Mr. and Mrs. Neet and a crew have been camping at Gold Point, building a cabin for the lookout at that place. A big fir tree, loosened by recent rains, fell without warning upon the cook tent. The men were just in the act of sitting down to eat when the big tree fell directly upon the tent crushing the table, contents and stove, in fact everything within the tent. Luckily the men scrambled to safety by a narrow margin. Mr. and Mrs. Neet had left camp about 10 minutes before for supplies, or they might have been killed, especially Mrs. Neet, since she had been hurt previously by a horse." (The Eugene Guard)
