Mr McDougall is making good progress towards recovery; Miss McDougall's condition was reported this Thursday as fair. Miss McDougall was cleaning a pair of gloves with gasoline She was near the kitchen stove. In some way the gasoline caught fire, and Miss McDougall's clothing became ignited. She rushed outside endeavouring to extinguish the flame. Mr McDougall, who was in bed, was aroused by his daughter's screams and went to her assistance. He also was badly burnt. Miss McDougall's burns are very serious and she is in a dangerous condition. McDougall, Elizabeth (I39870)
202 (Medical):Mr. Duncan's long illness was all the more tragic because he was suffering from leucaemia [leukemia] for which there is no known cure. Of the three local young people whose illness last spring was diagnosed as leucaemia, he alone responded to treatment temporarily and hope for his ultimate recovery was held for some time. Duncan, Allan McLaren (I2885)

204 (Medical):Mr. John Young, a well-known citizen of Almonte, was killed at the main street crossing of the C.P.R. on Saturday evening about 7 o'clock. He was driving across the railway in a buggy when a freight train travelling west struck him. Young, John (I11146)
205 (Medical):Mr. Leeson held the position of superintendent of bridge construction of the Northern Pacific Railway for a long time and was in active discharge of his duties when the accident occurred which resulted in his death thirteen hours later. He had left the station with a gang of men ahead of a freight train. The freight train hove in sight behind them at a narrow pass and they were obliged to set their hand car up on its side against a bank and hold it there for the train to pass. Mr. Leeson stepped across the strack to pick up something and then stepped back to the side where his men were. No on knows how the accident took place, but it is supposed some gravel must have given way under his feet and caused him to sway towards the track, when the engine struck him on the side, throwing him a great distance, breaking several ribs and inflicting other sever injuries. The train was reversed at once and the injured man taken to Spokane. No less than seven doctors were called, but their services were of no avail to save his life. Leeson, Andrew (I10986)

207 (Medical):News was circulated that Robert Hamilton, well known railway section foreman, had been killed by a freight train about two miles west of Shawville at mileage 47.
Foreman Hamilton and his assistants, Arthur Horner and John Horner, were on the handcare, preceeding eastward, when a freight train over took them. The freight was a particularly heavy one, loaded with logs, with an engine ahead and one at the back of the train. When the crew of the first engine saw the handcar, it was unable to stop soon enough to avoid hitting it.
Before the train struck the handcar, the two Horner men had jumped to safety, and as their vision was blocked by the engine they were unable to tell whether the foreman had jumped off the car or not.
After hearing the testimony of the sectionmen and trainmen, and C. F.C. Powles, who stated the death was due to a fractured skull and other injuries, Dr .L. Fena County Corner, of Campbells Bay declared that an inquest would not be necessary.

247 (Medical):Traffic Accident Injuries Claim Second Victim in Town Fire Chief
Almonte lost one of its most popular and dynamic citizens, Wednesday evening, when Harry H. Houston died in the Rosamond Memorial Hospital as a result of injuries received in a traffic accident on highway 44, Saturday afternoon, August 25th. He was in his 58th year. As recorded in last week's paper, Mrs Houston was riding with her husband in a light truck bound for Ottawa Exhibition when another vehicle of the same kind drove across the highway bound from Carp to Stittsville. It was driven by Ray Bell of the last mentioned village. The two machines collided and all three people were injured. Mr and Mrs Houston were brought to the local hospital where the latter died early Monday morning, Aug 27th. Her funeral was held on the following Wednesday. At first it was believed by attending physicians that Mr Houston had a good chance for recovery, barring complications. But as the week wore toward a close his condition took a turn for the worse. He spent a poor week-end and keen anxiety arose among those closely in touch with him. He did not improve with the result that death ensued Wednesday evening. It is believed that shock of his wife's death and the mental depression it caused took all the fight out of the grieving husband and made him an easier prey to the injures he had received. 
Houston, Harold Henry "Harry" (I31496)

McEwen of Carleton Place, County Coroner was called and said there would be no inquest. Hamilton, Ivan Charles (I19824)
