Flora Engles, the three-year-old daughter of Mrs. Max Engles, a widow residing northwest of Evanston, in the district known as "No Man's Land," was drowned Thursday afternoon about 4 o'clock in a ten-gallon jar containing only ten inches of water. The child was playing in the yard and fell into the large jar. When a search was made by Mrs. Engles, she was unable to locate the child. She called neighbors and Mrs. M. Borey found the body in the stone jar. All efforts to resuscitate the tiny victim were futile.
