He was in swimming along the Bur lington right-of-way near the bridge across the Nemaha south of town, with a number of other young men and boys. Frank got tangled up in some brush and sank. He grabbed Alva Buel came near taking him down, but Alva broke loose from him. For tunately Ben Baldwin was near, and though he thought at hrst it was some of the boys fooling, he went to the rescue when he saw Frank was in danger. He caught uh a pole that happened to be lying there and shoved it imder Frank, who was sinking for the last time. Frank seized it and came near pulling Ben in deep water, but the latter had another young man catch hold of him and together they managed to get Frank to land. He was just about senseless but as soon as he got rjd of some of the water he had swallowed he was all right aside from being a little sick and shaky. It was a narrow escape for the, young man, as he was rapidly drifting to a barb wire fence on the banks of the Nema ha, and if he had escaped being entangled and held down by this would have gone on into the channel of the Nemaha river.
