Killed at Ferndale.
A fatal accident occurred near Ferndale, yesterday morning. Lulu, the 12-year-old daughter of F. W. JOHNSON, was thrown from a wagon drawn by a team of runaway horses and almost instantly killed.Lula [sic] and her sister Lena left the lumber camp owned by their father early in the morning and went over to the residence of Mr. MILLER who owns a ranch nearby. At about 9 o'clock they were ready to go back home, and as one of Mr. MILLER's sons was driving to Ferndale, they were given a seat in the lumber wagon. The horses became frightened, the boy lost control of them, and a run away was the consequence. The boy jumped from the wagon and escaped unhurt, but the girls were thrown out, and Lulu the eldest, so badly injured that she died by the roadside before anyone reached her. Lena, who is 9 years old, was picked up and carried to her father's came and medical assistance secured from Ferndale. She appeared to be suffering a great deal, and a message was soon dispatched to Whatcom for doctors. At the latest accounts she was still alive and her recovery was expected. The team that ran away is a bad one. Mr. MILLER himself is still limping from a broken leg received in a similar accident some time ago. The JOHNSONs are well known in the neighborhood, and little Lulu was a bright little girl, and a general favorite in the camp.
