DEATHS BY DROWNING. On Monday afternoon a number of boys were bathing in a pool from 5ft. to 8ft. deep in the Old Channel of the Spey, near Elgin, when two of them, James Young, aged 5, and Daniel Morrison, aged 1.2; went beyond their depth. They could not swim, and their cries attracted the attention of some fishermen, but before they could reach the spot both boys bad- sunk. Their bodies were recovered, but life in, each- case was extinct. On Monday a coroner's inquest was held on the bodies of two lads, named Wilson M'Coosh and Samuel Stewart, who resided near Lisburn. They left their homes early in the morning, and it appears bathed in the River Legan in the vicinity of Glen- more. After noon they had a second bathe in the- river. Stewart got out of his depth, and was strug- gling for life in the middle of the river when M'Coosh immediately proceeded to try and rescue his oom- panion, but all hope of rescue was lost, and both were drowned. The jury returned a verdict of Acci- dental Death." One of the Royal Irish Constabulary, namedi Patrick Tracey, has been drowned near Stewartstown, county Tyrone, while bathing in a small lake adjacent to the town. He was accompanied by another police- man, who was unable to swim, and accordingly could: render no assistance.
