Ellendale, N.D., Nov. 21—E. C. Day, 20, of Barton, Mo. must spend a year and a half in North Dakota, under parole, because he raised an $8 check to an $80 check, and passed it on the First National bank of this city.
The check had been paid to Day by a local farmer as wages.
Pleading guilty, on being returned to the state from Barron, Day was given a suspended sentence through the plea of Thomas Marshall, president of the bank.
