Last Saturday afternoon, Alonzo Phillips and Norris Hendrickson were drowned, while bathing in Shoal Creek, near Summers' Mill. Phillips, who could swim led his comrade into the water to teach him. While they were wading into the water, they stepped into a hole, ten or twelve feet deep, and were both drowned. Stephen Hendrickson witnessed the accident, but being himself unable to swim, was not able to render any assistance.
