Before his marriage Michael Brady, of Crookston, an engineer of the Northern Pacific, insured his life, the beneficiary being his brother, also an engineer, whose home is in Brainerd. Brady was killed while on duty at Winnipeg Junction recently and it was found he had neglected to have his insurance which amounted to $2,000 transferred to his wife. Saturday the brother appeared in the probate court Crookston, and voluntarily turned over to her the whole amount. This act proves him to be a true brother and a noble man.
