Fatal Fall of a Widow

Mrs. Sarah Ketcham, a widow, entered a clothing store at Grand Rapids to buy clothes for her children, and met with a fatal accident. She leaned against a pile of clothing upon a counter which rested against the top of a stairway. The clothing slid off the counter, causing her to fall backward down the stairs. She died in a few minutes.
