Woman Blown Out of Window

Elizabeth N J Nov 22 -- When yesterday afternoon's storm came up Mrs. Florence Rose wife of Captain Walter Rose of the Atlantic Transport line who lives in Elizabeth was trying to get some lace curtains off a line. She leaned from a second story window taking them when a gust of wind caught the curtains and jerked the line so that Mrs. Rose was dragged out of the window. She struck upon the stoop of the house and then dropped into the cellar areaway. She was injured about the head neck and shoulders, and her injuries may be fatal.
