Young Girl Dragged to Death.
Lillie Christensen , the clever
year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs ,
L. Christensen , was dragged tc
death Monday afternoon by a
pony. She and her sister Ruby 1
years old , had gone out some dis
tance from the house and were
gathering chips for fuel. They
had led the pony with them , and
were filling sacks with iuel and
placing them on their small wagon.
Lillie was holding the pony by the
halter rope when it became fright
ened and jumped. " The halter
rope , so far as known , tied itself
in a half-hitch about the little
girl's wrist and her weight held it
fast. The pony started away
over the prairie dragging the girl.
After running about two miles the
horse ran to the yard fence and
stopped. As soon as the rope
slackened the body was free. Ru
by , the younger sister , caught the
same horse and without saddle or
bridle , rode to town to inform her
mother of the awful accident. Mr.
McLeoJ , Coroner Lewis , Harri-
soi Davenport , Douglas Donald
an I Mrs. Chrisfcensen went out
immediately in the former's auto.
The body was stripped of clothing ,
only the shoes remaining. The
dress1 was found about a mile from
the house. Both wrists were bro
ken and the body terribly bruised.
Mrs. Christensen was in Valen
