Taken To The Pen.

Yesterday afternoon Deputy Sheriff Redmon and lady attendant arrived from Fargo with Mrs. Forester, who was recently sentenced to the pen for four and one-half years for shot lifting by Judge Pollock.

Mrs. Forrester will have but one other of her sex in the penitentiary to prevent her from being the only representative of her sex there.

It was feared that there would be a good deal of shoplifting in Fargo during the holidays but from reports it seems that the severe sentence that Mrs. Forester received a sort of fear her been inoculated into those whom the authorities and merchants feared.
