BROTHERS DROWN UBO ol luo buuutHt ovuulb luat has over occurred in tho county. tpok place near Horso Branch Sun day when two brothors, Hubert and Millard Geary, wore drowned iu J Caney Creek, while in swimming. About 9 o'clock tho two boys, to- 'gether with a small boy, went to . Caney Creek at a point Just above 1 White Run, with tho intention of going in bathing. Tho small boy did not go in, and it was ho that gavo the word that tho Geary boys wero drowned. It seems that tho channell of the creek at. this place is very narrow but deep, it being some seven feet in depth at this plnco. Tho boys misjudged the depth nnd tho young er boy plunged into the water which was very cold and immediate ly took cramp. The older brother, seeing him struggling, jumped af ter him, but tho boy was drowning and struggled so flercoly to get to the shore that both were drowned. Tho hnv . wna wIfh t. llonm frlglatened and ran horae. Tholr lives could possibly have been sav ed had ho retained his self-composure as somo men wero in a field nearby when tho accident occurred.

The Owensboro-Bowllng Green road Is practically assured. It is now only question of organization and getting down to business.
