At about half-fast eleven o'clock, yesterday, a sad drowning occurred at Geddes, which adds another to the long roll of deaths by drowning in the Huron river. Edward Moore, a young man of about twenty-one years of age, was out skating with Miss Hicks when the ice broke and both feil into the water. Miss Hicks was rescued but Moore sank and was drowned. Both his parents are dead and the young man for the past year had been living in the family of Miss Hicks' parents at Geddes. Miss Hicks is a sister of Mrs. Charles Millard, who lives just north of the city limits. The drowning is a sad one and but emphasizes the treacherous nature of the ice on the river and the care which needs to be observed in skating.
