HOME GLEANINGS.


Fred Abel, who has been working for the Northwestern Lumber Co. at A. G. Gaffney's camp on section 11 west of the river, was killed Wednesday noon at 12:30, while working on the landing. The logs gave way and two logs rolled onto him.

 

The body was taken from the pile and brought home to his father's. Mr. Gaffney was near the landing and saw the logs begin to roll and yelled to Abel but he did not get out of the way. Ed Hawkins who was working with him escaped. Fred Abel is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Abel of the West Side, and is about twenty-three years old.
