Wahpeton Man Is Killed By Train

Wahpeton, N.D., Mar. 6—Michael A Skauge met death in a tragic manner, when he was run down by a freight train switching on the Northern Pacific track.

An engine and car switching near the depot on the main track started to back rapidly down towards the Milwaukee track and before Mr. Skauge could step from the track struck him, throwing him across the rail and cutting him in two just above the hips.
