Pen Suicide

A Kleptomaniac.

Fargo, Dak. Sept. 30—In the district court to-day, Napoleon Gayne was tried and found guilty of entering the room of Mrs. Barber at Casselton, and stealing watches and jewelry valued at from $200 to $300. He is the son of wealthy parents near Montreal, but seems to be a victim of kleptomania. Three years ago he was convicted of a similar charge, and on the way to Detroit, Mich., attempted a theft on the train. He played the insane dodge in prison and his father secured his release; he came back here and will be likely to serve out his sentence this time.
