Minnesota Man Killed.
Great Falls, Mont., June 5.—As the east-bound Great Northern freight was pulling out of the yards here early this morning a switchman discovered the body of Charles Nelson dragging under one of the cars. He was being jerked along by his head, which had become fastened between the iron brake and the wheel. Big gashes has been cut in one side of the head and the wheel had crushed the skull on the other. He died in a few minutes. Little is known about Nelson here, except that he came from Red Wing, Minn.
