SHELL LAKE MAN IS VICTIM OF TRAFFIC FATALITY FRIDAY NIGHT

Another traffic fatality has been added to the list of such deaths in Washburn county as the result of an accident which occurred on Highway 63 on the outskirts of Shell Lake last Friday night when Herman Hahn, 54, crippled World War I veteran and former resident of this city, was struck by a car and instantly killed.

Hahn was on his way home just north of Shell Lake that night and presumably fell to the pavement, where he was lying when struck by the car of Robert Allen of this place while Allen and several companions were returning from the basketball game at Cumberland late that night.

Coroner Harry W. Dahl of this city held an inquest on Wednesday forenoon of this week.  Serving on the coroner's jury was Charles Scalzo, S. G. Swanson, Joe Cuskey, P. E. Edwards, Art Jones and D. E. Hall.  The jury found that the accident was unavoidable, exonerating the driver and owner of the car.

According to information, the driver of the car was attracted by a pedestrian standing by the highway whom he thought to be a hitchiker.  The prostrate figure of Hahn on the pavement was not seen until too late to avert the tragedy.

Hahn was sorely crippled through the loss of both legs and was forced to get about with artificial limbs.  It is thought he may have slipped on the pavement and was unable to get up before the oncoming car was upon him.

Deceased was a resident of this city for a number of years before moving to Shell Lake.  He was employed on the county highway crew for several years and was quite well known here.

Surviving are his widow and a married daughter.

HANSON, George

DEATH OF GEORGE HANSON

(Sarona Correspondence)

George Hanson, age 23, son of A. J. Hanson, died at his home Monday evening about 9:30 after an illness of only a week of pneumonia.  George was a boy among the boys, a friend and companion to all, respected by his fellow men and bore a splendid reputation and spotless character.  He took a great interest in building up his hometown and has been a great booster for Sarona since moving here with his parents about two years ago.  he was also very active in the different benevolent societies during the great war.  We will never quite understand why one in the very flush of manhood should be called to take the last journey down the long trail.

Besides a father, mother and brother and other near relatives, he leaves a host of friends, who deeply mourn the loss of such a splendid young man.  Remains were taken to Shell Lake for burial.

HASKINS, Chester W. (aka C. W.)

C. W. Haskins Called Beyond

The following from the Arlington, Wash., Times chronicles the passing of C. W. Haskins, former resident of this city and well known to many of our readers, death claiming the venerable gentleman on Sunday, July 17 (1927), at the age of 79 years.

C. W. Haskins, a resident of Arlington since 1912, police judge and prominent in political and fraternal circles passed away at his home on Second street Sunday, July 17th, at 5:30 a.m.  His death followed an illness of a month's duration, the direct cause being gangrene poisoning which developed ten days after an operaton which he underwent June 14th when two of his toes were amputated for the relief of deformaties due to his feet having been frozen when a boy.  This injury had caused him great inconvenience throughout his life and had somewhat handicapped an otherwise active and energetic individuality.

Funeral services were held Tuesday at 2 p.m. at the chapel of Moll's new undertaking parlors under Christian Science and Masonic auspices, a large concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends being present.  Interment was by cremation at the Bonny-Watson mortuary, Seattle.

Chester W. Haskins was born February 22, 1849, at Fayston, Vermont, of the parents, Wright Haskings and Chastine (Spaulding) Haskins.  He, with his parents, moved to Wisconsin in 1865, settling at Hudson where he attended the public schools, finishing his education in any academy at that place.  He studied law but was not admitted to the bar.  After leaving school he engaged in agricultural and clerical pursuits, also being engaged in the hotel business at Turtle Lake and elsewhere for 18 years.

Mr. Haskins was married at Warren, Wisconsin, January 6th, 1875, to Alice Anderson, who died at this place April 19th, 1925, the couple having celebrated their golden anniversary in January of that year.  To them were born three children, two of whom, Mrs. Agnes Jackle of Everett and Mrs. Estelle Pringle of Arlington, survive.  A son, DeWitt, died at Spooner, Wisc., at the age of 22.  He also is survived by a granddaughter, Ell-Louise Pringle.  He had no living brothers or sisters, being the last survivor of a family of eight.

Mr. Haskins came to Washington in 1907 in the hope that a change of climate would benefit his health.  He conducted a newspaper, the King County Herald, at Falls City for a year and then returned to Wisconsin for his family, having sold the newspaper.  In 1908 they came west and settled in Everett where Mr. Haskins was connected with the circulation department of the Daily Herald until he moved to Arlington in 1912.  He continued to represent the Herald here and also engaged in the real estate and newspaper business, being part owner and editor of the Arlington Chronicle in 1912-13.  He served as police judge under Mayor Persun and was again appointed to that position by Mayor Shaw in 1926.  He also has served several terms as juctice of the peace here, having filled that officeat various timems during fifty years of his life.  In his capacity as justice he had joined in wedlock 102 couples, a record of which he was quite proud.  For fifteen years he had served as local deputy assessor, having but recently completed the assemssment for the present year.

Deceased was active in fraternal circles, having been a Mason for fifty years and an Odd Fellow for forty years.  He was a member of Arlington Lodge No. 146, F. & A. M., and of Pilgrim Lodge 187, I. O. O. F., Everett.  He was also a life member of Fidelity Chapter No. 78, Order of the Eastern Star.  He was the author of a brief history of Masonry and was greatly devoted to the tenets of that order, having reached the Royal ARch Degree.

His passing marks the end of an active and useful life and his death is a great loss both to his family and the community.
