Unknown Male………..…Nov 23, 1911

Unknown and with little possibility that identity of the unfortunate will ever be revealed, the body of an unknown man who died at the hospital after a delirious illness from pneumonia Saturday night, lies in the undertaking parlors of O. W. Stone, where the remains will be held till word can be obtained from Castlerock, WA, where the man must have held membership in the Foresters of America, a worn card of the order badly defaced having been found in his pocket. About ten days ago, the man who had been staying at the Davenport hotel became seriously ill and was removed to the hospital. Only once during his confinement were the hospital attendants able to arouse his consciousness, when he told them that his name was Still. He was about 40 years old, sandy complexion, height 5 ft 8 inches, and weight about 150 pounds. The name on the old lodge membership card was completely obliterated. (D Tribune)
