Accidental Drowning
A young man named James McGuire, in the employ of Mr.J. Speight, while bathing in the mill pond with a son of the latter, on Tuesday evening, 22nd ult., was drowned. It is supposed he took cramps, as he disappeared suddenly. The young man who was with him, being unable to swim, could render no assistance. A large number of villagers soon assenbled, and searched for the body till after midnight, but it was not found till the following morning. An inguest was held, and a verdict rendered of "Accidental drowning while bathing." Deceased was held in high esteem by those who knew him, and especially by his employer, who feels much regret at the sad occurance. His parents reside at Salmonville.
