Drowning at Charles City.
Charles City, Oct. 2.—This town was thrown into a stage of excitement this morning by cries for help, and soon it was found that the 7-year-old son of Le Roy Loper, who had been in the river had fallen into a hole where the water was over his head and an under current had carried him under the power house and it was impossible for him to get out without help. As soon as possible he was taken out and physicians were called, who worked with him until it was found that life had entirely left the body.
Transcriber’s Note: Find a Grave shows this was Roy who is buried in Riverside Cemetery.
