FATHER AND TWO SONS DROWNED. The Prase Association's Marlow corres- pondent telegraphs:—A terrible bathing fa- tality occurred early on Monday morning near Marlow. It appears that a camping party, consist- ing of Mr. J. S. Gilbert, of 23, Stile Hail Gardens, Ken&u. jfton, with his two sons and two friends, pitched their tents and camped last Sunday night between Medmenham and Hurley, and on Monday morning they pre- pared to bathe, all being swimmers. One of the sons, Mr. F. A. Gilbert, aged about 20, f-rst swam across the river, and on the way back he called out that he felt tired. Then within a few feet of the bank he sank in deep water. His father, who was a man of about fifty years of age, at once plunged in, partly dressed, to ihe rescue, as also did young Gilbert's brother, X-. G. Gilbert, aged about 22. Neither rose to the surface again, and another mem- ber of the rty plunged in, and although this gentleman brought air. Gilbert, senior, to the :arface, he was unable without c..5- sistance to get him to the bank. When help was eventually procured, SO minutes later, the bodies were all recovered, but attempts to restore respiration failed. There --a no sign that the bodies had been entangled in weeds.
