Horrible Act of Two North Dakota Men Ascribed to Liquor Fight. Citizens passing by Aneta Park in the middle of Aneta, N. D., the other night stared transfixed at a flaming figure running through the streets, trailed by sheets of lire, out of which issued the horrify ing shrieks of a burning boy. Ken neth, the 12-year-old son of Simon Mo Kenzle, a butcher, leader of the re form association there, while deliver ing meat tor his father, bad been met In the park by two men who hurled him to the ground, poured oil from his own lantern over him, and ignited It. Passersby bore htm to the ground and quenched the fire. The child bad been probably fatally burned and was rush ed to the St. John's hospital at Fargo. On account of the prominence of Si mon McKenzle in the fight being waged against the Illegal liquor element, the deed is ascribed to the hatred and threats of that class against him.
