Taken from the Sept. 9, 1909 Iron Trade Journal. Typos left intact.

Alice Victoria Anderson, the three-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. W. Anderson, residing on Sixth street died at a late hour Monday night as a result of injuries received from burning several hours earlier. She was taking her usual afternoon nap in the bed room, when her mother heard screams and quickly rushed to the room, where she found the child upward from her dress. Mrs. Anderson quickly extinguished the fire, but not before the little one was so severely burned that she expired four hours afterwards in spite of the efforts of Dr. J. D. Budd to save her.

The least there is said about the ball game Sunday between Cloquet and the locals the better it will sound for the visitors. Sufficient to say it was the poorest exhibition of the game our people have had to endure this season.

President House of the Iron Range road was here this week and his coming started a rumor that a new depot is to be erected here in the near future and that a site is now being considered. The city in general is taking on new life in view of the fact that the mining explorations in the vicinity are more than meeting the expectations of the promoters, and there being a prospect of the Alger-Smith company purchasing a large tract of timber near Trout Lake. This purchase would lend new life to the sawmill district for unless they acquire some more timber the mill will not run later this fall. -Tower News.
