A Serioun Charge Brought, of Which Noth
Vesterdav afternoon Capt. Kramer
and Ollieer Etzel brought Mrs. Nettie
Behel and her two little son, John
and Henry Behel, living at 1303
Thirtv-eighth street, before Magis
trate Schroeder on complaint of
Charles Holstrom. Mrs. Behel was
arrested on a warrant charging her
with no less a crime than attempted
murder, and the two boys were ac
cused of assault and battery. The
!",ry goes that on Saturday after
noon Holstrom was near the Behel
residence on Thirty-eighth street,
when one of the hoys. John, aged 7.
threatened to set his dog on him.
Holstrom. who, by the way. is -23
years old, took offense at the boy's
remarks, ami assaulted him. when
Henry, the older boy. Hi years old.
attempted to assist his little brother,
whereupon Holstrom assaulted him
with a piece of cord-wood, and John
ran into the house and told his
mother that Holstrom was beating
Henry. Mrs. Behel ran out to assist
her son picking up the first thing
she saw, which happened to be a re
volver loaded with blank cartridges.
Shot a ltlmik Cartridge.
As she appeared on the scene Hol
strom was about to hit the boy again
and she shot one of the cartridges to
scare him. but it didn't work Hol
strom didn't scare so she lired two
more of the harmless caps and it
seems that this succeeded, for Hol
strom at once desisted and forthwith
swore out the papers described
above. When the "squire and state's
attorney heard the evidence they
dismissed the case.

by the r.eheis against Holstrom on

The United States Express compa
ny has just put guards in the express
that run through this city. It is
hot known that the company has as
surances that attempts are to be
made to rob any of these trains, so it
is to be presumed that it is making

One man to a car is the rule. This
one man is supposed to be gootl on

of the nerve to make him a bad man

He has a sawed-off Winchester shot
gun. - Its magazine is charged with
seven big cartridges loaded with
buckshot, and it is a wicked thing to
go against. It is asserted by some
people that these guards will do
greater execution if they are placed
in some of the cars of the train, but
the company is going to try them in
the express cars for a time.
