Bennie Carroll, 12 years, today is in a hospital at Hettinger
suffering from a wound caused by a bullet that penetrated his abdomen and punctured his intestines. The bullet that lodged in the boy's body first passed through the body of a dog, instantly killing that animal. Leonard Carroll, an older brother, had taken a rifle into the yard to shoot a dog. He shot the dog just as Bennie came out of the house. The bullet after passing through the body of the dog struck a stone, and being deflected about thirty degrees from its course, hit the boy in the abdomen.

Sheriff Lee Held Up.
A Minot telegram says that Sheriff Lee was held up near Burlington on Tuesday, and the would-be hold-up is now in the county jail, under $500 bonds. The sheriff, with Captain William White, was speeding in an automobile when a man with a gun got in the middle of the road and cried to the sheriff to stop. "Stop that machine or I'll blow your brains out," said the man. Le stopped the machine, turned around and went to Burlington. There he procured a team and a gun and hastened back. The man gave himself up without resistance and explained his actions by stating that he was prejudiced against automobiles. He gave his name as Hamilton.

Hugh, the six-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Jake Gard, came within an ace of
losing his life on Monday afternoon when he and another kid, thinking to have a little fun and not realizing their danger, lighted several matches and dropped them down the mount of a large gasoline tank brought to town a short time before by Jack Emerson and left at the rear of T. O. Hunter's store to be refilled. Luckily there was no gasoline in the tank, but the gas that had accumulated in the tank at once caused an explosion when brought in contact with the lighted match, throwing young Gard from the wagon to the ground, on which he struck on his face in such a manner as to burst a blood vessel high up on his cheek, but not injuring him at all permanently. His face bled freely and from his shrieks heard for several blocks around many were led to the belief that he had received serious injury. He was taken into the Krueger drug store, where the flow of blood was soon stopped and the kid was sent home somewhat wiser than before he monkeyed with the gasoline tank. The sound of the explosion was heard all over town and resulted in tearing the bottom out of the tank.
