Dropped From and Upper Window on
a Woman's Head.

Mrs. Mary Toman, of 725 Lyons avenue, Kansas City, Kas., was standing on the sidewalk in front of the Simpson building, Seventh street and Central avenue, Kansas City, Kas., at 8 o'clock last night talking with another woman. A quart bottle of milk which had been placed in the window in one of the living apartments on the second floor of the building to keep cool fell, striking Mrs. Toman on the head, fracturing her skull. She was knocked down and rendered unconscious. A physician was hastily summoned and had the woman removed to her home, which is only a short distance from the scene of the accident. Mrs. Toman is a widow and has several small children. Her husband was found dead several years ago under the Central avenue viaduct.
