Heroic Rescue at Port Alfred
Mr. Berry BAKER of Grahamstown was for the tenth time a prominent figure in an exciting rescue from drowning on the east beach at Port Alfred at about noon on Saturday when the tide was on the turn.
It appears that an elderly gentleman, Mr. FLEMMING got into difficulties while bathing and that Miss Kathleen ALLEN, aged 15, in attempting to assist him had also got into difficulties.
There were about sixty onlookers on the beach.  Some of these seized a lifebuoy but then appeared to loose their heads.
At the critical moment, Mr. Berry BAKER appeared on the scene immediately rushed to the rescue with the lifebuoy which he placed over the head of Mr. FLEMMING who was by this time exhausted.
Mr. BAKER was assisted by Mr. KRISCH, while Mr. WILMOT of Grahamstown rendered help to the girl.
Mr. FLEMMING was soon revived and neither he nor the girl are any the worse for the accident.

Queenstown Lads’ Heroic Rescue Work
Gonubie Bathing Tragedy.
On Wednesday, December 28, a drowning tragedy took place at Gonubie, when a young Pretoria man, John KELSKENS, lost his life.
KELSKENS and a companion plunged into the sea to rescue a boy whom they thought to be in difficulties and were carried out to a sandbank by the strong current.  Two scouts and two boys from Grey College, Bloemfontein, reached the spot and the boy was rescued, but all others were now in difficulties.
It was at this stage that Jack PARSONSON and Billy HARVEY, two Queen’s College boys dashed out, prepared the life-line and took the buoy in themselves.  They managed to rescue a man called WALKER and two scouts.
By this time KELSKENS had a companion, for a Mr. NELSON had jumped from the rocks near the beach an after a magnificent swim, practically got across the bay, reassured KELSKENS.  Shortly afterwards KELSKENS became unconscious and NELSON held him for fully twenty minutes while PARSONSON and HARVEY mad frantic efforts to reach them.
PARSONSON took the line out alone on its fourth journey, as HARVEY was by this time exhausted.  It was then noticed that KELSKENS’ body had slipped from NELSON’s grasp.  NELSON flung himself on his back and by floating reached the inner channel, which washed him to the shore unconscious.  He was soon brought round however, after artificial respiration had been applied.  KELSKENS body was found later, up the river.
The original report of this accident in the Daily Dispatch makes no mention of either PARSONSON of HARVEY, but the above is the story an eye witness.

Fatal Accident
A young gunner, B MINNAAR (22), of the 1st Battery South African Field Artillery, received fatal injuries at Roberts Heights on Tuesday morning when he was thrown from his horse after the team had bolted.  It appears that the team of six horses was harnessed to a sledge carrying concrete when the swingle-tree broke and frightened the horses.  They bolted, and MINNAAR received severe injuries to the head.  He was operated on at the hospital but died about three hours later.  He was single and came from Potschefstroom.  His father was visiting him and was with him when he died.  MINNAAR has a younger brother in the battery who was also with the team.

In the Estate of the late Edwin CHADWICK, of Queenstown, C.P., who died at Queenstown, C.P., on the 14th December, 1931.

A Farmer Killed.
Mr. Edward Robertson VELS, a well-known farmer in the Bethlehem district, was this week killed by lightning about four miles from Bethlehem while riding on horseback.  Mr. VELS was riding alone, and it was not until late in the afternoon that Mr. H.H. MASSYN, passing that way, found the deceased and his horse lying in the road.
Whether Mr. VELS was bound for his farm or for town is not yet known, but the position of his horse indicated that was on his way to Bethlehem.  It is possible, therefore, that his wife and family on the farm, some 18 miles away, thought him safely in town and owing to the bad weather conditions, were not apprised of his fate until the next morning.
