                      DROWNS IN RIVER

     John Ahrens, Well Known Farmer of
         Ahrens Hill, Drowned at Noon
                       Near the Dam


     Ahrens Walked Off Northeast Brain-
          erd Bridge at Point Where the
                  Railing was Gone

      At noon today John Ahrens, the well known farmer who has his home on the tract of land designated Ahrens hill, walked off or fell off the Northeast Brainerd bridge at the dam, dropping 50 feet to the river below and drowning before help could reach him.
      But few people were in the vicinity when the tragedy occurred. Two men on a distant bank saw the unfortunate man strike the water and they hurried from near the pulp mill and out to where he was struggling. He sank before they could reach him. The body was recovered close to the dam.
      Residents near the dam say the bridge had no railing at the place where Ahrens fell off. The bridge is being repaired and the work of alterations has not been entirely completed. (Brainerd Daily Dispatch, 03 August 1912, p. 3, c. 1) [Contributed by John Van Essen]
