THIRTY CENTS AND A GUN

Two masked robbers entered the Missouri Pacific depot at Independence about 1 o'clock this morning, robbed the money drawer of 30 cents and took a revolver from Night Operator Williams.
Williams had locked the door of the depot and was eating his lunch when one of the robbers appeared at a window and covered him with a gun. Williams stooped under the window and ran along out of the range of the robber's gun and secured his own revolver. He shot once, when the second robber broke in the door of the depot and caught him. They took his gun from him and while one stood guard over him the other rifled the money drawer.

BOMB WOUNDS BANK ROBBER

Pacific, Mo., Feb 8---Fighting off a posse with a bottle filled with explosives, a man suspected of having robbed the Farmers and Merchants Bank of St. Clair, Franklin county, Mo., today was seriously injured when the bottle exploded in his hand.
He was captured with 5 companions after a revolver battle with a posse of 100 farmers. The loot was found in a sack on the second story of an abandoned house. The injured man was positively identified as Charles Barrington of St. Louis.
The posse cornered the 6 alleged robbers in a deserted building. Barrington came to the door with a bottle in his hand and threatened to throw it in the crowd if they attempted to advance. As he drew back his arm to hurl the bottle, it hit the door and exploded. His arm and parts of his face was torn off. His companions surrendered. About $10,000 was obtained by the robbers who blew open the safety deposit vault of the bank.

PRISONER ESCAPES

Richard Meyer, 20 years old, escaped from the workhouse where he was being held as a prisoner, Friday afternoon. The escape was immediately reported to the police, but Assistant Chief Pickel declared he knew nothing about it.
Meyer was sentenced 60 days in the workhouse and had served but 48 hours of his term when he made his escape. He had been detailed with the chain gang for work in the clay pits and it was while working there that he made his successful dash for liberty. Several shots were fired at him by the guards, but he eluded them before he reached the river bank. Meyer was convicted of petit larceny.
The report that Meyer jumped into the river and swam to friends who were waiting for him in a skiff, according to several workhouse guards, is entirely unfounded.

PRISONER ESCAPED AT DE SOTO

Theodore Rousseau, who was being held at the Lexington hotel, De Soto, by City Marshal Fulcher for Mississippi officers, escaped at night. Fulcher had retired for the night, leaving the prisoner in the hands of two guards. The guards suddenly found themselves at the point of a revolver, and were commanded to march downstairs. The prisoner followed, and, on reaching the street, he mounted a horse which was in waiting and fled. A sister who visited him is suspected of laying the plan of escape.
