JUMPED FROM TRAIN AFTER CAP
Mandan, N. D., Oct. 2.—Soon after a farmer at Huff boarded the train, he was heard to yell loudly and he jumped from the train. The train was under headway and he turned several somersaults before righting himself. Fearing he was fatally injured or had suddenly gone insane the train was backed up three-quarters of a mile. The farmer boarded the coach again and announced he had recovered a 50 cent cap that had blown from his head. The trainmen used rather exciting and torrid language in expressing their opinion of the man who caused nearly twenty minutes' delay.
