Hotel keepers throughout the United States and Canada should beware of a man who registered at the Sheridan House March 8th, as he has a good supply of empty valises and duty shirts. He is about twenty hands high with a brown mustache. He registered as Lew Mudge, and is probably now in the Hills. He was formerly employed as clerk for E. Frank, of St. Paul.
