Charles B?ar, a young farmer of
0age township, was drowned in the
south fork of Deer Creek last Tuesday
afternoon. We are uuable to get very
satisfactory details, but it seems that
he with three or four companions had
been seining.and after drawing the eein
out, young Bear started to swim across
the creek. When half way across one
of hia compaiuions called to him "Let
down and see how deep it Is." He im
mediately did so in the customary
way, lifting his arms above his head
and Binking until tho, water covered
the tips of hia fingers. He did not
come to the surface again as soon as he
should, one of tho men became alarm
ed and swam out to where he had gone
down. He caught hold of Bear's hand
but was unable to bring him to the
surface and in the struggle came near
being dragged down himself. - He re
turned to the shore and one of the
other msn swam out but with no better
result, and it was nearly an hour be
fore the lifeless body was finally
brought to land. Bear was a young
man of nbout 21 years of age and a
strong swimmer, and his drowning,
unuer tueclrcumstances.especially the
alleged fact that he did not onee rise
to the surface after going down of his
own volition, seems almost unaccount
able. Ho was a son of Mr. A. L. Bear.

"About a week ago," says a LosAnge-

and as soon as he got inside tho door
began to swing his arras over his head
like an Indian club swinger. I thought
the blame fool had a fit, but he finally
stopped long enough to Bay; Medi
cine velly fine; aflo same make me
feel plenty good." Chamberlain's
