Would-Be-Hold-Up Finds He Tackled Wrong Lot of Boys
Bowman, N.D., June 9.—When Carl Holmburg appeared in the door of Dave Fronsen's ranch house and covered the owner and his crew, who were at the supper table, he aroused a pack of all around athletes, who overpowered him and considerably mussed him up before he had time to pull a trigger. After Holmberg regained consciousness he was taken to Rhame and delivered over to Sheriff Norem. Under the circumstances it is believed Holmburg is slightly demented. No sane man would undertake to hold up Fronsen's gang with anything less formidable than a Big Bertha.
