Dies a Terrible Death.
With his hack broken and legs
paralyzed. Axel E. Peterson, a
well known and respected resi
dent of Mosier District, w h s
biought into town 1 st Monday
morning- and taken to The Dalles
Hospital where he was placed on
the operating table. Dr. Robin-
eon of Mosier, and Drs. Fergu
son and Reuter of the hospital,
removed a section o f the spinal
eolumn which had been broken
and wa.s pressing on the nerves.
This pressure was what caused
paralysis of the body. The e f
forts of the surgeons were un
availing, however, and the in
jured man died early Tuesday
morning. The body was brought
back to Mosier and interred
in Odd Fellows’ cemetery on
The cause of the tragedy was
a pet mare. The animal had
been fed and pampered until it
was fat and frisky, with not
enough work to keep it toned
On Sunday afternoon
Peterson went to the held where
the mare was picketed to take
her to the barn. The picket line
consisted of a combinairo i rope
and chain, the rope end being
fastened to a loathe.- strap about
her neck. Peterson, who had
lost a hand year . ago, had a steel
hook fastened to the stub of his
arm. While !e ding the mare,
she suddenly jumped and pulled
on the rope The hook of Peter
son’ s arm caught in a link in the
chain and he could not extricate
it. The mare became frightened
and ran, dragging the man over
the une/en ground and rocks.
When Carl Fredrickson, who was
a witness to the accident, suc
ceeded in stopping the mare, he
found Peterson unable to move
anything but his arms and head.
Aside from being kicked on the
head by the horse, and a bruised
arm, the injured man felt no
pain, his broken back, strangely
enough, not hurting him.
When brought to town Monday
morning by his neighbors, Fred
rickson and Carlson, the unfort
unate man told several how the
accident happened. He seemed
to realize the seriousness of his
injuries and was anxious to have
a lawyer draw up his will.
Axel E. Peterson was a native
o f Sweden, about 58 years old.
He came to America 20 years
ago, living most of the time on
his homestead on Mosier creek,
Which he worked industriously.
He was o f a quiet disposition and
was considered a good neighbor,
better known and appreciated,
perhaps, by his countrymen, sev
eral o f whom lived near him.
He had no family and no rela
tions in this country. A father
and brother live in Sweden.
The funeral was held from the
Baptist Church, Rev. Mr. Stark

While away, he visited many ap

He found Oregon apples well es

About Poison Oak.
It is about time for people to
get poison ivy, poison oak and
kindred plants when gathering
flowers in the woods. The gov
ernment recipe for antidote in
such cases is to make a 50 per
cent, solution of alcohol—one half
-a n d to this add enough acetate
of lead to make a saturated solu
tion—as much as liquid will dis
solve. Wet a cloth in this solu
tion and lay it on the parts blis
tered by the poison. It will allay
the itching and effect a cure if
your blood is not in too bad a
condition. The remedy is rank
poison to take internally.
You can prevent being poison
ed by washing face and hands in
the above solution after return
ing from the hills where you
have been exposed to the poison
ous plants. Or, use a strong
salt brine or a solution of bak
ing soda in water. The poison is
an acid exuded from the leaves
and the lead, salt or soda solu
tions are alkaline and immediate
ly neutralize the poison.—Ex.

Oar Ridge Reporter made a
slight mistake last week in his
write-up about the “ pink tea.”
It was a “ green tea,” and it
wasn’ t the 17th of Ireland either.
There are several people on
our ridge, as well as in other
parts of Mosier District who do
not take their home paper, but
who make a point o f dropping in
at the many homes where it does
circulate to read what the “ Bul
letin has to say.” That’ s all
very well, and they’ re welcome
to read ours, even before we’ ve
had a chance to peruse it; but
does it show the right spirit?
A newspaper is a benefit to any
town or community and every
person who is at all interested in
his own community and his own
welfare, should patronize his
paper to the extent o f a yearly
