Two Men Drowned.?Messrs. Ed? ward and Robert Tyler, brothers, tbe former 35 years old and the latter 19, sons of Mr Daniel Tyler, of lower Fair? fax county, were drowned in Pobick creek, near Accotink, about nine o'clock yesterday morning. The two men had recently been cutting wood, during which time they had set rabbit gums in the woods. Yesterday morning they started out for the purpose of examin? ing their traps and undertook to skate across the creek to them. The older brother was in the lead and before he was aware of its existence he ran into an air hole. The younger brother was but a few feet behind him, and before he could stop he, too, ran into the opening. Both men cried for help, but before assistance could reach them both were drowned. The bodies were sub? sequently recovered, being found under the ice in almost a standing position a few feet from where they broke through the ice. The older brother leaves a wife and three children.
