Baby Drowned in a Tub
Ruth, the 1½-year-old daughter of George W. Buskingham, of Grand Forks, was drowned in a tub of water in the back yard of her home tonight. The family were taking supper at the time, the child supposedly playing with her twin sister in the yard. A minute before the fatality occurred she was heard to call her father. An older sister went to fetch the child in and found her with her head under the water and feet on the ground, life being extinct.
