Rev Henry Archer Has Close Call.
About ten o’clock this morning while fishing from a boat in the river, Rev. Henry Archer was suddenly seized with a fainting spell, fell overboard and narrowly escaped drowning. On account of his age, he being about 75 or 80 years old, the effect of the sun caused him to become dizzy and he was seized with the fainting spell and toppled over. However, the cold water revived him somewhat, and he grasped the gunwale of the boat and held on until he was rescued. When taken out of the water he was completely prostrated, but Dr. O’Donnell, who was quickly summoned. succeeded in reviving him. Rev. Mr. Archer is a native of Union Parish is one of the oldest Primitive Baptist preachers in North Louisiana and at one time was mayor of Farmerville. He resides in Millidgeville, just below the city. — Monroe News.
