Pioneer resident dragged to death under wagon
An accident, fatal in its results, unusual in the manner of its happening, and horrifying in its details, occurred last Sunday evening on the lonely road eight miles north of this city. Robert Peterson, a farmer living four miles north of Seventh Avenue, was thrown from his wagon at the bridge crossing Silver Creek eight miles north of here. His feet and clothing became entangled in the whiffletrees and he was dragged from that point to his home, a distance of over four miles. Mr. Peterson has been a resident of Lake County for about twenty years. He is survived by his widow and four children.

Trophy won by THHS band
The Two Harbors High School Marching Band, competing against 14 other high school bands on the campus of Mankato State College last Saturday, won the first prize in its division and second overall prize. The competition Saturday was judged by directors of three college bands. All the band members competing were guests at the Mankato State College football game and the winning over-all band played between the halves.
I wish to announce that on Nov. 1, 1964, Vern’s Texaco Service Station at 401 Seventh Ave., Two Harbors, Minn., will be operated by Howard Udenberg and Ray Turcotte. I will continue to operate the bulk gasoline and fuel oil business from the service station as before. All of my customers’ accounts will be payable there. I thank all customers for their patronage in the past and hope you will continue to patronize Howard and Ray at the same location.
Search for Donald Kulas to resume
Saturday, Oct. 19, another search will be conducted for Donald “Blackie” Kulas. Around 9:30 a.m. friends and relatives will meet approximately one and a half blocks past the Reserve Mining tracks where they cross State Rd. No. 2. It is hoped that with the loss of leaf cover, the search will prove more successful. May 11, Mr. Kulas was on his way home from Two Harbors after attending an evening function. He apparently missed his turn at the Toimi Rd., passed the tracks and crossed over the center line of the highway, bringing his vehicle to rest against the heavy brush. He left the vehicle and has not been seen since. Any information should be passed on to the Lake County Sheriff’s Department.
