FROM UNDER HIS PILLOW

A newsboy is accused of stealing a pocketbook containing $10 and some valuable papers from under the pillow of A. Drisby, a patient at the Missouri Pacific Hospital last night.
The boy went through the wards, and Drisby bought a paper, paying him from a pocketbook from under his pillow. He replaced the book, and the boy sat down to chat for awhile. After the boy left Drisby discovered that the pocketbook was gone also.
The hospital people know the boy by sight, but the police had not been able to locate him at the late hour last night.

SECURED BOOTY WORTH $119

While two families slept yesterday morning, a burglar crept through the house, and, after searching every room, secured booty valued at $119.
The property was taken from the home of Adam Doetzel, who, with his family, occupies the second floor of No. 1306 South Eighth street, and Mrs. Emma Spinner, who lives in the lower apartments.
Drawers, trunks and closets were ransacked, and pockets were turned inside out by the industrious looter, who must have worked a full twenty minutes while his victims slept peacefully.
From Mr. Doetzel's trousers, which hung on the bed, near his pillow, the burglar took $3.50, and from other places of safekeeping, he stole a gold ring valued at $9.50, another ring said to be worth $5, Mrs. Doetzel's wedding ring, valued at $10, a pair of gold ear-rings, $85 in currency, which Joseph McCluskey, of No. 6807 Pennsylvania avenue, left with Miss Mary Doetzel, and a pair of ear-rings belonging to Mrs. Spinner.
The burglar entered the house through a window in Mrs. Spinner's kitchen, after cutting the slate in the shutter and raising the catch-bolt.

TRAMP RAID AT ST. JOSEPH

St. Joseph, Mo., Sep 16---A general police alarm was sounded at 4 o'clock this afternoon when panic-stricken residents of South Park, a suburb, telephoned in that an army of tramps were looting residences and offering occupants indignities.
A large squad of police reinforced by deputy sheriffs quickly went to the scene, and found that several kitchens had been invaded. Some of the hoboes were rousted, several placed under arrest and others who were wanted made their escape.
Five of the gang drove Mrs. Christian Sturm, a delicate little woman, and her children from home and raided the larder.
Mr. Sturm was notified, and, accompanied by a number of male residents of the suburb, captured the quintette, tied them to trees and vigorously applied a blacksnake to their bare backs. The police are inclined to make no more arrests of tramps, for the reason that Police Judge Doniphan at once sets them free.

BANDITS TAKE TO THE BRUSH

Springfield, Mo., Sep 17---The dead bandit who was killed in the attempt to rob Charles Duffner, in Dallas county, twenty miles north of this place, Thursday, has been identified as a man named Hill, who resided at Cross Timbers, a small town in Hickory county.
The sheriff's posse which went in pursuit of the two robbers who escaped after the killing of Duffner and Hill, came across the bodies of the two horses which the fleeing bandits rode. They were found in some brush about eight miles north of where the tragedy occurred, and bullet holes in the heads showed that the robbers had shot them when being forced to take to the brush on foot.
The sheriff's posse is still in pursuit, and it is believed the men will be captured, in which case a lynching is liable to occur. The people of Dallas and adjoining counties are greatly excited over the affair, and a reward of $300 for the capture of the two men has been offered.

BREAKS SAFE WITH HAMMER

Breaking open a small safe with a blacksmith's hammer, a robber stole $500 from the store owned by H.B. Prather and H.D. Montague at Prathersville, five miles north of Columbia on the Blackfoot gravel road, and escaped in an automobile. The robbery occurred after midnight last night, but was not discovered until this morning when the owners opened the store for business.
After breaking through the doors to get into the store, the thief moved the safe to a back room. Next he broke into the blacksmith shop next door, where he borrowed a hammer which he used to break into the safe.
After taking $500 from the safe, he appropriated a pair of shoes from the shelves and left without disturbing a pile of checks amounting to $100. By the automobile tracks it was learned that the thief drove up to the store from the south and departed in the same direction.
