Kicked in The Face By Horse and Seriously Injured
Carleton Sentinel Newspaper Jan 31, 1913

Woman Meets With An Unfortunate Accident---Husband Very Ill
Adds To the Distressing Situation.
Wednesday morning Mrs. James Brothers while attending a horse in the stable, was kicked by the animal in the face causing most serious injuries. The horse kicked with both feet and Mrs. Brothers received the full force of the blow. Dr. Prescott was brought to the scene as quickly as possible and did what he could to relieve the sufferings of the unfortunate woman.
The accident is particularly sad as her husband is very ill, suffering with cancer, and is at times unconscious.
Dr. Prescott says the injuries are very serious, the jaw being broken, and the teeth badly shaltered as well as severe cuts, two being through the lip.
If arrangements can be made Mrs. Brothers will be taken to the hospital.
A baby, four months old, is being cared for by neighbors, who are extending every kindness and assistance to the afficted family.

David Craig and Alex. Rogers
Both Carleton County Men

Carleton Sentinel Newspaper Jan 30, 1914
Word has been received here of the murder of Alex. Rogers and David Craig, two old time Aitken, Minnesota, men at their home at Poupore Siding, near Aitken City, by Harry Reeley, a supposed harmless imbecile who then killed himself.
Reeley, who was 35 years old of age, became infatuated with 16 year old Nora Hall, who lived with her grandparents near the home of the two murdered bachelors. The girl used to run over to their place and they took a fatherly interest in her. Reeley became jealous without any reason for it, sent her a note saying he was going to kill the men, and finally, the following night he went to the Rogers home and shot both of the occupants.
Matt Beland, another neighbor returning from a dance, went into his barn and found the body of the murderer lying nearby where he had shot himself. Giving the alarm a visitor of the neighbors to the Rogers home found both men dead. Rogers and Craig were both about 54 years of age, while Reeley was 35.
H. W. John, Milligan and Nathan Rogers, of Northampton, are cousins of Mr. Rogers, who is a native of Carleton County, while John Craig, of Lower Woodstock, and William, of Cabino, Que., are brothers of David Craig, who was a native of Carleton County.
The bodies of Rogers and Craig were taken to Cloquet and prepared for burial. A double funeral was held in the Methodist church, at Aitken, by Rev. A. L. Richardson, and the friends of many years intimate association were buried together in Lake View cemetery. Craig had no relatives.
"Sandy" Rogers was a man noted for his mild, quiet manner, and among the many acquaintances he had here during the days when Aitkin was a lumbering town, not a man has anything but friendliness and praise to speak regarding him. It is certain he never gave any sane man cause to take his life. Mr. Craig was of similar disposition and both were highly respected in their home community.
Their death is deplorable.

$4,500 Goes to Son's Heirs
Carleton Sentinel Newspaper June 6th 1913
Decision in Case of Deep Interest to Carleton County People

Before Louis E. Young, Judge of Probate pro hac vice. In the estate of Elizabeth Raymond, late of the Parish of Simonds, widow of David M. Raymond, an order was made on the 20th of May last for the distribution of the surplus of the personal property, amounting to $4500.00
Elizabeth Raymond died leaving one son, a person of unsound mind. By her will she bequeathed her personal estate to trustees for the purpose of supporting the son during his life time, and with a provision that if he ever became of sound mind the estate was to be turned over to him. The son lived some years and then died, and the question arose as to whether the residue of the personal estate would go to the son's heirs or the mother's heirs as at the time when the son died. If the property goes to the son's heirs then the Raymonds would take a share, but if only to the mother's heirs the Shaws would take the whole personal estate, Elizabeth Raymond being before her marriage a Shaw.
The judge of Probate decided that it would go to the son's heirs and directed the money to be paid to G. Hiram Raymond of Middle Simonds, who is the administrator of the son. J. C. Hartley appeared for the Shaw interest, M.L. Hayward for Handford Shaw, A. N. Vince for Thursa Mooers, one of the Shaw heirs, and also for the trustees, and W. P. Jones for the Raymond heirs. The case may be appealed to the Supreme Court.

Former Woodstock Man Elected
Mayor of Fairbanks, Alaska

Carleton Sentinel Newspaper June 6th, 1913

The voters of Fairbanks have selected the men who shall guide the course of the municipal bark during the coming term of one year. At 9 o'clock yesterday morning, the battle of ballots started and until 8 o'clock in the evening the skirmishing continued. The counting of the votes occupied until midnight, and the final result was awaited with interest by the residents of the city.
Murray C. Smith received the largest number of votes, leading the nearest man by 64 votes.
On him undoubtedly, will fall the mantle of mayor, for that honor is annually conferred on the person - with the highest number of votes to his credit.

The Citizens' ticket elected all of its men with the exception of Harry E. St. George and W. F. Whitely. The Non-Partisan ticket elected one of its men, William Baltuff and Dan Callahan, running indepently, secured a berth well above the tailenders.
Murray C. Smith is a native of Carleton County, and a brother of Louis Smith.

Caught In Shaft
Harley Dunlap Meets Terrible Death
Carleton Sentinel Newspaper July 11, 1913

Was Looking for Pigeons When Accident Happened-
His Young Companion Gave Alarm.

The town was shocked Wednesday morning when it was announced that Harley Dunlap had been killed in the carding mill by being caught in a rapidly revolving shaft.
The evidence given by his young companion tells the story of a boyish act that was attended with sad consequences. The boys went under the mill looking for pigeons and young Dunlap sat on the driving shaft--his clothing was caught and he was thrown violently around the shaft and was killed instantly. The mill was stopped as quickly as possible but not until the poor young fellow had been frightfully mangled. Coroner J. A. Lindsay was soon on the scene and empaneled a jury who viewed the remains.
The inquest was held in the evening, the jurors were:
J. S. Leighton Jr., Foreman
E. A. Burden
John A. Atherton
E. J. Clark
Hugh Dalling
James McManus
C. M. Augherton

Allie Tapley sworn said : I know Harley Dunlap. I was in his company, this morning, in front of the carding mill. We went under the mill to see if there were any pigeons there. Harley sat down on the driving shaft which was in motion and his sweater caught in the shaft and threw him round and round. When I saw he was caught I went to Henry Flewelling and gave the alarm. They shut the mill down and when I went back he was dead. I told Mr. Flewelling he was caught in the shaft and he shut the mill down. I have sat down on the same shaft.

Chief of Police Kelly testified--I was at carding mill this morning and saw body of boy fast to the shafting, his clothes wound around--I cut his shirt to clear him from shaft--He was about a foot from the cog gear. His clothes were caught in the key way and wound very tightly.

The jury returned the following verdict :-
We find that
Harley Dunlap came to his death by being caught in a revolving shaft in a carding mill run by
Aaron Clark on the 9th day of July, 1913,
and we do not attach any blame to any person. The death of Harley Dunlap was accidental.
We recommend that the attention of the factory inspector be called to the open and dangerous condition under the mill.
The body was taken to Millville Thursday morning for burial.
