- Little Charlie Kinsman In Galt
On Monday afternoon last, shortly before 4 o'clock, a young boy named Charles Kinsman, nearly 12 years of age, (son of Mr. J. H. Kinsman, West Main street), wandered down to the river, and commenced to amuse himself on a small raft which he had made. He paddled about just below Rev. Mr. Dickson's grounds for some time, and it is thought was going through some antics to amuse a companion on the shore, when he fell off into the water, which in this place is from five to six feet in depth. At this moment it happened that one of the workers in the knitting factory on the opposite side of the river, Miss Robinson, was looking out of the window, and noticing the accident she at once cried out that a boy was drowning. Without a moment's hesitation Mr. Wm. Cunningham jumped into the water beneath the factory and made his way across the river with all possible speed to where the poor little fellow was seen for the last time. When he reached the spot, however, there was not even a bubble to show where the boy rested; and although he was speedily joined by others until fully a dozen searchers (including the father of the boy) were in the river, the remains were not found until some twenty minutes had elapsed. When taken from the water they were carried to the residence of the distracted parents, where medical men were already present, and where everything possible was done in the hope that the vital spark had not finally fled. The hope was vain, however, and after continuous exertions the medical men were compelled to admit that there was no hope.
Mr. and Mrs. Kinsman, the parents of the child, have only been residents of Galt for about a year, and but few weeks have elapsed, we are informed, since a younger child had one of its eyes destroyed by a stick or knife in its own hands. The bereavement of Monday thus falls upon them with doubly increased force, and will beget for the family the deep sympathy of all who know them.
