1869 - A Mrs. Knight, of Rochester, N.Y., a few days ago, procured a boat and went to the rescue of a man who was struggling in the water about three hundred yards from the shore.

She grasped him by the hair of the head and managed with one hand to paddle the boat ashore. Mrs. Knight is a woman of a slight frame, and the man she saved from drowning weighs nearly 200 pounds.
