One Armed Man was Robbed.
A one armed man was found dead drunk in the woods back of the Kimball home Sunday afternoon and was picked up by our chief of police and taken to the city jail where he sobered up. When he came to his senses he told a pitiful tale and cried like a baby. He said he had been working in the northern part of the county all summer as a farm hand and came to Minot Saturday. He got into a bad crowd and they got him drunk. When he woke up he was minus sixty-eight dollars and his pocket knife. The man took the officer to the woods to find where he had been robbed, but his mind was in such a dazed condition that he could not tell where he had been.
