Larry Drohman, 6, a nephew of Mrs. Arthur Swanstrom of Oak who had been making his home with them at their farm a mile and a half west of that place, fell into Elk creek (sic) and drowned about 5:30 last Thursday afternoon.

Larry and the Swanstrom's son Harold, 9, had been fishing in the creek at a point about 20 rods from the house. The Swanstrom boy ran to the house with news of the accident but it was estimated that from a half to three-quarters of an hour passed before Mr. Swanstrom was able to reach the scene from a field some distance away and remove Larry from the creek. The banks were steep and the water 5 to 6 feet deep at that point.

After attempts at artificial respiration on the scene by Mr. Swanstrom and Bill Williams of Oak proved ineffectual, the lad was rushed to Superior by Clark Anderson of Oak, where he was pronounced dead by Drs. C.T. Mason and J.A. Trowbridge.

Larry had been attending kindergarten in Oak. His parents have been living in Scott City, Kansas.

Funeral services were held Sunday in the Presbyterian church in Deshler, with burial also being made there.
