Narrow escape from drowning. Orange, Tuesday.

A young man named John Ward had a narrow escape from drowning in the Summer Hill Creek on Sunday morning. He and another young man named Stanley Mutton, both employed by Mr H. D. O'Brien, were taking food out to the farm owned by the last named on Summer Hill Creek, near Rosedale.

When they reached the second crossing they found the water running swiftly, and bank high, but essayed to cross it. When well in the creek their pony lost its footing, and Mutton went into the water to help it. While thus employed Ward, who was, unable to swim, was washed out of the sulky and sank. Mutton secured him, however, and managed to get him to tho bank. The pony was drowned, and the sulky washed down the creek.
