NEARLY BURNED TO DEATH.
Williston, N. D., Oct. 16.—Alfred Frederickson was up before Judge H. V. Smith on a disorderly charge. Frederickson is a bachelor residing on East Broadway. It is alleged that while in a condition that made the normal use of his faculties difficult, he in some way set fire to the inside of his house. The police arrived in time to save him from a roasting and to drag out the bed and save the house. He was found guilty and fined $5 which he paid.
