Woman And Baby Drowned
Wagon Overturns While Crossing a Swollen Stream.
Beach, N.D., March 29.—When his team became mired in the flood waters and mud of Cabin Creek, in Montana, near here, William McNannum lost control of the team and the wagon overturned. Mrs. Chris Mercer and baby were thrown into the stream and drowned before McNannum, who was entangled in the harness, could extricate himself and go to her aid.
Mrs. Mercer was the wife of a homesteader near Cabin Creek and had been visiting a neighbor. McNannum was taking her home.
