The Minot officers have begun
their crusade against tin-horn
jramblers. pick-pockets, thugs
and thieves in general. Realiz
ing that there was to be a great
-rop harvested in the Northwest,
and being driven out of Fargo
iind other large cities, the tin
horns have flocked to Minot, and
hold-ups are an almost nightly
occurrence. With them nave
come a gang of lewd women, so
base that they will not stop at
any crime. In order to get rid
of these women, the officers real
ize that they must first get the
thugs out of the way.
Elmer Falkenberg, a worthless
fellow, was arrested charged with
living from the earnings of lewd
women, with vagrancy, with in
habiting gambling dens, and
with causing the ruin of young
girls. He was fined and ordered
to leave the city. Judge Murray
gave the young man a stirring
lecture and Falkenberg promised
to lead a different life. But he
won't. If he comes back to
Minot he will be jailed.
Irvin Gow, Falkenberjr's run
ningmate, was also arrested and
fined |5. He is charged with
about the same things as Falk.
Ed Gorman, a tin-horn, was
arrested and fined $15 and
costs. He was run out of town.

ATTEMPTED A CRIMINAL"
If the short thick set feilow
who coaxed the little four year
old Chambers girl into an out
house in this city Tuesday after
noon and attempted a criminal
assault on her, could be found,
we doubt not that there would be
a neck tie party.
Tuesday afternoon the shoe
makers of Melander's shop saw
such a fellow enter a lavatory at
the rear of the little girl's home
and motion for her to enter the
building also. After much per

offering to give her a dollar, she
entered and was handled very
roughly. She was frightened

Meeting Cobras In 'ndla Net Alto
gether a Pleasant Pastime.
Tales of tiger shooting in India are
oommon enough, but one does not hear
much about king cobra hunting. A.
Mervyn Smith tells how, accompanied
by two natives, he went to a spot
wliere a pair of king cobras were
known to be. On arrival at the place
he was made to get under a basket,
the meshes of which were too small
tor a king cobra to put its head
through. While he was beneath this
basket one of the suakes came out
and was shot with arrovva by natives.
The other cobra then appeared and
endeavored to overturn the coop. De
scribing the incident, the -writer says:
"The terror of that moment 1 cannot
express. What if it should overturn
the basket! The strength of 13 feet
of muscle must be enormuus. and If
used in the right direction would soon
overcome my pull at the cord. What
would then happen? Certain death for
me, I felt sure. .Araln the whiz of an
arrow and I saw the gaping wound
along the reck of the fierce brute as
it quitted its hold to look i'rr this new

The apartment houses on Thlr

some time the presence of the ants

them became more strenuous and less
