Accidental drowning at Auchmithie

On Friday week, Stewart Eston, fisherman in Auchmithie, while gathering dulse on a rock near that place, fell into the sea and was drowned.  He has left a wife and two children.  This is the fourth son, besides her husband, whom his aged mother (who is still alive) has had the affliction to find herself deprived of by the watery element.
