Witness Drowning

Mrs. John V. Sturner and two sisters and daughter Gladys came home from their outing and fishing trip up at Tomahawk Wednesday evening. They reported some very nice catches.

While John V. and his family were there, Herman Peissig and Chas. Rahn drove up and John proceeded to send them home with some fish. John in a little while caught 42 nice ones and on another little trip Mr. Riplinger caught 18, so we think by their talk, they were well paid for their trip.

While there four men went out on a rough lake and their boat turned over. Three out of the four were saved from the watery grave by an Illinois man who is an excellent swimmer preformed the fete of saving the three that were saved, the other one could not be rescued and he leaves a wife and family to mourn his loss.

Changing Scene

Mrs. Motorist: Why don’t you ask someone where we are?

Mr. Motorist: What the devil difference would it make? Five minutes from now we won’t be any where near here.
