A SAD OCCURRENCE —On Saturday even
ing last, as LYMAN B. SPEAKER and family
consisting of liis mother, wife, a son about 14
years of age. a child of 5 years and a hired
girl, were returning from the church where
Christmas eve services had been held in con
nection with a Christmas tree, in crossing
the Loval Sock creek, the boat capsized from
some cause and the entire party wore thrown
into the creek, which at Ibis point is quite deep
and the current rapid. Owing to the exertions
of the partv Mrs. SARAH SPEAKER. Air.
SPEAKER and the hired girl wore saved, hut
Mrs. SPEAKER and the two children were
drowned. The bodies of the children were
found soon after, near where the accident oc
curred, but the body of Airs. SPEAKER was
not found until Sunday afternoon, and was
some distance down five creek.
Mas.'SPEAKER was a woman of rare
acennipllchments. hospitable, entertaining
and always interested in the welfare of those
near her. JOHN, the eldest, child, we remem
ber as a bright, intelligent studious school
bov, who carried with him an air of manliness
seldom met with in a boy of his age. This
blow falls'with great severity upon the kind
husband and father who is thus bereft in a
single hour of an estimable wife and two
dear children. The heartfelt sympathy of
all is extended to him in this hour of afflic
tion.— Dushove Review.
