Curtis Cook had a narrow escape from death by drowning Thursday evening. In company with Earnest Meisner, a boy of ten years, he was playing on the river bank near the creamery. His foot slipped on a rock and he fell off the high bank into the river. The water is from 10 to 12 feet deep at this point and the little fellow had gone down twice, when the Meisner boy, who is able to swim, jumped in and brought him out and he soon recovered and has felt no bad effects from his adventure. It was indeed a brave deed for a ten year old boy and he has received many compliments on his bravery and clear head.
