Bullets in the Air.
A bullet hole through the ..crown
of his hat and a badly disjointed
nerve are what Fred Parrot, pro
prietor of the Northern Pacific eat
ing house, got out of an exciting
experience with hold-ups last Thurs
Mr. Parrott had remained at his
place of business till' about mid
night to prepare lunch for the crew
of a late freight, and at 12:30 lit
and Agent Dunning left for theii
homes. Mr. Parrott had just step
ped oft" the depot platform to the
eating house end, and was walking
along a line of box cars when there
came a pistol flash,and a bullet plow
ed through his hat but a fraction of
an inch from his gray matter. Par
rott dropped the articles which he
was carrying, and pulling his re
volver from his pocket, showed that
it was in good working condition by
firing three shots. His friend be
hind the boxcar in the meantime
had fired one more shot, but the
only apparent damage done was to
Fred's head covering.
The shooting attracted the atten
tion of Agent Dunning, who was
just about to enter his home, and
he heard one man run from the vi
cinity of the affair, down the road
past the depot, while another cross
ed the long bridge by the Alton ho
tel. When the night-watchman
and the marshal arrived on the
scene, they made a thorough search
of the city, but unearthed no sus
Suspicion, however, points to two
young men who had been hanging
around town for a number of days,
and who stayed all of Wednesday
night in the depot waiting room.
They were seen in town Thursday
night, but disappeared immediately
I after the shooting affair, and it is
I thought that they had planned to
hold Parrott up for the change he
would carry home with him.
Why the shot should be fired be
fired before any warning should be
given is a m>stery, unless the hold
up was somewhat nervous, and in
getting a preliminary drop on his
man, accidentally pressed too hard
on the trigger.
Election was Close.
The responsibility of the individ
ual voter was given especial prom
inence in the city election Tuesday,
when a single ballot stood between
