On this day: Jan. 12, 1901

The cause of death of F. Sloan, who was buried in Walla Walla January, 1, came to light when it was learned that Mr. Sloan had been stuck in the leg with a hat pin by Miss Boone at the Temple house at Prescott on December 26. The pin had broken off in his leg. Blood poisoning set in, and the patient grew worse rapidly and died.
