A Bad Case.
Jamestown is now agog over a operation in which Helen Barden, formerly of this city, and one Andrew Johnson are the prime factors, and Dr. DePuy of Jamestown the one who occupies the most dangerous position. It appears that the girl, who is 22 years of age, became pregnant through intimacy with Johnson, and left Bismarck in search of a doctor who would perform an abortion. Dr. DePuy did the work for $50, and now he is in court and will undoubtedly be convicted. The trial is in progress, and the Jamestown Alert contains the evidence in full. It is a most unfortunate mistake of Dr. DePuy as well as the girl and her unfriendly friend.
