Dutch Alfred

J. A. Wilbur, a young man from Two Harbors, Mich., who was arrested at Kenmare, charged with selling whiskey of his own manufacture, was dismissed in county court last week. The yroduct {sp} that Wilbur sold was not whiskey at all, but water colored to look like whiskey and sweetened with brown sugar. Wilbur had fixed up two dozen such bottles, hoping to raise a little money for transportation home, so that he might arrive in time to eat Xmas turkey. Wilbur upon his release from jail, wired home for money and will stick his brogans under the festive board on that gladsome day. He had been working with a threshing crew and isn't a bad sort of fellow.
