THOUGHT WOMAN A BOMB
------
Bankers Scared When She Drops Among Them.

Hammond, Ind., Oct. 3 -- Directors of the Indiana Harbor National Bank were in session to-day, when Mary Dopa, who weighs 235 pounds, fell through the skylight and landed in a sitting position on the long table among them.

The directors scattered in panic, thinking a bomb had been exploded.

Miss Dopa was not hurt.  She had been hanging out clothes on the roof of an adjoining building and had tripped and fallen through the bank skylight.
