Body of Murdered
Man in Car of Oats
Mott, N. D., Oct. 21—Local author
ities this afternoon received a tele
gram from the police of Minneapolis
stating that the dead body of a man,
identified as one Crofton, has been
found in a carload of oats.
There were four seals on the car
and Twin City officials are positive
that the man was murdered and
his body placed in the car, which
was shipped from this point by the
Occident Elevator on Oct. 12.
Papers found on his body were
responsible for identification.
Local people know of no person by
the name of Crofton. It is believ
ed that he was here employed as a
harvest hand, and was presumably
murdered and robbed.
In the absence of Sheriff and
coroner, Editor J. T. Charmley of
the Mott Spotlight has talffen charge
of the investigation. He is trying
to ascertain whether the seals on
the cars were changed after it left
St. Paul, Oct. 21—The body of a
man half buried in a car of grain was
found today at the plant of the Feed
Mill Co., Minneapolis.
A bullet wound back of his right
ear, his head beaten and his body
battered, leads the police to believe
the man was murdered. Papers
and letters scattered among the
grain indictte that the murdered man
was Joseph R. Crofton, of Maddock,
N. D. The car was billed from Mott,
N. D., to Minneapolis.

Raising pigs is the big thing with
the contestants in the boys' and girls'
pork production contest. Milton and
Mildred Pierce, of Ellendale, are both
in the contest. Their litters started
even with 12 Duroc Jerseys, but one
of Mildred's died. The total weight of
the litters have remained about equal.
The pigs are on alfalfa, each
lot having a little pasture. When it
was warm they dug a wallow for their
pigs and carried water from the house
to fill it.
They have taken a great deal of care
to provide their pigs with both com
fort and the most nourishing ration.
They are feeding according to the di

North Platte river generally carries
a considerable volume of water,
while the South Platte is dry except
during times of floods, because its wa

further upstream. The North Platte
is 650 miles long and drains about 28,
000 square miles. At the city of
North Platte the river has a maxi
mum discharge, according to the
United States Geological Survey, of
about 20,000 cubic feet a second and a
maximum discharge of only 70 cubic
feet a second. Its average volume of
flow during the nine months from
March to November is about 3,500
cubic feet a second.

Overland Trail suffered from attacks
by Indians and white outlaws, who
were wont to swoop down unexpected

the luxuries of the railway train to
realize the hardships and dangers en

that very different physical conditions

resembled that of an antelope but was

pair, over the eyes, curving inward
