Clyde.- Last Thursday morning when a tug was bringing the 8 o'clock shift of men to Clyde a row boat containing five men, which the tug was towing, sank about two miles west of this village and two of the men were drowned. One, Abbramo De Lucca, a Greek, who leaves a wife and six children; the other a Pole, a stranger in this section. The bodies were recovered five hours later.

Coroner Winchell found $477 in bills on the person of the drowned Pole.

Peter Arnitz, one of the men in the boat, is a good swimmer, but when the boat upset one of the drowning men grabbed him by the foot and dragged him to the bottom of the canal. He couldn't bring the man to the surface with him and he couldn't break away from the death grip on his foot, but just at the point of exhaustion his shoe came off and he reached the surface and was helped ashore. When the dead man's body was recovered the shoe was held tightly in his grasp.

You Are Shown a Way Out

There can be no reason why any reader of this who suffers the tortures of an aching back, the annoyance of urinary disorders, the pains and dangers of kidney ills will fail to heed the word of a resident of this locality who has found relief. The following is convincing proof of merit.

J.B. Shuman, stationary fireman, Sodus St., Clyde, N.Y. says: "My kidneys acted irregularly and the kidney secretions were scalding in passage. I was lame and sore across my back and my skin was feverish. I had a dull ache in my back and mornings, especially, I felt lame. I used Doan's Kidney Pills and they gave me fine relief. They have also benefited me whenever I have had any signs of kidney trouble since.
