Death - Little Boy is Drowned - Theodore Fulcher, age 9, son of Mr. & Mrs. J. T. Fulcher drowned last Sunday. Theodore, in company with several other little neighbor boys had strolled down the railroad towards Brushy creek. Upon reaching the slough at the end of the railroad dump, they were enjoying themselves by riding back and forth across the slough on a couple of pieces of heavy timber which had been fastened together. As they were being pushed out for another trip across, one of the boys who was standing on the bank jumped on the end of the timbers which caused them to rock and it frightened the ones on board and they all stepped to one side which caused the improvised raft to turnover and all were thrown into the water. M. E. Lincoln who was standing on the bank watching them, jumped in and rescued five. Theodore had gotten further out in the water and disappeared before he could get to him. A runner was sent to town for help and a number rushed to the scene on horseback, in buggies and automobiles. Mr. Lincoln became exhausted. The body was recovered by Sharp Young about 5 p.m. Burial was in the Locklin cemetery, 5-miles north of Thorndale at 3:30 p.m. Monday. Public school at Thorndale was dismissed for the day and the schools at Ellison Ridge and San Gabriel attended the funeral in body. Thorndale Thorn
