YESTERDAY'S ACCIDENT
Particulars of the Death of Willie Bray by Drowning
When we went to press yesterday afternoon, the coroner's inquest, over the body of the young, son of H. 0. Bray, who met his death by drowning, was in progress. At the inquest the following facts appeared: The drowned lad was thirteen years of age last December, and was of unsound mind, necessitating the exercise of considerable supervision over him. He was last seen alive by his parents at 11 o'clock yesterday morning, when he was playing about the house. Immediately after this he must have started for the river. He was next seen near the bridge over Webster & Rhodes' mill race leading to Goddard's mill. James Kiley, who lived near, warned him away, but the paid no attention. Later somewhere about 12 o'clock he saw him playing in a boat fastened under the bridge. When he looked again, shortly afterward, the boy had disappeared. Jamee Nolan saw a dark object floating down the race, which turned out to be the corpse of the drowned boy. Martin Serf, an employe of Webster &; Rhodes, also saw the body drifting down about twenty minutes past twelve. He and a man named Fritz Uecker took him on the land. There were no signs of life at the time. The jury rendered a verdict of accidental drowning, in accordance with the above acts. The parents have been plunged into great grief by this sudden affliction. The funeral services will take place tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock.
