Like "the annals of the poor," the list of serious crimes in Renville county is brief. Whether this happy state of affairs be due to the inherent lawabiding character of its people, or to the well-known vigilance of its police officers, or, what is more likely, to the feeling of contentment among its people, "their wants but few, their wishes all confined" - the fact remains that crime is perhaps the only crop that does not grow abundantly on this fertile prairie. The following cases are related to show that there is some foul seed, however, among the grain and that the weeding-out process is not yet complete.
