Crossing The Missouri

Has To Be Genuine.

One of the well known farmers of Burleigh County called at the county auditor's office Thursday afternoon with a hide for which he wished to receive the regular state wolf bounty. County Auditor Healy recognized it as a red fox skin, however. The farmer was much surprised as he had been sincere in believing it to be a wolf, and there was a good laugh at his error. There have been an unusual number of bounties paid during the past few months but they have all been genuine wolves.
