MINOT MAN HAS NARROW ESCAPE FROM FAST MAIL
Minot, N.D., Feb 5—Herman Miller, 38 years old, of this city, narrowly escaped death when he endeavored to cross in front of the Great Northern's fast mail, No. 27, about 10:30 o'clock, near the stockyards east of town.
One of Miller's horses was instantly killed by the accident, but other than a few bruises, Miller escaped uninjured.
Miller was thrown to the ground and was found later by some employee of the railroad, asleep by his dead horse. Dr. Kermott was immediately summoned, but an examination disclosed the fact that Miller suffered nothing more than a few slight bruises and a good shaking up which apparently failed to bring him out of his delirious state.
