FORMER RESIDENT DROWNED
Scott E. King, a former resident
of. this county and well known to all
the older residents, was drowned al
Seattle, presumably in Ijxko Wash
ington, near which hli home stood.
Th accident occurred, Saturday,
May- 22, the first news reaching here
Friday, when S. E, Harris, nephew
and namesake of t lie deceased, came
here on a visit. Mr. Harris had re
ceived a telegram from his mother
telling him of the -sad event. No
particulars were given and the sup
position that he was drowned in Lake
Washington is based on the fact of
the location of Mr.Klng's home, and
that boat riding was quite often a
pastime of Mr. King. The message
said the body had not been recovered.
