ARTHUR SHAKESPEARE, the seventeen-year-old son of SAM SHAKESPEARE, was drowned Tuesday afternoon in a pond on his father's farm between three and four miles west of Lamoni. He and several companions were bathing in the pond when he was attacked by cramps and sank before assistance could reach him. Efforts were made at rescue, but the body was not recovered until life was extinct. The accident occurred about 4 o'clock.
