Mrs. Jule F. Switzer, formerly one of the Crow Sisters, well-known to our theatre-going people, was drowned near What Cheer last Monday while fishing out of a boat. A number of people were enjoying a fishing trip when the boat was accidentally overturned. Jesse Ford, a druggist, and Rev. Parkinson, an Episcopal minister, were also drowned.
