ARRESTED IN BANK VAULT

Jamesport, Mo., May 7---Bond of $1,500 was fixed today for O.T. Hampshire, fifty years old, Jamesport confectioner, following his arrest yesterday on a charge of stealing from the Home Exchange bank vault.
Expecting a visit by a petty thief, Night Marshal Gale Justus hid himself in the vault, Hampshire, he charges, entered and scooped up what loose cash he could find.
His command to surrender disregarded, the marshal fired, slightly wounding Hampshire in the arm. Money found upon the latter amounted to about $25 in bills and several dollars in nickels and dimes. Hampshire entered the bank vault ostensibly to visit his safety deposit box.
Before he was taken from the bank, Hampshire paid over $700, the amount officials believed him to have taken over a period of several months. Preliminary hearing has been set for next Monday.

BANDITS ROB MAIL TRUCK IN ST.LOUIS

St. Louis. Apr 2---Nine pouches of registered mail were obtained in a holdup of a mail truck in the business district here today. Police asserted it was the boldest robbery in the city's history. The mail was for delivery to large business firms, including banks and brokerage houses.
Chief Postoffice Inspector Reuter stated a hurried check-up showed there were 327 registered letters in the pouches and indications were that their value would not exceed $2,000.
The truck was on its way from the postoffice to a substation at the time of the robbery.
At Fourth and Pine streets, near the substation, it was announced, a dark colored touring car drove alongside the truck and five men jumped out. They covered the chauffeur of the truck and the messenger. Both of whom were armed with shotguns, and compelled the messenger to get into the touring car.
The chauffeur of the mail truck then was ordered to drive to an alley about four blocks away. The messenger was relieved of his keys and the cage door of the truck was opened by the robbers. The robbers threw the mail into the touring car, and, after placing the messenger and chauffeur into the cage of the truck, drove off. A negro passing by several minutes later, released the messenger and the chauffeur.
