Grand Forks Herald: One of the most distressing accidents that ever occurred in this vicinity took place near Fisher yesterday when Alice, the 13 year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Maynard Crane of Cooperstown, was crushed to death under the wheels of a binder. The little child was visiting the home of Mr. and Mrs. F. R. Parsons near Fisher, and was playing about the yard yesterday afternoon, with a number of other children. She was amusing herself with a little pony, which she finally hitched to the end of a binder tongue. In some manner the pony was startled, and started forward. The little child fell in front of the machine and the pony pulled the binder over her, the large wheel passing over her head, crushing the skull, death ensuing instantly.
