Monday, 2 February 1914, page 1 -- Snow Fighter Is Cut in Two by Whirling Rotary. Cut in two and his body hurled from the track by a powerful rotary snow plow, was the fate of Charles YOUNG, an employe of the Great Northern Railway company who lost his life Saturday night between Tye and the Cascade tunnel.
YOUNG was a track laborer connected with the snow-fighting gang. He became confused, according to reports, and stepped directly in front of a laboring rotary. The accident was not noted until the crew saw the snow covered with crimson.
Little is known about Charles YOUNG by Great Northern officers. The man, who was about 42 years of age, was one of the many men who drift into the hills with the bad weather and work with the snow gang for an indefinite time.
Snowfall Is Unusually Light—With a mean depth of only six feet of snow the Great Northern considers that the winter of 1914, thus far, has proven unusually modest. In spots snow lies deeper along the right of way, caused by wind and drifts, but that is the average depth.
The Great Northern has five rotaries in the hills traveling back and forth over the range. One rotary is sent through in advance of every train, which is keeping the track free from snow and allowing trains to come through virtually on time.

Monday, 16 February 1914, page 1 -- Suffers Fall While Asleep; Comes Here; Dies in Hospital. Unidentified Man Meets Accident in Mukilteo That Causes Death. Rolls from Top of Shingle Mill Boilers. Later Lapses into Unconsciousness and Dies; Nothing to Show Identity. The body of an unidentified man is held at the undertaking establishment of N. B. CHALLACOMBE today, while an effort is being made to learn who he was and locate, if possible, any relatives or friends he may have had.
Death came to the stranger in a strange way. He died last night at Providence hospital. The man was sleeping over the boilers at the Mukilteo Shingle company plant early yesterday morning and rolled off. He seemed to be only slightly dazed, and walked to the depot and boarded the Great Northern train yesterday morning for Everett.
Before the train reached this city the man had become unconscious. He was taken from the depot here to the hospital, and passed away without regaining consciousness. It was determined that when he fell off the [page 2] boiler he suffered a hurt at the base of the brain that started a slight hemorrhage that eventually caused death.
Nothing in the man’s possessions gives any clue to his identity. He was an American, between 45 and 55 years of age, slightly gray, clean shaved. He stood 6 feet or 6 feet 1 inch in height, weighing about 120 pounds. Evidently he was a laborer. The body has no mark or scars that would aid in establishing identity. The large toe of the left foot had recently been crushed, and the toe nail had sloughed off. It is believed the man was a shingle weaver named CUMMINGS.

The body reached Everett yesterday and was buried this afternoon at 2:30 from JERREAD’s chapel, Rev. William E. RANDALL officiating. J. E.

Monday, 16 February 1914, page 6 -- Mary LUMLEY, Aged 7, Meets Tragic Death. Mary LUMLEY, the 7-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur LUMLEY, who live on a ranch a mile and a half out of Mukilteo, lost her life by drowning Saturday evening under conditions so tragic and unusual that Coroner A. R. MAULSBY was called yesterday to investigate the case.
The child fell into an excavation filled with water to a depth of four feet, beneath an out-house, and was drowned. Her parents, noting her long absence from the house, made a search and rescued the body. Although all possible was done to revive the child, life was extinct.

Wednesday, 18 February 1914, page 8. Railroad Is Sued for Death of Little Child. It’s Alleged That Milwaukee Work Caused Formation of Deep Pond—and Child Lost His Life in It. Suit for damages in the sum of $2,999 was begun in superior court here today by Fred and Ella BARNHART, of Snohomish, against the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway company. The action is based upon the drowning of the 8-year-old son of the plaintiffs in a pond formed by a railroad embankment at Snohomish.
In constructing the railway line through that city the company built an embankment that impounded surface water to a depth of eight or nine feet. Upon this pond lads in that neighborhood are alleged to have played, paddling about on rafts and logs. On February 3 Lee P. BARNHART, son of the plaintiffs, fell from a raft there into the water and was drowned.
Negligence and carelessness of the railroad company in building the bank without providing drainage that would prevent the formation of the pond in which the lad was drowned is the charge upon which the claim for damages rests.

The statement was made that the infant’s death might have been caused by the presence of formaldehyde in milk, but an analysis of a sample made today by City Health Officer L. G. WOODFORD failed to produce proof that the milk had been treated with that preservative.
