Able Addresses Upon Mission Work at M.E. Church Friday and Saturday
At the Methodist church last Friday and Saturday was held a missionary rally.
The afternoon session on Saturday was not largely attended, but the evening
sessions on both days was attended by a good sized crowd.
Dr. F.B. Cowgill, of Mankato, opened the evening session Friday with a brief
address, in which he stated the aims and objects of the rallies here and
elsewhere. In the absence of Dr. J.B. Trimble, Dr. Beck, a native of Nebraska,
but for twenty years a missionary in Korea, and superintendent of the publishing
houses of Korea, spoke on the progress of the Methodist missions in Korea, which
were started in 1885, the first Protestant conference being held there in 1887.
Dr. E.F. Frease, an Ohio missionary in India, also delivered an interesting
address, his topic being "The Present Missionary Situation."
The afternoon session on Saturday was given over to a series of papers, among
which was one by Rev. G.A. Cahoon, and an open conference and question drawer,
and the evening session consisted of a missionary song service, an address on
the possibilities of the missionary movement if adequately reinforced, by Dr.
Frease, and a word picture of Korean life by Dr. Beck.
Taken in its entirety, the missionary rally was a complete success, and no
doubt the cause of foreign missions was greatly aided by the meeting, as the
program brought out most forcibly the need of the work and the things most
needed to facilitate the labors of the missionary workers.

bestow. Don't forget the date, and begin now to make plans to attend the

Fred Tilland, residing south of town, slipped on the ice at his home Monday

Daniel Crane, a brakeman on the Omaha, was killed at Windom last Saturday
evening. Crane was a member of T. Desmond's crew operating a time freight
between St. James and Sioux City, but at the time of meeting his death was
working on an extra, the change being made necessary by the disarrangement of
traffic owing to the snow blockades. The crew were switching in the yards and
Crane attempted to step from the top of a box car to the tender and slipped,
falling between the rails in such a manner that the wheels of the car passed
over his left leg, severing it at the hip, and cutting off his left arm between
the elbow and shoulder. His right shoulder was also broken by the fall. His
cries attracted the attention of a passerby who went to his aid. Crane asked the
stranger to call a physician as he had been injured, which was done. Meanwhile
the train crew arrived on the scene and the unfortunate man was placed on a
grain door and carried to the depot and afterward removed to the hospital where
he died about three hours later. He was conscious to the last and gave no
outward expression to the suffering he must have endured. He gave instructions
as to whom to notify regarding the accident and told the manner in which it
occurred. Crane had many friends in Worthington where he was well known,
especially in railroad circles. He was twenty-four years of age and had been

not anxious to repeat. He had just finished stropping a razor and had laid it

the blade of the razor in such a way as to severely cut the third and fourth
fingers of his right hand. While the wounds inflicted are neither especially
painful nor dangerous they are nevertheless inconvenient and it is a safe bet
that Matt will hereafter be sure of the utensil he is after before taking hold

narrow escapes from upsetting all arrived right side up, and the experiences
encountered only served to sharpen their appetites and better fitted them to

arrived, a trifle late, but in excellent condition. The club will meet on April
1st with Mrs. Veeder.

to the St. Peter institution, but later was brought home by her husband, but it
was again found necessary to place her in the hospital. At the station she
refused to board the train and it required all the strength of her husband to
place her upon the car. As the train was in motion at the time, the struggle
caused considerable excitement as it looked for a time as if the struggles of
the unfortunate woman would precipitate both she and her husband beneath the
wheels. The trainmen, realizing the situation stopped the train until she was
safely ensconced in a seat in the coach.
