HIS CHILDREN SAW HIM DROWN.

Hector Bonne, a Belgian Gardner,
Lost His Life in the Blue.

In the presence of his family of four children, Hector Bonne, a Rosedale gardener, was drowned while fishing in the Blue just south of Dodson last evening about 7 o'clock. He had taken his children for a day's visit at an uncle's, Charles Cula, near the Harrisonville bridge, not far from where the accident occurred.

Several men were fishing there and some were intoxicated. Bonne waded into the water banteringly with his clothes on, and all seemed to think when he dropped out of sight that he was making fun for the children. But he had stepped off a ledge and was drowned without coming up. In a few minutes the dead body was recovered by R. H. Hopkins, a farmer, who was there fishing. Bonne was a Belgian. Deputy Coroner O. H. Parker sent R. V. Lindsay, a Westport undertaker, for the body. With his wife and children, Bonne lived just beyond the end of the Rosedale car line.

OPEN CARS READY FOR SUNDAY.

New Service Today Also on the
Rockhill Extension.

If everything is lovely -- including the weather and it stoops raining long enough to make Easter bonnets possible, open cars will be run on some of the suburban street car lines today. Swope park cars were run through the city yesterday from the shops on East Ninth street to the Forty-eighth street barns, to have them in readiness for to-day's business.

It is expected that even though it remains nasty there will be enough courageous ones to swell the street car business beyond ordinary proportions, and if the sun shines every available car will be put into service.

Commencing today every other Rockhill car will be run through to Fifty-first street. The fare is a nickel, and from Waldo to Dodson a nickel.
