Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 25, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta OUTSTRETCHED IN Mr. Mason Wading in Water Found His laic Partner's Fred Turner's Body Near By Some Very Pathetic Incidents (Special to The Herald Magrnth, Nov. half-past two on Saturday, afternoon the bodies of, P. H. Turner and John .Cheney, vic- tims of the terrible drowning affair In Mondehhail Lake, were brought to the surface, and a. great cry of joy up from the seventy-five men compelling the Hearchlng party. It in strange coincidence that Mr. Mason ihould find tho body of his partner, .1. A. Raerausson, an intimate friend of Mr. Turner, should bo th-s ono to.recover tlic corpse of the local nun. All. Saturday the searcli waa eohtlriiiea systematically and vigor. otiBly. Nothing, was discovered in the and three more boats from Lothbridge and a gasoline launch from Spring Coulee, were aoon on thii for thetcene of the tragedy. Several- men in rubber -waders were pressed Into service, and this proved to be the only reliable method in seek- ing for the bodies. At least, they .were the ones who .made the discov. ery. From a point on the west side of the lake, where the unmistakable marks of Ed. Jensen's horoio fight for life were imprinted, a direct line of search was instituted. Every foot the. ground was thoroughly explored. An oar was first 'brought forth, quickly by the other oar. .Then one of the geese was found, and it rmi-lock. These were plain evid- races' that the boat was not far dis- tant; and in (I few moments it was discovered, a small point of it jutting above 'water, it was aliout fifty feat from the outmost edge of the ice trust. a peculiar fact that the cap of the victims were found right node; a thin crust of'slushy ice, in the iden spot where' the faithful dog cold, silent yigj_l_ These pointed in muts significance to the forethought, and grim heroism o rhe two men, who, realizing that death only a matter of a few minutes threw fchoir caps to the ice above, as a. murk of identification of their ery grave. This brough tears to the eyes of strong; hardj men; and is a splendid example of the admirable virtues of both of the dead Mr. Cheney's Body Breaking in about ten feet further the labors of the were fur ther rewarded. The body of Mr .vu found. Thii was. .prompt ly announced and pawed onto the waiting BTOupa on shore. Mr. Mason found his partner. In than five .minutes more, .1 A. RMmuftsAn caught his hnok in th' cuff of -Mr. Turner's trousers, and hi body (lllicfcly raised to the face of the like. Mr. found face upward with-one trm stretched towards Ml Turner. Jlr. Turner was face down and right arm was utretohed towards that cf his compan Jon, Thus, it may be reasonably sup Tosed, that- before the flnnl farewell was their hands had clasped, and I only disconnected-when their -bodies were waihed beneath tlreir Icy shroud.
