Three Ladies Drowned.

Bristol, Tenn., April 4 - (Special.) - A telegram from Charles F. Palmer, at Saltville, this morning, announces the death by drowning of Misses Carrie and Mattie Musset-White, daughters of Mr. Worley Musset-White, and their little four-year-old niece, supposed to be a daughter of Mr. G. V. Mitchell. Worley Musset-White lives near the old river salt-works, on the North Fork, about two miles or less from Saltville station. The three were in a canoe, endeavoring to cross the river and were drowned by the capsizing of the canoe.

Note: the paper was incorrect about the 4 y.o's identity. She was May/Mary Musselwhite, 4 year old daughter of Carrie Musselwhite.
