Another Victim to Crinoline

is recorded in the London papers. Miss Maria Power, of Hyde Park Square, was standing before the grate in her father's drawing room, when her expanded dress caught fire and she was burnt shockingly, nothing remaining on her but her skeleton skirt. She died in great agony.
