FORGOT IT WAS THANKSGIVING.
Andrew Siusar, who lives southeast of Minot, forgot that last Thursday was Thanksgiving day, so hitched up his faithful old oxen and drove a dozen miles to Minot with a load of flax. He spent several hours locating an elevator man, and when he arrived home tired and hungry in the evening, found one of his colts in a well. He says that was the worst Thanksgiving day he ever spent.
