A Sad Case
Jas. Dorsey, an aged man who was making the trip from Kansas to Colfax, Wash, with private conveyaance and had as a companion his little 5 year old daughter, fell from his wagon, near Summerville, last Saturday and received injuries which proved fatal.
Dr. Clouchek was called to see the injured man but could do nothing for him.
Death came Sunday night, without Dorsey regaining consciousness. The position of the little daughter who is thus left alone with strangers, is indeed a sad one. It is supposed that the little orphan has relatives at Colfax but they could not be found at the time of her fathers death.
