Drowned at Nora Springs.
We learn from Mr. Merrill, a travelling man living a Nora Springs, that last Friday evening or Saturday morning, three students in the Seminary at that place, named Atkinson, Slausen and Gault were drowned in the mill pond. They were in bathing, and one of the number was taken with a cramp, and went down. The others went to his rescue and lost their lives in trying to save him. The unfortunate youths were not residents of the village, but students of the seminary and members of the class that would graduate Saturday evening.
