The Injured Lancaster Girl.
MISS FITZGERALD, who is in a critical condition, is the daughter of Harry E. Fitzgerald, of No. 514 Woodward Street, and she was employed at one of the Farnum Cotton Mills. When Mr. Fitzgerald learned of his daughter's condition he went to Columbia and remained by her bedside today. While her condition is serious the physicians have some hopes of her recovery. MISS FITZGERALD was at the park with several friends, none of whom was seriously hurt.

Hospital Patients Improving.
Word received this afternoon from our Columbia correspondent states that the seven patients in the Columbia General Hospital are very much improved. MISS FITZGERALD'S condition has made such a radical change for the better that, if nothing unforseen occurs, she will in all probability recover.
