                Another Unfortunate.

      Jacob Argue, a yard switchman, fell from one of the cars in the yard last Friday night and had both legs crushed.—It seems that he had set his lantern down and was walking along on the cars, which were backing at the time and thinking there was one more car he walked off and fell to the track below with the above result. He was immediately taken to the Northern Pacific hospital and on Saturday morning Dr. Bigger amputated both legs, one below and the other above the knee. After the operation the patient seemed as well as could be expected under the circumstances and it was thought that he would get along all right, but on Monday night at about 12 o'clock he died. The case is indeed a very sad one as he was a young man just in the prime of life having but within a few months been married to a young lady from Canada. His wife watched over him from the time that he was hurt until his death. It was her wish that his remains should be sent to his native home for interment but as her means were limited it was impossible to do so and the funeral services were held at the Methodist church at 2 o'clock on Wednesday afternoon, the remains being laid to rest in Evergreen cemetery. The young wife has the sympathy of the community in her bereavement. (Brainerd Dispatch, 06 December 1883, p. 3, c. 2)
