Lakota, Sept. 3.—Chris Levents, 35 year old harvest hand from Fairbault, Minn., is expected to die from a gunshot wound in his back received while he resisted two hold up men in a box car in the Great Northern yards in this city last night. Levents and his pal, Leonard Bokman of Fairbault, were sleeping in the box car when the two hold up men entered and started to go through their pockets. Levents showed fight and one of the men shot him through the back, the hold up men then beating a hasty retreat. They have not yet been apprehended. Levents was taken to a hospital at Devils Lake.
