North Prairie, Buxton, was the scene of one of the largest funerals ever held in that community on Sunday, Augest 12th. Upwards if 800 people were then gathered to follow the remains of Jens Egge to his final resting place.

Mr. Egge died as the result of injuries receivedin on accident with his binder while harvesting on his own farm at North Prairie. He had just repaired the binder driven by his son which was directly ahead of his and upon starting of that binder the horses attached to his own became frightened and started up. Failing in an attempt to halt them he was caught by the sickle of the binder and wounded badly especially around the legs. He was rushed to the hospital in Mayville and given medical aid but in spute of all efforts to save his life, he died a half an hour later of shock and wounds received.
