ICE FATALITIES. The pathetic circumstances of a triple ice tragedy, which occurred on Sunday afternoon three miles from Voriv, were revealed at the inquest at York on Alundjiy. The father, Julin Burkell Barnard, who was coachman on the stud farm belonging to Mr. E. G. lew, of Carl- ton Grange, Ponteiract, and the mother were drowned in attempting to save men- son, ag-d nine, who fell into a hole while Sliding oi. pond. The pond is about four feet deep at the edge, with a low, steep bank, which made rescue dnlicult. The latncr got out oi n.s depth, while the mother, approaching from the otner side across the ice, reached forward, thinking she saw her son's head, and with a cry of Harry, speak to me!" fell into the water and was also drowned. Owing to delay in obtaining assistance there waS never any hope of rescue, and hours elapsed before the bedies were recovered. A verdict of Accidentally drowned was re- turned. While a number of boys belonging to members of the Royal Field Artillery stationed at Deep Cut. Aldershot, were slicing on the Basingstoke Canal at Frimley on Sunday evening, the io« gave way. One of the sons of Quartermaster. Sergeant Johnson, 100th Battery, aged nine, fell in, and his brother, aged eleven, ventured out to try and save him. He, too, fell into ttuf- prater, and both were drowned. The other boys were so frightened that thej^ ran home, and it was not until an hour lat,et that what had occurred became known. TheIl the whole of the brigade stationed close by rushed off to the spot, and Corporal Turner, who had just returned from India invalided with ague, dived in under the ice and brought the body of the younger boy out. He went in again and succeeded in finding the other body. Turner is lying dangerously ill as the result of his heroic deed. -————————————-——-
