Sawyer Man Escapes Death.
Pete Podhola, a prominent Sawyer real estate man, started for his farm on horse back during the recent big storm. When he came to a deep coulee filled with snow, he took the saddle and bridle off the horse and started to walk home. Growing weary he threw himself down exhausted by an old hay stack, where his clothes soon froze stiff and his limbs became numb. He managed to dig a hole in the pole of hay and kept from freezing to death. He spent two days in this place, when he was rescued.
