NORTH DAKOTA NEWS ITEM8 OF A WEEK FROM VARIOU8 PARTS OF THE 8TATE. All the Funds of the 8tate Bank of Hensel Stolen by Cracksmen and Many Checks Are Destroyed. The entire funds of the State Bank of Hensel, Pembina county, were Stolen early Saturday morning by cracksmen. More than $3,500 was se cured, and checks and notes valued at a much larger amount were torn and scattered by the explosion. The robbers took nothing but cash, $150 in silver and the remainder in currency. The bank is capitalized at $10,000. F. A. Halliday is president and J. O. Mills cashier. The only clues found seem to indi cate that the burglars are the same that robbed the Clifford bank last fall. A revolver and several shotgun shells found in the bank are of Canadian manufacture, and the soap used to hold the nitroglycerin is like that used at Clifford. Hensel, like all North Dakota towns, is crowded with strangers, most of them threshers, and that fact makes it most difficult to trace the robbers. If the large number of men engaged in the hunt are successful in their search it is probable that the crimi nals will be given the alternative of surrendering or of being shot'down. Schools Are Rich. "It will be Interesting to all en gaged in educational work in the state," State Superintendent W. L. Stockwell says, "to know of the rapid increase in the apportionment of the state tuition fund. The total amount per capita for the year 1904 was $2.57, and the total amount apportioned ag gregated $296,639.46. The amount ap portioned per capita for the year 1905 for the three quarters is $2.86, the to tal amount apportioned being $346, 940.74. This amount exceeds the to tal amount of last year by a little over $50,000, and it may be confidently ex pected that the fourth quarter will be in the neighborhood of $50,000, an increase of $100,000 in the apportion ment for the year." North Dakota Team Defeated. "Under a sweltering sun that threat ened the players with prostration from the heat, Minnesota Saturday won her first varsity game of the year at Min neapolis by defeating North Dakota university in a game of two twenty minute halves by a score of 45 to 0. Minnesota made thirty-four points in the first half and threatened to run a big score, but slowed down in the sec ond period and was forced to be con tent with two touchdowns and eleven points. North Dakota played a plucky defensive game throughout, and fought to the last, but could gain almost no ground at all, and never had a chance to score. Two Men Cremated.
