mour J. Leighton, of Lawrence, Mass., a student of the American School. lost his life in an attempt to rescue two young girls who were out canoeing on the Merrimac river. The strong current carried the canoeing party over the dam to their death. Mr. Leighton, who had the reputation of being a powerful swimmer, sprang to the rescue. He had almost reached the upturned canoe, when his head struck one of the many rocks, and in a moment he had sunk from view, dead but a hero.
Mr. Leighton was an earnest student. The thoroughness of his work had won for him the esteem and respect of his instructors.
