School Teacher's Close Call.

Newhall, Sept. 29. — [From The Times' Resident Correspondent.] Miss Mary A. Ward, principal of the Newhall school, had a narrow escape from being burned to death. While filling a small alcohol lamp some of the fluid was spilled over her dress. When she lighted the lamp the alcohol on her clothing was ignited, and in an instant her garments were ablaze. She had the presence of mind to smother the flames and escaped with no worse injuries than severe burns on her hands and arms.
