Manure and Rubbish

Killed by Cars at Wilton

Wilton—A horrible accident occured Wednesday morning when Mose Chamberlain of Oakes, a Soo brakeman running out of Bismarck, fell in front of a moving car and was so badly cut to pieces that he lived only a few hours.

The mangled body was placed in the caboose and rushed to Bismarck on a special train, the crew making the run in thirty-seven minutes. The body was taken to one of the local hospitals, where he lived only for a few hours. He was conscious until a few moments befor ehe breathed his last.

Wilton to Bismarck is about 25 miles, so the hospital run was done at 40mph, probably as fast as safely possible on those tracks. —Ed.
