Fort Worth, Tex., Feb. 3.---Duncan Cameron, a painter, fell thirty feet from a building on Throckmorton street, to the stone stairs leading to the basement and sustained only a sprained ankle.
Cameron was painting a sign near the top of the building, when he lost his balance and fell from the scaffold. Paint was scattered in all directions and pedestrians who rushed to the assistance of the man expected to find him unconscious. To their great surprise, he was practically unhurt.
