Flickered Out


Mandan, N.D., July 28.—If B. W. McDonald had left booze alone, he might have gotten away with about $40 worth of tools which he took from the Connolly garage.

McDonald had been doing some work around the garage and soon after he left the kit of tools were missed. Sheriff McDonald and State's Attorney Langer were notified of the theft and were hot on his trail, having learned that he had gone to Bismarck. Arriving in Bismarck McDonald got in touch with a bootlegger who provided him a lot of cheap whiskey, and in this condition the tool thief hired a jitney to bring him to Mandan, and here is where he run afoul the toils of the law.

The prisoner was taken to the Morton county jail and will have his hearing soon.
