Three Fatal Accidents.
Last Friday evening 12-year old
Harold Chitwood, son of Mr. and
Mr. D. J. Chitwood, of Chitwood,
went out to drive home the cows,
taking his rifle with him. Waiting
a reasonable length of time for his
return the father started out to hunt
him. After searching but a short
time he came on to the dead body
of his son. The cause of the ac
cident is not known but it is sup
ttosed the hammer in some way was
taught, discharging the weapon, the
bullet entering the boy's head. . Tin
death of this son occurred exactly
five months after the sudden death
of an older son, Ruf us.
Tuesday afternoon while working
in the logging camp on Depot slough
John Gatens,- 19 years old, was
struck by a cable and instantly
killed. lie was behind a stum
when the line whipped over striking
him on the back of the head anc
crushing the skull. He was tin
son of Game Warden James Catem
of Ona. The following morning the
Ixxly was taken to the home foi
Thursday of last week an un
known man was drowned while at'
omrjnS to crwy the lnoulh of th
.Siletz bay on a raft. The tide was
running out as he atteinped to cros.
and he was carried to sea, and the
body has not lcen recovered. Tin
intention of the man in making tin
attempt, whether suicidal or other
wise, will always remain a mystery.
The members of the Grand Armj
mid Woman's Relief Corps anc
citizens observed Decoration Day in
this city. In the morning they
marched to the cemetery and dec
orated the graves and in the evening'
services were held at the courthouse.
Rev. IYaice, acting as chairman,
made a short but interesting speed
then introduced R.v. J. R. N. Roll
of Corvallis, who came over on the
evening train to address our people.
Rev. Roll is one of the speakers in
the state, and having lieen a soldier
in the thickest of the battles during
the entire four years of the war,
had many interesting incidents to
relate. The speaker's principal
point was that that the war ia'cnded
jiikI that this the greatest country
on eartli was ajain united stronger
than ever before. The speaker was
talking to the men that were his
deadliest enemies during the con
flict, but he left no doubt in the
minds of his hearers that nil en
mity and strife was ended and that
all were brothers.
