XE AT R1DGEWOOD
CLAIMS TWO VICTIMS
Keene Brown and Clarence Drigger4
Drowned in Columbia Mronday,
Columbia State, August 8.
Keene Brown and Clarence Drig
gers, well known young men of Co
lumbia, were drowned in Ridgewood
lake yesterday a few minutes before
noon. The lake is about 200 yards
from the end of the car line and is
a summer amusement park.
The two young men who lost their
lives and J. W. Parrent and J. B.
Lewis, all employes of the Seaboard
Air Line, were taking a boat ride on
the lake. Brown, Driggers and Par
rent were in one boat and Lewis in
another with a boy whose name is not
own. They had been down to the
ion, and were on their way back to
surrender the boats when the accident
occurred. Lewis and the little boy
were possibly 100 yards ahead of the
other young men.
Parrent, the young man who was
in the boat with Brown and Driggers
but was saved, said that the boat they
used, No. 3, had water in it when they
took it out. It was dipped out. John
Faust, the negro, who rented them
the boats, said the water h4d been
splashed in by the people who last
used the boat. Lewis verified this
statement by Parrent.
Parrent said the water continued to
come in as they went down the lake
and back. He thought the boat leak
ed. They continued to dip it out, the
best they could, but the boat went
down about 200 yards west of the pa
vilion and about 75 yards from shore.
Parrent clung onto the boat, and
Brown and Driggers made an effort
to swim to the bank. A little boy came
to Parrent and gave what assistance
Several hours after the accident the
boat was brought; up to the pavilion
and examined, but no leaks were
found. It is the theory that the oc
cupants of the boat were sitting too
much on one side and the water grad
ually came over in the boat.
The place, where the accident oc
curred, is about seven or eight feet
deep, if they went down in the chan
nel of the creek, but when out of the
channel, the water in this part of the
lake is only four or five feet 4! ep. It
is not known whether or not Brown
and Driggers could swim.
The young men, with the excepLion
of Driggers, had worked Sunday night.
Keene Brown was night watchman;
J. W. Parrent is night hostler; J. B.
Lewis is night clerk in the yard of
floe, and Clarence Driggers was em
ployed as fireman. He had not work
ed for the past few days, owing to
the engine on which he fired being
"cut off." They went out yesterday
morning for a little recreation, row
ing on ihe lake. Driggers joined the
party on the corner of Main and Tay
Body of Young Driggers Found.
At a- late hour- last night the body
of youn'g Driggers was found a few
feet from .where he went down, but
the body of young Brown has not
been recovered/ It is expec+.ed that
iis body will 1Se found eai-ly today, as
the lake was partially drained and

Efforts were made yesterday after
noon to find them by diving, but to
no avail. .
The: locks were opened, about 3.30
o'clock and the water receded at the
rate of about a foot an hou.r. The
locks were watched carefully so that
if the bodies came down they would
' eene Brown.
Keene Brown was the youngest son
of Mrs. Scott Brown, who has charge
of the Tavern at 1209 Main street.
He was sixteen years old and a. boy
that numbered his friends as many.
For over two years he has been con
nected with the Seaboard, and has
gradually risen from one position to
another, -until at the time of his death
he was nigjit switchman. Among the
railroad' m n, he was universally
popular. He has lived in Camden and
in North Carolina 'and there will be
many in those parts and in Columbia
that will be grieved to bear of his sad
Clarence Driggers, was the sonl of
Henry K. Driggers, and lived at the
corner of Lumber and Wayne streets.
He was,21 years of age. He was em
ployed as fireman by the Seaboard
railway and was held in high esteem
by .b6th the company and his fellow
employees. He has liv4d in Columbia
since last January, his family moving
