A Certous crinoline Adventure.
--A correspondent vouches for the truth of the following story:
On Sunday last, a young lady, expensively dressed, was in a garden within one hundred miles of the town of Bradford
She stooped to gather something, when her crinoline coquetted with a beehive that stood close by. On attempting to walk forward, the mischievous article, unwilling to surrender its bold, pulled over the hive, and an angry troop of bees came buzzing about the alarmed and unhappy fair one.
Clearly no time was to be lost, so, mustering up all her courage, she rushed to a pond in the enclosure, and plunged overboard, to shield herself from her exasperated foes.
As it was, however, the poor girl was very badly stung, and had to be removed to bed. It was expected that she would quite recover in a few days.-- Preston Herald.
