Frank S. Gordon
Meets Tragic Death
This community w a s greatly
shocked Thursday morning to
learn that Frank Gordon, the
hardware merchant, had early the
! previous evening been drowned in
; a deep pool at Rippling Waters.
Mr. and Mrs. Gordon, Hazel
Stockman and Eddie Morton had
driven to Rippling Waters for a
short outing. They h a d gone
swimming, Mr. Gordon, having
gone into the water, sank almost
immediately and did not come to
the surface even once. The ex
planation of this is that he died
probably not from drowning but
because of heart failure.
Archie Bryaut, who happened
to be up the stream a little way,
heard the shouting and hurried to
the spot. The body could have
been in the water not more than
half an hour. It was brought to
the surface a n d to the bank
through the effective and praise
worthy work of Will Harrison and
Harold Sappington. The hurried
and persistent use of the pulma
tor, securied at the substation,
failed to resuscitate and Mrs. Gor
don and those who stood by were
presently convinced that the life
of our well known fellow-towns
man had left the body of clay.
At this writing, Thursday, 2 p.
m , the body is at the Buxton
undertaking establishment. Ar
rangements for the funeral have
not been completed, awaiting the
arrival of the Rev. Mr. Gordon,
brother of the deceased, who lives
in Astoria. The funeral will prob
ably be held at the Methodist
It goes without saying that the
deep sympathy of the community
goes out to Mrs. Gordon, to the
father and mother, and to the

A Pitless Prune
When W . L Cady was in Cali
fornia four years ago he visited
Luther Burbank, the plant wizard,
Mr. Burbank showed him a pit*
less prune, which he had pro
duced b y cross breeding. Mr.
Cady bought one of the trees and
set it out on his lots here The
tree bore fruit for the first time
this year. The prunes are quite
without pits, except that on one
side of the little kernel there is
the vestage of hardness resem
bling the substance of a pit-wall.
The prunes are delicious in flavor,
but are a little smaller than the
average of Italian prunes. This
may be accounted for by the fact
that the tree stands much in the
