Girl Rocks the Boat and Death Takes Her and Party.

Gus Hammer, Ola Peterson, Lydia Olin and Anna Johnson, all residents of Muskegon, Mich., were drowned in Muskegon lake Sunday.

The quartet hired a rowboat for a pleasure trip on the lake, and it was capsized. The accident is said to be due to one of the party rocking the boat. A party in a launch passed the quartet shortly before the accident and declared that one of the girls was standing up, rocking the boat.
