SPECIAL WRECKED WITH LITTLE DAMAGE
Derailment of special train, consisting of engine No. 103, combination car No. 6 and private cars, “Minnesota” and “Vermillion” occurred on mile 91 ½ at about 10 a.m. yesterday. The derailment was due to track laying gang relaying steel on a curve and the enginemen failed to get the signal from the flagman who was sent out by the track laying gang. Engineer N.S. Hillman narrowly escaped serious injury and got out of the affair with only a light scald on one of his legs. The locomotive was turned over clear of the main line and the combination car next to the engine was derailed. The two private cars were not derailed or damaged.

IF YOU FIND YOURSELF IN ALASKA…..
The sixth annual Two Harbors picnic in Alaska is expanding its welcome to travelers from throughout the entire Arrowhead region. The picnic is hosted by John and Dorothy Carlson at their place on Rainbow Lake near Wasilla. At previous picnics, the Carlsons have been surprised by the number of people with a Two Harbors connection. Dorothy writes: “News has gotten out that John has planted lutefisk in the lake (John says for bait you use lefse with butter) We are receiving calls from Scandinavians wondering if we are having charters.”
TIME OF THE OLD TOIMI TOODLE-OOO
As I sit at the kitchen table writing my last Toimi Tales, the old regulator clock on the wall clicks away and my time in my home at the top of the evergreen hill is quickly coming to an end. At one time this forty was alive with the ringing of children’s voices, barking dogs, crowing of roosters and the quacks and honks of ducks and geese. I feel sad at what I’m leaving and yet this forty will again hear the sounds of children, dogs and life as my home was purchased by a young couple with years of life ahead of them. As for me, I’m heading for Two Harbors, and an apartment where life will take me in a new direction.
