had not
turned about, which brought It on it's
side, breaking the force of the fall.
This accounts for the bad fracture of
Dr. J. J. Thompson was called to
attend the. little sufferer. His exam
ination revealed the Injuiles mention
ed. The recovery of the child is not
assured by any means, and there is
no foretelling the result for a day or
two. There Is danger ot brain fever
developing owing to the severe con
cussion. There was liou.se cleaning In progress
at the Dougherty home when tho dis
tressing accident took place. The
household goods were removed from
the rooms and the child strayed to the
opened window and had tumbed out
before Mis. Dougherty was aware of

Moral, regards with mingled indigna

Swingle in causing ills arrest on the
charge of wounding him. Moran, in
explanation, dechues that, if anybody,
Swingle Is the one liable to arrest and
prosecution. The deputy constable,
the Carbondale man says, began shoot
lug at the crowd of ilshermen from
this city before he came close to them
and before any attempt had been made
by him to anest any of them. The
shooilng, sMoran persists, wus unpro
voked and unwarranted. The man who
had been arrested by Constable Robin
son made no resistance, and none of
the others had any chance to resist or
make any show Ing of force to call for

by Swingle. If Swingle Is determined
to prosecute the wounding charge,
