"GEORGE GRAYSON DIVES TO DEATH"

"George Grayson, 17 years of age, son of Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Grayson is dead. Young Grayson, while in bathing this morning with a party of friends dove from the White House pier into shallow water, breaking his neck, death resulting almost immediately. Young Grayson, who held a responsible position in New Orleans with Morris & Co., had been in Biloxi for a visit with his parents. He went for a swim from the hotel pier this morning shortly after 10 o'clock and had been in the water only a short time when the accident occurred. His body was rushed to Biloxi City Hospital with a number of physicians attending him, but owing to the fact that the injuriy was so severe medical aid was beyond assistance. Mr. Grayson leaves besides his parents, who reside on West Beach nearwhere the accident occurred, a brother, Capt. Thomas J. Grayson, and a sister, Miss Grace Grayson, two younger sisters, besides other relatives. The sad accident occurring at a time when the city was filled with visitors who came to participate in the yacht races and other festivities the sudden death of the young man has cast a gloom over the city. Funeral arrangements have not yet been made, announcement of which will be made late, services probably being held at the Grayson home with interment in the Biloxi cemetery."
