A terrible calamity happened at Clor- DioDton Thursday afternoon by whi.'h two lifts want out in the morning of their existence, nnd four othors were barely saved, through the hemic cflorts of one man, Jacob Keitlinger. The party was made up of six young pao- plo from Castalia, who, wllh others were having a Sunday school picnia on the south side of the river, at Clermont. The load referred to undertook to ford the rivor, below the bridge, on starting home, and drove into the whirlpool, jiut below the ford.
