Our community were much distressed last Thursday morning by the news that Mr. R. M. Arnold was drowned in the Etowah river the day before. His body was found under the little boat. He had left home in the morning with the mail bag from Ford’s post office, and arriving at the boat landing he hung the mail bag on a bush, and it is supposed, went to the boat to bale out the water and fell out and was drowned. Mr. Arnold was a good citizen and had been a consistent and useful member of the Baptist church for years. He was a special friend of your reporter, and we tender our sympathies to the bereaved ones.
