BOY RUNNING AWAY, CLAIMS HE HAS BEEN MISTREATED
Velva, N.D., Dec. 19.—Tales of brutality alleged to have been practiced against him by a guardian, related when he was arrested in this city supposedly attempting to run away to his home in Iowa, where he claims his parents reside, have turned the attention of juvenile authorities of northwestern North Dakota to Almond B Lockwood, aged 12. Thomas W. Streeter, aged 13, was with him, claiming he had gone only to keep the lad company.
Young Lockwood's story, if it is true, will result in interesting developments. Col. Alex Scarlet of Minot, juvenile officer for the district, has been placed in charge of the case and is making a thorough investigation.
