Peter Haagenson Lost His Life By Drowning.
Mr. and Mrs. Peter Haagenson of the town of Dovre are heavily burdened with sorrow for the loss of their twenty year old son, Peter Haagenson Jr. who met death by drowning last Thursday evening while in bathing at Superior . He had gone into deep water and likely was taken by the current. Several companion were near, but they were unable to help him. The lifeless body was found only twenty minutes after sinking, in thirty feet of water. All efforts to revive him were unavailing. Peter was employed at the ship yards in Superior where he had gone about a year ago.
The young man was born July 25, 1899 and met death as above related on July 10, 1919 . The most of his life was spent in the town of Dovre . He was a fine boy and was well liked by everyone who knew him, To his parents he was always kind and helpful and to his friends and associates courteous at all times.
He leaves to mourn his loss his sorrowing father and mother, seven brothers and two sisters,--Andrew and Ole of Superior, Haagen, Curtiss, Bendick and Alfred Bendickson of Dovre, George Bendickson of Chicago,Lena of New Auburn and Anna, also of Dovre, all of whom were present at the funeral except George who could not reach here.
Funeral services were held Sunday afternoon in the Lutheran church in Dovre in charge of Rev. H. Lund, The church was filled and many were unable to get inside.

A. of which Peter was a member attended the funeral in a body, and six of his comrades acted as pallbearers.
Thus another young life is snuffed out without warning. It is a severe trial for his parents, brothers and sisters. He had a host of friends from whose circle he will be greatly missed. The Sympathy of all is extended to those who mourn.
