Drowning at Silverdale

Harry Asbell, Seventeen Years Old Son of Frank Asbell, Meets Death While Fishing.

The drowning of Harry Asbell, the seventeen year old son of Frank Asbell, put an end to a fishing excursion on Grouse creek Saturday afternoon. Frank Asbell and family, formerly residents of Arkansas City, but now living at Hardy, Okla., came up to Silverdale last week for a fishing trip on Grouse creek. Saturday afternoon the boy was wading in the creek, fishing with a pole and line, when he stepped into a deep hole and before help could reach him, he was drowned. He was a good swimmer and it is believed that he was taken with a cramp. His father was in a boat some distance up stream and saw his son's predicament. He started to his assistance but was unable to reach him. Several others members were on the bank and saw the young man drown.

A search was made for the body but it was not found until nearly noon yesterday. It was found a short distance from where the young man was last seen struggling in the water.

The funeral was held yesterday afternoon at Silverdale,with burial in the Silverdale cemetery.

The young man was a grandson of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Asbell, of Arkansas City.
