VICTIM OF BAD RUNAWAY IS RECOVERING

Mrs. A. H. STULFAUTH, who was injured in a runaway Monday morning is making excellent
progress toward recovery and has now passed the danger point. The accident was due to a single-
tree falling while she was returning from the home of Mr. and Mrs. T. A. SAGER, in the country,
where she spent Sunday. She was within one minute's ride of her home when the break occurred,
but the team switched down Third street and she and Daniel McKEEMAN, who was driving, were
thrown to the cement sidewalk with terrific force. He escaped with a sprained ankle and some
minor bruises, but she struck on her head and received a very severe scalp wound, requiring
14 stitches. Her left shoulder and side were also painfully bruised and one bone in the left
foot was broken.

BRIEF NEWS OF THE DAY

Arhur LANE of Kittitas was buried from here on Tuesday. Jack KELLEHER is occupying his new offices in his enlarged garage. Mrs. M. H. YAGER who died at Moscow, Idaho, was buried here on Monday. It is said the section men on the railroads have had their wages advanced from $1.35 to
$1.75 a day. K. E. McDONALD, formerly a merchant in Thorp, is now selling automobiles in Tacoma, and has
already had his picture in the papers. J. P. FLYNN, who went east because of the illness of his father, did not get to his home at
Springfield, Ill, in time to see his parent alive. A large automobile bus has been bought for the run between Cle Elum and Roslyn. It will be
quite late before the snow will permit it to be operated. It carries 16 persons. Workmen have been cutting down crooked and imperfect trees in the courthouse yard to thin
out the bunch. About 100 have been given the axe and the yard will show great improvement. Lloyd TOZER had a narrow escape from drowning a few days ago when he ventured into a swollen
creek. He was caught by the flood and sucked under, but fortunately regained his feet and
reached the bank. Chas. DESSIEUX's home, adjoining that of Mrs. SLEMMONS, just outside the city limits was
badly damaged by fire on Tuesday. Everything upstairs was lost but most of the furniture on
the ground floor was saved.

A SNOWSHOE HIKE OVER BLEWETT PASS

W. F. PATTERSON, the veteran miner of Blewett, was a visitor in the city a few days ago ... He
utilized the autolegging system, walking the entire distance, something like 50 miles. He has
been at the Blewett mines for 24 years and says this winter's snowfall exceeds anything he has
seen in all these years. His hike took him over the famous Blewett pass where he found snow
from 7 to 9 feet deep; thence he descended to Mountain Home, on this side of the summit, then
down through the Swauk, the snow holding out until he reached Horse Canyon, 18 miles north of
Ellensburg....
