    " COOKTOWN, August 4.
    When a motor car containing eight persons toppled over into Saltwater Creek, about eight miles from Cooktown, yesterday morning, Mrs. James Gavin, sen., of Toowoomba, was drowned. Her husband was in the last stages of exhaustion when rescued.
    A motor car party, comprising Act- ing-Sergeant Gavin and his wife and three children, Mr. and Mrs. Gavin, sen., and the driver, Mr. C. Ure, left the town on Sunday morning, intending to spend the day with friends on the Endeavour River. When approaching the Saltwater Creek, eight miles from Cooktown, the car refused to negotiate an incline. The driver, Mr. C. Ure, backed the car, and then went forward again. It is surmised that the gears then jammed, and one wheel of the car left the crossing, and the vehicle toppled over into the creek in 4ft. of water. Most of the occupants got clear of the car, but Mrs. Gavin, sen., was drowned. Her husband was in the last stages of exhaustion when rescued, but he revived under treatment, although he suffered from shock, as did all the other members of the party.
