Body Found In a Well,
Shell Rock, July 21.—Word was received here about 8 o’clock last evening that the four-year-old son of Eugene Leavens, a farmer living a short distance from town, was lost. About seventy-five went out in search and about 11 o'clock the dead body of the child was found in an abandoned well. There were heavy plank over the well and they gave no evidence of being disturbed. How he got in with the planks undisturbed is a mystery.
Transcriber’s Note: Find a Grave shows this was Carl and that he was born Oct. 11, 1895 and died July 19, 1899. He is buried in Riverside Cemetery.
