RAY FARMER LOST LIFE UNDER SLEIGH.
HEAVY LOAD OF OATS OVERTURNED PININING PAUL SORENSON TO GROUND
Ray, Feb. 6.—Paul Sorenson, living several miles from this place, was killed under a load of oats which overturned covering him so that he smothered in the grain. His brother who was with him at the time, was quite badly hurt and brought to this place for medical treatment.
Meager reports state that the unfortunate man started for home with a large grain tank full of oats, and while on the road his sled broke down. With a brother and brother-in-law, he secured another tank and after unloading the grain from one sled to the other, started homeward. Fearing the sleigh would overturn two of the boys tried to brace it up over a slanting strip of road but where unable to do so and were caught beneath the overturned sled with the result that one was killed and the other severely injured.
