Wm Parsley, the head of a family consisting of a large number of small children, was arrested by order of Capt. Scarlett, president of the Minot Humane society
, charged with the neglect of his wife and children. Parsley is a bad pill and has spent what little money he did earn for intoxicating liquor. The Judge before whom he was taken gave him thirty days in which to mend his ways, and it is hoped that the man will prove of some use.
