R.Peterson and T. Dahlgren ware the
two picnickers to fall Into tha handa of

curred to mar tha festivities until
o'clock, when Kay and Klenlln put in
an appearance and carted Messrs Peter
son and Dahlgren off to Jail for vio
lating the etate law prohibiting the giv
ing away of Intoxicants on the Sabbath.
The arrest created intense excitement
among the 100 Danes In attendance at

growing in intensity. Tbe two men tak
ea into custody were released on deposit

be heard by Judge Cameron tomorrow
