Mrs. Annie Edson Taylor, 50 years old, went over Niagara Falls on the Canadian side this afternoon and survived, a few never before accomplished and never attempted except in a deliberate commission of sucide. She made the trip in a barrel, Not only did she survive, but ascaped with out a broken bone, her only apparent injury being a scalp wound one and a half inches long, a slight concussion of the brain, some shock to her nervous system and brulses about the body.
