Former Macon Young Lady Loses Life
Through Overturning of Boat.

Florence, S.C., Jun 7. Miss Kate Knoblock, formerly of Macon, Ga., but lately a stenographer in this place, was drowned this afternoon through the overturning of a boat on a mill pond near here.  She had gone out with a party of friends for an outing and had then embarked in the boat for a row.  Miss Knoblock was very popular here, and her death has cast a gloom over the town.  She was about 23 years of age.
