DROWNS IN WILDCAT
Lenice, the Little Daughter of Mr and Mrs Oscar Stanturf, Falls Into Wild Cat on the Mullinax Farm

About five o'clock Monday evening the news reached town that Lenice, the little eight year old daughter of Mr and Mrs Oscar Stanturf, had fallen into Wildcat Creek about one-half mile south of the school house and drowned. She was playing along the bank with her sister, Decia, and little cousin, Lloyd Watson, a boy nine years old, when she fell into the creek. The hole at the place she fell was about 20 feet wide and 75 feet long, and some seven or eight feet deep. The little Watson boy went after her but almost drowned before reaching the bank. Her sister and the little boy then hastened to run and cry for help, but it was probably 25 to 30 minutes before men arrived, and her little body had gone down for the last time. She was soon found, after the men arrived and was carried out to the road where every effort to resuscitate her was tried in vain. Miss Twomey, a Kansas City nurse who was visiting the CI Mullinax family was soon on the ground, and by her heroic efforts and skillful directions they labored for an hour, vainly trying to induce respiration. Dr Stacy was called and upon his arrival he found that her little heart had ceased to beat, and that her little life had gone out. Her untimely death has cast a gloom over our entire community. Her funeral was held at the Pine Church Tuesday afternoon at 3 o'clock in the presence of a large concourse of sorrowing friends, after which her body was tenderly laid to rest in the Pine Cemetery.
