Pend d’Oreille Review

Sept. 8, 1919 — CITY BREVITIES

Mayor Elliott, Dr. Wendle, president of the commercial club; Sheriff Spoor and “Peg” Jacobson, “mayor of Dover,” have been promised places in the reception committee at Coeur d’Alene on the occasion of President Wilson’s visit to that city next Friday.



The sawmill and planer belonging to Charles and Oscar Turnbull at Sagle was destroyed by fire last night, according to reports received in the city this morning. Members of the family were awakened at about midnight to find the mill a mass of flames. What part of the loss is covered by insurance is not known.



Stanley Black, 8-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Black, last Friday lost the first joint of one of his fingers when his hand was caught in a home-made merry-go-round he and some of his neighbor children had built on a vacant lot near the Black residence, 820 Lake street. This is the lad’s second accident of the summer, the first having occurred when he was bitten by the monkey belonging to the Sanger circus, which exhibited here about two months ago.
