Mandan Man is Fatally Hurt

Peter Schoock Crushed Under Cars, Dies Later

Returning from Ascension Day mass at the Mandan Catholic church this morning, Peter Schoock, 70, emulated the example of several youngsters and crawled under the couplings of two freight cars in the Northern Pacific yards just as an engine was hooking up to them.

One wheel of a freight car passed over his legs, crushing them off and causing other injuries.

Mr. Schook died shortly before one o'clock.
