LEGS BROKEN IN SLEDDING ACCIDENT
Brian Spade, age 10, had the misfortune to break both legs in a sledding accident Sunday at the Pascal Spade ranch at Sagle. The breaks are above the knees so he will have both legs in casts for some time. Brian, a Sagle School student, will live with his grandparents, the Pascal Spades, until his legs heal.

Jan. 11, 1922 – MASKED BANDITS WORK FAST
Two masked men, armed with revolvers, held up a number of men in the lodging house above the B&D poolhall Sunday night, taking a total of about $50. They entered a room at the lodging house unnoticed and so quickly turned the victims to the wall with their hands up that identification was almost impossible.
The family of H.E. Krebs was released from quarantine after a siege of several weeks. Mr. Krebs and his daughter, Winnett, were both ill with smallpox.
ICE HARVEST IN FULL BLAST
The Sandpoint Ice & Fuel company is cutting 11-inch ice at the Humbird booms. John Selle says it is the finest ice he has cut since he has been the town’s ice man. The ice company will put in 800 tons and is employing 40 men this week with the icecutters and teams. The Pend d’Oreille creamery is putting up 200 tons which is being cut near the city dock, and several local firms are putting in their ice supply this week.
BUNGALOW-PACK RIVER VALLEY NEWS
We are all wearing a smile these days and why shouldn’t we, when we get daily R.F.D by our doors? A New Year gift from Uncle Sam. Everyone was busy the last few days nailing up mail boxes along the newly extended route in anticipation of the mail man.
