J W Tanner Is Injured, reported in Beaver City Press, July 17, 1908

Contributor: MollyM Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

J. W. Tanner Is Injured Joseph W. Tanner had a close shave from being killed on Tuesday with a runaway team. The cause of the trouble was the explosion of several giant fire crackers in front of the M.M.&Co. store. The team was standing there hooked to a heavy logging truck, Mr. Tanner was standing near and when the first explosion occurred he jumped for the lines but before he could get hold of them the team was off at full speed. Mr. Tanner was doing his best to get control of his team and at the same time hold his place on the running gear of the truck when the team collided with an electric light pole breaking the neck yoke and singletrees and tearing the harness to pieces. The impact threw Mr. Tanner forward over the front gear with considerable force. No bones were broken, but, he received a severe shaking up and will carry several big bruises on his body for some time to come.

A Serious Accident, reported in Beaver City Press, Sept. 4, 1908

Contributor: MollyM Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

A Serious Accident Joseph W. Tanner, of the firm of Tanner and Oakden, while working near the saw mill last Sunday, met with a painful and serious accident. Mr. Tanner was doing some chopping when his ax caught a limb above him changing the direction of the blow, the ax striking Mr. Tanner between the 3rd and 4th toes, and literally splitting his foot in two. The cut extends back almost to his ankle. The injured man was brought to town as speedily as possible and Dr. McGregor called in and the foot given proper attention. Mr. Tanner is doing as well as can be expected under the circumstances. It is only a few weeks since he was crippled up in a run away and had only recovered from the hurts received at that time. (Beaver City Press, Sept. 4, 1908, accessed at Spelling corrected.)

Life timeline of Joseph W. Tanner

Joseph W. Tanner was born in 1856
Joseph W. Tanner was 13 years old when Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton founded the National Woman Suffrage Association, breaking away from the American Equal Rights Association which they had also previously founded. Susan B. Anthony was an American social reformer and women's rights activist who played a pivotal role in the women's suffrage movement. Born into a Quaker family committed to social equality, she collected anti-slavery petitions at the age of 17. In 1856, she became the New York state agent for the American Anti-Slavery Society.
Joseph W. Tanner was 18 years old when Winston Churchill, English colonel, journalist, and politician, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Nobel Prize laureate (d. 1965) Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill was a British politician, army officer, and writer, who was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. As Prime Minister, Churchill led Britain to victory in the Second World War. Churchill represented five constituencies during his career as Member of Parliament (MP). Ideologically an economic liberal and British imperialist, he began and ended his parliamentary career as a member of the Conservative Party, which he led from 1940 to 1955, but for twenty years from 1904 he was a prominent member of the Liberal Party.
Joseph W. Tanner was 32 years old when The Great Blizzard of 1888 struck the northeastern United States, producing snowdrifts in excess of 50 ft (15 m) and confining some people to their houses for up to a week. The Great Blizzard of 1888 or Great Blizzard of '88 was one of the most severe recorded blizzards in the history of the United States of America. The storm, referred to as the Great White Hurricane, paralyzed the East Coast from the Chesapeake Bay to Maine, as well as the Atlantic provinces of Canada. Snowfalls of 10 to 58 inches fell in parts of New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut, and sustained winds of more than 45 miles per hour (72 km/h) produced snowdrifts in excess of 50 feet (15 m). Railroads were shut down, and people were confined to their houses for up to a week. Railway and telegraph lines were disabled, and this provided the impetus to move these pieces of infrastructure underground. Emergency services were also affected.
Joseph W. Tanner was 37 years old when Electrical engineer Nikola Tesla gives the first public demonstration of radio in St. Louis, Missouri. Nikola Tesla was a Serbian American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist who is best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system.
Joseph W. Tanner was 49 years old when Albert Einstein publishes his first paper on the special theory of relativity. Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. He is best known to the general public for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2, which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation". He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect", a pivotal step in the development of quantum theory.
Joseph W. Tanner was 61 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
Joseph W. Tanner was 72 years old when Walt Disney character Mickey Mouse premieres in his first cartoon, "Plane Crazy". Walter Elias Disney was an American entrepreneur, animator, voice actor and film producer. A pioneer of the American animation industry, he introduced several developments in the production of cartoons. As a film producer, Disney holds the record for most Academy Awards earned by an individual, having won 22 Oscars from 59 nominations. He was presented with two Golden Globe Special Achievement Awards and an Emmy Award, among other honors. Several of his films are included in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
Joseph W. Tanner was 74 years old when Great Depression: In a State of the Union message, U.S. President Herbert Hoover proposes a $150 million (equivalent to $2,197,000,000 in 2017) public works program to help generate jobs and stimulate the economy. The Great Depression was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, beginning in the United States. The timing of the Great Depression varied across nations; in most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until the late-1930s. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression of the 20th century. In the 21st century, the Great Depression is commonly used as an example of how far the world's economy can decline.
