• H.P. Williams of Meadowbrook met with a serious accident Thursday morning of last week, while engaged in his duties of flagging down cars on this side of the summit of Snoqualmie Pass. A car struck him as he was attempting to flag it down, fracturing one of his legs and badly bruising the other.
• That (in)famous band of deer hunters from Snoqualmie, made up of Nate Tippie, June Moore, Ralph Russell, Bert Crotts and Jack Russell of Hamilton, left Oct. 27 for the Okanagan country in quest of big game. They returned Monday with a marvelous tale of adventure and three fine bucks. It seems that Tippie shot a deer, then walked up to cut its throat. The game beast was not as dead as expected, and led Tippie on an active pursuit.
