" While playing on the old Payette River Bridge, Woodward Clelland met with a terrible accident, which has since proved fatal.
Three boys, Woodward Clelland, Delman McKamey and Brooks Landon, were fishing near the old Payette River Bridge and as boys will, were climbing the superstructure when Woodward struck the high power electric wire. The shock went right through him, coming out at his feet. The boy fell onto the floor of the bridge. Mrs. Sam Walker, who was passing, summoned help and the boy was rushed to the Hospital at Ontario, where Drs. Avey, J. C. and I. R. Woodward worked with him, doing all that medical skill could suggest, until two o'clock this morning, when the little fellow passed away, without having regained consciousness.
The doctors stated that the blow was so violent and sudden, that the child could not even have known what it was that struck him down. The accident occured at about seven o'clock Wednesday evening. No funeral arrangements will be made until the nearly distracted mother can be consulted.
Woodward Clelland was eleven years old, and is the youngest son of Mrs. Frank Cazier. It is not an empty phrase to say the boy was popular, his bright jolly disposition made him a general favorite and there is not a mother in Payette today whose heart is not with poor Mrs. Cazier in her hour of terrible grief."
