Troubadours Sang At Cop's Window   

 

Special Dispatch to the World-Herald

Falls City, Nebraska, August 22.--Three strangers came to this city with a quart of hooch in their possession and then proceeded to look for a place where they might park their car and celebrate in festive style.  They apparently were unacquainted with local points of interest, for the place they chose for their carousal was the front door of the county jail.

Resenting the idea of becoming serenaded at 3 a.m.., Deputy Sheriff Norman Forney, whose living quarters are in the wing of the jail, rushed down to the street without even the formality of full garb and collared the trio.  The men gave their names as J. Chard, G. Umland and F. Allhand.

Charged with Boot-Legging   

Humboldt, Nebraska, December 24. – Ike Pollard, a well known character here abouts, has been arrested and taken before Police Judge Thompson on a charge of boot-legging, the complaint being made by Marshal Todd, who claims the prisoner furnished to a farmer named Strunk who was thrown from his wagon about a week ago by a runaway team.

The old gentleman was in advanced stage of intoxication and had it not been for a belated pedestrian who found him by the roadside, he probably would have been frozen to death. He was placed in the jail over night and in the morning paid a small fine for his conduct.

It is claimed that the officers now have ample evidence that the liquor was furnished by Pollard, hence the present complaint. The accused gave bonds for appearance later in the sum of $500.

Humboldt has had no saloons for two years, but there has been constant illegal traffic in intoxicating drinks and the authorities are making determined efforts to reach the guilty parties.
