Ross' Brain In Alcohol.

Sheriff Tom Gardner, of Bottineau county, spent Saturday in Minot. He was on his way to Ray to summon witnesses as court convened at Bottineau Monday. Mr. Gardner stated that after the hanging of Ross, the murderer, a physician examined his brain and preserved it in alcohol. The brain was found to be in perfect condition, but the top of it had grown tight to the skull bones. This may have in a measure been the cause of the young man's degeneracy. The brain showed signs of his being a great coward.
