Broken Loose

Youthful Robbers.

Grand Forks—After robbing his father's safe of $260, Samuel Garber, the twelve-year-old son of Moses Garber, a grocer of 602 Walnut street, divided the plunder with Herman Langord, aged 14 years, son of Hocken Langord, 1101 Belmont, and they made preparations to depart for the Montana plains, where they expected to reside.

Before departing they made purchases amounting to $22. Two pearl-handled revolvers at $8 each, two boxes of cartridges, two pistol holders, clothing and eatables were included in the list of goods acquired.

On foor they started for Grand Forks Junction, two miles west, shooting the revolvers as they traveled along, and were captured there by Officer Doty and Moses Garber, father of one of the accused. When young Garber saw the officer he started to run and threw his revolver away. He was captured after a brief chase. Langord stood his ground.

A revolver and a pocketbook the boys had thrown away were recovered and the youths returned to the city jail.
