Bandit Lets Victim Keep "Two-Bit Piece"
Beach, N. D., Dec. 19.—Frank Sticka, harnessmaker, needed a 25-cent piece more than a bandit who held him up here. The "two-bit piece ain't no good to me, keep it," the bandit said after rifling the clothes of his victim. He is believed to have been a convict who escaped from the state penitentiary at Bismarck recently.
