Saved From Drowning

Narrow Escape of the Young Son of A.B. Stanton

About 6:30 last evening while bathing in the race near the Water Works, James the 13-year-old son of Mr. A.B. Stanton waded into deep water, and was rescued by Wiser Ayers, an employe [sic] at the electrical light works, as he was sinking for the third time. The lad was unconscious when taken form the water, but revived after the usual rough treatment had been applied. Ayres [sic] is entitled to a medal, for this is the third or fourth boy he has saved from drowning.
