Fat Woman Meets With a Sad Mishap While Trimming Vines.
Publishers’ Press Dispatch.
HANOVER, Pa., Dec. 22. — Mrs. Wm. White is very stout, weighing nearly 300 pounds. Yesterday while trimming vines, she stood upon a barrel. Her weight broke down the head and she fell into it. So tightly was she wedged in her wooden prison that the united efforts of herself and husband were not sufficient to release her. The husband was finally compelled to roll the barrel containing Mrs. White to a blacksmith shop, half a mile away. There the iron hoops were cut away and the woman given her freedom.
