to again take-a fall out of the office
of clerk of the district court. One
thing is certain that the sheriff has
been breaking in J. B. Tridle as
bailiff this term of court which
would indicate that perhaps Tim is

give the report for what it is worth.

Truely is he a dead lion, a blasted

none so poor as to do him reverence.

An Early Morninp Tire.
Monday morning at a trifle past
three o'clock' our citizens were
aroused by the shriekings and wail
ings of the fog-horn whistle at the
waterworks in concert with the
hoarse bellowing, of the U. P.
sliopi whistle, from their early
morning slumbers, and many of
them lazily turned over upon their
couches and muttered to themselves
that some one must again be
"monkeying" with the fire alarm
system. The more energetic, how
ever, arose and started upon a tour
of investigation. This procedure
developed the fact that the flames
were consuming a two-story frame
building upon east Front street be
longing to Dan Murphy. The de
partment quickly responded to the
call, and although many of its
members had left the city with the
local militia company, prompt and
efficient work soon subdued the

known. The loss is about $350,

SUPPOSED TRAIN' R03BESS CAUGHT.
Xate and Hans Znndsen Arrested
Brought to This City.
Information reached this city last
Saturday evening of the capture of
two men over near Mason City, in
Custer county, Neb., who are sup
posed to be the identical parties
who held up and robbed the Union
Pacific train near Brady Island last
Tuesday night. The capture was
effected by ex-deputy sheriff Wm.
Parsell, village marshal H. L.
Crossley, and Dr. Carlson. The
fellows liad been seen by several
Custer county citizens between
Callaway and Broken Bow on Sat
urday. On reaching the Black
Hills branch of the B. & M. R'y
they stole a ride on a freight train
from ,Ansley to Mason City, and
were ignorainiously "fired" by the
train crew. They only lingered
but a brief time in Mason City and
struck out walking eastward. Sus
picion was directed to them and
the above gentlemen started, in
pursuit with the result that they
came up with their quarry some
five miles east of Mason City.
At the time of their arrest the
twain were bathing in. a pond near
the roadside. Upon being com
manded to throw up their hands,
the smaller one who only had his
feet disrobed promptly complied
with the order; but the larger oner
who in the language of the sports
is a "dead tough looking mug,"
seemed-disposed not to surrender,
and started for his clothing to
secure his revolver. Fortunately
for him he realized that discretion
was the better part of valor, and
yielded ere the" officers decided to
perforate his carcass. Onv their
persons, were tound three revolvers,
a knife, 32 in monev, some miscel
laneous articles, and. two silk hand
kerchiefs with holes
whicjtfirtd indicate they had' been,

by reason of their not telling the
entire story in regard to heir
presence in this part of the country,
as they claim their home to be in
Dakota1 county, this state. They
give their names as Knudsen, and
are said to be Danes, and brothers.
K. Knudsen is five feetseven inches
in height, weighs 142 pounds,
gives his age at twenty-nine years,
and has his name tattooed on his
left forearm. Hans Knudsen is
six feet and one-fourth inch in
height, states his age as twenty
years, and weighs 168 pounds.
Each have dark complexions and
dark hair, closely cropped, and
rather low foreheads, indicating-
a low intellect, yet not necessarily
a lack of cunning.
The suspects were about eighteen
miles ahead of the following gentle
men who were gradually warming
up the trail and in a short time
would have been able to put the
blood-hounds upon the track,
although they had hitherto been of
no avail: Frank White, United
States marshal, W. H. Liddiard,
("Rattlesnake Pete"), chief deputy
U. S. marshal, T. J. Brewer, deputy
sheriff, of Rouse, Col., and U. P.
R'y detectives Canada, Keith,
Tobin and Vizzard. This party
found a new Winchester rifle which
had probably been dropped by the
desperadoes in their wild flight
across the country. The latter
were brought to this city upon a
special train Sunday evening, and
of course they attracted more atten
tion than the three-ring pop circus
of the day before, although from
their attempt they also apperred to
be free silver men. One persever
ing, perspiring individual was
stationed at an upper window of
the Pacific hotel armed with a
kodak, and anxiously awaiting an
opportunity to "press the button."
But the opportunity was not
afforded him to secure a "snap
sljot" as the cars were switched up
to the Locust street crossing and
the two fellows were escorted to
the county jail by a large throng of
The Knudsen brothers were ar
