Wolf Chase


Ran Away From the Crittenden Home.

About a month ago a young girl about sixteen years of age, Mary Amundson by name, was sent from Mandan to the Crittenden {sp} home in Bismarck, supposedly in a delicate condition. It now transpires, according to the doctors, she is not in any such shape.

One morning last week she ran away from the home and went to the house of Sheriff McGillis. The matron of the home was communicated with. She came to the sheriff's home and tried to induce the girl to return with her. This she would not do but persisted in staying where she was.

She was taken to Mandan and turned over to the authorities at that place.

It is thought that the girl is not bright. She had been living with an aunt about thirty-five miles south of Mandan. Her father lives with her step-mother in Connecticut, and about a year ago the girl came to North Dakota to live.
