Strawstack Saved His Life.
Minot.—C. L. Howell, who drives the Standard Oil wagon from Minot to points in the western part of the county, nearly lost his life in the blizzard while driving a four-horse team hitched to a heavy load of oil between Lone Tree and Berthold. The man was found in a hay stack by citizens of Des Lacs, Wednesday morning, more dead than alive and was taken to Berthold, where he is reported as recovering, though it will be a long time before he is well. His face, hands, and feet were badly frozen, though the doctors say he will get well unless complications arise.
