James Robinson, 25, of Carleton Place and native of Timmins, died of a heart attack on Sunday while swimming in the Mississippi River opposite the Recreation Centre supervised pool. Deceased is a brother of Mrs. Earl Kemp who resided in Almonte for several years and who now operates the Moderaire Beauty Salon on Bridge Street, Carleton Place. Mr. Robinson came to Carleton Place a short time ago and was employed in Findlays Limited. He weighed 230 pounds. He was halfway across the river when he took the seizure and sank in 15 feet of water. John Drummond, son of Mr. and Mrs. Gordon Drummond, and Ken Williams, son of Mr. and Mrs. Omar Williams, went to his rescue and although they are both’ only 12 years of age, they dragged him to the shore. They answered calls for help from the victim’s brother-in-law, Earl Kemp. Artificial respiration was applied but examination by Dr. J. A. Johnston revealed that the young man died of a heart attack as there was no water in his lungs.

On July 1st, a young married woman of this town lost a considerable sum of money. She travelled on the Pembroke local to Ottawa that day and when she arrived found that her money was gone. The only time she opened her purse was at the C.P.R. station here, and it is likely that the money fell out of her purse at her feet when she bought her ticket. An advertisement in this paper failed to bring results. Someone picked that money up and that person must have a very elastic conscience to be able to keep money that belongs to a young mother who can ill afford to lose it. If the finder ever suffers remorse, it can be returned anonymously to the Gazette office and we will see that it gets to the proper party. Now and then when money is lost the finder does return it. When this happens, it recalls the lines written by Longfellow: “Whene’er a noble deed is done “Our hearts in glad surprise “To higher levels rise.’
