Wednesday afternoon of last

Walker drew up to Berthold, and
he stepped off to learn what he
could of the missing stuff. Every
citizen soon forgot all' he knew
abont the matter and superin­
tendent was about to leav? in
despair. The people of Berthold
had not been talking of anything
but the affair for weeks, so when
Prof. Myer, the school teacher,
teacher, came home from his
day's work, he entered the hotel
and not knowing who Walker
was, remarked: "Weil, I got rid
of those pogket '»ooks. I sold one
for a dollar and sent one to my
brother,'' Walker spoke up and
said, "What pocket books?'* 'ibe
teacher is reported to have re­
plied, "Why, the «nes, taken from
the burning car." Walkerasked,
'/Did a car burn here?" The
professor, ever ready to impart
knowledge, then told of the whole
affair and implicated everyone
in the deal, The assistant super*
intendent left town soon after­
wards, for he had learned all the
information he was alter. He
will return again, however, and
until that time people in Berthold
talk in wispers.'

order.
If there be one time in the year more
than any other when the churches
should be crowded with worshipers, that
day should be Easter Sunday. Come
and crowd our churches.
Let the children remember theit
Easter thank offering. Every child will
bring an offering and the offerings will

Berthold is in*an uproar just
at present a'ftd nearlv all of the
"best'' people of that thriving
little city {ire said to be ruined in
a sensational affair.
Some-linje ago a refrigerator
car containing liquors andrqbber
goods was burned at Berthold
but the "energetic, thrifty people
of that yiUage didn't want to see
everything in the car burn up,
so rescued several'barrel* of wet
goods, jjogketbooks, etp, from
the burning car, It is estimate4
that not less than $300 vorth qf
stuff was taken from the car to
the various homes, It was not
an uncommon sight to see some
fell®w walking off with a box full
of rubber nipples, Another to
keep apace with his neighbor dis-r
appeared with his arms full of
pocket books, Several barrels
were rolled from the car and it
was surprising to se« how manv
buckets could be collected in so
short a time. Everyone had
something to wet up their wistle

"A Wise Woman"
The attraction which is to ap­
pear at the opera house Friday
evening is one of the best on the
road tins season and should draw
an immense audience. Miss
Marie Lamour, the star of the
company, had a world of exper­
ience as a member of Augustin
Daly's company in New York for
a number-of years, and her suc­
cess therefore at the head of her
own company, when one pauses
to consider the exceptional ad­
vantages she has enjoyed, is not
to be wondered at. The support­
ing company includes some well
known names.
Man Robbed on Train,
Chief of PoliceKimball received
a telegram from the chief of
police of Crookston, Minn., say
ins* a man named Stenerson from
Great Falls, Mont., was at that
place and he had been robbed
while en route from Chicago to
hif* home in Montana. He has
lost his pocket book containing
$85 in currency and a draft for a
large amount, He didn't know
who had done the deed, but said
he had been riding on the train
with a man from Minot who gave
his name as George Oilbert* Mr.
Kimball is looking for Gilbert,
who, if found, will be asked to
explain.
Pinkerton Detective Here.
A Pinkerton detective from Chi­
cago spent Saturday in Minot.
He had been to Portal where he
arrested a' party who was wanted
in Chicago as a witness on a mur­
der case, he having see* the deed
commited. The fellow then skipp­
ed to North Dakota, many believ­
ing he had been paid a large sum
to go away. The detective de­
parted on the Great Northern
with his man. The detective in
company with Chief Kim­
ball- visited the county jail, the
former making a close examina­
tion of all the prisoners in hopes
he would find some old hardened
criminal, wanted on serious
charges. He found no old ac­
quaintances, however.

MOSES MAKES ANNA WISE.
A flood Joke Tqjd on Two {Surrey People
By Oar County Conjmis^«ner, A. V.
Swaasoa.
A. V. Swanson was in Minot
recently and told us a good one
He said he didn't know if it was
on himself or the other fellow.
His h«ns had bepn bothering
him all winter eating eggs. lie
tried numerous ways to break
them of the habit. He bought
eggs at 30c per dozen and boiled
them four miput.es and p)a "d
them in the coops hot, made
nests with slats so that the eggs
wou]d fall through*ip a be­
low cut the off square on
some of the hens, and cut.the
bills off behind the ears on others
but still he got no eg'gs, until a
fat, rosv-eheeUed, sleek-haired
fellow by the name of Moset
Wise, who had ueen staying with
him during the winter, saw fit to
move onto his claim, when lo and
behold, he got six eggs the first
day, several each day afterwards
and as high as a dozen per day.
Now, he says, he dodn't care to
make a disturbance about it, but
somehow Moses' best girl (Anna)
heard of it and proceeded to cor­
rect him. Moses, of course, de­
nied the charge,
so
they called a
meeting of thgjr relatives on
the 39n(' day of March to set­
tle it, The oi|tgome was Moses
got clear and made Anna—Wise,
and thus were at the end of flH
their troubles. Ah- yes! but at
which end of the troubles?
Th«Independent bejieyes there
must be something in this, for
we recently nqted that A°los
Wise and Miss Anna Blocker, of
Surrgv, were married,
