Bandit Steals Kids And Car

Wishek, N.D., Aug. 10—(AP)—A thief, who stole the automobile of Adam Weidenback, a farmer living west of here, Saturday night, stole more than he bargained for.

Two sons of Weidenbach were asleep in the tonneau and awoke to find themselves traveling with a stranger at the wheel of the automobile. He gave them a dollar and asked them to keep quiet, but eight miles from the village the machine ran out of gasoline and he borrowed the dollar back. Then he tucked the children under the blanket and left.

The stolen car with the children again asleep was found by searching parties at 2 o'clock Sunday morning.
