DEATH BY DROWNING
It has seldom been our duty to record so sad an event as happened on Saturday in the drowning of Charles Schepmoes, son of Mr. DeWitt Schepmoes of this village. The unfortunate lad, who was sixteen years of age, could not swim but had gone bathing in the Wallkill in company with another boy named Curtis Haines. They were about half a mile below the village, near Mr. Jacob Wurts's. Young Schepmoes had provided himself with a plank to buoy himself up, but in some way this plank slipped from his grasp and he sank in deep water. His companion who could swim but very little, hurried to the neighbors and thence to our village. Dr. Palmer was in Mr. Schepmoes's jewelry store when the news came and with a number of others was as soon as possible on the bank of the stream at the spot where the accident happened. Gerow Van Voorhis, who is a very expert swimmer and diver, after about twenty minutes effort, succeeded in finding the body, and he and Louis Marquart bro't it to the shore.
Under the direction of Dr. Palmer efforts were made at once to resuscitate the body. These efforts were continued for a long time, but there ____of return ____ animation ___
