WASHED TO THE SHORE. Charlie Shraeder'sJProperty In Found Nenr llroBsler's Mill. Charlie Schrader has found a part of the .property which was lost in the Elk' horn last Wednesday. Tbe horses, harness and most of the wagon were wash-, ed up on the shore of the creek near Bressler's mill. The horses are both dead, having perished in a short time after Charlie succeeded in getting out of the creek. The harness is damaged but slightly, and, with a little repairing, can be made nearly as g'ood as new. . The place where Charlie went into the creek is said to be at least .fifteen feetdeep,and tbe banks there are so located that a fierce whirlpool is formed. This is what, in all probability, threw the horses under. The-more that is learned of the nccldent,the more people wonder that Charlie ever got out of the mix-up with hia life. ; BAPTIST REVIVALS CLOSED.
