Bad Accident.
Joe KRICK knew it was loaded for bear, but his foot slipped on a log, and he may thank his stars that he received only part of the charge of buck shot. As it is he is at St. Luke's hospital with a crippled arm, which is liable always to be crippled. A portion of the charge entered the biceps and ranged upward, breaking and splitting the bone, but missing the artery. Drs. MARKLEY and BIGGS attended the patient, and fear nothing worse than that the patient may have a flail joint. The accident took place near Silver Beach, Sunday afternoon. The patient suffered intensely, but was under the influence of anesthetics when the wound was cared for.

Sunday, June 24, 1894:

Joe KRICK had quite a severe secondary hemorrhage Saturday morning, caused by the sloughing of the mangled flesh. His general condition is favorable.

Wednesday, June 27, 1894:

The funeral of Joseph KRICK will be from the residence this afternoon. The funeral will be conducted under the auspices of North Star Lodge No. 120, I. O. O. F. The firemen will also attend.

Accidental Drowning.
Deloy WARD, the four-year-old grandson of Mr. and Mrs. L. BOULANGER, of Silver Beach, was drowned in Lake Whatcom, Sunday at 11:30 a.m. The little fellow was in the boathouse with his grandfather a few moments before the accident and ran out to play on the wharf. He was not missed, as he was in the habit of doing so, until his grandmother came down the stairs for a pail of water. Under the wharf at the foot of the stairs of their house, his hat floated on the water, and she was horrified to see his body lying face downward on the bottom in four feet of water. He was taken out and Dr. BIRNEY called, but all efforts to resuscitate him were in vain. He had been in the water about ten minutes. His parents, who live in Spokane, were notified, but were unable to attend his funeral, which took place at 3:45 yesterday afternoon.

From Thursday's Daily.
Herbert JAMESON was run over by a hose cart last evening. When the company was practicing; the fireman in front of JAMESON stumbled, throwing him down and the cart passed over his body. It was at first thought that he was not injured, but his father, Dr. JAMESON, later was quite alarmed; fearing that he had received in internal injury.
