ROBERT IPIETTE LEAPED FROM
WAGON JUST AS IT WA8
SMA8HED BY TRAIN.
Grand iForks, IN. ©., Oct 22'.—Rob
ert Piette, aged 19, was nearly killed
on the Thirdi avenue crossing just off
Kittson street about 3:30 o'clock yes
terday afternoon, escaping only by
jumping from the wagon box in which
he wa» riding and which was smashed
to kindling an instant later.
The lad drove his horses onto the
track before he discovered a caboose
just beyond which was a locomotive,
bearing down on him. As he saw the
caboose coming toward him he tried
to jerk the horses 'back, but they
jumped forward*, while he himself
leaped for safety. !He was still in
the air when the wagon was struck
by the caboose and smashed to bits.
Young iPiette was only slightly in
jured, hurting one knee in hitting
the pavement. The horses were not
scratched, although they were pulled
down the track several feet by the
tongue of the wagon before they were
freed.
The boy is a son of John Piette, tbe
market gardener residing on Minne
sota Point
The crossing gates were not down
at the time, and the boy says he did
not hear any warning bells.

•Kelley, on a warrant- charging
with setting a prairie fire. Politlm*
sky was brought to Minot and gm
bonds iy the sum of 9200 for his ap
pearance before the justice of tkm
peace at Douglas next Wednesday af
ternoon.
The prairie fire which iPointkowaky
is charged with having caused* mia
one of the worst in the history of
Ward county. The defendant claims
that a party of campers had been mm.
thep lace the night before the Ann

ing they did not extinguish their cusp
fire completely. While he was getting
a team of horses ready to go out Strto
the fields he claims a wind fanW

could get there the fire had gotta*
beyond his control. PointkowakyV
neighbors, however, claim that fee
commenced to burn a small space (or
a stack of grain and that the fire
got beyond his control. The flnt
spread rapidly, extending eastward
and traveling at terrific speed over
hundreds of acres of land, destroying:
everything in its path, including sev
eral fields of flax, stacks of grain and
hay and going over many fields cov

The evidence was quite conclusive,
tbe Wife's person plainly showing the
effects of the beating she had received
at the hands of her husband. It was
further brought out that it was not

something of a habit with the lras
band to "trim up" his (better half now
and then,' because of certain family
grievances. The judge gave the pug
nacious husband thirty days in the*

Baking Powder Biscuits
light as a Feather'
By Mrs. Janet McKenzie Hill, Editor of
the Boston Cooking'School Magazine
Baking Powder Biscuits made by this
recipe are so far ahead of ordinary ba
king powder biscuits that, if once tried,
you will never nse any other recipe.
Try it the next time you run short of
bread. Save this recipe. 29
E Baktad Powder BbniU
Three cups flour to cup short
ening 3 level teaspoonfuls Baking
Powder about 1 cup milk or water I
teaspoonful salt.
Sift three times, the fiour, salt and
baking powder. Work into the flour the
shortening, nsing lard or butter for
shortening. Then mix to a very soft
dough with the milk. The softer the
biscuit enters the oven, the lighter it
comes out. Never knead baking powder
biscuits press the dongh into shape aad
roll lightly. Cut in small shapes and
hake on a sheet or very shallow pan in
a hot oven. In placing biscuitsln the
pans place well apart, not allowing edge*
to touch. Small biscuits are better than
large ones. Large biscuits do not have
the proper amount of time to raise and
bake.
