CONDUCTOR ROSS HURT.
Conductor James Ross, in charge of an extra freight train from Devils Lake to Carman, met with a serious accident last Friday. The train broke in two at Petersburg. The forward end stopped at the station, and just as Mr. Ross stepped out of the caboose, the two sections came together with a crash, throwing the conductor violently to the ground. Mr. Ross sustained serious injuries but fortunately no bones were broken. He is now at his home in Devils Lake, and it will be some time before he will be able to resume his run, but as he carries an accident policy he will suffer no pecuniary loss by his enforced idleness.
