Knut Erickson death
-- A terrible accident occurred just north of Lyle, last Tuesday resulting in the death of Knut Erickson, the son of O. Erickson, tailor of Mona. He had been drinking and laid down by the side of the railroad track a ways north of Lyle and when the passenger arrived from north at 1:30, it struck him crushing his head and smashing his arm from which injuries he died a little pas midnight. He was about 28 years of age and a hard drinker. Another terrible result of intemperance.
