Hand Blown Off

Out of His Head.

The fireman on the west bound train named Mike Kearney, went out of his head yesterday. He had been sick with the Red river fever and this was his first trip out. When he reached here he showed signs of it but it was not until he arrived at Alsop that he became unmanageable. Here he jumped from the engine and ran out on the prairie. The passenger train proceeded on without him and the men on a freight corralled him and brought him to Jamestown where he was kept in the cooler until this afternoon when he was taken to Fargo by John Moore. He probably went to work too soon, and more rest will bring him out all right.
