HELD UP IN CHICAGO
Chicago, Ill., Dec. 11.-[Special.]-Charles Browlett, a wealthy farmer from Zimmerman, Minn., was held up and robbed on Fifth avenue, near Harrison street, early last night by three men. One robber knocked Browlett to the pavement with a "billy." And the two others quickly searched him, taking $16 from one of his pockets. A roll of bills containing $110, concealed in the victim's clothing, was not found.

Browlett and Jones Blomberg of Glenwood, Wis., were walking to the Grand Central depot together. The assault and robbery were seen by many persons on their way to the station, who were so astonished at the boldness of the deed that they allowed the bandits to escape. William Swartz, who was seen running from the scene, was arrested by Detectives Money and Niland after a chase and short struggle near the scene of the robbery. The prisoner was identified by Browlett.

LOSES HIS LEG; ASKS $30,000.
William Parker Wants Heavy Damages From Swan River Logging Company.

William Parker asks the United States circuit court to give him judgment for $30,000 against the Swan River Logging company for injuries received while employed by them in the woods near Santiago, Minn. Parker alleges that he was ordered by the foreman, and superintendent of the work, to act in the capacity of a railroad man, in spite of the fact that he had no previous experience.

He also alleges that the train was not properly equipped, the cars were connected by the old "Lincoln coupling pins" and the engine was one which was not made for such work. He also claims that while he was at work coupling the cars, the train lurched, throwing him under the wheels.

He says that his right leg was crushed so that amputation was necessary and the left leg also badly mangled.
