A small mountain stream that furnishes water power for a sawmill at Huguenot, four miles north of here, was the scene of a plucky rescue yesterday afternoon on the part of Osmun [sic] Griffin, the nine-year-old son of Albert Griffin of that village. The recent heavy rains have swelled the rivulet to a torrent. Late in the afternoon Osmun [sic] Griffin and Lulu Taylor, the eleven-year-old daughter of Joseph Taylor, were playing along the shore.
  • (cont) Suddenly the little girl, made dizzy by the swiftness of the current, fell into the water and was carried down the stream, bobbing up and down for nearly an eighth of a mile. The lad followed on the shore, crying loudly for assistance. At a shallow place in the water he waded into the swift current, and although its force almost threw him from his feet, he reached the middle just as the girl was floating by. He grasped her, fought desperately against the current, and brought her to shore.
