HORSES AND LOAD LOST
FOUR HORSE TEAM AND LOAD OF FLAX LOST THROUGH THE ICE—HEAVY LOSS
McKenzie Journal: Hugh Myers' four-horse team and a large load of flax went through the ice on the river at the Brevig crossing Tuesday evening of last week and the owner narrowly escaped the same fate.
Mr. Myers, who lives near Berg, was on his way to White Earth and reached the river about dark. It is said that all winter there has been an air hole in the ice near the crossing and it is supposed that he drove into it. In addition to the darkness, water on the ice due to the thaw and rain of the previous days, made it almost impossible to discern such places.
A thousand dollars will scarcely cover Mr. Meyers' loss.
