TWO GIRLS Drowned at Sioux Falls While Pleasure Riding Rowboat- in Sioux Falls, July 15.—-Mabel Meis nhelder 23, and Pearl Meisenhelder 20, sisters, were drowned in the Sioux river while out boat riding with John Roth, 24. At this writing 12 p. m., only the body of Mabel Meisenhelder had been recovered. Roth escaped drowning by being rescued by a passing row boat as he clung to the side of bis overturned boat. It is not known how tbe aocident oc curred. Roth was frantic when ies cued, and could not even state his own name. The only information that be was able to articulate was to the effect that two girls had drowned. Later on when he had been attended by a physician, and sedatives admin istered, he gave the names of the girls, but begged his friends not to ask him anytning more about it. The police were notified about ten o'clock that a drowning had occurred on the river, and as quickly as possible tbey were on tbe spot with grappling hooks and pike polea to drag for the bodies- The repoit stated that the ac cident occurred off Parker's ice house point. Arriving on the scene, they distri bated hooks, and otner tackle tn a dozen boats that had gathered about the place to assist in dragging for the bodies. The searchers were oat hardly five minutes when P. O. Peterson,a fireman brought the tiist body to the surface. It was that of Mabel Meisenhelder. The twelve boats containing fire men, members of the police force and citizens of the neigbboihood continued to drag the river for tbe body of Pearl, but were unable to bring her to the surface. One of the grappling irons caught in her clothing for an instant, but the dress gave way and the bold was lost There is a considerable drift in the river av that point, and by the time the boat swong round again the men were unable to locate the spot in the dark ness. Rotb gave the following details of the drowning. "Mabel and Pearl Meisenhelder and I took a boat early in the evening and rowed np the river to where there is a boat anchored, and where a gramo phone plays and lemonade and so fortb are sold. We stayed there a short time listening to the music and then started to row home. When we bad got as far down stream as the Parker ice house one of thegirla, who was iu the baw of the boat, rose to her her feet and looked around over the river. When I noticed what she was doing. I told her to sit down, as Bhe might upset the boat. "She turned with a sort of swing, in order that ber skirts might clear the bout, and as she started to sit down she limned in such a way as to pitch her headlong into the water. Tbe other sister jumped to her feet, and then the boat went over. "1 made a spring to catch the girl still in the boat with me, and we went into the water together, coming up under the boat. In trying to get out again, I lost my hold on the girl and she disappeared. I could not find her again and after trying until I was ex hausted I made my way to the over turned boat, to which I clung until taken oft by Ray Hutchinson. The two sifters drowned were young people who have lived iu Sioux Falls for a long time, and have hundreds cf fiiends who deplore their tragic death. The eldest of the two girls taught school in Aurelia, la., bat the other lived at home. The parents of the drowned girls are nearly prostrated with gtief.
