A young lady named McConn . . .

. . . was saved from falling out of a second story window at Cohoes, N. Y., being caught hold of by the feet.  Her modesty was so much shocked by the liberty that a young man took in rescuing her in this style, that she left Cohoes the next morning and has not been seen since.
