His Friend


Young Man Working on Albert Susak Farm North of Minot Instantly Killed When Big Plow ran Completely Over Him - Neck Was Broken.

Steve Wasna, a young man 21 years of age, who was working on the Albert Susak farm nine miles north of the city, was instantly killed about four o'clock Monday afternoon when he fell beneath the big steam plows. He had walked between the engine and the plows, while they were in motion, to get a drink. After drinking some water from a jug, walking along as he did so, he started to walk out and in some manner fell. Before the plows could be stopped, he had been caught beneath him, and they ran completely over him. His face was cut badly clear across by one of the plows and his neck, back, and one arm were broken.

Judge Murray went out to the farm almost immediately after the accident took place, and brot {sp} the body to the city, after taking testimony and placed it in the morgue. The remains have been buried here.

Wasna formerly lived in Minot, where he was employed on the railroad.
