(.>5|>aclal to the Ucrnld) Fernle, Aug. 1.-A most lamentable drowning accident occurred in West Kernic last Friday afternoon when the three-year-old little boy, sou of Mr. and .Mrs. Geo. Townaend, fell into Flk River and disappeared without being noticed by hia playmates. Search waa at once Instituted for the body liut without success until 2:30 o'clock lliia afternoon when Provincial Constable .'ilc.Nally, nocunipau-ied by Major Gray, a neighbor boy, found the body at tho edge ot a logjam about five hundred yards down stronui from where the child had disappeared. Tlie father of the little follow is at the front, serving in the 2nd CM.R., and there are left five children to mourn with thoir grief-stricken mo-tltor, the loss of thoir little .brother, who wa three years and three months of age. The oldeat child, a girl, ia t'oiirteeii, and the youngoat, a little boy, two and a halt years old. .Mr. Tovvnsend was a jnlner before going to tho front Fn the 103rd Battalion, and had lived for several years in West Fornlo. Tho story told by the children who were at the river bank when the drowning look place Is somewhat confused, but as near as can be judged from tho eurroundings, tho little boy was playing beneath a large stump which overliung tlio bank, hiding him from the view of his playmates when tlie.v were on top of the bank, and whllo they were out of sight ho must have ventured out into tho stream -w'here the current ran swiftly, and was'swept out of sight betoro tho others returned to where they had last seen him. There is no doubt aa t� the accidental nature of tho sad occurronco, thorp being no Inquest held upon fhrf body which was at once taken .to the undertaking parlors ot Ooorgo Thomson where It will be in-epared for burial. Tho sympathies ot tho whole community go out to tho bereaved mother and father, so far from his dear ones, and to the llttio brothein and sisters ot tho bright little boy whoso llfty light haf( H(i.

This new outrage upon the unprotected Serbian population appears to mean the collective forced recruiting ot Sorblani for the purpose of collecting ot the harvest for tUb Austro-llungarlan military stores.
