Stubble Fire

Salesman Dies Suddenly.

J. B. Silver, traveler for a cigar factory, died suddenly last Saturday while in a sleigh en route from Grano to Lansford.

A young woman school teacher from Grano, bound for Minot, was in the sleigh with Silver and the driver. The men had been drinking. Silver suddenly lurched forward and fell out upon the snow dead.

The driver took the man's body to the side of a shack and drove on to Lansford, spreading the news. Silver's body, cold in death, was soon taken to Lansford.

The man had taken the place of Mr. Davies, who died suddenly at Crary only three weeks ago. Both men were well known in Minot.
