ELEVATOR BURSTS; A MAN IS KILLED
Bismarck, N.D., July 10.—The west end of the Lonk elevator at Mandan let go Friday afternoon with a report that was heard all over town. Thousands of bushels of wheat were dumped on the ground while several thousand dollars damages was done to the building.
In making an examination to find the cause of the accident, the searchers came across the body of a man under the wheat. It was at first thought that he could be revived, but all efforts were in vain.
A card from an employment agency on the body showed that he had shipped from Duluth for Richardton, N.D., recently and gave the man's name as J. Kelly. Physicians say Kelly had recently been under the influence of liquor.
The body is being held pending word from the Duluth police department.
