Out Dog Thieves.
William 8. Boggess, whose home

emphatic protest against a practice

Boisterous applause of the spar

women, Mabel White and Marie La

battle on Twenty-first street at an
early hour this morning, resulted in
the arrest of a quintet of rollickers

The two principals in the female go
were each fined $5 and costs and
the male audience comprised of
William Stevens, Ben Hein and

The arrested people were menu

women were settling a grudge was
not learned. But the fact that they
bad a real battle was shown by their
disheveled appearance. The officers
were attracted to the unroped arena
by the shrieks of the women and the
