Her right side was terribly bruised. She will" recover. y Mrs. Coe lives on the fourth floor. Returning, she found the elevator boy, Edgar Cardln, a negro, answering the hall telephone. She was In a hurry to get to her rooms and started the elevator herself. As she passed the third floor Mrs. Coe feared that she might have trouble in slopping the car at the fourth floor and took Hold of the cable. She got too near the door of the ascending car, and he dress caught.

" It won't help any to swear." said Mrs. Coe, trying to smile down at the men when one of them ripped out a few oaths because the head of a bolt broke. The door was finally taken off and Mulroy climbed up into the car and helped Mrs. Coe out of her plight. She fainted immediately.
