Leonard, the 16 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. John Henfer, residing near here, drowned while bathing in the river here.  His body was recovered after a thirty minute search, but all attempts to bring him back to life were useless, as signs seemed he was taken with cramps.  The death of their son is a hard misfortune to the parents.  Funeral services were conducted at the Lutheran Zionís church.
