Columbia Encampment

I.O.O.F. of Crystal Falls lost a member in the sinking of the Titanic. Wm, Skoog, one of the members residing at Iron Mountain, went down with his entire family, consisting of a wife and four children. 

Mr. Skoog sold out his property at Iron Mountain last fall and went to Sweden for a visit. If he liked it there he intended to purchase property and settle in the old country but the ways of his native land seemed slow after having lived so long in America and he decided to return with his family and continue his residence in this country.

He sailed on the Titanic and is numbered among the missing. He was a fine citizen, representative of the best type of manhood, and his loss is a source of great regret to his fellow members in Crystal Falls.
