|death - mill||Smith, Fred|| Man Killed in Getchell Mill |
A sad accident occurred in the Wolverine Lumber company's mill near Getchell last Saturday forenoon by which a young man by the name of Fred Smith lost his life. It seems that it was a habit at the mill to shove logs into the saw before the machinery had got fairly started, with the result that the belt slipped somewhat. To keep it from coming off, Mr. Smith took an axe, as others had done, and held it against the belt. Somehow the handle caught between the belt and the pulley, with the result that the axe swung around and the head of the axe struck him in the stomach. Word was immediately sent for the doctor, but the man died in twenty minutes.
The deceased was about 21 years old, born in North Carolina. He had been in this section of the country about two years. Before coming to this country he had belonged to the army, and he was buried in a soldier's uniform.
The body was brought to Marysville for burial, and the funeral was held from the Marysville Undertaking Parlors Monday afternoon. A number of people were present both from Getchell and Kellog Marsh where he was well known, having worked for some time in the Tatham-Nelson mill.

Marysville Now Has Fully Organized Fire Department
The Marysville Volunteer Fire Department was fully organized at a meeting held last Friday evening, and C. H. Schaefer is foreman or chief of the company, Chas. Raymond, second foreman; E. H. Blair, Treasurer; Archie Mapes, secretary. The old constitution and bye-laws (sic) governing the former company organized under the old fire ordinance, were adopted. The department will meet the second Tuesday evening of every month.
At present the department consists of only ten members. That number will be increased later, and a hook and ladder company formed.
The company held its first practice Wednesday afternoon. Three taps on the fire bell has been adopted as the signal to call the fire department together for any purpose whatever except fire. To increase the efficiency of the department in reaching the scene of a fire quickly, the Council has been asked to give a liberal reward to any one having a horse, who first responds at the Town Hall after an alarm to haul the hose cart to the fire.
