His Body Found in a Windmill Tank by His Son.

Garrett Dangler, who has been employed on the C. B. Alexander place near Seabright for a great many years, was found drowned in the windmill tank on Monday afternoon. He was discovered by his little son, who was searching for him. Mr. Dangler was last seen alive about nine o'clock, when he had an oil can and was about to go to the windmill to oil the machinery. He did not come to the house for dinner and a search was instituted with the above result. It is supposed that he was struck by the revolving wheel and knocked into the tank, the fall stunning him, or that he was stricken with apoplexy or paralysis. Deputy Coroner Morris of Long Branch was summoned, and he took charge of the body. The funeral will be held from the Methodist church at Seabright to-morrow afternoon at half-past one o'clock.
