Honeymoon In Jail


Sheriff Benson Has Seven Male Inmates of County Jail at Work on the Big Woodpiles.

Life in the Grand Forks county jail is not so unpleasant if you like to saw wood. Sheriff J. Z. Benson had his seven male prisoners busy all day today making inroads on the big piles of cordwood that fill the back yard of the courthouse. Included among the sawyers is the bridegroom of yesterday, W. J. Holcomb, who will spend a considerable portion of his honeymoon sawing wood if the weather is fine. At that the prisoners seemed to enjoy the exercise and worked with a will.
