KILLED AT SURING 
Levi H. Gillmore hit by Train on Crossing
Seen too late to stop.

            Levi Henry Gilmore was struck by the engine on the log run going north at 11:27 p.m. Wednesday on the main street crossing at Suring and instantly killed, his body being thrown several rods from the track. He was not seen by the engine crew until they were within about 200 feet of the crossing, too late for the emergency brakes to hold the train. Nothing more is known as to the accident.

The repeated sticking the point in the floor had picked away the wood until it was very thin or there was a hole and at the time of the accident as young Berghammer drove the rod into the floor it passed through and the point below caught a belt which gave the rod a jerk and the upper end was thrown over toward him, hitting him on the right side and inflicting a bad contusion of his right side and chest. He was immediately taken to the hospital and given attention and it is expected that he will be able to be out in a few days..

MISS EMMA JICHA AND WILLIAM HELLER ("BOB") are among the graduates at Oshkosh Normal this week. Miss Jicha has accepted a position as teacher in the Menomonie, Wis. Schools and Mr. Heller will go to the Tomahawk schools to teach manual training and set as coach in athletics. He should be particularly strong in the latter, judging by the record he made in football and basketball both on the Oconto High and Normal teams. And in view of the handy manner in which he used tools as a "kid" around the Reporter office and his subsequent training we will believe he will make good in the former.

 MRS. SILAS WILLIAMS of Nelson, New Brunswick, Canada came yesterday for a visit to her two sons, Percy and John Williams at the R.M. Fleming home. She was joined at Chicago by her daughter, Miss Nellie Williams of Boston, Mass. The mother and daughter had a rather unique experience in connection with this visit, neither knew the other was coming until one was seated in the Northwestern train at Chicago and the other walked in and took the seat behind her. It is unnecessary to say there was some surprise.

MR. AND MRS. PETER HELLER pleasantly entertained a number of relatives at a five o'clock tea Sunday afternoon, the occasion being their ninth wedding anniversary. They were presented with a beautiful cut glass bowl from their intimate friends and relatives. The house was beautifully decorated with carnations, roses and other flowers, and a good time was enjoyed by all.

BAD COMBINATION: 
Liquor, a Woman, Two Men and a Revolver

A woman, liquor, two men and a revolver made a bad and rather explosive combination last Friday nigh and in consequence Thomas Flynn landed in the hospital and George Barlament and the woman in jail.

After imbibing too freely Flynn, a lumber grader, who had a wife and two children boarding at the Megan House, visited the home of a woman of unsavory reputation. A little later Barlament appeared on the scene and Flynn crawled under the bed, Barlament opened fire with a revolver and three shots struck Flynn, one passing through the fleshy part of his arm, another from his side to his back and another entered a foot just below the big toe and is imbedded in the foot below the instep. He has so far recovered as to go to his home in Antigo.

Barlament skipped for the country but returned the next day and gave himself up to Sheriff Rusch. He was arraigned before Justice DonLevy Tuesday morning on a charge of assault with intent to kill, waived examination and was held for trial in circuit court. His bonds were placed at $5000, which he has been unable to furnish and is in jail.

The woman in the case was arrested and fine $50 for drunkenness and held as a witness in the shooting affray, bonds being fixed at $2000 which she has been unable to furnish and remains in jail.

DESERVES CARNEGIE MEDAL 

Heroism of James Ramsay Should Be Rewarded 

The heroism of James Ramsay in pulling two boys about his own age from the water and undoubtedly saving their lives near Sturgeon Bay July 10 deserves recognition with a Carnegie Medal.  Word of the affair was kept quiet and the boys made light of it at first through fear of alarming their parents and relatives.

A number of the boys from here were picking cherries near Sturgeon Bay and at this time had gone to swim at the stone quarries. Chester Morris was assisting Gail Kennedy in learning to swim and the two were warned by James Ramsay who was swimming out farther from shore that they were getting to deep water. Just at that time the bottom dipped precipitately and before Chester could turn Gail back they were in deep water and Gail, becoming frightened had grabbed Chester about the neck so he could make little headway.

After warning the other boys of the depth James dove and when he came up from under the water could see nothing of them. He immediately swam to their assistance and succeeded in getting them to shore although he had to break young Kennedy’s hold on him at one time and catch him in a different place so that he could not interfere with his efforts.

After they reached shore Chester was able to walk about half a mile to their quarters, with assistance, but when he reached there became unconscious and remained so for about two hours. A doctor was called and succeeded in expelling a large quantity of water from his lungs. James and Gail suffered little from their experience and all are all right although Chester was rather sore for sometime after.

James and Chester are 16 years old and Gail 15.


AT AUCTION BRIDGE

Eaten by Wolves

An American woman has been devoured by wolves. With a part of the skull, a rib, a piece of the femur and bits of clothing by which identification was made possible, Professor W. C. Hewitt of Oshkosh, Wis., an institute conductor has just returned to Dawson with all that remains of his sisters, Dr. Emily Chambers, for whose body he searched the frozen north two years.

The discovery of these few bones and the personal knowledge of the fate that overtook Mrs. Chambers sets at rest a mystery concerning her disappearance, Mrs. Chambers' body was devoured by wolves.

Mrs. Chambers went to Dawson in 1900. She longed for adventure and travel, so made a trip through a little known section of the Yukon with the idea of gathering material for a book. The itinerary decided on was one that would have appealed to many an old prospector and the woman's friends did their best to dissuade her from her journey.

On July 28th, 1901 she left on the trip from which she never was to return. Three years ago the mounted police discovered her diary, in which was the name and address of Professor Hewitt, her brother. He was notified of her disappearance and at once sought for the remains. He has been successful after two years. - Stephenson Journal
