Furnace Blows Up


Jumps from Train No. 1 While at Full Speed, West of Minot.

Conductor Perry, who makes Minot his headquarters and who had charge of Great Northern Train No. 1, reports the suicide of an unknown Norwegian, near Leeds, Wednesday night.

The man who was evidently about 25 years of age got on the train at Churchs Ferry with a ticket for Silvana, Wash. He was alone but gave no evidence of insanity.

When the train was about three miles east of Leeds and going at full speed the man jumped through the double windows and was dashed to the ground. A number of section men were sent out and he died a few minutes after they reached him.
