PULLED IT INTO THE RIVER.
While moving a house from Hickson to the Minnesota side of the Red river, the team pulling it became frightened at the bridge and jumped over the railing, taking the house and three men into the river twenty feet below. Two of the men were severely injured, while the third, Lars Olson, was so badly bruised and crushed that his recovery is doubtful. The furniture was a total loss and the building was badly damaged.
