Stricken At Funeral


Christine, N. D., Nov. 28.—Michael Pilkie, aged 76 years, was fatally gored by a bull on his farm, siz miles from this place last evening. He died at an early hour today.

Mr. Pilkie was working about his barnyard when the beast became infuriated and charged at the aged man, knocking him down and then goring him frightfully with his horns. He was badly lacerated and suffered terribly till death came as a relief.

The victim was one of the pioneer residents of North Dakota having come to this state thirty-eight years ago. He was one of the wealthiest and most highly respected citizens of the county.
