BOYS STEALING RIDES ON FARGO STREET CARS
Fargo, N.D., March 1—The Fargo street car company has another problem added to its already long list. According to conductors, dogs have contracted the habit of stealing rides.
One conductor turned in a report recently that he ejected three of them from his car simultaneously. The conductor found the animals in a crowded car behind the feet of several passengers. Not one passenger admitted ownership.
"Then off they go," said the conductor, believing that if any owners were aboard, they would repent.
"Let 'em go," came a reply, in chorus.

I don't understand the use of "boys" in the title; I believe it is a typo on the part of a sleep-deprived and underpaid Linotype operator.
