Tho house, Monday, instructed the clerk

A HARROW ESCAPE FROM A WATEHY
Two Little Children Drift Across Lako Austin
In a Row Boat Buring a High Wind,
On Wednesday of latt week two children
Willlo Hyde, a littlo boy eight years of age,
son of E. W. Hydo of Poultcey, and his
conslu Alllo Barker, ft littlo girl nine yoan
old, wero over near Lako Austin chestnut-

went down to tho water n edgo and got into
bent that was drawn up on tho shoro
with one end In tho water. Thoy were
playing in tlio boat and shucking their
chestnuts, when, beforo they wero aware,
they heard tho boat grating upon tho sand
nud they were afloat upon tho water before
they had time to jump out on land. Thcro
wero no oars in the boat, nothing but u
stick, with which tho littlo boy turned tho
boat around two or three times, but was
unablo to paddlo It against tho wind to tho
iliore. They screamed to somo largo Iiojb
they saw further down the shore for help,
but their screams were not heard, and they
saw themselves drifting further from tho
thorc. Thero was a high, northwesterly
wind at tho time and tha white-caps rolled.
Tho children wero terribly frightened and
the littlo girl was determined to jump from
tho boat, but Ibcboy would not let her ; he
said ho could not tec the bottom then, al
though not far from tho shore, and
he knew sho would bo drowned. The ac
tion of tho wlud nnd waves drove them
about and they drifted quite rapidly out
into Hie lake. They gavo up screaming for
help when they found their cries wero un
heard. They said they covered their faces
with their hands and cried and prayed to
God to save Ihcm. Their feelings can bet

were tesred here nnd there with tho waves,

better. Aathc bent scared Cone's Point
the little boy again took tho tllck and tried
to paddlo ashore and it was almo6t a mir

efforts to reach tho shoro tho wind took
them farther sottlheast and they wero at

went to Mr. u. a house nnd asked him to
bring them across but he told them tho lake

went farther down the shoro where they
