The Saline Republican (Marshall, Mo) Jan. 13, 1899

ROBBED AGAIN

Last Saturday night, miscreants broke the large plate glass window in the store building of F.E. Arn on South Main street and secured goods to the value of $150, in the way of revolvers, razors and other articles. The glass alone is valued at $100.
Mr. Arn has suffered quite a number of times by robbery and it appears as though the thieves think Mr. Arn an easy mark, but will be badly mistaken if another attempt is made. During the past 10 years, Mr. Arn has suffered losses to the amount of $1,000 by robbery and misfortune in other ways and we for one would be rejoiced to see these thieves behind the bars of justice.
The officers are at work on the case and are doing everything in their power to locate the rascals.

AN ALLEGED CONFESSION

Fort Scott, Kas., Dec. 6.-- Ed and George Smith, of Kansas City, and Amos Phillips, of Rich Hill, Mo., are confined in jail here, charged with being implicated in the Leopold Edlinger murder.
Phillips is also reported to have confessed tonight that he was travelling in one wagon, the Smiths in another and Edlinger in a third, and all camped together the night the murder was committed. They were sleeping under their wagons when Phillips was awakened by the firing of a gun. He ran to Edlinger's wagon where he found the Smiths standing over Edlinger, who was wounded but not dead. One of the Smith brothers struck Edlinger over the head with the blunt end of an ax and even then Edlinger lived for two hours.
Phillips is said to have also stated that he was threatened with death if he divulged the facts. He was forced to haul the body for a long time before it was thrown into the water.

LOCKED IN FREEZER

Roy Driver, manager of the consumer's Warehouse store in Springfield, spent a cold night in the store's freezer after robbers locked him and a watchman inside the 36-degree space.
They spent two hours in the cooler while the robbers made off with nearly $5,000 dollars, but refused to take nearly $10,000 worth of checks.
The police were notified, where they found Driver and watchman Lee Wallace shivering in the freezer. A similar robbery had recently occurred in an Ottawa, Kansas, Safeway store where two employees had also been locked in a cooler. The police said there was no known connection.

I didn't want to get up early today. I forgot which clocks I turned back last night and had to get up to see what the real time was. I wish they would do away with daylight savings.

THIEVES STRIKE 7-UP PLANT

The Seven-Up Bottling Company was the victim of a robbery when thieves burned their way through the company safe, making off with $500 in cash and checks.
Officer Orville Beers looked over the tools the thieves used and noticed they, themselves, may have been lifted from a Sears Roebuck store in Joplin. The thieves at the bottling plant used the company's portable acetylene torch to burn their way through the back of the safe. A cash box from the plant was found on North Prospect Avenue.

The Mansfield Mirror (Wright County) April 17, 1913

A ROBBER CLUE ?

While fishing near Manes the other day, Dr. F.H. Riley found the following note hidden and kept in place by a piece of iron.
"Hurry up and come on to town. I have been here twice to meet you and you have not come yet. Get a move on you for I am damn near dead. You understand and know who it is."
The note is written on the back of an envelope stamped at the Manes post office April 8. The bank of Mansfield was robbed the night of the 8th. Whether or not the bandits had a rendezvous near manes may never be known, but it is possible this note was written by one member of the gang to another, or maybe not.
