June 1906 Ottawa Kansas "Ross Boardman, the thirteen-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Boardman, was drowned yesterday afternoon while swimming with a small party of boys at a point up the river north. The boy was able to swim but encountered a current shore. The current was very swift at the. point where the boy went under, that was beyond his strength. There seems also to have been an undercurrent which drew him down. He was in the water about twenty-five minutes before the body was recovered. The two Boardman boys, together with Leon Simpson, Will Schnoke and one or two other companions had gone swimming about three o'clock. They went to a new swimming hole, which the boys have named the " Pollywog," Mathias, who is strong and a good swimmer, could hardly stand against it. The water, however, was not more than four feet deep. Every effort that the boys could think of was applied to resuscitate drowned boy, but without producing any signs of life. A short time afterward Will Angelo reached the spot in an automobile, having received the word which the Simpson boy brought to town. After a little further effort toward bringing the boy to life, the body was taken with all speed to the Boardman home, where for an hour a number of physicians made an ineffectual effort at resuscitation. Numerous other swimming parties were at the other swimming holes along the stream. The boys had only tine yesterday. Ross Boardman was a particularly ....and is attractive and manly boy, who had greatly ".f endeared himself to all his acquaintances. The shock of his sudden death has affected the neighborhood in which he lived as a bereave-; ment personal to all who knew the boy, who had been won by his gentleness and manliaess. , Mr. Boardman was in Colorado on business but had started home yesterday.
