WOMAN AND CHILD DROWNED

On Wednesday last, a Mrs. Lemuel Langley and an adopted daughter attempted to cross Cedar creek, in Hancock township, on a loaded wagon. The water in the creek was very high, and when the team had reached the deepest part, the wagon turned partially over by the force of the current, precipitating the woman and child into the stream, when they were both drowned.
