Miss Elvira Slavens, who broke both of her limbs in jumping from the second story window at the home of Governor McGrew Friday night while in a somnabulistic state, is getting along as well as could be expected. The bones of her right limb were set by the attending physicians Saturday. It was the intention to set the bones of the other one today. The bones of the left limb were very badly shattered.
