Arms Akimbo


Summit, N. D., Oct 16.—Some one attempted to break into the jail here the other night, the padlock being found shattered to pieces in the morning. Some local wits are of the opinion that the burglars who have been perating {sp?} about the town for the past few days felt guilty and would have arrested themselves if the jail had not been locked up so tight.

The Brusteun general store was entered the night prior, but nothing of value was taken. The middle of the week Watkins & Olson's saloon was entered on two successive nights and quantities of liquors taken each night. Some of the goods were later recovered.
