Darned fcy Electric Wire.
The little 6-year-old daughter of Wil
liam Bell, employed in a local lumber
yard, was severely burned and narrowly
escaped electrocution by catching hold ot
a loose wire hanging from the motor com
pany's trolley , line at First and Pierce
Linemen in the employ of the motor
company were making repairs and the
wire had been thrown over the heavily
charged trolley wire, with its end almost
reaching the ground. A piece of iron had
been attached to the wire and this at
tracted the curiosity of the child.
When the child grasped the piece of iron
the force of the current threw her to .the
ground and proved so strong that she was
unable to relax her arcs p. Her aister at
tempted to drag her away, but she also re-'
cetved a shock which threw her to the
ground. C. Hanscom happened to pass at
the time, and seeing the children's dan
ger hurried to tha rescue. He succeeded
fin loosening the child's' hand from "the
grasp ot the wire, lul waa severely
hocked in doing so.
The, child was removed to the home of
her' grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Dunlap,
at 128 Vine street, where medical assistance
was summoned. The little girl's hand was
badly burned, but it is hoped she will sus
tain no permanent Injury from the acci
dent, although when rescued from her per
ilous position her face bad become purple
from the effects ot the electiio shock, and
had she not been loosened from her hold
on the wire at the time she was it Is
