Tintype Girl

H.J. Cole of Ludden, Dickey county, is the latest addition to Warden Haggart's boarders. Cole became too intimate with a girl by the name of Annie Sydel, who has always borne a good character, but who under promise of marriage from Cole departed from virtue and became an outcast from society. She is now the mother of a little innocent girl, while Cole serves a term of nine months in the penitentiary. Cole made an offer of marriage after trial had commenced, which was refused, and Judge Lander held against the pleadings of Attorney Glass, of Minneapolis, that the offer lessened the crime.
