Mutilated Body of Man Found
Scattered Over Railroad
TERRIBLE ACCIDENT AT FREE-
MA N WEST OF CR00K3J0N,
Victim of Accident Unknown
Investigation as to the Cause
of His Death.
The Crookstbn Times for this
morning gives the following ac
count of a terrible accident which
took place a short distance west
of that city on the line of the
The horribly mutilated remains
of an unknown man were found
this morning at Freeman by the
Northern Pacific train crew that
arrived from Grand Forks on a
frieght train at about noon.
Freeman is a small station be
tween this city and East Grand
Forks where no agent is station
ed and the remains were found
about four feet from the rails on
a wagon crossing. The yictim of
the accident was horribly main
ed, both legs and one arm having
been completely severed from
his body and the head stove in,
one side being gone entirely.
The portion of the body found
was entirely naked, a portion of a
shirtband around the neck of the
remains being the only stitch of
clothing on the body. Lying
along and on the track and scat
tered over a distance of 300 feet
to the east of the body were dis
membered portions of the re.
mains, and a necktie, collar, a
pair of shoes and the remnants
of a blue serge vest. There were
no rings on the fingers of the
dead man, and nothing found
with the scraps of clothing that
would serve as a means of identi
fication, but three miles further
west the section crew found a
coat and vest in the pockets of
which was discovered a bunch of
keys. It is possible these may
lead to determining the dead
As near as could be determined
the victim was a short heavy set
man, with very heavy, light-color
ed eyebrows and heavy but very
light colored hair. The clothing
was so rent and_ begrimed from
being dragged that it could not
be determined whether the man
was well dressed or not, except
ing that the piece of the. vest
found was made of good cloth.
Marks on the tracks and along
the rails showed that the body
had been dragged at least 300
feet from the time the man
was hit or fell from a train be
fore it was finally thrown to one
side of the track.
It cannot be determined ex
actly when the accident occurred.
It is supposed, however, that the
man was hit or fell off the frieght
that went west last evening, or
the passenger that went to Grand
Forks from here this morning
early. The coat and vest were
found at Merrill station three
miles farther: The* section boss
is quite certain that the remains
were not lying by the crossing
when he passed the spot this
morning, but it is barely possible
that he might have been looking
in another direction^/The re
mains will be brought to this
city and an inquest will depend
on the circumstances that the
coroner may be able to discover
on his trip of investigation this

that I should tell you what a won

The day before Easter I was so

my voice was almost choked by
the cough. The same day I re
ceived an order from you for a
bottle of your Cough Remedy.
I at once procured a sample bot

the medicine. To my great relief
the cough and coldhad completely
disappeared and I was able to
preach three times onEaster Day.
I know that this rapid and ef
