'A Man Killed By A Bull' -- <i>Illustrated London News</i> 25 Aug 1849, page 142
"A Man Killed By A Bull" -- Illustrated London News 25 Aug 1849, page 142
"A fatal accident happened to Mr. Samuel Crumpler, of Lytchet, near Poole, on Sunday last. About five o'clock in the evening, whilst crossing a field, a young Norman bull ran at him, and knocked him down; he immediately regained his feet, and was about to chastise the ferocious animal, when he was again knocked down and gored. Some children who witnessed the occurrence then ran for assistance, but on its arrival Mr. Crumpler was dead, and the enraged animal standing over the body, which presented a most distressing spectacle. the clothes, excepting the boots, were all torn off, and the body torn and pierced in many parts. Mr. Cumpler's hat and stick were found about 100 yards from the body, and the impression is that the animal had taken the body on its horns, and either carried or dragged it to the distance at which it was found. An inquest was held on Monday before Mr. I. O. Chislett, deputy-coroner for the hundred of Cogdean, when the jury gave directions that the bull should be killed. Had caps been on the horns of the bull the consequences would not, probably, have been so distressing."

"Day Develops No New Cases" - The Daily Ledger, Tacoma, Washington, 4 Nov 1918
Health Officers Cheered at the Letup of Influenza

With not one new case of influenza reported to the health department Monday morning, the city officials are cheerful in the hope that the epidemic is about over.

Although this condition of optimism prevails here, Dr. T D Tuttle, state health officer at Seattle, in telephone conversation with Miss Edith I. Moody Monday morning, insisted on everybody in the state wearing a mask. No formal order, however has been issued by the state health board to this effect and Dr R D Wilson, Tacoma health officer, is not making any new rules in face of the favorable outlook.

At the health office conditions are assuming the normal. CW O'Flyne, quarantine officer, after a week's tussle with influenza is back on the job. Miss Edith I Moody, statistician of the health department had nearly two weeks of flu experience, but is back. All others in the department are now free from the disease and eager to a fight against the spread of the epidemic.

Hospital Still Short

The emergency hospital is still a busy place. Three new cases were taken in Sunday, but four were released. There is still a serious shortage of help at the hospital, although several public spirited person have been volunteering their services. Mrs. Hiram Argue, wife of Dr. Argue has been a faithful assistant to Miss Rose Peterson the city nurse. Harry Pelletier has been volunteering in the evenings for services as intern and has put in several mights until midnight.

Four of the regular staff of assistants at the church hospital are now ill, including J D Montgomery, the male nurse who at the end of his first week in the place refused to take any pay for his services.

The following deaths from pneumonia were reported from Saturday to Monday:"

16 names, including Mrs. Alice Raby, 37, 1651 So 35th."

"Mrs. Schamber Passed Away Easter Morn" - Dispatch Democrat, Ukiah, California - 10 Apr 1942 - Front Page
"Funeral Services Will Be Held in Ukiah Wednesday"

"The joy of Easter was overshadowed in Ukiah by the death of Mrs. Winnifred E. Schamber (Peggy), wife of E.H. Schamber of Ukiah. Mrs. Schamber passed away in San Francisco where the final stand was made against death in an illness that lasted more than a month.

Sorrow is deep in a community where Mrs. Schamber was known and loved. Mrs. Schamber was born in Vallejo and had made her home in Ukiah a little over four years. During that time she assisted her husband at the Cleland-Schamber Funeral Home and joined in the life of the community with her husband and two young daughters. Young, beautiful, possessed of a spirit exceptionally gentle, loving and kind, her death is a blow beyond understanding and thought to the community of which she was a part.

Mrs. Schamber is survived by her mother, Mrs. Amy Roberts of Ukiah, her husband, E.H. Schamber, and two daughters, Lois Jean and Ruth Marie. Peggy Roberts and Eugene H. Schamber were united in marriage in Honolulu December 21, 1928. Mrs. Schamber was a member of the Central Union Church of that city.

An active and interested member in local organizations, Mrs. Schamber graciously and conscientiously served the community through the Auxiliary to Lewis White Post, Ukiah Business and Professional Women's Club, Saturday Afternoon Club, and Cultus Club. She was a member of the Order of Eastern Star, Honolulu Chapter.

The deepest sympathy of a grief stricken community is extended to the bereaved family."

"Moses Morris, 97, isn't as good a man as he used to be. His years are beginning to tell on him. Time was when he could drink anything - whisky, cognac, beer, or wine. He has softened up. Now he qualifies the 'anything.' 'Yes, sir,' said the youngest 97 year old man in San Francisco yesterday. 'I drink anything as long as it has a kick to it.' Mr. Morris, who lives at 357 Fifteenth Avenue, is one of the senior B'nai B'rith lodge members of San Francisco. He joined Hope Lodge, No. 126, at Stockton back in 1869. In 1914 they held the golden jubilee of the lodge up at Stockton. Mr. Morris was the only surviving charter member present. Now the children of those who were present at the jubilee and have passed on, ask him to tell about it. He comes downtown whenever he feels like it, 'hasn't been beaten since the Civil War at pinochle,' and is planning to save his pennies for a trip around the world when he is 110. When he gets old he plans to stay home and take it easy, but now --- 'I hate to stick around the house! Don't you?' quoth he."
