Schickling has been boarding at 27 Thompson Avenue for the past two months, and has been in St. Paul for about a year. About 7 p.m. this evening he went into the confectionery store on South Robert Street near Isabel Street. He bought a few small articles and handed Mrs. Spencer the raised bill. She saw that it was counterfeit and notified the police. Detective Rowlin was sent after Schickling, but upon seeing the detective he ran and gave his pursuer a short chase before he was captured. During his flight he dropped a false mustache, which he was wearing to disguise himself.
