STEALS FROM HIS EMPLOYER, BINDS AND GAGS HIMSELF

John Miller, a clerk in the drug store of N.H. Allen in Kirkwood, robbed his employer Sunday night, and secreted the spoils in an outhouse, then locked the front door, broke a plate-glass window and bound and gagged himself to await the coming of Allen yesterday morning and relate to him a thrilling story of how he had been assaulted by a long and a short man.
Allen believed his employee's tale, but the physical facts connected with the holdup did not fit with the story sufficiently well to satisfy Town Marshal P.A. Secrest and he placed Miller under arrest. After a little sweating, he broke down and confessed that the deed was planned and executed by himself.

A warrant charging Miller with burglary was afterwards issued by Justice J. Will Barron of Webster Groves, and he was locked in jail at Kirkwood to await further developments.
Miller planned the robbery carefully. After locking the front door he took $60.04 from the cash drawer and over $12 worth of toilet articles, and secreted them in a valise in the coal shed. He placed his ring and watch in the valise to add proof to his story that he had been robbed.

Miller then, according to his own story, broke a hole in the front window, went in a rear room and got on a bed. There he tied his feet first, then his left hand to a bed post. He had prepared a slip noose in which to put his right hand, after first pushing a broom handle through the crook in his left arm so that it would also run through the crook in his right arm.
Then he pulled hard and bound and bucked himself in a manner that would have done credit to an expert. Before getting on the bed, he gagged himself with a towel. After securing himself, Miller said that he concluded that he had chosen the wrong method, and that it would have been better to have fled with his ill-gotten goods. He tried to get loose to try the other method but could not move.

When Allen went to the store yesterday morning he found his clerk bound and gagged and almost suffocated. He released him from his predicament. As soon as Miller recovered his breath he told his employer that a tall and a short man had done the work and afterwards crawled out of a hole that they had broke in the window.
Secrest had the tallest man in Kirkwood to try and reach the hole that had been broken, but he did not succeed. This punctured a part of Miller's story and he finally broke down and admitted the theft. He told where the money and goods could be found, Secrest and Allen went to the shed and found both.

Miller is only 16 years old, and is a son of John C Miller of Palmyra, Mo. He was working for a cement company in Hannibal, but was not progressing satisfactorily, and his father asked him to do better about a month ago. This angered the youth so much that he quit his job, got his clothes and ran away to St. Louis, from there he went to Kirkwood to answer an ad that Allen had inserted in a St. Louis newspaper.
