The girls were very mysteri ously drownod, but their friends think it was a case of suicide on the part of tho older girl, and that she drew the younger in with her purposely. Char lotte's clothing was found securely pinned together near the knees and the sleeves of her dress were securely pinned to her shoulders, indicating either that she had thus secured them herself to avoid involuntary escaping death when she should make tho fatal leap into tho water, or else that foul play was had with her and that her clothes were so pinned by some one to deceive others and to conceal their crime.
