MIRACULOUS ESCAPE

Yesterday a young man named MATHIESON, a lather, belonging to Saltcoats, fell from a three-storey house near Five Roads, Kilwinning, and had a miraculous escape.

While carrying deafening he tripped, and fell off the plank to the ground, breaking three cement stones in his fall.

On examination it was found that he had lost a tooth, besides slight injury to his feet.

He was conveyed to Kilmarnock Infirmary.
