FAINT IN FRONT OF TRAIN AN ASTONISHING ESCAPE Of the many astonishing accidents and lucky escapes which have been re corded from time to time (says "The Daily News and Leader" of December 31), that which occurred to Lily Alden at Grimsby yesterday, probably holds a place of its own.

The driver applied the emergency brakes. and the train was brought to a standstill within a few feet of the un conscious girl.
