Harry Hulse Drowned While Clamming in the Bay

Harry Hulse, aged sixteen years, son of the late Sidney Hulse, of Belford, was drowned while clamming in the bay of that place last Friday. He was about a mile and a half off shore and was clamming with a long-handled rake. While pulling hard on the rake the crosshead came off and he fell forward into the water. One foot clung to the side of the boat. John Thiel, who was working nearby, saw the accident. He started to his rescue and called to him to cling to the side of the boat until he reached him. As Mr. Thiel neared Hulse's boat the young man's foot slipped from its hold on the boat and he went headlong into the water. Mr. Thiel watched fo the body, ready to grasp it, but it never rose to the surface. Clammers dredged for the body all day where it went down but could not find it. The search was renewed the next day but the body has not yet been recovered. Hulse's parents are both dead. He made his home with his grandmother, Mrs. Alfred Meyers.
