A little boy, the son of Edward Halaas
, met with a serious accident last week. He was playing in a field where his father was plowing and was so hidden from view by weeds that when Mr. Halaas came around where he was he could not see him and drove over him with the oxen and plow. The first Mr. Halaas knew of his son being there was when he heard him scream and he stopped the cattle as quickly as possible but not soon enough to save him from being injured. One of his legs was broken in three places and his back badly injured.
