On Saturday afternoon last, at about 5 o'clock' Charles E. Handy, a young lad between 14 and 15 years old, son of Isaac C. Handy, of this city, was drowned in the pond at a point a few rods above the ice house. In company with George Carrington, a boy a little older, he had been boating on the pond, in a boat some nine feet long, one-and-a-half wide, and made of inch boards. The boys took turns as the boat would carry but one. In turning the boat it capsized, and being unable to swim Charlie called for help in vain and finally exhausted sunk to his watery grave. His playmate tried to go to his rescue, but was unable to give aid. Alarm was immediately given, but the body was not recovered until a little after 11 o'clock A. M. of Sunday, when it was found very near the place where he went down in about fifteen feet of water. The funeral was largely attended on Monday afternoon; the Grammar School being dismissed for the occasion, and the pall-bearers being selected from his class-mates, by whom he was greatly beloved. His teachers and all who knew him speak of him as a gentle, good-tempered, obedient, trusty boy, and the father and family have the sympathies of a Iarge circle of friends.

- The lesson of this accident should be heeded by a large number of the young boys' of thia city. . A capital job ia being done on Hurón and Mlin streets by scrapíng off the accumulatod dirt, mud and manure of year, to the depth of everal nches, loweíing the street to a botter grade, and furnishing a better and hardei bottom. With new, broader and shallow gutters,' ' and a little gravel to level and round up the road-bed the streets named will be put in good oudition. Nature has established grades for nearly all the streeU of our city, and with a little common sense in working them they may alwaya be number one. Water courses should not run up hül or Btreetá be piled up above adJoininglotB.
