July sorrowful siory of the drcnvninjr of two girls in Lake Deseht-nerf in the morning On Cable Carried Down the River Trail. July incident, which might, have been attended with ser- ious results, happened to the Trail ferry this morning at o'clock and furnished considerable excite- ment, not-only for the passengers but also those who were in a position to witness the mishap. S. F. McKay, who has been operating the ferry for the past week, undertook to take G. L. Merry and a load of supplies across the river at the above mention- ed .hour.

With the assistance of the small boats a landing was made about a mile below the city and the occupants, save for an exciting ten minutes were unin- jured.
