The city courtroom presented an old-time scene this morning, suggestive of the good old harvest days, when all kinds, colors and conditions of trans gressors confronted the court at the opening of the morning sessions. There was a noticeable absence of the typical hobo, and in his stead were well dressed and prosperous appearing drunks, who had come to the city to purchase winter clothing and inciden tally take on a post-harvest jag. One young woman, dressed in the height of fashion, added a little tone to the scene, while the color effect was hand somely worked out by an ebony color ed negro seated among the prisoners in the dock. The dock appeared as a prospectus, promising well for court prosperity, and the judge smiled as he looked over the tickets and discovered that all were in financial shape to pay fines and get out of their trouble. "May Adams," announced the court. A handsome young woman of about twenty-five summers, dressed after the latest modes, arose in the dock in re sponse to this name. Her pretty face showed no trace of fear, but when she spoke much of the beauty evaporated, as a harsh voice answered the ques tions propounded by the court, and her slang was intense. "You are charged with .vagrancy, young lady," said the court. How do you wish to plead?" "I don't know what It is lto' N*Vt •mfcer'a Mwi, fok «lkj» be a vag they haven't given me a chance to see a lawyer. I have a place to sleep and have been eating three meals a day. My manner of living has been as honorable as it possibly could be." The court re'ad the vagrancy law.

"I'll tell you how that happened. I have a gentleman friend who lives in the same block with me. He worked a late trick last night, and when he came in he said he was hungry and in vited me out to supper. Of course I wouldn't refuse and when I came out of th^ restaurant the officer nabbed me." "Yes, yes I see," said the court. "But how do you wish to plead?" "Well, I expect guilty. I don't want my people to hear of this that's a cinch." "It is the intention of the officers of this citv to keep your kind out of the blocks," said the court, "and we're go ing to do it. I will sentence you to pay $10 or to serve eight days in the city jail, and if you ever come before me on a similar charge, I will n\ike you do some tall digging to pay a fine."

"Have you been working ever since you were last before me?" asked the court. "I shure has, boss. You ax any of these 'ere policemen, They knows that I ain't been 'round the city.' "How long have you Jaeen back this time?" "About two weeks." "How much money did fy9U have when you came to town?" "Ten dollars, boss."

"Oh, yes, you're a hanger-on. I un derstand your case and the source of your seeming prosperity. I will fine you $10 or you can go down for eight days." The negro allowed $10 to be taket from his pile, and if he's in the city tonight he'll be in court again tomor row morning.

ArtlstlcaBy the Recital by Charlotte Den nth William* Was a Pronounce* Success.. TTie Artist's Recital by Charlotte De rnuth Williams, violiste, at the opera house Monday evening, proved to be be one of the most delightful musical entertainments ever provided for a Fargo audience. It is difficult to speak of her playing without becoming extrav agant, its greatest charm being the purity and breadth ol her tone».itt whicb she certainly excelled anyone who ever appeared here before. The. programme was most admirably selected containing eight selections, none of which had ever before been given .here, and afforded ample opportunity to display her absolute mastery of the instrument. Her breadth of style and superb coloring, combined with her technique and perfect bowing, and the beauty of her tone, gave her in terpretations an individuality which marks the great artiste. She plays with great warmth and feeling, which was best displayed in the Andante movement from the Mendelssohn Concerto and the two D'Ambrosia numbers, the "Canzon netta" and "Serenade," were played with a delicacy which was simply captivating. Mrs. Shattuck's accompaniments were as usual, in thorough accord with the solo ist, and she sared the honors with her. If the Musical Club can continue to provide such delightful entertainments it is an organization which Fargo will have reason to be proud of, and every way support and encourage.

Jury Seid That Both Hirabend and Wile Had Been Qoittjr of Cruel Treatment. The divorce case of Hodges vs. Hodges, on trial in the district court during the past eight days, reached the jury last night at 5 o'clock, and a verdict, virtually in favor of the defend ant, was returned. The jury found that both parties to the action were guilty of cruel and inhuman treatment, one to the other, in about the same de gree, and returned a verdict according ly. This is equivalent to a finding for the defendant, and the case will now probably be carried to the supreme court. The case of the state vs. George Coughlin was. called this morning and reached the jury about 3 o'clock this afternoon. Coughlin is charged with littering a forgery. A few weeks ago he entered J. B. Coyle's store in Leon ard and purchased a pair of 65-cent gloves. He tendered in payment a $10 bill of. the Bank of New Brunswick kind, and he was at once placed under arrest. 7 'Fhe case of tlie state vs." E^waTd gPollock, who is charged with Jelling mfcoxicating Uquprs, follo^edw .the •Coughlin case. 5. 7 "STICK" SAYS HE KNOW# tFessenden News: It is with rfegret that we note thaf Co.
