Frank Keith is Nearly Drowned
Frank Keith came very near
drowning Sunday afternoon. 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.
