(Range Bureau of the News Tribune)

TWO HARBORS, Minn., Nov. 11.---John Hill, a Finlander, aged 40, was struck by a Duluth & Iron Range passenger train near Waldo station this morning at about 10:30 o'clock. The injured man intended to board the train at Waldo station, and was late in getting to the station. When he saw the train approaching, he ran down the track, waving his arms to attract the attention of the engineer, running between the rails all the time. The engineer slowed the train down and blew the whistle but Hill did not get out of the way and was struck by the engine while the train was going at the rate of 15 miles an hour. He was picked up and put on a train and taken to the Budd hospital. He was unconscious for a considerable time, but it is thought that his injuries will not prove fatal.
