Recluse Strangled

Ole Bayum was firing a threshing engine near McHenry when the end of the boiler let go and blew him 60 feet. He is in a Fargo hospital and will escape with a few scars from the steam.

A threshing machine blew up Saturday afternoon southwest of New Home and Alfred Strunkness was badly burned and his skull fractured. Dr. MacKenzie removed two of the pieces of the fractured skull and the patient who is not quite eighteen years old is getting along as well as could be expected.
