Angry Deer Tramples Man To Death

William F. Wallace, cousin of Mrs. James Cox of Springfield, was gored to death by a deer in Hendricks park, Eugene, Sunday between 10 and 11 o’clock.  Wallace, who had been employed by the park commission to feed the deer in the enclosure, went to the pen at the usual hour this morning with a bucket of feed.

He was alone, and no one witnessed the attack, but from indications, it appeared that he opened the gate, set down the bucket of feed and was struck from the rear by the deer.

It is supposed that he was in the act of arising when the deer struck him, piercing the artery.

Wallace then ran out through the gate, the deer following him.  Prints on the ground showed where the man and deer had fought all the way down the hill to the gully, where Wallace’s body was found at 11 o’clock by a neighbor.  The body was warm, indicating that he had died only a short time before.

A physician, who lives near the park, was called.  An examination showed Wallace died from the loss of blood.  There were few other marks on his body.

Wallace’s father-in-law, John Eaton, a Civil War veteran, died yesterday, and the funeral is set for tomorrow afternoon.  It is probable that both funerals will be held at the same time.

An Inhuman Act

The Cottage Grove Leader of Feb. 21st has the following:  One of the most inhuman acts of the age is reported near this place.  The victim was Millie Waud, wife of Ed Waud.  She was sick and her husband went to his father’s home which is only a few rods distant, and left her alone with her little children, one a babe only four days old and two others the oldest being four years old.  None of the family went near her for several days, not even her husband.  She had to depend on those little children to make fires, and once she got out of bed and crawled on her knees and made a fire.  Some of the neighbors went to see her and found her in bed helpless and nearly dead.  They did all they could for her but it was too late.  She died Friday evening Feb. 14th.  Report says her husband would not give her the medicine the physician brought her but put it in his pocket and gave her morphine instead.  Dr. Oggleby took her some brandy and loaf of sugar and as soon as he was gone Ed drank the brandy and ate the sugar so the neighbors say.  Anything that was brought for her he would eat or drink it.
