Mrs. Cleo Firste (white) of Minot was stabbed in the right arm, while defending herself against attacks by Mrs. Clyde Bracken, (colored). Jealousy on the part of the colored woman, because of alleged attentions showered by her dusky husband on the white woman, caused the fighting. Mrs. Firse was knocked unconscious twice in two fistic encounters that preceded the knife affair. A revolved was also brought into play, one shot being fired, but going wild.
